  1. Phantasy Star Online 2

    I genuinely think they're just doing it on purpose now.
  2. With the Switch proving far more successful than anyone though possible developers are throwing all sorts of things on to it - so much that it's becoming difficult to pick out what's worth a look and what's not on its e-store. So I thought I'd make a thread specifically to highlight hidden gems and get recommendations from others. Can anyone recommend me an arcade shooter-type game? There's a few on there like 1945 and a couple of side-scrolling Neo Geo games but I don't know which ones are worth the £5/6 for a quick blast and which aren't.
  3. PlayStation/Xbox/PC Bargains

    Shopto have Horizo: Zero Dawn for just under £27 if you still haven't. https://www.shopto.net/video-games/ps4/PS4HO01-horizon-zero-dawn
  4. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    It's a change I would be comfortable with if it meant moving away from the "Season pass" model that charges for new maps & modes and towards what they've done with Titanfall 2.
  5. PlayStation/Xbox/PC Bargains

    Cracking sale on Playstation store with double discounts for Plus subscribers. Picked up Hitman season 1 for less than £20.
  6. The Last Night

    Such a shame, visually it looks terrific. Will be interested to read reviews & analysis of the final product though. Reading it's synopsis there is potential for some interesting stories if it's ideas are sufficiently explored but his previously expressed views definitely throw up some red flags around the concept.
  7. Life is Strange: Before The Storm (PC/XBO/PS4)

    Going to play this whether good or bad. The original season was a haunting if flawed delight and I'm going to want in on the conversation for this. I'd be entirely happy if it didn't any of the time mechanics so long as the characters were all explored properly in relation to the main series. Sounds like they've got some talent on this, so I'm quietly hopeful. PS. Note to self: Buy some Daughter albums.
  8. I sold my old copy of the first Wolfenstein a while back and I do regret it. This looks like they cranked the weirdness up to 11, I cannot wait.
  9. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (PS4/XB1/PC)

    I'm 100% ready for another dose of plane-pornography. Been of a regular fan of the series going all the way back to when it was called "Air Combat" on my dad's Playstation.
  10. Adam West, star of the definitive (in my opinion) 1960s Batman TV show and serial guest star of American animation, passed away earlier today aged 88 after a battle with leukaemia. It was years of seeing him crop up in The Simpsons et all before I was able to recognise & embrace his gentle, comedic, self deprecating majesty. Once I did I would never have gone back. RIP.
  11. PlayStation/Xbox/PC Bargains

    Payday 2 is free on Steam for the next 5 million copies or until June 21st, whichever comes first.
  12. General Election 2017 - MJ popcorn gif edition

    If it's even close to a hung parliament May won't be PM by this time next year. The whole point of all of this was to slam dunk a safe & easy majority. They've ran a campaign on her almost exclusively, the party donors will have her thrown to the kerb if they've fluffed this.
  13. General Election 2017 - MJ popcorn gif edition

    Definitely going to be voting Lib Dem tomorrow, if reluctantly. I'd rather vote Green but Lib Dems have got the best chance against our conservative MP (who has literally never ever voted against the party line). Corbyn would never be my first choice for PM but I at least trust him to not break into my house while I sleep and steal my kidneys. I am worried there's gonna be a Labour/Lib Dem vote split that'll let her carry on, lot of both posters up. Ah well, hopefully Greens will take IoW. Best possible scenario tomorrow: Lib Dems take Portsmouth South, Greens take IoW, May with a majority of 40 or less. I'd love it if the polls suggesting a hung parliament were right but I'm bracing for bad news and preparing my self-medication.
  14. What Have You Bought?

    It's a rare but fine day when I've bought something I wanna yell about.
  15. PC Gaming Discussion

    Not hyper-expensive for Overwatch, which isn't too demanding. A recent i5 and a 1050ti or similar should keep you at 60fps+ on high settings. About £800 or thereabouts for a new system.
  16. Figured it was time to throw a thread up about this - By the morning of November 9th, about 5 days from now, we'll know who will be the new president of the greatest superpower on earth. In the blue corner: a Havard law graduate, former first lady, two term senator, and six years worth of experience as a successful Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton may well be the most qualified person ever to run for the most powerful position the world. In the red corner: a self-admitted serial molester, twice-bankrupt property developer with a string of failed casinos, reality TV star, possibly supported by the Russian KGB, with no previous experience of office and a history of racially discriminatory business practices. Donald Trump now lies within a couple of points of securing the oval office after a lightening rise to the top of the GOP. A federal lawsuit concerning allegations of him raping a 13 year old girl during the 1990s will commence in December. Which candidate will inherit control of the world's largest economy and nuclear arsenal? Will we witness another Clinton presidency or the death of Western civilization? The polls are neck-and-neck. We genuinely have no idea! All we can do now is trust the wisdom of the American voters...
  17. President Trump just fired the director of the FBI. The director of the FBI being James Comey, who may have helped him to the presidency by intervening in the election. The FBI being the police force investigating Trump & co for possible treason. That director of the FBI.
  18. Titanfall 2 (PS4/PC/XBO)

    Managed to pick this up in the current sale, wish I'd picked it up earlier TBH - Overwatch is still my shooter of choice but this is a really satisfying game to play if I just want something fun for half an hour. It feels like CoD of duty back in it's heyday, definitely recommend picking it up in the current PSN sale if you haven't already.
  19. General Switch Discussion

    PSA if you still need an SD card: Recently got a Switch and after much searching this 128GB SD card sold at ebuyer is a steal, especially for a UHS Class-3 card (nearer the top end of Nintendo's recommended SD card speed).
  20. PlayStation/Xbox/PC Bargains

    Pretty great shooter-heavy sale on PS4 at the moment - CoD, Destiny, The Division and Titanfall all with hefty discounts. My recommendation: Battlefront Ultimate Edition (with the season pass) is £12, a worthy buy for anyone who needs a lot of loud n' proud Star Wars in their face.
  21. General Election 2017 - MJ popcorn gif edition

    It's certainly going to bring into sharp relief what a terrible leader Corbyn has been. I was hopeful when he was raised up to leadership to finally a left wing/alternative voice in mainstream politics but he's been so incompetent getting his message across while managing to sabotage his own party. Now it seems likely Labour will take the hit and use it as an excuse to carry on like before. As for May I'm almost impressed - yet again she's completely reversed everything she's ever said and expects no questions. At this rate by next month she'll be going from Conservative to FARC Revolutionary mid-sentence.
  22. Star Wars Battlefront 2 (all eras)

    I don't know if I'm down for a new Battlefront but I would watch the heck out of that Star Wars movie. Maybe it's time to make a new Tie Fighter game.
