We know it's annoying. You, our loyal readers, get to watch us tell you about how we've played games way before you'll get to - when, no doubt, you reckon you'd get far more from the experience.
Well now you can - at a special VIP, invite-only preview event to play Metroid Other M a full week before it's on shelves.
CVG and Official Nintendo Magazine have 50 tickets to give away to readers for the swanky London event - each of whom can bring a mate along to proceedings.
The lucky winners will also walk away with a Metroid swag bag worth £60 - which includes two top-drawer Metroid DS games.
Want more!? Course you do. There'll also be prizes given out, so if you get picked, don't forget to bring your DS.
The Metroid: Other M Preview event takes place in the evening next Friday (August 27) at Gamerbase, inside the London Piccadilly Circus HMV store.
