  1. I( did almost break my rule of not killing an absent party member - fireball took you to 1 hit point.
  2. Has anyone bought the German 4K release of rollerball? fantastic package but can’t see if ALL the extras have English language optiona
  3. So my sub sorted itself out and I got my back issues from Oxfam and 2000adonline so I started with a "run up" from prog 2224. I'm now on 2236 of my 2000AD revival here are some jumbled up thoughts - It is a blooming meaty read in general, I've read 12 issues over last couple of weeks and it takes time to read and appreciate them just like it did back in the day - I still struggle with some of the stories/layouts that seem less words and "art based or visual based" like MEchastopheles and Visions of DeadWorld - I find them harder going - Overall they are pretty damned good but they feel similar to what I read 30 years ago. The documentary on 2000ad (Arrow films "channel" on amazon) is pretty on the nose with regard to the fact they are selling to the same customers who are now just 30 years older. I am not sure how many teens read it. Also I have read one "Regenned" issue and it was fun but again appealed more to me and can't see how it would appeal to the "youth of today" might try my ten year old with the regenned and see what he thinks. So the stories/art so far Judge Dredd - All positive barring one story "easy money" which I felt was tonally odd. "Penitent Man" was superb (great art), the Rowdy Yates story was fun (again great art) and the "Brief Encounter" story was really good as well with some lovely "clean" art I thought. Just the one duffer which I wasn't keen on the art for either. Thistlebone - This is a big miss for me... bounced off it and didn't really connect with it at all. I started on part 4 which won't have helped I guess. I loved the art though very expressive. Feral & Foe II - I love this, just finished the arc and it was fun actually made me laugh and had a decent story. I didn't really follow the "lore" that well but it constructed a story where I didn't need to. The humour reminded me very vaguely of Sam Slade (which I loved) in that irreverant style. The art was very good and loved the lettering work that made it really obvious who was/wasn't speaking etc. Visions of Deadworld - loved the creepy art but struggled to follow the plots - seemed overly simple and obviously part of something much bigger. But loved the art and atmosphere. The 3thrillers and Terror Tale and Future Shocks - none really stood out. Half Life was fun but felt like I'd read it quite a few times. "regarding Henry" was a well contained little story, classic Future shock. THe others were quite quirky "CHorus & RIng" and "Symbiotic Love Triangle" but readable. Two others are just starting up Chimpsky's Law - Bit of a fun one this with a mix of planet of the apes with a detective novel built in. Department K - it's one of those "wacky" serials that I usually bounce off but I'm giving it a go As usual I'm writing all this out for my own amusement and eventually I'll catch up and be chatting about the same issues as everyone else
  4. America is fantastic but a bit heavy as an intro to Dredd. CaseFiles 1-10 are great and inc cursed earth and apocalypse war etc. Enough one off stuff as well to give you a grounding. Working from case file 1 also lets you see the genesis of the idea and how it develops.
  5. I am honestly trying to think realistically A simplified FTL? Papers please would be fantastic! hue? slay the spire? hearthstone? ( or any card rogue type game!)
  6. Boy am I only just realising the consequences of my actionthhh
  7. Hey I heard that CHannel 4 might be rebooting Gamesmaster. the super successful thread advertising it seems to have been mysteriously deleted (nothing to do with the curmudgeonly gentle mocking from this pensioners gaming forum I'm sure). Hope he got plenty of guests apply from here.
  8. Oh Eneba are like kinguin and g2a? always felt a bit grubby going that route as the keys are sometimes dodgy arent they?
  9. Sorry but I am going to cry off due to bank holiday stuff that has overrun somewhat! We will reconvene next week when no "family fun" can interrupt my D&D!
  10. That site literally has a similar 6 week course on introduction to contemporary art A cursory glance at night courses elsewhere will find you similar short courses in cinema theatre and other art forms
  11. does it start at the difficulty level it ended on with the original? Or does it start off easier like the original. The last couple of levels of the first game stretched me quite a bit so if that was the starting point for the sequel I might struggle
  12. And it's FREE* *disclaimer - Pedantically speaking it is not free! it is, of course, included with Gamepass - a service which costs £10.99 a month. Or £1 plus the cost of annual Gold subs - see thread for details on how to do the "trick". Investments may go up or down please gamble responsibly.
  13. With that wording then that certainly is a subjective opinion... your original definitive wording was objectively wrong and not an opinion. Also they react significantly different enough that people write articles about the best off road cars and tunes for cars for use off road in FH4. If you want an ultra realistic offroad racing game I am sure there are some around.
