  1. General Switch Discussion

    Man. I dunno what is UP buy damn I am hooked on what you would poss consider trash of a game. Less than £2 jn tbe current eShop sale - looks asife it is a decievingly addictive game. Following the standard idea of being someone cooking meals together in a kitchen - it is mostly a game about memory sequencing and some fine balances with your back burners too. So far I must admit whilst I would be wont to criticise it it has done a sneaky trick of sticking in an absolute button of variation - but all in good measure/good order. There seems to be many many many missions to be had - of which you can play 'Zen' where there are no hig bonua Rush Hours but also less risk of horrendous failure - but still a challenge in itself that will slowly help acclimatize to the game itself. There's a whole wealth of content(apparently) that one can use to customise one's own restaraunt decor and eventual menu too - but so far I haven't bothered with any of that. It's a particularly peculiar title maybe - one for the folks who like to use button combos to beat the clock - but boy oh boy does this have button combos out the wazoo! From cleaning toilets to killing mice to making the best of all the burgers(or chinese food, or waffles, or ice cream cones, or pizzas, or fries, or rice, or......) - but be warned One step wrong in recipe and your meal is ruined and there is no turning back for that customer - so pay attention to the order; quite literally! Once it's in; you can't take it out. One thing I think say will also be applicable to anyone who picks this up and becomes a fan(srsly, its under two quid! its not exactly fancy but its not a bad punt for something different!)
  2. Switch Gaming Bargains Thread

    Seconding MindFreak there for the Ghibli alone its a steal at £8 and I'll be honest I had thought the gameplay was more boring than it is(just tucked back in this morning - had it originally on ps3 but didnt finish) and I'm feeling excited for it again. I recall feeling some issues with pacing previously and others may too but tbh on the whole its a cracking game - maybe iirc its a bit corridor-esque but its gameplay along the way glim and monster mechanics etc honestly for sub tenner you are laughing at the value hidden within this gem. (good to see you posting btw @Kounan been a while still remember when you joined!)
  3. Among Us (PC, Mobile)

    Aye I'm only just in now myself - dunno who is or isn't here? Think I'm busy weds night but otherwise shall we get a plan going? Next Among Us(date/time tbc): @Rummy @Jonnas @Mr-Paul @LazyBoy @Zell @Vileplume2000 @Nicktendo? @Sheikah?
  4. Switch Gaming Bargains Thread

    Snapped this right up(had it on ps3 but never finished - hoping to rectify that this time round) - also bought a few other titles too. Cat Quest Steamworld Heist and a weirdly satisfying basic restaraunt serving game called Cooked Served Delicious 2 - pretty sure I've still come out under a score with a bit of change too. Sales be dangerous!
  5. Among Us (PC, Mobile)

    Hmmm. I have had a slight issue come up so may not make this tonight; also didnt think about time/clock changes and what zones have and havent moved etc. I'll try and figure out making it work but I'm dependant on a ride to carry some stuff(and myself) back home and it's likely gonna be around all that time I think -.-
  6. Kirby Fighters 2

    Checked demo out a bit; seems cool but may wait to see how much people find it longevity wise? I feel like Nintendo is a bit of the new Disney machine just pushing pushing pushing with old tried and tested not much new(also OFFENDED they tried to trailer Wrestler as new and never before seen when it's CLEARLY Suplex!!!) and this is what....Super Smash Kirby?? Admittedly I may be jaded having just dropped a bit for the gem tree on Clash and finding out its slab not progressive/cumalyive currency spent wise I'd maybe be a bit more comfortable around £8-14 mark but not sure £18 will get me diving in. Many other various offerings that could go to instead tbh. Has anyone gone for it? Any thoughts/feelings? Hadn't know there was even a Fighters 1 tbh so also curious if for those who have has it done enough to change and innovate - as I'd wanna hope the online mode stays popular and active enough for a while?
  7. Skin Colour, Races and Racism

    Following on a bit from this came across this via something probs algorithms on FB the other day and its REALLY worth a read for all those who have been interested in this whole topic so far - because it will again potentially show many a face of this world that you never realised you do not see; And yes. You do recognise David Harewood there on the left.
  8. Among Us (PC, Mobile)

    I'll try and be about for that - what sort of time we thinking? Btw don't hold me to it yet @Cube as I'm not sure where I saw/heard it now but I think there was something about potential colourblind support coming to Among Us soon at some point?
  9. this country has gone mad. Manc asks for 85mil but govt says no money after spaffing 12bil up the wall on failing track and trace. Britain is being asset stripped and taken over -.-
  10. General Switch Discussion

    So...uhh...I apologise in advance but I tried searching(its been out on like...everything, even mobile) and didn't find any mention of it anywhere on here - but I've just a few days ago rediscovered some old freemium crack by the name of Gems of War is apparently on Switch? For any Puzzle Quest/Match 3 lovers it's gonna suck you right up. Being freemium there is ofc much in game purchaseable stuff but I can't say I've felt tempted at any point - has anyone else played it? Multiplat as mentioned but just finding it on switch(damn you eShop advertising!) has kinda made my week/destroyed my life EDIT: destroyed my life?? Yep! Latest from Rumdum Rages(to their credit one of few server/network issues I've had - also language spoiler for anyone who doesnt read titles or know me
  11. Man this topic is a great read - but it makes me realise how much less I have been engaged this generation lol 🤣 Bought my PS4/jumped in I think probs around late 2014 same time as Ganepark(recently acquired a switch but not spent much on it) and maybe it's given me too much I've not pursued a lot of other games - as I get older or maybe just get used to the current world of tech I don't have good patience for 'long' games and prefer quick hit style stuff. Having said that I need to give a real shout out to Overwatch - I checked stats this week and I think I'm rolling up close to 1500hrs or so clocked in it? I've made friends(and even arguably lost some :p) via it and I still play pretty much every week or so - helped in part from befriending an essex lass and now me her and her sister all play - so whilst not a game I'm really wanting to give Online communication a shoutf out for this gen too. Overwatch itself has proved, at least for me, a curious and educational experience. It's made me consider how complex 'closed loop' or designed systems can be - and how humans can affect and interact with that. Spatial awareness tactical positioning thinking ahead of the enemy etc(even if I'm not the best at it) it all constantly keeps my mind thinking and going. In someways by part it reminds me a bit of Smash Bros - it feels constantly revisitable and that I can still learn grow and improve with every match. Even after all thrse years I've only just started delving into a few characters I never really had. Honestly it's the only thing atm(ie OW2) that is pulling me into the next generation. Also slight recognition to Destiny 2 as Jimbob mentioned; tho for me there were some flaws in there I have no doubt enjoyed its content - but it CAN be quite a bait game designed to just keep you playing to keep you playing. They do do that well though! For multiplayer following suit and giving both Overcooked and Overcooked 2 a shoutout here - fantastic multiplayer game even if it can cause some upsets at times when you fail!
  12. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Does the 2FA thing mean basically owning/accessing your device is what iy uses as the key to unlock? obvs frustrating for me once but credit due where it is - I was in NYC once and with both text verification for PSN on my phone AND my emails too I actually couldn't access my own PSN account lol. Very frustrating but bugger me I gotta say that was a secure experience!
  13. Skin Colour, Races and Racism

    Forget my last post(alol) but here's what I want EVERYONE to be aware of - coming in Nov to BBC and also Amazon Prime - The Small Axe Anthology. "If you are a big big Tree....we are a Small Axe.... (Sharp and Ready!) Sharpened to cut you down...Ready to Cut you Down. (-personal remix of unexmployment benefits form 40 and the prince of reggae hisself bob marley) Obvs my leanings are West Indian buy they are London too. If you know about Notting Hill but you don't know about the Mangrove or indeed the Mangrove Nine and the first time in recent history the British Judiciary actively called and ackonwleged the Police as racist acting with racial hatred(a statement they tried rather hard to get retracted and failed) or even that 2 of the Mangrove Nine forewent formal legal and represented themselves then you really really rwally need to be there for the first film of this anthology. I haven't seen it yet and I am SO excited for when it comes because tbh not just cast alone but Steve McQueen has rarely if ever failed to impress me. Srsly. 15th November. BBC. Put it in your calendars.
  14. I'm tempted to see if I still have my originals about to bust them out and play - but I can deffo feel you on the camera. It's why I have issues with a very select few levels but your example of the volcano is a perfect one - tho the one saving grace is if you have enough life you can burn a bit and recover. I used to wonder tbh if BBH was made to try and gaslight us into accepting the bad camera and falling into holes(one thing I will say my Mario career has made me very proficient at; especially considering my recent ventures into SMB 35) *breathes heavily in Plumber...*
  15. Fortnite

    Doubt anyone else will be following by a curiosity in the case may arise from one of the US House Committe's recently released reports(~450pages I'll hopefully read through it this week) into Digital/Big Tech and Market Competition/Monopolisation. I'll quote from the chair's foreword; Google US house/commitee antitrust digital competition or so atm you'll get the media articles and their takes but should also get links to the primary source document in question for anyone interested.
