SNES Classic Mini

I managed to pick up another one of these today for a friend from work and, considering how difficult they are to find online I thought I’d post how I managed to get this one for retail – or at least £10 above the RRP. Being out of stock online (you can get stock notifications…

Purchases this week

I hadn’t been planning on picking anything up this week but I saw The Surge on Base.com for less than £14 so I had to pick it up. I’m a big fan of the Dark Souls games (having played and completed Demon Souls, Dark Souls 1 to 3 and Bloodborne) so anything generally described as…

Gaming on a Budget – Part 3

We’ve covered Rule 3 now it’s time to look at Rule 2 (Wait) and give some information on how I grab myself a bargain.   Due to my massive backlog of games and the fact that I choose not play Online (that’s another post for discussion entirely) I’ve got no problem with waiting months or…

Gaming on a Budget – Part 2

So in my last post I covered a few rules to stick to whilst getting yourself some bargains for your game collection; now we’re going to go into some of these in more depth. I’m going to start with Rule 3 (Set Limits) as this is the one that I’d say is probably the most…

Gaming on a Budget – Part 1

I like my computer games and I own a lot – just look here for proof.  My wife says I buy too many but then I just ask her how many handbags she has and we move on to another topic and pretend that conversation never happened. You can buy and collect games without breaking the…

Purchases this week

I’ve had one of these on pre-order from Argos since the week they were announced and have been expecting a cancellation email ever since (despite the fact they took my money straight away!).  When I placed the order I read a lot of feedback about people having their orders cancelled without notice and so I’ve…

Purchases this week

I’m trying not to spend too much money as we’re in the process of moving house but I finally relented and picked this up new from Amazon for just under £18. I missed these games when they were out on PS2 and originally remastered for PS3 as I wasn’t into games so heavily at those…

Purchases this week

It’s been a very lucky week for me… I managed to pick up a near mint condition NES Mini Classic from one of my neighbours for retail (£50) and after over a year of looking I finally managed to get my hands on not one but TWO copies of the Blood and Wine Limited Edition…

Holiday Purchases

One of the benefits to holidaying in the UK (and always going to the same place) is that I get to do day trips to the local towns and check out a bunch of different shops that I don’t normally have access to.  Most of the time this consists of following my wife around craft…
