    With the embargo date counting down many eagerly await if Ubisoft Montreal has created something to cry home about. This isn't a game I plan on downloading from steam hour one, but it surely is interesting to see what 4 years of development time has brought to the table. While the hype has grown over the years the gaming site Flickeringmyth claims they have received an early copy of the Xbox one edition and proclaim s that while it is a good game, it's not the blockbuster many think it will be. They site poor graphics, clunky gameplay and a lackluster plot to keep it from being a truly great game. Though, given the context and constant referral to GTA V, this review is far from helpful as I haven't played it. I do understand that GTA V is now the archetype for an open world shooter, but it shouldn't need to be referred to in every paragraph of the review. It leaves the few who haven't played it in the dark about where the game truly stands and ruins the confidence I have in the authors objectivity.

    Still though, those video's do look enticing and make me wonder if it is actually worth a day one purchase. I have yet to witness any of the negatives of the game and have only seen fluid and dynamic gameplay. Everything from the hacking while driving to the shooting mechanics all looks as smooth as one would hope. I just am waiting to see how it all translates to my keyboard and mouse. As a result I wait for more solid reviews from more reputable sites with the hopes that this will truly be a great game. I need something to kill the time after I complete Dark Souls 2 and Watch Dogs is on my list. More importantly, I await the user reviews from the masses. So if you've got your hands on a copy and have a few things to say about it, please post below.

      Playing on the PS4 and I can say the graphics are nice, though as I said on the forums it's no Infamous or Killzone.

      The only 'clunky' gameplay I see is the driving, which could be a lot better but it's still serviceable. I'd kill for a decent radio feature instead of a track playlist and the online - although I haven't tried it yet - looks promising.

      The only similarity this shares with GTA is cars and open world I for one am enjoying the general mood of the story/game.

      Yea, this looks like something I'll pick up. Still putting the finishing touches on Dark Souls 2 and will probably milk it until this goes on sale. But it does look like something that could keep me busy for quite a bit of time.
      How's the multiplayer? I've been hearing mixed reviews in that respect.

    Well here in the UK, as winter throws one final attempt to solve the pension crisis at us (claims that the government have know for a month about the cold snap, but saw it as an opportunity to cull old people remain unsubstantiated), many have retreated to the warmth and safety of their gaming systems to keep them distracted, and hopefully prevent excessive burden on maternity services up and down the country come November.

    And, of course, more gaming means

    Accurately reviewing big budget high strategy games is hard.
    Well it’s not digging coal out of the bowels of hell hard, but it certainly ranks up there with flicking yourself off to Holly Willoughby after you have packed the kids off to school.
    These games take a huge amount of investment in time even to scratch the surface, and flaws can go completely unnoticed for weeks until one day you suddenly notice the AI is fucked and

    Ever wanted to have a 'legitimate' excuse to purchase soft core porn games, but claim you are doing it for a good reason and not to sate your PG15 perverse sexual fantasies (C'mon. It's the internet. As perverse sexual fantasies go, these are practically a U)
    I know for a fact Belimar, our illustrious leader, is a fan of Hunie Cam (although rumours that he used the experience gained from the game to expand a underground army of CamGirls is probably exaggerated)

    So as January comes to a close, the weather starts to take a turn for the better and we all wonder if the "holiday weight" we acquired last month should more accurately be described as "weight" I take time away from my very busy schedule to help another batch of poor misguided souls.

  • Last year We were mostly Playing.

    Well it’s that time of the year when we take our annual (cough, ahem ¬¬) look, not at the gaming industry, not at the progress made in gaming culture, but far more importantly what we ourselves have actually spent the last year doing, instead of something far more constructive which might actually enrich our lives, or at the very least get us some vitamin D.
    Luckily, you lot have been very considerate this year and I only have seven pages to go through instead of the average 15

    At Christmas

    So we come to the end of yet another year, and quite frankly I'l be glad to see the back of this one (where literally everything I actually gave a shit about died)
    But I'm not going to let bouts of chronic depression prevent me from helping those with very real and tangible problems at this time of year.
    Unless they're Jeremy Hunt.
