Christmas: we’re calling it

Tuesday, 22 December 2009 08:47 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Before I descend into writing stories about some mad woman that called the police because her son was playing GTA in the middle of the night, I’m going to stop for Christmas.

As you’ve no doubt noticed, our post-rate’s dropped off steadily over December: Steph’s taking a well-earned rest; Nathan’s doing whatever it is Texan students do over the Holidays; Johnny’s getting ready to start full-time in January, and I’ve got a houseful of screaming people. This year’s dead to us.

If anything earth-shattering happens over the next couple of weeks I’ll stick it up. If not, I’ll hibernate. I want to say a giant thank you to all our readers. You’ve given us amazing support this year, and it’s not really possible to tell you how grateful I am. We’re here to stay, and it’s all thanks to you.

We’ll be back at full power on January 4, 2010. Please have a brilliant holiday. See you next year!

    Duels at dawn, discovering oil, and walking slowly into saloons, so as to maximize the ominous sounds our spurs make in conjunction with swinging saloon doors. You know, the usual.

    But I’m not cool, so I mostly play videogames.

    As the editors are being too lazy to post anything (it’s not like they do it everyday of the year GAWD!) I’m taking it upon my self to post up some news.

    First off: PS3 Store Update
    Things of note
    – Hustle Kings
    – Vagrant Story
    – LBP Water
    – Premium Avatars

    Second: Bayonetta IGN Review
    – 360 gets a 9.6 whilst PS3 gets an 8.2

    Thridlydiddly: New Final Fantasy Versus XIII info
    – Apparently the in-game graphics are very close to CG

    That’s all I got

  69. onlineatron

    I’m a little embarrassed.

    Bayonetta is getting stellar reviews across the board but after playing the demo I kinda felt a tad let down.

    Maybe the full game is better but right now I don’t think I’ll buy it (If I do it will be on 360 =D)

    #69 5 years ago
  70. Hunam

    You could always rent it. Might be a few weeks till the hardcore renters have done with it but Blockbusters (if your in old blighty) do a decent week rental for a fiver.

    #70 5 years ago
  71. onlineatron

    Haven’t got a Blockbuster membership… Well, I have but I have a huuuuge fine on it (curse me and my apathy!).

    I may try and swindle a LoveFilm trial for it, but if not there are plenty of other January games for me to play (Darksiders, Mass Effect 2, MAG etc).

  73. OlderGamer

    “Assassin’s Creed 2 DLC is rip off
    - Cut from main game
    - You pay extra”

    I have been saying that for years. This happens a lot these days. As if the 60usd isn’t enough, they have to hold back “DLC” content and charge another 10usd each for it.

    Happens all of the time.

    #73 5 years ago
  74. Gekidami

    Well, as i said some time ago; atleast the DLC isnt essential to the games main plot, unlike the PoP DLC which was pretty much the end of the game being sold separately. Dont feel obligated to buy it.

    Been lurking for a while — been trying not to visit too much but VG247 has got its hooks into me, compulsive reading — just signed up especially to say an end-of-year thanks to Pat, Steph, Mike, Nath, Mouse, and Johnny, and of course the forumites who come up with news stories, and the jolly commenters.

    Great site, Pat, really really enjoy the presentation, one of my most visited of 2009. Have a great holiday, looking forward to the new year.

    Anyone know if there will be a PSN store update today or tomorrow? Just curious due to the holiday as last weeks came early. I’m itchin’ to get my hands on the Hustle Kings (US version due to credit card)

    #119 5 years ago
  120. Syrok

    There won’t be a PSN store update until next year. :)

    #120 5 years ago

    So maybe Friday then (1/1/10)? That would suck if they skip this week entirely.

    #121 5 years ago
  122. Syrok

    They do. Next update is the 7th as Friday is a holiday.

    #122 5 years ago
  123. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    Damn. Thanks Syrok.

    Hey, do you think I can purchase a US PSN gift card then use the number to buy Hustle Kings from the UK store? I wouldn’t want to buy it then encounter a problem trying to run it on my US account. Any info greatly apprecitated.

    #123 5 years ago
  124. Gekidami

    Normally US gift cards will only work in the US Store. Otherwise the game should run perfectly on a US PS3/US account if you manage to buy it using a credit or debit card.
