Things got a little out of hand for me tonight. My eBay habit strikes again. I was originally trying to get my hands on a SNES with 15 games but instead I stumbled upon copies of Tales of Symphonia and Skies of Acradia: Legends on GameCube that had just been listed. They were buy it now and each was about Â£10 less than the typical auction ending price so I snatched those up right away. Unfortunately for me, they are fairly expensive RPGs compared to the games I usually buy. Still, they've been at the top of my wish list ever since a got the GameCube so it's nice to finally have them, assuming they arrive.
I also managed to get a Gameboy player for my GameCube which is cool because now I can play my old Gameboy games on the TV screen which will make the far more appealing.
That SNES and 15 games I mentioned earlier just sold for Â£113. If those copies of Skies of Arcadia and Tales of Symphonia didn't appear at take my money, I'd have won that SNES. Ah well, I'll get a SNES one day!
Also, the postman is going to hate me. He has like 8 parcels to bring me now.

That sounds pretty cool actually. Do they stock any retro stuff, more specifically 16-bit era stuff? Working in a game shop would be pretty interesting I reckon. It'd be the sort of place where you could try and convince customers to by things that you actually give a shit about.
