    Why are lots of people who don’t need a PS5 applying for the lottery tickets? This is just continuing the problem for those people who haven’t been able to get one.

    Applying for two tickets is one thing, but there have been a number of comments saying ‘I don’t need a PS5 so if I get one I’ll trade it’. If you don’t need a PS5 leave it for someone who does.

    At the risk of replying to comments that don’t really need replying to...


    If I don’t stick my name in the hat then there’s a million to one chance that’ll help someone from our community. If I do and get picked then then that’s one person from our community that gets one that otherwise wouldn’t have. 

    If no one from this community wants the one I get allocated then I’d just not buy it and it’ll go back into the general pool. I’m FAR too lazy to profiteer from it, even if I had no moral objections to that (which I do). 

  2. GamePass will definitely reduce the number of games I buy.

    If there’s something I really want to play then I won’t hesitate to buy it and in the past I’d have generally not hesitated to buy stuff I just quite fancied playing too.


    However there’s a ton of stuff I quite fancy playing on GamePass for ‘free’ so I’ll just play those instead. 

  3. Skyward Sword completely passed me by when it first came out (I must have been in one of my not into games periods), but jesus that looks fucking terrible! 

    If I didn’t know better I could believe it was some dodgy Linux rip off of a real Zelda game, like Tux Kart was a Mario Kart rip off. 

  4. Dunno if it makes any difference or not, but I got the Digital Foundry Deals tweet notification on my phone and after seeing the Amazon Smile thing mentioned on here earlier and quickly typed smile.amazon.co.uk into the address bar. I then just added the PS5 to my basket and bought as I would any ‘normal’ item. No errors or anything. Just super smooth. 

  5. I’ve played a few times over the last couple of years, but never for prolonged periods so I’d say I have a bit of experience, enough to generally hold my own.

    I’ve played through LMoP but the rest was home-brew with maybe a sprinkling of ideas from Adventurers League modules, so I’m happy to play anything. I actually own all the campaign books but I made a conscious decision to do no more than flick through them and look at the pictures.

    Very unlikely. MHGU is not available with the vouchers so I'd expect the same for Rise.

    List of games in the £84 offer


    You also get 420 Gold coins for buying the voucher (£4.20 future discount). 

    Cheers guys. Ended up getting the vouchers and using the other for Mario 3D All Stars. 

  7. I do this quite a lot. Over the last couple of years or so I’ve had 2 Switches, 2 Switch Lites, 2 Xbox One Xs and it’s been the same to varying degrees for as long I can remember. 

    I don’t do it because I need the money or to replace what I have with something else, I’ve just got a strange aversion to owning stuff that I don’t use regularly, sort of like a reverse hoarder. I have absolutely zero sentimental attachment to ‘things’ and if it’s not something I use on a regular basis I want rid of it. I’d rather give stuff away than have it sat around gathering dust. 

    I’m sure it’s cost me a small fortune over the years but better that than being surrounded by things I don’t want being miserable I suppose. Maybe I should invest some of the money re-buying things costs me in therapy instead.

    I’ve heard people are getting stung with import tax this year so for anyway ordering bare that in mind.


    Yeah, there's a link on their homepage asking you to contact them if there's been an import charge and so I don't know if they're offering a refund for that or anything?


  9. As per the thread in the trading folder I decided I didn’t want the Xbox and either of the PS5s (Disk & Digital) I’d ordered for launch. 

    I sold them all at RRP to friends and someone from here. The Rllmuk forumite came and collected it from me. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere I’d say there’s a good chance someone from here would do the same. 

    If not then I’d suggest that you get the buyer to arrange the courier and so if it goes missing then it’s for them to sort out. With regard to any faults then they’ll need go through the manufacturer. 

    If they don’t pay and you can’t find another buyer then a quick trip to CEX will make sure you’re not left out of pocket. 

    Edit - I’d love a disk PS5 right now and so if you can get one then drop me a PM.
