  1. Other than the original game, Origins is the only other Assassins Creed game I have 100% completed from start to finish and all the DLC. Absolutely stonking game and both DLCs, especially Curse of the Pharaoh's, are worth your time. I am currently working through Odyssey and loving the travel between islands and the lovely sun drenched locations.

    I used to have a series 7 VHS which didn't have the laugh track on it, think it was an extended cut of three episodes. I remember watching it and being utterly confused by the lack of laughter. It did kind of take away some of the humor at the time for me.
  3. Start watching the final season of Clone Wars only to get a green screen with the sound playing in the background All seasons of the Simpsons though, cant wait to run through them with my daughter.
  4. Trying to get the app working on my little upstairs Samsung TV but it keeps crapping out everytime I try and load it. Edit: Working, good old power off/on
  5. Such a missed opportunity with no Silent Hills games this gen. Konami are absolutely clueless.
  6. In the theme of Thundercats "Console wars are on the loose console console warz"
  7. I would imagine all Sony owned games would be B/C at launch, it will be the third party stuff that will take the time.
  8. I can see Xbox taking the power advantage here, they have been crowing about it long enough. Will be interesting to see if they still go ahead with the cheaper/weaker machine as well (if it's still happening). Either way my eyes are shit and I will not be able to detect any major difference in visuals between Xbox/PS5 anyway.
  9. Holy shit, because of this I'm going to bed with the wife at the same time for once. She's shocked!
  10. Xbox Live down for anyone else tonight? Signed in but won't connect to Live. Most games I try are pushing me to play offline, but apps like Netflix working fine, must be Coronavirus. Edit - curent network status states issues with Live Core Services etc. Maybe a lot of people online?

    The option I get is to "hide" them, which looks like it only removes them from your friends lists.
  12. Discovery set the bar for how established canon was going to be treated so it really is no surprise at how loose it seems on Picard. I am eager to see how they depict the Klingon look in this era. Imagine Worf looking like a Discovery Klingon and the fan uproar. I have to imagine they will go with the Worf we are so used to seeing (that's if we even see Klingons at all in this series).

    Xbox Game Pass

    Gave Shadow Warrior 2 a go but didn't get on with it. Another game fouling up my games list with 0 achievements thanks to Gamepass, not good for my OCD! Did give Pikuniku a go, seems a nice colourful platform/puzzler. I love the little red blob, especially it's funky legs.
  14. Nope, he actually said Kzinti, a cat like people who have only appeared in the old 70's Animated Trek and who are actually a creation of Sci Fi Author Larry Niven. It was a cool reference and one I certainly wasn't expecting (for license reasons). https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Kzinti?mobile-app=false I also really enjoyed this episode, it's amazing what nostalgia factor can do for a show (I am also warming to Rios and the crew a little bit now).
  15. I seem to remember DS9 having some 12 rated episodes. The one that comes to mind for me was the one where Garak turns serial killer and hangs the bodies of O'Brien's engineering crew on the promenade of that deserted sister station to DS9. On the topic of Picard, it is better than Discovery, but it isn't living up to my vaulted expectations. I know Patrick Stewart is old but he definitely feels off his game, this episode even more so. This rag tag crew isn't growing on me as yet either, they feel too cobbled together and angsty, especially mystery pilot man.

    Started Wandersong, it's a nice quirky 2d game with some lovely simple graphics.
  17. I get the feeling it was done to highlight how different this "Space Legolas" is to the usual Trek characters we get (he prefers blades to disruptors etc). It was a little showy but it didn't bother me to much. At least they got the Romulan blood colour right! Also, I am glad Picard chastised him for doing it rather than saying "well done my boy, that is exactly why I wanted you along, nice efficient head removal when needed". Felt much more in character for Picard to be angry about it.
  18. Yep, the whole expanse thing in Season 3 is great I am glad this series is getting some love on here, so underrated. I restarted my TNG rewatch, towards the end of Series 4 and the Drumhead. Such a great episode with Picard dealing with another dick Admiral who thinks there is some kind of conspiracy on the Enterpirse D. His speech in the end is awesome.
  19. Perhaps he just aged quickly after Nemesis, the trauma of losing Data etc (I know it's far fetched). Also a quick Google reveals that Picard is around his mid 90's at this stage. The Character has always been older than the actor by 10 years or so, although I don't know if this is established canon.
  20. I enjoyed it this week, will agree that the Borg Cube stuff is naff, as are the two characters it centres around. I did enjoy seeing more old school Romulan bowl cuts and giant pointy shoulder pads and that good old Romulan distrust has also began to creep back in. Also
  21. The Risa episode is pretty bad from memory, isn't that where.. Glad you are enjoying it on the whole though, I feel a rewatch taking place somewhat soon myself.
  22. I never felt that TNG transitioned well from TV to Movie, certainly not as well as the original trek cast did anyway. The only TNG movie that worked on the big screen for me was First Contact. I think the Borg threat helped elevate it enough (plus we get to see the Defiant actually fighting against the Borg, although she does get nearly destroyed). Generations is ok, Insurrection is an overblown TV movie and Nemesis just felt oddly out of place with the rest (almost like a TNG comic book story including the villan).
