    Maybe. It'll most likely be a grindfest paired with p2w though. And it probably won't even release in EU/US.

    Want to play this game but Smash comes out tonight at midnight and I'm just about to put down Destiny.

    Too many damn games this holiday season!

    I think it's better than Origins and 2 (which isn't a difficult challenge). It's huge. It took me 15 hours to get to the point where I felt like I was through the opening of the game. Not only that, but the areas you explore actually feel fairly vast, are well differentiated from each other and look gorgeous. It's like Mass Effect 1's feel of planet exploration, except there's way more interesting things to do and it's not all a shapeless, bland lump of space rock. Writing, characters and story seem fairly in line with Bioware rpgs, combat feels good and it has a tactical mode if you like that. Definitely one of the better games of this year.

    I pretty much bought the Wii U just for Mario Kart and Smash, but there really are (finally) so many good titles for it now. Smash is consuming my life, though... Glad I was able to pick up a GameCube adaptor without a reservation, as they seem to be in very short supply.

    Well done, fnatic's cs go team. :facepalm: Way to ruin a brand that's been built up for well over a decade.

    They were behind 3-13 in the dreamhack cs:go tournament. Then they started to boost, which in itself isn't that noteworthy (I think, don't really play cs:go). The thing is, they boosted and pixelwalked (i.e. walked on areas where they shouldn't be able to walk), which is forbidden. Hence, the boosted sniper had vision over pretty much the whole map. They went 16-13.

    Edit: Apparently not pixelwalking. Anyway, weird game.

    Do you have a gameplay link? I'd be interested in seeing it. I haven't hacked cs since like 1.5 lol

    Anyone playing Destiny? Been hooked to this game last few weeks. I was a bit late to the party.

    Had a lot of fun playing a couple of simple indie local multiplayer games lately.

    Nidhogg and Towerfall: Ascension were good times. Simple mechanics but tight gameplay. Was surprising how entertaining Nidhogg was in a local-multiplayer situation...was also a blast to watch so I might do a tournament bracket at some point.

    We were playing on an awkward mix of Xbox 360 controller, non-analog-stick usb controller, and keyboard...people were capable of winning with any of them, but I've got to get a matched set just to make things fair.

    One must play The Last of Us. Storyline is one of the most epic ever.

    Oh yeah. Can´t wait for Uncharted 4. Hope naughty dog ports Uncharted 1-3 to PS4 in a bundle prior to the release of A thief´s end.

    It is. After 20 the grind comes, and oh boy will you grind. You´ve got to get your light level up with special armor that has light level. I had a blast with the game for a good while but then I just stopped playing. Too many other games to play.

    Stay strong. I actually think 20+ is more fun. You get to do raids and strikes. The vault of glass (one of the raids) is probably the best thing in the game. You also have nightfall strikes and weekly strikes. Getting up to 20 was the grind for me. The story is non existent.

    Yeah, I now am 29. But literally two of my friends have PS4s and Destiny, so basically it means I will need to whore out to a site like DestinyLFG to get something together for the VoG and EOC raids. Annoying.

    Is there a SF gamer-tag thing going? On PSN, I'm tkn__x (two underscores), feel free to add me, but let me know you are from SF. Definitely up for a weekly VoG run or daily/weekly runs.
