  1. So my PS4 has finally given up after struggling for the last couple of months. I'm pretty sure the problem is the HDD so I'm thinking I might try replacing it as I don't want to buy a new one with Ps5 on the horizon. I'm just not sure which drives are compatible these days. I was thinking about one of these if any one can confirm it'll work. I'm also going to post for an original 500gb one in the Wanted thread incase anyone has one they've replaced (I gave mine away when I replaced it back in the day). 


  2. Can anyone recommend a decent football game? I'm not wanting fifa, just something that's pretty arcadey. I got Super Arcade Soccer and it's almost quite good but suffers from some awful bugs. 

  3. Good point about just playing what we've got. Too many games on that unfinished pile already. Still good to hear recommendations though. I've at least got a wishlist for future sales. 


    I'm going to need an SD card before long I suspect. Is there anything out of the ordinary needed or just what ever is on sale?

    Welcome to the club :)

    It all depends what types of genres and game styles you like really.

    But has a broad jumping off point, you could check out this list which shows the highest rated Switch games and then could read the descriptions and find ones you likes the genre of, most will have a trailer for you to quickly check out too.

    There is also a sale on the eShop for you to look through. Also, don;t forget quite a few games do have demo's, so no harm in downloading those to check out games prior to purchasing.



    That list is perfect. Many thanks. 

  5. Another new Switch owner here. Got what I want from the big titles for now (Mario Odyssey and Zelda  BOTW) but no idea about what to look at from the online store. Is there anything which is essential? Sorry, asking a question which I'm sure has been answered plenty of times already. 

  6. Found it. Not sure why that was so hard to do d. Downloading now.


    Trackmania is amazing isn't it? Especially when it flicks to first person view. So why can't you just select first person? And why are the vr tracks so short? Seems such a wasted opportunity.

  7. Finally made the move and had one of the best gaming nights in ages last night. I'm so impressed by the quality and how immersive it all is. 


    I bought the Mega Pack and got download codes but Wipeout is just a digital art book, not the game. Is that correct? Seems a bit misleading.

  8. Not managed to take the plunge yet but I'm hopeful that I'll be picking one up soon. I only have the original PS4 tho and someone told me it's not compatible as you need a Pro. Is that true or poo? 

  9. I've just started in this having had it given for Christmas and it's certainly grabbing me.


    Since downloading the legacy pack I've now got 3 versions of Hitman installed tho: the original 2016, and two versions of Hitman 2 (one which needs the disc and the other doesn't but seems to be missing content). Can I just delete the original and the spare V2 copy?

  10. Thanks for the advice. It does seem a great deal but I'm a bit put off by the all the cables you get with the MK1. Other than that, is there much difference?


    Not to worry - I found this to explain the difference.

  11. Seriously considering getting me some VR action after trying to pursued myself that I don't really need it. Can anyone recommend a good deal / bundle? I was looking at this one but I'm not sure if it's the version 2 headset - anybody know?

  12. I've been doing a passenger mission for the last three days (with a few detours along the way). Didn't realise how far it would be, it's my first go at this type of mission, but was determined to complete it tonight. Right moaning cow she was, complaining all the time and criticising. Couldn't wait to get rid of her. Anyway, got to the final destination and she announces that I now need to take her back to the starting point! Chuffin' bugger I thinks, still, better get on with it so I can cash in my reward. So off we go on the more direct, return journey. Then, with three jumps left to our destination, she announces that I've taken too long and the mission is failed! To add insult, the cheeky cow somehow managed to eject my passenger cabin as part of the bargain. Bloody frustrating this game at times! Then I noticed the new Community goal and set off in search of cigars.

  13. For those that have just gotten the Hotas 4, how's the throttle control on yours? Unfortunately, when mine is in the 'centre' position, it's registering as being slightly off centre resulting in my ship having slight reverse thrust.  It's not a huge issue but it's off putting so considering trying to get it replaced. Unfortunately, I can't find any deadzone settings.

    Join usssssss.


    I bought the Thrustmaster Hotas yesterday. For the first couple of hours I wasn't sold. I was doing better with my joypad. You also lose some functionality, looking around the cockpit is nowhere near as good as with a joypad, and there are no buttons to make up for the touchpad options you have. So you're relying on more button combos.


    However, the level of control the hotas affords the player renders all that pretty much irrelevant. Have to say, the real game changer is actually the throttle more than the stick. More precise (not to mention easier) throttle control is a big advantage in combat. 


    I still need to tweak the settings, as I'm finding the vertical thrusters all but useless thanks to the default buttons and their placement, and I used those a lot when flying with a pad. But yeah, overall I'm impressed, and it's a whole new level of immersion. Makes flying the Anaconda even more fun. :D


    Picked up mine today too. Not had chance to use it yet likes, but for anyone else tempted (PS4), it was reduced to £47.99 today as a clearance item at Argos.

    Yep. All PSVR games must work on all PS4s. Thing is, I'm not convinced even the Pro has the grunt for this game.

    Slightly off topic, but I wonder how long they will continue with this policy? What happens, for example, when the PS4 Pro v2 comes out - will games have to run on all three iterations? I do like the theory of it, but it can't be sustained indefinitely.

    Worth getting this on the PSN store for 4 quid? :) Really like the Equinox/Pentagram style graphics.


    It's excellent.  Certainly worth £4, particularly if you ever played games in the '80s.
