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''.

Just about reached 100% completion of GTA V (360 version) and I have to say one thing: there is a lot of driving and collecting random stuff from all over the map. I think my least favourite mission was being forced to run through the desert for 5 miles in a row (think 20 mins of repeatedly pressing the x button). Not much fun in that - at least the triathlons have a sense of competition.

k2  said 11 days ago:

I need new games. Or I should play some of the Humble ones.

mrmagoo  said 11 days ago:

anyone got the new Far Cry? I'm keen on that. Also keen to try this Destiny game. I think they both really need to PS4 though?

still plugging along with Watch Dogs

hyperfuzz  said 11 days ago:

i'm enjoying Far Cry 4 (on PS4)... never played 3 (or Blood Dragon) - i imagine if you liked those you would like this.

hyperfuzz  said 11 days ago:

also picked up PES15 on PS4 for $37 the other day on the '12 Deals Of Christmas' online sale. pretty good.

i have too many games to play now

NiteShok  said 11 days ago:

There was an interesting story in The Weekend Australian Magazine on Saturday: How a 16 year-old Australian hacked his way into the computer systems of Microsoft and the U.S. Army

oort  said 11 days ago:

hyperfuzz has all the games. GTA online is pretty great doing drive-bys with pals.

hyperfuzz  said 11 days ago:

yeah, i stocked up on the new release titles when i could get them under $50 (thanks JB coupon) and have been picking up a few things on sale... i haven't had a crack at GTA online though as my trial PS+ account expired. will probably sign up again soon

anok  said 10 days ago:

i just watched the good game xmas episode and it made me wish i had an extra a day a week to spend on gaming.

k2  said 10 days ago:

Weird, I watched it last night and it re-enforced my feelings about how mediocre gaming has been in 2014.

VR is the most exciting thing happening. Believe the hype.

LovingTheAlien  said 10 days ago:

i have been playing tokyo jungle. its kind of ok a bit of fun but seems choppy and the graphics could be better. same can be said for DC universe online which i've been playing too.

anok  said 10 days ago:

hey i barely play anything ever, so everything looks exciting and new.

mrmagoo  said 10 days ago:

I just read that there is a plan for a Last of Us 2, this I like, hope it happens

CaptainHowdy  said 10 days ago:

i feel like there's been a dearth of games released in 2014 that i feel helplessly compelled to play. maybe i'm just being finicky. i miss gaming though. i can almost hear wow's siren call...

k2  said 10 days ago:

I just read that there is a plan for a Last of Us 2, this I like, hope it happens

I'm positive it will. The Last of Us Remastered was probably the best thing I played this year but it isn't really a 2014 game.

I really can't wait for Red Dead Redemption 2 and No Man's Sky looks fucking awesome. Also can't wait for both new Zelda and new Starfox.

seahunt  said 10 days ago:

Is Red Dead Redemption getting a sequel?

Holy shit, that just made my day. That is one of my favourite ever games.

k2  said 10 days ago:

Yep, not officially announced, but confirmed on Neogaf. Most likely going to be called


k2  said 10 days ago:

Oh also - Red Dead Redemption Remastered for PS4 in March. I might actually buy the game again and play through in 1080P

seahunt  said 7 days ago:

Started playing Telltale Games ''Game of Thrones'' on the ipad.

Ok so far, but the 'feel' of it is a bit different from The Walking Dead. For one thing, the art looks a bit rustier and a bit more shit than walking dead.

Also, *clocked *Uncharted 3 last night. What a game - fun to play, probably not quite as epic as Uncharted 2, but still awesome.

CaptainHowdy  said 7 days ago:

i thing my gaming notebook is borked. i thought it was an absurd driver issue but now i think it's hardware. can anybody recommend somewhere i could take it to have someone to check it out/fix it?
