Yo' damn right. 8)

I managed to get hold of somebody on the phone today....the number on their website still doesn't work but I managed to obtain their head office number (thanks Milton Keynes branch! 8) ) and got hold of somebody there. After being passed on to Customer Services and arguing the toss with a bloke who told me to 'keep trying' the website number because 'sombody will eventually pick it up', I was put through to somebody else who checked my order, apologised for the problems, told me that We Love Katamari is now out of stock and they couldn't get hold of any more copies at the moment :x and promptly cancelled my order, though I won't get the cash back for about 4 to 5 days :x

Never again.... :evil:

And just as an afterthought to this one, I prefer F-Zero GX myself. Pure racing, pure speed, pure fun 8)
GX is a better racing game certainly although not a better driving one.
Yes, I'd agree with that 8)

Gamestation is okay, but they seem to overlook some consoles. I've never seen any Atari Jaguar games, yet they sell Atari 2600/5200 games (i.e. the same console manfacturer) and Sega Saturn games (i.e. from the same era as the Jag).

I guess it's all down to the supply of 2nd hand games, but they need to know when they have over done it on particular titles. The GS in Birmingham New Street has a substantial retro section but when you start sifting through the rows of Megadrive games, you realise that about 80% of the boxes are 20% of the titles - mostly FIFA "bloody" Soccer, Arch "bloody" Rivals etc... :(

CEX used to have a decent retro section but seems to have diminished since GS started doing retro... guess they pay even less than GS for 2nd hand kit.

To be honest they probably buy anything people bring in, they're just not as common as other consoles.

Mine refuses to deal in 8-bit computer stuff after I swamped them with it. Shame as it was a nice little earner for me.
