  1. No More Heroes 3

    The real sequel coming 2020!
  2. The death of Twitter

    So is it dead? Or are those reports greatly exaggerated? I was actually considering getting rid of my account at some point, but for other reasons. I think Twitter's getting more and more annoying, on the other hand, it still occasionally keeps me in the loop on certain things, so I'm not sure yet. What are you guys doing?
  3. Marvel's Phase 4

    I'll keep it short: I believe I'm in the minority, but I actually though Wakanda Forever was disappointing. It didn't really feel like a Black Panther film to me. Everything regarding the politics didn't make sense to me, I'm not sure why Aquaman thought it was a good idea to attack Wakanda, in order to stay hidden. Or something. Wasn't a fan of Irongirl's introduction. And.. I'm not sure why Wakanda thought it was a sound tactic to counterattack the water people.. By sending one boat to the middle of the ocean. I'm still looking forward to Ant-man and now.. Guardians of the Galaxy.
  4. Marvel's Phase 4

    Had nobody seen Black Panther 2 yet? The first few reactions I'm seeing are positive. I'd have seen it already if I didn't agree to go with other people.. I'm seeing it Saturday.
  5. Virtual Reality

    The avarage customer is not going to be aware that what you don't pay in money when buying a Meta headset, you pay in data.
  6. I don't know about you, but I have liked, subscribed, and rang his notification bell.
  7. That's his youtube name / channel.
  8. Do you still buy gaming magazines?

    I've been thinking about magazines in general lately, I even ordered one this month, a Dutch magazine about outdoor lifestyle en sports. Gaming magazines? I don't see me buying any of those. I've never bought them regularly anyway. I had a subscription to the Dutch official Nintendo magazine in the 90s, but apart from those I only have a small selection of gaming magazines like the Power Unlimited, which is the most popular gaming magazine here in The Netherlands (I assume, I don't have any statistics). I get all my gaming info from the internet. I do actually have a pretty large collection of.. Fashion magazines and men's magazines. Probably around 300. But you're talking about gamings magazines in particular, so I won't elaborate.
  9. Living to 100

    I seriously plan to make it to 120. Think about it. It's the only realistic way of time traveling. My curiosity will get me there.
  10. Resident Evil 4 Remake - 24th March 2023

    i suspect unlike most of you, I haven't played this game in a long time. The Cube version is the only one I've ever played. That combined with my shit memory, and I'm all up for this remake. It looks great, and half the game will feel like new because of the tweaks of because I've forgotten stuff. Hmm. Just found out Ashley's face model is Dutch.
  11. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    So.. The CE was available, for 2 days at most? I saw the e-mail at work, but fell a sleep early that day so didn't take a look.Next day the site was down. The day after.. it wasn't available anymore. I've got the CE for 1 and 2, so now I'm missing out on the 3rd because Nintendo doesn't have its shit together? I'm pissed.
  12. Dead Space Remake (27th January 2023)

    Ok.. I'll take that back. Despite being a remake and despite being from EA.. This looks pretty good.
  13. I would have preferred some other voice actors, but overall I enjoyed the footage and I'm looking forward to the premiere. I'm pleasantly surprised so far.
  14. Google Stadia

    The cynic in me is assuming this is pure cheap damage control. Refunding the 10 customers they had is probably chump change for them while the positive image they create will offset the "killed by google" and "wow susprising" reactions by a tiny bit. Probably worth it.
  15. bad stuff thread.

    I'm fysically fine yeah, nothing serious. I seem to have hit my head on the pavement. I don't remember it, but my injuries seem t indicate this. Luckily I was always accused of having a hard head, and it definitely helped out here. I've got a concussion, resulting in a headache, but that's fading. A few scrapes, one of them on the top left side of my head, but nothing serious. And nothing visible thanks to my luscious hair. Got some blood on my glasses though, which miraculously also survived the incident. And I got some sore muscles. A few in my neck, but the worst are on the left side of my head. Chewing food hurts at the moment, this is the most annoying thing right now. No I seem to be able to sleep of anything. After I got home yesterday, I spent most time in bed. I got up to eat and check the internet (and post on NE about my adventure), but then headed back to bed early. I'm better now but I'll probably take it easy today as well. I'll probably go see a few films tomorrow, though I hate having to use public transportation. I have no other options currently without a functional bike. I'll probably be complete my old self after the weekend, or later this week. I'm more worried about the practical and financial consequences, that's going to be a hassle. Edit: Apparently, there's a video available. Edit: Oh the video is part of a (small) article). You can find it here (and run it through Google translate): https://district8.net/gewonde-bij-aanrijding-tussen-auto-en-fietser-op-horror-rotonde-martinus-nijhofflaan-delft.html And that roundabout seems to be notorious. You can find multiple videos of accidents on that location on the same channel.
  16. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 (29th July 2022)

    Pre-orders for the CE will go up first half of October.
  17. bad stuff thread.

    Got hit by a car today. it's not even the first time this year. But the first time wasn't serious, this one knocked me out cold. That's me Luckily I seem to be built like a tank, and apart from minor stuff like scrapes and bruises there's only the concussion to worry about. CT scan didn't show anything serious, so they let me go. Just to clarify, I was on my bike. I remember approaching the roundabout, and I remember regaining conciousness in the ambulance, but nothing in between. My poor bike though, wasn't as lucky. I left it in Delft (where I had the accident but I don't live there), it doesn't ride anymore. That's not the first beating this year it got as well.
  18. Nintendo Collectables!

    It looks like the re-release of Pyra and Mythra is at hand.. And I wasn't expecting them until Summer 2023. I have other things I want to do with my money right now, so it looks like I'll have to cancel..
  19. Lego!

    Work in Progress pic: I got this one from my brother for my birthday a few months ago. Finally started building it today (after needing to unwind after resuscitating babies all day . Doing a first aid course). I don't have much time the coming weeks, so I'll be doing this one in chunks. I did buy some other sets because of the increased prices and the discounts I could get at this point. Bought my first modern technic (won't be buying many of those), and my first modular (will be buying all of those). I'll post pics when I have them.

  21. I prefer the new one (I don't like the pop-up book and I do like the artbook), but I'll skip this one as well as I have no use for the busts. This is simply what I want from a CE: artbook, physical soundtrack, and a nice box around it. I don't need anything else. Small trinkets like a pin are fine though I can do without. If you do a figure (and thefore increase the price by a lot), it needs to be high quality, and most aren't I believe.
  22. It was a surprise, but not a good one. It looks cheap (at least put some effort in a real remake), and as a Nintendo fan I've been waiting for a new Tales game since Tales of Symphonia 2, but we've never gotten one. I'll skip this one.
  23. Nintendo Collectables!

    Yeah I've just seen them. I'm only interested in the babes, but this seems to be a duo.. Making this more of an all or nothing situation. But if I got them both, I'd also miss Ike in the collection, so I'm leaning towards getting neither. From the Radiant games I'd love a Titania, Lucia or Micaiah. From Three Houses I'd love.. well I'd love them all, but I'd love a Sothis, Shamir and Kronya even more.
  24. Kickstarter Projects Thread

    I have a preference for Penny Blood, but I like the look of both so far. Unfortunately I don't have the money for it now, but they already achieved their goal.. I find the double kickstarter thing a bit convoluted.. Though it looks like it did what it needed to do, get the hypetrain going.
