Along with Ben Higgins and I"m sure a few others, I am playing the new version of DOOM!!! Or I will be playing it for about an hour or so, once it loads. It's taken about 20 minutes so far and is still trying to copy stuff to my PS4 internal drive.

WARNING: Games can be addictive and get in the way of practice so try to keep gaming to under an hour per day at most if possible. This means you will probably be behind your pals that game in terms of leveling up, etc. But don't get sucked in to that.

DOOM is very fun but NOT FOR KIDS. It's packed with wads of game imagery that's just not going to let the little ones sleep well depending on the kid in question. Here is a pic. smile.gif

I was hoping you'd be saying about DOOM! It's just epic, isn't it?

No it definitely isn't for kids - and that's the way it should be wink.gif

I almost forgot! DOOM IS EPIC!!

The campaign is awesome. It really is a bit sppoky and disturbing in parts which is what makes it have such an impact. Only when you find a mini doom doll in a satanic church under a research lab full of the devils minions do you remember it's just a game smile.gif

Last night I did something I thought was impossible for a bit and beat the "Extreme" versions (they make it harder after you beat the game) of a Level (#29 in Metal Gear Solid 5 called "Metal Archea") I never thought I'd beat. The secret.... Air Strikes!!! smile.gif
Anyone else played MSG5? If so, did you get to and or beat this level? If you were frustrated by it, here is how to beat it without going nuts.

It's on my "Game" channel on youtube Enjoy! PS4 makes it easy to grab/upload to youtube.

@fzalfa: I'm always surprised to see how a PC is holding up lately. My dad ran a 3.4 Core2Duo and a GTX680 for years playing Skyrim, Fable, Diablo 3, and so on.

@ Everyone Else: I'd love to get Doom, just that $60 price tag really kills it when I hear people say its under 6 hours for the campaign. I'm hoping it goes on sale during Steam's Summer Sale! biggrin.gif Me and a buddy have been doing a game day for many years now, I hardly game any other day. That way I don't get burnt out nor let it consume my life. We have been playing the Dark Souls series. All the way from Demon to Dark Souls 3 including Bloodborne. I no longer own a PS4, but if you like the Souls series give Bloodborne a shot it was really good.

I'm not currently playing a game at all, not really sure what I want to start on.

I use REDBOX (those kiosk things outside grocery stores) to rent games to avoid the crazy price tags. I"m using a console (ps4 now that I sold my xbox360) so I just rent the games and play the campaign mode mostly smile.gif It's 3 bucks a day to rent games at a Redbox, so usually just rent for the weekend smile.gif I'll keep an eye out for the ones you mentioned. Never played souls or bloodborne, so I"m up for giving them a go smile.gif

I loved MGS 5.... I can't remember if I did the extreme version of that level. I think I did... I just stayed on the roof and sniped them with the Brennan tongue.gif

That game made me interested in the rest of the series so I went and played them all in order after that, except MGS 4, which is only playable on PS3 - which I don't have. I just watched an entire playthrough instead. Out of all the games in existence, I think the story and emotional content of MGS is beyond anything.

Remember you were on about Wolfy: The Old Blood... well I got that the other day along with Bloodborne. I loved the New Order but I only recently got a PS4 so had to wait to play TOB.

Bloodborne is great.. I was unsure whether I'd get on with it because of its notorious difficulty and the fact that I'm not a patient man..... especially when it comes to games... but I love Bloodborne. It always leaves me wanted to go back and play more as soon as I can.

DOOM is epic. Ever since it was announced back when Wolfenstein The New order came out I've been waiting for it.

The campaign is longer than 6 hours I'd say, if you don't rush through it without paying any attention to the lore or exploring the maps. I took my time with it. But I always baulk at paying top coin for new games as well so I can understand your reticence. Wait a while and when it drops in price, grab it. It's just one of those games which feels good. Nothing to it but to kill demons.

I was so impressed with MSG5 that I bought it. I usually just rent games or just download the demo or what not. But this game was something special that I can't believe I'd missed when it came out. I'd never played any of the series as they looked to "stealth based" for my tastes, but in MSG5, you can go head to head with every foe and skip the stealth if you don't want to sneak about and just go Rambo instead smile.gif Which is what I ended up doing. Built out my entire base, it's HUGE. Completed all the missions and the "Extreme" versions of them. Now I"m doing the "infiltrations" where you attack other folks bases. The game is endless it seems so great value for money smile.gif

I have to agree that the emotional depth of the game was impressive. The story line with the female sniper named "Quiet" who first tried to kill our hero, then sorta falls in love with him, then has to leave after sacrificing herself to save him, was quite good. You actually felt something when she left.

Folks were so upset that she leaves, that they now can get her back if they play her capture mission 7 times in a row on extreme and capture not killer her every time. Needless to say that is a TALL order as one round from her rifle kills you on extreme.

Amazing game. I was wrong to judge it harshly.

Glad to hear you got a PS4!! CONGRATS! Amazing system smile.gif I had a 360 and went sony instead of xbox one. Wanted to get back to play station. Always preferred them honestly. Some of the titles that are playstation only are truly amazing. KILL ZONE SHADOWFALL is one of them. Not as emotionally deep as MSG5, but crazy fun and amazing graphics.

Glad you got the other Woflenstein game! I loved that as well smile.gif I"ll give bloodbourne a try too!

My inner Geek is really stoked that you got the rare Glacier version of the PS4 smile.gif As you know, I bought the limited edition Star Wars Battlefront PS4 with Darth Vader on top. My inner Geek was stoked about that when it showed up smile.gif

XBOX 360 OWNERS:


You can use USB connected external hard drives (2 Terrabytes per drive) now on your xbox 360. So no more "running out/low on space" warnings when you download new demos/games/saves etc. So it's time to attach some drives to your 360 smile.gif And you have to power it all, so...

anyone planning on venturing into the VR market? Ive got the PS4 VR headset on pre-order and I cannot freakin wait to get it!
Although I like the full body tracking of the HTC Vive but the bang for your buck from sony is just too good imo.
Some ( practically ALL ) of the games Ive seen for it look amazing.

Im also old enough to still be impressed that you can actually buy a quality home VR headset. kinda makes me feel like Im living in the future cool.gif



I can see a resident evil type horror game properly freaking you the hell out!

I'm really wanting to give one a try for sure smile.gif I'm hoping they have them at the local GAME STOP shop. They usually have demos of all the new bits. Some of the titles look amazing.
