Still waiting for a release date for South Park

Will probably get the new COD with it being WW2, after dodging last years one.

have you tried battlefield 1?
No I got Battlefield 4 or whatever it was when I bought my PS4 and never liked it so didn't bother. TBH I'd find it hard to get into a multiplayer FPS at the moment. Hard to find the time to learn to play a new game when you've kids. Most of my gaming is just an hour of FIFA here and there. Though I was playing and enjoying Witcher 3, need to get back to that.

Lads, I'm a PS4 guy now. Treated myself yesterday, delighted.

I'm keen on Fallout 4, going to grab it today. What else would anybody recommend. What's the story with Elder Scrolls Online.

I knocked a lot of enjoyment out of the Uncharted series. 2 & 4 in particular.

The Last of Us was the reason I switched from Xbox360 to PS4 and was the first game I played.

Went with Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid 5. Safe bets but strong bets.

F4 only €20 in Argos, which was a surprise to me. I was expecting to pay way more than that.

I just have no interest in playing online, never have. Tried it with GTAV when it was new, just didn't enjoy it.

ESO is all online and its really fucking boring if you don't group up. Just avoid it, its not like the other Elder Scrolls games. If you want that sort of thing get Witcher 3. You have Fallout 4 anyway, that'll take a while.

feck, I paid a lot more for it very recently! hard to get the time to invest in such a vast game though! need a few weeks off work.

Had a good run at Fallout 4 over the long weekend, very into it now after not being sure during the first short while.

Bit odd that the game just hands you the power armour in the first mission though isn't it. Would have thought you have to earn that stuff. I don't even want it, just left it behind in Concord until I feel like I need it.

Maybe there is much better power armour somewhere that you need to level up to using that first one.

There is better power armor but you don't need that one to find it.

if you get it you can carry way more stuff and you just have to get the fusion cores, which are easy enough if you look online. I used it a fair bit. I just kept robbing them off those lads in teh airship when you saw them around the place. I think if you try to pickpocket them it makes them step out of them, then just kill them, they;re usually on their own so no witnesses
