    No introductions, I'm just hitting you hard like Jeremy Kyle with paternity results. Game of the Year Gears of War 3 / The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim A tie! Bethesda's epic cluster fuck still compels people like no other game; providing a lush fantasical world to explore, experience and go backwards flying dragon spotting in. But equally as worthy to the crown is Epic's ultimate bromance road trip. Following a gaggle of giant, throbbing, vein-y penises through a rip roaring third person shootathon. Best Mobile/Handheld Game - (smartphones, DS, PSP, 3DS, download and retail games) Super Mario 3D Land Nintendo's tired, washed-up, old mascot impresses tired, washed-up, old gamers with another... another... colourful platformer. Best Retail/Disc Game - (PC, 360, PS3, Wii - games you buy that come on discs) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Another award for the game with a dodgy hip. But y'know, dragons! Best Download-only Game - (for PC, PSN, WiiShop, XBL) Bastion The Kid sees Supergiant Games' wishy washy RPG and wonders what's wrong; wonders if a hammer can inspire some more entertainment. Best Multiplayer/Online Experience Gears of War 3 Putting your cap on backwards and hooking up with bros to shoot from behind walls is 2011's top pass time. Most Wanted Game of 2012 Mass Effect 3 Generic Sci-fi: The Game comes to a conclusion this year and forumers are excited to see the back of it. Disappointments Battlefield 3 Dice's gripping and unique singleplayer campaign and perfect multiplayer, that wasn't at all broken, fails to impress this lot. Overlooked Gems Shadows of the Damned Shinji Mikami and Suda51's collaboration that isn't Killer7 is worth hunting out apparently. Best avoid. So there we have. The bestest of the bestest for you to look at in list form. Oh, and Sam's the biggest cunt. It's official.

    Set up 1 - Main Living Room. 4k tv, One X, Pro and Switch Set up 2 - Spare room, Xbox One OG, 360, Pi and PS3 & Most importantly a wheel setup Both got surround sound setups because I fucking love that shit. Adds so much to programmes, films and games IMO. Only budget setups but wipe the floor with even really expensive soundbars in my experience (bought 1 and heard a couple others). Definitely the way to go if you have the space and patience to set them up. Yes I’m very lucky and have a understanding partner. She doesn’t let me play on them as much as I’d like though. Can’t have it all I guess.

    Went round to my mum’s and boxed some stuff up that were still there. Amongst some gems like my DS and collection (DS still had battery juice, the PSP was dead), my GameCube collection was there in all it’s glory. Close-ups in spoilers:

    Latest physical Switch purchases. I bought this case to store all my games in. It can hold 63 Switch games (I have 8 spaces left) and 4 micro SD cards. As far as cases go, it's pretty cool.

    My gaming space is a proper man cave, a room built on to the side of the house that doubles as a Mac based recording studio. Although, if I'm honest, my gaming space 90% of the time is wherever I happen to be with the old Switcheroo. God, I love that console.

    I thought we had a thread for showing off bits of our collections, but I guess not. If you have a particular part of your collection you're into, we'd love to see it. I'll go first. Inspired by @illdog's post in the Post your latest gaming purchases thread (sorry, no Speedos), here's some pictures of my current physical Switch game collection. I am mostly digital these days, completely on Xbox One and PS4, but there's something about the Nintendo Switch and its little cases, game cards and limited releases and launch editions that I can't resist. I do have a decent digital collection as well, though. I started off trying for every Limited Run release, but stopped after game 11 as it was getting expensive. I will still get the odd release, I purchased Celeste (GOTY 2018) the moment it was available to order, but no way am I going for the full set. One I am going to try and keep up with is the Nicalis published releases. Their launch versions always come with goodies including a manual, stickers, key rings to name a few. It's clear a lot of love goes into these. I have them all so far, and a couple on order. Also in this pic are Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, and Japanese releases of Okami and Phoenix Wright Trilogy. Finally, in the spoiler box below is the rest of my Switch games. I have the big box Limited Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but just regular case from the LE is in the picture. I have some games on their way (Dragon's Dogma) or on order (Crystal Crisis, The Messenger, Umihara Kawase Fresh!), so might update this post from time to time. Over to you. 👍

    This was random - I've been canal boating on the Shropshire Union, and stop off at the service point at Calveley for water, and to use their shower block. In the drying room someone has left half a dozen VHS video films, FOC, including this one (well I couldn't leave it behind - but will have to dig out the VCR and SCART lead):

    Bit of a cheat this one. My housemate sold off his Switch and all his games, except the limited edition of Bayonetta 2 because neither cex or Game would take it. He offered it to me but just taking it felt wrong, so I bought the Fist of the North Star game to trade him for it It's all unopened, including the code for the first game. I'm not sure when I'm going to play it but it seemed a shame not to take up the offer

    Before we go any further down this dark path, can I informally ask that the comic/super hero stuff gets calmed down a bit? I’m not saying this as a mod, just as someone who uses the forum. I expect it in relevant threads, I don’t really expect it to crop up basically everywhere.

    Yeah I gotta admit that after a year and some change ranting about them on a weekly news show I’m kinda sick of talking about them now. So once more the cheap seats. Loot boxes are a fucking terrible mechanic that should not be in premium games. Same with micro transactions. I’m ok with micro transactions in free to play games. If you’re playing a game for free, investing as much time in it as a premium game, and enjoying it as much as a premium game I see no problem with throwing some money at it to support the developers. Even if the money isn’t going straight to the devs themselves it’s showing the publisher continued support of the game is financially viable, so they will continue to support it financially. Micro transactions in premium games can fuck right off though, especially single player games. Look at Dead or Alive 6’s $93 Season Pass for an example of how not to do it. There was a time when all the shite in that pass was a part of the game proper, but it’s been stripped out to rinse even more money out of a loyal fan base. It’s disgusting. But loot boxes are the worst offenders, even in free to play games. Say I play Overwatch and I main Bastion, I could put 10’s of hours into playing and because of the loot box system I could get no skins, emotes, tags, etc for my chosen robo, and the more characters they introduce the lower my odds get. Give me one good reason why character progression (cosmetic or otherwise) should come down to luck. Players should be rewarded for spending their time with a game or character, not forced into a game of chance. Sure, there are people out there who don’t feel the need to buy loot boxes, but there are also those out there who are compelled to, like kids who like to see the pretty colours and gambling addicts desperately rolling the dice. Loot boxes are designed to manipulate these people into spending money they don’t have, and brushing it off as ‘not your problem’ is fucking ignorant. This side of it is a real problem, only last year there was a patent leaked belonging to Activision for an algorithm to party up players with standard kit with those carrying the best loot boxes have to offer in hopes of manipulating sales. Of the $7.6 billion Activision made in 2017 $4 billion came from loot boxes at micro transactions. There are far more consumer friendly systems for extra monetisation, but they all get the fat cats less money. Brushing loot boxes off because they don’t affect you personally is incredibly ignorant. They are made purely to manipulate money out of vulnerable people. I used to be part of the ‘not my problem crowd’, but the more I looked into it the more I realised how corrupt it was. Yes, there are other more serious problems in the world, but that doesn’t mean we should sit by and let greedy CEO’s make an already expensive hobby even more expensive, or in cases of those vulnerable to it genuinely life damaging. Thats all I have to say on this.

    @therealjaxon that’s the worst post I’ve ever read here 😅 you’re pointing out pride marches has gay men being flamboyant as something negative to say about them? It’s about being whoever they want to be without prejudice but you’re saying they shouldn’t act that way if they don’t want to be targeted for comedy? Actually your opinion is depressing. I think this should be an off topic thread?

    Off to spend the weekend with a couple of mates, thought I’d pick up a third pad to go along with the Pro Controller and the Hori wired pad. I wondered why this was 20 quid cheaper than the official Pro pad. Turns out it’s because it’s old school battery time. Has mappable buttons on the back for whatever reason. It’s one of these if anyone’s interested. The shop also had a GameCube style pad which was tempting.

    in an effort to cut this off and try to keep this sort of on topic. @OCH the amount of times you've been told by multiple people, people who knew you on Gtm and those that didn't that your posts sometimes come across as arrogant or smug, at a certain point you need to look at why that is. I don't consider any one here to be stupid, if multiple people are coming to the same conclusion you need to look at what you're doing, and I mean you need to because we can't all be having this conversation every other week. You make some good points, but try to find a way to get your point across in a way that isn't going to just bring you confrontation everyone else, and I'm aware I don't have the best track record with this, you don't have to bite at everything, you can just ignore things every now and then on topic, I never liked FF7 when I played it back in the day, in fact I've never really liked any FF game, but seeing this has kind of tempted me to pick the Switch version up (of the original) at some point. Maybe I should go back to 15 at some point too

    So our office/games room/box room has been a bombsite since... Pretty much the last time I sorted it back in November. I've tidied it out, got rid of some of the junk and rearranged the games to make them flow a bit better. It's gone from this: With Xbox 360 and DS games thrown in where I couldn't be bothered rearranging stuff, and another one of those bookcases behind (next to the sofa bed) with the GameCube, Wii, Wii U and remaining PS3 games in it. Note this chaos specifically: To this: The PS4 games are sorted, the Xbox One games are arranged, and the 360 games follow on immediately after. I've moved the extra 360 games to the top of the tv unit in place of the PS3 games, which are now in the second bookcase. Note the lack of chaos on the top: The DS games have been moved too, so the third bookcase is basically a Nintendo one: Excuse the kids curtains and yellow wall. It used to be the baby's bedroom before we swapped them. The whole room feels much better now, way more organised and less cluttered/packed out. Plus I've also got the space to pull out the side table with the Zelda lamp on it. Nice, productive afternoon all round.

    Played the first 90 minutes last night. I'll get the boring part out the way first, played in 1440p on mostly Ultra settings, with some high settings (auto detect) too and it runs superbly, not sure of the frame rate as Origin doesn't have an FPS counter but I'm pretty confident it was a constant 60 throughout with no drops at all, impressive throughout performance wise. First thing I did in the game itself was create a character, straight away you can't help but notice how awful the character models are, they look distinctly last-gen to me, the eyes are incredibly weird too. Spent a whole lot of time configuring my Female Ryder in this (Red head with green eyes as always), designed her twin with ginger hair too and a bit of a beard going on. Combat next up, pleased to report its pretty good. Definitely not as tight as ME2, it feels looser and more akin to ME1's gunplay that any of the other games in the original trilogy, I didn't like the decision to change the cover from pressing a button to stick to auto stick, doesn't feel as good and I got killed a few times when I thought I was in cover but wasn't. Overall though I'm happy with it, its satisfying enough getting headshots and popping out from cover but definitely doesn't feel as refined as ME2. Even though this was a story mission you could still wander off the beaten track, found some caves with loot, alien structures and new bits and pieces to scan, my favourite part though was finding an abandoned alien ship all in darkness which I found very Nostromo from Alien and mysterious, didn't go on long enough but it was a memorable moment. The game also employs Skyrim/Fallout's top compass to alert you to nearby points of interest which I find a definite improvement on Dragon Age 3's mini map. So yeah, so far so good really, it hasn't blown me away and is a little more rough around the edges than I expected, it's also a little more Dragon Age 3 in some of the exploration aspects than I wanted but I'm happy with it so far. Will post further thoughts once I've played more tonight.
