  1. Awesome! My cpu, the last part, was supposed to arrive wednesday but now amazon seem to have no idea when it’s coming. Could cancel and get it from elsewhere but lots of early adopter problems being reported so maybe it’s not so bad to wait a bit. Took the ssd out of the old pc to see what would happen and it worked fine, just booted to windows 8 instead of 10, so that was nice. edit - canceled the cpu and ordered from somewhere else, £6 cheaper so thought that was a good till i realised it doesn't come with the free game pass. oh well
  2. First time I’ve got a limited run games game.
  3. Just seen one cut of the dead, been meaning to watch it for a while but I don’t like horror so kept putting it off...it’s really really good. It’s the sort of thing you don’t what to know much about it before watching, although I knew about the start and that didn’t spoil it IMO. And I was fine with the horror.
  4. Good luck with the overclocking! Yeah I’m just going to leave mine stock, or maybe try the auto overclocking they have but I’m not going to do anything fancy, already got carried away and spent more than planned on the cpu so saving some on the cooler is good. Good idea with the work ssd, I hate clogging up my home pc with work crap but it would be useful to have some stuff on there so I might do the same later
  5. that plush sheep is really cool.

    Random News II

    ^ looks cool, lots of shmups on there, i sort of want to get one but not sure how much i'd play it. the amazon.co.jp page (which is in english) for this says the japanese games will not be translated, which is unfortunate but expected. https://www.amazon.co.jp/b/ref=s9_acss_bw_cg_pdlcore_md2_w?ie=UTF8&language=en_US&node=6974564051&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-6&pf_rd_r=5E9C56GPQ4YRTFN5ESDQ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=fd46107f-cf4a-4ddc-afa0-f1ff4a29245c&pf_rd_i=6974564051
  7. cadence is really hard at the start but then can get pretty easy so the difficulty curve is odd but much easier than this... i got this after enjoying cadence, and i can't really get anywhere in it, sometimes do ok if i get a spear but still not beaten the first part/boss, and then sort of gave up on it. cool music though, i like the one that's in amplitude.
  8. nice cooler Jimbo! i'm going to live dangerously with the stock cooler, it should be fine, they're supposed to be good, just worried it might be a bit noisy. also motherboard arrived the other day - updated the bios so i'm all ready for when the cpu arrives (got an old one which doesn't support the new cpu's out of the box). oh and need to decommision the old pc to get some bits out of that.
  9. the colours are ace! but yeah i play mostly docked so not for me.
  10. yeah they're a great deal at the moment, check out the 3600 too, although there's not many reviews out yet (maybe only 1), similar price but should beat the 2700 for gaming, but less cores/threads. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3489-amd-ryzen-5-3600-cpu-review-benchmarks-vs-intel i've got most of the bits for the pc now too, just waiting on the mb and cpu, both should arrive in the next week or so.
  11. ordered a 3700x a 3600 would have been more sensible but i've been holding off upgrading for ages so went a bit crazy.

    Virtua Racing

    I’ve been trying to improve my time on the first track and got some tips from a friend/the internet - use manual gears (you don’t have to change gear on the first track anyway), slipstream the AI, switch handling to arcade (or whatever the opposite of the default is) and roll the stick around the top to make small adjustments to the steering, also don’t brake just hammer the accelerator on/off instead. I’ve gone a bit faster but am still rubbish at the last corner. Shame about no friends filter on the leaderboards.

    Virtua Racing

    I got this too, played it a load last night, really enjoyed it. Was also impressed with how smooth it is, wonder if they could do similar to stunt race fx... it’s my first time playing this so no rose tints, but yeah I won all the races last night so there isn’t much more to do except for timetrialling, I think I will play it a bit more, do some time trials and stuff. But yeah it’s good fun. edit - oh yeah the women casually walking off the track as the race starts is pretty funny, as is all the animation really.
