  1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    I saw "Vault Shopper Set" and thought for a second Pip Boy had been announced.
  2. Rugby World Cup 2019

    A bit disappointed, England got dismantled. Very well deserved from South Africa though. Glad there were a couple of tries, it was painful watching penalty after penalty in the first half.
  3. I wonder if 'event' legendaries will be in the game data from day 1 for hackers to see, or if they'll actually make use of DLC to keep them secret?
  4. Rugby World Cup 2019

    Slightly late... Anyone been watching the World Cup? England and Wales knock out round matches have made for some great weekend breakfast TV so far. Highlights for me so far have been Wales Vs France last weekend and England Vs New Zealand earlier today. Both completely unexpected results and exciting right until the end. Hoping Wales win tomorrow to set up an England Vs Wales final.
  5. Football Season 2019-20

    Southampton just got thrashed 0-9 by Leicester. New record for largest away win. I wonder if the manager will get fired tomorrow.
  6. The name doesn't exactly do it much favours.
  7. I wonder how much money and resources Microsoft spent on backwards compatibility. Is it really worth it?
  8. For me, Microsoft lost it a lot earlier than that E3 conference. Mid way through the last generation they started focusing on streaming services and Kinect. They shut down 1st party studios and focused on just Halo, Gears and Forza. It had all gone stale in the last few years of the consoles life. When the 360 first launched, there were many appealing things which convinced me to get one. With Nintendo taking a different direction with the Wii, 360 was the best place to play all the big multi-format games. It had great exclusives like Mass Effect and Gears of War. There was the potential of Rareware games, still a very enticing name for any Nintendo gamer back then. There was also Xbox Live Arcade, which offered something unique at the time. All these reasons no longer applied by the time the Xbox One and PS4 came along. In contrast, the PS4 is having a very strong final year. Sony has a wide variety of great exclusives and I'm confident they'll continue making them for PS5. The new console will most likely be the best place to play multi-format games again, or at least on par with Microsoft's console. A lot can change in a year, but as things stand I can't see myself jumping on board with Microsoft again.
  9. I'm undecided. Got the PS4 after it was out a year, that was when a lot of multiformat games I wanted were coming out. Having never been a PlayStation gamer previously, the 1st party exclusives didn't appeal to me at first. A great launch title might make me pre order for launch (Horizon 2?). Much less likely, Microsoft will win me over and I'll get the next Xbox instead.
  10. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (PC/XB1/PS4)

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-49985747 I didn't even know a mobile Call of Duty released recently.
  11. Talking of TVs, how many people already have 4k TVs? Upgrading to 4k is another significant cost. I'm still on just a 1080p TV with my PS4, I guess I'll be on the lookout for good 4k deals in the run up to the next consoles.
  12. Football Season 2019-20

    Man City having a surprisingly bad start. If they try and bring in players to strengthen their defence in January, will they be eligible to play in the Champions League? It's looking good for Liverpool so far, I just hope Van Dijk can keep 100% fit for the whole season.
  13. I'm thankful I've never played either. And never will after reading this topic.
  14. The Jimquisition Thread

    I wonder what would happen if EA did go bankrupt. Ideally all the studios and IPs would go up for sale to decent buyers, but I suspect Activision would scoop up everything.
  15. It looks like it's been eating those mushrooms and they've disagreed with its digestive system. Poison/Fairy type?
