0 is actually the perfect place to jump in - its a prequel to the first game so bar a couple of little Easter eggs here and there for long time fans of the series its very easy to understand story wise. Plus the remake of the first game is getting an English release (also on PS4) this summer, so its the perfect way to get new people interested in the series.

Finally managed to save a bit - with a little help from money at Christmas to order a PS4 from Game. In particular this bundle for the games and not the Now TV bit; http://www.game.co.uk/en/ps4-1tb-triple ... ss-1775592. Go online and attempt to put it in the basket and it says temporarily out of stock, go to the online chat and the agent has no idea when it will be back in :? Luckily, I'm in between work at the minute, so I can check daily. Missing the Playstation fix at the minute (aside from the PS2). My PS3 broke just before Christmas; not powering up and was quoted £80 to repair :x

Well done, you'll love it. Sony have nailed it this gen with the PS4, for me everything feels just right. I always felt like something was missing with the PS3.

For anyone that's interested in such twaddle. PS4 owners please don't start freaking at me - I own and enjoy both machines.

That link is a bit out of date. The PS4 outsold the Xbox One in November & December in the US.

Guilty Gear Xrd, now with 100% more Baiken.

Now give us Bridget, ArcSys, pretty please.

EDIT: Looks like Maximilian approves, lol. This year is looking amazing for fighting games.

I'm about 5 hours in and it feels like a real labour of love. The overall feel of this world is wonderful - the relationship between you and Trico is beautiful. However, there are issues... the controls just don't feel tight enough for me and Trico often doesn't respond to what I want him to do. Also, it's very A-B level design with no alternate routes or collecting on offer. My biggest complaint though is the camera... it just feels too zoomed in and often I can't tell what's going on in key moments. Overall, it's a great game that just lacks the polish it needs to be a masterpiece.

I've had the odd issue with the camera but for me its been no more than a mid annoyance on a few occasions. Personally I'm finding the level design a plus point, sometimes its nice to not be pulling my hair out trying to work out where to go... although you'd be amazed to learn I've actually gotten lost more than once :lol:
I would agree that Trico can be difficult to control at times - I guess he's quite an unruly big dog/bird. :D

I'm sold on Let It Die, game for me feels like it could easily have been sold instead of F2P. I'm still relatively early in, but none of the micro transaction stuff feels necessary, at all. And Uncle Death is a fun character.

Another Overwatch event incoming, very nice skins for D.Va and Mei (finally). Wonder how long Blizzard can keep this kind of pace up though...

devs seem to be getting good with content updates now but i guess thats where micro transaction. cash goes, halo 5 has great updates and battle front is ment to get content thats not paid dlc too so i guess it's good buisness to pour resoucres into content

Midway Arcade Origins added to Xbox One's backward compatibility list for retroheads who are interested.

I genuinely have a Rocket League addiction. I get restless if I don't play it every day. I have squeezed in titanfall 2 in between which I love but playing 3v3 RL with friends on mic is just so much damn fun!
