Re: The Division 2

Considering how many of their games I never quite get around to finishing, I have a lot of time for Ubisoft games in general. There is a bit of a habit of launching games a little early (presumably to meet shareholder deadlines) but the post launch support is very good with a balance of QoL improvem...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Something I've been dipping into recently has been Wargroove . 16 bit style presentation of a tactical rpg - I want to love it. But I can't quite work out the mechanics. The game usefully tells you how much of an impact you'll make on the enemy and how much damage they'll do in return but it seems i...

Re: You've been left an arcade by your long lost uncle!

The original Star Wars vector cabinets are notoriously hard to keep running, you just can’t get the parts anymore. No one really makes that kind of monitor now, the tech left the cathode ray behind many years ago. I think the full service manuals can be found online as pdf though, so at least you c...

Re: You've been left an arcade by your long lost uncle!

Charity Streams

Just had a look on the forums and couldn't find any threads regarding to charity streams so I'm starting something as an ongoing place to put details of any charity livestreams etc. To start us off, anyone interested in supporting a friend of mine who has decided to start off his first stream on Twi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Another of the irregular board games entries - yesterday marks the first time that I have ever played Game Of Life . For one of the Hasbro/MB Games 80s/90's era games this isn't too bad. There is actually a little bit of strategy to it and isn't just a rush to the end (though that is a largely viabl...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Most of my points in Outer Worlds are into long guns and stealth, I’ve treated all the melee stuff (both attack and defence) as dump stat, and I’ve got the bare minimum into the skills that affect companions to unlock their secondary talents and no more. Melee does seem like it would be totally via...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've pretty much been using Game Pass to try out the games that I am interested in but wouldn't necessarily have gone out to bought and that's everything from What Remains Of Edith Finch and The Gardens Below to Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4 it does mean a few more games sitting staring at me - Creatu...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

As it's leaving Game Pass at the end of October, I decided to give Thief of Thieves a go last night. It seems to be about the worlds sassiest, slowest and and most unreliable thief. Sure she can pick a lock in seconds but fails to notice the bodyguard on the balcony returning into the office where s...

Re: Your most played game this year

Little disappointed that I can't find a particular place where this is tracked in just one place - I'm having to bounce around between achievement summaries for individual games and sites like TrueAchievements - And some of that is inaccurate if I've been playing the game longer than this year. Howe...

Re: Destiny 2

That does seem odd.

Only thing I can think of is that, because of Sony's ongoing reluctance to enable cross play, whether there was something you had to do before loading into Destiny 2 with a Cross Save character.

Hope you either weren't too far into the game, or better, find a way to make it work

Re: Destiny 2

Almost certainly! Cross Save I think is reached via bungie.net (or the destiny app if you have that) rather than through the game so check before proceeding with the game itself (it does warn you of this as you boot it up)

Good luck!

I will raise my hand here and say that I did have the list of achievements to hand for this. You monster! :lol: Guilty as charged - you've seen my handle right? :twisted: I stand by that decision though. To have tracked down some of the missable achievements would have meant spending a lot longer m...

For ease, I'm linking in this article which explains what is and isn't available https://www.gamesradar.com/uk/destiny-2-new-light/ I hadn't realised that the year two raids were gated That Cross Save is a thing means that you can transfer characters across different platforms - which is pretty cool...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Sorry - I know I said no shop talk but realised I did miss one thing I wanted to add. I think some of the confusion in the thread around video stuffs is that everyone has been talking about 'Scart' SCART is a type of connector whereas component and composite are different video formats. A SCART conn...

The great thing about video standards is that there are so many to pick from!
