  1. John Steinbeck from The Grapes of Wrath. For the last two sentences really. "What if they won’t scare? What if they stand up and take it and shoot back? These men were armed when they were children. A gun is an extension of themselves. What if they won’t scare? What if some time an army of them marches on the land as the Lombards did in Italy, as the Germans did on Gaul and Turks did on Byzantium? They were land-hungry, ill-armed hordes took and the legions could not stop them. Slaughter and terror did not stop them. How can you frighten a man whose hunger is not only in his own cramped stomach but in the wretched bellies of his children? You can’t scare him--he has known a fear beyond every other."
  2. Did anyone pick this up in the end? I really like the look of it but have a lot of top down dungeon crawlers in my backlog untouched. Is it better than them?

    Nintendo Switch

    This is terrible advice. Consumer rights in this country are very weak in practice and you are unlikely to win any case against a retailer without spending money. The only recourse you really have is under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 or the Consumer Rights Act 2015, and neither of those sets any kind of limit on how long things should be expected to last. Only that they should last a reasonable time. You might argue that 2 years is not a reasonable time, but that would depend on how it was used what condition it was kept in and any number of other variables the retailer can argue led to the fault. The other avenue is to argue that the item was not fit for purpose when it was sold to you, but crucially it would be up to you to prove this. A very difficult and potentially expensive thing to do. The only option Strafe has is to contact the retailer and argue that the item was not fit for purpose and hope they replace it, or to appeal to Nintendo's good nature to waive the fee. The legal route is expensive and risky and the law is against you.

    The Jazz Thread

    Amazing. Simply amazing. Surely the greatest jazz ensemble of all time.

    Fallout 4 - VR Coming Soon

    This is bringing back great memories of my own survival playthrough. It really elevates the game into something special. Must... not... start... another... playthrough...

    The Unofficial Pre-E3 2018 Hype Thread

    Aren't both the PS4 and Switch selling in record numbers?

    Must have PSP games. What's your top 5

    This thread prompted me to dig out my old PSP 1000 to finally play Jeanne D'Arc or Brave Story. You forget just how small a thing it was. I've played a lot of PS Vita since that was released and it seems massive next to the PSP. The bad news is it's now got a glitch where the Home button is registering presses when I move the console, boo! It's pretty much unplayable. The good news is it justifies me picking up a PSP Go, which I wanted when it was released but couldn't justify the cost.

    Another vote for Tactics Ogre. It's phenomenonally good.
  10. Considering the amount of time I spend scrolling through the list of unplayed games on my PS4 (and failing to find anything so playing Pro Evolution Soccer instead), adding all the PS3 games I own to that list would definitely not be an advantage for me. I'm not very good at making decisions, OK!

    Watchmen possibly coming to HBO

    I nearly negged John's post there as a way of proxy negging Lindelof. But you shouldn't shoot the messenger I guess.

    Playstation Vita

    Bugger. They must have removed it because I have it on my Vita right now.
  13. To be fair I was about 2/3rd through before I realised it was a joke. Shows you how crazy this whole thing is.
  14. I've see worse films than Lucy, ( I watch the horror channel pretty regularly) but I can't think of many I disliked more.

    Roguelikes / Roguelites

    I just went to purchase it and it turns out I already did. That happens to me a lot with Vita titles.
