  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. 

  2. 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 needs some love too. Hrrrrmm, this list will grow...

  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. 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. 

  5. 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

    Where did you get to @spanx?


    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. 

  7. Impressions here piqued my interest - this is definitely not my sort of thing normally (can’t handle multitasking g overload in RTSs usually, and turn-based tactics type things just frustrate the hell out of me). 
     

    However this one has grabbed me a bit. You can take your time, and the super quick save/resume means numpties like me can just try shit without that sinking feeling of having to keep reloading a checkpoint and repeating boring actions. Also like the combination of on one hand executing a perfect showdown where you feel like some kind of master hitman, with shambolic attempts where you seem to fluke scraping through an encounter by the skin of your teeth. 

     

    Yeah, i like this.

    Just the idea that you need to fuck about with drivers and configuration and need a mouse and keyboard to play PC games on your big living room TV is seriously outdated in 2021.


    Precisely. I have had a PC pretty much as a direct replacement for consoles in my living room since September. It’s been a fucking revelation. 
     

    Stupidly expensive mind. I completely understand I’m in a fortunate position. But it’s pretty much no compromise 4K and 60fps+ gaming whatever you play.

    Fancied a break from MS Flight Sim after a failed attempt with FSEconomy, and kept reading about this so chucked a fiver at Steam and bought it. What an adorable game. Kicking myself I only found the “reduce the pixels” option after making it to the summit after really enjoying a stern investigation of the island. Half tempted to spend another evening mopping up the achievements purely so I know I’ve found every nook and cranny on this lovely little group of islands. Genuinely haven’t got a bad word to say about it. Delightful.
