    Do you prefer physical books or Ebooks?

    Generally, physical books are much nicer - and in an ideal environment I much prefer them. I tend to read more on Kindle though for the convenience factor (holidays, public transport, in bed without the lights on).

    Can anyone recommend a good cheap coffee grinder? We make coffee with a Hario drip filter and with a Moka pot. I don't mind either a hand grinder or electric. I'm assuming the £20 ones on Amazon are a bit shit. Are they? Actually, I had an electric grinder before (I don't remember the brand) but I couldn't get a fine enough grind for the Moka pot.

    Astro Bot really is amazing. It can’t be said enough. It’s the best gaming experience I’ve had this year (and maybe last year too).

    PlayStation VR

    I’ve recently been playing much more standing up. I started Astro Bot standing then tried to switch to sitting. What I’ve found is (for me at least) it works much better standing. For some reason the tracking seems much better and less likely to unalign. I seem to have more movement (despite being closer to the camera) before going out of bounds with the controller. And I feel less sick.

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    I’d rather play sitting down, but was thinking it might be awkward to dodge and headbutt stuff while sitting.

    I'm on world 3 now and so far it's been astonishing. Does everyone play standing up?
  7. For me, the PS4 version was worth it for 60fps. I'm not bothered about visual changes - I didn't notice any of them apart from the bonfire effect looking a bit more generic/bland than I remembered.

    Biggest discrepancy in gaming - your opinion Vs everyone

    The Arkham games (at least the ones I've played - I've never played the first) are a bit dull. I've played through more than half of both Arkham City and Arkham Knight but just couldn't get on with them for some reason. I can see they're good, well made games with lots and lots of effort put into them, but I just find them unengaging for some reason.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I’d prefer a Firewatch style map. You have to open it in front of you and it doesn’t have an arrow or any icons on it. A map and a pencil.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Seeing as the adverts don’t load half the time (on my console) along with the app icons, they might be better off just sticking ads on the lower section of the home screen - like they do with other shit. As much as I hate ads.

    I just don't understand why streaming apps have their own app you have to open first. It makes no sense - it's not like they're going to clutter the home screen, you'd just bung them in a folder.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Early reviews didn't score that well either. The Official PlayStation Magazine (which had an really early review copy) gave GTA 3 an 8/10 in a short half-page review IIRC. By their standards of giving any old shit 9s and 10s, an 8 was pretty average. Edge gave it a 6. I really loved the first two games so bought it on release. I remember playing it all day and being pretty amazed. It's a shame, but I've found the more recent GTAs very impressive but a bit dull.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Is anyone else's PS4 really picky about opening the TV/streaming apps folder? If I've played a game first, it just hangs and the folder won't open (actually sometimes it eventually opens but it means waiting 10 minutes plus) - so I have to restart before using Netflix, Prime or IPlayer or whatever. I'm on a pro but I don't think that's the issue. I wish Sony would sort it out or at least allow streaming apps to be pinned directly to the home screen.
  14. I’ve got all trophies/achievements for only 2 games: the rerelease of Grim Fandango and Oblivion. It seems like too much effort most of the time. I’ve always had the trophy notifications off by default (along with other pop up notifications).

    Great Gaming Shortcuts.

    Getting the Banshee early in Halo (by knocking it upside down with a rocket launcher) then skipping half the level.
