  1. Smile here, delivered about an hour back. (actually scratch that. I thought it was smile, Was just Amazon)
  2. Pretty much, I could hear your Alexa Bing Bong. :-)
  3. Playing on my Pixelbook - volume has disappeared and was a juttery mess (Gears 5). Was working ok-ish a few weeks back for Forza, but nowhere near as smooth or responsive as Stadia for me.
  4. What a hoot :-) This kinda holds it together - Queen and Eastenders, what's not to love? https://rave.dj/iJgjzgy06tUnZw Trance and Wham you say? https://rave.dj/DtQefZkhhgVKfA
  5. Cheers dude - left some apples! Appreciated the Corona Mask on your face :-)
  6. I had been carting around boxes of CDs dating back to the 80s from house to house, always consigned to stay in the boxes whilst I listened to them via other means. My last house move, I didn't have the space for the boxes to sit there in dust and unloved, so I did one final rip of everything over a few months, and gave the lot away to Sue Ryder. If you're not using them, anything you can raise for (insert charity of choice) is better than them sitting unloved, or you coining 10 pence via selling them on.
  7. Just for clarity ( which I acknowledge has been less than clear from Google). "Stadia base" doesn't require subscription, and you buy games full price. Stadia Pro does, you get a game (or two) free a month, and buy games at a discount.
  8. I played Destiny for 3 different bouts of 2 hours yesterday at various times - as others here have said , pretty much perfect. In other Stadia news - the buddy passes are now being rolled out , and also an interesting article about returns policy if you decide the game doesn't fit Stadia for whatever reason here
  9. I'm not necessarily the average punter - I have a top end PC, Switch, Xbox and game pass already. I like shiny things and new tech.
  10. Ok, I'm in - Destiny 2 on OLED, wired through Chomecast, 80ish Meg Fibre - it's really good. I'm unsure at the moment if the whole flip to a Pixel 2 / Pixelbook thing made it to the roll out, but will be trying that out tonight. I had doubts about the controller, as I'm not a fan of that style of layout of the analogues... but it feels really nice. Triggers especially.
  11. If it's any help ..... I started a new game on the Xbox, so totally starting from scratch. A video of the Concierge without any fancy stuff here
  12. Yeah, i was frustrated as hell but it hit the "one more go" itch :-) I concentrated in using bows and traps (cross o matic and wolf trap), and pumping up the "purple" stat. For mutations I went for combo , support and the one that decreases the spawn time for traps when you kill with ranged items. If you can regularly get past the concierge, save all your cells up till that point and then pump them into the "increase the chances to get ++ items" thing.
  13. Fastest run I've done was about 35 minutes from start to end, on the easiest difficulty. Average run on easiest difficulty is about 45 minutes. I've still not unlocked all weapons after 200 odd hours of play. 14 hours should enable you enough of the weapons and unlock enough of the runes to do a successful run.
  14. Every time you play, you'll get "Dead Cells" to put towards blueprints, to unlock weapons. After defeating the Concierge, you'll be able to put cells towards a better percentage of more powerful weapons appearing. Plus, you natural skills will increase and you'll know the best routes to take and how to beat bosses. So yeah, 14 hours sounds reasonable. I've put in 230 hours so far. Yeah. :-/
  15. Microsoft are doing 1 quid for 3 months at mo.... https://www.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-game-pass
  16. AR-Type The player controls a space fighter named the R-9 to defend humanity against a mysterious powerful alien life-form known as the "Bydo". With an eye patch.
  17. Bong Bong Street! Flown out there to do some work for the local council tail end of 2015. Loved it. My local now is either some God forsaken pit in Maidstone, or the bright dazzling lights of Blue Water. Slightly off the beaten track is an independent in Hawkhurst - the Kino. They have adverts for the local Public Schools. They don't sell noisy food and you can take craft beer and a very agreeable red wine in.
  18. My first ending I was then given the option to go back And back To end
  19. Leisure Investments! My first real programming job was in an office just opposite. Company was awful, I'd spend my lunch time at the arcade playing Assault. They ran a competition to win a tiny portable black/white TV for the highest score that month. Ker-Ching! Fond memories of finishing SideArms on a single credit with a crowd of onlookers, and the huge Street Fighter machine with punch pads. Can't recall the name of the second arcade, but yeah - loads of machine but felt a bit itchy/tasty in there. My dad got me a Texas Intsruments TI-99/4A fr
  20. Same here. I ended up buying one in Smiths. I've subscribed, hopefully they'll arrive!
  21. Yeah, same here... 6 days on from dispatch, nothing arrived yet. And an email telling me not to miss out on sub offer, with issue 2 out soon. Gah!
  22. Cheers guys, it's 5.62 on the South Africa store, with coins from my dead cells , that's 4.96. Bonus!
