Halo Spartan assault, it controls like Smash TV but not half as much fun.
Downloading now, something for free is better than nothing though, taking an age to download though. Got the PS+ stuff to download too. Seem to have hit that point where I spend more time downloading games and updates than playing the buggers.

Is anyone else really enjoying the Destiny beta? It's free to anyone now. Really plays like Halo, oh my god! On the intro I was humming the Halo tune. It felt right. And bungee didn't have to pay royalties lol

i give it a try but it just seems to be a dull looking humourless version of borderlands, very average game at best i thought.

Picked up watch dogs, seems ok so far. Spidertank is great and lots to do (too much really). Chicago is dull though, I've yet to start disliking the main character, but I have only just started :)

Theres a pretty cool Xbox One indie 3D Space shooter free on Games For Gold this month. Assault Suit Zero Directors Cut. Very much along the lines of Colony Wars the old PS1 game. Deffo worth a look for a freebie. :D

Well my nephew now has an XBone. Yeah, looks like it does what it's supposed to, lol.

Ah well, something to play Arkham Knight on at least...

Yeah, same here, I've been back on the 360 for a while as there has not been much about but fear not. From September onwards there's loads of lovely stuff. :D

I've got into a groove with watchdogs, mopping up mini missions and gang hideouts. I've barely played the main story. It's a decent game, lots of rubbish but enough good stuff to keep you interested.

Anyone still playing titanfall?

I cant wait. I'm ready for new games now. The Witcher 3 looks promising from a vid I saw on Youtube. When I could see past the f*cking ads, It was an open world Rpg without the loading issues that almost ruined 2 for me. Well a City to explore anyway, when you say 'open world' you really should have an entire planet to play with. ha

Me! i try and get at least a few games in every other day, the best FPS I've played in years, love the whole wall running thing it makes the game a lot faster paced than all the other stuff out there :D

ive just managed to get to Gen 6, ive been stuck on 5 for ages, one of the challenges was a bit of a nightmare :evil:

also has anyone tried this months free games with gold? I still havnt tried last months yet, xbone back log already!

I'm still playing watchdogs, it is definitely starting to outstay it's welcome now though. I tried strike suit zero but it was pretty dull. I'll give it another go but you seem to be just shooting dots against a boring background, with the added joy of an incomprehensible scoring system.
