Did you grab it at the store, or did you order it just now?
I was looking at the PS3 one at the store the other day, and something on the cover gave me the impression it was just a box with a voucher inside. Said something about it being a download. Can't remember the exact wording.

This is a disc release that will come out November 12. 20$ You can preorder at Gamestop


dont ever advise someone to pre-order anything through them ever again ryudo.. you of all people should know better... im ashamed!

Speaking of Digital games I bought Mutant Mudds on sale on Eshop. Tough as nails but fun as hell.

Oh and OL I'm playing Serious Sam HD..a FPS OMG :P

AG I rarely buy from them and it's only online. I still never go in a GS store as that was my real beef

It was a fun game on Wii, and it's even better on the Vita. I was just going to boot it up just to see how it played, and ended up not moving for the next three hours lol It looks so good on the OLED

^ Try Dragon's Crown next. It's no doubt the best game they ever made. Fucking amazing.

I got it already. Picked it up on PS3 the day it released. Awesome game, very poor execution. It definitely loses points for having to play solo for an hour and a half or so just to be able to get to the point where you unlock online coop. It wouldn't be so bad but you have to do that with EVERY single class you want to play as. Super annoying. Especially for those who bought it specifically to play online. And then once you do, no voice chat? Its 2013. Its by far their worst game if you ask me. They REALLY dropped the ball on what could have been the best coop game in over a decade. Sorry for the rant lol as I'm sure those topics have already been discussed here before.

Not bashing them, as I love their style and vision but those were some very poor design choices. Odin Sphere is definitely my favorite release from them.

Really looking forward to playing this, but I want to finish GTAV first. Either way, I really like what I've seen of it so far, so hopefully it turns out well. Cool intro (I've only played a few minutes, just to try it out) and I absolutely love the design work.

The worst I heard about it was that it was linear. Heard a lot of bitching over that.
But there were a couple of places I trust (level-headed youtube channels mostly) where it came highly recommended. So y'know, one of those cases where it's "fuck the gaming press, I'll decide for myself."

ten dollars at the swap meet. Haven't actually checked if it works though. Came with everything put the power cord, which isn't a problem to me since I've got every kind imaginable coming out of everywhere.

I'm not saying the game play isn't any good, its a very fun game to play, and I'm glad I bought it. But it was marketed as a coop game and it missed the mark on a few things that everyone expected to be there. You can't start a new game right away with your friends. And then once you "unlock" coop, which is full on retard to begin with, there is zero voice chat. What good is a coop game if you can't talk with your friends while you play? Honestly, when you and your friends played Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Battletoads or Turtles in Time did you sit quietly next to each other? You have to judge a game by all aspects, not just the solo portion. If it had no online mode at all, and was couch coop only, I would say it was in my top three. Know what I mean?

Nice one with System Shock. I still remember the first time I played it. How are you enjoying it so far? I've been meaning to pick up the steam version, my old disc copy has some issues with windows 7 sometimes.
