    Nintendo Switch

    The 'pro controller' arrived today. Ridiculously pleased with the whole process and the unit - took 10 days to arrive, and it's nice and weighty. Decals(?) on the translucent part of the controller are nice and sharp, although not entirely sure they'll the official drawings. I got the Splatoon one. Paired instantly, and as a nice touch, the Switch recognised it was the controller with the green and pink handles if you had any reservations, go for it, great value. Seriously tempted to get another one just for when people come over - the SSBU edition one has my eye...

    Just jumped on this bandwagon. Hoping it arrives in the 2-3 weeks you've experienced. Small PSA: When I tried to order one, Aliexpress had sneakily tried to bump my order up to 4 units.. Had to switch to 'full page' payment, and reduce the number in my basket.
  3. Is there anywhere better to ask for hardware photography recommendations? Looking for a new camera and would like some advice! What can I get for the £400-500 mark, new or used, for a sharp travel photography camera? Since it'll be used when I'm abroad/not around my home, I'd like something fairly compact, m4/3 size, so would prefer something other than a full size DSLR. Looking for something that'll give me nice landscapes mainly. Already have a Ricoh GRII, but finding the AF is pretty sluggish when I want a close up, and don't want another point and shoot. I'm considering a Fujifilm X100T, as the size is perfect and the sample images I've seen look amazing, but the only downside seems to be it's yet another fixed lens, so would appreciate any suggestions! EDIT: Would also like an EVF.

    Been wanting a Switch for a few months now, but can't believe how much a second hand/faulty (so that I can buy parts and build it back up) Switch is on eBay/refurb websites. RRP is c. £250, but a refurb unit is £210, and broken Switches with all accessories go for £150-200 on eBay from the ones I've seen. Seriously impressive for a console that is two years old!

    Top Gear

    End of an era indeed. I can't imagine Chris Evans ever putting penis alloys on whatever car he might drive.

    For those that don't follow JC on twitter, looks like hes back on the TG test track if I'm not mistaken That golden covered table really reminds me of those episodes when they had a blank star in a reasonably priced car leaderboard so they had to bring loads of 'stars' together for an afternoon to fill it in. Basically was a license for hammond to prat around more than usual. I really hope I'm wrong.

    Doctor Who

    The first thing that came into my mind when trying to review this episode was when capaldi takes a drink from the coffee cup and goes, "Mmm!"; was that a pulp fiction Mr Wolf reference?

    Doctor Who

    This is pretty much exactly how I felt. It felt a little like a Russell t Davies directed episode, where it looked a lot more cartoony and less like the Matt smith ones which looked way better in terms of the set and lighting; I can't really describe it but if you watch even a minute of a Martha jones and tennant clip and then a Gillan and Smith clip the latter feels a lot more cinematic? Will be interested to see how Capaldi interacts with the daleks next episode but all I remember was after the eleventh hour and even DT's opening episode I was immediately sold as them being the Doctor. It's a real shame I can't really same the for PC.
  9. I've spoilered this but not really sure why I've done so. Maybe don't look if you want to be frightened when you see the Mountain:
  10. I saw this before I saw the episode: I'm glad to say they aren't proper friends of mine.

    This is Hip-Hop.

    The RZA discs have been on all day for me - big thanks for these!

    This is Hip-Hop.

    Somewhat off topic, but what kind of stuff is that Alicia Myers track that they've used in terms of genre? I always find myself discovering old soul(?)/motown(?) songs from hip hop, but i'd love to find more of this kinda of music from not just hearing them on samples.
  13. Big up OP for introducing me to that album. It's immense. For me its Camera Obscura's Lets Get Out Of This Country. The leads voice is the most soothing shit ever. And this from their newest album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUbfk8WGWkc With the vocals, the song just mushes together beautifully

    Mayer Hawthorne

    For me his albums always hugely disappoint. The first/opening songs are always incredible, like back seat lover and get to know you on 'how do you do' few years back, but then the rest of the album never really lives up to that. I'll give it another listen, but i seem to find he has a couple of great songs, and i find myself wishing that the rest of the album was more like that.

    Top Gear

    I haven't laughed that hard at top gear in a while when they drove straight into the water at attempt #1 and water filled up the cabin, and then you just saw that nutri grain wrapper floating around Also, that blondes midriff in the Hugh jackman interview.
