you can probably get a copy for a fiver these days. i thoroughly recommend you check it out. If you've still got a ps3 I'll even stick it in the post to you once you send it back when you're done because i'll want a refresher before 2 launches

ha no need mate, I just don't like the look of it

There's a lot of games I take one look at and decide they aren't for me

Far Cry for example, just no interest in it

I don't really play racers or beat em ups either. Both shite genres

Very disappointed with E3. I remember the last gens first e3 and getting games like Assassins Creed and Mass Effect announced and being blown completely away. Nothing here really that did that. AC Unity looks really cool, the tech and co-op and that. No Mans Sky, again tech wise, looks really cool. But nothing really special. A few of the PSN indie games looked really cool too.

got to the last chapter of Ryse last night

It's a glorified tech demo

Really shallow game, started life as a Kinect-only title and you can tell

Got Crazy Taxi in this week's PSN sale for old times sake, I can forgive the car bouncing around like a rock in a blender but they took out the Offspring soundtrack :x

Finished Halo Spartan Assault and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood over the weekend. Started Watch Dogs, first impressions are that it's ugly

GTA V looked better

LA Noire is 7.50 on the PSN store, 13 for the complete edition, never played it before - worth a go/worth getting the full version?

Didn't realise only three of the Season Two Walking Dead episodes were out so far. Played through them today, story/characters not as good as in Season One but still really enjoyable. I love those 'quick make a decision about who dies' moments, it's such a cool game dynamic.

Is there such a thing these days as a story-led, inventory based adventure as was all the rage in the 90s?

Tex Murphy, Gabriel Knight, Broken Sword, that type of thing.

Every year or so I get an itch to play them. Scummvm usually does the trick but I'm always thirsty for more.
