Re: Games Completed 2021

Jan - Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5) Jan - Gears 5: Hivebusters (XSX) A fantastic, self-contained 3-hour Gears campaign that looks stunningly beautiful on Series X (although Gears 5 was already a looker on the older consoles so I bet this is too!). It's also free to all Game Pass Ultimate...

Re: Games of 2021: What piques your interest?

Great topic! There are quite a few games I'm really looking forward to this year across all the consoles, but to keep it brief: Halo Infinite - Xbox Series X - I'm one of the apparently weird folks that actually thought this looked alright when gameplay was shown off last year! Sure it wasn't mind-b...

Re: Games Completed 2021

Jan - Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5) A beautiful game that plays to all the strengths of the original while tightening up on some of its weaknesses and portraying a well told (if fairly derivative) story. It is much smaller in scope than the first game, but it was never meant as a full se...

Loved it. A genuine surprise even after all the critical praise.
Have had this recommended a few times now even in the last few days! Will have to check it out!

I loved my Spectrum, but just the thought of playing any Speccy game at maximum volume gives me a headache! :shock:

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

So how are people liking the PS5? A quick bullet point summary of my first few days with it: - It's huge and a bit vulgar to look at as a thing. Personal taste obviously, but I'm glad its hidden in a TV cabinet with doors when it's not in use (obviously have it wide open when playing!). - It may be...

Re: PS5 UI Questions

Not at the moment, but as it was a feature on PS4 I imagine it might return with a firmware update. I thought you could do it on PS4, so seemed particularly strange for something so simple to be missing here. Another strange decision - they give you the option to filter your library by platform, in...

PS5 UI Questions

So I'm the lucky owner a new PS5 and overall I'm really enjoying this big beautiful bastard. There is one thing really bugging me though - the UI. I work for a business where we design and build websites, web technologies etc, so while it's not my area of specialism personally I know a decent user i...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been playing Snake Pass. I was going to do Death Stranding, but my stress levels have been high so I decided on a cute platformer with a David Wise soundtrack. The music is great. The game is harder than I thought it would be but it's interesting, those snake physics. Plus, even the scary volc...
