  1. I've binge watched all the other seasons a few times and think a lot of it doesn't resonate properly until you see it again. Loved the bit with Summer as the master elf bowman and both of them teasing Morty (How's the book working out for you?). And the whole build up to the obvious joke with the cat blaming Jerry, who else? for the shit on the beach.
  2. What the fuck are you doing? As she points the TV remote control and frantically taps buttons
  3. Game of the Year A1. Tetris 99 - "A beautiful and wonderfully addictive version of the all time classic pitting you amongst the best of the best and secret geniuses called 'Kacey's mum' or 'Bill'. Marvellous and well worth the price of admission." A2. Divinity Original Sin 2 - "Cos Benny said I could :)" A3. The Division 2 - "Four player co-op - lots of guns - pretty smart AI and a relatively fun storyline puts this amongst my top 5 for the year." A4. Ghost Recon: Breakpoint - "Four player co-op - lots of guns - pretty smart AI and a incredibly stupid storyline puts this amongst my top 5 for the year." A5. Blood & Truth - "VR done large - London gangsters and ducking behind casino slot machines - great fun." Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. The writing in Breakpoint, fucking awful hackneyed rubbish. Z2. Anthem - what a shame, such a great mechanic flying and jumping and fighting. But it didn't know what it wanted to be, and failed miserably at all the other aspects (as well as gamebreaking bugs, terrible menu decisions and awful loading times).This should have stuck as a single player story game and been a redefining moment from the Mass Effect devs. Z3. Me for not playing the goose game yet. Z4. Z5. Sound Design of the Year S1. S2. S3. Visual Design of the Year V1. The Division 2 V2. Breakpoint - there is no doubt Ubisoft craft some lovely looking games. V3. Writing of the Year W1. W2. W3. Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. PC again for me Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Best Supported Game (released pre 2019) of the Year B1. No Mans Sky (another 40 odd hours sunk after the big release) Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2018 or earlier) X1. Divinity Original Sin 2 - coop RPG amazingness Best game character of the year C1. C2. C3. Game of the Decade D1. Zelda Breath of the Wild "When Nintendo had a look at their competitors and thought, hey we could do that...." D2. Elite Dangerous "1400 hours and counting - I've seen things you people wouldn't believe, Attack ships blowing up as I beam laser them, I've flown past black holes and neutron stars, travelled to the centre of the galaxy, traded slaves, discovered worlds and stars and whole systems. So much to see." D3. Crusader Kings II "Massive amount of hours trawling through the reports on potential wives for my heir - then picking one who ends up having a bastard! With his brother!" D4. Civilization 6 "I have always loved Civilization, been playing it on and off for over twenty years. Civ 6 is a really good version, they introduced districts, which make so much sense and allow your cities to sprawl out so much more than they used to. Religion is like a sub game of its own and all the systems within systems and masses of different characters you can choose, just allow for huge flexibility on how you want to play. And the scenarios are pretty good too. I won't stop playing until Civ 7 comes out." D5. Minecraft "Massively original, hugely popular, platinumed on PS4. An amazingly deep game that rewards you for the effort you put in. Multiplayer with my kids, building a world to play and run around. Fantastic game." D6. GTA V "including Online I must have put hundreds of hours into this. A game where you can simply drive and lose time from just bumbling about - fighting the law, getting away from them, fighting them again... etc etc. Plus the races, the missions (on and offline) the crazy side. The one fly being the grind." D7. Super Mario Odyssey "The best Mario game since Galaxy. Galaxy 2 is close, but Odyssey oozes joy." D8. Skyrim "Not much to say about this really that hasn't been already said. It's either this or The Witcher 3 for Action RPG of the decade. VR was just the icing on the already michelin star cake." D9. Stellaris "I doubt anyone else will choose this as a game of the decade, but the galaxy spanning 4x game from the masters of the 4x game really hits the spot. Culture style or Borg? Federation or Psychic warrior lead empire? Peaceful farmers or militaristic slavers... Be what you want, but don't be surprised when the Old Ones are awakened or an AI swarm becomes sentiment and want to take back what you thought was safely yours." D10. Red Dead Redemption 2 "How on earth did they make my Playstation produce such beauty. People bemoan the story and the controls, but I loved every moment."
  4. Haven't played for a while, but IIRC the one tactic that saw me through to the end was saving your zone for when you got yourself in the shit.
  5. https://www.kotaku.co.uk/2019/12/07/in-ai-dungeon-2-you-can-do-anything-even-start-a-rock-band-made-of-skeletons https://www.aidungeon.io/?m=1 Just giving it a quick go....
  6. The no-commentary option is bliss
  7. @neoELITE had no idea that Plymouth and Rovers were playing each other tomorrow, you going?
  8. E3 was pretty funny, I'll probably rewatch then all once we reach the end of this run.
  10. Can things no longer be okay? It's either got to be fantastic or it's shit. Let alone proclaiming your judgment before you even see what it's like. Personally I'm glad it looks like they are doing something different with it, Om knows they'd be fighting against a Detritus* trying to Librarian** Pratchett. *Brick wall **Ape
  11. Yeah very good, I enjoyed the first one too though. Glad it's coming to Channel four.
  12. I can stop playing whenever I want..... Am totally addicted to this now - I bought it on PC about a year ago, played five minutes and gave up. Then the other week I watched some of this guys videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYzO4HZxgXc2UJQD5bIo8AQ Like: And got massively drawn in and thought I'd give it another go with some of the mods that he uses in his videos. Two weeks later, I've bought all the DLC and have put 100 hours in.... good grief. It's so addictive trying to get that traffic running smoothly. And I'll just get into a position where I'm profitable and traffic is flowing (with despawning turned off) and then I'll build something else and it all goes to shit and I'll spend a couple of hours fiddling until I've got back into a good position again... phew!

    Breakpoint is a great game, very few games are such polished coop experiences imo. Ignoring the woeful storyline, the exploration of the world and the core gameplay of invading a defended area and "doing something" is fantastic fun. You can absolutely stealth it, with friends, which is excellent. Then when something blows up, or you mate is spotted and it all goes loud you can defend each other and fight your way through. The loot is just additional in Breakpoint, a head shot is a head shot whether it's a level 1 or level whatever gun. There is only one lesson (I think) Breakpoint should take from BoTW and that's just let me climb everywhere please!
  14. Interesting, first I'd heard of this. Foundation were some of my favourite novels when I was a teenager. I bought the first one on a whim from a charity shop, cos I'd read I Robot and thought I'd try something else by Asimov. I then went through the whole set over the next month or so, wonderful books that felt extra special to me for "discovering" them. As a TV series this could possibly work, and as each book (parts of books) jumps forward in time they could concentrate on a series per time period. The absolutely worse thing they could do is reduce the amount of time the stores span over. I wonder if they will start with Prelude or Forward the Foundation? Bring R Daneel into it at the beginning...
  15. Yeah Cadmium is one of the ones you can't refine as well, well you can make more of it if you've already got some... but that doesn't help. This is really useful for refining: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1m3D-ElN7ek3Y0f-1XDt0IW2l6HxfXi5n5Yr7VLwLbg4/edit#gid=1624428843
  16. Goddam! ME Too!!! Shit... just spent my credit for the month. C'mon Audible you know I have all the Abercrombie books on my Audible and some on Kindle and yet you don't plaster it over my homepage! Grrrrr
  17. For some reason this ended up in the wrong thread... I am almost entirely sure it was my fault one way or the other... But I might post it here anyway as I thought it looked quite interesting:
  18. I have decided to NOT watch season three. I just can't support the junk that was season two. If you lot start raving about it having turned some sort of corner and being actually, y'know, decent... then I might watch it.
  19. Thought this looked pretty interesting: Apologies if previously posted.
  20. Brilliant, will have to remember that one.
  21. Especially when it now names who has alerted the guards "Danster's footsteps were heard!" Fucksake! Leeeeroy Jenkins!
  22. Not really, Behemoths I'd give you, but Wolves come the first time you are pinged by a Drone and don't realise you need to hide.
