Yesterday on Twitter I commented that Dreadnaught on PC looked really good, despite the fact that I don't normally play multiplayer games and I said that it was a shame it wasn't on PS4. The Dreadnaught team immediately responded that it actually is coming to PS4 and I should apply to the closed beta. Within half an hour I had the code.

So it's downloading now, I'll let you know how it plays. If any of you are interested, it looks awesome and it might be fun, you should sign up too.

Never heard of it. Signed up, obvs, so we can inevitably never meet up in it, whatever it is.

Never heard of it. :(

Additional PLAY:

Thumper - which is now on Switch too. I double-dipped. It's very lovely, but hard and dirty. Just like me.

Well I've played a couple of training missions and I'm pretty impressed. Despite the fact that it is basically bot deathwatch it was still fun.

I've had my eye on it for a while because it's made by Yager and I loved the first trailer.

Said trailer:

And here's a five minute trailer which gives you some idea how it plays:

Ah, yeah, I remember that now! Still no key - do I need to complain on the Twitters?

Couldn't hurt to chase it up on Twitter. @playdreadnought

But saying that, I don't think they could have have connected my sign up too our Twitter conversation, unless I was the only person who signed up that hour.

There are people online. Owen is currently in a team of six trying not to die.

Doom down, I finally accepted the fact that I'll probably never get VR for the PS4, and that Resi 7 is probably a great game without it anyway, so that's dowloading as I speak, was thinking about getting Outlast 2 because I thought the prequel was legitmately terrifying in places but if I did I'd probably never play Resi (another FPV horror) and that'd be silly.

Now if only I could convince my brother that waiting till you have VR to play Resi 7 in a 'once in a lifetime experience' is going to lead to him never playing it and/or regretting buying VR.

Play - A torx safety screwdriver, and some compressed air. It's time to dismantle my PS4 and hopefully stop it sounding like a jet engine is having an orgasm.

I assume I'm just going to find lots of dust clogging the fan. Anyone else ever tried this?

My PS4 has sounded like that since I bought it.

Admittedly, it only sounds like that some of the time, but it's still annoying.

shitty Kinect games

I bought a cheap XBone Kinect so I can Skype my sister who's gone to Oz but this means finding space for it by the telly & so getting rid of the 360

As such I'm finding myself giving the god awful games I bought for the kids (and they were rubbish at) a go

Crashed Ice - it's basically extreme wanking

Freefall Racers - looks like a fish, moves like a fish, steers like a cow (except you can substitute fish for cow)

Next up is Star Wars; send help!

Scene 1. Int, day.  A funeral parlour.

A family dressed all in black are talking to a funeral director.  A woman dabs away a tear before speaking.

                             Woman
     We can't just bury that.  It doesn't seem right.

                             Funeral Director
      I'm so sorry, madam.  I understand how you feel, but it's the only part of his body that was recovered.

                             Woman
       I know, but...  He stipulated an open casket in his will, and people are going to walk up to pay their respects and see...  that.  What will people think?

                             Male family member
       That he died the way he lived?

                             Woman
       Shut up Geoff.

                             Funeral Director
       Well, if it's any consolation, it just looks like a flashlight when it's in the coffin.  People won't necessarily realise which part of Mart is wedged inside there.

                             Woman
       That's part of the problem though.  People will be confused, they'll ask questions, and we'll end up having to explain what happened over and over again.

                             Funeral Director
       Hmm, yes that is a problem.  Leave it to me, I think I can see the solution.

Scene 2.  Int, day.  A church.

                           Woman
        I'm not sure this makes things any better, really.

A mourner walks up to the casket, looks puzzled, then reads the text below a large photo of Mart next to the casket, nods knowingly, and pays their respects before returning to their seat.

                              Geoff
         I'm telling you, it's what he would have wanted.

We pull back to see the text on the photo of Mart.  It reads, "Yes, we know it looks like a flashlight, but his dick is wedged in there and it's the only bit that we could find.  In fact it flew back on it's own and hit the instructer in the face.  And yes, we know there's a bit of bungee cord still tied onto the other end.  Don't ask."

Arkham Knight - Whoa, is this the pinnacle if what a superhero game should be? It looks fantastic (the way his cape gets drenched in the rain...) and plays superbly in about 3 different styles...as divisive one of those may be *cough*.

It's everything past games were building up to and a bit more, it's a Batman simulator, as past games they nailed the look and feel of pretty much everything. Doesn't this make Asassin's Creed utterly obsolete? It does pretty much everything Syndicate did but better, stealth is better, combat is way better, he's had a zipline before Syndicate and he can use it to fucking glide over buildings. There's a slight Ubisoftification going on here...yet even that is better imo, Riddler stuff can feel iritating but it's way more engaging than getting chests, sidequests with kidknapping/killing Templars was cool but here the people you usually hunt are members of Batman's fantastic rogue gallery. Last night I took on Two Face by hunting down bank robbers inside several banks, in the predator mode. Then I was shredding up Gotham City on the ground level chasing Firefly on my Batmobile.

Speaking of which, this is the thing I hear getting most complaints....and I don't know why, it's a BEAST, I really did shred up Gotham as it smashes through a lot of solid objects out there. I'm yet to feel like it's forced down my throat, saying that seems a bit odd because Batman always uses it in the comics surely? Also, it turns into a Tank and that is light as hell to move but also packs a nice wallop.

Enjoying this.

The problem most people have with the Batmobile seems to be the forced stealth sections later on.

I never found them hugely irritating, although the tank stealth/shootout bits do feel out of character for the rest of the game, and they're certainly the least Batman.
