So we ventured out to a couple of local towns (no big city for me during the sales) that had some gaming shops and despite only having a quick look around the shops I did manage to find some bargains that just had to be bought.
Dead Space 2 I was pleased with as I did really like the first game. Mirror's Edge was ridiculously cheap and I've heard decent things about it. Goldeneye* includes the golden controller and again I've heard decent things about it. The Skyward Sword guide looks great and is significant in that it's the first guide I've ever bought. Even in the days of pre-internet I never bought a guide but like I say, this looks great and who can turn down a bonus surface world cloth map.
*I cheated a little with this one as it was bought from the luxury of my sofa.
