  1. I think everyone said frequency was best. But amplitude was way better. Looked nicer. Better music. And it made sense being able to hammer left or right to go to one end or the other, I would overshoot more with an infinite circle more than I'd save time by being able to go either direction.
  2. Me too. It's such a tease, that post. Just 24 hours of not knowing what it is but knowing it's now ONLY TWO QUID has made it my most anticipated game of the year. The hype train is so strong. I have absolutely no idea what kind of game it is.
  3. We're very lucky to have it so locally. It's good for spices and dried things because it's local enough we can pop down to get just what we actually wanted for a recipe, rather than buying a kg. Its not particularly cheaper, mind. Because I guess it's also fancy organic stuff but also good quality and less waste for our own bins.
  4. Oh since the post I bought a six pack of those sauce bottles from Nisbets and let me tell you it was a great purchase. We have a refills shop down the road so I actually use one for showergel I can buy without wasting more single use plastic. But I also put different oils in and thryre great for finishing a salad or just going a little easier on oil when cooking. It's also great to fill them up with ingredients for dressing and to then add as you like on a salad. Or dollop mayo and tomato sauce for a quick Marie Rose sauce to keep in the fridge.
  5. With bacon though it doesn't technically have to be carcinogenic, right? It’s the nitrites that do it, and they are added just to prevent botulism? I think I read somewhere that if the pork is reared well, healthy, clean etc it doesn’t need that. Just salting it is ok. But you have to know what you’re getting. So in terms of cutting it down that's what I am hoping to do. Not necessarily being strict but just cutting down and trying to buy smarter. I wouldn't refuse anything in a nice restaurant though.
  6. On a more positive note. I remember when the dreamcast hype train was in full force... at least it was for me and my best friend. buying any magazine with new info. getting absolutely psyched for it. I remember waiting for about 40 minutes to download a 30 second postage stamp sized video of sonic adventure but still being wowed by the graphics. Then day wandering into the indie games shop to find that they had a Japanese import. live in the flesh. running Tokyo highway battle or whatever it was called. we'd hyped ourselves so much for this console that it was like spotting a celebrity or something, I was star struck. So I guess despite lots of stories of poor personal hygiene and petty theft, there could be something wonderful about a games shop and games discovery that has gone with high res YouTube videos
  7. I absolutely hate when games make it impossible to save whenever you need. I want all the challenge of the game to be in the gameplay, and not based around how long I can play in one single session for. By all means put some limiter on. I get that some pc games with quick save and quick reload keys basically meant you could cheese anything. Or get into a bad habit of only accepting perfect play. But I think being unable to suspend a game within reasonable limits is just design arrogance. It's a pastime not an actual job, and I have a life outside of it. Maybe it's dinner time or whatever, a game shouldn't be stressful because you're being rude to other real human beings by telling them you can't stop playing. It's not a deal breaker but, for example in something like yakuza like a dragon in the dungeons. Why not allow save? If you can achieve the same effect by hitting pause and leaving the game running for a week that's no different to allowing save points. It feels like old fashioned game design, you can throw back to old school rpgs without that part. Anyway. Xbox quick resume did fix this thankfully so this weird artificial difficulty gets overridden by the console itself. Back to the op I do feel like I can't play anything for too long at a time. But I often want to play a different kind of game to have a break rather than stop

    Coffee

    Pricey but square mile decaff is good. Really good. If its for two weeks, I'd say push the boat out! It's an espresso roast so should be comparable to whatever 5 means. I bought some when I got my new coffee machine so I could enjoy evening espresso, eg after a meal. https://shop.squaremilecoffee.com/products/decaf-espresso
  9. 2012 is the year I left Reading to live in London so I imagine that had something to do with it also
  10. I really like Reading’s new kit. I am actually from Reading, though was never a Reading supporter (got into football since leaving the town) but, yeah, it’s nice. When a team has such a distinctive tradition with their kit, eg, black and white stripes, or blue hoops, it feels like you can’t do much with it. But the sleeves here prove otherwise. They are Reading’s climate stripes, they’re working with Reading Uni, which is nice too.
  11. Rare situation where the sponsor actually sorta improves it. Little pop of colour, as Tan France would say
  12. Paradise killer is great. Quite a lot of semi aimless exploring but I did enjoy that. But piecing the crimes together was brilliant. Strictly speaking tales of the obra dinn isn't quite as you said... You're not really talking to people but it's 100% deduction from the clues in front of you, piecing together a story. It's also brilliant
  13. After watching France and thinking "oh shit based on our performance they're going to run rings around us"... But now I'm thinking bring it on!
  14. This looks great. I hate the timing idea though. I like turn based often because I want to relax, play with menus and not deal with twitchy gaming. It adds nothing. I don't know why developers do it. Still it wouldn't put me off, obviously.
  15. How about a squirrel sim. Basically it's just a reskinned mirrors edge. Get nuts. Fuck up peoples gardens. Dodge cats.
