Picked up a lot of quality buys in my view over the last few days, I've spent around 200 in the last few days on DVD's and Games.

Grabbed most of them for 20:

Driver 3 - Wouldn't pay 40 for it but I think it's an alright game at 20 if a little frustrating at times.

POP2 - Haven't played the Xbox version yet, got it again at 20 but I was impressed with the PC version, also got it for the live content and the extra live modes too - looks like a good buy.

Flatout - Again I enjoyed the PC demo and I've been patiently waiting for this to go down in price and I picked it up today in Gamestation for 20, so I'll be giving this a bash on live later hopefully.

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection - Again another 20 bargain I've wanted for a few weeks which I have been holding back for. Seems impressive and it certainly brings back a few memories, if anyone else has this I'll be up for a fight on live as no one was online playing this morning - quite enjoyed it.

Mortal Kombat : Deception - I mainly wanted this for Live play but again felt it wouldn't be worth 40 just about to try it out and It's had decent enough reviews but at least I've got this and SF to keep me busy until DOA:U next year.

And I also picked up Mario Party 5 for 9.99 which I've also wanted for ages, anyone else grabbed any bargains? I think the sales have been pretty decent this time round, usually they have been pretty dire as far as games go!

"Where was GR2 only 18? I've seen it at 25 and I thought that was good."

Well worth it!

Yeah I got one the other day when buying a new PS2 memory card and GTA: SA for my little bro, should come in handy.

I have been playing SF and MK a lot and I'm still getting my ass owned online, seems I'll have to learn everyones combo's..MK is very fast paced and its pretty overwhelming when you first play it online, I think I prefer SF though, a true classic. I haven't been feeling too well so I'll be giving these a proper go tomorrow and friday.

Driv3r is best experienced outside of the Undercover mode.

Driving games, take a ride, directing replays - all far more enjoyable than the erratic main game.

Game are properly wierd, last week my brother picked up a copy of PsiOps for 19.99, when they had had a copy of the same game for 39.99 right next to it..

20 seems fair for Burnout..

I picked up Morrowind and all of its expansion packs for 15, which I thought was a pretty nice price.
