Zavvi is doing it AGAIN!!!
Steelbooks arriving in the flimsy brown mailers. Received 3 today, all 3 in those mailers.
Going forward, and I am going to tell Zavvi this, no more games. If they choose to play this game again and I received damaged product, no back and forth communication, it will go straight to replacement or refund. It usually takes some arguing with them to get anywhere.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse
Resident Evil: Extinction

Although not as hideous as most, they still suck nonetheless.

Might just cancel the Zavvi release then, if it's just going to be otherwise identical to the NA release. I should get it cheaper and sooner to boot. Though last I checked, Best Buy Canada still doesn't have them listed.
