The holiday season is upon us which for many is time for some serious gaming!
Are you having any gaming sessions over the next week with your fellow GD members? Booting up a nice party game of Battlefield 4? Be sure to get involved in the comments section below!
Jon - I’m away visiting family for most of the holiday week so I’ll be taking my gaming on the move, packing my 3DS and PS Vita for some portable goodness.
A lack of options on the Vita means I’ll be catching up on the big indies I feel like I’ve missed out on over the last couple of years, downloading Lone Survivor and finally getting around to seeing what the fuss is all about with Terraria.
On the 3DS I’ve got a game of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, a hardcore turn-based strategy RPG that I’ve been attempting to plough through for the last few months despite its relentless difficulty. In between mouthfuls of chocolate and trying to hide my sprouts this will be my go-to game.
Katie - Around trying to work out how on earth to roast a turkey well on Christmas Day, I’ll be pretty busy over the Christmas break, so I’ll probably kick back with some old favourites that I don’t have to think about too much. I recently got hold of the HD re-release of Final Fantasy VIII. That game was the first ever console game I owned when, back in Christmas 1999, my parents finally caved in and bought me a PlayStation, so it holds some great festive memories for me.
scottyjay - I've been playing Need for Speed: Underground 2 the most in recent times and that’s going to be occupying my time over the holidays. Not entirely sure what's got into me lately, but I've become obsessed with playing through all of my oldest games, reliving the memories.
HEAVENISHELL - This weekend I will mostly be playing Need For Speed: Rivals. I love racing games and I hav been waiting for a proper sequel to Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2010 and this is it. Back to playing a cop or a racer after Need For Speed: Most Wanted’s disappointing focus on racers only. The game has quite good graphics, though it’s unfortunately been capped at 30 fps which results in sluggish-looking performance. I can’t wait to get back to Need For Speed: Rivals’ exotic cars and high speed police chases.
Felix - During this wonderful festive time I am going to be trying to get some gaming in with other GD’ers, if I can. I have been gifted my Christmas present of Payday 2 by my awesome buddy Pip and I know a fair few of you out there also have this title. So lets get our heist on in this coop title.
Other than that I will be trying to raise my skills in Battlefield 4, while sipping Port and eating Stilton. I imagine I will be spending most of the time trying to rally support for my election as BF commander. Locked up safely in the command bunker, giving orders and guffawing with the other officers. Thats how wars were won back in my day. Again i will be looking for GD’ers to help win the Battlefield with and to try and keep me alive for as long as possible ;)
Over to the rest of you GDers! What will you be playing during some hard-earned time off? See you in battle!
