Re: Steam Weekly Top Sellers: October 17th, 2016

Why is it counted 3 times? This is actually explained in the post: On the Mafia III Steam page there are three items available for purchase - the base game, the Digital Deluxe edition and the Season Pass. Each of those items are counted separately for the charts, but they're all listed with the sam...

Re: Is PlayStation VR bad for your health?

My physio says he’s going to get rich from mobile devices. And when I see people on the train with their necks bent scaringly low, I can’t help but agree with him. My occupational therapist took one look at my wrists, said "Oh, you are a gamer, aren't you?" and dollar signs flashed in his eyes. (I ...

Re: We Happy Few brings the Joy to PC, Xbox One

I don't think I'll play until it's officially released. When we spoke to Compulsion about the game at E3, they seemed pretty savvy about the fact that people are going to feel that way. That's why the Early Access release doesn't feature story mode, to keep Something Special for those who are happy...

RoastBeefTips.com Seriously, this was one of the ads showing on the front page of Player Attack when I was visiting. It is glorious, and contains a recipe for "Delicious Roat Beef". ...I don't even know. https://static.wixstatic.com/media/077fa1_c736b7b160824182bde2f41e236e4484~mv2.jpg/v1/fill/w_41...

Not much a fan of Dead Rising (although it nailed the b-grade zombie trash genre), but I agree the first Hitman was very enjoyable.

Re: Aussies: Get this 1TB Uncharted 4 PS4 for $399

Apparently its unofficial but the 4K PS4 will only support 4K BD/Images and not gameplay games. That's one story, sure. The other is that games will ship with two modes - standard PS4 mode and "Neo" mode, to enable 4K gameplay. I don't know. A lot of it sounds like things that people would like to ...

Game of thrones is going to be spoiled every episode if you don't download it or stay up until 4am to watch it live on Foxtel. 10:30 Monday morning, Adelaide time.
