  1. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst (June 9th)

    Just pre-bought it based on the Guardian review (3/5) - looks likely it'll be another flawed gem but the gem I want.
  2. XCOM 2 (PS4/XB1)

    Definitely might consider it, loved the previous one with an Xbox controller and my faithful ol' laptop certainly can't handle it.
  3. Horizon: Zero Dawn

    I'm kinda liking game delays right now, there seems to be a constant stream of stuff I want but can't keep up with.
  4. Playstation Plus Free Games

    Written & directed by Spike Lee. I hear it's hysterically bad.
  5. good stuff thread.

    Just because I need to express this somewhere: I've been in what feels like fairly serious emotional pain over the past few days BUT this is a good thing. I've been in therapy for a few months now trying to unlock myself and I believe this is progress. I've been effectively dead inside FOR YEARS, so although this hurts it feels like something PRODUCTIVE for once.
  6. MadDog has passed away

    I just noticed this thread, all my thoughts to his friends & loved ones obviously. I'm glad we were able to say goodbye to him, he will be missed.
  7. Overwatch

    This is definitely Team Fortress 3 in all the best ways possible. Rather than "maining" anyone it's actually been fun experimenting with all the characters - even ones that seem underpowered at first can be regular game-changers once you understand them. There's a lot I love about it, seriously thinking getting the pricier digital version at launch just so it's always there, ready to go.
  8. Overwatch

    Man I'm eager to get a taste of this. Wish I wasn't working so much during the open Beta period.
  9. New Dawn of War game

    It is the 41st Millennium. The Imperium of Man, ruled by the God Emperor who's psychic energy guides ships through the daemon infested Warp, is in a constant state of war across the galaxy. At the forefront are the Space Marines, genetically modified warriors of unshakable loyalty and super human strength. Alongside them the Imperial Guard, ordinary men and woman drafted to the deadly front lines. Against them stand many foes: The Eldar, dark and mysterious aliens in the twilight of their empires. The Orks, vicious blood-thirsty creatures who thrive on violence. Above all else stands the forces of Chaos, the alliance of demonic gods and traitorous Space Marines who seek to escape the Warp and taint the very fabric of reality. It is the 41st Millennium and there is only war.
  10. Star Fox Zero

    I'll be interested to hear what you guys think, even the good reviews don't make it sound like something I want/need to jump at. Seems likes I could just replay Lylat Wars again?
  11. Hellblade

    New trailer posted quietly during GDC with a slightly unnecessary sub title, cut from a scene from the game. They've been promising some killer emo-capture tech and it certainly looks promising on that basis.
  12. Tom Clancy's The Division

    Finally decided to go in on this after sifting through reviews. I hear the complaints about it's repetitive nature & story but looking forward to the loot game & atmosphere. Interested to see how/what Ubisoft has put together as much as anything.
  13. Tom Clancy's The Division

    I was genuinely surprised as to why I like this so much - then I realized that someone finally made a decent Freedom Fighters sequel as an MMO. Will definitely wait for reviews & expansion/cost plans but I'm strangely up on it? As far as dour-apocalypse games go this is probably going to be one of the better ones.
  14. bad stuff thread.

    Don't even know how to respond to that. You've been a top man on here all through the years. We're all going to be poorer without you.
  15. GameTrailers Shutting Down

    Sad to hear, didn't realize their fortunes had fell so hard. Games journalism is unrecognizable from 10 or even 5 years ago.
  16. Independence Day Resurgence

    I wasn't looking forward to this but this looks exactly like the sort of dumb spectacle I actually want to see in a cinema. (Official Youtube, for convenience) Looks like Xcom: The Movie.
  17. Splatoon

    That's such goddamn bullshit I swear to christ. You'll pry my 12" Hawaiian from my cold dead feelers.
  18. Your 2015 Gaming Diary

    Papers Please is an more psychologically bruising experience then I was prepared for.
  19. bad stuff thread.

    Oh boy. Somebody found a gas leak yesterday morning and the whole building hasn't had heating or hot water since. The utility guys had 3 vans on the case immediately but they've basically got to put fresh pipes in because the existing ones are rotten. They've been at it all day yesterday and today but we'll be lucky to have hot water back before end of tomorrow. I want a shower. >.<
  20. Ni No Kuni II (PS4)

    Sometimes I think about playing a Final Fantasy game but then I remember I could spend the same time playing a good JRPG like this.
  21. Xenoblade Chronicles X (4th Dec)

    Think I'm going to invest in the WiiU side of things post new year, definitely this & MArio Maker. Start 2016 off right.
  22. FAST:Racing Neo

  23. bad stuff thread.

    My brother's dog, a big, lovely, rather shy German Shepard-mutt no more than a year old, whose company I enjoyed very much for a week this summer, has apparently been shot dead by some arsehole while they were out walking him. I was looking forward to spending Christmas with him while my brother was out of town, but I guess that's that. It's rather ruined my evening.
  24. What Have You Bought?

    I've been meaning to rewatch the ol' LoK. The first two Books are cool but it gets so fucking good in Books 3 & 4 I swear to fucking god. Saints Row 4 & Assassins Creed: Love In The Time of Scurvy for £22 total from PSN. Not too shabby.
