Awesomeware - You were almost a Jill Sandwich

The thrift is strong with you

Probably the last thrift before christmas, Excited to see some gamecube stuff in a dove house in between the standard fair of burnout and spongebob, Spiderman was mario kart double dash, They were all a £1 each so I swiped them all, Almost thought I had won really big when I saw mario kart had the 2 disc case.

But on Closer inspection the second disc wasn't the Zelda OOT Master quest disc, It was Urbz Sims in the city, So close, Still double dash for £1 totally awesome.

A Few years back I was speculating about what I called the Thrift shift, where current and last gen turn up more often than Retro and sixth generation 128 bit era stuff.

This was in full swing in a local Barnardo's I visit from time to time, The only thing is the pricing isn't there yet, all of these games were priced at £4.99 each, with some of these titles that is a bargain, Coming in about 1, 2-3 quid under the Cex price.

I have most of these anyways and the Trade and cash on all of these is £5 trade or under, less for cash, So nothing in it for anyone, If only they had priced them at £1.99 everyone would of taken at least one or two of their hand.

Looks like we're going to be seeing a lot more copies of killzone on PS4 as well, Pretty much the system's flagship tat title.

So Star Wars and christmas are pretty much intertwined this year, I am of to see the new movie on monday, Can't wait, It's at this point I always look for a video game counterpart to the movie I am about to nerd out on, Luckily I picked up Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition on the thrift this week.
Cex Still Sell Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition for £12, It's one of them games where all the DLC is on the disc, A fantastic bunch of extras you can change the skin of your character to other popular star wars characters, Luke, Qui Gon, Darth maul.

The Game tries its best to set a new story in the gap between Sith and New hope, It's alright as far as video game narratives go, The area this game shines the most tho is in the way it handles the force powers and lightsaber.

You can pretty much force push, Anything into your enemy, force lighting, Lobbing you light saber it's all here and then some, If you seen this one cheap, Be sure to pick it up you will not regret it.

Virtual thrift

 Some Christmas presents, Fallout 4 and black ops 3, My Call of duty experience has been up and down for years, The most fun I have ever had with it would of being black ops 2.

So black ops 3 seems like one I should check out, plus this has Local Co-op on nearly all the modes present in the game, This is becoming evermore a rarity now days, So not just points for COD, But Multiplayer in general, Points to treyarch for realizing that local multiplayer is paramount in most seasoned gamers eyes.

All the other games above mark the last order I will make from, What was not the best service in the world, but always kept you coming back because of the strange pricing on most playstation 2 games it was near impossible not to find a bargain.

 The site as been rebranded as MusicMagieStore, It does seem a lot easier to use but with this rebranding the prices seem to be more on point, this seemed to be happening in the twilight of the site when it was still thats entertainment, Where I would find items for £1.99, Then after 5 I could not purchase them anymore, Or times wheen I would try to buy something for £1.99, Then the website would have some kind of error, Then upon returning to the main page to try again the Item would have jumped up in price.

Like the games I picked up this week off there, 2 Copies of resident evil dead aim £1.99 each, Great price, And now on MusicMagpiestore, Resident evil Dead aim £9.99, Still we had a good run and I will still check the new site from time to time, lets hope the Virtual thrift can stay plentiful a while longer.

So I was having a bit of a rant a while back about the Playstation Plus free games not really been up to scratch, This month however I really have to hand it to them for the choice available, The King's quest remake,That has definitely being on my radar, And the new Gauntlet Game. 

This is really what made me think get it!, It is quite bare bones compared to other entries in the series and It's hard as nails, All are things that appeal to me when it comes to hack and slash this is more akin to the original gauntlet games then dark legacy or Seven sorrow, Definitely worth my subscription fee this month
