Provide a screenshot or URL so we can have it removed from our ad package.

I don't use the forum much but always use this site for the news, and yes i was just coming to complain about this advert aswell, i understand not alot will get done as it's how you make your revenue, but seriously this ad is way over the top, if you a move your cursor over the small ad, which must take up nearly 1/4 of your browser, then the thing opens too full screen and is just damn annoying and intrusive! Also this is a 18 rated horror film, while i don't care because it just looks like some awful CGI, to a little kid wanting innocently looking up some Xbox information the advert could actually be quiet terrifying!

To see the add just go on your homepage, i must litually have had it about 50% of the time i've been on this website in the last week or so.

Ok, it's a big advert, but adverts are designed to grab your attention and it certainly has grabbed peoples attention. I accidentally clicked on it once and yes it did take me to Play.com. I soon rectified that though by hitting the back button...

All you have to do to avoid the advert appearing is to not put your mouse pointer over the advert and it will leave you alone.

I agree though that certain parts of the trailer could be scary for kids, but if it says 18 certificate on it, most kids would leave well alone wouldn't they ?

Just my opinion....

Has happened to me, three or four times. Then again I hate them Gamernook adverts, I still prefer this one over them.
