Just got Tales of Borderlands on Steam, hope it's released soon, I'm missing my fix of Telltale games!

Also got Life of Pixel, installing now, looks perfect for retrogamers.

I got the following Gamecube games in CEX
F Zero, Viewfull Joe 2 and Dark Alliance (all perfect condition) I never knew the latter 2 came out for the Gamecube, and a really knackered Velvet Assassin with a deep circular scratch same as I like that game a lot! Also got HItman for £2 not sure why and some Pervy looking Jap Megadrive tetris clone with Bunny Girls plays surprisingly well

Bought Assassin's Creed Unity. I really enjoyed Black Flag, and while I'm not expecting something anywhere near as memorable, I'm hoping for some enjoyable stealth gameplay. We'll see.

That's one game that was nowhere near finished when it was released... hence the review embargo.

The bug when the faces disappear during the kissing scene 8 very funny though.

That's disappointing. Seems standard fare these days - LittleBigPlanet 3 sounds like it's plagued by similar issues.

Yes sadly so. Internet connection gives developers an out.

The YouTube channel review tech USA has a theory that this type of behaviour will bring on the next video game crash.

It's shameful... bf4 was out months before it worked properly.

dissapointing yes, standard fare? hardly.

Its just the bug ridden games are more talked about. dozens of other games are still released with no big issues.
