  1. I guess I consider the series finale to be a panic move, made in a rush when the decision came to axe the show. Precious Cargo though, I don't have any excuses for that. You're right, it's awful. Was that one of the scripts they'd recycled from the original series? But even in the 60s it had no place in Star Trek.
  2. Like most Treks, it takes a couple of series to find its feet, but it never reaches the highs of TNG or DS9. I don't remember any of the episodes being amongst the very worst of Trek, but it's more consistently mediocre. I don't know whether it's Bakula's fault, the writers, or the directors, but Archer's character was all over the place to begin with, and even when it settled he just wasn't very good.
  3. The free game offer usually rotates around 4pm UK time.
  4. Retroarch is a customisable software wrapper for many different emulators. It has many different "cores" which are the emulators themselves, allowing you to use a single piece of software to launch games from different platforms. Emudeck is a script which integrates Retroarch (and other emulators/wrappers) into the SteamOS experience, allowing you to create entries in your steam library to launch specific emulated games.
  5. I've encountered exactly zero compatibility issues so far. The only difficulties I've encountered are trying to play very old mouse-driven games using a controller layout, and that's just because I haven't fully got to grips with Steam Input yet. With the level of support SteamOS has, and the availability of XCloud, I have no idea why you'd want to go throught he faff of installing Windows on this thing.

    Anime

    How are they making more Bleach? I thought it finished years ago after an extremely bloated run. Is it a FMA-esque reboot or is there more of the manga to cover?
  7. So if it's okay to have games with Russians in again, can we have Advance Wars now please, Nintendo?
  8. Is the title actually Various Daylife?!
  9. Awful lot of stuff in this "Winter" Direct coming next year. Is March 2023 still Winter?
  10. You'll get an email when it's dispatched, with a link to tracking.
  11. I've had mine since Saturday, but only managed to find a an hour or two to play. It's such a nice bit of kit, it hasn't given me a single issue with any of the games I've thrown at it yet, although trying to play Total Annihilation without a keyboard is little tricky. How does it work if I want to press control keys (like, erm, 'ctrl')? I couldn't find them in the on-screen keyboard.
  12. I was watching that episode on my phone in bed while my wife slept next to me. I had to leave the room to stop myself from waking her up with my barely-supressed giggles.
  13. I'd have had one of these much sooner if I hadn't changed my mind about which version I wanted back in February, but I finally received my email and have completed my purchase. I'm excited! No clue what I'm going to play first.
  14. Given the trajectory of energy prices, my preferred advent calendar this Christmas will be one with a hot shower or a cup of tea behind each door.
  15. Just done the end of chapter 5. I know it's been mentioned in this thread before, but I was still unprepared for quite how long I'd be sat watching cutscenes. Once you get to: There are very brief moments during the narrative while you do have control, and while I didn't try to save the game during these I suspect you could if you wanted to break it up, but the story takes you on a ride for about two hours before you return to the game proper.
  16. Anyone experimented with amiibos yet? Most of them seem to give you a random grab bag of items, but Shulk gives you a cosmetic for the Swordfighter class!
  17. There is an entry in the "tips" section which does briefly catalogue buffs & debuffs. Easy to miss because I don't think it's ever shown to the player unless they look for it, and navigating the tips section is painful. I'm pretty sure "Awakened" is in there, but it's not a comprehensive list because it doesn't unclude the "Art follow up" area effect one of the heroes is capable of creating.
  18. I don't think so? Different characters have different aptitudes for different classes (the letter grading in the top-right on the class screen), and that affects how quickly they rank up. Having multiple characters with the same class speeds up how quickly others unlock that class. But all my characters have the same level and XP after 50 hours.
