  1. 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? 

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?).

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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. 

  8. 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...

  9. 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.

    I got three episodes into S2 and gave up after loving s1. 

    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.
