    I found the sword fairly early on. I don't remember exactly but would say it took around 45 minutes or so of playing.
  2. I had a break of three weeks but had a go the other night, thinking I'd see what my new ranking would be. I was Gold 3 before, so pretty average. My first game (CTF) was a disaster. Previously, I might have a poor start but then get into it an make up for it overall. This game, I was on zero kills and about 8 deaths. No fun at all, so I quit, for only the second time ever. A crappy thing to do, I know. A few minutes later, I got a message saying 'I guess you're a pacifist, judging by your kd.' Harsh, but fair. I had no response so just deleted it . After that I had a game of slayer where one guy on the other team was running riot, got 20 kills before being killed himself. Not my best night on Halo.
  3. Prompted by this thread being bumped, I watched a few episodes last night, include the Sniffing Accountant:
  4. I re-watched them all last year, getting through the first four seasons pretty quickly but stalling after one or two episodes of S5. And I've not gone back. Before the re-watch, I'd have said S4 was the best, but S2 is incredible. I did a double-take when I saw Master Chief is being played by Pablo Schreiber (aka Nick Sobotka).
  5. Nope. "The vast majority of those disallowed words are gendered or racial slurs ("WENCH" is one of the only ones we're comfortable reprinting) or relate to potentially offensive topics ("SLAVE," "LYNCH"). Others are just foreign spellings (like "FIBRE") or outdated words (like "AGORA")."
  6. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2022/02/heres-how-the-new-york-times-changed-wordle/ "...changes so far have not been major, encompassing just 25 guessable words and seven daily answers."
  7. I've just finished watching the last couple of episodes of season 3. Absolutely brilliant, devastating TV. Up there with the absolute best. I liked the first season, but it took a while for me to get through it. But from the end of that season onwards I was getting through a couple of episodes a day. I just read the second half of this thread and saw a couple of comments lamenting that it didn't get the seven seasons that were planned. I can't help but think it was for the best that it wrapped up in three. Might be time to re-watch Watchmen.
  8. Maybe they could arrange a swap with the PS5 owners DESPERATE to sell their consoles now Microsoft is buying Call of Duty maker.
  9. I used my Switch Pro controller yesterday, it's only 6 weeks old, and the right thumbstick is making a creaking sound when moved. Is that a known issue, or something anyone else has experienced? I don't think anything has happened to it, it's just been in a cabinet when not being used.
  10. I'd originally thought it took too long, but now I think it's about right. There's a genuine risk/reward element to bringing people back currently. When I'm out of lives it's good to watch the remaining player/s - you can see when they try to revive someone when they shouldn't, i.e. there are opposing players around, and end up dying as a result. I'm really enjoying Attrition - the bite-size nature means I can keep coming back for more, even if I lose a few games in a row.
  11. I've noticed the fan on my Series X will turn on for a short period every now and then, even though it's in energy saving mode. It generally makes a very brief buzzing noise before it does. It works fine, there's no suggestion that anything is wrong with it, and it's done it for some time now, I was just wondering if this is standard.
  12. Wordle 207 3/6 Got lucky with the first two letters and took a punt on guess three.
  13. To anyone reading the above - do watch Succession, because it's amazing. But, for the love of god, do not go straight to season 3. The first two seasons are also on Now (for two weeks, by the look of it) and you'll be spoiling some amazing storylines/events by going straight to 3.
  14. Never speak to, or even acknowledge the existence of, your colleague ever again.
  15. My lovely horse Running through the stars Where are you going With your fetlocks blowing In the (solar) wind?
  16. I imagine it's a fairly high priority for Sony and Microsoft.
  17. I recognise Noel Edmonds, Bobby Ball, Dennis Quaid and Stan Laurel, but I'm not sure who the others are.
  18. Heroic run-through straight away, Legendary over Christmas
  19. Ditto. (I won't say how many attempts it took..)
  20. Am pretty sure that if you hit the wall after the final corner - before you cross the line - it flags the *next* lap as dirty. You can rewind, take the corner again, missing the wall, and the next lap starts clean.
  21. Oh god, this just reminded me of a CTF game I played last night. I got the flag and a teammate was waiting in a Warthog. Now I *think* you can get in the passenger seat holding the flag, right? I didn't realise that at the time, so the only thing I could think of doing in the heat of the moment was to jump onto the gun platform and try to balance on it as it drove off. Needless to say, it didn't work out. Absolute eejit. Glad I wasn't on voice chat.
  22. After having a sneaky game of ranked Slayer at lunchtime where I got absolutely schooled I'm now all in for never looking at my K/D ratio... Sometimes you have a game where you just can't catch a break.
  23. Yep, a good point. And there are definitely times when I'm happy to play a more supporting role, especially in Oddball or CTF.
