I've bought so many things over the past few weeks. a mix of old and new, Wii to amstrad and snes. i'll have fun hacking through them over easter whilst doing my work (especially mario is missing on pc)

finally managed to get through my uni work & as a treat this week, i've bought myself:

--- the sims 2 bon voyage expansion pack :P (£9.99 half-price in woolworths at the mo)

--- & my much anicipated final fantasy XII (DS) :P (£19.99 special offer in game)

i is a happy banana! :D :twisted:

I'll tell you when I get to the random shopping centre I've never heard of but is apparently the final destination of the bus that stops outside my house.

Or it's all a trick and you'll never hear from me again.

You'd better search for me at least as hard as that Maddie.

I went to my local retro shops yesterday, but found nothing I really wanted (I could have bought Final Fantasy Anthology & Shenmue, but £23 for the former was too much, and I already have Shenmue, only not an official copy)
So I bought Guitar Hero 3 instead! Yeah!!! :D

I was also watching several auctions on ebay (Super Mario RPG & Castlevania Legends, all in superb conditions), but I was outbid by a few dollars... (they went both for $102).

True...
I'm exactly like you, I hate to start a new game if I haven't finished the previous one, particularly new games & the bloody achievements that make me play my games to death... :lol:

Ghost Squad on Wii. Game are selling it for £20, while GameStation have it for £28. This irks me.

I always liked Harvest Moon games, I bet the one of the Wii is well good. Do you have to do things like a shovel action on the Wiimote to dig holes in your garden? That would be pretty cool.

Well I had a look abut the shops and tbh there wasn't much that took my fancy, games are SO overpriced in the shops, esp things like The Orange Box, Halo 3, COD 4. Ended up buying Naruto: Rise of a Ninja lol, dunno why and it wasn't even particularly cheap. I've been told it's pretty damn good though..
