  1. Hey guys, just thought I'd pop my head in to wish you luck with the new website. I'll try to visit the forums on a regular basis and get posting again. I have my Force Awakens day one tickets and I'm hyped for the new film. Exciting times ahead! I have missed you nutcases.
  2. Heard this and thought of you. ;)

  3. Hey guys. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. How you all doing? Movie: None. Lots of disappointments. TV Series: Dexter. Watched every season on Netflix and loved it. Album: Rudimental - Home. Lots of great music this year, but this is the stand out album for me. Anime: Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack on Titan). Production IG continue to make great series. Watch it free - http://www.crunchyroll.co.uk/attack-on-titan Book: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Please read this book if you haven't already. It is a geeky gamers dream come true. Highly recommended. (Cheating a bit I know as it came out last year) http://readyplayerone.com Game: Animal Crossing New Leaf. I bought this and a 3DS XL for my daughter for her birthday back in August, because they have played every AC game so far. They got me to try it out one day and I have played it every single day since.
  4. Elder Scrolls Online. It will probably be the only game I will play for a few years, but it will depend on my impressions this beta weekend.
  5. Might not even bother getting any of the new consoles, and this is the first time I've ever said that considering I've had pretty much every console since the Atari. Steam and The Humble Bundle seem more than adequate these days, but if I do it will be a PS4. I've only just realised how much I've been missing out on not being subscribed to Playstation Plus all this time, as I didn't realise it gave you so many games each month. Feel like a bit of a pratt tbh.
  6. Yeah, I'm feeling like I need to play Citadel too, been reading some really great things about it. Cheesy but funny and a nice ending to the series. I need to play Omega too while I'm at it.
  7. No, not at all. QTE's are few and far between, and when they are used they feel well placed.
  8. I finished Tomb Raider to 100% yesterday, and as a long time fan who has played every single Tomb Raider game, does this game satisfy my "tomb raiding" needs? No. Is it a great game? Yes. The environment is the star in this game. The island is very well put together and extremely beautiful. Ship and plane wrecks, storms, howling winds, makeshift towns made from junk, ancient temples and atmosphere are abound. Getting around is fun, with Lara's athletic ability's coming into full force, jumping and climbing and chucking herself all over the place. Lara herself moves very naturally and feels 'right'. They did a great job on the mocap. Combat set pieces are satisfying, and the AI has definately improved. They throw grenades and shoot with great accuracy, making it a good challenge and you definately feel bad ass after a long shoot out. The addition of the bow is very welcome, and using it to take out enemies stealthily is great fun. The RPG elements of gaining xp and ugrading your weapons keep the progression at a good steady pace, so you really feel like you are learning all your skills along the way. The story is good and fits the environment, but you don't really feel any connection to your fellow stranded shipmates other than reading their journals that you find lying around. It had a good ending, The tombs in this game are small physics based affairs that take 5 minutes to complete and are extremely easy. Gone are the huge tombs that take an hour to figure out how to open one door that we know and love, and instead we get a few pathetic excuses for tombs that very much dissapoint. This game is more about exploring caves, and feeling claustrophobic and that sense of the unkown rather than actual treasure hunting, but I guess as this is more of a survival game and the fact that Lara is just starting out and hasn't hit her stride, it can be somewhat forgiven in the context of a reboot. Hopefully in the next game they will have bigger, harder, longer tombs. I think Tomb Raider is a fantastic game, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and fans of Lara will love how well they have portrayed her progression into badassery. It is well worth your time and highly recommended.
  9. Are you selling all of your Star Wars Christmas tree decorations?
  10. So the reviews are coming in thick and fast, and they seem to be averaging around 9/10 across the board. So glad it's getting great reviews and I can't wait for my CE to pop through the door in the next couple of days. This is easily the best review of it so far... (This BBCode requires its accompanying plugin to work properly.)
  11. Actually, mim encouraged me to look at it and has helped me out a bit. Just curious as to what you thought of it. ;) First mmo I've played. Part fun and frustrating, but the learning curve from the first toon has helped a bit w/the others (have 4 going simultaneously atm).

  12. Haven't really played it much apart from the beta. Was going to try and get into it but I've been sidetracked by other things. From what I have played (only about 5 hours total) it seems like an enjoyable enough standard fare mmo. You would be better asking Lynk or Mimartin as they play it alot. :)

  13. You try SWTOR? DLed it for F2P about 2 weeks ago. If nothing else.....it proved my PC needed serious upgrading. May try a short term sub. Just wondering if you had any thought on game.
