  1. Books, books, books...

    I've recently finished I Am Legend which I got through pretty quickly. I was surprised to see that it got so much flak when it was first released, but I think it's worth a read if you like dystopian stuff. I also connected to it pretty strongly as my girlfriend and I just moved to Vietnam and we were feeling pretty lonely considering the whole "we've got no friends and don't know anyone here" thing. I also read The Wasp Factory which I liked it a lot. It's creepy, unsettling, quite funny and has a good pace to it. I think I would've loved it if I had read it in my teens as. Anyone else read 'em?
  2. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I'm gonna buy a Nintendo Switch on payday which is in 14 days. Not that I'm counting. It'll mark my first ever Nintendo home console. I've had many a gameboy and I even bought a 3DS a couple of years ago. But I was a Playstation/Xbox kid through and through growing up. I've just been playing Hearthstone on my iPad a lot recently and I feel the cravings for something "gamier". I'm gonna pick up a first party game and an indie game maybe too. Mario is probably more my thing right off the bad, but maybe I'll pick up BoTW in a month or two. Have you guys got any recommendations for ridiculously good indie games I could get? If there multiplayer and I can play them with my girlfriend then even better.
  3. What Remains of Edith Finch

    Well I'm surprised I'm the first person to reply to this especially given its similarity to things like Gone Home and Firewatch in terms of genre at least. My overall impression of it was very impressive. I think the start of the game starts out much stronger than it ends, but I feel like I did the game a disservice by playing it in a few 45min to 1 hour chunks like I did. I feel like I would've enjoyed it much more if I had sat down and done it in 1 or 2 goes. I really liked the way each story felt super unique and some of them were more gameplay heavy and the others were more like watching a movie. What was your favourite story? I'm not sure how much of a spoiler the previous paragraph is, but I thought I'd put a tag on there just in case.
  4. The McElroy Family of Products

    Yeah, I remember him saying that but surely like the TV mics and when they've done live stuff you'd be able to notice something like that before. Right? I feel like I'm going crazy

    Ooooooooooh. I've just downloaded the whole series to my phone! So excited to watch it on the metro. Although I imagine I'll have to contain a lot of my laughter in public which should be interesting. I'll let you know what I think about the series when I finish it all. I feel sorry for ya'll who wanted the TAZ prequel arc to be short. I'm enjoying it, but I do hope it's coming to a close.
  6. Yeah, I get that. I still get overwhelmed even with a few hundred hours under my belt. Have you been tempted back to try it? I found just picking a character and sticking with them helped a lot.
  7. Oh that's a shame. Any ideas what caused the headache? What do you think is putting you off it so much? I'd like to offer some "it gets more [adjective here]" advice but I'm not sure if it'll help coz I pretty much loved it from the outset.
  8. I made it into Masters! Yay! Now for GM. But probably not. Although the other day I got placed against the 137th ranked Tracer and beat them. If I play European morning times I come against people who are a good 500SR higher than me and I manage to hold my own somehow. I've actually made a new account to practice other characters in comp and I'm trying out Ana, Rein and Pharah. Strangely enough Pharah is probably my least favourite of the 3. ANNIVERSARY STUFF TODAY! woot woot.
  9. It's nearly the 1 year anniversary of OW! Are we pumped!? Who's on the hype train for a new hero? Do you think they'll finally drop the Doomfist bomb shell? I wonder what he'll be like? Tank or DPS? Sluggish and a big hitter or a glass cannon? I'd honestly be surprised if they dropped him for the celebration as I think Orisa is still in a terrible place and she came out relatively recently. She seems so out of place to me in the world of OW. Did you guys play much competitive? I'm at 3169 at the moment after a high of 3266 super near the start of the season. I fell down to 2704 which kind of shows how much of a variance there is in terms of team mates/luck/trolls/leaers etc. Surely I can't be varying day to day to the tune of 600+ SR? I'm maining Tracer at the moment and I'm planning on getting her golden guns. She's so much fun. I gave Pharah a go but man is she hard to play. I'm also gonna try Rein out a bit more as I love him so much. It's super hard to practice those characters in QP due to them being so dependent on team comp.
  10. I found a lot of my problems when I was playing at lower levels were due to positioning. As Soldier you ALWAYS want to take the high ground especially at the beginning of maps. Like on KIng's Row when you're defending up on the roof behind the statue is a great place to be. There's plenty of guides online about where to be. I'd also try to be constantly aware of where you are in regards to your team as you don't ever want to overextend or get into a 2v1 or even worse.

    What are people thinking about the new style TAZ? It seems like Griffin's definitely gone for a more hands-off approach for the DM'ing. I thinks it's pretty interesting and to be honest I just love listening to the McElroys exist so I'd be happy with a lot of their stuff when they work as a unit. I feel like one day they'll just blow up in the mainstream, but I'm not sure when, how, why, who, what. It seems insane that these guys are so funny and talented and are constricted to a few popular podcasts and youtube serieseseses.
  12. What do you guys think of the new expansion? I got super lucky in my packs and got 4 legendaries (one golden!) and was able to make a few decks which I liked a lot. I haven't had much time to sit down and give it a go as I've been obsessed with Overwatch recently and that's taking up all my time. I can't really imagine how Blizzard will keep going with expanding the game by 500 odd cards a year when the focus seems to be on "new and players returning after a break" especially considering how exepensive the game is. I've heard people claiming upwards of $400 dollars to complete this expansion. That's just this expansion. Not that you'd need to do that, but still even $50 for a 50 pack booster pack with no guarentees of anything seems bananas to me. How is it being back after some time off Roderick?
  13. I really like the PVE stuff and I'm really glad the skins revolved around something Overwatch based and not a seasonal real life thing. I hope they keep doing that. The Blackwatch stuff is so interesting and McCree's and Genji's skins are just fantastic. I'd be really surprised if they ever did a full-blown co-op thing as I would've expected that to ship with the game, and would be pretty difficult to get right after the game has been out for so long. I've started playing a few different characters now instead of just Soldier as I was getting sick of him in ranked games and I could only play a few characters. I decided to give Mei a go... in the week where she was fundamentally broken and had a moment of "hmmm... how come when I play her noone ever gets frozen but enemy Meis freeze me instantly". And it was completely justified. Bad luck I guess. Then I tried Pharah and my God is she difficult to play. She's pretty dependent on the setup of your team and I find it super hard to get direct hits with her. I played a few rounds of Mystery Heroes and got Tracer who I went on a rampage with and that's that. She's gonna be my new main for a while I think. I used to think of her as a character you'd use to just get up in people's business, but after playing her and watching some guides she's way better at just pouncing out of position enemies. Or chasing down low health enemies and cleaning up. What have you guys been playing?
  14. Well I got about 400 pages into The Name of the Wind and yesterday I officially called it a day. It was a very strange experience reading this book as normally I'd give up on something which annoyed me as much as this book, but I felt compelled to read it for some reason. I liked the world building initially and the idea of the magic system, but my god does his perfection get boring as fuck super quickly. I literally rolled my eyes when I don't know why I came into bag on this book so hard. Maybe because I'm a grump bug from working so late recently, or maybe you guys are the only people I (don't really) know who are discussing the book.
