  1. Painkiller is like four best tracks in one track. It starts amazing and never lets up.
  2. Sabreman


    For some unfathomable reason Tool occupied a space in my head alongside Slipknot. I have no idea why, and I never listened to them. I came by a track via a YT reaction video of all fucking places, and now I'm in. This is so much exactly my kind of stuff I'm genuinely angry at myself for not checking them out years ago. I did unfortunately start with the old Apple Essentials playlist, but I've since been putting whole albums on, lights down, lie down.
  3. I did like all the Foundation books, but the initial trilogy was definitely the best and I'm genuinely excited about the TV series. I do remember Foundation and Earth being an absolute rip-roarer, a proper page-turning adventure. Totally agree on the Rama series though. I didn't much mind the second one, but by the third I was just generally cheesed off that all the mystery had been stripped away, and that as per usual humans were fucking everything up.
  4. That's just because TV looks great these days
  5. For me this trilogy has always been about getting through the annoying gameplay bits so I could get back to the Normandy and talk to all my buddies.
  6. Back in 'The Day' I went Soldier in ME1 because you can use a sniper rifle, which is like fighting without having to fight.
  7. ^ I endured the audiobook until the end, but it's the only one I've ever refunded.
  8. Not all the details match up, but the first thing I thought of was Ballroom Blitz:
  9. Wednesday release signifies Loki's desire to take over Odin's domain. Look out for my upcoming 30-minute YT video on this theory.
  10. My mum burns through stuff like this, but not even the series you'd think of. It's always 10 books in the such-and-such saga that you get complete for 99p on kindle. I try not to be a snob about it (I fail), but at least get through the good stuff before reading fifteen books about a dragon. Holy smokes... I've just unlocked a memory. When I was a kid I remember her shelves being chock full of sagas about dragons, particularly the Anne McCaffery ones. I guess it really is a thing with her.
  11. I managed this last year with the help of a kindle, which at least made the footnotes trivial in terms of flow. I'm not sure I would have stuck it out with a physical copy.
  12. Speaking of Moore, today I finally read the entirety of From Hell in one sitting (well, I read the actual story, and I'm currently making my way through its insanely comprehensive appendices). Late to the party and all that, but, it's fucking excellent isn't it. I think I was expecting something drier and more obviously factual - with some speculation of course, but the way he wove in the occult, psychology, history, the explosion of technology and culture, and the persistent nature of evil completely sucked me in. I've found myself adding books about architecture and the history of London to
  13. Naturally I gave up on Ulysses, but that was years ago on a paperback edition and most of the trouble I was having was constantly encountering words I simply didn't understand. I've often thought another go on the kindle might be more successful, even if I still spend a great deal of time bringing up the dictionary.
  14. I just bought this with the same kind of reflex I get when someone uploads a fan remake of a video game.
  15. "Where's my box?"
  16. I think it's a Carol / Kamala two-hander. I choked up at the end of that promo. These silly comic-book movies.
  17. I'm surprised MacFarlane didn't do anything with this. I heard he'd basically bought the rights years ago because it's his favourite TV show.
  18. Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is the one I always trot out. They took the core elements of an infamous, iconic video game, added enough twists to make it Something New but still emphatically Pac-Man, and delivered what I consider to be a legitimate masterpiece. I absolutely agree with Street Fighter IV as well.
  19. Agreed. And his introduction to the show was this kind of smug shot with no character context, pitting the audience against him immediately because he's not Steve or Sam. A couple of scenes of him in action and humanising him as a man and comrade throughout episode one, leading up to him being offered the shield, would have helped enormously.
  20. Absolutely loved this episode, and yeah, I felt really put out when the credits rolled.
  21. Storyline spoiler, but essentially yes:
  22. The world has changed. We're now (mostly) comprised of generations that grew up playing video games, or at least have had them as a major part of popular culture and pastimes. I've never stopped doing the things I enjoy doing, and balls to anyone who scoffs at it. If anything, games are perfectly suited to giving my crumbling brain a reason to keep functioning.
  23. I liked Zemo legit shitting himself when he thought Bucky was going to clobber him.
  24. The iTunes version of Shin is dubbed only, I can confirm. I excitedly bought it when it dropped to a gimme price.
  25. I subbed to NowTV for a while and I did get a lot out of things like the Sky Arts channel, but yeah, for watching anything else it was astonishingly poor. I used to download stuff I had access to just for better quality.
