Cube prices in CeX here actually seem to be going up - SSBM from £12 to £20, Double Dash from £10 to £15...

Same here in Southport.

Some of you guys get all the luck, I have never even seen a Gamecube game in any of the charity shops were I live, nevermind found a genuine bargain in either a charity shop or CEX.

Put me down as a fan of Simpsons Hit and Run also, it's a good game, especially if you're a fan of the show, I think they put a lot of effort into it.

Love finding GC stuff cos most folk don't know the Wii will play them. Those that do tend to overprice them, even some Cash Converters-type shops are stupidly hoiking prices up but a lot of charity shops and markets stalls (and certain, untainted CC-type shops) don't know what to do with them, often find em for a quid or sometimes less. Ah, GC discs, dinky and svelte, the HuCards of the disc-based console world. :)

Yeah, I really enjoyed it too :) . I used to have it for the Gamecube and keep meaning to pick it up again for PS2 at some point.

A CC near me had the Resi remake in horrific condition (plastic sleeve all torn and hanging off the front of the case!) and it was proudly displayed as 'Rare game!'. Price? ten of your English pounds. Not sure if the game has risen to the £10 value yet but regardless, it wasn't worth more than a few quid in such a state. Also, "rare game"? Please...

Resi remake is about £6 - £8 here - Newport town sorry City centre is a slum even game sells stock cheaper.. When I was in Cardiff CEX they where charging about £5 more, said the Newport branch is doing it cheaper.. And they said nobody goes to Newport hence the cheaper price..

We have shelves of Resi 0, Resi 4 and Resi remake

from the what have you bought thread £1 each

Image

007 game doesn't have a manual and the front plastic is ripped,metroid was originally in the case so i swapped them as soon as i got back.
the nfs disc has a scratch on it and vendetta was loose inside and is scratched to hell,so i'm not expecting that to work (i didn't know it was in there so i haven't paid for it).
everything else is complete and looking good.

the lady in the shop said she thinks there are more in their lock up,she's going to have a look and give me first refusal so my fingers are crossed for a few more must have GC games like metroid.

oh and i'm another who likes the simpsons hit and run,i've played it through a few times on ps2 and would recommend it to anyone.

When I popped into CEX about a week ago Cube games had dropped slightly in price but still slightly too much.

As for Simpsons, I fall on the meh side. Bought it and tried it before selling it. Loads of people on here went on about it so bought it again, tried it for longer and still found it to be meh.

Is Ikaruga worth spending £20 odd quids on when I have the DC version?

If you have a decent PC wait for the steam version to be released. PAL gamecube version of Ikargua is like 50hz and stuff, I'm sure the japanese version is good though.

It also has very obvious visual glitches. Avoid.

Ah, never knew that, assumed it was only the 50hz thing (the idiots!) really don't feel so bad about giving the PAL GC version away when I got the XBL version. ;)

XBL version is pretty good tbh. I'd still like to grab it on DC some time though.
