A thousand thankyous. 

How'd the game do? Successful? 

It was one of those games which had an incredible trailer and tons of potential but didn't live up to the hype, I thought.

It must've done well enough though, they made a second and a third is on the way.

I had three missed calls in three minutes from my 60 year old father a few years ago. He never calls so thought something awful had happened. I phoned back, and he answered with “Thanks for calling ba

Excuse my indulgence for a minute. This is more WHAT PLAY HER but my daughter has become a complete Minecraft convert this year. Blocks away for at least 30 mins a day. She has about a dozen worlds on

Watch Dogs was abit of a disappointment. Bit of a rubbish story and felt over hyped. The sequel fixed loads of its issues and was alot of fun. They went with a completely daft OTT story instead of the dreary original plus they went nuts with the hacking/gadgets. 

The madness you can cause especially with the drone is hilarious. Fly it over a gang hideout then hack one of the gangsters phones, framing him with the police. When they turn up to arrest him, hack the guy stood next to him and call in a rival gang hit squad to take him out. Then watch the war between two gangs and the police through your drone as you hide round the corner. When everyone is dead climb over a fence and rob the place. 

The San Francisco/Oakland location looks stunning too. I'd skip the original and start with the sequel. The main characters are completely different.

Has anyone played Hitman 2?

I remember enjoying the first one and saw the sequel for cheap on the Playstation Store so I got as I needed something to play.

I've only done the first mission in Miami so far but I'm finding it very average. I like how they've gone for a mini open world type setting but I'm not a fan of having to do the same mission over and over again with tiny slight tweaks. I'd much rather it just be regular missions.

Has anybody actually had a look at Farming Simulator on PSN yet? I'm still plenty busy driving trains and Animal Crossing, but am in two minds over downloading it. I guess it'll depend on how involved it is.. Might download it and give it a look over the weekend.

Got it for the Xbox, at least one of the years, think it’s 17 or 19 and really like it. Some of the in house tunes on the Country radio station are bangers. 
 

Top tip. Get as many solar panels and windmills as you can as they are guaranteed money every year. And your silo can hold different types of grain.

I've been watching a guy called Colonel Failure playing through on YouTube which I'm finding very entertaining, likewise his train sim playthroughs. The guy works for Dovetail as well, so sometimes turns up on their livestreams.

You've been watching somebody else play a farming simulator on YouTube? Christ, I'd be looking forward to watching Death In Paradise too after that!

I've Played a little bit of Farming Simulator past couple of days and my 8 year old Daughter has enjoyed playing it, she hasn't got the full grasp of it but has the basics and she mainly just enjoys the animal side rather then crops, she has loads of Chickens.

I however have already lost countless hours to Cities:Skylines, damn that game is addictive once you get going on it and time just flies, Its always I'll just build this road and fix this Issue, then whilst fixing that something else pops up which leads to another thing and another thing then you've unlocked the next level of buildings and so on and so on 

I tuned it on the other night around 9.30ish and  thought I'd get an hour or so in before bed and the next thing I knew it was 1.30 in the morning

I usually have something on as background noise while I'm doing something else. It helps me concentrate.

I’ve mentioned this before but my Dad is obsessed with the farming game, he’s got 500+hour saves on each game since 2015. He’s so protective over it as well, the Grandkids aren’t allowed anywhere near it and he’ll even hide the game discs when my ten year old nephew visits. Can’t have that little shit spending any of his precious $$$! 

I see him every couple of weeks but our only text conversation goes like this. Presumably his last message is the name of a trophy or perhaps he’s just a big show off

That sounds like my Dad who gave me years off "aren't you to old to be playing those video games" then in 2006 I was helping him set up his new computer and it had a free copy of Tiger Woods PGA Golf with it. I pointed this out to him and he seemed non plussed but I installed it for him anyway and he became obsessed with the whole series. Buying it and rinsing it every year. Dispite the fact he doesn't play golf, watch it on TV or like computer games.

Has anyone played the Switch port of this? I’m tempted to get it as it seems right up my street, but the reviews I’ve read online have been rather mixed.

Had a hundred coins on my Nintendo ehop, and a friend tipped me off to a game called Superola. It's a runner platform thing. You play a llama/alpaca saving the world's hamburgers from the alien hotdogs. There are a lot of "nods" to retro games and memes, it's a pleasant enough distraction for what amounts to a quid.

Finished Horizon Zero Dawn after taking a 2 year break from it for some reason (I think I needed to uninstall stuff for other games so off it went)

 

Really enjoyed it, but it suffers from the same thing I hate in most other openworld games - when you open the map it's just overwhelming the stuff you can do. I basically just ignored everything and did the main questline (I was level 48 by the end of the game and the level rating thing said you only needed to be about 28 for the last mission). 

 

The bowplay is incredibly done, and I liked the world. I hope HZD2 is a PS5 launch title because I definitely will be getting it.

Never quite finished it (also probably needed to clear up some space) but I thought Zero Dawn was definitely one of the better done open worlds and I didn't feel particularly overwhelmed. Might be because I really liked the lore and the world building.

Combat is definitely ace.

Ubisoft games are probably the worst when it comes to being overwhelming. Bloody love AC Odyssey but fuck me now that is an overwhelming open world.

Now I need to download Zero Dawn again but I'm determined to finally finish Valkyria Chronicles 4 before moving onto something else.
