    First reaction was eurgghh! change is bad! Rapidly changed to hmmm, it could be a grower.

    Crucially it doesn't strike me as a logo designed by a digital...

    Depends on the game surely. Last I checked (some years back) EVE was hosted in London. And most of the bigger games will have Euro servers which'll generally be slightly quicker to reach from most of...

    (re farming simulator)

    Going to try to stick to the "talk me down" ethos here, ignoring the positives and just focus on why you don't want to buy it now.

    Thanks Sparks - I'm warming to the t-flight. Sure the X52/pro might be "better" but I'm not getting the impression it's a hundred quid better.

    Ouch - I take it you're down under?

    Something odd(er than usual) seems to be happening with Aus/NZ prices. At 30 in the UK (c. $50 US?) it falls into my "very occasional treat" price bracket.

    Gal Civ 3

    Last I looked early access was priced at a rather silly 70 odd quid, now it seems down to a far more reasonable 27 for the weekend.

    Further, it strikes me as the sort of game that doesn't suffer...
