  1. General TV Thread

    So there's a general move thread and there is an oooooold general TV thread and I don;t want to start a new thread for Grey's Anatomy since I'm sure no one cares...but I need an outlet. Just watched the Season 5 finale of Grey's Anatomy. Holy shit-balls was that sad. Anyone else seen it? I think the 007 bit broke me.
  2. Simply outstanding. 10/10
  3. Virtual Reality

    Will Sony Computer Entertainment announce a virtual reality headset all of its own tonight? This will be a very interesting watch. This will live or die by whether it is proprietary or not. I have a sneaking suspicion it won't be.
  4. So I don't get Ticket to Ride. I've only played it twice and I realised Europe is a death trap full of inadequately short lines to waste time on. I fucking hate it...kind of. ...Okay, I'm just bitter. Anyway, anyone else play boardgames regularly? I often play Catan, FLUXX (I'm including card games), Battlestar Galactica and Pandemic. Anyone else a regular boardgamer?
  5. Injustice 2

    Now Injustice 2 has leaked IT'S HAPPENING!!
  6. Destiny 2

    I'm 99% sure Whisper is available all the time now. During any Public Event in the Lost Oasis.
  7. Destiny 2

    @Map Fancy doing the Pyramdion later. I hear it's a 'boot you to orbit when you wipe' strike. Also, with @MilaGi Heroic 'Zero Hour' run? If not tonight, sometime this week?
  8. Destiny 2

  9. Destiny 2

    @Map That would be ace actually. I need to run it for the Izanagi quest and to use the tokens from the Wish...bow quest thing
  10. Destiny 2

    Austringer with 'Subsistence' and 'Rampage' is low-key fucking insane (Plus Accurized Rounds). Obviously the diminished reserves is a real sticking point. But...holy hell, in the right circumstances this thing is an exotic-level weapon. Imagine never needing to reload and proc-ing Rampage x3 with ease...until you run out of ammo. I'm keeping it for when they buff Subsistence.
  11. Destiny 2

    I was going to message people when there were enough online but I think I ended up getting distracted by a quest.
  12. Destiny 2

    Anyone want to do the OG Leviathan raid tonight? Or the raid lairs or one of the other ones? Also, I just want to say I have been having so much fun on this. I feel like it's finally become the game I always hoped it would be and (especially having seen the choices Digital Extremes have made with Warframe) I am super excited to see where Bungie take it now they are independent. The absolute highlight has been Zero Hour. I don't think I've played a bit of content that needed repeating as often and was still as engaging every time I ran through it.
  13. As @Ashley pointed out, Buzzwole is one of my favourites. He's just so utterly bizarre but kind of amazing. Him and Marshadow I absolutely love.
  14. Destiny 2

    I'm torn between looking stuff up and just letting stuff happen. I'm going to resist the temptation to check which one the Whisper quest is...but I think I have a good idea. Just to get the ball rolling... We've all done the first raid. What is the 'raid' after and what is the light level requirement?
  15. Destiny 2

    The hardest part was getting from 300 to 330 lol. Since passing that level, maybe I hit a part of the story that allowed it, I have skyrocketed up. Maybe I've been lucky with drops too. But there was a point where Ikora gave me a package and I was like 'Why do I want this blue trash' and it was like 150+ light levels than what I was on.
  16. Destiny 2

    @Map @MilaGi @Deathjam @Eddage I'm definitely for some raiding. Like Eddage, I've only done the first raid. Would be neat to do the others. I'm like light level 600 odd at the moment. I don't know what the requirements for the raids are. I know @DriftKaiser has recently got back into the game so hopefully we'll be able to get a team together I think I'll be playing it far more casually than I ever used to so whenever is good for everyone
  17. Destiny 2

    I picked up Forsaken and played it over the weekend. I'm not sure if it's just because my expectations were super low, but I just loved it. Did the Barons and then the 'Nothing Left to Say' mission. There were hints of it during Taken King but this is what Destiny missions should have been from day one. Genuinely well written (it's not Shakespeare, not that that really needs saying, but it really delivers what it's trying to), varied objectives, surprising mechanics. The tone walked a great line between serious, epic and fun. I'd definitely like to give the raids a go if anyone is up for it.
  18. 1080p and 60fps. Can't wait to replay this. Hopefully they'll balance the combat in Uncharted 3. That's my only big issue. Less bullet sponges, please. No multiplayer but Beta access to Uncharted 4, I think.
  19. Job woes/wins

    So, basically it ended up that the account doesn't need me anymore which has left me kind of aimless at work and I'm not really getting regular briefs from the other accounts. I don't think this sustainable for obvious reasons and it's only a matter of time before they tell me that. In the meantime I've been speaking to recruiters and all that. I have an interview today for somewhere that I'm meh about. But we'll see. The money is better but the direction of work isn't really what I'm looking for and it's about time in my career that I settle on a specialty – I'm kind of bored of being a jack of all trades and master of none. Maybe I'll change my mind when I talk see this new place. But I doubt it.
  20. Ah, yeah, at first I had it flat on the sofa next to me but I found a way to easily prop it up and have it sitting in front of me. If you can have it so it's easy to glance at on a stand, I 100% recommend it. Also, I went the other way with GPS and turned it on. I use the 'cinematic' thing a lot to auto-ride and just pay attention for any blips that pop up on the radar. I tend to switch between cinematic and manual quite a lot; usually manual when I have a good idea where to go and the auto when the journey requires a lot of turns and looking at the map and screen at the same time is impractical. When I'm not going anywhere in particular, having the map on the app isn't an issue. Yes, it's slightly more convenient to have it on the screen but it's also butt-ugly and I much prefer it without.
  21. I had this issue too and I realised a setting on my TV meant to enhance Blacks was actually crushing them in RDRII (at least in the calibration screen).
  22. I get criticisms about the game being slow (animations and looting and such), but it's clearly pretty deliberate and I actually really appreciate it. The world feels lush and alive. I was riding to a waypoint yesterday when a thunder storm hit, it looked unbelievable. The controls are another matter. They feel at best clunky, at worst convoluted. I think I'm getting used to them but they are certainly jarring at first. The inventory system is kind of trash. The absolute worst thing is the tutorials in the upper left-hand corner that appear as you're doing something. It was telling me how to quick-draw in a duel as the duel was happening...and there was no way I was going to win that one. Seems to happen a lot. And it's really shitty. But I guess that'll be less of an issue as the game goes on. I'm using the app and have the mini-map disabled on the man screen. I reeeeeeeeeeally love having virtually no HUD.
  23. Super Mario Party

    I cancelled my pre-order because there aren't enough boards.
  24. Fortnite

    Then who gives a shit? It's just one stupid game. One game gets cross-play/save? And that's it? Forgive me for not praising or damning Sony for an utterly pointless gesture. Wake me up when cross-play is standard across all games. 'Other titles'. Am I hallucinating this statement? What have you heard that point to the contrary?
  25. Fortnite

    I don't deny Sony held things up, but why is that a bad thing? like I said, Fortnite is a pretty homogenised experience, but what about my Warframe example? If cross-play/progression/commerce makes sense, then it is worth doing properly. So either this is just another singular exception (and a PR stunt), or it marks real change to all cross-platform games. So, which one do you think it is?
