    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018. No question.

    Sitting down in an office chair, I wouldn't recommend playing this reclined on a sofa - so much of the game is being able to look around.

    They also announced Horizon Zero Dawn at that E3, no? That seemed to turn out quite well too.

    The way this game coaxes and teases the fun out of a new bit of technology but never lets anything outstay its welcome is very Nintendo-like.

    Agreed. It's giving me the same feeling of wonder as Galaxy, doubt it'll quite match it in terms of sheer quality but I'm much preferring it to Odyssey so far.

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    Yes but they still need to encode the additional remote footage which incurs a minimum 3 frame penalty. There doesn't seem a way round that.

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    That strikes me as very unusual, regardless - network latency isn't really the issue - fibre pings are generally under 10ms to a nearby server which is more than acceptable for gaming. My understanding is the main issue lies with the latency inherent in encoding video which is fixed at 3 frames (100ms at 30fps). This is far from ideal for most shooters and racing games.

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    120ms is 3 frames and a bit of overhead at 30fps - pretty much the same latency as every other streaming service limited by the 3 frame preread required by MPEG compression. I was hoping MS claims that there was something revolutionary in their new streaming stuff held up but this seems pretty standard.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Yeah, I'm not generally one for DLC either but Bloodborne's is absolutely amazing. Even better, somehow, than the main game. @rafaqat can you not just reinstall it all from disc and play that way?

    Ainsley Maitland-Niles just has to score to top that list. He could well have been Richard Thomas Horsington's MP.

    Downloading Civ VI to my 7plus no problem.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - None More Black

    Can someone sort out the title please. If it wasn't Sloth then it was presumably a mod or possibly VN1X who seems intoxicated with the endless possibilities of creating ugliness out of unicode.

    FIFA 19

    I got last year's Fifa on Switch - it was pretty shit in comparison to the proper version.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Watched it all over the weekend. It's like someone took 12 Monkeys, Eternal Sunshine and a dash of 2001, blended it into a bit of an incoherent mess then garnished with some Wes Anderson lite sensibilities. Curiously engaging at times but ultimately empty.

    Some insight.
