  1. What Have You Bought?

    That sofa doesn't exactly scream back and lumbar support either - did you get a chance to try it out in person?
  2. Hades (PC, Switch)

    So I bought this [email protected] told me to (although I have had my eye on it after it won all those GOTY awards). I was a bit reluctant to buy because I dislike 2D games, and I don't really like the pixel art style. I've also never played a Rogue-ish game; the premise doesn't really appeal to me. However, I bought it, and have played a few runs. Got to a boss, but died (are the bosses always in the same order?). Enjoyed using the shield, but might try the spear next. Still a bit uneasy about the Rogue aspect of the game, but the fact that you can build up boons and extras makes it a bit more palatable. The combat is quite satisfying, even more so when you get more powerful. I do find myself wanting to try another run though. It's very...moreish.
  3. I also think that a lot of fans have elevated Mike and Bryan to an almost god status, and think that if they're involved, it's going to be as good as ATLA. I'm not saying it won't be, but do we have any evidence that they still know what they're doing? TLOK was good, but wavered towards the end (giant robot fight, I'm looking at you). The fact that they keep exiting projects could point to something being wrong with them, rather than assuming that they're infallible, and it's always someone else's fault. I have no idea, I'm just trying to see both sides of the story.
  4. DC Cinematic Universe Discussion

    I was just thinking we needed another Superman reboot. Hopefully we find out more about his origins in this one.
  5. General Movie Thread

    I expect one of the boys is going to have to make a decision at some point to let the other one die in order to become a real boy himself. Or maybe they're made orphans at the beginning of the film. Or maybe an asteroid just hits the town halfway through.
  6. I think the whole Zutara thing has been blown out of proportion. One person on Reddit for whipped up into a froth about it, and now everyone is taking it as read that's the reason for the age change. For a start, I don't think the age change is confirmed officially? Even if it is, it could just be that they found a good actress who is older than the actor they found for Sokka. Whatever happens, unless the live action series is a shot for shot remake, most people are going to be unhappy with it. I think it's good they are doing to make some new content, and not rehash the old stuff.

    That looks pretty good! I'm ready to be disappointed again!
  8. Listening to some Daft Punk radio on Spotify, and discovered this banger:

    Alright, i'll give Hades a go.
  10. General Switch Discussion

    I've had nothing to play on my Switch since I finished BOTW. Someone recommend something for me to play that has actually been released.

  12. I can't really comment on whether SS is a good game or not - I have played it, but I don't really like Zelda games, so never finished it. However, the price of this (we can just say 'price', no need for anything else) is what concerns me. When they released the 3D Mario trilogy, it already seemed a bit pricey at £50 for 3 re-released games. Now they release a single remastered game for the same price? It was £60 at release in 2011, and it came with a free controller! I was looking forward to the potential announcement of the Metroid trilogy on the Switch, as I've never played 2 and 3, and would quite like the opportunity. How much are they going to charge though?
  13. General TV Thread

    I find it difficult on The Expanse as well because all of the spaceships and space stations have different names too, and I keep forgetting which one is which. It doesn't really matter though, you can just enjoy the cool space battles - pew pew pew!
  14. General TV Thread

    To be honest, there aren't many events in season 4 that are referenced, so you should be okay.
