  1. A new top tier got announced yesterday. $99.99 for six months access to a 3080 based system that offers 1440p at up to 120fps or 4K60 for Nvidia Shield owners. https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/21/22738006/nvidia-rtx-3080-geforce-now-features-price-release-date-streaming-option A bunch of other less headline grabbing stuff thats supposed to improve latency as well that they are making big claims about. They compared latency to other services and setups where they didn't even bother including Stadia which is some low-key savagery. Poor Phil Harrison.
  2. That shitty tache must be the default though right? My CJ never had one of those hiding his good looks. Trailer looks meh on the phone but when I watched it on a TV it looks pretty fucking good. Not sure I'll get it day one but whenever its on sale I'll probably jump in on PS5 or Xbox.
  3. I haven't posted in here for ages but I have beaten some games. Previously Amikrog I thought this was an old PC game that I vaguely remembered so I bought it on a whim for €2.49 in some Xbox sale. When I bothered to Google my purchase it turns out that this was actually a Kickstarter game inspired by the old PC game (The Neverhood) I vaguely remembered. What a twist! And one of the main men behind the game, Doug TenNapel has since gained a reputation for being a noted bellend. Fantastic!! And the game isn't even any good. Theres a decent cutscene at the start and right at the beginning of the game theres a window you can look out a few times to get some different video clips (and an achievement) which gives the impression there could be some level of polish here but then it hits a wall. I played it for a half hour or so before looking up a guide which I followed until the credits rolled a few hours later. Its plainly one of those Kickstarter games that was way too ambitious. Around halfway through the game you find a hall of heroes which is just a massive text dump for a story that gives context to the world you are in but I spent twenty minutes just reading pages of text instead of doing anything. I'm certain at some point this backstory was meant to be woven into the game in a more natural way but instead its just a bunch of text. A puzzle where you put a mobile together for a baby gets repeated just for the sake of being repeated, the controls are bad and the story is well put together either. 2/10 because I did like the claymation cutscenes. The Stretchers A game built to be played in co-op that I played through all by myself, don't wanna be, all b.... The music is great in this, especially while you are driving the ambulance. Tragically most videos of the game on Youtube have people talking over the game instead of listening to the music. Boo. I've tried rewriting this a few times as everything I wrote could be condensed down to the word nice. Its simply a nice videogame to spend some time with. People should play it. 7/10

  5. https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/19/22735389/xbox-mutes-speakers-plug-in-headphones-skip-ahead-ring When I got a headset for my Series X last year I felt like an idiot for not being able to find the setting to mute the TV speakers when I connected the headset. It not being an option at all was just too preposterous an idea for me to even consider. Delighted they are finally adding this.
  6. Xbox Series S themed mini-fridge but in a shock twist it's a bit bigger than the Series X one.
  7. GameStop have accepted my order so you can all look forward to my review if I decide to keep it.
  8. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/guardians-of-the-galaxy-requires-150gb-of-storage-on-pc/ Are they taking the piss? This just seems destined to fail which is probably a shame. The trailers have been bad but the previews make it seem like there's some neat ideas in there.
  9. I finished this on Wednesday. Really enjoyed it even though the final story boss was a bit of an anti-climax as I had done so much of the side stuff that it wasn't challenging at all. It was a good spectacle and I don't want to sound like I'm criticizing the game on that point as I did choose to go arseing around Mirgard doing oddjobs for people. There wasn't much left to do in the game so I figured I might as well get the Platinum trophy on it so I spent a few hours doing that. Had to drop down the difficulty for the Sigrun fight. I was making reasonable progress in the fight on normal but I wasn't enjoying it at all so said fuck that. I don't bother much with big epic games like this so I'm assuming that played a part in me enjoying this as much as I did. I can't compare it with Assassins' Creed or the likes so it all felt fairly fresh. Going to try a few smaller games next or I might just restart Battletoads, keep meaning to get back to that oddity.
  10. https://www.lgnewsroom.com/2020/11/lg-oled-tv-and-xbox-series-x-unleash-next-gen-console-gaming-experience/#:~:text=18%2C 2020 — LG Electronics (,Middle East and Asia-Pacific. I bet you feel very foolish for forgetting about LGs high profile exclusive partnership with Xbox. Silly boy.
  11. Who is pushing that rumour? I'll stick my neck out and say that I don't think they are going to increase the price until 2024. That's a big silly prediction that could make me look very foolish but that's my hot take.
  12. Looks shite. Pre-order cancelled. Hyperbolic statement 7.
  13. Looks alright. I liked the Court of Owls story in the comics but obviously that was built around Batman so I'm interested to see how what changes they make. That last sentence makes no sense at all. I'm leaving it there though, some things deserve public scorning. How what changes they make, christ.
  14. Trailer says 2022 so I guess the rumour this was being pushed back after the Arkham game got delayed was just the Internet playing "what would Pachter do" and coming to the wrong conclusion.
