  1. Loving this now it has got away from charging dramas. Some of the shots are incredible, particularly through Bolivia as JohnC said and Peru this week. A return to form after Long Way Down. Hope they do more of them - find these type of shows very easy to watch.
  2. You are a superstar. Probably tomorrow evening but will ping you and fit in with when you are on.
  3. I have one Triumph left to complete to get the Dredgen Seal. I need to complete the Malfeasance Exotic Quest and I am stuck at the step where you have to run the modified Corrupted Strike (the one on The Dreaming City). I tried to solo it for hours last night without success. Anyone fancy helping me over the weekend? I am on PS4. Cheers. Andy
  4. Finally got around to watching Bosch - got through the first three seasons over the past couple of weeks. I am a massive fan of the Michael Connelly books and had an image in my head of what Bosch looked like and it was nothing like Titus Welliver. Due to this and the fact the trailers (and boy did they trail it back at the start) didn’t grab me, I haven’t watched it previously. However, having completed Netflix during lockdown, I decided to give it a go and I am glad I did. Yes, it has lots of detective show cliches (in fairness so do the books) and some of the acting isn’t great (his daughte
  5. So if I set up Cross Save and sign up to Game Pass, I am good to go?
  6. I play this on the PS4 at the moment and if you can buy it, I have it. I also have Beyond Light pre-ordered on the PS4. I also have a Series X preordered and will move over to that when it comes out. Do I need a to buy anything again? Would I be better off buying Beyond Light on XBOX? I am so confused and I’ve played this since day one so god knows how new players feel.
  7. Yep, this feels much more like Round than Down which is for the best.
  8. I had a break earlier this year. Whatever the Season before this one was I didn’t touch at all but I have gone back to it and from a shooting perspective, there really is nothing like it. The issue they have had recently is that the Seasonal content hasn’t been particularly compelling. However, I’ve finally got in to Gambit having ignored it previously thinking it was PvP (there is obviously an element of PvP) and it’s brilliant. Hopefully Dying Light can give PvE a shot in the arm.
  9. Ahhh, I didn’t realise it ended today. You can probably do the intermediate step which gets you to 1036 if I recall correctly.
  10. If you carry on with that quest, you can get the gear up to 1050. Some of it is a bit grindy but you can do it all solo.
  11. 11. Lone Rider by Elspeth Beard I’ve been doing my Motorbike Test this year and so have been reading MCN etc. I saw this recommended and having loved Long Way Round thought I would give it a try. It’s written by Elspeth who was the first British woman to travel round the world on a motorbike back in 1982. It’s brutally honest and some of the things she goes through are horrific but she tells the story with humour. One of the things I loved about it is that it’s pre-internet and mobile phones which really adds to the sense of discovery and her having to deal with things very much on
  12. Ditto. I’ve watched Long Way Round so many times but the second one didn’t engage me in quite the same way. However, really looking forward to this and knew my free Apple TV sub from O2 would be useful at some point.
  13. This was the only one I really wanted as it has a Sleeper/Wedding Present collaboration. Finally managed to get it online from Piccadilly Records this evening. There were a few others I might have been interested in if they weren’t so pricey.
  14. 10. How To Be Famous by Caitlin Moran I picked this up on a whim in Waterstones ages ago and finally got around to reading it on holiday. Absolutely loved it. I was slightly older than the main character Johanna is during Britpop but it brought back lots of memories and reminded me of Louise Wener’s (Sleeper) autobiographical “Different for Girls (Adventures in Britpop)”. I read it in a day and hadn’t realised it was a sequel so immediately ordered “How To Build a Girl” which was waiting for me when I got back from holiday. Next up “Lone Rider” by Elspeth Beard
  15. 9. We Can See You by Simon Kernick Will the real Simon Kernick please stand up. This is a strange book. I read it in two sittings so I guess from one perspective it’s a page-turner. However, it feels like the very definition of “phoning it in”. For the first time, the setting has moved to the US and focuses on a kidnapped girl. I won’t spoil anything but to say you have to suspend disbelief is an understatement. Every single character introduced ends up having some major part in the story. I don’t know if this was some kind of contractual obligation to his publisher, an attempt to
