  1. Been listening to a bit of Vanden Plas recently, they've got a compilation set coming out soon and I often forget how good they are:
  2. So pleased to read people still referencing Psi-Ops. It remains one of my favourite games, it absolutely nailed the joy of mixing psychic abilities with third person shooting. It's such a shame it's never been remastered. I think Star Wars: Force Unleashed got pretty close. I'm certainly interested in this, precisely because it has the same gameplay mix as Psi-Ops. I thought Quantum Break was awful though, from the overbearing story to the completely stock and uninteresting shooting, so I'll be waiting for some reviews before buying. Fingers crossed though.
  3. Yeah, that's pretty much where I am. Having two creative forces like Cameron and Miller should pretty much guarantee it's the best Terminator film since T2 though, but that trailer did little to inspire.

    Well we received a few reports so I'd rather play it safe than risk anyone getting into trouble whilst browsing at work, especially given nobody could reasonably be expecting that type of video to pop up on their screens whilst browsing a Switch thread! No issue though, I'm just being cautious.
  5. Man alive Thor, turn it down eh, no need for that level of response at all, we're discussing a TV show not deciding which wire to cut!
  6. Following Yoñlu's suicide, this forum does receive a steady stream of visitors from Brazil and we have had a few instances of people signing up specifically to find more information about suicide.

    For anyone who is struggling with a crisis and is considering doing any sort of harm to yourself, please talk to somebody and if there is nobody in your immediate friendship or family circle you wish to speak to, here is a list of emergency / suicide support numbers you can call in your country:

    Specifically in Brazil, the following organisation is available to you:

    Centro de Valorização da Vida (http://www.cvv.org.br/) is an emotional and suicidal prevention support NGO founded in 1962 in São Paulo, Brazil, and recognized as Federal Public Utility in 1973. It offers voluntary and free support, with all communications being confidential. Contacts can be made through the phone number 141 (available 24/7), personally (in one of the 72 centres around the country), chat (via their website), VoIP (via Skype) and e-mail.


    If you would like to speak with members of this community, then we do have a thread dedicated to offering Mental Health Advice & Support, in which you will find many people who have faced similar difficulties in their own lives and will offer you the support and advice they are able.

  7. Well that's a frown turned upside down, great news.
  8. Ah that's a pity, I just saw the red ban trailer and thought it looked like a fun ride. One to put in the top corner of the screen whilst doing something else then?
  9. In truth, I do still expect MS to take the power throne next gen. They've had an entire generation on the losing end of that argument (well until X was released at least) and they know they're going to have to work very hard to convince current PS4 users to lose all their digital purchases and jump to the next Xbox. Making the next Xbox the best performing console for all third party releases is certainly one way to do that. I don't think anybody should count Sony out though. I remember when the official specs of PS4 were revealed and it was confirmed that Sony were going to go with 8GB of GDDR5 unified RAM. From what I remeber, that was where everyone thought MS were going to have a clear advantage, but Sony spun them completely around on that. In terms of tech talk, I'd find it far more interesting if the two machines had different bottles of secret sauce, with both machines having different strengths and weaknesses, it would make Digital Foundry analysis more interesting at any rate. I'll be curious if MS have a VR solution next gen. I think they'd be smart to team up with a current manufacturer like Occulus or HTC. I've been really impressed with PSVR, it's an essential part of a console for me now.
  10. Six out of the ten posts you have made on this forum, link in some way to this eneba website. You're being flagged as a spammer by multiple members but it's also fair to say that you also make legitimate contributions and most of the links to eneba are blog entries. Members are right to be cynical about your motivations for sharing so many links to the same website though, especially now that you're linking to an online store. If you wish to continue posting here, you're more than welcome to do so, but the moderation team expect to see a drastic scaling back of your links to this website. You are welcome to add an appropriate signature to your posts which links to your site and the occasional link to a blog entry is fine, but at nothing like the 60 / 40 ratio you're currently doing. Feel free to PM if you want to discuss this further.
  11. There's talk that MS have scrapped their two console approach, as it wasn't popular with developers. Just watched this video which suggests more and more evidence is beginning to pile up that the PS5 is ahead of the Scarlett in the power stakes: There's a lot of caveats of course and these are only development units, but one dev has apparently said that the next Playstation is "clearly" more powerful than Scarlett. Looks like Sony are going all in, they must be prepared to lose a mint on each system as I can't see them wanting a price difference with Microsoft. Assuming this is true, I am surprised as I had assumed that MS would be going all out to ensure their next console kept the power throne. Of course the capacity to go higher is near limitless if they're using PC parts, so knowing where the line is has to be very finely judged. Plenty more time for the pendulum to swing the other way before we get into "special sauce" talk. I'm guessing any advantage must come from the customisations made to the AMD chips as it's clear they're both building off the same base.
  12. Yeah, I'm definitely coming around to picking this up. I'm currently circling the drain with Just Cause 4 as it's all becoming a bit samey, so I'm looking for another single player game to get my teeth into. What's the structure of this one like? Is it a big sprawling open world stuffed with chores and fetch quests with a few decent story missions peppered throughout or is it set in an open world but with a guided single player campaign to follow, which you can pretty tightly follow without spending half your time driving back and forth looking for something fun to do. As you can tell, I miss the days of a straight forward level 1,2,3 experience, where the devs took you on a ten hour roller coaster, designed to ebb and flow whilst every level was crafted to bring out the best of the gameplay experience offerred. That said I enjoyed the heck out of Spiderman so a good open world game can still hit the right wing notes for me!
  13. Ah you're alright, although I'm hoping to hop off for some VR now, so I'll leave it there, but I'd ask @cohen205 to read my earlier post and take any appropriate action. Cheers all. Edit: I've spoilered the sentence in question, until there's more clarity.
  14. I haven't played the game yet but would like to in the future, so I'm not sure if it's too leading a comment or not. If the game has a single obvious person, introduced early in the game who there's obviously some question about meeting again, I'd rather we be overly careful and not spoil things, so could you maybe rephrase or edit your post. If you think it's safe to say that your comment won't lead people who are early in the game to think of one specific person, then I don't see a problem with it. Thor, if it's an obvious spoiler I get the anger, but plaese tone it down a notch, if it is a spoiler it seems to have been done carelessly rather than maliciously.
