  1. Total noob here. I’m a couple of hours into my first play through and am currently 30-40 mins into a run where I have 2,500 (ish) souls. Is there any way to ‘cash in’ those souls before I get my ass handed to me by a boss? I have met a the merchant guy so I assume I could buy something from him, but I wondered if there’s anything else I could do? I guess that this is the game, risk vs. reward. I feel quite deep into the level and just don’t fancy dying and not being able to get back to retrieve my souls. I know, I’m a baby.
  2. There's so much to appreciate here. I couldn't get past 'edition to the family' though...
  3. I don't see them mentioned around here too much, but I think 1 or 2 folks have them.
  4. If you go to 'My Games & Apps', there is an option to view your full library (or something along those lines). There are then 4 options (for me) which include the Gamepass list and 'Things you own' list and 'Xbox Gold' list. That did it for me.
  5. I tried this last night and agree that it looks great. Can I ask, do you see a huge benefit from 120hz? For me, it is nowhere near as big a jump as from 30 to 60 and I think I'd be hard pushed to tell the difference between 60 and 120 (maybe if they were side by side?). The overall effect though of 4K, fluid and stable framerate, big screen (77") and surround sound made it an almost spiritual experience. It was truly something to behold and moved me more than Gears 5 did for all its bombast. Tetris Effect had a similar effect to Ori, it provokes something deep inside me...
  6. Mine is horizontal (and the PS5 will be too).
  7. I'm in the West Mids and mine came about an hour ago (from Amazon).
  8. Thanks for the link. Judging by the comments in the article (and this pic) I'm going to source a USB hub to use my PSVR on PS5.
  9. Ok, it's happened. John Lewis and Currys have the CX 77" for £3,499. My resistance lasted approximately 30 seconds. Anyone want a C8 77"?
  10. OK, sorted by running as administrator. Guess I'll have 'fun' getting those 20 stars again.
  11. Thanks to a kind forum member, I have just played an hour or so on SM64 PC and it is glorious. It just works and plays so well. I got to 20 power stars and decided to leave it there. I'd been saving in game as I went along and thought I'd just check that progress had saved by closing and reopening the app and lo and behold, no save data. Any suggestions on what I did wrong here? Thanks.
  12. Any chance you could share a reliable link to download a compiled version of the game please?
  13. Yeah, that would soften the blow for sure. I paid £3.5k for my 77" last August (from a rrp of £7k I think). Costco are the ones to watch (I then got a price match from Crampton and Moore). I will just say that 77" gaming can be a little too immersive / big depending on seating distance and game type.
  14. I'm in this exact position. I have the 77" C8 and when the news of HDMI 2.1 (4k@120) was mentioned for XSX and PS5, I had 1st world FOMO of not being able to see the very best that the new consoles can do. From what I'm seeing of these early games, (and more importantly, adjusting expectations based on recent console generations) I suspect that the number of true 4K120 games will be quite limited and mainly the domain of indie titles (which I really enjoy). On that basis, I am more inclined to run in 1080p120 mode for those games and 'suffer' with 4K@60 for the rest.
  15. Just to join in with the high praise for this gem of a game. I have been playing it for a few weeks, usually doing 1 run per sitting. Progress has been steady and I've made it to the 4th (final?) world once. I feel I'm slowly understanding more of the systems and have recently enjoyed trying out some new weapons to surprisingly good effect. I haven't checked for a while, but I must be around 35-40 runs now (my son has done a few of those on my profile). I have no real expectation, but I feel like I'm close to finishing a run, perhaps even this week. Either way, before I do t
