  1. Titanfall 2 - out today!

    Shit, this really wasn't anywhere on my radar at all - being a single player gamer I hadn't really paid much attention to the campaign. However, the universal praise being heaped on it means it's going to have to get picked up at some point now . Sigh, this has been a very expensive year for me and gaming!
  2. Red Dead Redemption 2

    A prequel would be fine, but to be honest there's so much scope for unique stories in the old west that I'd rather prefer something new. Marsden's tale was told perfectly, and I don't need to play his past. Although obviously, I will if needs be
  3. The Xbox One Thread - 'Jump Ahead'

    Had the same problem. However, I redeemed them via the store on my PC, and it all worked out fine. Should work the same for you
  4. Illustration Club

    Made it myself, from various images all merged together, but it kind of works well for my purposes. If you want a copy of it, let me know and I'll happily email it over to you!
  5. Do it...I'm currently replaying all the originals and they hold up amazingly well. Brilliant fun.
  6. The Xbox One Thread - 'Jump Ahead'

    Is this a common thing...was trying to redeem a code via the store on the console and it just kept on giving me an error message. worked first time when I redeemed on the PC, but just seemed a bit odd.
  7. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    No painting, but I thought I'd share the cast of my latest figure - Poseidon. Got my first little batch a couple of days ago and hastily stuck one together. It's possibly my fave thing I've commissioned
  8. Not sure where we're putting these things, but it seems appropriate to put it out here - If anyone wants a 360 Gears of War code, just give me a PM. I've got the Ultimate version, so this'll never be used Edit: And it's gone
  9. Squadron 42/Star Citizen

    Well, as much as I don't like the man, I can't fault Roberts' ambition. If things like that do prove to be what the end game does, then it's going to be a pretty awesome thing indeed... Still glad I didn't put money into this potential folly, but I do like that video very much!
  10. Good stuff . I'm always impressed at how the Unreal engine weathers the ages to be honest...I was never completely bowled over when the original came out all those years ago, but it's aged fantastically well - as has the game itself. Must have played the original campaign 5 or 6 times over the years and I think I enjoy it more with each run through!
  11. How's Gears of War 3 playing on BC now by the way? Just going through 2 at the moment, and it feels pretty damn good - it does struggle a little when the shit hits the fan, but I don't think any more than it did on the 360 (although I might be wearing the rose-tinted specs - haven't played it since original release). I did read on DF that Gears 3 and Judgement suffered a bit more from slowdown etc.
  12. The Xbox One Thread - 'Jump Ahead'

    For some reason I get a Wipeout vibe from that . Change the orange to an electric blue and it'd be spot on!
  13. Got to admit, this is the sort of thing that's pushing me very much onto team Xbox at the moment...I've very glad I have multiple HDMI sockets on my TV, and a whole load of space underneath it's always been the case before that whilst I've had a 360 and a PS at the same time (on and off - last gen saw me buy and sell them multiple times in a stupid attempt to 'save' money...sigh), I've always had to faff around with taking out/putting in the cables whenever I wanted to play something on either of the machines. These days I just can press a button and I get all the gaming goodness... Just so happens that the time's just about perfect for the Xbox to get it's share of the fun!
  14. Oh man, I'm sorted for ages - have all the Gears games too! Number 4 is busying itself installing now I'm a ruined man.
  15. I had a quick dabble with it . Only played it through once before - same with Halo 2, so it's all good. I kind of agree with the original...some slightly odd decisions when it comes to the graphic upgrades...the gameplay is as good as ever though! It's pretty amazing that all this lot cost me £7 though...absolute steal EDIT: It's basically a Halo overload, and what with accidentally buying Halo 5 yesterday, I've basically gone mental.
