    Latest physical Switch purchases. I bought this case to store all my games in. It can hold 63 Switch games (I have 8 spaces left) and 4 micro SD cards. As far as cases go, it's pretty cool.

    @therealjaxon that’s the worst post I’ve ever read here 😅 you’re pointing out pride marches has gay men being flamboyant as something negative to say about them? It’s about being whoever they want to be without prejudice but you’re saying they shouldn’t act that way if they don’t want to be targeted for comedy? Actually your opinion is depressing. I think this should be an off topic thread?

    Off to spend the weekend with a couple of mates, thought I’d pick up a third pad to go along with the Pro Controller and the Hori wired pad. I wondered why this was 20 quid cheaper than the official Pro pad. Turns out it’s because it’s old school battery time. Has mappable buttons on the back for whatever reason. It’s one of these if anyone’s interested. The shop also had a GameCube style pad which was tempting.

    What’s this ugly photo? It’s Ashen, Operencia, Outer Wilds (and Journey, in grey) picked up from the Epic Store sale. The sale ends on the 13th. Figured that tenner discount on everything was too good to pass up.

    People were never going to be happy, no matter what happened. I personally enjoyed the last two series. Sure, there are faults. Undeniably so. And people are entitled to their own opinions. But screaming out loudly “THEY RUINED GOT THIS SEASON!!!”. Nah. Fuck off with that nonsense. What were they expecting to happen? They’ll no doubt kick off yet again when the books eventually get done, and have their own ending. Some people are never happy. They get an idea of what they want to happen, and when it doesn’t, out comes the anger, and the barrage of “I’M DONE WITH THIS SHOW” posts on social media. Some people like it. Some don’t. Starting up a petition, about how angry you are about a TV show, is like pissing in the wind. You don’t like it. Tough tits. Move on.

    Yay - a thread that lets me show off my handy work again! I made this for my kids last year, runs into a pi running retropie with Mame installed. Id highly recommend doing it - it cost around £230 in total, and the case was a pre-cut MDF kit from ebay - I just sprayed it black and designed the decal which I had printed by a guy who refurbs old arcade units, so it's on hardwearing vinyl. It was a really fun project and not as difficult as it would first seem. Can't wait for the 4th gen RPs to come out. Hopefully they can handle some of the 3D mame stuff.

    Clustertruck. You jump on moving trucks with the intention of getting to the finish line without hitting the ground. You can buy abilities to make this easier but there's an achievement for completing the game without using them. It's hard but the last level is something else. To say it's an utter cunt is like saying Hitler was a bit of a naughty tinker. Thing is, i'd put too much practise in to not do it and finally, this morning... So there are 90 levels. Levels 1 to 89 took me 8 hours. Level 90 alone took me 17 hours. 17 fucking hours. And for what? That diamond rare achievement tune? Totally fucking worth it.

    The Lego Speed Champions is indeed ace. The biggest change is that huge challenge board you are given and with each successful challenge completed you’re awarded with a certain amount of Lego blocks. Reaching certain amount of blocks adds stuff to your Lego house as you slowly build this huge place with a swimming pool, football pitch etc. The challenges themselves are completing races, PR stunts, doing tricks in certain cars and it adds a little something to the gameplay that I’m going to miss in future updates and versions to be honest, it adds an X factor to the game that I didn’t know I wanted. Theres also quite a lot to do, there are tons of events and tons of collectibles, there is a set of collectibles that only appear at night. And as @mfnick said, it looks amazing somehow. Such fun. Such fun.

    PSA - The Lego expansion is fucking brilliant! They’ve mixed the styles perfectly, it’s amazing to behold and the island has been brilliantly designed with lots of little play areas, variety and road design which leads to good race tracks. Fortune island still has my favourite section where it snakes up the island but the variety here is excellent. Plus look at it, these screenshots don’t do it justice BTW, the details looks even better on a good TV. For example the head and tail lights, you can see the individual rings and details in game which don’t come across In screens. I almost forgot how good the sound is too. As a car geek as well as some of you know and a huge part of that is the sound for me. No other games capture this as well as Forza From what I’ve played, especially on a good home theatre set up. I’ve used the Audi Quattro, Agera R, Alfa 8c and Ferrari F40 a lot so far in this and the Audi and 8 C in particular gave me the “Fizz”. Forza 7 is a league ahead on sound still but this is close.

    Been on the live chat with Dreamhost this afternoon. They are saying the slow down is because they have been doing work on the shared server we are hosted on. Apparently they have stopped now, so we should be back up to speed. I will say, loading this page just took far too long, so I may need to contact them again. If we can keep an eye on it over the weekend, try and update this post if it is slow, or if you get any 404 or 504 errors screen grab them and post them here (again, if possible).

    For me the biggest issue is Thrones is a show that has always excelled at character development and world building, partially because that is what the books (for better and worse) focus on, with some grand spectical used fairly sparsely throughout a season, coupled with for the first few seasons you didn't know which characters where going to live and die so there was some genuine tension to the show. For me, beginning with season 6 and getting progressively worse, it's gone from character development to character types (ie good and evil, loyal and deciver etc) and too many fan favourite character have plot armour or just keep coming back because we like them (Bron I'm looking at you). It's also shifted to too much grand spectical that comes at the expense of good story telling, sure it's exciting at the time, but it rings a bit hallow. That all being said, I've still really enjoyed it and it was satisfying seeing big events in this season that have been hinted at for years now. For me the last episode was the worst of the season and perhaps the worst episode of GoT, I'm not angry about it but a bit disappointed. It just wasn't very interesting, and didn't really sit well with the basic principles of how the show has worked throughout its entire run. For a show that had me literally on the edge of my seat shouting at the TV, it's a shame to see it go out with a whimper.

    Petitions can just fuck right off. It’s all the time now. “I hate the new Star Wars. Remake it NOW.” “I hate Game Of Thrones, remake it NOW!”. Those idiots need to shut the fuck up. Their petty, entitled whining will achieve absolutely nothing. It’s done. Finished.It won’t get remade. End of story. Don’t like it? Wait for the books to get finished, if they ever do. There’s people in this world with genuine problems. Yet they’re throwing their toys out the pram, just because they’re not happy. Absolute bunch of cunts.

    I seem to remember @illdog posting about playing this, but I can't find the thread where it is. I'm a big fan of the original Megadrive game and this is basically that game but looking a bit better with added enemies and friends, online multiplayer and stuff. I don't think it's a sequel, seems more of a reboot of the first game. Anyway, it's a rouge-like if you haven't played it before and it is '90's as fuck. The music has always been great with extra funky basslines, and this one is no different. I was a bit concerned when they announced it that it would end up being shit, but a few hours of play on it so far and it's been fantastic. I'm not sure what people new to it would make of it, but for fans of the original, it's great. Level 0 is still there, so they didn't fuck that up.

    So, I just started this up. I’m actually surprised Konami got off their arse to put this together. They’ve been absolute morons for years, and done literally nothing with their numerous IPs. All they did last year was Metal Gear Survive, which I don’t even need to comment on. So I genuinely wasn’t expecting them to bother with a collection like this. Contra is getting one later in the year, and I bloody love Contra, so will naturally check that out. Anyways. How does this hold up? Pretty good, really. The first game in the series i ever played was 4, due to never owning a NES back in the day. It remains one of my favourite games of all time, from the gameplay to the gorgeous soundtrack. I didn’t think we’d see this anywhere other than a Nintendo console. But I’m very glad to be replaying it. As it’s just as brilliant now, as it was then. I never played the Megadrive version, again due to not owning one at the time. So I’m looking forward to giving that a shot, as it’s generally held in high regard. As for the rest? You’ve got all 3 of the NES games, which I will get though after 4 and Bloodlines. Two gameboy games, which don’t look especially great, but I’ll play them for completions sake. And Kid Dracula, which I have no idea if it’s any good or not. As is par for the course in these kind of collections, you can quick save your game at any time. Though on the PS4 version, you access the save menu by pressing the Share button. Which of course either takes a screenshot, or video, depending on your setting. And there’s no way of changing that to say, the Options button, or touchpad. It’s weird. Maybe they’ll sort it out in a future update perhaps. There’s no way to change button configuration either. You also get access to various promotional material/ concept art of all the games, which is a nice touch.

    This. I didn’t mention the block challenge system but it’s a excellent addition and like you say it’s adding something I didn’t know it was missing. This is the first time I’ve felt like I wanted to complete all the speed traps for example because of these. Makes it more compelling to play and there’s a decent variety to the challenges. Gives you a good excuse to use different cars too as they’re sometimes car and class specific. @spatular What was the wheel issue? This is quite arcadey so I don’t use my wheel on it I save that for Motorsport, Project Cars and Dirt Rally. I’ll give it a go and report back if you let me know what you want checking? BTW, anyone wants to add me it’s MF Nick on Xbox. Always like more names on leaderboard and I’m always up for a game on it. Haven’t got a headset yet though. Should do soon.

    FWIW, CD Project fired the idiotic social media person last year.

    The game itself isn't really grabbing my attention unfortunately. I think it might be the idea of the whole city being playable rather than following 1-2 character's stories, but this really got me intrigued... https://www.gameinformer.com/preview/2019/06/12/i-did-something-terrible-in-watch-dogs-legion I was gonna quote it, but feel like this is one to discover for yourself.

    I couldn’t find a thread for this so if there is please merge as appropriate After half a dozen game overs I finally beat the Block Man level and this game is really good. I’m a bit mixed on the modern take on it. For reference I got in with MM9 and MM10 so even though I’m not an old school fan 8-bit-ish Mega Man is what I know and like. And even though the game looks really nice and sounds really great, it didn’t quite scratch that itch in the same way as those other games did. The music is a big part of why I like this series and even though it is good in this game, it’s definitely not quite as catchy or, maybe a odd term to use when describing Mega Man. When you play these games well and you decimate the enemies, and you slip through the cracks in the obstacles and the really energetic and fiery music is playing in the background it really makes me feel like a damn superhero. This is not to say the music is bad, I quite liked it, but it didn’t have that same kick or creativity to it as MM9 or MM10. And as much as I really like the way the game looks and the fresh modern style sitting through that opening cutscene was the hardest thing in the game so far. Holy shit. However the gameplay seems all there for me and I really, really enjoyed what I played so far of it. Even if I had forgotten what it’s like to learn a Mega Man level. Painful. Fun. But a lot of just getting slaughtered very quickly and then being like “What the fuck just happened?” and then it happens a second time and you start to see the gaps in it, bit more death, bit more trying and the execution fits in and then you blow whatever the challenge was away like it was nothing and it’s awesome. The gear shift system, hmm. Undecided. At first I thought it would be there to make the game easier, but instead it’s more like an extension of abilities rather than a panic mode button. Even if you can slow down time for a few seconds, when you’re on 1-hit left, the boss is coming for you and you still don’t really know how to beat it then it didn’t seem to matter. That’s why instead of something that makes the game easier for new players, it more feels like a super ability to be used by advanced players instead. Which is fine by me because the times I used it, even if not very helpful still felt like I was cheating and would prefer not to use if it possible. Anyway, here’s me beating the Block Man stage for the first time.

    Am I the only one who thinks video game music rules? Come on, people. Since I have Tetris Effect's OST in my history I keep getting Child of Eden's in my recommendations so you can have it too: I did think about posting a shorter version but, personally, I'm a sucker for long form tunes. Someone else better put something in this thread before I just start filling it with music from SoR3.

    Just watched Godzilla vs Destoroyah and it was rad! This was the first Japanese Godzilla movie I've ever seen. How can something be so cheesy but so awesome at the same time!? Jr is the cutest lil monster and I was internally screaming "No! Leave him alone!" during his fight and was genuinely heartbroken when... Well... You know. Also found myself surprisingly heartbroken at the end for Godzilla. Big G knew he was gonna die and just wanted to see his baby boy again. I thought they were gonna do the "And then they save Godzilla and everything is ok" but nope, he just fuckin melts. This movie left me feeling real sad, but it's given me a basis on where to start watching the Godzilla movies - the Heisei period. 7 movies cant be that difficult to track down... Can they?

    I agree. I pre-order games I'm looking forward to; hyped for. I don't care whether it's manufactured or not; it is what it is. Though I do believe I'm savvy enough to see through a lot of shit and know to my own standards and if I'm making the right decision for me. I often think that the anti-hype movement is for people who haven't figured out what they actually like and keep falling for buying shitty games. I don't put myself in that group. I know what I like and I'm okay maybe making the wrong decision without making a stink, blaming everyone else. That's why I pre-order when I want something. I refuse to stop just because a load of gamers with no taste get burnt.

    Started this off on Thursday, put around 10 hours into it so far. I don’t want to spoil any of the story so I’ll keep details as vague as possible. But it’s safe to say that the game really doesn’t pull any punches at the beginning. You're put into Protagonist Amicia’s comfortable shoes almost straight away and after a brief tour around her parents Estate things start to slowly unravel. After the events at her homestead she ends up on the run with her estranged Brother Hugo. From here you travel around differing Medieval French environs trying to keep your brother safe and find a sanctuary to escape to horrors of the outside world along with meeting others who’re in just as desperate a situation as you are. In in terms of gameplay, it’s very much a stealth game mixed with light puzzle elements and a little bit of ‘the floor is lava’ thrown in for good measure. The first few chapters were quite basic really with serviceable stealth you’ve seen in countless other games - hiding in bushes, throwing objects to distract the guards and all that jazz. Things do get a little more difficult with a variety of potions thrown in that you can use against Guards along with lots of fire puzzles with the rats which then intersect with then Guards at some points to make things a little more complicated. It’s still all stuff you’ve seen before though, there’s nothing new in it at all in gameplay terms aside from the rats. The rats are incredibly cool and are easily the most distinctive part of the game but with fire sources abundant they’re never all that threatening to get through. The setting is incredible distinctive too. The grounded Medieval setting doesn’t get done an awful lot and there really aren’t too many comparisons to make, the only other games I can come up with is Vermintide and parts of The Witcher too. It it is a game that thrives on melancholy. Chapter after Chapter features tons of horrific scenes like a battlefield filled with dead soldiers or a hillside of dead pigs, it’s difficult to explain but it does well to create a constant feeling of misery, death and decay and it never really lets up, it is relentlessly miserable with only slight moments of brevity here and there. I do like it so far and I am incredibly Intrigued to see where the story goes next but I don’t love it. The stealth gameplay is often frustrating, not knowing when you’ve been spotted by enemies or not and the check pointing is poor, often putting you back at the start of an area. The voice acting is a bit wooden and I haven’t exactly wholly warmed to the characters. For a AA game from a somewhat unknown studio though it is pretty incredible what they’ve achieved with this. The Rats are a fantastic enemy that hasn’t really been done before, the graphics and lighting in particular is phenomenal and the setting feels incredibly fresh. It’s surprisingly long too, I thought it’d be finished at this far into the game but I’m not sure I’m even half way through. Lots of pics:
