  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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'.
  5. Probs need to rewatch. Maybe I gave them too much credit. If that's the case then I agree it was a strange conversation. Given the vast differences in time between now and a thousand years in the future, it would be like watching a contemporary drama where a character struggles to admit they believe in a helo-centric view of life as apposed to the churches view that everything revolves around the earth.
  6. Re: The 'they/them' pronoun discussion - I don't believe Discovery was trying to shoe-horn a very contemporary situation into something far in the future in a very literal sense (because, of course, in the future identity will just be a non-issue). I took it to mean Adira wanted the pro-noun of 'they' because of being the sum total of multiple people. So credit for engineering/music skills etc. was being attributed to multiple people - not just Adira. Of course, it was a nod the situation 'now' - but it wasn't a blatant "I'm uncomfortable bringing up my gender identity, but here it is".
  7. Just seen that 'The Biz' is in hospital - quite serious :-(
  8. Calligraphy would have been a good choice, but no Pierce :-( Still, cannot wait for this. I'm getting really strong movie vibes with the renewed interest in the show. Absolutely my favourite TV show of all time, there's something genuinely brilliant about it, absolute lightening in a bottle stuff.
  9. Yes, against all odds (and my cynicism about a second season) I really enjoyed that. I may even go as far as stating I thought it was better than the (excellent) first season.
  10. Just finished the latest season - absolute corker! Anyone else still watching? Proper essential TV. Bonzer!
  11. So, Bushwick Bill died last night. Was a huge fan of the Geto Boys back in the day. https://pitchfork.com/news/geto-boys-bushwick-bill-confirmed-dead-at-52/
  12. As far as Klingon design goes, that’s not really a 'canon' thing is it though? (I mean ridged foreheads aren't strictly canon aside from some weak retconning). Spocks story doesn't go against canon either, we've just had new details revealed to us.
  13. Moan, moan, moan. Yet you all will be back for season 3. It’s almost tragic that people will force themselves to watch something they hate, week after week. I absolutely adore Discovery, and I thought the finale was breathtaking.
  14. American Inspector Spacetime
  15. Sad tease. Hope they break all the grimey beats out the dungeon at some point.

    I was at the Hackney event. Brilliant night - fucking hilarious and even tear jerking in parts. Like nothing I've ever seen.
  17. Here's where I was today...
  18. Didn’t know Matt Dike died http://deliciousvinyl.com/2018/03/matt-dike-1962-2018/
  19. Liking the idea of corporate events. Going to send this around. Great stuff.
  20. I'll be pissed if it was because of this lense issue, but it makes sense. Everything was so washed out and colourless that I refuse to believe it was a cinematographic choice.
  21. Yeah, wasn't keen on that. Nothing popped for me, it felt like I was watching it on a giant CRT with the curtains open.
