WHYYYYYYY! WHY DOES THIS SORT OF STUFF ALWAYS HAPPEN.

A prime example of Gaming Sods Law at the moment.

1) There's been a games drought for ages
2) I've had loads of spare time

But this week / next week
3) Lots of games are being released (including 2 I've preordered and forgot about)
4) I'm going on holiday for a week, without any of my gaming gear.

/falls to knees in pouring rain

NOOOO!

I'm willing to help you out there. Just send me the games and you can go on holiday for as long as you like.

Allow me to break it down for you in two easy steps:

1) There's been a games drought for ages

It's been Summer.

But this week / next week
3) Lots of games are being released (including 2 I've preordered and forgot about)

It's no longer Summer.

hth ;)

Nope, it's probably true. Having worked in retail before, I know that stores like to get as much money out of Christmas as possible, so they start ridiculously early. Bit pathetic, imo.

Fuck a duck...I thought you were kidding but the missus just confirmed it too.

So - anyone want a Wii yet or should I wait till late Nov to see if they start going for batshit-insane prices again.

You have more than 15 people who you buy presents for? I buy presents for six people, and I find that enough of a bind. You don't buy presents for friends or anything weird do you?
