  1. I know, I was just pointing out to the OP that he could watch it if he wanted to.
  2. This is exceptional so far (three episodes in). Aside from seeing a few paintings over the years I'm not overly familiar with the source material but I don't think that is too detrimental to enjoyment given how well this stands up. First off it looks inceible - the mix of old alien relics sitting in the mundane 80's ish setting is surreal and impressive and does appear to be very fair representative of what I've seen of the artwork. The whole aesthetic reminds me a bit of Half-Life 2. Most importantly the stories so far have been wonderful - really quite moving and very human focussed despite (or because of) the odd tech that drives them. Top marks to the beautiful score too. I'm unsure where any Stranger Things comparisons are coming from as, aside from some child actors, this is a far different beast - it's restrained, elegant, serious, and poetic in a way that is quite unlike ST.
  3. Disney plays fine with VPN so, yeah, you can watch Onward today if you want..
  4. Deep Red, Tenebrae, and Opera next if I were you...
  5. Pazuzu is always open to followers provided they bring offerings and take nothing but salvation. Strict dress code.
  6. I'm just going to sit here in Pazuzu and wait out this ridiculous egg based 'celebration' of the death and alleged rising of your false prophet... Apart, of course, from trying to raise 100,000 bells in order to buy some turnips tomorrow as the eggs have killed my revenue streams.
  7. I'd add these to the other recommendations: The 13th The Staircase The Keepers Icarus I hear American factory is very good but haven't had the time to watch it myself yet.
  8. You need to 'make a wish' when you see them by:
  9. Yeah, it has killed my enthusiasm for the game almost stone dead. I have no motivation to fish anymore, balloons are just recipes for egg things or yet more eggs. I think I will get a few more fruit trees growing, harvest them every few days, and then step back until the whole egg thing is done.
  10. I just noticed (the original) Dumb and Dumber is on there. Never gets old.
  11. Quote me saying that, please. Maybe also start a poll requesting that every post be spoilered as that is what would have to happen if this is taken to the logical conclusion. Unless you want to make a list of what can and can not be spoilered? Is godzilla acceptable but a fish not? Is an odd hat OK? What about wallpapers? Fencing? etc. As I said, it doesn't matter that the game has been out for a while - due to the RNG many may well not have seen X fish or X bug, or X outfit even after playing for X days. Also, many players are playing at a slower rate or are fresh so you really need to spoil every single post if you want to do this properly. And by awful I didn't mean the act of actually retrospectively spoiling every post (although that would of course be immensely tedious). I was referring to the finished product - a thread in which everything is behind spoilers. Which would be awful. I remember the mess and confusion of the Dark Souls and Bloodborne threads in which spoilering of boss names was a thing.
  12. Start by going back and spoilering every post in which you have named or shown a species, clothing, furniture, wallpaper, collectibles, etc, etc, etc? Then ask every one else to do the same. It would be awful.
  13. The whole thread is a spoiler and, realistically, it cannot not be. It doesn't matter if someone sees the name of a fish (or a weird piece of furniture/walling/etc) now or in three weeks as, other than the common species, there is no guarantee that they will have seen it at any time so that argument is a bit of a nonsense plus, of course, people are starting fresh all the time. If a fish name goes in a spoiler, given the random nature of them, how does the nervous viewer know it is one they won't have seen? I specifically mentioned maybe two new fish as I was excited to catch them especially as one had a very amusing name, just as many, many, others have done since day one. That is the fun of the thread - I don't mind hearing about a fish as it makes me keen to try and catch one (the others I named have all been outed in this thread already, as have some other new species by other posters posting before me today). Showing images of rare species is a whole other thing and that I do consider a bit of a spoiler. Again, that is something that has happened plenty of times in here but, equally, there is a good possibility that you might see those rare species on display on other folk's islands (as I have done and I am not an especially frequent traveller to other islands). So, logically, you'd best not travel either. Anyway, I like reading about rare species as it gives me something to aim for/look forward to maybe seeing/catching. It seems like that is a big part of the fun.
  14. It's a pretty significant fuck up and really doesn't bode well. I did a search the other night and it seems that, back in November, Disney assured a pissed off US market that the proper aspect ratios would be made available in 'early 2020'. Clearly that hasn't happened which is disappointing as the current treatment is unforgivably awful.. I suppose I could watch the correctly ratio'ed Season 20 onwards but I'm not hugely familiar with later Simpsons and really wanted to watch all those classic earlier episodes. One other thing, using the Apple app, this is a pain in the bollocks to use. If I'm watching an episode of The Simpsons I'd would expect going up a level to take me to that episodes summary screen, and doing so again would take me to the list of episodes in the season, and then again to all the seasons. Instead it takes me straight to the main homepage where I need to find the Simpsons (in the banner if lucky or, if not, via search). It genuinely amazes me that such backwards, clunky UI could be signed off. I have it for another month so shall watch the first Pirates of The Caribbean, maybe the second, but after that I'm out. Ha. True.. It's not new but The Rocketeer remains a lot of fun.
  15. Aah, right. Accidental cosplay! I'm no snitch though...
