    How are Zavvi with their delivery? I want to preorder the KZ3 with the controller that Mo posted but I don't want it to be a week late.
    Anyone seen Crysis 2 gameplay? Looks :sogood: Apparently the demo is the best looking game out on the 360. I don't know whether to buy it or Operation Homefront...both decent FPS releasing a couple of days apart.....And there's BRINK as well which got good reviews at E3. Test drive Unlimited 2 and Twisted Metal are releasing soon as well.
    FFS games overload! :woo: Can't they just release them at regular intervals so I can buy a few more

    Crysis 2 looks pretty bad compared to the PC version. Of course, they will never be able to hit the same as the PC in consoles, but yeah, it's probably the best looking game for consoles right now.

    That's pretty :awesome:
    Fans always make good short movies. They should really get fans to write and direct movies that are based on games, rather than letting Hollywood ruin them all.

    I've no experience with pre-orders, but everything I have ordered has taken about a week to arrive after dispatch.
    Then there's the game I ordered in December which never arrived. I contacted their customer service and that took a week for them to get back to me too, telling me they were sending me a declaration form or something to sign before I can get a refund. That was sent 2nd class, so that was almost another week. I eventually got the refund on 26th January after ordering on the 13th December.

    Of course that's just one person's bad experience, and the game not arriving is probably Royal Mail's fault rather than theirs. But the customer service could be better, as could their delivery times. Preorders may hay be better :dontknow:

    Saying that, Play.com's delivery seems to have gotten a bit worse too, I used to order things and they would arrive within a couple of days after despatch. I ordered something the other week and that took about a week too.


    On another note, bought LBP2 today want to finish Singularity first though otherwise I'll end up forgetting about it and never finishing it.

    I took a shot at the KZ3 + controller deal at Zavvi so hopefully I won't go through all the crap you went through.

    It was a shame to cancel my pre-order with Bee.com. There was no option to cancel my order through their site, so I emailed them and within 5 minutes I had a reply saying my order had been cancelled. I've never actually bought anything from there but they seem to be reliable lol.

    I'm not gonna bother cancelling my order tbh, I don't really like the hut group when it comes to delivery. I'll probably sell or trade the one that delivers second. For £30 I'll find a buyer for sure :sexface:

    It's actually pretty decent, would've been better if it wasn't for the same KZ2 controls but I guess I'm too used to CoD :rolleyes:

    The customisations are much better although no doubt people will reach the top rank within a couple of weeks...
