  1. The moon on a stick on the Switch.
  2. Bah, was hoping for a £3.49 or something.
  3. Not yet, but just saw a great review of it on twitter: "It turns out it was someone else's fault all along".
  4. I get what you mean (in that I'd generally prefer books to be one offs rather than long series), but I still haven't caught up on the millions of excellent sf books from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s etc., that I've not read yet to be bothered if too many modern authors aren't writing one off books.
  5. I'm enjoying it so far (three episodes in), but not loving it like I did with season 1. As mentioned above, it seems to be following too similar a pattern to season 1 to feel fresh or exciting.
  6. I've watched YouTube ones for shows like Twin Peaks or Dark, where there are mysteries and theories to get into, but not for anything that's just a straightforward show where (I imagine) people would just be banging on about how great it was. I've also enjoyed post-episode podcasts for shows like Chernobyl and Breaking Bad and Inside Number 9, where the writers or directors talk about the making of the episode - I guess that format would work for any type of show you enjoy.
  7. A question about this (not sure if it's know). While the blurb specifically only mentions broken or lost, what happens if you simply buy a new switch? Decide you want a Lite after having an original model, or just want a funky new special edition. Can you restore your island to a new Switch this way? Or is there already a method to do this?
  8. I think it was the extra types of Pikmin in 3 that I wasn't keen on. I preferred the simplicity / purity of the three types in the first. But yeah, the limited number of days in the first was unneccessary.
  9. I think I am in reverse order, but don't feel strongly enough to argue (or I'm not even sure I could argue!). I can't remember why, but the first one had a massive impact on me, and Ioved everything about it. The second one slightly less so, and the third one even less. It could be that the third was objectively the best, but I could never again get that feeling of freshness and surprise I got from the first. Was the DLC for 3 any cop? I never bothered with that, so wondering if that's going to tip me over into getting this.
  10. Had a couple of tries, but kept getting a communication error after successfully entering the dodo code and getting the island name. Maybe a problem at my end.
  11. It's probably an optimistic take (the title of the thread), but we can hope, I guess. My absolute favourite cinema era is the 1970s. If circumstances forced a change in mainstream cinema to head away from mega budget blockbusters I think we'd all benefit.
  12. Longer the better for me. If I really like a film, I love to watch a super long version with extra scenes and stuff. Every time. I get that a shorter theatrical cut might be the best thing to release in cinemas, or be the best way to watch first time, but if I've already seen the film and I like it, I want all 10 hours of it plz. A shorter director's cut? Fuck that.
  13. I never bothered with multiples of any sword. One silver, one steel, and repaired them every time I passed a blacksmith. I can't remember what level the first set becomes available, but there are various sets of Witcher gear that you can craft when you get recipes, and upgrade later when you get better recipes. Once I had the first one I just kept crafting / upgrading the next available set of witcher gear (inc silver and steel swords) as I levelled up, and never used any other kind of equipment.
  14. I must admit I didn't enjoy Grey Area either. The art was lovely though. I suppose 2000ad tends to specialise in oddballs or outcasts or weirdos as the stars of each strip (excluding the obvious main strip), and with Grey Area, they were essentially a bunch of space marines / prison guards. They weren't the outsiders, they were the agents of the establishment, so I wasn't rooting for them, or even caring about them at all.
