Hence "lady of negotiable affection" the Monkey Island description of prostitutes. Curiously it filters the word ***** but not prostitute... how... weird.

Select Gamestops around the country will be opening at 12:00 a.m. on February 2 to allow Star Trek Online fans a chance to purchase the game immediately after it officially goes on sale.


Oh dear, which clever marketer thought of that?

Speaking of which, did you know it wouldn't let me view page 5? Kept bouncing back to page 4.

Rehak, maybe?

To be fair, it is a nice marketing idea. It's just unethical because STO's servers can't handle the smaller, pre-release crowd.
