Anyone watch the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay reveal yesterday? It's 48 minutes long, but this looks like it could be a brilliant game

Nintendo Switch requires Subscription from Wednesday with exception of free to play games such as Fortnite.

£3 a month, £7 for 3 months or £17 for a year. 
You get a sh*t load of classic Nintendo titles to download for free for signing up. Super Mario Bros 1, 2 and 3 and other SNES games is in the archive from Wednesday. 
Worth the £1.50 a month for a yearly sub imo.

Was reading about this game during the week - c. 1,600 people have been working on it for the last seven years! Crazy.

Not a good working environment either going by some of the articles recently.

I played the first mission myself when it went live last night, had to stop myself for playing longer. A friend of mine is a couple of hours in and says it’s brilliant

Lads, a bit of advice if any of you can help..

Young lad has a PS4 and has the heart set on a wireless keyboard and mouse. I didnt even think you could use these with a console like this but sure you learn something new everyday. Anyway, any advice on brand and is it actually worthwhile? Had a quick look earlier in Hardly Normals when passing by and they were over €100 for a poxy keyboard.

Can you not just use any normal wireless keyboard? They connect with via wireless USB so i don't think you need a specific type. Open to correction though.

He'll be looking for a mechanical one as the response time is better. I would assume wired is better than wireless but in fairness i didn't even realise that you would use them on the ps4.
 
Careful though it's a slippery slope from this to the being a PC gamer and spending €€€€s on a gaming set up. Cry

Yeah I did a small bit of reading up and its all about 8 button response and no ghosting. Ordered one with his seal of approval on Amazon. Its more in the €€  as opposed to the €€€€ bracket but from reviews a decent starter option. If it gets to the €€€€ stage, hes on his own..

Just make him aware some games don't allow you to use s keyboard and mouse online and will ban you if caught. Rainbow 6 is an example. 

Anyone played rdr2? Haven't got the time myself but would be interested in buying.
