Re: The F1 thread

Similar to Red Bull complaining about the Mercedes dual steering system last race - it had already been cleared by FIA and the complaint was thrown out by the stewards immediately. I can't remember now if they officially cleared Racing Point completely or if it was just based on certain parts in tes...

Re: The F1 thread

Yeah he's taken full responsibility for it at least, which Vettel didn't really do last year when he caused them both to go out - but it was just as silly and needless either way. They seem to have a nasty habit of finding eachother on the track; there have been other cases of front spoilers clippin...

Re: The F1 thread

Yep, I didn't see any straightening of Hamilton's steering wheel to veer into Albon (unlike other similar incidents in the past when the inside driver deliberately altered his line to squeeze them out). I'm not sure what drivers on the inside are expected to do in these situations now. Slam on the b...

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

After years of using clippers every 10 days to bring my beard back down to a thick stubble, I decided recently to buy a normal electric shaver. Just a £50 Phillips one. I use that every 3 days or so now. So much easier and less mucking about - only takes a few seconds to empty the shavings under a t...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077 [PC, PS4, XBone] - out September 17 2020

I didn't particularly love Witcher 2, although I did complete it. Witcher 3 I feel sort of the same, bounced off it initially, but I've clicked with it a lot more this time round and I aim to finish it finally - I still have issues with it, but the sense of place in the world they've created is so s...

Re: The Covid-19 Thread

Looking at the photos of those beaches that are covered in litter, I don't know what's happened to this country sometimes. :( I remember vividly in the 80's on family holidays in the UK when we left beaches in Cornwall in the evening (which had been packed in the afternoon) and they were nice and cl...

Re: Steam News & Updates

I picked up the Blood & Wine DLC for Witcher 3 for £6.

I thought I might as well do it now while I've got the main game installed and I'm currently playing through it. Otherwise it would just get added to the Bought But Never Gets Played backlog.

Oooooh. Indeed. That's given me something to think about.

Re: Shawn Layden "AAA model not sustainable"

People want to play these stupidly huge worlds than complain they don't have enough hours to play them and few people complete ("beat") them I mean wtf It is arguing for a 20 hour directors cut of The Godfather and complaining the film is too long and than wanting Coppola to make The Godfather II 3...

Re: Shawn Layden "AAA model not sustainable"

I always feel hesitant to give much of an opinion on these things, since I'm one of those who refuses to pay full RRP for modern games regardless of their length. They're too expensive all round for me. I just wait and play it for half-price or less. A lot less in some cases. Or get a cheap key (got...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

Night club culture can be very different depending on what country you're in I think. I'm not good in crowded places but I was in Italy for a few days once with the company I worked for, and their night clubs were all really nice, with lots of quiet(ish) lounge areas. At the very least there seemed ...

Re: Baldur's Gate 3: developed by Larian Studios

I think it comes down to the fact many people can be uncomfortable watching or playing as someone who doesn't represent their sexuality or race, which, for me anyway, begs the question of those people: how do you think those others have felt all this time? I think a lot of gamers just like viewing ...

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

Coming towards the end of season 3 of Star Trek: TNG. Enjoying it immensely. Although a part of me misses the more fun, slightly kitsch vibe from many of the S1 & early S2 episodes, I really love some of the character-driven episodes that start appearing more regularly. The only character I feel in ...

Re: George Floyd - US in meltdown

Vasquez is played by a Jewish lady ;) I wonder what they say for Short Circuit :-k Isn't it Short Circuit 2 which has the double combo breaker of a white actor doing both blackface and a Pakistani accent at the same time? I can't think of anything in Aliens though. There's some inappropriate banter...
