How active was it though?
The game does look fun but I don't want to buy a multi-player game only to find that no-one plays it.

My advice would be to buy EA access for a month I think it's quite cheap. I got a year for £20 so a month should be quite cheap, I'm thinking 3 or 4 quid. You can also check out battlefield 4 fifa 14 and need for speed and others. Tell them porky sent you.

Battlefield 4 is utterly epic and well populated.

Picked up the Master Chief collection on impulse, at least it looks good value for money!

There are a ton of people playing PvZ. I'm pretty surprised how well it works as a shooter and the way you unlock gear by opening sticker packs is mega addictive!

Since getting my xbox one, although my mrs won't let me have it until Xmas I've picked up a few games.
I got the gta 5 bundle which also comes with forza 5 and Fifa 15 downloads and picked up, murdered soul suspect, battlefield 4 and watch dogs.
The wife is getting me far cry 4 and some live gold, should keep me busy for a while.

The games I'm looking forward to are, dead island 2, dying light and the witcher 3.
I'll also be picking up the evil within when I get a chance and that will be it for a while.

Worms: Battlegrounds is now free to download for the Gold contingent and the pseudo-16bit Volgar thing is still there.

Well it's Worms. I was bored after five minutes but it's a freebie and might be of interest to the four people in Tibet who somehow missed all the other versions of it over the years.

Excellent, can't wait to play this one with my kids. Of course I've played this since I got it for the Amig so I'm gonna kick their arses!

Some decent deals around right now with both shadow of mordor and evil within around the £25 mark. I'm waiting for sales as I have too many other games right now. My predictions for January reductions:

Shadow of Mordor, Evil within, sunset overdrive - £20 or less
Assassins Creed unity - £25
Ryse - free with games with gold in the first 3 months of the year.
