  1. This could be the first series on Apple TV+ that is genuinely very, very good.
  2. First four episodes were great. The way it was all tied up in the end didn’t really work in a satisfactory way.
  3. Finally got to see the last episode tonight. I did kind of wonder up until this point how they where getting 5 seasons out of this show. I totally get it now, bring it on.
  4. I’ve watched the first 6 episodes and absolutely love this. It’s the closest thing I’ve ever seen that’s reminiscent of Lost but obviously it’s far more ‘adult’. The people behind this did Narcos so clearly they’ve got quite the pedigree.

    Don't Look Up is fantastic. Possibly the best film I've watched this year, watched on the last day of the year.
  6. Took me 8 days to get it all watched. Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. It’s so good I’d put it in the same category as Breaking Bad, Succession, The Wire etc. The tension in those final scenes was off the chart.

    They've moved on to make a Griselda Blanco series for Netflix. She was a big deal in Escobar's time but never featured in the original series for some reason. Narcos is done.
  8. I thought this was ok. Nowhere near as bad as some in this thread have made it out to be. The original film was a classic and it's been downhill ever since. The sequels and 'reboot' are significantly flawed but they are at least watchable to some extent. This new film had a bloated runtime. It could have been made a bit leaner and would have been better for it. Nonetheless it's certainly far from perfect but 2 & 3 were no different.
  9. Thanks for the recommendation. Just started this, it appears to be exactly my kind of thing.
  10. I’m only seeing about 10fps difference between them.
  11. The 128 player conquest maps have been clearly labelled in game as 'Large Conquest' from the start. Presumably 'Conquest' always was going to arrive at some stage.
  12. Two episodes down. Can’t disagree, this is really captivating.
  13. I was contacted by EA to complete a BF2042 survey. Took forever to do and as I appear to be the only person alive that enjoys the game I’m probably not the ideal candidate to provide them with information. I’m on PS5 with cross play turned off so perhaps that has some bearing on my enjoyment of the game.
  14. The bug that prevents me from changing my weapon is still there.
  15. I’ve played a lot of this now (beta / pre release / full release) and I’m enjoying it a lot. Once you get past learning the huge maps and certain weapons that need fixed by the devs it’s actually really good. The diversity of being able to fine tune an operator and / or their weapon was a decent design choice. Getting away from K / D and scoreboards is inspired. Makes it feel like a team game, as in a giant team. There’s a battle to be won and that’s the main thing ultimately. Visually it looks great on PS5. PC version is still completely terrible for me. Never did get acceptable performance for long. It’s now worse and barely loads without a multitude of problems.
  16. Overall this was a bit of a flop. It looked amazing and Lee Pace is always good but it felt like it had been written by someone who learnt their trade on Hollyoaks. I’d be amazed if Apple bankroll this for 8 seasons unless they get new people in to write / run the show.

    I couldn’t agree more. A pile of shite and that final episode was nonsensical rubbish.
  18. I’ve played a lot of this over the last week and ultimately found it hard to stop playing although there are genuine issues. Getting to know the maps makes a huge difference although the 14 mile run at the start of each game of conquest is insane. The operators and the mix & match load outs appeal to me as I’m endlessly experimenting. Then again, that whole system is clearly another EA cash grab. Ultimately you are often better off with a DMR although the PP-29 is shockingly OP and needs nerfed immediately. On both PS5 and PC I often get the same bug in which I can’t change my weapon load out. This happens in every other game. The PC version however has far more severe problems and it’s a badly optimised mess. I’m certainly not playing it on anything apart from console from here on. I guess I’m in for the long haul and it’ll probably be Portal that is the success story.
  19. I have that in my PS5 and it’s certainly a good job. Even so, I’ve just over 1.6 TB to work with and I think I’ll have to get an external SSD for storage purposes at some stage. There’s still a lot of games at over 100gb.
  20. If you don’t manage to get in to a vehicle at the start of conquest it’s kind of mind blowing how far you have to run to actually get to the first control point.
  21. The majority of them are on PC and that version is in a much worse state than console. Dice deciding cross play between PC and console was a good idea is a terrible decision. I’ve mostly played on PC and when I logged into the PS5 version for the first time last night it carried all my progress over. I was very pleased by that but every time I tried to turn off cross play the game failed to load.
  22. Most likely. Buying a disc based game in Tesco is time consuming so I never picked it up. I’d probably take if for the same price digitally to be fair though.
  23. This is £25 in Tesco. Saw it this morning and according to HotUKDeals it’s a nationwide offer.
  24. Having read through the BF sub reddit it appears that the PC version is a disaster. Even people with the highest of high end rigs are getting poor frame rates. I’m happier now that I know everyone is also screwed and I can’t blame my set up on the many problems. As for hovercrafts I’ve also been baffled as to why / how they’re driving up the side of buildings. I’ve saw trees flying about a map as well. I actually do like the game although I liked BFV as well so clearly I have no taste.
  25. I've turned all my settings either to off or low. It's the only way I can slightly compensate for what I presume is lag. This isn't really a surprise but this game needs a patch or 10.
