    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.

    yeah. i am on the the cheapest 3.99 version where you can get any game 6 months old.

    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?
