    @the_greg said:10 years ago, new games were £30 at play.com. Now they're £50. I can corroborate this to some extent. I recall looking at online UK games retailers offering pre-orders and new releases...

    The #1 game is actually where Jason completed the smoking arc and successfully quit. In context of the wider world, 2018's video games don't come close. Congratulations, duder.

    Decided this is a really good list by my ratio of 'I've played this and like it a lot' to 'Oh this game! I really want to play it!' to 'eh, not really fussed about this.'

    Good pictures of Gerstmann and Bakalar on the home page.

    Faithful HD remake of RRT4 please, Namco. Preferred it to Gran Turismo 2. It was the racing game on consoles in the late 90s.

  • Newfangled posted a message in the forum topic Looking back, which system has been the most disappointing to you?. on the General Discussion board

    360 for me. I think I got less than two years out of that console before it broke on me, despite the care I used to handle my gaming systems with. Wouldn't touch the One with a bargepole.

    Waypoint seemed like such a career side-step for Austin, in the same way Kotaku (and subsequently Waypoint) did for Klepek. Both brilliant presences on GB, who could have diversified the site's output...

    New layout looks fantastic, but why on earth would you change the mascot design? The logo was brilliant, but the new bomb is--as others have said--extremely generic and characterless.

    @brad Apologies if I missed it: is there a 'hardcore' mode a la RDR1? It looks a little too easy to eschew strategy in favour of a run 'n' gun approach to combat.
