  1. I am in such a quandary about this show. My technical ability beyond "Ted lasso stream online" is nonexistent (I blame Netflix et al for making me take my finger off the torrenting button), but I also don't want to start another subscription service because they're a capitalistic cancer. ALSO also, I don't want to do a seven-day trial in case this show runs for nine completely top quality seasons and I spaff it away on the first two seasons. But it is by far my most wanted for some time.
  2. I bought this a few days ago and it's already earned a superlative that I've never felt needed a category up until this point: Number one in Captivating but Fucking Frustrating. ENEMIES CAN ONLY BE STAGGERED IF THEY'RE ENCHANTED. BUT YOU CAN'T ENCHANT ENEMIES UNTIL THEY'RE BAFFLED AND YOU CAN'T BAFFLE ENEMIES UNTIL THEY'VE BEEN ENFEEBLED. ENFEEBLEMENT ONLY WORKS ON A CHAIN ATTACK SECOND FORM IF YOU'RE HOLDING A CAT (CATS STAGGER, BUT *DON'T* CAUSE CONUNDRUM). IF YOU DON'T USE ENOUGH ARTS, YOU'RE FUCKED. BUT FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST DON'T USE THEM TOO MUCH. AND ONLY USE THE RIGHT ONES. BUT ONLY IF THEY'RE SITUATIONALLY RELEVANT, WHICH YOU WILL NEVER KNOW BECAUSE YOU'RE SPENDING ALL YOUR TIME IN BATTLE STARING AT WHAT IS ESSENTIALLY A SCROLL MAP. I like collecting items though.
  3. I was going to write that it's extremely cynical, but realistically it's exactly as cynical as Niantic have ever been but with even worse QoL for the playerbase. They'll just grind out the sympathetic tweets, ignore it, and assume everyone else will too. There is also talk going around that various subscription types have been datamined from the game, with different distance values attached to each. We were so busy obsessing over sponsored content, none of us even thought of the other way they could make money whilst fucking the players over... Play Orna instead. It might be hugely addictive, then a massive pain in the arse/grind at higher levels, but it was made with love, dammit.
  4. This is £6.49 on the PS Store at the moment. I played it a while ago after playing 4 and Blood Dragon. It is just as excellent as I remember. Any po-faced purist can sit on one, as far as I'm concerned. I've not played a single moment of this game without a massive grin on my face - the story is utter tripe, the FPS aspects are dodgy, the standard Ubisoft collect-em-all is abundant. But you know what? This game is what Just Cause wishes it could be. Customise a character with a mullet and a stars-and-stripes t shirt, get a big gun, turn your brain off, and have some of the most dumb shit fun you've had on a game in years.
  5. So you're saying...we were wrong but he's also useless?
  6. Lovely match. I'm a 33 year old and my first formative memory of football was Euro 96. I can't say I'm a die hard football fan, but the most obvious difference in the last two tournaments to me is that instead of focussing our gameplan on media-chosen superstars, Gareth Southgate has somehow made the England team behave like an actual team of football players who, being in the top ranked teams in the world, achieve results consistent with the top ranked teams in the world. I mean, the S*n and all that have probably had a general go at it (I'd rather gouge my eyes out than check for confirmation), but it's at least nice to temper our perennial disappointment with some actual football that looks cohesive. It's almost like print media is attempting to intentionally damage the country, but of course that's nonsense.
  7. Fair play, they've come out firing.
  8. Lovely goal. I've been saying it for a while but we should fear Denmark. Already making it look fairly smooth sailing against a team we only put one past and - barring the Finland game obviously - they've been the most consistent team of the tournament.
  9. Worth noting that you can actually get two suit upgrades per system - one is on the station, the other in the Anomaly next to the exosuit upgrade guy. For fast cash, if you already have the resources to craft medium refiners then you can simply slap a load of cobalt and oxygen (buy it from pilots at a space station - they'll sell about 2000 each and you only need 13k or so to make decent scratch) in them, make loads of stacks of ionised cobalt, then put it back in the refiner to make (I think) something like eight times the cobalt you started off with. Since cobalt is bought in every system, you can sell your whole stash there, then buy the whole lot back for a fraction of the cost - I net around 60 million units a system like this (there are two system economies - one planetside, one on the station). Sorry if this has been mentioned earlier in the thread! I picked this up again a month or so ago and am having a blast so am slightly obsessive with it. My partner is off home for a month on Saturday, and whilst I'm ostensibly sad, I have a big bag of weed and, since I'm dropping her off at the airport early doors, a whole goddamn weekend to myself
  10. How are we feeling about this post? Edit: I am a dunce. Carry on.
  11. Painful isn't it? You get the feeling he writes them down days in advance with a big self-satisfied smirk on his face.
  12. Denmark are playing *quite* well after the first fifteen minutes, but Wales have turned into headless chickens. Hacked clearances, no time on the ball and when they do get it they pass it straight back. Tellingly the best piece of defending in the last ten minutes was a Dane smashing a ball against Ramsey's feet when he knew nothing about it.
  13. Christ this ITV commentary is beyond awful. "Nodbody is paying attention! Offside flag is up anyway. And you know....I *think* Raheem Sterling may have known that..." NO SHIT GENIUS
  14. I don't watch much footie but I spotted someone doing it the other day. God Spain are so dull.
  15. It looks like someone drew Rio Ferdinand's beard on with a permanent marker.
  16. Tyldesley trying to talk about England-Scotland whilst simultaneously trying to get a sneering dig in about previous encounters and being told to shut up and watch the (very good) game by Ally McCoist has been my favourite part of the tournament so far.
  17. Terrible news. One of my favourite actors and apparently a super lovely person to boot. RIP.
  18. Yeah, I probably would have been too if my team had fluked their way to a triple crown and were on course for a GS despite playing like a bucket of rancid cheese for the most part. Would you like to address the piss poor refereeing or just smugly take the win? I'm not saying that England deserved it in any way for what it's worth, but you're such a fucking chore in this this thread it's unreal.
  19. Yes, you are of course famously balanced in this thread.
  20. I don't think England are playing particularly well but those two tries were both absolute jokes. Farcical refereeing.
  21. Fair enough. The man really boils my piss though, if an English pundit had made a career out of shittalking an entire rugby team based on nationality they'd never be given the time of day. I was driving home from an utterly superb showing by the Chiefs today so hearing his verbal diahorreah really took the shine off.
  22. Really? I thought it was a pretty shitty decision to make as a gay man who's so strongly flown the flag for inclusion into a "masculine" game and has suffered so much at the hands of haters. Ho ho, us gays love that sort of thing - carry on you madlads! Right result, probably a red by the letter of the law but I think the law is wrong. I look forward to seeing Jiffy throw his toys out of the pram once again, it always makes me happy. Cunt.
