Re: DC drops first proper Suicide Squad trailer, I’m surprisingly impressed

"Let's do something fun"

Here's hoping the Director and Producers took this line to heart.

Re: Marvel’s Jessica Jones gets green-lit for second season

Didn't realise it hadn't been renewed, as everything I read seemed to infer a second season was guaranteed. Here's hoping they have another excellently written and acted villian. Killgrave/Tennant was a perfect fit.

Re: The 26 Game Challenge: play a game a fortnight - 2016

Finally got around to playing A Bird Story tonight. Given it's only an hour long it's an easy knock off the backlog. Sadly, it's nowhere near the excellence of To The Moon . The soundtrack is very good, but I didn't find myself connecting to the story - maybe as I never really cared for an injured a...

Sign me up. Given I've got Just Cause 3 and Fallout 4 on the go, a little encouragement to get through the main storyline rather than burn myself out with my usual wandering off to do side/fetch quests won't go astray.

Thanks PJ for playing Santa again.

Nothing like a massive multi-tab spreadsheet replete with nested formulas and lookups (even if it should be a boring database) to give one a warm feeling inside. :good:

Re: Fallout 4 - play discussion

That definitely sounds like a keeper, particularly if its got decent damage. Mine so far have been the likes of extra 50% damage to limbs, or bonus critical damage.

Re: The 26 Game Challenge: play a game a fortnight - 2015

Given I'm currently playing FO4 and constantly wandering off away from the main storyline, I think I better just wait for someone to appropriate the 2016 version before giving this a go. I need to try something to address my backlog.

I'm not too far into the game yet, about to go meet the BoS. But found things got a bit better once I started to actually spend some time dismantling the mods off the numerous weapons I'd picked up and stashed, so I could then more cheaply mod the weapons I was carrying around.
