  1. Overwatch - It's Out! [GoT pun goes here]

    Yeah, couldn't resist after reading impressions here. Will be on in the evening and relying on emotes and pre-scripted phrases to get my point across: PSN: meester_cheemp
  2. DOOM!

    I must have this game.
  3. May PS+

    Chuffed with Tropico, had that sitting in my wish list for a while.
  4. Dark Souls II - Release: March 2014

    There's a couple of DLC bosses that IMO are among the highest points of the entire trilogy, but I'd broadly agree with your point. In the main game there are a few memorable ones (Mirror Knight, The Pursuer) but for the most part they're a bit weaker than DS1.

    The gang currently gunning for Peter Tatchell as no-supporter of LGBT rights because e decries homophobia in fundamentalist Islam might hit that dubious note.
  6. Dark Souls 3! Miyazaki Directing! PRAISE THE SUN!

    Cor yeah. Thought I had them down after dealing with their saw wielding brothers, but then the fuckers just lobbed them at me like a cricket ball.
  7. Dark Souls 3! Miyazaki Directing! PRAISE THE SUN!

    Aye. Heavy stuff though.
  8. While you're absolutely right, it works perfectly well on remote play.
  9. Dark Souls 3! Miyazaki Directing! PRAISE THE SUN!

    Jesus FUCKING christ I'm so happy.
  10. Mass Effect 4

    I really like the idea of being the hostile force for once (and it would make sense from a certain POV that post-Reapers some pre-emptive action would be proposed) though with this being Mass Effect I can already imagine the Dances With Wolves/Avatar storyline it develops into.

    A wild predictably depressing comments section appears!
  12. The Guardian's 25 Hardest Games of All Time

    More 'punishing' than difficult in the Ghosts 'n' Goblins way. You can be killed at the highest levels by the lowest enemies if you're not on your game.
  13. Playstation Vita

    If you can get it for £90, go for it. I paid the same a few months back for a Slim in Asda (I guess they were clearing out stock) and haven't looked back, though I freely admit I'm one of these 'can't tell the difference in FPS' types, and watching videos comparing the two screens I can't really work out which I prefer.
  14. Dark Souls II - Release: March 2014

    Yeah, do him. Consider it a mercy - but if you wait until all the DLC is done you get a bit more story.
  15. Tropes Vs. Women In Video Games

    In fact, the Zelda time line is ready-made for a gender swap, particularly going by Wind Waker continuity. I love that this guy went to the effort, and hate that inevitably it's dismissed as a 'waste of time' by people who's time hasn't wasted in any way whatsoever. I spent hours as a kid creating teams in FIFA '96 or whatever to exactly match my school team of the time (even including the couple of girls we had in the side, I remember) - just as much of a 'waste of time' as this, and with just as much impact on people complaining.
