Does anyone fancy playing Apex Legends together?

Hi everyone, hope you're doing alright! I've recently been playing a lot of Apex Legends and Season 9 has just started with the new Arena mode and the badass new character Valkyrie! While it is okay playing with random people, it would be nice to have a chat with you guys and play with some people f...

Re: Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition - Maximum Difficulty/No Rounds Lost

That's a lot of practice and dedication my dude! Nice one! Is Ken one of the more stronger/has more options characters in this game?

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Xbox Series X is also confirmed to be £449 in the UK. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-09-09-xbox-series-x-costs-gbp449-in-the-uk I've only recently ever built PCs in Japan, so only really know the price in yen, but I feel like I would struggle to build a decent PC with the same specs as the ...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

As if by magic, a proper trailer for the Series S has now also been leaked, confirming top-line specs. Actually very impressive! 1440p up to 120fps, raytracing, 512gb version of the SSD found in Series X, same seamless game switching as Series X, 4K game upscaling and video streaming. Looks like it...

Re: 437: Prince of Persia (Classic)

I have a memory of playing this as a child on my friend Ben's MS-DOS PC back in the day and all I remember is the luscious rotoscope animation and sound effects. Years later as teenagers he bought Prince of Persia Classic on the Xbox 360 and we replayed it again together and all of those childhood m...

Re: Other great video game podcast suggestions?

I do enjoy that Adam Buxton pod. Always some good ramble chats to be had. Edit: should have included the So... videogames podcast by Brad from Game Critics and his co-host Carlos. Been getting some good recs from there particularly for indie stuff. Another one that's generally pretty chilled out bu...

Re: Other great video game podcast suggestions?

If we're talking YouTube I'm a big fan of the RKG channel. It's 3 ex-IGN lads (Gav Murphy, Dan Krupa and Rory Powers) who do all sorts of videos. They started with Prepare To Try whilst still at IGN which was a really entertaining let's play of Dark Souls and they've covered most the From games now...

Re: Other great video game podcast suggestions?

How Did This Get Played? which is sort of a gaming-focused spin off of the bad movie podcast How Did This Get Made? . I find it tends to be a bit hit and miss (bad games generally aren't really as interesting as bad films imo), but with the right combination of subject and guest it can be very funn...

Heartily second all of those and would add: Dev Game Club (DGC) Two former LucasArts devs who've also worked on titles like Tomb Raider and Elder Scrolls do multi-episode in-depth analyses of classic games. Some great ones I've listened to included Deus Ex, Thief and Resident Evil. Nice chilled out...

Re: Other great video game podcast suggestions?

The Computer Game Show is probably the most obvious recommendation. It's more chatty, jokey vibe with much of the chat being around gaming news and reactions to the week in the gaming industry, plus listener feedback and questions. The actual gaming chat is sometimes a bit thin but it's very entert...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

One of the few things I do know about the ps3 architecture is that it’s a total clown fiesta. A system designed to first not need a GPU, then redesigned around a custom built GPU it didn’t get, finally bolted to an off the shelf GPU that made everything harder than it needed to be. I’m sometimes su...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

I would also like all of them to have a better wishlist system and time played tracker. Both just like Steam so that you get emailed when a game on your wishlist is on sale and just a basic time played tracker for each game. Totally down with that, a systemwide mechanic would be great, similar to S...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

Regarding my Xbox One X and BC, I think its flawless. It's kind of a catch 22 though. It's near perfect for those games which do work, but I want games on the list which aren't but they're obviously not on the list for a reason, technical maybe being one. Therefore if they start dropping the qualit...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

When playing certain (supported) Xbox and 360 games on Xbox One X you’re effectively getting a free 4K remaster. It’s incredible This is genuinely the main reason I want to get an Xbox One at some point. I'm hoping the price drops drastically once the new consoles are out, just to play upscaled 360...

Re: Features you want from the PS5 and Xbox Series X

Of course they have made many games available digitally, but having to buy them again isn't great for customers, especially when you own the originals. Out of interest Darren, have you used your Xbox One for any backwards compatible stuff? How well did the games run? Just a correction in case I'm r...

That would be great! I reckon Nintendo being Nintendo, they'll put an odd spin on it (like the achievements not being tied to your account, but the console itself or something silly like that).
