    Nintendo Switch

    I never said he was being stupid, I said he was trying to make a point in a stupid way. Nintendo hard- and software doesn't get priced down too often because they don't need to price down - they are doing just fine on their current model without needed to get involved in Sony and Microsoft's never ending loss leading tech and sales wars. On the flip side, seeing things marked down a few weeks or a month after release is hardly an inspiring sign of quality, even if it has now become an expectation. How often do we read 'I'll just wait a few weeks till it's less than £30'?

    Nobody thought you were. It's just that it was a really stupid way of saying that Switch games hold value whereas the games on other platforms don't. As others have said, you can sell your two year old Switch games for a pretty small loss relative to the pennies you'd make selling most equivalently aged PS4 or Xbox software. Not that you'd want to sell them of course...

    There are no comparable games on other formats though! Which might be another reason they hold their price.

    Buying lots of things at once and then finding out that it costs a lot should not be a surprise. But Nintendo's own games hold prices as they remain as good now as they were at launch and none have been superseded by sequels.

    Is it smaller than the regular model?
  6. The meltdown had the potential to cause a secondary steam explosion had it reached the pool of water below the reactor which, potentially, would have been devastating to the entire plant. That's why the three men were sent to drain the pool.
  7. And that is without the possible catastrophic effects on the other three reactors had Reactor Four exploded and damaged them too. There was potential for a significant global impact rather than a regional one.
  8. There is already a CD quality FLAC release or you can stream at that, or higher, quality via Tidal.. https://www.highresaudio.com/en/album/view/pdkm83/hildur-gunadttir-chernobyl-music-from-the-original-tv-series

    Cadence of Hyrule

    I'm not finding it to be anywhere near as challenging as I found Necrodancer if that helps..
  10. It's already out! And is, of course, brilliant.

    I didn't know this was out already! Off to the e-shop ASAP then...
  12. I am obviously hyped for this. I also have no idea what Martin can bring to FROMs amazing worlds other than his name. I like FROM's subtle/obtuse story telling just as it is so, hopefully, there won't be too much expositon..
  13. Same here, just started back on episode one last night and, having seen the final episode, it makes for a very different viewing. Can't recall ever doing that with a drama but then nothing has come close to the impact of this. I've started reading Chernobyl: A History of Tragedy by Serhii Plokhy which really fleshes out the protagonists and the setting.
  14. I'll not derail this thread any further with talking about @kerraig UK and his attitude but I didn't call him a cunt, just pointed out that he was acting like one. In hindsight maybe 'dick' would be more reasonable but to avoid placing myself in such a quandary in the future he's on ignore from now on.
  15. I have not suggested there was equivalence at all. 'Are there any good female roles?' was your relayed question. I offer the example of a very significant and 'good' female role that carries an awful lot of narrative weight. You then decide that the question was actually 'is there an equivalent number of female to male roles?' which, of course, there are not because as you rightly say, that was just how it was. I fail to understand how you could misinterpret my answer enough to accuse me of suggesting equivalence let alone of being part of 'the problem'.
