I feel sorry for anyone who didn't play it because they changed Dante, it really was an excellent game.

Yeah, as much as I prefer the original campy Japanese aesthetic of the original games, I thought DmC was still phenomenal. Absolutely loved the way the demon realm seeped through in to the real world and what not.

I've been playing a lot of MGS4 recently, just finished Act 4. I think this is single-handedly the most batshit insane game I've ever played. I don't even care that it's like 50% cut-scenes, I'm absolutely gripped. The way it's tying the first three games together is brilliant.

Grabbed Homeworld Remastered. I forgot how much I love that old game and even with running it on fairly low settings the revisions looks pretty damn good.

Took some games for trade in to Game today and was told they were worth about £25. So I told them CEX were offering more and after 10 minutes they upped it to £38. So I grabbed myself a copy of Wolfenstein and Lego Marvel for Xbone.

Played a bit of the FF 15 demo, and it's looking pretty awesome! Some weird annoyances, like this odd stasis mechanic when you run out of MP. You can still attack, but you can't do special moves basically. That's fine, but EVERY TIME you run out of MP, your character crouches down like "uggghhh I need to go to the bathroom" which REALLY breaks the flow of the combat.

So I finally started my Spurs save on FM15. I've tried a couple of times but got overwhelmed with the amount of trash in the team, and Kane's shitty stats.

January update has fixed the second problem, and me finally accepting I've just going to have to sell half the squad has fixed the first.

I've been on an FM binge for days. See if you can get Nkoulou, he'll sort out your defence problems straight up. Don't be afraid of reducing your first team to 18 good players. Nobody's got time for any of that shit.

Anyway, after getting fed up with Leicester's horrible, miserly board I got a job offer from Werder Bremen where I pinched Ross Barkley and John Stones for pittance because Everton got relegated. Totally revamped the squad, won the Pokal, finished second and now going for title/CL knockouts. I have a wonderful regen called Teichmann, who's put off bids from Real and Chelsea just to be with me. I changed my avatar to honour him.

I need help.

:lol: I've found it really hard to get into this years game, but this save has got crack-hooked again.

I was playing till near midnight last night, then was up at 6am today, playing by 6.20 after breakfast.

Got no money left though, changed pretty much the entire midfield, and felt a bit dirty bringin in Reyes, who's got fuck all for pace but his technical and mental stats are off the charts and he only cost 1.2mill.

No money, no problem.

I got the editor for kicks just so I could give Tonbridge a budget of £200m to see how how they can soar their way up the table.

I saw that. I've definitely felt that connection with a regen before.

I'll never forget you, Mark Radcliffe
