I was going to buy it as it was recently on a steep sale (to celebrate launch of latest expansion) but then I heard the console news and decided to wait for that. I like what I see on YT, though.


Just get the PC version, it's a great game if ARPGs are your thing and the mythological setting is a nice change from the dark gloomy horror of games like Diablo.

Also check out Grim Dawn, its made by a few of the guys who worked on Titan Quest and is equally as good (if not better) but is thematically more like Diablo with a hint of Lovecraftian interdimentional terror.

Somehow saw a Lawbreakers ad this arvo so I though I'd check the player count now that's it's been out for about 6 months.

What's the point of that big stupid button on the front of a ps4 pad? And how annoying is that battery draining light?

My PS4 controller is dying. If it's got anything less than about 25% battery it SPAZZES THE strawberry float OUT, presses buttons at random, all kinds of gooseberry fool. It also then refuses to charge properly unless it's properly left alone to 100% recharge.

It's sad in a "How the strawberry float did you not see this coming?" way.

It's actually a pretty good psychological horror game to be fair.

Incredibly, and I hope not too over reactionary, I actually think this is a spoiler. I went in blind and the above would have ruined the surprise for me.

Sure, no worries. I'll spoiler it. It's interesting though as IIRC there's a notice at the start of the game that basically says "this is a horror game, please don't play it if you have a weak constitution" and I actually think the game would be less effective without the creeping doubt in your mind ("is this the moment things are going to get real???"). I do see what you mean though.

Yeah, the warning was a little odd for what I thought was going to be a fairly standard, if exemplary, visual novel . Still, thanks!

Yea, I understand the message but it does some what undermine the experience.

Was at a games tournament at the weekend where this happened. People had been talking about it but I've only just seen it. For anyone who likes seeing funny dirty gooseberry fool that you can do in games skip to 4:50.

I've only just realised that a Rampage movie is arriving in April. "Ho-ho, I wonder if it's based on the old 80s videogame LOL! ;-)".

It is :shock: .

I would like a new Rampage game, though :shifty: .

Horizon Zero Dawn players - y’know the cheat code extra resources you can buy seperate?...can you still get those? They bundled them into the GotY edition I think but I bought the vanilla version in a pre-Xmas sale. Should have waited :roll:
