  1. Anyone doubting the health risk potential should read about EPO era cyclists having to set alarms to get up in the night to check their haematocrit levels weren't going to mean their hearts literally couldn't pump the blood round their body because it was too thick.
  2. Without antidoping a lot of sports become "who is willing to risk dying/long term health the most?"
  3. Played Kanban EV again with the wife last night. It might be the best game.
  4. That's the average for all penalties or shootout penalties? I presume the average is lower in shootouts.
  5. We've moved into a new house. It's a lovely mid 18th century farmhouse on a country estate provided by my employer, but the important thing is we now have a games room, and I can actually step back far enough to take a photo of my Kallax.
  6. I reckon maybe Timmo knew it was more than four polygons but was using exaggeration to make a point.
  7. Belated thanks @Mortis @Munkienut, I inevitably caved on the last day of the campaign and pledged all in.
  8. Do I want to commit ~£200 to go all in on the Everdell KS? On the one hand it seems a ridiculous amount to pay for one game. On the other people seem to love it and I am very much tempted by all the cute animeeples. Opinions please.

  12. Haha, sorry! I've never played the earlier editions but I like some of his other games and this looks good.

Mythic Adventures £21.79 Tinner's Trail KS £43 £104.05 Kickstarters we paid for last year don't count, right? If so I should be able to keep things sensible this year, given that I have Kanban EV, The Gallerist, Fruitticola, and Venice due to arrive shortly. Plus Perseverance and Wibbel at some point. If I count them my total would look a lot scarier. EDIT: oh and a LOT of Railroad Ink, but also paid for last year.
  14. So why aren't all first party MS games released on PlayStation?
  15. The absolute worst thing for PlayStation owners is Sony dominating another generation and Microsoft leaving the industry. MS being competitive forces Sony to be more consumer friendly. Sony will unquestionably screw gamers everywhere if they can get away with it. For this reason, assuming you agree that acquiring ZeniMax makes Microsoft more competitive, this is good news for all gamers. Unless you believe it's so good for MS that Sony stops being competitive, I suppose. But no one really thinks that.
  16. No doubt, but the discussion was why MS would spend $7.5bn and not make their games exclusive, and you suggested to get them on Gamepass. Clearly they want their stuff on Gamepass, but presumably that could have been achieved by using a pile of money that is big but not as big as $7.5bn. Basically I am agreeing that buying ZeniMax outright suggests their games will not be on PlayStations in the future.
  17. I'm not sure they would have had to buy all of ZeniMax if they just cared about getting their stuff on Gamepass.
  18. Pretty much in line with his general character though. What a dickhead. Imagine being that arrogant when you're talking to Sean fucking Kelly.
  19. You haven't missed something but it's quite nice playing on the same island together. It's kind of in keeping with the point of the game. You can leave gifts and notes and surprises for each other. It is shit that you aren't given the choice though. But anecdotally people annoyed by this have indeed bought extra consoles and copies of the game. Probably more people than have refused to buy it at all in protest. So I guess they're vindicated.
  20. Last time I played Secret Hitler I noticed the back of one of my tiles was damaged. I'd only played my copy a few times, as I'd played it a lot at my old gaming group but bought my own to introduce it to other people, and I didn't think I'd damaged it. Anyway, being able to identify a tile from the back would potentially ruin games. I tried to forget which tile it was but couldn't, so I emailed the makers the other day to ask for a replacement tile. They replied to say they were unable to do this so they've just sent out a complete second copy, free of charge instead. Amazing customer service. It's my favourite social deduction game. People should definitely try it if they haven't and social deduction doesn't automatically turn them off. Some of my best gaming memories involve successfully hoodwinking people into electing Hitler. Obviously you wouldn't be able to play it for a while, but you know, when you can.
  21. Left you some bells where other people had and a left Quez wing by your house.
  22. Whereas I was thinking "oh good, just 1 and 2 so no revert". Doesn't the fact that it's in the trailer suggest they've fucked with the gameplay in a really significant way? I know some strange people liked the revert but it totally changed the game and the first two games weren't even designed to have it in. Aren't people worried about that?
  23. My wife and I hit one hundred plays since we started isolation/lockdown today.
