  1. I think the external USB will be the way to go if you can't stomach the cost of the SSD. Easier to stomach having 2TB of games on your external and then just swap stuff on the fly. What are the transfer times like on that?
  2. I have a Series S, if that counts. It's impressive they got so much into such a small box, and it looks by far the nicest of the new consoles IMO. It's very responsive... shame there's not many games yet, but I bought it was a bedroom gaming box for using with gamepass, so it'll pay for itself. Downside, the storage space is far too small really. I'll probably buy an expansion card for it which makes it cost as much as the X would have. But I still wouldn't want one of those in the bedroom anyway.
  3. Doom Eternal: The Ancient Gods Part One Mixed bag like the main game. Plus points are that it is much more inventive with the arenas, lots of fun fights in interesting arenas that force you to fight stuff in different ways. The main game didn't do enough of that and it's this kind of thing that they should be doing if they want to make you step out of your comfort zone with fights, rather than be restrictive in terms of only a few weapons being effective. 3 quite long missions with a lot of good fights. Downsides; Marauders are still really boring. And one of the new enemy types is on
  4. If you want some super easy cooking, iirc there's a rainforest south of hyrule field with lots of hearty durian growing - just chuck a bunch of those in a pot for a max heal with like +10 extra hearts added.
  5. I'm listing Destiny 2 (PC) in here because I've done: All 5 story campaigns All raids including one flawless raid All dungeons All exotic quests that are getting vaulted Rinsed the fuck out of it.
  6. I hear the people who worked on the DE of Mafia 1 are all really good looking and talented
  7. Judging by this impressions video today, it seems like it's actually only hitting 51 degrees, which is... not very much, actually. My GPU gets far hotter than that and apparently that's cooler than a PS4 Pro/One X. I think the guy who got "almost burned" apparently pulled the expandable storage SSD out and then touched the metal connector, which is A Bad Idea, because SSDs will get very hot, but the console itself seems fine. I expect PS5 to be much the same.
  8. The amount of power they're packing in both these boxes is gonna make heat inevitable. You basically have "small" form factor PCs at this point with enthusiast level components inside, without the space for cooling that a full size PC would have. Plus modern components just get hotter and hotter as we cram more transistors onto a single chip. Not to mention NVMe drives get hot too (they usually need their own heatsink) so there's also more components generating heat. Heat tolerances are pretty high for most components though, like >90 celcius iirc. As long as you don't block off the ve
  9. I have a feeling that MS will try and pull some gamepass stuff with Zenimax and Obsidian. That is, they'll say to Sony - we're happy to launch and sell these games on your systems after an initial exclusive period, but only if you let us have gamepass on there too. I feel like 2020 Microsoft will want a slice of both pies, to be honest. Agree that consolidating under single owners isn't great for consumers though, I'm also unhappy with the practice of giving a developer money to make a game not launch on a competitor's console a la FF16.
  10. Anyone got a pre-order in for the new generation? I've gone with a Series S - want a console for the bedroom, basically, and with Game Pass it seems ideal. The X feels like a bit too much for me with how long it'll take for MS' first party lineup to really spin up, so I think in a few years I'll grab a PS5 for the living room once there's more than 1-2 exclusives worth shelling out for. For anything really high spec, I'll have my PC.
  11. Here's what I've beaten this year: Shovel Knight: King of Cards (NS) Good stuff although I didn't really enjoy the card minigame that much which knocks a few points off. Platforming wise it's probably the second best of the bunch most of the way through bar some frustrating sections. Also reminds me a bit of Wario Land which is nice. Dragon Quest XI (NS) Quality old school RPG with fun characters and combat, an enourmous amount of content and a slightly lackluster story. God of War (PS4) Never finished this the first time because I played it on hard and apparently nobody a
  12. It's the only one I've started but never finished. Genuinely put me to sleep unless I was in a dungeon.
  13. Frankly I find it more surprising that there are people who managed to not get bored playing Twilight Princess.
  14. I finished it the other day. When it's at its best it's better than the last one but it's a bit inconsistent to say the least. It's quite messy to start but once it settles in it's good. The biggest issue once it gets going is the Marauder enemy type which is possibly the shittest enemy in video game history and ruins every fight it shows up to. Still, I had fun but it was a bit like pulling teeth at times on UV difficulty.
  15. brb starting a gofundme so I can get a vive
