Another long gap since the last Recent Buys but it is October and a bunch of games that I’m excited for are starting to come out.
To kick off October, it started with the release of Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS.

That got me to decide on getting a Gamecube instead of a PS2 just for Super Smash Bros. Melee and then got a Wii in anticipation for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I’m planning to eventually get a WiiU but for now, the 3DS version should hold me off until then. (more…)
