Wow, didn't expect a thread like this here ... oh well.
I got myself Elite Dangerous finally last night and have been swanning around the galaxy making money (mostly doing delivery jobs). Great fun and it takes me back to the original Elite

I'm looking at red dead redemption 2 but really don't know if it's worth me buying. Has anyone played it?
@Jon is correct - I have it. Buy it - you won't be disappointed :) You may though find you spend an unhealthy amount of time on your sofa in your pants shouting at the TV though. Or perhaps that's just me...

This game is everywhere, even my non-gamer friends seem to be doing nothing but talking about this game - usually to complain that it's being too distracting and keeping their other half from them by the sounds of it!

Is there much money in retro PC gaming on ebay?

I always figure the games can just be downloaded and run through dosbox or something

There is money to be made. Not huge profits but it brings in a bit for me each month. I buy games in joblots at 50 for five pounds. Usually then make a pound or two profit on each game so it soon adds up!

I know.

The Instagram FalloutUniverse account has slated it royaly. Like it was an incomplete game. The idea of no NPC is a great money saver but your storyboarding team has to be on the top of their game for it to work.

I've read that you can often not meet people for hours/days (24 people per server) which I think fits in well with a period of time just after a nuke drops.

Think i'll stick to the memories I have of playing the extremely glitchy fallout 3 many years ago!1

Its the future!
I agree with you on this and i wish that COD was crossplatform as it always annoys me that I have friends who play on xbox and I can't play against them.

I remember buying Portal 2 on PS3 and that had cross play with PC players and I thought oooooh is this the beginning of crossplay happening but Sony just seem to be implementing it as the speed of a sloth.

Cross Platform gaming will be the beginning of the end for console gaming as we know it.

I will be sad for Sony to die off, but I am looking forward to the PSV!

As long as consoles still have their exclusives I think they will be fine.

Just look how good Spiderman and God of War have sold on PS4!
