  1. That's funny because that's sort of the point of Tristram Shandy, right. The constant shifting of focus onto some tangent or other, never really getting to the original point. It works on so many levels!
  2. I'm unapologetic about the fact that I really like The Doors, and even own a book of Jim Morrison's poetry. I don't love it but there's some nice imagery in there, and it's certainly no worse than Edgar Allen Poe's (and shares thematic similarities with that writer's poems). He probably was a twat personally, but he was backed by a great band who came up with some great tunes. Including some real epics like The End, When The Music's Over, Riders on The Storm, and L.A. Woman. I also really like the album @Art Vandelay mentioned that The Doors made after Morrison had died, where they
  3. It's worth listening to this brilliant outtake from the sessions Howling Wolf did with Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bill Wyman and others. You can just hear the reverence in Clapton's voice. (This whole session is absolutely amazing and for my money has the best version of I Ain't Superstitious there is. Love those horns!)
  4. I'd have to dig it out but there's a great clip of B. B. King talking about how much he owed to the Stones and Cream and the like, for re-introducing white Americans to the Blues. I mean we can call it cultural appropriation, but they didn't do it because they wanted to steal anything, they did it because they loved the music and wanted to play it. Their popularity gave a living to a lot of the great bluesmen, who without them would have worked and died in relative obscurity. It's worth mentioning as well that Cream especially were a really good blues band.
  5. Let's not forget the Stax house band, which was effectively Booker T & The MGs.
  6. That makes sense. Maybe this was actually the original version.
  7. @Ftsthe The RG351 is pretty good out of the box. The alternative firmwares/OSs are definitely better than the stock one but it's perfectly usable when you receive it. Obviously if you're not happy with the games that are on there you'll need some way of transferring new ones to the SD Card. Edit: Oh and welcome to the forum!
  8. That explains it. There's no way of telling from the download list. EDIT: Lunar: Silver Star Harmony was one of the games in my download list I seem to own without knowing how! Will download that now.
  9. Unfortunately I think the download list on the Vita is the only way to do it. I've been slowly working my way through it trying to catch any cross play stuff that I never downloaded to the Vita. There are games on my list that I have no recollection of buying. I'm not totally sure what Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth is but it seems I own it. Same with Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, although I've now downloaded that and am giving it a crack. It's er.... odd. There must be 8 or 10 other similarly colon laden titles on there that are not ringing any bells. I think I must have had an
  10. And now I've hit an issue where I can't update Content Manager on my PC. The latest version needs the C++ redistributable from Microsoft but the link it's trying to download it from is broken. I've tried installing it manually but it doesn't recognise it.
  11. If you've got 2FA enabled you need to generate a device password on the Sony website. Log on, navigate to your account page, select Security and then Device Setup Password. You only have to enter it once.
  12. I'd never heard of Gungnir but it was mentioned in this thread. Any opinions on whether it's worth 15 quid?
  13. I just tried to download something to the Vita and it worked OK. Well, it's downloading anyway.
  14. My reading was that if it's cross buy and you have downloaded it on your PS3/PS4, but not on your Vita you'll lose the Vita license. And vice versa I suppose but I'm less worried about the PS3 versions.
  15. I'm guessing if I spend a few minutes/hours scrolling through the download list on the vita and hitting download on everything it will trigger the required license, even if the download itself fails.
  16. I'd say you'd have to love the novel side of these games. It's full of inexplicable "game over" dead ends, and then some lengthy replays of long drawn out sections. I struggled with it, and I like visual novels.
  17. If you think about all moving images of this nature rely on your brain filling in the gaps between two static images. It's probable, if not certain, that people unable to discern the difference between 30 and 60 frames per second simply have more powerful brains. Their brains are more able to fill in these gaps. Food for thought certainly. It just so happens that I can't tell the difference between them either...
  18. I don't completely believe this rumour, but if true I had assumed it just means you wouldn't be able to buy them, rather than not being able to download the ones you already own. Although that is already a pain on the Vita. Removing access to games you paid for would be pretty shocking.
  19. I seem to remember some people in the thread enjoying it, but for me it was painfully boring. None of the quests were interesting, the combat was tiresome to the point where it became an annoyance, the locations (apart from one) were bland. I finished it but only out of pig headedness after buying it digitally at launch. The comparisons with Fallout were wildly off the mark. All in my opinion of course. The only thing I liked about it were the art nouveau-esque adverts that you saw in the loading screens. They were really nice, but probably not worth 40 quid.
  20. That might be the solution definitely (and it's certainly the more discreet of the two), but if recent history is a guide that means missing out on Playstation exclusives that I wouldn't want to miss. First world problems and all that.
  21. It's not as strong as that for me. I have nothing against the Xbox, I'm sure it's very nice, but as mentioned earlier in the thread, I just don't want more than one of them under the TV. Edit: Or in the PS5s case towering in front of it.
  22. I don't think these are necessarily contradictory. They both boil down to not really wanting an Xbox. It still won't be contradictory for me when I eventually buy an Xbox to play Fallout V, sometime in 2030. I want the game, but not necessarily the box that plays it. Like when I bought a Sega Saturn. Or the fact that I have a Netflix subscription so my kids can watch appalling American kids TV shows (and Spongebob).
  23. Yeah I'm not really buying Microsoft's cuddly persona these days. They are playing catch up, it makes sense for them to make concessions. I work with Microsoft technologies and their strategy of moving into a technical space and trying to demolish the opposition with their sheer size is still going strong (Power BI being a recent example). Anyway, I guess the proof of this pudding will be whether the next Elder Scrolls game gets a Playstation release. I will be delighted to be wrong.
