Re: What Film have you just watched?

Terminator Genisys. I agree with Matt - Linda Hamilton was a lot more convincing warrior. Which is interesting, given the recent comments about the recent Mad Max film being "feminist" since it has an strong female lead. Looks like Terminator 1 managed that 30 years ago... Anyway, back to ...

Re: What you playing at the minute?

STALKER: Clear Sky. I have mixed feelings regarding it. The human NPCs can see in the dark (without night vision), can see through bushes and can throw grenades a very long way. This makes it all rather one sided. I spent some time today finding a mod to limit their superhuman abilities. It works OK...

Re: What you playing at the minute?

Wasteland 2. Bought it on GoG during their sale and I'm really enjoying it. I have never played the first one but have played fallout 1 and 2 which were apparently inspired by it. It was difficult at first but got more manageable later.

Re: What you playing at the minute?

I've probably doubled my playing hours since last time. It has got easier now I've worked out the autothrottles to minimise the number of times I overshoot a destination and changed ship. The docking computer has improved things but I find myself getting bored travelling from A to B, particularly in...

Re: What you playing at the minute?

I bought elite dangerous at the weekend. I had hoped for Freelancer on steroids with a science implant, my fault. I can't really get in to it. I can't deal with the tedium of exiting supercruise at the right point to get to a destination then dock at the star port, it removes the element of fun for ...

Re: What you playing at the minute?

The original Left 4 Dead. Haven't played anything multiplayer for what seems like a very long time. Bought the second one in the steam sale, will give it a go sometime.

Re: Top Gear is back Sunday :D

I found the last 15 minutes or so fairly alarming. Top Gear are not the most respectful of other people's customs/cultures and the program is widely exported so I can imagine it would be fairly straightforward to embroider the truth about some event that occurred on route. Unfortunately, I though th...

Re: What have you bought today - VOL 3

New graphics card. My XFX Radeon 4890 has lasted really well for 5 years (!) with only a change in heat sink/fan required early on but it is now too old to play most games released last year. I ordered an Asus Radeon R9 280X to replace it.

Re: What Film have you just watched?

I saw Hobbit 3 (Total War Edition) yesterday. Some of the fight scenes are over in seconds while others appear to take very much longer. Bits of it drag but overall I enjoyed it. I think they've connected it well to the first lord of the rings film. Watched Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow as w...

Re: What Film have you just watched?

I watched RIPD yesterday. Don't remember hearing about it when it was released (2012,I think) but very enjoyable. It's a bit like Men in Black crossed with the Matrix.

Re: What Film have you just watched?

I'm one of the rare people that actually enjoyed Pacific Rim. I had absolutely zero preconceptions about it before I saw it at the cinema. Having said that, I haven't seen it since and probably won't. It falls in to the category of many films that I only want to see it once.

Re: Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog,

After a great time at le mans this year I think it's time to try something else. Does anyone have experience with the Isle of Man TT?

Re: Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog, Apparently since I'm unmarried and single I can consider such important life decisions as... Which graphics card am I going to buy next? Currently I'm swaying towards the Radeon 280X because it appears to beat the Nvidia competition (GTX 760, the GTX770 is a bit too much) in terms of fram...

Re: What you playing at the minute?

Currently playing, or trying to play, The Witcher 2. Sometime around chapter 1 it stopped working on my PC because I would have a BSOD after only a few minutes. Since reinstallating Windows I am playing again with the same save although I find it rather frustrating as some of the combat is exception...
