  1. I played a fair bit of H1Z1 battle royale at the weekend, and I really rather like it. It doesn't look that impressive (the display for me had Brightness at default a "0" - raising this to 50 makes a world of difference btw) but it plays an excellent game. The only downsides to it imo are that on Duos and Squads, when a team-mate dies they die - no "going down" and being able to be revived. That's a bit of a shame. But the gunplay is good, sniping isn't too OP, and I like the military crate find/reward mechanic (essentially rewards you to keep searching the environment/buildings for crates, or
  2. Aye you're in vin. Just 5 spaces left. PMs sent to all posted as wanting in. Once you've paid I'll bolden your name in the first post so it's all confirmed and so I can keep track. Once everyone's paid up am hoping to do the draw weekend of 9th/10th June... the g/f has agreed to facilitate as drawmaster although I highly suspect the bikini apparel is out.
  3. 12 spots left. If anyone sees any of the usual suspects online direct them this aways.
  4. I came in here to say "Ticket to Ride", but with that gone I'd recommend Century (Golem edition is particularly bright and pretty), Sheriff of Nottingham is great for all ages too (bluffing game which is just a "fun" not-so-serious game).
  5. Cheers all for social media work! List updated. 15 spaces left, shall send out blanket PMs once list is full up.
  6. Odds that Battlefield 5 has a Battle Royale mode this year too? Gotta be high ish.
  7. Sounds good, I'll deffo be giving it a go tomorrow.
  8. Hogg of course the team selection is random! That's what a sweepstake is . Draw will be video form.
  9. Lawro aka @pompey88 has handed over the reigns to myself this year, so thought I'd get it up nice and early. First 32 to confirm below that they're in are guaranteed a team. It's £10 for a team, with lots of prizes on offer below! Some kind of video taped draw will be arranged, probably with the help of a glamorous assistant. The Prizes World Champions 1st Place: £50 (Joffy, France) Always the bridesmaid 2nd Place: £20 (Steely, Croatia) Lucy Bronze 3rd Place: £10 (GrahamDunn, Belgium) The Tris3d Award™ Team wit
  10. Cheers for the headsup Charlie, I'll be on Thursday eve if anyone fancies trying it then.
  11. Haha, I should have reloaded myself, but I don't like to do that. Gotta roll with the punches I guess. I only wanted to reload once I'd read he had his own mission. I also completely forgot about (and therefore killed) the person requiring the meds. I am a terrible heroine.
  12. Just to echo the above poster, this game is bloody ace and I genuinely feel guilt at not buying it new instead of getting it second hand. Easily the best single player experience I've had for a good long while. Currently mopping up all the crew around the station whilst dodging operators, stunning & hacking those I have time to deal with. Then on with what I assume to be the last few missions. Not really spoilers as it's a name, but did anyone else accidentally kill Igwe in a really obvious stupid way (when you first meet him)?
  13. Agreed, get used to rolling with DK and then jumping, as you're gonna need that "speed roll jump" skill a fair bit later on in the game. Also one other thing peeps should be aware of control wise is you can speed roll "off an edge" and press jump really late (in midair), and it'll still register as a jump. I know this is a legacy move from DKC 1-3 on the SNES but the game doesn't tell you it's in there. Very useful for getting low lying letters / jigsaw pieces. I completed this very recently on Wii U (hard mode aside!), collecting every jigsaw and letter piece into the process, and
  14. I still plan to get FIFA 19 Hogg so maybe we can reconvene for Clubs games in September. If it's trash I'll get rid soon after again, no loss because it retains it's price pretty well. I'm done with '18 though, genuinely not missed it at all since I binned it, how people have the patience for it I just don't know. Have played some other great games I probably wouldn't have had the time for otherwise. Hopefully H1Z1 will be a decent Battle Royale game we can all get on with!
  15. That's great to hear I might get him back later Aye I completely agree that all his best abilities are throwaway ones, I seem to be one of the few in our group who can manage cards effectively - every scenario so far I have been alive by the end in terms of exhaustion. Agreed re: exposure at the front, especially as we're not rolling with a Brute... I tend to try and make sure I do my heroic dash into rooms when I'm at full health and/or with a shield buff from myself or the Tinkerer, and/or where I use my multiple disarm attack. It is truly fantastic though, even just
  16. I'm playing this on Friday evening, and then Monday lunchtime. Double BH weekend session GET! Our party of Cragheart, Spellweaker, Scoundrel and Tinkerer have undertaken around 8 scenarios, successfully completing 5 of them. My char (Cragheart) is literally one scenario away from completing his personal objective, and (presumably, newbie here!) I'll take a new character. Will be sad to let the big man go though, I have come to love his adaptability. Fantastic game though, easily the best legacy game I've ever played. Fully deserving of it's rep.

    Steak

    As it's getting into steak season, and I for one am hankering after some grill-based action, what recipes/methods do people follow when frying a steak on a standard hob? And for the more occasional steak-er like myself, what supermarkets/cuts of beef are recommended to go alongside your method?
  18. Exactly why I'm a bit excited about it, the building is so integral to Fortnite but I just don't think it's for me. Speed builders are ten a penny, hats off to them they're very good at it, I just want a BR game with just the guns, on PS4. So well up for this. Cheers charlie for the link, I've signed up. If I don't get into the Closed Beta then I'm all in for the Open Beta.
  19. Any of you boys getting on the H1Z1 battle royale beta when it drops? Coming to PS4 in mid May. Think I'm a bit burned out by Fortnite. That and being perpetually shite at the building!
  20. That packet puzzles me greatly @tcharliel - the text suggests they're German in origin and the picture looks like dog food. That said, I'm still interested. Where did you find them?
  21. I started playing this last week on PS4 - it's really rather special isn't it? It easily wins the "hardest game on normal difficulty" award for a single-player in the last few years, but that is part of it's charm - you are meant to feel vulnerable, you are not meant to fight everything you see, you do need to play is slow and steady. It fills an itch I last felt playing Alien Isolation. The unlock skill tree is frankly overwhelming and is begging out for replaying through a second time. I've just left the Arboretum, ran away from you know what and eager to see where it'll take me
  22. Sad news, but like others I can't remember the last thing I bought from them. Actually tell a lie, I do: Dark Souls 2: Sotfs on PS4, preowned about 3 years back in the Maidenhead branch. I worry for Argos on the high street too, I read an article recently that they make a loss for 6 months or the year or so, only actually making money the rest of the year thanks to Christmas/sales. Surely that ain't sustainable in the long run.
  23. Nice work Al! FG can also be cheesed a bit as sometimes he gets stuck behind one or two of the gravestones. Can't remember the next boss, it might be BSB (non spoilers acronym there) which is a great fight. Lemme know if you/anyone needs a hand with something Bloodborne-y, I haven't restarted yet but the beginning I can happily blitz through.
  24. When you come online Ricky, check if me, Vinnie, tcharliel or Baring are in a party - if so jump in. We play a few nights a week usually.
