I remember buying those Mario cards from my local Martins many moons ago.

Cool cards that I remember.

Game were doing 3 for 2. I dipped.

Lolipop Chainsaw £7.99
Zone of the Enders HD Collection £6.99
Tenchu Z Free (If I hate this I'm blaming people on the internet for hyping it)

Castlevanial Judgement £5
Akai Katana £5
Deadly Premonition Free (I know this is on steam but I heard the original 360 version had this incredible balance between wonderful and utterly terrible, which is the games appeal)

Child of Eden £1.99

Its not like it happens every day though. I spend alot of time making it known around my area that i will buy stuff-i will also pay more than car boot prices.I dont hassle people though, i just plant the seed of cash for unwanted "games" in the local folks brains. I reckon a decent-ish size bundle like that is 4/5 times a year.

Ace Combat Distant Thunder - PS2 - £1 in charity shop.

GTA San Andreas, Simpson Race Rage, Intellivision Anthology, GTA Vice City, Battle Engine Aquila, Canis Canem Edit - all PS2 £2 the lot from the dump.

CD holder of various PS1 and DVDs also from dump, £2.

I don't know why I keep buying PS2 stuff, I rarely fire the console up - the pile is getting out of hand.

Yes, there's a shop on site for charity... I asked about a Saturn...was told it was in the auction, went back, still there... Asked again and they were v vague about it, beyond "some bloke comes in.."

I might stir that up a bit...see what's what.

I picked up Splinter Cell for Wii U today as it was on sale. I love my Wii U but it's tricky to find a game where I can just mindlessly shoot things.

I really want to pick up the director's cut of Deus Ex but no stores seem to stock it.

I caved in and bought a PS4 Watch Dogs bundle, which set me back £175 after trading in loads of games and my Xbox 360 Slim S (I've still got my arcade console thought). Any one wants to add me, it's Jetsetwilly82
