Having a dabble with FSX in DirectX10 mode, haven't touched it since rebuilding this system. Doesn't half increase the frame rate but some of the ground textures don't display properly. Can't believe they canned the development :(

Playing F1 2012, bought it for just £6.69 yesterday from GAME. Traded a load of games in, plus my loyalty points and it went from £39.99 to £6.69.

Good value there, and I got a receipt saying that if I trade it in before October 7 2012 I get a GUARANTEED £33 trade in value.

Currently got FSX running with EFIS/MCP and PFD data being displayed on iPad over Wireless lan using an app called Airtrack which I must say is pretty darn cool (but not cheap). The app was originally designed to run with Xplane 10 with which you can also use it to remotely generate flight plans. It's great being able to set the autopilot at the touch of a screen without having to mess about with the mouse or buy add-on hardware boxes.

Yep, played it a few times. I started with the challenges though, failed the unbeaten one. Did the relegation one 4 times, each with different teams. I have already racked up over 100 hours game time on it.

I concur. Any game promoting an unhealthy interest in under-arm regions should be suppressed.

Great game but very, very buggy. I had it at launch though so maybe they've patched most of the problems out now ?

I've just finished Far Cry 3 which was stunning. Looking forward to some of the excellent titles scheduled for release this year.

I probably started playing it after the lions share of the bugs were sorted. Only one I really noticed was my assassin tomahawk just went missing and never showed up anywhere in the armoury (I prefer bashing people with a big axe anyway ;) )

Just started Far Cry 3 on the PS3 myself, managed to get it for 26 quid at Argos. It's certainly a massive step-up from the last one but must have spent an hour last night trying to find more wild boar to make an ammo pouch.

Not sure on the current cost but FSX is quite old now and has not been replaced by a new version yet. I think i have seen it going for around £15 but can't remember where.

Those images you see are all of add ons as the default FSX stuff is rubbish.

Just finished playing the campaign of Spec Ops: The Line. Had a decent storey to it and only cost me £10 so happy with that. Not really interested in the MP side of it so probably wont even touch it.

Next for me now will probably be Dead Space 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Finally installed FM2013 yesterday after having it sat here still with the plastic wrapping on for months. Always a dangerous move having a "dabble" with something like this as it's something akin to having a quick game of Sim City... going to be in big trouble when that comes out.

The Sims 3.

Having two issues, when I register the game it accepts it, but register again (IIRC for the store) it is rejected.

I cannot install patches, as I get the following message.

I have checked the registry and it is a R2 install, and the game was bought online via a UK seller.

MadGamer 22-01-2013 19:54

Re: what game are you playing
 
Stupid question, but did you select English UK during the install as the language?

MadGamer 23-01-2013 20:10

Re: what game are you playing
 
I would either re install selecting uk English and then applying the correct update, as it sounds like the wrong language was selected, which would mean the updates downloaded and installed the wrong patch

I actually installed this game for a friend earlier today and there was no UK English option only English option was English US. There was some option for location further through the install and that defaulted to Canada as she has a laptop she bought when living in canada. I just changed that to UK and after install it patched and worked fine.

This was an Origin copy though so it was mostly automated and required little effort. Hope you get your copy working okay Hom3r.

adzii_nufc 05-02-2013 09:11

Re: what game are you playing
 
With regards to the Sims 3 issue.

I'm unaware if it works without Origin but I assumed Origin was the norm now.
Enter the CD-Key into Origin and it will install the game and all patches automatically then it can be easily ran from Origin.
Or try get the default and freshly installed game with no patches integrated into Origin and see if Origin does anything with it.

Got Battlefield 3: Premium, Fifa 2013, Sims 3, Burnout Paradise and some other low key stuff in my Library that all installed the way above. Sims 3 was bought the same way as yourself as was Battlefield. Also note: English (US) is the only English option when installing EA games.

EDIT: Just cropped my mind, with the region issue it could be a case that you've been sold a Russian CD key, these have been becoming ever popular online now. No idea if the Sims 3 is region free but it's a thought.

For anyone that didn't know, Battlefield 1942 is now free on Origin in the Demos section or here: http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield-1942

My Collector's Edition came yesterday.

But, given the overwhelmingly awful reviews it has had (awful, not mixed), I'll be taking it back to GAME on Saturday for a full refund.

If it was the normal version I'd probably risk the drop in re-sale value by opening it and seeing if it really was as terrible as made out, but I'm not willing to do that with the CE!

I may buy it cheap pre-owned later on...

Glad to see someone is enjoying it. I was planning on buying it but given the poor response it seems to have gotten I think I'll make it a rental instead.

I'm still hoping ill enjoy it to. The last one didn't get great reviews but I enjoyed it anyway so am hoping this one goes the same way for me.

It's not awful but its also not Resident Evil. Its a generic over the top third person action shooter. If you accept that then it can be enjoyable but if your expecting a good Resident Evil game you will be disappointed.

That being said I enjoyed it much more than the recent Aliens game. Very, Very disappointed with that. Buggy AI, Unreliable guns, Poor cover system and being shot through the wall a couple of times.

It's just a game that feel's very unfinished and I have to wonder if it even went through any sort or QA testing at all. I expected so much more :-(

If you are into the old style 2d well 2.5d games then I've just been playing one on steam got released the other day....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPdleC0Y9tg


The Showdown Effect is a 2.5D multiplayer action game inspired by 80’s and 90’s action movies. Champions from throughout time fight to death for fun, for glory and for awesome.

Just finished Tomb Raider and it is one of the best Campaign games I have ever played it is fantastic.

This has annoyed me though from a review

Quote:

It has to be said, right off the bat, that Tomb Raider borrows one or two notes from Naughty Dog’s adventures series – most evidently in the game’s over-the-top action set-pieces.

Just as players have witnessed Nathan Drake scramble to freedom in a burning mansion, or flee from death in a capsizing ocean liner, in Tomb Raider they’ll see Lara Croft scrabble and claw for survival through all manner of hell.
How dare they liken it saying it borrow one or 2 notes from Uncharted. Lara blooming Croft has been doing this since the PS1 if anything Uncharted copied Tomb Raider

Technically she's been doing it since the Sega Saturn ;)

I agree though the game is amazing.

Might have to get it when the GOTY or Ultimate edition(s) arrive.

Talking of said editions, what were people's favourite games last year that I can now pick-up on the cheap? I didn't really buy much last year.

Mass Effect 3, Far Cry 3, Forza Horizon, Borderlands 2, Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3.

I know, all mainstream games but I loved them all.

Steam and other crap game managers is why i will never by a game for a pc anymore, all they do is fill your system with crap that makes system boot take for ever.

Re: what game are you playing
 
I downloaded both files in about an hour earlier on. I'm on 20Mb.

Well looking at my routers traffic manager it currently downloading at 714k.

very poor for a big company.

what they should do is allow you to these game update before it officially released avoiding the bottle neck.

Re: what game are you playing
 
That would be sweet. It looks like that type of thing works on PC with games so I wonder how well it'd work on a console with DLC? I can see how it'd work with BF3 though. You'd download the DLC and then on the day you'd download the update. It'd be better than it is now, IMO.

sniper ghost warrior 2

don't bother - it seems to have all the crappy elements of 'sniper' roles from the arcade games;
aim assist you cannot turn off
kill cam you cannot turn off
crossing the map to go stabbing (it's a sniper theme, not recon)
only 2 (yes TWO) maps
shoddy textures (even though it's on CryEngine3) meaning a complete inability to hide in foliage
stupid radar map showing enemies whenever they shoot that (you guessed it) you cannot turn off
n.b. - this is on Multiplayer. I don't play single player. however, reviews are slating that too for being far too linear and the moment you stray from doing exactly what you are told to do, it's game over.

I was hoping after the flop that was the first Sniper Ghost Warrior, the makers may have bucked their ideas up (especially as they went on about how they have made a new game from the bottom up for this). it seems not. this is totally made for console gamers, and bad gamers at that. (yeah - I'm a PC gamer)

I just got Ghost Warrior 2 and personally i like it. Only done some single player at the moment so can't comment on the multiplayer side of it yet.
