Anyone want a code for Max: the curse of brotherhood? I have one for Xbox one and one for 360

Just played through Spec Ops: The Line.

Pretty fun game for a generic shoot 'em up, even if it's short. I enjoyed the morality system, and that your choices actually had consequences on the outcome. It's a game I can see myself replaying.

Anyone been playing wild hunt? I've played a few hours so far just doing side quests and what not.

Probably going to pick it up for PS4, but I have too many games to play/finish (Dragon Age, Last of Us) as well as a couple of the PSN freebies, Transistor is bloody fun. Tough, but fun.

Loving it! Done two witcher contracts, I love that it's not a case of go here and kill x, there's much more depth. Gonna hammer it when I get in!

Completed the vault of glass in destiny, finally. It was tricky but not as bad as I thought it would be. Out of the five of us,3 had done it multiple times on hard so that might be why :lol: done more of the prison of elders as well which is fun. Only the crota raid to do now.

The only game I've properly played in the last fortnight is Rogue Legacy. That game is very much one of those "just one more try..." type games. Damn addictive.

I am loving the revival of the rogue-like genre with indie games and shit.

I've put more hours into Rogue Legacy and Binding of Isaac that I have any other games (Except maybe the Football Managers)

Yeah, the indie / digital scene as a whole has seen the revival of some of my favourite types of games, particularly platformers and Metrovanias.

I've bought This War of Mine because my mates been spunking over it.

Other than that, I already own the majority of the things I wanted from other steam sales.

I'm much too busy being addicted to Xcomn again to byu anything anyway.
