  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Questions

    I could probably disable it for you, but how do I know you're really you
  9. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Not only do I have you as a friend already, but a "Best Friend" thanks anyway though!
  10. Destiny 2

    I'm back in this game playing catch-up! About PL500 now, invite me to things when I'm up to scratch!
  11. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Need to add a new friend for the latest quest! Anyone I haven’t added yet?
  12. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Sorry, I was out of the country when that was happening. However, there's monitoring software on the server, if things go down the people at my office should be notified and look into getting it back up and running. Still intending to move to new hosting and maybe a new system sometime which should help.
  13. Virtual Reality

    Yep that's it. It's now been released in non-VR platforms but it's, IMO, the most perfect 2 player game there is for the system and it's a really fun, tense collaborative challenge.
  14. 3D Printing

    I recently up/down/side-graded to an Ender 3. Fantastic little printer and more suited to my needs (lots of miniatures!) I plan on selling the CR-10S but stupidly I did not keep the box.
  15. Virtual Reality

    @bob your experience echoes exactly my first feelings on the Rift 18 months ago, I'm glad to hear the quest is powerful enough to recapture that. I really think the Quest is perfect not only for introducing people to VR through them buying it, but sharing it with their friends etc. Which will hopefully spread the word, increase the userbase and increase the quality and quantity of content. If this is available on Quest, get it to play as a co-op game because I think you and your wife will really enjoy it: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. Superhot is also one of the best VR experiences as the closed spaces and short burst experiences lend themselves so perfectly to the technology.
