@MrClump no problems. It took about 3 hours for my account to get activated.

Just played PUBG on ultra settings on my MacBook Pro - a couple of drops, but worked well.

@MrClump it basically means your shadow account hasn't been created yet. You'll get another email when your account is ready to go.

Good luck if you can't read French as you'll need to setup Windows 10 when you first login and it'll all be in French. Took me bloody hours to get it to run in English.

The exclusion of videogame / movie OST from the official classical artist charts hasn't always been the case.. A quick bit of digging on the official chart site reveals that both Arkham Origins and The Fellowship of the Ring OST were both included in the charts back in November 2013

http://www.officialcharts.com/charts/classical-artist-albums-chart/20131103/147/

I can find no reference in any news articles about OST or game soundtracks being excluded from x date.

Also, earlier this year the official charts excluded a classical re-recording of the Quadrophenia soundtrack: http://www.music-news.com/ShowNews.asp?nItemID=90073

I remember the press junket for this; they flew journos out to Paris for dinner and a ride on the Orient Express. T'was the first time I had been to Paris.

Game is good too - will definitely be picking this up on iOS.

CEX in Rathbone Place used to be the place to go in the 90s if you didn't mind the rude staff who would stop serving you mid-transaction to answer the phone and the VERY loud music. There was also a place just off Carnaby Street.

I made many a journey down from Norfolk just to check out the games stores, stock up on manga I couldn't read and browse the bookshops in Soho.
