  1. General Switch Discussion

    I updated the controllers. Basically, the controls are responsive and there are no inputs being lost. It's just that the on-screen pointer starts to drift frequently. Which is honestly infuriating when I'm trying to build a pretty precise bridge. Bottom line, I don't want this crappy pointer functionality anyway. There really should be another option for the game.

    I bought Poly Bridge yesterday. Was really looking forward to it. The docked controls are absolutely dire. Really ruin the experience. I hear undocked is better but I've not tried it yet. I hope they patch it soon.
  3. Destiny 2

    I gave CoO a go. Got half way through the second mission before deciding to sprint all the way through it because it was so incredibly boring and I wanted to play Overwatch.
  4. Destiny 2

    I honestly wouldn't even say the core content is good. The strikes aren't great, the PvP is dull, the Raid is...okay. The actual gameplay? The slow recharge times are a strange decision, the lack of class customisation is absolutely awful, the exotics are terrible, the way special and power weapons work are catastrophically bad. It goes beyond lacking replayability, it's actually just a bad game. With about the same amount of story as Destiny 1, and all the lore gutted from it. The art direction and sound/music are excellent though.
  5. Destiny 2

    I don't think I can be bothered to switch my PS4 on for this.

    Ignoring the fact Antiope was meant to be in this film, it's not hard to imply her relation and importance to Diana without explaining who she was. Especially when the reason for bringing up loss is due to the loss of Cyborg's mother. Steve Trevor is such a tenuous link to loss it just makes Diana sound like 'Yeah, me too. I lost a person too. Deal with it (...if you can...but I'm a hypocrite because I can't, as w0t Batman said)' instead of relaying a modicum of empathy, 'I understand what it is like to lose a mother.' Especially as she is an Amazon, and from an island full of women. That her thoughts go straight to Steve is...weak sauce. Also, in terms of the movie-verse, if you know about Steve Trevor, you'd know about Antiope...who again, was meant to feature at the start of the film battling Steppenwolf. And the comics are absolutely awesome at the moment. Especially since Rebirth. Rebirth, Doomsday Clock, Mister Miracle, Dark Knights Metal, White Knight; the quality of comics of the moment and the number of good titles is insane. We've not had it this good in decades (and even before Rebirth, Wonder Woman's run is maybe her best, Batman has been stellar for more than 5 years, and Darkseid War is absolutely brilliant). They put all these movies to shame. Everyone loves Ragnarok, Aaron's Thor run makes it look absolutely pedestrian and it's not a hard or complicated read by any means.

    I thought it was abjectly awful for the most part. Sitting beside Man of Steel and Batman v Superman it's a jarringly antiseptic and 'safe' film. The music was awful, too. And I can only lay the blame at Joss Whedon's door because clearly nothing in this film was as it was intended to be. I have no idea why Aquaman was even there. I loved Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher as Flash and Cyborg but they were just undone by this piece of shit film...why didn't we see Cyborg's accident? What happened to all the footage in the trailers with him? We don't learn anything about his mother or really see any of his loss. Half of this stuff is in the trailer, what the hell happened to it?! And, I liked Flash, but why was he boiled down to ADHD-Man? We lost his backstory. Any semblance of Barry Allen's brain. There was meant talk about how he pieced together his suit using tach from NASA. But that was super glossed over. Instead, he's basically Impulse. Also, Superman...was literally pointless. Wondy and Aquaman were handling Steppenwolf pretty well, if you ask me. Why was Superman actually needed? So he could turn up and pretend the last two films didn't happen – along with all their questions about power, determinism, innocence and culpability – and just fucking smile them away? WHY WAS AQUAMAN EVEN IN THIS FUCKING FILM? As for women in the movie, what the fuck am I watching? Did Wonder Woman actually come out this year or am I going crazy? Sure Wondy was great for the most part – except for that shitty Flash landing on her tits thing and her need to bring up Steve Trevor (instead on Antiope, who raised her like a mother in many respect and WHO WE SAW DIE IN WONDER WOMAN) – but fucking hell Lois without the (Super)man is just a shell of a woman. That's not Lois Lane. Lois Lane is a crusader. What happened to the LotR-esque opening that was meant to happen, half the Greek Gods had speaking parts. Antiope was meant to be in this. Why does it take everyone to stop Steppenwolf but apparently just Superman? Zod makes Steppenwolf look like a useless shit. This is meant to be Darkseid's uncle. Darkseid Is. This is meant to be a destroyer of worlds, emissary of the anti-life. Darkseid Is. He is meant to exercise Darkseid's will. Darkseid is. Why not use Kalibak? Would have made much more sense. This film is so basic it doesn't even have a fucking sub-plot. It's just one short, shit story. Terrible. Terrible fucking film. Looked terrible. And I don't mean the CGI, the shots and framing were terrible. The reshoots were all blatant. The ideas and weight from the previous films are gone. It's Superfriends: The Movie, and I hated it. I absolutely detest it. It's a film that carries now weight or meanings. It's a film made for no one, about nothing. It was everything I hate about the Disney Marvel films, and I actually adore these characters. I'd rather watch Sucker Punch than this crap again. This film broke my heart.
  9. Super Mario Odyssey

    I've got 420 moons, starting to make my way through the levels again. Really enjoyed the game. I kind of wish there was a bit more of a post-game game; after the story concludes the game feels kind of done, even if I am collecting the rest of the moons. It's not really a criticism, I just feel like with the addition of more moons, that there's a missed opportunity to take it to the next level.
  10. DC Cinematic Universe Discussion

    From what I've seen, the story is meh, the pacing is a bit off but the character stuff is spot on and makes you want to see more. Also, worth watching if you want to be brought up to speed at all. A nicely put together video, there are no spoilers.
  11. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    As far as I'm concerned, Overwatch does loot boxes right. No need to buy them at all. 100% aesthetic. Enough dupes will give you enough to buy any skin you really want, regardless of whether you buy loot boxes or grind a bit for them. With the 'First Win' XP bonus too, it's pretty easy to get a loot box a day. I've dropped money on loot boxes for Overwatch because Blizz have added something new basically every month for free. If they've earned my time that way then I am more than happy to throw a little coin their way. Not to mention Blizz's communication with the community is second to none. I can't abide by this shit though. I won't be touching this. It's poison. Not even when the GOTY edition is in the bargain bin PSN sale for under £10.
  12. Super Mario Odyssey

    I...will give that a go. Not sure why that didn't cross my mind, I take the moped everywhere ha
  13. Super Mario Odyssey

    Is there an easier way to get the skipping rope going because jumping into that is frustrating?
  14. Super Mario Odyssey

    110% deserved. Mario Odyssey is an absolute joy to play. I can't play it in handheld mode though because I want to be all comfy and have my big-ass TV to see it in all its glory. My only negative of the game is that you can't pose Mario in any way for photo mode. Which is a shame because there are so many awesome things to take pictures of, but Mario's face is most just dead...starring off into the distance...he's been doing this shit for over 20 years...this is it...this is as good as it gets....Where was I? Ah yes, I want to select stupid faces for Mario to make. Like in the latest Uncharted photo mode. The omission is doubly weird since you can pose Link in Zelda.
  15. I don't remember the last EA game I bought on PS4 so I can't say it effects me massively. Although I am sad to say I find their Star wars games...lacking. Don't you buy FIFA every year?
