  1. Is that coat back in the store? I missed it last year. I don't play Warlock very often but when I do I want to look like a Ruffle-wearing Dracula-wizard motherfucker.
  2. It was being weird earlier today, was taking ages to login and then started me offline.
  3. Thanks but think I'm after the digital edition to be honest. He's pretty much your classic teenage Fifa/CoD gamer so no use for them shiny silver thingies anymore. He'd only lose them. It's mad that scalpers and bots are still ruining it for everyone a year on from launch. I just don't have the time to play browser wars all day waiting for the perfect moment to pounce.
  4. The worst has happened and one of my kids has decided that he'd like a PS5 for Christmas. I've got all the stock alert apps and twitter feeds set up but honestly it's a complete shit show and with over 20k followers on some of these accounts of course it's literally pointless trying to respond quick enough. Soon as I hit a 404 or an 'online queue' (fucking hell....) I tap out. I love my kids but not that much. What are people doing now or has everyone just given up/got one? Any tips or tricks learnt over the last year would be gratefully received.
  5. I got 4 from my first 2 runs, noticed a quest marker over Mara which was something to do with having the ascendant lens in my inventory and she gave me another 3! Think I’m already done with the lost sectors. Masks don’t interest me, the lore pages don’t really interest me and the other two guns I already have. Guess I’ll just try another 3x Atheon checkpoints and not get the Mythoclast. Again.
  6. https://www.bungie.net/en/News/Article/50752 Content vault update for year 5 tl;dr Forsaken campaign vaulted Tangled Shore vaulted (Dreaming City is staying) Harbinger dungeon vaulted Presage dungeon vaulted Year 4 seasonal activities vaulted except Battlegrounds which is staying and being integrated in to a new ‘Vangaurd Operations’ playlist along with all the strikes. All of Spider’s currency exchanges will now be with Rahool in the tower. Forsaken free for everyone in December until Feb along with a Forsaken Pack including some exotic ciphers to get some Forsaken exotics you might not have.
  7. There is a seasonal challenge due to come out in week 10 for killing things in Dreaming City that will trigger if you complete it now but you can't tick it off until week 10. I completed it in week 1 and the flashing has now been doing my nut in for 7 weeks. OCD off the scale.
  8. It really does. I honestly thought ‘I think I hate this game’ after the first 5 or 6 hours but love it now. My advice would be make a beeline for Chapter 3 (head to the port as soon as you can) and things really open up and you have so much in your arsenal to play it the way you want to play it. You can get back to the first main area and complete the orders there later if you want. When you start to interact with the world and other players structures it feels like such a living world. Logged in tonight and had 5k likes waiting for me. I fucking hate Facebook and social media in general but man that felt good.
  9. Really warmed up to this over a couple of extended sessions this weekend. A lot of the irritations of the first few hours fell away as mechanics and tools were introduced to deal with them. Grenades for BTs so I actually feel like I have a fighting chance against them and a snazzy pair of skeleton legs which gave me the ability to not totter around like 3-hour old baby fawn. Changing the way I was playing and stopping worrying about doing every single order or picking up every piece of lost cargo and just mainlining the priority orders has helped and also getting rid of the shit vehicles and just enjoying the wandering. I'm now at that point where I feel like ditching all that completely and just farming resources to build some roads and bridges. Always a sign of a good open world game when you just want to fanny about in it and not worry too much about the clock. It's such a unique experience overall. I also really love the way things can go to shit very quickly. I was having a nice and serene womble along the river and wandered in to a mule camp territory. I tried to make a run for it across a river but got in too deep just as the mules came over the rocks, I stumbled and dropped my packages just on the edge of a waterfall and watched them all float away, so I'm just chasing after them with mules up my arse, I'm trying to pick stuff up whilst trying to electrocute them whilst trying not to drown. Abrupt chaos, love it. Still not so keen on the relentless inventory management and cumbersome menus and batshit mental UI but getting used to it as I do with so many games that feel the need to introduce a new weapon or tool or new currency every five minutes without giving me a chance to try out the last one.
  10. I’ve got no fucking idea what is going on in this game. Not talking about the story, it’s Kojima, it’s bonkers, it’s fine. I mean the gameplay. I’m maybe 5-6 hours in and I just can’t make head nor tail of any of it. Why is is always raining? I’m seeing signs that say ‘shelter here’ but it just never fucking stops. How do I repel BTs? I’ve got some grenade thing which is supposed to stop them but does fuck all. They’re just annoying. What are likes and why do I need them and why am I giving them? I’ve got a ‘porter grade’ but it just gives me a score, is that all it does? The latest thing it’s asking me to do at the terminal is harvest materials and it’s asking me how much I need? For what? How do I find out how much I need? Feel like I should watch one of those ‘things I wish I’d know earlier’ videos or something but I hate doing that. I love the setting and the atmosphere and it looks absolutely remarkable but I wish the modern gaming curse of over-complexity wasn’t bashing me over the head so hard as I get older.
  11. No need to watch Torylad, Myelin is the easy going Aussie all the cool lore kids* are watching. * - That's not me by the way, I don't really care who or why I'm shooting aliens.
  12. Yeah, they are in the same patrol areas as that weeks ascendant realm so this week they are in Tangled Shore. In Thieves Landing and Soriks Cut. They are pretty easy to spot. Just go to the tangled shore and drive around and look for the little shiny orbs with a shaft of light coming out of them. Some of them are a bit out of the way (behind rocks and shit) but they are all in the main patrol zone area.
  13. Now TV won’t be in 4K, they can barely muster 1080 unless you stump up some extra cash for the extra pixels. @Hamus the only places I can see Justice League streaming in 4K is if you buy it from Apple or Rakuten
  14. Wow, ultrawide quality mode might be the way to go here. I play exclusively in a dark room on an OLED so the black bars won't be intrusive and the improved FOV looks nice. Looking forward to this, never played it and this looks like a great package and just the kind of game I'm in the mood for, I think .
  15. Telling your kids the thing they love is shit is not cool. My 8 year old loves Roblox and of course I watch him play it and wonder why on earth he would want to play it instead of BoTW but he’s 8 and he loves what he loves. You learn pretty quickly as a Dad that what you love is inherently uncool anyway. When I tried to get my eldest to listen to Eric B or Kool Keith instead of the unmitigated shit that passes for hip hop these days or when they both looked at me blankly when I tried to get them to watch Raiders instead of whatever shiny Godzilla movie is out this week. It’s still just stuff from 30 or 40 years ago that “Dad likes, the fucking loser” Just let them do their thing and support them, it’s such a minuscule section of their life. Their interactions with you and the fact that you are passionate about something, anything, will have way more impact on them than a videogame.
  16. Can't wait. Loved every second of all the previous series. Might I recommend giving all these a listen to get yourself in the mood before November. Really high production values and a focus on some insane characters that haven't appeared in the show. The episodes on Griselda Blanco are https://www.noiser.com/realnarcos
  17. Yep. For PvP, you can only play against PC players if you specifically invite, or are invited by, a PC player and then you only play in the PC pool of players. I don’t think there is a distinction between pad and K&M users on console but there never has been. I played some solo trials on Friday and won four games on the trot, thought we’ll, this is much more fun. Picked it up again Sunday afternoon and got absolutely annihilated game after game. So yeah, don’t play trials on a Sunday. I’m continually amazed at the speed at which the best PvP players can kill you. I even restarted my router as I assumed it was just down to lag. I mean, they appear on my screen and I’m dead in the time it takes me to half depress my right trigger.
  18. Camel gets it. This is a playlist I made a few years ago which is all hard funky soul. Enjoy. If you’re looking for the funkiest thing ever, this could well be it.
  19. European rollout starts in October. No date for UK but looks like back end of 2022 judging by the below plan. At least it should make it easier to find a torrent for The Batman in March. https://pressroom.warnermedia.com/us/media-release/hbo-max/hbo-max-launch-first-european-countries-october-26
  20. This has to be an IMAX Cambridge visit for me. Last thing I saw there was BR 2049 and it was truly breath taking. The fact this is going straight to streaming is a travesty.
  21. I tried it the other week (and yes, it was Venus I went to first!) and I honestly thought either my my PS5 or my eyes were broken. The ubiquity of 60fps game since I got the new consoles has ruined everything that came before. I'm sure I would get used to it but it was a real ooof, we've come a looooong way moment.
  22. It was and fingers crossed they bring it back reworked next year. As much as I love Crota's End, think it would be disappointing to have a new version of such a short raid. Would make more sense to rework that as a three-man dungeon maybe and give Kings Fall a proper lick of paint. Oh the joy of reliving the panic of it being you that gets torn between dimensions.
