Re: Borderlands 3

I'm loving Borderlands 3 then. For my first playthrough I'm just playing as Zane, without too much thought put into the skill trees. My second playthrough will probably be as a different character, and I'll then do the additional game modes to level up. I'm doing all the sidequests and just explorin...

Re: GET TO DA CHOPPAH! The 80s actiontastic retro thread

When you see a film so many times, it's hard not to spot all the flaws. And Commando has many glorious ones. :lol: I think I mentioned this once before, even in the first few minutes the film makes no sense. Bennett explained later on that he had to fake his own death and kill the others, so it woul...

Re: Currently Playing

Played through Grim Dawn a few times now - the build customisation and depth of play-styles is great.

Currently waiting for the Ashes of Malmouth expansion to go cheap on a sale so I can pick that up.

Re: GET TO DA CHOPPAH! The 80s actiontastic retro thread

Yep, I really, really like Predator 2. It's nowhere near as sharply directed as P1, but it's a really fun and inventive continuation of the story. I think as the years have gone by, it's gradually gone up more and more in my estimation.

Re: The 'Look What the Postman Brought Me' Thread - Technology Edition

Thanks! I also picked up a CoolerMaster TX3 Evo cooler on sale for 15quid to replace my stock Intel cooler.

The stock cooler was okay for the majority of stuff, but I noticed with GTAV it was really shagging the CPU temps more than I would want.

Re: The 'Look What the Postman Brought Me' Thread - Technology Edition

I decided I fancied playing some new games this year after all, after my main GPU died 6 months ago, so I ordered an Asus AMD RX 580. It was by far the best GPU on my £150(ish) budget and should keep me going for a few years. Nvidia are poor in this price category, and I just can't afford anything e...

Re: Does anyone know where Dave (Prey) is up to?

I forget who on here kept in contact with him semi-regularly. Was it Mantis? I'm sure there was someone else too.

Would be nice to hear how he's doing these days.

Re: Unreal Engine 5

Impressively done, but if there is going to be a new age of photorealistic visuals, I hope they don't lose sight of keeping some character and quirkiness to how a game looks.

I like how different games have their own particular animation style and overall visual vibe.

Re: Currently Playing

Yep, I never had any issues with the few games I got from instantgaming in the past. Although, that was back in the days when they had ridiculously huge discounts on brand new big titles. Same with Cdkeys. Whatever small 'risk' there was, was worth taking with the savings you could make. But that se...

Re: Epic Game Store - Epic's Steam Competitor

I'm assuming it's simply because Epic are throwing stacks of money at them and are eager for more customers - Rockstar won't make a loss by doing this.

Re: The F1 thread

He was always a superb practitioner when leading from the front at Red Bull, but I have very few memories of him showing great racing skills in tough situations - unlike Alonso and (especially) Hamilton. Under pressure, he was far more prone to simple driving errors than those two as well. Still, 4 ...

Re: Mass Effect HD remaster in the works?

ME1 & ME2 are strange in that I always felt ME2 massively improved half the elements of ME1 and made the other half massively worse. I enjoyed them both, but I don't think I ever worked out which of them was the better game! Although, Andromeda actually ended up being my favourite game of the series...

Re: The Covid-19 Thread

I think mortality rates and death totals are rather all over the place at the moment. So many countries are classifying deaths with/from Covid-19 in different ways, or not even including certain areas like care home deaths at all. Plus - and for me this is the main issue I have with the Govt/SAGE re...

Re: The Covid-19 Thread

Hope your family's doing okay Sly.

I now believe my 'winter bug' back in late Feb/early March was Covid-19. I had reduced lung capacity for 7-10 days afterwards which I'd never had from a bug before.
