  2. Formula 1 2020 Season

    Pole - Russell P1 - Verstappen P2 - Bottas P3 - Russell P4 - Albon P5 - Perez FL - Verstappen
  3. Yakuza 7 (PS4 2020)

    You shouldn’t need to be at 99 for the final Millennium Tower, but... ...yeah, I’ve got the entire party at Lv 99 and had several attempts at it now, but can only survive the first few battles! Have started levelling up in different jobs as well, see if that helps. But even with making use of the Invested Vagabond technique + job EXP boosting items, it’s a time-consuming process.
  4. Formula 1 2020 Season

    Right then. Guess I can put my Not-Hamilton prediction in then. Pole - Bottas FL - Verstappen 1st - Bottas 2nd - Verstappen 3rd - Russel 4th - Albon 5th - Sainz
  5. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    That’s good it’s coming tomorrow, I’ve only got a few weeks left on my sub and I was hoping to use Doom Eternal to test my new laptop. Saves me having to buy it.
  6. Yakuza Remastered Collection

    Nicely done @Hero-of-Time! And yeah, there is so much stuff crammed into Yakuza 5, they went a bit OTT with the amount of content really. I’m almost afraid to ask this... but are you starting Yakuza 6 soon?
  7. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    Thanks for the heads up. I’m now going to wait until next year to resubscribe and play it though, as I’m still enjoying the end-game content in Yakuza Like a Dragon, and then want to get fully immersed in Cyberpunk 2077 next week!
  8. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    Calling @RedShell, Doom Eternal coming to PC Game Pass tomorrow:
  9. Formula 1 2020 Season

    Russell confirmed at Mercedes this weekend, cannot wait to see how he does in that car. Also in the least shocking news of the week Schumacher has been confirmed at Haas for next season. Really looking forward to seeing him in F1 too.
  10. My Nintendo ( Club Nintendo Successor )

    Download code for Super Mario Party today.
  11. General Switch Discussion

    So... Next update will get rid of it then? Good to know.
  12. N-E Café Podcast

    @S.C.G I've not played SoR4 since the release period. What changes did they make to the final boss battle? Have they made it harder?

    Oh really? Yeah, that’s gonna end up resulting in piracy for sure. It’s ALWAYS a web exploit that ends up doing them in...
  15. N-E Café Podcast

    N-E Café Episode 54 now available! Now up on the main page. - - - - - Great episode, I enjoyed listening to your recent games, including Greg's take on Panzer Dragoon Remake, and there's not much I can say because I haven't played the remake yet, but it sounds like the remake is as divisive as the original game was back in the day, as yes, on the Saturn it was a technical showpiece, though I get the feeling that Panzer Dragoon is still very much a niche series overall. I'm still looking forward to it, and I think I will produce a review for it when I finally get that physical copy, but I will say that for anyone new to the Panzer Dragoon series, if you only play one game in the series, and you have access to either an original Xbox or an Xbox One/Xbox Series X, or just know someone who has one, then definitely check out Panzer Dragoon Orta as it's easily one of the best examples of its genre. Some decent discussion on buying games on day one versus waiting it out, I understand that game development can be trying/taxing at any point in time, it has long been the case, but I still think that if it is possible to delay a game, then that is always the best way to go about it, ensuring that you're releasing the best possible product, within the limitations being worked with, coupled with the capability of the studio, because it seems to me that it's better to do the very best you can, without then trying to cross that boundary of trying to deliver more, but possibly overstretching and then not meeting those demands which the studio might have imposed on themselves. But when it comes to just releasing games with little to nothing in the way of testing etc, there's not much to say except better standards are needed. As for updates, it's a catch 22... some games are vastly improved with patches, Panzer Dragoon Remake has had a fair amount added to it since launch, including a new soundtrack as I understand it, but in other cases, updates can either change or break a game, such as the most recent update for Streets of Rage 4, which imrproved probably around ninety percent of the game, but the final stage is now perhaps less enjoyable when it comes to the final boss battle, and the online seems to have been broken, at least on the Xbox One version. Anyway, looking forward to next weeks episode, and I'll update this weeks episode with the YouTube embed, as soon as it's available.
  16. General Switch Discussion

    I am not.
  17. General Switch Discussion

    Interesting, the Switch creates a local web server to serve the images to send to your device. I bet that'll get exploited somehow. I hate how the Nintendo Switch Online icon is in a different style to the rest of the icons. Twitter compresses images (and so does Facebook, I believe(?)) so in theory you should get better quality images if you send it direct to your device. If you're bothered about that anyway.
  18. Sprocket's birthday today. Let me know if you want to visit.
  19. Yakuza Remastered Collection

    Another day, another Yakuza game completed. I enjoyed the game but it has been the weakest in the series for me. They tried to replicate what they had with the 4th game and 4 protagonists but it didn't quite work this time around. There are some great story beats but because the chapters are so long and you switch between different characters, certain things get lost along the way. Yakuza 4 got the balance just right but I felt in this one there was too much going on and too many characters and plot lines to keep the intrigue going. It didn't help that I wasn't a fan of Shinada's storyline either. As I said, it's still enjoyable and a great game but it didn't meet the standards set by the other games in series.
  20. What Have You Bought?

    2nd generation Echo Show to replace the first gen i've got sitting in the living room.
  21. Yakuza 7 (PS4 2020)

    Well thats Yakuza 7 done. Might grind to 99 to get through the final Millenium Tower and I've never even touched Dragon Kart so i'll go do that eventually. I might have cheated a little and grinded some Invested Vagabonds in the Kamurocho underground... Ended up at level 69 before starting the final climb. Even with the level advantage the boss at the top was a little damage sponge. Nice ending though, set it up nicely for Yakuza 8
  22. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    S is available on Amazon.
  23. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    confirmation of Control, happy to see Yooka Laylee on there too! Played it on the Switch (got to the impossible lair but never really gave it a proper go) but love to go back on it to get some achievements 😎
  24. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Got notifications they were looking at my device this morning and 3 hours later it’s on its way back.
  25. Smash Bros Switch Roster Prediction Competition

    Can't believe I'm still on top of a list I don't even own yet I'm waiting for the Ultimate Ultimate edition for the Switch Pro Deluxe U
  26. Doom Eternal

    According to the eShop it's only 18gb, surely they could have squeezed it onto a 16gb card and released a physical copy. It does look quite good though, Panic Button have obviously been working hard the last six months to get it running consistently. I've been slowly working my way through all the previous DOOM games recently so if I enjoy the 2016 reboot on Switch I'll be sure to check out Eternal.
  27. Immortals Fenyx Rising (December 3, 2020)

    The Switch version looks to run surprisingly well, obviously an enormous visual downgrade from the PS5 version but I was expecting it to look a lot worse. There's way too much going on with the HUD though for my liking, probably as a consequence of all the usual Ubisoft open world tropes. It's the kind of game I'd happily check out a demo for and maybe pick up the full version in a sale but by the time it goes down in price BOTW 2 should be on the horizon and that will undoubtedly do a better job of scratching the open world itch this is trying to capitalise on.
