    Until Dawn downloading for me right now. I've always wanted to play it and now that it's $20 on the PSN seems like the perfect time to jump in!

    Saw a couple vids on YouTube and the game looks creepy as fuck lol

    Also I've finished the main story on Horizon: Zero Dawn. I really recommend this game if you like open world, resources gathering and crafting etc. Much like Rise of the Tomb Raider if anyone has played that  

    Great game.

    How long did HZD take you?

    I've played a few hours and only just got sent out into the world, so hoping it is pretty lengthy?

    I was pretty pumped but have seen some not so great reviews recently, think I'll hold off for a while and get Nier Automata instead

    Im not too sure I didn't keep track of the hours but it was a lengthy game. I suggest playing it on a harder difficulty (you can switch throughout the game), and don't just smash out the story, do plenty of side quests and errands and level Aloy up and gather heaps of resources. 
    Also craft your increased ammo and resource capacity early on.  


    There's something else but I'm worried to tell you because I don't know how you would react without finding it on your own? Or if you already know about it?

    I've been playing Ghost Recon and absolutely loving it when I play with mates, however when I'm playing by myself it's not much fun. I think it's the bants about who to target and what strat to take and when hanging shit on someone when 4 of you are lining up 4 guys and one of them misses and the mission turns to a shit fight

    Haven't heard the greatest reviews so far. And I'm generally not into the whole sci-fi thing anyway

    I'd imagine people have some killer gaming related GIF's.

    Where's my tech lads at on here? I have a question regarding routers? The one that I got given when I signed up for my internet contract upon moving back from China is simply not cutting the mustard so I'm looking for a new one.

    Chasing some recommendations. I don't mind spending the dollars but want something that is gonna work well. Have about 8 devices connected in the house (2x phones, 2x smart tvs, xbox, 2 x tablets, lappy etc).

    Am looking at a couple of diff D-Links, TP-Links and ASUS and the Netgear Nighthawk X6. Anyone got any ideas?

    I haven't been keeping up to date with all the new router technology so I'm not too sure. I would recommend going in to JB Hi-Fi and just ask the guys that work in the tech area (they generally know their stuff). And just let them know how many devices you will be connecting and the range you're looking for and they'll start throwing them at you

    I cant help you directly, but you can watch Youtube reviews. Look up something like "Best Wireless Routers 2016" or something. Should be some heavy duty ones in there, something it sounds like you will be after.
