  1. I also cannot register my Trauma Center code. Anyone know why this is? I think I've chucked it away now after countless fruitless attempts. Strangely, the code is recognised as a valid product code, it just claims that it's not a product in their system...
  2. Mine would be called British National Mario Party.
  3. Nah, not a student, just frugal/poor. Don't have a problem with the standalone game price, I just personally won't buy it at full price (as I don't most games). The fact that the game ISN'T INCLUDED with the peripherals takes the piss though. And yeah, the main point was: vote with your money. Relying on gullible early-adopters to pay over the odds is nothing new, but it's a cynical, greedy move. Don't fall for it!
  4. I'll pick up the game to play with my Guitar Hero guitar when I can get it for sub-£20. No great loss if that turns out to be "never". Anyone that buys this at full price is part of the problem.
  5. I know someone who is buying it just to play by himself. More disposable income than sense, I reckon. There are probably others in the same boat. I could barely justify buying Guitar Hero, let alone something like Rock Band.
  6. Erm, having spent a bit more time with the demo, I've discovered that it's actually really quite good after all. If it were 400 points I would have it already. 800? Still not sure.
  7. That's be a terribly low score from NGamer, though. I'm always a bit dubious of "exclusive" reviews - I'm sure Bully's a great game though.
  8. It can't be right that both N+ and Rez are selling for the same price. N+ has '400 pointer' written all over it. I still wouldn't buy it for that price.
  9. Both on the web and in store. Picked it up this lunchtime.
  10. What about d) Create a new Live account and opt for the free month's trial? Does that still work? EDIT: that's pretty much the same as b, innit? Sorry.
  11. Is this the episode with a certain big-headed guest star?
  12. £16.49 in Toys R Us. Still had some in Warrington at 6.30pm this evening.
  13. Fair point. Something that's funny without being laddish would do, then.
  14. Slightly off-topic: is there a decent 360 mag, or are they all pap? (For reference I like NGamer best, so something in that vein would be lovely).
  15. Virgin have despatched my copy! Hurrah for Virgin! Boo to Virgin for making me order it twice, after cancelling my first order for no reason whatsoever. Hope it arrives on Friday... Haven't been this excited about videogames since, ooh, December 7th last year.
  16. "IMPORTANT" UPDATE: My Virgin order has moved from the unhelpful "Back Ordered" to the slightly-less-unhelpful "In Progress". More as it happens.
  17. Oh bollocks. I'm sorely tempted to go to Asda at midnight for this (24 hour Asdas do sell games from midnight, don't they?), just in case my copy from Virgin doesn't arrive on Friday. I'm only paying £24.30 for it from Virgin - trade-in at Gamestation will be more than that, won't it? I can usually wait until after launch day for games if it means saving a few quid, but not this one.
  18. Whaa?! Someone in the Bargains thread said that this offer had ended. Is it still on? Will it still be on tomorrow?
  19. I don't buy many games, and I'd already set myself a limit of £20 for new games, with similar conditions on trade-ins etc to the ones you have. I've broken it twice recently: once for Super Paper Mario, once for Super Mario Galaxy, though I've managed to get both for under £25 each. I might raise my limit to £25 too.
  20. Monkey Ball's already been mentioned, but fannying about with switches in Super Monkey Ball 2 was a right pain in the arse, and detracted from the wonderfully simplistic gameplay of the original. Also: Super Monkey Ball on Wii is desperately missing a proper Monkey Baseball mini-game.
  21. On the other hand, would you have played Manhunt 2 to "act out" the violence against those who were tormenting you? I probably would've, in a "virtual Columbine" sort of way. I'm not saying that it would necessarily have been a good idea to do so, but I know that if I'd played such a game as a child that's exactly what I would've done. Having said that, there is no way in the world my parents would've bought me an 18-rated game. It took a lot to persuade my mum to buy Reservoir Dogs for me one Christmas - when I was 17. I agree that games such as Manhunt 2 should not be advertised in kids' mags - remember the RedEye column in Edge about this very subject? Have Gamesmaster covered it at all? They really shouldn't.
  22. I've added everyone on here. Please add me too! Please add me to the first post as well. 060230 357214 (name: Paul Twist) Cheers! PS I am really bad at the game so play me if you want an easy win, not a challenge.
  23. Mine finally arrived on Monday.
  24. Haven't got mine yet. I don't think my copy has ever been late before in the 3+ years I've been subscribing, so it seems that something's gone wrong somewhere. If it's not there tomorrow I'll give them a call.
  25. Other than for sale items, I have no idea why anyone would buy from Game in this day and age. I'm surprised the ten day return scheme lasted as long as it did. If it's as popular as it seems Game must either have a lot of "faulty" software to return or they must re-sell a lot of "used" software as new. Either way, it always seemed like an unworkable scheme to me.
