      I got a SNES classic for Christmas and I have been playing all the classics I use to play when I was a teenager (Mario Kart, Zelda, Earthbound, FF3). It is worth the money to get one of those little systems if you can get your hands on it and enjoy playing retro games.

      Played on one of those re released Mega Drives classics last year and it still very much has the charm as I'm sure the SNES classic has. That said, it's best played on smaller screens as it was slightly jarring playing it on the big hd tv!

      Played CoD WW2 over Christmas. Entertaining game but the campaign somewhat lacked that the story arc/Spielbergean feel that made the original WW2 first person shooters like the early CoD's or Medal of Honor so rewarding. Never really felt that you were taking part in something as significant as the overthrow of the Nazi's. Also, the tendency for the game to move to a cut scene at the climax of a level was quite irritating.

      Best game I've played in a LONG time. Even with the early release growing pains.

      Yeah it has a charm to it and they are pretty easy to MOD to add more games to it so I am looking forward to trying that once I finish the games that are already on it. I agree on the WW2 campaign, i just find it find it so short and I know they focus a lot on the online play. I got WW2 after not getting the last couple of releases because it was turning into Halo/Destiny type game with the weapons and flying around. I enjoy the game and comeback to the basics in weapons and game play.

      Yeah - not having any of that futuristic nonsense either. Either modern warfare or before, preferably World War 2. That's my preference. Agreed that the campaign felt a little short as well. So much more they could have done with it. Hopefully we'll get more games retracing World War 2.

      Finished Horizon Zero Dawn.

      Late to it, I know.
      Got it on sale.

      Did all the side missions, Cauldrons, errands, before completing the main story.
      All in about 70 hours of quality game time. Found the last few main missions I kept expecting each one to be the last.
      Which made it kind of drag near the end. Plus I'd got the ancient armour by the time I did the final mission so I was nearly
      invincible at that stage.

      Great game and story. Enjoyed strolling around taking down machines as much as the main story itself.
      A world ahead of what Andromeda was. Definitely one of the top games of 2017.

      Nice twist at the end to line up a second game.
      Some playing parts that annoyed me. Like not being able to swap shoulder view for taking out enemies,
      but otherwise a great and enjoyable game.

      Glad you liked it mate, I've uninstalled to make space for other stuff recently but thought it was brilliant. Gameplay wise just very very fun. Not bought Frozen Wilds or whatever the DLC is called yet but may grab it on sale in the future. Looks like more of the same really, which can't be bad.

      I'm trying to finish some games before the 2018 release schedule really kicks off. I've already been tempted by Monster Hunter World, but really need to finish both Witcher 3 expansions before diving into yet another time consuming RPG. Also bought X-Com 2 on sale over January, played the first one to death on PC and loved it. It's a turn based strategy game that follows the events of the first one, after an alien race has invaded and conquered earth and now runs the world through a proxy global government. You lead a human guerrilla movement and it is possibly the most masochistic game out there. Your actions during missions are governed by RNG (random number generator), which throws up some unlikely scenarios as your highly trained military operative wildly fires wide of the alien they were standing right next to. Only really had time for a couple of hours gaming on the weekend recently so the back catalogue is taking over...

      Gone back to Assassin Creeds series finishing up playing Syndicate. So far it has been better than last AC game I played in AC Unity. Really enough the setting in London and the fighting system

      I’m currently playing Origins, took me a while to get into it because the combat is completely changed and quite hard to get used to but I think I’ve got it down now... and enjoying the game too now.

      Recently been putting together a little bit of a gaming/nerd setup... this is it so far...





      Far too much time on my hands  :lmao:

      A LOT of NBA 2K18 lately. Been hard pressed to find me consistently on any other sports game besides FIFA probably for the last decade, but finally invested some time into the MyCareer part of it and I'm loving it. Living the dream of being a menacing post up player dropping 30/15 double doubles on the regular, Portland hero, all that jazz :D

      Made the mistake of introducing my almost 6 year old into Minecraft a couple of weeks back.  Don't think I've had a conversation with him that hasn't been about it since.

      He hasn't got a console because I think he's too young for that level of involvement so it's just on a tablet or the PI, but it obviously means I've got to play on my phone and 'join in'.  Next thing is he's watching tutorials on how to build all sorts.  Digital Lego!

      Superb stuff!  Looks great that - I dream of having my own cave!

      Rocket League for 2 years now. Love it!


      Agree TRM, great gameplay but little mission variety and not much substance to the story.

      I currently have an endless steam library to get through, and yet whenever I get time to play something the past few weeks I've been unable to click anything but Rocket League. If you haven't heard of it its basically that Top Gear episode with the car football turned up to 11, and its bloody awesome.

      Sorry to quote an old post - do you still play?

      Hi mate sorry only just seen this.

      I've fallen out of it recently with a few other games taking up what little gaming time I have at the moment, but I think I've got you on PSN so if I see you playing maybe I'll jump in! Unless you're playing on PC/Xbox?

      It is damn addictive once you get into it!

      It's not so bad. Minecraft has a Pegi 7. My son was playing it around 3. He's 6 now and he's finished Legend of Zelda breath of the wild on his own. I don't think it is any more harmful for a 6 year old than a 30 year old. It has puzzles which help problem solving abilities and it has been proven that games improve reaction times without loss of accuracy. My opinion as long as it is in moderation it is actually an educational thing. As long as it is not crime or gore such as grand theft auto, resident evil or Mortal Kombat etc... I think it is fine. The tutorials are very annoying, I literally banned them until I got my son a pair of children's headphones.

      Holy sh*t, how I’ve missed it. God of war starts brilliantly, hope it continues down the same path.

      I started the Last of Us a couple of years back but never finished it which is criminal given how crazy people are about it. I've always been meaning to get back to it and it's on my bucket list of things to do 'at home'.

      As for the Uncharted series? If Uncharted 1 is already one of your favourite games ever then you're in for a real treat. The first one is brilliant but having recently played 2 and 3 once again I have to say they blow the first one out of the water. Number 4 is stupendous as well - played it at the start of last year and it's maybe a bit darker/personal than the previous installments but no less captivating and thrilling. If push came to shove I'd say number 2 is the greatest of them all, purely because it set the standards for the next two games, which in fairness, they matched. Great characters and most importantly stunning set pieces and settings, especially the Himalayas. A game you could play over and over again.

      Uncharted is unreal, played all of them each one brilliant.

      Not played Last of Us although I loved The Witcher 3 and both expansions
