  1. Nintendo Switch

    The thing I like abut the switch is that is centalised around gaming. No youtube, iplayer, web browser - its about having fun and playing. The system boots quiickly, the seamless dock to undock transition is great making for a great pick up and play device. Also the games hardly patch and when they do they don't take long (ditto for the OS). These are the things I like about it. However what I'm not so keen on is the pricing of the games...but that's probably because I'm conditioned to the pricing on the PC and some degree the PS4...And Nintendo titles never seem to go down in price!
  2. Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    I had it but only ever played it for a couple of hours... remember the noise from the GD-ROM though... amazing that the DC only had 16MB main, 8MB video and 2MB audio RAM! Quite the achievement to get something like Shenmue onto the platform. Would be interesting to see what it plays like when the remasters get released!
  3. Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    I quite enjoyed the fact that events played out to time in the game it increased the immersion for me. It actually made me explore the world a bit more whist waiting for a significant event to happen. My main issue when playing the original was with the loading... and the grinding of the GD-ROM drive! Great game though.. although not 100% on re-buying it now... don't want to ruin the memories I have when playing through all those years ago! Remember playing this over winter one year just after I'd picked up a Dreamcast and felt I was living in a part of Japan at the time Especially liked the little touches like the decs coming out at Xmas time in the game (and because it was December when I was playing though it made a bit more of an impact), weather system and night/day cycles. Shenmue still is up there for me as the best adventure game I have played. Mainly because of where it was set and the era. What would be really interesting if something like Shenmue was remade for VR. Can you imagine that? Visuals cranked up, more natural controls etc.

    Yes sounds like its 16GB. I had the same symptoms when using the fake card on the PC. It would appear to write stuff then just after a while error. Depends how Nintendo have coded the disk writing firmware I guess as you may never know if has saved properly or not and just reports back as corrupted data all the time.

    Probably a fake card. Where did you buy it from? You can get utils on the web the check the actual capacity of cards out. What the fake card makers do is program the controller onboard the SD card to report back to the PC that it has say 128GB of memory, when in fact there could be as little as a GB actually physically on there. I had a fake san disk card posted out to me years ago from a supplier on Amazon - tell tale signs are the bar code on the packaging doesn't report back the content of whats inside and other subtle differences in the actual packaging design itself. Emailed Amazon are they refunded straight away never even asked for the card back. Of course the card could just be faulty too... EDIT More info here:- https://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/2008/09/02/h2testw-14-gold-standard-in-detecting-usb-counterfeit-drives/ If you have the time/energy you can get a memory card tester (HTestw) here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/H2testw.shtml . It will take a fair while though as it writes and reads to each byte of the card. (make sure you put it into a USB3 port if you want to test it quicker!)
  6. Nintendo Switch

    Yes not sure either. Think retro games are big at the moment and especially ones with 8-bit pixel art. Yes they were good back in the day but these days? The other thing I am getting a little tired off too is the volume of arty platform games about... seem to be lots around very pretty but the gameplay is very old school but then I grew up in the 80s and was inundated with them back then where arguably the best for concepts and ideas were born. So guess my view is slightly jaded as it feels like I have seen a lot of things before. Still I suppose having plenty of choice is great... Still haven't bought anything from Nintendos e-shop yet... hmmmm.... Still enjoying Mario and to some degree Zelda at the moment though.....
  7. Fortnite

    Ah great thanks for the update...
  8. Fortnite

    This is great fun.. managed to play in a squad with my brother at the weeknd... he on XBox One and me on PC. All worked well and no config issues! It was a really smooth experience. Think the PC downsizes the resolution and framerate to match that of the Xbox One though which kind of makes sense. The common thing you need to find each other is an Epic account as I couldn't seem to search Gold contacts on the PC (which makes sense as its using the Epic online system) but he could search the Epic gamers throught the XBox One. Used XBox live to hook up voice comms and all was good! Also downloaded this on the PS4 and thought you needed PS+ to play online to my suprise you don't its completely free! Anyone know if you need a gold sub on XBO to play or is it free on that too? (My son plays on an XBox One and has a gold sub that will be running out soonish!) Shame Sony can't hook up to allow people to play with their PS4s so all people can play in the same matches irrespective of hardware. Sometimes I'd just like to play on the sofa on the big TV rather than on PC. I'm still crap at the game though
  9. Fortnite

    Great thanks for the info! This is the exact scenario I have.....

    Anyone played Battle Royale in a squad comprising of PC and XBox one players? How well does it work? Just dipped in on this via the PC last night... it was confusingly fun...
  11. Should all games have an easy mode?

    Throught the "Normal" setting is mostly the easy setting these days... Trying to think of the last game I played with different settings... think it was Uncharted 4... left this on "normal" and throught it was quite fun to play though (and I'm no ninja gamer by any stretch of the imagination!!!)... did notice some settings that made the game easier... As mentioned there has to be a point where the game remains to be a challenge...otherwise well.. what is the point of playing? You may as well watch someone else play through on youtube or something... Although saying all that Cuphead can go and do one though.... Love and hate that game in equal doses... wish it had at least another difficulty setting.... I do enjoy the game but ...
  12. Myst 25th Anniversary Kickstarter

    Myst was a product of its era... Had a Myst collection a while back on the PC which I picked up cheap to try again with it but never got into it. Think I just preferred the LucasArts type adventures around that time. Very pretty though which I guess is mainly why it sold so well back in the day.
  13. Forza Motorsport 7

    Agree not sure what it is... think the lighting is most of it... Still a great game though. Just managed to get it re-installed on my PC....
  14. Nintendo Switch

    This looks great! I was just thinking the Switch needs a fun arcade racer just like this! No release date yet though bah... hopefully it will materialise towards the back end of this year. (this is also available as a Early Access games on Steam if anyone wants a sneaky go on it! Cost you £16 though..http://store.steampowered.com/app/396900/GRIP/ ). It will be nice to have a decent arcade racer that can be played in handheld mode... Are there any good arcade racers that anyone can recommend on Switch.. similiar to burnout?
  15. Nintendo Switch

    Sure it will be fine... looks fairly easy to remove looking at the videos on yt.... Just need a special screwdriver or an acylic pen that you you can melt into the screw head shape....
