    Can someone explain the Free Kessler and the Dave Lang thing? I find Dave Lang really hard to read sometimes, he looked mightly pissed off but I also think he can "act" quite convincingly.

    Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    As I mentioned in the Dream thread, I went to Animex Game here at Treasure Uni last week and amongst the speakers was Andy Barstable, Principal Coder on SoT. One of the things he confirmed, which I'm sure by now already has, is that they'll be no stats on items. He also showed early proof of concepts made and playable in Unity, not that they were ever going to make it in Unity, but there engine didn't have the networking required for multiplayer and this was a way of getting it up and running. He showed footage of people playing it at Redmond thoroughly enjoying the experience despite it been a flat block world. He also talked about developing the Kraken and the problems of having a synched experience across a network. It was an interesting talk.

    Dreams - Media Molecule

    One of the co-founders of Media Molecule gave a talk demonstrating Dreams at Animex Game last week and it was amazing. Admittedly it's not necessarily something I would buy but what he was doing and how incredibly well it ran, from a technical point of view, with zero slowdown or lag was something to behold. The way he was talking they have a 10 year plan for it (I presume this was part of the talks with higher ups).

    Battletech

    Well that's bummed me out, I paid full price for the standard version.

    Peter Kay's Car Share

    Throughout the series there were a few cutaway shots that had a small visual joke. Near the beginning of the unscripted one there was a bus with "Vengabus" as it's destination/number. I can't remember any others of the top of my head but remember seeing them.

    Battletech

    I've finished the story and steam says I've put 50 hours into it but you could probably do it in half or 2/3rds of that as i did 2 or 3 side missions usually in between the story missions. Overall I've enjoyed it and these are my rambley thoughts in spoilers:

    Jeff's wife also had a health scare last year which he mentioned on the podcast as well Twitter and Reddit. I don't think it's creepy to be curious who Jeff's wife is.

    Battletech

    I've played about 5-6 hours of this and I'm enjoying it. My only experience with the Battletech/mechwarrior world was ages ago; some freebie demo off the front of a PC magazine so am enjoying the backstory/world stuff. Gamewise I'm enjoying the tinkering and mechwarrior progression but haven't delved too far into this yet. The actual battles to me are fairly satisfying, though I've only encountered one fight that I got totally wrong and was wiped out Spec wise my computer is just above recommend spec but my gtx970 runs about 60-63 degrees despite there not much on screen, the same goes for when I'm using the ship ui. I suppose it's consistent if nothing else. That's with new drivers as well that were mentioned further up.
  11. I went into The Works bookshop here in Stockton and the were selling Disney Infinity characters for £5. I have no idea from which range they were (there were Marvel characters) and from reading the last few posts they're not a cheap as other places but, if you were looking for a specific character it could be another place to look.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Suppose this is as good of place to put this: Hamill does briefly talk about TLJ near-ish the end, so spoilers beware!

    The bit where they were complaining about Far Cry's poor American stereotypes seemed somewhat ironic since American game studio's have been doing poor <insert country of choice> stereotypes since forever. They seemed slightly indignant that it wasn't a faithful potrayl of rural/surburban America when I suspect (I haven't played Far Cry 5) it wasn't meant to be.

    Sea of Thieves - Get Yer Booty!

    I worked with the Character Lead many moons ago and have him on Twitter. He's posted some of the character stuff over on artstation if anyone's interested.

    I'm cheap, i don't have a subscription and only watch the free stuff on Youtube so don't have the depth of knowledge some of you guys have of them but watching the Sea of Thieves launch stream its like they've never played games before. I realise they're having "fun" and not taking things too seriously but you can't complain somethings too hard; wondering why you're getting owned, over and over, whilst using a "sniper" rifle, 5 feet from a metal skeleton. Or something's not very clearly written but you get distracted by hats and beards every 2 seconds.
