    Apex Legends

    What’s included with the battle pass doesn’t look that great imo, although I don’t understand what some of it is, and I probably won’t finish it, but I’ll get it as I’ve played loads and not spent anything on it so far.

    There’s been some great soundtracks recently imo, xenoblade 2, persona 5 and the rhythm action games, and agree with automata. Katamari remake too, assuming it has the original soundtrack, but I guess that’s cheating.

    Trials Rising

    i was getting annoyed with the grind but then somehow unlocked some new challenges that paid out lots of xp so got the next lot of tracks unlocked quicker than expected...fingers crossed that was the worst of it.

    Trials Rising

    I’m really torn on this now, at first I thought it was great, as already said, the tracks seem fun and inventive. the trials university is great, in the actual game it’s all great. the ubi stuff annoyed me at the start but now it’s started to give me people off my friends lists ghosts to race I quite like it. Apparently it might allow cross platform leaderboards too but not sure if that’s working yet/or even right at all. the loot box and levelling up stuff I can ignore as long as it’s unintrusive Which it was at the start, there’s been a few times you have to level up to unlock stuff but it’s not been too bad... but now at level 52, after 1h+ I’m on level 54 and I have to get to level 58 to unlock the next set of tracks, which seems a bit rediculous, I’ve been doing stuff like forward backward rolls to meet contracts and get bonus xp for a bit but now it’s getting pretty boring and I’m getting a bit fed up with it. I don’t like how all the tracks are on a map either, they’re all over the place, it’s a mess of icons, just give me a list of tracks to play. Oh the loading is a bit slow too, not too bad especially as you might retry one track over and over - but for one specific type of event where you have to do 3 tracks in a row and if you fail you go back to the first track - here it’s really really bad. so yeah I’m in a bad mood with it at the moment but hopefully it’ll win me over again because the actual gameplay is great, I agree with all the good stuff mfnick is saying about it really. what are your ubi usernames? Think mine is msm13579. We could add each other, see if the leaderboard thing works eventually? (I’m on PS4) oh oh and if you have ubi points from before 2017 they might expire soon, I spent about 500 on a load of rubbish as to not waste them.

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    ^ sorry for being a bit defensive there, what i'm saying probably does backup the ffb complaints, but i guess what i'm also saying is that isn't affecting my enjoyment of the game. the more i play it the more i like it, the handling is great, quite a step up over the first game i think. there's some wider dirt stages too so you can throw the car around a bit which is great fun. of course it's totally infuriatingly difficult too, the tarmac stage in the rain is nuts, i had to wack the abs on max and was still struggling. the connecting to racenet was loads better today too so maybe they've fixed that.

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    Yeah totally agree about the always online. just want to clarify my thoughts on the ffb though, I don’t think it’s broken, the important effects that help you catch slides and stuff like that are there and working fine. Could it be better, yes it could and probably should be, and yeah it does seem like some effect are missing (but much less important ones, imo anyway, and I can’t remember if the first one had these either), but how it is now wouldn’t put me off playing it with a wheel at all, it’s great fun. Imo anyway. I’ve not read any of this reddit/twitter stuff.

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    yeah i'm trying to remember how the force feedback was in the original, it's probably pretty similar tbh, it's not bad, just missing some of the more fun effects, the important stuff is there anway. i had a go of the rallycross because it was a daily challenge, i really need a map in that mode, or do a quick practice first because i don't know where the track goes, they're pretty short so easy to learn though i guess. and there are unfortunately problems with the single player career mode struff needing connection to racenet to work, and the connection to racenet seems a bit flakey also wanted to post this, just because

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    So it’s a rally game, it’s very much like the first dirt rally, it’s pretty difficult, mainly because of the narrow roads. Was as thinking maybe it’s a bit easier than the first game, then did a stage in a rear wheel drive car, in the rain at night. It’s still really hard. the handling seems really good, bit better than the first one maybe, but I’ve only played with the slow cars and a rear wheel drive car, which I didn’t use much in the first game so hard to tell yet. Initial impressions of the pace notes are pretty good. the force feedback is alright, not great, the fun rumbling effects are missing it seems, but the important grip/handling info is there, if a bit weak. Hopefully this will be improved. Not played either game much with a pad but the first seemed really difficult, this seemed much better. Graphics are are pretty good, even on my old pc, nice foliage, nice weather effects. On one hand I’m not too keen on the 2.0 thing, but on the other hand it’s a nod to one of the best games ever so I’ll let it pass. theres also Rallycross, I sort of don’t care about this so will only try it when I’ve run out of rallying to do. so yeah it’s really good, if you like sort of realistic rally games with narrow tracks that are really difficult, this is the game for you! oh yeah it’s out Tuesday unless you buy the fancy version, I sort of don’t like it when they do that, and wasn’t really bothered about getting it early, but wanted the souped up dirt 1 dlc tracksthat come with it, and the price for the pc version was not so bad.

    Trials Rising

    Yeah it’s a cool game! You’re probably not bothered but there’s a quick tutorial on a bunny hop here from about 3:40
  14. maybe not the best comparison but it gives you an idea: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1060-6GB-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti/3639vs3649 oh yeah and what about this one DANGERMAN was telling me i should buy (and i probably should because it's a great deal) can't really vouch for the quality of stuff like the company, motherboard/psu etc mind: https://www.awd-it.co.uk/awd-460x-rgb-ryzen-5-2600-3.9ghz-gtx-1070-8gb-ddr5-vr-gaming-pc.html

    Trials Rising

    Yeah it's quite a technical game of moving the rider forward/back at the right times and balancing the throttle to get over the jumps and up steep hils. Was there a tutorial? I can't explain it very well but maybe try a quick lean right/left or visa versa just before a jump...a YouTube tutorial would probably be more help than me sorry.

    Trials Rising

    positive feedback about the beta, like above, meant i didn't bother with it, will just get the full game, most likely on ps4, although i think i prefer the xbox pad for trials.

    DiRT Rally 2.0

    Yeah I wanted it on PS4 really but the price difference was too much, although physical standard version on consoles is not too bad. Would probably have gone for that if the dlc was just cars, but I wanted the extra tracks, shame it seems like they might be taking the Mick a bit with the dlc prices. Cdkeys sorted me out with another code to upgrade it to the deluxe version though so all good on that front

    DiRT Rally 2.0

    got the deluxe version on steam from cdkeys but it looks like thay sent me a code for the normal version as i can't play it yet and the dlc isn't showing up on steam

    Tetris 99

    i signed up to nintendo online just to play this. maybe a bad idea as i don't really like playing this sort of thing online, but 99 player tetris seems crazy and i wanted to try it out. it seems really random, i guess like a lot of online stuff, but it's pretty fun, already played quite a bit. and maybe even more dr mario.
  20. yeah i mean you can always pay more to get something better so it depends what you want to spend. i'd go for a ryzen 2600, but that'll add ~£60, and more/faster ram. think i've seen AMD 580 graphics cards (edit - these are a bit more power hungry iirc so might need to check power supply is still ok) for about the same price as you have the 1050ti on hotukdeals - that would be a good upgrade for a similar price, otherwise it's a 1060 for ~ £200. i don't really know anything about the motherboards/power supply. my ~7 year old case had a ssd mount so you might not need the ssd bracket. good luck! these look like a good deal: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/awd-stronghold-2600-six-core-39ghz-rx-580-8gb-desktop-gaming-pc-49994-awdit-3176575

    2019 Expenditure

    good info, cheers! yeah the dlc could be annoying, i'm still getting the game but maybe not bother with the dlc or get it when it's on sale or something.
  22. its my favourite 2d zelda (and first zelda), but it's been a long time so interesting to see how it holds up. there's some obtuse puzzles in there too, wonder if they'll change anything.

    oh, just wondered where you ordered this? not seen it that cheap on console. i'll be getting it but not decided which version yet.
