    Rage Against The Machines first ever gig

    This is so fucking off the chain. Middle of the afternoon, audience of about 12, absolutely no lighting or stagecraft. Utterly fully formed, tight and incendiary performance.

    Hey guys, dunno if this'd work really, but I thought we could just have one random thread where we can all just comment on whatever movie we've just watched. just as an ongoing conversation. kinda like the 'what are you doing right now' thread in off topic. if its a bad idea i'm sure it'll just die off but i like talking about the films i've just watched but dont neccessarily wanna start a new thread for every film. Just watched 'In the valley of Elah' which is Paul Haggis' follow up to Crash as Director. A lot of people had a million criticisms with Crash's manipulative script, racial stereotyping and moral bludgeoning. personally I thought it was an unsubtle and flawed movie with some astounding moments, most notably Matt Dillons performance. However, the thought of Haggis tackling Iraq filled me with dread so I didnt go see this at the cinema. Having watched it now though i am seriously impressed. Tommy Lee jones is just sublime as the arrogant and driven Father of a soldier who has gone AWOL after returning from iraq. the story takes us on a journey into the hearts of men who are trained to kill without thought or remorse, who are then brought back into the fold on soil where they are supposed to behave in a completely different manner. It nails it for me. the soldiers are all terrifically apathetic and cold, Tommy lee is intolerable of human failings "i cant sit here and listen to you cry" and simply wants the truth, which is ultimately what he finds. Seriously recommended to anyone who like TLJ, conspiracy movies or war movies. Its shot beautifully and the script is solid gold. Only wish i'd caught it earlier.

    Battlefield V

    Details: No Season Pass Launch locations are France, Africa and Rottedam and North Africa desert Coop Mode called Combined Arms Single player War Stories return Fortifications are things like sand ags, trenches, tank stoppers. Only supports can build offensively defense fortifications such as machine guns, field cannons and are much faster at building everything. Predetermined areas to build such as at flags, can rebuild destroyed buildings Health bar is in stages, only regen up to closet stage not to 100 anymore Physical interactions - every action in the game requires a player interact for things like medkits, spotting, ammo, ledge grabbing (example: healing requires walking over to a health pack, character animation to pick it up, then start healing) No more HUD/map spotting, spotting is based on movement/changes around you Much less ammo on spawn, out of ammo after a few fights, but more ways to resupply ammo in the battlefield from packs, crates, or grabbing small amounts of ammo off of bodies (all requires physical interactions) Revive system has a full on animation, takes a few seconds to complete, no more revive trains, takes time to complete Ragdolls are server side, can now drag a downed player's body elsewhere Any class can do a squad revive, takes longer than a medic revive, does not give full health points Can call for help when down such as in the trailer Ragdolls (player bodies) effect the environment, push down grass etc. Gunplay completely changed No more visual recoil Each gun has a unique recoil pattern that can be learned and mastered Bipods easier to use and setup Bullet penetration through thin wood, sheet metal, walls Movement change, can now dive froward, backward, left and right similar to R6 Siege prone system Diving has a delay to prevent dolphin diving Crouch sprinting is in the game Can burst out of widows and commando roll, no destroying windows first Can catch, throwback or shoot grenades Less grenades because less ammo Can tow items in the game with vehicles such as previously stationary anti-air guns, teammate can use an anti-air gun while you tow it with a vehicle For example, can drive a tiger tank towing a field cannon behind it or a truck towing ammo crate to resupply teammates on the front line Destruction explodes inwards or outwards based on where the destruction happens. Throw a grenade inside of the building? The explosion sends things outside of it. Outside of it? Breaks inwards. Tank driving into a building slowly destroys a building, walls slowly crack/fall, not instant Heavily focused on squad play, instant placed in squad when joining a game New squad spawning system, squad deploy system that shows what squad mates are doing in third person in real time before the tactical map screen, so spawning on squad is kicker than spawning on tactical map screen Since squad spawning/deploying is faster than tactical map, squad wipes are serious Squads accumulate points that can be spent on "squad call-ins", only squad leader can spend them in Squad Call-ins are V1 or JB2 rockets as seen in the trailer, supply drops with ammo/health, a smoke barrage, heavy weapon pickups (not hero kits), squad only vehicles such as Churchill crocodile flamethrower tank or the Sturm tiger Elite classes are gone Behemoths are gone Large, non-fatal explosions can knock a player over Four classes are back: assault, medic, scout, support Create a solider, add them to a company of soldiers, then can customize things like gender, face look, face paint, outfit, accessories, etc. and assign them a class archtype Class archetypes highly customization Can be an assault that specializes in anti-tank or anti-infantry only, or a mix of both, etc. Highly specialized archetypes called exotics such as a recon paratrooper, stealthy short-range behind enemy lines person who uses a suppressed SMG and silent gadgets like pistols and garrotes comes with silent footsteps and throwing knives Can change and add specialization trees such as agility, flak armor, suppressive resistance The more you play a class more you get more specializations/archetypes within said class Same system for guns, pick a gun, level it up, unlock specializations and making gameplay choices in a skill tree on that gun Specializations are the only thing that affects how a gun plays or feels (ex: bipod) Five-seven elements to change on a gun to make it your own (stocks, sights, muzzles, chassis, skins, leaves on the front, cloth on back, straps, etc). Gameplay and visual customization is SEPARATE. Look of weapon is just visual without impacting gameplay, specialization is what determines how the gun plays/feels. Same system for vehicles and planes Asymmetric vehicles for teams, (ex: one team might get a big slow tank that does lot of damage, other team gets a small fast tank that does light damage) Grand Operations gamemode, each day is a full match, always advance to the next day GOs have different objectives per day Success or failure in GO days have visual and gameplay impact Day 4 only has a chance to happen if there isn't a clear winner from previous days Day 4 is last stand, limited ammo, no respawns, whoever lives to the end wins Coop mode, combined arms with a dynamic mission creator/AI that sits between SP/MP as a creative sandbox Soldiers created for a company can be used in both coop and MP, parity No news on suppression yet, uncertain if in game All logic in game is server side, not client side so changes to systems do not require a patch Promises of more communication between devs and community, roadmaps, etc. New content is called Tides of war, daily/weekly/monthly challenges with overarching chapters and questlines that give you "unique items and cosmetics" Tides of War gives new maps, game modes, limited time experiences Variety of maps with different tones such as complete crushing battlefield chaos or more slow space large maps with tempo that goes up and down Gamemodes confirmed: Grand Operations, Conquest, TDM, Domination No news on RSP The Shhhh animation from the trailer is possible to experience in game Transport vehicles are alive on the map and can jump into them Combat vehicles spawn from tactical deployment map Biggest changes summed up: lack of auto regen health, limited ammo, building fortifications, phyiscal interactions for everything, skill-based gunplay, squad revives, massive emphasis on squad play and team play, 3d spotting changes, minimal HUD.

    its such a huge question. If he's satisfied and now goes on to have the moves like jagger and becomes xenu and lives forever then that fucks the rest of us so hard. Whereas if 3 years from now he says "ya know what? nothings changed. I still feel empty" then maybe we can all just down tools and stop being such pricks to each other and take a moment to breathe out. I can't help but think that if he'd done this 2,000 years ago, with the right publicist, the world would be a very different place right now.

    Battlefield V

    One of the most enjoyable and memorable nights of Battlefield ever. So so so much fun. I think there were 13 of us at one point...? I love my rllmuk battlefield family. Man I wish @Dave White was with us last night. I grabbed some videos because it was such a sweet sesh. What killed me here?

    Its some of the greatest photography in the history of human kind. And to think it was shot by his friends who were expecting at any second to see their friend die. It's almost beyond comprehension.

    PlayStation VR

    I just never get bored of Beat Saber. I only play 2 rounds after work, but every day heading home from work I get buzzed that I'm about to play it. I just want some classic tunes on there.

    I lost my shit during that puke scene the first time in the cinema and literally couldn't recover for abut 5 minutes. Proper side splitting snotty nosed stuff. This one is a lot more dry than outright hilarious, but it's still perfectly judged and absolutely slayed me in the cinema: And for such a terrible film, Sam Raimis Crimewave is filled to the brim with amazing comic timing, including this wonderful bit of Bruce Campbell Brucing to the max

    Battlefield V

    BF has such a sleep learning curve and requires so much concentration. Other games can be played in 2nd gear. Although that being said, I've played so much BF that it is almost meditative for me.

    After Life - Ricky Gervais

    Ugh 2 minutes in and I already fucking hate it. Gervais's dead wife saying essentially "you're annoying but you've got a good heart". Thats such a fucking manipulative Gervais device. "Well I didn't say it, she did". he's such a fucking narcissist. He's been doing this for years. Writing characters that love him despite his obvious flaws. Off you fuck Ricky. Not watching.

    Yeah that was the reissue cover. The original was all the wanderers draped over the car during the game of 'elbow tit'. It was very American graffiti. I think they toughened up the re-release to tap into the gangster renaissance. It straddles those two worlds in a way I've not seen before. It's a very unique movie.

    The Rllmuk Metal Thread Part 2

    Made a playlist of my fave metal albums of the last 2 years. I tend to like stuff with a prog bent and clean vocals. So stuff like BTBaM, architects, black peaks etc. But some obscure stuff on there I haven't seen mentioned in here

    Battlefield V

    That was the best session we've had yet and the game just keeps going from strength to strength for me. It was just a tight unit absolute steamrolling good players using communication. I'm dying to get back on tonight.

    Awesome fucking write up man, of one of my faves. It's packed to the gills with content and tonally schizophrenic. Much of it doesn't work, but the melancholy end of an era stuff you identified is really powerful. It makes me nostalgic for a time and a place that I never experienced and likely never even existed. Those ducky boys though. Proper chills
