Can anyone recommend me a decent gun holder for the Wii? I'm looking on amazon and have no idea what I'm actually looking for :lol:
At the moment I'm quite tempted by the official House of the Dead: Overkill gun..

Do they do gun holders? I assumed that all the steering wheels, fishing rods, tennis rackets and other assorted tat just ends up lying around getting stepped on.

Yeah there's loads on amazon (well, maybe 5 or 6), but I don't know which to choose.
I looked at the Zelda one but it was about £20 and bleh.

Any idea where I can find the official gun? I saw one in Game for a tenner, but not sure if I want to pay that much for a bit of plastic that I can probably live without..

Just started on Bioshock 1 again to get the Achievements. One for completing on hard is apparently glitched so you can't reload and have to start again =/.

Also playing Borderlands at the minute too.

about £10 is the average for a house of the dead one after a quick look this is the cheapest one (i didnt check ebay)

Didn't have that many 20ps. There's never enough 20ps.
I'll be sure to get this new one methinks.

HMV had Blaz Blue set up to play when I was in there the other day, it does look very cool. I dunno if I'll be getting it, since it's still just a fighting game, but it does look interesting.
