    The Expanse - officially saved by Amazon

    Definitely. Most of the first series had me liking it, but not seeing what all the fuss was about. Then it kicks off big time.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    This looks so fucking good
  3. Got a £5 off code for use when buying from Amazon PS4 or Xbox. Pm me. No idea if this is cheaper than Cdkeys or whatever.

    Harry Potter is 20 years old

    Doing the same at the moment. Finished HBP reading it to my two last week. I discovered Philosophers Stone when I was about 22 and gave it a try. Liked it without loving it, but I was hooked. Ripped through that and COS in a week just days before Azkaban came out and from then I was a preorder, pick up at 8am and the Friday booked off work to pile through it that day and over the weekend. They’re my favourite fictional thing (like anything including series of films, books, TV etc) and it’s been amazing going through them for me the 4th time with the kids, seeing it through their eyes. The gasps and shocked looks I got from ‘He turned around. It wasn’t Snape. It wasn’t even Voldemort... It was Quirrell.’ and having the kids asking questions and discussing their theories about who the Half-Blood Prince is, then the shock when it’s revealed. Since finishing HBP they’ve been questioning me daily about R.A.B. I think one of the reasons it’s so well loved is it’s got such a lot of heart. The whole thing about everyone having the capacity for good and evil in them, but what you actually choose to do being what’s important, being able to be a good person despite having to go through what HP goes through both during and before the books, the importance of friendship and of having people around you who care about you and look out for you and how all that can define how someone deals with loss. It has a remarkable number of moral points in it and all of them positive.

    Films that are good for the soul

    Most underrated Disney film. Shits all over Frozen. It’s absolutely brilliant. Also The Truman Show.

    Princess Bride
  8. Return of the Jedi, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Terminator 2, Bladerunner 2049, The Dark Knight, Inception, Inside Out. the one that really sticks with me though was The Matrix. As others have mentioned I was in the same situation of knowing absolutely nothing about it, at all. I pretty much got dragged along to it against my will and then when Trinity ran up the fucking wall in the opening scene my jaw just dropped and pretty much stayed that way for the next 2 hours or whatever it was.

    Monster Hunter: World

    Thanks, appreciate you answering. From looking at a random video that explained the 'unspoken loop' of MH games I've settled into it somewhat as I felt it was kind of running away from me a bit as I was generally just heading into the next assigned quest. Now running with some investigations to build experience and parts for upgrades. Upgraded my twinblades to the Rending Beaks and my damage output has jumped massively, which I'm assuming is the combo of the higher base damage and the Affinity boost, coupled with some better armour management to increase my damage as well as stamina regen and base stamina also. I'm now taking out the Great Jagras in a couple of minutes, which is a big old improvement. DO you need to worry about cash? I seem to be swimming in Zenny(?) even after upgrading and purchasing all the armour I can, but maybe the later weapons and armour sets leap up in cost proportionally? Had a brief dabble with the Longsword, but my avatar felt so, so slow compared to the twinblades I've reverted back for now.

    Monster Hunter: World

    This is my first Monster Hunter game, started yesterday on PC. I’ve checked out some of the ‘things beginners should know’ articles but I’m also trying to go into it with that sense of what the fucks going on? that’s so important too. Really enjoying it so far, slowly getting used to the combat as in Soulsborne I’m very much a lock-on guy and I find I need to change it up much more in this. I have a couple of questions if anyone would be so good to offer some guidance. Is it supposed to be this - for want of a better word - easy? I’m mediocre to average at most games, but i’ve not died a single time Like none of the big guys have been easy, in that it takes a while to clock them, the last mission above there took me 39 minutes of which about 20 was the main battle but the fights feel more like a war of attrition, wearing them slowly down rather than being in any danger. And this leads on to my second question: Am I doing it right? By that I mean the combat. I’m using the twinblades and as mentioned the last dude in the mission above took me about 20 minutes to do over. The larger beasts so far, I feel like I should be fighting them cleverer, instead i’m just wailing away with a combo and then dodging out of trouble. It looks like I should be using flashier combos and doing more impressive damage stuff like that, but i’ve no idea if that’s actually the case. I’m wondering if this is how newbies fights usually go and will I naturally learn more as I go to increase my efficiency and speed? Though the game explains a lot to you (thought some of it very poorly) I feel like the combat mechanics are still rather vague. I am really really enjoying it so far. The world looks great, I love the way a lot of the quest stuff is doable just as you go about your business. I’m just not sure if I’m getting the most out of the combat.

    HBO's Westworld. Yee-Haww Co/w,bo.Y@@@ [FATAL ERROR]

    It has it's flaws and yes, I'd say it's not as good as the first series. But I really, really enjoyed watching it, some of the performances were just superb and I find the themes very interesting.

    Thanks for pointing that out. Never noticed it before but now I can't ignore it and it's driving me mad as well. Appreciate it.

    Add me to the list of folk who've dug out the PS3 and started another playthrough of what is still my favourite game. Spoilered for length:
