  1. I might have missed it somewhere, but what time of day do fixtures roll over? Midnight GMT?
  2. I’m not sure if this overly complicates matters, but maybe instead of giving an advantage to some newbies vs others, you could have two bronze leagues run in parallel for a season. League winner in each league promotes to silver, 2/3 stay in bronze (along with the two demotions), 4/5/6 form Manganese moving forward. I’m not complaining tho, since I stand to benefit if things stay as they are.
  3. I’m excited to be back. After digging through the old standings, it turns out I’ve been gone since the halcyon days of season 5.

  5. Hey, been a long time since I was involved in this league, but I would love to re-join next season if there’s a spot. Edit: Holy cow, just checked my comment history and it’s been 5 years since I last played. Time flies.
  6. Taking a short break from Wipeout HD. Might start XCOM: Enemy Within tonight.
  7. LA Noire. Haven't gotten around to playing it yet.
  8. Have you tried it recently? My game was hanging too, but there was an update a few days ago that appears to have fixed it. I wasn't able to find a match, but I didn't encounter the freeze. Add me on psn (same username) if you want to boost cup wins.
  9. Binary Domain SIngle player is fine, but there's 100+ hours of online boosting, and a team based horde mode that takes 2 hours per attempt. You need to beat all 3 horde mode maps to get the plat.
  10. 109 Down from 405 since the last time I posted in this thread. Should dip under 100 some time in the next few weeks.
  11. 11 Binary Domain (0.62%) FIFA Street (1.23%) Grand Theft Auto IV (1.35%) Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational (1.99%) Crysis 2 (2.12%) Grid Autosport (2.72%) LittleBigPlanet Karting (3.00%) SSX (3.12%) Need For Speed: The Run (3.89%) Killzone: Mercenary (4.11%) Grid 2 (4.96%)
  12. I won? Thanks Parker! Rockin' out to Cream in celebration.
  13. There's a few questions about Motorstorm: Apocalypse, so I'll try to answer all them. I can't be bothered to multi-quote them all so hopefully those asking see this. The servers did go down at one point, but have been back up for some time and are reasonably active. I platted the game last month and had no issues finding a game, except late at night Pacific time (GMT -8). Can I self-boost in split-screen? Mostly. You can earn XP self-boosting, as well as most of the online trophies. There are a few that require you to do them legit or with a partner. Off the top of my head, the two are: Where's My Money? - Win an online bet in matchmaking Where Do You Put Them All? - Earn 50 Accolades in Multiplayer Where do you put them all? is quickest if you have a partner and can be completed in a private match. With 2 people you can knock out these out in no more than 20-30 mins combined if you fiddle with the race settings. After that it's 5 or so hours of self-boosting. Very manageable. Races have to be manually started every 2 mins or so. Had fun doing the dishes 60 seconds at a time.
  14. If you're looking for sim-lite racers, I enjoyed the licensed games Milestone puts out. MotoGP13 and WRC3 were quite a bit of fun. The trophy lists for both are relatively easy, but there's quite a bit of extra depth if you want to turn up the difficulty. MotoGP also sports a decent career mode where you start in GP3 and work your way up. The GRID games are also solid contenders in this category, with GRID 2 being the worst/most arcady of the three. Beware if you're a completionist - GRID: Autosport is a loooong haul. But if you're looking for a sim-ish circuit racer with a lot of replayability it may be worth considering. There's plenty of info on GT 5 and 6 out there, so I won't make my reply any longer. Though it certainly has its issues, I thoroughly enjoyed 5 and look forward to starting 6. On the arcade side, I'll echo those suggesting Split/Second. Great game. You may also want to give Pure and Motorstorm Apocalypse a look.
  15. I won't say you absolutely shouldn't buy I Am Alive, but I would strongly recommend against it. Just do yourself a favour and leave it alone. It was a good concept, but very poorly realized. Only get it if you're a really big fan of post-apocalyptic settings or love climbing drain pipes. Now that's out of the way, telltale games are fun. I can only speak for The Walking Dead season 1, but it was more or less a point-and-click adventure game with puzzle elements, some quicktime events and very occasional shooting. The gameplay is basic, but you're really playing for story and dialogue. You're never really watching cutscenes long enough to become a passenger though, because you're usually active in the conversation. Some of the choices or actions you take will persist with you through the remainder of the season. Telltale's engine is somewhat janky though, and can chug sometimes on PS3. If you can, play their games on PC or PS4. That said, I don't have a PS4 and couldn't say no to TWD S2 and Wolf Among Us in last week's sale. My other recommendation under $6 is Hotline Miami ($3). It's a hyper violent top-down shooter with a great soundtrack and VERY addictive gameplay. Well worth it at full price. I'm also looking at From Dust. I haven't played it, but it looks interesting.
