    Dirt rally is getting the PSVR treatment, 10 quid I think. Would you risk the cash for another try? I'll send you a 10 quid gift code voucher if you do, mate.

    Yeah, I'll buy it again for psvr. I hope it'll come with a new physical edition so I didn't trade it in for nothing.

    Looks incredible on PC. Supposed to be some "Experience".

    on 24 January 2017

    It should be a good test whether VR really transforms the gameplay. I'm curious to see if it will change my opinion of the gameplay from trade in to must have.

    on 24 January 2017

    I took a chance on the digital version. The wow factor certainly has passed. It is more fun to drive in vr, yet it doesn't fix the (ds4) controls one bit. It's still way too sensitive at high speeds and feels off at low speeds. VR does push it passed the point of 'not gonna bother with it' to giving it another chance.

    As for graphics, it's ugly. The environments are a bit more consistent than DC, or less downgraded, yet there was a lot less to begin with. The car interiors are very basic and low res. Resolution the same as DC with lots of shimmer.

    I rated it 3/5 on psn. It's fun to play when I've had enough of DC VR for a bit, yet it's no contest which is the better racer with a controller.

    On the positive side, depth perception is great. You don't really need the co-driver to judge upcoming turns, following the tree line is enough. (still need him to call out obstacles) It was easier to stay on the road at Pikes peak, no plunging into ravines from misjudged turns.

    Oh I totally forgot to tell you. I went to see Princess Mononoke in theaters on Monday. They had a special screening in honor of its 20th anniversary. It was so cool to see it on the big screen.

    Awesome, I'm jealous. Even though I build my own home theater, it's not the same experience. I never got to see any Ghibli movies in the cinema. I tried to go see the wind rises in theaters but it wasn't playing anywhere near me.

    on 14 January 2017

    I have seen every single Ghibli movie more than once yet the only one I have seen in cinema is The Red Turtle, it was totally worth it though.

    on 16 February 2017

    Oh nice, yeah that one isn't playing anywhere near me either, only at one theater in Toronto doh. I'll have to wait for the blu-ray release. Something to look out for :)

    what is your fave studio ghibli film?

    Princess Mononoke as my avatar suggests.
    I can also rewatch Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, Howls moving castle, Totoro and Ponyo at any time.

    on 11 January 2017

    i broke down watching castle in the sky.... the loneliness of the robot was too much for me... i have yet to see totoro...

    on 11 January 2017

    Don't watch Grave of the fireflies if you can't stomach Castle in the sky!
    Totoro is pretty sad too yet still a very uplifting movie.

    on 11 January 2017

    i did see gaves of the fireflies.... when i was a kid LOL
    it is a pretty hard swallow but i don't think i cried... was just sad... ok i will watch totoro :p

    That projector was so funny. :)

    If you're a serious gamer you play ps4 in IMAX

    Haha. The next Ps4 pro is going to come bundled with an excavator. :P

    SvennoJ out of interest, do you happen to know the name of that final update patch for Driveclub? Was checking the EU store and couldn't find any new additional content for the game. Made me a sad panda.

    Or was it just a software patch because I recently changed from a 500gb drive to a 1TB one in my PS4 and was redownloading all my games, I'm guessing if it was this I would have gotten the most up to date version which includes this patch.

    on 13 November 2016

    Final version is 1.28, it a normal update / patch.

    on 13 November 2016

    Ah cool, I'll just have to open my eyes so for those new races! Thanks mate.

    Jumanji: New film features video game instead of board game

    Mar1217 said: JRPGfan said: I wont watch this... 1) Im too old. 2) they wreck these movies of classics, they re-do too often. (this seems like that) The only hope I have about this one is that it's trying something different than it's predecessor.  They tried with Zathura, it flopped. 58 million box office, 65 million budget. (Jumanji made 262 million box...

    GameStop: Nintendo Switch is Selling Out “Within Hours”; Demand “Incredibly Strong”

    in Nintendo Discussion 1 hour ago

    I was skeptical about using it as a handheld before buying it, but now I love it. I just got back from the car dealership to get my car checked out. I had to 'wait' an hour, that was way too short, still plenty battery left! The guy at the service counter was trying to get one too 'for his kids'. Demand will only get stronger when more are seen outside....

    Gran Turismo Sport's Nurburgring Is PS4's Most Beautiful Thing

    in Sony Discussion 3 hours ago

    Trunkin said: SvennoJ said: DC VR runs at 60, reprojected to 120 (only head movements). I don't know if any titles actually use the 90hz mode. Only Trackmania turbo ups the fps to native 120. Since GT Sports is already 60 fps much less sacrifices need to be made, still some I guess for wider fov and 3D. 120 fps could be possible if that's the only pro enhancement for VR, or perhaps...
