  1. Thought so grabbed them, will report back.
  2. I thought this was great, but I do love the first one mind you. I watched it again last week in preparation fully expecting not to watch it all the way through as I've seen it a bunch of times and found it flew by. I was a bit worried at the start of the sequel, the opening scenes were a bit fuzzy, I think the focus might have been off. And the family scenes had a worrying hokieness. But I was soon immersed in Pandora once again and glued to it till the end. The CG is spectacular, it's incredible, almost flawless. I would love to see it on the big iMax in 3d. The story was a bit samey and it's not without its flaws , and it skirts that cheesy hokieness line on a couple of occasions. But overall I loved it. I must say however I found that one protracted section really distressing and as a result am not sure I want to sit through it again. I was also expecting a couple of the story arcs to deliver more, but it's obviously being saved for the sequels. I thought they should have avoided the Overall I thought it was fantastic. An ok story , some great action and stunning visuals. Really looking forward to the next one.
  3. It finally happened Wordle 548 1/6 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  4. That being said , apparantly exfil streak perks are bugged and dont work 😕
  5. Its a mix of good and bad obviously. A pleasant suprise when you get a good group though. But the proximity chat is great, people begging for their lives, asking to be friends, shouting intel to their team mates. Really fun. reminds me of the old days in DayZ a bit.
  6. I'm still loving DMZ. I had a phase where I was getting very annoyed with the randoms. but I've found that just asking enemy teams to help or join up has changed the game for me. I've had two games in a row where my rando teammates have gone off in opposite directions and died, in the first one i see a lone guy driving by in a car and a shout "hey guy in the car , give me a lift to the exfil?" and he lets me hop on his car, when we get there he adds me to his group and off we go. In another game we get to the exfil site despite no comms and it turns into a 4 team fight, I get punted off a cliff by an armoured jeep and my squad mates die and quit, I self revive in a bush and just ask the winners if we can be friends, "Sure they" say, I come out from cover fully expecting to be excecutred , but no they add me to the group and give me some loot and off we exfil. I like the new exfil streak system as well. Im on a 4 streak atm and so have 4 perks to help out. Ive nearly done the teir 2 missions for the 1st two catagories, but some of the teir 3 ones seem to be getting a bit complicated. Like find a locked room in a specififc hotel and find a specififc gun. Feels like it might be starting to need a proper team effort to complete some of them.
  7. Here's my last game, had some real fun in here, though the ending is a bit weak. TLDR: PvP at 8 till 14 minues. Joined up with 2 randos. It didnt capture my voice in this, so you can't hear me talking to them , but they were unresponsive, only using pings to communicate so you are not missing much. We head off and have some battles with the AI that get pretty intense as we get towards the UAV tower. Once we trigger the UAV I notice some players (the solid dots on the HUD) and engage. This is about 8.00 minutes in so skip to there. I snipe a two man squad , the voices you hear are proximity chat , so its the enemy team But while Im distracted my two rnadom compadres are taken out by a third squad. I return and drop a bomb drone on them which gave me a proper chuckle, especially their reactions, Then start sniping them. But then they reactivate the UAV tower and the tables are turned its now a 3 v 1 hunt, and I am the prey, My teammates log off and im left to run and gun. I end up on an island sniping and down one and decide to flee. i wonder if I could have stuck around with the range advantage, but I wanted to Exfil. The rest is speeded up and not that interesting, just a couple of AI jumping me at the chopper site. Such good fun though!
  8. Some of the shit that goes down in DMZ is hilarious. I spawned in with two decent sounding guys and we helped each other do a couple of missions and shared information, they help me get 13 headshot with the revolver which is very kind of them. One of our squad runs off to get a nearby car and dies to another team. So we remaining two push in, I take a roof top and my compadre revives our downed buddy. At this point the team re-engagebut Ive got them flanked and have the high ground and take down the remaining two from above. Very satisfying. Now we are all geared up and they decide we should go for the weapons case. Ordinarliy this would be my moment to exfil but we were doing well, communicating and having fun so i thought why not lets do it. We head up the hill and very easily kill the juggernaut and grab the case. We hop back in our car and at this point we start taking heavy fire from across the canyon. We burn off acorss the bridge weaving madly getting lit up lmg fire from the other squad. Our driver opines that they will be following us to get the case as we round the corned heading for the Exfil zone. The plan is call in the chopper and assume defensive positions to kill our pursuers. We hurtle into the canyon towards the green smoke, unfortunalty there is a squad waiting for us. Two of us are downed instantly out of the vehicle in the crossfire , the vehicle coasts to a stop and our one remaning team memeber dives for cover. At this point the third sqaud show up, our team mate shouts for peace, kills the last of our ambushers who is IN the exfil helicopter and grabs the weapons case. Only to be shot in the back by another guy emerging from the cave behind him. 4 squads ? Absoloute carnage.
  9. I'm loving DMZ , sure it's hit and miss with randoms , but when it's good it's great fun. I'm levelling up guns I wouldn't touch, and having fun exploring and doing the missions. It can be frustrating but it's lightweight enough it's not too bothersome. Gotta know when to leave the randoms to die though !
  10. Its not a big deal I am really enjoying the show , just a minor niggle.
  11. Like everyone else I am loving this, the best Star Wars since the original trilogy without a doubt. It has kindled some interest in the franchise for me again. Of course Im sure those hopes will be dashed. That being said:
  12. I've taken a punt on this, I wasn't really enjoying it to begin with, somehting just feels .... off. And the menus are an abomination. No new flag on the weapon customisation screen is mental as well. However I've found that groundwar suits me much better and am enjoying that considerably more. That being said I am getting horrible desync a lot of the time. Games that start fine suddenly turn into lag fests half way through and become unplayable. This is with a decent ping of 20 or so. Very frustrating.
  13. I decided to go back to this and tried starting again so I could get my eye back in. It's bloody gorgeous isn't it! After I felt like I knew what I was doing I decided to load up my old save and try and finish the story. It wasn't as far as I thought ! Ended up ENDING SPOILERS It's sublime just exploring the city , and I think it's def improved with all the patches. Though I did see some bugs, and the parade sectioned tanked my FPS completely. Makes me long for a 4090.
  14. Just finished. Really impressed. There were a couple of bits that skirted the edge a little , but it kept its grip and got back on track every time. Roll on s2
  15. Into the breach is indeed great as is Faster Than Light But xcom is a masterpiece , not the new shite, the originals I mean. All of these games are bastard hard though.
  16. I have to be honest having twice as much dialogue is not what i was hoping for here....
  17. I'm glad to say I really enjoyed EPs 2 and 3 I'd be interested to know what it was about e2 that didn't ring true for you?
  18. Exactly this, it's the night surfing scene from Point Break all over again.
  19. I suggest you have a stern word with your brain. Chasm city is not without its faults, but the Inhibitor series is overall a fantastic piece of hard sci fi, far reaching in scope with really dark, interesting ideas, some great characters and some good science as well. I think if your reading something like this and thinking there are jokes about Gary Glitter in there you are doing it and yourself a diservice. Also @jimmyrazor Someone else mentioned and Ian M Banks influence as well. All sci fi is influenced and inspired by earlier works. You can find plenty of sci fi that influence Ian M Banks as well , and the books those guys riffed off and on it goes. Building on and expanding is what sci fi does. I was always very happy with how the Inhibitor series mashed old and new ideas into something very much its own.
  20. The night stuff was indeed really badly done. I also can see passed the white wool dreads. Terrible. It's also really weird the way they are using st Michael's mount. They keep doing panning shots with the background out of focus , but you can see it's Cornwall , then in other shots it's CG with a different coastline Minor gripes though I'm enjoying it
  21. Dredd is great. That is all
