  1. Anthem (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

    Remember when we all laughed at the horse armour in Oblivion. Good times.
  2. Persona 5

    To be fair though, Kanji as a character and questioning his sexuality/masculinity was handled really well IMO. Plus, Yosuke is a known idiot, so saying something stupid like that isn't exactly out of character for him. It probably would have been better to leave it out though.
  3. What Have You Bought?

    Did a timelapse of me building it as well, because why not?
  4. Pets are funnies

    Seeing as I now have a phone that can do super slow motion video, I thought I'd test it on the dog: (The music was not my choice, apparently the phone adds music of it's own)
  5. What Have You Bought?

    I won employee of the month at work and got some Love2Shop vouchers, so decided to treat myself to something I've wanted for ages: Whoever lived here before us swapped the living room door round so that it opens the other way, but didn't move the light switch so it's always behind the door when the door is open. We already have some LED strips around our giant mirror, which light the room up really well, so it made sense to have it controlled by voice. No more shitty light switch or walking across the room in the dark to turn on the mirror. Good times.
  6. Nintendo Switch paid online coming 2018

    Monster Hunter wasn't released at £18 though. Nor is it the RRP set by the developer. Comparing a game that has been heavily discounted to the RRP of old games seems a bit silly to me. I think the problem with this discussion (and virtually all discussions on the gaming industry) is that gaming isn't like movies or books. It's far more varied. Ronnie: You're right, your style of gaming is absolutely cheaper than it's ever been. Base games now are cheaper than base games then. The problem comes with the fact that in the old days the base game and the full game were the same thing. Now if you compare the full game then with the full game (day one DLC, preorder bonuses etc ), I'd say certain games are more expensive nowadays. In short, both sides of this discussion are right, depending on your style of gaming (full vs base game preference). Both opinions are valid IMO.

    His face is also slightly too small for his head. Like Thomas the Tank Engine.
  8. Exercise & Fitness: 2019 Edition!

    Well I went to the open day and I'm now a member. Went with the silver membership, which includes all martial arts, but no gym (bronze is gym only, silver is martial arts and gold is both). The guy who initially showed me around and signed me up seemed to think this was best for starting, as fitness would come from the training. So I now have access to Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu (as well as a bit of boxing and rasslin'). I'll probably start with Muay Thai, as it's what I'd consider a traditional fight, with punches, kicks etc, so it looks easier to get to grips with. Jiu Jitsu is just a whole new world to me. I watched some of the demos and I had no idea what was going on. It was very impressive though and as I said to the instructor "that looks like how most fights end". I'm glad they did an open day, because the hardest part was just going in. They were all super friendly, but there's only so much they can do to to prevent the intimidation factor when there's a cage in the corner of the room and several people kicking each other with alarming velocity (it sounded like a whip cracking as their leg hit the pads). Next step:
  9. Playstation Plus Free Games

    I enjoyed Steep, but so glad I didn't buy it. It's one of those games that has absolutely no sense of progression. You have a level and it's up to you how to increase it, but there's no incentive to do so. You already have access to loads of events and it just unlocks more. It's a good sandbox, but little else. Good as a free game, but not worth buying IMO.
  10. Netflix

    Started watching this. Although I find the 80s American high school aesthetic a bit weird for something set in current day UK, I'm finding it very good so far. The waiting room Mexican wave in episode 3 might have been the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Very well handled episode overall. Serious where it needed to be, but didn't drop it's sense of humour.
  11. General Retro Discussion

    Finally finished Skies of Arcadia Legends. I finished the DC version when it originally came out and it's always been one of my favourite games. It's amazing how little I remember of the game after Crescent Isle. I used to have a pre-end boss save on the DC and just grind endlessly, occasionally finishing the game, but I couldn't remember a lot of the end boss at all this time round. It's still holds up and it's still my favourite old-school JRPG. I think the lower frequency of random battles in Legends definitely helps it. I don't remember the DC version being particularly heavy on them, but the GC version seems a good balance and from what I've read, they lowered the encounter rate quite a bit.
  12. Exercise & Fitness: 2019 Edition!

    The Muay Thai place I've been looking at has been a bit lacklustre in getting back to me. I asked a few questions before Christmas, mainly about membership and schedule and they said to keep an eye on their Facebook page, as they were moving over the Christmas period and membership and schedule would be announced in the new year. A few days ago they posted that classes had started up again, but there was no sign of any schedule or membership announcements. They have got an open day coming up, so I'll be going to that and see what the prices and schedule are like. From the photos on Facebook, their new gym looks great, although I do have a backup just in case. There's a much smaller place in the village I grew up in/my parents live, so I can always fall back on that if plan A turns out to be expensive or shit.
  13. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Ah, there it is. The moral high ground, even though it was you that first mentioned the Switch. Classic Ronnie.
  14. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    At least we can look forward to Nintendo promoting them all when they get inferior ports of 3 year old games.
  15. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Probably easier to promote indie games when there's not much other third party stuff to promote...
