To be fair it is pretty much mint (now i've swapped the box)

That's actually a good price, I've seen it sell for nearly double that.
Good. I don't feel (quite) so guilty now :D

I had NBA Live 06 (GC) arrive today. Had a PO missed you card as well. I'm pretty sure that's Shrek Smash and Crash Racing from Germany. I hope so, anyway. :)

Just back from Wakefield playing the £20 game! You basically take a crisp £20 note, and see how much you can bring back!

Image

£2.00 each from charity shop, all complete and in very good condition

Image

49p each new from GameStation (Medal of Honor still sealed)

Image

Game Boy Advance Link Cable (boxed with instructions) £1.99 from GameStation, Spectrobes on DS £1.98 from GAME

Image

As stickered from cEX to help boost my weak GameCube 'collection' in number (but not quality :lol: )

Grand total of £16.44 on games, £2.99 on a meal deal - £19.43! Can't wait to play again next week! :lol:

Left behind some pretty decent (albeit 'going rate' GameCube titles in cEX, also some crap from Cash Converters (£7.99 Game Boy Pocket unboxed with a card saying 'sold as seen' (hmmm), and Chessmaster/Columns cart only on Game Gear in the same shop). Also left behind literally about 20 different game guides in GameStation priced from 49p-£1.99 because either a) I don't and never will own the game or b) the rules of the £20 game :lol:

GAME/GameStation shelves looking incredibly bare and sale has truly wiped them out, GameStation in particular has nothing left but crappy sports sims below £3. Staff seem, understandably, very stressed and worried.

Don't know if it's a great price or not but cEx are doing Pokémon Colosseum on NGC for £12 preowned from your wants. They had three other Pokemon games too but they were around the £20 mark.

Zoocube's not a bad game actually - tricky to get to grips with at first, but absorbing once you do.

If one of those games was XD Gale of Darkness, £20 is still a good price.

Don't remind me, I still need that. Gaaah, the thought of a Pokemon game being expensive and maybe the last for the set drives me crazy. Can't believe I didn't find one yet locally, surely Pokemon must be common enough.

Not XD. I've only ever seen one out in the wild....and the seller knew what it was worth.
