    I thought it would be a good idea to post all the quality games that are going cheap in one place.

    If you add one I will update this first post and add them all, then hopefully we can all find the best games at the lowest price :smashin:

    Search Wikipedia for it as well. It's got a pretty comprehensive summary as well as some links at the bottom.

    Anyone here order these and received them yet?

    Just had an email from Tesco:
    "2 x Tetris DS
    Awaiting stock, expected on Monday 15 January 2007

    1 x Trauma Center - Under The Knife
    Awaiting stock, expected on Monday 15 January 2007"

    Message sent 20 past 9 tonight (Monday 15th Jan) - either they get their deliveries very late and they might still come in, or they're having a laugh.

    They are having a giraffe, at your expense.

    Theyve been doing it to me since before christmas, we are not going to receive these games.

    The only option is to sue. Time to get some practice in with Phoenix Wright... which I don't have.

    Still waiting on Mario Luigi and Trauma centre. The emails are practically begging you to cancel the order, its all about cancelling. I would, but knowing that they want me to is keeping me hanging in there :mad:

    Why would you cancel them? They're not harming you leaving the order open, and if Tesco do cancel it because they can't fulfill it, you never know they might give you some vouchers or something for the inconvenience. It's worth a shot anyway :)

    Because the money for them is in limbo at the moment, I cant take it from my account, yet I havent paid for the games. (its shows my availible balance as - the cost of the games)

    Im pretty sure its illegal to take money for items you dont have. In fact I know it is

    If your actual amount hasn't gone down by the value of the games, they haven't taken the money. They "test" that your linked account works and that there's enough money in it, which shows up as a lower available balance.

    It seems strange that yours is still saying the available amount is less the value of the game because unless they dispatch it straight away (dispatch is when they actually take your money), the available amount goes back up to the actual amount after a day or two.

    That's how it's always been for me using my Visa debit card.

    Had my dispatch email for 42 Classic from Tescos - looks like they've honoured something! And for £10 I can't complain!

    That's only 24p per classic! Well, bump it up a bit when you discount a couple of the duffers but still a great price.

    Well I got Tetris through a few weeks ago, if they can't source stock of Trauma Centre then I don't see how they can send it on.
