Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I'm pretty happy with my Pixel after I replaced the App Launcher.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

The super cards are a slight improvement over their predecessors at the same price point. Still a lot cheaper than the Ti cards. Probably going to get a 3700x (cheaper than the 9700kf I was eyeing off) and a 2080 super. Not in a huge rush but would like it soonish. Have to look at reviews of the new...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Was ready to drop money on a new PC at the start of last month but then AMD announces the new Ryzen stuff. Now nVidia has announced a video card refresh. I got used to the something new is just around the corner but normally it was 6 months off. So now I'm waiting for 2080 supers to be released here...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

It's a lot better in big cities. I have the option of spending around $7 a day on busses or $30 on parking plus whatever on petrol. Due to the OBahn the bus is probably faster than a car during peak hour too.

Re: Borderlands 2 resources

Not that I know of. The only real way to get around it is to plug in a controller and switch to that when in a vehicle. That's actually a popular controller set up. Might give that a shot if it supports Dualshock 4 via Steam. I think the most annoying thing about it is that it switches the W and S ...

Re: Borderlands 2 resources

Started playing this recently but the mouse look steering is driving me insane. Is there any way to completely disable mouse look steering - the vehicle steering options only seem to enable and disable keyboard driving.

Going to resist pre-ordering because I don't like what it encourages in publishers, even if CD Projekt is a pretty good publisher.

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

Personally I think truth in election advertising really needs to be looked at. There were a bunch of ads around that were 100% bullshit but they were legal because somebody authorised them.
Given the current 2 parties it's not likely to happen but it would be nice.

Re: Game of Thrones (Season 8) - SPOILERS

It was OK at best. I think people are disappointed mostly because the other seasons were great, so the let down from falling from that lofty perch has people angry. Other seasons were getting rated at around 9 or higher. This season started at 8 and just kept dropping, especially after Winterfell. L...

Re: Game of Thrones (Season 8) - SPOILERS

I agree that the general cinematography and directing is top notch (barring some of the Battle of Winterfell), but the writing, pacing and order of events is a bit ehhhhhh.

Re: Federal Election May 18, 2019!

I'm OK with the bar being pretty low. Upholds more of the democratic principles while also acting as a handy survey of the variety of motivated nutters out in the community. I wouldn't take that cheat sheet as anything close to gospel. The headline often doesn't have much to do with what the party i...

You could always direct them to the YouTube clip of the various actors giving their brief reviews of the final season. It will probably put them off though.

Re: Game of Thrones (Season 8) - SPOILERS

She's also shown those tendencies in earlier seasons with burning of people who displease her, particularly in Westeros.
Seems a little pointless that she sent in the army when she was going to nuke the whole city anyway.

Certainly not after he spammed so many people with SMSes. It's pretty obvious he's just there for Clive, whatever policies he puts forward are just to get himself elected.

I really should stop paying too much attention to the siege weapons they use. Now we have magic ballistae. The show does have a lot of fantasy and magic elements but with a distinct grounding in reality, this last season seems to have just gone "fuck it". FWIW there is no way a ballista that size sh...
