  1. You can get into a sort of meditative state while playing (or, I did in the last one). It's like knitting.
  2. Easy choice! My problem is I don't enjoy first person perspective. I really dislike the feel of moving a crosshair around the centre of the screen and aiming, especially with a controller. I much prefer to be in control of a character or avatar that I can see in front of me. There are tons of really high quality western games, but a high proportion of them - US made games in particular - put you in control of the first person camera, aiming cross-hair, so I pass on most of these games, even though I'm missing out on some great, well made games. The Japanese ma
  3. Yeah, I had this problem a bit. I guess Korean is quite a fast language? You've just got to read faster, I guess. Git gud.
  4. We've got the 1hr 30min season 1 finale to watch tonight. I'm very excited!
  5. I presume this is from a book, and I might have this a bit garbled, but I remember one from Arthur Baker, who produced Confusion and Thieves Like Us with them. He thought they had a #1 on hit on their hands with Thieves Like Us. The band insisted that there was a full instrumental verse and chorus before the first verse vocal came in. He told them it wouldn't get any radio play if they didn't start with the first verse, and that they were crazy. The band did it their way. It wasn't a #1 hit.
  6. Magic! Had my double CD of this nicked in an office break in, in the 90s, and never been able to replace it.
  7. I absolutely love this film. but I hate that low frame rate stuff. It just doesn't work on me. It doesn't make him look untrained, it doesn't make the animation feel 'chunky', it just looks like the frame rate has dropped on some of the animation. To me anyway. But, I've spent most of my life making video games, and being super-sensitive to differences in frame rate, and I always want a higher frame rate.
  8. My point was short weekly episodes are no impediment to a deep story. Only having a small number of such episodes could well be, but the weekly format itself is fine.
  9. How does the weekly format stop a story having depth? Charles Dickens wrote most of his novels this way.
  10. You can just stop watching an episode and come back the next day...
  11. Really enjoying Stranger, a Korean police procedural with a whiff of Sherlock Holmes (the main character is super clever, and not very emotionally engaged, and has almost super-powered imaginative abilities at times). The episode are quite long - 70 minutes or so each - and the plot is quite complicated. We got about 5 episodes in, and I thought I'd look how many episodes were left. There are 16 episodes in a season! And there's a second season too. Great if you want to get really into a long show. Also, the system over there seems to be a prosecutor's office who in
  12. I've not seen the TV series as it's not popped up on any streaming services I have yet, but does it end the same way as the book?
  13. Not a regular Meg reader, but wanted to jump on with the previous issue, as it looked really good. I went into my local WHSmiths on the day it came out, and they had no copies. I'm told it instantly sold out
