    After Doom, I'm less concerned by this than before. But when added to it's out of nowhere announcement with a comparitively near release date and (iirc) brand new dev studio doing a huge ambitious project, it raises a few alarm bells for sure.

    Are these game any good. Series has completely passed me by. Saw a video and it looked very very much like GTA?

    @Gregolution

    Fist two were excellent. Far more focused in the narrative than GTA. Read a preview of new game and again story based. No mp at all which is welcome in my book.

    Watch EG do their grand tradition and give this a 4/10 (Avoid).

    I'm hoping this game turns out to be great!

    Huh? This has been hyped for months, man.

    And who the fuck needs pre-release reviews when there's hours and hours of gameplay vids from (admittedly paid for trips down to actual New Orleans) peeps playing it and raving about it?

    EDIT: Although...I DID take a chance on Homefront, and still feel like a fucking chump.

    Anyone getting this on Friday, I so want to but know that if I wait for a few weeks it will be 10-15 cheaper. It is not even as though I would start it on Friday.
    I need to repeat to myself "I do not need all new games on release day" ;)

    Im hoping this is going to be shit, its getting expensive over the next few months as it is :D

    I never liked the driving or the gunplay on the second but the playthroughs on this i have seen have looked alright.

    I'm in - got my preorder with Shopto so will hopefully have it Thursday.

    I think it's looks excellent. I really enjoyed the previous Mafia games and the new period/setting for this one looks amazing.

    Gears 4 next week, PlayStation VR the week after.......my wallet is fucked.

    Watched an Angry Joe play through over the weekend, well dipped in and out via YT. Did look rather great though, He and other Joe were very impressed, caveat being they got sent the code by the makers of course.
    I was certainly happy enough with what I saw though.

    Review copies not unlocking until release day, so don't expect any scores this week.

    Yeah I saw the AJ video - right off the bat he says it's "a mix between GTA 5 and The Last of Us, but with a better story".

    He also said the open world is slightly smaller than GTA 5's but it's more detailed.....couldn't watch much more of the video because I'm trying to avoid as much gameplay as possible.

    Very much looking forward to it....

    @DUFFMAN5

    Xbox One mate - I figured with PSVR out next week I'll need all the space on my PS4 I can get!

    Between this, Forza 3 and Gears 4 my Xbox is getting a lot of action at the moment....

    It looks really good, but I'm waiting for impressions before I put my money down. I don't want to pre-order the PC version only for it to perform like shit.

    Doesn't mean much, granted, but previews (video and written) have been nearly universally positive. Or at least, not negative. I haven't come across one that expresses real worries over the title.
  • Deleted user 5 October 2016 13:30:41
    I'm patiently waiting for my steam copy to unlock :)

    I have nothing to lose by waiting. Nothing that matters, anyway.

    Caught a glimpse of it on twitch earlier (well it appeared as a broadcast in the ps app) I imagine they are getting torn down.
