  1. Okay then, just saying that it was said about the people choosing to play the game. Was kind of inferred that it hadn't been after she scarpered is all.
  2. Nah, Rikku's right, they got called vile cunts - she did say 'and the thread in OT' where the following was posted (I don't know how to directly quote across threads/boards).
  3. Or ya know, saying they’re supporting genocide. Perhaps there should be an official ‘muk spreadsheet of members caught playing this game so they can be properly ostracised as the genocidal maniacs they are. Feel free to wipe me from any friend lists too since even though I have zero interest in this, and agree entirely that Rowling’s a transphobic astrocunt, I feel that some of the reactions in this thread are beyond fucking barmy. Witch hunt indeed.
  4. Pretty sure the first time I played with you was in this. I was pally with Takizawa and he brought me over to join a little bunch of you that were waiting to group up for a werewolf boss or something. I think maybe Sie and Karth were there too - the Destiny bunch - but my memory is hazy. What I do remember clearly though, is getting bored of waiting and running off to kill a few trash enemies and inadvertently pulling the boss into the group before they were ready…and the bollocking I got. Nice to meet you all! 😅 I might have the wrong game but I’m 75% sure it was this. I’ve dipped in and out a lot over the years, and always enjoyed it when I’ve played. It’s such a solid experience, well produced, but I always find it a little dry and lose interest after a few months. Been a couple of expansions since I last jumped in though and I’m feeling the itch to bust out Gazes at Weasels again, and do some leaning against a wall flipping coins. This game has the best MMO emotes bar none.
  5. What an absolutely harrowing time that was. Sickening stuff, and it really puts into perspective the shit that still goes on over there now. Daniel Kaluuya and LaKieth Stanfield did an outstanding job in this. Such a good film, and it’s very pleasing to think about how much it must rile the Facebook gammons when something like this is released.
  6. Judas and the Black Messiah - Prime An eye opening film charting the run up to the US government sanctioned murder of Fred Hampton, the leader of the Illinois chapter of The Black Panthers. A subject I don’t know anywhere near enough about. Fantastic performances all around, and a gripping true life tale. Amazing soundtrack too. 4/5 Trees Lounge - Prime Freevee A meandering, relaxed character piece about a New York deadbeat played brilliantly by Steve Buscemi, and his barfly acquaintances. A perpetual loser that makes poor decision after poor decision, who’s played so sympathetically you can’t help but feel for him. One of those films that doesn’t really say anything or go anywhere but is thoroughly enjoyable all the same. A character study about normal, flawed, working class people centred around the titular Trees Lounge bar. Very good indeed. And lean, at a gnats bollock over 90 minutes. 4/5 again Prime is doing solid work.
  7. Suicide Kings - Prime Freevee This is a weird one. Tonally, it’s very strange. It follows the aftermath of a bunch of rich frat boys kidnapping a New York mob boss to pay off a ransom. It’s got a weird TV movie sheen about it that belies its low budget, lots of slow mo emphasis shots with the soundtrack reaching a crescendo…it’s soap opera stuff. The story itself is preposterous, doing the twist on a twist on a twist thing to make it seem clevererer than it is when none of it makes a lick of sense from the outset. But, but, but, I enjoyed it anyway. There’s some good acting in there which carries it, especially from Christopher Walken and Dennis Leary (which is obviously where the spends went), and without really spoiling anything, there isn’t a happy ending, so at least it’s brave enough to follow through on that. I think there’s some prime Walkenosity in there actually, and so ymmv depending on how much of a kick you get out of seeing him acting rings around a young cast and a daft story. 3/5, probably dock a mark if you’re not that arsed about Walken.
  8. That’s been on my watch list for yonks, I’m an absolute sucker for crappy fantasy films. I love stuff like The Beastmaster, Hawk the Slayer and Krull. Must get on Deathstalker! You’re absolutely right, Prime is great for films like these. What I haven’t checked it for is all the terrible 80s ninja and kung fu films from Joseph Lai and Godfrey Ho. There used to be a great selection of them on Netflix but last time I looked most of them had gone. Edit - Just had a look and there are quite a lot of them on Prime. The Sho Kusogi classic, Revenge of the Ninja is there, pleasingly! And legendarily crappy classic, Ninja Terminator. Unfortunately, most of the American Ninja films need an MGM sub but number 5 is there, never seen that one - on the list ye go.
  9. I unlocked the Song of Mana weapon last night. That thing is fucking awesome! Haven’t found how to evolve it yet but I can’t wait to see that shit roided up.
  10. This is one of those films, along with the likes of Maniac Cop and American Ninja, where the cover of the VHS will be forever etched in my mind thanks to picking it up to look at it every…single…time…my parents took me to the local video rental shop. Never watched it, but after that write up I’m super tempted. You make it sound superb!
  11. Mad Max plays perfectly on Decko and looks amazing too! Some of the best skyboxes to this day.
  12. I love this guy. We’re best pals now, whether you like it or not.
  13. Split Second - Prime I hope you’ve got a decent pair of wellies because it’s the 2008 of the future and due to global warming half of London is underwater, rats are running rampant in the streets, and there’s a serial killer on the loose. Only Rutger Hauer is man enough to clean up this mess as police officer Harley Stone, with his trusty sidekick, detective Dick Durkin and his girlfriend played by a smoking hot Kim Cattrall. This is tremendous 90’s budget sci-fi/monster B-Movie hokum. Everyone involved is hamming it up and having a whale of a time in the process. It’s chock full of cheesy one liners and tons of familiar faces like Alun Armstrong, Pete Postlethwaite and a young Jason Watkins in a tiny role. 90 minutes of great fun. 4/5
  14. I had my first experience of outright battery destruction today with Risk of Rain 2. It defaulted to high/ultra at 60fps so I just left it at that without giving it any thought since it ran mostly well. It emptied 75% of the battery in about an hour!
