    Since we talked so much about Radiant Historia and the fact that it's hard to find came up, I thought I'd mention that Atlus has just announced that they're doing a second print run of the game. So if you haven't bought it yet, more copies should be available in March. Make sure you get it this time, because I'm sure they'll sell fast.

    I have a giant shoe in my mouth after this, seeing as how skyrim was my game of the year, with the witcher 2 as a close second. Also Glenn, its a PC RPG so of course I played it

    Can you pre-order a second print of something? I don't want to miss this. If it's not possible, it should be.
