Re: Dualshock 4 Question

At work, we use multicoloured plastic tubes for setting up PCR. Long story short, the different colours have very-slightly different physical characteristics, and respond differently to heating. It seems entirely plausible that different colour d-pad plastics could (unintentionally) have slightly, b...

Re: Videogame Deals

I second that strategy, Alex79uk.
My biggest wishlist, by far, is on Switch, to make sure I don't miss price drops on anything I'm remotely interested in.

Re: Videogame Deals

Switch eShop's Spring Sale starts today. The website is being a bit flaky about showing the list of games on sale, but the headline is over 300 games discounted (with up to 80% off). Plus next Thursday (9th April) will see some games added to the sale, including Breath Of The Wild and DKC Tropical F...

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Swapsies!

Got a couple of things that should have happened on my island overnight. Really enjoying the sense of relaxed progression that ACNH is giving me. With New Leaf I found myself trying to min-max farming of Bells and the game became a bit of a grind as a result. This time I've somewhat-consciously been...

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Swapsies!

Ooh, good tip. Thanks.

I spent 5000 miles to pay off the moving fees, but will save up for that next I think.

Re: Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Swapsies!

Things going well on Nomani San island. I had been trying vegan Animal Crossing (a la vegan Breath Of The Wild), but I quickly realised that some of the DIY recipes are locked behind collecting bugs/fish for Tom Nook very early in the game. I've now realised too that I can use a Flimsy Axe to crack ...

Re: Nioh

Anyone picked up Nioh 2?

I quite enjoyed the original, but I've not really paid much attention to the sequel, and I'm definitely not champing at the bit for it. Interested to hear from anyone on here who's playing it though.

Re: Videogame News

Sadly, I agree (not about the decline - I think it's more or less the same great/shit sandwich as ever). I can, though, see the replacement digital events doing equally well, with far less stress and expense for those putting them together. Though I actually think the final nail in the coffin is lik...

Re: What's Out This Week?

Ditto all Game Pass concerns and queries mentioned above. Also will be playing Ori this week. Also on Game Pass. Ori is possibly my most anticipated game releasing this year, and it's equally marvellous and baffling to me that I don't have to pay anything beyond a pre-existing subscription which I g...

Re: Ghost of Tsushima

Sadly, I haven't been bowled over by the inFAMOUS games (and haven't tried Sly Cooper), but this recent trailer definitely has me interested. In contrast to DomsBeard, I loved Sekiro, and am slightly worried about how much of a shadow it might cast over this for me. Going to have to marshal my expec...

Re: Videogame Deals

Thanks, ThirdMan! Deliverance certainly inspired a lot of discussion, the historical debates in particular seem important to have, and it shows the difficulty of "historical accuracy" when so much of the information we have is imperfect and heavily filtered. It's a shame that (for me) the remarks of...

Re: Videogame Deals

Epic Store free games this week are Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Aztez. Free until 20th Feb. Aztez looks pretty striking, I think. Could go for some side-scrolling beat 'em up action! Fair warning: The Kingdom Come: Deliverance devs, Warhorse Studios, and particularly the Director, Daniel Vávra, ha...

10pts to you, Domsbeard!

What feels like a relative rarity these days - a recent game, from a big publisher, that isn't on the BIG spreadsheet.

Well, it is now! :mrgreen:

Finished SteamWorld Dig earlier in the week, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It kept me entertained for around 8hrs, which was more than I expected. Can't wait to start Heist, and I even picked up Dig 2 for cheap as well. In other news, Carcassonne and Ticket To Ride are now available for free on the E...
