  1. Difficult one for me as my sons (10&14) live right their Mum. She doesn't really regulate their time - eldest is fine as he has an hour or so and moves onto something else. The youngest though is getting more and more addicted to Fortnite It's not only the time but cost too and as time goes on he won't do anything else. When he comes over to me at weekends ALL device play is banned completely and recently he's been going cold turkey and continuously asking on the Sunday when he is going back. Difficult situation to approach with the Ex as she has them most of the time and with the current COVID situation is working from home looking after them too. Once school work is done Fortnite keeps him quiet. I got recommended an app called Screentime. It's great they can "earn" time credits for jobs that they do etc. Worth a look - it's a sub based service. The Xbox also has great controls for limiting play just make sure that the childs account is set up as a sub account of an adults. You can also control what the child can buy, gift them credit and monitor usage. It's a tough one. I'd be a lot more draconian if I was still living day to day in the same house as my Sons. Might have to chat with the ex at some point about the problem and work around a solution. Just don't want to open a can of worms either.
  2. This definitely gets it from me for technical achievement and immersive environment.
  3. This game. Wow just wow. Love the level of interaction in this. Just feels like another world. City 17 has never felt so oppressive! This is a benchmark game for VR and just shows what can be done with the technology. Really impressed.
  4. Just finished Across The Grooves on the Switch. Really enjoyed it great audio visuals.
  5. Love the Fractal design cases. Well built, designed and love the simplicity of the way they look. Minimalist.
  6. I can play my PC sat at the desk or in front of the TV on the couch using Steam Link. Much prefer sat in my comfy big chair at the desk especially with driving games. Usually end up playing the Switch for the odd hour or so on the couch though. Great to have options like Steam Link on the PC though found it works well enough when needed!
  7. No worries.... Think all things are aligning in my life at the moment! Just had a job offer, got a cheap GPU upgrade for my PC and just was thinking feck it I'll buy some VR games before I start my new job and low and behold HL:A was in the sale and BattleZone Gold. Two games I've been wanting to play for a while! Then another £5 of when buying the two games. Jeez? Not a bad month so far....So all good here.... However did think for a brief moment I know know where the "PC Master Race" phrase came from Just been on the game of an hour. Outstanding. Feel like I'm in city 17... the first time I bumped into the combine synths / police I jumped back.... Exceptional.
  8. Agree 110%. Why people still use this is beyond me. Never really heard it until some consoles got released a while back. PC is the most flexible gaming device you can buy. Recently got some mods for Assetto Corsa that allowed me to drive around a now non existent Brooklands race circuit in a 1930s Auto Union race car. With VR and wheel. Just awesome. You want an experience your way there is always something out there that will get you it.
  9. Well only just got a graphics card capable of running it and got Rift S back at the end of January. So no wasn't waiting for a sale waiting so I could play it in the way it was intended! Sale was just the icing on the cake for me considering I got my "new* graphics card a week or two back
  10. I know just blown my gaming budget this month on Half Life Alyx and Battlezone Gold. However this sale runs until July 9th which of course is another month So many games and so little time. I need to put some hours into Assetto Corsa too before I take the plunge on ACC....
  11. Downloaded. Going in today. Hope its not too scary in there....
  12. Enjoy the freedom! PC gaming is like gaming on C64 on steroids :D. Nice choice of hardware BTW should keep you going for a while! Although always had a PC kicking around I played mainly on consoles until late last year. GamePass arrived on the PC so I started gravitating back to my PC again. Anyhow it's great. Keen prices and lots of mods too for your favourite games. Things to put on there of course are Steam. Epic give free games every week so worth putting their client on. Origin by EA looks to be worth investigating - £20 per year for the basic package - lots of content on there and Indeed lots of older things to go through too. Of course GamePass is worth a look as there is plenty of gaming to be had on there too with all MSs exclusive content coming to the PC too as of a year or so ago. Also allows gaming with Xbox gamers on certain titles (usually MS ones). Oh and it's £3.99 a month so great value. Oh the other element of PC gaming to explore is VR it's adds a whole new dimension to gaming and for me it has been transformative and feels like the next gen of gaming right now. As long as you don't suffer from motion sickness of course. Enjoy there is a world out there to explore!
  13. Hmmm. Seems they are really moving away from the Project CARS formula. So expect GRiD will disappear at some point.
  14. Heads up for those looking to get this currently in the Steam summer sale for £20.99.
  15. Heads up this is currently in the Steam sale @ £35! With an extra £5 off making it £30! Currently downloading...
