    Lol, not sure what he was thinking there. Well i got a msg back from seller and said i can have a refund or swap for his used copy which he said is fine. Not sure what to do on it as tracks play fine besides some mild distortion on neurotic behaviour track. Not sure if its worth just keeping it or pay postage fee and swap for his. Got a couple more underground resistance LP'S coming from discogs anytime now as played once, mint. Fingers crossed ????

    Just had a new sealed copy of psyche/bfc Elements through the post today from a seller on discogs Some of Carl Craigs earliest and best work. Looking forward to listening through the 3 xlps and first record is warped and 2nd has chips on outer edge. Pathetic. Think im gonna have to start buying 2nd hand copies of discogs as near mint so can ask the buyer before hand of condition. Starting to loose faith in quality control of new records these day. Plus they aint cheap either so expect them to be perfect.

    Good choice ???? Only had mine a month but think its great value for money compared to some of the other turntables out there. Had a Project Genie before the Esprit and ended up selling it as the constant issues with static and the felt mat sticking to records annoyed me along with having to manually switch the belt between 33/45 all the time. Plus the Genie never had a dust cover either. The esprit just allows you to slip on a record and forget about the rest. Hope you enjoy your venture back into the world of vinyl and be prepared to have a empty wallet, especially on discogs lol

    For £400 mark i would look no furthur than the Project Carbon Esprit SB. has a Acrylic Platter so dont get any issues with static. Also comes with a built in speedbox so can easily switch between 33/45 with a press of a button. And comes with a 2M red cartridge so offers alot for your money.

    Nintendo Wii U

    Good price, you won't regret it. One of the best remasters i seen to date. Looks fantastic running at 1080p and is a joy to play through it again after 10 years (cant believe it was that long ago). My most favourite zelda game to date to

    Downloaded mario galaxy 2 last night. Was looking at buying it anyway and couldnt find it any cheaper 2nd hand than £15. So £8.99 is a bargin. Played the first level and despite the drop in resolution compare to wii u, plays great and look forward to many more hours with it

    I said OLD playbook when Nintendo were king of the castle. Not Segas recent Playbook where it says "lets Make everyone of our franchises as shit as possible and run them into the ground until everyone hates us!"

    Nintendo Wii U

    Couldnt agree more. Usually when i get in from work i couldnt be bothered with gaming and wait for me days of. With wii u, cant wait to sit down and have a quick half hour bash on something while missus is watching some crap on tv. shame when ever i mention it to anyone else they dont really know much about Wii U and how it differs from Wii. Which goes to show there is something a miss with Nintendos marketing. True and it will keep them a float for now. But they will only hemorrhage money for so long before calling it a day. And with the amount of software stores are stocking compared to other consoles it does look worrying times atm for Wii U. Heres hoping 2015 and the new Zelda/Starfox will change peoples minds.

    Nintendo Wii U

    Agreed, love it that much i sold my PS4 the other week. PS4 hasnt really kept my interest since i had it at launch except for a couple of titles Where with the wii u i've been nothing but wowed over with the sheer quality of titles at its disposal and how perfectly it fits into the living room as a all in one entertainment system for everyone. Only downside is the amount of hanmering your wallet will take picking up games Plus with missing out on Wii their is plenty i want want to pick up on Wii to. Skyward sword, No more heroes, mario galaxy but to name a few. Nintendo really do deserve to suceed with wii u but have a underlying feeling that it will end up same way as Dreamcast . Well thats unless Nintendo start ramping up the wii u marketing and start showing the general public what it can really do. Tbh with reading through Console Wars book atm you cant help but think this is 90s all over again but with the tables turned. Nintendo could with taking a leaf out of Segas old playbook on tips how to get wii u back on track.

    Tell me about it. Been searching for wind waker hi and low and managed to blag a buy now one that cropped up on ebay this morning at £38. Picked up resi revelations at game for £15 yesterday. Even looking round town now, no shop has more than a handful of wii u titles.

    Amazes me how well Nintendos wii u titles hold there price. Still struggling to find a place to pick wind waker up for under 40 sheets and this title is a year old now. Love this console but as someone said earlier in the thread, it is like a treasure hunt trying to source games for it.

    Nintendo Wii U

    Purchased a wii u for xmas and been having a right blast on it. It has impressed me a lot more than the PS4 ever has which has been gathering dust atm. As for the system, lovely and the game pad display is a lot better than I thought I would be and comes in handy when the kids or me want a quick blast on something whilst someone else is watching something on tv. Been playing a lot of mario kart which is hands down one of the best looking games I've ever seen and has impressed me more than anything I witnessed on PS4. The art style, background animation, lighting and 60fps just make it one beautiful game to look at. Haven't enjoyed a mario kart this much since my N64 days. Tried Nintendoland which is a suprise hit with the kids and had a great laugh with the luigi mansion mini game and zelda one. Also been playing abit of Mario 3D world which is sublime and a master class how platformers should be done. Having a blast with the wii U upto yet and can't fault it when it comes to playing either by yourself or if you have a few people round you, it really does come into its own. Really does take you on a trip down memory lane and make you remember what made you fall in love with gaming in the first place (and no it wasn't realism and violence)

    Anyone managed to stream past 720p on netflix app? No problems with ps4 streaming super hd on netflix but wii u isnt having anything past 730p
  16. Managed to get in there this morning and filled out at 8.00am. Fingers crossed i hear back something tomorrow. If not theirs no chance.

    Still waiting on delivery, but at a quarter of the price is the official one really that much better? What about the remote?

    Nintendo Wii U

    Got a wii u party bundle and mario kart wrapped up ready for chrimbo for the whole family. Best combination for controllers as far as i can see is pick up 2 sets of motion plus and nunchucks along with a wii u pro controller and should be sorted on all ends then for some quality 4 player action and party games. Picked up a 3rd party motion plus/nunchuck on ebay for £12. They get decent reviews so will be worth a punt over the expensive official one.

    Alien: Isolation

    Just come across a game cripling bug which wouldnt load up mission 16 correctly and lost use of right analogue stick. Only way round it was to delete save data and start mission 15 again and dont save on anesidora. How was this not picked up during qa as a fair few people have had this issue by what i seen. Been a great game upto yet but has taken some of my enjoyment out of it coming across this bug. Even after an hour set back, still one of the most enjoyable and atmospheric games ive come across in my 25 years of gaming. Shame it will come to an end very soon

    Alien: Isolation

    Hands down one of the most impressive games ive played in a long time. They pretty much nailed everything when it comes to this game. Visuals, outstanding. they have nailed the lighting/shadowing and have captured the world of alien perfectly. I remember the days of only dreaming about a alien game looking this good and its finally here Been playing through this with my bose AE2 headphones and what a joy it has been upto yet. From the soundtrack to the aliens pounding footsteps to him scurrying around in the vents. It all makes a terrifying experience. Playing it through on easy and is definately the right choice for me. Alien has a menacing presence still, but without unfair deaths. This keeps tension high and fustration/annoyance low. Halfway through atm and dont want it to end Will definantly be one of those games that will stick in your head for years to come and look back with fond memories and remind you why videogames are so great ????
  21. Whats everyones view of choice then? Im usually in car view in most games these days, but prefer outcar view for this one. even more so when playing online. Also does anyone else think the audio mix is out on this title? Engine sounds seem alittle flat and lack dynamic range and the tyre screeching seems louder than it should be and can get quite annoying sometimes.
  22. Is there any word when the servers are going to be up yet? Connected for a couple of minutes last nite and joined rllmukcasuals but disconnected straight after ???? Suppose its an excuse to get single player dusted of and open up as many cars as possible for online play ????
  23. Ok unbiased might be the wrong word to use, but by reading those first 3 paragraphs you know how the review was gonna go afterwards. Dont want to spend all day taking eurogamers review apart so leave it at that ????
  24. They disliked it pretty much for punishing you on corner cutting. The point of a racing game is to stay on track, and when it comes to online racing this is even more important as it encourages people to stay on track. Plus there is far more leeway to going of track than eurogamer make you believe. i know they dislike the tour mode aswell but to dislike this is to dislike pretty much any other single player racer as they are all set out the same way. Just didn't seem like a very good unbiased review imo
  25. Managed to get a race on this last nite online via challenges menu. Hyper cars was pre selected which i dont have but gives you a loan car and cant get no fame. Anyway took a lap to get used to increase speed but was a really close race and ended up taking the win on 2nd to last corner. Online really does bring back those pgr days with neck and neck races. Equal cars, good tracks ands its all about the person behind the wheel that makes the difference ???? Really does make me sad reading euro gamer review as they have completely missed the point in this game. Give me a focused circuit/point to point racer over open world any day.
