Yes, yes, YES!

One of my dreams has come true! For the past six months I have been hunting for a way to buy the first two Gabriel Knight games. Since I don't have a credit card, eBay is out of my league. I was starting to lose hope and then...

I found a Finnish person who was willing to sell his copy of Gabriel Knight Mysteries! We agreed about the price yesterday, and now I can say that the first two games of my favourite game trilogy shall be MINE!

The fun will cost me 45 euros unless he is unable to find the soundtrack that should be included with the package. In that case the price will be 35 euros. I'm such a lucky girl.

I met him in an online store where people sell old junk. I don't usually go there, but that day I felt like I should and then I saw his offer.

Lucky you, I'm still bargaining on different stores to see if they have any good (old, adventure) games.
A bit expensive, though.

True, but what wouldn't one do to get their hands on excellent games? I'll be eating porridge until Christmas.

*snaps fingers* Hey, I've heard about that game somewhere. You must tell us whether it's good or not once you get it.

Apparently it is good, and I believe it is, as I like good games about the future. It was released a few days ago in Europe.
