I bought it during Steam sale, its £12 I wish I had back. Completely awful, idk if its high expectations because of Football Manager, but everything about the game feels incomplete. The presentation of it is completely awful though, and thats one major thing that turns me off trying to play it again.

Destiny is sexy as all hell. But I have no clue what I'm doing. I'm terrible at these open world games.

Damn it! And naturally right after I finished building a new gaming machine for the past 4 months.

So torn on the NHL 15 videos. I'll probably get it regardless as there's nothing else to play, but I'm really not a fan of the new announcing.

Also torn on whether I want it for the One or the PS4. Playstation has always been easier for Rosters and what not but Xbox I have at least 1 friend I know who'll play it.

What are your specs?

Gamescon trailer: Hawke, Morrigan and possibly the Warden make an appearance. Oh yeah, there's one hell of a freaky looking enemy as well

I never get it for the one friend, unless it's your wife

If you already use rosters to the point where you recognize PS4 superiority in that area then it'll be worth it for you.

If you're into the multi-player aspect, I'd keep a close eye on the talk that EASHL and GMC won't be on the XB1 or PS4.

I couldn't careless about EASHL however PS4 is just easier to move Rosters.

Does anyone have experience with that NHLView? Curious if they'll have it for the next generation in a few months.

Starting a play-through of DA2 to get my choices from DAO ready for DAI.

Man. DA2 is drudgery.

Ed - the game-play and combat are tedious. I actually like the story - and I really like the way it's told.

So stoked. I'm receiving a copy of that as part of my Kickstarter pledge for Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Slightly tempted by the bioshock deal. Never played either. My younger bro did and enjoyed it.

Has anyone played the Destiny Beta? If so, what was your opinion. I'm debating on what to pick up on September 9th between Destiny and NHL 15. More than likely I will pick up NHL because of getting ahead in Ultimate Team before everyone gets it around Christmas time. Don't have enough in the old college budget to pick up both

The original Bioshock is good, I wouldn't recommend any of the others.

My takeaway of the Destiny Beta - it's Halo for Xbox One (the platform I played it on). The controls, the feel, all the same as Halo 4. Pretty, but didn't get the sense of much (if any) innovation.

First Bioshock was great. I haven't played the others, but Infinite got really good reviews and my roommate liked it. At that price, you can't really go wrong.

Loved it. I'm definitely picking up Destiny, the only question for me is whether I buy on PS3 or cave and grab a PS4.

My best one liner to describe it is that it's Halo meets Diablo. The aesthetic and controls are definitely Halo-esque, but the community, leveling, and loot system are similar to an action RPG.

There are some concerns about it (how much content will be in the initial release vs. the expansions, lack of good communication system, how balanced with PvP be, viability of end game content), but I have no doubt I'll get at least $60 worth of entertainment from the game.

Sort of. There are more MMO elements in Destiny, though it's not really a full-fledged MMO, either. You encounter other players when adventuring, though missions are in instanced areas that only you/your fireteam will be in. Certain missions (strikes & raids) require a group to play, though strikes will pair you with randoms if you don't have one already. Raids (end-game content) will need a pre-made group and will reset weekly.

There's also PvP.

BioShock 1 & 2 are great, but Infinite was a big step back for the series. Elizabeth is an excellent character, though, and I'm planning to play Burial at Sea when I can get both for $10.
