Wow football country likes football game in shock :D

Personally I don't like football but i'm in a minority in this country hehe.

I'll stick to Borderlands and Pandaria (although early indications are I won't be renewing my sub - this is such a blatant expo aimed at China it's not even funny.

Personally I don't think even Resi 6 will knock fifa 13 of next weeks charts.

It bloody well better not. I can't wait to see the reviews for it this week, lets see who has the integrity to bash it and mark it down for the turd of a game its gonna be and lets see who sold their souls for the promise of monetary gain.

Yeah FIFA can go suck its own arse and world of warcraft isnt even a game.

Resident evil 6 is going to get a few good scores based on articles i have seen on IGN, XBOX official and here, all the nicely bought reviewers are getting ready to hand out high 7's and above methinks when in reality this game (based on the demo) should get around 3 and a right good pummelling.

I bought Borderlands 2, wish to god i hadn't, its so boring and geared up for online play for any sort of fun. This year has been a wash-out for me, 2012 has been a real low point in videogames and with Nintendo making the Wii U so un-desirable at the price point with the launch line-up im doing what i dont normally do in wanting 2013 to get here as quick as it can.

I concur, i usually only play sport games multiplayer but i put a fair bit of time into this over the weekend against the cpu. Gotta love those skill games though.

This is the first year I haven't got any of the footy games at launch. Not because I don't like them, I thought both demos played a good game, but because all my gaming time in the last 9 days have gone into Borderlands 2. I finished my solo play of that last night though, so it's just helping out on the co-op until Dishonoured is out.

I might treat myself to a Choc Dip to help pass the time.

Take that as a euphemism if you want.

You must live in a magical part of Scotland, all I've ever seen down here are the normal ones!

Bastard Home Bargains. I always knew they hid the good stuff for themselves.

I didn't go for the Choc Dip, just couldn't do it after the depressing realisation that I can't have a choice hit me.

So I got these instead.

Minted!! Oh wait they're orange.

Do you remember Biarritz bars, they were the same as matchmakers but in bar form?

Angry birds trilogy at 16 makes me physical ill, it's the biggest rip off in years. £30 for under £3 worth of content on IOS!
