“The incredible detail, the huge open world and the sheer scale of the game should have left gamers jizzing everywhere. We even increased production in the run up to the launch to make sure that we wouldn’t be caught out.” said David Hamilton, UK Sales Director for Kleenex, “But it seems to have had the opposite effect, with the ambitious storyline and ability to play as several different characters keeping people so enthralled that they are forgetting everyday tasks like washing, eating and giving themselves a five knuckle shuffle.”

“The second they complete the game they will probably have a massive wank over it anyway.”
