    Yeah thats me haha
  2. Spider-Man (PS4)

    Hm, appreciated but I'm getting " This code can't be applied to your order. " Edit: managed it with guest checkout in incognito window
  3. Of course not (the condescending tone wasn't necessary...) but there are repeatedly areas that seem that they were designed to lead somewhere, you find a path, it goes over a hill, leads to a climb, you run over to some trees, you fight some enemies and think you're about to find a puzzle, NPC, or even a settlement but instead you're greeted with a wall or something, so you climb the nearest mountain or turn around and carry on. It's fine because it doesn't break the flow of exploration, but it would've been even more exciting to me if just a little more frequently you bumped into a little bit of variety beyond the quickly established checklist of encounters.
  4. Really?? I loved BotW and Hyrule is immense and brilliant. But... it's also hugely empty and devoid of life in a hundred locations. In part this is by design, the centre of the map has been ruined by Ganon and its inhabitants scattered. This could be, in fiction, rebuilt to a bustling and habitable world. But in part it's presumably due to time limitations, there are long valleys and mountain climbs and waterfalls that seem that they're leading you somewhere but then just... end at a Lynel fight, or a Korok, or sometimes just nothingness. To me right from the moment I'd found the last town in Hyrule, I thought this location was dying to be revisited and revamped to reach it's full potential. The story has primed it, and from a technical perspective it's the perfect canvas to begin perfecting. I loved slogging through the forest and over mountains and making my way up to Zora's domain, however most of these key locations feel densely packed but sparsely positioned. Of course that's not to say you couldn't also at the very least take the engine and array of templates and create a new world and still come back sufficiently bigger and better. But... this is just where my head's been since I played it. (Back to Termina tho, now that's an idea I can get behind )
  5. Spider-Man (PS4)

    I didn't watch much of that but I read some comments that there's not a lot of momentum in the webswinging? I'm starting to get cold feet on this pre-order, what with that pricetag...
  6. Well I for one liked it, and I'm glad there'll be more. The plot was definitely lop-sided, too much time focusing on training and like you said, barely any fighting. However, this would basically be solved by a sequel, which would have less setup. I think the characters were great, there was more depth to all of them than they ever got in years of Childrens television. I liked the alien costumes too, thought they made a lot of sense in the universe, but there's room to change those too I didn't like the Zord designs much though.
  7. Spider-Man (PS4)

    It really is a bit pricey isn't it... With Shadow of the Tomb Raider also being £45 it's a potentially expensive month....
  8. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Dead Cells is absolutely awesome. Very addictive, "one more try" kinda game.
  9. Overcooked 2

    Pretty annoyed that the physical release of this costs £10 more on Switch! Switch is ideal for it but I'd need a fourth controller to get the most out of it. I really want this, in theory it's so perfect for the platform, would go down well with my g/f's family on trips etc., but right now price - including at the most another controller and at the least one of those USB adapters - is holding me back.
  10. good stuff thread.

    I did one of those a couple of months ago that was Wizard themed (was with my g/f's younger siblings). It was great! And yeah we didn't fly through it but we did beat it in good time. Off to a board game cafe with some mates tonight, should be great
  11. Netflix

    Better Call Saul is back next month. August's offering looks pretty decent http://www.denofgeek.com/uk/movies/netflix/36720/new-on-netflix-uk-whats-added-in-august-2018
  12. Who's That Birthday Boy?

    A belated happy b-day Poké-man
  13. What Have You Bought?

    Yeah I went to backup and the funny thing was, I realised I don't really have a lot of important data these days not on my OS drive anyway. 18 year old me would've been having a heart attack at all the work, music, writing, designs etc that could've been lost. But now it's like "eh, all my sites are on git, all my game saves are in the cloud" etc
  14. What Have You Bought?

    So some total BS setting it up When I had it open to put the fan in, I also added in a USB PCI card. Two things came from this, one I realised that shitty fan can't do anything flashy with LEDs without an extra, £30 part (wtf corsair, and partly I'm obviously to blame for not researching properly). But much worse, when I started my PC back up, my SSD wasn't recognised. After checking and rechecking everything I gave up to the point I had filled out the warranty form for the SSD. Then, when going to boot ubuntu to see if anything could be salvaged off the disk, the SSD appeared again as a boot option and all was OK again two hours later mind you. On top of all that... the USB card doesn't work. The £5 strip of LEDs on the back of the TV went fine though
  15. PlayStation Vita Console Discussion

    Dude! Get 999 at least, what a game, nobody should miss it.
  16. What Have You Bought?

    Decided to move my main PC into my front room and make more of a show of it, then move my Oculus down there too gonna be much more room for VR and easier to shuffle everything out of the way.
  17. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

    He's probably going to still be a jerk. Look at him, he's got anime jerk eyes.
  18. It's ongoing but it has a little bit of self-respect so unlike Naruto etc, it takes breaks between seasons when there isn't any content instead of descending into filler hell So there's only 53 or so episodes at the moment and when it finishes the current run it will take another break. It's very good, I think you'll like it off the back of something like Naruto.
  19. Yeah Crunchyroll's apps are all trash. I gave up on the PS4 app after it just buffers constantly (despite a 200MB+ connection). I've cancelled my subscription as a result. Does Boruto get better? To me for 15-20 episodes it just felt like Naruto fillers. Then they started telling the in-between story from the Manga which was ok but since I'd already read it, I just stopped paying attention at that point. @Hero-of-Time have you watched My Hero Academia?
  20. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Hard to beat the Sony Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 IMO. It's not that cheap though and I've seen QC might not be great on the newer model without the hinge (the hinge can snap though so avoid those anyway). Just get a replacement if people say your mic is no good.
  21. Arrowverse TV Shows

    That actually looks good. I was a huge fan of Arrow and Flash at first and I put up with a lot of crap, but I really just fell out with them gradually and then, without even consciously trying, just stopped watching.

  23. Spider-Man (PS4)

    This is literally the only game I give a shit about in the whole world right now. My expectations are so high that if it's bad it could kill me at this point.
  24. House buying is the worst

    Tesco, 2.08%, 28 months remaining. I overpaid my mortgage in the second year by a fair amount though.
  25. DC Cinematic Universe Discussion

    What the actual fuck is that
