  1. Someone needs to hire the guy who did the Olympics opening ceremony, force him to watch the Paralympics opening ceremony, then fire him again. It was balmy and emotive and just a bit wild. It was Japanese, basically. I loved it.
  2. 13 year old silver medallist congratulating 13 year old gold medallist is probably going to be one of my favourite moments ever.
  3. Of course your teammates died - it was a 5v6. It's always better to commit to a sub-optimal play and have a chance of winning than to just watch your team die, get no ult charge and lose the game. Plus Moira always has a chance of survival. She has zero utility but some of the best healing output and survivability mechanics in the game. Focusing on someone else's game is one way to guarantee you'll not enjoy playing comp. Either play Quick Play or learn to focus on your own game.
  4. Nope, it was a design choice made to ensure the game can be played on older hardware and/or at high framerates. It's not a bad looking game, really. I've been playing a couple of matches each night as either Sage or Jett. It's very, very good. It will take time for me to understand some of the recoil and spread mechanics, but I'm enjoying it for what it is right now, which is a CS:GO clone with Overwatch style abilities. That feeling when you're on defence and forced to rotate because 3 team mates just got killed at the other bomb site, hoping you can solo carry the round by being clever with your abilities and aiming good - it's the very best of CS:GO but with some extra flavour, and a lot of people are going to absolutely love it. It's quite odd that the most hyped game on planet right now just passes rllmuk by with barely a mention. Demographics and a lack of people who play competitive FPS games, I guess.
  5. 625 FBJ86 Good luck to whoever gets in before 12!
  6. Torbjorn is basically a soft throw if you're picking it in competitive. No character is easy to play apart from Moira, so you may as well just pick a few you like the feeling of, check out some tips, and get better. Maybe give Soldier 76 a miss though.
  7. Can't actually wait. No more instalock Genji/Widow bullshit in the lower levels anymore. The problem with that was always the 3rd or 4th person who wanted to play DPS either throwing, or thinking they can "flex" onto Moira and then just pressing right click all game, the tanks getting shredded, and then complaining that they got 3 gold medals. Nothing about that was fun. Ever. The game was decided at the loaded screen. That will still happen sometimes, but not as much, and that's a good thing. If you don't want long DPS queue times, learn to play a support character.
  8. I got to play through Planescape Torment for the first time last year. The graphics look like an old photograph covered in coffee, the voice lines sound like they were recorded using a tin can, and your guy runs around like he's shat himself. And somehow, I absolutely loved the atmosphere, and found it on par with any modern RPG. It's just all so inescapably grim. Like, literally you can't even die properly, so you just have to press forward through this smelly city until it's finally over.
  9. Just go along for the ride. I for one support this new movement and the feeling it brings to my loins. Japanese people have been consuming body-swap stories pretty much forever so it's unsurprising this has hit a sweet spot over there.
  10. So unique, even if it had a shitty skiing level. You regained health by spying on sexy ladies. So good.
  11. 1. OutRun 2 2. Gunblade NY (or possibly LA Machineguns, I can't remember which but those rumbling guns were amazing) 3. Manx TT Superbike 4. Time Crisis 2 5. House of the Dead 6. Daytona USA 7. Sega Rally Championship 8. Prop Cycle 9. Virtual On Ontario 10. Street Fighter II Could have all been racing games really. Scud Racer and Crazy Taxi only miss out because they lack nostalgia compared to the 90s stuff for me.
  12. https://shadowverse.gamewith.jp/ is far and away the best resource for finding meta decks. I realise it's not in English, but the 2nd and 3rd option on the top bar (desktop) will take you to the juiciest deck lists for rotation and unlimited respectively. The deck code link is the blue button beneath the deck recipe.
  13. Shadowverse has pre-built decks and fairly generous log-in rewards, so you're looking at a pretty small outlay to get up to speed compared to Hearthstone.
  14. i think they should make golden cards have a small bonus or something so it's worth getting. I think +1 attack or -1 less mana to cast or something
  15. I genuinely can't bear to go to Yo Sushi. It's much worse than Kura Sushi in Japan, but about 4x the price for each dish, without the variety or the fun. I've just moved to Golders Green, is Eat Tokyo the place to go there then? When I lived in Leeds I did like Sushi Waka and the one in Meanwood I've forgotten the name of. Definitely as good as anything you'd find in London! The guy who owns the Meanwood restaurant also loves whisky and has a good collection.
  16. I played the first one on Steam a year ago and loved it, what about the second and third ones? Are they just crappy spin offs or something?
  17. I thought it was quite nice, but the Overwatch ones are still way better.
  18. Anything going up against Overwatch or PUBG is going to have a horrible time. If you've got OW or PUBG to play, why bother with other games that probably aren't as good, or don't offer anything particularly different? Star Wars Battlefront II is my pick. Sequel to a hated game in a crowded genre, released when its potential player base is probably still busy with COD.
  19. Conversely, I've never seen Rag lose.
  20. Yeah so F1 Live in London was a bit busy then.
  21. I work at an agency that serves some of the companies mentioned in this thread. 2 things. 1) The space is hyper competitive and marketing spend is absolutely massive just to not get drowned out. Don't assume they're not paying lots, because they absolutely can afford it, including the Chinese sites. 2) Try not to get too upset at the casinos, because I guarantee their bosses won't be losing any sleep over it. If you think something is amiss, it's the UKGC you probably want to raise your voice to.
  22. I'm not sure about that. I think a scenario like mine, where the second console would go to a family member, is far more likely.
