Okay, this is a somewhat punchy first post... But sod it I'm really PO'd
Okay, I've got my copy of aftershock, and only just read the manual.
Wow, this fecking rocks, spoiler warnings, detailed, assembled with care, this is an oldschool manual, back inthe day were manuals were manuals, and boxes could be used as houses. No problem with that, it's really good.
Not got to install the game yet so no problems here.
WTF is going on with the release.
I went to Game (not in), Virgin (not in), gamestation (you guessed it), and finally HMV, were I found they had 2 copys tucked away.
Now I know strat games are a dying breed, only for those of us who like to use a bit of grey matter every now and again. But this game isn't even sitting on the new relase sections, it's already sitting in the list of other games nobody really gives a damn about.
On the other hand Fm2006 (fair enough, it's the national sport), FEAR (first person shooter done right), and Quake 4 (err universal panning anyone) are spammed all over my face...
So rant off, but seriously the marketing campaign for Aftershock SUCKS.
