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.
