    Uncharted for £25:

    (www.gameplay.com)
    £32.99 - £5 discount (using code dt7aquwhf) = £27.99
    then you can get quidco (www.quidco.com), which gives you 11% cashback which means the game comes to £24.91

    Naturally you can use this on other games I'm assuming, which means Oblivion GOTY on PS3 is DEAD cheap.

    I must get around to finishing this. I don't think I've made any progress since July. It all got rather samey and I just needed a break.

    Hope I can remember how the whole thing WORKS

    :D good luck! I fancied seeing the end sequence again, so I loaded up the bit before the final fight.. I had to watch 10(!) minutes of FMV before I could even START. I just turned it off :D

    Can't you just watch it on youtube? :D

    I can't even remember what I was supposed to be doing. I'd got to a town by the sea and had to head back through the woods. Or something.

    Did you finish everything? I'm going to give most of the hunts and espers a go, but will be giving the hunt club or whatever it's a called a HUGE berth. Talk about TEDIOUS :|

    I had it in my head I was going to do the hunt club and the hitman thing a go, but like you say, TE-DI-OUS. I remember trying to find the Ring Wyrm (!) and having to run between two screens 10 million times for the right weather conditions :)

    Just go to game.co.uk, spend £30 or more and enter the code Quidco for £3 off.

    Not much but every little helps!

    ps. you don't need to be a user of quidco for this to work!

    expires: 26/04/2008

    go via Quidco for an additional 11% off

    oh apparently my comment about it being free to play was just hear'say (pictured), Lee thinks it's still chargeable, though you get the first month free.

    but still, a month free. And as I said to Lee, the game itself is less than the cost of a SANDWICH

    I'll admit that FFXI is for EXTERNAL USE ONLY, DO NOT INGEST

    You could probably eat the manual though, it contains essential inks vital to a healthy immune system.

    I would even be tempted if it was 99p a month or something. But a fiver+ a month to play a game i'm not even sure I like yet is a BIT much.
