    Yeah excellent game, came across by accident playing the 1st as it was on the psn free, so when the 2nd was coming out had to get it.

    I did and didn't like the ending if you know what I mean, kinda puts closure on that story, but obviously it's not my fav ending.

    The 10 hour trial is up if you have ea access.

    I don't like it it's so slow and clunky the passing and player switching is awful as well. I'll still no doubt end up buying it

    Yeah my nephews mentioned it, but I'll just leave it till next week, I don't have EA Access and can't be arsed making up accounts and believe you pay for it too, think its not much and you can cancel but not fussed about getting it early anyway.

    Not sure if this is an appropriate thread so apologies if not. I seen an old vectrex(anyone remember these?-google it if you don’t) at a market in really good nick with about a dozen games. Goi g for £1300. Some classic games were to be played on this

    Microsoft shuts down 4 studios, including the talented Tango gameworks in Japan, What a * joke.

    I'd love one too. Actually spotted one boxed at the Barras a few weeks ago. There is a retro gaming place in the indoor bit.
    I never checked the price or that though.

    Playing Avatar, it's actually pretty decent.

    Graphics are lovely.

    I did like the film and also Avatar land in Orlando including the rides.

    Some missions might be a bit repetitive but that's the same with every game now.

    Got the weans this and it is stunning looking. Will get round to it. Ive only seen the 1st film too and feel I should watch the next before starting. Far Cry with an avatar skin Ive heard but that appeals to me.

    Same. I hadn't been for over ten years. Was surprised there was as much as there was still there. Was funny trying to explain to my two sons that I used to come every other weekend. Think they quite enjoyed the sights after the initial shock. I mind the ps1 games purchases, one time when I was there they put the shutters down as the polis were close by and me along with a load of other shoppers just got shut in til the coast was clear.

    So what’s it like now? I can’t imagine it without the physical media stuff.

    It was amazing back in the day. Those early 2000 was some era.

    A lot of the outdoor stalls are away. Made me think there was going to be nothing but a lot if the stalls inside still in operation. Get along for a trip down memory lane. I wanted to have a late breakfast in the rumbling tum but there was a wait for a table and I wasn't going to do that.

    The state of the games coming out on xbox, and the amount of pc port indie games that are 'work in progress' ie broken.
    Might indicate that games are getting hard as * to make and keep up to date with patches.
    I said to my mate yesterday that its not as easy as drawing a picture, he complains about destiny 2, i would argue that alot of planning,thought man hours and money goes into keeping that going, only for the consumer to be dissatisfied and potentially choose not to buy the dlc. In some respects I am spoiled for choice but I was naeive to think that games would just keep getting better and better and not have it collapse. Thats the state of gaming, i might need to go and get a life instead.

    Speaking of broken works in progress

    Is anyone playing Manor Lords?



    Quite a nice village builder
