Got a stock alert from GAME saying that "Warhammer Space Marine" was back in stock at £1.98.

Thought it might be a risk ordering from them but for two quid why not?

Just got an email saying it's been dispatched! :D

Get these. I have one.

Perfect for PSP, the d-pads stick on and last for a long time. My current has been on there 2 years!
Will I be able to do diagonals then? Might give this a try.

off the ebay for £60 including postage :) needed most of the games so thats always good!

Image

got the Crystal Xbox (with all its pads and leads) for £15 (includes the games as well)

got the game and watch collection from the Club Nintendo store for my points, will probably sell this though to get some money to full the sega collection that im pining for, and the sonic book and CD were from Ebay :) for about £2 each. the Cd has the same cover art as the other i got recently but is from holland so numbered differently and has a slightly altered track listing :)

Yeah I can play Gradius on the PSP with it very well. (not well, but to my censored standard!)


Picked up Haunting Ground and Deadly Premonition from the new CEX in town. Loads of great items in there including a MGS3 Subsistance.

Shanghai (Lynx) £4.50 - Really enjoyed playing this game last night, works really well.

Batman Animated Adventures (GB) £3.50
Riddick Bowe Boxing (GB) £4.00
James "Buster" Douglas Boxing (MD) £2

I don't know why I pick up so many retro boxing games as they are almost all rubbish. My passion for the sport helps to create unrealistic expectations I think.

Pokepark 2 for my boy - for a game aimed at 7+ its remarkably linear and very patronising in its childishness. Disappointing and annoying to listen to as well.

Otherwise got

2x Ultraman vinyl Kaiju figures

Flipnic (Ps2)- 50p crack converters
a pretty good DC controller - 99p from the same place

I slowed down my buying and focus my collecting on MD stuff - so not much buying any more

Though I do buy stuff to list on Amazon / Ebay to fund collecting - how it was supposed to be.

Normally I post a photo of WOT I BORT, but it's Super Bust-A-Move, and no one wants to have to look at that.
