Some really overly aggressive Europeans in this thread. I don't even care about the availability thing, since I own the PSOne games I want on their original disks already, but can't say I've ever cheered at another country not getting access to a game.

Some european users with a sense of humour you mean. This is a little taste of what it feels like to be in the EU market a lot of the time. Take it with good grace, you still get a much better deal over all.

No, I'm pretty sure I meant what I said. Like I said, I don't really have a stake in Sony's incompetence to serve both markets as I bought those games a long time ago. Some of those comments may be written as jokes (and if so whatever), but a lot of them come off as angry. It doesn't make sense to have a go at US consumers, who have no power over the situation, instead of Sony and the publishers.

Great article about one of the most compelling story driven games in recent years. I'm a big fan of The Walking Dead and this series is -by a wide margin - the best use of the comic franchise. Really looking forward to Part 2 of this article and to tomorrow's Episode 3.

Jeff's dismissal of a long game is a bummer. I get it, but that doesn't leave much hope for any other coverage of similar types of games. P4G is kind of a know quantity in terms of a review though. I mean, Jeff and Vinny really like the original and this is just a remake for a portable system, so I'd say we know how they feel.

I also find it sad that people feel guilty for asking the staff about Persona coverage. Again, it is something I understand, but it is a shame nonetheless.

No, it is too expensive. Also, I learned that Square was no longer able to make a decent FF game after playing both FFIV: The After Years and FFXIII. Can't fool me a third time!

44. There's always a lady-smoker and some loud mouth that's ready to shout out his opinion of your clothes whenever you leave a store.

  1. Borderlands 2
  2. Assassin's Creed III
  3. Hitman Absolution
  4. Dishonored
  5. Jet Set Radio
  6. X-COM: Enemy Unknown

These are the ones I'm most excited about, but the gap between Borderlands 2 and the rest is pretty huge. I'm curious about how Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Far Cry 3, and Halo 4 turn out. Halo, unlike the others, is a series I've always tried to get into but never can. The others, I seem to like much more easily.

@daletiel: You may have to choose a profile and assuming you choose the older one with the majority of your saves, somehow get it signed in online. Other than that, you may have to call Microsoft.

If you look on the Xbox Live site there is a page for transferring your licensees to the new console. Right now it sounds like your saves are still registered to the old system's ID. A quick transfer should clear things up. Also, have your serial numbers handy.

People that play Diablo 3 for 30, 40 or 100 hours and then go on the internet complaining about how dull the game is just amaze me. Not saying that's you, but I've seen folks talk about sinking 100 hours into D3 and then shitting all over it.

Why does that surprise you? I don't think you can critique Diablo 3 with any sort of credibility until you at least hit Inferno. At least for me, it is not uncommon to finish a game you are not enjoying to wait and see if there is an upside, especially if you have been anticipating the game for awhile.

I disagree. I didn't need 30-100 hours of chewing on a crap sandwich to know I don't like crap sandwiches. That said, I see no reason to jump on people that invest a 100+ hours and still wish to complain. Some people may be more optimistic about the game's future or may not have anything else to play. Who knows what their motives are, but they are entitled to the opinions either way.
