Also need to give props to my girlfriend as before I could pay she had pushed in and paid telling me its cause I deserve it


I’m wilfully misreading her behaviour as archly passive-sarcastic.

£2.99 is way too much for Star Fox Zero.

I read it as her thinking "this'll get him out of my way for at least a few hours!"

That's a weird one. Especially as MS have just announced that they'll be selling a lot of their PC games on other platforms going forward.

Sega own the IP for Alpha Protocol I think.

Alpha Protocol is quite good. A little rough around the edges, it gets better the more time you put into it. Your character is awful in terms of abilities at the start.

Oh man it's so much better than Mass Effect. I remember the first time I played through I ended up absolutely despising one of the villains. Turns out he was only a villain because of some of the decisions I'd made: it's completely possible to befriend him and even have him as an ally.

The amount to which your decisions affect the game are mind boggling, and something that's never been improved on.

Also, it appears it's the music rights, of all things, that's getting it delisted:

And predictably, Amazon have matched/undercut. £26.95 on Switch, £24.99 on the other two.

Does anyone know if that Xbox Gamepass deal is still on? The £1 one that upgraded whatever remaining Live subscription you had?

One of my workmates is selling me his One X next week and I need gooseberry fool to play.

That’s unfortunate timing. The deal finished at the end of June.
