  1. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I'm super stoked about this. Haven't been this excited about a Nintendo device since GameCube! RE: Touchscreen and battery life, there are still rumours from the reliable sources, that basically confirmed all that we saw in the video, that suggest it still has touchscreen and motion control, but opted not to demo it in the video to avoid association with Wii and Wii U and mobile phones. And that the battery life might be somewhere around 3 hours (ooofff... is that similar to the 3DS?) although that might just be from prototyping. Who knows. All rumours, still. But coming from reliable sources. http://letsplayvideo EDIT: Ok, I figured 3 hours sounded like not a lot, but seems to be similar to both 3DS and the iPad 2. So I don't know if that sounds too bad anymore.. It'd be enough for the commute, at least.
  2. Still newer forum!

    Yeah, this is super nice! Much much better on mobile than the old one. Well done tabacco!
  3. Movie/TV recommendations

    It's loads of fun! I agree about all the characters, except I feel like the show has loads of self-awareness of it and makes sure Ash feels as stupid and old-guy as possible whenever his gross and insensitive jokes come up. Season 2 just started and it's great!
  4. Oh man, I have a feeling reader Alex is going to be sorely disappointed when Nintendo NX is revealed to not have backwards-compatibility (which the rumours are heavily pointing towards..)
  5. WIZARD JAM 2016 // Welcome Thread

    Any chance the Wizard Jam Idle Stream playthrough Part 2 will get a youtube upload at any point?
  6. The Next President

    I thought that said "Show humanity". That slide is surreal enough already..
  7. Plug your shit

    Experimenting/practicing face rigging in Cinema4D. Progress (and accurate depiction of my feelings while practicing) so far.
  8. No Man's Sky

    ... wait, so you can just install mods and go around discovering and naming everything without any of the survival stuff? I'm not too bothered by that, but that still bums me out a bit. Sooner or later a big portion will have this installed and the entire galaxy will be discovered way faster than intended.
  9. No Man's Sky

    I finally realised that you can Hide the HUD in the Graphics Settings. How did I not notice this shit before taking so many screenshots?! Anyway, here's my first HUD-less shot in 4K!
  10. No Man's Sky

    Oh man, yeah. Sorry, I forgot to post that here. It's been out since day one. Also! I installed the latest Nvidia drivers from the 16th and they massively improved my frame rate!
  11. No Man's Sky

    The PC control overlay is the wrong binding, apparently. It's "X" not Tab or whatever it says.
  12. No Man's Sky

    It's not super obvious, but you can definitely trace your route back to where you came from. Scanning for discoveries on the Galactic Map will show you your old discovered systems. Last time I scanned I found all my old systems, all the way back to my starter system, and one system discovered by a "Kenny".
  13. The Cutest Castle Ever! :tup:
  14. No Man's Sky

    I don't know how it compares to PS4 but you definitely see some pop-in (although they do it with some sort of dissolve transition instead of just a pop)
  15. No Man's Sky

    They did an update last night that massively improved the keyboard+mouse controls for me. Mouse movement is smooth and they removed/shortened the hold to confirm time on various UI elements. Or they didn't do an update and I imagined all these weird issues with the mouse... There aren't any change logs, so who knows?
  16. No Man's Sky

    I love this. So much.
  17. No Man's Sky

    You're probably right.
  18. No Man's Sky

    Nah, just a head start on discovering things, claiming planets and species (which, judging from the size they refer to, won't matter one bit!). I can't afford the game now anyway, so it doesn't matter for me.. I definitely did not mean that I intend to rush anything. I plan to just hunker down on an unclaimed planet and explore..
  19. No Man's Sky

    Little bummed that PS4 players get a head start on the PC crowd.. But man, I'm excited to play this! Those day-1 patch notes are just amazing. Also, the bonus "Next up.." info at the end.
  20. Whoa we're doing a Harry Potter podcast?

    Is.. The Harry Potcast dead?
  21. Stranger Things

    Ben X hates Drew Struzan and his compositional abilities.
  22. Stranger Things

    You'll deffo love this Stranger Things poster, Ben.
