Treasure Hunt

This week's treasure hunting wasn't particularly successful. I did the rounds of all the usual shops, but I only managed to pick up a couple of PS1 games.

Trash It
Resident Evil

I only paid £1 for each of them, so that was good.

Spurred on by the lack of success I had a look through the cheap end of the games that CeX had in stock, and I picked up this lot for £15

Unreal II: The Awakening
Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon
Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy

I already had a copy of Broken Sword, but sans manual, so this was a good opportunity to replace it. I'm making good progress on the incompletes, 56 remaining out of a total of 969 games.

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The Getaway
Red Faction II
007 Nightfire

There's nothing especially amazing amongst the PS2 stuff, but it was time just to pick up some of the cheap stuff while it's still easily available. On another note I did fantastically well with records, but that's not the point of this post.

Spend for the week: £17.00
Month: £17.00
Year: £295.36

The mind, it boggles

The Escapist : News : A Better Shave For Gamers

The Escapist reports on a new razor for 'Gamers' I mean Christ Almighty why, just why? Words totally fail me. What is it about gamers' faces that's so different from the rest of mankind?

What's wrong with a safety razor anyway? I use a Parker 90R - with a shaving brush and some decent soap it gives me the best shave I've ever had.
