  1. Yeah, miles better than the get along gang episode last week. Hints of Fett the space arl arse. More of that please.
  2. Think I prefer some Max Rebo to get me in the Star Wars mood rather than Rennie Pilgrim breakbeats. That stuff on the sail barge in Jedi was more my idea of future funk. I'm in the mood for a dab of whizz at about ten mins in though. Hip.
  3. Gave this a go late last night on my bedroom Series S, supposedly only to gain myself 500 reward points for getting an achievement in game. Long story short, I flew past he achievement and continued to play until my eyes told me to stop, shattered. What a lovely chill game. The gameplay and world are a delight. It's gone from a game I hadn't given a second thought about, to one I'm looking forward to getting deeply into. Only thing is, I started on the Series S and although it presents a lovely image, there is definitely some poor frames rearing their ugly head. I also have a PC hooked up to the bedroom TV, a 3060, and was wondering if it's one of those wonderful play anywhere releases that MS likes to grace us with from time to time? I've put a couple of hours in so if it's not cross-play I'll continue on the S but I'd love to try smooth those errant frames, on both my 3060 and 2080TI for living room fun. Anyway, it's a great game and one I'm going deep on regardless.
  4. NV control panel, manage 3D settings (situated at top left of left side menu), DSR factors, then uncheck all the boxes in the drop down menu.
  5. I've been playing both Sega Rally Revo and Outrun 2 C2C (with rumble patched in) at 8K down sampled to 4K all afternoon. They look beautiful and run flawless. This is great for older games, really cleans up the image, C2C looks particularly sweet. Man, I wished they still made games like this, and as much as I like Horizon or stuff like Cruis'n Blast, they aren't the same. As I say, this is great for older games. Off to MyAbandonware.com for a peruse for some more gold.
  6. So did this get a 60fps increase on PS5 (well, I know it did, now, but only since about an hour ago). Might install it and give that Valkyrie another bash. Maybe 60fps somehow transforms me into less of a shitty player. Probably not. Need to bone up on everything that got a boost, knew about GoS, TLoU2 and FF7 but seems like plenty more benefit. To Google.
  7. Ooh, a native Dualsense control option with it's own menu. I'd love to play this, it looks incredible and I'd be able to whack it up at 4K and 60fps...but I absolutely rinsed it on my PS4 Pro, well, still got that bastard hard last Valkyrie to beat but combed every inch of the world and completed everything else. Too many games that need playing to go back to something I (almost) fully completed. Sigh.
  8. I don't think anyone with any character development nous had much to do with squeezing Fett club 7 into the show, definitely marketing. Suppose Star Wars has always been fairly compromised by merchandising and demographic choices, right back to the OT, but at least old George tried to keep it fairly relevant. The choice of that lot in this reeks of on high wanting an in with the kids or teens. "We've got the middle aged man buying toys sewn up but we need to boost metrics amongst the youth" "What's hot that we can plonk in?" cue a room full of desperados brainstorming and somehow coming up with that bunch. I mean them being young and having bright scooters is the only in that I can figure, it's certainly not the Vespa angle, maybe they thought that would help with the oldies digging it. Don't see them appealing to any group in a big way. It's pure marketing and I wouldn't be surprised if they have a finger hovering over the mass tat production button. Think they won't bother to press it once the feedback from all demographics is in. Hope they didn't waste too much on Black Series scooter moulds. They had an across the board money maker in mini Yoda and would very much like more of the same, they want toys to be desired by the kids and not just muppets like me who'll probably be dead before their sales forecast spreadsheet's final page (it's laid out in decades, probably) Just wish sales of merch etc didn't compromise artistic endeavour in such overt ways. Needs more finesse and CIA tactics of insertion to win big with people, not just some obvious checklist. Or god forbid, great ideas and stories that enamour people.
  9. You just know there's gonna be an episode where he rides around on the Rancor looking all badass and weak willed idiots like me will start whooping at the screen and proclaim how awesome the show was, despite it being pretty turgid for most of its runtime. Only, I'm not going to fall for it this time. I just don't dig Morrison as Fett. As with most SW side characters, they're best left to the imagination, the personality you gave them when twatting two pieces of plastic together and shouting pew pew. I'm glad people are enjoying the show and know I sound like a miserabilist, sorry. I think I'll keep any future expectations in check for anymore D+ shows about legacy characters. The idea sounded cool but I like the thought more than the execution. Fett to me will always be a stoic badass with not much onscreen development and who died in a daft way. American accent an all. Not some polite dimbo with the whitest teeth in the outer rim. I won't bung up the thread anymore. Enjoy.
  10. I finished both SoC and CoP, definitely two of the most atmospheric games I've had the fortune to play. And the only games I've ever fully finished with a mouse and keyboard. Absolutely loved them. SoC melted my Core 2 Duo and 7900GS and CoP my six core Phenom and 6870. Good times. Have Clear Sky here on a very capable machine and a Corsair lapboard for couch play. Not sure if I'm going to try finish it before the new game, though think that's been delayed so probably a good idea now. Hopefully become the third game I complete using mouse and keyboard.
  11. Don't think much of this so far. The Mandalorian was great, had a lot of the Rogue One's about it (an authenticity) but this feels like the opposite to me. As someone mentioned earlier, it feels like cosplay and a bit tepid to boot. Not a fan of Morrison's take on the character. I'd always imagined him with that sly American accent from Empire "he's worth a lot to me". Those few short words aligned with my take on him being a space arl arse. It's all a bit lovey dovey here. I get why but it isn't my ideal. Tough shit. Those kids on the gleaming scooters seemed straight out of some jazzy west end song and dance show, all clicky fingers and sparkle. Not exactly Tatooine. Fed up of that as a location as well, while I'm whinging. I'll keep watching because I'm Star Wars mad. Might warm to it. Fuck knows.
  12. I remember them getting Cyber Sled in there and I whigged out, excitedly phoning my mate and telling him to drop everything and get his arse down as they had 'virtual reality'. He set me straight that it was 3D and "not fucking virtual reality" after he indeed dropped everything and got his arse down. I was newly back into games and hadn't yet bought my first copy of Edge to get the knowledge. We had a good few games against each other, mind. Looked and sounded incredible at the time.
  13. Took it out about two hours before hand. Turned the central heating off in the kitchen a bit before. Was delicious.
