    SE4 is a great game, one of the very few that I've stuck with and finished. Can't be bothered with all the running around and shooting I much prefer to take my time and have a few beers. I only upgrade consoles when a new XCOM game comes out so until that happens I'll be sticking with my PS4 and hoping Chimera Squad makes an appearance at some point

    Iíve no desire to upgrade to PS5 at the moment, particularly as Iíd need a new tv to get anything from the improved graphicsÖmy TV isnít even 4K so I suspect upgrading the TV , Iíd be impressed with the PS4 Pro.

    Also waiting to see where Sony go with VR.

    I must admit Iíve struggled to get my head around PC gaming. Bang for buck still favours the consoles IMO.

    Has anyone had any experience upgrading to the new NVidia cards? If so, firstly, how the h*ll did you manage to buy one?

    Current generation graphics cards are harder to get than Sports Rolex models. They are used for mining the Etherium Cryptocurrency, and any cards that do come up for sale are quickly re-sold at twice the price. The situation is supposed to be getting better by the end of the year.

    I’m a gamer of old from the early 80s when my father used to have an arcade and I had many home computers and consoles.

    I’ve reignited my passion of retro gaming over lockdown as I find I have pockets of time to fill now working from home!

    So the only original equipment I kept was my old Atari 2600 and collection of around 100 cartridges which sits in the man cave (garage!)





    And my Vectrex.... in my office




    I rely on a RetroPie set up with 27500 games on it to play the following consoles and computers - a fairly comprehensive library of the game’s available for them

    Adventurevision
    Amiga CD32
    Amiga
    Apple II
    Apple IIgs
    Amstrad CPC

    If this is on PlayStation I finally fixed it for me.

    There are 2 packs in the PlayStation store, I canít remember the exact names but one is a campaign pack and the other a spec ops pack or something.

    They are both about 1.8mb if you install both after it makes you install all of the large gb files the issue should hopefully be fixed.

    Iíve played the campaign at least a dozen times. I used to love silence and stealth. Now I like to go co-op with a mate and just run and gun. Mostly I play survival though. Itís good fun to play co-op with a good team of four.

    I used to play with PC. Itís just too much hassle to get everything working right, not to mention the cost of a proper rig. I switched back to consoles for both ease of use and lower costs.

    That sounds an interesting idea, the Retropie and something I've not heard of before. Are they easily available and to set up?

    Iíve recently built a MiSTer FPGA and got an 8bitdo arcade stick to go with it. I actually prefer the simplistic interface to that of my Retropie. Some of the Neogeo and PC Engine games look absolutely stunning only my OLED CX48 with inky black backgrounds. Happy days 😃

    I was a big fan of the Amiga in the late 80ís and early 90ís and stumbled across this site where you can play all the classics (Alien Breed, Sensible Soccer etc).
    Prepare to loose hours just scrolling though all the games and the sound and music bring back great memories (Magic Pockets, Lotus Turbo II).

    https://gamesnostalgia.com/games/latest

    Enjoy.

    Google DE10 nano. I got mine from here https://www.digikey.co.uk/en/product...tech/de10-nano
    UK supplier of parts https://misterfpga.co.uk/

    See this video for what it does https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfIwDC2F2lc

    Or check out Smoke Monsters YT videos for info on the individual cores.

    The really cool thing is it can also be an Amiga or BBC Micro or an Archimedes or a ZX Spectrum etc etc etc

    many build their own - mine came from an ex games developer in States whoís spent many hours refining his version plus recruited many testers so that the majority of the 27500 games all play well

    theres a bit of an art to getting one but PM me if youíd like details

    Just finished the Lost Legacy on PS4. Really good final chapter in the Uncharted series especially as I wasnít really expecting much from it. Recommended.

    Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy are great games. Easily in my top ten. The story is so good itís almost like an interactive movie, while being a proper game at the same time. A little lacking in the replay value as they are so linear.

    If you like Horror then the evil within game is great.

    I have never died so many horrible grizzly deaths in the first hour of a game.

    I even hid in a locker and the bad guy shoved a chainsaw through the door, it was hilarious and disturbing at the same time.

    I have also been the fan of PlayStation since PS2 but I still can't understand why Blizzard don't want to make WoW available for these consoles *shrug my shoulders* I even bought an account here with item level of 198 and 5000 gold to get ready for rumble but my fav console doesn't have the preference of having WoW :(

    This and itís sequel are on my list!

    Iíve actually just started playing FortniteÖI know, late to the game! But so far have played Battle Royale squadsÖis it just me or is it really easy? Iíve played 7 matches so far and won 3 and came 2nd in two. The only ones I died in I was killed by AI in specific locations (not realising you came across AI enemies)! Still finding it good fun for a blast.

    It has skill based matchmaking so if your account is new, you'll get matched with similarly new people. The more games you play, the better the opponents.
    It gets a lot tougher!

    Currently playing through 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim on PS4 Pro whilst taking a break from Persona 5. I do like my niche games.

    Edit: Just started Policenauts on the Saturn, an early Hideo Kojima (of Metal Gear fame) game. There's an English translation available which makes this playable for us non-Japanese speakers.
