    I played this on PS4 for the first time last night and it feels pretty swimmy. Is lag a known issue? What are you playing it on?

    Also on PS4, the lag definitely feels like an issue on the arcade games. It doesn't help that they're both double hard as well. It sounds like although PS4 has lag, the Switch version is even worse.

  2. I must have 3 or 4 orders outstanding with LRG 🤦‍♂️


    I’ll probably buy this as well, but not that shitty peripheral.


    In other news I got the Platinum trophy on Vasara Collection. Timeless mode is great fun, but the two arcade games really are a bit shit.

  3. I played through Crows: Burning Edge a few months back. One particular level I spent literally hours on trying to find Rindaman. The maps weren’t all that big, but the way to him was a little tucked away. I finally found him and beat him. Imagine my horror a few stages later when I dropped the pad, it landed on the touch pad and brought up a fucking map with your objectives marked on it. In my defence the game is entirely in Japanese and I can’t read any, but I felt a right twat.

  4. Not really followed MMA for about 5 years, interesting to see Kirill Sidelnikov on the card. I remember he was supposed to be the new Fedor (amongst many others) back in the M-1 days. Checking out his record it seems he hasn't been all that active since M-1.

  5. Bit of a weird one from me, but I struggle to go back to games that require quite a bit of time investment if I already have most or all of the achievements unlocked. Take for instance I recently played through Chaosbane on XSX, got 1000GS on it, then went to play the extra chapter but couldn't bring myself to do it because the game was already "complete". However, if the game isn't on an Xbox or PS system with trophies or achievements it's fine, I can happily replay games on other systems whenever. I can also play shmups happily still even if they are 100%.


    I'm not even sure what it is with GS and Trophies, I've never really cared much for them until I got my Series X (I was a 360 owner from about 2007 and still have one set up now), yet all of a sudden my mind is telling me no, don't play that, there's no more score to get.

    Well, if the only reason you are asking is to sell them on, you could just sell them with loose sticks and loose about £10-£15 on the price?


    To be honest, opening them up and putting lube on them did help quite a bit.

    I could do, some of them are a bit loose and grindy, others are so broken I have no idea how they got that way. I might open the worst offenders up and see what I can do.

    Ok, so just tried it. First impressions aren't great. The stick feels too stiff, and its slightly harder to turn left than turn right. Also, it feels like there is grinding plastic when you use it. I am going to open it up and put some plastic lube in to see if that help. But honestly, I would just order one of ebay with a decent stick, like other people have mentioned, and this one cost me £10 and isn't great.


    To be fair, at least the the throw is correct, which is more than I can say for most of the 3rd party sticks available, which make Goldeneye almost impossible to play.



    Thanks for the response, this is disappointing. I'm not short of controllers, got a few that are in good condition, I was just hoping to put decent new sticks in a load of knackered ones and sell them on.


    I'll give it a miss for now then, they can go back up in the loft.

    Fuck sake. Is the Switch version digital only at the moment as well?

    It appears so. Xbox and PS4 are getting physical editions next month but there’s nothing listed for Switch I can see.

    The likeness wasn’t authorised and he complained so it was changed. 


    This explains why my mind can’t deal with TLOU and Beyond: Two Souls being different games. Pretty sure they came out at fairly similar times as well.

    Am I misremembering, or between the initial trailers and release did they tone down the physical likeness of Ellie in The Last of Us to Elliot Page? I clearly remember assuming he was playing her when I saw the first trailer, and a lot of his mannerisms are still in the character.

    There was another game that came out around the same time that had Elliot (back then as Ellen) Page as the main character. Beyond: Two Souls I think it was.
