Not sure about the UK, but Rogue Trooper Redux for the PS4 is currently on special in the Playstation Store for about $12.00 Australian Dollars (about 7 pounds?) - not a bad price!

Its on sale, but it's £13.99. Not on Xbox though. Is it just me or do more games go on sale more frequently on the PlayStation Store? Sometimes it seems like MS's sales are perhaps overly curated or something.

Going into the storms on Mad Max was so cool!! Good game but those storms in particular are one of my favourite gaming moments of last year (I finally got round to it on Game Pass).

Most blockbusters can be boiled down to pointless enjoyable tosh now I think about it!

I'd put the supporting characters on par with Jesse Ventura's turn in Predator.

No higher praise for a supporting character!  Blain is one for the ages.

Blaine is fantastic, pretty much all the supporting cast in that film are fantastic! Billy's a big favourite of mine too. 'There's something out there waiting for us *pregnant pause* and it ain't no man. We're all gonna die.' Yeah cheers Billy thanks for that

Isnt that latest Ratchet and Clank game free on PS+ at the moment too? Meant to be pretty good, had a tie-in film too. Mighty No. 9 also, if you're in the market for an off-brand megaman game. Great month for PS4 owners.

I'm hoping it's all running a bit smoother for the weekend when I can get stuck in. The friends I know who made it in had a great time, and even found themselves crewing up with friendly strangers and having a great time, which is rare these days (normally online gaming is just people yelling at each other). It all sounded very pleasant!

Yeah good point you can matchmake to get into a crew with strangers if you need to, I bet it wouldn't take long to find a good group. We lived the dream of finding friendly members of other crews last night, it was pretty cool! It felt rewarding just to be nice and cordial when the crews can kill each other at any moment. We even all jumped on one ship and sailed it around for a while, but unfortunately you cant go on quests together or share loot between crews (you could give them loot, but only the crew that turns the loot in will get the gold) so unless one crew doesn't mind just helping there's not much to do in that situation. Although there are these 'raid' events to use the Destiny parlance, marked by an imposing storm cloud skull on the horizon, where different crews attending can work together to beat the CPU enemies so I guess we could've done that. I think there's enough pieces of loot at the end of the raids that you could split it all, but strangers with a tenuous truce will probably just turn on each other, or more likely never make a truce and shoot on sight :D

Sea Of Thieves - this is getting a lot of flack, but I'm loving it. It's definitely a co-operative multiplayer game through and through, you really have to work together just to sail effectively with everyone having jobs onboard, stuff like angling the sails, steering, and surveillance up in the crows nest. There's a smaller ship for 1-2 players but if you're playing solo there's still a lot of multitasking to do that would benefit from a second player, I could see how people playing alone would have a tough time and playing solo seems to be missing the point a little.

The quests and bounties are quite straight forward but you run into lots of cool random events on the way, not least of all other players out to get you! You carry your spoils back to the ship and sail back to designated ports to sell them, and as items that anyone can interact with, other players can take them from you. So there's a real tension around strangers, just seeing another ship in the distance gets the blood pumping. I cant think of many games that elicit the excitement of running back to the ship mid-island adventure as we see a galleon on the horizon heading for us and our sitting-duck of a moored ship (it was that filmic moment of one person noticing the incoming danger and being like "er.. guys?" as the others were fighting, oblivious), or successfully fighting off a boarding party as we are targeted trying to get our loot back to town. I look forward to hopefully forming an uneasy truce with another group some time, although its pretty cutthroat out there! Pun intended.

I don't see any reason at all why movies based on games can't be awesome. I was so excited for Doom, the game had a great premise and setting, tons of atmosphere, great visual and sound design. You could definitely make a fantastic horror film out of it if you connect with the source material. So when the film was announced, I let myself imagine someone had an inspired idea/script or else why the hell are they making a Doom film??

I wish John Carpenter had made that Dead Space film! I'm replaying Dead Space 2 at the moment and it's better than most horror anything.

Great for 2d games, nice knowing I can use them on my Switch if I get that adaptor.

Bugger, I'd go to that if I was a Londoner. Here's hoping they film the Q&A and put it on YouTube!
