Right, that’s it, stick a fork in us: we’re done. We’re coming to the end of another year; one that flew by pretty quickly for us whilst we worked on various new delights for you (more on that soon). Gaming-wise we were spoilt silly by the sheer level of humour displayed by Portal 2 in April (still the funniest thing in gaming, cinema and T.V. this year) and then basically waited, breathless with anticipation, for Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. Yes, we dabbled with various games in the meantime but they meant nothing to us (except for our unhealthy addiction to Left 4 Dead 2 at lunchtimes).
So we’ve created profiles for those last two (not for Portal 2 though – seriously, you only need WASD, E, Space and your R.A.T.!) and also added a bunch of M.M.O. profiles in anticipation of the M.M.O.7. Whilst we were at it we thought we’d reorganise how we deal with our profile packs and add support for the M.M.O.7 back into all the previously released profiles, so here you go (click the name ofd the pack you want to start the download):

The profiles will then appear in the pop-up list you get when you right click the R.A.T. icon next to your clock.
