My Shield TV controller's safe, then. I mean, you'd imagine it's Android TV compatible as well as with their own streaming box/console?

Actually, I barely use the Shield pad. Am finding a Power A Fusion a lot better.

I'd have said no until I got my current phone, a Moto G6, which had a habit of sliding off every chair arm I'd parked it on before I bought a case. Mirror finish shells look nice, and all that, but practical they ain't.

@phos: Norris has been winning everything in lower formulas, he's also British and very young which doesn't hurt their marketing - Lewis won't be around for ever and there's no other British driver on the grid. That he's not going to cost much is another bonus.

Sainz is the risky choice. ;)

I was pretty high in the One Finger Death Punch leaderboards for years using a Logitech G602, which has a thumb rest.

I had tons of grand ideas when I bought my first Pi, then quickly decided it was going to be an emulator box.

I dunno each time I’m tempted to get Onrush I watch some gameplay footage and feel turned off. When it goes on a steeper sale I’ll take a look but so far I’m ok with waiting.

It's a lot more fun to play than it is to watch - I really wasn't taken by what I saw in videos but had enough people recommending the game to me that I bought it, but only when its price dropped by 40%.

My main problem, apart from the bullshit takedowns your opponents do on you, is that the modes are all too slight and samey. They're a collection of bonus rounds stretched into a full game.

Saw the PS4 version on disc for £30 the other day and bit the bullet - Tesco if anyone's interested, for both consoles, and I saw them in Sainsburys today for £29.99.

Eh, I'm finding it a bit dull and extremely repetitive if I'm honest. The driving feel is weird, like you're constantly driving through glue, and there's nowhere near enough differentiation between the way the different vehicles feel. Game modes are all very samey and the promise of newer and rarer skins isn't enough to keep me interested.

It'll get traded pretty soon.

Dipped back in the other day for the first time since near console launch. It's still a mess (I'm on an S) and when I see how comparatively slick H1Z1 looks and plays on PS4, I dunno what they're playing at. The desert map is now online and I've yet to complete a match in it - lag has made it unplayable each time it comes up in my rotation.

@evilmonkeyslayer: To parrot something I said on the QL comments, if you're after Dark Souls at 60fps with no hassle or bugs then pick up the remaster. Otherwise, I actually think a DSFix'd game rendering at 4k (with no other mods) looks better, but I've not done any side by side comparisons yet.
