  1. 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...?
  2. Release date of 4th November, 2 week beta access if pre purchased from authorised retailers. FM Touch is available as a standalone and also included with the full game. There is a loyalty reward for pre purchasing through Steam, up to 20% discount for owning all of FM13-16 or 5% for each one. I'm trying not to buy this year, but I know I'll cave at some point and end up smashing it for months.

  3. 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.
  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. Motorsport Manager

    I've been playing Motorsport Manager on my Ipad for ages, I love it. They have now announced that the game, all improved, will be coming to PC, Mac and so on. I am genuinely excited for this! http://www.motorsportmanager.com/
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. PC Gaming

    I've searche'd for a topic but doesn't appear to be one. Closest thing is the Steam thread. This is for PC gamers to share tags add friends on Steam, Origin and other gaming clients and maybe play games online together and discuss general PC components etc. I will list my PC spec when I am at the machine tomorrow evening. Currently playing shadow of Mordor and Fifa 15. Dying light will be my next purchase if anyone fancies co op. I have other games too like war hammer, sanctum 2 and battlefield 4 if anyone fancies a game.
  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. Football Manager 2016

    Out 13th November no news on FM16 mobile or FM16 touch realise date tbc http://www.footballmanager.com/ Features Customise your own touchline manager character & see them and other managers on the touchline Go head-to-head with mates in Fantasy Draft mode Replace an existing team with one of your own. Choose a name, colours & add yourself with Create-a-Club mode Big changes and improvements to transfer, contract, player & contract screens (and many more)
  11. World of Warcraft

    Another games thread from moi... Anyone else play this game? (watch this if you havent got a clue what im talking about) Myself and D1 are on there. I did think Resi 4 was a shoe in for my game of 2005. Now im not so sure. This thing is epic! edit: 19th October 2007 Just because im a nice guy, some info: If you are thinking of signing up, make a Horde character on Tarren Mill server and you will get some help from plenty of Villa Fans. World of Warcraft is a class based game, and what class you pick will have a massive impact on your overall experience. I found the best thing to do when deciding a class is to have a look at this link before you take the plunge. There are also lots of quests to do in World of Warcraft. If you get stuck on a quest, visit the mighty Wowhead.com People who play WoW and post on VT. Forum name and in game character name. Some people have more than one character. Tarren Mill Server (PvP) Horde Limpid = Limpid, Limped, Limpt The_Rev = Nayson, Eau (taking a break at the moment) ED = Evildan, Ewiddan, Lolmangle Designer1 = Siongest, Sionguest Risso = Rissok Trl = Trl, Renew, Handful Red_5 = Samisdead Irishjay = Rishj Juju = Samosa, Merkin, Vilajuju Craigyh_74 = Tarq, Tarqy Ill edit more of this later, adding more useful links and the names and servers of the anti social bastards who didnt pick Horde on Tarren Mill.
  12. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Even more exciting than Mass Effect 3 (IMO), the next Elder Scrolls is due out next November. I'm a huge fan of Bethesda games and this should be something pretty special. I may book the 11th November 2011 onwards off work now!
  13. Fallout 4

    http://fallout.bethsoft.com/
  14. 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
  15. 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'.
  16. 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.
  17. Star Citizen

    After the mile wide and inch deep experience that was No Mans Sky, the next project that I am getting unreasonably excited about is Star Citizen. The ambition for this game is HUGE, and the ability of the comparatively small team to deliver against has to be a concern, however if they can pull it off the game looks like it could be a bit epic. Unlike No Mans Sky whilst there are procedural planets they are doing story driven stuff inside it which sounds more like how something like how Red Dead Redemption worked. It relies on multiplayer and there will be PVP, mining and a a bunch of ships with different flying styles and a bunch of vehicles to use when you land on a planet. I have a number of concerns with the scope being so huge, all the delays that have already been announced and how they are looking at monetising it (it looks very expensive as they have it at the moment) but if it is good as I hope then take my money.
  18. Sea of Thieves

    Upcoming pirate themed multiplayer from Rare, on Windows and XBONE. Could be a return to form for them, after the Kinect stuff. Considering I'll probably never play it, unless it comes to PS4 (doubtful), I'm very curious about how it turns out. There's an insightful interview here which is worth a read, even if you're not interested in the concept of the game, then there's some insight in to the workings of the modern day Rare. I recall some discussion about a proper pirate game on here some time ago, and if anyone still has a hankering for one, well, I don't think you could do worse than anticipate this. In essence, you team up with 3 others and control a galleon. You'll have to do jobs, such as raise anchor, then have a look out, raise sails, steer, etc. but the suggestion is there isn't any hand holding. You need to communicate to get things done, and that goes for simply sailing the seas, to combat, to exploring islands for plunder and such. The linked intereview makes reference to a 'post No Man's Sky world' wherein the consumer is now more wary of dev's promises. Rare have a proven track record of course, so I'm hoping the myriad features 'promised' are indeed in the final game. There's also an interesting story about when Phil Spencer and some other MS bods played a very early version of the game at E3 (a video of which is not available to the public), in which they played the game in the opposite way Rare were hoping - basically the 4 players teamed up to get some treasure and get it back to the docks to sell, but on the route home, they dump one of their mates over the side of the ship so as to split the booty between less of them Rare hope most people will work together and only do battle with other ships... It's not procedurally generated, but the question has been asked of what you actually do in the game. At the moment, there doesn't seem to be much of an answer, although apparently there will be quests and a story line. They mention 'emergent gameplay' in the linked interview a few times, which the cynical side of me means you are expected to make up things as you go yourself...but at least the gameplay should be fun, at least in the short term. No release date yet, expected sometime next year.
  19. 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.

  21. Battlefield 4

    Anyone played the beta? Got it downloading now, hope it lives up to the hype!
  22. 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?
  23. Unable to access websites

    Was working fine earlier, but as of about an hour ago I seem unable to access almost any website. Bizarrely, VT is the only website that is working. I've attached a few pictures of the message both Firefox and Chrome is throwing up. I'm connected to the internet, it's working fine on the other laptop and phones in the house. Skype and Steam also seem to connect fine - as well as VT. I've tried the "Try these repairs as administrator" and it says it fixes is, but it doesn't seem to change anything. I don't use Firefox as a browser, I just tried to access a random website on there to see if it was just a Chrome issue. So I'm confused as it can't be an internet issue, but neither is it exclusive to the only browser I use. Any ideas? Not being able to use the net is a bit annoying!
  24. Xcom 2

    Anyone else looking forward to this? Though it's been push back till feb 2016 I'm excited for it. Currently playing the first with dlc on my Mac (bought that couple weeks ago) but I did finish it on the 360.
  25. PES 16
