  1. Oh no I have to wait longer before adding this game to my insane backlog! Sony has personally attacked me! Jim Ryan bad!!!
  2. So just when I'm about to get around to playing this I find that there will be more of the game to play? Awesome!
  3. I know longer have any interest in playing any game in which you do not specifically play as a cat

      @MidnightDragon That's a day one for me, then!

      My cat is demanding I get it.

      The game had my curiosity, now it has my attention.

  4. Fantastic update. Now it just needs VRR functionality and hardware-based FPS boost for older games akin to Series X|S and it's the console of dreams
  5. *Looks at insane backlog* Ehh, I'm fine with a delay I think
  6. My band have our first gig tonight after 16 months, first with our new singer and a lot of new gear. Excited and nervous as all hell. I missed live music a lot but there was a lot that I did not miss as well. Worst thing is people yelling out songs- folks, we know what songs we've got, thanks.

      Not yet, the guy we have doing our online stuff has long COVID so we have no real online presence at all right now.

  7. Thankfully the legendary Bob Odenkirk is stable. Undetected heart conditions have taken a few people I've known over the years, young and old alike, it is frightening to even think of it.

      Had no idea he collapsed on set, hoping he recovers. Can’t wait for season 6 of Better Call Saul!

  8. Welp, this was the thread that broke the proverbial camel's back for me; "SJW" no longer has any meaning because now it really definitively appears to mean "everything I don't like" to most people. Also, folks warring over a Daily Fail article? Is this Facebook I've wandered back onto?
  9. Speedrun of Resident Evil Village done as well as Knife only- used the LZ Answerer thanks to the download. Overall, easy and I suspect Village of Shadows difficulty will be handy enough since I have Infinite Ammo, 50 first aid meds and resources to craft another 50 so I have the plat in the bag... except for these damned Mercenaries stages. They're kicking my ass. I haven't a single S rank yet and I have four stages done. And these are the easy ones? Dammit, hate that they made this mode mandatory for the platinum. 

  10. I have now done two playthroughs each of both Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Resident Evil Village and I conclude that I love them both for their own different reasons. Aside from the last hour or so, Village doesn't even really lean all that much into action like most people seem to be saying; sure, it is very much in the spirit of Resident Evil 4 and that game's departure from the series' norms, but it still retains quite a lot of 7's essence too. One thing definitely holds true: Ethan Winters is a terrible protagonist and I hope they bring back a familiar face to play in future entries or at least a new character who is much more interesting.

      I enjoy both games. RE7 is the scariest RE game to date in my opinion. Village is RE4 but in first person. I will give the edge to RE Village as RE4 is an all time favourite for me. Ethan definitely improved in Village, but that isn't saying much considering how terrible of a protag he was in RE7.

       

      Chris has been in a mainline RE game 4 games in a row now, it's time to bring some familiar faces back, as you said. I personally want to see Rebecca back. Maybe that rumoured Resident Evil Outrage game on Switch may do what Revelations 1/2 done and bring someone back.

      Good for you.

       

      Also I had pfizer for both and besides a sort of sore arm didnt have any side effects.

      I took both shots pretty well. Good for you. :)

      Hope you get off with just some stiffy armness, like me.

  12. #107- RATCHET & CLANK 2 [PS3] He Went Commando Enjoyment: 8/10 Difficulty: 3/10 Time: 4 days, 4 hours, 22 minutes / 30 hours Rarity: 11.2% Very Rare (PSN) / 34.43% (PSNProfiles) Challenge: Super Skilled- Attain All 30 Skill Points A big improvement on the original, the sequel to Insomniac's 2002 action platformer delivers on everything that makes the series great. Known by the subtitle Going Commando in the States but as Locked and Loaded here in Europe, the sophomore entry kicks things up in terms of weapons, gunplay and humour. Picking up where the original left off, the heroic titular duo are brought to a new galaxy with an assortment of new worlds to explore in order to unravel the secret of a nefarious (not in this game) conspiracy to cause chaos. Ratchet begins without Clank for a few worlds, eager to prove himself a hero while Clank enjoys the cozy life, though fates conspire to bring them together once again and when you get access to more abilities, more areas unlock in the worlds encouraging repeat visits, just like the original. Some of the useful tools from the previous entry return but new gadgets and weapons are made available to Ratchet and it is a much better selection than before, the first proper glimpse into the genius and wackiness of the arsenal. Everything has gotten an overhaul; the health system is much more robust with Ratchet earning experience points for each enemy kill allowing him to gain more health with each level-up and stay in the fight longer. This is somewhat countered by different enemies doing varying degrees of damage but Ratchet can also upgrade his armour to take less damage. Most of the weapons can also be levelled up by killing enemies with them, have special upgrades attached by paying with platinum bolts (replacing the gold bolts of the original) and even Omega versions of them being available to purchase in the second playthrough. Bolts are much more plentiful and it is much easier to get the associated trophies with no need to leave my controller rubberbanded overnight! There is a noticeable difficulty spike in the later worlds, but it can be easily offset by just grinding up a few bolts and purchasing the RYNO II which makes the endgame trivial- the final boss didn't even hit me once and was down in seconds. Another notable difference is the change of voice actor for Ratchet to James "AH-HA-HA-HA-HA" Arnold-Taylor alongside a change in his personality to a more measured and eager hero from obnoxious skater punk. Like I said, the difficulty is significantly higher but can be offset by a bit of grinding for better weapons and more health. Some of the skill points and botls were a bit obnoxious to get and some of the weapon level ups took too long and were best left to Challenge mode where the experience gains for kills are upped substantially. You don't even need to get the final weapon or any of the Omega variants for trophies so it's not as bad as it could have been. Overall, there isn't much to say in terms of negatives really. The story ends a bit abruptly but it is outrageously hilarious and enjoyable even after all these years. My next stop in the series will of course be the next sequel, Ratchet and Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal but after that is uncharted territory for me since I've only ever played the original trilogy aside for some multiplayer stuff in later titles.
  13. The phrase in full was "Glorious PC Gaming Master Race" and was coined by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw in his Zero Punctuation episode about The Witcher. He actually meant it as a dig, directly referencing the Nazis but of course since people erroneously take Yahtzee seriously from time to time it caught on as some sort of call to arms by PC elitists, though it is used in mockery of them as well.
  14. Assassin's Creed III [PS3] at 5.18% as of 22 July 2021. It's getting rarer all the time though so it could find itself in Ultra Rare soon enough
  15. For all you guitar players out there (more than likely way better than me so forgive me for this noob post) I just ordered my first proper electric guitar amplifier after a few years of playing through a cheap Peavey bass amp: a Marshall DSL40CR. I did a good bit of research and I came to the conclusion that it best suited me, my Gibson Les Paul 2019 Classic and my plans to get a band together and play some gigs when the madness subsides. Should arrive this week so I'm looking very much forward to being able to rock out closer to the way I have always wanted to!
