@jamo do not get caught in the lvl 40 deal like I did. That lvl really means nothing anymore. Its the light level and all items play in that level. I got to lvl 40, and thought is this it??? That was just the beginning. Ran two of my characters through the nightfall this weekend, and found it challenging and a bit of fun. Some of the new strikes are really interesting as well, especially on heroic mode.

Anybody keeping up to date on the Star Citizen game? 

I stumbled upon this when I searched for PC Only games coming out. I found out this is a totally crowdsource funded game. They have gotten 94 million dollars in funding with over 1 million donors. 

The game looks like it's going to be awesome.

 We watched Pixels the other night and man did that bring back some memories lol.  Started with our old Atari then the "new" nes then snes then quit playing through my party years until our first son was about a year old and I insisted that he was over due for an Xbox.  Mostly played at night after everyone was off to bed.  Loved all the starwars games especially battle front and KOTOR 1 and 2, Tom Clancy Games Splinter Cell and Rainbow 6 on through Fallout NV(I found it before Fallout 3).  Find a Game sacrifice sleep for a month then lay off until another game caught my eye.  On the bright side my wife didn't have to get up when our kids awoke because I already was. A fact I think she later exploited when she gifted me fallout 3 with all of the expansion packs.  I suffered Burn out on the UFO and my days of console Gaming were finished.  Then a few years later I discovered Clash of Clans on my IPhone:8) I played that game for 2 years at a level of stupidity that I still fail to understand.  I still play console games with my kids from time to time usually sports games but otherwise have no desire for it.  But wait did someone say they'd come out with a new BattleFront hmm.... Maybe we should upgrade our console.

I'm not a gamer, but I sure can appreciate how good Battlefront looks. And Anna Kendrick saying the Guinness line. The marketing machine behind Star Wars is really something.

Started playing Fallout 4 last night,  it is a nice break from CoD and Destiny ... never played any of the Fallout games before, but I am really enjoying this the little I have played.

My bruv played the balls off Fallout New Vegas. It was really hard getting that TV for any other purpose for about a month. To the degree I play it's more sports games, but I messed around with it a bit when he left the controller alone. After all the lad has to eat and poop at some point.

He's supposed to be getting Fallout 4 tonight.

I got it on PC and started playing last night. The game looks amazing and so far I haven't run into any bugs or glitches, but I'm only about 4 hours into it. One thing I love about games like this is the shear number of hours the game can be played while still discovering new things and running into new encounters. I used to really like games like CoD and Destiny, but the repetitiveness of those games got to be too much for me in the past few years. Not to mention I am not a fan of the advanced movement they added to CoD. I lost track of how many hours I played Skyrim and Fallout 3, and I'm hoping Fallout 4 is the same.

Luckily there was squat on the tube yesterday anyway. My bruv spent all but 30 minutes for dinner playing Fallout 4 (Xbox 1). 

The game does look pretty nice graphically. The interface is basically the same as New Vegas. Has the same sort of vibe that the older game did. It's a good initial impression anyway.

I'm liking Fallout 4 so far. Same Fallout feel, whiche is great, and the new perks skill tree is interesting. Assumming I fixed the issue with my PS4, I'm going to enjoy this game a lot.

Yes, so far it's like they took the best elements of both NV and 3 and combined them with a much better looking graphics engine. The perks skill tree thing is going to take a bit of time to get used to, but I like it so far. I really enjoyed how they took a good amount of time to explain the history behind the game. The opening cinematic was awesome.

I bought Halo 5 and Black Ops 3, and may end up buying Fallout 4 and Need for Speed. But the minute Battlefront drops, that's all I'll be playing.

Not familiar w/Battlefront, but watching the game play vids - how hard is it to kill Darth Vader in it? Or can you?;

It does look amazing and I'm sure will be awesome, but I just don't have any interest in games that are just multi-player based.

Plus, no space battles. They were my favorite part of Star Wars games, growing up. I had a PC starfighter game that you had to use a joystick to play when I was a kid. I loved it.

I used to be big into multiplayer fps games, for years that's just about all I played. However, they have become boring to me, just the repetitiveness of the experience playing the same maps and doing pretty much the same thing constantly burned me out.

That used to be a lot of fun when my friends and I would get together and play Goldeneye on N64, but I never had any interest in playing Counterstrike, Socom, CoD, Halo, etc.

I went through my online game phase a long time ago. I don't care for it anymore.
