  1. I don't think there's much more to say about it after the series finalé info dump. It doesn't really change anything, other than giving the Doctor a specific reason for feeling different and I guess opening the door for some more pre-Hartnell surprise Doctors. RTD Who was always more interested in elevating the importance of ordinary people rather than making the Doctor out to be something more than they are, so yes I think it will be largely ignored.
  2. They released a swear compilation on Twitter in response.
  3. Maybe, but It's been over a decade since he was last involved and has surely grown as a showrunner and writer in that time. At the same time he's proved that he is indeed a safe pair of hands, and one that has proven that he can bring out the best in other writers too. I'm really excited anyway.
  4. Wow. That came out of nowhere, but for all his faults he was by far the best showrunner Who's had since it came back.
  5. I doubt Boyega will be back. I think he said something a while ago along the lines of not wanting anything to do with Star Wars going forwards.
  6. 15/09/2021 - The Artful Escape I loved the look of this since the first trailer, but wasn't sure exactly what to expect. The theme was obvious, but the trailer made it look like more of a platformer than it really was. There is some platforming, but it's incredibly simple and used to flesh out what's otherwise something closer to a walking sim. That said, it was still an absolutely amazing experience. The music married up so well with the visual fireworks that accompanied it, managing to make me feel really cool at the same time. I even got quite invested in the story, slight as it was, helped by some excellent voice acting. I mentioned in the thread that the story felt like Bill and Ted written by Douglas Adams, by way of Sayonara Wild Hearts, and I think that describes the experience pretty well. At least, it does if you don't expect the wit of the actual Douglas Adams. The only slight blemish came from a weird performance issue on PC, where a couple of locations sent the framerate tanking for no obvious reason. The devs are apparently working on a patch, and I found a manual hotfix that sorted it for me just in time for the final section. I'm already looking forward to playing through the whole thing again in silky smooth perfection.
  7. The list has been acknowledged by Nvidia as "legit" in so far as it was taken from their servers, but claim some of the titles are just "speculative" and "used only for internal tracking and testing". https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-09-14-nvidia-acknowledges-leaked-pc-game-list-including-god-of-war-and-final-fantasy-7-remake So I guess some of it is probably real.
  8. I'm about halfway through, but I don't want this to end. It's glorious. It always looked good from the trailers, but I wasn't expecting it to be quite this good. People have said it already, but it does feel like Bill and Ted written by Douglas Adams by way of Sayonara Wild Hearts.
  9. I really enjoyed this week's. Some nice development among all the lower deckers, and a daft but fun plot to go with it. Also more heart than all of Discovery combined.
  10. You can grab the PC version for a lot less on CDKeys. The Deluxe edition is "only" £45, with the regular version at £28. I think the deluxe one has an exclusive episode again though, annoyingly.
  11. I'm sure there will be some explanation where their method of time travel is a one shot deal. Everyone will have conveniently forgotten about slingshotting round the sun because Spock told Starfleet never to tell anyone.
  12. This came up a while ago, and no xCloud doesn't require 5GHz WiFi. I can confirm this as my home wifi 2.4 and 5GHz networks can't be split (with the BT router I'm using at least), and more than once I've found myself playing with poor performance, checked and found my phone's connected to the 2.4GHz connection. It might require 5GHz for decent performance, but it certainly doesn't require it to work.
  13. Heh. I can't really say without giving away where I work, but it's graphical training software involving multiple vehicles and stuff. It certainly doesn't look like it requires a 2060 Super though, let alone a 3090.
  14. The training department at my workplace bought themselves no less than three prebuilt HP Omen desktops recently, packing a 3090 each. I was actually quite impressed with the builds, although at around £3,000 each you'd bloody hope they were good. As far as I'm aware though, they were bought to run training software with a recommended spec of a 2060 Super. On 1440p monitors, which were an upgrade from the 1080p screens they were going to use. I should add that we were only involved in buying the hardware using their budget, and had no say in the choice, as they're obviously ludicrously, hilariously overkill. I did suggest that we could probably sell the cards, replace them with something much more suitable and probably end end up getting the lot for "free".
  15. Yeah the magazine anecdotes are part of the appeal, surely? It's called "The Back Page", with the description of the two hosts "talking about video games and their years covering them professionally". Wishing away the anecdotes is wishing away half the point.

    Chvrches

    It's definitely a grower, this. I think it might be their most consistent album so far, as as much as I like Bones I think that album has more of a gap in quality between the best and worst tracks. There's nothing in Screen Violence that I think I'd want to skip. I'm glad Chvrches are trying different things too. I wasn't a big fan of Love is Dead, but both that and Screen Violence are quite different from their first two albums.
  17. You don't need a guide for Myst, but it does expect you to be incredibly thorough in exploring the world. All those books in the library? You need to read them, or at least flick through to the diagrams and stuff. You also need to take a lot of notes, and occasionally draw maps. It's not for everyone, but can be really rewarding. It was originally static screens, combined with borderless video for animations. This is actually the second 3D version to be released I think, third if you include the remastered version of realMyst.
  18. I've been listening to The Back Page for a while now too, and like it so much that I've started listening to the earlier ones too. It became my favourite podcast more or less instantly. Their enthusiasm is definitely infectious. The Phoenix Wright episode got me playing the Trilogy on the Switch, which I'd been meaning to play for a while.
  19. I played up until arriving at the hub a couple of days ago, didn't think too much of it and put it aside. I went back to it today though and I'm absolutely loving it. I did play the original at some point, but while I liked it's style I thought it was a bit of a clunky platformer even then. The sequel has elevated the platforming to "solid", which is good enough to allow everything else to shine through.
  20. I'd bet that same phone would work brilliantly with Stadia or GeForce Now, or indeed local streaming. There's definitely something quirky about xCloud on phones compared to other services, which I've found to be way more consistent.
