I signed up for the Goozex service about a month ago. If you are unfamilar with the website, it's basically the greater alternative to trade-in prices. It's a community based website where you trade games to other users and in exchange for the game you get points. Depending on how much points you get per game (or you can build up your points) you can buy games.
It's a pretty good service, I traded in 3 Nintendo DS games and got a little under 1000 points. With those points I then went on to buy Fallout 3 (PC) and Skate 2 (360). That's a damn good trade if you ask me. Over the past few weeks I traded 2 old Xbox360 games, with no interest in any games out I kept the points. But without thinking, I had left a game in my wanted list...
It arrived yesterday. So for the past 2 days I've been playing Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I've surprisingly had a blast with the game. But I cannot for the life of me recommend it as a purchase. Although, I'd highly recommend it as a rental to any fans out there. You won't enjoy it if you're not a fan, but for us tight knit fans it's a real blast. For the whole 5 hours it lasted, yeah, that included all the achievements.
I think i'll put it back up for trade as it's still going for the same price as I purchased it for. So basically i've been playing that for free all weekend. Not bad.
I also started Fallout 3 last weekend. I decided to get it for PC as they were apparently the game quality and I needed a excuse to play more Games for Windows games. I like the service overall, I like being able to use my gamercard to chat to friends on the 360 while i'm busy playing my own games on the PC. They need to expand this service, as it has a aweful lot of potential. As for the game itself, it's damn good. The beginning segments were one of the better starts to a game i've seen in a long time. I've never played a Fallout game before, but this one has me submerged in the world and enjoying it a lot. It's a ton of fun to play and explore, the game really lives up to the claims. It's all about the decisions to make.
I'm not very far into the game at the moment, so advise and helpful tips would be greatly appriciated.
