  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. The Star Wars Thread

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

    Sounds like the creative content announcements starts in an hour. Before that it's all businessy stuff!
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Perfect! Thanks a lot Hero!

    The controller really is fantastic. Playing Astro's Playroom with it is a delight. Really like the UI but going to have to get used to doing a long press for the main home screen, opposed to the short press for the quick menu bar. Got all my media apps downloaded - noticed quite a few of them were technically PS4 apps being used through backwards compatibility! Played a couple of hours of Spider-Man Remastered and having a lot of fun with it so far - it really is just like the Batman Arkham games, isn't it? Very happy so far. Looking forward to a full day of play tomorrow 😁
  12. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Anyone seen any good deals about for Plus? I might end up waiting to see if there are any Black Friday deals for that as I haven't personally come across a good price this week.
  13. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Mine is here too! Setting it up to download updates while I work. Then tonight, it's game time!

    My amazon order is out for delivery, due between 11:30 and 3:30. HYPE!
  15. I thought I cancelled my preorder for this, intending to ask for it as a Christmas present. Turns out I didn't, and I received an email from ShopTo last night saying they had my order in their warehouse and I couldn't cancel from here! It's being delivered to my flat but I'm at my parents place so who knows when I'll actually get it, guess I've got something to look forward to when I go back.
