I still haven't received FFXIII (apparently, some bloke came to deliver it this morning, rang, but the missus didn't wake up quickly enough... and since he couldn't have access to my mailbox, he left without leaving any note...), so I bought Tekken 6 & Band Hero to wait till I finally get the damn copy.

I don't know whether it was DHL, FedEx, UPS... but it's not the first time they just show up and leave without a trace if no one was there... :roll:

Great game! How much did you spend on this one?
£9.55 including postage.
Bargain! I paid nearly three times this for mine... it was brand new though.

I'd noticed a few expensive ones on ebay which is why I had a dabble on this one, it arrived today, box is a bit tatty but It's nothing to complain about.

I've got rid of the bug-riddled FIFA 10 and have got back 09, due to (I think) it's more robust gameplay and better controls. Also got MW2 again, but found the disc was seriously cracked, so took it back and found there were no more copies, so had the money put onto a card. BAH! :(

Get BF:BC2 instead, MW2 is amateurish in comparison.

That's what I was thinking of getting. Is there a demo in XBL?

It was up for a limited period only.

The single player is better on MW2 (and both incredibly short), but the MP on BF:BC2 is excellent. I know a lot of COD diehards who are abandoning it for Battlefield, it's harder to master but way more rewarding :)

Hmmm...I'm torn now. I loved playing MW2 online, but if BC2 is better.
Thing is I hated BC when I tried the demo, so am a bit nervous of getting this, considering the amount of new games I've bought and traded back in over the past month or two.

Last week I picked up F355 Challenge: Passione Rossa (DC) from Gamestation.

I assume it must be for the Xbox 360. Alternatively, you could switch to the PS3 version if the copy is still available at the store.

Yeah, it was for 360. Thing is, I don't want to have to go through and get all my achievements again, as I've got roughly 85% of them and am at Prestige Level 1 Rank 46 (I think)

I am trying to cut down on the buying for the rest of this month. This week I have bought zilch so far and I am really struggling to not buy anything. There seems to be more stuff I want know than I did last week. :(
