  1. You have to hold A as I recall, so yes he's doing it wrong.

    Destiny 2 - Sekiro's out on Friday

    The social areas are meant to be social, both for gameplay and lore reasons. You're just one of many Guardians going about your business, outside of the story campaigns where everyone's the most important Guardian who ever lived. Even then though, it still makes sense for you to run into other Guardians in the social areas.

    The Division 2 - GOTY 2019

    I'd be up for the Xbox clan if you do make one.

    The Division 2 - GOTY 2019

    I seem to be utterly awful at this, although I suspect I might have just realised why. I've reached level 6 but I've only played through one main mission, and it looks like those are what give you your main skill upgrades. I also think I've made a mistake getting the Xbox One version bearing in mind where the rest of you are playing.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Spock's a bit of a dick in this, to the point where he seems like a completely different character to the Spock I know. I'm assuming he's being played as more emotional due to his smile in the TOS pilot, but it's a bit of a leap to go from that to this. This episode was one of my least favourite so far I think. So much of it was just daft, and yes the transporter could have solved everything at the end. Sure that's always been a narrative problem in Star Trek, but there's usually some technobable to explain why it can't be used. Here there was nothing. Worse than that though: Oh and Section 31 continues to make no sense. Neither does their ridiculous selection box of space mines.
  6. I really thought the empty box could have been an illusion. It was unlikely, but the inscription did say to contrast all options. I took it a bit too literally.

    The Vela (Serial Box)

    Yep! You can download them in three different formats along with an audiobook version, including mobi. I read them on a Kindle myself.

    The first episodes of all their series are free. Here's The Vela's: https://www.serialbox.com/serials/the-vela?season=1

    The Vela (Serial Box)

    I don’t know if anyone else is reading this, but after two episodes I’m quite intrigued to see where it’s going. It’s a space opera about a mission to find a missing refugee ship in a system with a dying star, and it’s being written and released like a TV show. There’s a team of writers involved, each episode takes about fourty minutes to read and has its own arc within the ongoing story. I thought the first part was a little too action heavy without enough character development, but the second slowed things right down for a much more character led story. I like the universe it’s building too, and it’s quite timely with its themes of xenophobia and environmentalism. It’s nothing mind blowing, but it’s solid so far and the novelty of the format alone is interesting enough for me. I only heard of Serial Box when they started to publicise The Vela, but I absolutely love the concept. They’ve clearly been around for a while as they’ve released quite a few series in different genres, some of which have had several seasons already. They include audiobook versions of each episode they release as part of the price too, although I’ve stuck with reading The Vela for now. I don’t suppose anyone else is reading this, or anything else Serial Box have put out?

    The Division 2 - GOTY 2019

    I've picked up the Xbox One version if anyone fancies teaming up at some point. I probably won't be on until tomorrow though.

    Star Trek Discovery

    I still don't dislike the show. On balance I think it's fine, but I wouldn't be too upset if it just stopped existing. I'm sure people are sick of comparisons to The Orville, but I was really struck last week at how much of a better job that show is doing with character development and world building. Most of Discovery's characters just aren't very interesting at the moment, including the core cast and even Spock! As for the world, it's managed the impressive feat of somehow shrinking the Star Trek universe. It doesn't feel like the expansive universe of possibilities it used to, and Starfleet feels like it consists of two ships. While I'm moaning, I really don't like what this show has done to Section 31. DS9 presented them as essentially undercover Spectres, doing Starfleet's deniable dirty work. They certainly weren't flying around in the most advanced ships in the fleet and flashing special badges to everyone they met. They just don't make any sense. I do like Pike though, and Saru. I even don't mind Tilly, and I'm at least a little interested to find out what the Red Angel is all about.
  12. Minecraft wasn't seen as a kids game when it started. In fact it was bloody terrifying at times thanks to creepers. I lost a crazy amount of time to it during the beta. It was probably all the YouTube let's plays that popularised the game with kids, and since then it's been marketed as such, but it's still the same game at its heart.
  13. The constructs were so strong I assumed there must have been some clever way to avoid that fight that we'd missed. It was a good fight though.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    R-Play supports Mfi pads as well as the workaround, although you have to program toggle functions to get around the missing L3/R3 buttons. I guess Sony didn't want people to play with that restriction, even though it's still better than remote play on a Vita. You need to set up a second PSN account on your PS4, and log in your remote play client using that. Then just connect a PS4 pad to the PS4 using your actual PSN account. The remote play session remains open using the second account even though you're playing the game with your main account. The downside is that this only works while your pad's in range of the PS4, obviously, while you can otherwise play further away, or even over the internet.
