  1. Anyone playing this at the moment - there's an interesting event going on in Imperial Space 4 starports have been attacked and are on fire - requesting supplies and/or evacuations. I know a few of you are Imperial allied so it's probably quite near your locations. It's just a nice different task to do if you're bored and it's intense flying into a burning station. Kit your ship with passenger accommodation and heatsinks and there are some quick bucks to earn - especially Empire reputation. I managed to rinse an entire Promotion (from Lord -> Viscount) in about an hou
  2. Returning to this after a couple of years - removed the dust covers off my trusty Python - still got 134m credits in the bank. Seems I took my furlough in the Basuseku systems so I'm in the heart of the RLL Mukhang Symposium territory so gonna start picking up some missions for them again. ...and yeah - I need to remember how to dock again too.

    Fall Guys

    Downloaded this yesterday on the recommendation of my 12 year old (he was watching live streamers before I even knew this game existed). The great thing about this is it's almost as much fun to watch as it is to play - and with games lasting only about 10mins max it's fun alternating between me and my son even when i'm supposed to be *cough* working from home!! I've got a real blind spot on this one and can't ever seem to complete it. Keep falling off those 2 logs / balance beams!! I did get my first win on Hex-a-Gone last night though which felt good.
  5. @moosegrinder I'm by no means an expert at this, and it depends what level you're playing it on as I was getting my arse kicked on anything above Normal but my tips would be: - start small and don't go exploring beyond the perimeter of the immediate area you want to grow your town in - work towards getting a barracks as soon as possible and start churning out rangers. - build watchtowers at the perimeter of your base and again, slowly start expanding these (destroying them gives you 50% resources back and increases as you add more research points) - only really start explor
  6. So I bought this blind yesterday - to be honest I was already sold at the Zombies, RTS & Tower Defense description. Tough learning curve - as mentioned, no tutorials so it really is trial and error and it can all go devastatingly wrong within seconds - don't think I've lasted more than 7/8 days so far. Not being able to go back to earlier saves adds a lot of tension and risk to everything. Being able to pause and plan really helps even if just to explore the UI / menu system. Very early days, but I think I'm enjoying it so far.
  7. Well, after 27 hours I just completed this with only 60% completion i thought I’d be a bit higher than that must have missed a lot. The only areas I know I couldn’t reach were ... Eventually found a nice charm combo which meant I did the final boss on only my second attempt Fantastic game - love a Metroidvania game, but was a little daunted by the twitchy / quick reactions I needed in my old bones to navigate some areas initially. Glad I persisted
  8. Same - other than I recently finished Book 8, having rinsed all the books since January. I'm at a complete loss now until the next one is released in the autumn. Slowly catching up on the TV show to tide me over until then!
  9. It's been over a year since I docked my ship at Daedalus station in the Sol system. Not sure why I left it behind - but dusting off the Python and taking it out for a spin felt good. Took a while to get used to the controls again but the muscle memory kicked in and it was soon second nature. So, what have I missed? Is Mukhang still a going concern? Is it worth heading back there and checking out the Symposium? Do we have any other systems under our influence?
  10. The one thing I noticed in the show that I liked was that there was a noticeable suspicion between all the characters when they first get on the 'Knight' to investigate the asteroid - as if they didn't know each other very well. Very much 'The Belter', 'The Martian', 'The Earther' - who are all essentially on different sides of the war/peace in the system. I didn't feel this in the books as the narrative suggested that, although they didn't know much about each other they'd all been working together on the 'Cant' for so long.
  11. I only started listening to the books about 2 months ago. Halfway through the first book thinking "this would make a great TV Series" I then found out it was already a great TV series (currently halfway through season 2, just starting book 4). Anyway I've been really pleased with how the characters in the books have been portrayed in the show - I may have a different idea on how the characters look but the characterisation is pretty spot on (to me). Possible spoilers - how I see the characters between books and show

    I use Adobe ProCreate - not sure if its the best, but it's the one they have on all the iPad Pros in the Apple Store - which convinced me I needed one, and an Apple Pencil. Not sure it will teach you to draw, but it is a much more forgiving process than trying the real thing - supporting layers, undo etc which gives me the confidence to try different things rather than fearing the next stroke is going to ruin my work (I think that's a common feature of the artistic temperament though). Here's one I finished today - something I'm doing for my Mum & Dad's 50th wedding

    Was playing with my new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil over Christmas....... What an amazing piece of kit - drew this picture of my wife. Took approximately 9hrs to complete Drawn using Adobe Procreate. So pleased with how it came out - have started one of my son so will post that one soon
  14. It's fascinating how everyone seems to be in exactly the same place with this show this season. Previous seasons have had staunch fans, waverers and abandoners of varying degrees but suddenly it's like we've all fallen off the same cliff at the same time. My problem, other than the terminally dull and poorly written / filmed episodes is that - i think on paper this season must have all sounded so great to the show runners. "Let's film it all on the same day from everyone's different views!" Shootouts, car chases, explosions - peril, death, treachery!!
