just in case not everyone is aware, Dave Perry doesn't have anything to do with Digitiser. Digitiser was an old, brilliant games "magazine" on teletext. The guy behind it went on to write for Sooty and wrote the script for the Britains Got Talent dog's film. Despite that he's still well loves because Digitiser was great, funny, and odd

Are we actually in the 90’s?

 

Also I’m pretty sure that Dave Perry pic is Digitiser having a pop at him.

That's precisely what it is.

Which is weird because Guru Larry was in the comments section congratulating him on his come back 😕

Yeah I don't see much success on his channel unless he alters his...vision shall we say. 

 

I'd like a good gaming show though. Quite like Go8bit for what it is, but something with a more dedicated tone. Actual gamers who can at least play them 🙄

@Chimay Was literally about to post this myself.

 

What a mess.

 

He's joking about his wife and daughters though surely.

 

I don't know what to believe on the internet anymore.

His sub count has more than doubled since that video went up.

 

I’ve got to hand it to him. He threw a strop on TV and disappears, then he comes back 22 years later with a piece of shit video that’s so bad and in poor taste that everyone is talking about him. We’re talking about him, eurogamer interviews him, twitter explodes, and boom - instant fan base.

 

Clever girl.

And if any good has come out of all this it's that we've been reminded of him spitting the dummy out on Gamesmaster, which was hilarious.

 

Watched it again and Diamonds "and on that BOMBSHELL" sign off makes me chuckle every time ☺️

I didn’t want to make a thread for this because I thought it might be a bit corporate shill but it must be said.

 

Origin Access Premier is genuinely fucking amazing.

 

I guess the worth of it is how much you like EA’s recent and past games but for me being a very casual FIFA player - who likes to dip a toe in every year but loses interest quite quickly - and someone who is interested in playing their AAA shooters/racers - but rarely plays them for a long period of time - the value proposition is absolutely incredible. 

 

You get all those AAA games early too (I got BFV 11 days earlier than the standard edition release) and the upcoming Anthem is a week early. You also get all their Indie titles and all the other games in the Vault too. 

 

Playing BFV got me in the mood to play some Battlefront 2, looked in the games library and downloaded it, got the 2015 game too. 

 

It really is magnificent. If you’ve got a capable PC and are interested in even one of their AAA titles it’s well worth the £15.

I couldn't sleep so I decided to start Darkest Dungeon on PS4. 

 

Great concept, but menu navigation is fucking awful and now I'm too stressed to sleep.

Regarding JRPG's (or any other type of game really):

 

Does anyone have any particular habits?

 

Whenever I play a JRPG as soon as the game gives me full control of my character or party (I'm playing Final Fantasy IX at the moment so I'll use that game and the Evil Forest as an example) I always have to stay in the first area with battles and grind at least 10 levels before carrying on.

 

It's something I've done for years.

I definitely over level, particularly early on. I think it's a hangover from old jrpgs where you'd get fucked up i the first town (Shining Force and various dungeon crawlers were bad for this), now it's more like the game not giving you a challenge for 10 hours, but I still do it.  I also make a point of killing anything that's wandering around near a town so that the people there can get out because I'M A GOD DAMN HERO

Just started Disc 2 of FFIX. Not bad considering I started the game yesterday 😅

Been playing Left 4 Dead 2 because I thought it'd be a better place to relearn mouse and keyboard.  Parts of it have aged, but that design. My god that design. It's absolutely sublime.
