  1. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    It's often very amusing to see a mammoth take flight for no reason at all, but it does break immersion and when there are so many glitches it makes Bethesda just look shit at quality control, which is a pisstake when you pay £50 for a new game these days.
  2. Grammar and Terminology Question

    I think it should be "female" if you phrase it like that. Are you not using it as an adjective to describe "equity partner"? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think "woman" is ever used as an adjective. If you have such an aversion to "female", I would just phrase it differently.
  3. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    Bethesda, for using the same engine for the past 10 years? Maybe I'm missing something, but I wouldn't pick any of those three if I had to choose the laziest game developer.
  4. Daily Annoyance, The Eternal

    So my laptop bit the dust a couple of weeks ago, but my brother let me use his old one since he has a desktop now. Trouble is this laptop is constantly trying to install windows updates, fails to do so and sits there looking sad and doing absolutely nothing for an hour. Dear laptop, I don't need a fucking update. You were working fine before. Please stop trying.
  5. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    It's mostly because most of features people were expecting, i.e. Galactic Conquest, single player campaign, local offline multiplayer (though this may have been patched in IDK), space battles etc were all stripped out and replaced with... absolutely nothing. I played the beta and didn't find it that fun, so I didn't bother with the full game. I enjoy Battlefield and I buy it in spite of it being published by EA and its lack of offline gameplay because it's competitive and very immersive (for me at least), but I didn't get that feeling at all from Battlefront.
  6. Black Mirror - Spoilers after the first post

    My housemate showed me a couple of these a few months back (the one with the pig and the one with the eye recordings). Really enjoyed both of them, so I'll have to look into seeing the rest. Disturbing stuff.
  7. Trailer Thread III

    Meh it rubbed me the wrong way. Like Veltigar said, they have no chemistry and to me the whole trailer felt weirdly disjointed and showed way too much.
  8. Trailer Thread III

    That was painfully bad IMO. Hopefully it's misrepresenting the actual movie.
  9. Dog or Marriage?

    Yeah sorry I like dogs, but by insisting that the dog shares the bed she seems completely bananas.
  10. Daily Annoyance, The Eternal

    Was meant to have a telephone interview for an internship in France today. 20 minutes before it was meant to start I found that I'd received an email saying it would have to be delayed (fortunate because my bus was running late). I emailed back saying that's fine, but I'm now not sure if it will be later today or next week. So now I'm sitting nervously in a chair, waiting for a phone call that probably won't come, but obviously not wanting to go out food shopping until I know it definitely won't be today. It's been an hour and I'm getting hungry. I bloody hate telephone interviews.
  11. Wearing a suit to a black tie wedding?

    A suit will be fine, provided we're talking about your birthday suit of course.
  12. Mad Max Fury Road in Black and White

    That was fantastic.
  13. Daily Annoyance, The Eternal

    Definitely tried switching it off and on, and I think the good whack is what killed it in the first place. I've worked out that the hard drive is damaged.
  14. Daily Annoyance, The Eternal

    My laptop has decided to die in the most infuriating way possible. Nothing works, and then from time to time it'll work fine for ten seconds before freezing again. If it just conked out I could deal with it, but this teasing is just plain rude. Doesn't help that I need to be applying for jobs right now. No matter how much I swear at it, its condition doesn't improve, so I guess the microphone is also broken.
  15. Video Games: No Man's Pie

    Glad I'm not the only one. I liked a lot of the gameplay, but never got invested in the story.
