Re: Daily forum quiz thread

I don't know much about Red Dwarf, having only seen a few episodes when I was a teenager.

HP Lovecraft I've never read and know nothing about other than he was a complete Edwin.

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

I didn't get a chance to watch it this evening, but I agree that Starmer is usually excellent. From what I've seen tonight is the letter just stating that both side interpret the agreement slightly differently and they've agreed that they disagree? I can't see how that makes the blindest bit of diff...

Re: Currently Playing

Human Revolution was the third in the series, and Mankind Divided was fourth. There is also Deus Ex Revision, which is a fan-made overhaul of the original game to update the graphics, sound, and expand out some of the locations a bit. I've yet to find the time to go back to it, but from what I've se...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

I feel exactly the same. I did love some of the cinematography and the conceit is pretty interesting but the film overall didn't grab me.

Re: Trump

The Republican's on the committee are just insane. I don't see why they think backing Trump is such a good idea; they must know that he is toxic to the party in the medium term, so they're basically just increasing the chances of their own ousting at the next election.

Re: Good Old Games - News and Sales

Given they're part of CD Projekt, I'd be very very surprised if GOG disappeared. It sounds like they're just adapting to meet a changing market, which invariably leads to some upheaval.

Re: The Independent Group

I'm not sure what "Focusing on Brexit" really means any more. Nothing is being done. Everyone's just standing around hoping they don't get blamed for the on-coming catastrophe.

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Not quite, they said they would be willing to reopen negotiations if there was a significant alteration in the UK position (e.g. on Free Movement) but that it was incumbent on the UK Government to clearly articulate their position. And yes, Corbyn can keep calling for elections which will never happ...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

"The other side are rubbish" isn't a position though. He can't negotiate a different deal even if he were in power because the EU have already said the deal is there; take it or leave it. His position is exactly the same as Theresa May in that he says he'll go back to Brussels and get a better deal....

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

It's easy to demand a general election when you know there's no possibility of it happening. Yes, I do want him to stake out a position. Whether that's a second referendum, supporting May's deal, or supporting no-deal at least stand for something. At the moment the Labour party is worse than UKIP fo...

Re: Apex Legends [PC, PS4, XBone] - Respawn's F2P BR

I wasn't sold on the style at first, but I'm quite enjoying it now and it's a refreshingly different game to PUBG.

I'm still just as shit at both though.¬_¬

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

Actually put forward a position on Brexit. Preferably one grounded in reality rather than "we'll get a better deal" which is just nonsense. Just admit that the whole thing has been handled abysmally by the current government and in the current circumstance our best option right now is to revoke arti...

Re: The elephant in the room - Brexit

It's not like they haven't been trying to change things, but ultimately they've had no success at all and Corbyn seemingly refuses to actually get off his arse and do anything. As they said at the press conference, it doesn't change the parliamentary arithmetic regarding Brexit - they're still vehem...

Re: Modern gaming business practices

I've never seen this guy before, but just watching the first few minutes of that video was painful enough. The dipshit doesn't seem to know the difference between revenue and profit.
