I actually ordered this game in March 2013 based on impressions that made it look much more like an RPG than is actually the case, now that the game is complete - there has obviously been a lot of hype about this game and the PS4 needs a big game to push sales - but playing it on PS3, it's not as bad as some people are making out.

So I decided to look into Internet Radio and found out about things like this from online articles and the shop Richer Sounds. In fact I tried to buy one there, but they had none in stock to offer me, so I got this from Amazon.

I had been using a tuner to play DAB connected into my Hi Fi system, over big speakers and this unit it very similar in shape, size and colour to my DAB unit. I connected this up - plugging the stereo leads provided into an Aux channel on my amplifier… Read more
