:P

It's lashing it down with snow here anyway so it's pointless pre-ordering.

I would buy it, but I had a spending spree a few months back and must get through Binary Domain, Vanquish, Gears of War Judgement, Resi 5 (i know, but for 1.99 it was a steal) Warhammer 40K Space Marine and Mercernaries 2

got the lot, excluding GoWJ for 14 quid :)

Phew...

Still waiting for amazon to ship my Limited Edition, sans Songbird statue.

Back on topic, am I the only one who find the marketing budgets to spin completely out of control? People moan about skyrocketting dev costs this gen but I find the fact that marketing is accounting for more than actually creating the game to be absolutely shameful. Do video games really want to take the Hollywood blockbusters route? :roll:

Resi 5 ain't worth much more TBH. Had it for free with PlayStation + and still felt a bit robbed :wink:

Have fun with Binary Domain, though! I for one found it much more enjoyable than the vastly overrated Vanquish.

9.4 at IGN! Although it seems odd they seem to have an exclusive, and they also gave Halo 4 9.8! Plus it's IGN. I think they gave the PC version 9.7.

I was tempted with reeg's £29.99 and if I had't got Tomb Raider yesterday I probably would've done, but with Lego City and possibly Monster Hunter coming over the next week, enough is enough!

When are the other reviews coming out?

I just pre-ordered Infinite, because I noticed some places (Steam for example) are giving away Xcom for free as a pre-order bonus on the PC :D

That'll learn you both for being yorkish, scottish, welsh, northern irish or devonshireish.

By the by there was an awesome deal someone else spotted on greenman gaming. Was 24 quid with xcom, bioshock 1 and another game from darkness 2, spec ops or civ5.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.
