Re: VR!

I've actually heard some disappointing things about the Index. The screen quality is good, but apparently the god rays aren't a whole lot better than that first generation of headsets. It's also supposedly unpleasant to wear for long periods because it doesn't breathe as well as other headsets. The ...

Re: The return of the D&D campaign: This time it's potatoes

Yes, I can do tonight, hopefully my night's printing will be done by 8. I'm not at work tomorrow so I can partake in the mid session whiskey too!

Re: The F1 thread

No real surprise, but Gasly has been demoted back to Toro Rosso. Perhaps more surprisingly is that Red Bull are swapping him with rookie Albon instead of the more experienced Kvyat. https://www.racefans.net/2019/08/12/red-bull-promotes-albon-to-team-alongside-verstappen/ While I don't doubt that Alb...

Re: Aaand, In Other News...

As astonishingly stupid as I think doing such a thing so soon after a well-publicised mass shooting is, I can't help but think this story demonstrates the ridiculous situation that American gun-culture creates. He was held at gunpoint by an off-duty fireman, another citizen legally carrying their ow...

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

A week or two behind, but I too have started The Boys , and rather enjoyed the first episode. I'd completely forgotten Karl Urban was in it, so that was a nice surprise. There's definitely some space surrounding the Marvel-style superhero genre for more realistic stuff, I just hope they aren't going...

Re: Adventures in 3D design and printing

So something a bit unexpected happened yesterday. I popped into a local gaming shop to see if they had any X-Wing Miniatures game stuff, and got talking to the owner. I mentioned that I'd printed a few X-Wing ships, and he mentioned that he runs D&D games as part of his job and he and his customers ...

Re: The return of the D&D campaign: This time it's potatoes

I feel like we're destined to leave Neverwinter in a session or two in much the same manner Jeff was leaving whichever village we saw him leave burning in his wake :lol: I've sorta felt like that since we got here! Also, we have two casters on our team and there are two openings at the Cloak Tower....

Re: Epic Game Store - Epic's Steam Competitor

I have sympathy as far as nobody should ever receive that sort of abuse, regardless of what they've done, but this is par for the course for the Internet isn't it. I'm in no way suggesting that the Ooblet people asked for this, but it's just depressing how frequently it happens. I do sometimes wonde...

Re: The Outer Worlds - PC, PS4, X1, Switch 2019

Outside XBox's playthrough shows off a fair bit of the humour in the game. That's all very appealing, but frankly it doesn't look like the gameplay is up to snuff, so I can't imagine I'd really enjoy it. It's exactly the same problem I had with New Vegas.

Re: Trump

Well at least he didn't call the white supremacist a "very fine" person this time. For one of the most backward people on the planet, this probably constitutes progress. It's funny isn't it; depression is a mental illness, and I dare say depression is a realistic outcome for people who've had family...

Re: The F1 thread

Yeah, not quite as exciting as the last three races, but frankly on the Hungaboring I'll take what I can get. So yeah, Max's first pole. Obviously this is a track that suits the characteristics of the Red Bull chassis and aero, but given that these aren't exactly flaws on the Mercedes I think coming...
