Tomorrow! Anybody else excited?

There are some lovely reviews kicking around though the only thing that puzzles me is that there doesn't appear to be online co-op, which is a shame, especially given it is cross-buy.

Having just watched the Driveclub trailer, I think this may be my last PS3 purchase & even then it is Cross-buy.

There are far too many good RPGs for the Vita & enough stuff to keep me going in my back catalogue & PS+.

Only decision now is whether or not to sell the phat PS3 with Continuous Play policy or get rid of the slightly easier on power consumption slim over summer!

To be honest, I don't really know much about this game! There is a review here on Eurogamer who give it 8/10.

As for your PS3, whichever you decide to get rid of, make sure you keep the other when you get a PS4 so you can benefit from PS Plus on both consoles. :)

I think it looks amazing & I'm glad Ubisoft have found another use for their engine because try as I might, I just can't relate to Rayman!

I never trust reviews, I normally YouTube game play footage and try to make my own decision.

I think making an informed decision based on several sources/sources you trust to be best.

I have quite different tastes from many of my friends so can't always rely on their choices (otherwise I'd be playing Titanfall already!) however on certain areas, I'd trust them implicitly. In the former instance then reviews, footage & hands-on all play a valuable role.

And then there is the WAAAAANT factor.

Cued up for downloading when home, wish I'd enabled the Remote Link to download it.

I take it the PS4 does all of that for you?

Ah well. On my way home now.
Will start it downloading, check for any further GTA5 updates & then stick dinner on.
Should be done when food is!

So what is in that? I noticed a few skins with various effects plus gems (for crafting no doubt). Should have guessed £11.99 seemed a little cheap but I am under the impression that they are required - more like timesaver/cash cow options.

It's rather lovely btw. The Ubi-Art engine is a perfect fit.

Enjoying the combat system a lot, perfect for those with less of knee-jerk reactions!

I do have a feeling it will be over relatively quickly but am savoring what there is.

BTW I am loving it received box of special edition with poster and small artbook (which my 5 year old girl is enchanted by), what confused me was no disk, its a digital only download. But was not dissappointed with game, simple, elegant and intriguing. Loving it!
