  1. Weight Loss and Fitness 2016

    How long have you been doing your routine? The only reason I look anything like I do is because I've been at this for years. I've eaten clean for probably longer (I indulge my sweet tooth maybe once a week, if that, but for a whole two years I didn't eat chocolate, cake or any sugar treats...somehow). I didn't drink – except on the rare occasion – for even longer than that. And the lighting in the gym is on point. The secret? Time and consistency. You might be getting to the point where aesthetically, the rate of your improvements is going to appear to slow down. I think I mentioned to @Blade a while back that there comes a point when the scales aren't going to be a good indication of your progress anymore. My recommendation is always to set fitness targets like aiming to lift a certain weight or run a certain distance/pace. We all have days we think we feel fat but knowing you can still hit that benchmark is going to keep you going. BTW, I don't do any cardio. Just to hint that I think that choosing between weights and cardio doesn't matter when it comes to weight loss, as long as you are doing something (I would suggest that there's an added bonus to weights where you improve the shape of your body and hold fat better). I'm not saying you shouldn't do cardio, I just haven't the time to work it into my routine at the moment. I walk a lot (96,664 steps this past week yaaass) but I know it's not really the same thing.
  2. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Sorry, I keep seeing this but...can you ELI5 what an IV is and how it works?
  3. Suicide Squad (2016)

    I've heard it's not great. Embargo lifts in an hour so we'll see. Empire 4/5 Time Out 4/5 Drew McWeeny at HitFlix B+ ... IGN 5.9 Time Magazine thought it was weak It seems like it's a little divisive. Some people thought it was a blast but not revolutionary in any way while it fell flat for others. Guess everyone's going to have to decide where they stand by themselves.
  4. Yesteryeargames has passed away

    Didn't really click when Ashley told me, until I saw his avatar. Very sad news. He has my thoughts
  5. Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

    I'm really enjoying Action Comics. I've never properly read Superman going but yeah, loving the two current ones.
  6. Star Trek Beyond

    Got to say, Yorktown was spectacular. It's been a while since I've been wowed like that. It was such a cool design.
  7. Virtual Reality

    Yasss folders. Yeah, I cannot fucking wait for VR. Might have a chance to give PSVR later this afternoon. I've only given the Oculus DK2 and the Galaxy one...which was surprisingly good. My brother got a Vive but I've not had a change to have a go on it yet.
  8. Job woes/wins

    I'm finishing up the first week of my new job. It kind of feels like my first real job. People respect me and shit. I'm used to that but not in an official capacity. I was up in Norwich for the start of the week. Got to expense dinner so obviously I found out what the max I could spend was and bought myself the biggest steak accordingly, and maxed it out with the tip. I might have to request a company phone because I'll be shooting between places a fair amount. My desk is awesome. By the window in the corner of the office so I can look at porn Pokemon all I like. Oh, and I think I like the actual work.
  9. Virtual Reality

    Or at least WipeOut. Imagine Zone Mode to your own music in VR. Stupid fucking Sony... At least they're finally introducing folders.
  10. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I've caught 75 pokemon, seen 78. Of the three that got away from me, two were beacuse the game crashed. The third was a Pikachu that I used a Razz Berry, threw Great Curve ball and he ran off once he broke out. Fair play to him, that fucker wanted freedom. I'm level 18, too. I need more Eevees to power up my Vaporeon.
  11. Star Trek Beyond

    Thought this was great. So so sooooo much better than that dreck Into Darkness. It did feel a little rough at points and a bit OTT at others but it was easily the most Star Trek of the new films. Definitely not as good as the first one but yeah, really enjoyable.
  12. Weight Loss and Fitness 2016

    Just embrace it. Be proud. You can't count on other people to celebrate your achievements. That's what I convinced myself anyway.
  13. I think the double controller thing is really unnecessary. However, everything else is sounding great. I have thought for quite some time now that Nintendo would be much better suited supporting one platform, not two completely different ones. I'm excited. Right now it all comes down to form factor, which I don't really have much faith in Nintendo with. Their first iterations aren't always the best, but really that's a detail. I can't wait for the reveal.
  14. Weight Loss and Fitness 2016

    I've started a new job so while I'm going to make sure I hit the gym at least four times a weeks it's going to be at odd times. I'll have to work out a new routine which is kind of lame but it's got to be done. Sorry, is what incredibly stupid?
  15. Wonder Woman (2017)

    I absolutely loved this bit the most, the way the bullet rattle combined with the music was superb and the way the shield is knocked about gives a real physicality to it.
  16. Star Trek Masturbatathon

    Yeah, I labelled this thread normally, it was changed by a mod. To be fair, Star Trek 2009 was amazing.
  17. DC Cinematic Universe Discussion

    I think Cyborg looks much better in motion. It's much more terminator than I expected and it's still over a year out so there is plenty of time to improve the CGI (I'm suprised it looks as good as it does tbh). I like the Flashes, but I'd like a more prominent white background behind his logo.
  18. DC Cinematic Universe Discussion

    Justice League, special footage. Plenty of Aquaman.
  19. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Ooooo, how exciting. I think I'll be going for a long walk this weekend. Even more old-school is that I'll probably need a battery pack for my phone. Ha!

  21. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    So I just downloaded it and...I don't seem to be near any pokemon. Do I just...walk around? And they turn up?
