WHAT PLAY YOU!? Version 2.0

Recommended Posts

The Doom Eternal hype has made me download the PS1 version, which will form the basis of today’s isolation entertainment.

Although the PC music is iconic and obviously brilliant, I’d definitely recommend you give the PS1 version a crack if you’ve never experienced it before purely because of the sound design. It’s much, much creepier and scarier because of the absence of the usual music, having a much creepier background score, better monster noises, gun blasts, the lot. Graphically there are a few subtle changes, taking out some of the space-station style settings and replacing them with a sort of gothic style, which also adds to the theme.

2 hours in to Animal Crossing and I'm already suffering from fishing anxiety.

"It's gonna bite this time, this time, its gonna bite, this time, no. This time, though, it'll bite this time, no. This time, shit, I missed it!"

Made worse that you have to get 10 in a row to earn that sweet sweet skrilla.

I paid my fees off yesterday so should have my house ready today and hopefully my sweet new electric scooter should arrive.  It's anxiety busting.

Still plenty to keep me busy in Animal Crossing. I've stuck somebody's house up a cliff, and I have an awful feeling she's going to be a bit lonely when they arrive. At least until our community reaches the point that we can build ramps. In the meantime she's going to have to make do with me shinning up and down my ladder to visit. It's the character based on the old lady that played a shed load of New Leaf, so I'm pretending she'll be isolating. 

@MrDanger I managed to get up to 40 catches in a row, and now I've suddenly gotten really bad at fishing. If I manage 50 I get the next lot of Nook Miles.

Alright hive mind.   I want to buy a Switch, Mario Kart and Zelda.  

Having trouble, understandably, finding somewhere with stock that’s not way too expensive.

They've crept up again price wise i've noticed since Christmas time.

Added to that, even getting a standalone console and getting games individually isn't much of a saving as the 2nd hand market for Switch games is mad; they hold their value something crazy.

Are you isolating or can you get to a big Asda or Tesco or Sainsbury's and slip one in your bread and milk shop? Otherwise maybe try and add one to your online shop. Ebay sellers will still probably chance it but as for specific offers I reckon availability will hamper your chances with warehouses shutting down, supply and demand etc.

There was a cracking offer on Virgin last week where you get the unlimited super fast broadband, the tv package minus sports and movies and a Switch with Animal Crossing for £35 a month.

Anyone played COD: Warzone? I've not played a Call of Duty game since the original Modern Warfare but saw Warzone was free-to-play and thought I'd give it a go.

I'm shit. Every other player just seems faster, has better aim and knows what they're doing whereas I'm running around like a headless chicken getting sniped everytime I pop my head out a door.

The best I've done is come 27th and that was only because I nicked a jeep and sped off everytime there was a bit of trouble. 

Yes mate. You are not alone with thinkingoke that. It's a wee bit skewed in that whilst it is indeed free (which is great) the people who have had the full game since late 2019 carry over all their XP and perks etc.

Whilst it doesn't really affect the initial drop and loots - same basic guns for everyone - it is a big disadvantage when the load out drops come and these guys are pulling out the equivalent of the gun OJ Simpson has in Naked Gun 2 due to them levelling up and unlocking them from thebase game.......sniper rifles with crazy scopes and assault rifles with thermal vision etc etc whilst you are left with the equivalent of a water pistol by comparison 👀

You really need three guys on a team all on the same wave length whobare co-operating and, ideally, all mic'd up communicating via headset.

One really good bit of advice i've had and been using is to put a marker down to land awaaaaaay on the outskirts onto one of the yellow magnifying glass icons and do that contract; it'll make you pick up 3 or 4 boxes in relative close proximity which gets you off on a decent footing with some half decent weapons and (usually) quiet enough to fins your feet and get your bearings without landing immediately into a total cluster fuck and being killed within 30 seconds. You can then gradually plot your way back into the middle circles as the game goes on, slow & steady. Had three wins so far using this method.

I'm not particularly good but always looking for folk to play alongside, used to play a regular 4ball on blackout with a bunch of pals but since it's now teams of three i'm always the last one to come online and they are already away in a game 🙄

Activision ID if added on ps4 / pc is: Clarky666

Played Warzone for the first time last night, was doing well got a few kills, got down to the last 10 and then the server disconnected.

Other then that though I just scavenge what I can on the game and hope my team mates can help me through it, most of the time they die straight away and that leaves it up to me to hide for 30mins and hope I don’t get spotted.

I adore Animal Crossing, it's probably my favourite series of games ever, but the new one's bizarre idea to cut off 2/3 of the island for the first 2 weeks and basically make you play a huge tutorial is baffling. I don't advocate it usually, but after about 3 days I just time travelled past all the guff and now I have a full island and all the basic amenities open, and it was completely worth doing.

I've been playing Destiny. Still trying to fully understand it. Is it normal to see other human players in a single player game?

It's not a single player game, it's more like an MMO but not wholly.

I've seen this criticism but as a complete newbie I don't mind it. I quite like having a quick blast on it after the kids are in bed (don't fucking out of context me) just doing my chores and getting to the next stage of my islands' development. I'm currently waiting on the museum being built.

What's the deal with time travelling? I've heard people chastise the use of it. How does it work? Can you jump ahead to different seasons?Also do the tree's grow back after you chop them down?
