This sucks for the people who rely on their jobs but as a company they totally had it coming. Constant staff harrasment and upselling, overpricing on pre-owned and classic titles and terrible selection in pretty much every branch I've ever been in. Staff knowledge was very sporadic too. For every guy who had a legitimate interest and knowledge of video games, there are usually a couple of retail bots who don'tknow what to say if you asked him about something other than CoD, FIFA or strategy guides.

'Skate or Die' on the NES. I bought it from a car boot sale when I was about 6 or so, played it once and then swapped it with a friend for Ninja Gaiden, which looking back on it all is a very one sided trade.

I'm over 30 hours in and my save files are bordering 8mbs. I haven't had any issues other than slight frame rate dips when entering an area with lots of NPCs, which last for just a couple of seconds. I also get an odd glitch specifically with dragons where, if I die and then reload the fight, the textures for the dragon sometimes don't load in at all.

It should also be noted that Eurogamers 1-10 scale is actually realistically based. This means that 5 is average. An 8 out of 10 from Eurogamer is a much bigger commendation to me than a 9 or a 10 from sites and magazines that inflate their scores due to the modern gamer expecting anything under a 7 to be excruciatingly bad.

I really liked the trailer. The 'They Live' style wall messages allude to what could be a very interesting plot. The grubby design really suits the new approach too. Combat looks very similar to the old style, but I don't think we saw enough to make an actual opinion on that yet, I think those saying otherwise are jumping to conclusions or hating because its not the game that  they wanted. Regardless, I look forward to hearing more in the coming months.

If the UK gets a fair price conversion instead of getting the dollar-for-pound shafting we normally get, then this is an amazing price.

I believe in Harvey Dent.

I enjoyed L.A. Noire but not enough to buy the DLC. I'm not fond of having to pay for this pass either. I assumed that it would come with new copies of the game as an incentive to not buy pre-owned. I'm not saying that it isn't a fair pricetag for the content, but I feel like at least some of it should have been offered free to the people who bought this game on day one.

I'm a bitter misanthropic dick and even I loved that game.

If you are weary of import charges then use this site, they import it into the UK before they even ship to you so there are no extra costs.

The pre-order goodies are also included.
Thanks for the link. I will most definitely be getting this from that site. Looking forward to this game so much!
