    Contact Epic. My Metal Mouth challenges aren't working, I contacted them not expecting much and they have asked for more details. Not sure anything will come of it but at least they've responded!

    Cheers. Sent them a message, waiting for response.


    Annoyingly I purchased 1000 V-Bucks to send the Battle Pass, but I could only use real money to purchase the gift pass. Frustrating in itself, let alone when it doesn’t actually work.

    The proton packs seem to be going for bonkers money. There’s a pair of them in the loft at my folk’s house that have repeatedly dodged the carboot over the years. I think they even have the boxes and pool noodle that hangs out of the end too. A sobering thought that my nest egg could end up being some plastic tut I had when I was four.

    I still have the old proton pack in good nick, so I’ve preordered that new spengler wand, and hopefully the sale of one will cancel out the other. 

    I’m going to spend an obscene amount on Ghostbusters tat this year, but... when are we going to get Ghostbusters 3 again?


    Also a few years ago I sold dozens of my old RGB toys - 2 large boxes worth of figures and vehicles including the firehouse with sign, stickers and original box... flogged them as a job lot for £100... I think I may have fucked up there.

  3. The biggest progression sticking points for me were ( keeping it vague):


    - Locating a piece of armor in a very obscure location with no in-game hints.

    - IIRC Grinding a specific water enemy for crafting.


    The game didn’t instruct enough on these two instances , and for 100% I needed to refer to online guides which could’ve been a feature of the game itself.


    Now: Where the hell is all the DLC they promised? It’s nearly March, the Switch release was patched. What gives!?

  4. The magician one was great and would’ve been up there with the best... but Reece’s turtleneck outfit, wig and hammy acting really pulled me out of it.

    They usual nail their parts so this was a rare misstep and not enough to totally ruin it, still the best of the series for me: a superbly constructed twist.

    In Joey's case it would be more like 13 years after his last appearance.


    Remember Joey? I think I watched its first 3-4 episodes. :mellow: Did anyone here keep watching until it ended?

    It seemed ok from memory - apparently season 2 was better but never aired over here.


    I’m amazed they don’t show it alongside reruns of Friends.


  6. If I need to put in a few hours a day to grind the full BP then I’m basically a week or so down at this point. I don’t wanna grind those small maps anymore. It kind of went South pretty quick this season.


    There is a problem with passes - progress too quickly and the unlocks have no value - progress too slowly and it just becomes a chore or unachievable. 

    The former is the better option but both pose an issue with incentive.


    Also once you’ve unlocked one paid for operator or skin for both factions, what is the incentive to keep unlocking stuff? FOMO. Fortnite doesn’t suffer from this so much because of all the social aspects to the game - it’s fun to continually mix and match and add skins and emotes to your arsenal.


    Not so much with MW it turns out. Nikto’s blue flash has been the highlight of the MTX. And there are so many weapon blueprints I see some cool ones but cba to grind for them when I have a custom weapon I’m already levelling. 

    Sometimes I love mtx aesthetics and other times I feel they’re a pointless grind. MW has fallen into the latter category. Just waiting for BR mode now.

    For $2.5M each I'm sure HBO Max are going to want them in character, not just doing a Q&A.

    It’ll be a shitty panel thing with the actors looking back at clips and telling behind the scenes stories again.

    Hope they do more like the Fright Features one but have to get them I reckon.


    I can't afford the set and the sculpts aren't great so I went for Egon & Ray, will keep them packaged for nostalgia. The Fright Features line was better overall - would definitely be tempted to go for the full set of those if they release them next year. They've brought the Fright Features name back for toys from the new film.


    It's hard to tell how common these reissued figures will be - so better to be over-cautious with pre-orders.


    This DST Egon figure released last January is going for £150-200 now. They retailed at £25. I owned one and sold it for £50... kind of regret that now as it's a good figure. Should've bought two.
