Re: Funny moments on Preys world

I remember many years ago cracking a really good joke about Wrathbone when he thought a visiting Mormon fancied him, but I can't remember what the joke was. But I was very proud of it.

Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

I'm still on Win7 too. I never want to upgrade, but I know it's going to have to happen one day. :(

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

Also, if you're a fan of men's tennis, Amazon Prime now show the whole tour. I don't really have the spare time these days to follow tennis live - which I used to do weekly - but if I did, I'd probably go for Prime to get tennis and all the other benefits.

I'm sure you were all in your beds at a sensible hour after partaking in a moderate and responsible amount of shandy.
Pretty much, yeah. Apart from the shandy - I didn't drink anything. :lol:

Happy new year everyone.

Re: Fallout 76

Why does everything have to be so tribal, DJ? I mean who cares if he leans a bit to the left or the right? What's it got to do with the content of his videos?

This seems to seep into everything these days & I just find it all so tiresome.

Re: Fallout 76

Also, how right-wing?

Because if you slightly lean to the left or right you're pretty much moderate regardless, and it would have absolutely no relevance to videogame commentary either way.

Re: Epic Games launch their Steam competitor

I remember back when people were saying big publishers would be mad to sell exclusively on their own launchers instead of Steam, since they would lose all the customer base. Which of course turned out to be a load of twaddle - for the vast majority who want to play a game, they'll play it, even if i...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

I just find forum political debate always ends up being an unyielding, highly charged, diametrically opposed style of argument in general, and for a close-knit tiny forum I feel that potentially can be an issue. But, whatever. I gave up debating politics on forums years ago; it always ends up as an ...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

There are others here that don't pitch in on this discussion mainly because of the "stigma" associated with this decision and the reactions it produces. I will join them and if I'm honest I think that this fine forum would be better off without this thread. Final word. It's true. I do wonder about ...

Re: Let's Play... XCOM 2 (War of the Chosen)!

Glad to see I'm onboard now.

When I did my XCOM Apocalypse (massively underrated by the way) Let's Play years ago, I vaguely seem to remember 'Sly Boots' was mainly just there to carry the motion scanner until he died. Hopefully I can be more useful here.

I'm really struggling now with the cringe, more than ever. I just want to make it to the interviews episode to see them eviscerated by Claude.

I've got someone in the training booth to get up to speed, but does anyone else fancy taking on that mantle once they're out? Maturin? Wrathbone?
Sorry, didn't see this. Really snowed under lately.

Sure, sign me up if there's an extra space going. :)
