  1. Questions

    Thanks for pointing it out. There was a certificate in place but a redirect needed adding, and the content links needed updating.
  2. I haven’t felt frame rates plummet like this since split-screen Mystic Cave Zone on Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  3. House buying is the worst

    I was so naive when this thread was created. House buying is nothing compared to the combination of house buying and selling at the same time.
  4. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    I'm playing through it on Hard and I accidentally locked out Rhea's max relationship level. Now I guess I have a reason to give it another playthrough

    Divinity 2 is an absolutely stellar oldschool RPG, truly brilliant. Check it out if it's your jam, especially if you have a second player to go co-op with. You won't be disappointed.

    Weeeell I probably won't delete an account you have no access to.......... So it can just sit there, preserved for all time
  7. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    The more I play this the more I'm shocked by the presentation. The blurry stitched-together screenshots used as the background during "cutscenes", the lazy animations like any archer beyond the starting class putting an arrow into a non-existent quiver. It's just sloppy and not the polish I expect from Nintendo.
  8. Collections

    I was once building a budding retro games collection, but when I bought my own house and space became limited that all got shuffled away to the garage. Now that I have less room to put my stuff, and I'm awareness of the stress of tidying and moving house etc, I kinda have this desire to let physical collections be a thing of the past. I have nothing against those with a collect hobby, and I'm envious that you have somewhere for it all to live, but for me having less stuff is a huge feeling of relief, so I don't see myself ever being a collector of anything again. Unless of course I become fabulously wealthy.
  9. What Have You Bought?

    The best thing about that game is that there was only one entry in the series despite the title. Also I rock at that game, 1v1 me on XBLA version rn
  10. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    I just plucked out an era, it's not that the PS2 was better or worse than anything else at the time, just that we're several years beyond that level of tech now and I'd expect more. We've just got these really flat textures, boxy buildings, bland skyboxes, poor draw distances. In an era when I'm used to hub worlds that look much more alive, the monastery looks like a fan game. Even anime-themed games from the last generation looked much better, like the Naruto games.

    Loving this. Love Fire Emblem. But. And I normally barely notice visuals but... we gonna touch on how butt ugly this game is? Especially wandering around the monastery, feels like a PS2 game.
  12. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Don't be so sure, the people buying brand new PS5s within the first 6 months are probably not those that have the heaviest affect on figures. You can see on that graph most have shallow starts then plenty of jumps later on at holidays etc. When the PS5 comes out the PS4 will drop in price and become an option for many thousands of new households and young new gamers.
  13. House buying is the worst

    Think they just went with a slightly better offer, or maybe someone in a slightly better position. Fair enough if it's the latter really, I would take a FTB over me.
  14. House buying is the worst

    Just put an offer on a house back in the area I used to live Probably won't get it, but pretty sweet that I'm able to take a shot at it. Aww yea long term goals. Also: back on the topic of house buying being the worst, blimey the anxiety of waiting to hear back about this house is killing me. Edit: Didn't get it, but at least now I can go back to breathing normally.
