    Online Bargains

    From what I've heard, it is around 8 hours for the 2 play throughs. I quite like a shorter game though, so I'm in.

    It's true. A lot of the older techy guys like to be known as the one person who knows about 'x' or 'y', and it leads to them being a single point of failure. Writing good documentation is bloody difficult though. I recently automated a lot of the oracle patching using ansible, and writing the supporting stuff about how to stage a new patch and maintain the code was almost as hard as implementing it in the first place. In a perfect world, you would have a person attached to every new project who's sole job is to document and handover to the support teams.

    Just thought I'd post an update. I'm approaching a year at the new place (Ordinance Survey), and it looks like it was a good move. My old work (Kingfisher plc, i.e. B&Q, Screwfix) has gone down the shitter a bit, and on top of their share price price plummeting, they have cancelled a lot of the things that were good about working there. The OS has provided me with a lot of training and opportunity to do my own thing, plus in April I will go onto the on call rota, and essentially pocket an extra couple of grand a year for doing very little. It is very chill though, and I think that will eventually bore me, but I am happy at the moment.

    2019 Game Completion Thread

    Yup. It's one of the few metroidvania games that really grabbed me, other than the original symphony of the night. A combination of great visuals, stunning music and sublime gameplay. One day, I may even finish it. ;-)

    PSVR - Is it worth it?

    Has anyone played Beat Saber on PSVR? It looks amazing.

    2019 Game Non Completion Thread

    All good points, but I still bloody love the game. I finished it back in the day on the PS2, and have save on the PS4 that's maybe 20 hours in. It's a chill game that I love going back to occasionally. I also loved Twilight Princess though, so read into that what you will.

    In. The novotel looks to be around the cheapest, unless you've seen something cheaper @Ginja ? https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-3656-novotel-london-excel/index.shtml

    Dead Cells

    Have they improved the framerate on the switch version yet?

    Rogue Legacy

    I have always meant to go back to this, but I suspect that when I buy it, Dead Cells will pretty much do what Rogue Legacy does, but better. Still, it's an awesome game.

    Mine works too!

    Grats bud. Kids are awesome.

    Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

    I've 'yarred' this on the PC to give it a go and it does seem pretty good. I think I want it on the Switch though, so am happy to wait until I see it at a good price on that.
