  1. Monk's full season was quite an enjoyable ride I thought! Highest ever league position! But, yeah, the football took a nose dive after Laudrup left.
  2. Swansea fan here, and I'm starting to get done optimism for the season. That'll be the kiss of death then!
  3. I've been a big fan of The Greatest Generation podcast over the last few years. Their next gen reviews have been really entertaining. But hearing them gush over Discovery has made me question whether to continue listening to them. I really don't understand the genuine enthusiasm.
  4. Yes and no. I mean a shotgun isn't going to penetrate metal armour on a robot in the same way a high calibre rifle will. Whereas a closeup shotgun to flesh is gonna cause way more damage than a single rifle bullet. Either way, my guess is that it's just a design decision to stop players from just pimping up one single Weapon and using that throughout the whole game. I made my way through new colossus just using the armour piercing upgrade on the battle rifle. It was all you needed.
  5. Polygon has a guide about it today https://www.polygon.com/2019/7/26/8911065/beginners-match-weapon-barriers-shields-upgrades-modifications-crush-power-melee-pep-signals
  6. Yep. In your weapon-wheel, each of your guns have the same corresponding icon next to them as you see on the enemy armour bars.
  7. Re: the 'bullet sponge' stuff. I don't think the game does a great job explaining that the different enemies have one of two types of armour. The shape of "white blobs" on the enemy health bars show which kind each enemy type is. You need to use the right gun for the right enemy or the armour can take ages to wear down.
  8. Some more reviews https://www.polygon.com/reviews/2019/7/25/20726542/wolfenstein-youngblood-review-pc-switch-ps4-xbox-one https://www.gameinformer.com/review/wolfenstein-youngblood/pivoting-in-the-right-direction https://www.pcgamer.com/wolfenstein-youngblood-review/ 77 on metacritic so far https://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/wolfenstein-youngblood/critic-reviews
  9. Not feeling terribly optimistic as a Swansea fan. New manager just hired with no senior-team management experience, offloading almost the last of our premier league players, little to no chance of any major signings. I think we'll just about survive in the middle of the bottom half of the table but I think there's little to no chance of a promotion. Not too much to get excited by!
  10. I had really high hopes for the season after New Eden. I felt it was going to turn into Star Trek again. I feel sad remembering that now
  11. I remember the first time I played it. It was at the Hereford May Fair (an annual event where the main streets are closed and turned into a giant funfair) and I would have been 8 or 9. I was so disorientated and in awe of what I'd just played that, walking out of the temporary arcade, I stepped right into a pile of fresh human vomit that was lying on the floor There, that's my memory!
  12. I can use my wired 360 controller just fine. Wonder why the elite doesnt work for you..
  13. There are quite a few games I've had that, if you visit the play store on a pc web browser, will allow you to select your shield as an install target (even if they don't appear when you search on the native play store on the shield). Some of them even give proper banners on the homescreen too. Sideloading the apkpure app (which just mirrors the apks that are on google play) is a good bet for others though. That will happily let you install unmodified apks so you can still link to google play services and get your save-games/progress/achievements etc working. Going via more dodgy stores like aptoide often gets you modded apks instead...
  14. Yep, nothing else. Our cable provider (ComHem, I live in Sweden) has an app that you can install on it and stream all live channels (and catch up services). They gave us a tivo box too but i've never actually plugged it in to the telly as I didn't see any reason to. Plus there are apps for netflix/spotify/iplayer etc etc for all other telly and music stuff. The Shield has enough grunt that all the apps are nice and snappy to use, unlike the lag-fest of using most apps natively installed on smart tellies. I sold my xbox a while ago and just stream my PC games to the telly via the Shield now (either from my local PC in the spare room on Gamestream, or cloud streaming on GeForce Now). The controller's actually really nice for gaming. It looks like a nightmare but is pretty good. But you can use ps4/xb1 pads wirelessly on it too if you prefer.
  15. I love me my Shield. It's the only box under our telly now.
  16. Nvidia Shield for me, since it does so much more than emulation too. It has your Netflix/iPlayer etc, plus local PC game streaming on Gamestream and remote PC streaming on GeForce Now, and all kinds of dodgy video streaming on Kodi/Morpheus/Plex etc. And Android gaming if you want it
  17. I bet that if they'd ditched the music then they could have had it running a bit faster!
  18. The 2015 (but not the 2017 updated version) of the gamepad controller (i.e. the joypad, not the remote control) is WiFi-Direct. All the other controllers are Bluetooth.
  19. Wow, so nice! Even has the music, from what I can hear I shall give this a go!
  20. Ah, beta fix available if you sign up here https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1090943/shield-tv/shield-experience-7-2-2-test-images/
  21. Sounds like PS3 controller support is temporarily borked (page 2 of this thread) https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1004150/shield-tv/ps3-controller-support/2/
  22. Anyone played it? The bad spectrum conversion of Kung Fu Master was so disappointing to me in my youth! I remember reading the bad review in Crash (56% if I remember!) trying to convince myself that maybe it was still worth a purchase. It wasn't. Sooooo slow in comparison to the arcade!
