The Christmas / New Year Game Sales

I've yet to buy anything in the sales, although I did treat myself to Animal Crossing DS, Mario Kart DS, Kirby Power Paintbrush, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, Gripshift & Tokobot just before Christmas.  I did visit my local GAME, but the crowd of roughly 1500 people made me do a u-turn in the doorway.

Don't think you missed much as, for once, many of the cheap cheapers are on the website as well.

The Game in my local was rammed and you needed a giant shoe-horn to get someone out of there. The 'Game Smell' was worse than ever, as well.

God of War and Tekken 5 from Tesco.com for £12.97 each, minus a five pounds off voucher I got off some kind soul in the Bargains folder.

I've been in about 5 Game shops around London and Reading and there's the sum total of fuck all in any of them. I think all these people with their 98p games are lying swine. Or lucky swine. Swine.

There were plenty on GAME's website and I even bagged a couple in store.

Why!? For eBay, I assume?  :)

Like I said, I had no intention of getting one, but I was in Spain the week before Christmas so I thought I would have a look for just one premium pack to sell on (CEX were offering good money, so I figured what the hell). Of course, once I had one in my hands I started to think about keeping it. So I went on a hunt for some more, which resulted in me getting the other two - one I sold to my brother for a nice profit, the other to another friend at retail price, the other I kept.

I did pass up at least another 3 premium and 5-7 core packages, too, none in crappy bundles and all at RRP. I did have to bring them back in a suitcase, though, which was bloody heavy.

All that said, I still haven't taken mine out of the box.

Well, I succumbed to my gaming whims and finally ordered Dragon Quest VIII, and Shadow of the Colossus from VG+. I also managed to bag a copy of Ico from them too, at £14.

Still, when I factored in postage, it came to £80-odd. That'll be that for games for a while now.

Until the next time...argh.
