  1. Thought it might be nice to have a thread to discuss various Kickstarter Projects, especially as they can sometimes span a wide range of gaming devices! Also because they are beginning to turn up in various other threads on this forum, it would be good to have a place for them to go that's perhaps more appropriate/concise. If they're big enough projects they can of course have their own thread in this board, which is more preferable anyway... like the Shenmue III one... or we can thread rip them into their own threads. But this thread can be used to help bring others to peoples attention, or even just to discuss your thoughts and opinions on them... ... or for projects you'd maybe like to see! So the thread is here as and when it's needed... go for it!
  2. Seems a bit strange to me that they abandon it in favour of something very Vita (Wii U)... because why not just integrate the Vita (we all knows it needs the help/purpose). And also they say such changes would allow for deep Vita integration when surely it would be more the opposite?... taking away opportunities from the Vita. Revealed within weeks, not months?... yes please, leaves E3 for the games; but I wont be buying it for sometime anyway so ultimately it would make little difference

  4. PlayStation/Xbox/PC Bargains

    Hey guys, We're gonna have a bit of a change and have any Gaming Bargains you find be posted in a thread in each of the boards, instead of having the separate Bargains Boards... which has been renamed and will now just be used for Sales and Trades. It should get much more activity and be seen my more people this way. So if you find a PS3, PS4, Vita, 360, Xbox One, PC bargain etc... this is now the place
  5. Alien: Isolation

    Everyone's bound to be skeptical of this off the back of Colonial Marines, but this is a different team and is very much a survival horror... Few pieces from IGN's write-up Gameplay
  6. Look like it could be a fun Shantae-esque handheld title.
  7. What Have You Bought?

    Ahh thanks. Nice to hear it combines both programmes.
  8. What Have You Bought?

    “I don’t have much money, but boy if I did...” That’s partly why it appeals. I first heard of Affinity a couple of months back who had got tired of Adobe’s pricing and was ditching it in favour of learning Affinity. He seemed to be adapting to it fairly well, and it’s good to hear you’re getting on ok with it. Definitely worth a look. £45 is a steal compared to Photoshop, their photography package of Photoshop and Lightroom starts from £10 a month... Looking on their website it seems they have a Lightroom equivalent called Affinity Photo?... Any experience with that?
  9. What Have You Bought?

    Oh awesome. I’ll give Affinity a look!
  10. What Have You Bought?

    What ya soldering?
  11. Laptops?

    Oh maybe. I was just thinking of external hard drives and USB’s. Are they universal now? There was certainly a time when Apple products requires their own external hardware and disc drives etc... right??
  12. Laptops?

    @Vileplume2000Thank you. Yeah I think what you’re saying is definitely the correct approach. I can run and use Photoshop on my 5/10 year old £500 Samsung laptop, but the screen is awful for seeing the real colour of the photos I’m taking. I was blown away when I looked at some of my pics on a MAC last year. I think for ease of being able to work on things from anywhere I will look for a laptop with a quality screen rather than invest in a monitor, but that’s a great shout for the future. I will take a look through the links you’ve included. Thanks for that! Something holding me back from Apple is then having to buy everything Apple. I can’t use existing external devices etc... But it’s something I’ll need to read up on. @Goaferhow do you go about your photo editing?
  13. Laptops?

    That’s good advice, thank you!
  14. N-E Book Club (or just a chat about books)

    Hmm yeah you may struggle if you’re not massively in to fantasy, but I would definitely recommend persevering with The Last Wish if you can, and even if you just move on and try Sword of Destiny, which I thought was incredible. Unlike the 6 other books they’re collections of short stores (as you may know) and easier to dip in and out of than the others. The full story books that I’m on now are a bit harder going, but there are great characters and I enjoy the world.
  15. Laptops?

    @HappenstanceYeah I’m not currently thinking of getting into video or any other sort of content creating. Really I’m thinking I’d like to finally do something with my photography and make it more than just a hobby. So I’ll be looking into new hardware, software and creating a new website. Honestly I’m really not very techy, so this will probably take some researching. @Will I imagine the new MacBook Pro will be pricey, when do they currently drop and how often do new models come out? Could I potentially look at an older model?
  16. N-E Book Club (or just a chat about books)

    Currently reading The Witcher saga and really enjoying it. The Last Wish. 4/5 Season of Storms. 3/5 Sword of Destiny. 5/5 And coming towards the end of Blood of Elves at the moment. I’m also interested in reading His Dark Materials. The TV series is absolutely fantastic, it’s a great world.
  17. Laptops?

    I couldn’t think of a better people to ask for advise on this and low and behold there’s been a thread started recently. Can anyone recommend a laptop that would suit me well for photography? Anyone recently looked into this sort thing or bought something they would recommend? running photo editing software, great true colour display and screen, good processor/RAM, number of ports, weight... Am I destined to buy into Apple? Are there good alternatives? Ideally I don’t want to spend a lot of money, but if it’s an investment and will last me a long time as @Will was saying, that would ease things. And wouldn’t be made to feel that I should be replacing it with each subsequent model released. Also, In which case would a refurbished model be worth looking at? Any help or advice would be massively appreciated!
  18. E.X.C.I.T.E.D.!! Will Samuel L Jackson feature in this though? Surely you'd have to think he would from time to time/a lot!... I know it can feature on Shield Agents going off and dealing with plenty of Marvel characters not big enough to carry their own solo movie, but still. Also get Cobie Smulders on board please!... Thanks!!
  19. Resident Evil 5

    http://www.jeux-france.com/news21036_resident-evil-5-une-image-de-plus.html The Story (so far...) The hero of the play will be indeed Chris Redfield. The history takes seat 10 years after the incident of Raccoon in first Resident Evil, Chris Redfield, in the past member of the S.T.A.R.S. (which does not exist any more), works for an organization called BSAA, and will have the role of inquiring into a new business in the desert, but the objective remains very vague for him. According to the producer of the play, Jun Takeuchi, this fifth episode of the series should learn some to us more on the mysteries from Resident Evil 4. The gameplay of Resident Evil 5 should be inspired besides largely by Resident Evil 4 with some additional improvements of course, the light and the darkness will take an important place in the play, Chris will have for example to adapt its sight when it returns in a dark part, or the opposite, it will be dazzled by the sun when it leaves outside. This time, the enemies are neither of the zombies nor of Los Ganados, but of the more intelligent semi-human creatures. A new trailer card of the play will be diffused soon and should include elements of gameplay which will show the differences compared to Resident Evil 4. Full Trailer http://www.gametrailers.com/player/22801.html Other info... - RE4 over the shoulder aiming returns (obviously). - Female character shown! This has got to be Sherry right?! She certainly has the look of William Birkin! - RE5's equivalent 'Dr Salvador' can be seen wearing a sack over it's head and wielding a giant axe. - Villagers use grappling hooks to climb up this time, or could the environments be very interactive/destructable and the villagers are actually pulling the level down to get to you? - Chris (like Leon) wears an ear-piece in Resi 5, however it is much more obvious this time round, suggesting it could play a greater part... Whilst it could simply be for radio communication like Leon... Perhaps Resi 5 takes it one step further and you can call in back-up assistance that will fight alongside you (maybe other known characters such as Jill, Claire, Barry, or just other soldiers) or perhaps even call in an airstrike and such... for when the battles really heat up! This game looks simply awesome!! The new concept of the light affecting your vision, (meaning you have to re-adjust) is a nice one! It could leave you very open to attacks if you suddenly step out into the midday sun and have you eyesight dazzled! So I guess you'll have to think carefully about the approach you take. I'm guessing these enemies which are 'neither zombies or Los Ganados' are the result of Weskers continued research on from Resi 4. Hopefully there will be a Wesker vs. Chris showdown!! though I can't really see it ever being the end for Wesker! Anyways... discuss...
