99p for all 3 :D
Awesome games 2 and 3. Not so keen on the first mind. Great price. The Subaru sounds amazing in no 3!

Anybody know if this is any good?
Not meant to be amazing but something I would like to see. Some clever ideas iirc.

GAME have many PSP games on sale. I picked up Mega Man Maverick Hunter X (£2.99) and Tekken Dark Resurrection (£4.99). This is the first time I've purchased any PSP games for well over a year.

An original Gameboy, with case.
A PS2 with Ratchet Deadlocked/Gladiator
A PS1 with Time Crisis, gun and an extra controller.
Quake for the N64.

Not bad haul at an car boot sale, all under £10, and all works.

Not bought much this week although I have noticed the shelves of my local Crack Converters and such like appear to be filling up more and more with current gen - especially loads of Wii/DS/PSP/XBOX360 games. PS3 games seem a bit harder to come by.

And whilst there are still plenty of last gen available there seems to be a lack of new stock coming in. Could this be the beginning of the end for seeing PS2/XBOX/GC games on the high street?

I managed to get a new, sealed copy of Tales of Eternia for the PSP for less than it was originally sold for. That has been my gaming Holy Grail for over a year now.

Now to bask in the glow of lovely 2d graphics and wooden voice acting :D

Another excellent PSP game.

Where did you get it from at that price? (If you don't mind me asking).

I got Ocean Commander for the PS2 today, I thought the DS version was alright and it's out for the Wii as well but there's no pal version.

I've been quite busy with a few things over the past few months which have kept me away from the gaming quite a bit. Though have bought a handful of things over the past week or so:

Australian Rules Football (Commodore 64)
Australian Rules Football (ZX Spectrum)
Batman: Arkham Asylum (XBOX 360)
Halo: Reach (XBOX 360)
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (XBOX 360)

I'll be in Melbourne in about 2 weeks, so will have to keep an eye out down there - I remember one of their Game Traders stores being quite good a couple of years back. I'm also thinking I'll get a new 360 in the next month or so (my original from 2006 is finally on its way out ... it has been a good run though).
