It’s one euro/pound/dollar for three months for the next three days, if you open a new account.

How’s that time machine coming along, granddad? :D

I’m just assuming you’re working on a one way ticket back to 1982 here ;)

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

I'm probably the only one, but I'm really tempted by the discless XB1. That and gamepass would suit me fine, and I have a ton of digital games left over from my 360 I could play too. It's just too expensive, I guess, given the version with the disc drive is cheaper. I'd definitely think about grabb...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Slay the Spire PS4??!!

There goes next week :?


Everybody’s Golf PSVR... bound to be an upgrade option if you already have it, though running around that stupid island in VR might be too much to take.

Man, so it’s a tenner off every game purchased, not just a one-use coupon. Fortnite must be making them bottomless pits of money :o

One day I'll live in a mansion, I'll be sat at the end of a 100ft room with a big 1,000" telly balanced against the opposite wall, then you'll all learn.
This screen would be good for shmups:

Narrative game/episodic adventure fans, The Council is half off on PSN at a princely EUR 14.99. Give it a go, you won’t regret it.*

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Further proof that Alex and I are opposites in our gaming tastes - I really liked Ethan Carter. I think the only 'good' game we agree on is Salt and Sanctuary :lol: I enjoyed the ending, but would agree that KONA's ending was a let-down. That said, I find 99% of endings are a let-down, narratively s...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

There's a Judge Dredd sale on at the moment on Comixology so I bought some stuff. There's also a free Judge Death comic on there at the moment, all very 80s British: :D

I enjoyed Hawkeye Vol 1 as mentioned above. Bro!

Re: Videogame News

I also started watching Prey (2017) recently, so if rancorous blame is gonna start flying in your direction any time soon, then I might as well go all in. :P If there is one piece of advice I'd give for Prey (as it's a little ornery at the start), it's not to sweat the small stuff. There are a bunc...

I haven't seen any baseball nerds around here but [deep breath] here goes: Finished my first season (as the Padres) in OOTP, with a 92-70 record, 7 games behind the Dodgers. Beat the Cubs in the Wild Card, and then got swept 3-0 by those same Dodgers. :( All this was having used the Padres' good far...

Re: Videogame News

I do wonder how likely it is for the game to go on sale in the future, considering how it doesn't appear to have ever been part of any sale in the 18 months it's been out, and with the studio now being out of the picture I don't know who would even arrange this sort of thing behind the scenes. Hmm,...

Re: Videogame News

Sorry, badly phrased on my end! I meant, the game remains for sale at the usual outlets, it hasn't disappeared or anything. And yes, I would advise waiting for a sale - it should be noted that the game is very stealth-focused indeed, and is not the action-packed proposition seen in the video, for th...

Re: Videogame News

Ultra Ultra, a studio which grew out of ex-Hitman devs, has folded. They released Echo, a stealth game which had some really clever ideas, and whose main hook was the AI 'learning' from your own actions. So for example using the gun was extremely dangerous, as the next time the simulation reset, all...
