  1. Pokémon 25th Anniversary

    Doesn't Jigglypuff have an enormous (definitely visible) tuft of hair on its head?
  2. Resident Evil Village

    This is only £40 in Tesco right now with a Clubcard.
  3. General TV Thread

    I watched Invincible on Amazon Prime. It was really good! When it started I thought it was a weird Justice league spoof, but one that wasn't really all that funny, but once I realised what it was supposed to be, it got much better. Really looking forward to the next season. We also finished watching Mr Robot at last.
  4. I'm hoping it's not because you used to wear a giant adult nappy to school...
  5. I think it is a valid criticism to have. Personally i am the opposite. I hate games where there is a set path, and only one way to get through it. i think perhaps because it highlights how shit i am at games, and it makes me feel bad. With open games, I can pretend that i didn't want to go that way anyway, and go do something else. 2D side scrollers genuinely fill me with anxiety. I felt similar to others at the beginning of BOTW. I felt a bit aimless, and I ran away from a lot of the enemies because I felt underpowered (I didn't fight a Guardian properly until about 40 hours in). I even stopped playing for a few months, same as you, and then picked it up a while later to start up again. But that second time, i plugged away at it, and slowly got a bit stronger - worked my way across the map doing shrines and picking up hearts. Eventually, you realise that you are strong enough to take on the more difficult enemies, and the game opens up a lot more. I think that if the game didn't have Zelda in the title, it wouldn't be so divisive. People who hate open world games just wouldn't play it, and those who do would have a very enjoyable experience. The (probably large) subset of Zelda fans who hate open world games feel like they have to play it, and then get very angry when they do so.
  6. General Switch Discussion

    I think i've started to get the dreaded JoyCon drift!
  7. That's a really good idea that I wish they would implement in a lot of real world races. Can you imagine the 100m having a running start, but there is a barrier that only drops on the starting pistol. Get there too early and you smash into the barrier. Time it perfectly and you get the perfect running start. Do it for F1 and get some dramatic crashes right at the start of the race!
  8. My charging cable was similarly loose, so I got a needle and had a wiggle. Goodness me there was a lot of crud in there! No wonder the USB-c cable kept falling out.

    Happy Birthday!
  10. Hades (PC, Switch)

    I tried the railgun again last night. Didn't have enough Titan Bloods to get the Hestia, but i did get a cool boon where you fire off a little homing arrow with each shot, as well as a boon from Demeter that turns your cast into an ice beam. I managed to get all the way up to the Minotaur miniboss, and then died shortly after when I got run over by a chariot. I also got a fishing rod? Haven't found anywhere to use it yet, but hopefully I can catch some fish with it soon.
  11. Hades (PC, Switch)

    So I reached the third stage boss a couple of times, and kept getting my arse handed to me. I even got them down to half health a couple of times, and then the other gods join in, and I get reamed. I decided to try and level up a bit first. I realised that you could upgrade your weapon, and needed Titan's blood to do so, but hadn't got more than one bit of it. So I looked up how to get Titan's blood and found out you have to beat the first boss (and the final boss, but that isn't happening any time soon) with each weapon. I have only ever used the spear, so I decided to grind some Titan's blood by beating at least the first boss with each of the other weapons. This confirmed by initial impression that most of the other weapons suck ass (notably the bow), but i managed to get a few more splodges of Titan's blood to level up my spear. Then last night I finally managed to beat the third boss, and then made it all the way to the final boss! I died, obviously, but it sure does feel like i'm progressing!
  12. Space and the Universe

    Presumably they know what course it's on, but not what altitude, so they can work out the line it's going to take, but not how long before it falls.
  13. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Tbh I find collectors weirder than someone wearing hideous shoes. Buying a load of stuff you don't intend to use, that just sits on a shelf until you die...

    Looks good. Goes really well with your orange nail polish.
