  1. So this is the problem I’m having. I need a 4 metre hdmi cable as it passes through a chimney breast. The first ones I tried ended up with sparkles and screen blackouts after a while. Since then I’ve been trialling others without installing them through the wall to see if they work. The first lot were completely fine for a while (4k certified) but then started doing the same screen sparkles as the old ones, so I sent them back. The new ones are fine so far, but I’ve just started getting these scaling issues at start up and the 4k disc playback issue if you pause the movie. 4K and HDR are all fine though, so I’ll give them another week or so. PS4 Pro is fine with them too. Honestly, I wish you could get longer officia Sony and Microsoft 4kl hdmi cables. The hdmi cable market for 4k devices is a minefield.
  2. So I’ve had a my One X booting up into 640x480 several times now, not just when it’s been playing an old game. Only a full reboot fixes it which is really annoying. Also had an issue where I was watching a 4k disc, paused it, and when I tried to start it up again I got the “your hdmi cable may not support...” whatever it was. Rubbish.
  3. Those 3-2-1 streams are amazing. I’m not sure if I have four and a half hours to watch the next one, but I’ll give it a go in chunks. Limmy’s one of the most talented comedy writers and performers out there. Why he languishes on shoestring commissions while cringey talent-vacuums like Jimmy Carr and Michael McIntyre rake in millions is a total mystery. Just saw the sketch where DeeDee goes to Yoker. Fucking brilliant.
  4. Yakuza 2 is the greatest Yakuza. Maybe it hasn’t stood the test of time, but it has such a great story.
  5. Two volumes at least. You’re in for a surprise!
  6. 640x480? It’s downgraded itself to an original Xbox.
  7. While I’m currently quite enjoying Hickman’s SHIELD Vol 2, it really is Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure played entirely with a straight face.
  8. I played Halo CE last night. Great! Except now the XboxOneX is stuck in 640x480 and won’t even let me turn it back to 4k manually. WTF?? Restarting hasn’t worked either. Edit: ok, turning it off fully in settings worked, but fucked if I’m going to do that every time I fancy a game of Halo.
  9. Having managed to resist Oath and refusing to get sucked into the bottomless Marvel money-pit, I’m backing this. Political intrigue and global manipulation? Yes please. Looks pretty interesting and it’s not break the bank.
  10. Looks absolutely gorgeous. Will you be at UKGE this year? Whatever, I’m in.
  11. The Toy Story movies buck the reality of sequels and get incrementally better. Until 4, which is good but very much another episode rather than a progression.
  12. The artwork on this is making me queasy.
  13. Dark star Games always have X-Wing 2.0 stuff going cheap but they have a few really cheap offers at the moment, Slave 1 for £12 (rrp £28) and a Tie-Striker for under a tenner. The rest of the stuff is usually cheaper than elsewhere too. https://www.darkstargames.co.uk/star-wars-x-wing-2nd-edition.html?scroll=126 Pewpewpew.
