  1. This is awesome, and really reminded me of the amazing Sayonara Wild Hearts soundtrack in places.
  2. Damn that's good. I love the way he seems as shocked as the rest of us at some of the stuff he's making.
  3. Not for me. Showing as in stock in loads of places, but won't actually let you check out.
  4. It's far too early to get excited. But by christ I hope they don't fuck it up. I was tempted to make a list of all the things they could put in the game to ruin it for me, but somebody from EA might see it and mistake it for a wish list. Please don't feature Jason Lee. Please don't feature Jason Lee. Please don't feature Jason Lee...
  5. That's cool. One thing you may want to consider if you're going for realism, is to try and start the rotation just before you leave the ground/feature. I always found that starting a spin once you're in the air just made it look a little more unreal. Damnit, now I want to get back into it. I wish it was on Playstation, as my Xbox is in the wrong room and I'm ridiculously lazy.
  6. Got lucky at the end there. Would have been gutting to have done that whole race and only managed second. I've just started playing this myself. It's absolutely lovely, apart from the really sluggish menus in-game (PS5). When I want to restart a race I don't want to have to wait for the menu to finish loading before I press down and X (and then up and X again to confirm). I usually end up resuming the game by mistake, which annoys the shit out of me for some reason. Edit: Didn't Autolog used to have a companion website as well, when this originally came out? I'm sure I remember uploading a custom avatar and stuff, which would appear in the game in multiplayer mode. That was ace. I was Burt Reynolds, of course.
  7. World of Warcraft for me. I made friends in those few early years that I've been close with ever since. We're spread all over Europe, but meet up at least a couple of times a year to just talk nonsense and share some happy memories (well, we did before the dark times, before the empire). None of us have played the game for at least 10 years, but we still chat every day on our private Discord server. I owe that game a lot.
  8. Skate 3 was just a little too bloated for me, and felt a little less realistic. Not that any of them were realistic, but compared to the THPS series they were on another level. I still remember the demo for the original Skate. It was revolutionary, and I played it for so many hours. If you're playing S3 in free-play mode though, it's great. There's nothing wrong with it at all. I still play it often on my Xbox One. I do wish they'd make #2 backwards compatible, though.
  9. I did prefer 2 eventually, but the original is still an amazing game. I spent so many hours making videos. Kinda gutted that the new generation of skate games aren't scratching the itch for me.
  10. Looks nice. Prefer the white myself.
  11. I've been looking for something new for my PS5, to chill out with after work, and thinking this might be it. Are the boss fights annoyingly hard?
  12. I watched this at the weekend and really quite enjoyed it. It was gently funny and different and just kind of washed over me for 90 minutes. I thought it was really charming.
  13. That's a really fucking good batch of games you've got there.
  14. That's fucking hilarious! I mean, not for you, obviously. But in general, that's one of the funniest things I've heard in ages.
  15. Completely addicted to this, again, at the moment. My son has started playing it as well, and he experienced the gift of 80M units worth of stuff from a random stranger in the anomaly yesterday. It's fine though. I'll just keep pootling around in my Austin Metro of starships, while he's off gallivanting in his Ferrari. As before, and the time before that, too, I'm not able to do more than one or two steps in the primary missions per day, as I just get completely distracted all the time. This morning before breakfast I spent an hour just walking around a desert planet digging up dinosaur fossils. So very relaxing.
  16. Is buying old decks a thing? I had an awesome Jeff Grosso SC model, and an H-Street Danny Way deck that I adored. Plus loads of others that I don't remember. Edit: Sorry, we should move this to the proper skate thread. Videos... I've been watching a lot of Chad Caruso lately. He's not the world's most amazing skater, but he's got skills, and he's really affable. I just love his mini-ramp vids.
  17. I’m the complete opposite. If I don’t have a full complement of parasites attached by the end of a run, I feel distinctly under-dressed. Anything where the risk is just a higher chance of malignant items or harder malfunctions, etc. is an instant yes for me.
  18. I see. So... why in the PS5 thread, then?
  19. IDGI? Is the PS5 version cheaper or something?
  20. I've just started this, for probably for 5th or 6th time. I've had two longer (80+ hour) runs at it before, plus a few where I just got distracted and played other games after 10 hours or so. I'm really keen to get stuck in and explore the new content and make this my summer game. Even just getting off the first planet and heading for the stars was an absolute joy last night. I've been thinking about it all day today. Can't wait to get fully immersed.
  21. Completion, you say? After reaching the credits for the first time, you say? Hmm. Get back in there. (also, congrats on your progress so far).
  22. Finished Act 3. So good. Cut thing a little close on the boss fight… I guess it’s time to go relic hunting.
  23. It's coming in at about £1 per hour for me, currently. And I'm not done with it yet. I'd usually trade something like this once I'm done with it, but I'm not sure I can bear to part with it at the moment. I've not even started on the challenges.
