    I don't know where else is best to ask this but:


    I see both the PC ports of the Sony Spiderman games are currently on sale on CD Keys. I'm tempted, but I only really want to get one, so should I go for Spiderman Remastered or Miles Morales?


    I've not played either, but I noticed this in my RPS feed today:

    It's more that the game ls haven't changed in a quarter of a century. The trading mechanics are basically same as day one.


    That's not just a disappointing sentiment, it's also objectively incorrect. I might not know my Evees from my EVs, but even I know that there are new features. Bank, Home, Go, have all changed what's possible since the days of using a link cable in a playground.

    Anyone else got questions the answer to which have more-or-less been the same for the past 25 years?


    Sorry for asking :(


    I wasn't sure, with the advent of online gaming, paid subscription accounts, and mobile gaming, what to expect. Cleary fan attitudes haven't moved on in a quarter of a century.

  4. Since starting this new season, I've found myself enjoying this a lot more. Helps that I'm winning more often than not, although I'm sure that'll change soon enough.


    Here's my current favourite deck, requiring no Pool 3 cards. It's a fairly standard "destroy" deck with a few tweaks of my own. You'd think that Squirrel Girl wouldn't fit alongside Killmonger, but she pairs well enough with Bishop, Carnage, and Nova to merit her inclusion. She's also useful for establishing presence in lanes with effects that make it difficult to play in directly. Due to the focus on destroying cards, Warpath is very strong if you can keep one lane empty, which is also why I've thrown in Klaw, with his ability to assist from a neighbouring lane. Hulk might not be very inspiring, but at least he's consistent, and there aren't really any other 6 drops available to me that would be a stronger choice with the effects in this deck.


    If it has one problem, it's that it has a slightly wonky cost curve, ocassionally proving difficult to make efficient plays on turn 4. I'm thinking of swapping one of the 3 drops (Bishop, most likely) for a 2, but haven't found a candidate I like yet.

  5. Losing a dozen games in a row due to RNG bullshit or guessing 50/50 plays wrong would be frustrating in any game, but there's something about losing in Snap that makes me especially salty. I've been stuck in the low 40s for over a week now, I'm not sure I have what it takes to push into the higher ranks.

  6. Netflix only has the first season, I wasn't aware there was more T&B! I really enjoyed it, so learning that there are two more seasons but that's all there will ever be is bittersweet news.

  7. I like Stone Ocean. JJBA has always had an interesting stance on machismo and masculinity, so it almost makes perfect sense that it should have a series set in a women's prison.


    After Golden Wind I appreciate the smaller, more focused cast, and the battles are amongst some of the most interesting so far. JAIL HOUSE LOCK was a particular stand out, even if the resolution to that conflict was ridiculously convoluted.

    "Precious Cargo" in S2 of Enterprise is probably in the 5 worst Trek episodes ever made, it's spectacularly bad. Then there's the infamous final episode which is a complete misfire, just on a conceptual level. There's nothing else in the show that is as bad as those two, though.


    I guess I consider the series finale to be a panic move, made in a rush when the decision came to axe the show. Precious Cargo though, I don't have any excuses for that. You're right, it's awful. Was that one of the scripts they'd recycled from the original series? But even in the 60s it had no place in Star Trek.

  9. Like most Treks, it takes a couple of series to find its feet, but it never reaches the highs of TNG or DS9. I don't remember any of the episodes being amongst the very worst of Trek, but it's more consistently mediocre. I don't know whether it's Bakula's fault, the writers, or the directors, but Archer's character was all over the place to begin with, and even when it settled he just wasn't very good.

  10. Retroarch is a customisable software wrapper for many different emulators. It has many different "cores" which are the emulators themselves, allowing you to use a single piece of software to launch games from different platforms.


    Emudeck is a script which integrates Retroarch (and other emulators/wrappers) into the SteamOS experience, allowing you to create entries in your steam library to launch specific emulated games.

  11. I've encountered exactly zero compatibility issues so far. The only difficulties I've encountered are trying to play very old mouse-driven games using a controller layout, and that's just because I haven't fully got to grips with Steam Input yet.


    With the level of support SteamOS has, and the availability of XCloud, I have no idea why you'd want to go throught he faff of installing Windows on this thing.
