I bought the previous game three times: twice on PS3 (EU & EW) and once on iOS for iPad. I'm disappointed I won't get to play this one unless I decide to spend a decent amount on a PC. I'd buy it on PS4 in a heartbeat.

You bought an iPad, so I'm not sure you have much ground to stand on here.

Plenty of ground. I don't need to justify my lifestyle to you. A tablet has more uses to me than a gaming PC, and so does my home theatre where I prefer to play games.

Not when you're talking about costs. If you don't want one, that's fine, but to say expenditure is a major factor is pretty funny. Bragging about your home "theatre" only makes it more so.

Also, "a tablet" doesn't necessarily equate to "iPad" since there are many other better and simultaneously cheaper alternatives. Which was kind of my point: you pay out the nose for a certain brand/OS, then balk at buying a computer, which would get you better-playing versions of games (which you can also hook up to that fancy speaker system and TV). I dunno, I just thought it was amusing. Carry on.

I'm not bragging about anything. I was just explaining my preferences. Home theatre is a way to explain a TV, receiver, speakers, and set top boxes, in not so many words. Mine is very modest compared to whatever extravagance you thought up reading my comment. I just prefer a comfy chair and a controller to a desk and a keyboard. As an expenditure my living room gets many more hours of use than a computer. Music, movies, games, and it's where I watch web content like Giant Bomb.

Yabbering on about what brands I buy is petty. See past your own biases before you claim I pay through the nose for anything or claim I am getting a "worse" product. You don't know the first thing about my needs and desires and why a PlayStation and an iPad fulfilled those best for me. I mentioned both because they are some platforms that XCOM: Enemy Within was available on, and they were the versions of the game I loved playing and would buy XCOM 2 on them were it available. That was the only point: a PC is not what I have and I would love to support this game.

@grillbar: Great list, I agree with the games I've played. Worms, The Last of Us, Far Cry, Dying Light. All fun uses and different mechanics for molotovs. It's just so satisfying.

Thanks for the reply, I'm not interested in Hardline so this seems like the one for me. It does look like a steeper discount than Battlefield 3 had at this point in it's life. Hard to believe the game released just 15 months ago.

@spoonman671: Haha I've always agreed with that argument for L1/R1. The one problem I have is that the other function, aim down sights, feels much better with analog operation. Not many a console game that'll let you aim with L2 and fire with R1.

This week (27 Jan - 2 Feb) EA has discounted Battlefield 4 on PS4. The base game for $14 and the Premium Edition for $28. I was wondering how everyone feels after seeing all of the DLC and watching the patches roll through. I was really pleased with BF3 Premium by the time that all finished.

Did this game ever get fixed? Did the expanded content add to the experience? How actIve is PSN?

Thanks in advance.

This is a big surprise to me. Really sorry to see you leave, as one of my favourite site personalities. The podcast alone will leave a hole. Have good luck and fun in your future endeavours.
