Amazon lies to UK government and pays even less tax

Summary: Last year Amazon said that it earned £320 million in the UK yet only paid £3.2 million in tax. Don't we all wish we only paid 1%. The trouble is though that Amazon told its US audience that it earned over £4 billion in the UK market. Either Amazon is lying to the UK tax authorities or it is confused. It certainly is grossly immoral.
Excerpt: "Dark Chronicle is a game that excels in many areas, but its main drawback is the fact that it can be a little repetitive at points and has the potential to take well over 100 hours to explore every facet of the game. The story starts with a short but effective battle tutorial that it is possible to lose if you are a complete incompetent. After a dramatic murder scene, you are introduced to one of the two main characters, called Max, and eventually, ...
Excerpt: "...Chronicle is the sequel to Dark Cloud. The game begins in the quiet town of Palm Brinks which has been shut off from the rest of the world for some time.

Excerpt: "Title : Dark Chronicle, also called Dark Cloud 2 in the US Format - PS2 Developer - Level 5 Publisher - SCEE Genre - RPG Players - 1 £16.99 @ smartshopper.com The sequel to Dark Cloud, I can easily call this the best RPG game ever. For a start, I wouldn't put this game into just one genre - it includes many different gameplay elements.

Pros: switch between two characters, long gameplay time
Summary: Although I did enjoy playing this game I do not believe it deserves the accolades it has received, in my opinion it's good not great. It is, however, a great improvement on Dark Cloud - no doubt. New ideas such as the photography, inventions, spheda ensure this, and it looks much better also. The problem is that in the end it still involves running around a number of locations with multiple levels, fighting the same old monsters.
Summary: Hey there! Well, what can i say, except that this is a fantastic game, not to be missed! Ok, I know its got cutesy graphics and that cell shaders don't always show off their true potential, but believe me this game is so absorbing, so full of character that you won't even notice it, and when you do, you won't really care because you'll be loving every second of it by then.
Summary: Although the first game lacked in almost every aspect of an RPG title it did feature a new and unused system on the PS2, this being the unique and fun GEORAMA system. It did have some bugs. These mainly that you hyad to keep the city you were building to a strict scene to get the best you could. The endless repetitive dungeons have been kept, however they feature mini-bosses and have an exceptional style of combat. The graphics have been changed to the cell-shaded style.
Summary: Zu diesem Spiel kann man viele Meinungen haben. Für mich spielt es sich nicht wie ein reinrassiges Rollenspiel. Es fehlt z.B. ein direkter Characteraufbau über Level. Dafür kann man Waffen Verstärken in dem man oft mit Ihnen Kämpft. Zusätzlich lassen sich Abwehr und Lebenspunkte der Character stärken wenn man im Aufbau Teil des Spieles die Gegenden nach vorgabe Aufbaut und dannach entsprechende Gegenstände findet.
Summary: Lange wurde mir von Rezensionisten und Rollenspielfreunden dieses Spiel empfohlen. Lange habe ich mich gescheut den sehr hohen Preis für dieses Spiel zu zahlen, aber meine Leidenschaft für Rollenspiele siegte. Heut muß ich sagen "leider". Ich will dieses Spiel nicht schlecht machen, aber ich hatte nur mäßig Spaß daran. Event, wie man heute so sagt, ist das Aufbauen der Städte und Ortschaften, wie auch "dieses Golfspiel, genannt(Spheda, oder so ähnlich)".
