  1. Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Holiday 2020)

    Confirmed as a standalone game after rumours swirled about this being a remake with extended extra content.
  2. Kena: Bridge of Spirits (PS4/5)

    This was a highlight for me from yesterdays show, something i'm certainly interested in knowing more about.
  3. I'm expecting roughly £499 for the PS5 initial price point. On a plus, Destiny 2 will be available on PS5 so at least i'll have one game to play, even if i can't get any other game for a while

    Started and finished Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero on the Switch this week. It's easier than previous entries in the series, however it's not bad. Decent bosses with some element of a challenge. Finished with 86% of everything, all powers but not all collectables.
  5. The rumours of Boris relaxing some lockdown measures has caused some friction between the Welsh Government and Westminster. There's a press conference today from the First Minister announcing how Wales will deal with the lockdown, and if it'll be extended it further like Scotland or follow suit with Westminster. Who knows, all i hope is that any restrictions being lifted doesn't cause another spike. It's not phased me as much as other people, don't get me wrong i'd love to see friends and family in person instead of over video calls. But it's given me more time to get things done around the flat that i'd have not had the time to do so. Edit: Wales has extended lockdown another 3 weeks, but Garden centres, Recycling centres and Libraries can re-open (councils have the power to decide on this one). And we can go out more than once a day for exercise as of Monday
  6. Assassin's Creed Valhalla (Winter 2020)

    Was expecting cross-gen, loving the setting this time around. Most likely will get this on PS5.

    Last Friday, i was watching a PlayStation Access stream of Uncharted 4. Which got me in the mood to play said game, and as of yesterday i finished. I'm still amazed at how great this game looks and how much detail went into everything, right down to the mud graphics. Played it with headphones so i enjoyed the sounds and audio in more detail than i did before, and i honestly can't fault it. Naughty Dog went all in on this one, and i thank them for it. Most likely will replay LA Noire this evening onwards. I'm still taking an Assassin's Creed break, tried to get back into Odyssey (might just play the story and a few side-quests as the game feels overwhelming at times). Don't get me wrong, i love the setting and Kassandra is a great character. But after Origins, this feels more padded out than prior entries.
  8. Excellent, was waiting on shrubs coming Beaten to it

    Finished Days Gone yesterday. It started off a little slow, but the story picked up and was extremely satisfying (for me at least). Deacon is a decent character overall, and each of the camps provide something different (be it weapons, bike upgrades and missions). The world is certainly full of opportunity for exploration, but with the right upgrades on the bike you can go further and faster. The big challenge comes from the Hordes, which vary in size (50 to 500) and the location. Best to leave the Hordes until later in-game, when you get (literally) the big guns. They provide a lot of satisfaction, especially if you use strategy over the run and gun method (nothing wrong with this, the Horde just will be relentless in getting you. I enjoyed it that much, i platinum'd it in 1 play-through.
  10. The Wrasslin' thread

    Even though it is Wrestlemania, it doesn't feel like a Wrestlemania. No 80,000 fans in attendance, no epic Wrestlemania entrances. It was good to watch, but WWE should seriously consider an off-season for a while whilst the world sorts itself out. Most other sporting events have done so, and i believe a break might refresh creative a bit as the product hasn't been ideal in recent times.
  11. Disney+

    All i've done over the past couple of days is watch early seasons of The Simpsons and re-watch Boy Meets World.

    Finished the final Assassin's Creed title ive not played on PS4 being Assassin's Creed Rogue the other day. Can't fault it too bad, story is decent enough and I quite like Shay as a character. A few people didn't like this title, but it's underrated as a whole. With that done, decided to give Days Gone another go. Bit more into it, the story's coming out more. Have upgraded my bike a bit, so at least I can travel further between fuel stops (a nice feature which at the moment I've been lucky on for refueling, but I guess you could be unlucky and have a horde come through as you need fuel). Deacon seems a decent character, but I'll find out more as the game progresses.
  13. I'm fortunate that my employer is letting me work from home for the foreseeable future, which puts my mind at ease. Last week, i was getting increasingly anxious about using public transport and was asking to work from home then as to avoid using it. I'm keeping roughly to my usual routine as much as possible (up at the same time i normally get up on a weekday etc) just so it stays fresh and when i do eventually get called back to the office, it won't be a shock to the system.
  14. The Wrasslin' thread

    Wrestlemania 36 live at the WWE Performance Center. It'll be a weird Mania this year with no crowd.
  15. Works half given the go ahead to work from home, however I need to talk to my line manager tomorrow to discuss my options. My opinion, it'll be the best option as I'll avoid the train to/from the office (and those who refuse to stay off when ill). However, it'll depend on what my manager says tomorrow. If it goes well, should be working from home Wednesday onwards
