  1. Feel free to add me - arealstrongboy. I play on both PC and PS4, and usually weeknights around 9pm (if work doesn't get in the way!).
  2. AO just had a big drop - thiiiink I've managed to get a disc version, but had to get the bundle with Miles Morales and an extra controller so feel like I got a bit shafted. Worth refreshing the page as the digital bundle is still available to add to basket (although going through to checkout is buggy).
  3. Trying to go meat-free as much as possible (but I'm weak and I crave fast food), so this thread has been a huge inspiration and help - the Bosh! Chili non carne has been a regular for me. Not sure if its a fad or not, but since November have been eating mainly vegan packed lunches and I'm finding myself excited to cook some vegan stews and salads. I've made the following with pretty decent success: https://www.olivemagazine.com/recipes/vegan/quick-quinoa-and-black-bean-chilli/ made this last night and chucked in a couple of cubed sweet potatoes and they added a really nice sweetness. https://www.reddit.com/r/Cooking/comments/g9j4a/chana_masala_one_of_the_best_ive_ever_had_and_i/ - pretty decent chana masala, not British Indian Restaurant style as I'd like, but good. https://www.budgetbytes.com/marinated-lentil-salad/ - chucked in quinoa, chickpeas and its v filling. https://uk.veganuary.com/recipes/chickpea-tuna-sandwiches/ this one is surprisingly good and I find I crave sandwiches and bread so hits the spot.

    Any recommendations for aliexpress joycons? Was well impressed with the third party aliexpress pro controller I got a few months back - would like to double up on a cheap pair of joycons for Mario Party too!

    The Grime Thread

    JME has a new album out - Grime MC. Only available on Vinyl/CD at the moment, but will slowly make its way onto streaming; his idea is a film hits Netflix after a movie theatre. Was half tempted to buy it to support him as I'm a fan of his approach to every day life as well as his music, but then read the below and went on Banquet Records and got myself a vinyl. Also doesn't help that I listened to the first track and it bangs

    On the subject of accessories, I'm going on holiday in a week's time and would like to play the Switch without having to bring the Dock. Is this still the 'muk approved one (provided I use the original AC adapter)? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B078S2F18Z

    Yeah those are the ones @unleashedmaniac. Clocked about 2 hours of BOTW onto it and battery hasn’t dropped an inch

    The 'pro controller' arrived today. Ridiculously pleased with the whole process and the unit - took 10 days to arrive, and it's nice and weighty. Decals(?) on the translucent part of the controller are nice and sharp, although not entirely sure they'll the official drawings. I got the Splatoon one. Paired instantly, and as a nice touch, the Switch recognised it was the controller with the green and pink handles if you had any reservations, go for it, great value. Seriously tempted to get another one just for when people come over - the SSBU edition one has my eye...

    Just jumped on this bandwagon. Hoping it arrives in the 2-3 weeks you've experienced. Small PSA: When I tried to order one, Aliexpress had sneakily tried to bump my order up to 4 units.. Had to switch to 'full page' payment, and reduce the number in my basket.
  10. Is there anywhere better to ask for hardware photography recommendations? Looking for a new camera and would like some advice! What can I get for the £400-500 mark, new or used, for a sharp travel photography camera? Since it'll be used when I'm abroad/not around my home, I'd like something fairly compact, m4/3 size, so would prefer something other than a full size DSLR. Looking for something that'll give me nice landscapes mainly. Already have a Ricoh GRII, but finding the AF is pretty sluggish when I want a close up, and don't want another point and shoot. I'm considering a Fujifilm X100T, as the size is perfect and the sample images I've seen look amazing, but the only downside seems to be it's yet another fixed lens, so would appreciate any suggestions! EDIT: Would also like an EVF.

    Been wanting a Switch for a few months now, but can't believe how much a second hand/faulty (so that I can buy parts and build it back up) Switch is on eBay/refurb websites. RRP is c. £250, but a refurb unit is £210, and broken Switches with all accessories go for £150-200 on eBay from the ones I've seen. Seriously impressive for a console that is two years old!

    End of an era indeed. I can't imagine Chris Evans ever putting penis alloys on whatever car he might drive.

    For those that don't follow JC on twitter, looks like hes back on the TG test track if I'm not mistaken That golden covered table really reminds me of those episodes when they had a blank star in a reasonably priced car leaderboard so they had to bring loads of 'stars' together for an afternoon to fill it in. Basically was a license for hammond to prat around more than usual. I really hope I'm wrong.
  14. The first thing that came into my mind when trying to review this episode was when capaldi takes a drink from the coffee cup and goes, "Mmm!"; was that a pulp fiction Mr Wolf reference?
  15. This is pretty much exactly how I felt. It felt a little like a Russell t Davies directed episode, where it looked a lot more cartoony and less like the Matt smith ones which looked way better in terms of the set and lighting; I can't really describe it but if you watch even a minute of a Martha jones and tennant clip and then a Gillan and Smith clip the latter feels a lot more cinematic? Will be interested to see how Capaldi interacts with the daleks next episode but all I remember was after the eleventh hour and even DT's opening episode I was immediately sold as them being the Doctor. It's a real shame I can't really same the for PC.
