  3. Skyrim Special Edition (PS4/XB1/PC)

    I went the Dawnguard route, was enjoyable and more interesting the vampire route.
  4. Your 2017 Gaming Diary

    Dedided to pick up Guns, Gore and Canaloni in the recent PSN sale. Finished it today, not a bad game. Played the sequel at EGX this year, the first is pretty good. Basically it is exactly as the title says. Plenty of Guns, Gore and Canaloni. It's roughly 3 hours from start to finish, and i didn't get bored at all
  5. Job woes/wins

    The facebook community page we have for the town was (and probably still is) having an argument over the snow and school closures. I thought it was pretty funny reading some comments. Still, was an hour late in this morning due to the snow. Got up 6:30am, first thing i did was check the trains. The Cross Country train services were cancelled due to the weather and the Arriva at 8.30am was running late due to the weather. Luckily my manager was snowed in, so she at least understood why i was late.
  6. Dreams ( Media Molecule )

    The more i see of this game, the more interested and the more i want to play.
  7. Skyrim Special Edition (PS4/XB1/PC)

    Yeah, i finished the Dawnguard DLC. I was getting fed up with the random Vampire attacks on NPC's, luckily none were killed that were essential for quest giving. The Dawnguard DLC was decent, a lot of fun and a good setting. Last time i was on Skyrim, i also just finished the Mages College questline and was mostly through the Thieves Guild. I have a week off at Christmas, so between Christmas TV and stuff i'll be playing Skyrim (luckily, Sophie is working so i'll get some uninterrupted gaming before she gets home)

    Finished the main story to Assassin's Creed Origins. Full thoughts are in the Origins thread, but overall it was worth Ubi missing a year. It shows with vast improvements over previous iterations, especially combat and story.
  9. Assassin's Creed: Origins

    Bump Just finished the main story (and the vast majority of the side-quests/stuff to do etc). Quite pleased Ubisoft took a year off Assassin's Creed, it shows with this game that is for sure. Story was interesting. Might polish off the remaining side stuff, but otherwise i'm done for now.
  10. Destiny 2

    There are elements of D2 i prefer over similar elements of D1. PvP has it's moments, but needs sorting out to be as competitive as D1's is/was. I'm one for Crucible playlists, and the randomness of the modes is off-putting. The 4v4 is a good idea, however i think the 6v6 option should remain in place for those who want it. And have separate playlists for all the modes as before. The strikes are decent, however the raid needs improving. The Osiris add-on needs a new raid to freshen things up. PvP needs refreshing, strikes need refreshing. I've got to the routine of playing D2 for the daily/weekly stuff then putting it away until the following week.
  11. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Not a bad piece of nostalgia. Wait a year or two, then we'll probably have a PS3 load screen for PS4.
  12. Your GotY 2017

    Without a doubt, my Game of the Year is Horizon Zero Dawn. A game many (including myself) didn't have much hope for, considering Guerilla Games's last PS4 outing was Killzone Shadow Fall. Horizon blew the opinion away, i was amazed at just how good this game was when i played it. Normally, i start a game and leave it for a bit before picking it up and playing it through. Horizon was that one game i started and played right to the end without changing my game. And with the additional DLC in the form of The Frozen Wilds, which came out earlier this month. It's cemented this game as my Game of the Year for 2017. Other notable mentions this year include Sonic Mania Assassin's Creed Origins Breath of the Wild Snake Pass Little Nightmares Uncharted The Lost Legacy

    All working again now, thanks for the help @Ashley
  14. Playstation Plus Free Games

    If they offered 2 tiered PS+, it would appease many. 1 without the free game offerings, and one with. This months offerings for December is poor. Already have Darksiders II on the WiiU with the Humble Bundle deal, and i have zero interest in Kung Fu Panda. And i wish they'd just stop giving away that "bonus title" That's You!!!. If people don't have it by now, they don't want it.
  15. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Having a bit of trouble getting the 2 step verification working, well i say working. It worked ok on my old phone, but i got a new one and i can't set it up on there. The email isn't being received for me to do this. Any help much appreciated.
