Unless "lock-in" is preceded by the word "pub" - I'm not interested :mrgreen:

That and I value a decent nights sleep - between working, a part-time engineering degree & having a little boy (1 year, 9 months) I need every one I can get!

As much as I am looking forward to Dead Space 3, I'll not be going to the Newcastle lock in. I'll get it when it comes out and have my own 'lock in' with a few beers and a the game unspoiled by playing it in a store with 100 other people.

No offence, but why are you telling us your kids exact age?

That's not a political rant. A political rant would imply you had some knowledge about the subject you were talking about "Half the country" may have been a hyperbole, however throwing statements around like this is dangerous when we have people on the poverty line and unable to get what they need. FYI it's more like 3% who claim benefit.

Don't bother trying to explain. He's swallowed all the Tory/Murdoch bulls*** statistics like most people. They've deliberately set low paid workers against people on benefits so they won't demand better wages. If it weren't so f***ing evil, I'd be impressed.

Having to live on any kind of benefit is a nightmare, you live under constant threat of having it taken away for no good reason, you have no financial security, and now you're labelled a "bum" or a scrounger by idiots who believe everything they read in the Sun or Mail.

Thank God we've only got a couple more years before the Tories get kicked out and the LibDems can't get a seat on an empty bus.

I'll second that Mbs, having to live with any kind of benefit can be horrible, and incredibly depressing in my case and many others, whilst there are some who would sponge these are a minority, and we shouldn't tar anyone with the same brush. I'm thankful to be off now with a half-decent job, but come on, don't make comments like that it's quite ignorant.

I'm not angry, just disappointed in you :wink:.

No worries man, we all say things without thinking now and again, thank you for the decency to apologise, it's not as if you were 100% wrong, you were just generalising that's all.

Well...21 months probably would have sounded less strange, but because that's how old he is? Do you go round telling people you're a year older 3 months before your birthday? That and looking after a child of that age can be pretty 'demanding' (and equally rewarding)

Back to the topic of conversation; my point was this kind of PR/marketing stunt is lost on me - mainly due to my other commitments, and I can wait a few months until release. Isn't there a public demo scheduled some time soon? With limited early access requests?

As for Bezza & Bubble's comments, I was fortunate enough to have started my job/degree shortly before he was born - very fortunate infact, could have been another of those generalisations.

Apology accepted, I've been guilty of huge sweeping generalisations in the past, so no harm done. Maybe read a little more Guardian and a bit less Murdoch, life's all about balance after all? :wink:

You didn't offend me, just sort of worried me. Feel free to think what you want I'm not going to try and change your views, if you think too many people claim benfits, then think that! It's your freedom of thought! However, we are at, in my opinion, a worrying time for the poor and to dismiss them all as benefit scroungers is not cool
