  1. Divinity: Original Sin

    I'm just buying this in the Steam sale. Surprised there wasn't a thread already. Any tips?
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. FIFA18

    So anyone got the new FIFA? Have to say, it's very much improved! Nothing revolutionary has changed, but it feels like older FIFA's.. they've kinda brought the arcady-ness back to it which also brings back a lot of fun. I'm a big fan of it so far.
  5. 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.
  6. Destiny 2

    Gaming crack is out on Wednesday. Who's getting it? My group wasn't getting it originally, but we all slowly folded. For the Puppies!
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.

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.

  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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/
  17. Hadn't heard of this game until yesterday when a friend mentioned it. It's got a few awards and looks amazing from what I've researched. Has anyone played it? Is it worth a look?
  18. Battleborn

    Put in a few hours on this. It's a bit chaotic (no surprise there with console players on a moba) but in all I think it could be a gem of a game. Anyone ne else pull the open beta down on ps4 early?
  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. 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.

  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Far Cry Primal

    Will anyone have goosey gander at this? No guns or tech here just spears and stones and lots of wooly mammoths.
  25. Out Of The Park Baseball 2016

    I've been looking at OOTP for a while but as I know next to nothing about baseball the £29.99 price tag put me off. I have though just picked it up on Steam at 75% off. Anyone had any experience with this?
