    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Is the game in the RDR 2 bundle the disc version? It's not a download code right?

    The Jazz Thread

    Well if you don't know it, definitely check out Black Focus by Yussef Kamaal.

    The Jazz Thread

    That's really nice. I was about to write that it reminded me of Yussef Kamaal, before I realised who the drummer was. Do you know if there's an album coming?

    PS1 Appreciation Thread

    I played Vagrant Story on the PS1. I bought it on PSN for the PS3. I ripped it to a hacked PSP, and I have it on my PS Vita. I've tried it on all these formats and I've still never finished it. Every time I get to a different point and find that none of my weapons can touch the enemies there. It seems like a game that is almost impossible to complete without a guide, and I refuse to do that. May be worth one more try though, the atmosphere is fantastic.
  5. God, I loved Car Wars. I spent so many hours playing it. We even drew massive maps that matched the scale of some lead figures from another Mad Max-esque game, as the little paper counters were so fiddly. I also bought all the supplements and the quarterly magazine they published (Autoduel Quarterly was it?). I'm amazed nobody ever made a turn based videogame based on it.

    Do you prefer physical books or Ebooks?

    I've tried reading e-books and I just don't get the same enjoyment out of them at all, so I only read physical books. I try and be fairly ruthless about what I keep (thrillers, horror novels, and the like go to the charity shop once I've read them) but that still leaves me with a very significant collection. Luckily I recently read that growing up in a house full of books is likely to lead to higher literacy and numeracy in adulthood, so I'm doing it for the kids, honestly.

    New people: say hello here, let us know how you found rllmuk!

    That's about the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me, and I've been married for 15 years.

    It is a nice hat.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Yes. Obviously they deliberately don't define what "occasional" means, so that they can say, "Well you only have to work 60-80 hours a week for 1 month of the year. That's 'occasional'"

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I don't even work for a superstar games company and my contract does mention it. It doesn't say we will work you to death but it does say there are expectations I may occasionally be required to work outside of my normal hours.

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    Personally I don't think the Xbox product family has enough Xs in it.

    Great CD Revival

    Very nice finds. Those Esther Phillips albums especially are absolutely amazing.

    What musical hill are you prepared to die on?

    I think this would be a musical hill I'm willing to die on. The idea that Dylan can't sing is one of those popular misconceptions that rarely gets challenged. But in fact Dylan has a very good singing voice, he has a good range, and he's always in key. Obviously he affects a certain style over the top of that, but his actual singing is very tuneful.

    What musical hill are you prepared to die on?

    I think pop music is nowhere near as good (personally I think you have to go back a lot more than 20 years to find good pop music). But there's some amazing stuff being created now in jazz, funk, and reggae (and sometimes a mix of all three).

    We have a love hate relationship with Consolevania. But I forget whether we love them and they hate us, or the other way around. Welcome, anyway!
