  1. My OG PS4 was so loud that it woke my wife up on the floor above. Got it in bits so I could compressed air the shit out of it, but I stripped a couple of screws like a beef-fingered div so I can only get it so far open. At this point, I figured 'fuck it', and just held it up like a huge harmonica and started blowing into it for all I was worth. All sorts of dust and fluffy crap just started flying out all over the place, and made a proper mess. It worked! Barely makes a sound now. I've got a couple years of PS4 exclusives to catch up on, as I'd been steering clear of the machine.
  2. Brilliant, ta man. I've plumped for FL4K, as I love having a meatshield minion. Been playing for a little while now, and the skill tree seems really complicated still. Quite involved. Also, my LB used to turn my little gremlin sidekick guy into a raging hulk, but now it sends out a Rakk or two. Can't quite seem to get my head around it.
  3. Will likely be starting this in the new year, doing co-op with a mate. Are there any two classes that compliment each other particularly well, or is it much of a muchness?
  4. This Fall of Cybertron trailer kicks all sorts of ass. I still watch it occasionally even now, years after the fact. The game itself wasn't anything groundbreaking, but was loads of fun. Especially

    Avoiding Spoilers

    It's not just overenthusiastic writers in game media. Movie trailers have gotten a bit too informative lately, as well. Half of them just condense the entire plot into a 90sec spoiler reel. I've become a bit militant with spoilers in my old age, though. Even a review score feels like knowing too much. Like it's tainting my opinion before I've had the pleasure.

    Jolly decent of you, man. Good work.

    Gamer or lamer?

    I did say max. I'm talking those hungover, missus-is-out-for-the-afternoon, 'I'm gonna treat myself, here' sessions. An erstwhile colleague of mine was keen on saying that while sex is great and everything, it's not as good as the real thing.

    Gamer or lamer?

    This doesn't work, as a parallel. I can quite happily play a game for several hours. Porn loses most of its appeal once fluids get spilt, half hour at max.
  9. I like to play Bully up to the Halloween bit, but the love for Costume Quest 2 here is making me wanna have a pop at that this year. Though, there's a toddler kicking about in the house now, which has kinda made me a Switch guy exclusively. Luigi's Mansion 3 might have the honours this year.
  10. Yep. My PS4 broke down a while ago, but I've not bothered getting it sorted. Good to know I've got a date to work towards.

    Plusnet is a Yorkshire ISP, I believe, and Hendo's is very much a Sheffield thing. Do they get it in Australia? I've never seen it outside of Sheffield. Remarkable, if so.
  12. I just cannot seem to shift the Nextwave theme tune from my head some days.

    Got a rare passout from parenting this afternoon, and I think I'm off to see this. Quick question, for those who've seen it: does it have those kinda bad chroma key scenes all over it? The last few DC movies have been terrible for that, really pulling you out of the picture.
  15. This a great thread. A most enjoyable read. My dad had a bit of an interest a long time ago, but nothing to speak of since about the mid-80s. He had this little space invaders clone handheld that he would play: And after that, he got my sister a Mattel Aquarius, that she barely got a look in, as he would hog it pretty much all the time. I remember my mum banning him from it, as he was driving the electricity bill up, apparently. Nightstalker was his jam. I got a Speccy in 1988, but he didn't seem particularly impressed with it, thankfully. I'd have likely not gotten much of a look in, either, had he been seduced by Last Ninja 2 and Chase HQ.
