Apex Legends - a fun 2 weeks, now I'm out
Matt's picture
Mon 18th Feb, 2019 by Matt
2 weeks since launch, and I'm uninstalling Apex Legends from my PC. I've enjoyed it, but it's not for me. Why? Because 2 weeks in, and suddenly the squad chat is getting filled with vile and insults and people taking shit farrrr too seriously - want to take it seriously? Squad up with some other...

Apex Legends Lame Win
Matt's picture
Thu 14th Feb, 2019 by Matt
Played crap tonight. Had some randoms just dropping out, another game where two very good players constantly respawned me until the last enemy squad, before we lost - I don't think I'd shot anyone that game. Then this game in the screenshot above. Now I'm not sure if those two were mic'd up...

Apex Legends

Wed 13th Feb, 2019 by Matt
Battle Royale. The current Big Thing that once upon a time may have grabbed the Pacmen by the balls.  I played a bit of PUBG back in the day. I didn't like it. It's addictive, that "maybe next time I won't suck arse" but it was too serious for me, too buggy (I'm sure it's better these days), and I...

Vive Deluxe Audio Strap

Sat 12th Jan, 2019 by Matt
I've been meaning to pickup a Vive Deluxe Audio Strap for a while. Reviews were pretty good online, only complaint really being about the price. HTC do take the piss with their VR kit prices, but I have a Vive and wanted a better headstrap. Frankly, the one the Vive comes with is poor. Velcro...

This is in no means a post to say, "I'm finally tackling it!", more a fun stat that left me somewhat amused. 2975 continuous hours to complete my Steam library. lol. Roll on next months Humble Monthly

Xmas Haul
Matt's picture
Tue 25th Dec, 2018 by Matt
Xmas time so I picked up a bundle of gaming bits From the top, going clockwise: Smash Bros game guide book. Fortnite DLC code (not for me this one, obviously). Uncharted Collection, remastered on PS4 - loved UC2, never really gave UC3 a fair chance as I got bored quickly. Will try this year....

Modding Switch Joy-Cons
Matt's picture
Wed 19th Dec, 2018 by Matt
As I'm getting a FlipGrip this Xmas (it's here already, but thought I'd save it), I was keen to get a proper D-Pad sorted for the Switch left Joy-Con - I couldn't play Tate arcade games with the analogue stick, or the standard face buttons the Joy-Con offers. There is an official D-Pad Joy-Con...

Spider-Man is my new favourite SuperHero -PS4
Matt's picture
Thu 22nd Nov, 2018 by Matt
I recently borrow the new PS4 Spider-Man game from a mate. I'd heard it was good, but I didn't expect it to be this good. The swinging is magnificient. Point and click, you're swinging around New York in next to no time. Upgrading as you go, you end up pretty fast and have a lot of control - with...

Nintendo Switch - 1 year old
Matt's picture
Sat 3rd Mar, 2018 by Matt
Time flies, I've had the Switch for one year now / since launch - and I've still not had the guys over to play Mario Kart on it. Maybe this year.... My first impressions of the Switch were mixed. Unlike seeminlgy everyone in the world, I wasn't enamoured by Zelda . "Push Forward The Game", as I've...

Sun 7th Jan, 2018 by Matt
We used to be far more interesting than we are now. Look!   With 2018 upon us, yet another year has slipped by without any gaming Session. It has now been 3 years since we all met up, which is a trajedy. In putting together this little Blog, I needed some photos so had to head to the archives to...

UT2004 2017 Xmas game

Mon 1st Jan, 2018 by Matt
Does it count as the Xmas game if I play on New Years Eve just after the New Year kicks in? I'm going with yes. Yes I did manage to get the annual game in. All on my lonesome as has been the case recently. Not next time though. Next time I'll have the PC setup so I can TeamSpeak (or whateverr the...

Shit that freaked me out today

Fri 11th Aug, 2017 by Matt
An aside from talking about games or making games, but kind of related.... Where are my good friends Carl and John these days? We're not playing video games together anymore, we're not having Pacmen sessions anymore. Where are they? Well, Facebook answered. Fucking conjoined accounts and they both...

No updates?? What am I up to?

Wed 9th Aug, 2017 by Matt
The bad news is development has stopped dead. My game isn't dead, far from it, it's just.... well I'm doing some construction at home which will give me, finally, a proper editing suite for my film work, and just as importantly, a mini VR studio space It's been a long time coming, I've been...

Matt's One Week Switch Review
Matt's picture
Sat 11th Mar, 2017 by Matt
I think what that really gets to me about the Switch is the complete lack of support for Bluetooth audio. I never imagined that on an under-powered, over-priced games console, no support for Bluetooth headphones would be the single most negative, but I think it speaks volume for the lack of thought...

Warframe - sorry Will I just got really lucky
Matt's picture
Sat 18th Feb, 2017 by Matt
Last night Will and I were having a few games, running a few missions, nothing exciting or special. An Alert or two. I mentioned I was looking to unlock all the Junctions Terminal things, and I was on Earth, which coincidentally enough is also the location of the Kubrow eggs - I needed one for the...

Warframe - the obligatory 2017 game
Matt's picture
Sun 12th Feb, 2017 by Matt
John pointed out it's a yearly thing, and he is right. We seem to go through this every year.... What is surprising is we played Warframe in 2014. 3 years ago. I didn't realise it was that long ago. 2 years I can, but 3? I guess that was when the PS4 was new, and John, Will and I really took to the...

2017 Console "Upgrading"
Matt's picture
Wed 25th Jan, 2017 by Matt
With my £200 Switch pre-order secure, it was time to sell off the Wii U. I rarely keep consoles once a new generation starts. I admire people who do, but I can't afford to have, effectively, a pile of money sat in a box in the loft doing nothing. I always trade or sell. And when I am feeling...
