Flat calm before storm...

Good opening for the PC version of Wolfenstein. I believe that the 44GB size pushed some PC gamers to get it at retail instead of Steam.


Michael-5 (on 03 June 2014)

Pokemon is impressive, 5th if you ignore Wolfenstein. WiiU will explode next week (how many console sales with that 1.2 million?)
