Strange that Ireland isn't on that list, since we'll most certainly be getting the British localisation, anyway.

Was really disappointed when I first started it up and it wasn't the XMB. Makes sense because of the touchscreen though.

After a while with it, I actually really like it. You're able to customise the backgrounds and organise the icons however you want, so you can make it look pretty sweet if you put some time into it. Square tiles are about the only thing I wish it had.

A weird curiosity - Have localization teams ever forgotten to add the U's to your games? Or messed up other things that differentiate my side of the pond from yours? Just a weird question that came to mind while reading this.

All the fucking time. Even British developers tend towards American localisation, because it's a bigger market for them.

On-topic: Haha, fuck my fellow Europeans. I'm in Canada right now and I've already gotten half a day out of it. Would kill for some proper fucking tea though, so you've got that on me. :(

I don't have nightmares, but I get sleep paralysis. Strangely enough, it only ever happens when there are other people in the room, and I always see odd things happening to them.

Depends on the environment. If we have a few PCs hooked up in the same room and I'm playing with people I know, then it's great.

I dislike online though. It's too impersonal and lately it's been invading my single player games.

Not unless it's militant.

It really depends on what you mean by "fanboy" though. If a company consistently impresses me with their output, I will give them some blind trust when their latest release seems somewhat 'meh'.

Was going to do it for the hell of it and because I've never done it before, but it turns out I'll be in the wrong country. :(

How is this an issue now? There have been female avatars in shooters before and nobody seemed to have a problem...

Metal Gear Solid 2 came damn fucking close. It's almost worse than Dragon Age II.
