  1. I have a lap attachment for my PS2 wheels, which came with the older of the two, that I mostly use. But I have used the high tech solution of clamping it yo an ironing board, which worked well. So a sofa and coffee table combo should work as well.
  2. Coincidentally, I found a step down labelled "PS2 / GC" amongst my shit. @gospvg you want it? I have no idea if it works, or any way to test it, so you can have it for the cost of postage. Unless someone tells me they're really expensive, in which case, it'll cost you about as much as one of those games you linked to.
  3. Yeah, I have two Logitech PS2 wheels and they both work on PC. They dropped the bhp thing from both 3 and 4, then brought in Performance Points in 5, which is similar to the FIA's Balance Of Performance system, so takes into account more than just the engine power.
  4. Experience, essentially. It was one of the big criticisms leveled at GT3 by Edge - you have to work at getting a decent race. Unlike GT2, there's no HP limit (though you could still game this) or the like, so you have no idea how evenly matched you'll be until you actually race. Generally, as you progress through the divisions, the CPU cars get more and more modified. I got a Logitech Driving Force GT, which is also PS3 compatible out the box. There's a £90 adapter that you can get that'll make it work on XBone that I'm tempted to get.
  5. Was that the version with cardboard players, or the one with the polystyrene pitch?
  6. Undoubtedly. GT3 is the game I have played most in my life, but quite some way. Of all the GT games, it has the best game structure and is the most playable as a result. I recently got a decent wheel and discovered it's even better, because you can be competitive with the CPU cars without resorting to "bringing a gun to a knife fight". GT4 just didn't have the same feeling to it, not helped by the fact you could virtually complete it without actually driving any races yourself. And 5 & 6 were not only just vanity pieces, but are now literally unplayable since the servers have been shut down.
  7. I didn't know these existed. It looks like I could use both my Logitech Driving Force GT and my Microsoft wireless wheel (with the PC adapter thing) working on my XBone. Interesting... Could really do with a stand that folds away and works with them both, though.
  8. From a mate's Facebook post, it would appear that Codies are dumping a load of, mostly support, staff.
  9. I'd stay with cousins in Swanage, Dorset at least once a year. After I got it, my SNES would always go with me, though the has a Megadrive at the time. And a Spectrum then a C64 prior to that.
  10. Does the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection count as retro? Mostly playing SFII Championship Edition. Struggling to pull off fireballs and especially Dragon Punches with the XBone pad, meaning I get my ass handed to me by Zangief on a regular basis. Considering buying one of those 360 to XBone converters, so I can use my Hori pad.
  11. I do most of it on my phone - Bing app for mobile points, Chrome in desktop mode for desktop, Edge app for the last 12. Do the set of three every day (I sometimes forget at weekends). Then there's the Xbox app & launch a game, the weekly rewards on the Xbox app and the weekly and monthly challenges in the Game Pass app. S one are easy (there's always one that is essentially "launch this game), some less so. But there are always guides on Reddit for the trickier ones. Don't forget that the daily 50 points for an achievement (when it works) is across Xbox, PC and Android/iOS games, so there's some stupidly easy ones on non Xbox games.
  12. It's really,, really good as well. We watched it years ago and loved it. Was a bit nervous about going back to it, but it's as good as I remember.
  13. Motherfucker I was about ten episodes into the first season of Friday Night Lights, it was as good as I remembered, and suddenly I have too pay for it. Fuck that, I'm pirating it. Does this happen a lot? It's the first time I've experienced something suddenly becoming paid for.
  14. I like games centred around mining and crafting, like Terraria and My Time at Portia (I'm sure there are other games where you the whole aim is to mine stuff and then craft things out of it and you can mine and craft to your hearts content, but I can't think of one right now), but I'm not really a fan where it's just been shoehorned in.
