  1. With respect to control the vanilla Version from epic didn’t work properly for me. Even after trying the fixes in the video above. Would run but saves didn’t work/restore when I came back to it. Fortunately I have a copy of control ultimate edition from gog (which was also free) and it works without issue via heroic. Just needed to toggle the proton version away from and then back to ‘experimental’ in the heroic settings. Once that was done the correct proton version was picked up and it’s run great ever since. Performance felt a tiny bit better than the standard version too (though maybe I was imagining that). So if you have the choice maybe try the ultimate version.
  2. Ps4 Dual Shock controller here. Auto-maps no problem. I still get the Microsoft Pad prompts playing PC games. But I know 'A' translates to 'X' on the dual shock etc. so its a non issue.
  3. I agree about the unrealistic physics. I find turning the ball trail on in the option helps with tracking where it is - as it can whiz about a bit. It has exploding heads though. And the occult. And a great sound track. It’s very reminiscent of Devil Crush on the pc engine in tone which is possibly the retro game I return to most.
  4. Just a heads up that the excellent Demons Tilt is free at the moment on the Epic Store just in case anyone has missed it: https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/demons-tilt
  5. Strike, jump on and rummage through furniture like some sort of antisocial lunatic while in game characters are trying to hold a conversation with me.
  6. What are peoples recommendations for alternate head straps for the quest 2? I’m still using the standard strap, and while it does the job I wouldn’t class it as comfortable. It’s fine for a few songs in beat sabre or a few rounds in Thrill of the Fight. But after 30 mins or so it cuts into my head a bit. Can’t see me wading through the entirety of resident evil 4 with it. Halo style straps look like they would be the most comfortable. But I’m worried they may not be as sturdy as the goggles style when I’m ducking and weaving to avoid punches. I’d appreciate impressions of alternate straps. Both positive and negative are equally useful.
  7. Taking the offending capacitor out of a pre 1.6 isn’t difficult. No soldering skills or anything required.You can just remove it from the board by literally snipping it off, and that’s it you’re protected from leaks. No remedial work/replacement required - it will still work after its removal. So if the model you are looking at still has a capacitor which is yet to leak you should be fine.
  8. Very shakey first half. But we’ve come out with intent into the second. 🙂
  9. I've got a sealed PAL copy of Mickeys Speedway USA for N64 (Rare's best N64 title). Do you think I can swap it for a ticket to the edge of space?
  10. I remember the enemies in this being bullet sponges - but that video really brought it home. I also remember expecting just about everything that wasn’t an enemy to explode when I shot it. Great game. The unskippable cutscenes were painful though.
  11. I look at this picture and all I can think is "Potential Energy". I hope you got one of these for display with your console *Edit: @Mr Do 71 beat me to it.
  12. Castlevania: Lords of shadow looks pretty great on the series x and, as with everything else I’ve tried, loads in frighteningly quickly. Which is great because I now don’t have to sit there and wait in anticipation of Patrick Stewart’s worst ever performance every time I load a level. At least he’s in fine company though as Robert Carlisle also delivers the nadir of his career. Gameplay is as janky as ever. Soundtrack is still utterly epic to the point where it makes me forgive everything. What a clusterfuck of a game it is. I love it. First serious let down - Binary Domain isn’t back compatible. Next up 50 cent: Blood on the Sand.
