  1. Way more excited for this than I need to be. It's the only thing giving me the old E3 feels.
  2. Managed to grab a PS5 from Argos thanks to a post in the stock thread yesterday. Gotta say it's a fucking monstrosity of a thing isn't it? It came with a code for Horizon Forbidden West but I've been out of the PlayStation loop since Spider-Man came out. What's essential to get so far, barring what's on PS Plus anyway once it relaunches next month?
  3. Aye, as someone who's been out of the Sony ecosystem for a few years it seems like a bit of a no brainer to go for the second tier once I eventually pick up a PS5. For a few quid on top of what I'd be paying on top of ye olde PS+ anyway, I get a decent taster of PS4/5-era Sony games, some Ubi bits and bobs that feel of a similar level to the EA Play stuff on Game Pass, and a carousel of third party stuff. Admittedly, the third party list looks a bit sparse at the moment, but you'd expect it to expand and move about anyway. And it's not matching Game Pass in my book, but then Sony are market leaders and and all that (as well as being daft Sony again) so you wouldn't expect them to go all out in the same way MS have. Overall it's alright, innit. Not amazing but not too bad.
  4. That's what I'd call very mixed news. Thanks!
  5. Had a mess with this yesterday and did the first chapter, and I'm pretty into it. How easy is it to go back through chapters in this to comb through areas and make sure I've picked up costumes and that? Will I need to start an NG+ at the end or is there some chapter select kind of deal? Same with all the dialogue options - I'll be keen to see how things change about but not necessarily if I have to play the whole thing through again.
  6. Ah piss. Think the writing was on the wall a bit but I hoped if they were going to ditch last gen consoles they'd release current gen versions and keep those updated along with the PC version. I don't know what I'm talking about though and obviously it's more of a job to do that than I think it is, but I'm pretty bummed I'd have to lose my progress and buy a gaming PC to play new Elite stuff when there's surely a sufficiently powerful box just sitting next to my telly.
  7. Disappointed by the move to survival horror, but that's because I'm a coward. I was relieved that the AWE DLC for Control wasn't actually scary. Still, after Control Remedy are very much in my good graces. More than happy to deal with survival horror if it means more Remedy universe stuff.
  8. On a headphone Dolby Atmos tip - how do you make sure all the software is doing what it needs to and game settings aren't overlapping and messing stuff up? Am I supposed to set the audio in, say, FH5 to surround or headphones?
  9. Yeah, nothing has grabbed me in the same way Fez has. It's the one game I wish I could play fresh again, not knowing anything about it, just because there's been nothing since that's quite scratched the same itch.
  10. I remember reading somewhere that it's not really possible anymore due to the stipulations Spotify et al place on app use. Something about not being able to copy, save, or manipulate the music, which extends to integrating the app output with other apps or having it play through the car's speakers etc, and resulting in the app just playing over whatever's going on.
  11. If we're still in inviting everyone mode, hit me up!
  12. Samesies. I want to get into this one. Also reiterating – ItSameCraig.
  13. For all the faff arsing about in this thread about early access, I'm watching that trailer compilation up there and at the end of the FH3 trailer it offers players early access four days before release if they pre-order the Ultimate Edition. That was six years ago.
  14. Anyone feel free to add me. Missed out on FH4 as the UK setting didn't click but loving this so far. Gamertag is ItSameCraig.
  15. As if we hadn't had enough battery chat, I'm feeling slightly shortchanged with the official plug and charge kit and want something that lasts longer. Are Eneloops the way to go, or are the cheaper Ikea equivalents basically just as good?
  16. Got 100% over the weekend. It basically feels like this game was made for me, which I wasn't expecting. Everything had the right amount of challenge for me, from the fighting to how much attention you need to pay and brain-wracking you need to do to find the shrines and solve the mysteries. Pitched to perfection.
  17. There's one thing I don't get, but it's possible I'm being thick. Am I right in thinking there was already a multiverse with different versions of everyone, who all follow the same timeline and do the same things? Like, Richard E Loki was fine until he decided to undo his self exile a bit, right? The timeline is different to the multiverse, no? Alligator Loki's crime wasn't just being an alligator, but that he did something different in the alligator version of Thor: The Rubbish One that 'our' Loki didn't do. There's a sacred timeline that covers the multiverse. The difference now is that each of those universes get to do what they want, and now have loads of wild timelines flying about. The more I read that back, the less sense it makes.
  18. Guys this was brilliant, what's all the commotion about? For a while all the MCU stuff, movie or otherwise, has been some stories that eventually act as episodes in a never-ending season of superhero nonsense. It's great.
  19. Honestly, the more I try to put it into words the more I think I'm talking shite. There's loads of games there even for someone like me who doesn't particularly like shootymans and the like.
  20. I'm always thinking that I'm not really in the Xbox target demographic, similar to others in this thread. The showcase was all very Xbox-y and left me with mixed emotions. That said, I've got loads of games on my Series X that I'm rattling through, and looking at those Game Pass images there's like 8 games out before the end of the year (which is just six months!) that I'll be downloading day one. Happy days.
  21. Aye you redeem and it just gets added as credit in you wallet or whatever. Then you pick that as your first payment method on the store when you go and buy something.
  22. I love this. Done the main story and the Foundation DLC and found very little to dislike. Finding myself holding off on the AWE DLC though. I sort of liked Alan Wake, and part of me wishes there was a middle point between looking up the DLC on YouTube and actually playing it. I want to have played it without going through the bother. How long is it, and should I bother? I've only seen people saying it's a bit pants.
  23. Series S came today! It's so dinky! I genuinely can't believe it. But, can someone guide me through game sharing? I'm losing my mind a little. Series S is set up as my home console upstairs, Series X is downstairs. This way my partner can play a game we've purchased on my account (and Game Pass stuff) upstairs while signed in on her account, and I can play downstairs at the same time (I just sign in and can access stuff). Now, how do we make the opposite happen as well, where I can play upstairs on my 'home' console while my partner can access my content downstairs at the same time? I'd need to be signed in and allowing access to games on both boxes at the same time, which I don't think can happen.
