Amazon are cheaper, not better..... It's amazing how many people see cheapness as the pinnacle of customer service. A good indie games store is a thing of beauty, ive visited loads in my time and miss them all hugely, indies are the places you find the rare stuff/retro stuff and unique toys and accessories.

Amazone is just like every other high street retailer..... But cheaper..... Except for the Blaze hand-held master systems and megadrive retro consoles, they are cool.

no, getting into your car and driving to a town that does have indie stores is far, far better, not only because all the way here you have the anticipation of what you might find but on the way home you are safe in the knowledge that what you bought is exactly what you wanted in the condition you were prepared to accept and better still you can use them as soon as you get home without worrying if a postal gorilla will crush it or someone will simply steal it.



on topic, why give a kids game away with an ultra violent shooter? isnt that like giving free hardcore porn with every postman pat toy?

Wrong way round. The top trumps pack is the free gift not the borderlands 2 game.
Bureaucrat Conrad, you are technically correct -- the best kind of correct.

What's wrong with using Amazon? Been using them for years and their customer service is 2nd to none.
