    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    Interesting that I came here to say that I'm watching this with my 13 year old daughter. I say watching but I will have to warn her in advance of watching episode 3 as it very gorey. Up until now, I've had no problem with the material, including the suicide. Mental health issues need to be discussed and open so I have no issue with that. I'm not sure the gore was necessary to such an extent in episode 3. We've discussed the impact on radiation poisoning on the body but I'm not sure seeing it will help her understand any more fully.
  2. I'm surprised that so many fail to see that the whole point of the ending is that the Starks run all of westeros and beyond. It's the perfect 'good prevails' in the end. The story started with the most honourable and just house in the whole world being ripped apart by their naivety. The story is entirely about those children having their lives torn apart, but making their way through it, learning to understand and overcome their naivety to ultimately play the game better than anyone else. I can't see the 'actual' grrm ending being massively different.

    TMs are far more valuable to me than a high level eevee. Weather boosted eevee have traditionally been very common where I live.

    Glaceon is very close to mamoswine though and considering the acquisition cost, I'd suggest that everyone looks to get at least a team of 6. I had thousands of eevee candy and about 100 high level eevees which I can plough through and delete whatever gets the wrong moves. I've done about 6 glaceon so far and only 1 has the best moveset but still have loads more high level eevee to try, at 25 candy a go.
  5. As a huge subnautica fan, I played a little bit of sub zero yesterday. Firstly, the performance seemed much better for me. The first looked absolutely gorgeous but struggled with frame rate a little on my pc. The frame rate seems more consistent so far. The intro is very different to the base game, and the first few plants/creatures you interact with are new compared to the base game. When the game starts for real, things become far more familiar. The initial base is different but most of the items, creatures and resources are the same. It may be a case that, in future, there will be no need for new players to play the base game at all. Either way, for me personally, right now, I'd love to get in to the world again and have absolute faith that they will make it amazing in the end. I don't think I'll play any more for now and will hold off until either release or if I want to head back in the world properly.
  6. Interesting, I wonder why Oni was removed. Maybe they don't want to risk eating in to full release sales.
  7. Definitely Oxygen not included!
  8. And subnautica below zero early access for £5.49! That's it, take my money epic, your ploy has worked.
  9. Oxygen not included is £4.24. I'd highly recommend it for that price.

    Nice spot, just checked and it is 36 months max combined.

    Descenders is a strange game. The first 5 minutes are appallingly bad in my opinion. Terrible tutorial that forces you to do tricks to progress, ridiculously long loading times, intrusive music, floaty feeling handling. I almost deleted it there and then. 20 minutes later and i'm really enjoying it. Switched to first person, turned the music off, ignored the tricks entirely (which is completely fine) and played some career mode. At its best it feels like a f-zero or wipeout but on a bike. It is smooth, has a consistent frame rate and is a lot of fun. The handling takes some getting used to. And then you have the procedural generation which works really well. The career mode seems well thought out and doesn't require any particular style of play apart from bonus objectives. So much better than expected but they really should have sorted out the first few minutes.

    I've just enrolled so hopefully you are right. The ultimate combo combines existing game pass and live subs. So 12 months of remaining live+ 12 of remaining game pass = 24 months ultimate. I plan to try and get some cheap live subs over the next couple of months and then use them before signing up. I have game pass until toward the end of next year already so a couple of years of live on top would be amazing.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    I watched the BBC version after the HBO and they really are incredibly similar but both excellent. I'm guessing that they are both based on the same source material, rather than the HBO being a rip-off of the BBC one. Can't wait for the next episode. The main 'you're wrong' guy is something I have seen in my working life, but thankfully not quite in as extreme a situation. I once had to escalate a serious safety issue 3 layers before someone was willing to accept the truth about a product that was about to be shipped which would have cost lives. I guess my point is that a big part of the BBC documentary focusses on the culture within the USSR at the time, that can be heavily attributed to the incident happening but the politics isn't very different from what I've seen in modern day UK companies.
  14. Just read the wired piece. I have wondered, and this piece backed my wondering up, that the only thing grrm knew and told the TV show about, was Arya's story and her role in the final throws. Her story and the few interactions that she has had with others have been by far the best written pieces in these last 2 or 3 episodes. Pretty much everything else has been sub-standard drivel, put in purely as fan-service or logistics to put Arya in the positions that she needs to be. I'm still enjoying it as a spectacle but the writing and story telling is just so, so shit. GoT was all about the internal fight that we all face in decision making and every moment in the early seasons made you question the motives of every single character (apart from the stark men who have always played the naive good role and the night king who played the naive bad role). Most of the characters have now either become polarised caricatures or comedy tools. The drinking game scene was just terrible, and served absolutely no purpose apart from leading to the fan-service of Brienne and Jaime fucking.
  15. I think Dany losing everything that she loved and trusted has played out well this season. She is now just depressed and I really hope it doesn't just turn that in to 'the mad queen's.
