  1. What Have You Bought?

    CR10S, from Gearbest.
  2. What Have You Bought?

    Not even 100% sure why
  3. Mass Effect: Andromeda

    Huh, The issue with the ending for me was never that anything was unexplained, it was that after all the things you did, all the cause and effect, the sprawling trilogy of decisions you had to make, who would live and who would die... all that really did was lock or unlock missions throughout the bulk of the third game, rather than being directly tied to an ending, which itself was literally just "pick one of three colours".
  4. Mass Effect: Andromeda

    Also I think 3 now has a fairly reasonable ending now. Not great, but not the embarrassment that it was when it launched.
  5. Dark (Netflix)

    It's available subbed and dubbed, I'd recommend the former. I tried to get into Dark but I wasn't hooked very quickly and gave up. I'll give it another go at some point...
  6. Report a Bug! [Read OP first]

    Not afaik, worked for me to log in just now.
  7. Catherine: Full Body (PS4 & Vita)

    Yes, it only has a second release on a dead handheld, not nearly enough people got to experience the extra content and it could do with a visual upgrade. I think the game made a name for itself with P4G that would've gained it sales if it was out on a current console.
  8. Catherine: Full Body (PS4 & Vita)

    I'd rather they remade Persona 4!
  9. Well Deadpool sells toys and is established as a franchise, Logan and future experiments less so. But still, that's good to hear.
  10. My main concern here is what this means for R-Rated movies. It seems unlikely there'll be another Logan or Deadpool under the Mouse.
  11. Suggestions

    I'm almost positive merging the two would alienate a lot of the Nintendo board-only visitors. This isn't a gaming discussion board, it's a Nintendo discussion board with an extra board created to discuss non-Nintendo games. As far as I'm concerned, that might as well be a board about Football or tumble driers, it doesn't belong mixed in with the Nintendo threads. To be really frank, discussion has dropped for two reasons: one, people prefer social media to forums and two, we put out about 5% of the news we used to, which drove newcomers in from search engines. Merging boards to bolster discussion is just a patch-job that could make things better or worse temporarily but either way wouldn't solve any problems.
  12. Virtual Reality

    Spent hours yesterday playing Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes from the Oculus store. Brilliant game. If anyone wants a quick fun co-op game, give this a look. One person wears the headset and has to defuse a bomb, and the other uses the computer to read the manual and talk the player through it. (You can also print the manual or read it on another device etc)
  13. Destiny 2

    D2 is a massive failure for me and many others. I spent thousands of hours on D1 but they really messed up D2. The initial run through the main story is great, and the raid was pretty fun, but beyond that the endgame is trash. The PvP is terrible and limited, hell you can't even pick which mode you want to play. They don't make you chase anything worth having in the end game except cosmetics, in an effort to push microtransactions/loot boxes. All the exotics are crap. Snipers are crap. Almost every primary is crap. They're also back to their cycle of communicating, promising more communication, then going dark for months. And the new DLC looks crazy lacking too. No new raid, no pre-DLC content. I regret buying the special edition with the season pass because if I hadn't, I don't think I would've wanted to give them any more money at this point.
  14. Yeah it’s a trend that has existed in these animes for years. It killed of Naruto in the West and killed off Bleach completely. They just can’t seem to see the bigger picture. Instead of pumping something out every week, whether it’s terrible filler, shockingly animated or padded out to ruin the pacing, they should just stop making it for months until they have enough quality content. Hope there’s a “Naruto Kai” one day!
  15. PC Gaming Discussion

    Still working my way slowly with my SO through the first one on PS4, then I'm going to drag the PC down to the TV to play the second!
  16. Podcasts

    If you like D&D, or even if you don't, the guys from My Brother, My Brother and Me have a very funny podcast called The Adventure Zone.
  17. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    I actually stopped in the same place. And I did play previous games. I think I'll go back and give it another try at some point, but the problem really is the sheer scale, I just don't have time for it all.
  18. Suggestions

    Hm it's not really an option, so we'll probably just make a rule against it I think. It'd be against the long running forum rules for signature size anyway.
  19. N-E Band Aid

    Not to be a pessimist but... if you struggled to get people to send in their contributions in 2008, at the peak of this forum's popularity, you ain't gonna have much luck now
  20. House buying is the worst

    Congrats man! Pics?
  21. Your GotY 2017

    Although my interest waned and I grew cynical post-completion, it's definitely Breath of the Wild purely for that first impression, for the engine and interaction, and the huge leap in the right direction. Might not be the best Zelda game or the most accomplished game of the year but it's put the series right back on track in my eyes. Overwatch is my ongoing game of the year. Destiny 2 is my disappointment of the decade.
  22. Playstation Plus Free Games

    Well I loved the first Darksiders, like Zelda for the Xbox 360, so I'm looking forward to playing the second. But yeah, I know I'm sounding like a broken record but PS+ games were never going to be what they once were. I'd rather they lowered the price and dropped the free games.
  23. Virtual Reality

    I just have to chime in to say that Spider-Man Homecoming experience was the shittiest thing I have done on VR so far.
  24. Yeah One Piece anime has always been slow but for me it's too much now. I actually gave up on it last time I decided to catch up, which I would never do before.Every episode you have to skip 10 minutes of recap and opening, then what you do get repeats itself, then drags, constantly switches between scenes, you only get about 30 seconds of progression on the main story. If any series could do with some kind of supercut of each season, it's One Piece.
