  1. Finally watched it - its well made, the sets and era placing are amazing, its well acted all round, and far far too long and aimless up until around the 1hr 40min mark. I swear if he made Dogs today it would be 3 hours long. Tarantino would be better suited to making TV series now, rather than these bloated films. I knew nothing about the film before watching, as others have said it is just his homage to Hollywood of the 60s, that ends up doing an Inglorious Basterds by re-writing history in the context it is set against.
  2. Heaven 17 at the London Roundhouse last night - playing the first two Human League albums "Reproduction" and "Travelogue" in full, and all the B-Sides (they stopped short of The Dignity of Labour though!). Ended with We don't need the facist groove thing and Temptation. The 11 year old me was very happy last night. Some pics from my potato of a phone. Visuals were done by one of the original chaps that did the original artwork, so very in-keeping with the era.
  3. GT7 should just be a native PS5 game only. It will released (no doubt) December 2022 so having a PS4 version is pointless. Concentrate on making it next gen, not all gens
  4. There is no such thing as Gran Turismo 7. They will string this out for a few more years yet, probably wedge a prologue in the middle of it too.
  5. I've had the console and controller since Feb - do you think they have long term sorted the issue, or are just replacing like-for-like?
  6. Mines never been "whisper" quiet, I'm only expecting it to get worse over time and with future sledgehammer firmware updates like the PS4 Pro did. https://www.pcmag.com/news/sony-will-optimize-the-ps5s-internal-fan-using-game-data?amp=true
  7. My controllers R2 trigger button is now totally loose with no resistance whatsoever. Great. Has anyone else gone through this?
  8. They where shit, I only used to tune in to see games actually running, beforehand it was just pictures in a magazine. Now we have Digital Foundry and YouTube
  9. I was about to say the same thing!
  10. I returned this week to play a bit more of the career mode. This game seems to suffer from the same issues from 10 years ago that they patched in and then forgot about. I played an entirely wet race (real downpours with wet tyres etc.) and guess what, every single one of the AI racers finished the race. There was also no drying line appearing either, another thing they fixed years and years ago. It's also largely uneventful unless you create the events yourself. All sound familiar? I did actually finish the story mode though - it was alright really
  11. I haven't played a COD campaign since MW2. I get lost in story based games quite easily, and I hate all the hard men dialogue in it, absolute wank.
  12. Anything with Vin Diesel cast for it. He's had his multiples of 15 minutes, now fuck off
  13. RIP Lee Scratch Perry https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/aug/29/lee-scratch-perry-visionary-master-of-reggae-dies-aged-85

    The Spurs Thread

    I'm going to have some fun later with a few friends that support the bottom team, they make no bones that they refer to us as "the scum". I wonder if "Wenger In" is trending, or the "enough is enough" phrase they love to use!
  15. Read the Helter Skelter book many moons ago, so I'm all set there
  16. I've noticed this is on Netflix now. I've a patchy love/hate opinion on Tarantino films, seeing as they are always so long, is this one worth the time investment? I've liked Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Django, but not the others (although still haven't seen the Hateful 8). Is this for me?
  17. Is there a decent video guide on how to play Cotton Reboot? Thanks
  18. At a guess - new PS5 owners who realise that installing it on their new machine is a shit show and would consume roughly 1/3 of the entire storage available. I've tried to install in on the PS5 - its horrific. Takes around 150GB to install, then there is a 91GB update file that is about 3 hours to download. Then you start the game and realise no modes are playable without further "pack" downloads, and there are numerous ones (2 MP ones and 5 texture packs for example just for MP). Delete
  19. I suppose you could say this alpha is mostly a network test, but it will have some elements of the final game on it. Oh dear, I've had better engagement out of a fart in the bath. The sound is awful (and the mockney shouting) and the gunplay feels unconnected. Reserve final purchasing judgement for the open beta experience.
  20. PlayStation Alpha starts today at 10am PT (6pm ish GMT without looking?) Download from the PS Store. It's Champion Hill mode only At least you get to try before you buy. Public Betas in September, again PlayStation owners get 2 extra days. See below After a worldwide Multiplayer Reveal on Tuesday September 7, get ready to experience the Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta! This will be held over two weekends: from Friday September 10 to Monday, September 13, and Thursday, September 16 to Monday, September 20. The first weekend – September 10 to September 13 – will be for PlayStation owners who have pre-ordered the game. The second weekend will be considered an Open Beta in its entirety for PlayStation owners. Those on other platforms will need to pre-order the game to access the first two days of the Beta (September 16 and 17), before it becomes an Open Beta for all platforms from Saturday, September 18 to Monday, September 20 at 10 AM PT.
  21. With the 60fps update I'll probably finally give this game a go. After playing From Software titles I have a bit of a short fuse with other action adventure titles with too much story, dialogue and menus etc. so let's see how this fairs.
  22. How much battery life are y'all getting out of the controller? I seem to charge it almost as much as using it, and I don't really use the adaptive trigger settings mostly. I reckon I got 6 hours out of it today before the warning appeared that battery life was low
  23. They have recently released a new gun called the TEC-9 for multiplayer and its broken the game. The weapon itself is unbalanced and completely dominates everything now, its near impossible to win against it. Great works devs!
