  1. Thanks for the tips chaps. In a stroke of expensive luck I’ve managed to snag one of these directly from the PS store, so best I clear some room under the telly. They’re available direct on the PS store as of writing btw.
  2. Available direct. https://direct.playstation.com/en-gb/buy-consoles/playstation5-console
  3. @Hitcher ooh, good idea. I will look into that. Cheers .
  4. So you’re saying I need a brand new telly? I hear you. Thanks for the tips.
  5. Ah yes that’s it, a switcher. £60 you say. Hmm, perhaps leaning behind the TV isn’t too much of a bind after all. Thanks for the help.
  6. Does anyone have any tips for a relatively cheap hdmi switcher that will work between a PS5 and an Xbox series X to save me constantly faffing around at the back of the TV? I presume the thing needs to support 4k or something? My TV doesn’t do 2.1, whatever that is. As you can tell I’m very intelligent on these matters.
  7. I’ve given it a thorough thrashing this evening. And may be a couple of eyelashes short.
  8. It’s arrived lads!!! So of course it’s pissing down.
  9. This is the real great reset. Thanks Bill Gates.
  10. Rewards is all kinds of busted at the moment yers?
  11. “You got tik tok?” *flosses in Spanish*
  12. Take the silliness out of Resident Evil 4 and you’re left with a very strange tale indeed. Man takes taxi to a Spanish Village. Man helps a dog. Man looks up woman’s skirt. They drive home on a jet ski. Fin.
  13. Oh Christ. If they fuck this up I swear I will only buy it on two platforms.
  14. Well, well, well, how the turntables have turn tabled Mr Gwyn... Finished this off last night. Some thoughts. It gets it's claws into you doesn't it? There were a couple of times I thought "fuck this game", and turned it off. The second Asylum Demon, O&S, etc. However after leaving it a day or so I'd go crawling back, for one more go. It's given a lot of credit for it's story. I found it interesting if a little sparse, however the internet is a great tool to piece together bits here and there. Maybe that's the point. No map, no problem, it all fits together very well. I did get lost a few times, and due to my limited gaming time I have no qualms about using a youtube vid to point me in the right direction. How I long for the endless days of my youth. Unfortunately, wandering around a map for hours on end trying to find the right direction isn't a great use of my time. Again the internet was a wonderful tool to help out. The atmosphere is amazing. The world is beautiful and bleak, the enemies are well imagined, and generally pretty bad ass. I love how you go from fleeing dragons, getting battered by knights, and burnt to a crisp by gargoyles, to smashing skeleton wheel monsters and knights like they're nothing. I went from Benny Hilling away from Black Knights, and throwing firebombs at the first Capra Demon (I'm not proud, there's a hole above the mist door, that's what it's for FFS), to literally pancaking Taurus demons, incredible stuff. Sen's fortress, oh how I laughed... It reminds of what Salazar would have achieved with the castle in Resident Evil 4 if he'd been able to study a bit harder. Incredible stuff. A lot of the game reminded me of Resident Evil 4 actually. Mainly the architecture, but also the way it all fits together into one big crazy map of nonsense. Weird NPCs dotted around talking in Welsh, and other mystic languages... Also, the music on the main menu is totally lifted from Resi. For the most part I agree that "ItZ aLwAyS PlAyUr ErRor If Ur K1lLeD In DaRk SoUls", however, Bed of Chaos was really weird, it would be childish to say unfair, but Christ, that run to it after each failed attempt was an eye roller. Anyway I enjoyed it and am not quite sure what to play next. I've heard a small game called Elden Ring is coming out soon, I wonder if that'll be any good.
  15. Small update on this. Yesterday I beat up some fella called the four kings. I Havelled up to the back teeth and Leroy Jenkins’d the hell out of them. Not the most elegant of battles, but it seemed to do the trick. I’ve still got no idea what I’m doing. I saved and quit after it. A camp snake with wooden teeth wanted a chat, but time was getting on…
  16. I just beat Ornstein and Smough. No one in my house is bothered by this. But I feel I need to share it because they’ve been a pair of right rotters for a considerable amount of my gaming time. So fuck them. I have no idea what the rest of the game holds in store, and quite frankly I’m not bothered, but beating that pair of turnips has made my night. It was more luck than judgement, but I will take it…
  17. It’s gonna be so weird when near end of the movie the main character makes a bad choice and the film restarts from half way through.
  18. Amazon have the X in stock. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Xbox-RRT-00007-Series-X/dp/B08H93GKNJ/ref=sr_1_2?crid=25H0LC5S43J32&keywords=series+x&qid=1647598578&sprefix=series+%2Caps%2C210&sr=8-2 They're also still available on the Micrososft store.
  19. Why patch it when you can “remaster” it and sell it back to us? *tapping head bloke pic*
  20. Series X on the Microsoft store at the moment.
  21. I'm thinking of buying one of these now, rather than wait until the spring/summer months like I did last year only to find they'd sold out. I'm looking at the Ooni Koda 12 gas powered jobby. Before I drop the quite frankly alarming amount of cash on it, are there any new kids on the block that we're all buying instead of this one? Also, can anyone recomend a decent peel. I was just going to grab the Ooni one, but I'd rather not drop 40 quid on that if there's a better alternative.
  22. The Shenmue (1+2) collection is currently £4.99 on the Xbox store. If you’ve never dabbled, just do, it’s amazing.
  23. Today's this or that answers. Amsterdam, Netherlands Ankara, Turkey Bangkok, Thailand Berlin, Germany Bern, Switzerland Brasília, Brazil Budapest, Hungary Buenos Aires, Argentina Cairo, Egypt Dublin, Ireland Edinburgh, Scotland Helsinki, Finland London, England Madrid, Spain Moscow, Russia Ottawa, Canada Rabat, Morocco Rome, Italy Seoul, South Korea Tokyo, Japan Vienna, Austria Wellington, New Zealand
  24. Series X in stock at Curry’s. Stand alone, not a dodgy bundle. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/gaming/console-gaming/consoles/microsoft-xbox-series-x-1-tb-10203371-pdt.html?awc=1599_1639771776_a90ce784084dfd604473462879ad7797&srcid=369&xtor=AL-1&cmpid=aff~Stock Informer~Comparison Engine~38503~Megit+Limited
  25. Thanks guys. I don’t know what Dolby Atmos is, so perhaps ignorance is bliss in this situation. However I sense a day of googling, YouTubing, and review perusing is order of the day tomorrow (at work)…
