  1. Not having any PS4 VR backward compatibility would be a massive own goal I think (that doesn’t mean it won’t happen). When there’s such a large library of titles, having at least some of them patched for PS5 would help with adoption I would have thought. 

  2. I started this a couple of days ago for the first time and I’m enjoying it so far. Just did my first ‘proper’ boss, which took a reasonably large number of attempts, par for the course with me and Souls games. 
     

    I love that this is Souls but quicker. I’m slowly getting the hang of the systems. I also like how all the ‘interface’ (menus, ‘bonfires’, gourds etc) is pretty much the same in all the soulsbournes, like it’s a house style or something. 

  3. I’ve just done the £10 upgrade from my digital version of U4 (which now makes this the 3rd time I’ve bought this). At the distance I’m sat from the TV I couldn’t tell the difference between Fidelity and Performance, so I’m enjoying blasting through in silky smooth 60fps (my TV doesn’t do 120). 
     

    This means I now have a disc copy of Lost Legacy that I no longer need. If anyone wants it I’m happy to post it anywhere in the UK. It’s a US disc so I don’t know if the upgrade path will work on a UK PSN account, but worst case it’s a free copy of what is an amazing PS4 game. PM me if you want it.

    Here’s mine. Fortnite is all from the boy who uses my PSN ID to play it. I’m pretty happy with the rest of my top 5 though. It annoys me slightly that when they update a title it overwrites what was there before, I’ve never played and don’t own the DC of GoT, so it shouldn’t show there I don’t think. 
     

    Returnal defo GOTY for me. Demon’s is only in first place for time as I did a second play-through while I was isolating. 

  5. Agree with all the above. I think if you haven’t played them before, then going through them all in order really helps the emotional story beats in 4 hit harder. I was so invested in Nate’s relationships by 4 that it meant a lot more to me.
     

    Lost Legacy is a victory lap/love letter to the series which basically takes all the best bits and puts them in a perfectly paced adventure to see the games off in incredible style. 

  6. Watched Don’t look up yesterday. I thought it was really good but my word is it depressing. Not the thing to watch on Jan 1st. Some spoiler thoughts that I don’t think have been mentioned yet. 
     

    Spoiler

    I thought an alternative way to end it would have been for China or Russia to successfully pull off a deflection mission, resulting in a lot of the US population continuing to call the whole thing a hoax, and the president using it to stoke up tension over lost mineral revenue. I do agree that the way the plot works now is very US-centric and pretty much discounts any other nations. 
     

    The scene at the rally where the crowd see the comet for the first time and then immediately turn against the president’s son didn’t ring true for me, I think we’ve seen enough in the last few years to know that when people are entrenched in their ways then facts aren’t going to help.

     

    I did like the little sub-plot of shovels, and one shot with a store-window sign saying “shovels only $599.99”. Brought back memories of toilet roll and hand sanitiser, I wonder if that was a pre or post-pandemic addition?

     

    It just depressed me thoroughly as I could see that this is what would happen for real, although probably even worse in terms of out and out mayhem. I struggle to say I enjoyed it, but I do think it is a very good film.

     

  7. There’s a shot in the film that

    Spoiler

    makes it look like the Heighliner operates a bit like a gate. When the Reverend Mother’s ship arrives you can see through the middle of the massive ship and it shows what looks like a different planet at the other end, almost as if the smaller ship enters one end and exits the other in a different part of space.

    I’ve only read the first book so I don’t know if this aligns with or goes against how it’s described on paper?

  8. I’ve watched all 3 episodes this week while I’ve been in isolation. As fan-service it’s remarkable and a wonderful archive, but as a piece of film-making I find it really frustrating. There’s a 2-3 hour epic documentary in here that would have been amazing if it had been edited bit more I think. As it is there is a lot of meandering and not much happening, which is great for fans but I thought 2 hours of it in the first episode was probably a bit much.
     

    But then Paul McCartney starts playing Let it Be and it’s magical. 

  9. For me my favourite was Brotherhood because it took everything in AC2 and refined it massively. I know you haven’t played it but I definitely see that as a main game in itself which you haven’t included in either option in the poll. That was before they all became a bit too bloated in my opinion probably after Black Flag? No doubt everyone’s opinion will be a bit different. 

  10. Well it was another disappointing day in the all-important 16th vs 17th League One battle as Lincoln hosted Accrington Stanley. Typical performance of late for the Imps, dominated the first half, but couldn’t create any clear chances. Accrington (who I know literally nothing about other than that old milk advert joke) got a breakaway goal early in the second half, and then it was all over. We had a small spell very late in the game but I think we could have played all night and never scored. That’s 3 games without scoring now and we still don’t have a clean sheet at home in the league. Doesn’t really seem to be any creative impetus at the moment with a fair few out injured.
