  1. Watch it, watch it all. then watch it again, it's even better seconde time around.
  2. Really enjoyed this, thanks for the recommendation! Completely compelling, suprisingly emotional and pretty damn tense in places. I found the sudden cuts jarring initially and felt like I was missing out on scenes i would have liked to have seen finished. In the end I came round to it as a really effective technique. I went back and watched the Magician afterwards, Ill be honest it just feels like a Pilot for the show. It was ok but a step down from the series.
  3. I've just done the same , and second this sentiment. I have memories from the first time around like not enjoying the first couple of episodes as much, or finding series 4 less interesting. But binging the whole lot again all in one go has been bloody amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it. Im just really sad it's almost over!
  4. I've watched this twice now. I've cut down my rambling thoughts on this a bit but Ill still spoil it for ... spoilers and for length.
  5. I presume these are getting snapped up because people think they can sell them later for a profit ?
  6. Well Ive decided to start over and watch the whole thing so a recap episode when we only have 6 would be a bit dissapointing.
  7. I really struggled to watch this. It just never grabbed me, I found my attention wandering half way through every episode. Im not suprised it bombed. But I am saddened by it. I'm not sure quite what it is that didnt engage with me, I enjoyed the anime. Is it the writting ? Or the feeling like im watching a less good version of the anime?
  8. The only problem with coming to such influencial sci fi late is that it sometimes seems derivitave because youve read all the stuff that borrowed from it first
  9. Just checked it is for rent on prime home premier now for £15.99
  10. 6th of December for premium streaming! 🥳 https://entertainment.ie/movies/movie-news/dune-stream-from-home-504184/
  11. Not having the market for this length of time is crippling. Everyone is maxing out their storage , it leaves you unable to do anything. Some guy just game me 1000 iron ingots for free just to clear space.
  12. Robo Recall is also rather ace, and uses teleporting movement.
  13. There is no Antimemetics Division is legitimatley excellent, didn't we already discuss that ? I forget ...
  14. Thought this was weak. Boring, bad CGI , unintresting characters and shite ending. It wasn't all bad but the good bits were fleeting. And almost everything that happened was either stupid or unsatisfying in some way. 2/5
  15. The auction house was already screwed. Maybe if people had 300k gold some of my stuff would finally sell 😛
  16. If they gave Alien Isolation the same treatment they gave Resident Evil on the quest Id be a very happy camper , well a very terrified one. As Craola says you need that slick VR implementation , UI, inventory , hand interaction etc to make it work.
  17. They changed it to a subscription model, but the old users kept all their content and didnt have to subscribe. I think if you get it now its subscription for everyone , but its free to download and try.
  18. Is the Mia stuff the bad bit ? Its .... well Im sure you know what the issue I have with it is.
  19. Im reading the Dark Tower again. I'd almost forgotten how much i love it because I was put off by the last couple of books. Im up to the Wolves Of The Calla and have been enjoying the hell out of it. I totally forgot about wind through the keyhole as well, so i might read that next. So you have at least 6 really great books. Im kind of looking forward to reading the last two as well, but we will see. I have a sort of hankering to edit out the stuff I dont like and do a fan fiction version. Does anyone know if this has been done ?
  20. Im not saying the original idea was good, that whole Ark / Rust type game are a shit show in pvp. Im glad they changed from that, and theyve struck on something really good in theory, (all the bugs aside) that with a bit of tweaking could be really something special I think. Of course that all relies on them being able to fix all of the current crap thats going on which im not convinced they will be able to. In the meantime I will potter along enjoying myself
  21. Dr Shark summed it up pretty well. It boils down basically to it being like a single player game with other people around. Why you would try and put a Skyrim style story into an MMO is beyond me. How can every single person you meet be THE hero saving the world. In the case of New World , you have the soul wardens for example. Now if the soul wardens were a faction I could run missions for I would find it much more believable. Work your way up the ranks but perhaps not do that thing where everyone ends up as "king" rank of the same faction 😛 A bunch of the missions are even you "uniting the factions" to fight against the corrupted, all the while at complete odds with this the PvP side of the game where the factions are eternally at war carries on. How that got passed the design phase I will never know.
  22. And doomed us to decades of themepark MMOs Im so happy that New World has embraced sanbox mechanics , except for the tedious themepark bit they bolted on presumably to cater to the WOW players. I hope they resolve the problems and make a success out of it, but only time will tell. Ideally Id like to see them move away from themepark content entirely in the future and move to dynamic NPC factions etc as well.
  23. I think the point is that in many casess it isnt...
  24. The game def has issues. I've been very lucky I think playing it, I have never queued to get in the game. Never crashed and have had very few bugs affect me. However I have seen and heard of several pretty major problems, and if it turns out that large portions off the game are client authoritative as people are suggesting they are going to be VERY tough to fix. Someone posted a weight glitch yesterday where you swap your bags around in their slots and any perks you have start to stack letting you have weightless wood, or iron etc. I tried it and it def works. This indicates to be that the inventory weight at least is at least in terms of the weight / perk calculations almost totally client side. This is REALLY bad. After a while of stacking weight my character started jigging between running and walking and fast travel stopped working, which juggests it is chekcing in with the server at least at some point, I dont know if this is the point I would have become encumbered , I dont think so, it may be the point my charcter would have been too encumbered to move at all. We also had a rival faction push pretty hard over the weekend to take control. They did it quite late at night with a large group and we couldnt muster the troops to counter , which was frustrating on its own. However after putting in hours of work on three regions they bugged out and the enemies couldnt declare war. Great news for us, but I can only imagine how frustrating it would be for them. Im pottering around levelling up and really enjoying myself. But I have no idea whats going to happen....
  25. Standing with full motion controls , its very good.
