If you are a bot, you should post your bullshit here instead.

Gaming General / New AAA games on their own publishers platforms
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:51:37 PM »
Well I read that Fallout 76 will be on the Bethesda Launcher, not on Steam.  Fortnite apparently has done well,  I hear CoD 4 will be Battlenet only etc.  I can understand a few reasons for this but it is a bit frustrating too.

I've also read talk about when gaming moves to a Netflix type model, pay a monthly subscription(s) and have a licence to play game(s) for that month vs just buying it.  Might be interesting for some, but at times, knowing its on your account and they can't remove it is nice as well!

Gaming General / Patreon
« on: July 17, 2018, 05:27:28 AM »
Just wondering if anyone out there uses this to help contribute to someone/thing you enjoy?  I think its a pretty cool way to give funds pretty directly to someone you like, and get some extra rewards for it.

I haven't myself, but I see it growing, but luckily people aren't locking the base stuff behind it, more optional extra stuff

Movies & TV / Stranger Things

So got into this recently.  Currently got just the final of season two left now.  Enjoying watching an 80s show I couldn't have watched in the 80s (i was born 81).  I found that Lost Sister episode terrible, especially following the previous cliffhanger.

I'm enjoying Hopper just knock everyone out.  I hope the finale is 11 holding the shadow monster still, while hopper just punches it out.

PCs / Any good freeware backup tools?
« on: March 07, 2018, 02:21:43 PM »
Hello

With my recent issues, its highlighted a few areas I've been complacent.  I'm thinking at the moment its just one drive with Windows giving me grief, but there is a lot of stuff I don't want to lose on there.  Working on copying that off is another issue.  I'm aware that SSDs will one day die and thats it.

With all this in mind, is there a good freeware tool that can backup certain folders, keep them up to date in different hard drives, maybe a cloud copy too?  So if one source goes down, there are some other options.

Remember that thing Trump hated and got out of?  Well the other 11 countries are still going ahead, basically parked the things only the US wanted.  Now I hear Trump is talking about possibly rejoining/renegotiating lol

I'm sure they would like better access to the US, but they won't just bend over backward to make it all one way.

General Discussion / Do you drive with one foot or two?
« on: February 28, 2018, 03:46:54 AM »
I drive with two feet. Right gas. Left brake.

My wife is really against it and says she doesnít feel safe. For me itís in muscle memory. She is worried Iíd press both pedals at the same time. I read that newer cars would detect it and cut power to the engine.

I wanted to know what you do and why.

I mentioned if I change, I need to unlearn something, relearn and thatís not the safest in the meantime

Gaming General / Your newest games
« on: January 03, 2018, 04:10:00 PM »
I thought we could have a thread to say "Hey I just picked up this game".

I picked up a few from the Xmas sale and some money I got.
Bulletstorm (new version), really enjoyed the last one, this one has the option of Duke Nukem as a playable character, and steam achieves.
CoD MW4 Remastered.  Again .. an old game I enjoyed with some achievements etc
Serious Sam Bogus Detour.  It has Serious Sam in the title :P and achieves.
Omegaland.  This looks fun and was cheap
Plantera: same as above

Movies & TV / Last Jedi thoughts with spoilers
« on: December 19, 2017, 03:00:54 PM »
No thread yet, I'm sure most of us have seen this already.  I saw some talking on Facebook.

A few thoughts I had from my first and so far only viewing:

It seemed to go on a lot longer than I expected
There were a number of plot twist I didn't see coming
Diversity everywhere, this is very much a 2017 movie
Lots of character development
Maybe more humour than normal? There were a few times a bunch of people in the laughed out loud.
Only a few space battles or lightsabre action, but less than some others surely.
At least one kid did a WOOOOOAH moment when the rebel ship jumped and ripped through the other one.
Those penguin things are the new wookies?

Apart from some thoughts of .. "ok, they must be wrapping it up here, then, nope its still going!" I enjoyed it.

I have MANY questions, but I'm sure quite a few of you who know things outside the main movies will understand all the backstory.

I have seen headlines about controversy, but I haven't bothered to read it.  No Jar Jar, no cruddy teen romance.  Overall a pass from me.


I'm not sure how it will be with a 2nd or subsequent viewing.

The Argument Chamber / Zimbabwe and Mugabe
« on: November 23, 2017, 03:28:43 PM »
I'm not sure if this is making the news where you are, but after 37 years of corruption, a dictator has been forced to stand down.  He did many things wrong in his overlong time holding onto power. 500 billion% inflation at its peak is the type of stuff you'd only hear in movies.  At 93, he has lived far longer than he probably should have.  But when you can take state funds and fly yourself to the best hospitals around the world that is to be expected.

Who knows if his replacement will be an improvement.  I just know that I've been waiting for this day for a LONG time!

Gaming General / EA and Loot boxes
« on: November 21, 2017, 08:10:34 PM »
So, this sounds like a major PR disaster, anyone bought games affected by this?  I hear as well as the new Star Wars it was in the new Need for Speed, but patches are making it "not as bad"
