  1. I'm now also wanting to upgrade and try link my Quest to a PC. Am I right in saying Virtual Desktop only works well if you have a good wi-fi connection? I'm still on standard broadband because fiber is still not available on my street. If so I'm happy to get a link cable but do I need an adaptor to plug it into a PC? Any tips on the best third party cable? Thanks!
  2. Highly recommend Three Identical Strangers to documentary fans. It gets straight to the point and delivers some genuinely heart-wrenching moments.
  3. I'm a football fan but have no idea what's going on in the third tier so it would be a shame to spoil this excellent series.
  4. Sunderland 'Til I Die season 2 is fantastic. Perhaps not quite as watch-through-the-fingers calamitous as the first season
  5. Brilliant news. Still play the first one on Switch.
  6. You're right. Episode 5 and the look on the guy's face in the office. Also

    Let us not forget the sublime Super Monkey Ball on GameCube.
  8. I've been subscribed to PS+ for 2 and a half years and this has got to be the best month yet.
  9. I got a win today but I felt filthy afterwards. I found myself with full shields, full health and a full gas mask inside a chopper. The final circle was over open ground and I just hovered above until the final five offed each other. The very last opponent was driving a truck so it was just a case of biding my time. I knew the chances were high that he had some damage and so it proved to be. The gas gave me a win. Hardly fired a bullet. I've been in the final ten quite a lot where vehicles are just going around in circles playing the odds. As much as I've exploited the loophole myself they need to limit fuel or some such.
  10. There are so many great actors in this that I've never seen in anything else: Kim Howard Nacho Lalo Chuck (though he was in Good Omens but filmed after his exit) Kim's boss (the one that looks like Michael Douglas' cousin) Rainer (The German guy) And more. As a ensemble it's brilliant.
  11. Dark Souls I set myself the goal of finally finishing this game before the end of March and just made it. As much as I loved so much of it the fact it took me around 8 years tells its own story. Started it on PS3 back in the day and I hit a spike around the end of the Undead Burg. I had every intention to go back but never did. The remaster on Switch gave me new impetus but though I started it on release I got bogged down near the Crystal Caves. It wasn't so much that it was hard, I just got side-tracked by other things and found the Duke's Archive followed by Crystal Caves the dullest part of the game. For me this game has brilliant highs - loved Ornstein and Smough, Sen's Fortress, Anor Londo - but other areas were not as compelling overall as those in Demon's Souls or Bloodborne (the only other Soulsbornes I've played. It is testament to the games hold that when I woke up in the cell the second time I did the first section again and could've happily continued... but there are too many other games I want to spend time with. Still, a wonderful life achievement for me that was harder than any Munro I've ever climbed.
  12. I agree with a lot of that. I liked the last third plot-wise but the game had been elongated long before we got there. All the mid-game stuff about going between the rival camps was massively flabby. And thinking back the one thing I absolutely hated was Bloody great game for me though. I think it'll go down as one of the most underappreciated of this era.
  13. I must admit I've used the chopper ruse a couple of times. It is tempting because you can generally get down to the last couple without too much interference. I do think it will be adjusted in time. Giving the choppers limited fuel would be a simple fix.
  14. Good work. I've now had 5 second place finishes on Solos. Need to get the monkey off my back. Is it just me or is the quality of opponent weaker in the morning/lunchtime?
