Ahh, feels good to be back in the states. I had all my black friday stuff waiting for me and i also picked up the Devil May Cry for PS4. I never played it so it should be quite a good first time experience.
Next up, Final Fantasy Type 0 and Project Cars. if it gets released.....
FF Type Zero seems good so far. Have downloaded the demo but haven't got that far yet. I've got so little left to do on Majoras Mask 3D kind of wanna beat that first before getting too much into FF again.

I should watch a LP of it, just to see how it plays. When is the full-game coming out anyway?
Just finished the demo. I am here for Gladiolus without a shirt.
Honestly though it's fun. Kind of clumsy in places but it is only a demo. The other half is playing now though and the game's just frozen on him for the fight demonstration. Pressing L1 seems to do nothing.
For anyone still playing BL The Pre Sequel.......the new DLC is actually very good. Lots of references to the past games, interesting story (also adds to claptraps/Jacks backstory) and has an awesome new weapon rarity. reminds me a lot of the way Saints Row IV played.
I recently bought The Escapists off Steam recently and I actually find it very well done in terms of the pixel visuals. And the gameplay is actually good as well, I love the strategy behind it and how you really have to learn the routines of the prisons in order to escape.
I'm only talking about this because I need something to pre-occupy me until MK X comes out
Considering getting MKX on Steam here in a week or so. I liked the last one, but I didn't play it enough to really get my $60 out of it. Normally I would just Redbox it but I don't have a next-gen console to play it on, so it's $60 or nothing. I may wait for reviews to see if it's worth it.
Valve and Bethesda effectively killed the Skyrim mod community by allowing mod authors to charge for their mods today.
In effect, they are attempting to monetize something that they didn't realize would get so big. In reality, they are splitting the community because people aren't going to pay $5 for a mod when the GAME ITSELF is only $5. Mod authors will pull their mods from the free sites and make them exclusive to Steam because they have a chance at making money (even though Valve is taking 75% PERCENT of their fee). Worse yet, the Steam Workshop is charging for mods that may, or may not break your game (due to faulty creation, missing requirements or a half-dozen other things that COULD go wrong when Skyrim modding) and may rely on assets contributed by other mod authors with the intention of being free.
You know, I wouldn't have cared if they did this with the next game in the series. But trying to do it retroactively with Skyrim is going to just effectively kill the scene. The mod authors that do charge for their mods will get huge amounts of backlash, pissing them off and making them less likely to create mods in the future. The ones that don't charge will feel like chumps for not getting any money for their hard work, making them less likely to create mods in the future.
Rest in piece, Skyrim mod community. You were the best - I will miss you dearly.
Funny to consider that soon enough mod piracy might be a thing. I know the community, and someone else will upload it for others to get for free. There's been so much backlash I can't see this being sustainable by Valve or the community.
A much smarter alternative would have been an optional donation button.
As for me, I'm still madly in love with osu, as ever. If I work hard, I can reach my first long-term goal of being top 10 in Ireland this week!

That's been a thing in the Sims community forever. Free mods won't be a matter of can or can't, but a matter of morals. The modders can still make a bit of money from people willing to play by the rules though.
Still loving Bloodborne, still loving Driveclub, and now I have to make the difficult decision between Trials Fusion and LEGO Marvel Superheroes. I'm leaning towards the latter.
Valve pulled the plug on paid Skyrim mods today. It seems trying to take your cut of a pie without adding anything to it doesn't go over well. A lot of damage was done to the community over this though - and I expect they may be reevaluating future plans for other games in the Bethesda library.
Holy frak! My GF just bought me a PS4! Been playing an extended collection of different games, PlayStation plus is such a great cheesecake!
Never Alone, awesome story and setting. I really enjoy some Limbo-style game. It's set in northern Alaska where you play as a young inut girl and her arctic fox companion. Apotheon, which I didn't think I was going to like but it's well to awesome. I haven't played a metroidvania for a long time. Just started playing Dragon Age: Inquisition too, which will be my weekend, thought:
WITCHER 3 IS LESS THAN 2 WEEKS AWAY! HOLY CHEESE, THE HYPE IS REAL!
