    You did beat me to it :nothing:

    Well done :clap2: How many platinums have you got now?

    And yea, good timing indeed :woo:
    Six now

    Has the LBP theme always been free? There's a new LBP theme included in today's store update - I assume/hope that it's the dynamic one. Somthing to try out later, I think.

    FFXIII seems good so far. I can see what people have been getting at with the linearity, but then again, I'm only in the first chapter right now. :o: Those who do have it (I'm looking at you, Geoff :p:) - I know that there's an achievement for collecting all 'treasures' (so, don't sell anything), but is there anything else missable that I should know about?

    That's pretty much it I think. Do not sell ANY accessories or weapons (unless you've got a ridiculous amount of the same item), and make sure you explore the maps THOROUGHLY to find the treasures. It's not hard to find the treasure "chests" anyway since they're always at the end of a dead-end!

    If you've never played a FF before this one, you probably don't mind the linearity anyway! :p: It took a bit of getting used to for me, but it grew on me.

    At the moment I'm just making my characters as strong as possible post-game. Each character now has at least 17,000 HP. :awesome:

    I've played both FFX and FFXII on the PS2, though neither all the way through :o: (something that I'm looking to change this time around).

    You really should give them a try!


    Oh, and Geoff - I forgot to add that I also have FFVII for gradual playing on my PSP. I never had a PS1 so missed it the first time around

    Let us know which you get, though you can't really go too far wrong with those (granted, GoW's not my kind of game, but most people love it :p:).

    Good luck with the MW2 platinum! I found Spec Ops to be where I fell down on my (incomplete) attempt. :o:

    VII is very good too. VIII was the best imo.

    I also downloaded VII months ago for nostalgia's sake! Haven't really played it though!

    I want to get VIII on download eventually, but I don't see any point in buying it just yet as there's so many other games to play. :sigh:

    ive never been interested in JRPGs, not or any RPG really, the only ones ive properly got into are the KOTOR series, and Fallout.

    I used to sit at my mates house, and he would just play ff.... and it bored the hell out of me, seriously, i would literally fall asleep, i didn't find the story engaging, the gameplay looked meh, i dont see the appeal!

    Fair enough, I suppose! :p: KOTOR and Fallout are good too (I really ought to see about finding a cheap copy of Fallout 3 GotY at some point for the extra DLC). :yes:

    MW2 Stimulus Package arriving here for the PS3 on May 4th.

    It will probably cost at least £10 too. No thanks...

    :sadnod: Enough people will buy it regardless of price that they can get away with it. :sigh:

    I had fallout3 for my xbox, 15 hours of gameplay lost thanks to RROD, so when i went for the PS3 version a while back, the GOTY edition was like £40, the standard was £15 maybe, i figured its probably not as much to pay for the dlc on PSN, and i can choose what i want, some of them are crap apparently.
