Thanks to the miracle of Tesco Clubcard points it cost us a grand total of £95, plus we got AC:U for free which is handy as I haven't bought it on the PC yet :lol: Gives me a while to finally finish AC:BF while I wait for them to patch up all the cracks in Unity. Just requested £80 of Play.com vouchers from my old Play card so we can splurge on another controller and another game. Should probably get a 2 player co-op game we can both play together, it looks like the Lego games are the only choice on the PS4 at the moment unless anyone can correct me?


Co op wise there is Diablo 3 and Resogun off the top of my head. Apparently Child of Light has local co-op, CoD AW has it (oddly enough), but there's a nice list here if you want them all...

(Get Resogun though, seriously, it's cheap as chips and so much fun!)

Thanks both!

Amy, looked at that list after posting in here actually haha I shall definitely be using that site in the future as we love our co-op games. Totally forgot Diablo III had co-op, and checking out the reviews the PS4 co-op seems to be excellent. I expect we'll get that to start with.

Really surprised to see the new COD has it! Won't be getting that as I prefer to avoid console FPS gaming.

Resogun looks great though, will be purchasing that.

Picked up Battlefield 4 and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 yesterday. Both are going back tomorrow.
Sniper I just can't get into, and we had a power cut while I was on the first mission and couldn't be bothered to start again. I may change my mind on taking it back, but I can't see myself wanting to play it anytime soon.

Battlefield 4 can just completely go and fuck itself. Absolutely chock full of bugs that stop you progressing - I had to restart a mission because after killing all of the enemies, it didn't trigger the cutscene, so I was wandering around aimlessly hopelessly looking for whatever I was meant to find, or whoever I was meant to kill, while some dick in a helicopter asks me for targets. Then today, I try a mission 3 times, first 2 times the boat I start in gets stuck on random debris and won't reverse off, then the third time I get past the debris and onto the beach and my fucking character decides "nah I'm alright in the boat" and won't get out!
I haven't downloaded any updates because the file is over a gigabyte, and I don't want to boot up my PS3 and then wait a couple of hours until I play a game.
I'm sick of developers releasing incomplete games and thinking they can just patch it later. A few megabytes is fair enough, as that can just be coding or updating an old file that got missed before the disc went out (in fact Sniper 2 had a 150mb update, which wasn't a problem), but over a gigabyte means that the game on the disc just is not finished. Yet they still expect fans to pay £50+ on release? Ridiculous!

finished my trial of dragon age today, after doing the prologue with a different character. the reason for this is i went and used the dragon age keep website, which is actually pretty good. it did take me a while to get some of my choices locked in because some things obviously cant be picked together unless theres another choice done the right way, so had to go back and change things that it wouldnt let me have at first. hopefully it will be worth doing because its quite extensive and as i said it took a while.

I can personally attest that the Diablo 3 PS4 local co op works great. No problems, and it's a blast. :D

Agreed in part. Far Cry was a great game, but Far Cry 2 was one of the worst games I've ever played. In all fairness I've not played any of them after FC2 though.

Far Cry was excellent, Far Cry 2 was horrendous, 3 was great in places but let itself down in others, but I loved the Blood Dragon expansion.

Yeah Far Cry 2 was an abomination! Far Cry 3 was brilliant and Far Cry 4 is even better

Traded Battlefield 4 and Sniper 2 in today for WWE 2K15. That'll be going back too.

Same problems I had with 2K14 - Dodgy controls, no tutorial/practice mode and nearly impossible to successfully hit reversals or kick out after missing once. Would much rather just watch wrestling.

Didn't particularly enjoy far cry, although it was decent. Disliked 2, really enjoyed 3. I'll play 4 at some point but I'm in no rush.

Got wwe last night, and I am enjoying it though I have only played career mode. Its slow at times and you are limited in what you can do, as you have to upgrade your stats and buy abilities. I can't do top rope dives yet so I am working towards that. I hope the pace picks up as I upgrade because it is quite slow, they have acted as if the match rating system is new, but really it was in smackdown vs raw 09 I think it was, still a good system though. Good so far, but needs to speed up.

Apparently, if you start acting like a heel (getting DQ'd, etc), you get a longer and more fulfilling story in the career mode.
Can't confirm for myself as I traded it back in earlier :lol:

Leveling is Warlords of Draenor is so fucking fun.

I don't know if it's the characters or the shiny new environment, but I've loved it so far.

Also seems quick as fuck, I'm upto 54 in like 3 hours.
