one thing. Do you just google the ISO's then and put them on your SD card?

Yup, pretty much. It's a .bin to be precise but the app is compatible with several file types.

You need the bios file aswell but they're just as easy to find.

Some sound lagging issues but I've been playing with the settings and it's getting better.

Touch controls, frame rate etc are super though.

Rattling through the campaign mode of Advance Warfare, its the usual COD stuff, the graphics on the cutscenes though are the best ive ever seen. Its like watching a film

I'd say you'd get all of them cheaper on Amazon.

Speaking of which, got a savage bundle Wii U basic with Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3d World, Wii U party + WiiMote Plus and Nintendoland all for £199.

Seems like it's sold out now. Can't wait! Ps4 or Xbone can wait another year at least.

Yeah, not tempted by new gen consoles just yet.

Have a load of old titles to get through on Xbox360.

Slowly tipping away at Red Dead Redemption these evenings, very enjoyable game.

Need to play a non Rockstar game after this.

Gonna get the 32gb one with New Super Mario Bros, Assassins Creed 3 and Ninja Gaiden 2 for €250. Looking forward to it.

went in to get borderlands for the 360. there was two rows of three copies on the floor. went up to the counter with one "eeeh, no, it's all sold out. sorry about that but we'll get it in again real soon" me -"soon enough so it'll be still under the cheaper price?" "no"
off to amazon i go, and get it cheaper. i wanted to play it tonight was the only reason i was going to pay a bit more for it.

EDIT - went to HMV and picked it up for €29.99. cheaper then amazon and got to play it last night. Very like Borderlands 2 so far, but i liked that game so i'm having a ball so far.

Have a reservation code from Argos for A PS4 with GTA, Far Cry 4 and The Last of Us for €400.

Have a feeling it'll end up gathering dust soon enough but fuck it.

What's your game of the year, folks?

Mine is one of Wolfenstein, Mario Kart or South Park

Most disappointing was Watch Dogs, what a stinker

I play too much Destiny to call it a disappointment, even if I kinda hate it

Only Played 3ds games this year, so one of them. What came out this year? Zelda? Smash Bros if not. just realised almost all the games I bought this year were from last year.

I don't think I bought any PS3 new releases this year :shock:

Wait, FIFA which was abysmal and traded it in immediately. PES is better but not without its faults.

Not really games but Wolf Among Us is cool, gotta finish it.

Loved The Walking Dead Season 2 on iPad.

Just getting stuck into my Wii U so that is my gaming highlight of 2014. I'd imagine when I get more time with it Mario Kart 8 will be my game of the year for 2014 releases.

I picked up Child of Light in this week's north american PSN sale for seven dollars and I'm absolutely loving it

Charming little JRPG
