If Empire and Rogue One are marvellous steak meals enjoyed with an amazing red and a beautiful wife and Attack of the Clowns is a pathetic limp McDonald's hamburger then Solo is a burger from a gourmet burger chain. Nice at the time, filling and flavoury, but not something you will recall with deep affection in years to come.


Perfect! :D


Thank you :)

Oh & of course, only one person in the household is able to experience this shodiness!!


A blessing for them given the Belgium performance.

Sounds like the tosser is trying to "reserve" the place, i.e might be having trouble selling their place and don't want to miss out so these tactics prevent anyone else getting it?

But yeah, charge the bellend full whack.

received 2 copies of Yakuza Kiwami 2 thanks to an amazon fuck up - guess I have one to sell for profit

(edit 1) oh no i don't the fuckers have charged me for twice guess one is going back

(edit 2) try to use the return item button & it seems my choice is limited either send it back as unwanted for free but I don't get my refund on it or send it back as no longer needed (or any other option) pay £4 postage and get a partial refund leaving me out of pocket

Was it their mistake or yours? If it was theirs then you can contact them instead and they can set up a free return. There's a chat option somewhere on the site which I've used before when I pre ordered something and couldn't cancel it.

Or, and this is the terrible part of me. Find someone who has bought a copy from a store. Anywhere will do and has the receipt. Take your extra copy back with their receipt for a refund. They won't dispute it at all if it's still sealed.

further digging in my order history shows a second order got one in april one in june, I'm betting at some point they added a description for the steelbook version and didn't merge the pages until later and because it didn't shop the you bought this message at the top I must've ordered it again
what annoys me is that I never saw two separate items on the open orders list to have cancelled one

... Read my Dad's eulogy in front of a packed crematorium of his best friends and family. :cry:

Not the easiest thing I've ever had to do, but me any my sister held it together. He would have been so proud of us both. :)

Well done Tyza mate.

Never be sad because someone's gone, be happy because you knew them, that's how I try to look at loss.

Cheers Mullet, That's exactly how we've been looking at it. We all wore colourful clothes because that's what he wanted. more a celebration than a mourning..
