Thanks for the suggestions all! Watched Twin Peaks back in the day and have been catching up on it again on Netflix. Will check out some of these when time permits and see what scratches that weird itch I never knew I had.

Hey, after deciding im done with Destiny I picked up D4 to fill the void until my next game and loved it. I had played Deadly Premonition (brokenly on PC and now going back to Xbox 360 version) but i'm looking for something (probably an Anime im guessing) with a similar tone as either of these games. Any suggestions?

@handlas: Go back and play something on the Kinect 1, these controls are a dream in comparison :) If all Kinect games were this weird & dumb I may be onboard.

@splodge: I get what your saying and agree that if it can squeeze even more cash and awareness out of people then thats fine but I and most people I know had already been made aware of the campaign from earlier celebrity participation (Bill Gates for example) so It made very little to no difference to us when people on social media would start doing it and nominating their friends. While it may still be a good way to keep the campaign in the public eye it feels hijacked by people who just want to get attention for themselves and want to take a break from selfies for a week or two while making no donations at all. Like I said every little helps but in regards to the OPs views on it being used more for showmanship than actual consideration for the cause at this stage I tend to agree. Either way I'm glad it's working out for the charity as that is one F***ked up condition that probably doesn't get as much attention as it should and a very good cause.

I dont know, when It was just celebrities and other famous people it seemed like a fun way to spread a message and raise money for charity as if 1 celeb has 1 million twitter followers then they may be able to raise a good chunk of change while bringing awareness to a whole new group. My problem arises when (like everything) Joe/Jane Nobody jumps on the bandwagon and starts issuing the challenge to all their Facebook friends in another desperate attempt at 5 mins of fame. The amount of people that i've seen go out and buy bags and bags of ice to do the challenge and then donate $5 is crazy. If a couple of bucks is all you can donte thats fine as every little helps but just give them the $15 and not buy the Ice.

I chose not to shoot Maurice. I had been picking up the audio logs throughout the game (to try and break up the monotony between missions) and found most of Maurice's. They shine a little light onto him as a character and attempt to explain why he did what he did in more detail as well as show the guilt he was left with afterwards. It was this i feel aimed me more to the choice at the end than anything else. I felt it drew some parallels to Aiden and with the voiceover from him after the logs had played I got a sense that the character began to see that too. It seemed odd that this relationship was explored more through the logs and not the main story other than a throwaway meeting at the start and an after-the-credits scene at the end. I wonder if I would have made the same choice if i had not found the logs or if I would have cared much at all.

I pre-order most games I want to pick up purely based on having it sitting in my mailbox or on my table waiting for me to play once I finish work as I am nowhere near a games store, so while I see the benefit of pre-orders but the DLC stuff is getting pretty dirty. If it's cosmetic I could care less but to hold off on full missions etc? If it was a timed FREE piece of DLC id be OK with it but I think we all know how these things play out :(

1) Rainbow Six : Siege ( Raven shield has been in my top 5 games off all time so here's hoping this is similar eventually)

2) Sunset Overdrive (this just looks like a lot of fun, hope it is)

3) Farcry 4 (......wing suits & elephants)

Honourable mentions: Batman : Arkham Knight & A new Crackdown.

I wish Xbox would (could) stick to their guns on the Xbox One at least for the first year. I personally love the 2.0 for navigating the interface and fantasia looks cool. I hold out hope that they are going to view this as a new challenge to prove the kinect is a worthwhile purchase (as they should anyway) instead of defeat.

Yep. Had to go into the server list and tried to join a CR game, it sent me to the premium download page then had to manually select, download and install on Xbox One. Also the install stopped twice. Did manage to get some rounds in afterwards tho, more than I've been able to do of late.
