I mentioned my mate ran The Arcade Vaults in Cardiff, where you can turn up and play on old (and new) consoles and ting. Doccy G and I went, it was pretty cool and turns out we suck at games.

Anyway, they're doing a videogames quiz on Friday. Turn up (virtually, obv) and shizz.

I was working at Game when Perfect Dark came out. One of our customers had bought it from another shop in the morning, decided he didn't like it and traded it in at our store around lunch time.

He only lost about £30 on the whole deal.
