  1. ...and character development. That's important for me, in an RPG. although that might be what you mean by stats and customisation (as opposed to how big her boobs are gonna be). To me that looks fantastic. I love the tongue-in-cheek characterisations. I'm all over that stealthy hooded girl character. If i thought i stood a chance of playing it in the next year, i'd pre-order. But with Wolfenstein to finish, Bordlands and all of the MGS V series in the pipe, and another 37 game i've not even bothered to look at, plus the Rift games i've not tried, i'm in no rush to add any more.
  2. Saw this and thought someone might be interested. https://io9.gizmodo.com/scifi-author-martha-wells-is-bringing-magic-the-gather-1822976803
  3. The problem i have with this sort of comment is that the film has been regarded as one of the best movies ever made for over 40 years, from an pure entertainment point of view. I think it's a little to cool too subject films to a super-clinical autopsy and scrutinise every single plot thread to the nth degree, like it was made by a movie making genius. We're used to it today, and modern film makers should make film expecting that level of scrutiny. But it was 1976. The film was a lot of fun, enjoyed by children and adults across the world. Just chill out and see it for what it was. At the time it was a very high risk sci fi movie by a new and inexperienced director, that was made when practically zero bucks went into sci fi ($40m in adjusted bucks by todays standards). To take it apart scene by scene and criticise it for less than stellar movie making prowess seems fairly petty to me. It ain't supposed to be Hitchcock or Orson Welles. Or storytelling of a Dickens level. I am pointing less to you Jag, than i am to the modern habit of taking apart films and being, what i feel is, overly critical. Or am i over-reacting?
  4. Really? Maybe i have the wrong game then. I recall Jazz getting stiffies over some knight-base fighting game with decent graphics before Christmas. I thought this was it.
  5. Haven't bought a CD in over a decade. I just changed car, to a 6YO thing, which happened to have a 6 DVD changer in the glovebox. It plays mp3's to will take around 8000 songs. Doubt i'll be buying any more CD's again soon either.
  6. Great to hear you got stuff going on Mykh. Awesome Bryan May hair in some of those old photos. I wish you all the best with it and hope Djuanna is keeping well (forgive my spelling).
  7. I seem to recall this game being spumed over a few months back. http://store.steampowered.com/app/219640/Chivalry_Medieval_Warfare/
  8. The whole thing was amazing. Musk is close to being a new hero of mine. The guy could do anything and yes, he doesn't shy away from the camera, or self-promotion, but i believe his driving force (pun intended) is the betterment of humanity, and that makes him a pretty cool fella to me. The almost simultaneous booster rocket landing was just awesome/unbelievable to watch. The amount of discreditation that it generated, around it being "obviously" cgi, just reinforces how unbelievably amazing it was. I don't give a hoot that the core failed to land successfully. One thing musk has done from the start was celebrate all of his failures as attempts at success and learning points, which is the perfect attitude. And fuck anyone who can't handle anything short of perfection every time (check inside your pants fuck-wit). Keep it up Elon, you have at least one fan here.
  9. Altered Carbon. Based on allegedly well respected book series. Very high budget series, featuring Joel Kinnaman (Robocop/The Killing). Fast-paced story, set in a future where we can transfer our person/consciousness between different bodies (sleeves), leading to a situation where some people are over 600 years old. So far, so very good.
  10. Looking good. We grew peas 2 years ago. The final plants were around 2.2m tall!!! I suspect no visit from vampires for you this year... Unless they're Elephant Vampires. Imagine the bite-marks!
  11. I'm loving the engine on that game. The graphics are just gorgeous.
  12. You can tell that 2nd photo is a fake. The phone number on the sign starts with 555.... Fascinating.
  13. Finished Dishonoured 2. Good game. Not too keen on the ending though - it was a bit of a damp-squib ending. Moved on to Wolfenstein. Also by Bethesda and ID games. I played an earlier rendition back in the 90's, using the Doom engine. I paid around £2.50 for this game late last year and have taken until now to load it up. I have to say it's a really good game. Nothing new, but the production values are through the roof. The story has a broad scope. The first few hours of the game starts towards the end of WWII. The nazis have far superior technology, employing giant robotic weapons. You eventually get put into a coma, waking 16 years later in 1960, and the Nazi have won. So you join the resistance. That's as far as i've gone. 4 years old, but the CG holds up really well. Characters are well fleshed out, especially the broadly scottish accented main buddy. Highly recommended.
