Re: Celebs are still dropping off....

I'm in no way a fan of Caroline Flack (not that I knew much about her) but we have a ridiculous relationship with celebrity in the modern era. She had a domestic and did some stupid stuff. The CPS have to do their job and investigate, they have to follow the law. Suddenly, Caroline Flack is demonise...

Re: Celebs are still dropping off....

What a fucking shame. This is not something I usually say as I look at the age of someone and consider whether their life has been cut short. 77 is a good innings but it's denied us someone who's wit would have only got better if not for dementia. I'm going to link to this hear in case anyone missed...

Re: Phoenix Point - new tactical strategy from original XCOM devs

Well, I've put a fair bit of time into this and I've had to park it. The mid game is horribly broken. If you play well, crush the Pandorans in the early game, the way that evolve badly starts to stack against you. They get HP boosts and Armour Boosts until they become horrific bullet sponges. The wa...

Alternatively, they may view as being set for life and now able to pick and choose roles going forwards I guess.

I would imagine they are less burnt out on the franchise and more sick of the pond scum that clamors over Star Wars in the name of fandom and criticism.
Very much so. Toxic doesn't even begin to describe it.

Re: Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker - the last film in the saga

They could just stop making them because they're shit?

Joking aside - as long as they keep taking huge sums of money, they'll keep making movies in some form or other.

Re: Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker - the last film in the saga

All the Stars Wars faithful that I know love it, one was even reduced to tears.

Myself, I'll not be bothering with the cinema - I was underwhelmed enough by The Force Awakens that I didn't bother with The Last Jedi at the flicks and I'm glad as that was a turgid shite.

Re: The Elephant in the Room - Brexit

It doesn't matter that they don't know why they don't like him. You have to raise up a candidate that can win over the public, as Tony Blair did - who was a very very slick politician. You're right of course, there's no point in throwing the same relentlessly smeared leader up against the media and...

Re: The Room 102 thread - for things you love or just having a bloody good praise!

Leaving the heating on for three days with nobody there would be bonkers. Last time I left the heating off for a week the house got down to 18 degrees - that was in the the tail end of September. September tends to be a tad warmer than December. I was away then for a few days too and the house temp...

I vote with Stormbringer on this one - I prefer warm to cold. Letting your house get down to 4.5c is bonkers. Leaving the heating on for three days with nobody there would be bonkers.
