  1. 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;
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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)
  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. 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. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!

  11. Star Wars Battlefront 3

    Release Date: 17th of November. First trailer will be revealed later today Experience the full reveal on April 17, 2015 10:30 AM PT Here's a screenshot: I loved both Battlefront 1 and 2 so can't wait for this. Just hope EA don't do anything stupid.
  12. Microsoft Scorpio

    Rumours seem to suggest Microsoft will make some sort of announcement about this this week. I shan't hold my breath but it'll certainly be interesting if they do. They completely **** up with the Xbox One, lessons learnt? Will they manage to actually get the message on point after the disastrous mudding last year at E3? Will be obscenely priced? Etc etc.
  13. Fallout 4

    http://fallout.bethsoft.com/
  14. 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...?
  15. Xbox gamer tags

    Anyone on here that plays COD, battlefield, fifa, the division or any ubisoft games reply with you gamer tag. Most of my mates are hardly on these days.
  16. 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?
  17. Xbox One

    Saints Row 4, Alan Wake 2, and a new COD game are also apparently already under development for Microsofts next Xbox. I guess it will be pretty much be a given that many here will buy it on release, and as much as I don't think I'll get one anywhere near it's release date (I have always been late to the party with Microsofts consoles I guess - didn't own an Xbox and only bought an old 2nd hand 360 on the cheap a good few years after release), I am really curious to see exactly what this will have under it's hood. The recent BF3 Beta has demonstrated very well that the latest in PC graphics can do considerably more than the latest home consoles, as the tech in those is getting on a bit now, after all. What features do you think we can expect? Blu-Ray drive? Built-in 1tb+ harddrive? Built-in motion control? MIND CONTROL?? 4D aka. SMELL-O-VISION???
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Battlefield 4

    Anyone played the beta? Got it downloading now, hope it lives up to the hype!
  24. 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?
  25. PES 16
