    Sim games?

    Cities skylines is a simulator (an amazing one) that is just a better version of SimCity. It's currently PC only but it's coming out on Xbox pretty soon. If you were considering going for SimCity I'd just wait for Cities Skylines to come out on Xbox

    Best/Worst learning curves in games?

    I'm looking to pick up some new games with my long unspent birthday money, and I was wondering which games you thought had the best, and the worst, learning curves?

    One Game You're Most Addicted To?

    I've been playing an awful lot of Cities Skylines recently. The total control you have allows you to formulate long term plans, which inevitably keep you hooked on the game for a while.

    AMD or NVIDIA?

    I've been looking to upgrade my AMD Radeon 6000HD series, and I'm literally the only one of my friends using an AMD graphics card now. What are you guys using, and what do you think I should go for next? Other than a partnership between AMD and Intel, there's little more non-numerical proof I...

    Fun games that are laptop-friendly (Integrated graphics)

    If you can keep your desktop on, steam has a streaming service that allows you to run games on the desktop but play them over LAN, which is automatic if you're playing at home and can be configured if you're out and about. It seems a shame to leave your desktop sitting around. I used to play...

    Why are Wiis going so cheap now?

    I've been seeing Wiis selling at £30 now, while PS3s are easily going for much more. Many of the games for the Wii are effectively timeless and I sort of feel it's a sad demise for one of the greatest modern consoles to be dumped on a clearance shelf. Why isn't the Wii holding it's value against...

    Favorite Pokemon Game?

    I would say Pearl because it was my first, however I remember being infuriated with the text scroll speed, which means that my favourite would have to be Platinum. The whole underground system was amazing, I was immensely disappointed when I saw they had dropped it. People have said I missed out...

    PS3 at the end of its life?

    Damn that's cheap, I've been looking more around the £75 mark. I suppose I should spend some more time searching around. I'm not entirely bothered about new releases, although keeping up with social pressures is a must. Thanks for your advice.

    PS3 at the end of its life?

    I've been considering buying a PS3 so I can play some of the games my friends are playing (namely FIFA 16) although I fear the PS3 is near the end of its product life. It's becoming relatively old and I see Sony soon moving their focus entirely to the PS4. Is this an irrational fear given the...

    Good games for older Apple devices?

    A lot of games on the app store aren't compatible with earlier devices (such as the Iphone 3). Any games I find that are compatible tend to run terribly, however I do remember some games working well on my Ipod 1st gen, and my iphone 3. Do you know of any games that would work well on earlier...

    Dual monitors?

    I've hooked up an old tv as a second monitor and never looked back, while many games don't really support it, the fact that I can watch a livestream while playing make it invaluable.

    What games do you currently have on your phone?

    The new Pokemon game looks good, but will be chock-full of micro-transactions. Currently I'm playing 2048 (although I'm terrible at it), and Hatfall. Both can be a little repetitive but will do to fill small periods of time.

    do you pay for games

    I tend to buy non-free games if they fulfil two of these three conditions: 1. No in-app purchases. 2. Developed by someone reputable (There are exceptions to this, of course) 3. Recommended by Friend/Itunes Otherwise it's most likely a money grabber.

    Do you think the next Nintendo system will keep the "Wii" name?

    The name 'Wii' has been tainted by the Wii U - I'm not saying it was a failure (It wasn't) but the constant battering it's got from the media has definitely made the name less valuable and attractive than it was in 2006. Nintendo are most likely going to have to reinvent themselves console wise...

    What lesser known Steam games do you like?

    Sid Meirs Railroads is a very old but extremely enjoyable game, and definitely strategic (if not real time). It's dirt cheap because of it's age, and often pops up on sale. I've spent days playing through it, and even when I'd completed the many standard maps there were plenty more online to...
