Crikey! that's a fair old whack to pay for Soul Calibur, you can pick it up complete on fleaBay for 99p :?

Gamestation by any chance?

bought yesterday

Seven samurai 20XX - thank god this only cost me £3, god awful controls, graphics were ok, looks like a mid range PS2 game, but just cant get into it. Kurosawa must have been spining in his grave when this was annouced AND official endorsed by his estate!!

Way of the samurai 2 £4 - not to bad, better then SS20XX, little slow gameplay wise, but slowly getting into it.

I know but it was just there ljust looking at me :). The disc was also in great condition (box ok) Haven't seen it on ebay for less than a few pounds exc p+p so I just bought it. Loving the fact that all these first gen 360 titles are now so cheap to pick up. CEX have loads for between £5 and £7.

I'll do some Perfect Dark 0 co-op with you. I never did finish it on secret agent mode (its been a while since I played it but I'm not terrible at it!)

Got any game in mind? At the moment I'm playing a lot of Guitar Hero 3 and I'd like to go through GOW sometime in Co-op.

Taito Legends 2 (PS2)- I have become addicted to PuchiKarat
New Zealand Story (DS)- Stores are evidently not selling these, I had to order mine online

A friend of mine also cleaned out her apartment this week and decided that she never is going to play the Sega Dreamcast. So I ended up with free copies of DOA and KoF. And a random copy of Suikoden V for PS2.

Recent purchases for me include...

A job lot of 15 boxed Master System games for £10, including Operation Wolf, Choplifter, Castle of Illusion, Action Fighter and Lord of the Sword.

Star Wars Rebel Strike, Eggo Mania and Bloody Roar: Primal Fury for the Gamecube, all around £4-5 each.

For the express purpose of playing Pac-Man Vs on the GC, I got a GBA SP in working but 'well used' condition with 1 game for £13, and a GC to GBA link cable.

A SNES Import Game converter for under £5 (from Amazon of all places) which then prompted me to get the following unboxed Super Famicom carts for about £4 each:

Pac-in-Time, SD Great Battle II, SD Great Battle Soccer 2, Kirby Bowl, Golden Fighter and Sandra No Daibouken.

I'm now considering getting a Super Famicom so I can play them at 60Hz as nature intended ;)

And for the N64 I got Mystical Ninja, S.C.A.R.S. and Robotron 64. So all in all a bit of a Nintendo-fest!

Oh, and I just ordered PS2 Guitar Hero II (inc Guitar) from CEX online for £32 inc P&P. Maybe I'll actually get it this time as I ordered the original GH from there a couple of weeks back and they neither dispatched the order or emailed me to tell me they couldn't fulfil it! :(

I hadn't bought a PSone game for ages because my machine is in my grandmother's back bedroom for storage purposes. However, I now have functioning PlayStation emulation on my PC, so I treated myself to some new stuff. I got Tomb Raider (£2.99) and Ridge Racer Type 4 (£2.99) from Gamestation and Final Fantasy's VII and VIII (£9.99 each) and Mobile Light Force (the Western localisation of excellent Japanese shmup Gunbird, £1.99) from an independent shop in Nottingham the name of which I don't recall.
