On the point of wasting money, considering picking up a PS4. I really wanna play Bloodborne, and I'll need it for when Pro Evo comes out in September.

As long as you only want bloodborne and multi platform games, go for it. The exclusives are shocking.


Yeah I'm literally buying it for Bloodborne, a better Pro Evo, and a decent bluray player.


I was reading the other day that Bloodborne may be coming to PC. I have an Xbone so won't be getting a PS4 (Playstation's have god awful controllers) and I shall hope that it does indeed make the jump to a decent platform.

Got it during the christmas/new year sale for £3.74 I believe :P

Very much the same here, but I also can't run it on my current hardware anyway xD


Damn that's cheap! Is it for the physical copy? Also at the moment considering I'm so far behind as I've not gamed for the last few years I really don't see the point in buying something new as they're so expensive. In fact I'm quite surprised by how many patches and updates you get on console games. You never got that sort of thing I. The 16 6 bit era. However you didn't get games like GTA5 haha!


Nah just a copy on steam. But yeah I usually go for buying one or two steps down from what's just coming out and end up with some really brilliant games for very low price, along with any initial bugs usually having been sorted out.

Key downside of course is that in terms of multiplayer people have often moved on to the "next big thing" to play with their mates, which is exactly the reason COD still continues to sell well.

To be honest I'm mostly just impressed by the game pad. It's pretty well put together! I don't understand why they don't sell a load of their older games though. Diddy Kong Racing, the Pokémon Games, etc. I'm still convinced Nintendo don't actually understand humans or their desires :lol:

Bloodborne is viciously pushing my shit in.

It takes a while to get out of the Dark Souls mindset of "Hold up shield, gently walk forwards, block for ages to learn attack pattern" and instead that I have to keep dodging and hitting and countering.

I've died on the first area about 10 times and it's all been my fault and I love it.

It took me over 10 hours of farming and one super focused 15 minute attempt to beat a certain boss on Bloodborne yesterday, and today I've beaten 2 and explored 3 areas and beat a dungeon

Fuck I hate that boss.

Started co-oping Saints Row 4. Been a bit of a glitchy experience so far. Its playable. Aside from that Far Cry Classic is a work in progress, if I can ever drag myself from building random shit on Minecraft.

World of Tanks compatibility between xbone and 360 sounds like great news. My Grille is ready.

Preordered God of war 3 on ps4. Its the only one I haven't played and I loved the others so I thought it would be worth a play. Also, I need a game for my ps4 that I can't get for my Xbox one. Any game really. But not killzone shadow fall. Never that.

Really loving Saints Row 4 even though it's mental! Kind of annoyed that I'm yet to play a game that's exclusive to the PS4. It's funny to think that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are near enough ten year old consoles. If you go back a few generations. That's like expecting AAA games that were being released on the Playstation 1 to also be released on the Megadrive and Super NES.

I need Gat Outta Hell as soon as possible. I played all the dlc on SR4 which was varying degrees of insanity.

Just started Stick of Truth. In Butters kitchen, open a drawer, hand full of pubes. I am in tears. More silly games for me to play please.
