    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    Digital sales aren't included in the charts. [/thread] Eurogamer keep saying in every sales article that digital sales can't make up the difference, but they have no basis on which to make that assertion. EA, for example, expect digital to account for 74% of their sales in this financial year, which is up from 49% in 2015 and 67% in 2018. The market is clearly moving in a way which makes the traditional charts data next to useless.

    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    Not Khaotic Kontrols? Disappointing.
  3. Great to see that this has smashed through the goal! Yay!
  4. Trials Rising Friends leaderboards made front and centre when looking at / selecting tracks, as in previous games of the series. This probably isn't a minor change to make, but the map UI is absolutely atrocious and everything would be much better if there was just a linear track progression list... again, as in previous Trials games.
  5. Is this a loading thing, maybe? It's incredibly annoying, regardless.

    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    Yep, you can 'make' a keyboard on the device, or get it to run a sequence of notes with a sequencer module, or you can use a sequencer to make generative music if that's your thing and you make the right connections. I haven't tried making a synth patch myself yet, but there are a few preset patches on the machine using subtractive and FM synthesis that sound surprisingly big/good, and of course you can put those through the amazing FX modules. Yesterday I made a guitar patch that was so sublime in terms of reverb and delay, I could have cried!

    Oculus Quest - 21st May - £399 (64GB), £499 (128GB)

    I'm stupidly tempted by this. 'Stupidly', because I already have a PSVR. But a machine that's wireless with decent controllers... aaaaargh. I'll wait until after you guys have had a play and (hopefully) a consensus is reached on how good the machine is, but the idea of driving into work with a wireless Beat Saber machine to play on in lunchtime sounds so goddamn awesome. If it wasn't less powerful than the PSVR, I would already have placed an order! That convenience factor could be the tipping point for me. Playing PSVR is a right hassle. I mostly love it once I've started, but the Move tracking does my head in for games like Superhot.
  8. John did, however: So I dunno about that. Would be an awesome moment, but contradicting previous events.
  9. That was absolutely fucking amazing.

    Synths and Similar - an electronic music gear thread

    Received it on Friday and it’s totally amazing. The only limit is imagination! I’m still making my way through the basics, but using the 2 inputs and outputs I can make a patch for vocals and guitar simultaneously on separate paths, including loopers, loads of FX, expression pedal input, sequencers... it’s ridiculous.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    No wonder Netflix are happy buying up distribution rights for movies that barely trouble 50% on RT and making trashy TV.

    Vampire Weekend

    Haven't listened to it yet but I loved their last one. Hoping this will be as good.
