  1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Cheers for the tips guys, I’ll try them out next time I play. All this so I can beat a 5 year old. Hope you’re happy with yourselves
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    You’ve pretty much described my main problems right there Sometimes I go flying off the stage, I know you can do two jumps and an upwards attack to get back on, but it’s sometimes like I’ve already done one or both of the jumps, probably accidentally as I can’t seem to jump any more. It also doesn’t feel natural to jump with the Y button, like that should be an attack button. I’m assuming the controls can be remapped, just not sure what would work best.
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I played a bit of Melee a while ago. Spent a while learning all the moves and stuff then got my arse handed to me by someone who just button mashed so I decided this was not a game for me. Always find I’m wrestling with the controls, like I can never do the thing I want to do consistently. Then I find myself just falling off the edge as I struggle to keep up with what’s going on. Oh I am proud. But also disgusted with myself
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    This is quite embarrassing to admit, but my 5 year old daughter (soon to be 6 if that makes it any better) regularly kicks my arse on this game. I just have no idea what is going on haha. I need some tuition like in that early episode of The Simpsons where Bart beats Homer at the boxing game
  5. I’m a driver for Avanti (used to be Virgin) When this first started, I was taking maybe 5-10 people to London on an 11 car train, but these days there are probably 150-200 people on a typical busier service. Obviously there are fewer on some trains, depending on the time of day. There are plenty of measures going on such as much more frequent cleaning but like anywhere public, there will always be some kind of risk, you just have to decide how much the cure is worse than the disease. Which is pretty much my outlook on the whole thing. I live in Bolton so we were one of the towns impacted by the stricter restrictions but I’ve just been mitigating my risk myself. I’ve still had people round, mainly in the garden, when it’s not allowed, I fail to see how it is riskier than going to a pub or restaurant which I haven’t been doing. Only difference I can see is there isn’t a credit card machine in my garden. We’ve got to a point where we’re more afraid of the virus than anything else - our council won’t let the lollipop lady at my daughter’s school come back to work as they haven’t done a risk assessment yet. So they’ve decided that safety of children on the road is less important than a virus that supposedly doesn’t spread as easily outside. It’s madness.
  6. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    Was going to wait till after Christmas to pick an X up, but I’m thinking that it may be best to wait even longer, probably 2022 or so. Most games coming out will still be playable on my OG Xbox One, it’ll take a while for the One to no longer be supported and I’m not too fussed about the higher graphical fidelity/load times etc, otherwise I’d have bought a One X by now. Was thinking that by then, they may be a bit cheaper, any teething issues will be ironed out and the hard drive may be larger. Plus my Game Pass doesn’t expire till June 2022, thanks to the E3 thing they did last year, so maybe I’ll be able to get a deal with 12 months of Game Pass included as well, who knows?
  7. Hades (PC, Switch)

    Instantly turned off by the word Rogue (sexy X-Men member excepted) so I’ll give this one a miss despite the great reviews and the fact that I’ve enjoyed their other titles like Bastion and Transistor I didn’t really like Dead Cells and Binding of Isaac, so I’m not getting burned again.
  8. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    I loved Sunshine, played it not so long ago on GameCube and it was still as fun to play then. Got all 120 shines too. Really hoping for a patch on the controls as they’re awful on this. I can live without the analogue triggers even though we all know it should’ve supported the Smash Bros GameCube controller. And I can just about get to grips with the lack of inverted aim even though it should’ve been an option. But it’s the face buttons that have me all in a twist. Muscle memory is making me press the A button to switch nozzles as it was on X on the Cube. Doesn’t feel natural at all yet. Controls should’ve been B to jump, Y to dive and A to switch nozzles. Still having a blast with 64 and Galaxy though. But I’ll hold on and hope that they listen to the numerous complaints and do something about it but I won’t hold my breath.
  9. General Movie Thread

    Watched Bill and Ted Face the Music last night. I still stand by my opinion of it didn’t need to be made, but it was surprisingly quite a welcome addition to the series. The addition of Anthony Carrigan to the cast was a stroke of genius. He’s fantastic as NoHo Hank in Barry. 6/10
  10. Funny Stuff Thread

    Wonderful! Thanks so much @martinist...not sure what I’m most happy about, that you’ve found this for me or the fact that I didn’t imagine it
  11. Funny Stuff Thread

    My word, this is a strange request so no need to mention it...Bought Super Smash Bros Ultimate the other day, bear with me I am in the right thread...anyway, the music that’s in it reminded me of a weird video that was probably posted here maybe 10 or 15 years ago. The only thing I remember about it is it’s two guys having a pseudo sexual wrestling match with the Kirby (I think) theme from SSB:M. Don’t remember much about it other than it was piss funny and I’d like to send it to a mate purely for the WTF factor Yes, strange request again, but does anyone else remember this and/or have a link to it? I know I didn’t imagine it, at least I hope not anyway
  12. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    Thing is, Halo is launching on XBO as well, so there’s really no point in picking up a £400+ console just to have slightly nicer graphics and shorter loading times. I wasn’t going to buy a Series X for another couple of years anyway, didn’t Microsoft say that all new first party releases for at least the next two years would be playable on an OG Xbox One? Seems a mad strategy if you want people to pick up a shiny new box.
  13. Twitch is now Prime Gaming

    Really? I always thought it was a separate entity. Maybe the Prime monicker should’ve tipped me off. Haha. Could’ve signed up ages ago. Oh well.
  14. Anyone with an Amazon Prime account can now claim free Twitch Prime as of yesterday. I still play GTA Online so it’s worth it to get the $1m a month that they give you for playing but there are other freebies on there to claim, including free games. Wasn’t going to sign up for Twitch Prime but now it’s part of Amazon, it’s worth doing. No extra cost too.
  15. Indie Games

    Braid: Anniversary Edition coming early next year.
