    Weird. I was thinking of starting a thread like this only this morning. Then I was distracted by a rasher sandwich.

    Anyway, I'm limiting myself to low-demand titles at the moment, so that I can play some of the big AAA titles when I build my new pc in a couple of months. To be more precise, I'm mainly playing Invisible Inc. and I love it! Great tactical gameplay, nice art style and pure stealth mechanics. Recommended.

    Heroes of the Storm. Been playing pretty hardcore for weeks but it's now at the point where I'm not 'disinterested', just... 'Allowing' myself to play other stuff :pac:



    Sadly, my old AMD 6900 can't handle a handful of settings on Ultra, even though I hear HoS is very GFX friendly in that regard. HoS + Witcher 3 (completed a few weeks ago) are really making me want a new computer.

    EDIT: Actually, that's a little unfair. It can't handle most of these on Ultra "When recording with FRAPS". Seeing as I record 99% of everything I play, though, I guess I forget that little detail at times.

    Cities Skylines and Borderlands Pre-Sequel Claptrap DLC (both from Steam sale).

    Playing some stuff on other consoles (outside the scope of this thread) :o

    Raceroom Racing Experience has been on the top of my list after getting a Logitech G27. If you have a steering wheel you have to try that game :D
    Couldnt find a game that matches the feedback that game gives to the steering wheel, projects cars, grid ac all have meh feedback compared to RRE.

    Assetto Corsa and stock car extreme both have superior force feedback and physics, but RR is a decent sim all the same.

    Didn't like ac at all. Might have the physics but not the feel :) also took me over an hour to launch the bloody game as it thought that my 3d TV was 2 monitors.

    Your setting your g27 up wrong if you think it doesn't have " the feel " ,have you used the recommended settings ? Each SIM requires different settings for your wheel or you will feel nothing or completely inaccurate ffb.

    Finished the Witcher 3 after 98 hours at the weekend, and really didn't know what to do with myself for a little while :P

    Quickly recovered though, and have been playing Star Wars: The Old Republic and Football Manager 2015. Throw in some Arkham Knight now, and i've all my gaming needs covered.


  • #2


    Arkham City, BioShock and Chivalry, with a little Civ V here and there

    Kinda just okay whatever I feel like these days

    Wolfenstein The Old Blood at home and an XCom Long War run at lunch in work :D

    To be fair, after having to arse around for ages with actually trying to get the game to work, I got into a race, I did a couple of laps in it, didn't like it and went and asked for a refund on steam. It was just too much of a hassle of as a game.

    I had to do no configuration for RRE. It just worked and feedback from car/road/speed/slip/transfer worked perfect.

    Been playing The Evil Within, but restarted chapter 4 because I missed some stuff, and apparently instead of running the **** away, you can fight creepy long haired spider lady. I tried several times, but she instagibs me as soon as she gets close.

    Gave Valkyria Chronicles a quick go too, seems fun

    Bootin' up some super hexagon, and just installed Metro LL but dropped it when a friend asked me to join him on Ark. Was getting set up for Fallout 1 but got distracted by the other games :rolleyes:


  • #2


    Passed a 1000 hours on csgo. Oh dear.


  • #2


    Magicka 2 on LAN with a friend is great fun. Shorter than I might have liked but it's hard to beat waves of magical destruction and fake fantasy Swedish.


  • #2


    Been playing Grid Autosport, Skyrim, Hitman: Absolution, Shadow of Mordor and Cities Skylines over the past week, I've been sick so had loads of time. Cities is a blackhole that sucks you in and destroys an entire day without you even noticing!


  • #2


    Fallout 1 at home. All the Fallout 4 buzz made me want to go back to where it all started. There's also the whole Batman being ****ed thing stopping me from getting that in the meantime. :o

    Heroes of the Storm in work at lunch. My first MOBA and I have to say, I'm quite enjoying it.

    that's od, I didn't need to do any major setup. It's unfortunate, AC really does have the best physics and FFB, I don't know what went wrong for you.

    I got Assassin's Creed Unity recently, I've found it pretty enjoyable, the game mechanics are much improved on the previous versions. Still not mad about it though, I haven't really gotten mad into an AC game since the second one. Don't think I'll continue with the series, the more modern the setting gets the less interest I seem to have in it.

    Been playing Dirt rally since the FFB update and it's good fun too. The FFB finally gives some feedback so I can get some idea what the car is doing.

    As always a week doesn't go by without spending time in AC, it's by far and away the most fun I've had in any game. Went past 500 hours in it last week. Looking at my play time in other games I haven't put more than 30 hours into any other game.

    Assetto Corsa
    Stock Car Extreme
    Dirt Rally
    Heroes of the storm
    Played some plants v zombies garden warfare too, forgot how fun that is.

    Just bought Borderlands 1&2 (and all their DLC) for $6 via Humblebundle, so aye, that (and a few upcoming cinema trips) should keep me entertained for a week ;)

    Mass Effect, Homeworld, and playing SWTOR and FM2015 lately as well?

    You're a man after my own heart Kiith.:o

    I've always missed the days of playing Gran Turismo 3 on the PS2.

    I liked the career-mode element to it of buying, selling and upgrading cars as much as anything.

    Is AC purely a sim or does it have those sorts of progression mechanics as well?


    I'm a bit between games at the moment.

    I'm itching to get at Witcher 3 but I'm halfway through a hardware upgrade and with a new GPU, Windows 10 on the horizon, no space on my drives, I don't really know what to do with myself.:P

    So many games I'm waiting to play as prettily as possible - Wolfenstein, Tome Raider 2013, Witcher 3, Metro, Deus Ex:Human Resources, Grey Goo, Dishonoured.

    I've been trying to play through the SC2 campaign again recently and I had a hankering for some Heroes of Might and Magic as well so I picked up VI in the sale.
    The latter scratched the itch a bit, but it just doesn't quite seem to have the magic of 2,3 and 5.

    Started playing Resident Evil remaster, restarted it after encountering the issue with using Chris, stopped to play Splatoon so now have to start back into RE

    Finished that when the remastered version came out. Great game to re visit. Can't wait for RE2 and 3 remastered. I think they were the highlights and best of RE franchise.

    Hmm, I had been eyeballing Resident Evil 4 in the sale myself, apparently it's quite decent?

    ****ing killed her (for now!) :D

    About a hundred deaths mind you, but I did it. Feeling all proud of myself :)

    Massively overrated series. The combat is s chore.

    I'm all over the place with my gaming since I mostly play my PC games during the week and my consoles at the weekend (I'm at the girlfriend's then)

    I actually played all of these over the course of the past 2 weeks - I can't seem to sit still with one;

    PC;
    Cities: Skylines
    South Park: The Stick of Truth (finished today)
    LEGO Jurassic World (just bought today)
    Football Manager 2015
    Rollercoaster Tycoon
    Bioshock
    Wasteland 2
    Fallout 3
    Fallout New Vegas

    Console;
    Halo: The Master Chief Collection
    FIFA 15
    Mass Effect (via the Xbox One)
    Toy Soldiers 1 & 2 (via the Xbox One)

    I'm a happy gamer :D

    The combat is s chore.

    In singleplayer maybe, considering the whole content is telegraphed. It's in multiplayer where you see combat shine and can appreciate the layers to it that you wouldn't in singleplayer. Playing Platinum matches in MP is as much of a blast as it is tense and frustrating. Spent a solid few months playing it hardcore because it was hard to put down.

    It still has a dedicated community and players all these years later. Even when I played the most linear style possible (vid), it was a barrel of fun. Now, go make a melee Krogan and start backhanding husks into space :D I also used to think ME3 was stale (combat wise) but ME3:MP made me realize that during my time playing through ME1-2-3, I didn't even know there were ammo / biotic combinations etc. If you want to succeed in MEMP, you need to know how to utilize all facets of combat, differences between races, weapon combos etc



    As for me, hit about level 26 in Borderlands on day one - very enjoyable, though knowing I have Borderlands 2 installed, I kinda want to just skip ahead.
    I had been eyeballing Resident Evil 4 in the sale myself, apparently it's quite decent?

    Despite being the original 'divide' between old-school scary puzzlers and arcade shooters, RE4 is definitely more than decent. Pumped endless hours into it (and mercenaries - probably the reason why I love above mentioned ME3:MP as it's a similar format).

    If you like RE - and think you can stomach one that won't try to scare you, then definitely add it to your collection. When you're done enjoying the playthroughs, unlockables, extra content etc - be sure to turn your attention to the wealth of mods. I'm sure most if not all good pre-HD mods will apply to HD.

    RE4 will give you a new appreciation for a) chainsaws and b) ovens :pac:

    RE4 is pretty good imo, does the over the shoulder view really well, decent replay value too and it was before the story went completely off the wall!


  • #2


    I picked up FFXIII on Steam a while back and kicked it off this week. Only about 5 hours in but very much enjoying it so far.

    I also recalled buying the little gem that is Gunpoint in a previous sale. Fired it up for 15 mins last night and switched it off about 90 minutes later.
