The Last of Us. I got a PS3 for Christmas along with a handful of the best PS3 exclusives (Ni no Kuni, Uncharted trilogy etc.).

I approve of this game.

Batman Arkham Knight on PS4.

This is the last game in Rocksteady's Arkham series and it's the first game you can drive the batmobile. I was jazzed about this at first, now it's just pissing me off. The batmobile has taken over the game.

:roll:


I am also playing Alien Isolation on Xbox One.

I'm playing CoD III now. Its all right...not great, not bad. Worth 30-40 minutes of my time a few nights a week.

How's the PS4? My PS3 is 4 years old and going strong...but man I'd love to upgrade.

It's pretty slick. Like you, I had a PS3 for a while and Infamous Second Son was my incentive to upgrade as it's only available on PS4.

The graphics are superior, it's quieter than the PS3 and the controllers (with touch pad) are sooo much better.

I bought a PS4 with Battlefront a couple weeks ago. My controller died last night - not from overuse or anything, I think it's just bad out of the box (won't charge anymore and I've tried every trick that Google provided).
I'm horrible at First-person shooters, but I still have fun playing them. That said, I've enjoyed the crap out of Battlefront so far. I love the X and A-Wing -vs- Tie Fighter battles. Also was playing a lot of Madden 16. I haven't played a new Madden game in a few years and there's a lot of new little details in this one - so far, so good. And the graphics are ridiculous.

I got my kids Disney Infinity 3.0 (Star Wars) for Christmas and am eager to see what that's all about.

I wish I could justify the upgrade price. I only play one game, pretty much year round until the next version comes out (Call of Duty series). I guess if/when they decide to do only PS4 versions I'll make the switch.
Of course, if my PS3 were to meet an untimely death by an unfortunate accident or natural causes...well...

I was watching some game footage of this last night. Woohoo...Friday night. Anyhoo......WoW! Reviews are pretty solid on IGN.

How's the pod racing DLC?

100+ hours into Fallout 4.

It's still absolutely incredible. I love just wandering the wasteland, it's so beautiful.

Managed to get Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain for $20 on Black Friday and liking it a LOT. First Metal Gear game I've gotten since the very first one on the NES.

the question should be what am i not playing!

For focus sake tho. The Stanley Parable has just got a ressurgence thanks to my daughter wanting to play Stan Lee as she calls it. Its a marvellous head fuck in all the right ways. Read in a very douglas adams bbc tv series version way. Hillarious.

GtaV - again. Hilarious. I remember journalists whining about the torture scene. Wtf. Its hilarious satire. Dark humour granted. Trevor really brings about great narrative opportunities. The Lester guy constantly manipulating and profitting off the stock markets under the veneer of social justice is pure gold as he encapsulates the pure cynicism of the american dream.

That's actually all I have to say. Just Fable III.

Trevor definitely brings forth the most funny in the game.

Try swimming in the ocean, way way out. Fun surprise. :twisted: I chose Michael for this.

I'm still playing Arkham Knight. 75% done. I don't mind the batmobile now that I've figured out all the weaponry and modes. I will say that the game is very batmobile centric though. I've played all the Arkham games and of the series, the best ones are Asylum and City.

Dead Island. It's like Skyrim...with zombies. The possibility of zombies being just around the corner all the time limits the free exploration of the open world quite a bit. Plus getting bitch-slapped by zombies really takes a lot out of the health bar.

I love zombies and thought about getting that for ps4, but just could never pull the trigger on it.

I'm in the middle of Last of Us remastered for PS4. I loved it the first time on the PS3 and am enjoying moving through it at a MUCH quicker pace the second time around.

Got me a couple of games that were supposed to be pretty good a few years ago. Although I don't know if it's a good idea to try to play through Fallout3, Skyrim, South Park and X-Com simultaneously.

I've been playing a friends web game https://thenotquiz.com/oscar/

Guess whether it won the oscar shown, and if so what year...

It was a CV builder, so non monetized, no adverts, no purchase, just Q+A!

Feel free to have a play, he'll thank you. :)

Good quiz, although infuriating at times. I struggled with a few of the years, confusing the release year and the Oscar year.

There were many conversations about the years...

Films come out in different years in different countries.
The Oscars awarded last month are the 2016 Oscars awarded in 2017.

We never actually received consensus during 'user research'! :)

edit: But thanks for playing, and the feedback. I'll pass it on

Oh, all frustration is all my fault. I liked getting caught up between release year and awards year. It's a good twist and something that requires an extra moment of thought.
