  1. Enjoyed the podcast @DANGERMAN and @illdog. Also enjoyed the awkward looks I got from the women leaving the yoga class near my office, as I drove past with the car windows open with Illdog speaking about masturbating into women's shoes.
  2. I really liked the look of this, but the demo controlled like a PS1 game. Hopefully they can turn it around but i'm sceptical.
  3. If I see a gold cosmonaut, I quit.
  4. I'm trying to think of an enemy in any video game that instills a sense of panic like anything gold coloured does in this.

  6. Gold ants - run like fuck
  7. It's like the video game equivalent of Sons of Anarchy. The first few seasons vary from ok to absolute pap, but from four onwards it's superb. It's just trying to convince people to invest their time to get to that point. And yeah, Playing on hard, EDF allowed you to be cocky. Playing on hardest it laughs at any attempt to be brash.
  8. I've been playing this with the kids over the weekend and can see why it's held in such high regard. It seems a bit more of a 'purer' racing experience than some of the more recent Mario Karts, though I cannot get out of the Mario muscle memory for sliding. Kids absolutely love it as well.
  9. Just realised I had some money sitting dormant in my Very account so just ordered this for the kids (they play Crash Bandicoot around their uncles and love it, so this should be a hit).
  10. Yeah - great session. Other than that mission in the valley with the fuck-ton of ants, we didn't do too badly. Loving the Python sniper rifle - shooting through two-three enemies at a time is immensely satisfying. Oh - hello gold ant, goodbye 2000 hit points.

    Slay The Spire

    That's actually a pretty cool t-shirt! Yeah, i'm all about getting as many relics as possible in the first act. Having a rough run with the Silent at the moment, rarely making it passed Act 2. Every time I get a good build together something splits it's weakness in two. Determined to get him up to Ascension 10 though.
  12. I might have a crack at this myself - how easy is it to locate the software? Last time I tried emulating an Amiga I couldn't get hold of workbench.
  13. I got a Gear VR headset when I bought my phone and have played this a few times. Not sure how it plays normally but It's crazy stressful in VR, pretty sure one of my friends came close to having a panic attack.
  14. I've been playing through the first bunch of missions on hard with the Air Raider and it's been pretty fun experimenting with the different weapon types. Ran through a few missions with pretty good Wing Diver last night and we tore through stuff. The Spitefall, Auto Cannons and a limpit gun seem to be a force to be reckoned with so far.
  15. It'd be breathtaking.
  16. 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.
  17. Do we get to see the outline of Keanu's penis?
  18. Yeah, I'm happy to go Air Raider. Can't promise I won't nuke everyone though.
  19. Play EDF5 and Slay the Spire - certainly getting my value for money out of these two. Destiny 2 - despite my objection to playing it ever again, some friends finally pressured me into picking up a cheap copy of the Forsaken DLC. After not playing for 18 months, it certainly throws a lot at you, I'm still a bit bemused by it but they seem to have made a lot of changes for the better. Particularly enjoying the new Gambit mode, even though I have an unhealthy hatred for the Gambit character. Tell me off for a disconnect? How about you fix your fucking servers first. Credit where it's due though, it's easy to forget how polished this game is - the music, the graphic design, the game world - top stuff. Want All the Zelda - something oddly comforting about knowing there are some new Zelda games on the horizon. Luigi's Mansion 3 - my kids have seen this and if I don't get it for them I'm pretty sure they'll riot. Borderlands 3 - More shootin' and lootin'. I'm a sucker for anything with an epic drop. Outer Wilds - This just looks amazing, just don't have time for it at the moment. The Outer Worlds - I keep getting this confused with the Outer Wilds, but looks fab. Void Bastards - Another for the Steam wishlist of games i'll probably pick up when they hit under a tenner. Lego Forza - One of my unexpected highlights of E3. Looks absolutely bonkers. Minecraft Dungeons – Kid friendly multiplayer Diablo? Works for me. Biomutant – This has cult classic written all over it, and it looks ace. I'm tempted to pick this up day one. Bin Watchdogs Faaaaaackin Laaandan edition. All this next-gen cock teasing. Just give us some specs and a name already. Boris Johnson. And when I say bin, I mean buried alive in landfill.
  20. You'll be alright - I think we'll just need to co-ordinate our load outs going forward. My sniper/shotgun combo has done me well so far, but i'm starting to struggle with large numbers of enemies. Only issues is it's a great combo for dealing with greys. Take gun arm out with the sniper then run in and shotgun them in the face repeatedly.
  21. I showed my kids the trailer to this.I wish I could still get that excited about things. I feel If I don't buy this for them now, it'll cause psychological/trust issues for them when they're older.
  22. To give context to the above - one of the final missions on hard was nuts. The game literally threw everything at us at once. The moment of my first death I couldn't actually see as there as there were so many enemies/fire/acid/wasp stingers on my screen. Me, @regemond and the grossly under-levelled random on out team died the moment the tadpoles swarmed. Sly, somehow managed to fly around the map for 20 minutes with around 200 enemies in tow - including a King and Queen (giant spider/ant about four times the size of a multi-story car park) and take out the anchors (enemy spawns). Pretty sure he'll be reminding us of this accomplishment for years to come though. Can't wait to try this mission on inferno. I can only assume someone from D3/Sandlot breaks into your house and assaults you as you play.

    Tales of Arise

    Yeah - this looks beautiful. Another JRPG I can start with all the best intentions of finishing but getting bored 20 hours in.
  24. Hear us as we shout at the top of our lungs and steal someone else's guns
  25. It was either that or more singing.
