  1. Formula One - 2018 Season

    I dunno, Lewis did seem about 8 tenths faster than Seb at the end there when he had some clean air after running wide, and Red Bull also looked like they had a lot of pace of Ferarri at the same time. Never heard Seb so muted on the radio after a race win, I think he was a bit worried about their lack of race pace despite the result. Might be wrong though, they might have just been managing both situations.
  2. Formula One - 2018 Season

    Bottas's crash in qualifying meant Ferrari were able to let Seb go longer risk free. Bottas may well have got the win today if he'd have qualified top 3 or 4.
  3. Formula One - 2018 Season

    Shame Ferrari don't do Haas's pit stops as well.
  4. Formula One - 2018 Season

    I'm up! Please be good please be good please be good.
  5. Pokemon Go

    Leveled up to 38 in style by defeating MewTwo (my second EX raid) (thats the completed EX gym in the background )
  6. Pokemon Go

    Yeah sound advice but it's a question of whether I'll want to or not, 38 being the kind of soft cap. Dunno, will just see how the mood takes.
  7. Pokemon Go

    500k to go to 38, so should easily make it during this event. Not sure whether to concentrate on leveling at all after that to be honest, will see how I feel.
  8. Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Pure medievalism!

    Of course, yeah 100%. It's always up to whoever makes the game as to what they want to put in it, and that should never change. Definitely wouldn't like to stifle anyone's creative freedom . It was just the hypocrisy of the aggressive outlash at anyone who dared suggest non-white people in their game might not be a terrible idea, compared to them green lighting the inclusion of magical potions. Made me even more wary about the motives of the former. Anyway, this thread has definitely had its moments, but I've just read the utter shitshow that it the EG comments of the review and it made me appreciate rllmuk exists . I think overall (despite a couple of examples) most people have discussed the issues openly and respectfully, which is pretty cool. As for the rest of the Internet, I wish so much that people would understand that criticism and censorship (or saying something is wholly "bad", or saying people shouldn't enjoy it, or saying it shouldn't exist, or that it *has* to change, etc) aren't the same thing.
  9. Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Pure medievalism!

    I guess I meant to criticise the effects of the alchemy, yeah. Can't you brew a potion that allows you to see in the dark for 10 or something? Seems suspect to scream "historical accuracy" for some mechanics but not for others.
  10. Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Pure medievalism!

    This thread has become a microcosm of the GamerGate debate (without the abuse, obviously) a little - though I admit I have skimmed it a bit to catch up. On the one hand people are misconstruing criticism for telling people what they should consume as entertainment, and on the other people being far too aggressive towards others for consuming something despite the flaws. I think for me personally, as soon as I read that the game included alchemy I became less interested. How can you argue so fervently towards historical accuracy on some issues (depiction of women, non-inclusion of non-white people) but not others. Seems very hypocritical.
  11. Where Mario Kart Went Wrong

    I like you're long and detailed argument, though I don't agree with it all. But this is just plain wrong. 200cc on MK8 is very fast. Certainly as fast as SMK. Have you tried to race user uploaded ghosts on 200cc Time Trial? There is a very high skill ceiling too.
  12. Kingdom Come: Deliverance - Pure medievalism!

    @Tourist Yeah well said. His feelings are understandable in places, but he doesn't seem to be able to express them without being super aggressive and combative. Without attacking other people in the way that he feels attacked. I guess people have tried to get him to understand that no one's trying to censor him, and that criticism isn't an attack it's a discussion, but it would probably be hard to get through. Like @Talk Show Host says, it's important to remember that a hell of a lot of people worked on the game, and they are probably mostly all fairly nice, non-troubled people. Anyway, on the game itself, impressions largely seem positive. Will wait to read a couple of reviews but I think I will take the plunge at some point. I do love the enthusiasm for history and accuracy that appears to have largely driven the game, even if it is misguided in places.
  13. Pokemon Go

    It is yeah, kinda. Especially the level 4 Absol which you can't solo. You have to be super lucky to find people to do Absol raids with you, even in the big discord/whatsapp groups in the cities. But I expect they'll make them available via another means eventually. As much as Niantic love money grabbing schemes, they do tend to give most pokemon a period of popular spawns or hatches eventually.
  14. Pokemon Go

    Yeah I do this too, ever since Gen 1 where I ended up with a bunch of Level 20 high IV pokemon that I couldn't afford to use stardust on and were useless for raids or attacking or anything, other than being trophies. If I think a species is worthy of stardust I'll go with IV, but for everything else I'll just take the highest CP. Worrying about having 100%s of everything seems way to stressful.
  15. Pokemon Go

    Nope, you're still good (though this is Gen 3 by the way ). Absol and Mawile can still be found in raids, and everything else can be got in the wild (legendaries excepted). Though this is the last day of Kyogre, I believe, if that's what you meant.
