  1. Yep just got one of those. What a mess. I'll leave it I think.
  2. Joy cons are shocking, least reliable controllers I've ever owned. Mine have the issue that if there is literally anything between the controller and the console, it starts skipping/lagging inputs, even just your legs if you rest hands in your lap will cause this :/ I sent this to Nintendo and they returned saying there was no issue. My nephew has constant stick drifting even after 2 'repairs' from Nintendo too.
  3. See I'm not sure this is true anymore... Try doing a really slow down push and then a fast/normal forward push, the game puts it on the extreme right of slow. I can't find much consistency in this still after about 8 hours with it, might give up and trade it towards the Tony Hawk remake
  4. If open world racers aren't for you and you want just a tried and tested list of events to work through, then you can't go wrong with GRID. Dirt Rally is an incredible hardcore sim-like rally experience. And the F1 games are great too. Codemasters have been smashing it.
  5. So I did calibration, and I still can't hit anything except fast and slow shots. I really don't want to put the difficulty down because it's so fucking easy otherwise, but I have no idea how to get better too! The game does a terrible job of letting you know what you're actually doing wrong. Am I pulling back too slow? Am I transitioning too slow, or is the *only* thing measured the speed of your forward push? And if that's the case why are my results so unpredictable!? I swear I'm doing pretty much the same thing each time... It's frustrating as hell but in a way it's
  6. Yeah I'm playing on Xbox and the downswing timing is very strict! I got +9 on my first round then turned that off in the settings and got -3! I definitely want to learn to play with it on though (especially as it's going to be on when you play online matches).
  7. Oh man that's ridiculous they can announce it so late. I've pre-ordered for Xbox one. Neo Turf Masters is the perfect switch golf game anyway
  8. Got the 2019 game recently and whist it is good, the loose way you apply power is ridiculous and makes it so unfriendly to introducing a friend or family member. This looks so much better with more assistance in that regard, shame that the switch won't have the course creator at launch (hopefully patched in) or it'd be a no brainer.

    Fall Guys

    Any chance of this making it to XB1 or switch in the future? Looks great fun
  10. Also started this recently, completed the first two characters now, when you start to find chains and do massive damage in a turn it's so bloody satisfying. I managed to kill one boss's second health bar (that regenerates it's health to full when you first kill it) in one move, haha. Crazy Shiv/poison and "finisher" c-c-c-combo! Absolutely loving it, I loved the board game Dominion but my wife didn't, this is absolutely scratching that itch (Just like XCom covers my Space Hulk cravings). Going to try and complete all characters once before looking at daily challenges
  11. There's something about this simple aesthetic I find appealing (brute faces aside). Lots of high detail modern graphics games make it so confusing trying to find the important elements in the environment that you can actually interact with (Bloodborne took me about an hour to find a ladder early on). I like the high contrast colours, the way you can read a situation easily and make snap choices, and the gameplay looks fun with the grapple hook.
  12. Much better art style and colour palette than the other 343 halo games, I like it and the nades look more powerful like the old games too.
  13. I don't understand the Tie Reaper inclusion either, aren't the Reaper and Striker (with their adaptive wings) supposed to be in-atmosphere based ships?
  14. It was pure fan service, loved that bit. Maybe you were expecting this to take the piss out of the Eurovision instead of celebrating it? (That's not a slight, I bet that's how a lot of people felt going into it).
  15. Superhot VR - first time dodging a bullet like Neo Rocket League bringing back the whole same couch co op online multiplayer experience for me and my friends that I've missed since Halo 3. Ultimately getting involved in a local doubles tournament and scraping through to the semi finals Breath of the Wild - the first sandbox game (that I've played) to truly get the idea of emergent gameplay and freedom. The moment that sunk in, was when I got off the plateau and made it my personal quest to get all dem towers. Mario Odyssey - new donk city's climax
  16. Selling: 878 Vikings, played once (mint) - £55 delivered Champion of the wild 2e (mint) - £17 delivered Buying: X wing ships - Tie Strikers, Tie Reaper, Alpha Class Star Wings, Ghost, Phantom, Saw's Renegades
  17. I appreciate that @Pob, didn't know there was more to it, only played about 4 hours or so. I think I personally just prefer a series of races with clear objectives instead of all this fancy modern open world stuff. Grid 2019 is my favourite recent racer, not a popular opinion!
  18. Loved this, and it made my wife cry at 3 (three!) separate points! The music was outstanding, and the cameos from real stars, I think it really respected the Eurovision, the Russian was such a great not-really-a-villain too.
  19. It is 'spectacular' in that it's a literal spectacle, and the handling is great but there's zero tension as it has no bearing on your progress whether you come first or last (you even get exactly the same trophy icon on the map.) Might not bother some people but I lost all interest in playing after noticing that, I want to be encouraged to push myself and be rewarded for it in a racer.
  20. Only stuff I'm wanting rid of are a couple switch games (snipperclips and crash trilogy). If you are interested in dirty cash though I'd love to work something out. Edit: taken to PMs
  21. Selling - World Championship Russian Roulette - seems it's out of stock everywhere, umm £20 delivered? Wanting to buy - Any X Wing Rebel ships anyone has, please get in touch
  22. Problem is H4 and 5 were both awful in so many ways, level design, the changes to weapons, especially sticky grenades becoming one of The Stotts' little explosions, the awful stories, even the physics were worse. They both had decent marketing/hype trains to suck everyone in. I have very little faith in 343
  23. This! Just as Breath of the Wild almost feels like a sequel to Zelda 1, they need to get back to that feeling of freedom and run with it.
  24. Looks great but the more realistic it gets the more scary it gets, the less I actually want to play! But if it's got Resi 4 camp fun vibes I'm all in.
  25. I've just finished it, superb stuff. I would recommend doing the follow up stuff after the main campaign bit too, it fleshes out the story a bit further and introduces the dreaming city nicely. I kind of want to jump straight into Shadowfall but then there'll be none left :s
