  1. 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 next.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I was generally in favour of the video up there, that was until he got to Netflix and failed to bemoan the fucking "play preview" video you get when you rest on every fucking title. Maybe I'm in the minority but I tend not to enjoy the "Netflix skip to next video before the audio fucks you off" mini-game it thrusts upon me each time. My self-imposed title of the mini-game needs work I grant you that.
  6. Aye, us rllmukers from the Football League folder: myself, @sjvinnie, @Baring, @tcharliel, @Theholyhogg, @gooner4life to name a few, we very rarely build structures - usually just ramps up hills and under gunfire in an open area of course, we still rack up a fair few wins (usually at least 1 per night, each 2 hours session). Agreed though that those who can build well and quickly are always our toughest foes. With all these new modes (50 v 50, 20s, etc), I would love a "no building" mode, or even a "no jumping" mode.
  7. The gunplay is too random for my liking at times, and the incessant jumping when in close quarters is a bit rubbish too imo.
  8. Haha, such beautiful raw Dark Souls truths. I had trouble with that tree too, stupid postules on its body were hard to reach. The trek to get to it isn't that much fun either, through that swamps with the big crabs. The great thing about the Souls games is how the game really does try to stop you at every hurdle (in everything except controls and mechanics, which are spot on) so mistakes you make are very much your mistakes, not the games. That and the excellent bosses. I always hated bosses in games until the Souls games came along. Everyone is different, offers a different challenge. In Bloodborne I remember there was a big furore about a boss further on in the game - Vicar Amelia I think it was called? Yeah I did her first attempt. Easy peasy. Yet people in the Discussion thread go on about her being the hardest boss in the game. Conversely, the very first boss which people seemed to have no trouble with took me a good 6 or 7 attempts TLDR: is gud game play it ok.
  9. Haha, have you played Dark Souls 3 Mards? For me it's the toughest one (aside from Dark Souls 1 as newbie of course).
  10. Can't believe you'd turn down the first one Pants. 95 dribbling! Cor blimey.
  11. Done! Bloodborne comes on tomorrow, grab it mate, create your character and try to play the first 2-3 hours yourself, getting to grips with it. It's quite a gentle intro level if I remember correctly. If you're having trouble though with the pre-boss area let me know I'll pop on and teach you the basics. I'll be online Wednesday eve this week too.
  12. Bloodborne is one of the best single player experiences on PS4. Get it. I would add that in true Souls style the first boss can be quite the "brutal" introduction. If anyone fancies giving it a bash I would happily utilise the PS+ promotion to join them in a co-op wrecking spree.
  13. I picked this up the other week from a Facebook sale, and was thoroughly enjoying playing it (I'm still undecided if this or the recent 2D Rayman games are better - both are awesome)... that was at least until I got to level 4-2, when my disc refused to load the stage. Again and again. I tried everything under the sun (and google!) to fix it, until a close examination of the disc reveals a tiny bubble on one part of the disc, presumably the culprit. Contacted the seller but no reply... really frustrating as it's a fantastic wee game and was keen to finish it (how close to the end was I?). Not sure I can justify buying it again for £16 on eBay/CEX with a pile of shame looking on at me with puppy dog eyes.
  14. I just did some research and aye there seem to be loads of places near my work, but none near my home. C'est la vie. Grand, I'll probably post a small list up in here next week of things I'm looking to shift.
  15. Parcel tape and bubble wrap makes sense! Grand. Also, and call me stupid (go on, I dare ya!) but how to do you drop off the parcel with MyHermes? I tend to be out at work for 11 hours each weekday so I always thought that actually getting the thing to the delivery company might be an issue.
  16. How do you guys tend to send out second hand games that you've sold? I have a few that are gathering dust and thinking of selling, but unsure what to use to package it up / who to use to send!
  17. Anyone up for a bit of Fortnite squads tonight? I'll be on from 9...
  18. So close to 3 Squad wins in a row last night! Quality games nevertheless. I'll be on next Monday from 10pm if anyone might be on then.

    Count me out sorry guys, got a busy day on the 25th lined up now so can't guarantee attendance
  20. Did some research and the Elgato is good (but expensive) but there is a better option through a few different types of capture cards (I-O DATA GV-USB2, for example) in conjunction with OBS / Amarec software. I'll change the typos thread title now, oops.
  21. Aye composite, whoops. First post edited!
  22. I'm excitedly digging out my old (PAL) N64 in a few weekends time and will be playing it through my old CRT (via composite (not component - soz!)) as soon as I get the spare room changed into a man's hideout! Other than the simple method of streaming through twitch on my PS4, I have no idea how I'd go about this . Does anyone here stream N64? What kit do I need? I have tried google for answers, but most of the hits on there seem to involve an N64 and a HDTV or PC monitor so assume it'd be different for a CRT.

    I'm down for the first two February dates, aye.
  24. Yeah he's shit that Pele like.
  25. I've got Raptor arriving as a not-so-surprise gift for my birthday this weekend. The idea being me and the new-to-games gf will give it a try. At the mo we've only got a few 2-player games - Port Royal, Portal of Heroes and Cube Quest. On the look out for more 2p stuff, especially ones intended to be played in that way . Not heard of Mr Jack though - is it a similar sort of game to Raptor? Different enough to warrant a purchase?
