  1. The Wiki at Fextralife allows you to drill down into every upgrade path for each weapon and see what damage and scaling looks like at each level of reinforcement.
  2. I’d cleared the PS4 version from my hard drive a while ago, so downloaded the PS5 version (and stopped it from downloading the PS4 version again). On start-up I just selected Continue from the menu, and it dropped me in where I last was. I’ve read that it only lets you import your last save, so I’m not sure what would happen if you have multiple games on the go.
  3. XB Deals is the closest I’ve found.
  4. Head Over Heels has been remastered, with completely new artwork. The marketing copy has either run through Google Translate or been written by a 6 year old, so it's unlikely to attract many buyers (even for £3.59). The Immortal has also appeared in the store, describing itself as 'a fan favorite of the old times of Nintendo/mega drive.' No remaster for this one, just a fairly straight looking port.
  5. I popped into my local independent for a copy of Metroid Dread, and came out with a white OLED as well. I’m helping the local economy, and I’m sticking to that excuse.
  6. Minecraft worlds are split up into 16x16 chunks, which are generated the first time you enter them. Your immediate surroundings won’t change with this update, but wander further away and you should start finding some of the new blocks. My wife spent last night digging for copper in her favourite world, so it’s definitely out there.
  7. 1. Two Point Hospital 2. Dead by Daylight 5. Gears of War 7. Dead Rising 8. City of Heroes 10. Resident Evil
  8. I went in that passage the first time I hit the third biome, and almost made the same mistake. If you look up to the right at the dead end you’ll see a hook point, which usually leads up to some Resin. From there you can jump back down to the walkway. It’s really easy to miss
  9. You needed to look up and to the right at the end of that corridor...
  10. I’ll happily admit that I got lucky and defeated him the first time our paths crossed, but (from my limited experience) your best bet is to wait until he unleashes the expanding ring attack and then immediately dash to one side. Otherwise, by the time he starts moving it’s already too late.
  11. I was at the Newcastle gig on the Scarling tour, which again played to no more than about 20 people. If I remember correctly, Jessika invited everyone to join her on stage for a sing along of 'Band Aid Only Covers the Bullet Hole'. I was lucky enough to get tickets to the Jack Off Jill reunion show at the Electric Ballroom about five years ago, which was absolutely packed and probably the best concert I've ever been to. Given that they originally split up without ever having made it to the UK, I'd long ago given up any hope of seeing them live (as had, I suspect, most of the crowd). The closest thing to a successor are probably The Birthday Massacre:
  12. I know it's a bit late, but have a look at coin holder capsules for your tokens (they come in various sizes). If you seal all your remaining tokens up you can just stick a home-made one in another capsule, and as I assume it's for blind drawing from a bag the difference won't be noticeable.
  13. I'll put in a good word for The Outpost in Sheffield. I've ordered a fair bit from them (mostly GW) and have never had any issues. They're definitely worth a look for GW, Privateer or other wargaming stuff.
  14. Ni No Kuni Remastered: Wrath of the White Witch has just dropped to £7.99 from £49.99, valid for the next week.
  15. The Switch version has just popped into today's sale on the e-shop - £8.99/£11.69 for the standard/deluxe editions.
  16. This is cheating a bit, as there used to be a version of this doing the rounds of the clubs 10-15 years ago. The AI came up with something fairly close to what I remember of the original. Pop Will Eat Itself vs Danny Elfman: https://rave.dj/r9i_rdjUEFEm_w
  17. There's definitely something screwy going on with the online service at the moment. I reinstalled the Steam version this morning (had it since launch), but it seems that since crossplay with Epic went live in the latest patch the Steam version has a habit of crashing every 50 minutes or so. Going offline seems to fix things, so it'll hopefully be taken care of by the time to DLC launches on the 20th. Perhaps Epic cloud saves will be sorted out at the same point.
  18. The PC version is down to £12.99 at CDKeys at the moment, which felt like the right time to dive in. It's a nice game to swim around in, and whilst combat seems to involve a lot of flailing around so far it's been entertaining just swimming around seeing the sights. Plus, my 6yo loves eating turtles. And people.
  19. It's worth periodically checking your Startup Apps in System Settings, just to make sure you're not trying to load anything you don't need in the background. The latest Windows update added Skype, and the various game launchers will auto-run given half the chance. I've just joined the new PC club, as it's been eight years since I built my last one (barring graphics card upgrades). The previous machine is still sound as it's got a GTX 1080, but was starting to show its age with games which require a bit more heft from the CPU - AC Odyssey was noticably suffering from freezes and stutter even at 1080p and medium settings. Anyway, I've gone from an i5-3570K with GTX 1080 to a Ryzen 3700X with RTX 2070 SUPER, tucked into a SFF case. The old machine has been donated to my wife for Sims 4 purposes. Everybody wins!
  20. I was 12 in 1990. I don’t have many gaming memories of that year, as my Mum spent most of it in hospital having contracted a horrific flu just before Christmas ‘89. I know I got my C64 somewhere around that time, but can’t be certain when. I may still have been playing games on our BBC B, and if so it’ll have been older stuff like Exile, Spycat, or any of the other Superior Software adventure games. Once the C64 came along I’ll have moved onto Turrican, Golden Axe, Ironman Stewarts Super Off-road Racing, and Lords of Chaos (all 1990 releases).
  21. I’m guessing that you’re thinking of ‘The best... album in the world ever’, as I’m fairly sure that’s where I first picked up on Therapy? as well. Since then they’ve been a constant part of my life, and are up with Wildhearts and Antiproduct for the band I’ve seen live most often (most recently with Terrorvision last year in Halifax). Most of my closest friends are people I got to know through turning up at the same gigs.
  22. If anyone fancies getting into Age of Sigmar, Mortal Realms goes on sale today. My local Smiths had loads of copies of the first issue in stock, which for £2.99 comes with 10 Nighthaunt Chainrasps and 3 Stormcast Sequitors.
  23. So far I’ve picked up Darksiders III for just over a fiver, and Outward for £3.99. Yaga is only £3.99 with the voucher, so I’m tempted by that as well.
  24. Game of the Year A1. Control A2. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night A3. Dragon Quest XI S A4. Code Vein A5. Untitled Goose Game Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. Sekiro - or rather my inability to play it Z2. Ion Fury - offensive jokes against minorities aren't an appropriate hill to die on. Z3. Anthem - Nice graphics, and flying is fun. Pity they forgot to include a game. Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. Control S2. Untitled Goose Game S3. Jedi: Fallen Order Visual Design of the Year V1. Control V2. Resident Evil 2 V3. Untitled Goose Game Writing of the Year W1.

Stardew Valley Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2018 or earlier) X1. Destiny 2 Best game character of the year C1. Dr Darling (Control) C2. The Goose (UGG) C3. Horace (Horace) And the big one: Game of the Decade D1. Bloodborne D2. Control D3. Dark Souls D4.

God of War D10. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
  25. I see your challenge, and reply with my N-Gage with Pandemonium, and Gizmondo with Trailblazer. Not only were the games fairly uninspiring, but in both cases you have legendarily terrible hardware.
