Yeah looks like another shitty game for PlayStation 4 again! Don't know why they don't just give us a classic game from PS2 or PS3 instead of a game that looks like it was on the the Sega fucking Master System.

Bleh. I really don't want another Xbox, but a good controller is so damn important to gaming. I don't want Kinect, their stupid interface, their entertainment nonsense, any of it. Why can Sony just copy their controller then I can be happy.

Pretty sure I saw a PS3 controller in Tesco that was a very similar model to a 360 one.. One of those dodgy "Madcatz" type things, but it still could be what you're after.

Games-wise, I picked up Watch Dogs and COD: Ghosts yesterday.
So far I'm pleasantly surprised by Ghosts. I wasn't sure on how the dog aspect would work but it's not such a ballache as I feared.
Played the first mission of Watch Dogs. I can see myself enjoying it but not getting very far before trading it back in. Hopefully it grabs me a bit more soon (or at least before it drops in trade-in value :lol: )

To be honest I would dearly love to set up a new world and make one as a four player or more. Perhaps in survival too, but a couple of the guys I wanted to do that with turned their noses up saying the game is £15 and too expensive. I have possibly spent more time collectively over the year or so I have had it than I did on Black Ops 2. A game that I (and the two guys in question) spent £60 for the Hardened Edition.

Yup, I think I'll be trading in Watch Dogs tomorrow. Just went on it again and.. I just don't give a shit.

Also I'm deleting a bunch of game data off my PS3. I got to WWE2K14 and now The Rock's theme music is playing over and over again while it works on it.. For fuck's sake :lol:

Heard only but praise for that game? What didn't you like about it? I only ask because its one of the games I was sort of looking forward to playing on the xbone, and that list isn't a big list. Well yeah its Assassins Creed IV and Titanfall. Hence me not rushing to the shops just yet for an xbone.

I think it could be that I've just finished Wolfenstein (which was crazy and fun), and I've still got Far Cry 3 (which is less crazy but still a lot of fun) and Bulletstorm (which is, again, crazy and fun) to finish, so it just seems a bit bland.
I might not be giving it much of a chance, to be honest, but realistically, if I want to play a 3rd person sandbox game, I've still got GTA V to finish, and I think I'd sooner go back to Sleeping Dogs and polish that off first.

I'll probably come back to it in the future, but I think right now I'm just regretting coughing up full price as I'm not really in the mood for it.

I can understand that. I haven't even started Saints Row 4 yet because of the fun I am currently having on GTA5. Sleeping Dogs came up for free a few months ago on gold and playing it after GTA5...god. Not a second of gaming went by thinking, "I could be playing GTA5 now."

Yeah I'll have to complete GTA V before going back to Sleeping Dogs. I just remember with that, I felt involved in the story from the start. Whereas with Watch Dogs I haven't really felt like I need (or want) to get involved at the moment.

I'm loving Watchdogs it's great fun! the only thing letting it down is the same thing as GTA5 and that's the shit radio stations/soundtrack i mean Public Enemy is the only artist i like and it isn't even one of their best songs, Other than that it's a great game and i'd highly recommend it.
