Thread 4 has now started eating posts as well.


What are folk playing? I'm still addicted to MW2 online, Red Dead single player, and Football Manager when I can't get to a console.

tinyman  said about 4 years ago:

around this time, maybe should've mentioned E3 in the title as well.

GTA IV (yes, I'm behind the times), Lord of Ultima.

GTA IV sucks. Lord of Ultima is interesting, but not sure it's my thing. WIll stick it out for a bit to see what happens.

runaredlight!  said about 4 years ago:

E3 should be great this year.

Looking forward to what the name change with EA's NBA titles will bring.

Playing Red Dead, matching up online is rather difficult. Managed to find one player (once) and shot him dead by accident so he left. Never found another player online again.

slothman  said about 4 years ago:

love this new thread smell!

playing red dead too. loving it.

i'm ps3, btw, and i'd like to say how much this new generation of gaming is shitting me. I don't have as much free time on my hands to play games as i used to so it shits me to no end when i put in a game i'm hanging to play, like red dead redemption, and i have to update my system then load in a bunch of trophy information and all this other bullshit i'm not interested in. it's not that long ago that you could put a disc in a console and be playing a new game within 2 mins. what happened to those days? sorry about the rant.

Has anybody created a park on Skate 3 yet?

slothman  said about 4 years ago:

couldn't stand skate 2 so no.

my little diatribe aside i do like playing buzz on the internet

ed  said about 4 years ago:

Still on Dragon Age and Torchlight over here. Gotta love replay value.

k2  said about 4 years ago:

I'm playing Portal, InFamous and FFXIII at the moment. Good times.

CaptainFez  said about 4 years ago:

I've gone backwards. Playing The Operative: No One Lives Forever on PC. OLD but still kinda fun. Gotta love $2 Vinnies finds.

runaredlight!  said about 4 years ago:

Looking forward to heading home and hunting armadillo's, breaking horses in and getting myself into duels with douches who I shoot 12 times before they even pull their gun out of their pocket.

k2  said about 4 years ago:

so I'm 26 hours into FFXIII now (playing it slowly because of uni commitments, but uni is over now..) and it has finally opened up into a free roaming game. It looks spectacular, and is actually quite a lot of fun. I just wish the characters didnt suck so much, and the story wasnt so confusing.

runaredlight!  said about 4 years ago:

What part are you up to k2? I gave up in some machine like area or more specifically where the black dude and the aussie girl have to press four buttons to get through a door. Much more past that? I'm considering selling it.

k2  said about 4 years ago:

im up to Gran Pulse - chapter 11 I think. I got stuck for ages on this boss guy Cid Raines. I seriously dies 10 times trying to kill the fucker, but finally did it after changing many battle team combos and paradigms. Seriously, I feel like the game just started. At least I can grind for a bit now and get my levels and weapons up. I'm doing missions at the moment too.

runaredlight!  said about 4 years ago:

So the true FF game is yet to come still? I've all but hated every second of it so far. So restricted.

bungle  said about 4 years ago:

playing half life 2 ep 2 on osx right now, it's awesome

happycow  said about 4 years ago:

Red Dead and Mirrors Edge, both on Xbox 360.

In between these I'm in training for my Sonic The Hedgehog Marathon for Charity

If you guess how long it will take me to beat Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Sonic and Knuckles on Mega Drive in one sitting you will win a Sonic Prize pack and a $50 donation to a charity of your choice. No shit.

If anyone wants to host this at their venue it would be much appreciated. Otherwise it's my lounge room.

happycow  said about 4 years ago:

RDR - just saw a bloke ahead of me on a dirt track get off his horse and run into the field and stop. I followed him to see what he was doing. He was taking a piss on a rock. Yellow stream and all. Then when he's done he gets back on his horse and continues about his way.

This game is amazing.

tinyman  said about 4 years ago:

haha. if you see that in your city you'd be disgusted. yet now they're putting it in games y'all loving it.

Haff  said about 4 years ago:

That just put an image in my head of happycow running up to some guy pissing in the street, watching intently, then saying ''this is amazing, there's a yellow stream and everything''.

mrmagoo  said about 1 month ago:

still going on Far Cry 4, it rules! now im in the north, shit is so much harder

hyperfuzz  said about 1 month ago:

yeah, I had a great time playing it. my one piece of advice is when you get to the end, don't make a rash decision ;)

hit a wall with Bloodborne and haven't felt compelled to return. Good game though.

oort  said about 1 month ago:

keen for a driving game (ps4), project cars is the one to get right?

Well Drive Club is rubbish. Wish they would hurry up with GT7.

hyperfuzz  said about 1 month ago:

The Crew is also apparently rubbish. Whatever is cheapest is the answer

hyperfuzz  said 29 days ago:

you could do worse than this PS4 starter kit -

I wrote about my favourite game, Rocksmith 2014:

This Video Game Has Solved The Problem of Learning Guitar

tihstar  said 24 days ago:

Love it. You've convinced me to give it a bash.

NiteShok  said 24 days ago:

Success! Keep us posted in here on how you like it. It's a life-changer.

mrmagoo  said 24 days ago:

finished the main storyline on Far Cry 4, very enjoyable, kind of whimpered out a bit towards the end, but some great fun shock and awe missions towards the end

I still have heaps left to do in the game, couple of outposts and towers left, Pagan's Gulag... plus heaps of the little challenges. might go back and change the storyline a bit between Amita and Sabal

hardly did anything with crafting syringes again, can't be arsed really

good game

anonymous  said 24 days ago:

have you found the trick ending?

hyperfuzz  said 24 days ago:

might go back and change the storyline a bit between Amita and Sabal

They did a good job of making you regret every decision you made with these two

mrmagoo  said 24 days ago:

not sure, what's the trick? sitting and talking to him? or is there something else?

anonymous  said 24 days ago:

you can probably youtube it, which is where I saw it.

At the start when he says he'll come back, actually wait for him (go make a coffee or something, think its like 15 mins)

mrmagoo  said 24 days ago:

ah yeah, think someone mentioned it further up the thread

gonna look at youtube now
