    Assassin's Creed: Unity

    If anyone on here is going to download it for free, might I suggest you follow their suggestion of making a donation? I've made up the number in my head that I would've bought it for, were it on sale on Steam. There are lots of little crowdfunders but probably the best way to donate is by wire to the actual trust
  2. I'm really excited about what getting a new CPU architecture in consoles is going to mean for gaming. Jaguar, which powers both the Bone and PS4, is basically a laptop CPU. From a period of time when AMD was lagging behind Intel hugely, at that. Having an eight-core Ryzen 2 chip in there is going to be a ridiculous leap. Ray tracing I'm not so sold on, by comparison. Even the best PC graphics cards struggle to offer a good experience with ray traced graphics. In a year and a half's time, will the tech have advanced much? Plus there is the need to fit into the lower power / heat budget of a console too. Seems too early for it.

    Deserved one point from that, maybe zero.

    The most beautiful song you ever heard

    Have you not seen Annihilation? Anyway, tried not to think about this too much, this immediately came to mind: Rhubarb is a great pick too.

    It's out tomorrow, here's a thread where we can talk about it

    Yeah, I think we are basically betting on his pride. I don't doubt he still wants to okay regularly at the top level of European football. But he's clearly not going to do that for us. Bit disturbed by constant reports that Herrera is off, and the apparent acceptance of this by some fans. IMO he's our most consistent midfielder, and probably also the most flexible in terms of his position and role. Also until we sort out the right side of our attack and defence, he does a lot of thankless work down that side. Him leaving probably changes our situation from needing three players to maybe needing more like five.
  8. Wish I'd stayed for spider-man into the verse's post credits scenes - didn't know there were any, they sounded pretty great. I bet cinemas hate this trend though. Surely they want the people out ASAP, so they can send their minimum wage lackeys in to clean up, and get the next lot of punters in as quickly as possible.

    Bit of a puzzling one. Wolves were great, and probably have quite a good chance to go on and win the cup, but I don't think our attack every really clicked. Which is odd because it was the same XI that got so many goals during Solskjaer's initial great run. We attacked in a very samey way, with little interchanging of positions or destabilising movement - particularly Martial hugged the touchline too much. I think Wolves won the battle in midfield too, with only really Herrera having the mobility to match them. Maybe McTominay and / or Fred deserved to stay in the team given their recent performances?

    Great run from Shaw... good for the pride but surely too late to get back into this.

    I'm surprised they've overturned that... seemed a bit harsh but not an obvious error, exactly.

    De Gea might save both their goals with his feet. But that's hardly a criticism of Romero. They were both really good hits.

    Fucking hell, what a goal that is. That's probably the game.
  14. https://twitter.com/JamesGunn ^ he stopped tweeting completely after making his (imo very humble, genuine and empathetic) statement after being fired. Nice to see his latest tweet next to that. I don't give a shit one way or the other about the fate of the multi-billion dollar film franchise in question, but I like how James Gunn managed to find his own voice within that structure. As much as I like that we're seeing blockbuster films with greater diversity and representation these days, I would say his films probably did as much as any in Disney's juggernaut to help some viewers feel normal and valued. He chose to write characters who are genuinely troubled and flawed, in ways that are not simple or easily resolved, in a big space adventure film. He didn't need to do that. So this really does feel like justice. But before we congratulate Disney too much though, let's just remember that all they've done here is decide not to throw loads of money down the drain for no reason. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come - all it takes to generate a "scandal" online these days is enough willing idiots to participate in disingenous concern trolling. Bad news trending obviously will always made PR people jittery - but the level of noise does not tell you how serious the matter genuinely is. Without actually talking to real people, you cannot possibly tell the difference between groundswell of anger vs a particularly loud minority employing simple signal boosting tactics.
  15. Apparently they made the decision months ago. I guess the more time since his firing, the less it's in people's minds, so the smaller a news story it will be. I'm glad sense prevailed, anyway.
