  1. Excellent, thanks very much. Presumably for headphone use you connect your headphones through the vacant USB port on the phone? I'm new to all this - any recommendations for which emulator is the most stable?
  2. Hiya chaps, does anyone here have any experience of buying and using an Android gamepad/controller? Going to be doing a lot of long flights in the next fortnight and looking to turn my new Poco F3 (Android 12) into a game playing device. Looked at the Razer Kishi and a few others, but nothing perfect seems out there. The big drawback from the research I've done is because the phone doesn't have a headphone jack, and the controller would plug in through the USB3, you're only left with connecting audio via Bluetooth. Which again, people are reporting audio delays. Anyone have suggestions/recommendations from personal experience the best route to go down?
  3. A real tricky one that's for sure, but for me: 1) The Wire 2) Chernobyl 3) The Shield 4) Breaking Bad 5) Better Call Saul 6) Line of Duty 7) Mr Inbetween 8 )Game of Thrones 9) Band of Brothers 10) The Witcher 11) Mindhunter 12) The Pacific 13) Fargo 14) Black Mirror 15) Unbelievable 16) The Thick of It 17) Peep Show 18) The Detectorists 19) Boardwalk Empire 20) Severance I'm currently watching a few other potentials to go on here (The Expanse being one) but as I'm not even through Season 1 at the moment I will leave it like this.
  4. Playing 5-player Twilight Imperium with the new expansion on Sunday. 9.30am kick off, expected end of 7/8pm. Factions to be picked on the day. Only played base game once before (with Ghosts of Creuss - so quite a non-vanilla faction) so very much looking forward to it. Potential picture-based game report to come.
  5. I'm about to start this, never played before but giving the 5 hour trial a go and if like will just pay the PS5 £20 price. Quick question - I assume there are difficulty levels, which one would you recommend? I like a good challenge and often find Normal difficulty in games these days is too easy and so it loses my attention by mid/end.
  6. Another devotee to the church here. I haven't quite finished it - a few episodes of S3 left, but burned through the whole lot in the past 10 days. It's just brilliant. Far and away surpassed all my expectations. It's one of those shows that is incredibly hard to follow up with any other drama, annoyingly (any suggestions for when I'm done?).
  7. Me and the other half are obsessed with these. We've probably tried all the "healthy-ish" snack bars and these are by far the best. Quite chocolatey, soft inside (not hard like others) and a good size. Seem to always be £1 in Asda and Tesco, would recommend. Be aware they also do a "Fibre" one which is packaged dangerously similar (we've accidentally bought it a few times!) which is less nice and you only get 4 bars per pack.
  8. Those who have played Jaws of the Lion solo - did you play it with 2 characters or 4?
  9. Always great to see this thread "up there" on the Discussion forum. This was one of my favourite and memorable single-player experiences of the last generation, such a shame it wasn't more successful - it really deserved to be. With my gaming backlog I doubt I'll get around to a second playthrough but if there's ever a re-release I wouldn't hesitate jumping in.
  10. The Witcher S2 - 9/10 Bloody excellent stuff. Only downside is it is only 8 episodes long. On par with S1 for us. PS for anyone who has seen this, recommend the Netflix mini "Witcher - Bestiary" episodes - two of em at 10mins apiece. Sex Education S3 - 7/10 It was fine and very watchable. Just felt it was a tad predictable and the writing a little flat. Still enjoyed it regardless and it didn't outstay its welcome.
  11. Had some very amusing games of Cockroach Poker Royal, Anomia and Just One tonight with friends we don't see very often. They loved the first two, and promptly bought a copy of each online as we left! I had also brought Quacks (w/Herb Witches expansion) and Sheriff of Nottingham neither of which sadly made it to the table - next time...
  12. Did AVGN ever open up as to why Bootsy left? I know it doesn't strictly matter now but just thought of it when I saw this thread pop up. I'm currently on an AVGN binge during lunches. On Season 5 at the moment, most of his earlier videos stand up really well today I must say.
  13. I'm playing Twilight Imperium (4E) - 4 player in a couple of weeks - my first time...any tips? The other guys I'm playing with have played at least once before so after a leg up! Suffice to say I'm cramming up on rules videos, but any general gameplay tips or factions etc?
  14. Sadly for a casual PC gamer like myself, the digital version is quite the specs hog. My relatively modestly powered laptop falls short on the GFX minimum specs, sadly.
  15. Mini bump before I brave listing these on Facebook / BGG
  16. BAP would be back in some form if EA allowed some sort of Online Team Play with real players option again. I know the league might have waned anyway for numbers, but that was the true nail in the coffin.
  17. Hello gents, selling a few games that will go towards Wedding fund for next year. Will pop this in the main trades sub-forum too. All prices include delivery w/Hermes, payment via PayPal. All are in great (or better) condition! Links point to BGG pages. Any Qs hit me up Captain Sonar - £22 Burgle Bros - £28 Welcome To (German language but is language indepedent, includes English printed rules inside) - £12 Deception: Murder in Hong Kong (in shrink) - £22 Harvest Dice - £10 Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle - £25 Gloria Picktoria (in shrink) - £8
  18. Jaipur, Stone Age, Targi and Patchwork are all big favourites at 2 player with me and my relatively non-game playing g/f
  19. Amazingly we persevered until the end, desperately trying to find when it got good. It never did. It was as if the story writers took a holiday and drafted in some work experience to write it. 4/10 is being generous. Watched the Trailer for S3 and it doesn't look like it gets any better. Officially binned off now.
  20. @Dudley I'm literally on the earlier part of that mission and it is a bit of a Krogan hell hole. I'm saving after every enemy encounter.
  21. Playing this on Insanity and having an absolute blast. Difficulty is just right - challenging but not unfair (yet). ME1 does show its age in place but some of the missions and set ups hold up extremely well. Loving it.
  22. Amazingly, Stone Age. Waiting for a reprint, it's been rumoured for a whie...
  23. I'm PS5-ing (when some retailer has one in stock for longer than a nanosecond) and gonna get FIFA, so count me in at some point. Save me a space in wide midfield for a washed up pro searching for his final paycheck.
