Finally picked up Dirt 4. Got the steelbook day 1 edition for £20 from Tesco. Not quite day 1 like.

@JohnnyShoulder Shadow Tactics got tricky quite early on. There's a crazy amount of trial & error that goes into the gameplay. This ended up taking too much time for my enjoyment so I just started "clearing out" as many enemies as possible. You get a better score if you avoid killing of-course. A great thing though, is that the game is built around save-scumming, so loading and saving is very fast and convenient ... even on the PS4. My only complaint of the game is that knocking people out was completely pointless; they wake up after 20-30 seconds and run to the nearest enemy to warn them, which brings more enemies to the map. Consequently I did not spare that many civilians lol.

Madden was fun the last time I played one (think it was #15). It's not an easy game to figure out though, much of the terminology was never explained, what everything means. For example, the tactical otions all have different names but I never understood what they signified. If you want to go deeep into tactics it can become a very complex game. The actual gameplay was not that hard to grasp; you kick, tackle, run and throw. It was fun to play even if you just go along with the default tactics.

@themcnoisy Happy driving. I only found out about the steelbook after I'd bought it, it's pretty snazzy.
I'm still playing Dirt 4, the campaign never ends. Still fun though

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Bonbonetti Thanks for the heads up on both games. What does ST play like? Is it like the old Commandos games?

@tomassi The last Madden i played was on the 360, no idea what year though. I used to watch with my bro when we were younger, he still follows it and has been to a couple of matches at Wembley. I have a very basic understanding of the rules. Philadelphia Eagles used to be my team, i think they did quite well last season

@JohnnyShoulder Yes it did remind of Commandos, as well as Desperados and Robin Hood. Although, I consider Shadow Tactics to be a more difficult game on Normal level than the above games.

@Gremio108 thank you. I have been meaning to pick either dirt or dirt 4 up for some time and will get stuck into it later! Just need to finish these god damn pes 18 trophies.

@tomassi Let me knows how it plays on PS4, I'm still kind of on the fence for this game!

@Kidfried hi mate, which game are you on the fence about, and I will try and persuade or disuade you!

@JohnnyShoulder @tomassi For (American) football games I have really been enjoying Mutant Football League. Yeah it's more of an arcade sports game like NFL Blitz or NBA Jam but there is strategy to it as well with the plays and such. Highly recommend it if you like a mix between Sim and Arcade sport's games.

I bought Agents of Mayhem for $40 last week and now it's $8 on the PSN store, LMAO...dammit. It's kinda generic, minus the different abilities the different agents have, but well-done so it makes for an enjoyable experience. I'm only a couple hours in, and there hasn't been anything I would consider "funny" for a comedy game, so that's probably the most disappointing aspect!

GERA GERA PO.

Little Witch Academia and Forgotton Anne. They are both really good. 'Little Witch' captures the charm and whimsy of the anime perfectly, 'Forgotton Anne' has a similarily luxurious narrative and lets you make more ethical decisions than I had expected. Two good games with a strong emphasis on storytelling, characters and Visuals.

For no reason other than impulse, I bought Infamous First LIght as I missed it on Plus I think. Going very cheap and I played Second Son last year and liked it.

@themcnoisy I like both but prefer Dirt 4, it has so much more content and the driving is still very good. Dirt Rally looks better graphically and is more challenging to play, but it never felt like a complete - or even finished - game to me.

@Rudy_Manchego great game! Did they give first light the 4k hdr treatment? Second son looks absolutely incredible with the patch.

@Bonbonetti yeah I have been meaning to get either for ages. Then GT Sport and Project Cars 2 got good reviews so I bought them instead. Looking forward to it!

@themcnoisy I hope so as Second Son was the absolute t*ts in 4k.

@themcnoisy First Light actually looks better in HDR in my opinion because its mostly dark with the Neon that works exceptionally well to show off the contrast. Its like walking in Tokyo or New York with all the neon lighting - that looks so much better at night which is why First Light works better overall.

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

@Bonbonetti Regarding rally games, I seem to remember you mentioned playing Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo a while a go. Do you like it?

A lot of people are put off by the graphics but I think it’s a solid rally game with a huge amount of content and a very decent career mode. Reminds me of Colin McRae Rally.

@JJ-Firl I like Loeb Rally a great deal, it's one of my alltime favourite rally games, alongside WRC Rally Evolved (2005), Colin McRae Dirt (2007), WRC 7, and Sega Rally Revo.

Personally, I thought the graphics were really good, especially for a Milestone game, since they don't have the same massive budget as Codemasters, Turn10 (Forza) or Polyphony (Gran Turismo). Unfortunately, the fact that developers having different budget levels is something too many gamers don't take into account when making judgements about a game. There's a gap in people's logic and reasoning.

I don't like the rallycross in Loeb Rally though. I've never been a big fan of rallycross regardless of game; it's my least favourite event in Dirt Rally and Dirt 4 as well. I like watching it on TV, but don't enjoy playing it that much. When it comes to rally games I'm all about the stage rallies, which is why I enjoy the WRC games so much, because that's all they have (more or less).

One of the most impressive things about Loeb Rally are stage designs, which are fully modelled after real-life rally stages, it's the first rally game developer to actually do this (to my knowledge). Most developers will simply take inspiration from existing stages and design their own ones. It's a game feature which did not get the attention it deserved, in my opinion

I'm something of a Sebastien Loeb nerd. I'm more impressed by what he has achieved than what any F1 driver has done, for example. So having this much "Loeb content" in a game is a really cool thing to me, to relive his hallmark events. I like that Milestone built two entire games around racing characters, Loeb and Rossi, it's a cool concept that I hope they can return to one day.

I like the physics as well, it's very challenging, on the same difficulty level as Dirt Rally in my opinion. It's good to have games that are more technical in this way. Most rally games are not that difficult when it comes the physics, they are more about mastering the road than the car.

Lastly, there's a large amount of content, which is great if you are a single-payer gamer.

That pretty much sums up my opinion of Loeb Rally. There's a lot for me to like about the game. I actually bought and played some of it on PC first, but I had some performance issues, so I rebought it for the PS4 and it works as a charm. Like most of Milestone's games, it works much better on console.

On a whim, I re-bought Destiny 1 (to clean up trophies...had it back in 2014) for $3 used while at a game store, and the codes inside the case still worked for The Taken King + Expansions 1+2 (a $20 value). Now I feel vindicated after spending $40 on the now $8 on-sale game "Agents of Mayhem" (mentioned above) LOL.
