  1. I wouldn't have been surprised if it was both. They live in that amber-hazed section of my brain reserved for the late 70's early 80's.
  2. It's OK. My rep is still intact... Had a PS4 for around 3 years now. Got it on a deal that could not be missed. It gets turned on for about 10 hours per year on average. Bought an Xbox One S about 6 months ago. Just for it's Plex player, which is one of the best, and has native 7.1 audio and 4k. All for less than a dedicated 4k player. And it's an Xbox I still only play games on my PC though
  3. I put around 10 hours into NMS on the PS4 around 18 months ago. It's how i know i cannot play it with a controller. It might have been Carl Sagan as well. But i've only ever heard that quote from Douglas Adams in HGTTG part 1.
  4. Never say never, but i don't think he intended coming back. I have him on Steam so will send him that message.
  5. That's really helpful. Thanks. Also very encouraging to read that flight won't need a dozen fingers. Newtonian is lovely-n-all, but not having it is never going to put me off a game. I have the game now, but need to get Outer Worlds done first. I have 2 weeks off over Christmas. If RDR2 isn't installed by then, NMS will be my sweetheart.
  6. So, with the Rift, it's only really effective when you don't need to hit too many different keys. With Elite Dangerous, the controls are so complex, that even with a controller, you still needed to occasionally hit keys, and the only way to do that was to lift up and look under the rift at your keyboard sometimes several times every minute - depending on the manoeuvre. So annoying after a while, i gave up. I hope control of NMS will be simpler, as Elite is basically a space flight sim.
  7. Up to level 21 and really enjoying it now. It is super easy, but i don't mind that too much. Ultra Hunting rifle is slow to reload, but 1-shots pretty much everything, and my companions make short work of everything else. Only died twice in the whole game. Once was stupidity and the other was too many tough mobs in one encounter. All done with no buffs, no companion abilities used, and not much min-maxxing on armour either. Still happy to continue in "Normal". Just hit Byzantium, which i'm told is the last major planet.
  8. It's an on rails walking with narrative That seriously describes it best. I think i'm on the last, or almost the last baddie in the game. I put it down about 4 months ago and haven't picked it up again since. The games i OK. Very atmospheric, delivering the feel of living in medieval France much as i would imagine it. It lacks population and centres around putting you against set pieces/puzzles to work through. When you run out of other games, this would be a decent distraction for 10-20 hours play. YMWNV
  9. Decided to get Synthesis on PC. The game looks like it'd be up my street, but i can't face playing any game like this with a controller. So i'm giving up on the PS4 version. I look forward to comparing notes. I just need to finish Outer Worlds.
  10. There is more than one way to obtain DRM-free.
  11. Started playing this a few weeks ago. Developed by Obsidian Studios (Fallout 4 etc.) and it plays very much like a Fallout game. The humour is right there, and not too stale, and the play style is very similar to FO4. The biggest difference i would say is that the open world isn't open enough. From that point of view, it's more like the recent Tomb Raider games - a series of medium sized zones, that you play through. This makes it feel quite a lot more on rails than FO4. Still, if you're happy to be led through an interesting plot. then it might be for you. They've tried to do more with companions, but having played Far Cry 5, it's not a touch on how they interact, and the character interplay dialogue, as seen in the likes of DA:I. I will continue though. Playing on Normal right now, and it's very difficult to die.
  12. They're great. Very "Mad Max".
  13. I already hate myself for making this mistake. It's true i'm usually the first to pick up on anyone else doing this. So i take the slight full in the face.
  14. Also, sort of sorry to hear this... You're missus is hot. Does this mean she's on the market? Too soon?
  15. Hah. Great analogy.
