    God of War (2018) - Magni-ficent!

    I've played through on God of War difficulty and its been an utter bastard; so many times I've felt like just knocking it down a level. Most notably during the... I'm now near the end and I've got to fend off four waves of utter bastards... It has been enjoyable but some bosses have had me stumped for a week at a time and I've been shouting "cunt" a lot and punching myself in the thigh Its still fab and I don't regret spending 50 quid on it.

    Just to add to the public lynching of Ben; I’ve only really listened to a few Bombcasts since Ben came onboard. I really don’t like the guy at all, his style/ personality distracts from the content of the show. The only times I’ve gone back is when I’ve noticed that he’s not on that weeks cast. Beastcast has has been my staple for the past year but it’s starting to grate a bit. Alex actually (and Jeff) really work for me. I don’t know why but Alex’s flog the fuck out of a joke/ over reactions have pretty much disappeared. Abby, nice enough person but forgettable. Dan is still captain ignorant (...or is he?) and Vinnie just sounds bored. I resubbed a few months back but I don’t think I’ll bother next year. Not unless there’s a bit of a shake up.

    Thanks man @petrolgirls and sorry for not replying to this sooner. Yeah I imagine you'll have a beast of a machine for your postproduction work. Good to know that even uber machines are running crap but also worrying that its this bad. I've experimented with Lightroom CC and It's pretty decent on my phone (although I wish there was some way on painting back in an erased mask ) The biggest pisser I have with Lightroom CC on desktop over Classic is that its not using virtual copies, it creates physical copies.

    The Rllmuk Photography Thread

    Not posted for a while; I just came on to see if folk were having issues with Lightroom running like crap. Threw some shots on Flickr (mostly I just post to Instagram now). 20180701-DSC_6296.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr 20180701-DSC_6183.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr 20180701-DSC_6187.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr 20180701-DSC_6195.jpg by Iain Campbell, on Flickr

    Anyone having utter shit with Lightroom Classic CC at the moment? By utter shit I mean just getting dead slow to respond to edits. I can be trying to use sliders on an adjustment brush and its taking a good 5 seconds to respond. Stats - MBP running 10.13.5 (High Sierra) 2.53Ghz i5 8GB with all apps installed to a SSD and I've also moved my catalogue files to the SSD to (with no performance improvement). I've also tried using a shared catalogue on CC cloud storage on my work MBP which is running same OS, i7 with 16gb and 3.2Ghz and an SSD clock speed. Still runs like a dog. Lightroom GPU acceleration is off on both Macs. The only way I've managed to get any improvement is to roll back Lightroom Classic CC to version 7.1 (latest release is 7.3.1) on both Macs I've even started toying with the idea of building a PC just for a Lightroom rig; though I've read over the past few days that the sluggish performance with Lightroom is not unique to Macs. Anyone else having similar issues? or know any work arounds?

    6 episodes into this and it's just utter shite! Bauer keeps saying "please, don't get up" or some shit when walking into a room. I'm off work sick and I have no idea why I'm still watching this bullshit.
  7. I'm just finishing the second book and I'm gagging to see how SE2 pans out. I can see me being forced down the torrent route. FFS

    Cheers. Its only bringing up a lot of more recent content with RDR, I take it most of the vintage Bombcasts haven't been tagged up?

    For the last few months I've just not bothered with Bombcast at all, its been Beastcast all the way. I think I gave up on the West after Drew left; I was just sick of the same old format and Brad spoiling shit. I miss Jeff but thats about it. East just keeps getting better and better.

    I was looking the other day for Bombcasts around about the time of Red Dead Redemption being released but I'm getting nowhere. I even tried manually looking through podcast listings around May 2010. Any secret squirrel way of finding podcasts that cover specific games/ content on the Giant Bomb archive? Ta

    A Totally Awesome Mix You Should Download

    Do you get any stats/ analytics on how many downloads or traffic from SoundCloud/ Mixcloud you've acquired over the years? I really think you should set up a donations page. I've been listening to your mixes for so long mate in good times and bad and I still get tingles. Maybe I could send you an inner tube for the CX bike or something You need to do a podcast and describe your workflow (*designwank) for how you go about doing a mix. I'd be fascinated to hear that.

    I've been hammering this the last few days (along with Tool's 10,000 Days album). Fuck Yesh!

    You should have access to LR mobile but I've not used it that much. No idea if it will push iOS content to LR on the desktop. 99% of the time I just email iOS shots to myself and then import in.
