    @kernow please keep your edgelord bullshit to yourself, thanks.
  2. Yep, Satanus was the dinosaur and Shako was the polar bear. I think Satanus was the only crossover from Pat Mills' universe to the world of Dredd...

    Ah yeah, the effects come in very handy for that kind of thing alright. Filters on the pioneers are definitely a weak spot, they stand out a mile I think. Loads of other really useful stuff on them though. How do you find the sound after your Allen & Heath? I think the first generation of the pioneers didn't sound great, but they've improved massively. I went for a Mixars Duo. I needed integrated serato so I could play Mp3s and vinyl in the easiest way, and that was really the cheapest option. Really pleased with it for the price I paid. Sound is great, serato controls are nicely integrated, filters sound lovely. The only thing is effects are all on Serato (though controlled through the mixer), so I can't use them on records, but I had to sacrifice something for the budget I had. I'm playing mostly footwork on mp3 and jungle on vinyl through it so I don't miss them too much, as they're both pretty wild to start with.
  4. Are you buying the Case Files? General consensus is that it really starts kicking off around Vol 5. That has Block Mania, The Apocalypse War and Judge Death Lives. That is some absolute peak Dredd, wow. Wagner and Grant on top form with the absolute masters on art duties - Ezquerra, McMahon, Smith, Bolland... Outside of that, it's kind of hard to give you a steer. A lot of stories impact the time line a little bit, but you wouldn't avoid them because of that. On top of that, loads and loads of great (and hilariously funny) stories are one or two episodes and done, so even if we recommend some epic tales, you'll miss out on them. So while you should grab some collected epics, don't ignore the case files as they collect all the smaller stories too. One thing I will say is, I would hold off on Origins until you read a lot more Dredd. Hits much harder when you really get to know Dredd. Off the top of my head, these are the big stories I've enjoyed the most that I haven't mentioned: Any Chopper stuff America (wait a while to read this) Cursed Earth Judge Child Anything with Total War The Pit Tour of duty Mutants in Mega City One PJ Maybe stories Otto Sump stories Day of chaos (leave this til much later) I'm not mad on the Dark Judges, but the first storyline with Bolland on art is mint. Couple of one offs - Bury my knee at wounded heart, The Runner In general, John Wagner with or without Alan Grant writes the best Dredd stories. They worked under some aliases frequently: John Howard. T.B. Grover, Mike Stott, Keef Ripley, Rick Clark, Brian Skuter

    Did you get sorted for something here? Why do you want to get rid of the A&H?

    I think this is probably a sincere apology, but to clear this up, if someone is gender fluid and does not wish to be referred to as a He, then please don't do that. I appreciate this stuff can be hard to get your head around for people in our generation, so just wanted to point this out. Thankfully I know nothing about Sam Smith and I will take you at your word that they are a talentless cunt, but in future if we could watch our pronouns that would be smashing.
  8. Loved all of the last series, but I’m reeling from the last 4 episodes. Peak Star Wars. So good. The first two story arcs were pretty corny but executed really well, and Filoni is just really good at characterisation. Even his cliched characters have something about them which makes them feel real.
  9. Yeah, that's how I remember it too. He was definitely considered past it at one point.
  10. Congrats Nate! Thanks for not bailing out of the forum while you were on Edge. It was good to get your inside view.
  11. Thanks to those recommending Grand Mountain Adventure earlier in the thread. Wonderful game. Just full of brilliant design decisions. The Rez-style gently quantised notes when passing gates, the “dialogue” with people on the slopes, the different styles of mountains, the speed at which everything happens, the slightly random rewind feature. It’s a pleasure just to ride down a mountain, never mind the well judged challenges. I’ll be quite sad when I knock off those last few goals. I have struggled a bit with staying on grinds and getting high points on the trick challenges but touch screen controls don’t really suit that kind of thing I suppose. Also it’s fairly hungry for power. Plays fine on my iPhone 8 but my iPad Air 2 couldn’t handle it even when I dropped all the settings as low as possible.
  12. Pre-ordered this as one of my rare full price, day one games as I devoured doom 2016. Stuck it on and got pretty bad motion sickness, which I didn’t get a hint of in the previous game. Absolutely heart broken, I was really looking forward to it. I can’t even sell it right now. Curse my stupid brain.
  13. I bought the PS2 SOTC on release and encountered a game-breaking, progress-halting bug after killing the second last beastie. It was enough to even put me off playing the third game in the series, and I LOVED Ico. So not sure how I feel about this. I'll give it a go I suppose.
