  1. As the primary player I have to trigger the tasks. For example, after helping Nook I was give the task of placing the museum tent -then my kids and I get to share the task of collecting the bits the museum owner needs to upgrade the museum. The local play is OK. You just have to share being in 'control' wisely, I suppose it's teaching the joys of collaboration and team work.
  2. That was terrible. Really fucking terrible. Pew pew pew!
  3. What's my name? Garmadon Say it again! Garmadon Harmonize my name nerds Garmadon Ha ha ha ha Garmadon Dominate! Garmadon Garmadon Garmadon Garmadon Oh yeah When darkness falls across your town And the big bad monsters come around When skeletons rise up from the ground It's Garmadon! You feel the fear creep in your bones You feel the earth shake in your toes You pee your pants and you run back home It's Garmadon! Tell them my name nerds!! (I'm 15 minutes into the finale! I'll catch up with the thread later. )
  4. I'd save this episode for a Picard binge next week. Did Roddenbury die with the combination to the safe that held all the short science fiction stories they have collected over the years? This whole series was very poor. And I'm not having that whole bollocks about first season of Trek always being shit. After the upturn in TV quality since The Wire and Breaking Bad there's no fucking excuse.
  5. It was just so boring. My brain switched off as soon as the Captain had the reaction to seeing Soji and realised they were going to string it out over the whole episode. The seven scenes looked out of place. They looked as if they were shoehorned in at the last minute after securing a better contract for Jeri Ryan and realised, no matter how good the Hugh actor was the Romulan ninja didn't have the warrior screen presence of Worf.
  6. That was the best Trek I've seen in years. It pressed all the buttons. A fan edit to tighten up and remove the chaff from the episodes leading up to this one would be amazing. It put me in mind of Kirk, Spock and McCoy round the campfire at the start of the Final Frontier. A lot of warmth.
  7. Very true. I don't like to think about the planning of Discovery. I feel it closed a lot of doors when they decided it should be set 10 years before the TOS.
  8. If they'd set Discovery during the same timeframe as Picard this story would have a made a great guest star filled 3 part crossover event. It really feels like a three part story spread over too many episodes. And there are still four more to go.
  9. The themes of the show are interesting, the problem for me is that it's just not very well written. Changing the characters in an unrealistic way to suit the situation is a pure EastEnders move.
  10. That's why the five year missions were bearable, they ensured the crew were all high level functioning alcoholics/drug addicts. That's why all the logs were so fantastical. It's believed Janeway was in the K-Hole for 6 odd years, leading to the 70 years away from Federation space issue whilst Voyager was on a shake down run through the Akkadese Maelstrom.
  11. I hear that the first three episodes are 'pilot like' which I think means a lot of world building and fluff to please the suits. Could hit its stride In episode 4.
  12. I find modern space scenes far too busy, all the things zooming about puts me right of my Earl Grey. All of the satellites turning on Mars looked especially silly. It seems Starfleet has had enough of their Captains doing their own thing far away in deep space. At least Picard was polite enough to ask for a ship, I'm sure Kirk just nicked one in one of the TOS movies. Good episode. My body was far too tense with the prospect of cameos though, I really thought Geordie was going to be on Mars. Jeri Ryan better not be a one and done as I find the all the Borg stuff fantastic.
  13. Fuck you and your great big spaceships floating in planetary atmospheres rising from the sea Abrams. Taking all the space out of space operas since 2009. The film had Stormtroopers using speeders that had fucking wheels. Fucking wheels. This trilogy has treated us like morons. George Lucas built a GALAXY with character and a fair amount of consistency over the space of 6 films. Disney let their writers and directors shit all over that by allowing them to fling whatever they thought would be 'cool' onto film. What a waste. The cast deserved better. The Skywalker saga turned into a load of old bollocks. The stories of Anakin, Luke and Leia deserved better endings than this trilogy provides. R2-D2 and C3PO were wasted as well. They should have been used as a thread to bind all of the films together.
  14. Pearl Jam - Alive. MTV Unplugged session. Wow.

    https://streamja.com/XNGX It's a beautiful thing. As someone put it on Reddit 'that wasn't a goal, it was murder'
  16. An A-Team style 24 episode season would have been amazing. Especially if they were nearly an hour long each. The show at the moment just seems like a great movie spread over 4 hours or so.
  17. Wonder Boy. Getting the skateboard and skating through the second level can't be beat. It's my warm up game before cracking on with a retro gaming afternoon.

    Whoops, I read the post I quoted wrong. The problem I have with M30 6 Button Genesis 8BitDo pad is that the Switches L & R buttons are mapped to Z & C. So hopping and sliding are mapped to the face buttons in Super Mario Kart instead of the shoulders. I'd still appreciate emails being sent to 8BitDo for a firmware update.

    Send an email to the 8BitDo support people. I've sent one about the M30 pad having the same problem. Thankfully Super Mario World isn't affected so I can still play the best platformer with the best D-Pad whilst they work on a firmware.
