    I cancelled my Netflix not long ago and am far away from my DVDs, so I'll probably have to pass. Would look forward to reading everyone's thoughts though, especially first time viewers (if there are any).

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    I don't believe I've ever heard breasts referred to as a "layout" before, but after checking the definition I absolutely approve. Technically, it handles the combination of shape, size and position and also accounts for both naturally occurring factors and clothing or surgical enhancements...

    The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

    I don’t really play multiplayer games much anyway, so that’s not really something I know a lot about (though personally, I blame the rise of all this “anti-cheat” software on competitive games being taken far too seriously, one of the main reasons I stay away from them) but from what I...

    The exclusivity thing I covered above. And in a world where I'm caught on about a dozen security cameras just walking to the shops for milk, number plate recognition cameras can place me anywhere at any time and GCHQ can access any of our communications and browsing history without even needing...

    The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

    Using Linux is a product choice you personally make though, just like someone choosing a Microsoft console over a Sony one (or vice versa) and having to accept they won't get the other console's exclusives. If you can manage to use a Linux PC for gaming kudos to you, but I would not have the...

    I don't know which spoilers to uncover beyond this one (I'll probably play it safe and say none) since I haven't read the manga and don't want to spoil it. Autocorrect wants to change "Reiner" to "Weiner", lol.

    UK Anime Distributor Anime Limited Discussion Thread

    I was biting my nails just waiting for this to be full of stuff I wanted, but I’m actually glad I didn’t go for it now. Half of them I already have and the other half don’t interest me. Nice for the folks who got stuff they wanted though!

    The Gaming News Thread (for news that doesn't need a thread)

    I get that exclusivity can be maddening, but this is really far less of an issue when it comes to PC gaming. If a game is hardware platform exclusive (which has been a thing for a while now) then in order to play it you need to buy a whole other console in order to play it, running the price...

    Is downloading the Epic launcher and creating an account really such a massive deal for people? Didn’t we go through all this years ago when Steam was the only way to get Half Life 2, and everybody lost their sh*t over that? The Epic launcher’s well worth having for the free games anyway, I’d...

    Does Manga “misplace” a lot of stock from warehouses or something? This isn’t the first time a load of copies of a new release have flooded CEX...

    E3 2019 News & Announcements / 6th to 11th June for Conferences / 11th to 13th for E3 Event

    I mean, in your corner of the country with your dial-up internet it might not be hugely attractive Cap :P but an initial outlay of £59 and £9 a month is probably a lot more attractive to casual gamers than blowing probably £400-£500 on a next gen console and then £60 per game. You can start...

    General Politics Thread

    I feel like recent events are a huge blow to Illuminati/NWO conspiracy theories, because had they been true I think the Brexit vote would have been conclusively rigged in favour of remain and Donald Trump would have long been six feet under. There's no master plan here unless it's a very long...

    Yeah, I mean for me personally there's a lot of nostalgic investment in that particular franchise. I remember picking up the original Baldur's Gate on a whim when it was on sale and unpacking the shoebox to find it was on no fewer than five CDs, wondering how on earth it was possible for a game...

    What Games Are You Playing?

    Wow that's... a long, long playlist @D1tchd1gger! Not really a big spectator of others playing games (unless it's watching someone I know in person) but I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is a jolly good game, however I don't have all the expansions as I'm unsure about whether the mechanics the last...

    So what happened to your avatar @NormanicGrav? There's some kind of irony in the thread starter having no avatar :P

    Stadia's not for me since I need to maintain a powerful up to date PC for my work anyway, but I did feel at the reveal that it looked very much like the future and had the potential to kill consoles stone dead. Perhaps it still could if the next generation of consoles continues trending in price...

    Baldur's Gate III So the sequel that seemed destined never to be, is. I have mixed feelings. The staff of BioWare who went to Black Isle were going to make it, then Black Isle ceased to exist. The staff of Black Isle who went on to form Obsidian were going to make it, then for whatever reason...
