    anyone ever used this?

    i signed up for free trial yesterday

    on 3.99 a month where you get 1 game a month and it has to be 6 months old. fine for me as i rarerly buy games immeditley unless they sports games.

    life is strange is on its way to me, ill let you know if its a good service. you get 3 games in 21 days for free trial

    I used to use love film for games, have two out at a time (before the TV was fully monopololised by children's TV). It was great for games you were not that arsed buying and a get filler in between the top title games

    For games like that I tend to just buy and sell them from ebay and so they don't tend to cost me much at all anyway.

    yeah i used to buy them and then return them for credit. but this way seems better financially. 12 games for £48 quid once free trial is over

    good so far. i completed life is strange. sent it back in their freepost packaging, once they got it took them 2 days to send next game out which was a lil annoying as i am used to lovefilm turnaround but not end of world. now have first light infamous at home. thats supposed to be a quick game to complete so will send it back after the weekend.

    for 3.99 a month you get 1 game rental to keep as long as you want basically. for me its ususeful to complete games i wouldnt buy normally such as infamous, the order,until dawn etc

    yes there are a few games that I would want to play but never buy. I used to love Lovefilm as I had two on the go at anytime which some were films if I was playing a longer game. My xbox score was through the roof!

    I don't tend to get much time to play as I did (kids and work etc) but still may consider it.

    There is a priorities option where you get first dibs on new titles, obviously you pay more as a result however.

    its fine for me as only a few games i need on release day(yooka laylee will be one)

    completed infamous first light, pretty fun. might get second son at some point. but next up i think i will get heavy rain/beyond 2 souls. anyone every played these? any good?

    I find you can never really 'rent' sports games as they are usually ongoing! I am playing RE7 at the moment, creepy as hell!

    i disagree

    i dont play single modes just online in sports games. so when watching nfl you feel like playing......nfl

    but once playoffs over you move on to next thing and thus send madden back. would have been wasted to buy it ouright

    nhl 17 up next for me to coincide with stanley cup playoffs!

    is re7 the latest one? i played the demo. way too scary for me. i dont like putting myself though stuff like that!

    Yes RE7 is really freaky! It's like Saw mixed with resident evil!

    Agree but I think the first one had that the others didn't. This one definitely has it!
