Re: 4K TV thoughts?

Related, but can anyone recommend a smart TV for under 300? 4k is absolutely not necessary, just need something with netflix etc built in. The kids have finally totally broken our telly :( What size? My standard answer would be at that price I think LG would be the best bet. To be honest at any pri...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I feel bad now Ksub. I actually bought the game on your recommendation but never played it. It’s low down on the backlog but it’s there and I will play it at some point for sure.

Welcome to the forum Goodman! I have no idea what is going on in the GIFs but very impressive nonetheless🤗

Done. Easy on the eyes and the ears but less so on the thumbs.

Re: Our next podcast recording (19.1.19) - Issue 353: Gravity Rush 2

Gravity Rush 2 in many ways is superior to its predecessor. It’s visually stunning, it sounds amazing and offers more locations, gravity styles and variety. However I’m left feeling a little disappointed. Perhaps it’s the move from vita to home console which has done it a disservice. The side quest ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I tried Papers, Please last night on Vita. My god, the controls are awful. Seems interesting though. Do you think? I played a lot on iPad before playing the Vita version and thought the controls translated to the smaller screen fairly well. It can get a little cramped, but I found myself using a no...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)



Possibly a redundant selection as I hope it’ll be featured on the podcast for the game but if you ever do an elevator music or jazz special I’d love this to be included. So smarmy and slinky

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Wow!

I cannot believe it but I am currently on a train in london playing my PS4 via remote play using my vita! I can’t believe I’ve not tried it before as I always thought it needed WiFi. I suspect my data will run out in a minute or two though.

Edit:
Using my phone as hotspot

Re: The "Introduce yourself" thread

Without wanting to sound a little stupid I’m trying to work out how to upload a photo onto the forum from my iphone.

It’s presently proving less than straightforward. Any bright ideas?
I rarely access the forum from anything other than my phone.

Thanks for being honest Leon. I appreciate its not a case of “Breaking news: Contributor X has finished Gravity Rush 2 these are their thoughts verbatim”

I always try to be prompt where I can and will consider Friday my target.

Just as a rough idea what time on the 19th will you be recording? Or a better question should be what is the deadline for feedback?

I’m in a race against time to finish it. It’s not the 8 hour game I thought it was.

Re: 4K TV thoughts?

I can’t help you on the tv front but in my experience the sound quality from most flatscreen TVs is pretty abysmal and a soundbar is pretty essential. This was a good 5 years ago but we forked our for a top of the range all singing all dancing LG TV. The picture quality still is phenomenal but the s...

One thing I'll say is so far this forum seems a lot friendlier than some others I've been on in the past. I'm happy to be a part of it.
I could have sworn you’ve been contributing to old podcasts and 3 word reviews in the past few years!

Anyway welcome (back?).

I don’t know where to put this so I’ll put it here. Sound of Play is absolutely phenomenal.

Re: Resident Evil 2 (2019)

I want it to be good. Really really good. The source material is so strong that surely they can’t go wrong. I don’t think I’ll play it any time soon so by then I’ll know if it’s a stinker or not.
