  1. Can anyone recommend any decent Snap YouTubers? It’s a sea of clickbait nonsense out there. I’ve found that too many of them assume you already have every single series 4 and 5 card in the game or high-roll decks that are entirely reliant on almost perfect draw to pull off a busted combo or you might as well retreat on turn 3. I've seen people recommend Snapster, but look at this shit. Jeff Hoogland is another that gets recommended a lot, but I find his personality like nails on a chalkboard. I quite liked TLSG but unfortunately he tends to do a lot of 'Well if you happen to have Darkhawk, Galactus, Thanos and Sentry, this is a good' type decks.
  2. I love the fuckwits who start emoting like crazy when you retreat for a 1 cube loss, because you realise you don’t have the right cards in hand to counter the incredibly obvious combo they’re building towards, like they think they’re Gary Kasparov or something.
  3. I enjoyed building the Entry Grade so much I bought a HG to keep him company. Had a go at panel lining it as well. It's a bit mucky in some places, but I don’t think it was too bad for a first attempt. After finishing I ordered another HG and an RG.
  4. thought episode 1 was really good. Apparently episode 2 is a major dip in quality though, with a 20 minute sequence of Pedro Pascal pushing a crate up to a wall so they can climb over it.
  5. After watching some Gundam decided to give building my very first model kit a go. Coming from Lego I was surprised how cheap some of the sets could be had for. it’s only an Entry Grade on, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
  6. Japanese schoolgirls according to those Manga Entertainment videos you could buy in the 90s.
  7. If you like point and click adventure games, you can currently get a bundle of 13 (!) Wadjet Eye games on Humble Bundle for the princely sum of £8.34. https://www.humblebundle.com/games/wadjeteye-sixteen-years-of-adventure You also get a coupon for 33% off The Excavation of Hobb’s Barrow which is a really good game. One of the games included is Unavowed which I played and thought was excellent. As I already own it if someone wants my Steam key for it let me know.
  8. If we’re talking how they seem to have difficulty managing developers there’s also their new studio The Initiative who were making the new Perfect Dark, announced via yet another CGI trailer. Supposedly development of that was such a clusterfuck that it’s basically being made by Crystal Dynamics now.
  9. Issue with Arnie finishers is that they’re super telegraphed.
  10. The Headlines: Presented by Debaser and Probotector
  11. Edge’s Mario Kart Double-Dash Score. Fair?
  12. On my Xbox none of the games on GamePass have the cloud option anymore for some reason. Was handy for this 25 points just for booting up a game quests.
  13. I find myself switching off in the third-act of so many of these films as well. I think part of the problem is you have to be emotionally invested in the characters and what’s happening to them and here they’re all wafer-thin. I think it’s telling that even the posts praising the film are all ‘But the graphics tho’ and nary a mention of the characters or story. Personally I need more than flashy visuals. If all I want to do is look at nice scenery I’d watch a David Attenborough documentary.
  14. The visuals are nice, but apart from that I thought it was distinctly average. Felt like a retread of the first film (not helped by it having the same villain) and the story of that was pretty cookie cutter to start with. Cameron can still do well shot action in his sleep so there's that at least. After all the talk of waiting for technology to catch up and exploring an alien ecosystem I was hoping for something a bit more adventurous and strange than not-whales in not-Polynesia.

    Why do all the people who claim they don’t care about review scores never seem to shut up about them? 🤔
  16. As a multi-console owner I find them useful when it comes to deciding what format to buy a game on. It does seem to be single format warriors that they wind up.
  17. Is the Metro that short of content they now have to resort to publishing random fanboy ramblings from readers? ’Disturbing conspiracy’ If only Fox Mulder had realised that the real truth that was out there wasn’t hiding aliens but keeping down Nintendo for REASONS. There probably is a decent article to be written about gameplay/performance and where the focus of tech sites lies, but this paranoid nonsense certainly isn’t it.
  18. When you're rich you'd think you could afford a fake tan that doesn’t make you look like Papa Lazarou.
  19. The story of Bioshock Infinite has aged like milk under in a tanning bed.
  20. Maybe this will bear more resemblance to reality than the billy bullshit reveal of Bioshock Infinite.
  21. Because the way the characters look is so ingrained in my mind, everytime I look at this image my brain gets this for a second before it adjusts, which I know is silly.
  22. Wow, did we really manage to get to page 2 before someone started regaling us with tales of how much they paid for Street Fighter 2 as defence for giving mega corporations more of their money. New record?
