    Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

    I thought rewatching this would help after having a serious break-up a few months ago. That was a HUGE error of judgement

    Your shameful gaming secrets

    When I was about 8 my dad told me and my younger brother that if we tidied our rooms we would get a reward. We went up and I moved some shit around creating the impression I had done it, leaving my brother alone. Moments later yer my brother shouts me in the room (we shared) and under his pillow was Pokemon blue (then brand new). I looked under mine and there was Pokémon red. We played that shit on our brick gameboys for years. Pokemon red was my fave game of all time. 15 years later my brother confessed that when he looked under the pillows he actually had been left Pokemon red but didn’t like the look of Charizard on the front so switched them moments before I went in. This single swap influenced my love of Pokemon. Red. Bell end.

    £18 seems like rather optimistic pricing for Dragon's Lair.

    Bad movies you can't help but to love

    I think Mission to Mars is the one that needs the apology

    No shiny groudon yet but very happy with these two!

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

    Just played a couple of missions. I like it. Controls took a little figuring out but you can hold buttons for cinematic views just as I had hoped. Looks great, runs great. Way to early to tell if it’ll offer much up in gameplay apart from the standard fly and shoot

    New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (2019)

    What's the save system here? Complete a castle to get persistent progress?
  10. TWAB Before we dive into the weekly roundup of information about the game, we’d like to shed some more light on the future of the franchise. From Destiny Franchise Director Luke Smith: Weapon changes coming in the 2.1.4 update: Black Armoury changes: Niobe Labs:
  11. That's very kind of you. I'm sorely tempted as I am still without an invite but I've read elsewhere it's possibly a bad idea to use a key not associated with your own PSN ID. I am checking into this to see if I could use it without upsetting the apple cart, but if you use it in the meantime or pass it on to someone bolder than me that's obviously cool! I really do appreciate the offer if nothing else, really made my day thanks.

    Battlefield V

    Fuck sake Dice Squad conquest is a total waste of time. Tides of war 2 is off to a damp squib of a start

    I laughed quite a bit, probably at Lucille and Ida (especially Ida) more than the lads. My favourite line was from a bit part though: For some reason that really got me.

    Halloween (2018). Surprisingly Decent.

    We just did a double bill of the original and this back to back. One thing I will say about the original that hasn't aged well is some of the acting during the killings and the death faces (eye bulging, tongues flopping out). But you can kind of forgive that given when it was released and that it was one the first ever slashers. It doesn't have a while lot to learn from. Other than that, it's great. Feels kinda weird watching a slasher with hardly any blood in it though as we're so used to seeing blood and gore in horrors these days. I love how they're watching The Thing (original version) on the TV knowing what would come on Carpenters career a few years later. This new sequel was ok, but seemed like a film just wanted to showcase Michael's killing more than anything. In the original the fear came from the creepy music and the stalking, in this we just see Michael going around killing people over and over in inventive ways. All the tension is taken away. The only tense part really is the bit in house near the end. Although Laurie really does come off looking stupid in some parts, having trained for this moment for 40 years and then making some schoolboy horror trope errors. There are some great call backs to the original though like the opening credits, the music and the role reversal between Laurie and Michael. Probably the best of the sequel for me although I do agree that I liked Laurie path in H20 more.

    Subnautica - Ver 1.0 Out Now

    There's no way in hell they'd get it running on PS4 in VR, sadly.

    Despite its name the PSPrices site has Switch eShop content too and shows historic changes in price for each game as well as its current price in different regions. You can set alerts too. https://psprices.com/region-gb/index?platform=Switch

    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    Really enjoyed the gameplay segment, particularly the SonicFox vs Rewind set; that was nice and tense. The Perfect Block as a Just Defend style mechanic is a good addition; sounds like it also negates chip damage as well as allowing you to recover more quickly when defending. The "Punish" notification when you hit an opponent in recovery is excellent and I wish more games had it (apparently Killer Instinct did?); it's a useful learning tool for learning guaranteed rebuttals for seemingly safe, spammed moves. The Fatal Blow move being a once per match comeback move rather than once per round is cool. It means you have to win at least one round honestly and creates some meter-management mind-games too. The King of Fighters style short hop to counter sweeps and the like seems good. I also like that special moves can be enhanced offensively or defensively (with separate meters for each, recharging on a timer rather than building through offense/defense). Skarlet's defensive blood orb is a slow fireball. Slow fireballs are one of my favourite things in fighting games. The stances and animations still look stiff and look awkward when transitioning from one another despite the flow and choreography of longer moves being so polished. I guess it's a deliberate style choice at this point but it does cheapen an otherwise great looking game. I like that the blood colour pops a vibrant red. The slow motion into the frozen final frame for fatalities is particularly well done. Very into it.

  21. The new episode is up. I had to use the search to find the 4K HDR version. The Amazon Prime UI is a total shitshow.

    Nioh - Feudal Souls

    Pretty sure I don't have one of those. EDIT: Oh lord have mercy I do have one, ten even! Super odd though as I checked by rarity earlier and thought those branches would be more rare than a Himorogi Fragment, an item which doesn't allow you to keep your Amrita. Thanks a bunch though. Now I can rest easy knowing my Amrita is safe and sound!

    Your shameful gaming secrets

    I wouldn't be ashamed to admit to playing Cook, serve, delicious. That ramps things up nicely, it's a proper game, you have to be quick and multitask and stuff. Acceptable pizza, average pizza is more up the "insultingly easy" end of the casual games spectrum. You just look at the nice pastel shades, dribble on your keyboard and make pepperoni faces.

    That gameplay reveal is better with the audience reactions btw.

    PlayStation VR

    Had a good play with the Farpoint Aim controller and the camera and found a few things. The length of the cable on the camera is restrictive for me because the PS4 is under the TV. But if I put the camera above me, pointing down, I get really bad drift to the right. If I put the camera low, pointing upwards , it drifts to the left. If I can get the camera at exact eye level facing front I can almost eliminate the problems. Trouble is, with the camera on the top of the TV, I'd have to play Farpoint sitting down, which defeats the point. Its hard to attach the Camera to anything at eye level when standing. Maybe a mic stand would help, but that would certainly disrupt the living room. Also, someone in this thread mentikned the first boss in Farpoint saying, you'll know it when you see it. Bloody hell. Been playing in short bursts over a few nights , thinking , oh this is the boss that I read about. Oh, no, this must be it. Oh, maybe its this bit they meant. Then , tonight , "holy SHIT!!!!"
