You need to get married, that’ll stop you. 

Considering it mostly comprises of looking at data screens, FM does have an amazing ability to suck you in.  In my current game it's October 2063. VAR was never implemented. I started this game o

Played Titanfall last night, have to say that game is absolute chaos. Some of the maps are just insane. Impressive stuff.

Also if you're a fan of South Park then play The Stick of Truth, been playing it all week. Some real laugh out loud moments.

I've been playing that. I love the way it looks and sounds exactly like the TV show but I'm not 100% sold on the gameplay.

The entire thing is just wandering around a South Park diorama, looking at in-jokes, fetching items for various characters, and loads of tedious fights that are all exactly the same.

Did you get past the Al Gore fight? I almost gave up on the game at that point - I got beaten so many times, it was no fun at all. Listening to him do his stupid speech over and over, then trying a new weapon or buddy character, only to die and have to repeat it... On about the 10th attempt I turned down the difficulty and finally squeaked past it.

Well usually I'm not normally into turn based combat but as it's South Park I thought an exception should be made, you have a point with what you say though. It felt strange when I first started playing as it looks just the programme.

Yes it took me ages and plenty of health potions, that speech was very tedious.

On a side note I finished the new Tomb Raider a couple of weeks ago, cracking game that.

Lego games must be so easy to make. Maybe the first Star Wars one took a bit of thought, but since then all they have to do is license a movie or comic book and reskin the previous game. And when they've made a bunch of virtually identical games based on the same thing, they can repackage them together and call it a trilogy.

That got me a few times untiI figured out that I wasn't using fart magic, After that it was quite easy.

I really like the game and the gameplay doesn't bother me but then again I've always been a sucker for repetitive RPG's.

South Park was really good after I got rid of Al Gore. I didn't die again in any fights, so I could just enjoy the story.

I heard they censored the abortion scene in the console version. Not sure why that wasn't allowed but some of the other stuff was - the bedroom scene, the stuff inside Mr Slave's arse, Jesus shooting children with a machine gun...

If you don't mind a game that is primarily story driven with pretty limited gameplay (think The Walking Dead), may I recommend To The Moon.

It came out a few years ago, but I only just came across it on gog.com.

It is quite honestly the best story I've witnessed come out of a computer game. Moving, emotional, suprising, twisting.
It really surprised me

Games forums are full of people saying they cried over that one. I didn't, but it takes more than a badly written romance to get me going.

When my wife made me watch My Girl this Christmas I laughed at the bit where Macauley Culkin got stung to death by bees. I looked over to confirm just how amusing it was - the way his glasses fell to the floor - and she was actually weeping!

I thought the dialogue in To The Moon read like it was written by a child but the story concept was pretty good. Sort of Vanilla Sky meets Eternal Sunshine.

The two doctors were a bit odd. But perhaps teaching EFL has made me impervious to awkwardly phrased Asian-English dialogue. I found the romance far fetched but really charming.

I quite like dodgy Asian translations - I have a Chinese dvd of Shaolin Soccer which has the best subtitles ever, much better than the cleaned-up Western release. But the guy who wrote To The Moon is Canadian, isn't he?

I have no idea why the male doctor is characterised as a petulant teenager and the female one is like his mum.

Still, if you enjoyed that, try Gone Home. It's a bit pretentious but very well done, a rather different way of delivering narrative in a game.

Also, Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons - that one I did find quite moving, even though it's an action game with no dialogue.

Got back into Diablo 3 in a big way since the reaper of souls expansion on PC.

Downloading the starter edition overnight. Finally feel its time to try this game as it has apparently improved a lot recently.
