    Just took Halo Wars 2 out of the box and 15.9 gig update!  I live semi-rural and have 50 gig per month.

    I don't have an xbox at all, but just saw you guys got Grow Up as a free game this month which is a nice quirky game if you are into the indy sort of stuff.

    Got Crash Bandicoot Trilogy on the weekend.

    Holy fuck. I forgot how hard that first game was. Was intending to play through them in order but cracked the shits at the first bridge level in #1 and skipped straight to #3. I honestly reckon its the hardest game Ive ever put into the PS4.

    I nerded out and watched some youtube reviews on Crash. Apparently to keep the 3 games the same they have used the jump mechanics from Crash 3 across the entire trilogy, this has made 1 & 2 more difficult and also less forgiving when it comes to falling off ledges etc. The rope trik still works on the bridge levels

    So bought a ps4 vr headset and RE. Have never felt so unsettled playing a video game. Looking forward to play fallout 4 and doom in VR when they come out.

    Yeah, apparently in the old school game, crash was more-or-less a running rectangle with a bandicoot animation inside it, so the edges of his box were a lot more forgiving when edging close to the lip of a cliff. By the 3rd game, he'd progressed to more of a pill shape and the edges where the box used to be don't count any more.

    Finally got into Mass Effect after ignoring it after the awful reviews, i'm a bit torn, it is the worst game in the Mass Effect series but if it wasn't connected to the brand i don't think it'd have gotten the amount of hate it did, it plays a lot like DA Inquisition and i'm enjoying my time with it well enough to see it through to the end.

    Yeah, I'm a massive fan but haven't played the latest purely due to reviews. I figured it couldn't be as shit as it was made out to be, but comparatively reviewers didn't rate it, and that doesn't necessarily make it bad, but just not as good as the others-which were great.

    timely conversation to have, supposedly EA are bringing a 10-hour free trial of Andromeda to all systems, but unfortunately it has the same problem as to what put me off the Overwatch free weekends, ie. you have to download the full 43-gig game to access it

    It shows their positivity towards whether you will like the game - if you like it and buy it you've already got it installed so you can instantly play it. If they made you download 43GB after a free trial most people wouldn't want to do that.

    Yeah, data is like gold for me living in the sticks just outside Perth. 50 gig is pretty much it unless I want to pay a couple of hundred a month. I am literally updating Halo Wars 2 (16 gig) over a 2 month billing cycle Laugh 3 Crying or Very sad
