  1. Theres obviously still some lag in Stadia, just look at Digital Foundrys recent writeup on the 3080 of Geforce Now, but its good enough that a lot of people wouldn't notice it or get used to it very quickly. Going from CRTs to LCD almost certainly introduced more lag to gaming at the start of the 360 generation but people accepted that because the pros outweighed the cons. Stadia has its issues, and I doubt Stadia Pro will be around at the end of the year, but hitting buy/claim on a Stadia game and the way it just changes to a play button is still fantastic.
  2. Happy enough with that. I tried to finish more games last year instead of dipping my toe in a load of stuff so I'm not surprised I didn't play a huge amount of games.
  3. I got my 351MP today. Lovely piece of hardware it has to be said. Retro Game Corps have a video up showing how to get setup with 351elec so I'll be doing that before fiddling much more with the machine.

    Well that's as close as I've seen to a good reason to post this.
  5. What in the actual factual fuck is this nonsense? It's selling faster than the PS4 and it'd be doing even better if it wasn't for a worldwide chip shortage. There's some absolutely hysterical stuff being posted in here. And I don't mean hysterical haha I mean hysterical "relating to or suffering from hysteria".
  6. So after yesterdays news its possible that Microsofts lineup from late 2022 through to the end of 2023 includes Forza Motorsport, Starfield, Avowed, Perfect Dark, Contraband, Hellblade 2, Fable, Diablo 4, Overwatch 2 and the next Black Ops. Its probably won't pan out that way but thats a ridiculous list on paper.
  7. I'm a bit confused about Embracer being mentioned here. Their whole strategy seeks to be about releasing a huge amount of games, not just focusing on the AAA stuff, and that includes remasters of stuff like Destroy All Humans and new games in old franchises like Jagged Alliance and Outcast.
  8. Fair enough, it's always Konami podcasters make jokes about regarding links to the Yakuza and stuff so that threw me.
  9. I think you are mixing up Sega and Konami here based on the organised crime reference.
  10. They still can, its only Tuesday afterall.
  11. Steady on, If Activision was capable of making those sort of profits then they'd cost a lot more than $70 billion. It isn't necessarily about recouping the cost anyway. As long as Microsoft can show shareholders that spending $70 billion on Activision was a better investment than leaving the money sitting in their bank accounts then its a positive for them. Pachter did a video on this sort of thing years and years ago when they bought Minecraft.
  12. For what little it's worth I don't think Perfect Dark is going to be a first person game.
  13. Don't think so, IO (who MS were supposedly buying last year) are working on James Bond now.
  14. Guys, this really about battling the Epic Game Store for the number two spot behind Steam.
  15. I really should have an added an "inactive" disclaimer to that question. The lack of first party kid-friendly games is probably the biggest criticism you could make of GamePass as a value proposition at this point. I'm not advocating for a new Crash Bandicoot or Spyro but the teams behind the recent remasters and Crash 4 seem like the best option available to Microsoft now if they want to build up their version of a Ratchet & Clank.
  16. Crash is possibly the biggest kid friendly property they own now right?
  17. Why would they do that? I think it'll be an expanded version of what they are doing with Fallout 76 and Elder Scrolls where Gamepass subscribers get currency or perks regularly. I'll be very curious to see what they do with the annual CoD releases though. Maybe this years game will be the last CoD to get a Playstation release?
  18. I guess someone took that bit about "bar CoD" very personally.
  19. Well, thats one way to get Sekiro on Gamepass.
  20. Wait, this might be real.
  21. Just for the record, I was the one who bought Deaths Door in the January sale and hasn't played it yet. You're all welcome.
  22. Yeah, the relief at finally being able to beat they hydra was quickly replaced by an "oh no" when I realised how much of a step up Elysium was.
  23. How much of that perception of Sony being in a slightly weaker position is based on them having announced less of what they are working on? Microsofts supposed 2023 lineup (Avowed, Perfect Dark, Contraband, Hellblade 2, Fable) looks great compared to Sonys (Spiderman 2) but theres no way that is a complete picture. Studios like Naughty Dog, Santa Monica and Suckerpunch are all supposed to be starting up second or thirds teams so its not unreasonable to think we'll see those studios produce more for the PS5 than they did for the PS4.
  24. I think theres too much flour in that mix. I don't make them often so I'm no expert but I try to follow Brian Turners* (I mean, if you are going Yorkshire you might as well go all the way) recipe/method. He uses equal parts, by volume, of egg, flour and a 50/50 mix of cold water and milk. So if you are using 5 tablespoons of liquid then you should be using five tablespoons of flour. A tablespoon of flour weighs less than 15g, closer to 10 or 11 based on converting old recipes, so you have 15-20g too much flour in that mix. And use a decent jug for mixing. Pyrex, none of that Anchor shite. *I've no idea if he is actually a horror, I liked him on Ready, Steady, Cook.
  25. I'm a little disappointed with Eurogamer giving Moriarty coverage. He seems like an absolutely rotten individual and I don't think his track record with this sort of thing is anything special.
