It's good but like all these games there's almost too much that if I try to do anything like everything I'll end up getting bored and not completing it, like Fallout NV or RDR.

Bye, logger!

My life is currently a disaster area at the moment so it's good to have somewhere to escape to.


I just remembered my favourite moment so far, when it started to snow.

I've been rather a slave to the PS3 in recent weeks. And despite my erstwhile indifference to FPS games in general, I have, over this past month, been variously tackling Dead Space, Homefront, and Call Of Duties: Modern Warfare 3, World At War, and Black Ops. And thoroughly enjoying my little self.

Homefront in particular I have found especially absorbing, despite the less than glowing reviews it seemed to have garnered, and the fact that its 'new' price tag plummeted rather rapidly, which would normally have spelt "steer well clear" to me, but at 4 pre-owned (and barely double that new), I think it's a feckin' bargain, and well worth a look-see. From what I've read about it online, it's not an especially groundbreaking FPS, and probably fairly short-lived in terms of gameplay time, but it's its premise and plotline that make it a worthwhile purchase in my view. I mean... four quid. I says give it a go. Here endeth the lecture. wink.gif

Oh, yeah, and Ghostbusters. I blummen luuurrrrved Ghostbusters. Fun fun fun.

I've had LA Loire for over a year now, and still haven't played past the training mission... I suck.

Oh it is such fun. You're missing out.

Rua is quite right. L.A.Noire has been one of the best things I've ever played on a Playstation to date.

Has anyone played Quantum Conundrum yet? I played the demo and really liked it. I'm definitely going to pick it up when I get paid.

Already downloaded the demo, hoping to give it a spin this week sometime.

It's well worth a look. It has a great art style, is funny, has an interesting main mechanic and the puzzles are incredibly satisfying to solve.

I've been meaning to pick up Homefront cheap, thanks for the reminder! I picked up the Saboteur myself for around 4 and platinumed it just yesterday. It's rough around the edges, unpolished and a bit clunky , but I really enjoyed playing it; and despite the main characters awful accent I really liked him too.
I'd definitely recommend it if you can find it used (though no open world game will ever beat Just Cause 2 for pure fun...)

I'd noticed you've been steaming through the Saboteur trophy set at a rate of knots this past week or so - the 100% prompted me to get back into the game again today and start cracking on with it properly! I know what you mean about its clunkiness and rough edges, but you're right, despite all that it is still immensely enjoyable. I've loved the general premise since Day 1 though, being what prompted me to buy the game in the first place. And as a free-roaming walk/drive-through of one of my favourite cities, well that's just an added plus! smile.gif


I'll let you know what I think about QC soon, hopefully - sounds promising already.

Yeah it was quite fun getting all the trophies, though it did turn into a grind getting all the freeplay targets towards the end, there's over 1000 of them!
You've also reminded me that I've been meaning to go back and replay Ghostbusters after it got patched. Such a fun game, I think after I finish QC and Bayonetta I'll start on that. Or Code Veronica HD which I've still not played...

I laughed out loud at the Call of Duty trailer before Batman.

"From the makes of Black Ops, comes Black Ops II"

It's like they're acknowledging that they're just releasing the same game over and over. To those people who say "I'm only buying it for the multiplayer anyway", enjoy your 40 expansion pack.

I've just started the boss battle with The End (managed to get the Moss camo from him so far). Such an amazing fight; just a shame constraints at the time mean the area us split into 3 with load screens for each.

I've downloaded some new Skyrim mods but I've found a working copy of an old game I used to love and I can't recall the last time I was this excited to play a game.
