Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I'd wager most of these weren't moved.

    That was more the excuse for the games in January and February.

    I've mentioned it a couple of other places but I figure I should do it again. The PS3 version's the only one with the DLC actually included on the disc, whereas the 360 version is just packaged with a couple of DLC codes. So 360 owners may be better off just finding a cheap copy of the original RE5 release and buying the DLC seperately.

    At least this seems a reasonable way of getting around the necessity of making the DLC available on PSN. And maybe it couldn't fit on a single disc and it wasn't worth the effort of printing a second one.

    Still, it's always better to do the math to see with version is the most efficient.

    I'm guessing they probably had to manage the resources for the original release anyway, so splitting the game afterwards or squeezing the game down even more probably weren't considered serious options.

    There were a couple that were assumed they'd come out in 2009 (like GoW3), probably because some people had confused their publishers fiscal years.

    Sega on Yakuza 3: "Despite taking an entire year to localise our game, we're so pressed for time that we have to cut out all the Shogi, Mahjong, Quiz Game and Hostess content to make the crucial window that contains 2 other massively high-profile PS3 games!" Combined with the utter lack of publicity, I'm half-wondering if they're trying to sabotage their chances of selling any copies - somehow both pissing off the fanbase and passing under the radar of new customers.

    Sam & Max Season 2 for Wii... been waiting for that FOREVER.

    And it looks like I'll have to wait another day or two. Stupid non-Tuesday ship dates...
