  1. This is on one of the tiers of PS Plus now I think plus other platforms. I enjoyed what I played of it and my son really liked it but like Disco Elysium I spent a lot of my time with the game thinking "some people are going to be a lot more passionately into this than I am".
  2. Interesting thanks. As my order time is approaching I'm starting to get wobbles and thinking I'd rather just put the 550 quid towards an obscenely specced small form factor gaming laptop....
  3. I might've missed this in the thread - but what is the CEMU performance like? Could you get 60fps on Mario Kart 8?
  4. Why the hell would you want the TV show to slavishly follow the games? The story in the games is about 90% shit. And yes, "earned" is a good way of putting it. It reminds me a little of earlier series of The Expanse, when it was a little more poised. Like The Expanse it creaks in a lot of bits, but it has a coherent core direction and philosophy, which everyone seems to have bought into. And unlike The Expanse I don't want to drop most of the cast into a tar pit.
  5. I don't come on rllmuk for cry laughing emojis twinned with ranting against "woke" culture. ITS PC GONE MAD INNIT
  6. Of course my disk version of Death Stranding and Ghosts of Tsushima require me to delete the disk installs and entirely redownload 120Gb worth of the same data to work.
  7. For some reason I thought as a PS+ member I might get upgraded to Extra for the remainder of my sub. Then I remembered this is Sony and I'm lucky they didn't come round and burn my flat down and shit in my bed. I have most of the Essential library that I think I'd want, and I also think the upgrade for the remainder of your sub message is aggressively shit. It costs 16 quid for me but there is a long warning about how it'll auto-renew at 86 quid, how Sony have the right to charge me more and that if I want to learn about how to stop the sub I have to go into a basement and find a toilet stall with "beware of the leopard" on it. I might not upgrade on principle, though I guess it might be worth it to not have to get up and swap disks for some of the games I have and also Morales and Valhalla. Maybe.
  8. Microsoft tried the TV game crossover thing before didn't they with a game I've forgotten the name of. Which wasn't great and nobody played.
  9. This is remarkably good. It feels like everyone involved is frantically pedalling to make the absolute best of it. People acting their hearts out, wringing every last drop from the script and setting and FX and lighting guys doing their best with whatever budget they were given in creative ways. It's such a contrast to the lazy, shit out Star Wars stuff recently. Obi Wan is just coasting down a hill, relying on nostalgia to gently drift towards a destination. The editing in particular is so far ahead of Boba Fett or Obi Wan it's embarrassing. Shots are also creative, moving heights, sometimes swirling in and through scenes, framing of characters is interesting, action scenes are pacey and well directed. It's not perfect, but if I were Disney I'd lift this entire team out and give them some proper cash to do whatever the next Tatooine based snore fest is and give it a mighty kick up the ass.
  10. I literally don't care who wins.
  11. Verstappen and Horner basically endorsing genocide and the use of chemical weapons by cynically celebrating a win there. Brave Lewis stopped on the last lap to rescue a drowning baby deer, it just wasn't shown on camera. God bless im.
  12. I'm not sure we can blame Horner for racists. And they did condemn the racist abuse from a quick scan of news articles as well as sacking one of their own team for being a racist. So, again, I'm not really sure why you're elevating him to special dickhead status.
  13. Yeah, I quite like him. He's a whiny cunt, but quite up front about it and leans into it. Some of the "nice faces" of F1 get more on my tits with their indirect "subtle" cuntery. Horner is also probably on Sky and others quite a lot because he doesn't repeat generic press-sanctioned phrases like motor racing's Harry Kane, with a similarly blank look on his face. He'd also be a twat to your face, Toto and his wife would be all smiles and then you'd find they'd been poisoning your cat.
  14. Yes, because the team principal for Red Bull is absolutely supposed to act in a way that benefits the other teams first and foremost. Horner is a bit of a dick generally, but by and large he's no more of a dick than Toto and every single one of them will take any edge to make sure their team wins. Ridiculous to constantly make out he's special in some way because he whines or tries to find an edge via whatever means he can. In terms of the cars porposing I do agree with him too. Merc took a gamble and made a very uncomfortable car - but Russell's results suggests it's driveable and can comfortably top 6 to top 3 each race. Maybe they should sort it the fuck out or put seat suspension in. Financials and cost caps are a separate issue. Red Bull are winning, what do you want him to announce? Free scram jets for all opponents' cars or something?
