  1. Destiny 2

    I think I'd have returned for Destiny 3 either way, but it's definitely a more promising outlook now. I had a lot of love for D1 and the only reason I was burned by D2 was the weak content releases and weighted focus on loot boxes. By all accounts, Forsaken fixed a lot of that but it was too late for me and most of the NE clan.
  2. General Book Thread

    The movie was definitely good, a worthy recommendation. But, after the book I find it hard not to be disappointed when you're holding out for certain really good scenes and they're dropped altogether.
  3. General Book Thread

    Another book I loved that had a disappointing movie adaptation! Mind you, it just missed a lot of good bits, but was at least still a good movie overall, unlike TTW.
  4. Assassins Creed Odyssey

    I foolishly bought Origins because it was cheap, and I was out of the loop and didn't know this game was due out a week or two later. Now I barely got into that game, because the grind of levelling up on boring sidequests was daunting very early on. And I hear this game is more of the same, is there any reason I might enjoy this one more though? I used to love the AC games, I wish they would return to their roots a bit. It used to be a Hitman style game where you stalked your mark, learned their routes, listened for tips and hid in crowds. Every encounter with town guards was a MGS style mistake meant to be rectified through escape and hiding, not free-flowing melee combat. I'd like to go back to that a bit....
  5. General Book Thread

    They also missed out a lot of very important moments. The name didn't bother me at first but when I tried to convince people to read it, I found several people hung up on it, thinking it would be a soppy romance from the perspective of someone who sits at home while their husband goes off Doctor Whoing (ok, I may have not done a good job of selling it to them)
  6. Persona 5

    A trailer for the release of new information? and there was me getting my hopes up on first watch that we were getting something new in March
  7. General Book Thread

    I love The Time Travellers Wife. It's hard to get people to check it out now because of the combination of the bad name and the terrible movie, but it is really so worth checking out.
  8. Netflix

  9. That's awesome I used to have a setup a bit like that but don't really have much room in my current house, I hope to set it all up again in the future!
  10. NieR: Automata (2017)

    I'm not sure what prices are like over there but that doesn't seem very good, it's frequently < £16 brand new here.
  11. Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Any news is good news I'm still just glad this is a thing.

    Also the numbers might not include lots of people, those who don’t have the internet or those who keep their stats private. Similarly they’ll be inflated by multiple people playing the same game on the same system etc.. My only stats of note are that Transistor was my first game - which was a disappointment after hoping for another Bastion, and less impressive than Drift but 1650 or so hours on Destiny 1.
  13. $1.99/mo?? That's brilliant. I will be signing up to that the moment it's available.
  14. General Movie Thread

    I caught a Spider-Man Into the Spiderverse preview on Saturday and it was stunning. Must-watch for any fans. Probably the best Spider-Man movie so far. And to think, I was so cynical when it was announced.
  15. I honestly thought everything was trash except Daredevil, and even that nearly fell off in season 2. Production values were obviously incredibly high but they never recreated a scrap of the writing or directing talent that really made DD. I wouldn't be surprised if they sunk a lot more cash into these than they should have. I forced myself through JJ season 1, but I never managed to finish a single season of any of the others. Defenders was painful too.
  16. CTR was amazing, we were just chatting about it on Overwatch. Would love a remake.
  17. Switch eShop Thread

    We're just soft now too many tutorials, saves and infinite lives.

    Not on your main account, but I think you could probably make a new account and do a free trial. Since Red Dead Online doesn't use anything you've unlocked in the main game, might be an option?
  20. Switch eShop Thread

    I'm just not a fan of these visuals... think I'd rather dig out an SP and stick R-Type DX in Edit: oooh, the game does have classic visuals though... and it's kinda perfect for Switch.....
  21. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    It's so much more than this If you haven't played any similar games (ie, Dark Souls) be prepared to have your mind blown. It's a clever, raw, especially challenging and brutal experience that makes you really stretch your own skills. There's nothing else like these games really, and if you get it at first you'll be like "what the hell, this game is hard to play and so punishing and yet maybe I'll just try one more time..." and then it'll click... I think it's still the PS4's best exclusive.
  22. Diablo 3

    Noooo Gibbs is timeless keep it here and on PSN
  23. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    @Animal Bloodborne! I think it should be top of the list. God of War is amazing and it's a shame more people haven't played it. What other gen/previous gen have you had?
  24. PlayStation Classic Announced (3rd Dec 2018)

    Super Puzzle Fighter II was a big deal with me and my PS1 owning friends!
  25. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!
