  1. what, that actually makes it sound even more amazing. Also, not having a pop, because individual circumstances whatever, but I remember the comments on the Matrix thread (“my pirated copy looked shit”) and also, a 5 screen Picturehouse opened 3 minutes from my house and if I think about it too much then I get anxiety as there’s no fucking way it’s sustainable seeing as it’s empty all the time.
  2. Has this been on the high seas? You can always tell how a movie thread loses its positivity once the 1080p PC speaker boys get on board. Gonna swing over to the Picturehouse at some point in the next few days so it better still be good.
  3. Hmm how do I boycott 5% of Nintendo? Stop at 949 Power Moons?
  4. Basically, when will GT7 and Horizon show up and can I hold out buying them until then? I reckon max two years after release. I don’t think Ratchet and Clank is on there and that’s nearly a year old. Good service if you don’t FOMO, like old games or are patient but they probably need some daily crack to hook up day to day players, like a sports or shooty live service.
  5. Tbh, if you buy a PS5 next month and sub to the top tier, you get an astounding array of PS5 AAA games that were selling for £70 (rrp) just a year or two ago. Looking at the list I must’ve have spent/wasted a good £500 on the games they are giving away. It’s gotta be an essential no-brainer for new users (whilst mugs like myself look at the list and think, yes! I haven’t played Ghosts of Tsushima DLC!).
  6. ah yeah, to be fair I’ve got all my virtue banners equipped (BLM, Trans rights and doing a lot of Vault of Glass) and it’s always lovely to see them on others out and about in the game world. I guess all fansbases have wronguns and I’ve played with a fair few Americans with awful views
  7. Or maybe both of those things? The boys under that post, especially the ones who shout “You can’t fix the broken Titan helmet in Trials of Osiris but find the time to go on about politics and alienate half the community” are definitely their audience
  8. “Jim, could you make sure you get the sourdough out of the oven. Jim? JIIIMM!??!”
  9. If anyone was hanging on for the result, 36% of you said no – Jim is innocent 64% of you said yes – Jim is guilty I don’t know how these Guardian Judge Judy and executions work but I guess the punishment of Jim being found guilty is that he will now be forced to replace all his computer games with DVDs of Fleabag and take her out leafleting for the Lib Dems
  10. Yeah fair I guess. I haven’t looked at any numbers, demographics in those industries would tally but there are still a lot of god-fearing Republicans out there.
  11. If those Gamer replies under Bungie’s tweet shows you anything, the Keep Politics Out of Games nuts make up a significant proportion on their audience. And it’s very likely a significant number of Sony’s staff too.
  12. Managed to track down the very last Xbox wireless controller in the UK. In the Microsoft Shop in Oxford Circus. Yes! Gotta have one, there’s a fucking UNSC Warthog parked in the window. Do you have red? No. Blue? No. Black? No, we only have Robot White. White you mean? Ok. “Enjoy your gaming!” she enthusiastically bids as I shrink away mortified that she thinks I’m that sort of “gamer”
  13. Can confirm MGS4 going in a few weeks. Said I only have until the 27th May to play. What’s that? Like one cutscene?
  14. The UEFA licence and Champions League must be worth much much more to them. Who really plays internationals on that? Boot up as Wales and all the players are really slow and rubbish (and therefore factually inaccurate). Also never not funny that you play Champions League games on Xbox and it’s all Sony advertising.
  15. ha I’m getting a refund on broken controller 1 from Game as they lost the return and I’m not entirely sure if they interpreted that as refunding the whole Xbox. If it is the whole thing F them. Good luck with your new controller, maybe remap Heavy Kick to a face button!
  16. thanks, that’s actually wild. Didn’t know it could do that.
  17. Why is there a global shortage of Xbox controllers? Literally everywhere I’m looking I can’t find one (MS website has mid June delivery). Is everyone’s RB button breaking down. Might pump for an Elite just because it’s the only thing available.
  18. FIFA Delegate 2030 where you play a potential host nation with a lot of cash to either divert into an official’s hands, buy slaves or hire Jermaine Jenas. Stamina bar based on how successful you are at sportswashing your abysmal human rights record.
  19. nice, managed to get a return label after figuring out that they only do call backs on landlines (and I had to plug in my landline). Moaned that all my controllers are busted but they didn’t care. Just gonna play PS5 for a few weeks but it’s dawned on me there’s nothing I want to play on there!
  20. yeah that’s the problem. The end credit scene has no relationship to the stages of grief and acceptance they series was going for throughout the 6 episodes. Clearly inserted by the Machine afterwards to sell a movie.
  21. Didn’t expect that to be so Evil Dead or who the Big Bad was gonna be and how Bad they were going to be. Which is surprising as I rinsed all the trailers. Was alright though, plenty of fan service tick boxes to go “yeah I know that thing!”, e.g the TV theme song blast. re: woman, they totally sacked off and reversed the character development and nuance of the TV series, where she had accepted her fate in the end, just so that she could go H.A.M. with power in this one. Best/worst bit was making the multiverse expert wait outside so that the men could have a chat.
  22. Hit-trading and beat them with stats
  23. Elden Ring killed the RB on two controllers. Couldn’t hold out and looking for a replacement, except they’ve sold out practically everywhere. Might get an elite series but are they not meant to be even more shoddy in terms of build quality?
  24. yeah getting in touch with support is a nightmare. Two controllers waiting to be replaced so no Xbox for a month as I won’t be F’d to buy another one.
