    I saw a video on youtube telling you to stick something tiny to your tv right over the crosshair. Then when you get the bow out you will have the exact center of the screen so you know where the arrow will go. I'm ashamed to say I tried it. Me and my 2mm blue tack smashed the archery quests. How the hell do you lock pick?! I probably play my PS4 for an hour most nights (before coronavirus) and I remember spending two entire sessions feckin around with virtual padlocks. If the missus found out, she'd leave me. I'd rather admit to watching Babestation!

    My major gripe with Kingdom Come is the lock picking. Worst attempt at lock picking in a game. I reckon I could learn to lock pick for real quicker. I can't remember how I approached side quests. I'm not much one for side questing. I always think people should fetch it themselves. I don't know why RPG games thought there's a secret courier in all of us. At least Death Stranding didn't try to disguise it! I do love the combat though. You certainly don't feel overpowered, do you!?

    Yeah, just the very mention of side quests or random encounters is off putting now because they're done so badly. Just tacked on to give filler.

    I love it. It's my secret game though because I think it's really geeky. I think most RPG games are geeky aren't they. But I think it might be my favourite genre. Kingdom Come was terrible on release. Its had so many patches! I really hope it gets more sequels and they produce more medieval RPG's set in real conflicts

    I tried it but couldn't get into it. I played Oblivion loads when they came out. I prefer games without lots of magic etc. There looks like some cool mods on PC for Skyrim though if your a PC player.
  7. A point behind Bayern Munich. Imagine if we snatch the title. Be great to see the lads parading the trophy past the Assembly Rooms
  8. In your Wolfsburg slums. In your Wolfsburg slums! You drive a Volkswagen and eat your bratwurst! You all voted Hitler, said we could do worse In your Wolfsburg slums. In your Wolfsburg slums! You hid from Covid like you hid in the war. We defended the beaches while you ran from shore! In your Wolfsburg slums. In your Wolfsburg slums! UTY

    RDR2 would have made much more sense as a sequel rather than prequel imo. We already saw the days of the wild west dying and our character struggling to change his life. We saw him die. We basically played RDR2 before. The prologue had great atmosphere and for hours the game is so nice to look at and listen to. You can't deny it's initially impressive? Just gets to a point you can guess the next mission. Horse ride, plan it out, plan goes well, plan goes wrong, shootout against impossible odds and go home. Could have really pressed on with Jack Marston and explored him being an angry badass. After all the GTA games never suffered from having villains in the lead role. Think I like RDR2 more than you do but I didn't think it was fair that it got critical acclaim while Days Gone got a bit of a slating. One hides behind customisation and a beautiful world but they're the same game. Same issues with both. I was excited to hear the rumour Rockstar were doing a medieval game but turns out to be baalocks I think. They're doing a GTA. As fun as they are I think they need to start coming up with new stuff. GTA San Andreas had more features than GTA IV. And IV had more than V. They did set the bar for open world games. Think they'll be toppled soon. Possibly by Cyberpunk? Gonna go give Witcher 3 another couple of hours.

    Wicked game that I've not finished. The biggest problem with open world games is that random encounters are tedious as feck and the story pacing is off. But in the worlds of Days Gone and Horizon the random events are written into the story. The side quests are woven in. And the world is hostile so the open world is always interesting. Think a sequel is planned?

    Agree about Micah. He wasn't seductive enough to believe Dutch would be taken in by him. You know, I didn't really like Arthur much either. His mid life crisis was a bit of a cliche and when you kill 20 people per mission it's hard to get on board with his identity crisis. I've managed to avoid TLOU2 spoilers. I quickly clicked well away from anything TLOU since reading spoilers are out there. Whatever the big deal is I hope it's not just done for shock factor and actually makes sense? It's plot related? The first one is my favourite game ever so they better no ruin it!

    What an odd purchase if you don't like basketball! I did it years ago with Madden NFL or whatever it was called. Had loads of fun but don't watch any American sports. I think EA stay away from excluding casual gamers. A lot of their games get criticised by their target audience (football games by football fans for example) because they always have a pick up and play arcade feel to them.

    I think the problem with Geralt is he's overstretched. Book, comic, game, tv show... he's been so busy slotting into different stories that he's a character to suit every situation. I had hoped after The Witcher 2 that they would start the story of a fresh new Witcher seeing as Geralt should be worshipped as a God by the entire continent who must all know him by now. See I think my problem with RDRII might be the setting. I like medieval and I like post apocalyptic. I'm intrigued by cyberpunk and steampunk settings. But the Wild West? It's not a time or place I've ever obsessed over. My biggest complaint is the missions and story. The game looks beautiful, sounds beautiful etc. Every animation is spot on. The customisation is great. But I have struggled to keep playing it because I know every mission with be a shooting alley and I find the story so thin that it borders on a simulation game. Not that it's a bad game at all. It's definitely up there. Just don't think it gives you a reason to get to the end unlike say The Last Of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, Tomb Raider, Mass Effect etc. A lot of games where the story is constantly driving you. I did have the ending ruined for me though so maybe that don't help! I know what happens I just don't know how.

    I always have a little debate whenever an Ubisoft game comes out. They're like WatchDogs and Ghost Recon. They do some stuff better than everyone else but never learn from mistakes when making the next game and so every game has some horrible feature. I see the latest ones have strayed pretty far from the formula?

    Anyone's gaming increased lately? I've been on the PS4 everyday which is unusual for me. Picked up The Witcher 3 cheap. Was a fan of the franchise but never had the time to sink into it. A couple of hours in and it's good but I'm yet to get the hype. Red Dead Redemption 2. Come to the conclusion it's not that good. I thought it was great when I played it on release but after sinking some hours in I've fell out with it a bit. It's beautiful but it's a horse riding simulator with pretty ordinary shooting. Everything Days Gone got criticised for is present in RDRII. Yet RDRII got critical acclaim. I don't even think the story is really engaging. Good game but it's not as iconic as I thought after getting stuck into it at last. Tempted to go nostalgic with Final Fantasy VII Remake. Not played those games since FFX Not long til The Last Of Us 2, Cyberpunk and a Mafia 1 remake.
  17. Very exciting player. Loved watching him. One of my favourite goals was under Burley and included Tommy Smith. I can't remember if he scored it or set it up. But I remember the build up between players. Amazing goal. And I didn't realise one of those goals in the clip above was Smith. In my head that was Lupoli that holds off a defender, rounds the keeper and sells a dummy or two. That was my only memory of Lupoli anorl!! Smith might have been even better than I remember then!! Wish we had him here for longer at his best.
  18. How can the EFL decide on promotion unless the PL decides what it's doing? Might be a stupid question as I avoid coronavirus related stories where possible. Too much clickbait poo
  19. Does anyone know how many we're taking?
  20. Appreciate the desire to stop Villa scoring a seventh Ramage missed his moment that year, innit?
  21. Thanks for allowing us to start next season in the Championship. Very kind Birmingham, Derby OR Sheff Wednesday on minus points. Put it to a vote? Draw straws? Several clubs will consider legal action if they're relegated. So if they aren't relegated then they're perfectly happy with how this has all gone. Crystal clear then
  22. Big game like that you'd understand him keeping something to hurt Villa on the bench but keeping it all stashed away on a gamble we get to the hour mark still in the game shows you he either had great faith in his players such as Bennett or that he completely screwed up in a big game. If that was Chelsea in a crunch match then he'd be mocked on every back page.
  23. I never believed Chelsea would come to get their manager from a play off scraping Derby side. The season had some great moments in an otherwise forgettable season. It wasn't like Mac seasons where it was consistently fun and high quality (with a few big lows). There are a handful of great games in the 50 odd we played that were spectacular but most were just meh. Many were much like the Rowett season. The spectacular games must have been enough for Chelsea to convince themselves which is a bit nuts. Similar to Harry Wilson who the media thought was our superstar but week to week there was lots of poor play we had to endure. I'm guessing Liverpool were more aware of Wilson's average level of performance than Chelsea were of Lampards. I think Chelsea have seen the best of Lampard too. He was a breathe of fresh air but in time I think that will wear off. It's not a club you get time to grow with. I like Mick McCarthy. Seems a sound bloke. Football isn't much fun though and it's that classic argument of what you want from your Saturday afternoons. I'm happy with how it worked out anyway. Quite like Cocu.
  24. And big characters. Tough to manage I bet but they produced the best stuff!
  25. Easily would make my top 5 all time favourites.
