Re: Geek Fitness

I've decided I want to try and start running to raise my level of fitness. For years I've had toe problems which have prevented it, but the surgery I had last year has *finally* healed properly. I'm no spring chicken, I'm 38 and not in the best of shape at all, so I'm not going to immediately dive ...

Re: Geek Fitness

I'm not sure which I'll do to be honest. I would like to do one of the less popular ones, as a crowded event like the London marathon is not something that I would want to do. Good luck on the half. In my experience, you'll run your best time at the event, as you'll get caught up with the moment. Y...

Re: Geek Fitness

Which marathon are you thinking of doing?

I'm doing my first half in 2 weeks time at Eastbourne. Been training for it since early December, steadily building up the Sunday long runs, with various easy and workout runs in the week. Going pretty well thus far, so fingers crossed for the day itself.

Good old Nintendo don't make that clear on the box. Typical.

Re: Geek Fitness

I think they use the old Wiimote & Nunchuck combo?

I've not done too much workout stuff in the game itself but absolutely love the Fit Meter Challenges (they take a certain kind of mindset but totally work for me).

Re: Geek Fitness

I'd probably drop back to a shorter distance like 10K and work on improving that if you haven't done a half marathon distance in while. Did you do any training prior to the race or did you just go for it on the day?

Re: The 3DS / Nintendo Direct Thread

Yeah, the wait is very frustrating but I do know that the devs are working really hard to get the game out to the rest of the world on the Nintendo platforms. I'll definitely get the Wii U version once it launches.

Yep. That and people on Twitter. I've had to bite my tongue so much over the last year it's ridiculous.

I've had a great time with the Xbox One so far, whereas the PS4 has been a miserable experience for me. This seems to be the opposite of everyone else. :(

Re: Videogame News

Let's face it: if Sony had announced that they had secured RotTR as an "exclusive" in the way MS had done, I suspect the reaction would have been very different.

Re: Videogame News

No issue for me as I was always going to get the game on the Xbox One anyway. It just means I won't really be able to talk about the game with my PS4-only owning friends.

Re: Geek Fitness

I have a few people in mind who inspired me to do this but honestly, seeing Plexshaw at Eurogamer last year really motivated me. Firstly, well done on what you've accomplished - the difference is plain to see in the photos and nothing short of astonishing. I knew from Facebook posts etc that you ha...

PlayStation Plus (and the PS Store in general)

With Cross Buy, it's incorrectly assumed that all games released on multiple systems at the same time must adhere to this rule. In an odd way, I'm kind of glad some devs aren't doing this.

In the short term, it obviously will do. But, as Stex points says, I don't think this whole "Wait until it's cheap/free with PS+ or GwG" mentality is going to help anyone in the long term.

Yeah, that's a TellTale screw up rather than anything else. They pissed off a lot of people by doing that.

Re: PlayStation Plus (and the PS Store in general)

It was only recently released (in fact, the discount price it what we should have had as the original launch price but PSN EU fucked it up), so it's unlikely that it will go PS+ straight away. I also agree with supporting smaller devs by actually paying for the game rather than just relying on Sony ...

Man, it feels like only yesterday that I was standing in a Tokyo arcade watching people play Ultra Street Fighter IV. Wait - that's because I was! :D

Having fun over there I assume Paul? :D Yes, very much so. Went to see Mount Fuji today - it was pissing it down so the view wasn't great but we saw enough of it to appreciate just how spectacular it is.
