Picked up Kirby: Power Paintbrush for £4.99 from Game of all places.

Even the lass behind the counter said that it was cheap.

my brother bought dark souls limited edition but couldn't get on with it so i gave him what he paid for it,£15.
outer box is a bit worse for wear but everything else is in excellent condition and complete.
looking forward to being slaughtered continuously :D .

EDIT:after looking on steam i ended up getting deus ex:game of the year £1.49

Ordered a sealed Resident Evil 5 hardback strategy guide for just under a tenner from ebay (planning a second playthrough when I'm done with the first as I know I've missed loads of stuff) and also a Japanese Lollipop Chainsaw guide/artbook thing (just because I really like the game).

Nice looking PAL Dreamcast off ebay along with a (seperate) VGA box and DC-X bootdisc. Dreamcast Import Loveliness here I come! Good price too (tenner for the console, cables and pad and £1.05 for the VMU)

Picked up Farcry Instincts today for 99p for the Xbox.

Don't know if it will play on the 360 but for 99p I thought that I would give it a shot.

Absolutely AMAZING that game - but my copy back in the day had a glitch that put you right back to start of a level if you bit the bullet - even though it seemingly had checkpoints throughout the stage :? Once the game got tough, this was a nightmare. Otherwise it is superb. Hope it was just a small amount of the games and it didn't affect all copies.

Not sure if it counts as a console/computer, but I picked up a really good condition, boxed and complete Psion Revo personal organiser. It still has the box for the charger, all the warranty cards, software discs, manual, docking station and what have you.

All for £4 from the chazzer.

Just picked up the PC versions of Half-Life 2 (Episode One), and GTA-III for a quid each in a charity shop yesterday :)

Duke Nukem Forever - Yes, the game has gotten bad reviews, but I really want to try it out. Curiosity killed the cat, you know.
I also got a 3d poster with the game. Don't think i'll be hanging this on my wall. :?Image
Thief Deadly Shadows - Wow, this game is really great. :)
Tomb Raider - It's been 15 years since I played this one.
Ken sent me.

Mine didn't but I had never downloaded any of the updates.

My local GAME are back with their "3 for 2" special offer, so since I have a load of credit I bought: (all Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed II.
Divinity II: Dragon Knight Saga.
Infinite Undiscovery.
Lost Odyssey.

I already have the original Assassin's Creed, but never really bothered to play past the Animus Tutorial bit. The fact it wasn't what I thought it was going to be put me right off at the time. :? Since there seem to be about fifty thousand Assassin's Creed games out now (with another to come) I thought I'd give them a proper go.

The others are a typically standard set of JRPG type and open world Oblivion type games. Just the ticket! :lol:

Had a right string of bargains off of my local Facebook 'For Sale/Wanted' page. Usually there's jack all but recently it's been kind to me, the first of my pickups is this:

Lovely turqoise just like the one I had as a kid, initially I passed it over until I looked closer and saw that one of the included games was Harvest Moon 2. Anything related to Harvest Moon is A-OK by me so I snapped it up...for a crisp five pound note :mrgreen:

Decided to dust off my eBay account having not used it in a few months. Also felt bad I'd not bought any NGPC games in a while so ended up BINning:
Pac-Man
Puzzle Link
Samurai Shodown 2
