I recently discovered the joys of E-bay after finally setting up a Paypal account, I did this as I wished to get a Super NES and NES. This I have now done.
I love E-bay. Sure my first purchase - A Super NES was a tad expensive. It cost me £36 (excluding P and P) for a Super NES, 2 offical controllers, Super Mario World, Super Mario All-Stars, Zoop, and Fifa (which I swapped with a friend for Batman Returns).
My 2nd purchase was great though. For £34 (again excluding P and P) I got a NES. The NES came with a Zapper gun, 2 controllers, a Joystick plus these games:
Double Dragon 2
Super Mario Brothers
Super Mario Brothers 3
Snake Rattle N Roll
Low G Man
The Goonies 2
Damn good bargain!
Trying my luck again I put in a bid for 12 Megadrive games. Out of the 12 there was only 3 I didn't have (Lemmings, Superman, and California Games). I won the bidding, so got 12 games for the sum of £2.20!
I'm sorry, I probably shouldn't get so excited, but I'm a E-bay virgin, so there you go!
On a different note, I remembered with half pride and half sadness today that I once turned down a one night stand with a moderatly attractive girl as 'Dead Rising' was coming out the next day and I wanted to be home for when the postman called. Such a geek.
