  1. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Oh damn, Control is on sale on PSN for £20. Already got a to-play list as long as my arm but that's tempting.
  2. Oh noooo. Hope they don't drag too much for you. Wasn't working today but got called in to come pick up my desk PC, now I've got the entire setup I normally have at work on my kitchen table. I find it unsettling for some reason.
  3. Can't believe I forgot this
  4. Boris has finally pulled the trigger - starting tonight all non-essential shops to be shuttered, no non-essential travel, cops empowered to break up any groups over 2 people. Restrictions to stand UK wide for at least 3 weeks. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52012432
  5. My twice-weekly karate class is cancelled until further notice, scuttlebutt is the headteachers at the school we use think schools will be shut by next week. My main concern through all of this are for some of my vulnerable co-workers in the call centre (no working from home) - older folks, people on cancer treatment etc. NHS site says they'll start contacting vulnerable people after the 23rd, I'm honestly hoping it'll be to tell vulnerable people to isolate. My day would become a nightmare but I'd rather that than lose colleagues. Lots of anxiety around, piss-poor messaging from the government isn't helping. Obviously it's a complex problem but Boris on the podium isn't helping. No clarity, no confidence, no ability to break it down to the important essentials.
  6. Formula 1 2020 Season

    Aye, a shame but understandable. Seemed a real mishandling let it get as close as it did. Was going to see the BTCC with my dad in April but that's off too. Weird times all around, let's hope it all passes soon. Until then:
  7. Rate the last film you saw

    Shaun the Sheep: Farmageddon - as charming as you could possibly hope from Ardman, witty and funny almost without fault. Watched it immediately after watching Arrival, which is an A+ double bill with more overlap beyond the obvious themes than you might think.
  8. PC Gaming Discussion

    Has anyone tried GeForce Now? I've tried the free tier after it got out of closed beta and I'm genuinely shocked how good it is. I've got decent internet with a very average AC router a room away but I've got Destiny 2 & Xcom 2 running almost always smoothly at Max/1080/60 on my dusty laptop. Signed up for the premier tier at the promo price, hopefully more compatible games get added over the coming year. Need to start collecting games worth using on it too.
  9. Drunken thread ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll drive.
  10. Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Olympics (Switch)

    This is probably the closest I've ever come to buying a game on the strength of it's soundtrack alone.
  11. Rugby World Cup 2019

    Surprised at how England failed to break out in the final, nowhere near as good as they were against NZ. I've got a SA colleague at work you'll be pleased though.
  12. Death Stranding (PS4 Kojima)

    Having listened to a lot of the discourse (primarily via the Beastcast & Waypoint Radio podcasts) and having seen the incredibly mixed responses I'm the most fascinated I've very been to play this. Good or bad it looks like this is easily the most fascinating game ever made with a significant budget.
  13. I'm sort of baffled the way EA have promo'd this, literally everything I've heard about it sounds much more interesting than the game EA seems to want us believe it is (a linear action-jumpy game rather than the Star Wars-flavoured Metroid/Dark Souls mix it apparently is?). It's like EA are terrified of giving us anything interesting.
  14. Fire Emblem: Three Houses (26th July 2019)

    Recently finished my first play through of Blue Lions, after 80 hours I cant play any more of that game and simultaneously desperately want to. I'm afraid to go near my Switch because there's other games I want to play and things I need to do. It does a decent job of creating a world where people have reasons to fight and, after checking a wiki, also hiding the full picture behind the different routes & viewpoints of each faction.
