Re: The H.P. Lovecraft Reading Club

Yeah, we would be reading my insights about now if I had been reading the Shadow over Innsmouth and not the Dunwich Horror...

Re: The gig thread

Ghost tonight and Amon Amarth next Saturday.

Also managed to bag tickets for Lindemann on pre-sale (they went in seconds on the main sale day) at the Kentish Town Forum - will get my almost-Rammstein fix from that one :)

Re: Half-Life: Alyx [VR] - March 2020

If it has a lot of movement in it (which wasn't really shown) it will be a vom-fest for many, myself included. I have Skyrim VR and can't play it for feeling motion-sick. It also looks quite jump-scary which also puts me off, I hate games that make me jump and have avoided them completely in VR (Ari...

Re: Half-Life: Alyx (Had to be VR)

You have a better memory than me :) What I remember most about HL2 was the use of physics. Something we completely take for granted now but iirc HL2 introduced it and showcased it with the puzzles, gravity gun etc. I enjoyed HL2, and have replayed it once or twice, but it was a long time ago and I a...

Re: The Travel Thread

My wife and I love Italy, we have been there many times. Rome and Vatican City are both amazing, but my favourite place I think is Lake Garda. We have stayed there a couple of times, basing ourselves out of Riva Del Garda at the North end of the lake. The lake is massive, and you can get a water-tax...

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

The walking dead This has been real bad for a while now. The whisperers (people who dress in zombie skins to blend in and heard zombies) are an interesting idea that breaks in universe rules. Used to be you had to cover yourself in zombie guts to pass through the horde but now a simple skin mask wi...

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

Tell me who I am on Netflix. Hard to watch, identical twins, one of whom has a motorcycle accident, goes into a coma, and when he wakes all he remembers is who his twin is. Nothing else and nobody else. His twin fills his life in for him, but is holding back something which comes out over the cours...

Re: Hideo Kojima presents Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, a Kojima Productions game by Hideo Kojima [PS4]

I don't know about the US being 'a bit dim' as he certainly seems to be suggesting, I don't really get his games. I am certainly not casting any wider aspersion as I know that many on here love them, but I just don't get him at all. MGS5 was a great game, I loved the whole stealthy open world infilt...

Re: What's the most 'Value For Money' game you've ever played?

Rome Total War 2 Hundreds of hours rolling my armies across Europe killing plebs. Yeah a toss up between Rome 2 and Medieval 2, I have sunk an ungodly amount of time into both. Then again, that would pale compared to the amount of time I played the original Elite for back in the day. That or Paradr...
