The Video Games Thread

The main forum where you can talk about the festival - from the line-ups to camping advice and everything in between. Also forum for generally chatting and talking about things.
Finished off Doom. They kept trying to force some plot into the game when all you want to do is kill everything on the screen. Great game, much fun to be had with it. when back to mop up some achievements and because it's got defined levels and not open world, you got to load each level :x

Got Instant Indie Hits bundle for €20 on DwG 10 games including: The Swapper, Thomas Was Alone, Hue, Stealth Inc 2, Stikbold, The Swindle, OlliOlli, Nova-111, Action Henk and 10 Second Ninja X. Thomas was Alone is the one I started and it's weirdly wonderful. standard platformer with 8bit graphics but with a golden storyline. i really care about my stupid little blocks.

SimCity for android is good craic, but as with all mobile games you get to a point where it's practically impossible to progress without ponying up actual actual cash for in-game funds.

Bought a second controller with the PS4 on a whim, but have no real need for it. Returned it, and picked up GTA5 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided instead.

Really interested to play GTA in first-person, and I loved Human Revolution on PS3 so DE should be ace too.

You need 2 PS4 controllers so you can charge one while you use the other one.

despite having 2 controller, I bought a 2m cable so I didnt have to swap them. One is gathering dust. I'll just use it in a while and it will be all matted and new feeling without all the grease of the current one

Nevermind grease the rubber pads on the sticks are coming off mine.

I hate wired controllers now. I've become far too used to the wireless.
