    I noticed that, but I think it might be a zoom issue. Try zooming out a step and see if that fixes it. Either way, I'll raise it with Jamie on Tuesday.

    Call me sad, but I'l rather look to the future than try and remember some of the games I used to play so many years ago.

    Sometimes is good to visit the past so we can go the right direction in the future.

    Or maybe that's just me >.<

    Rocksteady (who made Batman: AA) are based in the UK (though now owned by Time Warner in the US)

    Rockstar North is based in Scotland (though owned by 2K in New York)

    Rare (who made Perfect Dark) are based in Reading (though now owned by Microsoft in Redmond).

    Tomb Raider was made by Core Design, who are based in Derby (though they've since closed and the series is taken by Crystal Dynamics)

    The Alien comes from AVP, which is made by Rebellion, based in Oxford.

    So, all those things are Made in the UK.

    Ahhh...I apologise.

    I looked at the characters, not the studios.

    Batman: new England maybe? :D
    GTA...a rather american franchise...though I'm sure one could find similar looking girls in the UK (freezing their knickers off)
    Perfect Dark...console, no knowledge of mine
    Tomb Raider, yep, and I always thought all british girls were brought up like this!* :thumb:
    Alien...we'll it's Alien...or stems from Giger, who's Swiss.

    Xir

    *well, Fighting Aristocrates or Hogwards anyway
