  1. 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.



  2. Today's this or that answers.

    The official Xbox one. 


    Well I expect Atmos can make a bit of a difference.

    As Cassidy says Atmos is excellent with them. Personally for me the ability to sync up to two devices is a god send for when I'm cross platforming things. Being able to hear in game audio while talking on Discord is brilliant. If you don't need that functionality and won't get anything out of buying Dolby Atmos put the credit towards a game or summat.

    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)…



  4. What’s the general consensus on those wireless Xbox headsets? 
    I have enough moon points to nab one, but was wondering what the advantages are over a no name wired set that I currently use? Is the sound particularly resplendent? 

  5. So if we own the special edition we get anniversary edition for free? Or do we pay fifteen quid for it but get a next gen spit and polish for free?


    So the special edition would get a free update, but if you want the anniversary stuff you pay for it?

    It’s very confusing.

    So I was tickled that the main maguffin of the movie is a mashup of two Metal Gear Solid classics:

    Fox Die and nanobots, son

    And then I read a Reddit post that pointed out there’s even more Metal Gear in there:


      Hide contents

    The submarine thing docking at a deserted area like at the start of MGS1

    ’Smart blood’ injections to track you and a kind of soliton radar

    A climactic missile strike to destroy the base


    and best of all


    At the very end James Bond climbs up a MASSIVE ladder

    And another similarity that I saw pointed out on Reddit:

    And, towards the end the...



    One shot staircase fight, is pretty much lifted straight from MGS1.





  7. I’m near the end if this now I think. Saying that, it’s got more false finishes than a TNA X division match. 

    Brief thoughts, I can’t stand Ellie, I’m not sure if that’s meant to happen, but she’s dreadful. 




    … I like. I’m on her side, is that the point? 



    The “controversy” surrounding her is ridiculous. I’m sure it’s been touched on in this thread, but the stuff I’ve read elsewhere describing the situation is mad. She’s a cool cat, and way more interesting than Ellie, or what Ellie has become.


    Overall it’s too long, and extremely samey, because of it. I’m not sure how many more people I want to save, only for me to tell them to “wait here, while I go and get munched”. 
    The gunplay is horrible, but the sneaky stuff is great. 
    the messing about with timelines, works for converging the stories, but does flit a little too much at times. For instance there’s a bloke who apologises to Ellie at the start…



    You don’t find out what for, for another 20 odd hours during the 13th epilogue…

    … by which time I’d forgotten, and didn’t really care tbh. 

    I sound overly critical, I have enjoyed my time with it. I’m hoping to get through the last 3 or 4 endings this evening to finish it off and maybe it’ll all come together. 

    One thing I’d like from the next one is more monsters. I play zombie games for monsters. The Clicker has gone from being terrifying to being simply a tiny bit bothersome. A character like that deserves better.

    I wonder what the blurry text across the eye line of that gruff man with an eye patch says.


    It's deliberately blurred text. I thought it might say something like "A Hideo Kojima Game - With Norm Walkie Dead and Del Trotter". 

    So on a hunch I ran it through a text cleaner software, like what they use on CSI and all that.


    Spoilers ahead.





  9. MS will sort out the customs charges. Or at least they did last time I ordered. They ship them over by the crate load, hence the shipping dates always being the same. 

    Either that or they've been nicked. Joke's on them, good luck finding a buyer for a dildo pink Xbox controller engraved with jimmbobRox!1
