  1. These were both composed by Ramin Djawadi, and whilst they're both great, his true crowning achievement is the Pacific Rim theme
  2. Not at all. It follows the three or four years of Mank's life up to the point where he finishes the first draft of the script, before Wells is even properly involved. It's not a film about the making of Citizen Kane but rather it tries to bring to life the national politics and studio politics of the time it was made, as well as shed some light on the real life inspirations for some of the characters Mank drew on when writing that first draft. The very little that Wells is referred to he is very much seen as a wunderkind.
  3. Whilst I promised myself I wouldn't get involved in this thread again, I'm really intrigued by this critisms: Why wouldn't they fall (i.e keep moving in the direction they are initially propelled)?
  4. I've done this and it's made those larger enemies easier. I've also upgraded the axe attack to do more damage whilst sprinting which does a lot of stun damage and doesn't use much stamina so you can chain them to stun large enemies quite quickly.
  5. I've just tried to add you although I'm not sure if it worked. I'm Kwasii#8754
  6. Just looking at the data in the link it's using carbon conversion factors from 2010. 2010 Electricity carbon factor 0.541 kgCO2/kWh 2020 Electricity carbon factor 0.242 kgCO2/kWh Also once you add in the fact that computers are reasonable amount more efficient these days (W/cycle) then I think it's pretty safe to assume downloads now have a lower carbon footprint.
  7. Go to Stadia.google.com on your laptop browser. Connect your Switch controller via a usb cable or bluetooth and you're good to go. The official Stadia controller has less lag, but it's not a massive difference.
  8. You know what, having spent a bit of time playing various Stadia games over the weekend thanks to getting two free controllers for being a Youtube Premium subscriber, I am now a true believer. If you've got a nice stable internet connection, it delivers on its promise of minimal faff gaming. Even playing Doom in 4K, whatever lag there was wasn't enough to impact on the fast, twitchy nature of the gameplay. I've got family sharing set up with my wife, kids and my brother. Only one of us needs to buy a game and we all get to play on our own accounts, which is great because you can al
  9. I unironically am very excited for the Avatar sequels! Who's with me lads?
  10. Having played a bit more, I think I agree with this 4 star Guardian review.
  11. Whilst it is a bit janky I'm really enjoying the sheer number of ways open to you in approaching tasks. Plus it has that pure Clint Hocking Far Cry 2 gameplay loop of: 1. Survey an area 2. Meticulously plan your approach. 3. Being implementing plan. 4. Watch plan go south. 5. Invent new manic plan on the fly. 6. Watch that plan go south. 7. Fuck all planning and start punching/shooting/rocket launching your way to victory/escape. It's by no means a masterpiece but as a sandbox for mayhem is surprisingly deep.
  12. Henry James describes The Turn of the Screw as a fairly straight ghost story and this does feel like they weren't looking to deviate too far from the source material, so I think it should be only be considered a 'horror' in the broadest sense.
  13. There are a few Muslims I know who are really tired of SBC playing up stereotypes about their attitudes to both Jews and women - like the mainstream media's portrail of Muslims isn't relentless bad enough.
  14. Phones are everything. All of life. Almost all of my interactions with the outside world are through my phone. This is only going to continue to increase. Several developing countries are very rapidly moving from physical cash to phone based money. Two Silicon Valley companies own the whole app market place. You want to enter this digital world, you've got to hand over a hefty chunk of cash to these two rent seeking parasites. I'm a civil servant who designs policy for some of the most vulnerable people in society. If we designed an app for these people to access and pa
