    Picked up Metroid: Other M for ~ $25
    http://www.zavvi.com/games/platforms/nintendo-wii/metroid-other-m/10051268.html

    ... and de Blob 2 (PS3/XBOX) for ~ $16
    http://www.zavvi.com/games/platforms/ps3/de-blob-2/10208078.html

    free shipping, but our banks take their cut on the transaction!

      Epic finds!

      I'll add this "Zavvi" to my list of sources.

        Hey! We told you about Zavvi back when you started but I think you didn't want to use it because it's in Pounds. If only we'd known we had to be called Craig for you to listen we could have had you slaving away finding us awesome Zavvi deals sooner. :P

        Oh, and the guy on the right in the comic reminds me of you. He has kind of a sneaky cheeky grin happening.

    Don't forget about the Humblebundle, you can pay as much as you want for some games: http://www.humblebundle.com/
    I'd have to say that Trine is a pretty good game

    Play-Asia all the way baby. New Vegas for under $20, sold.

      Just be wary it's the Asian version, so getting any DLC for it will require some effort.

    Thanks Craig. I went to have a look at Metroid: Other M then decided against it but saw House of the Dead: Overkill which I had been toying with getting.

    Also checked it at ozgameshop and under $20 sealed the deal for me. :)

      Overkill is great, goregasms and cussing all over the place!

    No PC retail this week? Bummer.

    I have never used play-asia before. ANyone care to rate it? (delivery time, customer service, etc..)

      It's been a while since I used them because I've been using the sites with free shipping (like zavvi, ozgameshop and cdwow) but even their cheapest shipping rate got here within a week everytime I used to buy from them.

      Delivery times: Regular mail they quote about 7-10 days (they ship from HK), and that seems about right, though the fastest I've ever got a thing was within 5 days (shipped Thursday, came on Tuesday). Never had a lost parcel or anything of the sort. Courier services claim they can get it to you within 3 days, IIRC.

      Customer Service is ace. All web-based, so expect a few hours for someone to get around to your question, but the people on support are always helpful. I've changed a pre-order after I paid for everything a few days before release and they refunded me the difference via coupons. I've had trouble with entering coupons in the checkout and support mailed back saying they applied it for me, no fuss.

      What else, what else...
      Variety of shipping options, from regular post (padded bags, cardboard boxes) to couriers like Fedex (although that's pretty expensive, but totally worth it if you order a massive haul). Games come shrink wrapped, and I've never received a damaged case or anything of the sort.
      Great range, though sometimes stock for some niche games can be a problem (I pretty much get all my ATLUS games from them, but they can sell out and not restock for quite a while).

      Yeah. I've pretty much got nothing but glowing praise for them.

    GAME has some sort of promotion ATM where you trade in 2 old games and get a new game for $1, the exclusion list is pretty minimal, I offloaded a few games the other day (Gears of War, Perfect Dark Zero) that wouldn't fetch $5 on a normal trade for a new copy of Splinter Cell Conviction!
