I'm loving it. The Underpants Gnomes battle is one of the most ludicrous things ever in gaming. Canada is a nice touch too.

It is very well done with lots of little easter eggs. The PS3 version has a few glitches, but nothing that bad.

Dead Space is amazing, Dead Space 2 & 3 much less so. The series has very high production values and great set pieces so its a shame it descended into just another cover shooter

I obtained it.
Played it. I've lost hours without realising it.
Liking it. 7/10

You can pick it up digital download only for 20quid.
If you like completely finishing things then its worth it. I can't get it to connect to ubi servers for obvious reasons so there's a few elements I can't talk for.

GTA5 is just cashing in.

next gen gaming cannot be released on ps3 and xb360.

It's what ruined watchdogs.

Make in look amazing
Strip it back to work on old gen consoles
Add back as any effects as they can until release date.

I agree. Perhaps why I am quite excited about PC/nextgen-only releases like Project CARS or Elite: Dangerous or Star Citizen (playing the Arena Commander module at the moment. A long way to go but it's looking awesome already)

Project cars is a bit spicey, I'm not much a racer any more but in the hype video fro DriveCLub they mention paying attention to how the light behaves through a leaf....
Thats a leaf that will be driven past at 90mph
and they are worried about how light will be seen,

Xbox One owners are complaining that a new TV advert is switching their consoles on without their permission.

The ad - featuring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul - has the actor say "Xbox On" near its start.

The instruction appears to trigger the machine's Kinect voice/motion sensor, activating the console.

The advert is lame anyway and I'm still not sure why anyone would want an XBlox  Bad Teeth

I have just finished playing the rebooted Tomb Raider. It is alright, paced well, not entirely shooting based, but it isn't incredible by a long shot. A handful of puzzles, but they're not too puzzling.

The colour pallete was all a bit muted though; a bit too much wood and rock. Whilst Uncharted clearly has its roots in the original Tomb Raider series, it is now a hard act to follow, graphically; plus the characters are more memorable in that series. Compared to the original TR game though, the reboot is far, far better. At least she runs forwards in a straight line these days.

Obtained it yesterday

yes its very polished
batman like linked combat moves
there is depth to the gameplay
its more like Witcher 2 than Skyrim ( A LOT like witcher 2)
there's some carbon copy AssCreed animation
voice acting is good
its respectful of the lore

only flaw is the geometry complexity make character movement fail. Not game breaking but stops it being perfect.

Civilisation 3-5 on humble bundle  Two Thumbs

Best value for money you'll ever find

I've just bought the lot for $15 - I only needed the last DLC for V.

I've decided to give it another good go.

Do you find yourself typing a sign, then backspacing and adding in a $? Is this something you used to do a lot when you moved and got used to? Or do you do this every time? Just wondering Smiley

I'm confused.  Do you mean was it easy to remember to type a '$' instead of a ''?  Yes it is, especially due to my keyboard not having a '' key.

Given up on Civ V and started playing IV again.  So much better.

Don't listen to the EA/Bioware haters. Dragon Age Inquisition is a wonderful game in most ways and a very solid candidate for game of the decade. Bioware should be proud of this return to form. PC crew will need a 360 controller and a solid rig for maximum enjoyment.

Hmm, game of the decade...

Shadow of mordor, FC4 are pretty solid,

I played the Kingdom Come Deliverance Alpha build - that game is going to be special
Witcher 3 incoming,

GTAV on PC in the spring.

Enjoyed Shadow of Mordor immensely at first but it didn't hold my attention

Gonna hold off on Far Cry 4 Far Cry 3.5 until it comes down in price. Looks fun though. Looking forward to both Witcher 3 and GTA V immensely. Played through GTA V on 360 to 100% and it was fantastic.

Granted, 'game of the decade' might be an exaggeration, but it is pretty awesome.

Bought the game whilst back in Bris over the holiday so tonight is my first chance to have a tinker.

It's all gonna be tinkering and set-up for a couple of weeks though until my Thrustmaster HOTAS turns up. (These things are like gold dust atm, Amazon selling out as soon as they announce a new stock-in date)

I'm also building myself an EDtracker to play with it, DIY head movement view tracker for about 10-15 worth of parts... www.edtracker.org.uk

Voice Attack with the Elite voice pack so I can talk to my ship also means I am now going FULL GEEK.

Will repost when I know what my in-game name is gonna be...

That is  Love

but....... I really didn't get on with 5760x1080 when I had it set up. Great for games but really annoying for work (windows doesn't know it's multiple monitors so you have to constantly resize windows and nothing snaps etc.)

Obviously in an ideal world I would have a super pimp gaming set up and a separate work PC. That isn't gonna happen though.

Now on a nice 1440p monitor and it's the best of both worlds for me.

I am using a Saitek F.L.Y.5 with Elite: Dangerous and (after considerable tinkering) it works really well. Got a separate throttle and you can map all the buttons. Was about 35 from memory.

Man it is a fucking time sponge of a game. Love it.

I am addicted to Elite Dangerous!

First proper session last night, I think likewise.  Haven't been that immersed in a game for ages, went to bed and when trying to sleep was just flying through space.

I haven't even had my thrustmaster HOTAS delivered yet, just playing on a Xbox gamepad.  I really recommend Voice Attack with the Elite voice pack, I barely even touch the keyboard.  Being able to speak to your ship "Full power to weapons", "Deploy landing gear" etc is actually amazing.

Parts for my EDtracker arrived today, can't wait to build that and get real life headlook in game.

I'm probably gonna stay in solo until my flight stick arrives, but feel free to add:  Whagwan
