  1. Low and behold. The successful Argos shoppers from yesterday are already sticking them up on Facebook for sale for over £100 over retail. I’ve got two local to me, one for £550 and one for £580 both showing their Argos orders.
  2. Jeez. £60!! What a joke...and if they don’t sell the code will either be wasted or they will buy the console and list that for stupid bloody money. Another person going without.
  3. That’s what I’m wondering. I’ve very kindly been supplied a code from Gigawatt but wonder if they’ll allow me to order given I wasn’t the original requester and the name and address won’t match. I guess we’ll find out when they call. Hopefully they won’t ask me to confirm the details I registered with and will just let me order. Worth a shot anyway.
  4. Yeah I had a few stock alerts for Smyths last week, which I checked instantly but was always showing as out of stock. Never even got as far as adding to basket. Fingers crossed for those that are still trying.
  5. Well I thought this was good fun. Really enjoyed it. Over the top violence and all the more fun for it. I chuckled at a couple of the bad guys getting taken out. Winced at others. Christopher Lloyd has a couple of great scenes where he looks like he’s having fun, but man it’s sad seeing Doc looking quite old now.
  6. Pretty sure neoELITE is right about Judgement Night. Here’s the clip.
  7. I won’t give up on it @MardiganX I’m gonna take a little break, catch up on some telly as a palate cleanser and then settle back in to it properly. I’ve been reading some early impressions in the Ghost thread, including your praise of it, so will give it a proper chance soon. I must admit, I did really enjoy what little combat I got to experience before switching it off and I realise that’s tip of the iceberg in terms of how you can level up.
  8. Interesting reading this comment, as 8 months on I'm now in exactly the same boat. I completed LoU2 Friday night and last night (Sunday) I loaded up Ghost of Tsushima, which I was excited to play. Like LoU2 it's also a beautiful looking game in HDR on my OLED, but the opening story, the voice acting, the control of the character all felt really flat and although I played a good couple of hours, it just failed to pull me in. I'm sure Ghost is a fantastic game, but I think I need to take a break before jumping back into something else. I was very late to the party with LoU. I originally had it on my slim PS3, but never played it much past the school. My son had come along and my gaming days took a back seat for a few years and I even sold my PS3. I eventually ended up picking up a PS4 Pro from a fellow forum member and had downloaded Remastered when it came to PS Plus fully intending to revisit it. So when my wife picked me up LoU2 for Christmas, I thought I'd better finally pull my finger out and crack on with part 1. I've been fortunate to play through Part 1, the Left Behind DLC and Part 2 (spoiler free) for the first time in succession over the last few weeks and I'm firmly in the 'loved it' camp. What an absolutely incredible gaming experience. I was blown away by how good Part 1 looked in HDR and and Part 2 is simply stunning in places. I can't remember the last time I was so invested in a game. I couldn't wait to play it each night, but also didn't want it to end. I can't recall ever being so emotionally invested in a game before either. Even now after finishing it, I regularly find myself thinking about it. I'm actually quite gutted I've finished it. I've also been paying both scores on Spotify for the past couple of weeks TL;DR Both games are so bloody good, it's temporarily ruined gaming for me I don't really have anything insightful to add to this thread. I just wanted to share the love. It's been really enjoyable reading opinions on both sides in both this and the main thread. I really do hope they make another soon, even if not in that world.
  9. My wife and I really enjoy this and we both just love Keith. I said to her last week when watching, I wish I was passionate about something, anything, as much as Keith is about pottery. I love that he gets emotional when he really takes joy in another person's work. It must be a real pleasure to do something for work which you love so passionately.
  10. Well that estimate was way off. I’ve just this minute had an update (two days after they accepted the repair) that it’s been fixed and is on its way back Happy with that. Let’s see how long this lasts.
  11. I have to say, the Nintendo repair procedure is pretty decent and no fuss posting it back. However, I’ve just been notified that there’s a three week estimate for repairs due to Covid Tempted to get one of these in the interim but understand they aren’t wireless and there’s no rumble: https://amazon.co.uk/dp/B07FSR93MQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_V9z-FbK593FKR
  12. Haha my son’s all over the bloody place with his. He’ll often run upstairs to the office when he knows I’ve finished work and will want me to jump on Fortnite with him.
  13. Well yes he can undock and use the little Switch kickstand to put the screen on a table, but it’s not quite the same portability as when using the Switch with the Joy-Cons connected.
  14. Hmm, just over a year of ownership and I'm now experiencing drift on the left blue neon controller. This was the newer Switch model with better battery life too. My 6 year old son kept complaining about his character in Fortnite glitching so I had a go and very quickly realised the dreaded drift had set in. I tried all the usual tricks such as reseting the Switch, updating Switch and Controller firmware, running the controller calibration but no joy. Today I've today sent off the controller for a warranty repair. Nintendo customer services said I wouldn't have to pay if the Switch was puchased less than two years ago. At least that's better than the standard one year warranty, but still shocking how widespread this issue is. If the controllers weren't so expensive I'd have bought a spare set. Thankfully I'd got him a 3rd party pro style controller for us to play together, so he can still use the Switch, but not in handheld mode. Hoping it doesn't take too long to get it back.
  15. Breakdance star Ozone, Adolfo Quinones dies aged 65. Cheese I know, but I loved Breakdance (Breakin’) the movie growing up. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/deadline.com/2020/12/adolfo-shabba-doo-quinones-dead-dance-pioneer-breakin-star-was-65-1234662999/amp/
  16. Really? It really doesn’t sound right and I’ve watched it more than once
  17. You’ve put that perfectly. Just how I experienced it. I think a lot of the stress of work and covid and everything else I’ve been carrying inside just poured out of me at that moment. It was pure joy and I really needed this today
  18. I almost couldn’t believe what I was watching. What a great finish. I got quite emotional watching that. It caught me off guard.
  19. What a cracking episode! I have no knowledge of the EU and haven't started makig my way through Clone Wars yet, but why do Ashoka's lightsabers sound different? At least they did to me.
  20. I think only Hulu or the high seas at the minute.
  21. I know what you mean... Still enjoyed it though. Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll check it out.
  22. Yeah I'm being a little generous with the 4 but it caught me in a good mood. It was just what I needed last night
  23. Yes and it's really good fun. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Like Edge of Tomorrow, it plays out each repeat just differently enough in a way that keeps it interesting and fun. It is essentially Groundhog day as an action film, which you could say about Edge of Tomorrow, but this shares more than one similarity with the former in some of the plot beats, if only very minor. Although there is some very iffy CGI, the action is well shot and choreographed and the movie whips along. The plot is paper thin and only serves to put Roy (Frank) in that situation, which is fine as the enjoyment comes from watching Roy's journey (over and over) and not a particularly clever plot. There are a couple of plot holes, as always with films like this, but it didn't spoil the enjoyment. I laughed out loud a couple of times. Gibson is great if a little wasted in the role. I know he's a horrible shit but I still love him. Given his action movie chops I would have enjoyed to see him do more given the background of his character, but we only get a glimpse. He's more the cool/suave kingpin character in this. I'm not overly familiar with Grillo outside of the Marvel films, but he's a decent leading man, charismatic and funny. I will check out more of his output. Perhaps not Jiu Jitsu I've got to give it a 4/5.
