  1. Netflix

    Nope, I imagine it'll be jabs of racism and revelations how Harry was suffocated but won't have the balls to name anyone a la Oprah interview, the Palace will deny stuff / "launch an investigation" and we'll have forgotten about it before end of January and I'm being generous with that time frame. The Watcher - simply infuriating. But there is a new season of Archer, so that's a good thing.
  2. bad stuff thread.

    Our dishwasher appears to have packed up. Cycle from last night didn't appear to have drained so when dragging it a bit (not all the way because fucking pipes aren't that long) it started back up again, so thought all would be well, but it seemed that cut out before end of the cycle and water hadn't drained 100% again, and none of the buttons are responding. I've tried a few things, taking out the filter for a proper clean, soda crystals and vinegar, thinking that it was shutting itself down due to overheating because it was clogged (a problem I had with my vacuum once) *sigh* it's had a good run I guess. It was there when we moved in our house and that was 6 years ago, the effort now in aside from ordering a new dishwasher is finding a way to access the back, which involves either emptying a cupboard and seeing if a panel can be removed for access to the back, or dragging the oven out to see if there is enough water pipe slack that it can be pulled out from where it is.
  3. The Traitors

    I got invited to apply for this, because I applied to be on The Circle which they've since shafted. Haven't watched yet to see if I regret ignoring the emails.
  4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Still more to explore than Breath of The Wild did in their whole map.
  5. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Colour me interested. But if it's just graphical I'm less colourful. Game is a masterpiece
  6. Netflix

    At times he can grate I agree, but by far the most interesting character.
  7. General TV Thread

    So fucking happy when I saw this. A shame it took this long and we have to wait until late next year, but I'm looking forward to seeing how old the episodes go back. Until then I've got the farewell tour in March to go to. I finished watching The Devil's Hour on the Prime. Not enough Capaldi as advertised, too much wooden acting child - now I hate child actors always, because they're terrible - however this seems to be the actual personality of the character, BUT! it doesn't stop the character from being really boring. You just don't care what happens involving him and you want more cryptic Capaldi. The twist was alright. Much better than Behind Her Eyes, because you knew it was going to be something wild not long into it. I can't help thinking that things were half-done, something was missing to justify the length, as many things are stretched out.
  8. Netflix

    I thought it was going to be set more around the time Blockbuster actually went bust, not around now - looking at the Wiki there still is a last Blockbuster - so fuck my UK lack of local knowledge. I think I've done about 5 episodes, and found 2-3 bits humourous, all from JB Smooth, most of the time it's either cringing at monologues, or looking at that lass with her mid-drift out and constantly thinking how the fuck an employee would be allowed to dress like that. Put that bitch in a regulation uniform. I didn't know it had a nine-nine connection, but it now makes the Park-Fumero / Santiago-Peralta interaction painful to watch. It's a poor man's Superstore.
  9. Do you still buy gaming magazines?

    Not really video game magazine, but I have subscribed to Tabletop Gaming magazine, however the last 3 issues have been very quickly flipped through and put to the side with a promise to read it later.
  10. I might give WaveRace a go, I again tried Pilotwings and again just felt bored. And I've only done 2 missions. I want the 64 controller now, NAOW GODDAMIT NAAAAOW
  11. For the Mario Party vets, can they be played with single joycons, or two together? I never played them on the 64 so I dunno how many buttons they used, apart from going hardcore on the analogue stick
  12. What Have You Bought?

    Genius film
  13. What Have You Bought?

    Google Pixel 6a, because the power button on my old Galaxy disappeared today, so I had to turn the screen timeout to 10 seconds so it isn't always on.
  14. What song(s) are you really into at the moment?!

    And other delightful rock/punk remixes this chap does
  15. What Have You Bought?

    During my time off work I finally got round to playing Hitman 2 which I bought years ago and never started, finished last week and was looking to buy the third. Steam told me to hold off until this week because they had a Hitman sale on. Boom
  16. Return to Monkey Island

    It's not bad, but the ending is absolute bullshit.
  17. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    He's already attempted that role and bombed, perhaps he's trying to expand his IMDb repertoire to find his acting niche? I'm not surprised they're trying to shoehorn another pop act into this, after the Katy Perry stuff (which confused me as that Electric song was semi teased, then came out about a year [or more?!] and the video was tacky CGI shit) and then Post Malone bouncing around whilst Pokémon try to pretend he's not there. But that video from yesterday... very painful to watch.
  18. The gameplay can be about whatever it wants - it doesn't detract from that it's an vastly (albeit nice looking) empty environment, mostly devoid of civilisation, only three temples to get the Master Sword (they shoehorned that one they couldn't be bothered to put in Wind Waker to make four*) with uninspiring bosses - and a fuckton of copy and pasted shrines. There are a few standouts shrines granted, but to be honest I can't think of anything that really stood out on the whole that I can tell peeps about. I fully intend to replay it at some point, and will do more at ground level, as a lot of distance was covered by climbing to the highest point in the direction I was travelling and then gliding onwards** to whichever bit I want to explore. Throughout the whole game, I only stole one horse from a bokoglobin, and that was what they gave me for the (final) Ganon battle, and I after completing the game I cannot see why I would bother attempting to get a different mount, or why I would've wasted time trying to "catch 'em all" - except they're all horses/deer - and it would have somehow improved my final boss experience. *I know it's a shitty joke. Suck it. ** I feel very confident I didn't miss much in the way of plot as a result, optional stuff - maybe, but my overall experience shouldn't force me to look elsewhere because the core experience is so lacking.
  19. I also can wade in here too. Side note: It all went downhill after Gold/Silver ¬_¬
  20. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    Shhhh don't jinx it. Not a bad lil presentation, they need to work on the script and timing for this... "narration" > Text says Girafarig is evolving > Evolution animation happens > Woman "oh, could Girafarig be evolving?!" Jesus...
  21. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    I know I've had this for decades, but it's never been an issue, the main issue has been going for about a month now. I'm going to see how it goes with some ice packs and knee sleeves before I think about attempting GP action.
  22. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    Fingers crossed! because the whole look makes me cringe so much, I cannae explain it.
  23. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    Nope, the ones they make you wear
  24. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    I hope they have decided to get rid of the stupid hats. Or at least not have them from the off.
  25. The Exercise & Fitness Thread: The Struggle Is Real

    Quick squats have always felt like a problem because of this, but it's usually a twinge that goes with as you say, slowing the reps. The weird thing is, is that it wasn't anything that-extreme that (I think was the cause) for setting it off. It mainly happened during one of the classes where we were doing a ski-lunge, touching the non-crossing knee, and raising our hands up before coming down as you alternate the lunge. Or it was a sideways step up, where one foot was always on the step, bring both up, and the other goes off. This was also with our arms straight up throughout. Maybe my knees just don't like it when my arms are outstretched... Well done on dem burpees. Fuck me doing them though, especially that quick, the come down on the jump, I don't think I've told you about my dicky knees, lemme begin...
