    I agree, especially the 'I've got GRAW' threads and 'where's the cheapest place to get GRAW from?' etc. :rolleyes:

    A sense of irony I know. But just looking at them, too many and not very interesting. I more than most make idiot comments, but I cant see how anyone really gives two hoots if your order has been posted, nor about the raging debates on how quickly the royal mail can deliver your order.

    Patience is a virtue. Does it really matter that you have to wait a day? Some postings are of interst however, just annoying you have to trawl through so much crap to get there.

    There are a lot of GR:AW threads but it's the hot new thing. If people are talking on the thread I would say it's justified and will die out if no one is interested.
    If you see a thread with GRAW in the title don't look on it.

    Thats not really the point though. Joe Bloggs play order being posted on tuesday, when will it arrive is hardly the areas of greatest discussion. If you count how many threads there are its something like 16, not one or two. Some are good and valid such as Kopites league discussion, but I am not talking about them.

    Yes I am excited at this game. But for pity's sake, such dumbing down of discussion is having an adverse affect on these forums.

    I agree to an extent, but it's only really to be expected - we've been starved of new games since January and this is a particularly good and highly anticipated one at that. It is a bit annoying that there are so many threads though :suicide:

    I totally agree!
    Who cares; who's got it, when they got it, what they were wearing when they got it :confused:
    There is too much rubbish clogging up the forum, containing absolutely no useful information.

    Just so you know; I will be buying GRAW, I pre-oredered it from my local GAME store and will probably pick it up on Sunday wearing some kind of Jeans and T-Shirt combo :cool:

    I can see your point of view, and it is understandable - but this is a community and the people in it like to share experiences, it's human nature. I found some of the order status messages very useful in deciding how to sort out my own order, although there has been an awful lot of repetition - but I just skip over them. It will die down in a few days - look at what it was like on launch day when everyone was posting "my xbox has/hasn't arrived yet" etc... :D

    Perhaps thats what I am most annoyed about. I dont mind reading stuff if its funny (I try to make any threads enjoyable to read), but Ive read books for uni which were more exciting...

    I don't do hoodies anyway so I'm safe!
    I bought a nice zip-up top the other week in Bluewater, might wear that :D

    If you want any more details on my 'going to get GRAW' outfit, please feel free to ask.
    I may not answer though!

    My GRAW from play came today, delivered home whilst I'm at work. It's a dress down day, jeans (Levi) and an FCUK casual shirt - short sleeved.

    Not sure what the Postie was wearing but I would imaging something fetching in blue, set off with matching bag accessory.

    Please could you tell us what packaging it came in. Mine was kind of a sandy complexion with bubble wrap on the inside.

    Ooh nice, it must be the in colour / texture combo because mine was the same.
