Will contribute by continuing from where I left off on ONM: Really rather enjoying The Evil Within. None of the things it's been criticised for have bothered me in the slightest so far, just what I've wanted for so long basically, some new bits of Resi 4.

I'm pretty much looking forward to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. I haven't played Halo 2-4 yet, I've only played Halo Anniversary (still haven't completed it yet) and own Halo 4 (haven't played it yet). £40 for 4 games (Halo 2 is remastered/remade) + all DLC + Halo 5 beta + Halo: Nightfall (Digital Series) seems pretty good to me. Shame I don't have an Xbox One yet, I have numerous things to save up for, but that's at least third on my list (I think) D:

Halo 2 anniversary stuff

Shame it's pre-rendered rather than in-game but it's still pretty as hell

Three games I don't actually own so I can't complain.

I'm just really exited to get my hands on the XBONE. I've played around about half a hours worth of games at a event and it's safe to say I love it. Pretty hyped for Titanfall and Garden Warfare.

I'm also exited because I'll be doing a lot more online gaming. On Pc I never really play online stuff because I just play my bazillion Indie games alone in my house. It will be great to start playing games like Minecraft, Space Engineers and TitanFall with friends. :D

Only just joined the Xbox one party thanks to black friday, so dont have much as of yet, just playing around and getting used to it, only thing I really really dont like so far though is the d-pad on the controller I think its awful compared to the one on my 360 pad and my ps4 pad.

Buying codes in bulk I guess.

I have brought codes from them before for a years worth of ps+ or xbox gold when they've been on sale and they have been really brilliant prices. I think I spent 23quid for 13 months of gold last time.

so 343 are adding ODST to the master chief collection in HD and all that jazz, free of charge for anyone who bought the game between launch and possibly (don't quote me on this) the end of december. you also get a free month of live and an in-game avatar and faceplate, to say sorry for the matchmaking issues the game suffered with at launch.

a nice little bonus and it's appreciated; it didn't have to be done and it's good to see they're actively listening to the community as they added ODST at the community's request.

I think it was between launch and whenever they announced it IIRC... I'll still buy it anyway because ODST is excellent. Hopefully they add Firefight in with it too, but I doubt they will.

Still, got an Xbox One for Christmas and the MC collection and it's absolutely amazing. Very nicely done to say the least, even if matchmaking is a little wonky!

Someone told me you had to have played it while online between launch and today (28th) in order to get ODST for free but there would be no firefight.

I wonder how much the download will be for people who want it but don't qualify.

I had a look and it was up until the 19th or something, sadly. I reckon it'll be about 10-15 quid judging from other XBLA releases...

Also, the Halo 5 beta's pretty neat.

Last chance to download The Witcher 2 for free on 360 before its replaced by Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons this Sunday. And then that gets replaced by Sniper Elite V2 on 16th Feb. All games I whole heartily recommend.

And on the Xbone front #IDARB is free throughout the month of Feb. Not entirely sure if it's replacing D4 or just joining it, but I'd download it anyway.

Hmm, not bad.

Playing Deadpool and wish it was just like the first bit messing around with no real aim, it was so funny and genuine fun,

Combat probably will be a drag, but I'm only on the first level, so time will tell if I enjoy it.
