  1. I'm pretty close to the end, but the time needed to finish exceeded my attention span. Amazing game and all that but the stutter on PC was tiring and probably contributed to my loss of interest.
  2. I think I'll get this even though I didn't click with OlliOlli. I'm about to do some big time on aeroplanes and might need a break from Arceus. https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2022/feb/08/imillaskate-an-indigenous-bolivian-skateboard-collective-photo-essay?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other This seemed quite on topic, and really cool.
  3. I haven't played many mainline Pokemon games, I saw the credits in let's go Eevee! And did a bit of Shield. I've had much more fun and experience with spin off games. I bought an import copy of Blue back in the day but it wasn't my cup of tea! This one seems really good so far a few hours in, much more the style of game I'm used to in its 3rd person open world style. I'm playing handheld on the switch OLED and I really like the art style. Perhaps the OLED is intensifying the palette but it doesn't seem at all muddy to me. For some reason, the walking up a slope animation really tickles me.
  4. Another one for love the game but struggle with the boss fights. That's not an issue so much but they're so close together and take me so many goes to best them, It stops feeling like Metroid at that point. My thumbs just aren't quick enough!
  5. I agree, I was there for Quake on PC in the 90s, and have revisited it many times and am delighted to play on switch. I've tried to get on with the sequel a few times but could never be bothered after a level or two. I'm not sure how I feel about my Steam install being converted to the new version though because I had the nice mods on there already. I haven't researched getting the old version back but I'm sure it's possible.
  6. 100 runs 75 hours, time to take a break I said. 101 sure let's go! I honestly haven't had the compulsion for years.
  7. I did the final boss after 50-60 runs having been beaten by him 3 or 4 times. I got him with pixels left on my last health bar, which was a massive relief! I still want to play it to unlock more titan blood. The blitz disc is interesting but I just love the magnetic cutter on the fists. Another GOTY vote right here. Playing on switch but own steam also.
  8. My VR Optician lenses just arrived, what a great upgrade. They don't feel like they click on very tightly bit it's not as if I ever whack myself in the face while in VR, on no sir.
  9. 2320 1479 3992 If anyone would like another fairly regular gift giver please add me, I need a new friend for the special research.
  10. Just played a bit of Vader, damn it's fun with the light sabre! Pleasingly performance seems just fine on my 1070.
  11. I wasn't expecting perfection so I'm not too disappointed. Overall it's a cool thingy.
  12. They are lovely! Rez brings back all those DC memories but better than I remember.
  13. Having only tried my rift s, I will say that the blacks are not that black. However after one evening's play I had a great time, but yeah I can see me looking for an oled headset if I really get into it. I'm amazed at the sense of place I had though and the tracking of the touch controllers is really impressive to this vr noob. I went for rift s because I had a pc to power it, it only has one cable and no external base stations. Plus the price, about 2/3 of a Vive here in Australia. I'll have a look at these gamma tweaks and consider an index down the track if I'm spending time with my rift s.
  14. My Rift s is waiting for me at home after work, I've never tried VR but I already own a bunch of games to try. Rez, Tetris, everspace and elite will be the first. My pc has a gtx1070, is that going to be ok for those games in vr? It's still a great card for my 1080p monitor. I'm very hyped to try it out, last time I tried VR was when they had the virtuality machines at the trocadero!
  15. I think I need this thing. Remember Switch year one with all the big games month by month? It's that but little and yellow.
  16. No worries! Thanks to all the regular gift givers and receivers in my friends list
  17. I bought this on switch and have hit the stadium wall. I played Trials HD to death and a bit of evolution too, only just briefly playing fusion. I played of those games with a 360 pad and analogue triggers, do you think that the switch digital triggers are a big disadvantage?
  18. Nice! Also thanks for all the gifts to everyone sending them, I'm trying to keep up with it daily. (Petrolbreath)
  19. I had the misfortune to purchase and therefore play the GameBoy version of Dragon's Lair, it has nothing to do with the proper versions. Really bad platforming, it stank.
  20. Would anyone care to befriend me? I live in Australia so maybe that helps in some way with trading? I'm not sure. 2320 1479 3992 in case. For some reason I settled on Petrolbreath as a name.
  21. I put about 1500 hours into battlefield 3, which sounds like a lot to me now, but it was before I had a kid and I was working pretty nice hours. I think the game that most took me over was Phantasy Star Online, I was a student, had to pay for dial up on the Dreamcast to play online but to hide from my real life issues I obsessed about the game. After I sorted my life out and inevitably drifted away from PSO, I decided never to play a mmorpg ever again, it was just too all consuming.
  22. Great thread! Tron 2.0 had a club called The Progress Bar. I still love that. It took ages to fill up
  23. Inexplicably I have lately been obsessed with Go, now this comes along and so I preordered the Eevee bundle, I'm so excited for that ball. Will it spin stops if I cycle past them on the way to work? The last Pokémon game I bought was Blue, on import back in the day and really didn't get on with it but this looks like it might suit me better. I just wasn't keen on those random battles. I'd love to play it with my son but he's only just about to turn 3 and I should probably wait a couple of years before getting him hooked on games. 42 years old and just getting into Pokémon, could be worse I suppose.
