Re: Hideo Kojima presents Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, a Kojima Productions game by Hideo Kojima [PS4]

I don't know about the US being 'a bit dim' as he certainly seems to be suggesting, I don't really get his games. I am certainly not casting any wider aspersion as I know that many on here love them, but I just don't get him at all. MGS5 was a great game, I loved the whole stealthy open world infilt...

Re: What's the most 'Value For Money' game you've ever played?

Rome Total War 2 Hundreds of hours rolling my armies across Europe killing plebs. Yeah a toss up between Rome 2 and Medieval 2, I have sunk an ungodly amount of time into both. Then again, that would pale compared to the amount of time I played the original Elite for back in the day. That or Paradr...

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 [PS4, XBone] - PC in November

I honestly can't recommend it highly enough (as long as it works on your rig - a mate gets 5-10 minutes before it crashes even after the patch). It is, in my view, the best game I have ever played. I love the setting, the freedom, everything about it just clicks for me. Am on my second playthrough h...

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 [PS4, XBone] - PC in November

Yep, the game reaches a point and says "OK buddy, over to you, I'm here with missions whenever you like". Worth doing the Hosea missions early on to open up the legendary animal hunts and the fence, and the Strauss ones to open up camp upgrades (and buy those leatherworking tools for the cook) and y...

Re: The Apprentice 2019

I watched that and thought "So an F1 car goes from 0-100 in around 2.4 seconds. What would shaving almost a second off that do to a body, and how the hell would anyone be able to build such a thing?" Then I sat back and wanted to punch Ryan Mark's face in for the rest of the episode. Such a punchabl...

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 [PS4, XBone] - PC in November

It isn't a huge part of the game, but it is done by context-sensitive buttons used to punch, block and grab (and once grabbed to throw, choke or beat). Works well enough - you have to time blocks and then counter to make openings, you can't just whale away or the opponent will just cover up then wal...

Well it looks...amazing. Loving my replay already.

Maybe the bottled water was too expensive?

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 [PS4, XBone] - PC in November

No that did nothing, I picked that up last night to no avail.

Anyhow, I can now play the game I paid for so fingers crossed from here in!

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2 [PS4, XBone] - PC in November

Fixed it, no thanks to Rockstar. Re-installing did nothing and tried all the other remedies posted online bar flashing my BIOS, all to no avail. Then late last night saw a post suggesting upgrading Win10 to version 1903. Checked and mine was not updated, so ran it overnight (took ages and need my be...

Will give re-installation a spin but not expecting much. You are right about their launcher!
