Trading on forums.

I decided I want to trade some things on this forum as I don't like using eBay to sell on and I would rather get a game for a game (so to speak). I put a message in the " what games consoles have you bought this week" thread and I was just wondering if there is anyone I shouldn't trade with. Thanks ...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate for the Wii U. I've not played it yet though, the thought of having to tolerate that controller pains me. I may end up selling it even though I've just bought a game for it. I really do want to like it (cost me £300 plus with a game!) but it's just a terrible idea. You c...

Re: The official Xbox 720 thread

I'd give it at least six months before considering one myself. If we're lucky, they might even have the firmware finished by that point. Meeow! It'll be interesting to see if early adopters suffer the way they did in the last-gen, i.e. whether the first released hardware will have an equivalent of ...

Re: Retro games you have sold for FREAK prices?

I've mentioned this before but, I bought tales of symphonia for the gamecube from a charity shop for £1.99 a year ago it was still new and sealed.
Stuck it up on eBay as I already had a open copy and it sold for £101.99
Minus the eBay fees and the cost of the game I made £90 odd profit :)

Borderlands on xbox360.
A great game, sort of a mix between rage and fallout 3.
Anyway, I'll definitely be getting borderlands 2 at some point soon. :D
