  1. So now we've all had time to open our presents what new games did we get? I got Assassins Creed Origins. Only played about 30 mins so far seems pretty good.
  2. A Way Out

    Latest trailer looks good and its a great idea to only need 1 copy to play with a friend online.
  3. Death Stranding

    Upcoming 'intuitive open world' game from Kojima Productions. Possible release date of Q4 2018, but nothing confirmed yet. It's also unclear what the gameplay will be like - is it some sort of action RPG, survival horror, or mishmash? I'm sure for a lot of people it won't really matter, and it's probably just easiest to call it a 'Kojima' game. There's quite a history behind the development already - this colab between Kojima, Norman Reedus and Guilermo Del Toro stems from the fallout between Kojima and Konami, and that pretty incredible tech demo called P.T., aka Silent Hills. For anyone curious, the unusual name is a reference to the phenomenon of whales beaching themselves. Given the content of the footage below, it's probably safe to assume that the game deals with the end of the world as we know it - humanity beaching itself. Sounds very Kojima. It also uses Guerrillas Decima engine, which was also used in Horizon Zero Dawn, so will look and feel great. Extended 'trailer' from yesterday's games awards I think the only phrase that does that justice is 'From the mind of Hideo Kojima'
  4. Ashes Cricket

    Anyone got or thinking of getting the newly released Ashes Cricket game? Keen to know if it's worth the investment or if it's a steaming pile of dog turd.
  5. Spiderman

    The latest trailer looks insane!
  6. COD WW2

    Ive not been a call of duty player in quite some time, since it went jet pack crazy. However it seems theyre giving ww2 another shout, anyone reckon itll be worth buying?
  7. Fortnite

    Surprised this doesn't have a topic yet. I downloaded it a week or so ago, and have only had time to play on a couple of occasions, but it seems really good fun. It's FREE on PS Store, it's in open BETA for a year or so - but it works very well. It's like PUBG (Player Unknowns Battle Grounds) - you and 100 other people get dumped into a map (you jump out of a bus held up by a balloon somewhere along it's journey) into a large, open map with small towns, forests, lakes etc. It's all contained on a large island. You get dumped with nothing but a pick axe which you use to destroy the environment which gives you resources (metal, wood & brick). You also find weapons (different colours = different level items) and ammo, ranging from pistols, to DMR's, sub-machine guns & assault rifles and rifles. With the resources, you can build fortifications quickly - so if there is a building you know someone is in, you could build a ramp up the house and go in from the roof. The name of the game is to be the last player/team alive. The thing that stops camping is a big storm which encroaches the island in a big circle. If you don't stay WITHIN the circle, you lose health and eventually die. The circle gets smaller and smaller, which pushes the players together and forces conflict. The storm initially doesn't move, and then moves intermittently which gives you fair time to gather weapons, harvest resources and make plans. It's cartoony in style, you can jump about 6ft, the weapons have RNG (random number generator) accuracy (meaning there is spread to your bullets, making distant targets hard to hit apart from rifles), but it's fun as hell with a couple of you playing. Should you die, you can quit the game quickly and just start a new game, so you don't have to wait around. That said, generally speaking if you get shot and lose your health, you get "knocked out" which means you can potentially crawl to safety and get revived. You have to shoot knocked out players to kill them permanently. Lots of videos about it on Youtube - but it's FREE and you should definitely download it and have a few games with people you play with. Because it's arcadey, you don't have to be a pro at shooting games. Random video for your pleasure;
  8. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (2017)

    Anyone playing the Beta? Despite its flaws, I loved the first game (2015). It did not have a huge amount of content on launch but I really liked the casual arcade feel of the game. A lot of the early balance issues and grenade spam were fixed and I had a blast. Supremacy on Endor was probably the best map I've played in a multiplayer console shooter. The best thing in the beta is the space combat. I think it's good enough to carry the game and the closest we will get to a dogfighting multiplayer game on console. I didn't care much for the infantry fighting. There is a huge amount of grenade spam, little choice in weapons available and once defenders figure out that turrets are OP it will become a very frustrating experience. I also am experiencing frame rate drops during hectic action. The most egregious aspect is the new lootbox system. It's blatantly pay2win with some legendarys offering huge bonuses (40% extra base health on starfighters being the most obvious example) I suspect they will leave this in until month or two after launch then nerf the hell out of it. They did a similar thing with the preorder bonus (Han Solo's pistol) in the first game. This is the main reason I wont be buying at launch.
  9. NASCAR Heat Evolution 2

    Yeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaw It scores about 70-80% depending upon the review site but I got it as soon as it was downloadable off PSN ( £39.99 ). Been playing for a couple of days now, loving it. Features the trucks, Xfinity and of course the Cup series. Won't do a review but google is your friend. Very enjoyable indeed. I don't buy many games but I'm thoroughly happy with this one especially career mode. It came out on Thursday I think, physical copies only by import at this moment but as said is available on PSN not sure when Euro release is. I'm giving it an 8/10. Bonus, that you get to smash Danica's rear end in, if you want. Ooooh la la British redneck, signing off.
  10. Everybody's Golf

    Playstation 4 exclusive arcade golf game, which also features fishing, golf carts, and the simple but hugely effective use of the golf courses acting as open world hubs for online play. It's the 6th mainline game in the series, all of which bar the first game have been developed by Clap Hanz - who have only ever developed either Everybody's Golf or Tennis games. In the 20 years since the first game they've refined the game play to a point which is now at it's absolute pinnacle. It's incredibly easy to pick up and play, but, like the best games, demands time to master. For anyone looking to pick it up, it does require a kinda tenuous intro, and it's all very twee, but if you try to put that to one side it's a blast. I haven't played too much so far, but there does appear to be lots of locked content - such as courses that must be unlocked before you can play them online. The character creation tool is neet, and although the graphics are no where near top drawer on the platform they work as well as they need to. It's so not a full price release and can be picked up for £25 now having been released in the US yesterday, Europe today, and Japan tomorrow - although I saw lots of Japanese players online earlier. I'd definitely recommend it. The devs have a track record of constantly updating the game, and with this one having such an online presence, that's sure to continue. In short, it'll be great fun on the coach or online - and there are competitive and team modes.
  11. Sonic Mania

    Can't wait to play Sonic Mania, the only game I've been excited about since Metal Gear Solid 5.
  12. PES 18

    Anyone playing the PES 2018 online beta? First time playing PES, usually a FIFA player and i'm liking it . The thing that has drawn me to PES this year is the fact that they are introducing ranked 2v2 (about time!), and ranked 3v3. You can create clans and stuff so that should be cool. I feel like the physics are better in FIFA, it's really hard to judge the flight of the ball when it's in the air. But the passing is much better on PES and feels less "assisted". Defending i'm uncertain about, it seems there's a bit of an issue with getting a player like Neymar for example, and just running through everyone. A lot of goals are scored this way. Dunno if it's just FIFA noobs like myself not knowing what they are doing. There is an element of "randomness" to PES which i'm not sure if I like. Will definitely be buying this year and giving it a go instead of FIFA.
  13. PS4 must play list

    What is VTs must play PS4 list I wonder? Obviously there's the exclusives but some will be more essential than others.
  14. Couldn't find a thread for this so thought I'd start one. Fancied a bit of a nostalgia trip and this popped it's head up about the right time. Went round 4 shops today to pick it up and all sold out, even the online retailers appear to have sold out. Did they massively underestimate sales for this, produce limited stock or has it just sold that well? Either way I'm sure it'll be just as good as it was 20(has it really been that long) years ago.
  15. Micro Machines World Series

    Please please let this be good. It was one of my absolute fav games as a kid and is one of the types of games that PS4 just does not have. 6/10 and above and they can have all my money. Out at the end of this month!
  16. FIFA 18

    Announcement teaser trailer Most wanted features? I played a bit of the journey on my brothers PS4, quite impressed. An expanded version of that, with a branching storyline, would be good.
  17. Gran Turismo Sport

    OMG, it looks beautiful. I know they always look good in this series, but 4k wonderfulness is probably enough for me to get involved.
  18. Paladins

    The F2P hero shooter, Paladins, has recently hit the PS4 as a beta and I have enjoyed playing it. It is very similar to Overwatch, for those used to that game, with a few subtle differences. The champions are more rounded, meaning that supports and tanks can output a fair amount of damage. There is no hero switching (rather there are moba-esque upgrades you can level up to counter certain set ups). Ultimates are far less powerful meaning the inevitable team wipes you get in Overwatch are rarely seen. It's obviously less polished & not as well voice acted but it's a decent game in its own right. So far it's not pay2win. All the champions can be unlocked with the founders pack (around £10-15) and the loadout cards can be bought with minimal grinding (I have been able to get the cards I want for any hero by about level 4). Aside from the founders pack, I can't see any reason to spend money in the game as the cosmetics are very basic at the moment. The only incentive may be to purchase xp boosts to decrease the time it takes to get into competitive play (at the moment it will probably take 20-30 hours to qualify)
  19. WipEout Omega

    Can't wait for this!
  20. NieR: Automata

    Action RPG-er from PlatinumGames & Square Enix released 10/03/17 on PS4 and 17/03/17 on Windows. Rather incredibly this is the fifth game in the Drakengard series - one that even the most seasoned JRPG fans would be forgiven for having passed them by. 2010's NieR is a spin off of the parent series, and this the sequel to that - although is only a very loose sequel, so knowledge of the first is not required (indeed, the storyline of this is set after a specific ending you could obtain in NieR) It's mostly not required, as you can probably guess, as a result of the story being completely bonkers - this is a game from the parent companies of Bayonetta and Final Fantasy, lest we forget. It's so bonkers I find the premise pretty rivetting, so in short; there is a war raging on Earth between the last of humanity and the robot army of an invading unknown alien race. It's too dangerous for Humanity to live on Earth, so they live on the moon, and have their own robot army fighting their battles on the planet's surface. This is where the player comes in - you take control of one of three androids whom the story appears to follow. It has reviewed very well. Even in the current climate (and 2017 is turning in to something of a classic year already) it's being touted as a potential GOTY. Platinum appear to have nailed the gameplay with this one, and anyone who has played any of their best games will know that when they get it right, they get it really right. And although NieR was derided for being boring in gameplay terms, it's story, characters, and tone were celebrated - and SE have ensured those parts have been retained here. There's a demo, it's good, play it if you want. At the time of writing I would rather play this over Yakuza 0, Nioh, Horizon, Danganronpa Reload or Mass Effect - and that's just the stuff on my radar, for PS4, for release up to the end of this month. Phew.
  21. Horizon Zero Dawn

    PS4 exclusive from Killzone devs Guerrilla Games, out next week and reviewing very well. Post apocalyptic action role player, with third person combat involving spears, bow and arrows, harpoon guns, stealth, and an open world. The biggest draw here is probably the fancy pants looking enemies - animals and dinosaurs in robot form referred to simply as 'Machines' rule the world, the reason for which is examined in the story. Of which is apparently one of the weaker aspects of the game. The open world itself and combat hold up very well it seems, and it's pretty stunning to look at. There's a few elements taken from other games - a Batman style 'focus' allows you to survey the area and locate Machine weak points, there's also the Ubisoft approach to the open world in so far as bits and bobs are dotted all over to investigate, and you can climb giant giraffe-like machines instead of radio towers to unlock sections of the map. I was always rather impressed by the teasers we've seen over the years, looks like it might actually live up to the expectation.
  22. Nioh

    Anyone picking up Nioh? Reviews are pretty great so I think I'll trade in Resi 7 for it on Wednesday.
  23. Playstation VR

    Picked up a PSVR tonight. Had a couple of hours on it. Mainly played playroom vr and a couple of the demos on the disc which comes with the headset. Have to admit is better than I thought it would be. We're playing on a PS4 Pro which might help? Downloaded lots of demos to try out over the weekend. Anyone else got one? I've an couple of guys on here with one. Any recommendations for games?
  24. 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
  25. Last of Us Part 2

    I kind of wish they had left this story and did something else with the world, but I'm sure this'll be great regardless. The inevitable clash between Ellie and Joel should be worth it at the very least.
