  9. General Book Thread

    We get the occasional thread about books that never lasts long enough to get going, or rarely demands resurrecting. Please use this thread for your general book comments. I hope. Since I started work I've had a whole lot less time to do as I please, yet I've begun to read a hell of a lot more. I have a book for my train journeys called Shantaram, a 900-page epic that I'm not even half-way through yet and already it's been spell-binding and mind-opening. It's about an australian who has arrived in early 80's Bombay after escaping an Australian Jail, who falls in love with the city and its people. It is relentless, descriptive, engaging and optimistic. At night I tend to read The Corner before bed time (dan-likes-trees got the book too, or showed an interest, right?). It's from the writers behind The Wire, again set in Baltimore, centered around a couple of streets. it is more expansive than its sister show because there's a heavy political undertone; there are frequent essays into how the drug-fuelled culture is an impossible beast to tame, while at the same time there are believable lives played before the reader. To leave a few general questions for you - and don't feel you have to reply to any or all at once - Are you reading currently? Do you have a typical type of book? Do you buy books or borrow from the library? What was the last book you read? What is your favourite book? When do you read? And so on. Don't all rush at once.
  10. Wrinkly Balloons.

    Rediscovered something yesterday; when a tired old balloon has started to shrink and it gets all wrinkly, I like to gently place my finger or hand on the wrinkles and let the rubber tighten up. Lol. My cousins - NEITHER COULD DO IT. Whadafuq? I'm not the only one who can do it eh?
  11. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I caught a ghastly on teh first day, and it was on my desk at work (this is pre- "oh I can turn off AR" on the timeline). Got home and there was a Haunter waiting on my desk, too! Night time I get more ghastlies, oddishes and venonats around my present location. Not actually actively played after 7pm so that's just a survey of what is nearby when I'm at home. Ima head out soon myself just to walk along the beach. Just hit lvl 17 and less bothered about levelling up, more bothered about catching and evolving new pokemon! i've caught 62 and seen 63, with a growlithe and an eggsecute from a pair of eggs hatched yesterday. So fun!
  12. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    from what i hear there's little point in wasting your stardust on powering pokes up until you're a higher level. The higher level you are, the ligher base level CP pokes will have. As in; you can catch two weedles and you can max out teh candy/stardust and one will be more powerful than the other.... then you'll level up and catch one with a higher CP! My understanding is that you should following formulaic (please bear in mind the numbers are estimates only); Catch A ZILLION POKEMON, trade in A BILLION for candy, then pop a lucky egg and evolve A MILLION of 'em, then BAMMO you're a higher level sooner, and you can catch the more badass pokes. I've largely failed at this so far. Great way to catch A ZILLION POKEMON; sit near two pokestops, attach a lure to each (or be in a group to share the lure requirement), activate incense. You should see 3+ pokes appear every 5 mins, and nab enough pokeballs from teh stops to keep yourself going. I've basically done this twice so far. Personally, what I really want to do is go for a proper long walk along brighton seafront as there's a lot of water pokes there (obv), as opposed to the bug/flying/forest types round my way. Train stations and bus exchanges seem to be good for electric types, from what I've seen. There are a bunch of churchyards/graveyards near me, which is good for psychic/ghost types. Not figured a good place for rock/ground types yet.
  13. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    Been playing since US release, and I've really loved seeing how this has impacted the real world. Everyone has heard about it. People are playing it who can't name 10 pokemon from the first generation. People (me) are going for a walk for no real reason but to play this. After work one day, I went to my local park and there's this spot with three pokestops close to each other, and 50+ people sitting around having a lure party. Went to town to do shopping. Sat and had a drink with some mates and caught 22 voltorbs. My friends are talking about buying a day saver ticket for the buses that go round Brighton as a tactic to rapidly hit up loads of pokestops for pokeballs, then go to spot x or spot y to have another lure party. I've managed to get into a gym once because I'm still only lvl 15, but I then trained a bunch and got my badge for that. Excited to see what they have in store in terms of rolling out other Gen pokemon - especially considering I couldn't name you 3 pokemon beyond gold/silver. As for this game changing the way Nintendo focuses on its consoles/games... well it's clearly a fresh new revenue stream, and I thnk it's incredibly smart for Nintendo to have gone this way considering how console gaming is less and less relevant.
  14. Has C-E + R-E = gone

    But we have pokemon Go now. Where's the thread? I think someone's de-activated a whole bunch of my stuff so I can't even see the nintendo board. (hello again)
  15. Payday 2

    Ok so I tried to find a thread but all i found was a thread with one reply in 2012 for the first game. First; anyone play? PM me! So! Payday 2 is an online multiplayer heisting game. FPS with skilltrees and perks and levelling up. There are TWO main forms of heists; stealth and loud. There are about... 35 missions to choose from which have various objectives. Stealthing is HARD but REWARDING. If you enjoy dishonored's stealthing (sans super powers) or love hitman then you will find creeping into a warehouse and stealing 20 bags of loot (servers, coke, money, weapons, paintings...) without being spotted to be an absolute blast. If you enjoy Left 4 Dead, with its waves of regular and special enemy then you'll enjoy combatting the cops and swat in Payday 2. Just like L4D's 'director' the levels are very dynamic. items spawn in different places - objectives are in different places. Guard spawns and routes are different and unpredictable. Loot can be in different places, and the enemy waves are randomised - as are the special enemy spawns. No heist played twice is the same. The best part is that the game (on PC especially) is frequently updated with new DLC content - both paid and free. You can play any heist - even ones you haven't paid for - by joining that heist's lobby from the heist select screen. I'm really just looking for people to play with -- if you have a copy on PC then please PM me your steam name - I play pretty much every day. If you don't have a copy but would be interested then let me know - I may have a gift for you :P Oh, and the music is awesome. Quick STEALTH video of the quickest stealth heist. You will be chuffed when you do this successfully either as a team or - real challenge - by yourself; And next is a video of when a stealth goes loud - alarm goes and the cops will arrive shortly; (see 2:55 for the beat break - yum!) (inb4 "i hate this music" comments. You can customise if you must) My biggest complaint with the game is that there is no decent introductory tutorial at all. There are game mechanics that you have to just figure out (unless you play with me - I would be happy to advise!). Luckily the community is really good - anyone who plays the game a lot will much prefer new players to ASK QUESTIONS rather than just stay silent and fuck shit up. By biggest compliment is that I only started playing just before halloween and I have seen five new heists added, three new characters, a new skill tree -- all of which you can play for free (to an extent), as well as numerous other DLCs and updates/alterations which are free and cost money. There's also two heists to come shortly which everyone in the community is psyched about. This video shows the GO Bank heist - a nod to a CS:GO map. Shows you some of the madness that happens when things go loud; And lastly here is a rundown of some of the game mechanics - may be video overload but I don't expect anyone to have watched the above. There have been some mechanical updates on PC but worth checking out as it's a great introductory video (which I found after I wrote this post so hat-tip at the references in the vid I mentioned); So once again - if you have the game then come play with me! If you don't but are interested then give me a shout as well! [edit] And just to say this is one of the top 10 most played games on Steam every week. Vibrant community even 2 years after it first came out, and with two more years of promised content. Check it out.

  18. Steamy Lovers Join A...

    Thanks for the messages - apologies for being a shit forumer for the last year (and beyond) - but I still check this place (nearly) daily and I genuinely appreciate the attention (why lie?). however Moogle overstepped the mark with the mundane shit about symmetry. That was just zzz. Even for me. :P
