Re: TGA Eville session on Gamepass version?

We're on quite frequently in the evenings, anywhere from 4-8, but not necessarily the same time every day. Best thing to do is jump on Discord.

Re: Twitter, the shitshow that keeps on delivering

I was more commenting on Musk somehow being even more of an arsehole when intoxicated rather than a comment on the intoxicant itself.

Nah, four. It's currently just the three of us.

Re: The Watch

I wonder if it's partially an ego thing. I get the feeling creative types don't want to just reproduce someone else's work, they have to either put their own spin on things or at least create something of their own within the parameters set in another's work.

Re: TGA Eville session on Gamepass version?

Yeah, DRG is great. If it's just the four of us I'd be happy inviting another (we haven't had a Scout in the party yet).

Re: TGA Eville session on Gamepass version?

Depends on how many of us there are. I think Among Us probably works better than Eville with fewer players as you can at least choose smaller maps, and I still think Among Us is the better game so that's my preference. As alternatives I've been wanting to try Overcooked 2 (2-4 players) and Gang Beas...

Re: Twitter, the shitshow that keeps on delivering

Part of me thinks they needed to remove the policy to let the people who were banned for breaching it back. There're a few mentioned in the article, including a "doctor" that claims covid vaccines are either ineffective or dangerous. The other part of me thinks that Musk just sits in his living room...

Re: The Watch

I've actually been reading the Watch series recently, in fact other than a brief foray into the Wizards series I've been reading them one after another, and I'd been considering seeing whether this was worth watching. I don't want to read a full series review for risk of spoilers for the books, but ...

Re: Jhe Jiant Jpegs & Jiffs Jhread

I've largely ignored the trend for AI art (other than chuckling slightly every time someone inserted Shrek into something), but someone posted this on Reddit, and it's apparently entirely AI-generated: DVD Screencaps from the movie Return of the Jedi, 1983 https://i.imgur.com/eUnnTNP.jpg More here. ...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Palm Springs This is a pretty good time loop story that distils the concept down to the most entertaining bits; how the characters deal with their strange reality. It doesn't bother trying to explain anything, it just happens. It's not laugh out loud funny, but Andy Samberg playing basically the sa...

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

Yup. It's not as subtle as it would have been in TNG I don't think, they'd have undoubtedly given it more science-fiction trappings, but frankly it's an issue that I have no objection to being presented so obviously. I think all of the Topa episodes have been very effective, but the first season one...

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

Agreed on all counts. This is exactly what I wanted from this show, getting down in the dirt with lower-level early Rebels and Imperials (while not ignoring the bigger picture), and it's both fairly well written and lavishly produced. It's certainly up there with The Mandalorian in terms of Star War...
