Lovefilm STILL hasn't sent me Dead Island yet.

What am I paying them for again?

That looks pretty sweet. I wish I had the space in my room to have some kind of display set up. All my games are pretty much piled up in a cupboard, hidden away from everyone. Such a shame :(

I got so nervous as soon as I entered that interview room at Gamestation (well it was a staff lounge really), still when they asked me "How do you find out about game news? latest releases? upcoming releases? etc" I was all like "Oh yeah, I well go on Kotaku all the fucking time", not worded like that but I think the fact that I even mentioned a gaming news website will help a fair bit.

How did you get an interview and job? Simply walked in with your cv and handed it in? I've been thinking about maybe getting a job at GAME or gamestation at some point.

When you went to hand in the CV though, how did you go about doing it? Did you browse the store first and then sort of be all like "we'll while I'm here I might as well hand in this CV" or did you just get straight to the point by handing it over and leaving?

I think working in a game store would be pretty cool, although I feel like I know less and less about the current game releases now that I know I'm not going to be able to afford them for a while.

Good luck and all that though.

I was in a rush at the time, I had friends waiting in my car, so I just handed it in with a covering letter, and then said bye.

Ahhh fair does. I may have to go enquire in my local game store to see if they need any extra workers.

Especially with Christmas slowly creeping up.
Very slowly.

Mini suggested that the GS Leaderboard chat was getting too general, so I pointed them all in this direction. I wasn't expecting people to actually come here, but thankfully it looks like this lounge might now be put to proper use.

this has been here for like 2 years, so that works out to 15 pages a year, or about 1.15 pages a month? and in a day we managed to get through more than an entire page?

Anyone in the PS3 leaderboard might wanna point people in this direction if you feel your leaderboard is getting a little bit too general.

Dean gave out various threats to anyone who spoke about games in the leaderboard thread and i'm sure most of us wouldn't want an angry scotsman chasing after us.

We all decided to stop using the gamescore thread as the general lounge, and use the general lounge as the general lounge.

Well, now that I'm back at uni and adjusting to my old schedule, I'm surprised that the few hours of free time that I actually get to spend on Xbox don't fly by like I thought they would. Still, I'd much rather it was the summer so that I could just mess about.

Still really wanting to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dead Island. Was going to ask my make for a loan of his Deus Ex copy, but then I remembered he bought it on PS3. Brother has a copy of Dead Island so still hopeful that I'll get a chance to play it within the next few weeks if he's done with it by then.

(Note: I don't actually post on the Video Game forums that much, but I can still post here, right?)
So, anyway, a few things I wanted to say:

First of all..if you haven't tried Deux Ex, just do it.Seriously.
I'm very picky with my games, especially the ones that claim to have an "epic story" that's not just a token or an excuse for you to bash heads, and yet I can safely say that it's the best game I've played since..uh..probably since Mass Effect 2.
As I'm sure many people have already said, one of the things I like the most is that it doesn't think you're an idiot, there's no hand-holding in the missions.
It feels like a Hitman game (well duhhhh, Eidos) with a bit of MGS and Mass Effect sprinkled on it.

The second thing I have to say is a problem of mine...I posted a thread about it, but to no avail.Red Orchestra 2.
I've rarely come across a game that has divided gamers so much.You have people saying it's glorious, and gritty, and that the guns feel powerful, and that there are real tactics involved as opposed to the usual twitch shooting and so on..
But then, you also have people saying that it's really unstable, that it looks terrible, that it tries too hard to be realistic, taking away some of the fun, that the whole thing is very bugged and that you have to struggle to actually do something instead of running around the map like an idiot.

The last point, I really didn't like.It reminded me of the stupidly big maps in BFBC2 where you had to spend half your life running through an open field until you actually arrived somewhere useful..it was, by far, the most frustrating aspect of that otherwise good game.

So, can anyone confirm/deny any of that?I really need to know before they release the game on Zavvi (where I'm going to buy it from, IF I'm going to buy it), which is like in a day and a half from now.

Tramps got me thinking of selling some of my Xbox 360 games in order to be able to buy some of the newer releases, seeing as I don't play a lot of the games now anyway. Still, now that I have a collection of 650+ games over all consoles, it's a little hard to start selling things now.

I'd really love to get my hands on a copy of Deus Ex though and be able to get Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and possibly Modern Warfare 3 on or at least around release. I probably would be able to fund them all just from selling my games, but it would definitely help.

I just can't decide whether I want to start selling games now or not.
