Re: Videogame Deals

Any one else playing/sometimes plays Idle Champions, there is a sale on right now on several items. Good chance to pick up some cheap Familiars. Also there is an additional familiar were all the money goes to Red Nose Day (US). Seems to be active on both Steam and XBOX.

Re: Videogame News

Anyone watching the EA Play conference tonight? I've missed proper E3 this year. I know there are still conferences, but I've even missed the thread with all the times and stuff and everyone talking about it. Hope it's back as normal next year :( Will probably catch up with it after the fact but lo...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

That's the compromise I believe, unless they end up with 3 consoles! It will have all the HDR and Ray Tracing of the Series X, but will max out at 1080P (though a 4K TV can upsacle that of course) I think it will only have 4-5 TFLOPS in comparison to the 10 of the PS5 and 12 of the Series X.

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Indeed. A lot is based on assumptions right now of course, although everything is pointing to XBOX Series X being the cheaper given the complicated Sony storage solution and MS happy to take a hit to gain market share, but I think there are some happy folks sitting in boardrooms right now.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

I'll be going all digital this time. I haven't bought a physical game on the PS4 since...I genuinely don't know if I've bought one. I'm all digital on everything. Ring Fit Adventure is a great game but I can't be arsed taking launch BotW out of the Switch to play it. Given how low the barrier to en...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

If these rumours are even close to true this is going to be one crazy generation opening!

I mean I'll be Series X personally, but for anyone happy living with 1080P gaming it will be a no brainer.

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Impressive display of games! As I've stated before I'll only be getting the XOBX at launch, and maybe only, but some of those exclusive games look drop dead gorgeous. Ray-Tracing it Hitman is a thing of beauty, though I'll assume that's cross platform as I believe both consoles to be comparable in R...

Re: The Sony news and discussion thread

Just seen an article that the price of the PS5 is looking like its going to be £599 from some leak on Amazon. If that's correct that's a touch higher then many were hoping I feel like. Now it could be some special edition of course...

Rail: Shadow Legends

I realise mobile game can be rather marmite like but was wondering if there are any others playing this game? It's one of the very few mobile games that have managed to grab me, it's basically this and Idle Champions. Was wondering if there were enough of us for a C&R Clan on there?

GOG have almost 30 games available for free right now as part of the Stay At Home initiative. Some real classics in there too. Worth a look for you PC gamers:

Re: Videogame News

If there's no BC on the PS5 besides the usual AAA stuff I've already played, I'm going full XBSX in the first instance. I would be really pissed off if my Ketsui and Battle Garegga purchases didn't carry over and I refuse to own a PS4 and PS5 in 2020. I'd be far more interested in keeping my M2 STG...

Assassins Creed Odyssey has a free trial weekend on PS4 (and other platforms I guess).
Yup, same on XBOX, plus you can buy it at a pretty good discount too if it gets your hooks into you.

Good to hear, you guys deserve it! Although these days I find my time such that I rarely get to listen to more than the monthly update podcast, but that alone is worth $2 to me so I'm a happy camper :D

Re: Our Patreon

Finally got myself over to the $2 setup. Sorry for the few months of missed income guys! Hopefully people have been understanding and you've managed to increase your in-comings, if I still earnt what I did back in England you'd be getting more ;)

Re: Gaming firsts /most influential games

I like this idea! Elite (BBC Micro) Not only an epic game, but the first game I ever double dipped on, on the same system no-less! It started with the tape version, took an age to load and if I recall you had to load from tape each time you landed/launched from a space station. However the game felt...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Well the current events haven't changed my life much since we were out of season here on the island so work hadn't really started yet, but that hasn't stopped me from sinking a whole bunch more ours into Stellaris. Playing via XBOX Ultimate on PC so I get to play the fully updated version of the gam...
