  1. Really enjoyed the first two episodes of this when it came out then had to go into hospital and blah blah blah now over a year later caught up with episode three and have no fucking clue what is going on whatsoever
  2. The single best thing to make me love gaming again was to stop trying to buy/play everything new that is good. You'll never be able to keep up with this expensive and tiring mindset, this was the case for me and I only stick to PlayStation so I can't imagine how bad it is for people that own multiple formats. Now I really only regularly play one game which I absolutely love, with everything else as more of a curio - I am happy to also play whatever appears 'free' on PS+ that appeals to me and leave it at that. Was nice to get six months PS+ Premium as I had Now before (also as a curio when it was only £25 for a year) so am currently playing some of the excellent PS5 titles on there, Extra is an unexpectedly great service with a brilliant game selection but I will be sticking with the basic tier once this expires as I already feel some stupid-ass psychological pressure to 'make the most' of it and play whatever I can fit in timewise. Will be better for me to stick to my one game and leisurely play the odd good title on the basic PS+ tier whenever one crops up or in the incredibly rare situation someone buys me a game for whatever reason. I have stopped gaming twice before - once when managing Gamestation for many years made me sick of even seeing the things (I was also starting to feel this way when getting new releases free and even being paid to play titles as a fairly successful Twitch streamer which I struggled to keep up with - I solved this by just going back to playing what I want which was mostly the aforementioned one game) and the other time for about a year very recently which was out of my control due to health shit. I think we all go through periods where we don't game when we get a new partner, move somewhere new, find an additional hobby etc but these have always been temporary distractions and not some conscious gaming break for me. I don't play a huge amount now but really enjoy it when I do because I'm playing what I want and not whatever the publisher has recently sent out a code for or by some arbitrary rule to 'play everything good' in my head. FOMO is a real thing in this hobby and can really ruin it, IMO.
  3. Despite being younger than most on this forum I now feel old as fuck because the only people I've heard of on this list are the four headliners, and I could only name songs by the two of them who are older than my parents. AMYL and the Sniffers sounds like the kind of name Chris Morris would make up!
  4. Urgh, I adore Ayoade but can't tolerate Lycett's tomfoolery. Adam Buxton would have been a perfect replacement presenter for this show.
  5. Been watching repeats of this on 4 in the mornings, the comedy still holds up and Niles is just amazing. Really dreading a 'sequel' series though, as @dumpster says I think the more recent AD seasons on Netflix actively made the show worse for me overall despite getting some enjoyment from them and I don't want the same to happen to Frasier.
  6. Just wanna say I love your photos. Ever had anyone kick off at you for being photographed?
  7. Don't say this stuff man even if it is casual and not serious, I know you have major sight issues but despite that you are clearly very smart and technically literate/capable - just read any page of this thread for evidence! I'm the kind of guy who blue screens Windows just by clicking the start button so would love to be as knowledgeable as you
  8. What a tribute! RIP Bernie, I was always a Sega kid and remember he got a lot of hate but interviewed very well and I could see where he was coming from with his choices.
  9. Played this for about three hours today on PS5 as it is part of the new PS+. Having great fun, I finished the first on PS4 back when it came out in 2017 (whaaaatttt) and obviously it's more of the same but I this is exactly the kind of throwaway polished fun I needed right now. Only exposure I have ever had to the character was in the first game, he seems decent. Game is gorgeous in Performance RT mode, too. Will probably go for the Platinum which I haven't done in any game for many years.
  10. Just watched this, film was the very definition of bland and generic.
  11. I can only assume you're being funny or something because there is no way in a million years any actual human would ever say that
  12. Some real 'genuine concerns' in here, had to check it wasn't JPL or Rafaqat doing their usual budget Louis Theroux style faux-innocence. Reminds me of Apple threads the way people come in making stuff up that clearly isn't true. Not that the service is great, obviously the UI is as shit as you'd expect from modern Sony and as someone who doesn't care about playing games I've already finished I think Premium (lol) is useless and seemingly still is for the time being even if you do like old titles due to the NTSC issue. All PS4/5/1/2/P games can be downloaded though, it's only PS3 games that you have to stream. I've not played any of the PS5 games added so that is great, otherwise it seems pretty much the same as Now - I do think Extra is a pretty good offer though. Will blast through this stuff and stay on the essential package once renewal time is up in November though as I am past the 'needing to play everything' part of my gaming life and have settled into one main 'comfort' game I absolutely love with everything else being the occasional distraction. I'd give the new service 7/10. It's aight but not for me, as with any gaming subscription service.
  13. Um... no it isn't. Can you explain this?
  14. For a noted fiddler (tech wise at least) and someone struggling as much as I am financially why don’t you find out and if it’s still working do this all the time? So long as it ain’t a Crypto style drain on humanity I’d be running whatever it is on ‘Da Deck’ whenever I can, put the thing in low power mode and get on it so you can surround yourself with those fabled £75 notes man.
  15. Yes, Discovery really is a special show!
  16. For what is essentially a nine year old game, GTA V (PS5 version here) can still often be gorgeous.
  17. I would never watch a Halo TV series, but it's been so long since I last saw The Wire that I thought Nick Sobotka was this dude, Frank. He really would have been a surprising choice for Master Chief.
