Tesco were selling Mass Effect 3 for Â£12 so I thought I'd just pick it up. Although this does mean I'm going to have to replay the whole trilogy because I don't have save files from the previous games on this console. Should be fun whenever I get around to it. I loved the first 2 Mass Effect games and since I get into Star Trek, this trilogy appeals even more.
It was kinda weird though because it was a new copy of the game yet it wasn't sealed. Looks like a copy that someone has returned or something because there's a little sticker on the inside of the case with a hand written "67" on it. Discs were in perfect condition and the online code worked, so no harm done I suppose. Was still a little odd.
I think I'm also going to pick up the complete edition of LA Noire. I've already beaten the game in the past but I had a loan of the game from my brother and he has since sold his copy. And I never played any of the DLC so getting the complete edition should be worth it for that alone. Although it's a bit pricier than I thought, costing about Â£17. Still tempted to order it, although that'll be the last game I buy for a while. In the last week or two I've now bought:
Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life (GameCube)
Final Fantasy VIII (PS1)
Mass Effect 3 (Xbox 360)
I keep telling myself that I need to stop buying more games and spend more time playing the massive stack of games I already have, but I just can't help it.

Likewise my PS2 collection is getting there. Nearing the 150 mark (although chances are when I hit it I'll find a few more games I want and it'll start increasing towards 200).
Wasn't your collection originally meant to be 100 games? Looks like you've been bitten by the game collecting bug too!
The last three games I want are a little more expensive than I'm willing to pay for games right now.
I run into this problem a lot, although seeing as I collect for any system I own, some of the games can get quite pricey depending on the system. Luckily for you, now is like the prime time to be collecting for PS2 because a lot of the games are still recent enough that a lot of people just look at them as being old, unwanted games. I wonder how long before PS2 games start to become more desirable. Or if they ever will. I imagine PS2 games were produced in much higher numbers than games from previous generations. I'd say you're better to get the more sought after games sooner rather than later, because as they get older they're most likely going to go up in value.
Although I wish I could hold back on buying games like you seem to be able to do. If there's a game I want to get really badly but has a high selling price, I tend not to wait until I find a bargain. I'll just dive in a buy a copy of it at standard eBay price if I have the money to spare. In the case of some of the more sought after JRPGs I have, I've probably spent a stupid amount.
