  1. Vampire Survivor surprised me most despite only just getting it. Wrote it off as yet another purposely shit looking roguelike type game, but have quickly succumbed to its charms. Not sure about disappointments; Super Mario 3D World maybe, not launched this year but gave it a bash during my holiday this year and just found it a frustrating mess. And Elden Ring too to an extent. Loved it for the first few weeks and genuinely thought I’d cracked my dislike of Souls type games, but eventually I hit the wall and the fun drained away very quickly.
  2. Feel really stupid for not playing this sooner. It’s unbelievable. Just did my first 30 minute run… the clock thing proved VERY useful. I may need to go and lie in a dark room for a few hours now.
  3. Still haven’t lasted past 20 minutes or so. Got a good build going with garlic and the shield herb thing and felt almost invincible. Then it fucked me. I had to turn it off as when I close my eyes it’s just a wall of moving sprites.
  4. Well this is total shit isn’t it? I mean the graphics are horrible, there’s no story, I didn’t buy a 3080 to play cra… Three hours later. I can’t see. No idea what’s going on yet really. Seem to die very easily. But fuck me this is addictive.
  5. That’s a wrap for the year… 1. OlliOlli World (£15) 2. Elden Ring (£38) 3. Death Stranding Directors Cut Upgrade (£8) 4. Kodiak 100 Plane for MSFS2020 (£30) 5. BAe 146 plane for MSFS (£50) 6. Satisfactory (£14) 7. Stray (£18) 8. Inside (£2) 9. Super Mario 3D World (£35) 10. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (£50) 11. Milviz Cessna 310R plane for MSFS (£30) Twelve games on the backlog now, but a couple of biggies in there I really want to finish next year: Death Stranding DC, Cyberpunk and Baldurs Gate 3. We’ll see what Steam Secret Santa throws up too.
  6. Well played through to the end of Act 1 this evening, and it’s gone from mildly diverting/compelling, to oddly gripping. It’s pretty lightweight but enjoying the writing and little unexpected gamey challenges. Feels like the kind of game I could lose a quiet afternoon to very easily.
  7. Are we just letting that go without any intervention?
  8. Want to crack in to the second half of Persona 5 Royal. Flight Sim will obvs be in there heavily. Also got Pentiment and Return to Monkey Island on the go. Then there’s the Steam Secret Santa so hopefully I’ll get something nice there
  9. Just binged the first series, oh my that was rather good. I love a good ode to London, and GO/KST were great value. Looking forward to the next series
  10. Started last night, not really sure what I’m doing or what’s going on yet but it’s compelling enough so far.
  11. Kill things to make things to kill bigger things to make better things… With a very rewarding but hard to master fighting mechanic. That revels in being somewhat obtuse and unclear (eg great if you LOVE mastering systems)
  12. Fleetwood Mac have been a constant in my life since I can remember. Early Peter Green stuff on my Dad’s stereo, dancing with my Mum and sister to Tusk, long car journeys with Rumours playing in the car. In recent years they’ve been a source of warmth and comfort despite the often tragic lyrics, they are a bit of a relic of a time gone by when music sounded expensive and lusciously produced. Hearing about Christine McVie dying was quite a shock, despite her tracks never being my favourites she was clearly a strong and supremely talented woman. Tusk on right now…
  13. 1. OlliOlli World (£15) 2. Elden Ring (£38) 3. Death Stranding Directors Cut Upgrade (£8) 4. Kodiak 100 Plane for MSFS2020 (£30) 5. BAe 146 plane for MSFS (£50) 6. Satisfactory (£14) 7. Stray (£18) 8. Inside (£2) 9. Super Mario 3D World (£35) 10. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (£50) 11. Milviz Cessna 310R plane for MSFS (£30) Hadn’t updated for a while. Only purchase recently was (another) new plane for MSFS which was a brilliant purchase, however moved house in mid October, and lack of proper internet (coming next week I hope) has meant downloading new games or playing anything that consumes too much data (yes, looking at you Flight Sim) has been a no-no. So no new purchases, managed to get P5R on game pass downloaded and have mainly been playing that. Looking good to hit the target for the year, and as three of my “games” were just planes my backlog is in check
  14. Put me in the won’t watch camp. Completely toxic tournament, I’ll donate to a relevant organisation to support migrant workers and ignore the whole fucking circus. Which makes me sad, I LOVE the World Cup. The first two weeks of group matches is always brilliant, hopefully the ‘26 will be a stormer to make up for it.
  15. I’d prob go for a 4080 at £800, through gritted teeth. But the current pricing is insane
  16. The A310 that comes with this looks very promising, sounds like they’ve partnered with iniBuilds who make excellent detailed payware aircraft. A big step up from the default a320 that came originally. Hurry up and give me my internet Virgin!!
  17. Aaargh, so gutted. I don’t have a proper internet connection for another week and a half. Really looking forward to this but will have to wait. New version of Navigraph Charts was released this week too. And I’d just bought a new plane before we moved. Can’t wait to get back in the cockpit
  18. Oh I didn’t really understand the registering thing, I’ll get my head around that then just experiment then
  19. Can someone recommend me a guide on fusing? I’ve fused a bunch of new personas but I’m not really sure if I’m actually doing anything useful… it it just a matter of creating higher level personas and cherry picking the skills you want, or am I missing something deeper? Assuming it’s usually preferable to fuse in to a Persona type you have strong confidant bonds with to get the boost.
  20. Absolutely adore that game. Saw it’s had a couple of pretty meaty updates so will have to pick it up again
  21. Got my info from this Reddit thread, seems people are seeing great results from undervolting
  22. Downloaded yesterday, been very excited to play this again. I played it on PS4 four years or so back and loved it but gave up about half way through, thanks to a house move and general life getting in the alway. Strangely I am mid house move now, currently in temporary accommodation, and I find P5 a nice little escape from the stress. Can’t wait to get my PC hooked back up to my CX to see it in its full 4K glory, but on a 1440p screen this already looks wonderful, and I can’t wait to delve in to this world again.
  23. @Moz you could try undervolting to see if it stops the random crashes - apparently it is a bit of an undervolting beast. At worst you can rule power issues out as a cause.
  24. I need to stop reading this thread. I’ve gone from there’s no way I want one, through I don’t neeed one to hmm, if the option arises I probably wouldn’t. It’s not a good trajectory.
