  1. The Google Console

    Really intrigued by this and how it could work, two examples from Monday night that hindered me gaming like I wanted to; Thought about getting the division 2 on my Xbox; after a 50gb install from the disc and then a 50gb day one patch to download, I'd be lucky to have started it 24 hours later let alone that night! My girlfriend has a PS4 and was out for the evening, set up a profile, even went on PS Now to see how that would work...games I wanted to play had to be installed etc etc (or so it seemed, either way it wasn't clear enough to make me want to delve further) so I faffed around on the Switch instead of maybe playing the game I'd want to No install times, pick up and play as and when you want...I'm on the Google side of the phone/devices choices as well, so if I can play quality games with that controller from my phone...then I'll be in! Or certainly once pricing is announced I'll see if it's worth me trialling it etc, love a bit of new tech and new ways to play as well.
  2. Reggie Is Retiring

    This is a real shame; for a president to have such a personality and not be some faceless suit was priceless, in my opinion. And he probably saved many employees getting trolled or whatnot by saying the things Nintendo needed him to himself, and not passing it off. He stood up and was counted, even when he probably knew what he was saying was utter bull shit. He was the corporate champ, but secretly the people's champ and he'll probably be glad he doesn't have to get flack from some quarters for simply doing his job. I hope Bowser embraces the fun, enjoyment, and stupid behaviour that Reggie did, getting involved in videos, e3 and the like...but with him and the new President (can't remember his name for the life of me, want to say Shuntaro) I fear the days of the legendary 'Triforce' picture from e3 (Reggie, Iwata and Miyamoto) and things like that will be long gone. Happy retirement Reggie! (Until you turn up at Microsoft in a year...)
  3. Nintendo Direct 13/02 10pm (UK time)

    Some chaps banging the Star Fox Grand Prix drum again; I'd actually be really excited if this game was a thing and had a release date soon, too!
  4. Super Mario Odyssey

  5. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    Fingers crossed, and in a few years.. $$$
  6. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    So I blew £69.99 on the boxed version and...haven't even opened it yet 🙈 Partly because any game time I have I'm still predominantly playing Monster Hunter but also...it all just looks so pretty boxed up and untouched, I'm half wondering whether in a few years it might be worth a few Bob, especially if it hasn't been selling THAT well. Still really want to play the game itself, though! What a dilemma...
  7. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    And I here I am chuffed to have got to HR5 just by fighting with randoms! Hopefully I'll catch up with everyone soon (at some point) so I can crack on with some of these more advanced quests; loving this game at the moment though, it's just what I've needed to get me back into the games sphere even if I am going at a snails pace!
  8. Starlink: Battle for Atlas (do a barrel roll!)

    I went all in and ordered the Starfox pack all boxed up from the official store (well, it's £69.99 and includes an Arwing!) Got an email yesterday to say a delay in shipping, although apparently it has been dispatched this morning so we'll see, quite looking forward to it as apart from fox being in it I know absolutely nothing about the game, haven't followed it apart from seen the metacritic average, so looking forward to giving it a go!
  9. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    I had this problem on the 3DS version so thought I'd ask...is there anywhere/where is the place you can harvest herbs, blue mushrooms, honey etc to make potions and what not easier to combine rather than having to go out collecting blue shells all the time? Found it organically in 3U and 4U, but for some reason I have no idea where it is on this one! Great to be back hunting though, still HR1...(still no armour set just the orginal Bherna gear) and my trusty (rusty) Lance, but I'd be keen for some games at some point
  10. FIFA World Cup: Russia 2018

    Nigeria making stupid decisions in the final third/box, which is stopping them captilasing on some good play. To wade into the Ronaldo/Messi debate, I think I prefer Ronaldo because he's "man made" if that makes sense? Messi is just clearly naturally gifted, whereas Ronaldo has made himself the player he is. What a contrast seeing Ronaldo walk out smiling, singing the anthem with passion etc last night and enjoying his game...Messi looked like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders, you could see he wasn't confident before that penalty and, frankly, it was dreadful! Hate to just sound like I'm agreeing but... Unless Messi does the same at another club, history will look back kinder on Ronaldo. Always makes me smile ruefully to think Rooney was once the world class player in the team and Ronaldo just the lad who did step overs. For all Rooney's records with Utd and England, if only he'd had the mental drive like Ronaldo.
  11. FIFA World Cup: Russia 2018

    I was lucky enough to get Portugal so, although I was already, I'm in full CR7 mode for this World Cup 😍 Peru's creativity was brilliant, just lacked the final touch, if Ronaldo or Messi had tried the back heel like Guerrero did...
  12. FIFA World Cup: Russia 2018

    You watch them get beaten by Iran and Morocco 😂
  13. FIFA World Cup: Russia 2018

    Not to disrespect Morocco or Iran, but if Ronaldo has bagged three against Spain, he could have the golden boot sewn up by the end of the group stages, possibly even beating Klose's all time tournament haul too if he's in this sort of mood! That was the best group game I can ever remember seeing, possibly one of the best ever, at a WC, ignited the tournament!!
  14. E3 2018

    Not sure if it's been posted elsewhere but seeing that as well as getting flack for the Fortnite cross play cock up, Sony "aren't talking to any specialist gaming press" at e3 (100% paraphrase) U wot?
