Review: Dirt 5

Ugh, next-gen racing games look so damn good

During almost any other time, I would not be interested in Dirt 5. I say this confidently because I was not interested in Dirt Rally 2.0 or Dirt 4. There have been seven previous Dirt games (!!) and I did not have a lick of inter...

Disgaea 6 just came Anyone buying day 1 or is it better to wait for a sale in a couple months? Also is the game coming out at 70 dollars instead of 60 a deal breaker for any of you?
