Re: \m/ Metal \m/

You definitely posted about it elsewhere. I kind of only vaguely listened to Periphery's older work in the past and it didn't grip me so much, this new album is very good though. Crush is my favourite track on the album because of how unique it sounds, not many artists get the whole heavy electronic...

Re: Fallout 76

In my opinion, if a game is only any fun with friends then that's a sign that other aspects of the game don't hold up to standards. It's not always true either, I co-oped the first Borderlands from start to finish and was bored for almost every minute of it.

Just Wednesday for me this week I'm afraid.

Re: Game of Thrones S8

None of the Targaryen's are portrayed as being fireproof in any of the source material as far as I can remember. The Summerhall incident pretty much clarifies that fire immunity isn't a natural trait of their bloodline. It happens to Dany on the one time where she lights the pyre with Drogo and the ...

Re: Game of Thrones S8

Overall much better than episode 1 than I think, there's a fine balance between decent moments and just meme fan service writing. I really dislike how Arya is being portrayed, or possibly just how Maisie Williams is playing her. The complete lack of previews for the actual battle is slightly disconc...

Re: Wanking now requires a Govt pass

I'd have to agree that social media probably does more damage to people's mental health in the long run than pornography.

Re: Game of Thrones S8

I care so little about the deluge of prequels and spin offs that have been rumoured. The series dipped in quality so much by the time it was a season or two ahead of the books, I don't have much faith in any studio being able to make a good adaptation of the limited material in the compendium books....

Re: Game of Thrones S8

It does seem like a very short season given how much material there could potentially be with the white walkers. 7 seasons of building up hype to polish them off in a couple of episodes and then have the finale climax down in King's Landing against Cersei? I do hope not. There is so much they could ...

Re: General Film News

I disagree that it was necessary to entirely dump the expanded universe to make the new movies. Marvel have done a decent enough job of producing movies from many decades worth of material that came before from the comics. I don't really know an enormous amount about it outside of various video game...

Re: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

It would be great if it were like the Jedi Knight series. Nothing has ever quite lived up to them in the franchise since.

Re: General Film News

I recall reading a while ago that they were going to repurpose some of the leftover footage that she shot for Ep8.

Curious as to how the story is going to pan out given that little laugh at the end of the trailer and the title.

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Cooper's Bill has been passed into UK law tonight. It is now legally binding for the Government to apply for an A.50 extension to avoid a No Deal.

She was doing that anyway, but whatever. It shows the substantial backing in the House for not crashing out.

We already had this debate, but interesting that this game has prompted it within the wider community.
