  1. If you consider the two areas that Microsoft are weakest in, both the handheld and Japanese markets, then Gamespass on Switch is, commercial agreements aside, a no brainer. If you see yourself as more SaaS going forward then it makes even more sense. I'd love it to happen as I could probably ditch my PC then but i'm sure there are extensive barriers.
  2. Linux can have the tendency to remap usb devices on boot (they typically get added to /dev under ttyACMx or ttyUSBx, where x is an incremental number). If that reference is hardcoded somewhere that could be causing a problem. You can set a fixed reference, although I can't remember how to do it, google will sort you out though.
  3. You shouldn't get hammered for duty as you should be paying this at the point of purchase now anyway. If you just go through the checkout it should include all fees, if it doesn't then maybe leave it.
  4. My partner does the meal planning (and is very good with it) and we just put an Ocado and Riverford order through each week. Plan for 7 days worth of meals, with the freezer/takeaway as a bit of a backup. While the veg box is a bit more expensive it certainly seems to be considerably fresher than supermarket veg and as such lasts a lot longer. It tastes better too, as an added bonus. My partner does seem to hoard cookbooks, which isn't ideal, but she does make an effort to ensure we have a few new meals each week.
  5. Didn't spend much on games but I did finish building an arcade machine to play them on if that counts! I doubt you're tracking MDF sales from builders merchants though
  6. Streets of Rage 2 & 4 F-Zero X & GX Tetris
  7. It's a pretty thankless task all told, but your 3 options are likely to be Hyperspin, Coinops or BigBox (the paid version of Launchbox). You should be able to find complete, fully configured, downloads for most of these somewhere online, but your mileage may vary in terms of how well they work. They will all use retroarch for the majority of retro console emulation though. As long as you aren't doing anything weird with your setup then it should really work out of the box. To be honest the easiest way to get something working is to focus on a limited number of games, th
  8. I think Underhill might get a call up still, he's been in great form for Bath since coming back from injury and he was probably playing better than Curry before he got injured. It would be interesting to see if Gatland has a look at Sam Simmonds as well, European player of the year last season and would give you genuine pace at 8, I agree that Faletau will probably be first choice but if you wanted an impact replacement you could do a lot worse.
  9. I think it had probably run it's course by the WC final, and Jones even intimated as much, so god knows why he has stuck to it so rigidly for most games in the past 18 months. Jones has done enough to stay on in my view, his career record as a coach isn't bettered by many and at the very least he should get until the end of the next 6 Nations.
  10. I know there is a game left, and the title is still undecided, but other than Wales it's difficult to imagine any of the other teams will be particularly happy (I'm sure the French will be if they win, but I think they would still be disappointed at not winning the grand slam). Before the tournament I thought England would lose a couple of games (France + A N Other), this felt like a transitional year and I hope that is how it pans out. The entire tournament feels exactly like 2018 for England, and that turned out pretty well in the end. We'll just have to see how bold Jones is dur
  11. If you haven't got any you could give it a try with CT1 Multi-Solve, it's targeted more at DIY but seems to remove a lot of stubborn stuff.
  12. Nearly finished running LMoP for a second time (they killed Nezznar last night) and this time has gone a bit smoother, albeit made easier by the players taking a more active interest (specifically one, which has helped a lot). Really enjoyed this campaign, more so than the first time I ran it where it just seemed to run out of steam, for a few different reasons. Didn't make many changes to the overall structure apart from RP'ing a few of the NPC's slightly differently. They still don't know that the 'Gundren' that has been following them around was the doppelganger, but they'll fin
  13. Launchbox is probably the best Windows frontend at the moment, but you will still need to do a lot of the emulator configuration yourself, although pre-made images may exist.
  14. I doubt Sony dropping the price was part of any strategy. I think you can look at something like the Witcher 3 and say that the pricing over time may well have been some sort of long term strategy, knowing that it could well have a long shelf life (although i'm sure it has exceeded expectations), but the Sony move looks like a reaction more than anything else. Nintendo did the same with consoles (the Gamecube and N64 price drops so soon after, or at, launch). I doubt this is anything other than stores clearing overstocks though, i'd be surprised if many bargain bin
  15. The way Nintendo operate should be considered completely normal, it's how almost any sane company operates, and more importantly, remains sustainable. The question should really be, why do [insert almost any other developer] rip the arse out of their pricing at launch and struggle to create a sustainable business model?
