Re: The 'Look What the Postman Brought Me' Thread - Technology Edition

Had these for a little while now, so figured it's time for a mini-review: The entire Google Pixel phone ecosystem; Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel Watch, Pixel Buds Pro I hate changing phones. I have so little interest in camera upgrades or screen resolution or what silicone my phone is running on, so I end up ...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Actually the more I think about it the less I like it. Ex Machina is still his only decent film. You clearly forgot to mention Dredd when pressing keys right there. ? I did forget he was attached to that yes, it was ok ;) Sunshine was ok too I guess but it’s been a long time since I watched that. A...

Re: How's this look - shopping for new desktop gaming PC

I looked at self build for my last PC (Christmas last year) but due to the price and availability of GPU's at the time it just wasn't feasible. Things might well have changed now though. Building them isn't that complicated, the biggest issue was making sure the cables were tidy!

Re: The Absolute State Of It - It's The UK Politics Thread!

This is just so so wrong.That graph is the wrong way up. I'm 50 next year and it's true what said about becoming more conservative as you get older but this isn't anything to do with being conservative, it's blatantly inhumane. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-63012345 Looking at the middle of...

Mine's accepted it as a bank holiday which we all get on top of holiday allowance. I might burn some car tyres to show my respect.

She hasn't gone but I'm a bit worried about Her Maj atm.
Doctors in attendance, family members head Balmoral... :(
Yeah, looks like her number is up. Nothing to be upset about, a very long, dutiful, comfortable life.

It's another thing we can pin on the tories in my opinion.

Re: Why Can't I find any enjoyment in Cyberpunk 2077?

I wouldn’t claim Cyberpunk is one of the greatest games ever made, but I don’t think Deus Ex is anymore either. It’s one of the most important games ever, certainly, but the actual experience of playing it these days is not as great as it used to feel. The story is good but wearily dated now, where...

Re: General Gaming News

The terrain / cover mechanics are potentially game-changing, it depends on how extensively they're used. I think Homeworld 2 had some very basic terrain mechanics (nebulae or other gas clouds I think that obscured your probes) and they were certainly a point of interest, but they weren't used frequ...

Re: General Gaming News

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixrNy6f0WZg I had entirely forgotten that Homeworld 3 was in development, but I'm quite excited having seen that. Homeworld has I think one of the most memorable aural and visual styles which seems to be entirely intact in the new one, and now there's proper space te...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Alita: Battle Angel This is certainly an... interesting looking film. I know this is a manga / anime adaptation, and it's not a series I'm familiar with, but mixing one CGI character with anime-sized eyes with humans played by real actors was such a strange choice. I don't *dislike* Alita's aesthet...

Re: Currently Playing

Outriders

A vaguely interesting story that was dragged out too long with enjoyable thumpy mechanics. Suffers from ridiculous bullet sponge bads and after doing my first exhibition last night I think the endgame is just perma grind, whihc is a shame.

Still, it was on Gamepass so can't really grumble.
