What is your go-to Star Wars game? by westonp


I got off work and then this happened:

There was a bundle that was the MK8 bundle + Just Dance 2014 + Wiimote for 420 AUD (this is either around or cheaper than the normal price of the MK8 bundle, depending on where you go). They also had ZombiU (new) for 10 AUD.

Sorry, no passenger seat. I told you, I don’t drive to\from the city!
