  1. What's the verdict on this now time has passed? I'm tempted to pick it up to play this weekend. Does it suit a quick 20/30 minute blast on the train?
  2. ..might not work well at selling his skills as a tattoo artist. Sorry mate, didn't realise this was such a serious topic.
  3. I imagine a lot of people who know him as a tattooist probably think it's weird that he isn't known everywhere by the name they definitely all routinely refer to him as in everyday parlance and definitely isn't something that he made up for himself while trying to be cool. "The Revolver Tattoo Rooms were opened in March 2007 by owner and lead artist Dave 'The Pistol' Perry." https://www.bigtattooplanet.com/daveperry I can't think of a single person who I know by a name other than their actual name, and Dave Perry has two alternate names! What a guy. Actually, there's one guy I had to contact for work whose colleague clearly didn't like him and implied that for reasons undisclosed everyone in their organisation referred to him as "pornhub".
  4. Do you think what will be in the controllers will be better? I'd imagine they'll be the same. I'm using my launch day play and charge battery still. It's max charge can be measured in hours, not days now but I haven't replaced it as it doesn't bother me too much, but if it did, it's about £20, quite a lot better than a replacement pad, not least because of the eventual journey to becoming landfill that products that can't be easily broken down end up taking. No company that professes to give a shit about the environment should be putting out products with a non removable battery, Microsoft should have stuck to the old system, imo.
  5. I might get an EA Access sub to play A Way Out. Or I might just buy the game for a tenner in the sale. Does EA Access ever go cheap now? I seem to remember buying a year's sub for about £12 a couple of years back. I'm not sure it's worth an extra ten pounds over the cost of the game #Skinflint.
  6. I bought some pizza flavor Pringles in the USA a couple of years back and was surprised by how much they evoked pizza. Like, you definitely knew what they were getting at.
  7. I believe that if you buy the more expensive version, that a few of those light saber mods and skins are all you get extra too. It makes me wonder if EA demanded something for the purpose of selling a premium version and Respawn did the nearest thing to absolutely nothing that they could manage. Edit: My mistake, there's a digital art book and behind the scenes video too. Still approaching absolutely fuck all, imo.
  8. Looks like I missed this, but the first freebie is 75% off still.
  9. And bear in mind that you'll only need the hardware - all those teams delivering games for Microsoft will be putting them straight onto Gamepass. And your old controllers still work so you won't need extra peripherals that you may have needed to aid your lie that the console would be played by the whole family. They could afford to be the most expensive console because you don't need to buy any games - you effectively get them all for free* *Not for free, unless you're paid up for 100 years thanks to the gamepass/live conversion fun a few months back.
  10. I like it. Like an Apple Time Capsule. I had assumed they'd made it vertical for heat dissipation reasons, I wonder if it runs more efficiently vertically than horizontally.
  11. Yeah, I guess maybe. I don't know the ins and outs and I remember last time that people asserted that the manufacturers needed orders to be placed significantly ahead of manufacturing, so perhaps, yeah. I'd have thought they'd be doing anything to not be the weaker system this time around though.
  12. Well, they'll know exactly what's in the devkit.

    Xbox Game Pass

    Funnily enough, myself and @evilboris were talking about Control being an inevitable Gamepass title. Remedy trying to claw it back is funny, nobody who heard about the original announcement is buying it (or the game). The exclusive dlc is a bit of a shame, I presume that part of the equation for Gamepass is boosting dlc sales.
  14. I mean, he might have more info on this than you, but as noted above, I thought the VR bubble had burst. I'm not aware of much interest/hype around it anymore. I dunno, he's led Xbox to being a real contender, gamepass, large numbers of studios, is popular with fans and seems to like games. I think most would say he's really good for Xbox.
  15. Depends on if the box pass is for new accounts only or not (it probably is).
  16. Which is probably what they were asked to deliver!
  17. In one of the prequels, doesn't Ewan McGregor spend ages slowly melting through a door with his light sabre? It takes him ages. Agree, no Biggie.
  18. Bought this at Sainsbury's at lunchtime with my nectar points. Glad that everyone's already saying it's shit, before I've even played it! If only I'd waited until the end of the day.

    Nintendo Switch

    What do you get on the Japan apps that you don't with the UK one?
  20. Duos is pretty good, I agree. It's even more important to stick together when playing which can be irritating when you are under equipped and are struggling to find equipment but your teammate wants to go engage another pair. Meanwhile you're dual wielding a pair of Mozambiques. Actually, if you could dual wield them, they'd end up being pretty useful!

    Nintendo Switch

    It has been posted on HotUKDeals, after all. If there's any profiteering to be done, people there often cheerfully post that that is what they're doing.

    I also went to Tesco today to pick up some games. I was going to get Link's Awakening and Luigi's Mansion, as there was someone working on the department nearby I asked if they had stock and she looked it up for me, zero stock. She said that they had ONE COPY of Luigi's Mansion yesterday. Perhaps the whole plan is to get nerds in doing their weekly shop hoping to get some cheap games but they only stock one of each and don't list them online. If so... Well played Tesco, well played!
  23. Fuck brexit, etc.

    Maps littered with icons and a screen full of objectives are generally not much fun to play in my opinion. Most open world games aren't much good, imo. Someone called them "shopping list games" when I spoke about it a while back and I think that's about right. It's a chore to navigate to spot A, perform task 5 then go to spot B and do another of task 3 and on and on. It's why most open world games aren't much fun for me. Travelling somewhere for 5 minutes to do a 2 minute objective that relies on AI reacting to your arrival often feels like a shallow experience. ...The actual bit you play when you arrive isn't very exciting. If we had more focus on fun and less on ticking things off, games would have to be designed differently, I assume. If an entire game was a series of ubisofts assaults on strongholds (or whatever they call arriving at a wasteland and killing patroling guards who will call in reinforcements half way through) they'd have to be better. Put those into an open world game and they might be one of the best bits. ...if that's the case, surely the game can't be all that good? That's hidden by loot, ranking up and daily challenges. As noted above, a second job doesn't sound like much fun.
