  1. Not a much as I'd have assumed for something that (from my perspective anyway) clearly pointed the way to that sound. 'Original Nuttah' seems to get the most nods from historians but that was 2 (3?) years later... Edit: That said, Rebel MC is sometimes credited as coming up with the term 'Jungle'.
  2. I always thought that Rebel MC's third album - 'Black meaning good' had a profound effect on the UK dance scene. Certainly more than it appears to have been given credit for. Proto drum and bass/jungle really.
  3. Really enjoying it. Anson is a stand out. Question for TOS era ethics folk - was it acceptable to plan to divert the comet? (Thinking about the non interference aspect of the Prime Directive). Not sure they would have done that in TNG era?
  4. Actually annoyed. Never my favourite Tribe track (by quite a long stretch), but I can't believe Q-Tip actually signed off on this nonsense. Take a leaf from MCA. "I might stick around or I might be a fad, but I'll never sell my songs for no TV ad". As if Hip Hop couldn't get any worse, they have to drag out the classics and ruin those as well.
  5. No matter what 'time of day' I set, I always (well, last night), seem to be flying at night. Nothing I do in the settings seems to make a difference. Anyone experienced this? (I'm going to assume I'm doing something wrong, but in case its a known bug or something...)
  6. Did you look at Jason Bateman during that piece of dialogue? That's the really baffling choice when it came to adding to the scene. I can think of 100 better ways they could have achieved the same result.
  7. Sticking a static JPEG image of Jason Bateman (with that expression) next to Laura Linney whilst she delivers the exposition is one of the oddest (and hilarious) production choices I've seen in a long time.
  8. Sorry if it's been pointed out already, but anyone notice the hilarious production error in s4 episode 1 (around 30m 47s in)? I'm sure trying to add some exposition in post-production caused this, but I can think over 100 better ways to edit round this than what they actually did.
  9. If you value framerate above all else, then no - you shouldn't be playing those games being recommended that have "bad frame rates". I guess the original point was dismissing a recommended game purely because it doesn't run at 60FPS means you may be missing out, but if framerate trumps all then you should avoid them.
  10. No real issue, but I do think some of the compromises made to achieve this have negatively impacted particular games (for me). I also think in certain cases (and appreciate I'm alone in this), it can have a negative effect on the experience. I recall that 'Bioshock' was a wonderful 'cinematic' and dreamy experience - and had a real sense of 'place' as you walked through Rapture, and incredibly crafted environment that felt like it truly existed and had been built. When the frame rate was un-capped it just turned into a series of polygons with JPEG images pasted onto the surfaces.
  11. Yeah, I mean aside from the astonishing imagination that has gone into it, the graphics are jaw dropping at times - the incredible reflections, the lighting, the backgrounds - I'm not sure I've seen anything that looks like this before. Definitely enjoying it, and it deserves all the praise, I wish in parts the actual game elements were fleshed out a little more - perhaps a bit more of a 'Limbo-esque' puzzler, but with these aesthetics. Still, a massively enjoyable surprise.
  12. Damn. Avoid the reddit thread on the trailer as someone posted quite a plausible spoiler which would have been nice to experience 'in the moment'.
