    He hurt himself trying to get to Eddie.


    Yeah I know that when he went through the opening but it was a totally pointless thing to add in as a bit of writing and added nothing to anything and just made him look a bam.


    Hence I'm wondering if he had a real life injury that the writers had to work around.

  2. Covid isolation meant I watched 8 episodes of this yesterday. So far so good.


    Episode 8 is fantastic, possibly a highlight of all 3 series for me. No idea where on earth it's going for the last 2 episodes but looking forward to finding out.


    I also got the book collection from my kids for father's day the other week so looking forward to getting started on that soon.

  3. Same here, level 48, haven't spent a penny.


    I have hit the grinding stage though and feeling a bit meh about that, I need to be level 51 I think it says to open up the next stages and not sure I can be arsed to keep doing the bounty board stuff our Rifts to get my levels up.


    Joined the Shadows the other day and there is some grinding in that as well.


    The while game is way overcomplicated though, so many little systems and things that I have no clue on what they do, not much interest in learning either to be honest.


    Also seems to push joining up with others online, I've never been a big online gamer and can't see this changing.

  4. Voted for you to cancel but with a caveat.


    As you say they are like hens teeth and there are loads of folk here waiting patiently for their order to tick round, me included.


    If you can why not keep the pre-order and sell it to someone here for what you are paying allowing someone to jump the huuuuge queue.

    I've got the  Midsummer Beer Happening in Stonehaven in June, like everything else it's been cancelled the last few years so nice to have it back. Usually has a decent line up but not much has been announced yet, think Overtone are the only brewers mentioned so far.

    Some good breweries announced for this...








  6. Cheers folks, appreciate the advice.


    I can live with it being later than October to be honest, planning it as a birthday/Xmas present so that's not an issue.


    Just need to get my account sorted and will stick in an order.

  7. Total Steamdeck newbie here and mulling over putting in a pre-order, currently trying to reactivate my Steam account though as it's been dormant for several years.


    Couple of questions though.


    Looking to go for the middle option with the 256gb, suits my price range but is the extra storage worth stretching to?


    How much do you have to out down for the reservation?


    Site says expected delivery would be October which would be spot on for me, how realistic is that?

  8. Will keep Crown Alley in mind if we make it down to the Chelsea area.


    I wish I could fit in a Manchester trip but won't happen this year. A few of us had planned to come down to IMBC back in 2020 but covid fucked that right up. Did see they are back this year though which is good to see, maybe next year.


    Anyone got any festival type things on the cards? Seem to be starting up again thankfully.

    Basically everything that @Mike Ssaid.


    I've got zero interest in the big hazy IPAs that are all the rage these days so Pliny is basically my perfect beer. So easy to drink and so well made, I'd love to knock back a few pints on draught in California sometime.

    I remember some of your previous post about having no interest in the hazy stuff. I don't mind the west coast style now and again, can be a refreshing change from the neipa style that is everywhere.

    That Pliny was a pretty fair price really given the relative expense of shipping bottles from the US. Cheaper than a flight to San Francisco for sure...


    As for the US beers being way better than we have here, I suspect your friend is suffering from a degree of kidology. WhenOH, Treehouse, Trillium, Monkish, whoever et al's hazy are good they really can be better than anyone but we now have plenty of breweries in the UK that are consistently making very good beers in that hazy, hoppy, style that the US pioneered. When spending a tenner or more for a can, plus it being a bit rarer over here, the hype can take over the taste buds,


    I suspect you'll find the OH beers to be very enjoyable indeed but whether that its the same at ten quid for a cab compared to $5 is another matter. Be sure to visit Finback too as they make, for me, the best beer I've had out of NYC.

    Agree, he's gotten wrapped up in the hype and is just riding that wave.


    I reckon the OH will be cracking on tap, looking forwards to it. Scoped out a couple of "craft" bars that Im hoping to get too as well, going with family so mainly ones that serve food so hopefully the kids can come in too. On holiday usually head off for a few beers at night when the kids are in bed and the wife is happy enough when in places like London but she is already a bit wary about me doing it in NY, I can understand that though.


    I was looking at Finback the other week as well but we are staying in Manhattan and it's just too far out the way for a visit unfortunately.

  10. £12 a bottle, fuck that. 


    One of those two mate I mentioned is always getting US import stuff like Other Half, Treehouse etc. Think someone in Aberdeen must import them. How he can justify £10-15 for a 440ml tin is beyond me but if he is happy then good on him. He says these US beers are so much better than what we get here.


    Ive had Other Half before and yeah it's decent but I didn't find it any better than some of the big hazy IPA producers from the UK.


    I'm going to NY in a few months for a holiday (fucking covid permitting) and the Other Half tap room at the Rockefeller is 6 minutes from my hotel so will be paying that a visit.

  11. What is so good about that beer?


    I've a couple of mates who bang on about it and seen folk on FB groups I use bang on about it as well.


    Can't help thinking that it's because it's hard to get in the US let alone here.
