Re: Video Games +

I'm pretty sure the link between sports, spectators, violence and death is well documented, and other hazardous sports and pastimes end with injury and disablement. Furthermore obsession with anything can lead to unhealthy behaviour and this isn't unique to video games. I have no problem with resear...

Re: Video Games +

Gaming disorder. A new ailment in the WHO's international classification of diseases. See, you people are sick. Sick, I say :) I put something in the Things That Made You Happy thread about a report on this. Seems okay that the people and the global media can obsess about football etc, whilst video...

Re: Things Which Made You Happy Today

There was a feature on tonight's 10pm BBC News about video game addiction, etc, blah blah blah and how some people even now make a living from playing games. With no irony they had a snippet about snooker player Neil Robertson and his problems with video game addiction, followed later by sports feat...

Re: Kingdom Come : Deliverance.

Wow, I saw that horseracing trophy only has 6% of people getting it, guess the actual race is quite tough. I've been clearing up some of the Ancient Map & Treasure Maps, boy they are tough to find sometimes, might be nice if increased scouting gave you a more focused search area (ended up looking on...

Re: Darkest Dungeon

Just bought this on the Switch (currently on offer at 25% off, so it was around £13).

Likely to play it in handheld mode (when Mrs S is watching TV or playing KCD) and went through a few areas and seems pretty good so far.

Re: Cyberpunk 2077.

I want Cyberpunk Planescape Torment. A game about talking, not shootin I'm trying to think of what Witcher III is. There is a lot of talking but the combat in it is really bad. They should lean more into the talky stuff that they seem to be pretty good at. Wow, you really do need to play Wasteland ...

Yes, that's what worries me.

Albeit if you watch say the trailers for Kingdom Come Deliverance they too focused on the combat, whilst in reality I've only killed around 25 people (mostly bandits and Cuman raiders) in 50+ hrs of gameplay.

Re: The Nintendo Switch Thread

That looks quite cool, until you scale it to the size of the joycons and its actually pretty small, and you'd have to know the other person quite well to go 2 player.

Re: Cyberpunk 2077.

This looks great. However William Gibson is shitting on it on Twitter. That's really weird to me cause for some reason I swore that guy died ages ago. He wrote Neuromancer I think, big sci-fi writer guy. "Widely credited with pioneering the science fiction subgenre known as cyberpunk" Then again th...

Re: Fallout 4 |OT| F*ck off Preston (SPOILER WARNING)

I'm guessing the programming wise, items the are unique to the DLC only exist in the DLC coding, and if you delete the DLC then any link to those items is broken, hence they no longer exist/are deleted too (otherwise the vanilla game would crash when it looks for DLC coding that's no longer there). ...

Re: Fallout 4 |OT| F*ck off Preston (SPOILER WARNING)

So we're the DLC saves deleted too when you removed the DLC, or are your saves fine but you've lost all the DLC specific items?

Re: Resident Evil 2

For me, some of the hook of those early RE games was the peril that combat was clunky, ammo was limited, the knife was pathetic, and in some areas avoidance was key. Now I enjoyed the change of emphasis that RE4 brought, but if RE2 goes down that route too (with greater emphasis on shooting) then it...

Fifa 18 Switch - Loading Error

Fifa 18 (Switch) Been playing this on & off for a few weeks, but after playing fine yesterday, then today it keeps just generating an error message whenever I try to proceed from team selection to match, no matter what mode.

Re: Resident Evil 2

I loved the original but hate this constant stream of remakes & remasters that has plagued this generation of consoles.

I do wonder if the OTS view can switch to first person view to support PSVR?

Re: Fallout 76.

I was hoping that there'd be a player/pawn system like they had in Dragons Dogma, where you 'borrowed' other players characters for use in your party or picked up pawn bots, but seems unlikely.
