It seems alright. I'm confused about the levelling though. I don't like how it doesn't seem to say how many, out of 5, uploads you've yet to vote on to get your exp points.

At least, mine doesn't say...

I think that's just a bug. I don't get any indication of how many animations I've still to vote on either. I must say though, I think I preferred the old level icons. These ones are nice and all, but compared to the old ones they just seem less significant. They don't seem to stand out and I'm not a huge fan of their order. That's just me being picky though.

As far as gaming goes, I'm never on the Xbox now. I think once this week is over and done I should feel a whole load of stress be lifted from my shoulders. Two pretty big coursework submissions will be over with, which I'm hoping means I can get myself back on Battlefield once in a while.

I think I might vote on a couple of more uploads then just to be safe. Havn't had a gander at the levels page so can't say i've noticed the other icons. They do seem a bit have taken a backstep for the new icon where you can upload a picture of yourself or something.

It's rather annoying how little I get to play now. I need to get more time in but I don't get the time in general nowadays.

At an arcade from the mid 90s, yes. I cannot wait for this to hit modern consoles. I'll have so much fun playing this again.

I've been playing it on my roommate's Xbox and it's still as fun as I remember. I'm struggling with getting the achievement for beating the game on expert mode, though.

It has achievements too? Wasn't sure if they were able to do it but now that it's confirmed, that's sweet! I guess I will have to put this game right after beating Stranger's Wrath.

Seriously tempted to buy it, although I'll be waiting until I have a lesser workload to get through. I thought the beta was brilliant fun and I'd be more than happy to buy the full game, assuming it's priced around 1,200MSP or lower.

Another person on the fence here, it's a wonderful game, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Beta. But It's my best friends birthday on Sunday, and I promised him a present, then next month I've got to drive to a music festival with a fair few friends.

I thought you guys might enjoy this script, it bring back the respond to thread option on every post, so you don't need to quote and delete text or scroll back up. Thanks to Xaotic.

Played some of Bastion, fun game. +20

The price should be 15$

I'd buy it even if the price was 30$
I enjoy it way more then mw3 and I love that you can customize your character so much.

So I try to find more games to get on my PS3 and from looking at three retail shops, all I've picked up is Just Cause 2. Although I do have several PS3 games I need to go through, I felt I could do with more to keep myself busy.

My future brother in law is hoping to get that game for free from the company he works for so I'm looking forward to playing it myself whenever possible. I loved SSX from the sixth generation and would like to see how the series has been treated in 2012.

Preordered Mass Effect 3 and Unit 13 on Thursday night and they shipped already so I'll probably have them on release tomorrow. I don't know why people hate Gamestop / EB Games so much. They always get my preordered games to me on time.

I'd definitely recommend picking it up. I wasn't sure if it was going to be as good as I had remembered, but I'm glad to say that it is. Getting a game of four players going (online or local) makes for a really fun time.

Also, here's a warning: The achievement/trophy for getting to the boss of level 3 on survival mode will bug the crap out of you. It took me way too many tries to get that one.

I think you're a little slow on the recommendation. I picked up the game and even went through it with my sister while she was here for my mum's birthday.

I had attempted this but it is a tricky one. Not sure if this has to be solo in order to obtain it, though.

One more week of work to do after this then I'm on a month study break with three exams at the end of it so I'm finally going to get to start gaming again. It has been so long. All I want to do it sit down and play something without having to worry about meeting deadlines. Is that too much to ask?

Skyrim is the first thing on my list of games to play, although I've been wanting to play that again for a while. If I have the patience I might then try and play through Dragon Age: Origins, although I think that will take more dedication than Skyrim will.

Majora's Mask is really in need of a replay. From the looks of things it'll be a few years until we see it on the 3DS so for now I'll have to settle with the GC port. I've only played through the whole game once and that was five years ago. Since then I've played Ocarina of Time three times and I prefer Majora's Mask (but hey, OoT is still damn good). Ocarina of Time feels more straight-forward so it's easier to play through it time and time again.

Just thought I'd leave this here. It's been front paged so you may have seen it already, but it's pretty good and I'm sure some of you guys will find it amusing if you haven't already.:

Walked past my local GameStation last night when I was on route to the pub and discovered that yes, it has closed down. They had the windows covered with posters which read "Nearerst GAME store: Edinburgh" and "Nearest GameStation store: Carlisle". Looks like I no longer have a dedicated high street gaming store now. I'll miss that place.

RIP my local GameStation store :(

Damn, that sucks. It's happened to me and it always suck to have to change your routes to get games. How far are Edinburgh and Carlisle from you?

To get to the one in Edinburgh, maybe a little under an hour by car. I'm not sure how long it takes to get to Carlisle, but I'd guess an hour and a half. Never actually been there.

the worst part is that I now have no real reason to want to venture into town during the day. GameStation was the only store that I actually had a proper look around. Now if I want to buy games I'll have to get them online. I just prefer having physical shops. It was nice to walk around and be surrounded by video games.

This, I am sure as hell going to miss my local store. Sure I can browse some of the latest titles in Tesco or Morrisons, but it's just not the same as being surrounded by games.

I'm trying to beat the first Sonic game AND get all the chaos emeralds. Any of you guys managed to pull this off? If you have, I commend you.

I think it's the most frustrating thing ever but I am determined to do it! Currently have up to the green emerald. I think there's two to go? This will be a productive day.

That's good news. I hope this means that my local GameStation store will be opening up again, although I'm sure the bigger stores will be their priority. Although maybe the fact that mine is the only one for quite some distance, they might open it back up.

In Sonic related news, I got the sixth chaos emerald, expecting the following boss battle to be the last one, but there's more levels. This Labyrinth zone is a pain in the ass. Although does anyone know if there's still a point in trying to finish the levels with 50+ rings? I did act one of this zone like that and never got anything special happen.

Think I might go for a walk to let out some of the rage that has built up as a result of playing this.

I WILL BEAT THIS GAME!

Note to self: Never try playing the earlier Resident Evil games using the classic gameplay style right after indulging yourself with 4 and 5 back-to-back. I was going to start up Code Veronica but had a hard time adapting to the gameplay. I felt better just by picking up REmake again.
