  1. I just needed to get that out. Thanks I feel better now.
  2. I own 3 3DS consoles, and I have a mountain of unplayed 3DS games, including all the classics (Bravely Default, Fire Emblem Awakenings etc.) and every now and then I resolve to actually finish one of them. It's then that I remember exactly why I haven't finished any; the bloody shitty battery life of the console and the fact it completely loses its state when the battery dies. I've been spoiled by the Vita I suppose, but I can't face replaying the same bit multiple times because I forgot to plug the machine in at least one every 24 hours. First world problems and all that.
  3. How high are these scores? Could you just beat them?
  4. I can't remember if this was in the previous version but I visited an "Uncharted" system yesterday, no Space Station and no buildings on the planets. One of the things I dislike about the game as it is now is that it feels far too populated (should have called it "Every Fucker's Sky, am I right?), so it was quite refreshing to feel genuinely alone for a bit. It helped that all the planets were incredibly hostile but chock full of valuable resources. So I spent a long time there struggling to stay alive, collecting loot, and making sure I had enough fuel to get back to a system with a space station in it. It felt more like what I would have wanted the atmosphere of the game to be by default.

    The Jazz Thread

    Apparently the last lost recording was only saved because Coltrane was allowed to take recordings of his sessions home on reel to reel tape to listen to later. This was strictly against Impulse's rules, but you know, it was John Coltrane. It was found in a box of stuff in his ex-wife's house. Crazy to think of the music Impulse might have allowed to disappear.
  6. Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, as a text adventure. You are waiting by a tree with a tramp. There is a path leading north. > go north What's the point? Here's as good a place as anywhere. I'd play it!
  7. I can't answer all those questions off the top of my head, but I did buy a PS4 Pro as part of the RDR2 bundle and it is indeed whisper quiet.
  8. When you say "banging on" do you mean he kept telling you what an erudite and witty bunch we are, or that he kept saying "you will not believe the collection of misfits and arseholes I've found online, you have to check this out"?
  9. Started this over the weekend and ended up putting 3 or 4 hours into it. Doesn't make a lick of sense, but I really like the battle system. It took a while for me to understand what was going on, and I still end up in trouble far too often, but each individual scrap is very engaging. I also really like the atmosphere, and the world the game is set in. This might be a JRPG I actually finish!
  10. It could be that there's nothing wrong with the battery, I had an issue where it seemed to drain almost immediately. But I just took the battery out and reinserted it, which forces the vita to re-calibrate something or other and it's been fine since. This is after using and charging the vita pretty much every day for a couple of years. So I'd try that first. It's easy to take apart and put back together assuming you have a screwdriver that fits.
  11. Does this help at all? https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/11893/solved-update-issue In particular this line: Another way is to remove the pipplware file from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder.
  12. I finished this yesterday, and actually it is rather good. The atmosphere is superb and the Lovecraft elements, including the design of the enemies, is spot on. The sense of exploration is really well done, and it shares something with Guacamelee that I liked, in that there's some clever environmental puzzles that require you to use the combat techniques you're given to traverse the environments. The hordes are a challenge especially later on, but you're given the tools to deal with them, you just have to be careful not to get cornered. I would give it four Shub Nigguraths out of five. Oh and I played most of it in handheld mode, but the TV definitely lets you see what's going on a bit more clearly. The screen does get crowded when dozens of enemies show up.
  13. If you ever wondered what that would sound like "synthed" up and accompanied by a recording of Jim Morrison reading his own poetry, then wonder no more!
