  1. I only ran Leviathan a couple of times back in the day so have no imprinted memories to fall back on. That said with my addled middle aged brain being what it is even if I’d run it as often as VOG it’s been a while so I wouldn’t have any chance of remembering the layout. I still manage to get lost playing Preservation if I’m on my own!
  2. Yes I was getting hopelessly lost last night as some of the bounties and one of the quests require you to go to all the areas of the ship. I had had a few beers to be fair but the absence of a map is going to be an irritation until you learn the area.
  3. Odd I got in fine at 18:30 when the update finished (6.5gb on Steam). Opening mission is very small scale Presage. The Leviathan has a 1580 recommended light level. Not sure where the weekly story mission is going to come in but the quest chain you pick up with the artefact has 51 steps. Pinnacle has gone from Grasps in preparation for the new dungeon on Friday I guess. Mildly annoyed they’ve reduced the full deluxe version of Witch Queen by 25% but the upgrade is still £35 notes. Always the way I decided I’d more than likely bail after a season after the last couple of years but really enjoyed season of the risen so thinking I may hang around for year now… Gone for the season and dungeon pass for now…
  4. The games current F2P model has basically cut the earlier story based campaigns almost completely which makes the game very difficult to join as a newcomer (doesn’t do a great job of introducing the various ritual based mechanics which is about all the FTP content is these days). Whilst the original games main campaign didn’t make a huge amount of sense (they later retrofitted into two different plot cycles which helped) the expansions since The Taken King all actually tell a fairly consistent narrative. The problem is you can’t play anything pre Shadowkeep these days and that would make little sense if you hadn’t played D1 and understood the context. Forsaken was a good jumping on point for newcomers but that’s gone now too. If you are enjoying it however Beyond Light and the latest expansion Witch Queen are both excellent and not too reliant on knowing vast amounts of the backstory to understand who you are and why you are doing things although inevitably some of the nuance will be missed. At the end of the day the game is basically go places, shoot things and get more powerful and everything else is just windowdressing.
  5. Its a bloody great game. Never going to trouble my GOAT list but I did love it at the time and it did Uncharted meets a 3d melee brawler exceptionally well. I bought it for buttons on PC a while back…probably should replay it
  6. You can have a user account on two consoles so I guess it relates to that.
  7. Process seems to be here https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Support/Nintendo-Switch/How-to-Transfer-an-Individual-Resident-to-a-New-Island-Animal-Crossing-New-Horizons--1879834.html
  8. Not really except you get a code to put into Steam to unlock it rather than it just appearing in your library when you buy direct from Steam. Just watch for region on the code being sold
  9. The weekly is Peggle 2 this week. No idea how long it will take to hit 40 orange pegs but it’s a 5 week month this month so you only need 12 weekly’s for the monthly 1k which in practice means you only will need to do 2 of the actual play a game ones assuming you clear the play 3 games and get 3 daily ones.
  10. Yeah pretty much, probably my sense of humour but I quite enjoyed it. The retelling of various myths from by Zeus himself is quite clever in places. Its very incidental to the game itself mind which is a pretty light on the story side.
  11. Immortals is BOTW crossed with AC and is very much it’s own thing but if you like Ubisoft open worlds and Zelda style environmental puzzles it’s essential
  12. Killer Instinct - you get a achievement for a win with every character, one for 3 wins or so and another for a win in survival mode. Turning down the AI is your friend here.
  13. I was with you all the way up to Toby Never has that teen camp preacher line seemed more relevant. Anyway Miles is a cool character but he’s never going to be the real Spider-Man
  14. C/f the recent fury over casting a Black Death in Netflix’s Sandman adaptions. There are plenty of awful geeks too…
  15. Cursed Child opened in 2016 with colour blind casting from the start which is about 4 years before Rowling started making any gender comments so I doubt there’s any direct connection there. I also strongly suspect that when/if they make a movie of Cursed Child (strongly suspect that’s inevitable) it will still make all the money. Especially if they get the original cast. FB was always a spin off which never match the parent franchise and also has been significantly hampered by being pretty rubbish even for die hard fans. Cursed Child is also brilliant fwiw
  16. Curiously despite making a huge amount of fuss about the combat options there is relatively little murder in Shadow, it’s the closest of the reboot trilogy to the original games, large portions of the game are Lara alone navigating an environment. Its still the weakest of the three mind as 2013 basically nailed the what if TR was Uncharted only grittier vibe. Still think they are a great series though, really not sure something as obtuse as the original series puzzling would fly these days.
  17. Wordle 294 3/6 Starter word doing the heavy lifting again
  18. An awful lot like Uncharted. I loved all three (the 2013 reboot being the highlight) but they are very much channelling Drake without the lead characters charm.
  19. Wordle 290 4/6 Took me significantly longer then it should have after guess 3 given there was only one possible word left
  20. My sons account is the same (started collecting reward points about 6 months ago). Might also be relevant he has never had a Gold subscription (always just piggy backed on mine). Redeeming for Game Pass PC still gives a better conversion rate than GPU (if you already have GPU). Not as good as Gold mind
