Okay, so we now all know that PT stands for ‘playable teaser’. But what else does it stand for? ‘Pure terror’? ‘Perpetual torture’? ‘Pants tainter’?

When I was a kid (or rather, when I was smaller – I’m just a 30 year old kid now, really), I often spent school holidays with my grandparents in their caravan at a mobile home park in the New Forest. This was always a big treat for me because, aside from spending time with my beloved relatives, I got to enjoy the big games arcade they had on site. It was there I spent a great deal of time, pumping all my pocket money into an ever-hungry game called Gauntlet. My obsession with that kind of game continues to this day.
That’s what they’ve basically told me to do anyway.

Upon attempting to register the console via Club Nintendo I was hit by a message:
“You cannot register this item again”
