  1. 80 From the 80s - Ebook out NOW!

    I can't believe I missed this thread until now. I have read a couple of your essays this morning and I am completely in love with this project. This is exactly the kind of book I would love to own in print. Very impressed with your research and writing skills. Consider me a purchaser
  2. Maybe it's based on stock, like if they only have a handful of something left they'll reserve them for Prime members? Cutting off sales to like (guessing) 90% of their potential customers would not make sense. Edit: I massively underestimated how many Prime subscribers there are. That percentage is probably closer to 60-70%
  3. Another vote for RobotRon here (which as every true fan knows is the correct way to pronounce this game)
  4. Poor old Cuba Gooding. Must have thought he had the starring role, but it turns out to be quite a shallow representation of O.J. Other than the first couple of episodes we're only seeing 'angry OJ'. It is one of the weaker characters in a cast full of great actors. Bit of a shame really. I'm sure OJ must have had conflicting emotions, regret, sadness, but without anyone to confess to I guess we don't see him expressing any of that
  5. Well yes, at the end of the episode that's clear, but during that long shot my anticipation was that we were going to see something amazing. It was a huge technical shot that probably took hours and hours to choreograph and capture, and all we get is some forgettable guy with a lolly.
  6. I thought that at first too. But then I thought.. it's a lot of effort for them to just go 'whoops, wrong address'. What if instead Jimmy knows that the redirected property is empty, and he's planning to hijack the mail or something.. But yeah. Probably just planning to make them look silly. Anyone else notice the really long opening shot?Looked fantastically technical, (steadicam to crane back to steadicam, crane removed from shot)had some nice choreographyand I was waiting to see where it went .. but it pretty much fizzled out to 'man gets lollipop from box'
  7. Crashed and burned. I was feeling a little more optimistic about this weeks event, having spent a few hours practicing during the week (with the lower class cars, but still) First stage, puncture within about 30 seconds. Repaired. Second stage the wheel just fell off entirely midway round a corner. (I blame the mechanics). Third stage someone put a tree directly where I wanted to drive. So I'm out.
  8. Arcade Club (Bury, near Manchester)

    Just a heads up that this Easter weekend we're running '8BitFlip' at Arcade Club. We're adding a whole slew of machines (mainly pinball) onto the new second floor, where you'll also be able to get hands on with a brand new 'The Hobbit' pinball machine. There are competitions and things going on, and with everything available (including the Escape Rooms downstairs) it should make a good family day out. If you're local, and particularly if you enjoy pinball, come along and check it out. Tickets at 8bitflip.co.uk include entry to Arcade Club
  9. Steam

    Thumbs up for good find, but I wonder why they want your steam id? Could they manually be checking the region against each account I wonder? I plugged a fake name in there, so I'll see what happens... (Edit: Turns out I completely misunderstood what a steam id even is. Had to go through this: http://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/25786/how-can-i-find-my-steam-idto find it)
  10. Hopefully I just submitted a request to join the league Can someone explain the deal with the events? You have to complete all six stages without writing off your car (fair enough), but do you only get a single stab at it? I literally played this for 10 mins last night, so complete rookie here.
  11. I'm looking forward to joining you guys (particularly the slow guys) soon. Been waiting until I had a wheel before I play the game at all. Last week I placed a bid on eBay for a Logitech G29, and then days later Dixons/PC World announce a discounted price for them (£179 if anyone interested). Frustratingly my low ball bid is still winning on eBay, so I'm waiting for that to be outbid before unboxing
  12. House of Cards (US) - Netflix Series

    Steady on. It's been out for a few hours - and those of us with jobs won't be able to watch until the evening. Very much looking forward to it tonight though. The storyline took a huge dip last season, but the production values and acting were still classy as ever
  13. I was pretty negative about the first season of this. But three episodes into the new season and it's absolutely turned around for me. Loved every episode this season. My criticism of season one was that the episodes just felt like little vignettes without any over-arching structure between episodes. I was worried this trend was continuing when I watched the first new episode (the scene where they set up the stock broker), but there is definitely a cohesive story spanning the episodes now. And yep, can't wait for the next episode
  14. Steam

    By coincidence I have a Steam voucher for 75% off ValkyriaChronicles if anyone wants it ? I thought the store page did a particularly bad job of showing gameplay, but this helped:
  15. XCOM 2

    I had the same last night. Save game/reload fixed it. Not that I was cheating or anything
