  1. That rhythm section intro gets me every time. Then the piano. The the guitar and horns. I mean Christ. What a riff. God only knows how much of a blast of fresh air this must have felt in the early 60s Another “Fuck Me in the Balls” riff, but wiv computers.

    Perfect Albums

    The albums I’d want to take with me... The Band - The Band Fleetwood Mac - Tusk GZA - Liquid Swords Massive Attack - Blue Lines Beasties - Paul’s Boutique Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers Goldie - Timeless My Bloody Valentine - Loveless Tbh I could probably pick any Stones album of that era, what a fucking band. And The Last Waltz soundtrack from The Band is probably more special to me as it was me and my Dad’s thing and I miss him, but it’s far from perfect. There’s a big 80s sized gap in there (Beasties aside) that definitely ne
  3. Gamepass FTW. Had looked at WF a few times on PS4 but never really got round to it, but grabbed this a couple of days ago on PC and love it. Only played career mode so far but it’s already quite difficult; if someone gets ahead of the pack it’s really hard to reel them back in. It’s really satisfying weighty and they’ve perfected that feel of being right on the edge of the cars grip, but not overly punishing you when it gives. Really good, not sure I’ll spend much time with it (eg multiplayer) but it’s a nice distraction from MSFS2020/OnAir.
  4. @Jamie John definitely agree on the JRPG front. Persona 5 was the best of the bunch in recent times but fuck me it does not respect your time. Others I’ve tried recently have been painfully average (Ni no Kuni 2 and DQ11) and couldn’t really keep me interested for long.
  5. No, just FS2020 for now. Is DCS worth trying?
  6. My missus is already calling it my warty hot ass. And yes I am still alive. Although realising I have just lost a major bit of leverage around the cost of wedding venues.
  7. Box had them in stock. Thrust master also had them on their store but for some reason £5 more. So I spent the spare fiver on Box and got next day delivery instead. It is a lovely piece of kit. Just taking off and being able to hold a perfect angle, tweaking a proper trim level and being able to manage it all without moving your hands much makes a massive difference. Fuck me it is heavy though.
  8. Hell. Yes. EDIT. First couple of flights down. Utterly amazing piece of kit. The throttle controller in particular has upped my game immeasurably.
  9. I am a massive sucker for Mario Golf. If that gets some online forum action I’d be all over it. Or if it doesn’t get some online forum action. I’ll still be all over it.
  10. So I just bought a Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS. Oh man my missus is going to kill me
  11. Really intrigued how they'll map the controls to just a controller. I use an Xbox controller myself, but hugely rely on having mouse and keyboard too. I suppose those are supported on Xbox, but yeah. Interesting. Got a four day weekend coming up. My goal is to master the Citation CJ4 - it's a bit of a handful and I had a couple of disastrous attempts flying it when I was new to the game. Hoping I'll have more luck now. Also been using Onair to give it a bit of a career mode which is nice. It's such a great "game", utterly absorbing
  12. Had a quick fly around London, taking in Kew Gardens, Windsor Castle, Wembley and then the city and Docklands. Massive step up, looked great. Still trying to track a bloody HOTAS down to buy.
  13. Hrrrm, to a boss on top of a cathedral. It was quite early on. I think I like the idea of these games more than the actual minute to minute experience of playing them. I don’t even mind the difficulty so much, it’s more that I feel like I’m fighting with it the whole time rather than feeling at one.
  14. I failed again. Uninstalled last night. I think I’ve finally learned my lesson. Fromsouls is not for me. Mind you, if that Bloodborne remake turns up on PC.....
