  1. I thought the animated bloke said it all really. I'll play a bit more later either today or tomorrow, but so far it ain't that great. I think a lot of players thought Cold War was a step back from MW before it, Vanguard feels like a giant leap backwards, pole vaulting even.
  2. I've made a quick 3 minute video on my impressions so far
  3. Should be named Call of Battlefield Open PS5 Beta this weekend. Good luck finding it on the store!
  4. The Matrix Still a great experience 22 years later 5/5
  5. Finally a new track! Looks like he has signed to XL Recordings, so maybe some proper releases will now appear.
  6. Even the Nintendo Switch has a better store than this. Surprising since Sony had a massive head start with online and yet are regressing
  7. First video I've seen of this that makes it look decent. All the other videos made it look a bit janky. Bravo again DF
  8. I suppose you are correct. Being online only has killed the retro possibilities of such a high percentage of games though.
  9. For those of you that have gone through the repair process with Sony (mine is for a controller) how long does it take them to actually say they have "received" it? I checked the Royal Mail tracking for this and it was signed for on the 9th - its the 14th today...I'm assuming when its "Received" here is that someone has taken it off the massive pile of boxes that are stacked up for repairs? Worth a chase-up?
  10. You'll never see it (unless you do online races I suppose) Also as they are adding tracks as they go on, that will fuck up any current in-progress career mode won't it? I.e. you won't race these new tracks
  11. Single Player should mean offline in my book I hope they sort out install sizes on this one - I've just tried to install GT Sport on my PS5 that has 177GB free space and it told me I don't have enough. Fuck that
  12. Probably what broke the R2 button of my controller
  13. Horses for courses, I'm interested in trying the MP beta next week (if Sony can ever get around to sending me a working controller back) but my initial impressions of the alpha was this was a bit tragic. Cold War, as a package, is hardly a shitstain
  14. Cloud Atlas - Blu-Ray Spurred on from the new Matrix trailer I thought I return to this and give it another go. It's impressively made, but in film the constant fliting between sequences doesn't build any kind of suspense or immersion, probably works as a book but not a film 3/5 Star Trek II - The Wrath Of Khan - Blu-ray I'm not a huge Trek fan, but this is the Empire Strikes Back of the Star Trek films. I remember seeing this at the cinema and clearly remember one kid crying on the way out, his dad unable to console him. The film is terribly out of focus though for the most of it. 5/5
  15. The 2nd film in the original trilogy has the best action sequence I've ever seen (from the fight on the stairs all the way up to the end of the highway case). The editing is just spot on. The 3rd one is odd, haven't seen it for a while. A friend of mine thought that one of the captains kept saying "Got to stop those dickers!" and that has stuck with me. How many new Matrix films do you reckon there are going to be? Another trilogy?
  16. I hate the aesthetics of the PS5 console - its the most impractical thing ever constructed when horizonal, as is the location of the disc drive. Also hate for the last Doom game and Returnal, for me buying them (and quickly selling on) and realising (in this order) its shit / won't ever get time to dedicate to it because some goons thought a save+quit = standby mode (when we are supposed to be saving the planet)
  17. Sitting here waiting for Sony to get a finger out of their arse and return a working PS5 controller to me, feel a bit of a fanny not remembering that a PS4 Dual Shock will also work on the machine. It's on charge now awaiting it's glorious return. To be honest I'm not expecting the replaced PS5 controller to outlive the PS4 one, all I reading about on the subject is broken trigger buttons right now.
  18. At least it's shown up on the UK store Still a bit of Japanese text knocking about (over the button graphics) and the tutorial is hilariously bad. Talks about pressing buttons that aren't actually called that whatsoever. Classic Cave.
  19. Phoned up PlayStation "Support" on Monday about my controller. Waited 25 minutes in a queue. Spoke to someone who didn't really know what I was talking about, but they created a case reference for me and emailed it to me, they didn't hang on the phone for me, they requested I gave them the serial number of the Controller via email reply. The serial number is on the back of the controller and starts with G and its really small to see, not even with glasses on and then a magnifying glass could I see it. The only way to read it is to photograph it and zoom in. Ridiculous Emailed them back Monday morning - then nothing for two days. Then chased today, another 20 minute phone call. Good news is they pay the returns label (48Hour Royal Mail), the bad news is the link they sent me to track my return is an insure HTTPS link that Chrome and Edge block - (Starts with https://hardware.support.eu.playstation.com/ ) Shambolic.
  20. Probably not that much in it really, I mean you can look different in the Matrix can't you, so that's what's in the mirror.
  21. Finally watched it - its well made, the sets and era placing are amazing, its well acted all round, and far far too long and aimless up until around the 1hr 40min mark. I swear if he made Dogs today it would be 3 hours long. Tarantino would be better suited to making TV series now, rather than these bloated films. I knew nothing about the film before watching, as others have said it is just his homage to Hollywood of the 60s, that ends up doing an Inglorious Basterds by re-writing history in the context it is set against.
