Thread 4 has now started eating posts as well.

Bah.

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 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 years ago:

couldn't stand skate 2 so no.

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


ed  said about 5 years ago:

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


k2  said about 5 years ago:

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


CaptainFez  said about 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 years ago:

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


happycow  said about 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 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''.


tinyman  said about 5 years ago:

hahaha!

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


hyperfuzz  said about 2 months ago:

you could do worse than this PS4 starter kit - https://www.jbhifi.com.au/features/games/Bundles/ps4-hot-offer-1/

I wrote about my favourite game, Rocksmith 2014:

This Video Game Has Solved The Problem of Learning Guitar


tihstar  said about 2 months ago:

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


NiteShok  said about 2 months ago:

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


mrmagoo  said about 2 months 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 about 2 months ago:

have you found the trick ending?


hyperfuzz  said about 2 months ago:

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


mrmagoo  said about 2 months ago:

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


anonymous  said about 2 months 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 about 2 months ago:

ah yeah, think someone mentioned it further up the thread

gonna look at youtube now


seahunt  said 20 days ago:

New Doom!
New Fallout!


GrantleyBuffalo  said 18 days ago:

The E3 clips of Star Wars Battlefront and Uncharted 4 twisted my arm; just nabbed a PS4 bundle from EB Games - GTA5, Last of Us and The Order 1886 for $498.


anok  said 18 days ago:

was excited when my brother loaned me his ps4 for 6 weeks while he's away (+ battlefield 4, destiny, borderlands, fifa 14 and fading light... as well as gtaV and the last of us which i loved on ps3).

when i play my attention lasts for about 30 minutes before i want to do something else. before this trial i was seriously considering buying one but now there's no way, which is good to know i guess. just thought i'd be enjoying it more. hmm


oort  said 18 days ago:

I don't really get minecraft but the new hololensy demo from E3 just blew my mind. outrageous


slothman  said 18 days ago:

the preview for just cause 3 looks amazing


CaptainHowdy  said 18 days ago:

i'm a spoiled brat so i have a ps4 now.
i've got bloodborne, the last of us remastered, assassins creed unity and the order 1886 to choose from to play first. where should i start? i have no idea.


k2  said 18 days ago:

I honestly think the PS4 is the most boring console ever released.


hyperfuzz  said 18 days ago:

i would start with The Last Of Us. the last two are pretty zzz and Bloodborne is a lot longer.


anok  said 18 days ago:

yeah, the last of us is the best game i've played and probably what i'll judge everything against from this point on.

i may as well have a crack at the remaster.
