  1. I notice some people are putting full solutions in the spoilers, some are leaving the Wordle itself off their lists… is there any sort of a consensus on what we should be doing best practice wise?


    I’d been putting full solutions previously as I was personally only looking after completing them, but happy to fall in line if people would rather they weren’t there to accidentally see.

  2. Just binged this over a couple of days. Took a little while to warm up (I also don’t care about the kids really) but I was back in by the end.


    As a kid I found Terry Silver disturbingly psychotic in Part III and he didn’t disappoint here. 


    Gotta be a Mike Barne’s return surely?

    Not sure if they have announced anything but I kinda hope season 5 is the last though.



    I could see a plot something like LaRusso vs Silver build up where Silver comes out on top bringing Barnes back while Johnny goes off to sort out Miguel.

    Then some sort of a Kreese/Johnny/Robby redemption towards the end to close off the daddy issues narratives to claim back Cobra Kai.

    Yeah, I've seen that, i just wouldn't class it as hard mode personally. But I can see the logic for those who simply want to guess within the six tries as opposed to me wanting to guess with the least number of tries.

    Fair enough :) 


    Re: Two tries with random words being inefficient... I'm not sure I agree on that. Getting the word in try 1 or 2 is basically just potluck, so 3+ is where actual planning/strategy could come in. I think if you spend the first two goes covering 10 different letters you are likely to be much better set for a 3rd try attempt at the actual word than getting fixated on perhaps one letter you get right and iterating. I'd argue that it is probably more efficient to get a fast solution that way (and perhaps why covering that off is called 'hard mode'). 


    There is also every chance we are way overthinking a simple daily puzzle game.

  4. For 2021 completeness, a quick wrap up...


    23. Lego Jurassic World (XB1) - More Lego game fun, one of the more polished ones. - 7/10


    24. Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (XB1) - The newest of the Batman games but actually isn't really a Batman game and more a DC/Justice League game, my son loved it - 7/10


    25. Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes  (XB1) - Despite now being 10 years old this held up surprisingly well - 7/10


    26. Paw Patrol: Adventure Bay  (XB1) - Very accessible 3D platformer. My son did it basically solo in about 3 hours. - 7/10


    It has certainly been a year of Lego games in this house! But it's been a lot of fun to share gaming with my son, and after one year since getting his controller he is genuinely becoming a little gamer (in moderation!). He is now playing, you guessed it, Lego DC Super Villains and still having fun. We are considering a Switch for him later in the year but are slightly mindful that he can get a bit obsessive over it and it'll be harder to police/easier to ignore so we'll see.


    As for my own gaming in 2021... things slowed up a lot for me in the last quarter of the year with work/family stuff getting in the way of my free time (alongside a hefty MCU catch-up) but looking at my list I got through more than I thought. My GOTY is definitely Horizon Zero Dawn. I pumped 80+ hours into that and loved all of it, I am day one on the sequel.


    I'm currently about half way through The Last of Us: Part 2 which will probably be my first 2022 completion.


    Happy 2022 gaming all! :)

  5. Apologies, I've not trawled the thread to avoid anything with a whiff of spoiler, but was wondering how this is stacking up against Halo 5: Guardians (campaign wise)?


    I absolutely hated Guardians to the point of it sucking any joy out of the prospect of this new one, but I'm really hoping they have turned it around as there was a time where for a couple of years Halo was probably my most played game/series.

  6. Agreed. As I said for me in performance mode it was rock solid 60, but with the full ray-tracing mode on 30 was more of an aspiration than a reality a lot of the time.

  7. No water flickering, dropped frames (or at least as far as I could tell in performance mode) or crashes on my PS5 either.


    Only bug I had the entire play though was a weapon I needed falling behind a piece of scenery and being unreachable. It does seem a bit luck of the draw though as I know some have had some issues (but less than PC based on comments here).
