First Impressions

Nothing 2: David Reeves' Adventures in Douchebaggery is quite the amazing game. Its intent on aggravating the player to the point of driving him to madness shines through at almost ever corner you turn. You want to love the game, but its shear incompetence makes it hard to do so. Yes, there is something here you would want to love, but it is burred deep down. Only true fans of the genre will have nice things to say about this one. However, it is likely many of these problems will be fixed for the US and Japanese release, so please don't feel downhearted!

:lol @ banner.

The NIN pack is mine. Too bad Closer isn't in it, just for the singing. Yes, what family entertainment with such lyrics as "I want to fuck you like an animal, I want to feel you from the inside"!

As an FYI the 360 got a new Guitar Hero 3 song pack, the No Doubt pack...but given the track record that doesn't instantly mean they'll be on PSN today, though it's possible.

There seems to be some Hot Shots Golf 5 DLC on the JP store, ¥500. Can anyone with an understanding of moon language tell me if it's just a new character, or the new Australia course too? I've only got ¥600 and need to decide between the HSG dlc or the Dark Mist dlc :(

Wow. I hope that UK update is in no way indicative of what we'll be seeing in the NA store.

Honestly, only one sequel to DRAID? I thought SCEE had been milking that one for much longer.

-Dark Mist Expansion Pack - ¥500 (4-player online multiplayer)

Eh, just bought this and was suprised to see it was only 168kb - once I started Dark Mist it detected I didn't have the latest data and began downloading the actual Depths of Darkness expansion which is over 900mb o_O It must be quite a sizeable expansion. Anyone know if the 3 new characters it adds can be played in single player as well as multiplayer?
