Just got a booster box of Guardians Rising and a playmat for £93. hoping for some solid pulls tbh but I'll settle for a Metagross and a Lele.

the singles I want are always out of stock (I did check beforehand) and I've always wanted to do a box tbh, this was going to happen either way

to be fair now I did not know cardmarket was a thing

but yeah, I meant on the 5/6 singles stores I buy from in the UK. I've got 3 metagrosses off them already but they're quite intermittent

also there's a lot of good cards in guardians rising anyway so there's a very solid chance this box will break even in value from trades etc

I did mention cardmarket a while back, it's mainly good for cards that are on the fringe of the meta or really cheap foreign versions of good things. Though I'm yet to actually order from there yet. Also, be warned, I had two Guardians Rising boxes, one of which I won, and pulled 0 Leles, but I did get a Secret Rare DCE which can be exchanged for basically decks.

tbh I kind of forgot about it if so... lots going on lately. But yeah I'll keep an eye on it next time. :)

And yeah I'm not expecting to get the Lele (in particular) from this exercise, its more that I just wanted to get a bunch of packs and by the time you're at Elite Trainer Box / etc levels of cost you might as well just go all in. Six shots at a GX plus a bunch of potential for valuable rares (particularly Garb) and useful trainers (field blower, choice band) along with some of the other stuff which will be really useful to trade at the League next time I can go to that.

I prefer to buy singles, just I saw the box and I like Tsareena as a Pokemon even though the card is crap. And shiny things.

It was in GAME, I was there preordering video games and broke the guy working there by asking for a PS Vita game.

Agreed, though sadly, the prospect of trading in some of my old games there is likely to be the only way for me to get my hands on F1 2017. :(

singles are eton mess and boring.

I bought 2x Booster Boxes of Kemono Friends Weiss Schwarz from Chimera for £130.

byeah I like being able to make changes to my deck because surprise surprise decks aren't rigid and change based on meta, personal preference etc etc, so having plenty of spares is always nice.

also get them sick pulls it's more fun that just buying singles similar to how people go to a casino you don't go with the intention of winning you go because it's fun.

£29.99

It was from Game and that's why its £5 more than anywhere else, the young lady that served me was very polite but knew nothing about games, I asked for the new uncharted and she asked me which console I wanted it for, they had around 50 display only cases on a promotion stand at the front of the shop and yet they did not have any sealed copies she had to find the case on the shelves in the shop and then the disc in a drawer at the back, why do they open all there games? Then they put one of there own seals on it, it makes you feel like its not a new game

I want to get the old uncharted games (I have only played 4 and the psvita one) is there any difference from buying 1-3 on separate discs compared to the Nathan Drake collection?

Collection you get all 3, each separate disc you only get the game you buy is the only difference. Get Uncharted 2 if you're gonna get any of them, by far the best of the original 3.

All that's missing from the Nathan Drake Collection are the multiplayer modes for 2 and 3 (both of which were greatly underappreciated back in the day) although I'd still point any newcomer toward the collection.

The biggest differences are the boosts in visual fidelity which go beyond your typical remaster and photo mode implementation across all three games.
