    UK Games Expo

    Si, you should know I've been doing my research... https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/272427/terramara - Terramara, which is top of my list as it's a worker placement made (in part) by some of the folk behind Lorenzo, Coimbra, etc. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/177096/freedom Freedom! A seige game designed by the chap behind Fields of Green, randomly. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/243993/la-stanza La Stanza - actiony selectiony by the team who usually make What's Your Game games, but this is being published by Quined. Pete backed it on Kickstarter though, so we'll get to play it at some point. https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/256636/item/6930637#item6930637 - COIN Tribes. May remain PnP, but it's basically a COIN game boiled down to 9 cards and some dice... (I'm tempted to grab a copy of this anyway!)

    Nintendo Switch

    Part of me wouldn't be surprised if they remove the touch part of the screen - it's purely optional for the handheld factor and obviously is redundant when docked anyway.
  3. I bought it a couple of days ago, and this description is absolutely spot on. V. enjoyable.

    Nintendo Switch

    Heist is fantastic - it's only too short as I wanted to keep on playing! Really looking forward to SQ; only a couple of days to go! And Picross S3 is out on the same day, so Nintendo will do well out of me this week.

    Borderlands 3 - Gameplay Reveal 6pm

    I'm vainly hoping either for a Switch version of BL3, or at least not have too high specs for my aging PC... Sigh. Maybe I need to upgrade / buy a modern console at some point. In the interim, I've played an awful lot of BL1 & 2 (and completed the underrated Tales...), and have a copy of the Pre-Sequel I've not yet cracked open - is it worth my time?

    Cheers folks - will pass that on.

    The Beer Thread

    Would anyone recommend any of the craft beer subscription clubs / services? My wife has asked me for some birthday ideas, and I'm scratching around trying to think of some!

    Bargain buys for everyone.

    Citrus is a really nice tile laying, pseudo area control game - played it a load with my wife when it first came out.

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    Right, I think I need to start a new character. I've somehow hit Paragon 170 with my first character (Monk) on Torment 7, I think. What should I try next that feels properly different?

    Best lamb cut for xmas dinner?

    We tend to roast a leg using this recipe: https://www.cookstr.com/Lamb/Slow-Cooked-Lamb-with-Beans The beans below it catch all the super lamb juices and make a a tasty smush (as it's called in our house!)

    As sold by my local butcher - definitely recommended!

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    Q: is it better to have two decent one handed weapons or one stronger two handed weapon? The two handed weapon has a load of green arrows, but is it comparing only with a single one of my equipped weapons, or the combined strength?

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    Cheers for the tips, but what's special about lev 70? Torment? Mats? Crouching? Bank slots? Oh man, I'm so innocent about this game!

    Diablo III - Eternal Collection out on Switch

    Snap! Though Seasonal Story; I've put a little time into it (Lev 19 Monk) and think I'm getting the hang of what several of the systems do, but there's an awful lot of trial and error (e.g. what the services of some of the vendors offer do). Is there a good guide for noobs out there?
  15. Holy cow, this is the same conversation as I remember being had years ago when Porsche decided to start making the Cayenne (a big 4x4) and the Panamera - "fans" were up in arms about how dare the company turn it's back on it's core buyers (or at least a very vocal minority). Funnily enough, Porsche's strategy made the company a load of cash and has enabled them to invest even more into their 9xx sports car lines, improving them further and continuing to be at the forefront of drivers cars - incredibly, by offering new choice to people in different markets (and those new markets now becoming their volume lines, and thus the product people are more likely to experience through the brand), they didn't prevent people buying or enjoying their core product. In other words the "vocal minority" become even more of a minority and if their voice had won over, it's likely the product they claimed to love so much would've suffered in the medium- long term. So yes, cite your opinion if the actual product you love is being changed in a way you feel is to its detriment, but maybe consider keeping quiet if an announcement has zero tangible effect on that core product (and bear in mind it may even help your loved product become better). Sheesh.
