  1. Nice one, was a bit overwhelmed by the tutorial and felt odd not getting straight into a grind mentality. But as someone who's spent plenty on MTG cards just to play draft on the holidays with pals the economy really isn't that off putting provided I get my head around the game. This introduction from the Artifact Reddit was pretty useful in explaining some things the tutorial didn't.

    The Beer Thread

    That Twitter guy was in central Edinburgh during the festival, so for a brief spell each year can probably out-hipster everywhere on earth. Manchester/Liverpool ones are fine every time I've been in. Their Elvis Juice, black lager and Electric India saison are all a cut above and at least you can get half way decent beer in the corner shop thanks to Dead Pony and the IPA.
  3. I'm relying on my shonky memory of a months old video but I think the idea is that you get all the cards included. Certainly they were looking to avoid 'pay to win' advantages. Saying it now that does sound a bit nuts given Valve + Hearthstone would equal megabucks, they'd monetise it in other ways however.

    Jay Rayner reviews Le Cinq, Paris

    Changed days when people think Jay Rayner is pompous, compared to Gill or Meades he's quite considered and earnest. Although you could argue their invective filled take downs better fit an era when food media (all media) wasn't long past the point of parody. Hard to beat the time Meades reviewed a Planet Hollywood, slagging off the staff, customers, decor and everything else only devoting a single line to... "The food, incidentally, is crap."

    Blade Runner 2049

    Genuine question, I have no idea about movie economics. But does that still work the same way now? Thought with the astronomical budgets and so many films on the slate if something doesn't take off hugely in at least one territory then it's likely a flop. Went to our community cinema and paid the princely sum of £2.50 for a ticket. Screen was good, thought the rear surrounds were very loud but that actually made the city sections enjoyable with the bustle going on around you. Seriously one of the best films I've seen in ages, a beautiful, tense experience that left plenty of space and room for the imagination.
  6. Difference between occupation and wiping out their armies I'd imagine. Always took the North to being analogous to Scotland with sheer distance and the terrain making it difficult to hold. The other option might have been a harrowing of the North, that doesn't come without consequences though.

    Audio Club

    Was tempted to make a little hardware setup based around the Elektron Digitakt and a couple of simple synths or simply to get an Analog 4 while they're cheap. Always had more fun tweaking stuff with knob per parameter rigs but not sure it would quite be the same with menu diving on the Elektrons and went with a cheaper option of updating to Komplete 11 Ultimate in the recent sale. Molekular, Reaktor 6, Polyplex and Prism are all fantastic but really the CPU and latency get on my nerves on laptop. So after all that I'm down to a couple of ancient Waldorf plugins, AIR Hybrid and Uhe's Ace which I'm finding much more fun. Using native effects and simple instruments with barely any latency in Renoise is pretty close to a hardware setup. If anyone fancies update from Ultimate 2-9 for the same price it was in the last summer sale let me know.

    Titanfall 2

    Yeah anyone who can run and gun with the Kraber has my undying respect. I took a fancy to the Double Take banner and spent hours being woeful, but great fun on slow moving games when it gives you the edge at middle distance with the stock sights.

    Titanfall 2

    Struggle to see how snipers are viable as a class for whole games, it simply moves too fast. Handy to have a loadout for counter sniping campers though, funny how long people think they can stay still for.
  10. Yeha I'm going with the idea that they take Casterly Rock in some kind of epic pyrrhic victory, only for Cersei to go 'meh, the gold mines are empty guys". A blow for sure but not enough for any real leverage.

    Euro 2016 thread

    I never even suggested you should support them. Just maybe don't feel too sore about them celebrating was all. Anyway we can all get behind Iceland now, at least until the miracle occurs and we get Wales vs Iceland in the final.

    Euro 2016 thread

    Meh it was a short clip so I didn't see it as being a great deal more than what you've described. They had effectively just progressed in a major tournament further than their nearest rival, worth celebrating I'd say and I'd be doing the same if it was Scotland. No danger of that happening any time soon though.

    Euro 2016 thread

    I'm surprised Wales celebrating England losing is any kind of a revelation to anyone, but then I'm Scottish. Most Welshies I know are just as anti-England FC as us. Would you expect them to politely clap while looking disappointed? How would you expect fans of Liverpool to react if Man U got knocked out of the Champions League?

    While Lawro and Rio can burn in the lesser hells for dismissing them too. Exactly what from England's group performances made anyone think this would be a cakewalk I don't know.

    XCOM 2 - War of the Chosen

    Yeah after adjusting to a few of the changes I was finding it too easy on Veteran, slipping straight back into my play style from the previous game. Going to restart on Commander now I'm 5 hours in, the early game forging my super squad is the best bit anyway. Bit disappointed that a squad of Grenadiers and Rangers is still such an easy, lazy formula and there's not much to encourage a more balanced squad. Although adding the pistol with free shots has made snipers more fun.
