Re: Elite: Dangerous [PC, PS4, XBone]

I tried a couple of assassination contracts, succeeded in the first but ended up having to abandon the second after the target ran away. Do you need a wake scanner to follow targets when they jump out of the immediate area? There didn't seem to be a way of otherwise tracking my bounty down. Depends...

Re: Elite: Dangerous [PC, PS4, XBone]

I will help you out mate - take you bounty hunting to buy your basic mining ship then take you out mining for Low Temp Diamonds - it is a floodgate of cash and a fast track to buying and kitting out ships without months of grind.

Are you around this weekend?

Re: Remaster games that warrant it!

Hell can you imagine how grisly a remake of Soldier of Fortune would be today? The GHOUL engine remade with today's tech would be a true video nasty - sign me up :lol:

Re: Remaster games that warrant it!

I'm surprised anyone is even all that eager for more remasters. I'm generally a bit sick of them, even if I were given a choice of my favourite titles to bring back with a fresh coat of paint I think I'd rather just have something new and interesting. What I was driving at was more why we are seein...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

I have similar neighbour issues. We had a lovely old dear live in the other half of our semi detached house from when we moved in. Sadly she died, and from then the house stood empty for a couple of years. We then had her son turn up, nice fella who was a retiree, who advised that his son who was a ...

Re: Star Wars: Squadrons

Tell you what EA, why not just fuck off, take your bottom-rung, devoid of imagination titles and ram them dry up your metaphorical shitter. wow that came from a dark place, and I am not referring to your bum Sorry bout that. My wish for another X-Wing/TIE Fighter game takes me to that dark place wh...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

Real life David Brents. During lockdown we've had regular insufferable video updates from our board of directors, but none more so than the marketing director who insists on theming each video around a film complete with editing gimmicks to show how terribly funny and creative he is. The latest one...

Re: Remaster games that warrant it!

X-Com just a proper remake being exactly the same with higher detailed sprites and not a dumb down mess. Supreme Commander. Freedom Fighers would be great, don't know why that didn't get a sequel :( Dark Reign. Incubation. Crusader No Remorse. Tom Clancy Rainbow Six again not the watered down versi...

Re: Remaster games that warrant it!

Because most of those games you list wouldn't sell Snowy. ;) On a more serious note remasters are often carried out on games that are either too old to play on modern systems, where you have easy access to the source code or license, or to make a quick buck on games from the previous generation. In...

Remaster games that warrant it!

Just seen a thread about a remaster of Shadowman, a game I wasn't aware had even been originally mastered. Not that my ignorance of a title is in any way relevant (game could be brilliant for all I know) but why are software houses not capitalising on the 'remaster' trend by doing it to titles that ...

Re: Star Wars: Squadrons

My brain briefly reached for hope that this could be a resurrection of the old greats, then I remembered that it is from EA. Anything not guaranteed to sell 100 million units in week 1 would not be countentanced, so of course they will go in for the absolute lowest common demoninator - multiplayer s...

Re: Time for a PC upgrade

Would you recommend water cooling, Ian? It's something I always liked the sound of in terms of efficiency and reducing noise, but it seemed like a huge pain to set up and I was always worried about leakages. I have had no issues Dave, although to be fair that only references a single unit. I was tr...

Re: Elite: Dangerous [PC, PS4, XBone]

Where are you at, progress wise? Are you working your way towards your ideal ship or sat on piles of millions and surrounded by engineered parts?

I ask as if the former, I would be happy to show you how to do deep-core mining and quickly get you rolling in money :)
