It's a pretty good game, but the translation is incredibly slap dash in places. The localisation really had no expense spent.

Unless it is straight up garbled text in places, I cannot see myself minding any translation issues.

:mrgreen: Got the game this morning. I hope it entertains because otherwise I don't have anything else substantial (in game form) to occupy my time with.

edit: Oh wait! Actually, I do have Danganronpa 2 I could get on with.

Sending Digimon back asap as I just couldn't get into it. Should have stuck with Republique. :fp:

When do Boomerang tend to despatch Tuesday releases?

Dunno about Tuesday launches, but I usually get launch games on the day of release or before. For popular launches they'll often start dispatching two days before release, though that's usually for the big multiplat AAA games.

edit: Nothing to play. Got desperate and rented SHAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNN!/Beyond Two Souls remaster.

Think I'm going to knock my subscription down to 1 game at a time rather than 2. I've got such a backlog and already splitting my time between console, handheld and PC gaming that I'd be better saving the few quid.

Seeing as I've cancelled my Netflix subscription, is this worth bothering with? Or is it still a bit pants?

It's possibly pants if you opt fot one of the lower tiers. It's pretty strawberry floating ridiculously good if you opt for one of the priority services, and send your last rental back before the next latest release you want is er, released.

Ah ok.. Who am I thinking of then?

Never got the games you wanted and would charge you twice a month etc.

Might've been the other one back in the day.. SwapGame?

edit: They did have a issue with CC details leaking, but they denied it and then it took 'em ages to upgrade their system to a more secure one. I never had a issue with my card, though.

I'm on Priority 2. (£16 pm. 2 games out at a time. Unlimited rentals. 1st class postage envelopes.)

Below is a list of all the games I've rented.

If you cba, you can check the dates of dispatch for the AAA games, and you'll see the vast majority, if not nearly all of big releases, were sent out upon their initial release date. The ones that weren't, I didn't have them down as launch rentals as I wasn't *that* interested in them, (stuff like CoD, Battlefield) or stuck them on my rental list only after they were on in stock/0-3 day dispatch/free rental status.

According to their account page, I have saved approx £2,072 since joining in late 2014.

I was going to sign up for it after Lovefilm stopped their game rentals but there wasn't a similar Boomerang service around the same price for what I wanted.

I used to get all games on release day but lately the postie has been letting me down. Ratchet and Clank is the latest in the long line that haven't arrived on launch.

Well in, lad. I'm trudging through Far Cry Primal and it's dull as gooseberry fool.

In other news, Galaxy Rush Remastered is now a bonus game, but it's also in the latest PSN sale for a measly 10 wraps. Decisions, decisions...

Galaxy Rush, eh. :P

I'd definitely get it as a bonus game. (Not least because I expect it to be a PS+ title around the time Gravity Rush 2 hits.)
