  1. Worth watching it on YouTube to see Sean, Jake and Scoops in the flesh. And Jeff's crazy eyes.
  2. The Witcher 3: What Geralt Wants

    4 hours-ish in and I'm still wandering around White Orchard, the starter area that's pretty bloody big to be fair. Loving just walking around the world - the combination of high / ultra and post-processing settings I'm using has it locked in at 60 frames / 1080p and the whole thing has an awesome, colourful painterly look about it.
  3. Cracking episode - really can't wait for the end. If Mad Men's shown me anything, it's that I have no idea what's going to happen.
  4. UK Thumbs

    I think it's pretty well known that it's Shin Feign, it's all the other weird Irish words and names that are the problem.
  5. Grand ThVmb Auto PC

    Yeah, something in the chain is reporting something wrong. Current setting's working fine though - fairly high settings locked at 60 FPS and 1080p - so I'm not gonna mess around much more with them.
  6. Grand ThVmb Auto PC

    I set the game to 59Hz and vsync off in its options, then turned on adaptive vsync in the Nvidia control panel to lock it at 60 FPS. The game options would only let me choose 29 and 59, weirdly.
  7. Nope, we have Sky Atlantic which picks up things like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men; so it gets jumbled in as "HBO".
  8. Yeah, it's not the most difficult mistake to make - these three-letter names all merge in to one.
  9. Mad Men's back, the sun's out and Rich Sommer's done an interview about Firewatch - - aw yeah.
  10. I have an amazing latex pillow which people always scoff at (because of the (recommended retail) price, which I didn't pay), until they try it then they think it's the best thing ever. So much to be said for not skimping on your mattress and pillows.
  11. IDLE THUMBS 200

    Sat here in my Thumbs' shirt listening to Idle Thumbs 200, the motherfuckin' sixer. Congrats Nick (and everyone).
  12. Where in the World - Idle Thumbs Map

    Hi there! If you see a 30-something someone with not much hair and an Idle Thumbs t-shirt in Leeds, it's probably me.
  13. the Talos Principle

    Well this was pretty much fantastic, did a couple of endings and spent about 17 hours doing them. Think I might keep it installed and try for some more stars (got a measly four) and see what's happening on the Steam Workshop. It's one of those puzzle games where you can be lost for quite a long time, go eat a sandwich, come back and solve it in thirty seconds - my favourite kind. Leave it, rent it or buy it? Buy it.
  14. General Video Game Deals Thread

    John Walker over at Rock Paper Shotgun absolutely loved Hexcells, and that prices looks pretty good to me.
  15. the Talos Principle

    My install folder is 5GB.
  16. Crusader K+ngs II

    Picked CKII up super-cheap through Nuveem (Brazilian site) yesterday - I'm listening to old Thumbs and I'm just past Nick and Chris's tales of Ragnar, couldn't resist.
  17. Euro Truck Simulator 2

    You can go from completely automatic to completely manual gears (using a fancy h-shifter joystick thing) - I usually have it in the mode where I select reverse, neutral or forwards and it handles the gearing. Binding the cruise control key to your controller is handy too.
  18. The Blu-ray boxset smells good, much better than The Sopranos one. I believe your homework is the original pilot (not the international one) - it's 94 minutes long.
  19. Other podcasts

    I would recommend Pocket Casts (I use it every day on my HTC One M8).
  20. Other podcasts

    This is really good! They offer you a week's trial for free, then a one-off cost of $9 to use it forever. I bought it straight away because the people who make Pocket Casts have always been great at responding to my issues and fixing them super quick.
  21. Euro Truck Simulator 2

    Can link the multiplayer now I'm at home - It reminds me of the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod in how it's a launcher that runs the Steam version of the game and does fancy stuff behind the scenes to get over a 1000 people on to a server.
  22. Idle Thumbs 178: CS Losers

    Sad that the Android version has no leaderboard
  23. Euro Truck Simulator 2

    Yep! The multiplayer mod (ETS2MP) is well done and fun, and SCS are still patching and adding to it - they just put in achievements.
