I downloaded D4 last night. The kinect controls took a little getting used to but they actually work pretty well. The game seems really good, quirky and different, if you enjoyed deadly premonition you'll enjoy this.

Titanfall update then, sounds pretty good to me. New hoard type mode, new enemies, extra game modes. I'll probably pick up the season pass now, with the extra maps I'll probably get quite a bit of extra play out of it.

The trailer/short film on the Games tab of the dash for Halo The Master Chief Collection has got me totally hyped. It has these different players talking about their memories of playing Halo and what it meant to them... can't bloody wait

to any other xbox one owners who are getting this game and want to run through campaign in co-op mode then add me.

Halo collection looks nice but I don't know if I have the will to replay through 4 games I've already played to death. CGI extras look good though.

I'll pick up sunset overdrive next, maybe evil within once the price drops. Titanfall season pass on sale for about £7 now, paid £20 about 5 days ago - the joys of digital :) The hoard mode is good though, although some maps are much harder than others.

The regular free indie for Live gold members this month is Volgarr The Viking, a "hardcore 16bit" sidescrolling platformer. Dullness abounds. At least Microsoft are being consistent with the standard of these offerings - they've all been mediocre so far. Not bothering to download this tbh. The indie scene on the XO is utter garbage.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Farcry is here already? Blimey, that maybe the next game I get TBH. I wouldn't mind paying full price for Far Cry 4 if it's the same sort of awesome Far Cry 3 was. Then it should carry me through until Evil Within is 10p! win win.

Anyone picked up Advance Warfare today?

The multiplayer is definitely back on track after the disappointment of Ghosts last year! The new movement mechanics are really fun and the ability to boost strafe on the ground and in the air makes for proper fire fights instead of the first person to pull the trigger getting the kill. The maps I've played have all been of a decent size and not the huge lonely, camper friendly maps that Ghosts had and they also have the same load out system that was in Black Ops 2.
