Finally! A post!
Not that I really have much to discuss, I cut some grass and spent a lot of time gaming. I managed to get through the first instalment of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake in about 30 hours. What a game it is though, I struggled to see many flaws in it at all, except for the whiny kid in one of the side missions. Although I learnt something, Mako is pronounced ‘Mahko’…I always thought it was ‘Mayko’. Nevermind, it is what it is.
I’ve also spent a whole lot of time playing Gran Turismo sport. For some reason I never really got into the Gran Turismo games, I’ve always been more of a Forza guy…I still am I guess but Gran Turismo is growing on me significantly. Having seen the preview for the next Gran Turismo game I think Microsoft and the next Forza Motorsport game are going to have to pull something impressive from their sleeve to keep up.
So in terms of the next gen consoles, I think it’s going to be the PS5 that I get before the Xbox Series X. Also the fact I’ve not long had the Series 2 Elite Controller, which you can bet won’t work on the next Xbox. The Elite 2 is a great controller by the way.
I also had a chance to spend a wee bit of time with the Playstation VR stuff. It’s quite good fun, not £200 worth of fun, but fun none the less. Playing Gran Turismo 5 was a laugh, especially in a go-kart. Playing Dirt Rally wasn’t as much fun, especially if you’re crap at it… then all it does is make you feel rather nauseous with all the roll-over spinny stuff going on. But the best game I played on it by far was the Astro Bot game, I kid you not, it gets so immersive! Having to look all around you, stand up to see over walls and stuff. I’m sure I looked like a proper knob playing it but sod it, it was a laugh.
Other than that I’ve just been plugging away on Modern Warfare, so if you see me on it, say hi.
Oh, I almost forgot, I invested in a new headset. I’ve got the Kraken Tournament Edition now and it’s a step up from my old Turtle Beach headset, which was rather uncomfortable to say the least. I actually wanted the Kraken Kitty Ears one haha, with the light up ears, it looked amazing! Unfortunately it was only for the PC and connected by USB which rendered it useless for the Xbox and not fantastic for the PS4. So in the end I settled for the TE and the additional kitty ears! Haha, such a geek!
Anyway, if you see me online on Forza or Gran Turismo, say hello, follow me or whatever. You’re looking for FozziiBear.
