  1. Is there any indication about what price that's going to launch at?
  2. *Raises hand* I've got a question. I've only played Vanilla FF7, and bounced off the extended story the moment I finished Advent Children. I saw the trailers for everything announced today... Who the feck is Zack? Zack to me, is a man who finished his story before 7 even started. Why am I seeing almost more of him than Cloud now? OH... And what the hell is going on in the "remake"?
  3. Yup, and it's now more like a fruit machine than ever.
  4. Looking for a quick bit of advice. The missus has someone at work selling this for charity for £100: Now, I've not been keeping an eye on prices, how does that line up with the current value of them? Given it's for charity, I'm not going to haggle too much, but very much considering it. Just making sure the price isn't too high.
  5. I'm really looking forward getting mine (Whenever that may be, I put a reservation in on day one, but I'm an "After Q2" person, unfortunately.) But I'm so excited for it. The size is perfect, as it's about the same size as the switch with the Hori split pro pad on it, which is what I've been exclusively using my switch with.
  6. That's no where near as bad as I feared it would be. I've been holding Eureka off at Arms length for fear how long it will take.
  7. Cool, we've currently got an Unknown ETA for switches in the NHS. Same thing for iPads, and our framework distributor for laptops has an 8 month ETA (And yet somehow, they won the contract again). I just wanted to vent.
  8. Having just done the 83 trial... yeah, hah. I had my thoughts about how this story was going to plan out, and I don't think any of us had this on their bingo cards.
  9. Don't forget Cordell and Cordell. Got a wife you want to get rid of? She thinks that looking after the kids and sacrificing her career while you were making millions in the banking industry entitles her to even a penny! Cordell and Cordell will make sure she doesn't get an ounce, so you can focus on upgrading to a newer model.
  10. Can anyone actually describe the political view of M. Nawaz? Unless it’s about extremist factions, his political compass is going to bore through the earth if it swings any faster.
  11. Just watched the first couple of eps, and my initial opinions were also "This is just Kaiji".
  12. He has thankfully, the pandemic in general made him sway from one extreme to the other for some reason. Towards the beginning he was afraid to even consider stepping outside his home and was bleaching everything to the point of paranoia. There's being vigilant, but it did feel he was taking it too far. The toll was having a massive effect on the quality of his show as well. But as we're currently in prime "What the hell are the people running this country doing without being challenged" season, it's great listening again.
  13. Nick Abbot (Friday-Sunday 10pm to 1am) is one of my favorite radio shows to listen to. To hear a fairly sensible person deal with the kind of person who rings up a talk radio station in the twilight hours is constantly entertaining. The whole show is like a panto at this point.
  14. To be fair, it was accompanied by a ... 6 and a half hour "Live letter" going through all the changes. And some how, town teleportation maps got far more time than SCH news.
  15. My parents used to own a pub, and with it, a fruit machine. That thing infatuated me, and over the course of watching it while working, I came to a lot of realisations that are being stated in this tread. On the front of the machine, in very readable writing, it states that the machine WILL take 30% of whatever is put into it. I quickly came to see that you were playing against the person who had played before you if you were looking to make any money. I will admit, when I closed the pub, and had saw someone pump a fair bit of money in before close, I did stick a few quid in and often came out for the better. But I started to see when it was setting me up for a fix. There was a higher or lower game on it with numbers between 1 and 12. I first noticed that 3 and 10 would appear more than any other numbers on the board. And fairly often a 3 would lead to a 1, and 10 to 12. I also started to notice the amount of time the machine would take to land on 3 or 10 would vary greatly. To make it look like it had naturally rolled on to one of these numbers, it was over compensating by doing 1 or 2 more full revolutions of the wheel before landing on those numbers. The fruity went so far out of its way to make it look natural and unlucky, that I started to see the con from a mile away. Thanks to those in this thread, for confirming my suspicions. It's why I never touched a "high payout" machine. To get to the jackpot in question would take the losses of so many people before it could even think of paying it out, it was never worth putting a single pound on it.
  16. As long as no one has retooled this reboot to be some weird celebrity vehicle (Bloody looking at you, catchphrase) for the usual F-List British celebs, I'm in for this.
