Got to love runic games for those two. Bloody marvellous. Also how do's any one else here rate dishonoured so far I've put it at a 4/5 star due to a few odd glitches but love the play style and story arc.

As much as I am looking forward more to Saints Row 4, the trailers for GTA5 are looking rather good. Ill most likely have both clocked when the time comes.



Anyone played Dead Island Riptide yet? I thought it was DLC, but apparently its a new game and I rather liked the first one. Just wanted to know if anyone had an opinion on it.

I got Dead Island on release day, but Riptide's kinda crept up on me during a time where I'm generally skint. Games have been getting pretty cheap fairly quickly lately so I'll probably pounce when it's around the £20/25 mark.
Heard nothing about it yet though. Dead Island got fairly bad reviews but I loved it, so I'm not too fussed about hearing anything for it :lol:

Yeah I loved it too. I think alot of people criticised it because it was too much like other zombie games, but I rather liked the fact that guns are few and ammunition for said guns are even fewer. Its melee combat idea I fucking loved. Beautifully beautifully violent. Ill get it when I can chop in a few games for it. Still playing Saints Row 2 and my mate is going to lend me Tomb Raider.

Completed a second playthrough of Dragon Age: Origins last night.

Tonight, I'm finally going to crack Dark Souls out of it's cellophane. Apparently it's a tough one but I'm feeling man enough for the challenge! :D

Same. Even when I had guns and ammo, I rarely used them. Loads more fun to lop off limbs/decapitate the buggers. Only ever used guns for the big guys, and even then it was only if I didn't have the knife-throwing skill powered up.

Those aren't games..

From the "tiles" menu, just type "calc" or "notepad" and they should show up.

Enjoy your new interface. Remember, Microsoft says that it's what you want. :yes:
