None of your business mate
Resi Village and Deathloop are tempting.

Demons Souls is £30 at Smyths, if you have one near you mind, it's sold out online.

For anyone still looking for a console, I've snagged two reservations for mates...check your local Tesco. Everyone seems to be sleeping on Tesco.

Taking the plunge, been umming and aahing over it for a few weeks, this is a sign.
Same. It's downloading now. With my shopto psn store credit £50 bought for £42.97 I ended up getting it for just over £45 in the end. Far better than 69.99

Also folks, and sorry if already posted, don't miss the 12 month ps plus subscription for £29.85 at shopto using code EXTRATEN at checkout.

Is there an expiry for this? I'm poor until the 23rd.

The email said "while stocks last" but it's a digital code purchase which is, in theory, limitless. However, they may have a quota that they are prepared to sell at such a discount and so may 'sell out' as it were.

Yeah fair enough, cheers. Maybe I'll move some money from my savings as that seems a brilliant deal.

Really tempted to get Demon Souls, or guardians, or Resi. I have too many games though, what am I doing. :lol:

Picked Rider's Republic for £32 on Amazon.
Have you played it yet? It's fun but also disappointing. Nowhere near as cool as Steep was, or as satisfying, and the online community aspect is very meh even though it should be one of the main aspects. Still, it's enjoyable enough to pick up every now and then.

No it's arriving today.

It was more a game for me and my brothers to play together.

The events look cool and I can see it being a laugh when the three of us play together.

Just got it so cheers for the tip. Looks like I did the same in 2020 based on my ShopTo history :lol:

Weirdly it says my PS Plus renews 12/08/2022 though. I'm assuming it's US dates and it means 8th December?

Yeah it'll be good for that. I'm glad I bought it, just think it could've been so much more

I usually avoid these games as service titles but I can see this getting some love for a while. It seems to just be a fun sandbox to feck around in.

I just hope it isn't all locked behind stupid story progression because that aspect annoyed me in the trial.

Nah it's not. There's a bit to do before you have access to everything but then you can do what you want.

There is, but, I love that world so it's probably one of only few franchises that I'll accept grinding from.
It is really good. A bit cutscene heavy but I really enjoyed it.

I just didn't have the patience for doing the dungeon grind dozens of times to take on the final boss.

I might go for Guardians of the Galaxy. It came highly recommended by several sources I put a lot of trust it, like ACG and Digital Foundry, so yeah why not. Returnal is clearly the pick of the bunch though, easily the best game I've played on the system.

Oh hell no, I didn't do the dungeon grind either.

I love the sidequests that you stumble on by accident. The one with the freaky dancing guy in his underpants is hilarious. :lol:

Really tempted to get Resident Evil Village. Regarding that game, i know it reviewed well, but it seemed to have disappeared from the conversation really quick. I held off on buying the game because i loved the remakes and i didn't like the fact that they went back to First Person, but that's a good price.

Also tempted by Civilisation VI. Anyone on here played it? I haven't seen anyone ever talk about it, so probably not!

I enjoyed Village, nothing ground breaking but a solid game.

I've only played the series sporadically so I might not be the best source, but I picked this up on sale awhile back and its great for anytime I want to game but not throw myself into something story driven.
