Yes, I pretty much agree. But that's why I think they're putting so much investment into it, and why I think it will eventually take over - it's a walled garden, with all power in their control,…

Yeah, I tend to think that it could take a very long time before networks are fast and reliable enough for streamed gaming, across the market. There's a heck of a lot of infrastructure that needs to…

So, you lot reminded me to watch Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I have mixed feelings. Much of the direction and cinematography are first class, I like the central idea, and I've grown to like the…

That reminds me of the old joke about the Australian dad introducing his kids: "…and these are my sons, Spin Bowler and Opening Batsman."

I thought Death Proof was at least watchable. Planet Terror, on the other hand, I thought was pure crap. I enjoy a good B-movie, but this was like a lame caricature of a B-movie.

Ah, right. I must have got my wires crossed. I seem to remember discussing the quality of the DAC and headphone amp. I hope the new driver does the trick. That really aggravates me when good…

No, that was crpgnut. It's just that I remember that pibbur bought a Soundblaster card a couple of years ago, and I thought he was pleased with it. I wondered if he was joking or serious, given that…

I'm curious if a pibbur was dissatisfied with the Audigy card with a quality DAC, that he acquired a while back?

I'd say that the DAC and the amp are also an important part of the chain, especially if you want to get good definition and separation. Those 3020i speakers look interesting, bundling a respectable…

For most of my friends, we've moved pretty much all social media activity to Signal groups. It works great, and is really all you need, without the bullshit.

I tend to think of the Uncharted games as essentially Indiana Jones adventures. I'll be surprised if they do anything as good.

Been on Signal for years now. The main thing to bear in mind is that it takes security very seriously. If you want to transfer your messages to another phone, you have to create a backup with a…

I think with Bethesda, it's had more to do with shaking the games-as-a-service money tree. They probably didn't want to compete with themselves with TES online (and continuing Skyrim sales), the…

I've often thought that someone should do a "spiritual successor" to Dead Space. It may not have made quite enough megabucks for EA, but it was a very well-liked franchise, with sales that would be…

I'm a bit skeptical of the significance of Unreal 5. I suspect it will just a be larger than usual point update, appointed version 5 for "next gen" marketing purposes. The new tech is interesting,…

I think you can take the basis of the Arthuriad, and spin it into completely new stories. People have been doing that for centuries. Possibly they've made Mordred more sympathetic in this version.

Well, we're back in full lockdown, so I've been watching all sorts of things. One random thing I tried, after some recommendations, was Doom Patrol. I only watched the first two episodes, but I…

Has anyone seen The Good Lord Bird (https://www.rottentomatoes.com/tv/the_good_lord_bird/s01)? It turned up on a best of the year article, and I'd not heard of it. The reviews seem promising.

I could maybe imagine this one having an enough interest around it that a proper documentary is made, that perhaps digs a little deeper. Particularly if the legal dramas go anywhere.

This doesn't sound too promising:



Then several of the reviews note that it's still clearly an unfinished early access game, but that they're just putting a bow on it and releasing it as 1.0.

Yeah, I think a PG-13 tone is quite likely, same as the later movies. I was just a bit puzzled by the idea of hoping it doesn't get censored, as I wouldn't have thought there's much to censor, bar a…
