    Favourite acting performance of all time

    Donnie Whalberg in Band of Brothers. He plays the hardworking regular joe having to deal with the shitty hand he's been given well. it comes across so naturally.

    Streets of Rage IV

    Here's a great podcast that talks about the Megadrive sound chips. https://pca.st/episode/bbf1df73-a80a-4584-9182-109fa2f7f338

    I'm trying to join you.

    This is Hip-Hop.

    The only time I had the cringe on during the Slim Shady LP and Marshall Mathers LP was when some of the guest rappers piped up. They seemed to forget that Eminem had his tongue violently in his cheek, they seemed a bit too serious.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    That's why it didn't pop up as an Arcade Archive title.
  6. I do similar. It makes me feel like I play games the same as giving a million monkeys a million controllers and brute forcing my way through.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I'm the opposite. I try and do little adjustments and over do it everytime, missing the platform by millimetres. Mario Odyssey's seemingly magnetic style jumping has spoilt me.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    it's taken me five hours to find the Hornet and then another hour to finally beat her. The scenery and enemies in the new areas I've found are beautiful. My only gripe is that I've lost many vials of life force on spikes and boiling water from the slightest of nudges on the stick. The knight goes from standing to full speed in the blink of an eye, it's especially bad after respawning all sweaty palmed after the umpteenth try at a big bad. A little bit of analog acceleration would have been nice.

    Nintendo Switch

    It's dust in the analog workings. I fixed mine with a football pump bit. Just cover the side hole, slip it under the rubber flap under the joycon stick and give it a good blow. People were suggesting a can of compressed air, but this is better for the environment and all that. Try not to do a sweaty breath. ;-P

    Nintendo Switch

    Yeah, the GC lock-on was amazing. Bloody noisy with those analog shoulder buttons though.

    Star Trek Discovery

    The trailer reminds me of Matt Le Blanc's Lost in Space film, and the Marvel style comedy gives me the same out of place vibes as the opening of The Last Jedi. I wish I'd stopped watching the first series on Netflix and upping the viewing figures.

    Nintendo Switch

    The Bluetooth chipset inside the Switch would introduce lag to the sound. The dongles based headsets that work with the PS4 and Switch use a bastardised version of the Bluetooth protocol to reduce the latency. There's also problems with the quality of the sound when the mic is enabled. https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/duplex-high-quality-audio-for-bluetooth

    Fortnite | Battle Royale - Season 5

    The Switch was really struggling to load the textures as my squad roared through the towns in a buggy. I don't think 60fps will happen.

    Fortnite | Battle Royale - Season 5

    Cheers. I gave that a go, but no joy. Will have a fiddle around tomorrow. Just realised that Fodtnite is made by the people that made Unreal Tournament. Are there any UT skins? The music on the loading screen sounds like the old sweep through the subway when starting up Unreal Tournament 99.
