Bought NHL 15 a few days ago, solid game so far, sure would be interesting to put it side by side with the NHL 95 version that I played extensively on PS2.

Are all games bought and downloaded these days or can you still buy the CD and use it that way?

You can buy the discs but I download.
Faffing about with discs was a nuisance and unlike CD and music the quality is exactly the same.

Yeah in this day n age, it does seem silly to buy a disk when u can download them and not need any bulky storage space. I don't play computer games and havent had a games console for a very long time

Definitely.

But thinking it should be cheaper aside, I just reckoned not having to get up and change discs would be preferrable.

Music is different. I still buy CDs, quality issues.

Driveclub out next week.

PS Plus has a free not-full-version to download, looking forward to checking that out.

The free version will very probably be enough for me.

Didn't they originally say that the full version would be "free" to Plus members?

They did sort of.

Anyway it has been delayed. Cynical readers may think because they want to gather more impulse buys on the now-available version that you pay for.

Friend bought the game (was always going to).
Looks fantastic, and plays fun, but AI seems very predictable. perhaps multiplayer is better

Are there any games where the ai drivers are anything but predictable?
I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore.

Out of interest, does anyone actually play console-type technical, graphics-heavy games on their smartphone or tablet, or is it just the casual ones?

Despite smartphones and tablets having the screens and processing power, I get the impression people who like console games would rather play them on a PSP etc than on a phone or tablet.

There's obviously some fundamental issues with that title, late freebie aside.
Surely can't be just understamative server load.

Absolute disaster for those guys. Got to feel for them. Well, the ones who didn't screw things up.

Yes, lots of talented people for sure. They must be devastated.
