  1. Need a distro that'll work with 768mb RAM then that's exactly what I'm going to do with it.
  2. Bloodshot This is another film that I know, objectively, is pretty bad, but I still really enjoyed it. Vin Diesel Vin Diesels, stuff blows up, people die. The plot is actually pretty good, with a decent twist midway through, but there are holes in it that you could drive Vin Diesel through. The characters are ones we've all seen a million times before. There's an amazingly bad sequence where they are supposed to be in London, but it looked like they were in somewhere like South Africa or maybe Australia. They didn't even bother putting UK plates on all the cars. But it was a good action film. Very enjoyable for a Saturday night in. 4/5
  3. Good point, well made. I actually love watching LGR on YouTube because of the nostalgia and "that's weird" factors, but I also kinda go "but why though?"
  4. Not wanting to troll, but this is one of the few retro things I just don't get. I understand wanting to play games on the original console. I understand wanting to play games on the original micro, and do all the unique things that micros used to do. But, to me, an IBM compatible is an IBM compatible. There surely isn't anything that you could play on DOS 6.22 that you can't now play on Windows 10 and I don't think there's anything interesting that you could do then that you can't do now? Saying that, I have a Windows XP laptop that I'm wondering if there's anything interesting I can do with...
  5. Untitled Goose Game Played this on Game Pass, entirely with my kids. It's been great fun working out how to do stuff, not least because some of their ridiculous suggestions have worked. A really lovely, enjoyable experience. Honk!
  6. 1917 I thought this started off really well. The part where they first make their way out into no man's land and towards the enemy lines was unbelievably tense. And that's the point where us started to go downhill and continued in that direction to the end. The problem was that it went from being grounded in reality to just becoming a set of slightly daft events. There were way too many coincidences and contrivances to make it in any way believable. And it fell rather jaringly into the Hollywood trope of the infinite ammo magazine - they made a point of showing them loading their rifles at the start, then they never reload again. I also thought the acting was almost universally poor throughout. It was very, very well shot and atmospheric, though. I think I'm being generous with 2/5.
  7. Spies In Disguise It has Will Smith being Will Smith, Tom Holland being Tim Holland and a decent, if unoriginal plot - ultra cool spy needs the help of nerdy tech guy after the big bad frames him for stealing the maguffin. The moral of the whole thing is rammed home somewhat, but it's a kids film so what do you expect? It was a good film, though. Lots of genuine laugh out loud moments, nothing too scary for the kids, just a bit of lightweight fluff. 4/5
  8. Noob question: can you shrink rooms you've built? I built a GP room way too big and want to shrink it down to the minimum size. I can rearrange and move it, but I can't work out how to make it smaller. On Xbox, if that makes any difference.
  9. Running with the Devil (2019) I wrote a long post about this, then accidentally deleted it, so here's the summary: it's utter, utter shite. 0/5
  10. I've only very recently strayed online with gaming. Bit of an eye opener. I normally do well against the AI on the harder difficulties. Then I went online and saw cars vanish into the distance immediately, then u never saw them again until I finished. I could not for the life of me work out how they were doing it. I tried various tunes, I practiced and practiced. And then I lost online some more. Sulked. Gave up. Same with Mortal Kombat. Smashed the fuck out of the AI, got battered online. What was actually soul crushing, though, was early after release Scorpion had a couple of moves that could be spammed to win every time. Coming up against a spammy Scorpion and I'd just have to put my controller down and do something else. I had neither the skills nor the inclination to try to combat them.
  11. Yes. Warn people not to vote for Ivanka Trump in 2024! The deal she struck with the Volgans was disastrous.
  12. 20 years old today, evidently. Japanese launch was 4th March 2000. Best console ever.
  13. Moccasin slippers for me. I did a driving day with Prodrive (the Subaru rally team) a decade or do ago. One of the other fellas changed into a pair of driving shoes during the initial briefing. All the instructors, one of whom was in a pair of black leather "school shoes" but still managed to get an imprezza to dance around the track, took the piss mercilessly as soon as he was out of earshot.
