What games are you playing at the moment?

You join groups of other players based on different preferences (platform, age, mic/no mic, Guardian level etc.) and you can post upcoming games that people can express an interest in joining. Eg. If you were planning to run VoG at 8pm tonight, you could create a posting that people sign up to in advance, then come 8pm you just invite them and away you go.

 

Worth a look.

With the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter upon us, I've been playing SF2, Super SF2, and Turbo versions of the game on a Raspi running zsnes under Emulation Station. I do have most of the SF MAME ROMS and a 14 button arcade stick. however I spent more game time on the SNES and not in arcades. The console versions never touched the CPS versions, but the SNES bagged the best port of the game.

Finally put down Fallout 4/Far Harbour (even with mods now being downloadable on Xbox One) for Overwatch.

 

I'm pretty rubbish at twitch gaming (no reflexes any more) but I can Torbjorn or Mercy my way to MVP a fair amount of times.

Stellaris.

 

I heart Paradox.

 

Nooo. They keep making new Hearts of Iron games and I keep getting drawn back in.

 

Overwatch is still the way to go, and I normally hate shooters.

HoI IV out soon. Might have to install III again. CK2 still gets loaded up on a regular basis. EUIV less so, but I'm keen to see what the more recent DLCs are like.

 

The only one I've not been able to get into is Vic2. I just can't fathom it.

Uncharted 4 (Great online multiplayer and great story)

Fallout 4 (Brilliant game)

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (Awesome and tense)

 

I was going to get Division but I've heard so many band things regarding glitches and bugs.

Ive sunk a decent amount of time into it and not noticed any myself though I did stop playing for a while and missed all the game breaking ones I heard about. As it currently is it's quite a good game. Not only do i reccomend playing alongside a friend/s its a necessity too as progression is nigh on impossible on your own.

My 4X days are long gone, and I'm gash at run and gun as well - so me and four other mates team up on Siege whenever we can - we're in the understanding that you can't really play this unless you've got comms with the majority of the team, and we don't talk to :censored:ing Americans. Not after the Kings Fall raid incident, so if there's 3+ team mates we usually jump on ranked.

 

Played Division since day one, and sold it about two weeks ago when it turned into :censored:ing Destiny.

 

Got Dirt Rally and Forza 6 to break it up a little, but currently enjoying the single player story on Frontline Revolution. The MP side of the game is a bit flimsy,

Making a shooter playable for non-twitch gamers is the one thing that drew me to Overwatch. There's no match scoreboard to start arguments or crowing, and team players (healers, shields, builders) can earn one of the 4 MVP slots per match just as easily as damage-dealers. I've been playing as a turret builder and a healer and enjoying it just as much.

Hmmm tell me more...!? I loved Rainbox Six Vegas 2 Co-Op, because whilst it was still run-and-gun it also required more than just twitch skills... not found anything close since.

I'm tempted with Overwatch - Battleborn looks like fun as well.

2 teams of 6, matched for skill (not sure how they calculate it, it's not level-based). One attacks/escorts, one defends. A dozen or so maps (more coming). No single player/story mode, all online. 21 heroes in different classes (more coming) - twitch covers about half of them, the rest are support/tank characters. I've been enjoying playing the turret builder - great for defence, lousy for attack - the healer, and the Joker-type who lobs grenades and sets traps. You have to have a complementary mix in your team to win (the match-up screen even advises you). You can swap characters as many times as you like mid-game. The lack of leaderboards helps - the post-match screen shows you the top 4 MVPs based on overall performance (not just kills).

Thanks, think I'll grab it once the price comes down.
