  1. Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon (November 17th 2017)

    Not far in but that woman in white is already pissing me off like she did last time. Daft bitch.
  2. Job woes/wins

    So HQ called me just before 5. They offered me the job! Shocked! But chuffed!
  3. Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon (November 17th 2017)

    Often it's down to the mood I'm in when I play them. When Moon came out, I don't think I was really wanting to play a Pokemon game, but I bought it anyway. Now I actually want to play it, I'm hoping it will be a bit of a better experience.
  4. Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon (November 17th 2017)

    I just bought Ultra Moon based on @Glen-i's posts about the mechanics of Pokemon - inspiring me to play again. I was going to pick up Alpha Sapphire as I had that game but don't even remember playing it... but thought I'd go with the newest in the hope it has more of an impact on me than when I played Moon originally. Which I wasn't a huge fan of...
  5. Job woes/wins

    Nice work Cube. I've been working at the same company for 12 years this year (big bank). Done loads of different roles in my time there but had kind of stood still the last few years and not progressed - purely because nothing that has suited me has been advertised. Last year I moved to an entirely new area of the bank, different location so slightly further to travel, but nothing like what I'd done before. Same grade and pay, but more techy with the view that it could help open doors to progression. Been doing that role for around 8=9 months now and not really enjoying it much at all. Myself and a work mate are both the same grade. There's a guy who is doing the exact same role as us day to day, but is a higher grade. He earns about £6k a year more than us. We've raised that it isn't really fair that he's doing the same job day to day, but gets paid so much more and her response is basically, deal with it - it wont change. Stop getting so wound up about it. I'm a bit annoyed because he wasn't there when I started and that higher paid role didn't exist. The first week I began working there my manager told me that the job was going up on the board and said "kinda sucks for you as I guess you'd have applied for that one". I was like, um yeah. Anyway I've stuck it out and feeling a bit underappreciated. I do some great stuff for the team and for her, and it's as if she can't say thank you. Or show any sort of gratitude unless its her idea. Someone told me about a team leader role in my old department where I used to work which is much more up my street. My application is showing as 'advance to interview' so I guess I will get an interview date soon. In addition to that, I've just come home from an interview in an entirely different business all together. TL role in the police headquarters where I live. I applied on a whim and had to write a 2000 word essay as to why I wanted the job, and my experience. Well, I rushed a half an hour submission as my manager was in a meeting and I did it before she came out, sent it and forgot about it. 4 days later I had an email to say I had passed that and was invited to an interview which was this morning. Went ok. Answered everything. But I felt like with the way the questions were asked, they're looking for someone who has managed people before day to day. I haven't. I have done management in others abesence, and led teams on initiatives etc, but not full blown leadership. I gave some of my better examples as they thankfully fit the questions, but we'll see. Should find out today she said! No messing. I don't really want to leave the company I'm with now, so my eggs are all kinda in the basket of the TL job I'm waiting for an interview for. It's my old department so I know how it all works and some of the people etc - be ideal. Fingers crossed one of them works out!
  6. The ever changing mechanics of Pokemon

    This has been a fantastic read so far. You can tell I'm not a competitive battler as I'm reading about all of these stat changes and I'm all :O. I'm looking forward to you getting onto Black / White as those games were where the series returned to form for me. I still maintain that B/W (and no, not B/W 2) are the best in the series by a long way. I always said that was Gen 1, but a lot of that is just nostalgia. You've made me want to play Pokemon again now anyway haha. If I didn't hate Moon so much when I played it I'd try again with Ultra Moon but just don't think it's worth it.
  7. Nintendo Labo (april 27th 2018)

    Yeah but if you buy it now, it'll remain on your shelf like your other unplayed games until he's like, 11, and he'll be interested then.
  8. Nintendo Event - TONIGHT 10pm

    I like what they’re doing here although wouldn’t personally invest into it myself. My only worry would be if this kind of thing spilled over into their ‘main games’, like Mario Kart or Zelda etc. It’ll likely sell well for them, but I don’t really want the main focus of the Switch to alter after its had such a strong start. Hopefully this can just run alongside the other more traditional releases in harmony...!

    Mega hyped for this. Although I still see these stupid power shots. Let them go already. Or please allow us to turn them off at least!

    I swear if this is a new fuckin Fire Emblem I’ll lose my shit. May as well just rebrand to FireEmblemTendo as that’s all that seems to ever come out of these directs!
  13. Resident Evil VII

    Don't let anyone warn you off 5. It's co-op perfection. Whilst it is slightly more action than the previous games it's a fantastic co-op game and the story isn't too bad although it obviously verges on silly at times. Typical RE. Even in co-op I wouldn't recommend 6. It's awful. But I've read some comments over the years from people who want the series to go in this direction again (shudder) so some might enjoy it.
  14. Xbox One Console Discussion

    Just got a haul on the Xbox sales. Batman telltale series 1 and 2. Resident Evil 5 to co-op for the fourth time . LIfe is Strange. Resident Evil Revelations. Also currently playing a game called Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Really enjoying it. Pretty unique style of gameplay. Finished What Remains of Edith Finch yesterday. Not sure how I felt about it. Some pretty good stories, and again some unique gameplay ideas like playing through the comic book etc. But I didn't invest emotionally in it like I expected to. Maybe that says more about me than the game itself though :D.
