I'm proud to say that I've never played a The Sim game. However, free is free...

Re: Daily forum quiz thread

Oh em gee. I thought I was onto a winner yesterday. 10 out of 10 in 42 seconds. That's pretty unassailable right?

Nope. You guys are demons!

Oh and what the hell was number 7 today? That didn't make any sense, was there even a question in it?

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Snow Piercer I watched this on a recommendation from my girlfriend's daughter...I now have to judge anything she ever recommends again.. It's recently just turned up on Netflix. I can kind of see what they were aiming for (not read the comic behind it) but the writing just sucked. In fact the plot ...

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

I only really started watching it after seeing The Good place. I liked the humour in that and hoped B99 was the same. Liking it so far :)

Re: U Boat

Reading the reviews:
After 10 hours my biggest frustration with the actual gameplay is that there is too much needless busywork with the crew management
clearly this is a very different game, more management, less tactical
My first Impressions were, kind of a better version of Shelter

Re: VR!

Has anyone else had to buy a USB card for their Rift? Having the vive I haven't had to do this but have read about people buying PCIe USB cards. Let's see if we can track down what they get. Well, it seems pricey but apparently this has independent channels for each USB port: https://www.amazon.co....

Re: VR!

You'll have V1.

I am tempted by the knuckles but nothing so far uses them and the wands are good enough for now... saves 260 squid.

Still waiting for some proper user feedback re the resolution.
Index is 1440x1600
Pimax 5K+ is 2560x1440
My Vive is 1080×1200 so either is an upgrade.

Re: VR!

Yup, you can use the vive wands and basestations. I'm looking at this closely. I';ll wait for some reviews as I also want a Pimax as that has a higher resolution but Valve mention some weird wizardry that may compensate for it.

No, the fact was widely publicised beforehand.
It was more than at least 2 people in here mentioned they thought it should be longer/2 episodes.

I really thought Santa Clarita was going to fall into the annoyng cycle of 'oh no, they're going to get caught, then shenanigans ensue' but they managed to keep out of that (just) Probably the excellent banter between the married couple have a normal conversation in extraordinary situations helps ra...

Re: Game of Thrones S8 (Here be spoilers)

Did everyone miss that the episode was also an hour and a half long (so basically a double episode). I even downloaded it twice to see if it was the encoding it was that bad. Tried it on my 4k TV (which is my second monitor) and my ultrawide monitor. Awful. I actually got bored abot half way through...

Re: Daily forum quiz thread

The questions are taken from other quizzes :)

They sometimes assume you know what that other quiz is about which means the question is a bit vague so you have to read the title from where it came from to give you a clue.

They're the badly written ones.
