    Stream it to a phone or tablet via Xbox Cloud Gaming?

    I keep forgetting I can do this! I’ll have to convince my partner to go back to Shenmue 3 and he can use the big TV with the Playstation!

    Like you've never double dipped before.

    Very true but that was when I had a job and no kids and was not skint! Wah wah etc.


    What time do games become available on release day? I’m desperate to have a go of Eiyuden Chronicle Rising to keep me going until the real thing.

    Is Bugsnax suitable for a six year old? i.e. is it unduly difficult, is it excessively violent, etc? He's a very bloodthirsty six year old who loved Jurassic Park which I, somewhat negligently, let him watch a few weeks ago, but I don't want to expose him to anything too grim. TBH, I would be more bothered about the difficulty after letting him play Ori and the Blind Forest and finding it too hard for me in places, let alone him.

    I was sure I just replied to this but my post isn’t here! My six year old finds it hilarious when the body parts turn into carrots or tomatoes or what have you.

    He’s only played about half an hour, he finds it hard to control. You have to choose equipment on a wheel and he finds it tricky to pull it up and then rotate to what he wants. He struggles if for example you have to hit a bush with one thing, then swap quickly to your trap to catch the bug.
    It’s hard for him to control quite a few games properly though so it could just be him being all thumbs!

  3. Guys I bought it and I LOVE it. I spend all

    my eddies on ridiculously expensive clothes and apartments and I look so preem I’m gutted I can never really see my character because I look amazing.

    I spend most of my time spreading poison through gangs and sniping peoples heads off. Brilliant. 

    One thing I hate though is the ‘sexy’ advertising everywhere. It’s so cringeworthy and it makes me embarrassed to be playing it sometimes.

    Bodies, the excellent early 2000s series set in an Obs & Gynae ward, from Jed "Line of Duty" Mercurio is still on iplayer, for the next 20 days at least, and still holds up, if you want more of the same.

    Bodies is on Amazon Prime too. I’m very glad I had already had my children otherwise Bodies would have put me off entirely, it’s absolutely brutal. 

  5. I loved Turning Red. The scene at the start where they’re drooling over the shop assistant sent me right back to when I was 13/14 and used to go to Fantasy World every weekend as I was in love with the guy who worked there who looked like a sexy Viking. Got off with him a few years later so go me! Thinking back that’s probably slightly gross as god knows how much older than me he was. 😬 

    I thought it was really funny and it also made me cry. Perfect!

    So is Vikings or The Last Kingdom the one to watch if I've been playing Assassin's Creed and fancy a bit of Viking-on-Viking action? The two shows look so similar.

    I just finished The Last Kingdom and loved it - I watched all 4 seasons straight after each other and the new season starts next week! I might give this a go but I’m a bit vikinged out after watching so quickly.

    I don't think I've ever seen such a barren Wordle board. Well done!

    Yeah mine was much the same. Actually, it was exactly the same.

     I had hardly anything left, and with my 5th guess I thought I had it with a tricky double but no! 









  8. Is there much opportunity to sneak around in this to find alternate routes to avoid shooting loads of guys, or to sweet talk your way through missions to avoid boss fights? I do want it but I don’t actually know how much I’ll enjoy it if it is mostly shooting guys, I am bad at shooting guys. I think I am wanting this to be a bit Deus Exy and it just isn’t at all!

    As I recall, @Laine played through that quest while pregnant. FUCK. THAT!


    I'm replaying this again on PC, and in addition to my usual mods (proper blue skies in Toussaint (obvs), no dirty lens effect, and HD textures) I've installed a few choice mods. For example, all the NPCs are now completely naked, and all the women have more shapely bodies. Kidding! Though if you look at Nexus mods, those are among the most popular - WTF!?!? :lol:


    What I have done is installed a mod that actually gives Keira a more glamorous outfit for her dinner with Geralt (unlike the default that just adds sleeves to her dress), a mod that adds scabbards for every sword on the game so that NPCs don't look like their about to accidently chop their own legs off, and a Trader that has all the Gwent cards so that I can just buy them all (though I still had to win Letho just now). But the most important and best one? TROLL SUBTITLES!! I now don't have to either:


    a) Put up with not understanding a troll when speaking, or

    b) Turn on subtitles for everyone just so I can understand the trolls. 




    Edit: My troll subtitle mod subsequently turned on subtitles for everyone apart from Geralt. Had to remove the mod. :(

    Yes! That was me. Good memory! Someone had a big go at for me for spoiling the quest after I mentioned it was pretty tough as I was pregnant although I never said why. Rllmuk!

  10. Goddamit I knew I shouldn’t have left Yakuza 0 when Like A Dragon arrived on game pass but I just could not resist those sweet sweet menus. I’ve spent so long on it and still not quite finished. 

    I wonder if that’s them all away now each month? Gah!


    Also I realised I forgot to come back and say thanks - I posted aaages ago for tips on the LaD management game and once it clicked I got so into it! Did nothing but that for hours and hours. So thanks! 

  11. I’m trying to buy something from the store using £25 of credit and paying the remaining £4.99 with my monzo card. It looks ok on screen but when the confirmation comes up in the monzo app it’s asking me to approve a payment of £29.99. I don’t know if it’s a monzo quirk as it tends to show transactions other banks don’t but I really don’t want to risk it! Anyone know why it might be doing that?
