Kirby Start Allies - Switch - £34.99 pre-order - In store @ Smyths

Just a heads' up for anyone looking to pre-order Kirby on the Switch. Smyths have an offer on where you get £5 off when you order in store. Brings it down to £35 which isn't a bad price.

Fire Emblem Warriors - 3DS - £14.99 - @ Amazon.co.uk

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fire-Emblem-Warriors...

Good price. I thought I did well on this one when I paid £20. Much like it's switch counterpart the price has fallen steadily.
Don't let the price drop mislead you though, these are good games, they just didn't catch the market and as such aren't holding their price like similar titles.

NOTE: This one is a black box *NEW* 3DS only.

2DS XL consoles - Pikachu edition and Pokeball edition - £98.99 - @ Grainger games

Pikachu edition:

Pokeball edition:
https://www.graingergames.co.uk/product/G57714-nintendo-2ds-xl-console-pokeball-edition

Great price for access to the library if you're not interested in the 3D effect. The 2DS XL is on par with the New 3DS XL and I have the pokeball edition myself. The 3DS also has a massive library of very good games which is often overlooked, but the sheer amount of quality games on the system is impressive.
 
Be warned "New" from Grainger games is usually not shrinkwrapped. I've yet to recieve one that didn't have everything a new copy should (including codes) but it's worth highlighting for those buying as a gift or wanting a sealed game.
Is there actually an explanation for this? Why would a retailer be selling games new but not wrapped? I'm pretty sure they're delivered to the retailers wrapped so how are they ending up open?

Same way Game and Smyths do it - they put the discs in a drawer and put the cases out on display. Liklihood is these are copies gone back to the main branch/depot as they've not shifted in store.

In their stores they store the games and any manuals/leaflets etc in drawers behind the counter so that they can put the cases out front thereby saving on display cases. Thus if you buy a new game they have to re-assemble the package by putting the stuff from the drawer into the case. GAME sometimes do the same thing in store where new games are split out and then re-assembled upon purchase (and they put those bloody annoying sticker seals on them).

There is also the claim that they may be taking good condition complete second hand games and re-selling them as new. I've not yet had a game where I'd say this is obviously the case but other people have said they were very suspicoous that a game they purchased was actually used.

From personal experience I've not had a problem with the condition of a *new* game purchased from them. They have a lot of good deals though (particularily at the moment) so I don't avoid them and don't want to exclude posting said deals as others may benefit from them. I am however aware that it is an issue so try to put a warning on so people are aware.

Virtue's Last Reward

Vita - £12.99 - @ ebay (funBoxMedia)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323092621493?clk_rvr_id=1465586975030&rmvSB=true

There's only 8 left but it's a very good game. I think there's a slo a collection on Vita which contains this and the first game in the series (999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors) but it's you're just looking for this one I don't think this is a bad price.

3DS - £11.50 - @ CEX

https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail/?id=5060102953418

Cheaper in store if you can find it (£10) but a decent price if you want it for the 3DS.

Actually, if you have a CEX nearby they're got some good deals on 3DS and Wii U games at the moment. They seem to be selling off their Wii U stock so usually expensive games like Mario Kart, New Super Mario Bros. U etc. can be had for around a tenner. Noticed the reductions when I was in earlier today and see that some are online.

Xenoblade Chronicles X - Wii U - £13.50 - @ CEX

https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail/?id=5050013381684

Buy it people. If you have a Wii U and don't have this then you need to get it. Awesome game

with a... questionable of a naff ending

But don't let that put you off. The world and setting are great and the overworld is IMHO the best in the series. I put a couple of hundred hours into this one and at this price it's a bargain.

10% off games and accessories @ 365Games

Use code: GAMING10

I think this is what crashed their site last night. Seems to work on a bunch of stuff. Worth a punt if you're looking for something they have.

Sunset Overdrive - Xbox One - £4.99 - @ grainerGames

Pretty well regarded by some. Got to be worth a punt at a fiver if you're looking for a cheap fix.
