    Pact sent me a Honduran coffee called San Lorenzo, and it’s the most wonderful coffee I’ve ever had. Sadly it seems to have disappeared from their website now.
  2. I’ve finally made a start on this and it seems ok so far. I played and enjoyed 2033 on PC years ago (the one memory that’s stayed with me is annihilating the Nazi station with the mounted gun on the train - that was brilliant). I didn’t bother with Last Light because I’d sort of had my fill of the trudging through dark tunnels and having big rats jump out at you, but the prospect of leaving Moscow has me excited for this. So far, it’s very handholdy, but story wise they’ve got me intrigued (just got to the train). The dark tunnel make a nice showcase for my OLED, too.
  3. Man, I’m really enjoying Game Pass at the moment. Dead Cells is fantastic. Loaded up GTAV for the first time since I played it on PS3 6 years ago and it made me want GTA 6 badly. Been playing Tracks with my son. And I’ve got Metro Exodus downloading, as well as Morta. I was looking at the Forza Horizon 4 thread recently and back in early 2018 I posted something about which edition I’d be buying. So quaint.
  4. I can see that. And to take your examples, the TV naming is a bloody disaster and people have got about a decade of iPhone naming convention telling them that the one with an S in the name is better.
  5. Exactly. Sony's naming convention is pretty straightforward. Do you want a PS4 or a PS4 Pro? Or a PS5? No one's getting these confused, as soon as people with even a cursory interest in gaming hear it, they know a new playstation is out. Wii U caused problems because some people didn't even know it was a new console. Changing the name in the middle, from Xbox One X to Xbox Series X is nowhere near as clear. Even between X and S, it's not immediately clear which is better. No one is suggesting that significant numbers of people are going to end up with consoles they didn't intend to buy with no way of remedying the situation, just that their naming is going to create some unnecessary confusion.
  6. The thing I did which made the biggest difference to the noise my original PS4 made was forgetting to plug the fan in when I put it back together. Absolute silence for the 5 minutes it worked before shutting down to prevent overheating.
  7. I wish they'd all just hurry up with wherever this is all heading, so I can just buy one console.
  8. I’m not sure which bit of Sean’s post was a lie. I don’t work in retail but generally want shop assistants to provide me with the information to help me choose, not invariably guide me to whichever generates the most revenue.
  9. Announcing nothing as a reminder that they still exist. Still no roadmap for other devices, either.
  10. Run 4: I just beat the matey in the Clocktower. I’m glad there was a little passage section between the clock tower and actually fighting him as after the clocktower I had about 200HP. Bit worried about the next bit. Clocktower felt much harder than the previous sections.
  11. What are you basing this on, exactly? I’ve seen parents in Game not know which version of a game to buy because they don’t know what console their kid owns (Xbox One or Xbox 360).
  12. I think you’re underestimating how easy it is to make these kinds of mistakes when you honestly don’t care about something. I recently bought a mattress and when it came time to order couldn’t remember whether it was the mirapocket 1000 or pocket 1000 I had tried in the shop, because I don’t care about mattresses and didn’t know the one I hadn’t tried even existed when it came time to order. There’s probably someone on a bed forum somewhere arguing that no one is possibly stupid enough to mix up mirapocket with pocket. The idea that someone could never mix up Series X with One X, when you don’t care about video games and are only half listening to your irritating child anyway, doesn’t strike me as reasonable.
  13. I think it's probably my second favourite, after Asylum.
  14. I disagree with the idea that Guerrilla had leave a feature out for whatever reason but this has been completely dismissed and the solution found by some bloke on a forum and is just “make your game a bit uglier,” as if density scaling isn’t something they considered (and already have in the game).
