    Game of Thrones - No Book Chat. NONE. The Books don't exist.

    That was a laughably bad ending.

    Star Citizen - Fishing for Space Whales

    True, there’s something there a whole new developer could build on. It’ll be a shame if it all goes to waste. Even at that it may end up no better than the flawed Elite Dangerous but there’s certainly potential there.
  3. This is $12 for the Battle Edition on PC via Humble Bundle.

    Star Citizen - Fishing for Space Whales

    The foundations for Star Citizen are all in place. I’m not really sure why they haven’t built on it. There’s more there and it’s a lot more polished than I expected. If some giant publisher came in and oversaw this you’d think someone would be able to produce an Elite Dangerous type experience out of the template that’s in place. Not as bad as I thought / the internet made it out to be. Where do I sign up for the $3000 ships?
  5. It’s not really a rebuttal. I’m just saying VR has done ok and it’s slowly growing. There’s enough people out there with it to make it worthwhile for devs to continue to create games & experiences. I’m not a VR evangelist in any way but it’ll be interesting to see if they get it right, at the right price, for the masses. What we’ve had so far is clearly flawed but the PSVR sales figures show there’s clearly some interest in the format.
  6. PSVR has sold over 4 million units. There’s certainly a market out there for VR. I agree I don’t see much of a market for PC VR in years to come. It’s all about standalone and possibly PSVR 2 if Sony get the price right. If Index moves the tech forward then it’s job is done. Presumably some of it will find its way into cheaper alternatives some day. It’s going to be fascinating to see Valves games though. It certainly sounds like one of them will see the light of day anyway. VR still doesn’t have a killer app. Yes, Beat Sabre is pretty cool and I’ve had some good times with Elite Dangerous but neither are essential.
  7. True although I suspect that kind of end user may end up using HoloLens 2 rather than VR.
  8. I’ve a Rift so none of these announcements have made me get my wallet out yet but the Rift and my previously owned PSVR have totally convinced me any future that VR has is some sort of Oculus Quest type concept. Not tethered to anything, no base station requirements and no prohibitive pricing. I’m not sure how much of a high end VR market there is out there. The Vive sales figures suggests it is a very small market.
  9. If developers can make PSVR and Rift games easily adapted to use the Index controllers then there is certainly a niche to be carved out. If early adopters are relying on Valve to bring the software to make use of them then it might be a very painful wait.
  10. This has no chance of success at that price. Then again how successful do Valve want or need it to be?
  11. If this has a premium price it’ll never gain any traction. PSVR is far and away the best selling proper VR product followed by Oculus and then Vive. Obviously they are cheapest through to dearest. The market for very expensive VR headsets etc is niche to say the least. I’d suggest the one to watch for this year is the Oculus Quest. A Rift like experience that isn’t too prohibitively expensive and requires no PC is fascinating.

    The Alien films

    The 4K remaster is an excellent job. It’s clearly not a cash in. The image looks incredibly fresh. It blows my mind it’s 40 years old.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    It’s certainly a reasonable theory. It would be a surprise if both aren’t using some form of Ryzen (Zen 2) and Navi.

    Battlefield V

    It feels like I’ve well and truly reached my limit with BFV. I’ve saw the 9 maps too many times and with all the bugs & crazy fluctuations in latency I’ve gone back to BF1. I miss the new additions like squad revive but it’s nice to have so many maps to choose from and a game that simply runs a million times better.

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    Looking at the reviews collated at Metacritic from the people / publications I’ve actually heard of, hailing this as ‘a really good game’ appears to be not what they’re saying.

    Is there such a thing as a controller-friendly PC multiplayer FPS?

    L4D2 is still fairly popular online. As of an hour ago there were 9,634 playing so you'll not struggle to get a game.

    Anthem - 1.10 released 23 April: Will There Be Loot? (no)

    Same here. Enjoyed it to a certain extent but as soon as I finished the story I never played it again. There is a bit of a trend regarding EA and their big releases - Anthem, Battlefield V and Battlefront 2. They’ve all been fuck ups for various reasons. Even Apex Legends seemed to go from hero to zero rather rapidly (although it truly is a really good game).

    Now TV

    It’s still 720p and stereo to this day.

    Halloween (2018). Surprisingly Decent.

    This is a £1.99 rental on Amazon Prime right now. Having just watched it I want my money back. A poor film and I’m surprised Jamie Lee Curtis signed up for this. It’s absurdly contrived, not in the slightest scary and has a surprisingly uninteresting storyline.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    An Intel and Nvidia based console would cost more than a half decent second hand car. I’m all for something based on an i9 and an RTX 2080 ti although the price would be ‘fascinating’.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    Both are using the same AMD components so you’d presume it’ll be difficult for one to be that much more advanced than the other.
  22. I run all launchers, Windows 10 and the majority of my games off SSD’s. I never need to re-enter passwords and everything absolutely flies on my PC. It’s an absolute breath of fresh air compared to the slog of the OS and loading times on my Xbox One X.
  23. I think Steam is awesome. All the constantly updated offers, charts, reviews, curators, forums, trading cards etc adds up to a store that has some sort of depth. Clearly it has evolved over many years and as such it’s competitors have a lot of catching up to do. I don’t really care where I buy my games from though and won’t be boycotting anything on the Epic Store. Nonetheless the bare bones nature and road map that has scheduled rudimentary features far to far in the future leaves Epic unsurprisingly under fire. They’ve obviously got Tencent money behind them and Fortnite has brought in serious cash but in the long term I’d be surprised to see them genuinely be a competitor to Steam. As for launchers when my PC boots up it launches Steam, Origin and whatever Ubisofts launcher is called. I don’t seem to have any issues with them running in the background.

    Now TV

    On my 55” LG OLED the picture quality is not great. It’s not something that’ll make me turn the tv off in disgust but in 2019 it’s really not ideal. On my iPad it’s absolutely fine and more than acceptable. I’m 42 and wear glasses inconsistently. My entertainment passes expire this summer but I’ll probably not resubscribe unless CDKeys or whoever have some sort of cracking deal on.
