    I’d like to play RE4 again. It it may be an unpopular opinion, but I’m not sure I could stomach the controls again though. I’d pay £30 for RE4 with BOTW’s control scheme in a flash...

    Cheers all. I love multiplayer shooters... Sticks to aim or gyro?

    I've had a Switch for a few months, but not picked up Splatoon 2. What makes it so good?

    Towerfall is just about my perfect game.

    It's awesome. Buy Towerfall too. That's also on sale for £9.

    For him to play, or for you both to play together? I had a lot of fun playing through Kirby in co-op with my daughters (9 and 7) and occasionally with my wife too. It's not a game I'd play on my own, but we've rinced it as a group. I've not played Yoshi, but I've read that it's better in SP than co-op.

    Kirby Star Allies

    It’s the best game for kids I’ve ever played.

    I use one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07F436JT6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's small and seems to work fine. You must use an official Switch power supply though.
  9. No the 145ms for that xbox game is not because of controller latency, by which I mean its not because there is a significance delay due to the xbox's wireless controllers. That's around 2ms I think, which is tiny. Who knows why the Xbox latency is so high for that game - that's a shit value. A more like for like comparison is to compare the PC value of 79ms to Stadia's 166ms. Practically speaking, there will always be a delay between pressing a button and what happens on screen. The ideal sequence of events is something like this: Frame 1: receive controller input Frame 2: calculate how to draw frame based on received controller input Frame 3: show frame based on received controller input For a 60fps game, one frame is shown every 16ms and so some delay is inevitable. As the DF article shows, the best console games for latency (e.g. COD) have input latency of around 40ms.
  10. I don’t understand how removing the console has any material effect on lag. The wireless path from my PS4 controller to my PS4 is very low latency.
  11. I haven’t seen the presentation yet, but the bbc mentions direct connection via WiFi to their data centres. Given the range of WiFi, are they going to put a dara centre in my garden?
  12. I think it’s one hit for 187. Which is a headshot on someone with a level 3 helmet. I’ve hit for 187 a few times
  13. Great vid. I guessed correctly what was going to happen. Why do people do that?
  14. Sometimes typos come out better than what was meant! Though I think you are replying to the wrong thread...
  15. I had a game earlier where I was paired with two Spanish guys who were obviously fiends. I had no idea what they were saying so I muted them. They had just won the last game and they were high level. The game starts and I let them lead and decide where to go etc, knowing my place as the third wheel in this group. They decide to pick a battle where I thought the other guys were better positioned on high ground. I would have played it more cautiously but they rush in and both get downed. I flank sneakily and get lucky and manage to take out the squad, and revive my team mates. A few minutes later they again rush into a battle, down 1 and then both get downed. Again I clear up the squad. I revive them and then they basically stand still. I’m like “what the fuck”. Turns out this was their way of saying “we’ll follow you”. They stuck to me like glue for the rest of the match. We didn’t win, but it still felt good.
