Typically yes, everyone can. Most servers have automatic welcome messages and some also have automatic farewell messages which show when users enter or leave (but not come online/offline). The gs one doesn't have that, at least not one that's visible to users right now.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

Are Xboxes less reliable than PlayStations? I can't recall having a single issue with my PS1, PS2 and PS3 over an ~18 year time span but in less than a year and a half of having an Xbox One S I've had issues with two controllers and the console itself is playing up a bit.

Controllers have built in obsolescence these days and one controller wont do you an entire generation, the analog sticks are only rated for 400 hours of playtime and if you get a Dualsense act up on you the actuator is soldered to the board so you can't replace it without significant experience and specialised equipment. Even the £150 Xbox Series Pro Controller has a 400 hour lifespan.

The consoles are very reliable though, Xbox One/PS4 use the same AMD Jaguar Chips. Try deleting some bloat and updating the System software. You could also try a factory reset.

I would guess that's a natural and somewhat unavoidable consequence of the increased power and heat. The relatively underpowered consoles Nintendo has been making post-Gamecube have had substantially lower failure rates than those of Sony and MS.

Hades
I'd mention more about it, but there's so much out there already it would be redundant. Supergiant Games storytelling in a rogue-lite hack-n-slash that makes you want to lose sometimes so you can see the story unfold.

HROT
The perfect kind of retro slav jankgame. It's a Quake style FPS that saw how brown Quake was and decided that no, that would not do, and made it Brown. It's technically in early access but what is there was quite fun to play through if you like that sort of thing. That it is written in Pascal is just icing on the cake.

Gladius
I'm a sucker for 40k stuff and while I think this game is brilliant it certainly has its rough edges. It's a hex and turn based strategy game akin to a basic Civ game (it would be classic 4X, but there's no diplomacy because in the grimdark future etc...), if you're not playing PvP you're playing skirmishes against the AI (which can be adjusted from "push over" to "it literally cheats to beat you"). Given it's an adaptation it's really quite faithful to the tabletop game and compared to the usual dreck that gets the 40k license it's an absolute gem. If you can get it on a Steam sale with its DLC it's not too, but it gets really quite pricey if you wanted to get everything outright (I'd make excuses for the developer needing to recoup costs for a niche product, but that's their problem not mine).

Wilmot's Warehouse
I've worked in a fulfillment warehouse for a mid-sized non-Amazon company before, and this is basically a picker-stocker-packer simulator. Do you like shapes? Do you like colours? Do like when things are Neat And Tidy And Exactly Where They Belong? This game will seem like a waste of time, an infuriating nonesense or the best thing ever. You play as a square that gets delivered a pile of squares with symboles on them, you need to drag and push them around a large fairly open area (the warehouse) and sort them in whatever way makes sense to you within a time limit. You have limited vision range, so you need to remember where you stored things. Once the sorting time's expired, people appear that will demand combinations of the things in your warehouse and you have to find and deliver them. I think it'll take only one or two minutes of watching someone play this game to decide if you'll love it or hate it.

It is that good to me. All things battletech related have always been a bit of a mismanaged mess and this is no different. But that has always been in the things surrounding the games never the games themselves.

As for the game. I love it, and I've never had a soft spot for the franchise. The greatest asset to me is the community it self. Most online multiplayer experience are an experience of infighting between foul mouthed teenagers. This there is genuine cooperation and discussion on voice chat. I don't rightfully understand how it has happened but it is quite wonderful. I've made friends via this game.

As for the gameplay primarily fps with tank controls in team deathmatch. But as the set up for that imagine if you played something class based like tf2 but within that you had full equipment management like diablo but it was balance so no equipment was objectively better. I would be lying if I said that wasn't overwhelming to a new player. And if you want to give it a try I would happily recommend starting builds so you don't get completely lost immediately.

24812 Headphones
Just a little question - are there any reasonably priced adapters that can add bluetooth/wireless functionality to headphones? I.e. a setup that would be something like a USB dongle in my PC and a rechargeable receiver you plug the headphone jack from the headphones into. Had a look on ebay, and most of the items are rather vaguely described or don't do as I want.

I could just get a set of wireless headphones or an m-f extender cable, but I quite like the headphones I have, so don't see a need for pointless waste, and would generally benefit from being able to use my headphones while hoovering etc.

Do any of you have experience with the sort of adapter I'm after? If so, any recommendations?

I have a AUKEY Bluetooth 5 Receiver

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00O8GASEA

for the car. That allows me to stream bluetooth content from my phone to my car stereo. It has a battery although I just leave it powered from a USB slot in the car.

I don't think it's particularly heavy but slighty bulky. If your headphones have a headband, then you could perhaps attach it somehow although it would be a bit janky and look mental. Else that could go in the pocket and cable up to the headphones.

Cheers fella. Reviews seem to be fairly good, and the unit looks to be of better quality than most of the shite I saw on ebay. Will definitely be factoring this into purchases in the near future.

Listings for the unit you linked on ebay are all just above the £15 mark, which seems to imply that some cheeky bastards are effectively letting you piggyback off their Prime accounts to get delivery. Last two things I ordered off ebay came in Amazon packaging with a gift note and no invoice. Cheeky cunts.

I had that happen recently, I really felt like I'd been had, even though I was only paying about £1 more than if I'd bothered to check amazon first and order it there myself. I'm obviously turning into a grumpy old man though, because I reported them to eBay, as it's against their rules. I can't imagine anything will come of it but it still felt like mild revenge.

It looks cool as fuck and very handy, but after basic research on component costs it looks like the eBlaztr mobile gaming case costs in excess of £1,000.

£770~ on CPU, Graphics and Monitor;
£300~ guess on motherboard and misc components;

Total product cost at £1,775.

Be it known that i have next to zero experience building computers, much less of the markets.

Thoughts?

I don't entirely understand it. It's not especially small and while an all-in-one PC-monitor set up is quite nice, it's not that amazing. It's an ITX motherboard so it doesn't seem much different to the ITX PC I'm using to send this message right now. Indeed I have the same GPU, SSD (same brand and capacity no less) and RAM, but it cost me quite a bit less than £1,775. However, it is worth noting I bought a lot of this before the prices got shot to the Moon by COVID. Also I don't know how easy to come by ITX pre-builds are either.

24777 Overdosing on nostalgia
I recently found out that archive.com, besides being generally amazing, has exhaustive collections of content. This includes files for pretty much every videogame ever released, up to Wii/PS3 era and some beyond.

https://archive.org/details/no-intro_romsets - This contains complete romsets for every cartridge or floppy based console out there, from Atari 2600 to N64.

https://archive.org/details/@atrac17 - Here's everything CD based from Sega, and some Sony.

Obviously these things are being updated, but the missing content is limited to stuff like 'Flemish Beta release'. If that sounds appealing to you, then we share an illness. There are also curated collections out there (eg Champions collection) if you don't want to sift through all that toss.

I found out that emulation has evolved a bit since my day, and now you have the option of consolidating emulators within a frontend, like Retroarch - https://www.retroarch.com/index.php

There are a bevy of handheld or plugin consoles that can emulate some fairly modern systems. There's also Retropie and stuff like that, so you can basically create your own emulation platforms. It's mental what's gone on since I last looked in.

On the obsessive side, there are numerous groups (ReDump, No Intro, 1G1R, TOSEC) who create their own 'dat' files, which contain all expected files and can be used to verify a checksum to validate the rom file. There's rom management software, like the picture attached - I've recently found that it's easy to create your own dat files using clrmamepro (rom management focused on MAME, the arcade emulator), so I'm now sorting my collections into a few groups so I can host the core ones on an ftp for when my HDD inevitably dies.

Finally, if you duckduckgo (no wonder they aren't taking off, how the fuck do you shorthand that?) 'games over girls' you'll find a slightly disturbing set of photos of women dressed up as game characters and feigning unconsciousness in awkward poses.

WinAmp was a Matryoshka doll of constrained creativity. You highlighted skins, but there were several visualisation plugins which had their own plugin or configuration language (I didn't learn about cartesian v.s. polar coordinates this way, but I first understood how the latter work way back).

I wonder some times if its rose tinted memories (the demo scene is obviously alive and well), but even the ways you get started with modern technology feel like a hand-holding exercise. The step towards "learn to code" is so much easier, but the step towards "actually learn to code" is harder.

I'm >>24712 and from what little I have played of SkVR I found archery to be near impossible. You can't draw the bow properly without smashing the controller into your face. Annoyingly as well the lefty swap option in Bethesda VR games renders it completely unplayable by swapping movement and menu controls so I have to play righty mode which isn't ideal. Either way I'm a pretty good shot with my right hand, now.

Borderlands 2 VR's lefty swap just changes the aiming hand but leaves movement controls where they should be (left analogue stick to move/strafe and right to turn).

Playing on the Playstation as a lefty I found it to be ok. I couldn't really do the archery well until I got the eagle eye perk, and the move controller tracking is a bit gubbed, so you end up with your characters hands down by its knees during key moments of combat.

Blood & Truth was pretty fun too, being that it's like a Guy Ritchie movie with a Paul Verhoeven bodycount.

I really enjoyed the flying and combat of Iron Man VR despite the heinous loading times.

If you told me 5 years ago that there would be consumer VR systems and they'd not be utterly shite, I wouldn't have believed you. I think that the platform has a lot of potential and as more people buy it, more AAA titles may eventually be released.

It barely runs on a decent PC (I rarely get 80FPS); it'd probably be a PowerPoint slideshow on PS4.

Oddly enough, Skyrim VR runs perfectly fine, and it's practically the same game, so I have no idea how they fucked Fallout 4 VR. Also, not including the DLC for... reasons? Thankfully they can be fairly easily added in, but many of them run like (even more like) shit even with unofficial patches.

>Painting the Warboss or various cool Trukks and making conversion is fun and interesting. Painting a squad of 20 boyz is boring and potentially laborious.

Exactly.

Ultimately batch painting is how I do manage to get around it, over the course of a week or two I'll tackle a squad in chunks, just doing one colour a night. Sit down and do all the little pouches brown one day, do all the little gun casings black the next, etc.

I think part of the trouble is just that with Marines, they're clean and chunky enough that you can't get away with cutting corners. It's more obvious on an individual Marine than it would be on a horde of Orks or Tyranids that you can credibly knock out in an afternoon with some washes and drybrushing. Each guy demands a neat, precise finish that sometimes I just haven't the attention span to keep up. I think that's why I prefer the characters, where I can just focus on the one model.

It's funny, I used to hate rimming five guys, but now it's the part I look forward to the most.

I've got to disagree with that a little bit since the majority of the chapters are one solid colour with maybe a contrasting bit of colour on their shoulder pads and knees. Like a lot of the time you can get away with a dark base colour then just drybrush the entire thing a lighter shade before tidying up the wings on the chest.

Admittedly still not as easy as Tyranids where you can get away with 2 colours and just dip them in wood stain. https://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/Dipping_Tyranids

It's going down the rabbit hole a bit, but marines become piss-easy if you learn to airbrush. You can put down the base colour perfectly in seconds and easily do shading and gradient effects.

>Like a lot of the time you can get away with a dark base colour then just drybrush the entire thing a lighter shade before tidying up the wings on the chest.

I agree, but if you want them to look really nice it takes a bit more effort. There's a lot of steps you don't have to do, but once you know it's within your ability and you've done a few squads that way, it's hard to justify putting less effort in with the rest. That's probably just me having some degree of OCD mind you.

I tend to feel like airbrushes are a slippery slope, I've seen lots of painters fall into the trap of starting off with base coats, and before they know it they're doing everything but edge highlights with the fucking thing, and always swear blind it's not a crutch, even though half their army looks like the side of a gypsy fair waltzer.

That said I would really like one for priming and basecoating, but I don't think it's viable to use one in my flat. Is there some kind of extractor hood contraption you can get to make them more viable in small, enclosed rooms?

Anyway here's the latest set I've done, first batch of the new year. I don't make resolutions but if I were to make one it'd be to have this full army playable by... Well, whenever covid is over.

24177 new graphics card
I'm in the market for a new graphics card - I believe that the RTX 2060 family is the one to go for, but would appreciate any advice/experience - there seem to be millions of versions, all with pretty small variations. Pictured is the ASUS one I am thinking of.

Don't want to spend much more than 500 quid.

What would you buy in this price range?

>I guess that's what you get at this price point

Exactly - and it this price point, any wheel is better than using none. I think you have to start getting into the £500++ level before you start to get things that actually feel like a proper car, these are just miles and miles better than using a joystick. I haven't seen a single gearstick anywhere on any simulator that looks or feels like those in a car, so flappy paddles it is.

I didn't go to bed I ordered a "Used - Very Good" T150 from Amazon for £86. It was listed as £120, but at checkout, which I was only looking at to see when the delivery would be, it had a £34 "warehouse discount", which I never knew was a thing because I only use it to watch films really. There was another one left if anyone's interested/their inhibitions are lowered because it's late.

My T150 arrived! The previous owner had managed to half demolish the USB connector in such a way that it was too squished together to fit in a socket, but after some prying it just about squeezes its way in. I really don't know how they did that, I don't think I've ever seen someone do that before. All in all though while it's clear I can't drive and my desk is being shaken apart by the minute, I am enjoying it. I think I'll hold off jumping into a public ACC lobby until I can reliably take T1 at... well anywhere. Also the USB is running through the connector on my Logitech keyboard, because it's the most solid one around and it didn't feel at all good jamming it in and yanking it out of my mobo ports, anyway I just like that chimeric combo of brands and hardware so I thought I'd mention it. The force feedback is also highlighting what a thin-wristed little wimp I am.

Makes Sekiro seem like a leisurely stroll. Most fun I've had in my living room since the missus and I christened the new sofas.

Why does it matter if it's a flavour of the month game? Their twitter is still full of replies and from what I see on Twitch still quite popular, new levels are being released in a couple of weeks too. I'm sure it'll survive.

If anything, it'll be easier to get in a game.

Steam says otherwise: 46,255 players at time of posting, 59,488 peak. And that's only for Steam, of course, I know it's on PS4 and I am assuming you can buy it elsewhere for PC.

I am strangely excited about the upcoming launch of the new Flight Simulator. Already have a very good X-Plane setup, but they seem to have done a right number on the FS scenery this time, albeit an initial 90Gb (!) install.

Anyone else, at all? Gonna need a bigger PC.

I've seen this "it's a sim so we can charge you 'sell a kidney' prices" lots and I was wondering if anyone knows whether it's just a cash grab, they won't sell as many copies as CoD or the MCC so they have to charge more to break even or are there actually additional costs involved with making sims that justify higher prices for the customer? It seems to me that it's often just a case of a captured audience who can't "vote with their feet" because some sims have de facto or near monopolies on their genre.

They're a for-profit company, they're just charging as much as they think they can get away with.

I've got no problem with DLC in principle, but I hate day zero DLC and "premium editions". Salami-slicing a game on release day just feels grubby and exploitative, especially when you're parcelling off some of the most desirable content.
