which one are you going to get?
and have released some genuinely great games that make use of the specs and the features
Couple of months of saving.
To be honest since the XBONE has been released, I've been edging back to the dark side. I hate the idea of going to Sony's software but overall it looks like a cheaper better console (DRR5 ram).
But it's GDDR5 RAM, which is actually slower to access than DDR3 RAM, but better for shifting large amounts of graphical data around - which is why you find it in most PC graphics cards.
Still, the PS4 looks to have a bit more graphical firepower and I'd guess less RAM hogged by the OS.
Well that puts a spin on things. So that isn't a larger advantage after all.
Although my current PC is pretty future proof at the moment. The idea of going back to gaming at only 1080p sends a shiver down my spine.
WOW BAGIBERS SIR
I will get a 2nd Graphics Card down the line though because the GTX 670 won't be able to cope for too much longer (well it will, it'll play above PS4 standards but it wont be like SUPER PERFORMANCE HYPER XXL PERFORMANCE) I just need the extra VRam for the extra effects.
You might see an improvement when editing large files like videos and high-res photos, but the vast majority of games are more than happy with 8. Especially when the next gen consoles have about effectively 5Gb after other overheads.
I just like future proofing
Crashing seems to happen more etc. This could be because I have a low end system but PC gaming seems more buggy. That said, if you don't mind a tinker, it's better.
going to wait to see what they look like. wonder if they will all have cocks drawn on the top?
controller looks cool anyways
I thought they only came for our wallets in Summer and Winter? Where will it end?!
so basically one every 3 months, MADNESS!
I've got about 20 games in my backlog as it is.
Which means I've bought 12 Humble Bundles amounting to over 60 games.
Have I eve finished one? Have I fuck.
Joined the waitlist as they've all been claimed (not sure how this works but Amazon says I have a 'fair' chance of getting one).
Think I'm going to get a Wii U, play the few games I really want to try and then sell it, and my PS3, in six months time to fund a PS4.
hwo is Black Friday even a thing in the UK anyway?
People who have added to their basket have 15 minutes to complete the purchase. After that time the item is released to the next person on the waitlist. Hoping people see the deal, get carried away, add to basket and then decide not to buy. Might get lucky.
Just got it. With Lego City (don't know what that is) and Rayman Legends. Gonna get ZombiU and Wind Waker HD too. Any other good Wii U games?
Lego City is like GTA but in Lego
The Directors Cut of Deus Ex:Human Revolution is worth a shout if you haven't already played the original release.
And Bravely Default (good title), but I don't think that's out yet.
ZombiU seemed pretty crap from the bit I played of it to be honest.
but released it shortly after. Much as I want it, and they're by all accounts two decent games, I can't justify it at the moment :(
probs be some decent deals post-xams anyhow
got Rocksmith 2014 and after 4 hours (in 2 days) I already feel significantly better than I was before, thumps up.
Might buy Rocksmith (Original W/Song Transfer pack) as it's on sale... an extra 50songs for £25.... Duck you shrewd business man, I should rename myself Chris_Budget.
Replaying Rayman Legends and I'm pretty sure that is my GOTY, it's just superb and it's such a fucking shame that people ignored it because it came out so close to GTA V.
I adored Origins <3
it's gone from being 'like a cartoon' to 'like being in a painting' and the level design is so much better, the difficulty curve is way better as well (it doesn't spike like the first game) it also has the best 4 player couch mode in a decade in it's football mini game and you can play old Origins levels that have been remastered in the new art style... + Daily challenges which are SUPER addictive... it is the perfect game.
looks quite cool. basically guitar hero with a real guitar?
and it's proven super effective thus far, it has dynamic difficulty for starters so the song fills in the better you get and it'll keep the sections you're struggling with at a lower difficulty whereas the bits you flourish in will continue to ramp up, you can even repeat a section(s) over and over at different tempos/difficulties etc etc etc.
+ it has a ninja mini game to aid you (and a duck one, and a house of the dead spoof, and many more.)
I don't like the tutor very much though, he has a kind of generic voice to him and sometimes sound patronizing. I did an E major at the start of the game and he went 'AWESOME' it is not awesome its an E Major.
that looks perfect for me. I'm the kind of guy who absolutely refuses to learn anything without a ninja based minigame to aid me. Also: it has Blood and Thunder. SOLD.
especially as it didn't sell out, £30 including the cable is a good deal.
Died a lot.
I was smacked up on night nurse so it was the only thing I could handle. I I basically passed out with the controller in my hand. Minecraft is so relaxing.
LAVA I HATE YOU
Hotline Miami - The music and just totally makes this game.
The Swapper - Some tough tough puzzles but nothing which beat me, the art and sound design was pretty great. Definitely had Dead Space vibes.
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet - Great game maybe just slightly too easy. Wish it was bigger.
The Wolf Among Us(pt.1) - Decent beginning. Have to say though the game engine stuttering during important scenes really pulls you out of the experience.
Gone Home - Potential for a really great game in this style. This feels like a pre cursor though to that greatness.
Kentucky Route Zero(pt.1+2) - Surreal point and click with no real puzzles but very David Lynch-esque and worth it for the interesting dialogue and choices you can make.
Currently playing through Bastion. Loving it so far.
the only 2 good cricket games ever are:
Shane Warne's/Brian Lara on PS
Cricket Captain on Amiga
Seems to be a hard game to render, or maybe no one can be arsed to put enough effort into making a decent sim.
Bowling is always boring as fuck too.
International Cricket Captain on the SNES wants a word, amazing game
they should put it back on sale for a quid. probably shift loads of copies.
some of those bugs are pretty hilarious
did that get on Steam?
or Atari 2600.
Both of which people are still making games for.
I've got it in my basket and 12 minutes to decide :/
This morning's lightning deal stacked with the "Buy a premium Wii U get 2 games free" one. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=bundlwiiutwogame?ie=UTF8&docId=1000758923&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-leftnav&pf_rd_r=132NKBCXMH6XVSBHF3R2&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=450885947&pf_rd_i=300703
Like yesterday's deal, gave it some thought, decided I really can't justify the outlay at the moment given lack of time for gaming and the amount I've got to play on PC.
If I go through the link above it's just the standard deal. How do you combine the Black Friday deal with the console bundle?
then add the two games from that page linked - obvs, you'll need to go through the waitlist and cross your fingers now.
I did exactly that and got it down to £198.99. Must have done something wrong. Ah well, I'll keep an eye on it.
the final price doesn't show until you checkout - the last page before you commit to buying.
Hopefully some decent deals come up in 2014 when I've got a bit more free cash floating around!
Like a out of touch old man who's got all his ideas about games and gaming from the Daily Mail. "Only men who can't get girlfriends play games."
"They make everyone violent"
get a word in edgeways. He's basically made up his mind that it's all shit and he wont even entertain the possibility of open his mind about it.
but the Game of the Year Edition is only £15 on Amazon now for Black Friday
or £10 GOTY edition, I only played a lil bit of it... should go back to it after finishing Rayman Legends for a 2nd time :)
Got it off XBOX Live for 3.74 last night in some one day deal. Hoping they'll have some more like that.
What a game, wanted to throw my pad out the window because I had to go through that bit before the first boss 7 times till I realised I had to swing down on it and then lock on so I could dodge it.
Love love loooove the combat though.
also I guess this means there'll be some fresh blood playing the game now. I might start a new character and keep my summon sign outside of the Capra Demon's fog gate. Shepherd some new guys through.
Not sure if that was a good choice as I rarely use the fire thing anyway.
you buy upgrades. So if you don't end up not using it then you'll only have wasted souls rather than levelling up attributes you could have used elsewhere. Also it's quite handy anyway.
It does waste enemies pretty quickly. Not sure how I feel about the axe and shield.
I've only played an hour of The Witcher and now you've gone and made me buy the sequel. And FFVII. And Dark Souls, which plays so comically badly with keyboard and mouse that I've had to buy an Xbox controller adaptor for three times the cost of the game.
Still, it'll come handy for the two Arkham games I bought but haven't played. And Darksiders II. And oh god there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So far FC3, Don't Starve, Dishonoured, Skyrim and Portal 2 all for less than 20 sheets. I say god damn!
would recommend to everyone.
really looking forward to it. Got Spelunky as well. But there were another 8 or 9 games in my basket at one point so I'm quietly proud of my restraint.
I need to get a pc that can play games
only got Walking Dead: 400 days and indie point n click Journey Down (to go with all the other point n clicks I've not played yet) for a grand total of £3.
Actually got a bunch of stuff from the xbox sale too:
Skyrim Dragon born
Dust: Elysium Tale
Spider-man: Shattered Dimesions
it's filled a big Theme Hospital shaped hole in my life, right down to not being able to stop the overcrowding snowball and workmen getting jammed on doors and then there's three simultaneous riots and aaaaaaargh.
but I can't bring myself to pay for games in alpha. Even when they're near enough finished and widely lauded. I really need to get over that.
is there any problems with latency? (may get it for my PS3)
it was great. Tried FEZ again, its still pretty boring and when its not being boring its being obtuse. Dont know i if i will continue. Might start Mark Of The Ninja.
Then it got a bit wilfully obtuse for me.
