Indie titles deserve their turn in the spotlight too - especially when the games are as cool as this! While neither of these titles is even attempting to deliver anything like AAA production values, we think they're special games - and their very nature means that they can push high-end features - The Falconeer hits 4K60 with ease with the developer working on 120Hz support. Meanwhile The Touryst renders natively at 6K resolution and locks to 60fps, with an optional 4K120 alternative!

Anyone heard or read anything about the likelihood of more stock being made available for launch? I normally preorder as soon as it’s possible but I didn’t this time unfortunately

Fan Fest Trivia Quiz was a massive success!!!

2am starts
Crashed after 2 questions of Round 1.
We're resetting the quiz and moving everyone to Round 2.
We're now moving everyone to Round 4.
Round 4 goes fine.
Game crashes so now cancelled at 3.30am.

Everyone gets 5K Reward points & $10 off Razer Kishi Universal Gaming Controller for Android. Also had a few guests on, hosts did pretty well considering they had to constantly stall.

Phil came on the end & hinted at 1v100 being in development though.

:o :toot: .

1v100 on the 360 was my first experience of online gaming; it was blomin' great but, iirc, only around for a short while. It'd be so good to see it make a triumphant return!

Will we finally get a game that utilises the new avatars? :o

Also, how did they actually do the fanfest trivia, monkeyman? Was it slightly more impressive than the video quizzes you get on facebook where you mark your own answers at the end?

1 Vs 100 was legit one of the most inventive games ever made, albeit with some issues. A properly designed new version would be fantastic.

It was a stream with a chat box next to it. Below that was a QR code which I pointed at with my iphone which opened up a webpage. The quiz questions were on that. You had to answer correctly as quick as possible to get more points. After the round it showed your points, league position & correct answers.

You’d like to think there would be some sort of allocation for launch day so people could go somewhere and buy one, not seen anything said about it though and I can’t see there being loads of spare ones to allocate.

Damn, I thought this was tonight. Oh well, sounds like it wasn’t worth staying up for anyway.

The only thing I'm thinking is it might be worth trying a few of the bigger supermarkets on the day.

They're generally a bit hopeless about all this pre-ordering lark, so might be worth a shout. Best of luck finding one anyhow.
