    What Games Are You Playing?

    Days Gone I'm only a couple of hours into this, but it's not a good sign that I quickly looked up how long it takes to complete and had a feeling of dread when I saw it's around the 40-hour mark. In almost every way this feels like a cheesy Roger Corman knock-off of The Last of Us, and not in a...

    Rate the Last Film You Watched

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of my favourite shows, so an Andy Samberg time-loop story is a definite watch for me. I see it's on Amazon Prime.

    Has collecting manga always been like this?

    In addition to the points you mentioned, as the range of titles being published has ballooned, perhaps print runs for individual titles have reduced in scale.

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    Yeah, almost every controller from the last few hardware generations has used analogue sticks from the same manufacturer, AFAIK, so they're all susceptible to drift. What I used to find helped on my drifty PS2 and Xbox 360 controllers was (while in-game) clicking and holding the L3/R3 button in...

    The General Conversation Area

    It's just text from the look of it. The interface is very basic; I think it's just something they cobbled together rather than a real CAPTCHA.

    Rate the last anime you watched out of 10

    Girlfriend, Girlfriend I probably would have given up on this show after a few episodes if it hadn't been from the same author as Aho Girl. I kept hoping that GG would live up to that level of insane comedy, and while the style of humour is similar, it runs out of steam early on and never...

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    Arrived almost two weeks earlier than the delivery estimate. I've tried out Astro's Playroom, and the new controller is amazing. Now I have many gigabytes to download to get the free upgrades for some of my PS4 games.

    Has anime become more mainstream?

    I guess he's too mainstream for otaku (I have no idea who he is either 😅 ).

    The General Conversation Area

    I find it weird that HiDive has started asking me to prove I'm human by answering basic maths questions. Apparently if there's one cast-iron way to prove you're not a computer, it's doing simple computation...

    [Overseas] Anime News & Announcements

    English subs make it tempting, but that's way too expensive to risk a blind buy. Hopefully it will get a western release now the legal issues have been resolved.

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Thanks for the confirmation. I had a feeling it tended to be in that range, but there are enough exceptions to make me twitch. I can't remember all the ones I noticed off the top of my head, but Ideon went out of print after a year or two, the same for Goshogun, One Week Friends was maybe 4...

    What did you BUY today?

    I think I just managed to order a PS5. :oops: Delivery won't be until the end of the month though, so I'm sure that will be a stress-free couple of weeks... It only took three months of checking Hotstock notifications and sitting in online store queues for an hour at a time, over and over. The...

    UK Anime Distributor MVM Entertainment Discussion Thread

    Thanks. I'll suppress my FOMO and wait a bit longer. Sentai releases seem to stay in print longer than Discotek, but it feels like any licence can expire at any time. I'm still kicking myself for waiting too long on Ghost Sweeper Mikami.
