    PlayStation VR

    Is there an easy way to see what VR games you already have without going on the Playstation? I know I've got Rez, but I've no idea what else might be VR capable already. I daren't try turn my PS4 on in case it doesn't work for long, I've got the PSVR coming tomorrow and I want to give the machine as much of a chance as possible before it inevitably conks out again.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    It's what amuses me when people go on about what a seamlessly coherent world it is, how impressively it all hangs together. It is an absolute wonder when it works, but my god I've got sieves with fewer holes. At least you can laugh merrily and go along with it, accepting things for what they are rather than what they're pretending to be, usually with an inadvertent mass trail of bodies in your wake when all you wanted to do was quietly hunt for a squirrel.

    Watched a hanging in Valentine earlier, made sure to not intervene as I couldn't be arsed with the consequences. Did some amusing heckling. After all was done and people started wandering off, I walked up to look at the hanging corpse from below the gallows then turned around to walk off. As I did so, Arthur's lumbering turning circle meant I brushed the hanging legs of the dead man which obviously meant all hell broke loose, I immediately became wanted, and all the lawmen started shooting at me. Fuck's sake, I was only passing time in the hope someone would turn up at the Five Finger Fillet table.

    Beat Saber

    What's the track list? Got a PSVR coming tomorrow and this looks ace, but might be limited by the tracks available on PS4 maybe?

    Fishing. Is there any point to this whatsoever? I waited an utter age to get a fishing rod (I didn't realise it was story related), but since I got one I've only done it the once which was to get a legendary fish last night which took absolutely bloody ages to reel in. Problem for general fishing is that the bait is specific to a subset of fish but you've no idea what sort of fish are in the lake or river in front of you, so how do you know which bait to use? And is it worth the effort anyway? I've already got more food from hunting than I'll ever need for the rest of the game most likely. Ideally I'd scrap all thought of the right bait and just fish away, but can you only use the various lures for Legendaries?
  6. What's so bad about those in comparison?

    You can do whatever you want. Arguably you're best off playing through to the end of Chapter 2 before doing much else as you don't really unlock everything you can do til you've done most of the stuff in that chapter anyway.

    I was wondering about the perfects, even for the stuff Pearson needs is it a case of sell to anyone anywhere and they count, or do they have to be specifically given to camp in those cases? Every time I end up with a horseful I end up dying so I've not got round to working it out.

    You need to sell it in order to make use of it, and you can only sell it to a trapper. It's not overly clear on that front, I was wondering why, despite having it, I wasn't able to buy the thing that needed it. Or is it the fence you sell to, because that's where the trinkets come from? Whatever, you can't mess it up. Sell it when you can, as that's the only way to be able to benefit from it. Oh, an don't worry if you lose it because legendaries get magically transported to the trapper or whoever anyway, so you can still reap the reward. You just don't get the cash for it in those cases (almost all of them).

    PlayStation VR

    I'm hovering close to getting PSVR, I'd have bought that Currys deal with the moves last night if it was actually in stock anywhere in the country. Also, I need a working PS4. But in the meantime, I may as well buy some games I can't play seeing as there's a sale on and can I go wrong with these? Superhot VR, seems like the perfect fit but I hated the non-VR version, I think I just wasn't feeling how it controlled and dumped it pretty quickly. Maybe it seemed like I just felt a bit detached and cold with it, but then I'd guess with VR that's exactly what's being added to the mix? Is it still playable if you can't get Moves or does that take away that immersion again too much? Batman Arkham VR. I've read it's short, but you're Batman. Again, if I can't get Moves is it playable? Astro Bot, obviously. Most of the deals come with it as a pack in but I don't do discs. Plus lets say to do get a PSVR and do manage to get my PS4 working for long enough for something to boot, I'm fairly certain I've knackered the drive leads in the PS4 during the multiple times I've had it open, those connectors are a bit fragile. Robinson: The Journey. I understand this might look amazing but isn't much, but given it's almost always the most stupidly high priced thing I've ever seen would it be worth a tenner regardless? Statik I'd never heard of until someone mentioned it above but it's in the sale and looks interesting. Is it just you standing there with your hands in a box working out puzzles with a sort of Portal/Stanley Parable narrative behind it? That'd be fine, if it doesn't get frustratingly difficult and obtuse.

    Microsoft Rewards

    Any explanation? Be worth getting onto support, although I think for Rewards you've only got an email option. I've had accounts unsuspended before, so it's doable.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Well yeah, that was the point. Looking at the last 20 PS4 and Xbox One games I've bought my total outlay has been under £40 so I'm not really worried about not having any resale value on what was an average spend of £2 per game. If you're considering the cost of a game include the potential value at which you can sell it, then it's pretty much the same as rental in that your ownership is going to be transient. Also, PS+ games are rentals, Xbox One GwG games are rentals (in that access to both is reliant on a continued subscription) but you happily hoover those up when you can, right? Gamepass isn't necessarily my cup of tea, but I think it's pretty good regardless. It wouldn't be hard to imagine MS merging Gold and Gamepass as one all-encompassing service at some point either, it's surely the sort of thing they're ultimately aiming for along with discless consoles.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Yeah, the prices are daft but only to begin with, it's not often long before you can pick up games for something more than reasonable, or wait a bit longer to pick it up for an absolute pittance. The whole pricing model is a mess to be honest, I suspect they'd sell a lot more, or at worst make no less profit, if prices were cheaper to start with and fluctuated less over their lifetime. One of the worst things to happen to gaming has been the ridiculous sales, and moreso the prevalence of them. If you're happy to wait just a few months you can guarantee at least one thing you want to play will have dropped to some too-low-to-ignore price. I've never put a single physical disc in my Xbox One or PS4, and I doubt I ever will.

    Resale value is meaningless when you can get games cheap enough in the first place for it to be an irrelevance, and if you can't be arsed to wait for those prices or make an alternative effort to reduce them there's always Game Pass. And, just like in PC gaming, you don't particularly have to keep upgrading to keep playing more often than once every several years either.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Was in the West last night. Mainly to try find the legendary Elk or Moose or whatever that one is. I didn't, but in the meantime I snagged a perfect Elk hide then a somewhat unlikely perfect Bear hide. I was also fairly loaded on the horse with a bunch of other nice flat perfects, and so wondered how to get those and both of these big hides somewhere useful given out there is the arse end of nowhere and walking is out. Rob a horse off the path, maybe? Aha, some sort of farmhouse place on the map not too far off maybe there'll be a horse in there. Informs me it's a gang hideout as I near. Looks fairly big so I'll just drop this hide and start firing that will go well I'm sure. YOUUUUU FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKIIIIINNNNNGGGG IIIIDIIIOTTTT I soon didn't have to worry about the conundrum of carting two big perfect hides about. Or about any of my other perfect hides either. To add insult to injury, when I did raze the place to the ground by going at it more carefully the second time I found nothing whatsoever of particular note there. And there never was a horse, either. Nor did I find that legendary either as I wandered back Strawberry way to try do the bounty there. Ffs.
