  1. All Grainger Games stores are now closed

    Sad news, but like others I can't remember the last thing I bought from them. Actually tell a lie, I do: Dark Souls 2: Sotfs on PS4, preowned about 3 years back in the Maidenhead branch. I worry for Argos on the high street too, I read an article recently that they make a loss for 6 months or the year or so, only actually making money the rest of the year thanks to Christmas/sales. Surely that ain't sustainable in the long run.
  2. Nice work Al! FG can also be cheesed a bit as sometimes he gets stuck behind one or two of the gravestones. Can't remember the next boss, it might be BSB (non spoilers acronym there) which is a great fight. Lemme know if you/anyone needs a hand with something Bloodborne-y, I haven't restarted yet but the beginning I can happily blitz through.
  3. When you come online Ricky, check if me, Vinnie, tcharliel or Baring are in a party - if so jump in. We play a few nights a week usually.
  4. Crappy User Interfaces

    I was generally in favour of the video up there, that was until he got to Netflix and failed to bemoan the fucking "play preview" video you get when you rest on every fucking title. Maybe I'm in the minority but I tend not to enjoy the "Netflix skip to next video before the audio fucks you off" mini-game it thrusts upon me each time. My self-imposed title of the mini-game needs work I grant you that.
  5. Fortnite

    Aye, us rllmukers from the Football League folder: myself, @sjvinnie, @Baring, @tcharliel, @Theholyhogg, @gooner4life to name a few, we very rarely build structures - usually just ramps up hills and under gunfire in an open area of course, we still rack up a fair few wins (usually at least 1 per night, each 2 hours session). Agreed though that those who can build well and quickly are always our toughest foes. With all these new modes (50 v 50, 20s, etc), I would love a "no building" mode, or even a "no jumping" mode.
  6. Fortnite

    The gunplay is too random for my liking at times, and the incessant jumping when in close quarters is a bit rubbish too imo.
  7. Haha, such beautiful raw Dark Souls truths. I had trouble with that tree too, stupid postules on its body were hard to reach. The trek to get to it isn't that much fun either, through that swamps with the big crabs. The great thing about the Souls games is how the game really does try to stop you at every hurdle (in everything except controls and mechanics, which are spot on) so mistakes you make are very much your mistakes, not the games. That and the excellent bosses. I always hated bosses in games until the Souls games came along. Everyone is different, offers a different challenge. In Bloodborne I remember there was a big furore about a boss further on in the game - Vicar Amelia I think it was called? Yeah I did her first attempt. Easy peasy. Yet people in the Discussion thread go on about her being the hardest boss in the game. Conversely, the very first boss which people seemed to have no trouble with took me a good 6 or 7 attempts TLDR: is gud game play it ok.
  8. Haha, have you played Dark Souls 3 Mards? For me it's the toughest one (aside from Dark Souls 1 as newbie of course).
  9. Can't believe you'd turn down the first one Pants. 95 dribbling! Cor blimey.
  10. Done! Bloodborne comes on tomorrow, grab it mate, create your character and try to play the first 2-3 hours yourself, getting to grips with it. It's quite a gentle intro level if I remember correctly. If you're having trouble though with the pre-boss area let me know I'll pop on and teach you the basics. I'll be online Wednesday eve this week too.
  11. Bloodborne is one of the best single player experiences on PS4. Get it. I would add that in true Souls style the first boss can be quite the "brutal" introduction. If anyone fancies giving it a bash I would happily utilise the PS+ promotion to join them in a co-op wrecking spree.
  12. I picked this up the other week from a Facebook sale, and was thoroughly enjoying playing it (I'm still undecided if this or the recent 2D Rayman games are better - both are awesome)... that was at least until I got to level 4-2, when my disc refused to load the stage. Again and again. I tried everything under the sun (and google!) to fix it, until a close examination of the disc reveals a tiny bubble on one part of the disc, presumably the culprit. Contacted the seller but no reply... really frustrating as it's a fantastic wee game and was keen to finish it (how close to the end was I?). Not sure I can justify buying it again for £16 on eBay/CEX with a pile of shame looking on at me with puppy dog eyes.
  13. Games Exchange

    I just did some research and aye there seem to be loads of places near my work, but none near my home. C'est la vie. Grand, I'll probably post a small list up in here next week of things I'm looking to shift.
  14. Games Exchange

    Parcel tape and bubble wrap makes sense! Grand. Also, and call me stupid (go on, I dare ya!) but how to do you drop off the parcel with MyHermes? I tend to be out at work for 11 hours each weekday so I always thought that actually getting the thing to the delivery company might be an issue.
  15. Games Exchange

    How do you guys tend to send out second hand games that you've sold? I have a few that are gathering dust and thinking of selling, but unsure what to use to package it up / who to use to send!
