  1. Playstation Plus Free Games

    Sniper Elite 4 is tremendous fun, a highly therapeutic Nazi squishing game. The sort of thing that make the £50 a year worth while by giving me something I may not have ever bought for myself.
  2. Horizon: Zero Dawn

    It was a bit all over the place but Aloy's personal journey and her quest to discover her origins was the stuff that really made a connection, even when some of the lore & world building got a little too thick for my tastes. I'd love for more focus on Aloy and the characters she meets in the next game as a driving force. I've no doubt they're already making a sequel, it's sold way too well, though it'll take years to put a new big open world game together. Bet you my boots they announce a sequel the same day they announce a PS5.
  3. Brexit 2019

    It's legit baffling to me that May isn't whipping/doing more to tell her MPs to vote to take No-Deal off the table even after finally FINALLY admitting out loud what shitstorm no-deal would be - if it isn't ruled out after tonight's vote I might lose my mind. Difficult to tell if the EU would even grant us an extension without immediately presenting an alternate way forward at this point - revoking Article 50 and starting over could be the only realistic way forward but I can't imagine the PM being that brave or sensible even now that she has nothing left to lose.
  4. Detective Pikachu - The Movie

    That it looks as good as it does is still the most baffling thing about the whole project.
  5. Brexit 2019

    Apparently May is going to go "back to Brussles" but I genuinely don't understand what they hope to get without even having an agreed alternative? If I was representing the European Union I wouldn't even bother turning up to the meeting, I'd send the temp just to laugh in their face.
  6. What Have You Bought?

    That would probably be less painful TBH.
  7. What Have You Bought?

    Finally snapped and bought a Switch pro controller. If I'm going to have my ass handed to me by a Pikachu piloted by some 8 year old from Taiwan over and over I may as well give myself a fighting chance.
  8. What Have You Bought?

    Boring but a hell of a bargain y'all might want to know about - I just grabbed a D-Link EXO "smart" AC router for less than £20 from Ebuyer which is an INSANE price for a router of this spec (like I literally think it might be a mistake) - the same model currently starts at just under £60 at Amazon by comparison. EDIT: Boo, they noticed their mistake, cancelled the order and quickly set it to "out of stock" - sly devils.
  9. Detective Pikachu - The Movie

    I cam back to this forum for the first time in MONTHS after seeing this trailer because... because... Photorealistic... Jigglypuff... I... I think I'm into it?
  10. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    I was wary of it before launch but the extent the loot box system extends through the entire game sounds absurd for a game that isn't free up front, even compared to other examples this year. If it went actually free-to-play a year from now I would not be completely shocked - and it'd be the right thing to do.
  11. Star Trek Discovery (2017)

    Really enjoying this so far, much more than I expected to. The change from an ensemble cast has freed it to change the wider world if needed and it definitely has a spark of old fashioned idealism at it's core, standing at odds with it's darker setting. I just hope any future seasons aren't also set around the war/conflict plot and we can do a little going boldly etc.
  12. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    I normally find Jim Sterling a little contrarian but I finding it difficult not to be compelled by his arguments on loot boxes, especially from someone who claims to have suffered from gambling addiction. A point I agree with wholeheartedly is rejecting the idea that games need loot box systems AND a full-price tag to recoup their costs. Replacing the entire progression system with them and still charging up front is disingenuous at best and absurdly greedy on a guaranteed-hit franchise game like this.
  13. Drunken thread ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey! You leave Keifer and his beautiful doughy dad-bod out of this y'hear.
  14. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    Based on the beta this may not be the best multi-player game from DICE but it's definitely a good chunk of Star Wars in your face and the star-fighting is good enough (once you change the ridiculous default control options) to make me hope Criterion will get to make an entire starfighter game one day. Still waiting to see what the money-in system relating to the card packs is though. Not a must buy but I wouldn't put myself past treating myself sometime with it either.
  15. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    Been playing a lot of the 1st one recently and interested in this but hearing about the card-pack/loot box stuff is giving me pause. I thought it would just be things like grenades & special attacks but having stronger heroes with certain rare cards turning up in paid random loot boxes seems over the pail. I'll have to wait until it comes out and we've all gotten a look.
