    Thought I was the only Bluemooner who played this!

    Haven't they released HOTAS stick for the XBox One now? If so I'd recommened it - I use a flight stick for my PS4 and PC accounts and it mkes the game so much more immersive.

    I like to play slouched on the couch or lay on the bed so a controller is the way to go for me I think.
    The xbox one HOTAS looks cheap and nasty and doesn't have great reviews either. The Elite controller with the four extra rear paddles and customisation is great for me.

    Yeah, the PS4 one isn't great. Console players are getting short changed on this; I'd happily fork out for a more robust HOTAS.

    Well I took a bit of a hiatus after joining the Distant Worlds 2 expedition, got married halfway through and fell behind the fleet as was too busy to play. Ship was stuck other side of Sag A. and I couldn't be arsed to move it back to the bubble. Finally did it last week and I'm excited about these fleet carriers (less so about the inevitable grind that will be needed to get one). I've noticed some improvements to exploration though, particularly around how points of interest are easier to find. Played for a couple of hours last night visiting crash sites and remembered just how much I love this game, despite its flaws.

    I've been playing Black Desert on PS4. Not too big on the semi anime style of some of the characters but it's a good game.

    My copy of the latest PES arrived today.

    As a dreadful player of PES (and video games in general) the clunky/realistic gameplay doesn’t seem to suit my counter-attacking style. I’ve only played two games thus far though.

    I know Konami are in partnership with United for this year’s edition but it’s strange to see McTominay on the front cover.

    I got bored of origins, but much loved odyssey. The setting helped but mainly because I've more interest in Greek mythology and history
