  1. Since Xmas played a bit of Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 I guess I'm about a quarter of the way through both. Would have been further but takes a while to get back into it when you've left it for a few weeks. Anyone played either of these through to the end?

    Hi mate, played Witcher 3 till the end including the 2 DLC's. Probably my favourite ever game, so much detail and the story is incredible. When you complete it i'd advise getting the 2 DLC's as they're just as good as the main game imo.

    Have you got into Gwent yet? Christ i lost some hours playing that game.
     
  4. Got everything when it was on offer on steam.

    Not sure was about a month since I last played it and my memory isn't good. I know I got lost in the game for hours doing some side quests.

    Its the card game within the game. There are a lot of quests as you build / improve your Gwent decks and people selling new cards all over the place. Its oncredibly addictive once you start to understand the rules.

    Rockstar were caught out a few years ago when an e-mail was leaked that suggested they had put pressure on an Aussie lads mag to give a glowing review of Red Dead Redemption. The email was allegedly sent by a Rockstar publicist to staff at the magazine and read: "This is the biggest game we've done since GTA IV, and is already receiving Game of the Year 2010 nominations from specialists all around the world. Can you please ensure Toby's [the reviewer] article reflects this — he needs to respect the huge achievement he's writing about here".

    I used to contribute to a games magazine for which I worked on retro stuff, so this kind of pressure was never something I experienced (you're not going to get Codemasters lobbying for a great review of a 20-year-old game!), but I had heard of other writers who received e-mails of a similar ilk to this one - almost always from the same usual suspects, too, and not necessarily game publishers.

    We're not talking about money changing hands or anything like that. Rather, it would be along the lines of "If you don't give this game a good review then you might have trouble getting hold of a preview/review copy of our next game" (not as blunt as that, of course).

    It's for this reason that I always take reviews with a pinch of salt, especially with AAA games.

    I've not yet played the game or been able to test the OFs myself, but a few of the guys I used to make OFs with back in the PS2 days are now contributing at PES Universe. I've heard good things and will probably use theirs if I ever get round to buying the game:

    Read a review on Mass Effect Andromeda the other day, absolutely hounded the game, they said even though they've only played 4 hours, it's been no fun and the dialogue (which there's more of than any other ME game) is shockingly wrote... they said the writers of the dialogue should be ashamed of themselves!

    I think I'm going to steer clear, clearly EA's influence has done what it does best!
