    The Deuce - HBO & David Simon do 70's porn.

    Ultimately I think season 1 was absolutely stellar but so far season 2 hasn’t hit those heights. It’s still captivating but I’m not as invested in the characters as much anymore.

    I would guess DC vs Lesnar is way, way down the road if he’s taking this now, especially with the spectre of Jon Jones looming again.

    McGregor has not pressed charges. Khabib explained himself at the press conference. Basically said don’t talk shit about his father, religion etc. Nonetheless his future is a bit up in the air. Him not having the belt would benefit the UFC but then again, making a fight against GSP would do quite the PPV numbers.

    No chance. The bloke that sucker punched McGregor looks like he may well be a UFC fighter. It’s already been clearly stated that he’ll never fight in the organisation again if so. Khabib could have visa problems for future fights in the USA and if he gets a lengthy suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission he will be stripped of his title. I’m confident all that isn’t in the script.

    The worst thing for McGregor is he got knocked down from a punch. Not something you typically see from Khabib. Bit embarrassing really although he was straight back up. The press conference should be ‘interesting’.

    Rematch would be pointless. I presume GSP will be interested instead. There has to be repercussions for the near riot in the aftermath though.
  7. Season 2 is all about Wendy. She’s adapted much better to the situation than Marty and she’s a very different person now. Laura Linney absolutely stole the show for me. Comparing Ozark to Breaking Bad is probably not ideal but she’s definitely veered off into something resembling Walter White. Jason Bateman as Marty does a great job as someone who eventually just gets too far out of his comfort zone. Well, the facade of a comfort zone that only a one way relationship with a Mexican drug cartel can bring.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Kudos for the ‘Quality’ and ‘Performance’ settings that are available. 1080p 60fps is vastly superior to the driving in treacle 4K 30fps option. Even on my 4K Samsung tv. More devs need to realise that 60 fps is far better than increased resolution. Obviously 4K 60fps would be preferable but understandably that’s a big ask on current consoles.

    Hard reboot? (Hold the power button on the console for 10 seconds or so)

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    No, not in the preview programme. I’ve had two standard Xbox Ones and a X. All have been temperamental and glitchy in regard to the OS.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Available now. Well, the game pass link for the game on the console would not function for me at all but when you look for it on the store you get an install option. Everytime I use my X it blows my mind how broken the OS is. The amount of times I need to do a reboot is mad. It’s Microsoft’s OS on their own hardware yet it still is janky!

    What a joke. My recording got as far as the Lima fight. The lack of stoppage in the Pico fight was shocking. The other bloke took way too much punishment. Bad, bad refereeing.

    If Khabib does his usual and just tries to walk through his opponents punches he’ll be unconscious in the first round. He does have all the tools though to cause major problems for Conor if he uses the right game plan.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Thought this was really good. Probably the best of this new generation of Star Wars movies. I’d love to see a trilogy of Solo movies rather than what Rian Johnson has in store (I immensely disliked The Last Jedi). For a movie that had a troubled making it didn’t feel disjointed.

    Playerunknown's Battlegrounds - Add your tag to the list in the OP

    The difference between this now on Xbox One X from what I originally played at launch is staggering. Graphically it’s miles better and the frame rate, although way too low at 30fps, seems really stable.

    Destiny 2: Forsaken. No raid spoilers please.

    PC version seems fine.
  17. Black Cat Supremacist

    Steam

    I’ve followed SCUM for a while but in the end I never bought it as the survival element just seemed a bit too hardcore. Having watched it on Twitch I’d presume it would melt my 1050 ti as well as visually it looks pretty spectacular.

    Sharp Objects

    What an ending. Really well done and unbelievably tense. There’s a final scene mid credits as well. You could certainly discuss the logic behind a characters motive but that makes the whole thing all the more interesting. Hopefully this gets a bit of recognition during awards season. Amy Adams is absolutely stellar.

    Sharp Objects

    I love anything that’s a little bit disjointed and incoherent. Sharp Objects certainly feels like that in the earlier episodes until you put it all together. I’m a sucker for that whole Southern USA locale in which everyone seems to be operating at 25% due to the heat and humidity. I’ve found it all mesmerising as the whole town seems to give an ‘off’ vibe. I’m absolutely fine with the reveal as it certainly fits in with what has gone before.

    Better Call Saul!

    BCS is really overrated. It’s nowhere near as good as Breaking Bad. It’s far too low key for its own good all too often. There are some decent ideas being dragged out over far too many seasons. I’ll watch every week for sure but it’s incredibly boring at times.

    Sharp Objects

    Sensational show. The dark, brooding atmosphere just drips from the screen.

    No Man's Sky - PC Version Tech Chat

    1050ti, i5-7400 and 8gb of DDR4 ram. Recommended settings are all high / medium with vsync on and a 30 fps lock. Turning vsync & the fps lock off and turning as much down as possible makes it still mostly 30ish fps, occassionally getting into the 40's, with the odd departure into the 50's. Impressed I am not. I've never used the 2 hour window on Steam for a refund but I'm considering it. I can run the spectacularly unoptimized PUBG at 60fps no problem so it's not clear why No Man's Sky has such a low frame rate. It's not exactly the most graphically intense game after all.
  23. Black Cat Supremacist

    No Man's Sky

    Really disappointed with the frame rate in this on PC. It’s all over the place. Mainly in the 30’s with random jumps into the 40’s. Very rarely gets into the 50’s. Not smooth to play at all.

    Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    Good move, should help with the UFC’s dwindling popularity in the UK. It’s presumably relevant to mention the declining viewing numbers in the USA as well. They have no clue whatsoever beyond waiting for Lesnar and McGregor to give them a ppv boost.

    The Handmaids Tale - Season 2 Hulu/Sunday Night C4

    I’m still at CH4 pace and finding it all really tedious. The obvious question is why am I still watching I suppose. There is too much ‘slow burn’ with tv shows these days. The TV companies have got carried away trying to stretch things out.
