    I'm with you on Battlefront. Spent £50 and played it maybe 4 times. Also Watchdogs, so boring. I got it on sale at least though.

    Yoshi's New Island, that was one game I had the highest hopes for and it SUCKED! The music was bad, the gameplay was boring and simple, it was insultingly easy, and worst of all, it had the balls to claim to be a "Yoshi's Island" game. I couldn't even get myself to finish it and just sold it. I pirated it recently, hoping that having not spent money on it would make it better. It didn't, the game still sucked.

    Enter the Gungeon was a recent game that I promptly returned, it was just generic indie trash among the other 50000 roguelikes out there.

    Rise of the Guardians on the Wii U. Wouldn't it have killed Activision to optimize the game? Its below 30 FPS all the time. Ended up getting credit for it at a local game store and got NFS: Rivals with the credit

    I got a tablet/e-reader, but in paying $100, it didn't run very well. It only had 100MB RAM and no updates. It also only ran Android 2.3.3 and was useless. Couldn't return it though, I broke the screen by accident.

    The power bank I picked up a few months ago. I thought that it would be useful to carry around in my bag at uni. Turns out there are enough power points lying around if I want to charge something and it was just taking up space in my bag. There goes $20.

    I can't regret anything, I only bought one game in my life and that was skyrim which is a great game. The shitty ones (and other great ones) were all pirated :P

    Cube Life, because it's bad
    These CDs, because I thought they were good, like it's predecessors. But they turned out to be disappointments
    Mario Party 5, because I thought it'd be as cool as Mario Party 4, but I only touched it twice. worst 50 bucks ever spent lol
    The cooling because it turned out not to be as effective as expected and it's to late to return it

    Depends on the setup, most closed looped systems are about the same as normal high end heatsinks they are just norm quieter. Now a custom built one should deff be more effective its just stupid expensive.
