When we saw the marked-down Gundam Cross Drive DS Lite yesterday -- which, by the way, we hope you did, or the picture above won't even come close to making sense -- we briefly considered dropping the $160 for it. But in the end we decided that, even though $160 was cheap for that item, it's still pretty expensive for a thing we didn't need and didn't expect to pay for.

Do you have a ceiling for impulse buys? Does it vary by mood? Or is there a certain amount that you don't mind spending on unplanned game stuff? At what point do you have to start thinking about it?
