  1. Bump as Panzer Dragoon Remake is currently £2 (!) on PSN: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/games/panzer-dragoon-remake/
  2. Exactly the same for me here after the update installed and I’m also having to reinstall.
  3. A little update, the download took ages and has only just finished. The PS5 did go into rest mode once when I was in a meeting so was maybe off for about an hour tops. I'd estimate that, for whatever reason, the in-game update took about 2 and a half hours and my internet connection is normally pretty fast (I've just done a speed test and got 81.50 Mb/s). Just be prepared for music rally if your first experience is anything like mine!
  4. I've had quick play over lunch. I'm not sure this will be the same for the digital editions but it has a very slow in-game update. The disc was fully copied over and I checked the game was up to date. Upon starting the game you set your video and assist settings, it then starts downloading an in-game update. While it's downloading you have three music rally courses you can play and that's it. I played for about 40 minutes and it's maybe downloaded somewhere between a 1/4 and a 1/3 of the update. I've had to leave the game and PS5 on now I've gone back to work so it can hopefully download the rest this afternoon.
  5. My copies arrived from The Game Collection, I've left it installing and will give it a go at lunch assuming it's not blocked until release day or anything silly like that.
  6. I had to return a broken from new controller to them a month or two back that had a faulty touch pad. Royal Mail's tracking show it was delivered to them but the link Sony provided said they were still waiting for it. The whole process took ages (4-5 weeks) and the tracking link they provided was useless, I'm not sure it ever did update to say they received it or, if it did, it was just before they sent it back. I actually received automated emails from the system reminding me to post it weeks after it had already arrived. I'd called Sony support multiple times due to them not having acknowledged receiving it and receiving remember to return the item emails, they seemed to have another view and could confirm they did actually have it but couldn't provide any more details (like an estimate on when I'd get it back). The whole process was a fair bit of hassle but the controller did eventually re-appear (well a replacement did).
  7. I don’t seem to have one that lottery and only got one of everything on my email. @Corranga also seems to be getting two of everything bar the game though.
  8. Mines exactly the same, but if you copy the waybill number and use it on DPDs website you get more info which is possibly more up to date. On the Nintendo tracking link mine says ready to ship/ominously manifested but on the DPD site it’s we have your parcel, it’s on it’s way to local depot and due to be delivered on Friday.
  9. Mine has dispatched from the Nintendo store too. It doesn't seem to be from the hut any more but a company called Arvato UK in Birmingham. It has been sent next day via DPD who are estimated delivery tomorrow despite what the 3-4 day message suggests, you can enter the waybill number on DPD website and see your actual delivery ETA.
  10. I think whoever’s running the Nintendo store has changed in the last few months. The website changed and is more inline with the general branding of Nintendo’s other websites and you can’t cancel orders without contacting them now. I think the store accounts and Nintendo accounts got merged too around the time the website changed. My last order from them came in a fancier branded packaging, it looked like a normal cardboard game sized box on the outside but when you ripped it open it there was a full colour printed picture of Mario on the inside. I think it might actually be in-house or much closer to that now than when the hut group ran it.
  11. I'm not playing at the moment but from memory the options were under the data settings of general options I think. I accessed them from the in game pause menu. Everest area was just covered Iow res white snow with them off, lots more rock detail with the settings on.
  12. It's probably already been mentioned but make sure you turn the high resolution texture streaming and photogrammetry on in the options. I'd forgotten about it and wondered why the Everest flight looked crap, it was a night and day difference with it on!
  13. I think think that looked surprisingly ok. I wouldn't pay anywhere near £250 for it and a few of the games looked a bit ropey but I was pretty impressed by that video.
  14. I’ve had success with removing yellowing just using sunlight and no retro brite chemicals needs at all. I’ve just left stuff on a sunny window sill in our conservatory for a while and seem significant improvement to a super famicom and a few controllers. I’d recommend trying sunlight only before breaking out the chemicals.
  15. Thanks both moosegrinder and dekay. I hadn’t been in contact with them but will drop them an email about the tracking number not working so at least that’s logged.
  16. Has anybody that ordered Scott Pilgrim physical for switch received their copy yet? I received an email with a tracking number three weeks ago now and the tracking numbers still not working and there’s no sign of the game?
  17. You might be able to find a list of PAL optimised games somewhere online, anything that's not been pre-optimised for PAL will run better (i.e. as the developers intended) at the 60hz setting. I've mainly used my Super NT for NTSC games, bar the odd PAL game I've ran at 60hz anyway so not really had that many PAL related issues.
  18. If by flicker you mean the pixels are shimmering a bit you need to enable horizontal interpolation in the video settings, this should remove shimmering with left-to-right movement.
  19. Pointless trailer but both the cars (Aston Martin and a Land Rover)were from (originally) British manufacturers... British Isles location confirmed? ;) Though both cars seem to be left hand drive models and "solar crown" doesn't really fit with British weather so it's probably nothing, I just thought the choice of cars was a bit odd. :)
  20. Double check what the actual amazon basket says but if you are buying from amazon direct (and not a marketplace seller) then they normally charge all duties up front. I’m pretty sure it normally says something along the lines of “includes fees and import duty deposit”. I’ve bought a few things from amazon uk and Amazon japan and never had anything extra to pay, though I haven’t bought anything this year.
  21. Apologies if this is the wrong thread to post it (as you have to buy a magazine) but this months White Dwarf magazine comes with a Steam code for 12 free Warhammer games. The magazines in shops now and the 12 games are: Warhammer Vermintide Warhammer 40k Space Marine Warhammer 40k Dawn of War Total War Warhammer Warhammer Underworlds Online Warhammer Quest Warhammer Quest 2 The End Times Talisman Digital Edition Adeptus Titanicus Dominus Warhammer 40k Sanctus Reach Warhammer 40k Aramageddon Da Orks Warhammer 40k Space Wolf More info here: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2021/03/10/get-12-free-warhammer-pc-games-with-white-dwarf-462/
  22. Yeah, delivered this morning by royal mail, just left in my vestibule no signature required.
  23. My Nintendo UK Store order arrived about 30 minutes ago.
  24. For balance I ordered mine from the Official Nintendo Store and it IS out for delivery today according to the Royal Mail tracking. I received a dispatch email from them on Wednesday if that helps anybody work out an ETA on when they will receive theirs.
