  1. Would have to say, with the benefit of cheap digital sales, more digital only games and Gamepass my physical game collection is much reduced this past gen. I have also found the second hand market is not as cost effective as it once was.

  2. 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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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.


  5. 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?

    You can delete games with zero achievements from your play history.

    The option I get is to "hide" them, which looks like it only removes them from your friends lists.


  7. 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).


  8. 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.

    Aye, loved that. Did I spot one or two Enterprise nods?

    "We've had trouble with Xindi", is that what Riker said? 

     

    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).

    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).

    No you are quite right.   I was just thinking back to the 80s and the kind of films I was watching, then I realised they were often 18s.

     

    Certainly most trek was easily PG at it's edgiest.

    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.

    Maybe I should rephrase that: someone got gratuitously decapitated in a tv episode of Star Trek and the camera lovingly lingered over the gore. It did not feel right to me and encapsulated a trend in contemporary Star Trek shows for replacing thoughtful approaches to resolving violence with empty action and spectacle.

    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.


  12. Yep, the whole expanse thing in Season 3 is great

    Spoiler

    The way the ship gets gradually beat up over the season is great, contrast with Voyager which looks like its been visiting a Starfleet space dock every week.

    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.
