  1. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    Bloody love the Nier soundtrack. I've also been listening to FF7 Remake stuff a lot, in anticipation of seeing Distant Worlds later this year.
  2. Finished playthrough B and whilst Replicant isn't as good as Automata IMO, it's still a great game. It is a weird one though. A breakdown of my opinions over time: Playthrough A: Act 1: About as generic as it's possible to be. Clearly feels like an old game with a fresh lick of paint. At least the combat and music are good. Playthrough A: Act 2: Ok, things are picking up, but it's still nothing that special. I'm beginning to wonder if all the praise is just nostalgia and weebs. Playthrough A: Ending: Oh, that twist is a bit of a kick in the pants. Playthrough B: This is soul destroyingly brilliant. I'm not a fan of games that start off slow and you have to slog through the tedious early sections, but Nier:Replicant is utterly brilliant towards the end of the first playthrough and beyond. It's not quite Automata levels of brilliant, but it's not far off.
  3. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    I think it's purely for collection purposes. I guess it's like any collectable, the scarcity and the fact that it's so obvioisly related to a certain period of time gives it some extra value to collectors. It's not like they'll get re-released in the future either, as who would want PS5 shoes when the PS6 is out? It's not my sort of thing, but I can see the appeal. Edit: that said, it seems they're just a new colour scheme for existing shoes. Maybe it's just that then: a new colour option and is meant to be worn. They're just white and blue, so hardly a weird colour scheme. I could imagine people actually wearing them if people already wear the other colour variants. To me, it's the shoe design itself that's ugly. The colours are fine.
  4. Bloody loving Dance With The Dead at the moment. Tempted to get the Blackout EP on vinyl, but shipping from the states makes it too much for a 3 track record. Still, a bloody good EP. Can't really describe their music. Heavy, retro dance music maybe?

    Will you just fucking shut up and let people enjoy things. Constantly slating Sony (often with double standards) doesn't make you interesting or funny, it makes you a joke.
  6. I use these whilst cycling: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07XG8L3CW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_7ENTEX5YB566QE0J77A3 They're fine. Nothing fancy, but I only listen to podcasts, so they do the job. I've been using them for just over a year.
  7. Bloody love the first MGS. If updated graphics and gameplay allow/encourage more people to experience it, I'm absolutely all for it. Hell, I'll probably get it myself. Loved the gameplay of the later MGS games, so experiencing the first one's story with that gameplay would be excellent.
  8. Weird how people are against price reductions, but also see Game Pass as fantastic value. Theres no way games on Game Pass are getting full price for every download through it.
  9. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    Yes, but only if Sony did it. As it's Microsoft, it's fine. Remember when games were fun and not just some pissing match between "my brand" and "your brand"?
  10. Been using the recent bike upgrades as motivation to actually get out on it. Bloody good day for it today as well.
  11. What Have You Bought?

    Not given it a proper ride yet, but the initial test was promising. Just need some spacers for the stem, as there's currently a gap between the stem and top of the steering tube (you can just see it in the photo. It's the silver bit sticking up), but it's rideable and feeling much better than before.
  12. What Have You Bought?

    A lot of my recent record purchases have been a bit "loud", so figured some more relaxing music was needed.
  13. I narrowed it down to the cassettes for the swooshing noise, so my red Sharp cassette player is working fine. I did replace the belt on my Alba and Sony cassette players, but the Alba is just plain trash (knew it would be TBF, as I just bought it for the novelty of built in Tetris) and the Sony needs new capacitors. I got fed up after that and just stuck with the Sharp. I'll probably send the Walkman off to be repaired at some point, as it's really nice, but I'm in no hurry. Kind of sticking to vinyl for now, as it's far more reliable.
  14. What Have You Bought?

    My bike saddle is far too uncomfortable on long rides, so I ordered a new one. And then I figured I may as well replace the handlebars, as the current ones are rusty. And then I realised I'd need new grips too. And then I figured that I may as well replace my old mirror at the same time, as the old one was a bit tatty and barely hanging on. And then I figured I'd order some other things, because why not? I bought in the end: I spent far too much...
