Deadly Premonition arrived on Games on Demand today, but publisher Rising Star is urging European customers not to buy it yet. It's supposed to be available for £14.99 on Xbox Live, but went up for the exorbitant p...
Let's assume, for the moment, that you are European and made the deeply foolish decision not to buy Deadly Premonition when it released on your continent back in October of last year. You have made a terrible, terrible mistak...

I like Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. as a game, but I hate the name. See, I hate that it sounds a bit red-necky. I could see it on the back of a pick-up truck window. And that phrase "watch you like a hawk" sounds silly. Also, I hate...
I guess Major Nelson hates Phantasy Star (probably a Final Fantasy fanboy) because he didn't say anything about Phantasy Star Universe being on Games on Demand.  It's up there now. Sega's MMO can be downloaded directly t...
