Saints Row IV has been pretty fun so far, although I'm not entirely sure what the point of including cars in that game was. They are useless as soon as you get your first powers.

Style, mostly.

Sure, running around playing a better Crackdown than Crackdown is one thing, but being able to nonsensically use a car slower than you on foot to mow people down is its own reward.

Holy crap, it's you! Hello you.


Got a PS4 the other day. Pretty much lol-ing that you need a £40/year PS+ account to even use the fucking webbrowser. What a crock of shit. :lol:

I've been playing GTA V, since it's taking forever to come to Linux. Might pick up South Park too, if it's not stupidly censored.

Yep! I have returned!

And I was toying with the idea of getting a PS4 for a while, but seeing as the only things I'm looking forward to are Killer Instinct and SFV, and both are coming to PC next march, I don't know if I can be bothered.

Not really started anything new for a good few months. Might change that today if I can shake this wicked hangover. If I can't I guess it will be screwing with people using aircraft on GTA5

Mirrors Edge completed. Fun game, shit ending, and got a bit staggered by the random awkward forced combat sections. Really does feel like the tech demo for Dying Light.

However that ticks another game off my steam list that I've completed. 15 down, 492 to go.

Mate Jon just got an xbone. I now think I am the last person left out of all the fellows I regularly party with without next gen. Hopefully get a decent deal in November. :(

AC Brotherhood at the moment and before that it was Far Cry 3.

I don't even like paying over the odds for new release games so I'm loathe to pay Sony £40 a year to play online. There should be a reduced rate for occasional online gamers. The only games I ever enjoyed playing online were Red Dead and Dark Souls, everything else I do is single player anyway.

I think you will enjoy GTA online. Lost a few weeks on that I imagine as I did going around shooting poseys south of the border on red dead.

Also brotherhood. Love AC. CANT WAIT to play Assassins Creed Launch Day Patch French and British editions on xbone.

Yes, it's very good. I played AC II about 3 or 4 years ago and I've only just got around to playing it's sequel. I've also got Revelations to play next or may opt for Borderlands 2 if I fancy something different. Decisions, decisions!

I really enjoyed revelations because Ezio is a total badass. I would miss ac3 and its dlc and play Black Flag and Rogue. Unity I am getting straight away when I go next gen with Minecraft and GTA5.

I've been in the Xbox preview program since early on, before BC was announced and all that, and everything always worked fine. Until the new dashboard. Worked for one night and now I cannot connect to Xbox live. The problem is not my internet or Xbox live (every other device including 360 is fine) so I'll need to factory reset my console to get rid of the fucking thing. Think this will be the end of my time in the preview program to be honest.

Did a factory reset and I still have the new dash but its actually working. Win/win really because the new dash is pretty cool. Reportedly 50% faster than ps4 UI.

I am actually broke from trolling people on GTA. I had half a million and was saving up for that sexy as fuck Zentorno (with green naturally) and blew it all on fucking with peoples online experience. Money well spent.
