Re: Secret santa 2018

I was disappointed with the lack of discussion after SS last year. Hardly anyone said what they received and it left me very unfulfilled :(

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I'm up to the last episode of Bodyguard a d really enjoyed it. Good quality British cop drama :)
Finally saw Leg which was decidedly awful, The Darkest Minds which was just pretty pointless and finally Venom which I expected to hate but is in my top 3 Marvel movies now!

Re: Mega SG

That is a thing of beauty! If $189 is to be believed it's pretty tempting :)

Re: RIP <Insert celebrity>

Vale Greg Stafford, Founder of Chaosium and the Call of Cthulhu role playing game died today aged 70 :(
This is the game that got me into running RPGs and allowed me to experience and create tales based on the works of my favourite author.

Re: Your Recent 'Other' Purchases

I recently picked up the board games Eldrich Horror & Mansions of Madness (se) for me and my wife & kitty.
As a big fan of Lovecraft's work and someone who's wanted to experience big-boy board games for a while these have both blown me away and we're all really enjoying them :)

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

GameCube! Give me Eternal Darkness, Lost Kingdoms 1/2, Baldur's Gate DA 1/2, Luigi's Mansion, Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime 1/2 and the awesome Star Wars shooters and I'll be happy ;) And why not include a few GBA games too? It would be an easy way to extend the catalogue on it without taking up mu...

Re: Which book(s) are you currently reading?

I'm going through a bit of a LitRPG mood at the moment and have recently finished the 7 books of The Land by Aleron Kong which were all really good but the last one was overinflated, jumping from a typical 700 pages to 2200. Nearly finished The Feedback Loop trilogy now which is a much more condense...

Re: Wreck-It Ralph 2

My 7yo is very excited for this but it looks more geared towards the kids of today this time round than the kids of yesteryear as the first was. Can't say I'm particularly excited tbh.

Re: Streets of Rage 4 officially announced!!!

Super excited. My then-girlfriend/now-wife and I spent many a night arguing over who ate the chicken in the original 3 games. Better be local 2 player though or it's a waste of a license.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

When I first saw the news I was giddy with excitement and that lasted until I read that it was 20 games. It's just not worth it when most people who loved psx have (or can obtain) most of the expected games via later consoles or have the original disk. If it was a platform that I could buy and downl...

Thanks for the PM, all clear now and it's the Royal Mail's fault for not leaving a card :)
