Our Son has been playing quite a bit of the Forza series of late and wants a PS4 from Santa.

Is it worth getting GT4, and if so, is there any point in getting Forza 7 for the X-Box?

Asking because I don't much go in for the driving games.

Thanks.

New footage from The Last of Us 2. It's very violent so be warned, but looks amazing.

Still not sure I managed to get over the anxiety and stress-levels of the first game. Masterful gaming/writing the last game. They've a bloody high bar to surpass.

Anyone watched the honest game trailer of the previous one?

Don't think its been mentioned previously but - XBOX One has a Blue Angels Flight Sim out at start of December, Not expecting much, but for a tenner its not expensive.

Playing a fair bit of PES2018 online. Needs a couple of minor gameplay tweaks, which hopefully the next patch will address, but looks and plays better than any football game I can think of. The action's been slowed down so now the pace of the game is much more like the real sport. The online co-op mode is excellent too, or at least it would be if Dan Butcher realised what the "pass" button was for...

Currently filling some time with Call of Duty WWII. Not a total disaster of a game, quite liking it to be fair, but will be shelved once Santa drops Star Wars Battlefield 2 and Gran Turismo down my chimney :smile:

Enjoying Mad Max at the moment, though I just bought Elite: Dangerous in the Steam sale, so I may be gone for some time.....

Thank you so much for the tip off LN, Amazon order has now been cancelled and I've bought it through Argos click and collect for £8 less!! :clap:

You're welcome. ShopTo were the absolute cheapest place, but you'd have to wait for delivery from them.

Amazon's 'sale' is anything but.
I got bored yesterday & looked up the current prices of stuff I've bought over the last few months.......some of you won't be surprised that the prices have gone up - in some cases by 20-25% - and that includes items which are supposedly discounted in the 'Black Friday' sale.

You have to know what you're looking for and be smart about it, but the price Amazon were charging above was good value on the face of it - bear in mind it's a game that was released just over a month ago at a price of £50.

It's not quite so good when you know that they were as low as Argos at £18.99 for the best part of 24hrs, and that ShopTo had undercut them both, but they're all good savings on something so new.

See all these people ranting online about how Black Friday is a con etc. It's great, so long as you know what you're after, you know what the prices normally are and shop around to make sure you get the best deal. Price tracking sites are very useful.

Assuming it's the standard PS4 version you're discussing.......Amazon are now also doing it for £18:99 ( if you're an Amazon Prime member )

Edited to add.....
As for the game itself, there seem to be a majority of reviewers on Amazon who aren't fans of it for various reasons.

I was a beta tester and played the open demo. I'm aware of the limitations, but I enjoy the game. Also, a lot of the complaints (lack of cars, tracks and little offline content) are being patched in, starting this week, and all for free - not paid DLC or season passes here. :up:

Don't think they do it for the PC ( or if they do, it's probably for Windows 10 :sick: ) so it doesn't matter to me.
Last driving games I bought were the original PC versions of EA's 'Need For Speed' & Atari's 'GT Legends', so that would be about 8-10 years ago. :shock:

Saw that on a couple of the Twitch guys I follow. Bit of a laugh but possibly too much clicking around for my vodka sodden reflexes. But more power to their elbow and I hope they are planning a similar game based on getting one's pals home after a pleasant evenings "debriefing".

New update coming to GTA online in a couple of days, including this aircraft which looks decidedly familiar.
