  1. In the 8bit->16bit days. I was skint and had plenty of pirated copies of games but I wouldn't pirate anything I really liked, I'd always buy those. Do I care that robdood doesn't contribute anything at all to the pockets of the artists that work incredibly hard to make this industry what it is? Yes a bit.
  2. No one belongs in the Justice League. The whole idea is a shitshow.
  3. Well with lead time for casting, shooting, post production etc... hmm... I found it pretty leery and stomach turning at the time. Anyway yeah - the Raid - no do not need that redoing. Make a new movie by all means but the original was close to perfect.
  4. Well how old was Fox when she appeared in Transformers and he had the camera right up her arse on the stairs? Edit: 20 or 21 when it was released. Borderline imho.
  5. Absolutely stunning. They need to find a way to make Attenborough immortal. I don't care how many human sacrifices it takes.
  6. Third series a little off the boil versus the first 2, but yes. Outstanding production.
  7. Really? I thought it was blatantly obvious from the actual movies, her comments just made the text a little bolder.
  8. Shoot 24MP RAW at 10fps and I think you'll soak up all the bluetooth bandwidth in the tristate area
  9. Hi Does anyone know if it's possible to calculate what prime lens focal length would be optimal for a subject 10m across at a distance of 15m? Full frame.
  10. Ta. I will give that a try - been trying raw firepower so far (including fire) and just can't stay alive long enough.
  11. This game is so sodding difficult on PC on normal difficulty. I'm soloing it with a couple of absolute idiots led by someone more stupid than them. Does anyone have any tips on how to get past the two crushers at the end of mission 7?
  12. The first time you went between planetoids in Mario Galaxy. There is quite a long list of close seconds.
  13. Resurrecting this just a bit after 17 years because having bought this back in 2004 as well, but just leaving it on the shelf through 4 house moves, I finally finished the main Neverwinter storyline on this, this week having got the enhanced edition on Steam in a fit of nostalgia a month back. 62 hours. It's funny how I thought the interface was a THUNDERING PAIN IN THE ARSE after the game UI journey we've been on and the game world felt tiny ... but the writing and animation was still brilliant .
  14. "I like to focus on Koronis Rift, Mercenary and Iridis Alpha because I don't feel like I've fully explored those yet. After that I am looking at rinsing Stunt Car Racer" (I never actually have any conversation about games)
  15. I love the sewing bee, only ever watch it by accident but quality TV.
  16. My mates and I played KO2 for hours and hours. About 10 years ago I ran into a community who were still holding tournaments. I bought a 500 (though we’d always played on an ST when I was 20) and that was fun for a while but they battered me every time. Don’t think there was a game I didn’t lose by at least 4 goals. After a few months I moved on and I donated them the amiga & sticks in case one of their machines ever broke down, as a kind of thankyou for letting me join their little underground subculture for a while. Wonder if they’re still playing it… anyway yes, where is Fire & Ice and Virus on this, hmmmm?
  17. I did drag Total Annihilation out again recently. That doesn’t make me smile but it’s got something about the challenge in the variety of tactics you can use that makes it really compelling still. Hades though. Absolutely.
  18. That is not untidy. and… yes I am mostly bored of games. Dabble now and again when a new idea or a genuine classic like tlou2 comes along and still love the artform. But I don’t like games that want to burn my time which seems to be most of them.
  19. Er, not sure. You seem to tilt the level. Whether it has changed how that looks relative to the screen… I didn’t think it was too different.
  20. The content is rendered and scaled to the screen size independently of the resolution these days. In the days of real coders having to draw each pixel “by hand” it was different.
  21. No because the text would be the same physical size, but with improved clarity
  22. Hmm Think a 1080p OLED would have been a big improvement. Did find the original a bit crap for small text. edit: would impact battery life though.
