  1. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    It's been a pretty positive experience overall. The DualSense controller does make the DualShock 4 feel like something that came from a Fisher Price set. Only downside I've had is the DualSense that came with my PS5 broke after 6 weeks, however Sony's Customer Service was pretty good. Took about 10 days from when I called in to getting a replacement, which is still going strong nearly 11 months later. Probably would have had a replacement next day if it wasn't for lockdown. Would have gone to GAME and swapped it out. Having backwards compatibility to PS4 right out the box was ideal, it meant I didn't have to rush through and finish a game off or have to swap back across to the older system to play something. Plus, the DualSense works for PS4 titles, so didn't need to swap back to the DualShock, however even these work straight away on PS5 without needing a special adapter. Playing PS4 titles with a near solid 30/60fps was a great upgrade. More so using the SSD to run the games from, I have since bought an external SSD for PS4 games. PS5 games, can't fault what I've played. I'm not a huge fan of Sony's idea of upgrading PS4 games to PS5 versions at a small cost, when the likes of Microsoft with Xbox can offer Smart Delivery for last gen to next gen upgrades. Thats not to say that all upgrades on PS5 cost, some games like Crash 4, Little Nightmares 2 and Miles Morales were free PS4 to PS5 upgrades, whilst Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima were £10-20 upgrades. Playing Ratchet and Clank on PS5, that was impressive. Astro Playroom, well that was nothing short of a highlight showing off what the console can do. Overall, it's been a pretty good 1st year for PS5. 2022 is shaping up to be better, just hoping that stock issues are resolved by then so more people other than scalpers can buy a machine.
  2. Pikmin Bloom (mobile)

    Sent requests to everyone who posted a code above, for others mine is 8553 5584 7495 This weekend brings the first Pikmin Community Day. It'll be different to other games CD, get a badge for walking 10,000 steps in a day, seeds will grow faster and more nectar from fruits. Been finding the game pretty decent, nice for it to record steps without the game being open. Got an app on my phone which syncs my Samsung watch steps to Google Fit once a day. When i'm doing stuff like Ring Fit or making a cuppa, i don't tend to carry my phone around, so at least i'll get a few extra steps in.
  3. The Tomorrow Children (PS4)

    That's something i wasn't expecting. Current-gen version incoming (hopefully).
  4. House buying is the worst

    Getting the keys for the new house on Friday, were meant to get them 2 weeks ago but the owners daughter asked for a bit longer as they needed to clear out. Been packing over the weekend, the landlord wants us out by months end. Have put in notices to swap our gas/electric across and the internet as i'm still home working for a while yet. Making use of friends and family over the next weekend to move stuff from the flat, and got a van coming on Monday to take the bulky goods.
  5. Think i'll treat this Switch revision the same as i did when they announced the 3DSXL/New 3DS. Probably will pick it up, but only if my current model decides to break. I don't see enough of an upgrade to this revision to rush out and get it when it comes out.
  6. Metroid Dread

    Have noticed that both Zero Mission and Fusion are charting in the WiiU eShop, with Metroid Prime coming in 4th since Dread was revealed at E3. Physical copies of Fusion, Zero Mission and Samus Returns are flying off virtual shelves, with prices for some being pretty high. I think the love for Metroid is still there.
  7. House buying is the worst

    Mortgage approved on Friday, had the survey report back on checking the property for any issues also on Friday. Rated from Green, Amber to Red. Green being ok, red being "Needs fixing now". Had a couple of red, down to electrics, gas and boiler. A deeper search was because they couldn't find or had access to the latest inspection documents so had no idea if they were ok. Have let the solicitor know, so hopefully the issues are resolved before we hand over monies Update The vendor has found the documentation for the gas and boiler, however none for the electricity. They have agreed after we asked (no legal obligation to do so) to get in an electrician to do the checks. So that's one less cost to worry about, which is good news for us.
  8. House buying is the worst

    Had an offer accepted on a house start of May, so finally moving out from private rental to ownership hopefully by middle to end of July. We're sick of the neighbours downstairs smoking weed, blasting loud music and just being annoying. Landlord was round the other month and could smell weed, thought it was me. Absolute pain in the rear searching for a place, we saw many houses over the past few months but they were going so, so quick. Offers going on before a viewing was done was one tactic. We went to see one house, but when we got there, an offer was put on and accepted before we stepped foot in the door. Didn't see the point of viewing it after that. Saw one which had a garage, but didn't belong to the house but to a neighbour. In the end, i think it was a case of the owner of the current house accepted our offer as we were first time buyers looking for somewhere to live other than buying up somewhere to rent it back out (which has happened a lot to the houses we've seen ourselves). Was an article i saw the other week, where in Cornwall a house was sold to FTB at a lower offer than a higher one as they were local to the area. Thought that was nice.
  9. Thanks for reminding me, i nearly forgot
  10. Got mine tomorrow. NHS Wales seem to like reminding me every hour today that it's tomorrow.
  11. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Discord on PlayStation, it's been needed. PlayStation ended their community channels on PS4, so this makes more sense after this new partnership now.
  12. The Wrasslin' thread

    Aye. It also caused him a lot of issues which nearly cost him all his friends and his WWF/E career until he found faith, cleaned up and got back into shape. The Summerslam 2002 match being his first back, he was strongly protected by Trips as to not re-aggravate his back issues.
  13. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

    Never completed Skyward Sword on the Wii. It's nice they've finally added controls suitable for handheld, which they kind of had to for Switch Lite owners or those who prefer playing in handheld over docked mode (i know many people who do). Wonder what else they've changed to the game this time around.
  14. River Raids launch later today around 12pm. https://www.vg247.com/2021/02/16/assassins-creed-valhalla-river-raids-patch/ Also, there's some fixes coming in the patch (all details in the link, but the bigger ones for info) Runes and used resources to upgrade Berserker gear will be returned to the player inventory when an item is lost. Improved vibration feedback during fishing. Addressed an issue that caused players to leave disguise mode if players perform any attack while riding. Addressed an issue that prevented players from catching fish in the sea or on coastlines. Addressed an issue that caused school of fish to take a long time to respawn after one was caught. Items purchased at the Animus Store will only be given to players after returning to England from Vinland. Changed predator charge attack animations to give players a little more time to react. Addressed an issue that prevented fabric from being available. Added date of purchase to items listed in the owned section of the store. Removed diamond rune slots from gear set pieces other than torsos. Runes that were slotted into these will be returned to the player inventory. Addressed various graphics or lighting issues. Addressed various texture issues. Addressed an issue that caused explosion VFX to be missing when oil jars explode. Oil jars will now go BOOM. (PS4/PS5) The Muspell Warg mount will now burn with the fires of Hel! The blood of your enemies will now soil all clothing. Addressed various character or NPC animation issues. Addressed various clipping issues. Addressed an issue that prevented visual effects of the Draugr set to be displayed. Addressed an issue that caused arrows to disappear from the quiver after reequipping the bow from the inventory
  15. bad stuff thread.

    Update on our boiler issues. Electric board in the cupboard is faulty, it's sending a signal to the pump to run consistent and the boiler to fire up. We had the heating valve changed, and in the process the boiler guy fried the hot water valve he replaced a few weeks ago. Electrician out on Monday to check all the wiring out, possible rewiring needed. Landlord had to give the go ahead, but had little choice really. We can use the boiler, but have to cut the power after we've heated the flat through, otherwise it'll never go off even if we switch the heat setting off
