  1. What Have You Bought?

    Ooh nice. I'm tempted to get the standard 6 but waiting for reviews/real life camera demos before jumping in. The free headphones make it even more appealing (even if I don't really need any more headphones...)
  2. Damn. Would've jumped on that but I don't have my Switch with me this weekend! Hope it works out and you guys get the full expansion pass for free!
  3. Formula 1: 2021 Season

    So Lewis was being let off for exceeding track limits at that corner for the first half of the race, and he admitted he was doing it. Red Bull told Verstappen to push it at that corner too, but I believe they may have made a complaint to race control about it too. Then Mercedes told Lewis that it wasn't allowed anymore - orders from race control. Seeing some talk that Max wasn't let off for it when passing Lewis, but no matter what was or wasn't being allowed in terms of track limits for that corner in this race, you're never allowed to complete an overtake off track, so I think it's completely fair that Max has to give back up the place. Shame it came down to that, would've loved to see a bit more tussling between them in the last couple of laps, but was pretty decent viewing regardless. They really do need to get consistent with track limits though. It changes race to race (and seemingly now even within a race!)
  4. God of War (PS4)

    Finished the story of this today. What a treat. Both to play and visually. My main criticism of it was that it wasn't longer. Don't tease me with all of those nine realms and not let me visit them all! Was shocked that I was approaching the end of the story having not visited more of them. I understand that these will likely come on a sequel, but it was just a bit of a bummer. On a similar note, the fact a couple of the realms have only opened post-story is a bit frustrating. I completed the game at Level 5 on normal difficulty, but so much left to do (Valkyries etc.) requires a higher level. I want to see more of this world, but without the main story to pull me along, I have less motivation to do much more. So yeah. Absolutely loved it, but with minor frustrations about the structure. This was my first God of War experience, and now I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel to see what happens next to Kratos and Boy.
  5. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    But there are exceptions. My brother recently got a Series X. FIFA 21 has two versions available to download - the Xbox One version and a Series S/X version. Upgrading isn't seamless, and your full save file doesn't carry over from one version to the next. So he has had to download the One version to continue his progress. I don't know if there are any other exceptions/how many there are, and sure, this is EA and EA suck, but just wanted to point out that Xbox having 'Smart Delivery' doesn't guarantee going from one gen to the next is seamless.
  6. God of War (PS4)

    I'm also playing this, but for the first time thanks to the PS+ collection. Didn't realise when I picked it that it'd be more Norse mythology having just spent 120 hours on Assassin's Creed Valhalla 😂 Anyway, enjoying it so far, up to Alfheim. It truly is a gorgeous game. The main thing I am not enamoured with is all the skill trees and armour upgrades and modifications etc. I feel like there's too much to tinker with and I'm unsure whether I should be spending money upgrading gear I have, or saving it and waiting to find better gear out in the wild. Also just wanted to check if everyone else finds it oddly hilarious whenever Kratos says boy 😁
  7. Lego!

    Got my first Lego in years for Christmas, which was The Child/Baby Yoda. Love it so much. Got the bug now and want some more to give me something to keep me busy/happy through lockdown. Of course my dream set is the £650 Millennium Falcon, but I'm not forking out that much. Would love the Hogwarts Castle but that's also pricey. Tempted by the NES, or maybe the Stranger Things set.
  8. How's everyone getting on with this? It's the first Assassin's Creed I've played in years (I think the last one I dabbled in was Syndicate) and it's got me hooked. About 30 hours in and it feels like I've barely scratched the surface, but not in a way that's making me feel 'do I really have another 50 hours of this to go?' So hopefully it stays that way. The world feels big, but easy and quick to get around, and the main quests are structured in a way that doesn't make you feel like you have to do too much unnecessary wandering. I'm at around a power level of 90, about to head to Oxfordshire, and just started a sidequest I wasn't expecting...
  9. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (RIP)

    Got this as a Christmas gift. I don't remember Sunshine being so difficult, or maybe I've just got bad at Mario games 😂 I remember the non-FLUDD levels being a challenge before, but some of the difficulty of them feels cheap/unfair. The challenging levels of a similar style in the Galaxies/3D Land etc. feel a lot more refined. I miss the long jump! And there doesn't seem to be many 1-Ups around compared to other games. Still quite enjoying it, but remembering why Sunshine is regarded as one of the lesser 3D Marios.
  10. The Star Wars Thread

    All so exciting. Was not expecting a Rogue Squadron film! And that Taika Star Wars logo is so hype. Can't wait to see what he makes.
  11. The Star Wars Thread

    There's got to be an Ahsoka show with Rosario Dawson, surely, as well as an animated Rebels sequel.
  12. The Star Wars Thread

    Sounds like the creative content announcements starts in an hour. Before that it's all businessy stuff!
  13. The Star Wars Thread

    FWIW, I work for Disney, they haven't given us advance knowledge of what's coming but have really been encouraging us to watch tonight as there's good stuff coming! Not sure how much footage will be blocked to the public/only available to investors. Dunno if I'll stay up the four hours tonight, but it should be available to catch up on tomorrow.
  14. Astro's Playroom (PS5)

    @Julius my mum made the same observation re: Starlight by Muse when she overheard it from another room, and once you notice, it becomes even more familiar!
  15. Astro's Playroom (PS5)

    Credits rolled. What a joy this was. Give me a full length sequel please, Sony. Just need to collect a few remaining puzzle pieces and artifacts and get everything from the gacha machines.
