  1. I just tried streaming Absolute 90s (don't start...) for the first time, and, having given them some info to apparently give me fewer but tailored ads, was shown a video plug for a lovely Iron Man themed Galaxy S6 phone (discontinued 2016). Apparently Avengers: Age of Ultron is "Now Playing", get yourselves down the cinema ASAP!

    Steam

    Started with a big one! I think I was mainly after Left 4 Dead at the time, and thought I'd catch up on all the other cool Valve stuff I'd been missing. I still have yet to play Episode II . And Ricochet.

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    I've pre-ordered Welcome To...*, I think that may be my first non-Kickstarter board pre-order! Something excited me about the whole Roll (Flip) and Write concept, not got anything like that in my extensive collection. I might get Ganz Schön Clever (disappointing attempt to pronounce that on the SUSD review) too, I think actual dice might enhance the experience, and I love the Germans. * I can't believe it's actually called that, it sounds bizarre when you say it, and the box says "Welcome to your perfect home", which is a much better name.

    Bargain buys for everyone.

    Robo Rally - so good* you listed it twice! *Actually true

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Yes! And the slightly delay on the unprecedented second sabre blade igniting. And I also like the way he casually force pushes some debris to open the door behind.
  7. Also very interested in this question! I grudgingly got some enjoyment out of episode 3 (with the hangman games), but collectively the three editions of My Struggle I've seen may be the worst television I've ever watched in my life.

    Saw Raiders of the Lost Ark on Thursday in a performance with a live symphony orchestra playing the soundtrack, truly excellent. The film being discussed on here recently got me extra hyped! I think I must have seen it 10s of times when I was little, then had a break of a couple of decades, it was quite a nostalgia fest.

  11. Jesus, the game's hard enough (I don't think I've ever got to the fifth level), and then there are so many ways of making it even harder! Never even heard of that rainbow mode, I think I'd die on the first floor.

    HunkulesHercules has some serious divergence from the Real MythsTM (probably quite a wise move to make his parentage a bit more ... traditional, if you can say that about a god...), but is fantastic for all the reasons you mention. Love the songs, the songbook is currently sitting on my piano! The bit right at the end where gives me goosebumps.
  13. You're probably right. I think actually I'd be a bit happier if the early rooms were a bit harder, I begrudge having to take a while to work through them (obviously you need to clear the whole map for completeness) despite the initial lack of challenge (a few RNG spikes aside). And, of course, I suffer from extreme Videogame Inventory Hoarding Syndrome, I won't use anything but the starting gun unless it's a boss, Just In Case .
  14. I'd quite like a way to practice bosses, I find the skills you need for them are so different from the gungeon rooms leading up to them (apart from maybe a handful of bullet-hellish configurations) that it's hard to make the mental leap and I often get destroyed even if on a good day things go a lot better.
