    Game of Thrones will be picked up when the hits the 10 mark.

    Very interested in Gravity Rush and Lollipop Chainsaw though.......

    I was surprised to find that Lollipop Chainsaw was even due for release, it's another of those titles that always seems like it's still months away and then it's on the shelves with no fanfare and in the bargain bucket before the week's out.

    It looks bloody terrible, though. Even the box-art's offensively shit.

    At this point it's just a case of determining what's wrong with Lollipop Chainsaw.

    Crippling technical problems? Likely. Awful gameplay and intolerable cut-scenes? Questionable design choices? All of the above?

    There's also a bitter taste left by the fact this is the first Grasshopper game with content stuck behind a DLC paywall.

    I think Lollipop Chainsaw has been heavily marketed; the amount of throwaway articles I've read about costumes and such is pretty staggering. Then there's all the promotional stuff like this.

    But I don't see much enthusiasm for the game on forums, and given that a number of online stores have slashed the pre-order price to around 30, I'd say we have a bomba on our hands.
