I looked at GBAX, the next day delivery seems appealing. Ohhh the dilemma :lol:

The next day delivery is what made me use them and hopefully it'll work out; if it does you'll know who to use! :)

I'm in Sutton Coldfield, north Birmingham, been there in my own place for about six years. I take it you're at either Aston or Central Birmingham for your course.

Good haul! How much did that set you back? The unofficial memory card/rumble pak you've got is a beast.

Over the weekend I got these:

First, console stuff, two PS2 games from eBay but the others were bargains in town (new games for 4.99, things like that):

Image

Second, a local store has been getting in a huge load of PC games, over 100 I think. Here's the first two bundles I carried home, the rest is reserved for me, will hopefully get that tomorrow:

(the Starcraft is an empty box unfortunately...)

Awesome PC haul. I love the big boxes that the old PC games had :D You must have some serious shelf space to store all of those!

Got my Luminous Arc 2 on the DS from ebay today to replace the incomplete copy I bought the other week. I have to say, for a niche game that was destined to sell tiny amounts of copies, the outer box and bundled OST CD are really nice touches.

Loved the first game so can't wait to get stuck into this one.

P.S. If anybody is interested in my other copy then PM me. It's the game (complete in box with manual) and the OST disc in it's clear sleeve. Just missing the outer card sleeve.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
