  1. The Big question that I can't believe they didn't answer in the last episode is: what did (Ser) Pod do with those prostitutes that they didn't want paying for?

    My mates have just asked if the good in there is any good or if we should get something in Manchester first?
  3. I'm going to have to buck the trend and say I enjoyed this series. Yes, it moved along at a decent clip and it was clear it had moved away from the fan fiction, but it was good TV. Loads of flaws, but a great spectacle. As for the latest episode: Where the fuck did all those Dothraki and Unsullied come from? Loved the "Dany with dragon wings" shot. The while bit with the dragon and the dead Dany was the highlight for me. No way the Unsullied would have taken Jon alive. And why didn't they just let him go once dickless had fucked off? Bronn did alright for himself, which was nice to see. You might think the Starks won the Game, but The Imp won it all, IMO.

    Your views on collecting

    I see collecting as essentially a different hobby to gaming, with some crossover. Especially now that there are not only a lot more workable emulation options these days, but also ways to play roms on original hardware. So, if you just want to play the games, there are options beyond actually owning the physical game. Collecting is exactly that. It's the pursuit of a complete set of whatever set it is you're trying to complete. The fact they're games is largely irrelevant, they could be model trains, beanie babies or the skulls of all who have wronged you. Like I say, there is some crossover. I used to collect games to play. I had a list of games that I had either loved previously or had missed out on and wanted to play. Thing is, I could understand previous frustrations "gamers" had with "collectors". If there was something "R@RE" you wanted to play, collectors could drive the price up to a point beyond what you'd want to pay. But I would say this isn't as much of an issue anymore, purely due to the aforementioned options for playing just about anything.

    Yeah, I've seen a couple of stage Brutalities so far...

    I've tried both of those and couldn't really get in with them. Might give them another go, or pick someone else at random to try. Hadn't a "quick go" last night and spent two hours doing the Towers of Time. It's funny, I was totally non plused with these at launch, but I'm really enjoying them now. Did some stupid things to maximize points - mostly performing a Mercy with fuck all health left and then losing. But it was still great to play. I've got about two million Koins at present, so I've started spending a bit of time opening everything I find in the Krypt. I can see Hearts are going to be the first thing I'll run out of... Realised something last might: there doesn't seem to be any stage fatalities, which must be a first for the series? Or have I just not found any?

    I don't mind that one so much. I seem to think there was something similar in a much earlier game. I'm thinking 3 or so.... Who is anyone using as their main? I wanted to stay away from Scorpion this time around, but have somehow fallen into using him for everything. I haven't even tried most of the roster.

    This is the end... Good and bad TV endings

    I think what made it really good was that it didn't "end". While their lives were changing and, like you said, characters had big developments, it wasn't like they all moved away and went in separate directions. They were all as they've been for a dozen series, just a bit further along their lives.

    I actually used Konsumables last night, for the first time. There was a tower where you fought three Shao Khans, the first of which had the Armour buff - which meant he basically doesn't react to being hit, this confuses the hell out of the AI by the way. It was hard as hell, but didn't feel impossible. After I'd lost a few times, I looked at my Konsumables and discovered one that removes the Armour buff. That and one of the health restore krystals made a really hard fight just difficult and a lot more fun. I can kinda see the point of them now.

    We can add Big Bang Theory to the "good ending" column. Take note, Game of Thrones...

    The whole economy, including Konsumables, has the whiff of a last minute addition about it. I suspect this is why the ludicrous Towers of Time difficulty and Krypt grinding were so evident on launch - there wasn't time to test it all properly. Something that has just occurred while thinking about the economy - you can but skins with Time Krystals, but they specifically say "can be found in the Krypt". So what happens if you've already bought a skin and open the chest it should be in in the Krypt?

    PlayStation Classic

    I've just come this |.| close to buying one for £30. I'd always thought I'd get one once it dropped below £30, but I gave it a bit of thought and realised I wouldn't get thirty quid's worth of entertainment out of it. It'd get five minutes play and then would sit in a shelf, next to the two actual PS1 consoles... I think...

    It's worth noting that you need soul fragments to unlock towers in the second set of the single character tower things. The one in the top left of the Towers of Time. To me, the gear and augments seem to be a missed opportunity. They don't do enough to warrant hunting them down. And gear all needs levelling individually, so switching it is actually a negative. Unless I've just not encountered any decent gear?
