  1. That's not bad. Although the cursor, and lack of gun sight kills it for me a bit. Fingers crossed for a self-contained Q2 emu solution soon.
  2. I feel like I saw some kind of commentary when it was first announced pointing us to the end of August for a release.
  3. Hyperbole has ruined everything.
  4. Is Moss 2 any good? I enjoyed the first, but everyone telling me that it wasn't as good as Astro Bot just rang in my ears. Tell me they've at least stolen loads of ideas from it?
  5. I fucking love the Guacamelee art style. In fact, I think it'd suit a short side story for Manny Calavera. Though people would get mad. People did also have a problem with the COMI art style at the time too, as well as it not being a 'proper' sequel. But now it's got a deeply rooted connection to nostalgia, it's become a protected entity. It's probably my personal favourite, but I love seeing new interpretations.
  6. I'm at level 46 with the main story done (underwhelmingly), and I think I might also be done. I'm curious about the Atlantis stuff, with 3 of the 4 artefacts collected. But I've heard that the last mythical fucker is a bastard if you're not ~level 50. And getting to 46 was a tedious grind. I'm also curious about the cultists, with about 5 to go. But again, the barrier to entry for a few of them is 50, and I'm just losing the will. Shitty little quests that seem to be 'Go x hundred metres to a place which annoyingly has no tower. Collect thing. Now trudge back'. They ain't fun. Is there any mind-blowing stuff that should keep me playing, or should I just watch the resolutions on YT?
  7. The Minotaur actually being a stranded Pred that they tricked into a maze? Yeah, I'll have that.
  8. I had a good time with this. Logical enough, and a good blend of action, violence and thoughtful ideas. I'd happily see them go all Assassin's Creed and show predators taking on different groups throughout world history.
  9. Alas, wouldn't have been me. I was only part time at both, and only Game in Leeds. Would've still been in Newcastle around that time. The old, old Gamestation in Leeds (the second in the country, I believe?) was pretty great. I bought my first Saturn from there second hand for (I think) £150. New Generation Consoles on Mill Hill was always an exciting place to see brand new import shit too.
  10. Ok, so I've seen Prey (Indigenous survival) and The Old Ways (Indigenous witchery), and I'm planning to watching History of the Occult next, which is... surviving indigenous witchery? I think it works. Love the party game idea.
  11. Our fake loyalty silo was under the name Darth Vader.
  12. Install the app from the Oculus store, install the server on the Windows PC and run your games out of Steam once you're connected. Just make sure you're on the the same WiFi network and, ideally, on 5GHz. It's immensely easy. https://www.vrdesktop.net/
  13. 100% agree with this. It's my setup and I have no reason to use anything else. Plus, I can do it in a different room to the computer, without having some preposterous 18m USB C cable.
  14. I had a great time working for both Gamestation and Game. Had an entertaining colleague who used to swear at me through the CCTV camera speaker over my shoulder and I was dealing with customers. We had a kickabout with Champ Man promotional balls that wrecked the shop's merchandising as was shown to us on CCTV the following day. Back when I drank slightly too much, and as a result had to recover too much, the hero of a manager would ask if I fancied being in the back for some shrink wrapping instead of public facing. Though that was for her benefit as much as mine, and I'm not sure the confined plastic fumes helped. But man, if I couldn't wrap a Master System 1, 6 games and the little arcade stick nobody could. Obviously there were plentiful creatures on both sides of the counter, myself included, but it's all fondly remembered. Even met a partner of 4 years working there. Shout out to the Newcastle and Leeds dirtbags.
  15. This approach is clearly divisive and I want to love it more, but I'm just waiting for the end now. I know that they're doing an excellent job of conveying Gene's descent into the mundane, but that feels like they're throwing it in our faces too. Ultimately, I think one of the bigger problems for me is that, in contrast to the high stakes chaos of the past, none of his modern day hijinks feel stressful or tense to me. We've been blasting down the motorway for too long, and now pootling around on a B road doesn't feel fast.
  16. Yeah, this one's been in the public consciousness for a long time but, just like booze, tobacco, fried foods etc, we're all setting our own personal boundaries of acceptability. Fuck, I have some Prague Powder/curing salt in my kitchen. I think you're on the money with the fatalistic approach to getting cancer. There's plenty of it in my family, and I'm not planning on having kids, so I want to make sure I enjoy what I enjoy. Though that will no doubt change as I age and stare mortality more closely in the eye. Bearing in mind that the main reason I have my CostCo card seems to be buying their beef hotdogs, I'm probably not quite a neutral take on this.
  17. Couldn't you just map the pedal to the grip button on a single controller? Might take a minute to get used to, but feels like it could be pretty elegant.
  18. The Old Ways Exorcism horror based in unnamed rural Mexico, but with a very blasé approach to whether they're speaking in Spanish or Nahuatl. It's almost fine. One or two good moments, but generally the actors are sweatless and polished, with immaculate makeup. Like Jurassic World 3. It's something stupid like 94% on RT, but an absolute waste of fascinating subject matter. 1.5/5
  19. Rift S is discontinued, so you might get it cheap. But I suspect you'd regret not just getting the Quest 2 in terms of versatility.
  20. A lot of the puzzle and narrative driven games have a Myst-like quality. Though none so much as this one.
  21. Oh absolutely not what I had in mind. We're talking 360 degree, fully immersive Point Blank stages. Similarly, Time Crisis that you can play like Crisis VRigade, leaping behind cover and laying on the floor shooting over barriers. Playing the arcade machines in 2D is cool, but massively underexplores the potential.
  22. The Room is absolutely one of the best ones, and you'd hope that a sequel is due any time now. Other interesting ones include Red Matter, Floor Plan 2, Extreme Escape, I Expect You To Die 2, Time Stall just about fits. There are more on PCVR, but many are very janky.
  23. Monkey Island, Call of the Sea, Escape Room Simulator, Worms, King of Monsters. The middle two are recent games that I'm keen to play, but am waiting on patches because they just seem made for VR. Also basically any First Person Puzzler that won't make me vomit.
  24. I had exactly the same response. There was some fun stuff, but I didn't really fancy getting pulled around by the dick by writers who think that enigma and obfuscation are the same thing. I'd probably be more inclined to go back if I'd heard it was all wrapped up in one season. Though I do like Harold Perrineau.
