I have been so busy that another year has almost passed. Things might change now though because I have a decent sized tablet to do updates from. After over 2 years of daily use my Nexus 7 is going in to retirement, bring on the Nexus 9. I have read some bad reviews to do with build quality and light bleed, but mine seems fine. Its going to take some time to get used to but I really like the wider screen and the front facing speakers.
I have also increased my hours at work, 4 days a week makes the week surprising crowded as i do other things on my days off, i don’t have time to do the usual posts or playing games. I am now finally able to use my holidays so for the next few weeks i get 4 days off in a row, let the games begin!
GTA V on the Xbox One looks incredible and Elite: Dangerous is nearly out of beta. I also got the huge Halo Collection. I felt a bit disappointed with the Xbox One but it’s starting to get some decent games, a huge Mass Effect re-release is on the cards, probably a year away. A new Red Dead game would be amazing.
Interesting film about a bike messenger who has a dangerous package to deliver. Impressive Direction has a Phone Booth style and pace.
Set in the 80’s when First Blood was in the Cinema. Following a bunch of school children who try to make a sequel of sorts. Excellent cast and great music.
GTA V seems to be holding off on the large expansions we expect from Rockstar, probably because they are busy porting it to PC and maybe even Xbox One/PS4?
The other reason is in game money! It’s fun and easy to earn cash but some people want it quick and pay real money for GTA $. This sort of DLC however small is actually profitable as £40 gets you $1.5 Million, which sounds like a lot but the recent Valentines DLC had a car which cost $750,000 so £20 for a 1 vehicle.
The only reason this isn’t the worst thing in the gaming world since the Season Pass is because for about 5-10 hours of good gameplay you can afford it with money you make in the game.
I love these content updates because more vehicles, especially planes are what keep the same old missions fun and give you something to spend your money on.
Tuesday 4th will bring out new sports cars, The Albany Alpha, Dunka Jester and Grotti Turismo R. A new plane (Above) called the Vestra, looks like a 2 seater but i bet it’s nippy. 2 new weapons with the Heavy Pistol (probably a Desert Eagle) and Special Carbine. Also some more Suits and glasses to make you look all pro and ting.
This weekend also marks the last chance to buy that really expensive car and all the other Valentines DLC, until next year probably.
