    Wonder Woman

    Saw Wonder Women on the weekend. Had a lot of fun with Gal. She's okay, she's no Meagan Gale, but she's okay. Really enjoyed the no-mans-land scene, glad I didn't watch any trailers to get that spoiled. Loved all the quick-time stuff... but oh boy the cgi fights are still horrendous!!! I just don't get it, DC, why is the CGI consistently so bad in your movies??? But to be fair, you could probably walk out of the cinema after no-mans-land and celebration... and not really miss that much more. 7/10

    Now Playing - Games

    I finished Titanfall2 this week, had an absolute blast in SP. Haven't tried MP, I would probably be extremely outclassed because I suck at parkour. Enjoying Slime Rancher on the xbox, and currently trying to get all the achievements... I'm at ~47 of 57 or something like that.
  5. I guess it's no coincidence that the people wanting reputation systems retired appeared to be the ones most affected by it... Anyway, I think there is merit in a discussion about showing the post counts, for the reason Jeff mentioned. What is the purpose of the site???
  6. Pile of shame has always meant unfinished games to me, usually meaning it got too hard and you gave up. I have a big pile of unfinished games from lack of time, but like Nmenth says that's often more about boredom. For instance I started the original Mass Effect, and I don't think I got past the first 10-15mins. It looks like a game I should like, but I didn't. Of course on PC, my badly specd machine doesn't affect interest. Currently playing through the SP campaign of TitanFall 2 on xbone... what great fun. I absolutely SUCK at parkour though. If there was a PC entry to be made here, it would have to be Elite. This is lack of time, but I also struggled with controls. Bought it on xbone and got MUCH further, until I actually bot bored.

    I don't normally post cos-play videos - but this aussie one is unique. 9/10 for idea 7/10 for execution, but still worth a look.

    Eastern Loong Released

    Who doesn't love a flying aircraft carrier, but because of the Star Blazers and Robotech, that will always be a Japanese unit to me.
  18. It's for work, for use with the adobe suite of software (Premiere Video Editing in particular). No monitors or peripherals needed. I don't want to spend any more, it's already over budget, but for an incremental cost that will last me longer I am open to suggestions. More importantly is there something I can do to shave cost but not performance???

    Thanks DD, but in the absence of other comments, I have gone ahead and placed the order as quoted. Now I am thinking a about keyboard/mouse combos. The computer will be stored at my feet, and for plugging in portable usb and phones to collect media, I was thinking about getting a wired keyboard with usb pass through ports. Does anyone have any experience with those? I've normally used wireless keyboard / mouse keyboards and they have been fine... Looking at options, but everything seems to be ultra-gaming-styled and I need plain business style...

  22. I always loved playing this mode, which had issues but had potential. I would have loved this to be further developed.
