  1. Vampyr just got a 60fps patch for next gen consoles @1440p.
  2. Amazing part wait till you the ender.
  3. Fallout 4 appears to have had a resolution increase in combination with fps boost. It was 1080p/60 or 4K/30. Now it looks better than 1080p in fps boost mode. Maybe a res boost mode is coming.
  4. I can't reccomend Wander highly enough. It's just google street in VR but an amazing thing to jump around the world.
  5. I think its worth £11 per month. There I said it. Rumoured to be going up in price next year though.....
  6. Lots of great stories from one of the main filmers of Plan B's Questionable and Virtual Reality videos. This is from my era of skateboarding and those videos were legendary.
  7. https://www.trustedreviews.com/news/trusted-reviews-awards-the-xbox-series-x-is-2021s-best-games-console-4172245
  8. Forum whip round for Ry to give it the jobby test.
  9. And I'm done . I'm no audiophile so I was playing the 2009 remasters via spotify through my TV speakers. As the End finished up I'm thinking I know that tune. It comes full circle The Beasties were my favourite band. Every time they released an album they redefined themselves. I'm going to try and repeat this day in the future. It's been a great education and emotive experience. I mean I already knew 90% of the tracks but I'd never called myself a Beatles fan. After today I am a devoted Beatles fan.
  10. Took a break after the White Album. I think they might have invented modern music with that one. Just done Yellow Submarine, glad I did. The instrumentals were very John Williams and Hey Bulldog was a belter. It was largely new to me bar the main theme which after the marathon today was very welcome and a change of tone. Just started on Let It Be per Darren's recommendation. Looking good to do the main back catalogue today. I'm no expert but so far I'm not hearing any dip in quality. This was definitely an album I grew up around. Looking at the tracklist probably because it has a track with the name Maggie in it and I can picture my Dad buying this for my mum for that reason alone. Glad for the advice though to make sure I'm doing this the right way. Having just heard Dirty Maggie Mae I can imagine my Dad did buy it and got thoroughly lamped for his efforts. lol. Let It Be done and dusted I now get where the criticism comes from there are indeed a couple of duffers on this compared to pretty much every main album up to this point. Abbey Road up next. Pretty sure I've never listened to this as an album before. As Come Together winds up I'm pretty sure I've never noticed how strong the hammond(?) organ is to the track or if it's been prominent on a Beatles tune before now. What strikes me over the course of today's listening is the length and breadth of instrumentation and styles they committed to over their time producing songs together. Probably as much a result of their status and success that allowed them the freedom to experiment over the years which is unlikely to be afforded to many other artists constricted by the industry to stick to what they were good at with the odd exception where the were allowed to stick a bit of orchestra on top of their signature style. It's been a great experience and one I'd heartily recommend to anyone who finds themselves with a day to dive into such a marathon. I can't think of any other artists who I could do this with without skipping tracks due to the sheer amount of filler or similarity of style. I usually listen to music in a manner that ensures no 2 tracks are of a similar style or artist these days and not once have I been even tempted to cut a tune short as I've been rewarded with something musically pleasing even if the song wasn't immediately working for me.
  11. Not got there yet and it's not one I know particularly well but I'm looking forward to it now. re: Long Long Long
  12. Back In The USSR into Dear Prudence is just awe inspiring so far. Not saying its better but this version always takes my breath away.... then Glass Onion ..... Obladee almost lost me but then they stuck an ice cream van refrain in near the end that stuck the knife in my heart and twisted it in a kind of hellraiser pleasure vs pain thing. Weeping guitars to happy warm guns inspiring Martha was a trip. Now I can't sleep despite the exhaustion. "only to find Gideon's bible" really gets me for some reason. I love Rocky Racoon far more than anyone probably should. scanners.gif
  13. So that's a listen then. Cool. All you need is love just started.... more greeting ahead.... White Album next I might be starting a cult after this one if anyone's interested.... "She loves you yeah yeah yeah".....
  14. Overheard folks mentioning this place way back playing Rainbow Six on the original xbox. You might have @Kryptonian to blame.
