    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    How did you find it @joffocakes? MK9 was near impossible as you had to spend 24 hours, at least, with every character.

    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    If anyone fancies a few bouts, feel free to add me on PSN: "smithstock". I've played the franchise a decent amount of the last few iterations but I've yet to fully sink the time into a character on this - I've finished story mode, training and am now going through the arcade tower to finish each character backstory and mop up a few trophies. Quite liking Scorpion in this version but I've used Sub-Zero a lot in the past so I probably won't stray too far from those guys, however, I've really enjoyed playing as Jax. He seems to be one of the easiest characters to pick up outside of Liu Kang.

    The Golf Club 2

    My thoughts, just in case @Theholyhogg, @PeteBrant and @DC Lemon were thinking of investing... It's completely and utterly lifeless, devoid of personality and lacking in any real charisma. It comes across that way from the outside and it's actually worse whilst playing; the commentary is stale and the graphics are really mediocre too. Gameplay wise, I'm not a fan of the mechanics but I can understand why people like them. I much prefer the timing based system of EG, and I even struggled to get to grips with that after the change from the Vita version. If there was an alternative mode or system, I might have invested more time getting used to it - I'm not a huge fan of analogue or gauging based mechanics outside of Trials or Worms. Everything else seems to be par for the course (pun intended) lots of customisation and level editing features but ultimately locked behind game modes that are neither enticing or engaging to play which is a shame because the Tour is a big draw for me. Everybody's Golf though, still, is not only the best golf game going but is one of the best sports games I've played this generation - up there with Rocket League. It's a shame then, that the PGA license is actually even less of a draw for me, given that everything in EG feels tactile and satisfying - it just ultimately lacked features and post launch support.

    EFL Championship 2018/19 - All aboard the rollercoaster

    Too true. As much I'd love to see Derby throw a wobbler, we still need a win and we'll get tanked by whoever we would have to face next. I'm optimistic, but certainly if won't be deserved if we do pull off a miracle. #KarankaIn

    The Golf Club 2

    Haven't played it yet man, I have my reservations. It looks devoid of any kind of personality and the gameplay doesn't look as refined as EG, that being said, I'll jump in for around the £15 mark. Hit me up if you do too! EDIT: Currently £16 at Base.com!

    Yeah UE4 is great, how are you finding it all around? Do you mind if I ask which course you're involved in?
  7. smithstock

    Which classics have you still not seen?

    Agreed. Way of the Dragon is incredible, the colliseum fight sequence is excellent too.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    It's one of the best value games of this generation. £16 is an absolute steal.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    Drop me a line if you're getting back into this (smithstock - PS4). You're right about the difficulty ramping, I think you can get to Level 70 from about 20 mins play on Torment 4 though you're best sticking on the most fluid, not the hardest difficulty, after that.
  10. Is there a topic for this? Comes from the producers of Drive and Nightcrawler. Love the look of J.K. Simmons, he's criminally underused talent.

    Battlefield V

    I watched it 6 times, I couldn't spot anything either.

    The Game Development Thread

    I recommend using an asset pack called "Customizable Grid" for materials @Broker - drop me a PM and I'll sort you out On a related note, does anyone fancy doing a weekly couple of hour dev chat thing via Discord etc? I was wanting to get in on a regular thing to play about in engine and chat about what we are trying to achieve, help each other out and soundboard ideas.

    Ultimate Team

    Lol at the above "EA Theory". You're spunking cash on the game and EA want to give you num nums for your effort, this time you got an extra special treat to keep you hooked - the same as any prominent YouTuber - done. "Pack Luck" is a load of guff when this tripe has been happening for 4+ years. In other news, I'm up to 142k - barely played the game and just keep rinsing BPM several times a day. I don't have the time for competitive FIFA anymore so this casual engagement suits me just fine.
  14. I loved the feature too, there's been some great write ups in recent issues, especially in the columnist sections. Is everybody banding together for RDR2? Feel free to add me on PS4: smithstock It's coming up to my four yearly ritual of booking the day off work, gathering supplies and setting up the faraday cage - ready to hunker down and smash it. I don't doubt it might be a better experience for having a slow burn but I don't get opportunities like this very often - I'll be sinking in plenty of time, especially given it's my birthday just before launch.

    The random discussion thread

    Aye I don't think it's worth trying to go lone wolf in a squad when everyone dies. It's cool for an epic win but everyone else is twiddling thumbs whilst you try. Battlefield though, has been on a downward spiral, barring the spring patch, since BF4. It's a different kettle of fish to CoD (pun unintended) and the gunplay is so vanilla. With the introduction of Blackout; you've got the scale of Battlefield, a refinement of PUBG's mechanics and the tactile gunplay of CoD, at 60fps. It's not quite FIFA vs Pro Evo but it could be the start of goodnight Vienna, and that is coming from a Battlefield veteran.

    The random discussion thread

    Yeah it's been really good. Quads on Blackout is my go to shooter experience now. We've been unlucky a few times when a strategy has been scuppered but that's the name of the game. I think I'll give Battlefield a swerve, at least initially, Red Dead will take up too much of my time and I'll save Assassin's Creed for winter.
  17. I used to be really into Rally too, don't really follow it these days but I see the results sometimes and it appears that it's got to "Schumacher" levels of dominance. I first got into it when Loeb came on the scene but he was against Sainz, McRae, Gronholm, Burns, Martin, Solberg etc.

    The random discussion thread

    BFV is the same as BF1? Jack Wilshere gate? Lol, give your head a shake son. Anyway, I've also got Black Ops 4 and it is fantastic, though I might be skipping Battlefield purely due to lack of time. I still consider BF4 to be one of the best shooters of this gen, post-spring patch. That being said, I've got a 3 day weekend reserved for RDR2 and it's likely it should arrive earlier than that too. There's a good bunch of us that play GTAV regularly and the community is much like what the BAP league used to be, friendly and in good spirits, before the cliques and rando behaviours set in. Feel free to get involved or give me a ping towards release.

    Black Ops 4 RLLMUK PS4

    Yes please fellas, loving Blackout so I'll get on that.
  20. The sales drop is purely physical, digital sales are up. That's a trend across the board with loads of titles.

    I'm on and off these days but if I'm about I'll drop in. I find it good overall, I think there is more skill required in areas that were too tolerant of poor positioning before. I think winning the ball from goal kicks, getting in place before free kicks, and keeping within 15-yard passing ranges is really satisfying. It doesn't seem yet, there's a sure fire way to dominate in those areas though I don't feel the same way about keeper reactions and corners. They definitely need work.

    The Golf Club 2019

    I think I'll jump in for sub £20. I'm in no rush to get it and it seems light on content, I can manage with EG in the meantime.
