I didn't realize that Quake 4 didn't have the Quake 2 bonus disc until I got home and they didn't have any in stock at EB Games, so I exchanged it for a different game:

Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (Xbox 360)

Never played it, and I know I'll probably suck big time since it looks a lot like SOCOM, but oh well.

If you can switch this one out, by all means do so. I really wanted to love this game (big fan of the original) but the impossible controls feel like swimming through molasses. I hate it.

Oblivion and Burnout Revenge are much better titles, if they're available among your choices. Do you get spending credits or something like that? Sounds nice.

Back on topic, I picked up Dead Rising yesterday. Really fun, but it took me awhile to figure out the crazy save feature.

Unfortunately, there weren't many games other than what I got. Plus, if I were to return it now, I wouldn't be able to get anything in its place (I get my money back, but I don't get the amount credited back onto my spending limit since the limits just reset).

The Silver Star, I presume? You're lucky for getting either of those games at a fair price for Sega CD, especially if they're in good shape and complete with everything.

All for the 360:

VGA Cable - $12
Fight Night Round 3 - $29
NBA 2K6 - $29
Madden 06 - $29

Toys R Us has a massive amount of games out going at fairly decent prices, as Smiley said. Seems this carried on to the AU stores too! :mrgreen: They have PS2, Xbox, 360, GC, GBA, DS, PC and a couple Wii, but the Wii games looked too childish for me.

What you have to realize about AU prices is that most of these were around the AU$100 mark when they first came out, which is a fairly decent price reduction. I've been meaning to get the Tony Hawk/Gun package as that's down from $110 to $40 here. Not sure if it's really worth it, even though the games equal $20 each. :lol:

Actually, I bought it right here on the forums from Arrowhead when he posted this topic. It was $28 shipped, which I found to be a fair price, especially since I have never played Lunar before.

Heh, that is quite a good price (not as good as I paid years ago ($15), but I digress). I probably would have snatched that up, if I didn't think that APE got it.

EDIT: Aww... Nobody else has replied. No matter...

Here's what came with my Xbox 360, which I picked up today:
Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged Volume 1 (Bejeweled, Geometry Wars, Wik, Texas Hold'em Poker, Outpost Kaloki X, Hardwood Backgammon)
Kameo
Project Gotham Racing 3
Viva Pinata Special Edition
Dew

From the EB sale on:

PC:
Ghost Recon Complete Collection (Ghost Recon + Desert Siege + Island Thunder) $9.91
SWAT 4 Gold Edition $34.97
WWII Online Battleground Europe $4.95 :lol: I got it coz it was less than $5

Wii:
Excite Truck $69.95 I then wondered over to BigW and saw it for $58.95
Metal Slug Anthology $49.97


These are all AU prices, so I thought Metal Slug and SWAT4 were pretty decent prices. Excite Truck would have been a good price had I bought it from BigW for cheaper. :lol:
