  1. I'd say that including the footage of the cats pre and post-killing is still quite distressing when you know what happened in between, so I would exercise caution. Netflix should've put more of warning up. The number of times I see such warnings on other stuff that doesn't end up showing you much of anything lulled me into a bit of a false sense of security and I did find myself looking away at times. Admittedly, that comes from my own sensitivities that I can't even watch some cats being stroked/happy, whilst knowing that a gruesome death is imminent. Aside from that, I so wish I didn't have any prior knowledge of the case, as I can imagine it being utterly compelling viewing if you don't. Heed the warning up thread and skip the intro to avoid spoilers. You can skip in subsequent eps, but Netflix never let you on the first ep.
  2. Astro Bot is £7.99 at Argos.
  3. No app really stays functional for that long. Anything 'side loaded' which needs updating will sometimes tell you that it needs it. Others just stop working. Within kodi, stuff stops working one day quite frequently. Just giving a firestick to a friend or relative who doesn't stay on top of that stuff will inevitably end up with it "not working anymore".
  4. Even if those sort of people were given a fully loaded firestick, maintaining it (dumping old, non-working apps and installing new ones) would be beyond them.
  5. Beyond Thunderdome is the threequel.
  6. Chip Shop in Liverpool, who were pretty big importers. Bought one used for £150 I think. Maybe mid nineties. They stocked used games too (obvs) and I eventually bought Samuari Shodown and Art of Fighting. Don't think I could afford to buy a game when I bought the console!
  7. I really should go and visit that attic... Really didn't like FF2/3, so never bothered with those. I remember my copy of FFG still had the Blockbuster sticker on it - had a mate get it for me on a visit to the States. I probably have three Street Fighters - Jap copy of 2, US copy of Turbo and I'm not sure which of Super. There's also an AES there somewhere with Art of Fighting and Samurai Shodown (but with a knackered scart lead, from what I recall).
  8. Final Fight Guy? Ouch. Think I still have that in the attic at my mum's.

    Superhot VR

    I'd wait until you sober up first.

    Superhot VR

    That is quite the revelation. Cheers! I must've glanced at that part of the tutorial and assumed it was the trigger. Strange button to stick it on.

    Superhot VR

    I didn't try and restart, but when I played Superhot, I couldn't throw anything. Didn't matter if I made a throwing motion and pressed or released the trigger at the point I wanted to throw. Just never let me. Also, it's currently too hot to play Superhot.

    Superhot VR

    The state of the PSVR version is why I was holding back on the Superhot pre-order, just in case that was nobbled as well. That was until @murray dropped in with the good news. Might buy AS if they release a patch which sorts the issues.

    Superhot VR

    I just thought that the VR game was the same, just in VR. That's not the case. You're correct, @spatular: it's the original version. Found some blurb: I'm definitely in for the VR version. Don't know how much of a saving the pre-order price is, though, or is the offer just for PS+ members (and it's always going to be 19.99)? EDIT: Signed up for 14 day PS+ trial and got it for £15.99 (and yes, have set a reminder on my phone to cancel it before it auto-renews!).

    Superhot VR

    Don't think it's Aim-compatible, is it? What does the 'Mind us Software' give you over the vanilla version?
  15. I was totally expecting a 'yep' at the end there. I assume that I could just create any old FB profile to 'like' CD Keys? How does it work?
  16. I think you're looking at around £42-£45 at the supermarkets. Tesco is £42. If I bought 2x £35 PSN credit from CD Keys for £63.78, I'd save just over six quid. However, the digital game is £50. @Gorf King I'm not on FB and I'm *assuming* the Tesco pre-order price of £42 would be the in-store price. I would have to drive there, though.
  17. Having had a look around, looks like just going to a late-night supermarket would be better value than PSN (even after factoring in CD Keys-bought credit).
  18. @Captain LeChuckYeah, it does take advantage of Pro. What's the best way of getting this now, then? Getting some top-up from CD Keys and downloading from PSN?

    Nintendo Switch

    It's a weirdly divisive machine at the moment, as the desire to want one depends so much on your likely personal usage and your previous history. - Never owned a Wii U and go portable a lot: very good - Own(ed) a Wii U and go portable a lot: pretty good - Own(ed) a Wii U and don't really go portable: not very good
  20. I get notifications whilst playing VR, but they aren't displayed on the headset. I was playing the other night and heard a few notification pings - turned out one of them was for the Resi VR update and I switched it off without checking. Didn't realise until the next day, after watching PS Experience and turning back on to get it, that I already had it downloaded.
  21. I don't play online and all I heard about it is that it doesn't really have a single-player mode to speak of (I know it technically does, but not a campaign).
  22. Re: X-Wing VR mission. I haven't yet downloaded the CoD VR freebie - however, the X-Wing one does sound more substantial. I've only read one article about it (this one), but this is a quote which hopefully suggests that it might be a bit more than a 5-10 min job: "What we play is only the first 15 minutes or so of the mission..." Disclaimer: In that article, it doesn't sound like it's on-rails, so I guess that they could've just been flying loops around, not fulfilling their objective to move things on, extending the time of the mission. It also might've ended straight after the point they reached when playing. I especially went out and bought Battlefront for a tenner and it's still sat here, sealed. But the way I look at it is I would happily pay that sum for sitting in an X-Wing in VR, even if it's only for 15 minutes. Not to mention the number of repeat plays it would get and most likely everyone I know wanting to experience it (although I'll be slightly annoyed if they end up charging a fiver if you haven't got BF!).
  23. I've got to take mine on the road tonight as well - the whole lot. Going to be a right faff!
