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

Decided to get mine and my sons Xmas presents so I got two xbox one gta 5 bundles from game. However I've already taken one back and got a replacement because whilst doing the update (so it's ready for my boy Xmas day) one of them shut down after being on for half an hour and refused to turn back on...

Re: Xbox One or PS4, help me decide!

For me it was easy to choose the ps4 (although I will pick up the xbone in a year or two) When ms started all their drm crap, not letting you play pre owned games and monitoring through the kinect, etc. Some great sony exclusives coming up, although most of the games I want like "the evil within" an...

Re: PS3 collecting

I have around 30 ps3 games now and I'm actively collecting for this system as the games are getting dirt cheap.

Re: Atari Star Wars in the wild

At the arcade on the sea front of herne bay (whitstable) They still have Daytona (dual screen setup for two player) and house Of the dead as well as some others I can't remember. A lot of the seaside arcades have the old machines but don't bother with Margate as it's all closed down and houses board...

Re: What game have you COMPLETED this week

Few days ago finished metro last light (ps3) Great story and I loved the shooting and stealth in this game, taking out Light bulbs to hide in the shadows to take out your enemies and silent kills from behind is All fun but I thought the game was a bit short and trying to find enough air filters Whil...

Re: Pick a Franchise and give it to a new developer

Some of the above posts are great ideas, but since sega bought atlus and said they can
Use their ip's there has not even been a hint of a new game from them.

Would have thought we would have had something as I would love to see
What atlus would have done with Alex kid.

Re: Video game shops in Spain.

I remember seeing a gamestop or two, there is a mall about half an hour out from Malaga towards Almuneca, but they are probably everywhere. Prices are much higher than the UK, games are also in Spanish. Probably not worth the effort. Thanks for the info, maybe I won't get any bargains if that's the...

Being an older gamer

I watched a video by happyconsolegamer who turned 40 this week which made me think. Being 34 years old and a gamer/collector does get some strange looks and comments from others when they find out, especially from my workmates. Does anyone else find this happens to them ? ,I just wonder as I find th...

Game bugs/glitches (best ones)

I've been playing through Skyrim on ps3 for a while now and even bought all the DLC (something I never do) because I love it so much. However, the game has loads of bugs/glitches even after the patch but not all of them are bad. A couple of good ones I've found are the platter-wall glitch, which is ...

Re: The best PlayStation?

PS1 was a great console, deserved it's success. PS2 was an awful console which ended up with an amazing library of games. PSP was ok, nothing special so sold it after a few months. PS3 is a dogs dinner with some very over rated games,the pad spoils what good games it has. Hopefully PS4 will be a fr...

Re: The best PlayStation?

What PlayStation do you like the most? Not like slim models or anything, just ps1, ps2 and ps3. Has to be PS2 for me! Good topic, crotea, despite the instant attempt at a derailment. Although the mighty PS2 had such a healthy crop of great games I think for me the PSone is my fave Playstation overa...
