  1. HoS is relatively short but B&W is another 30-40 hours. Totally worth it though and depending on how long it's been since you played the main game, with the upgraded visuals and mechanics, it'll feel more like a sequel. Yes, HoS integrated in to the main game if you have it installed and you can start it very early if you so wish. A quest appears in your log marked as HoS and you can go off and do that if you like if you are high enough level. It does have some dialogue changes and stuff if you do it before the end but nothing to worry about. It takes place in Novigrad and Oxenfurt so you can still do other side quests and stuff from the main game if you like. B&W likewise appears quite early as a quest you can go off and do but it takes you to a completely new area and definitely works better as a post game adventure. Everything is very clearly signposted as DLC quests so they can just sit there until you're ready.
  2. Yep, it's the whole package. ...and it's the perfect time to get on the case with the DLC. Hearts of Stone in particular is just a perfect 10-15 hours revisit back to the world. Blood & Wine is no slouch either and is an entirely new area so feels different enough after spending so long in the main areas.
  3. Update has cross-save, could you not just pick up on Steam where you left off on XB? I'm assuming it will work on historical saves, not just new ones? They said it works the same as Cyberpunk so maybe someone else can confirm.
  4. Not a huge amount revealed there. 4K/60 and RT modes of course, photo mode and some 'improved gameplay'. All looks very nice and for a free update on a nearly 8 year old game, can't complain. Any excuse to play it again and this will likely be the best the console versions will ever be so yeah, roll on 14th.
  5. Fired this up on Xbox SX yesterday as I was curious as to my progress on the last plyathrough that I left about a year ago and oh man, the music kicks in, the atmosphere, the scenery, everything, it's like coming home. Nothing else like it in gaming (....except maybe Skyrim). I'm going to start again aren't I?
  6. Just had to go and get myself some petrol in the next village so I could blast the bastard in the car for a few miles. The bassline for Flat Iron gets me right here... /points at nut sack I can't believe 'Machines' is 10 years old!
  7. New Enei album is ridiculous.
  8. Spidey 1 was late 2018, 5 months after God of War. I suspect it’ll be Christmas next year so over 5 years, plus yeah, Insomniac is some kind of magical game dev dimension. Can’t bloody wait either way.
  9. Not watching this trailer, its an instawatch based on the first film and that cast.
  10. The recentish Spurrier 12 issue run back under Vertigo was actually really good, felt like old school Vertigo JC. DC clearly want to just keep him in the superhero fold now. Shame but there are so many Hellblazer stories to go back to. Many of them I haven’t read since original publication.
  11. 'Damn Them All' from Boom Studios was good fun but is clearly just the Hellblazer stories Simon Spurrier never got a chance to tell in the original run. It's so on the nose that I wouldn't be surprised if DC slap a lawsuit on it. Doesn't diminish it's quality though, very enjoyable demons in seedy gangland London nonsense.
  12. Greatest comedy/sitcom scene of all time of you ask me. Just beautiful. if things get stressful at work I often start with the ‘loads and loads, and loads and loads’. Most of the 1990s babies in the office haven’t got a fucking clue and think I’m having a breakdown. Which I kind of am.
  13. Watched every episode with my 9 year old, likes marvel stuff but not a massive fan or anything and he’s loved all of it. He was laughing like a drain throughout the whole of the last episode and ended on “man, that was siiiiiiiick!”, he thought it was brilliant. He really wants to watch the old Daredevil show now. Erm, nope. I loved it too. All of it.
  14. How many episodes is this ? Been waiting to binge it as I find the 30 minute episodes so unsatisfying.
  15. Schedule shenanigans.... tl;dr ‘Blade’ September 6, 2024 ‘Deadpool 3’ November 8, 2024 ‘Fantastic Four’ February 14, 2025 ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ May 5, 2026
  16. The 2 episodes we watched were abominable. The nonchalance with which Tennant let the woman take the thumb drive was a believability red flag and from there it just went downhill. Tucci should be ashamed of himself. His mate from the prison was supposed to be some serial killer and rapist but had a cuddly stand-up comedian persona. Utter dog shit.
  17. Bull was good but couldn’t help comparing it to Dead Man’s Shoes for most of it. Unfortunately not much holds a candle to that masterpiece. Definitely worth 90 mins of your time though, Maskell is always very watchable.
  18. Apparently co-produced with Marta Salogni. Never heard of her but then I am an old man with very little knowledge of modern music.
  19. There's a snippet at about 1:30 here with what sounds like a half-baked rerun of Precious. It's played again right at the end. https://fb.watch/fXS1JOL8nv/
  20. Part of me would love to go see them one final time but the idea of the cost (it's easily £500 for the day), the faff, the massive stadium, the shit drumming, I think I'll just let the memories of World Violation and Devotional live on in my head. Glad they're still managing to coin it in though, they've worked hard for it. The clips they just played at the press conference didn't really inspire so no doubt the album will be another moderate disappointment with a couple standouts and yeah, Corbijn has been phoning it in for years and that logo really does look proper shit.
  21. Legends mode is absolutely bananas as a piece of free DLC. Been hammering it for the last week or so and it's ridiculous fun. Great breadth of classes and play styles and focussing on the spooky demonic side of the games story which they only touch on briefly in the main game. I only meant to give it a quick go before I tackled the Iki Island DLC but that hasn't had a look in. The combat system totally comes into it's own. As a complete package, I think this is my favourite of the Sony Exclusives. It's just endless multiplayer content really for a fraction of what the looter shooter publishers would be skinning me for. There are no seasons or skins or whatever and whilst there is no ongoing support, so it does have a finite shelf life, my encroaching middle age and need for more sleep and less late gaming means I can jump on here and there and I'll never feel like I've got to keep up with anything.
  22. I thought JJ Abrams had something in dev with HBO? Or has that been ditched? EDIT - let me just Google that for myself. Abrams out, Reeves in. https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a41255529/jj-abrams-constantine-show-axed-keanu-reeves-sequel-movie-announced/
  23. It was all produced by MJ. Like I say, it was the only one out of 12 or so images that produced a recognisable ‘Monty’ I then ran that eighth one through the ‘Remaster’ option which adds the —test and —creative prompts and I got the final version. Seems it was pure luck though as I’ve tried to do it again with a ‘baby Batman’ thing and I just couldn’t get it to pull out a name at all.
  24. Did a Pixar style poster for my son of our dog. Many attempts at getting the name right as it was mixing up 'border terrier' and 'monty' and getting things like 'morrierr' and even 'mqnty' and some with no text at all, got there in the end though and pretty good match (Disney+Pixar style movie poster of border terrier called monty + Pixar animated movie poster, unreal engine, Cinematic lighting, 3D graphics rendering, Ambient Occlusion,) Actual dog
