PostGeneral Games Chat; The Chat Thread!
by Skarjo » Tue Sep 09, 2008 12:13 am

Well, there's an Off Topic general chat thread, and God knows sometimes you just want to point something out without making a whole thread. So go ahead, ask a question or make a statement. Use me for your general needs!

How bad has Penny Arcade been recently?

Is Battlefield; Bad Company worth buying at silly Morrisons prices?

I've just discovered Cod4 onlines, and it's brilliant!

Asda have finally dispatched my copy of Final Fantasy IV. I hope they don't dick around with Dragon Quest IV.

They may be cheap, but they're slow.

Bad Company's not worth anything.

Without a doubt, in fact its worth getting at full price.

In the last 3 months there hasn't been a better game released.

To be honest I probably would have played DQ first anyway.

I'm more in the mood for whimsy in my portable RPG than angst.

Viva Pinata - not my cup of tea, really. I just want to ... make a ruckus. :lol:

Viva Pinata is lovely. It's a game I don't remember playing that much, but I do remember having a quick go a few times. A few quick goes where I'd just want to decorate the garden a bit so I'd earn a little cash selling the heads off a poison ivy plant and then realise there's a new pinata on the outskirts and then try and entice him in and then oh really is it 5 in the morning?

Just like games should be!

This.

The multiplayer is fantastic and I prefered the single player to COD4's.

Great idea for a thread, btw. Well done, Skarjo.

Anyway, I've just been playing Mercs 2 which is a mess, but still brilliant fun.

How's the Co-Op? It's another cheap-ass Morrisons buy, and any game with and advert featuring 'Oh no you didn't' as a catchy ditty must be supported.

I played the original on PS2 loads and was a fan but this looks so broken from the videos I've seen. Is it as much fun as the original? If so I may have to try and pick it up.

Is anyone on here going to play Warhammer Online? For some reason I decided ages ago that it would be the MMO I'd try out but now it is nearly out I am not so sure. :oops:

I've just spent the past few hours in co-op with Tiarny... it's stupid, glitchy (apparently my C4 was repeatedly sticking to my face), but also ridiculously over the top fun. Standing on a tiny inflatable boat, chucking C4 at a HUGE bridge's struts while Tiarny stood on it desperately trying to evac in a helicopter before I detonated the final charge, that was awesome. As was leveling a city block because we could.

I note the fact that you've chosen to pay homage to the classic 'Chat' style thread, rather than the more unsavoury alternative.
