    The Division 2

    This is so, so good. I’ve had a rare day to myself today, and I spent most of it playing this. The highlight was probably one of the side missions, which finished with a crazily intense firefight. We just about scraped through on our second attempt, and it was amazing. If you’re playing on Xbox, I can highly recommend joining The Ronin and teaming up. I mostly stick to single player games these days and was all set to spend most of this solo, but it’s so much better with others.
  2. That's absolutely the sensible thing to do. Hope everything goes well. Unfortunately I need to miss next week's session though. I'm away on my stag do, to a mystery location.

    The Division 2

    This just gets better and better. I thought I was heading straight to buyers remorse when I bought this, as I bounced off the first game quite quickly, but I’ve just reached level 12 and I’m having a blast. The space museum mission was excellent, and after playing through the Dark Zone tutorial I can see that being pretty cool. Oh, and playing with others from the clan takes things to another level on its own. Thanks @SimonC.

    Star Trek Discovery

    That's the thing though, aside from Into Darkness I actually quite like the Abrams movies. They're hardly classic Star Trek, but they're fun in their own way. Quinto's a much better Spock than this guy too. Discovery isn't just "not good Star Trek", it's simply not good.

    Star Trek Discovery

    That was unbelievably dumb. Almost every single scene was stupid for one reason or another. I was really warming to this show earlier in the season, but it's falling to pieces now. EDIT: Oh lord, I forgot about the "time crystal" thing.

    I've joined. Why not?
  7. You have to hold A as I recall, so yes he's doing it wrong.

    Destiny 2

    The social areas are meant to be social, both for gameplay and lore reasons. You're just one of many Guardians going about your business, outside of the story campaigns where everyone's the most important Guardian who ever lived. Even then though, it still makes sense for you to run into other Guardians in the social areas.

    I'd be up for the Xbox clan if you do make one.

    The Division 2

    I seem to be utterly awful at this, although I suspect I might have just realised why. I've reached level 6 but I've only played through one main mission, and it looks like those are what give you your main skill upgrades. I also think I've made a mistake getting the Xbox One version bearing in mind where the rest of you are playing.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Spock's a bit of a dick in this, to the point where he seems like a completely different character to the Spock I know. I'm assuming he's being played as more emotional due to his smile in the TOS pilot, but it's a bit of a leap to go from that to this. This episode was one of my least favourite so far I think. So much of it was just daft, and yes the transporter could have solved everything at the end. Sure that's always been a narrative problem in Star Trek, but there's usually some technobable to explain why it can't be used. Here there was nothing. Worse than that though: Oh and Section 31 continues to make no sense. Neither does their ridiculous selection box of space mines.
  12. I really thought the empty box could have been an illusion. It was unlikely, but the inscription did say to contrast all options. I took it a bit too literally.

    The Vela (Serial Box)

    Yep! You can download them in three different formats along with an audiobook version, including mobi. I read them on a Kindle myself.

    The Vela (Serial Box)

    I don’t know if anyone else is reading this, but after two episodes I’m quite intrigued to see where it’s going. It’s a space opera about a mission to find a missing refugee ship in a system with a dying star, and it’s being written and released like a TV show. There’s a team of writers involved, each episode takes about fourty minutes to read and has its own arc within the ongoing story. I thought the first part was a little too action heavy without enough character development, but the second slowed things right down for a much more character led story. I like the universe it’s building too, and it’s quite timely with its themes of xenophobia and environmentalism. It’s nothing mind blowing, but it’s solid so far and the novelty of the format alone is interesting enough for me. I only heard of Serial Box when they started to publicise The Vela, but I absolutely love the concept. They’ve clearly been around for a while as they’ve released quite a few series in different genres, some of which have had several seasons already. They include audiobook versions of each episode they release as part of the price too, although I’ve stuck with reading The Vela for now. I don’t suppose anyone else is reading this, or anything else Serial Box have put out?
