    Got a rare passout from parenting this afternoon, and I think I'm off to see this. Quick question, for those who've seen it: does it have those kinda bad chroma key scenes all over it? The last few DC movies have been terrible for that, really pulling you out of the picture.

    Do/did your parents game?

    This a great thread. A most enjoyable read. My dad had a bit of an interest a long time ago, but nothing to speak of since about the mid-80s. He had this little space invaders clone handheld that he would play: And after that, he got my sister a Mattel Aquarius, that she barely got a look in, as he would hog it pretty much all the time. I remember my mum banning him from it, as he was driving the electricity bill up, apparently. Nightstalker was his jam. I got a Speccy in 1988, but he didn't seem particularly impressed with it, thankfully. I'd have likely not gotten much of a look in, either, had he been seduced by Last Ninja 2 and Chase HQ.

    Episodic gaming: Has it worked?

    The whole idea is nice, but it falls foul of delayed episodes. They tend to be quite short episodes and easily consumed, so the release schedule needs to be adhered to quite tightly. I seem to remember waiting ages for ep2 of Life is Strange. Off the top of my head, the only series I can think of that delivered on the regular was Res Evil Revelations 2. That came out bang on the button every week, but even then, that made me aware that they were just sat on a finished game and released it in bits. Gimme it now, man. I dunno. Maybe it's just not a viable deal for games.

    GTA Online: Gay Tony is back!

    In the early days, that's part and parcel of the whole deal, really. I asked a mate the same thing you did, about levelling up and scoring cash quick, and he simply told me to just play it. Get your head down, and just take your spankings. Vary it up a bit, as well. Missions, races, daily objectives (when you hit level 15, I think), and just piss about and have fun. The big guns will come, but you gotta pay your dues. This new update is great, as far as I've played it. The nightclub is reasonable to purchase, compared to some other businesses, and it's just giving me solo missions to do so far. Feels as close to single player campaign DLC as we've had since launch. Which is great for me, as my regular crew have all but abandoned the cause.
  5. Poor Fallout 4. Its physics engine looks decidedly crummy when put side by side with the other gear.

    Mixes for doing work to

    Nice. I like having piles of music I can ignore whilst getting down to work. I've been using this one for a little while, now. It's a bit more intrusive than yours, but it fits the bill, certainly.

    Everybody's Golf - Sign up in the first post.

    Utterly agreed. EG never really left my PS3 or Vita, and remained staples for literally years. I've never really gelled with other golf games (barring Leaderboard back in the 80s or Kirby's Dream Course, of course*), so when friends try to corral me into the Tiger Woods/Rory McIlroy affairs, I can only smile politely. Just a had few rounds with a mate last night, and it really is nice to have an updated version for the big telly. Will it be worth getting the DLC courses early doors, so I'm not gated out of potential online fun? *Edit: actually I really liked Mario Golf 64, too. When I think about it, there's probably gonna be a whole rash of golfy games I've dug over the years. It's just Tiger Woods I had a problem with.

    Also have added myself. I am getting nothing done at work today. Too excited.

    Retro gaming magazine scan archives

    This made me head over to the Your Sinclair Rock N Roll Years site, but it looks like it's disappeared. This has bothered me more than it perhaps should.
  10. Same here. But I like to do the sneaky thing. makes it more fun.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    This sounds like something an unsolicited caller may say.
  12. And me, if that's ok. Decent of you, kind sir.

    Cheesy Italian Mafia games?

    GTA4, after a promising Eastern European-tinged start, degenerated into some mindless Italian crap, I found. Try that.

    Kids and 18 games

    You should protect your kids. There are billions of people in the world who couldn't give a shit about your kids, so it's your job to do so. They will find a way to play them, but that's fine. As long as they know that they're being naughty and that you disapprove, you're giving them a little extra enjoyment. Forbidden fruit. Would you deprive them of that? I think the real horror is when kids play all the time. They need limits. Boot them out the house with a ball. Make 'em learn some decent social skills.

    What games did you complete? 2016 Edition

    Ok. So far, it's... Dying Light Been dithering around in it for a while now, but decided to polish it off on Tuesday (5th Jan). When souped up, it's a proper joy to just sling yourself around and one-hit most zombies. And if there's a game that can't be improved by a grappling hook, then I don't know nuthing 'bout nuthing. The Fall Had my eye on this last Summer on the WiiU, but it slipped my brain. Found it whilst browsing the PSN store a couple of days ago and finished it last night (7th Jan). Kind of a cross between some existential sci-fi shit and Monkey Island. It's pretty funny too, but a different type of funny to MI. Well worth a punt at eight green queens.
