The top two comments on that article complain about day one patches, the second one moans that you have to go make your dinner while you wait for the patch to download.

They know they can play the game without the patch, right? I mean there's not a bunch of stupid people out there who see a patch notification pop up and say,'Oh I have to wait for this crap"? Right?

I never read the comments on the Guardian. It's a right TrollFest. Within about 10 minutes someone's blaming everything on New Labour and someone else is posting "Tory Scum" - regardless of the article.

It's presented as a dilemma, but you get almost as much Adam from helping them as you would from harvesting them all.

Fallout 4 is an awesome game with waaay more 'depth' to it than I expected, and actually quite moving in places (for those that take the time to look at the stories in the computer terminals, etc. spread throughout the Commonwealth). Here's a good example of such in a side mission:-

Have not posted in this thread for literally years.

I was an 'early adopter' of all things computer and owned a ZX spectrum as soon as they came out in the 80s, got on the internet when there were only about 5000 in the UK on it (my phone bills were terrifying!).

Anyway games have always been my thing and even at my advancing age I play PC and other computer games regularly, if a little less so than perhaps ten years ago.

The reason for this post is the Nintendo Switch and the biggest game so far available for it. Zelda: The Breath of the Wild.

This is an astonishing game - almost a wonder of civilisation itself - and I'm not exaggerating. A staggering achievement - a living, dynamic breathing world that changes all the time, that offers challenges and scenes of beauty and even awe now and again, along with stories that grab you and pull you in. A technological marvel melded with wonderful imagination and creativity.

I have a very short list of the very best computer/console games ever made. Mario 64 is one. Bioshock Infinite another and Breath of the Wild probably a nose ahead of both.

I very, VERY much want to play this game. But I've been awfully confused about which console to buy. I thought I had to buy a Wii--or the latest iteration of the Wii, whatever that may be--but then I keep seeing this Switch thing... which I don't understand. Well, I guess I understand, in that it's a hybrid system--both a handheld or a home console depending on which you want to play. But, for me, I have ZERO use for a hand-held. So, should I still get the Switch? Or something else?

DOOM4 on my daughter's PS4. She bought if for me. Those face-biters are a lot quicker and harder to hit than they used to be.

BOOOOOM! DOOOOOOOOOOOM!
