  1. Mafia 3

    So who's picked this up then? I got it yesterday on PS4 and stuck it on last night. Typical first day patch meant I couldn't play for 90 mins cuz VM seems to be throttling my connection during the evening but when it eventually installed first impressions are good. Similar in many ways to GTA but not as "cartoony". Only played for about an hour. Did the first few missions, fed a guy to a gator. Hoping to give it a proper go over the weekend.
  2. Yakuza 0

    NA/EU Playstation 4 exclusive out on 24th Jan, getting pretty excellent reviews at the moment. It's a prequel to the series which debuted on PS2 way back when. The main line games have an on going storyline which is decent, this being a prequel set in the 80's means there is no presumption that you know the characters before hand. Succesful back in JP, not so much in the West. The best way to sum it up would be a mash up between a small scale GTA (without cars, usually) and Shenmue. The combat does include guns, but mostly you'll be fighting hand to hand, picking up what ever you can get your hands on to smash your foe over the head with. Think bins, cones, shop signs, etc... One of the reasons the series may have some measure of infamy is it's attention to detail in the recreation of it's fictional verions of Tokyo and Osaka. This is where the Shemue comparison comes in. There are corner shops, bars, arcades (it's a Sega game, this one is set in the 80s, you can play them), bowling alleys, RC car racing, and as serious as the main story can be, the massive amount of side quests are varied massively, from the sublime to the ridiculous - in the best possible way. It also depicts 'Hostess Bars' in detail, with (I think) Yakuza 3 being heavily cut in the west to remove certain elements. Yakuza 0 is left untouched, though - in fact there isn't even an English dub, just subs. On the down side this is a PS3 port (which was unavailable in the west) and they've never been the prettiest of games as it is - and it seems as though it shows here. Textures are shoddy, and some animations aren't very clever, but it appears to be far from unplayable. Here is a shitty trailer from E3, if you're curious I would suggest looking at some gameplay vids or something
  3. Playstation 4

    As there is already a topic for 'Xbox 720', and has been for some time, I felt it only fair to make one for the 'PS4' aswell. Well, kind of. There is even less info on this than there is for the new Xbox. Well I say even less, there's practically nothing. However, the recent annoucement of The Last of Us release date has put the rumour mill into overdrive. It was originally assumed that The Last of Us would be given a pre-xmas 2013 slot to be Sony's big money grabber for the period, as nothing else major is expected for then. But with the (much earlier than anticipated) release of The Last of Us being Q2 2013, certain corners of the internet sprang to the conclusion that the PS4 would be released Xmas 2013, as the new Xbox is expected to. The latest rumour, though, is that it won't be until after that - much later possibly, as far as Q3 2014. Which begs the quesion, what does Sony have up it's sleave for next Christmas? Nothing at all? Unlikely. Maybe another essential bit of kit for your PS3 like Wonderbook or Move. It's also alledged to be codenamed 'Thebes'. I must admit that my preference, even before specs and anything else are announced, is for the new PS over the new Xbox, for the simple reason that I have owned all of Sony's consoles and prefer them over MS'.
  4. Overwatch

    Season 2 has started and there is a free trial this weekend for anyone interested. I would heartily recommend the game. With over 20 characters there are tons of ways to play and I think most people will find their niche. Those not accustomed to fps can play as healers or mobile tanks with Tesla cannons. There's not much you can't do!
  5. Rocket League

    That's right, guy - news at the last on the sequel to not just the best game of all time, but humanity's greatest achievement, the game known the world over simply as... 'Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars'. **** yes.
  6. Battlefield 1

    Surely we are very close to some info or a trailer now? Strong rumours about it being set in WW1 and a release date of Q3 2016. If true wont the weaponry be limited? Anybody got any other info/rumours? This will be a release day purchase for me.
  7. Mass Effect: Andromeda

    + Bioware blog mentioning next ME Will be interesting to see what direction they head in with the series next. A game set in a time period prior to ME, during the First Contact Wars or Rachni Wars, perhaps? The assertion that the founders quit due to EA is curious, could the next games be co-op heavy (blergh!) ? It's all a very long way off yet though. Plus the new IP. They've done sci-fi, they've done Tolkein-esque fantasy, they've done licenesed stuff with Star Wars, they've done dungeon crawlers and an MMO. Plus some anceint chinese set RPG or something (Jade Empire). Where next? Next gen, probably. Maybe they could make an actual properly good Pirate game, which hasn't ever been done, has it...?
  8. Persona 5

    Confirmed by Atlus, yeaahhhhhhhhhhh The bad news is, that's a PS3 release date in Japan, so I think it's reasonable to expect the US/EU release in Summer '15...which is soooooooo far away nuuuuhhhhhh. Ofc most of us will be well settled in to the next gen by then, but that's really no different to the PS2 release of P4 well in to the life of the PS3. Hopefully they will manage to get P6 out on PS4 before the next gen though? Heh. Other news is that is not the only Persona game on it's way. There's also Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth on 3DS which is a dungeon crawler featuring chars from P3 and P4, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold which is a sequel (and therefore a second sequel to P4) Persona 4 Arena and IF THAT WASNT ENOUGH, there is also Persona 4: Dancing All Night which is, yes, a dance/rhythm game for Vita. Awesommee~
  9. Trials

    I remember originally playing Trials or Trials 2 on miniclip.com back in the day, obviously since then the series has come on leaps and bounds but the premise is still the same. Downloading Trials Fusion now, looks really good IMO. Always fun games to play, anybody else getting it?
  10. No Man's Sky

    Thought there was a thread on this, couldn't find it though. Looks interesting, space exploration is for me at least, still a pretty exciting prospect in a game. The concern of 'what you actually do', and why you actually do it, is something most gamers are going to have to be convinced of before the game comes out though, I think. There's an interesting interview with the dev's at E3 here which is worth a read, one of the most interesting points I picked out was this Curious. They also use games like Minecraft and Terraria as examples of games where players just get on with playing, and the concerns of why, and the backstory to where they are, isn't important. I remain unconvinced, but am quite eager to have a go myself all the same.
  11. Fallout 4

    http://fallout.bethsoft.com/
  12. Diablo III

    Along with Guild Wars II, this is my most anticipated game of 2012. Over ten years in development, it's finally released on May 15th and I for one cannot bloody wait, and I foresee many hours being sunk into it. Official Site
  13. Red Dead Redemption 2

    I may be jumping the gun here a little bit, but I didn't want to horse around given the 'leak' that has occurred, so thought I'd whip up a new thread. Techradar are carrying an article which has been 'verified by their own independent source'. Shaky as that is, at the very least it provides a talking point. Here's the alledged leaked map, which originally came from a NeoGAF thread The bottom left of the map contains Tall Trees and Great Plains, areas both present in Redemption. It's suggested as well that the game is set before Redemption. The Great Plains in this map does not show a railroad in that area, which backs that up. The think yellow trail is the railroad. It's a great whacking area, and something akin to what you'd expect from the new game. There's an awful lot of water which is something we didn't really need to worry about in Redemption - cue canoe boats and paddle steamers perhaps? If they're of the era, I'm not particularly learned in the tech of the time, admittedly, but I think about Bayou's and in my minds eye I see those great huge paddle steamers. The areas seem quite diverse, there's Plains, Bayou/Marsh, Valley, Forest, Mountains...but then, if you wanted to make a fake map, that's what you would do, isn't it? The linked article also refers to the settlement of New Bordeaux - a fictional town based on New Orleans which is also set to appear in Mafia 3, developed by a Take 2 stablemate. I can't quite decide if that makes this more legit or less...think I'm wavering to the latter. Regardless, it has me very, very excited for what the actual game will bring, and I do like the idea of a game set during the 'wild west' rather than 'the death of the west'.
  14. Dark Souls III

    Release date: April 12th Figured I'd start a new thread for this as it's release is quickly approaching. I am so goddamn hyped for this game, and there have been a lot of videos emerging in the past few days showing off a fair bit of the early game (lots of spoilers though, so maybe don't watch them if you want to go in 100% blind). I will say though that after watching several of the videos my hype levels have gone through the roof. This game looks good.
  15. Witcher 3

    Got 10/10 on Gamespot & IGN. Reviewing very highly across the board. I've never played any of the games, don't know what they're about, don't know if I'd like them, but after reading the reviews, it almost certainly seems like there would be a good game there. Anyone getting it?
  16. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

    Anyone else going to be picking this up? From what i've seen/read it looks like it could be a GOTY contender. Overview here Should be getting it later today on PS4 and if it's as good as Human Revolution we could be in for a treat.

  18. Battlefield 4

    Anyone played the beta? Got it downloading now, hope it lives up to the hype!
  19. Doom

    I had downloaded the Beta & will give it a hammering when I get off work tonight, so will post up some impressions. This is for the PVP mode only not story. Anyone else downloaded the closed Beta?
  20. PES 16

  21. Minecraft

    http://www.minecraft.net Awesome!
  22. Valkyria Chronicles

    It's coming to PS4, and better still, a new game is coming to PS4 also, entitled Valkyria: Azure Revolution. Although the article I've read today refers to Chronicles as a remake, I'm not convinced, it may just be a port/remaster like the one that came to Steam years after the original on PS3. For the unitiated, Valkryia Chronicles is a turn based strategy/third person shooter set in something akin to an AU at the time of WWII, complete with weaponry of the period, plus some fantasy elements, whilst also being heavily anime stylised. You could say it was, and still is, rather unique. It was followed by VC2 and VC3 on PSP, although the latter was JP only. It was for me the most underrated game on PS3, along with SARPBC. A rare example that nailed every element of the game - the art style is fantastic, gameplay easy to get on with but with a learning curve steep enough to keep interest, brilliant soundtrack, and perhaps best of all, the characters and story were an absoloute delight. Well, maybe the wrong choice of words, as it deals head on with the tragedy of war, loss, and the holocaust, but it is all the better for it (plus it had a cameo of Vyse and Aika from Skies of Arcadia which pretty much cements it's position as top 10 of all time for me). TLDR; Buy them when they're on PSN.
  23. Shenmue

    He shall appear from a far eastern land across the sea, A young man who has yet to know his potential, This potential is a power that could either destroy him or realize his will, His courage shall determine his fate, The path he must traverse, fraught with adversity, I await whilst praying, For this destiny predetermined since ancient times, A pitch black night unfolds with the morning star as its only light, And thus the saga...begins... I don't mean to alarm anyone, but....Sega have re-trademarked the Shenmue name. Now of course this could just be a formality. It probably is, actually. However, it could also mean that a potential HD remake, or better yet, the announcement of Shenmue III, could be imminent. In this thread let's talk about why Shenmue is not merely the best video game of all time, but humanity's greatest work. With that in mind, I will utter those immortal words - "Who the hell do you think you're talking to? You fu'in' with me? Kiss off, twit!"
  24. The Division

    Release is fast approaching, whom amongst us played the beta(s) & if so what were your impressions? I've played the Alpah, Closed Beta & open Beta. My thoughts over those sessions still hasn't changed that much, game play is tight. Combat feels good & well balanced, best cover system in a game I've played. Interesting skill development when you dig round the inventory menus, some nice rpg elements & again if you look/dig into the menus your find crafting sections/more perks/Skill trees. what I didn't like was the environment all that much, I enjoy post incident settings but the world just felt so flat to me. Missions are repetative, the enemies & their types pretty forgettable...I'm not sure I can buy into bullet sponge gang members. I love damage output numbers eg Diablo/Destiny but shooting someone in a hoodie just didn't seem to feel right. The dark zone was a mess, no real rhyme or reason. I've said before but I experienced two game types: everyone (almost) works together vs the PVE environment & you will have a player(s) camping extraction...the match turns into a revenge fest. the majority of people just go rouge, the ensuing carnage turns into a revenge fest again & isn't that enjoyable to even be envolved in....then you have the Campers at extraction still. If Destiny was light on content/repetitive while even running all three character I'm already having serious reservations about the game beyond the story. I'm hoping at release we see what the end game is here as if there's not much past story mode I'll probably miss this one.
  25. Ratchet & Clank

    Dared I say, the new Ratchet and Clank game/movie tie-in/remake/whatever you want to call it looks terrifically good and I desperately want to play it.
