    Audio can be tricky. I find there's a real variance of how people perceive sound due to a number of different factors such as the individuals sound preferences, hearing quality, room size/shape, etc.

    Ultimately only you need to like your set-up but I'd definitely recommend getting a demo if you can, so that you get a sense of the sound delivery of the equipment at least. It's very possible that something someone tells you is great you deem only "good" once you have it set-up, depending on what you like.

    About 8 years ago I bought a Sony AV Receiver and two Wharfedale Diamond 9s. The whole idea was to start with a stereo setup, then add in a subwoofer for 2.1 and slowly build it up.

    I never did.

    Well my Series X was cleared by customs with a delivery in Germany between 11 and 3 last night after speaking to UPS but now it’s stuck for clearance again. They’ve emailed to get it cleared but I’ve no confidence with the shower of shit. I’m fucking pissed off, the request a call feature thru Microsoft doesn’t work so I can’t speak to anyone.

    @oldskooldeano Dunno about that, it would’ve been if it was being delivered today but it seems it’s stuck in UPS Groundhog Day.

    I haven't played PSO since the Dreamcast. Has it changed much?

    My experience with 2 is that it's much the same in structure, but flashier and more responsive. The Dreamcast original had clunky timing based attacks, where 2 is much more fluid.

    I'm still downloading New Genesis, but gameplay looks similar. From previews though, it looks as if it's a adopted a more standard MMO structure of having a beginning area and expanding from there, rather than just choosing a fast travel location from a lobby.

    Might be one of those E3 announcements, like "and it will be available tomorrow!"

    Definitely interested in seeing how it runs on the Series S. On my computer, getting 60fps was out of the question.

    Maybe i'm in the minority, but i played FS a couple of times on PC and thought yeah this is nice, and that was it.

    Probably took about 10x longer to download vs amount of time played.

    Everything is average after you become a DIRECTOR.

    I hope (though remain doubtful) that they can get my PC Yoke/Throttle/Pedals supported and working on XSX. If so then I'm going to be very happy. Though I may need to Ikeahack the coffee table.

    And my Valve Index so I can fly planes in VR!

    Nobody on here discussing the Xbox showcase from the weekend? Was everybody suitably happy/furious?

    Personally I thought it was pretty good. Wished we could have seen a bit more gameplay from upcoming first-party titles (ones out next year or later I mean) but quite a few new announcements, improved Halo, and just so much stuff on Game Pass. I think that was my big takeaway, TBH; how good Game Pass looks right now.

    If people haven't watched Filght Sim or Forza 5 trailers in 4K yet you seriously need to.

    To be fair to THF… I was in the similar boat. I didn’t get past the tutorial though as it was just a bit ok… ‘I am in the air, what do I do now’ and the answer was look at the pretties so I turned it off.

    It has been pretty quiet. Overall I wasn't that impressed with the presentation, although to be honest, I'm not sure what would have made me happy. The whole thing was light on actual gameplay and although the constant screaming from the audience gets a little ridiculous at times, without it it all felt a bit flat. The games I care most about (Fable/Elder Scrolls and a few others) are so far out that it's unsuprising that they didn't get a mention.

    I thought they might have had a "coming soon" section that was more than just a graphic with some release dates on it and maybe shown at least some gameplay. Scorn for example is slated for release in a few months but other than the cinematic a year or so ago we've heard nothing about it.


    Hopefully they'll cover some of my gripes with the show on Thursday.

    Scorn is giving me some really cool Prey 2006 vibes. Absolutely no idea what it'll be like though.

    Also the Geiger-ish artwork reminds me of that old adventure game he helped design in the 90s... Darkside? Darkworld?

    Ah, Dark Seed, that was it.

    Back 4 blood is free and that's all I cared about as it was going to be my first game purchase in 10 months!! Perfect. So my first purchase will be bf2042. Amazing that I've been able to not buy a single game since I bought the X in December and yet I can't even get through the games I have installed.
