  1. tbf I was extremely grumpy last night sorry. Maybe I should actually play it again to prove myself wrong.
  2. Not sure, I think the adventures have all really been terrible but with brilliant cinematics. I won't be arsed with the pvp at all, done it already, Arena was a shithouse, cant see this being much more fun apart from slightly more evenly matched (in theory) I don't really care any more as its all too easily cheesed (private alliance servers) and the tall tales have vanished. You can get Legend in a heartbeat without any of the effort or journey. Noone actually speaks in the game anymore, it's sort of soulless without that, it's just sea of shitheads. Certainly it's utter crap compared to when we played "back in the day" but you cant blame them for that, theres only so much content before you go full on pvp bastard mode. Sad but thats how I feel about it at the mo.
  3. As info this is free to keep as long as you grab it before Nov 7th on Steam. https://store.steampowered.com/sale/vermintide2giveaway Restarted this to play with friends, what a bloody great game. Even better that only one player in the party needs the DLC too!
  4. errr... same here, turned up about 3pm this afternoon...
  5. Same here, found myself in it too so very happy
  6. Modded my Ps5 controller yesterday with back paddles, my Lucio can live again.
  7. Still going strong on this, no money spent 38 proper games done and loads of old emulated stuff. I've really enjoyed it so far, not really missed anything much and had a much more varied year than usual. The closest to new games I've come is playing the SF6 and Darktide betas this month, oh and Overwatch 2 but seeing as that cost nothing and you cant play OW1 any more I'm not counting that.
  8. A lot by the look of the message board on the kickstarter. Loads of people getting non signed copies incorrectly too.
  9. Yep, Identical situation here (not Midlands based are you by any chance?)
  10. Mine's officially been "Lost in transit" so they are sending me a new one.
  11. Well, this is bloody great! I'm totally still playing like vermintide though and melee smashing everything
  12. I put a reshade mod on the PC version earlier, really makes the game look like an old vector monitor, well worth giving a try Reshade: https://reshade.me/ Preset for Tempest 4000: https://sfx.thelazy.net/games/preset/10469/
  13. Mine's still not arrived, asked for a tracking number, it's shows it got delivered to royal mail 23rd sept which was the last update
  14. I've completely 180'd on this now like an absolute idiot. Once switching to classic controls, playing on a ps4 instead of PS5 so my stick worked and doing the tutorials its proper grown on me. Loving the arcade machines in the lobby and seeing some truly bizarre characters walking round. Must have had a right grump on me last night sorry.
  15. I absolutely hate everything about this beta apart from the punching bits. It's gone from insta-buy to fuck no. To clarify I've bought a billionty SF games but absolutely fucking no way am I getting this, I cannot believe how much I hate it.
  16. Had a brilliant but frustrating night on this. Organised a big private lobby evening, had ~15-18 people joining (all friends we do things like this every Friday). We had people on different formats, about 60% xbox, 20% PC, 20% PS4/5 Some people had never played before and went through the "new player experience" as it told them to, so we set up the private lobby and got everyone in, instructed all to go open mic, open the social menu and set group chat to match instead of team. About half the people couldnt talk in the lobby chat with a message telling them to "complete the new player experience" so they could use voice coms. Some that had done the tutorial and played no games could talk, some that had played several games already couldnt. Others completely new and had done nothing could talk. We all just joined an xbox party in the end and the games themselves were brilliant fun but in game chat was a nightmare. Also does anyone know how to let people move themselves around teams/spectate etc, it was a pain as host to do every move manually myself.
  17. Still waiting here too, but our postman has told me this morning how super backed up the entire system is at the moment full stop so not expecting it to arrive in any hurry.
  18. Honestly the more you tinker with these things the easier everything gets, and I strongly recommend building your own romsets etc so you just have exactly what you want on it, all killer no filler. Happy to help if you get stuck on anything. I am playing advance wars while I cook, I love it.
  19. This has rapidly become my favourite device, I use it all the time, I had a great session at the pub yesterday afternoon
  20. I also think the Sea of Thieves adventure/tall tales trailers are particularly good at this, shows you a hook (no pun intended) and a glimpse of adventure ahead without spoiling anything at all.
  21. Although they arent really traditional HoTD style holding a gun games I love the Let's Go Jungle! titles Also Dead Storm Pirates, Transformers : Human Alliance, Luigi's Mansion are very similar and top fun. Think you'll need Teknoparrot on a PC to run those though.
