  1. Thanks for those above for the advice. Starlink Switch Starter Pack, with Crusher/Shredder, and Eli Arborwood (just picked randomly - hope it's good), on the way!

    Kermode loves it.
  3. https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/10/report-amazon-to-double-down-on-gaming-with-a-new-streaming-service/ https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/10/18177253/amazon-cloud-gaming-service-rumor-job-posting I guess it's not a surprise with MS and Google getting in the act. It's a rumor and nothing concrete from Amazom yet.
  4. Is this suitable for a 7 year old? My nephew got a switch for Christmas and I think he might like the toy component as well as the game. Edit: I'm thinking this starter edition: https://www.amazon.com/Starlink-Battle-Atlas-Nintendo-Switch-Starter/dp/B07DF43L23 If so, is there another ship/pilot I should get wit it?
  5. Aaaaand another one: https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/11/18179048/verizon-gaming-video-game-streaming-service-vzg-nvidia-shield-android Runs on Nvidia Shield and Android app on the way. Interestingly, what's Knack and GoW doing there? Edit: and er, RDR2, that's not on PC yet either.
  6. What the fuck is wrong with Disco?!!?

    Why do they deserve anything? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Nvidia Shield GeForce Now

    https://www.theverge.com/2018/6/5/17430532/apple-app-store-rules-valve-steam-link-game-streaming Just don't have an in-app app store that bypasses Apple's. It's the same whether you are selling games, comics, books, movies, etc. If such a streaming service was to be launched on apple devices, I would expect users to be able to subscribe to the service on their website AND via IAP (year 1 30% tax, 2 onwards 15%... seems fair IMO), and games bought via a web store to bypass the 30% tax.

    Nvidia Shield GeForce Now

    Yeah, that's true, I would not expect an Geforce Now client to be allowed at all. Wouldn't mind one for my Apple TV mind! That's a bit more likely as Apple does allow you to work around their restrictions a little bit.

    Nvidia Shield GeForce Now

    I'd love to know the behind the scenes skinny around that with Ubisoft and Capcom for AC:O and RE7. I think they're testing the waters. Also interesting that Google are also testing PC streaming Project Stream and also using AC:O. Are they related somehow?

    Nvidia Shield GeForce Now

    Switch offers Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Resident Evil 7 as streaming versions in Japan. So there is precedent.

    Realize I'm late to it but, just binged Derry Girls in two nights... loved it.

    Does't the Switch share a lot of the innards with the Nvidia Shield? I use Geforce Now a bit on my Mac and it's fantastic.
  14. @VN1X Finished it today, and I just started. Jaw on the floor with how it looks, (PS4 Pro), although it seems to play exactly like the GoW game we all know and love - I don't want to say formulaic, but certainly to a third person action/puzzle/light RPG formula we've seen a million times. Executed perfectly so far mind.
  15. For me, if I have a choice, it's ALWAYS disc for full price games. My collection of full price games right now consists of 1 (RDR) and will be sold when finished. I do not intend to play it again. If multiplayer is decent I might keep it a little longer. For digital, it needs to be an indie or cheap title or heavily discounted. My own mental price point cut-off is $25. I don't need a collection as once played, I'll never return. Ideally I'd be happy with a Playstation Now.or Xbox Game Pass type offer. Frankly I'd prefer to not even own the hardware (controller withstanding). I'm very interested in game streaming 'next-gen' after a pleasant experience with Google's Project Stream. I accept I'm an outlier in that respect.
  16. I dipped my toe into MP for an hour or so last night after finishing it. What's the co-operative mode where there are waves of AI enemies to defend against? That was fun. Edit: Looked it up... Attrition. But the guides mention two teams, I was pretty sure there was just one when playing?
  17. Well, that was just great. Loved it from start to finish. Certainly for < $4. If you haven't gotten it yet, I recommend you remedy that pronto. I'd even almost say, plan for a one session play-through, or if not one, then from about half way through (that level), because from there on in it just doesn't let up. You'll most likely want to dive back in again immediately at a higher difficulty level. Only negative points for me were one or two irritating wall jump sections, and I may be an outlier here, but some of the pilot weapons just didn't feel 'different' enough for me. Same with the Titan load-outs - I only used one or two.

    What if all games were subscriptions?

    Or utter contempt developers have for their paying customers to not update their software to run on new OS versions, so they take their money and run? There a little more nuance here that that.

    Thanks. That looks great! Kinda jealous my only experience of table-top gaming was HeroQuest with my little sister back in the day.

    Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    I was wondering is anyone has some good recommendations for a gift for my 11 year old nephew? I'm not familiar with this stuff, so though you can assist. Apparently he's getting "Chaos Space Marines" as part of his Christmas gift, so something to complement that? Edit: Ah I see @The Hierophant and I are in the same position! Will take a look at some of the replies from @And.
