A thread to for all those small discussions or queries involving the wonderful world of videogames!

All related posts welcome. So if you have something to post and don't think it merits a whole thread or if you just want a general discussion of gaming habits, the videogame industry or gaming behaviour please feel free to contribute.


And to kick off....with the January sales heading our way and retailers already hoping to clear older games to make room for the new can anyone recommend some bargain PS3 games they've spotted?

I purchased the sadly undeated Neir recently and was very pleasantly surprised by how much fun it is.
On the shelf of my local supermarket ASDA I spotted a couple of games all under £15..has anyone played them?Are they worth a purchase?

ModNation Racers (I know this is fun)

Kane & Lynch 2 ( I never played the 1st or this? )

Castlevania (Not long released?)


All opinions welcome.

Kane & Lynch didn't get the best reviews, IO Interactive should probably go back to making Hitman games,

if anyone haven't played the indie game Braid and want to play it and donate a little to charity you should take a look at the Humble Bundle: http://www.humblebundle.com/

i recommend 3D Dot Game Heroes and Brutal Legend, both are going for pretty cheap these days... around $15-$20 each :P
another one i have seen cheap and i thought was fun when i had it was Pure... if you like 4 wheeler(quad) racing this is a great game!

Has anyone gotten Dead Nation? Is it any good? I think its a top down zombie survival game kind of like Dead Ops Arcade, I've been thinking about playing it.

it looks cool, a little more than dead ops, as there are power ups and things to find etc... check youtube for some videos of gameplay. looks cool though, i just have too many games already as it is ;) :P

great fun considering its low price point. Recommend playing in single player first to get used to the controls but quite addictive with online and co-op game modes, and global rankings. Finland still kicking everyones butt?! Guess it's cold and dark with nothing else to do there except shoot zombies.

i heard that the new castlevania was great, never played it though. i know that Brutal Legend was awesome. I'd get that if you like metal at all.

yay!!! someone else who has appreciated Brutal Legend as well :P i had a blast with that game :P
the story wasn't that bad either, kinda funny actually :P

i know WhoFan has been playing that new castlevania game...and he likes it i think... i actually just got Bayonetta from amazon for $14.99 the other day but still have not tried it out yet, couldn't pass that price since i always wanted to try it out. looked fun and the enemies i have seen looked really cool.

There's not one.

I liked the new Castlevania, it was pretty decent. I hated Brutal Legend.

why did you hate brutal? i really did not like the RTS portions of it, but loved just cruising around and flipping through songs and jumping off stuff :P i don't even like jack black, but i thought he was perfect for that roll :)

Mostly the bait-and-switch demo. And I agree, Jack Black was good for the role, but I couldn't get passed the RTS thing. I HAAAATE RTS games.

Runescape is pretty fun. I haven't played it in ages though.

3D Dot Game Heroes
Brutal Legend

$15-$20



That's awesome dude!:D

I really like 3d Dot Game Heroes, I've only never seen it in a store.:(

As for Brütal Legend... it's a classic I guess, and I love Jack Black.:D




Anyone else very upset that they changed the sexy platina blonde hair of Dante to black in DMC: 5? :

Thanks! I downloaded it last night, excellent, just what I was looking for. I think the same people who made Super Stardust made Dead Nation & I love Stardust, both games are fairly simple yet addictive & great fun!

Might brush it off for old times sake.
