Re: Games Completed 2021

I notice a lot of people have finished RE8 - has anyone played it on PS4? Just wondered if it's still worth it on that?

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I have a pro pad but use a mayflash device to play Switch on the TV using PS4 pad (prefer stick locations) but I’m pretty much unable to use my Switch in handheld mode due to terrible drift on both analogue sticks. Has anyone had any luck with repairs or are there any recommended 3rd party joy cons...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Does anyone have any experience with an adapter which would allow me to play a Wii via HDMI on a HDTV as my TV doesn't have a AV port. Any recommendations? Beware the cheapo 'HDMI adapters', I have one, it was about £15, but you get interference on the screen, diagonal lines, they're faint but irri...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

Are the Hori Split Pad Pro's worth it? They cost basically the same as a full price game, but playing FPS games in handheld is so tricky with these tiny Joycon sticks. Looking for a better option - this? Something else? Thanks!

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I loved the KMKY callback in this weeks Partridge. That guy was always one of the funniest moments of the original series.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Is the first Borderlands game still worth playing? Just the collection is cheap on Switch at the moment, and wondered if the triple pack is worth getting? The pack that doesn't include the first game is also available for less, but it's only £2 cheaper so just wondered if the first one is still wort...

Re: Monster Hunter Rise

Tried the gunlance, it's so slow! I've stuck with the sword and shield. I didn't even realise there are dozens of weapons within the main weapon types too! Currently with a bone sword and shield on the second level upgrade.

Re: Monster Hunter Rise

Thanks, yeah that is helpful, I was getting a bit bogged down with what items to take on hunts and stuff so it's good to know a lot of it isn't needed early game. Same for buddy gear etc. I stumbled across some buddy training thing earlier. I whacked 1000 coins in to it but it didn't really seem to ...

Re: Monster Hunter Rise

OK, OK, OK... I was playing tonight thinking yeah, I'm starting to get the hang of it a bit more. Still loads I'm confused about, but the actual gameplay is starting to make more sense... I'm having fun... Then I played my first online hunt. Then another. Then another. And another. This game is SO M...

I'd forgotten all about Ghost Of Tsushima to be honest, it seems to have dropped out the conversation. But you've just reminded me I want to play it!

Re: Monster Hunter Rise

Thanks all, played a bit more last night, and undertook my first 'urgent' mission, which was a bigger monster. Still feel like I'm button bashing, and when you have a larger monster on screen and 2 or 3 smaller ones it's kind of chaos and looks messy as hell. I do get the impression that this is the...

Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

I'm listening to this, a new collaboration between Nine Inch Nails and HEALTH.

"HEALTH?", you're (probably not) thinking, "Where have I heard of them before..?"

Well, they did the Max Payne 3 soundtrack years back.

Re: Monster Hunter Rise

So I've put a couple of hours in to this, mainly just the tutorial and training missions. Not taken down any big monsters yet, and it seems like it could be fun. There's just too much going on though, so much to remember and learn about! It just throws info box after info box at you. I spent almost ...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

All of Alan Partridge is on HBO Max here in the states. I've watched it before but now I'm watching it again, and it never gets old. He is a character that is truly timeless and evergreen. --Dan Ah yeah, it's still a classic. Right back from when he used to do the sports sections on The Day Today, ...
