Re: Subs Department Epic Failure

I think this is a problem in so many work environments now. Just so much automation, TOO much IT run aspects of modern industry. Bugs and gremlins everywhere. We can't get through a week at work now without something on the IT side buggering top and putting us back. And if it isn't our work, it's a...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Well, once my pad is charged, I'll be playing The Last Of Us Remastered.

Re: Quake II Fully Ray Traced

This is the first time ever I'd say Quake _looks_ agreeable. It was everything wrong with PC gaming. Raytracing does all kinds of good things to it. Really? At the time, it was the showcase for just how powerful PC hardware was. Even more so when the OpenGL patch was released. I mean, that's like s...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

John Wick 3: a rarity, being a 2nd sequel that is as good, if not better, than the original entry.

Good Omens: first ep was good. I have high hopes for this.

Re: Streets of Rage 2

Streets Of Rage 2 is one of those rare games where everything that makes a particular genre coalesces into a "perfect" entry.

SOR2 has it all. Excellent graphics, outstanding music, crisp controls, and (imho) perfectly tuned gameplay.

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Decided to replace my original PS4 with a Pro model. Ordered today, so should arrive in the next day or 2. Im glad I updated mine, not sure if its because I'm looking for it but does seem better with the PSVR. Forgot to backup all my saves though so everything is gone and have to start again :roll:...

Re: From The Forum: 194

Either Burnout 3 for the "pure" Burnout experience, or Burnout Paradise for sheer, unaldulterated open world racing fun.
