I have downloaded both Gameboy and Gameboy Advance emulators for the phone. I already have Pokemon for both (Yellow and Ruby)... but what other games should I get?

I can't believe how addicted I am to PayDay 2. Definitely one of the best shooters I have played in years <3

Actually had a good group in LFG on WoW tonight, got pretty far through Highmaul before they had to go due to the time, added me on battle.net to finish it off tomorrow. Right funny cunts as well, ex Hull uni students freeloading on the Uni TS server so we were just talking shite the whole time :lol:

If only everyone on WoW was like that.. ha

Yeah, LFR is the most horrible thing at times.

Also Suikoden 2 is coming to PSN in January, Apparently you can get Suikoden 1 but only on Vita, can't seem to find too much about it.

I really need to get around to getting my iLvl up so I can do some Highmaul on normal.

I tried LFR and it's alright but man, there's like zero mechanics. Seemed near impossible to actually die.

Im finally setting my xbox up in the next week. Will be playing games offline for the foreseeable future due to my xbox being just outside of my wifi zone but at least I can complete the balance of games I want to before I am looking at the xbone.

Im usually not great at stealth games, i can do them but i will usually get spotted and have to either fight or hide, in this i have been doing quite well which makes it even more annoying :lol:

This is exactly why I ended up returning it. Got stuck at one part and hadn't even seen a fucking zombie yet.

Oh yeah the LFR for the first part of Highmaul is insanely easy.. you really don't have to try at all. Good luck when you try it through the group finder, people are such bellends :lol:

Also, quick and easy way to get your iLvl up, do battlegrounds for a while and get the gear from strongboxes.

Picked up Infamous: Second Son on the cheap the other day. It looks beautiful and is so far, seemingly a lot more difficult that the first 2 (at least until you get a few more powers). Running out of smoke is a bastard when you don't know where to get more from but it's oh so stisfying travelling around the city.

Not really liking Delsin as much as a character though. Hoping he goes through some big development but it's also maybe because I liked Cole so much.

Considering it seems like a thoroughly mediocre game relying on controversy and publicity for sales, no.

I think in the past three months, I've pretty much exclusively played FIFA. Oh the shame...

Getting tempted to buy a new 3DS now I've found where the right time to play is. Or I could just stick to emulation.
