  1. That doesn’t ring any bells, but that does sound weird.
  2. I remember Edge closing down but for the life of me have no recollection of how I found this place.
  3. If it’s what I think it is then I was considering doing that. Wish I had now.
  4. Really disappointed in this and that comes from someone who loved 5, well apart from the drug parts. Combat is ruined by having different ammo types for different enemies and the helicopter can just do one. Proper bullet sponges and unless my rocket backpack is ready it's pointless trying to shoot them down. I did magically snipe one but have lost countless rounds trying to take them down. I know there's a rocket launcher somewhere but yet to find one. One other annoyance is that since i started the Shock Therapy Yaran story mission, the good Dr. keeps on phoning me up every time I get into a firefight. Right, that’s it, I’m out. Unless I’m doing something wrong with the combat it’s just not enjoyable. I’ve just had to give up as a quick jaunt to get to a mission was made unplayable after a quick stop to take out a radar base that meant that a helicopter was on me straight away. Eventually after running away i took it out but then another immediately appeared right near me. A lucky snipe meant it went down and so I could then wait for my backpack to recharge so I could take out the radar. Two minutes later two helicopters appeared and it became ridiculous. They’ve really broken the series with this one.
  5. Just had an email to confirm that my backup collection order from Smyths is ready to pick up tomorrow. Thankfully my Amazon order has been snapped up for a friend who want's one for the son's Christmas present.
  6. Maybe they had it down, but it's listed as the 8th now. Some people are also getting dispatch emails from them so lord only knows what's going on.
  7. Good old Amazon, ordered on the 16th of July and not looking like it's going to be here for launch.
  8. Why is the thread title saying it's been delayed again? I haven't seen any news on that.
  9. There is indeed. As for last week's episode, I'm not sure I'd want to live on an estate where everyone has an opinion about your house and willing to tell you about it. The fact some of the neighbours actually sorted out the garden was one of the best examples of middle class passive aggression I've seen in a while.
  10. So does this have everything that the physical Directors cut contains? If so that's a great upgrade price.
  11. Literally just installed my 980 with a heatsink 10 minutes ago. It's a piece of cake to put on and I bought mine from scan for £9.99. https://www.scan.co.uk/products/xclio-sp5hs-m2-pro-m2-2280-heat-sink-coolig-kit-with-thermal-pads-and-screw-driver-pc-ps5-black?utm_source=hotukdeals.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=hotukdeals It doesn't come with any instructions but this image will help out with attaching it. For the sake of £9.99 I thought it was worth ensuring that the drive doesn't get too hot.
  12. Bollocks, this was going to be my Christmas game.
  13. Good to see support for internal SSDs but was hoping for VRR to be included as well. Time to hunt down a good 1TB drive then.
  14. I'm still hoping there's a big os update soon that fixes the rest mode issue. I've got back into Returnal after giving up on it at launch and had my first system crash in a long time after putting the game into rest mode. Thankfully it was at the beginning of a run but the PS5 having to action a rebuild and telling me that I hadn't turned off the machine is plain annoying.
  15. It was a great, if as usual, very scripted episode but the whole xenophobic anti-Chinese section at the end was just not necessary. Really left a bad taste.
  16. I'm really enjoying Omno in between playing through chapters of Last Stop. It really is a nice chilled out game in the Journey mode but I do have a couple of criticisms of it. The platforming on some jumps can be a bit hit and miss, but nothing too annoying. Also, I was playing through each level to 100% it and the game does tell you if you try to leave an area without seeing and grabbing every collectable. However, midway through the game I solved a puzzle and was instantly transported to the ext level with no warning. Nothing gamebreaking though. I love Journey so this is right up my street.
  17. Just checked that this evening as a retailer sent out an email with that price and I though they were taking the piss. Checked a couple of other sites and yes that’s the going rate. Absolute madness and far too expensive.
  18. I don't know if anyone is still after the joy-cons but Amazon currently have them back in stock. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08WWFBBJQ/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  19. How much is it to grade a game? I've always wondered what the difference between a 9.4 and 9.5 is say.
  20. My god that's shocking! You mean Bordersdown is still going?
  21. I thought I'd finally finish playing through Mass Effect Andromeda after completing ME Legendary. I lasted about five minutes of actual gaming before the 30 fps was annoying. I really do feel I've been spoiled by able to play so many older games in 60 now.
  22. I seem to remember finishing Fable 3 really quickly, as if it was only half a game. As for which is the best, Fable 2 for me.
  23. Do you get an image? If so it's simply a case of going to the general/display settings and changing the output to 1080.
  24. That did stick out for me, as did the whole concept of As for the film, it was enjoyable. Not essential and Black Widow has never been the best character but the addition of Florence Pugh made it worth a watch.
  25. Thanks for that, just ordered a Black and White one for collection from my local Smyths. I'm so weak.
