  1. Finished this up last night, I honestly though there would be another Act:



    The retread of the boss was dumb, I never felt things were threatened and what happened to the rest of the army we drove through? I doubt the HoD would have got them all.

    I killed JD, I really didn't like his 'meh killed protestors but I'm fine now, I assumed there would be a plot twist like he was a COG plant (where did the storyline go about him asking  Del to take out Kait - was that a locust vision lie?)

    Overall this was far, far better than 4 - I wonder how they will choose who's death becomes cannon.

    Yeah, it’s a bit crap* isn’t it? Reminds me of that Star Wars one from a few years back. 

    I keep getting matched with guys with much bigger and better decks 



    *though I’m still playing it. 


    It gets easier once you work your way through the first few levels and unlock a couple of slots and some upgraded cards.

    Some of you may already know this so apolgies in advance but Games Workshop brought out Warhammer 40K Combat Cards on mobile phones.

    I’ve got this it’s not bad but strategy doesn’t come into it so far. I’m at level nine, it would be nice if you could add friends but that doesn’t seem to be a Feature just yet.

    I'm not too worried about salt. I don't have any blood pressure issues. 


    I try and avoid sugar when cooking at home. 


    I don't mind a teaspoon but after that then I wonder what it's making up for. 


    My deep fryer should arrive today. Asked the falafel guys that I go to at lunchtime about their recipe and I need a good fluffy soft flatbread recipe and we're golden. 


    Its making up for a lack of fats, food, if it originally featured fats, tase worse for the lack of it. The common solution is to add sugar to replace it, see low fat yogurts etc. 

  5. I’ve not had an Android device for a long time, one should be arriving next week and I’m keen to see how the emulation scene has improved. 


    Looking at Reicast and Yabuse Sanshiro for DC and Saturn, Reicast looks good but has anyone used Yabuse? 


    I have a bunch of real Saturn games that i can make ISO’s from but the DC will be more difficult to do. 

  6. Looks lush, how do you get the crust on a brisket? 


    I managed to sort the BBQ issue, cleared the augur by 'clearing' and priming it a bunch of times to force through some half burnt pellets, @Shimmyhill I tried those new pellets you recommended, very good - much improved flavor.


    With the traeger, being that the fan generates some noise means that I will need to create a BBQ section at the end of the garden if I want to do a 24 hour smoke.

  7. So where to start. My son had a crappy night. So he joined me for getting the bbq ready. Got all switched on and ready to go and realised next doors bedroom window (near the bbq) was open so decided to move the bbq to the end of the garden to avoid smoke/noise. 


    Not an easy thing to do when carrying a baby that cries when you put him down and the bbq weighs 100kg. 


    Got that sorted and plugged in, the bbq is smoking like a chimney and the breeze is blowing straight into my neighbours window. Grab Austin and run upstairs grab fan plug in and sort that issue. 


    Temp of the bbq is going up faster than expected, yank off grill grate and moving the bbq has dislodged a bunch of pellets which have now all ignited in the firebox. 

    Chuck Son to Wife (promptly waking up Daughter in the process). 


    Turn off bbq remove pellets from firebox. Set manual temp. Then start the recipe again which then seems to develop an issue about 20 mins in and fails to maintain a flame, low temp warning and ignition errors. 


    Attempt to Empty pellets from
    Hopper and a bunch fall onto the floor. 

    At this point I abandon ship and whack it in the oven. 


    I suspect the augur isn’t being fed properly. When it’s a little later in the morning I’m going to clear out the hopper completely and see if I can sort it.


    I said to my daughter I had a bad start to the day “did you set the bbq on fire again daddy?” I nodded. “Don’t worry we all make mistakes” she replied.
