Finished The Evil Within and it definitely deserves a spot in my top 10 horror games. There were enough twists and turns to keep my on my toes and the story was really unique. The final boss was just incredible. Ace game :tup

Playing Borderlands The Pre-Sequel now and having a blast. Better than the previous two games imo. The whole moon dynamic is great and adds a whole new layer of fun to an already super-fun series. The only thing I would add in is a drivable spaceship. Otherwise, phenomenal game.

I can't wait for that ! Waiting for it to come out on iMac because It doesn't look like it's gonna come out on PS4...


--- IN OTHER NEWS ---

My brand new PS4 kept throwing me out of Destiny because of poor WIFI. it's now on the floor on the other side of my room and it's been connected all evening :lol

I only have the one desk and my imac is on it. I need to get another cheap desk / table tomorrow :P

Finished the new Borderlands. I'm a bit disappointed that it's shorter than the previous two games and that there aren't as many places to explore, but otherwise I loved it.

Killing people by punching them in the face is still the most satisfying thing on Destiny. :)

Got Alien Isolation yesterday, have to take a break though, and I'm not even at the part where you get the first scripted encounter with the Alien  :lol
Love it though, gets my blood pumping, and the ol' horror juices flowing.

Well of I am able to reuse my old 360 tag (haven't used it in 2 years) it'll be cramx4 but I wouldn't mind making it cramx3 only reason I would keep the old if it keeps all my old info.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand I just encountered the Alien for the first time. I'm to scared to even think how the fuck I'm going to get around it!
Got the radar, decided to give my nerves a rest and play some Battlefield 4 :lol:
This game seriously has me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

Yep they really nailed the atmosphere. I shat my pants the first time and crawled up in a locker!  :lol Out of interest, where in the game did you encountere it? Because depending on how you act it can show up earlier.
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

It's an absolute shame that BF4 is just endlessly plagued with problems. Whether it's the glitches, or unplayable servers, it's a brilliant game that's  just ruined. I honestly don't mind playing Titanfall over it, but god damn would I love to actually play BF4.

I couldn't possibly agree any more. I saw my friend playing it one day, and it just so happened to be one of those sessions of gaming that was perfect; no glitches, no lagging, no server issues, nothing went wrong. Naturally, I bought it right after leaving his house. I get to my house and have one of those child-like feelings of excitement when you know you're about to have hours of fun in an amazing new addiction of a game.... Annnnd... Nothing. Despite my PC dwarfing the recommended specs, the game ran like it had molasses in the gears, it was lagging severely despite my (at the time, at least) incredible ISP. Everything was going for me, and yet the game was unplayable, quite literally.

I can't remember many other gaming experiences in which I was so utterly frustrated I wanted to cry and fart on the game and send it to the developers with the fart somehow still lingering. It was horrible... I still try to play it every now and again and it's..."playable". As in, it's technically possible now, but it's one hell of an annoying experience. It's a true shame because, while it's different for everyone, I just happened to have that set-up, or specific file, etc. etc. that makes it just wonky as all hell. I'll go to my friend's...he's playing it fine. It's the most frustrating thing I've ever experienced in gaming.

Lil' rant there.  :lol But it really is mind-boggling to me, how that shit works. Computers are so singular and so unique that people can have the exact same set-up and the same game and they'll have two starkly different experiences and issues.

For now, my gaming time is being spent on Shadow of Morder (Just got the new Dark Hand skin..so awesome; especially since the game is now pretty much glitch free for me) and the new Pokemon OR/AS special demo. I'm about to finish it but it's cool having a pokemon with a Megastone and a few batches of items to send to the full game once I get them. I've also gotta remember to pick up dat SHINY Gengar at Gamestop tomorrow...

After that recent big patch, I've had no problems with it. In fact, it plays better than ever now.

I've almost never not had problems come up, but every other game plays great online, with a few rocky patches thanks to a mediocre Internet service

Yeah I got a PS4 for my birthday with Destiny and after two hours of updating everything via WIFI - it turned out my house WIFI wasn't strong enough to ACTUALLY play the game..... :emo:




But luckily - all i had to do was move my PS4 to the opposite end of my bedroom and now it works fine. :)

I've always thought relying on internet to play a game was a stupid idea.

What if you REALLY want to play Destiny and you have no internet ? I guess you wouldn't buy a PS4 either but that's really unfair.

There should be an option to just play a version of the game with no online multiplayer at all.

There is on Need For Speed Rivals - my other game.

Sure, but Destiny is a game that was always intended to be online-only.

It looks like a game that should be big enough for a big singleplayer plot.

It does have a single player plot. Story was very aloof in this one(you get most of the plot from the cards you can earn and read online) but this is a franchise they have mapped out concept wise for the next ten years.

Then why are we calling it an online-only game if there is singleplayer?

I agree everyone should have internet by now. I don't agree with forcing someone to be online when what they're doing shouldn't require them to be online. When it's singleplayer, you're ALONE, and you want to be. Therefore, you shouldn't have to be online. If your internet is particularly bad, the singleplayer is something to actually do. Not in this case, however.

You can still do public events or help other people out when playing single player. It's pretty dope. I helped out a dude struggling with a wave of enemies, did a dance of awesomeness, and drove away to go do my own mission.

This. You shouldn't have to require a good internet connection to play a single player game.

That really is lame. I mean I find it odd that someone wouldn't have internet but that shouldn't matter anyway. It does suck though when your home internet goes out and you can't even play single player though. An unfortunate situation.

Darksiders II is the free game of the month with Xbox Live, so I tried playing the first one again to have some backstory... and I gave up because it's such a terrible game, but people said II was waaaaaaay better. So far it's merely all right, I guess the jump controls respond properly.. The artwork is lolworthy at times though, the backgrounds are so poorly made that it doesn't make you feel like there's anything beyond whatsoever, it's just poorly painted in background, and I've never personally liked the games aesthetic nor it's character designs. The player camera is annoying as shit too. What an abysmal series. Characters also look ridiculous as well. Don't expect I'll play this long, really just waiting until a friends done recording music before I get back into Alien Isolation.


EDIT: Jesus fuck I can only play Alien Isolation in extremely small sprints. This game scares the everloving fuck out of me.

It dawned on me that last year, I was miffed because Sonic Lost World and Assassin's Creed IV were coming out the same day. I blew about $100 that day. This year? There's two Sonic games. There's two Assassin's Creed games. All four come out the same day.  Frick, I am so glad I have barely any interest in any of them.  :lol Smash is preordered, that's where my budget is going. The Sonic Boom games honestly don't look interesting, I don't have the PS4 for AC:Unity, and I'm iffy on whether I actually want to buy Rogue. But I do find the way the thing that happened last year is happening twice as bad this year hilarious.
