For that, I'd say that was a bargain. Nice find.

^ I had a rental copy of it eons ago, went for about £17-£18 on eBay in about 2004, really glad to have it back as I only sold it last time because I was well skint - like The Angry Jock says, mesmerisingly great game. Truly surprising nobody spotted it (though the shop it was in do have an odd way of mispricing games, like they'd sell a PS2 Pro Evo 3 at £3.50 because the logic goes the PS2 is a 'better' machine than the PS1, therefore the games should cost more, rather than what actually constitutes a saleable/great game and one that will *actually* sell. Nuts, though good nuts this time around!) :D

PS: Also happy to have Abe's Oddysee back, now I've re-bought both PS1 Oddworld games for 99p a pop from charity shops!!! :lol:

If you love Kurushi, then it's really worth picking up IQ Mania. That's if you have a PSP of course. :D

Not a game but if ytou are intrested in a new Wiimote/Nunchuck then seriously look into buying a Power A Pro Pack Mini. They are not cheap at £30 but they are fantastic. They are smaller than the standard Wiimote/Nnchuck but build so well, they have a rubberised coating which is perfect for grip and the D-pad on the Wiimote is much improved, Metroid Other M feels great now and not slightly awkward as before. I already beat my best time on Sonic 4 using it. Because they are smaller they use 2 x AAA batteries too.

It also has these fancy Blur LED lights under the buttons which looks very cool, I highly recommend one, itt makes going back to the Nintendo Nwiimote/Nunchuck feel almost cumbersome.

Looks pretty smart but at £30 it is not a purchase for me. Looking at getting Mario Kart Wii, the wife wants to play!

Pokemon HeatGold & Zelda the Phantom Hourglass on DS.

That's all I'll be buying for the month but it should be enough to keep me entertained! The lass behind the counter also gave me a free Professor Layton Rubicks Cube thing :D score!

Depends. Are you playing or just hoarding?
