Dropouts notwithstanding, the recent Red Dead meet was awesome.

As mentioned by... (sorry forgotten who!) on Halo's recent post, online gaming
is moving more & more towards just released titles & if you're not in from
Day 1, you've started at a disadvantage - compounded by publishers turning
off servers to games no longer selling by whatever amount so no longer
viable although you've X amount for the game & online pass in the first place.

Anyhoo, point I was intending to come around to is what games do you
currently own that are awesome to play online (I prefer co-op but am
easy really) and you'd really like to play before the servers go off?

Battlefield 3 is still my main poison, but Ive been playing a lot of Xbox recently (Halo 4, Sniper Elite, Alan Wake etc). Ive just done Resistance on the Vita which I have to say was quite a good game (if you're a fan of the series). On the PS3, my next game to knock out is Assassins Creed 3. Ive started it but got distracted

Non now lol, Far Cry 3 is currently my main game but BF3 has a great coop too. Red Dead Redemption has a good coop too. My list of unstated games is huge, one day I will just play and after a month be finished or dead :D

Re: "Senior"Titles

I'm into GT5 at the moment a well as Most Wanted. My FPS games are collecting dust for some reason. After getting BF3 Premium a few months ago I've managed to play 2 hours online. I still have Brink and Bulletstorm which have excellent co-op, so if anyone fancies a game...
Red Dead was awesome last time around, so I'll put up another Pick'n'Mix tuesday event for it if you like.

That'd be good, cheers Spruijt!

I picked up Brink cheap in the last round of GAME administration & Bulletstorm free from PSN+ - haven't really dabbled with either yet. Quite enjoy BF3 but only have the vanilla version, with possibly the Karkland add-on? Need to check...

re: Far Cry 3, that's the only other title that's tempted me from the current batch of recent/to be soon releases that's tempting me though I never did finish Far Cry 2. It had an editor did it not? Unreal Tournament 3 was a real blast for this reason...

I got Brink (on the 360) and was a bit disappointed. Its best enjoyed online, and the community had moved on long ago (I got it late in the day cheap). Trying to play with the AI is frustating as they are so idiotic. You literally have to become a one man army to get anywhere.

Now Bulletstorm is a different kettle of fish. Got this for the 360 again, and I really enjoyed it. Dont play in front of the kids!!! Very tongue in cheek game, with lots of swearing. Its not a FPS. I'd say its got more in common with a twin stick shoot 'em up, as its all about the score and killing in a ridiculous manner (Fire In The Hole was one that always made me laugh).

Ive heard nothing but good things about Far Cry 3. I havent the money to get it yet, but its on my list. :lol:

Re: "Senior"Titles

If you can find a cheap copy of BS on the PS3 Slaine we could get a 4 player co-op going ;)

I still play GT5 on PS3, Forza 4 and Horizon on 360 even though my Gold has run out.

Excellent, sounds like a BulletStorm session is in order!

Any particular online titles, non-FPS or racing, people have a hankering for?

I had problems getting into rooms after a patch on far cry about a month ago. Not sure if its fixed yet. I did enjoy it on the PS3 multiplayer and fancy trying it out again. At the moment i'm trying to get used to my new mouse, and all of its progamable buttons for crouching, reloading etc on the PC using f c 3 which I downloaded for nothing.
I think i've got brink floating about somewhere , wouldn't mind a 3 or 4 player co op as when I play with El sprut on a 2 player co op we never manage to do the level as he is shite at it. ;)
I but dont have bulletstorm anymore.
I'll probably only be playing GT5 on Saturdays , as I'm a bit off Battlefield at the moment due to it lagging so badly. Crisis 3 (PC) will be taking up all of my gaming time in the near future, Hunter mode is amazingly good fun.

I'd be up for some more FC3 co-op, enjoyed playing it with Ace etc. Still not tried the High Tides DLC yet.

Re: "Senior"Titles

Any night in particular for Brink and/or Bulletstorm or shall I create a Pick'n'Mix Tuesday event for it?

I'll be available this Sunday, if I manage to avoid the pub (which I haven't yet this week).

If not, Pick&Mix it chief!

I could do an hour on Brink, early sunday evening as I'm off to bed early. All my saved data has gone so I'll not have anything unlocked if there are things to unlock?

Re: "Senior"Titles

If you lost the save and it's not stored on the game server (which I think is the case), you basically have to start from scratch as all abilities are unlocked when you level up.

I can't make it on sunday unfortunately.

Shame you can't make it on Sunday, will try to be around later in week.

@Acegadgets - don't worry, I'm playing from scratch anyway!
Poke me somehow & I'll get online.
Free house all day although will make dinner for missus getting home at 6.30pm so any time suits.

We have recently purchased Far Cry 3 so I would like to try that online. We also have bf3 and 2 (I actually prefer 2), killzone 2 and 3 and nfs most wanted. I also have bulletstorm but have never played so if anybody is playing I would love to join in :)

Think I'll probably pick up far cry in a fortnight.
Tempted to this weekend but would be best waiting until after 1st, see what state my bank account is in!
If all else fails this evening, i'd suggest an impromptu BulletStorm!
