  • My top three October game list matches this one.

  • Pokemon White 2 and Liberation Maiden were the only games I purchased last month. Caused me to save up a bit more for that Wii U I pre-ordered, but I don’t regret either purchase.

  • Virtue’s Last Reward for GOTY.

  • virtues last reward is GOTY

  • Pokemon Black 2 is my top game for this month.  It’s also the only game I played this month, so, yeah.

      Same here. I could have got something else, but I REALLY wanted that special edition of the Adventure Time game, so I preordered that instead. :3
