Re: What are you currently playing?

I bought Trials Fusion (PS4) yesterday and I am enjoying it very much so far. I used to play a LOT of Elasto Mania back in the day (hundreds and hundreds of hours) so I've always like the side-view motorcross racing games.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I've been playing a bit of Tales of Xillia ( PS3 ) lately, but to be honest I think I'm really close to just giving up on it. I just don't enjoy it that much for some reason, will probably give it another shot or two before I decide. Also I just got Infamous: Second Son ( PS4 ) today so I will be st...

Re: Your one favourite game. Any format. Ever.

Even with the love I have for retro gaming from all ages I have to say: The Last of Us ( PS3 ) I still think of TLoU every day. The story just really clicked with me for some reason. My first playthrough is something I'll always remember. honorable mentions: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night ( PS1 ...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I just went and fetched my copy of Infamous: Second Son ( PS4 ) that I preordered a few weeks back. It's not that I thought it would be a hard game to get a hold of a copy of but I've been buying more and more new games as preorders with store pickup lately, mainly so I know that I can get it on rel...

Re: The XBOX ONE / PS4 discussion thread

Had to stand in the freezing cold (I'm swedish) from 7am til the store opened at 10am to get my hands on one. But I'm REALLY glad that I decided to, as the store only g...

I just noticed theres a new Kairosoft game out for Android, Pocket Harvest! Link

I've been a big fan of their games since Game Dev Story came out so I'm quite exited about this new one.

Re: Uncharted coming to PS4

Amazing. The Uncharted games are definitely top5 material for the ps3. And considering how good Naughty Dog managed to make their games look on the PS3 I can't wait for my jaw to drop with this one. I still cant believe how good The Last of Us looks considering the outdated hardware it was released ...

Re: What are you listening to right now?

The Ting Tings - Hit Me Down Sonny Not sure how I would explain the genre, but I like it. It's my opinion that there's good music to be found in pretty much any genre, and this is out of my regular listening genres. http://open.spotify.com/track/54Vpi2OIl1DllDYWqlOa6h http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I watched Winter's Bone (2010) yesterday after picking it up in a BluRay bargain bin. I liked it a lot, I give it a 4/5.

Re: What are you currently playing?

I'm also learning to play Dwarf Fortress (PC). I have the basics down but there's a lot of content in that game and it's not very self-explanatory. Still, can't help but love it! I can't help but think it would be better with some more advanced type of graphics (and yeah, I do use a tileset ofcours...

Well that's you problem right there.

But do you have Direct X installed? also have you tried changing compability mode or something? I'm running Windows 7 myself and it's working flawlessly for me.

You mean for phones/tablets? Not sure how well the controls would work for that. But I heard he was porting it to the Ouya, so that should mean an Andoid port is on the way. Just hope it doesn't get a cease and desist before that.
