    Set up 1 - Main Living Room. 4k tv, One X, Pro and Switch Set up 2 - Spare room, Xbox One OG, 360, Pi and PS3 & Most importantly a wheel setup Both got surround sound setups because I fucking love that shit. Adds so much to programmes, films and games IMO. Only budget setups but wipe the floor with even really expensive soundbars in my experience (bought 1 and heard a couple others). Definitely the way to go if you have the space and patience to set them up. Yes I’m very lucky and have a understanding partner. She doesn’t let me play on them as much as I’d like though. Can’t have it all I guess.

    My gaming space is a proper man cave, a room built on to the side of the house that doubles as a Mac based recording studio. Although, if I'm honest, my gaming space 90% of the time is wherever I happen to be with the old Switcheroo. God, I love that console.

    Bit of a cheat this one. My housemate sold off his Switch and all his games, except the limited edition of Bayonetta 2 because neither cex or Game would take it. He offered it to me but just taking it felt wrong, so I bought the Fist of the North Star game to trade him for it It's all unopened, including the code for the first game. I'm not sure when I'm going to play it but it seemed a shame not to take up the offer

    Before we go any further down this dark path, can I informally ask that the comic/super hero stuff gets calmed down a bit? I’m not saying this as a mod, just as someone who uses the forum. I expect it in relevant threads, I don’t really expect it to crop up basically everywhere.

    @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.

    Less than an hour in and from a gameplay perspective this is already deeper than any of the previous games. The levelling up system alone reminds me of FF X. You can block! You can dodge😳 There is something a bit off about the powers though. Which might be indicative of the One player experience. Your AI teammates don't automatically use their abilities, so the revamped combo system has to be done manually and it is a bit clunky as a result. Obviously not an issue in the slightest for those playing with others. Other than that, it is pretty good so far. At the first available option, which isn't right away, my team now consists of: Star Lord Hulk Drax Wolverine

    Vanquish was £3.74 on Xbox’s super sale and I only have the PS3 version so this was well worth it. One of the best action games I’ve ever played. They also have Bayonetta on there for £5 something but I have the disc in the other room and I’m not that lazy Though I did consider it

    Played for around an hour and a half last night so these are very early impressions... This isn't me... I'd not really paid much attention to this game up until release so it was a surprise you can pick the sex of your character (I went female, like always), obviously your first task amounts to a tutorial mission to get you accustomed to the controls, which are exactly the same as any other FPS. The game looks nice, you can tell it's just 1080p and it has no HDR but it does the job, I'm on an X and it feels silky smooth... To be honest I was pretty shocked just how quick everything feels, it's been a few years since I played Doom 2016 but you can so tell that team had a hand in this. After the relatively brief tutorial you're give access to this bad boy... Driving feels nice and heavy, pretty similar to Mad Max which should come as no surprise really as it's by the same team. I've been given three missions to meet different factions and then left to my own devices, I didn't manage to play much more so I can't comment on if the open world is gated off in some way or if you can just go where you'd like. The biggest stand out for me so far is just how good the actual shooting feels, the guns feel chunky with some nice feedback... Oh and it's pretty funny too, it's already made me chuckle a few times. So far, so good then.

    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.

    Started this earlier, wasn't quite sure what to expect as its been quite some time since I've played a peripheral based rhythm action game but everything I saw from this gave me Donky Konga GCN vibes rather than Guitar Hero/Rock Band vibes so I decided it was different enough and been enough time since my foray into those band-based titles that I'd give this a shot. At £90 it isn't cheap for the drum & game bundle, and then there's lots of DLC to buy on the eShop if you so choose. For your money you get 74 songs which are a mix of Anime soundtracks, storied Bandi-Namco franchises like Ridge Racer, Pac-Man etc. and then there's a few Anime theme tracks along with some K-Pop, some classical music and some Nintendo medleys (my personal favourite being Jump Up Super Star which is just a delight every single time), there's even the theme from Moana on there too - but sung in Japanese. There's two main modes in the game - Taiko Mode and Party mode. Taiko mode just has you playing through the songs on offer in the soundtrack with up to 4 players, you can choose 4 different difficulties in Easy, Normal, Hard and Master and play through the song using the Drum controller. The two main notes are 'Don' and 'Ka' the former uses the face of the drum whereas the latter uses the edge, sometimes you're required to hit both sticks onto the drum at the same time in these big notes (can't remember the name of them now) and when a mallet icon, balloon icon or long yellow bar appears on screen you drum roll as hard as you can for the number of beats required or as long as the yellow bar lasts. Party mode is much stranger. It features a variety of party games like Fireworks, Baseball, Tower Climb, Jump Rope etc. That all have you and 3 others (CPU controlled if you don't have many real life friends interested in playing something like this like myself) competing and racking up some kind of score. I have been pleasantly surprised by how zany some of the mini-games are already but a little disappointed at the same time that you can basically game the system by just drumming repeatedly and pretty much get through most mini-games with a decent score. Still quite a bit of fun and a good workout at times though and it'll be an absolute blast after a few drinks with a bunch of mates I'm sure. The Drum itself is very good quality wise. It's made by HORI and although it's all plastic it feels well put together, my only real complaint with it is that despite the rubber feet it does tend to slip around a bit when you're deep in the middle of a song - the instruction booklet recommends you remedy this with two small water bottles placed in a convenient holder underneath, I've also had a few hits not register early on but that doesn't seem to be so much of an issue now I've broke it in so to speak. The drumsticks as well are made from plastic but have a nice weighty feel and heft to them that makes them feel like they're sturdy and not going to snap or break on you when you're drumming away hard. As this only has a local multiplayer mode and no online this may put some folks off (I believe the PS4 version has an online Ghost Mode) but with all the various difficulty modes in Taiko mode to experiment with, an extensive track list and some bonkers - albeit flawed - minigames to have fun with its a decent package overall. If you're into rhythm games (particularly peripheral based ones) and are looking for one with a lot of charm and depth to its play then I can definitely recommend this wholeheartedly, I do think the drum is essential though as the motion controls are less than ideal from what I've heard.

    Started this last night, have probably put around 6-7 hours into it so far. I'm not going to go into too much detail as folks have already put up detailed impressions of their time with the demos. But, yeah, seeing as my expectations for this were pretty much 0 and I'd not played any of the pre-release demos, alphas etc. I have been pleasantly surprised. The graphics are what I noticed first really, it looks absolutely phenomenal. The voice acting and motion capture for all the characters just feels so incredibly lavish as well, all the performances are amazing and the motion capture just looks and sounds like one of the most realistic I've ever experienced. The hub world is reminiscent of Destiny's Tower but it feels much more Biowarey than I expected it too, it feels like much more of a real, living, breathing place than the lobby-esque workmanlike aesthetic of the Tower. Throughout the first few missions more and more areas of the Fort are introduced to you and you discover new people and places to see like a lovely plaza and bar. What has surprised me the most about the base is probably the NPC conversations though, you have multiple people to speak to after pretty much every mission you finish and talking to these different people to get to know them is a real joy, it doesn't feel like some throwaway exposition dump like in Destiny and other GaaS shooters, you do feel these folks have personalities. The 'action' part of the game I just felt like I was playing an Iron Man game really, there's not really any other way I can describe it. It felt fucking amazing to jump of of the cliff face outside the fort and just engage the thrusters for the first time. Combat itself feels way better than I expected too, although it has been very easy so far with me dying once and my shield being depleted on only 1 other occasion, all the other missions I've played have been a breeze. I have had quite a few bugs. Textures popping in some places - one time I was flying around and a whole environment was pretty much white and then spawned in around me making me crash -the helmet of your character not appearing on the cutscene that plays just before you go on a mission, a weird one where the subtitle box from previous dialogue stays on the screen and won't go away. I've also had quite a struggle getting it to run smoothly on my PC - which is surprising - I had to lookup a guide to get the settings right earlier and have actually managed to get a mostly stable 60fps with few dropped frames - before I was getting as low as 30fps in firefights. I actually haven't had the game kick me out at all though which is surprising, the servers and matchmaking side of things has seemed uber stable so far apart from the long loading times to get into a mission. So yeah. I like it and I want to play more. Apparently after 10 missions there's some kind of Wall that you have to grind to get up, but I'm not there yet so just enjoying the journey so far. It definitely feels way more Bioware than I was expecting and way more distinct thanks to the flight aspect. Lots of pics:

    This hasn't reviewed amazingly, and while I loved Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon, I couldn't muster to energy to do the same stuff again in far Cry 4 and 5. In fact I booted up Far Cry 4 towards the end of last year because I wanted a nonsense fps to play, and I still couldn't. I ended up doing the pacifist ending, then booted it back up and ran about it bit, then realised I just couldn't be arsed For whatever reason the more I've seen of Far Cry New Dawn the more I've been interested in it. I think knowing that it's shorter is a big part of it, like I said I loved 3 but the amount of time I spent with it, doing the same routine over and over did start to drag by the final island, although at the time I put that down to me doing everything before moving the story on. New Dawn looks amazing, maybe a bit too amazing. I'm playing it on high settings (it can go to ultra) on a GTX 1080 at 1080p, and I still get framerate drops to 50 every now and then. It's less when there's lots of combat, more when I'm in dense woodland with lots of mist and fog. Which I mention because it is ridiculously dense, so dense I've been bitten by snakes I couldn't see, and have to rely on watching when and where my A.I. teammate starts screaming and where she's shooting at. I'm impressed with how it looks though, I had this pegged as a bit half-arsed, and granted it could be I didn't play 5, but the colour and the environments look great Gameplay wise it's kind of just Far Cry. It's not as reliant on taking back encampments as the old games, although there are still some, and there's no radio towers. You're still randomly getting attacked by animals, and there's still a skill tree, you're still playing good guys vs bad guys. Enemies take more damage before they go down than I remember, with some enemies having a 2nd health bar, possibly a 3rd but I've not seen that yet. You're kind of dumped out in to the open world pretty early, you have a story mission but it's far enough across the map that you can't help but do other things along the way. A lot of the side stuff involves you stopping trucks, be it for all important ethanol or less important humans, chasing them down isn't fun, being in the right place to stand in the road and shotgun the driver in the face is fun, that said I've not managed to get an ethanol truck yet. Beyond that, I've just been rescuing people by killing bad guys I'm really enjoying it though, played for hours tonight and I've still not got halfway to the first proper story mission. Before I go there I've got some treasure to find, an ally to recruit, then a bunch of buildings to kill everyone in, then I'll do the thing I've been asked to do

    Been on a Switch spending spree this week. God Eater 3 is a review code so technically didn't buy it, and I backed the Legrand Leagacy kickstarter a couple years ago but never got round to playing it. I actually own it on PC because of kickstarter, but it was on sale so picked it up on Switch. DragonFangZ is a pretty cool Rouge Like with some of the worst localisation I've seen in a game, I'm sure it was done in Google translate. Phantasy Star is Phantasy Star.

    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.

    @OCH I wouldn't disagree about GotG2, I will about Ragnarok though. I think they'd painted Thor's character into a corner personality wise between the two avengers films and the two Thor movies. Ragnarok was a complete tonal 180, but I don't think that was a bad thing. Perhaps it helped that I'm a big fan of the directors other works and the humorous appeals to me, but I loved it. Like @RikSP says, I think they found the nuance with Thor in IW, but over all I think it's improved his character dramatically.
