Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

Yeah, it's getting plaudits from across the board, haven't got round to starting it yet, but shortly hopefully!

Re: Star Wars: Outlaws

On the other hand, have just watched Angry Joe's vid on it, and apparently you can sign up for a month of Ubisoft's service ($18, not sure what in £), play the game and then cancel it at the end of that month... supposedly quite an easy process. If it reviews reasonably well I could well shell out f...

Re: Star Wars: Outlaws

Special edition apparently set to go for over £100 ($130, not sure of the conversion on that). Yeah, they can fuck right off.

At that level I'm expecting a regular edition to go for the much-vaunted new AAA £70 pricepoint, and there's not a chance in hell I'm ever paying that for a game.

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

The Expanse is easily one of my all-time favourite sci-fi shows, so well done.

I've also been enjoying Foundation. Both coincidentally starring Jared Harris :lol:

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

Haha well that's somewhat different to the potted review a mate of mine sent via WhatsApp: I started watching the latest series by the people who made GoT. It’s called 3 body problem . The first episode was intriguing. The second was confusing. I have just turned off half way through 3rd episode be...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

3 Body Problem I've seen next to no one talking about this (apart from it's banned in China). Made by the two guys behind Game of Thrones series based on a Chinese sci-fi novel. It's very much in the style of a Netflix series in that it's actually pretty good but will no doubt get cancelled shortly...

Re: Currently Playing

Ha, yeah, had the same thing (minus the installation, I clocked beforehand that it needed the Blizzard account). I think I even have Battlenet after playing Hearthstone for a while years back, but I just object to having to sign into a second account in order to play a game I'm not that fussed about...

Re: Loss less v 320Kbps v 128Kbps. Take the test

I guessed one 'right', but for the rest pretty consistently picked the 320Kbps options. I have some really cheap speakers though as I had to replace my nice old Creative ones at a time when money was tight, supposedly they were temporary but I've had them a couple of years at this point :lol: They'r...

Re: The Random Gaming Videos Thread

Yikes, the reviews I’ve read gave no mention of microtransactions whatsoever. Looking at metacritic, people aren’t happy. Really not sure about picking this one up after FF7, not least because I didn’t get on with the first Dragon’s Dogma at all. Yep, the big issue with DD2 is that they implemented...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

I just love how well put-together the first one is, it's been 2 or 3 years since I last saw it. It really feels like a bunch of New York university drop-outs who strike it big, the way it's filmed feels authentic. It has a really gritty, grimy aesthetic. Plus I love the dry sense of humour that run...
