  1. Probably not worth your time digging there. It's not like you could be sitting on a blue triangle DSOTM or Plum LZ1...
  2. Just about to post my first impressions, and this is it! What's up with that, all those YouTube early console gift wankers never mentioned this in their unboxings
  3. A GT game being released in the first year of a PS console, that surely ain't happening (unless its a Prologue)
  4. I'll let you know once I've given it a go! I'm liking the (finally!) real obsession around right now with performance and framerates that is long overdue. I always found Japanese developers of old would really optimise their games (from Ridge Racer on the PS1 onwards) but with Western development taking over, that took a backseat. To me it finally feels that 28fps or 54fps just won't cut it anymore for a larger portion of the gaming community, and that's great. Cyberpunks woes seem to be the final big swell in this regard, quite extraordinary. I wonder how long it wi
  5. Seat of the pants got lucky today with Currys, but Christ knows how. I was up and working about 7:30am and noticed some feverous activity on some of those stock checker sites talking about Currys, Went to the Currys website, could see all the consoles and various bundles but they could not be added to the basket. Someone posted "use the Currys app" so downloaded that and tried that. I was somehow able to add just the console to the basket, went through the checkout, put payment details in, went to authorise, looked like it did it and then CRASH, everything errored and went offline. Web
  6. personal favourite, my copy from 1984's release day. Little 13 year old me didn't really understand what he did here, but as I've grown older I've appreciated it more and more. 7 tracks all with completely different style and approach.
  7. The best Stereolab album - it has guitars in it
  8. "Demon Souls" and "PS5 Stock Checker Hyper Turbo Upper" are the only 2 games worth playing right now. I occasionally check stock but have given up for now getting one before Spring. Maybe by then Sony will already be on their 2nd hardware revision by then.
  9. "Lost" was a masterclass in getting you watching the next episode. But it built far far too much up and up each time, and in the end became a bit too ridiculous. I got that sinking feeling in the final episodes that even when they couldn't explain how fucking polar bears end up on a tropical island that it was going to end up mugging its audience off in the end. Even by the last 90 minute episode, everything still hadn't been explained, so was always going to end up with some bullshit ending. Ironically someone I knew that watched the first episode when it aired on C4 actually pred

    £180 on Amazon UK for the Deluxe SOTT vinyl set at the moment, about the right price, at least you are not really paying for the rather poor book contents now
  11. I'm about 12 years behind the curve (after the last mega show "Lost" which felt like a complete waste of time overall, so I was always hesitant to starting a new series with such a large episode base) but we started watching this during December and finished the series and the film last night. What a ride. Glad I waited for Netflix and HD streaming rather than borrow DVD's off folk over the years. The only negative observation was the 5.1 audio, series 1 was fine, but from series 2 onwards the dialogue dropped in the mix, and at times it was whisper quiet to the point to activate
  12. Yes Sleaford Mods have lost of bit of their spitting venom and vitriol since "Divide and Exit", or maybe I've just become conditioned to it now, maybe someone that has never listened to them might find their new material a bit much at first take? This was their peak I think, performing "Fizzy" at Glastonbury, but they still have legs I reckon to go further and darker. Andrew Fearn doesn't get enough props for the sound, he is always the one they say does fuck all. If you've heard Jason's version of Sleaford Mods before Andrew joined, you'd know he made all the difference
  13. I've been dipping in and out of PS5 news for a few weeks, seems pandemic or not this new console is impossible to obtain. If this website's little pull down option to display "See when shops last had stock" then no UK retailer has anything since 3/4th December. https://www.hotstock.io/uk/p/playstation-5-console Not in the US of course, just last week Brexit?
  14. A lot of content here, could be playing this for a while. Its a classic Japanese offline game with very gradual unlocking systems that keep you at it. Between shooting people in the head on COD Cold War or driving a Japanese train in this, that's about my gaming life probably for 2021
