I used a refund from Amazon to pick up Torment: Tales of Numenera last week. Loaded it up on the PS4 and started a new game. Within three 'clicks' I'd managed to get 'Game Over' and had to restart from scratch. At least I managed to pick up the 'Terminal Velocity' achievement in the process. (Probably the fastest achievement I've ever got on PC or console! :lol:)

Having got past the 'prologue' I'm not really too sure about the game itself. I rate Planescape: Torment as one of the great (narrative) RPGs of all time but so far Numenera feels a little too much like 'read a heap of text, make a choice, progress to next heap of text and make another choice or die and start again, making a different choice'. I don't yet 'feel' like my character is much more than a puppet at the moment. Not sure if that's because the retro isometric game play is not as immersive as modern 3D, 360° open world RPGs, or just the story hasn't hooked me yet.  :-\

I mean there was a alot of reading (and dying) in Planescape Torment, so maybe it's on the money?

Got Dawn Of War for $1 from the charity shop. Have got my moneys worth and then some. I forgot how much fun this game was. A proper feeling RTS unlike the 2nd one..haven't played 3 yet, but really there is no need at the moment :D

I really, really enjoyed 2 over 1. It wasn't a proper RTS I admit but it was something of its own, a great co-op game/skirmisher. So many hours spent with my friends and then took a new life with the survival mode.

Skyrim for PS3.

Having read good things and seeing it going for £3.00 at CEX, I decided to give it a go.

So far, pretty good. I haven't gotten very far yet, and I need to get used to the controls, inexplicably finding myself hitting the 'square' button when I should be pressing R1 when fighting...

I wish there was a lock-on facility when fighting.

I really want to get to grips with the archery too. I usually find the bad guys get up close by the time I want to launch, so I need to switch to melee. (So why not just stick with melee? I like archers I guess.)

The shere amount of stuff going on I actually find a bit off-putting, (not really a complaint, it's just a little overwhelming. Craft this, mine that, skills and perks and whatnot. Oh, and you can cook and stuff too.) although I'm aware I don't have to get into all that straight away. This sort of game is what you make it. I like action rpg games, and the open-world is great, but I do find myself feeling a bit lost...

Anyway, first game I have played in a couple of years, apart from a recent Arkham Asylum where I kept getting shot because I couldn't rely on the gargoyles any more. (They explode! Hee hee. )

HAD to start ALL OVER AGAIN lost all my equipment despite the fact that I pay the £9. premium membership.

Tekken 7. In the arcades of Tokyo. Took a number of extreme pastings  and one memorable victory before I realised that I didn't actually have to play a global vs match but standard single player mode was buried somewhere in the menu. It's hardly revolutionary but it looks good and I'm just happy we're getting a Tekken game on the current console generation.

The most popular games were this, Taiko Drumming Hero and various incomprehensible rhythm action games including one which is basically Virtua Jean-Michel Jarre!

I love Tekken but was unsure of the new game after watching a couple of videos. It certainly looks good but I'm wondering if I should bother - even more so now that it looks like Baek* has been removed.

Cheers

*the best player, IMO

Tales from the Borderlands by Telltale Games. Its on sale at present in the Xbox marketplace (£3 or £4). Really good. Helps if you are a fan of the Borderlands games but if you weren't this would probably make you go out and play those games.

Episode 2 has  a great opening/title credit scene.

Picked up Just Cause 3 for a tenner. I've eschewed the missions and am just batgliding around blowing shit up. Massive explosions everywhere. So cathartic.

It's very pretty. I'd do more missions, but the loading times are a bit of a drag.

Fallout 4

I should be saving my son but I keep wandering into random buildings and killing everything instead.
