  1. I pay 129 Rupees (~£1.35) a month for YouTube Premium. This is 129 Rupees more than I would pay for Stadia, but I wouldn't turn down a free pass.
  2. My wife's niece and nephew have a Switch account which is set to my Switch as the primary console, and they've bought this, so I can play it with my account it seems. I don't want to kick them off while they're playing (which I will do if I try playing it while they're playing it), so I'm wondering - is there a major downside to playing this offline? (i.e. in Airplane mode). We did this for Mario Kart 8 so they could use my game and it's never been a problem, but I'm wondering how much of the stuff in this is built in and how much is from syncing with servers or whatever. I've never found AC appealing but if I can give it a go for nothing I'd like to try it.
  3. I think the last time I played a game which gave me this sense of exploration was probably BOTW. I love it. My only complaints are that the first person platforming can be a little bit finicky, and the combat is made harder by being slightly clunky, but I'm having an absolute blast with it. The way the different sections are linked together is brilliant. I had a massive grin on my face after this:
  4. This game is wonderful. Some of the reviews made it sound like an open ended game lacking structure, but it’s got plenty. It’s just gives you lots of freedom, too. It reminds me of a bit of a cross between Metroid Prime and No Man’s Sky. I’m absolutely loving it.
  5. I picked this up in the Xbox sale for £14.99 and I'm really enjoying it. After Doom, I've been looking for something a bit more chilled out and open ended, especially with the currently lockdown stuff going on. This seems just what I need. All that to explore!
  6. CEX give you a free tracked postage label insured up to £100 and 10 days to get the game to them. This is great because you basically have a locked in price for 10 days and can happily keep playing while the price they offer in store drops. Why anyone would bother going into their shops, quarantine or no quarantine, is beyond me.
  7. This has sold me on Journey to the SP. Gonna give it a go.
  8. I think it depends how willing you are to wait for games to drop in price, etc. Nintendo Games are often cheaper at release than at any other point, so you can buy and sell them without losing too much money. If you finish a release quickly enough, you can usually get your money back - I bought Doom Eternal for £37 and solid it to CEX for £36. In general, I rarely play games again, so the option to get any money back at all is a good one for me. I hardly ever buy anything digitally.
  9. It's cheaper on physical and will keep it's resale value, so I would probably go for that. Have been thinking about giving it another go myself. It was £21 at Base, yesterday. I've got a fiver of Xbox credit expiring next week and need to spend it but nothing from that list is jumping out at me, particularly. Might try Journey to the Savage Planet, though it looks like a dead cert for Game Pass.
  10. I think you're clutching at straws here and probably don't believe what you've written, but you know they sell a console that is literally called the "All Digital Edition," right? And it released with little to no backlash? I don't think delivering on their (your?) utopian vision of "new consumer rights for digital" is going to ruin Xbox at this stage of the game.
  11. Nah, that's a load of rubbish. They can keep the rules around physical exactly the same and just say "we're allowing you to resell your digital games." There will be no backlash. But they haven't.
  12. Ignoring the fact that this is nonsense (what they were actually trying to do was take away ownership of your physical purchases, only allowing you to resell them through channels that they approved), what's stopping them from implementing this wonderful system you describe for digital content now?
  13. I suspect they’re doing it on a show by show basis, or something. This kid’s spidey show probably isn’t a priority so the timer starts only when the credits are completely finished. The whole thing is pretty poor, and it’s been out for months in the US. Baffling.
  14. It seems like this isn’t very good at skipping credits. My 3 year old, is having to sit through 90 seconds of credits and then a count down of “next episode in 15 seconds” in between 5 minute Spider-Man shorts. Are the apps on chrome sat and what not any better or is this the same across the service?

    Recent coffee purchases: Hasbean - El Limon (washed) - not a bad coffee. It's their cheapest coffee, so I'm not writing them off based on it, but I'm not particularly impressed. Very drinkable, though. Origin Coffee - Gahahe (Honey) - I ordered the natural but they sent me this accidentally. It's certainly an interesting coffee. Lots of earthiness to it, very, very tangy. I don't think I would drink it on a regular basis. I'm going to try the natural and order some other stuff from them. The 20% off is until the end of April. I'm also thinking about getting a moka pot to spice up my lockdown life. Are there pots people recommend in particular, or are they all much of a muchness. And should I be putting espresso roasts in there, or filter, or can you get away with either?
