Just played Dead Space 3 co-op, and before we knew it 4 hours had past. :joy: When playing a game online time seems to move faster than singleplayer, as the saying goes 'Time flies when having fun'

@RevolvingPrawn and I managed to get one good race in on F1 15. He was winning and I was 4th, I pitted 2 laps early to try and undercut Rosberg and/or Hamilton. I ended up 2 seconds ahead of Prawn to my surprise, but it wouldn't last. Brazil is very hard on front tyres, so mine died with 4 laps to go so he go past me, but worse was to come. I ran out of fuel with exactly a lap to go  :( Didn't run rich fuel at all, and used lean for two laps, yet I ran out and he was fine. Not sure if using manual gears uses more fuel, but it was rather annoying in what was a fantastic race up until that point.

It was actually the best race we'd had up until that last lap lol. It was like we finally found how the game worked best for us racing and then it screwed you. Really annoying too how we both ran the same fuel mix throughout the race, and when you went to the low mix I changed to it as well about half a lap later. Yet when I finished I had +4 laps of fuel left, and you ran out one lap before the finish. Some silly issues with this game.

Told you you'd find "my name Jeff" funny ;)

Good news! My copy of F1 2015 arrived in the post today. To celebrate (and to keep me entertained since there's no cricket on tonight (thanks England)) I may possibly be streaming after the International Champions Cup match tonight. @Lukedfrt.

Hmm might buy Resident Evil 4 HD from GMG for just over £5, just for the nostalgia as I had it on GameCube and loved it :D

Playing Alice Madness Returns have to say I quite like the graphics on it. It's a bit cartoony but it kind of works well with this sort of game.


Have to say the combat in this game is hard even on easy

Reiza are doing crowdfunding for a new sim racing game. It sounds promising, and they're almost at their (really low) target.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/reiza-simracing-bonanza#/

$25 will get you access to the beta, $35 will get a copy of Stock Car Extreme as well. They've got some good sounding plans, and from what I've heard their previous games are really good. I may buy in as its pretty cheap.

Yea I have played their previous games, they are brilliant. They were all built using the Rfactor engine, is this one the same?

Edit: Just read it and it all sounds promising. Same engine but now they can add stuff without using plugins, and it's going to support DX12.  They have F1 cars based from the V10 era, that's enough for me to want it.

Finally gave The Evil Within a chance after not liking it. Now I love it, I'm not sure why but I'm really enjoying it. If they make another I hope they use a different engine, as ID Tech 5 is awful.

Extremely good news as I really like the look of that new TR game. I just didn't want  to get it on Xbox as I'd find the controls too awkward to use, so the fact that it won't be as long a wait as I was fearing it might be sounds good. Looks like there are a few QTE's in there but I hope there aren't as many as in the first game as personally I think they overdid that in the first game. It's probably my only complaint with the first game though as the rest of it is good. May go back in and run through the game again at some point but have my hands full working through other games atm.
