Picked up a few things today.

Kirby Mass Attack on DS £2, was cart and manual only but still a fantastic price plus comes with the Club Nintendo Code unused and in date
The Sims Medieval PC 50p
Bomberman DS complete, £3 is the USA version and liked the look of it, I paid a little more than I would have liked tbh.
Not sure if this was a good deal but I fancied it anyway, Streets of Rage on the Gamer Gear £3, is cart only not sure if it's a good version or a good price for it.

Hehe, sadly for me we sold our car in May, so I am very limited now in what I can get to, Seaford have 2 very low key ones, over the 4 years I've lived here, there seems to be scarcely any games. Mind you, the leisure centre has an indoor carboot style market around my birthday in November and that seems to be packed to the gills with bargains, I bought my Wii and 8 games for £25 there a couple of years back, the console looked like it had never been taken out of the box! So there is hope yet in 2013 for me. :lol:

I forgot to post about my little find on Sunday! Really good condition Shadow of The Colossus, CIB with instructions and art postcards for the princely sum of 50p.

I couldn't hand over my money fast enough! :D

I've barely been to any this year and when i have i've been after other things, rather than games. Doesn't stop me looking, of course, but i've already decided i'm not buying unless i see something specifically for my collection. This is getting increasingly unlikely as most of the stuff i'm looking for is imported. Obviously, if i see something valuable i'll pick it up so i can use it as trade material, but again, this is getting less likely with the sheer number of people i see hoovering up anything remotely retro....

I always live in hope, though! :D
