You should have bought the Timesplitters games...especially if they had Future Perfect. Not a cheap game and rarely seen in the wild.
They had both Timespliters 2 and Future Perfect, two of the Harry Potter games 3 and 4 I think, 3 copies of Shark Tales and 007.. I never realised Time Splitters was a rare game or I would have bought.. I did buy the Gamecube Wallace and Grommit game as I never heard of it and I remember you saying the Cartoon Gamecube games always seem to be pricey.. Dora the Explorer certainly is

Stolen Goods had a few cube games for 99p Need for Speed, Matrix and Surf Boarding

Do you reckon its worth going back and getting them?

Well, i'd certainly go and buy the two Timesplitters games. Should net you a decent profit, or a good trade on here :)

Those two Harry Potter's are very common...but The Philosopher's Stone is uncommon on the cube, buy that one if you ever see it cheap.

Talking to one of my friends over here and he's getting an Xbone and no longer wants his Wii U. His loss, my gain! :D I got:

Black 32GB Wii U
2 Wiimote + controllers
Black Pro controller

Avengers Assemble
Batman: Arkham City Armoured Edition
Ben 10 (pfft)
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
New Super Mario Bros Wii U
Nintendoland
Transformers Prime

All for $200 8) I then stopped by EB games and picked up Zombie U & Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper for about $30. Happy days!

The Woman in the shop was trying tell me that one of the Harry Potter Games was worth money.. I think I should pick up Gamecube games regardless as a lot of people here collect them..

The shop that had Shadow Hearts and Impossible Mission had all 360 sports games this time.. Charity Shop in Newport had about 30 PS2 games today all sports and platinum games Kingdom Hearts 1 was about the best.. And something called Herclule which looked like it was drawn in Paint Shop

if anyone deserves criticism about games choices its me, I have bought some real duds over the years. Plus one of the game genres I really like are board game and tv gameshow conversions, although weakest link and who wants to be a millionaire were rubbish on the ps1, would have been better on ps2 with more cutscenes and a general feeling of being a contestant on the show. A couple of games I am hoping to get one day are wheel of fortune and battleships both on the Genesis
