  1. Gamestop have just taken money for this, £34.47 in the end! Pretty sure that's a bargain in this age of controllers with £60 RRPs.
  2. Can't say it'll be missed, I guess. Three or four years ago I'd have been destroyed at this news but now I'm not sure the world is going to miss much.
  3. Sounds like Metro is probably not for me then
  4. Do either of the Metro games do anything particularly interesting to warrant a purchase from someone who doesn't like the average FPS? They're about a fiver each on US PSN at the moment so wondered if either of them was worth checking out.
  5. Easy enough to grab it from the US store if you want it, though.
  6. This list took nearly five minutes to scroll to the bottom thanks to thousands of XBLIG demoes! TEAM GEOMETRY WARS. Downloaded it a couple of days after launch, I knew where it was at. That games nearly ten years old now and I'm still shit at it
  7. Now that we're going round and round in circles I'm pretty sure it's best we stop. I'll leave the posts there that are there so everyone can see what a despicable cunt I am for not buying games when I had no money, but anything after this will be removed. If you want to continue the discussion (why?) then PM me and I'll gladly respond as best I can to whatever you have to say without spoiling the launch of a new Mario game. Just want to keep this on topic now. Super Mario Maker is almost out. People will be making Mario games tomorrow. Let's talk about that.
  8. I've been unemployed, £1800 into a £2000 overdraft, avoiding repeated calls daily from my credit card company because I haven't paid off any of my maxed-out card in the last six months, throwing the resulting debt collection letters in the bin because it was easier than opening them. At this point I wasn't thinking about buying video games. I appreciate that not everyone will ever find themselves in that situation and with a job it's pretty easy to buy stuff because you know you've got more money coming next month even if you go over this month a bit. It's not about being charged seven times for a game, it's about being charged one time. If you or anyone else can genuinely tell me that if you were in the situation I was in above, that you'd spend £40 on a video game, I would be really surprised, but obviously that's your choice and fuck all to do with me. I did what I did, you'd do what you'd do. But yeah, there's no need to answer that, let's leave it. The box-arts are way prettier than this conversation is!
  9. If you don't get these charges back, I would be amazed. In the nicest possible way, fuck off. If you want to call me a cunt I really don't care but don't put words in my mouth and then call me a cunt based on shit I didn't even say. If people are poor but they budget to afford that stuff then why wouldn't that be cool? That's not the person I'm talking about in the very specific example to which I referred, though.
  10. Adoring the chance to defend myself again, everyone has their own slightly different take on what I said in order to take maximum outrage from it In no way am I trying to say that people should only buy things if they have 10x the money in their account just in case the vendor fucks it up. That would be mental. I was referring to that one specific situation outlined by John above in which someone has been charged £300 so they lose their house and starve to death. Completely irrespective of GAME, now, I said that if I had £300 in my account and literally no money coming from anywhere else, I'd spend that money on food and rent before I spend it on videogames. That's not a £300 "buffer," that's literally £300. If you'd spend it on videogames, that's cool, but I wouldn't. It's not about whether you're accidentally going to be overcharged, it's about what you're going to do with the last £300 you have in the whole world. Even assuming I would only be charged once, I still wouldn't be spending £40 of my last £300 on a game. That's a pretty significant sum when all you've got is £300. But then to go back to John's point: Not only is it not about a "buffer," but you just deleted my second point so that you could be angry at my first. People will be able to afford their mortgage, food, etc, because GAME are not keeping this money. They will get it back. People will be inconvenienced and that's really annoying but no one will be out of pocket. Anyway, people can buy what they like with their money and I was wrong to say people shouldn't buy videogames if all they had in their bank account was £300, but I'm not going to say I was wrong to do what I did when I was in that situation, which was to spend money on the stuff that kept me alive first. I'm sorry if I offended anyone but yeah, I wouldn't do anything differently if I had to go back and live like that again.
  11. Yeah I've already had this discussion, John.
  12. "To apologise for this we have credited 100 reward points to your account."
  13. I've really only made two statements in that thread: - People who can't afford to buy videogames shouldn't buy videogames. - People who are affected by GAME's system error will be refunded and no one will be out of pocket. I'm honestly not sure why either is so controversial but GAF is GAF.
  14. Delph injured after 30 seconds! Man City fans looking on will be concerned to see if he's okay.
