Yesterdays email previewing todays offers had Driver: San Fran in it, so the chase one must be that!

Mario's full name is Mario Mario, but I think that's a bit too obscure for an Amazon clue.

I decided to leave Driver and instead get some shoes! I think I'm switching gender...

I wonder if the sale at 2:30PM is the PC version as it wasn't available at the 10:30AM sale.

I'm going to guess Dragon Age 2.

I'm holding out for a Wii, they were going for £50 last year.

Need me some Skyward Sword.

Not to plug a shop, but Gamestation are doing pre-owned wii's with Skyward Sword limited box (Has the gold wii remote) for £100. The game itself with the box and stuff is £60 retail, so not a bad deal for those who want to fork out a fortune for Zelda.

Hopefully they'll have a Wii cheap again and I'll be about. Might be tempted to grab one if it's at a decent price.

Almost bought Photoshop Elements 10, but then I bought version 9 in last years sale and hardly used it.

Ah, turns out it was Driver Renegade 3D for 3DS :P

Tin tin or Mario for the so good they named him twice.
Browsing the Amazon discussion group someone claims that "Every choice has a consequence" is quoted on the back of a Fable game? My first instinct was Heavy Rain but I doubt it.

Finally see the deals. Deal stream doesn't show up in Opera :(
Doesn't look anywhere near as good as last year from what I've seen.

So good they named him twice was indeed TinTin for PS3 and Xbox for £10.49

#22 Hobotalk

Yeah I had tintin in my basket and immediately deleted it - Doesn't seem like a great game and I may as well invest that time into Skyrim.
Just one more for today then?

EDIT: thoroughly disappointing finish: £19.57 for Xmen: Destiny on the ps3? no thanks.

Xmen? Seriously? And ONLY on the PS3? Shocking end to a day filled with some very average games at very average prices.

Yeah, that X-men deal was terrible. £20? Was expecting it to be £10 like the others.

Oh, yeah - you're probably right.

Not overly excited by any of the deals today though. (The obvious ones, at least.)
