Do I use my JB voucher and get it here in AU, or do I import from Asia and use the promotion code I got with Tekken Hybrid off Play Asia??

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the Vanguard right now. Played it as my main on the last 2 games but now playing on Hardcore it feels just a bit easy, I take a shotgun along just in case but honestly I’ve hardly even used it since Charge/Nova combo pretty much decimates everything so far.

If I was forced to make the choice, it would be KOF13 ANYDAY of the week... SFxT is a broken unbalanced and frustrating mess of a game. It was nice that they tried to do something like this, but lets face it, it wasnt really going to work and now I fear for Namco's efforts. Also, can the whole spammy boss battle die already? A boss should be about difficulty and being a challenge, not having him throw 10 fireballs at you and then doing a super counter as you go in for a hit. Literally there have been rounds that were 50 seconds in before I scored a hit on the boss.
Another thing: DONT MAKE BOSS CHARACTERS SELECTABLE!! This is why they end up being spammy and cheap... what happened to the good days of unselectable boss characters?
Good news though - an email from PlayAsia confirmed that by the weekend I will have:
* Yakuza Dead Souls
* Silent Hill Downpour
* Silent Hill HD Collection
I'm way too excited to be able to make a decision as to what to play first, but I think it will be SHD (lets hope its patched by then!)

meet Bianca, go off ghost busting with her to save a cat
2 hours later we part company as freinds
ff a week
tuesday night i marry her and we go to sleep then adventure together for 2 hours
last night we walk through a cave for around an hour and a half and she faints when we reach the next town
a good rest and she's feeling better so on we go
half way though the next cave she says to me ' mum, i think i might already be..... never mind '
what's worse is i met her when i was 6 and she was 8
now we're 16 and 18 and it's not even legal
and last night she had twins

Ninja Gaiden 3 - too stupidly hard, I have no idea how to fight the bosses
Resident Evil Raccoon City - poor shooting game where you dont even know if you are hitting your targets, After dying in the same spot over and over and over and over again, I gave up
Ridge Racer Unbounded - Ridge Racer cars were always a little bit hard to control (a little) - but it was an arcade sim so you knew it wasnt always that bad - this throws that out of the window. Atfer 2 hours I havent done ONE SUCCESSFUL drift (powerside), its too bad because the destruction (Burnout) elements of the game are so fun
The Idolm@ster - is actually fun but since I dont know any Japanese I need my friend at my house to play this - and she really loves this game

the case is empty
she's either lost it or hiding it
ozgame has Children of Mana ds for $23.99
less if you use the bonus 5000 points they gave us
and the wait begins

Interested in thoughts on this game! Let us know

Im playing on veteran (the middle of three difficulties - im not an especially awesome gamer) and so far its pretty easy (other than a brain snap where I ran into a hail of bullets for no real reason). The graphics are great, as to be expected from a big developer well into a console generation cycle. The over-the-shoulder-view will take a bit to get used to. Ive played all the Gears games, with the same view, and found their OOTS view to be quite intuitive and easy. This OOTS view appears to be a bit further back and off at a higher angle. I've actually found myself looking at the character on-screen thinking its a squad mate, then going "oh yeah, thats me".
I went through the first level, and at the end I saw I didnt get a really good score, and as a result a few weapons unlocks werent achieved, which might be a bit annoying, as the weapons unlocks and tinkering will be a big part of the game.
You can throw a sensor grenade into a crowd and it will identify enemies, which is useful occasionally (and the game basically tells you when to do it anyway), but they tend to become "unidentified" once the enemies move a bit, which seems a bit odd too.
The controls will also get a bit of taking used to, as they dont seem to follow the generally accepted FPS layout - I found myself jumping instead of crouching etc.
Will put a bit more up when I have another run. I thoroughly enjoyed Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2, and have been looking forward to the next iteration for a long time now, so I hope it lives up to expectations/hopes.
