    Mirror's Edge Catalyst just announced, and will be hitting PC, PS4, and XB1 sometime in 2016, developed by DICE, just like the original. This is planned, or said to be, a reboot of the series, rather than being Mirror's Edge 2 which was announced at E3 a while back. Press release...

    Dark Souls 3 Leaked Info (Rumour)

    The Know, a Gaming channel affiliated with RoosterTeeth, have unveiled new information about the potential surprise announcement of Dark Souls 3 at E3 this year. Their credibility is questionable after some Silent Hills 'leaks' which turned out to be very false (like the demo being Xbox One...

    Fallout 4: "Please Stand by"

    http://fallout4.com/ And a countdown! So, I've been studying this information for quite a while now, suffering so that you don't have to, and I believe this to be Fallout 4. My first clue was the website being called fallout4.com which, if you look at it, looks a bit like Fallout 4 except...

    Jared Leto as Joker

    So, that's Leto as the new Joker! The image was released yesterday I think and is the first look at him, and we'll be seeing him in the Suicide Squad movie. Thoughts? He looks like something out of a nightmare, pretty deranged and scary. Can't wait to see him in action but, on pure aesthetic...

    Religious People's Views of Other Religions

    This was a question I've had in my head for a little while and thought I'd just get people's views on it, either as an external observer of the situation or someone who is actually religious and can give how they personally feel. I was just curious as to how a religious person views other...

    Early Start/Early Finish, or Late Start/Late Finish?

    Inspired from school discussion in shoutbox, but I guess it applies to work too. So in regards to school, work, or whatever, would you rather have an early morning start and then finish earlier in the afternoon, or a later start in the morning, for more of a lie-in, but finish later in the day too?

    Porn Stars Before & After Make-up

    Chris Pratt to be Indiana Jones?

    Deadline, via NeoGAF Thoughts on this potential casting? Very early rumour but can still discuss it! Personally, I'd say hell yeah! Do love Chris Pratt but fangirl aside I think he could do a really good job as Indy, I think it'd fit quite well. A lot of people on GAF were saying Bradley...

    Do you name your stuff?

    Stuff! Inanimate objects you own. For example I am currently writing this using Don, my PC. He was so named because he's an absolute Don! And the sofa in the living room is Steph. Anyone else give names to their stuff? :) Or am I spending the night alone in crazy corner?

    Does Size Matter?

    lol sex joke Moving on, the question at hand is a simple one; does the size of a videogame matter to you? Size referring to just the scale of the explorable game world. For me, I do like big games, and it does actually matter to me. It's not a 100% way to make a good game, and it's arguably...
