  1. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    Thanks for the info. I'll probably pick up HR at some point and then the new game. Won't be for a while though because of my current living situation
  2. Vox article explains why cruising in the passing lane is dangerous

    In theory it should be absolutely fine to stay in the overtaking lane, as long as you're always doing the speed limit and nobody drives faster than that. Obviously it doesn't work like that in reality, so don't do it.
  3. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    Mankind Divided looks pretty appealing, but I've never played a Deus Ex game. Will I need to play Human Revolution or any of the previous games to understand what's going on? I might pick up HR anyway, but I've heard that the original game, while a classic, is rather dated.
  4. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    I still play Medieval II. Partly because my laptop can't run any of the new ones very well, but mostly because it's damn fun. I agree with this. There are no stakes in custom battles. Knowing the wider context of the battle really increases the immersion for me.
  5. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    Awww it looks so good. Please don't suck!
  6. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    Probably doesn't help that they're both English, but beyond that and the hair I don't really see the similarity either.
  7. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    It's funny how this comment is the polar opposite to what I've seen on youtube. Depressing to see people shrieking about feminazis because two films in a row have had a female lead.
  8. Kenny Baker Dies at 83

    This year sucks.
  9. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    That shot of the Death Star eclipse was fucking great. Ah why isn't it December yet?
  10. Scenes that make you cry

    I don't know what's wrong with me, but I just don't find this scene that sad. The idea is sad, but I've watched it several times and have never really been moved. I never really cry because of movies/TV/video games. That said, the last Hobbit movie was almost enough to make me cry, but for all the wrong reasons. Fuck that movie. The last scene of Blackadder Goes Forth is masterfully done. I'd never cried because of a video game until recently, when the scene in Life is Strange where absolutely destroyed me. The ending made me tear up as well.
  11. Suicide Squad: Real Life or Just a Fantasy?

    Mr Sunday Movies says it's pretty solid.
  12. Video Games: France not a WWI Nation

    Played the first episode of Life Is Strange because it was free and liked it enough to get the other episodes as they were 30% off or something. I liked the first 3 episodes well enough, despite my initial impression that the game was going to be a series of shallow attempts at appearing deep. Now I'm generally pretty tough when it comes to emotional moments in games (as well as books and movies), enjoying the effect but not getting scarred by the experience, but the first part of the 4th episode snapped me like a twig. Despite not really being that invested in mystery part of the story and some questionable voice acting, this game managed to turn me into an emotional wreck and I was a mess at the end. So IMO it's effective if you look past its flaws, but you may have a very different experience.
  13. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    Yeah I'm not terribly enthusiastic either, but it's being written by Lawrence Kasdan and being directed by the guys who did the Lego Movie, so it's in fairly safe hands. Just have to wait and see I guess.
  14. Pokemon Go

    Couldn't find a good name for myself that wasn't taken, so I mashed the keyboard in my frustration and ended up with gibberish. I also found out that it's ludicrously difficult to reset your account so I had to create a new google account. *sigh* Haven't caught anything other than my starter yet (Squirtle, of course), but I've got a free day tomorrow.
  15. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    I've heard (admittedly from youtube comments) that the trailer will be online in the next few hours.
