Script Watching Twin Peaks for the first time. Just yooou... aaaand IIII...Perro So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!The Travisionist I'm just waiting for "Mad Max: U Mad, Bro?"gajknight Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P Bardley We are Diamond Dogs.IDrawOnTape I get to work to stock and STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STREET DATE SEPT 4 OMG STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STREET DATE SEPT 4 STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS STAR WARS TOYS WHY ISN'T IT SEPT 4?Cosmonstropolis Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night. ChillyBilly Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious.
My wife´s dog died yesterday . Rest in peace Diamond Dog .
Here's to you, Malu
Rest forever here in our hearts
The last and final moment is yours
That agony is your triumphSeymourDuncan17 Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2. TheDefenestrator I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.Shinta [img]http://i.imgur.com/oZ7CQJa.jpg[/img]nanashi Fallout Shelter: Impossible to Learn, Easy to Master.Mike Wallace Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.ooktar Downloading Phantom Pain. ETA, 16 hours. Just in time for lunch tomorrow.Mr Knives OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.Rad Party God Oh, joyful night.

In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.
