  1. I am not watching any of those videos you cunts. I am going to do the thing I hate and ignore this game until it’s all patched and sexy on PS5
  2. aka the R* approach. Want to use your PC in GTA? First you must sit down at your chair which takes ages. Then you must lean forwards and tap at the keyboard, which takes ages. Want to open your safe? Strap in, it takes a million years. Red dead: four hours to kneel down by a fire and cook a single piece of meat. You have to make split point bullets ONE AT A TIME. Want to use that gun emplacement? Ok, wait for your hair to go grey while you watch an animation you can’t cancel if someone is shooting at you. Want to leave that gun emplacement? Ok, wait for your hair to go grey while you watch an animation you speed up if someone is shooting at you. Did you start reloading while someone started shooting at you? You can no longer dodge - you have to leap in the air until the animation is complete. Fucking kill yourself R* edit: while I’m here, the UI of R* games is a fucking shambles. I would say that whoever is responsible needs to be fired into the sun, but that would suggest that it’s been built by an actual team, rather than piecemeal by various people responsible for wildly different thinks, resulting in this schizophrenic Frankenstein’s monster we have. There’s no excuse for it. There’s no consistency whatsoever. For example, I have 30+ treasure maps on RD: O that I haven’t opened. I haven’t opened them because it’s super inefficient - the map is large and traveling takes forever so it stands to reason you would want to start with one that describes a treasure nearby. You can’t. You have to open the satchel, navigate to documents tab, open treasure maps, and then click on one with a name that sounds familiar. You cannot look at the world map while you do that, as it exits the satchel interface. So you click on a map, usefully titled something like Woodsman’s Sigh, and watch a video of your character opening the map. Then if you’ve fucked up and the location is down in Louisiana while you’re in New Mexico, you have to watch a video of your character putting their map away. Then you have to open the satchel menu and do it all over again. Unacceptable. There’s no “return to menu” button while you’re looking at the treasure map also every button does something slightly different depending on how long you hold it or what other buttons your currently holding or whether you’re near a horse or an officer of the law or a shoe or a campfire or a piece of rope. for example, triangle is “mount horse” unless your horse is near a policeman, at which point triangle is “tackle policeman to the ground, get off him, mount your horse, flee through the streets of New Orleans frantically whilst pursued by every gunman in Christendom, and then clippings a bollard and being projected from your horse into a streetcar. Fuck off also you automatically stop galloping or sprinting when you’re near a campfire for some reason, which is beyond maddening if you’re being shot at inexcusable. The budget for this game was staggering inexcusable
  3. QTEs Always online GaaS single-player shit, like The Division, although I loved those games Open-world Ubisoft, excluding The Division Millions of hours of cutscenes upon starting a game. For fuck’s sake, gaming surely should have moved on. This is the clunky expositional dialogue of video games. Why can’t you tell a story through actions you fucking cunt. “Here is all the backstory and character motivation.” Just tease it to is organically you bloated turds. Maybe spend more money making the game than making the movies about the game.
  4. Deafening. Constant roar of cheering and applause, which while justified, is distracting enough that I’ve put on subtitles.
  5. I’m buying a CMMG Banshee because I loved using it in the Division. So it works!
  6. Or spin her around in the Med screen and watch her tits jiggle, and then she throws up from dizziness when you unpause
  7. I’m playing Wildlands off and on right now and my enthusiasm is petering out. Yeah, cartels do some heinous shit but most of the people you’re wasting with sniper rifles, mortar fire, and hand grenades are poverty-stricken and desperate, living in a country where education and infrastructure are quite poor. Most of the people who work for and with the cartels do so out of necessity and/ or threat of execution of them and their families so Uncle Sam raining death on a cartel camp is really rubbing me the wrong way, especially given the CIA and DEA’s sordid history in S and C America.
  8. Fair enough man, having worked there I would describe the latter half of your post to be 100% accurate.
  9. Waitrose is pretty good, no? 3 different kinds of quail eggs!
  10. My regional grocery store, Wegmans, is legendary in the NE. It’s like a foodie’s Disneyland inside. All manner of fabulous quality produce, hand-baked bread, deli counters etc, and excellent sushi chefs and butchers etc. You can get anything from sushi grade tuna to live lobster, from a rack of lamb to a slab of pork belly to duck confit. You could buy a whole half cow if you had the cash. And it’s not overpriced and staffed by crusties, unlike Whole Foods. Their international food sections are bangin’, they sell Lion bars and Yorkies in addition to Marmite and Tate & Lyle golden syrup. Best vegan and gluten free sections I’ve ever seen.
  11. You’re not a very horrible man are you Here are some short rib tacos I made the other night with another sexy salsa and some bits and bobs. Short ribs disintegrated when I took them out the pan, flavor was astonishing. Shit picture sorry. I snapped it while loading the Westworld finale. Yes, I mainly cook Mexican or tex mex dishes. I did a ceviche the other day but forgot to take a picture.
  12. Jett looked good, as did the anime-looking Zelda ripoff. Generally thought it was pretty meh. I find it hard to get excited these days. Godfall looked fucking terrible. “Breathtaking Weapons!” Yeah I’m sure they are
  13. That’s rough dude, I run the worlds squishiest crit build with unbreakable on my chest piece and never die. I even have 2 skill tiers to stop my drone and firefly being worthless. What’s your damage output like? I can generally mow down people on solo Heroics before they have a chance to rush me, although the Hyena with the Tec-9 held sideways is a huge dick and usually strips my shield down from 10 miles away in one shot PS this isn’t a git gud post - I’m not that good
  14. Control “feels” right also. Playing Wildlands right now and it feels like I’m controlling a drunk Boston Dynamics robot. Div2 only got annoying for me when grinding for targeted loot in very late endgame, hours soloing Heroic missions over and over in the hopes of getting a pair of gloves with +.01% higher Weapon Damage or whatever. But that was after much, much content and fun with the homeboys. Now that my build is as good as I can be bothered to make it I just jump on every now and again with the mates Probs the best $10 I ever spent
  15. I got it for a similar price and it gave me hundreds and hundreds of hours of great fun. Probably the best value for money $10 I’ve ever spent. I wouldn’t have been annoyed if I’d paid full msrp
  16. Tbh if they rereleased the OG trilogy on PS4 with zero improvements I’d pay a hundred dollars for it. Need all the DLC though obviously
  17. Just use the white to make a sour, and use the yolk to make a flip later before bed. It doesn’t have to be an actual “flip” i.e. a designated flip recipe - I use yolk more or less interchangeably with heavy cream in drinks like brandy alexanders, for instance. Having made thousands of sours and fucked around with aquafaba and the fee foam etc I want to confidently say I believe that egg white is the king and anything else is second best. Pineapple juice is pretty good but can dissipate rapidly and then your drink tastes of pineapple which you don’t always want. Soy Lecithin is great and all but it’s way quicker and simpler to crack an egg. Pro tip: only use half the egg white in a standard-size drink. More than that is excessive I have actually been to Clyde Common a couple of times and chatted with Morgenthaler. I’ve been following his blog and buying his books for years, he is an absolute gent (and will chat with you if you message him on Instagram). A lot of techniques and recipes I’ve used, refined or developed have been based on blog entries he has written. Portland is such a fabulous city, my gf and I are planning on moving there soon. Northern Oregon is one of my favorite places in the states, highly recommend to everyone
  18. Thomas Keller is currently doing a techniques masterclass. I bought masterclass already for Gabrielle Camara’s Mexican classes and dipped into the Keller stuff, it’s excellent.
  19. Made a big ole taco spread with homemade salsas, spicy mayo, avocados, cojita cheese, watermelon salad, and some other stuff I can’t remember. Cooked the pork shoulder and octopus over a wood fire I threw together with some random cinder blocks and the grill from the oven. Oh yeah elote and asparagus Great success
  20. YMMV I guess, I use my cast iron for literally everything except eggs. I can cook eggs in it, but I prefer to use a non-stick with the method I employ. The thing I like about my cast iron is that unless my gf locks it in the oven on a self-clean cycle there’s almost zero maintenance and it just improves with age. I can also do a one handed toss with it, but I am an extraordinarily masculine character of Herculean strength and immense sexual prowess I agree that non-stick pans are an absolute must for any novice cook, or person who prefers not to spend the evening scrubbing their fucking pans.
  21. These two losers I work with play it around 8 hours each day when they get home from work. Does not compute
