  1. I need to get back to it. Bought it as my first game on my new PC, but immediately got distracted by Forza Horizon 4. Looks lovely though.
  2. Done the first 25% in pretty much one sitting, in to the wood area. It's good, I've been playing it purely as picross, not really done anything with the other mechanics but I'll need to start to now I think. The design is lovely, I'm surprised Jupiter haven't done something similar themselves.

    Random News II

    It's called a gunblade.
  4. I may be wrong, but make sure the charger supports the dock and doesn't just charge. I seem to remember when I looked at a second charger for work that some didn't support the dock, although I'm not sure why that would be the case.
  5. Has gtav ever dipped out of the top 10 or 20?
  6. @DANGERMAN rechargeable screen? Googled it. Yep literally a tiny hd screen.
  7. It seems ok now. It might have been re-caching perhaps?
  8. I've now got my last two pieces. Ended up getting a Radeon RX580 8GB gpu and a 24.5" 1080p freesync monitor. I went with the 580 instead for the 1660ti for a few reasons. 1, it was nearly half the price (because it's nearly 3 years old and the 1660ti is pretty new) and 2, it support freesync which my monitor also has. It seems to handle new triple A's at 1080p 60fps which suits me and the monitor limits me to these settings anyway. So far I've played Slay The Spire, which didn't give it any issues, Forza Horizon 4 which defaulted to ultra settings and was super smooth and Shadow of the Tomb Raider which defaulted to High, but I ran a benchmark on Highest and it seemed fine, but had a few dips below 60fps, so I'll probably leave it on high. The monitor is lovely and seemed like a bargain at £120. Built in speakers are ok not great, the image quality it really good though and it has plenty of inputs. I've really enjoyed putting my own pc together. I imagine I'll still be adding and tinkering with bits, I need to sort out the cables at the back as they are jammed into the bottom housing. It runs so fast, it's cool being able to play games but also has made working at home a lot less painful as well. Total cost with monitor was just over £800 which I don't think is too bad.

    @smallofbooty it's the actors name. For what it's worth, I thought Tulip was the best character in S1 and S2 and the dynamic between her and Jesse worked well. I might try and watch S3, especially if they are getting a 4th season (I sort of assumed they wouldn't as no one seems to watch it).

    TV Shows

    It's fine, but no where near the comics. The first series (which was decent) covers the first 4 pages of the comic. The second series was good, never got around to the third.
  11. Ooff that was painful. I think Smith and Mews look so different to their characters in the early 2000 that I can't get on board with this. Mews especially with his new teeth (heroin, hell of a drug). Also the jokes and writing are painful. This does remind me though, I've been meaning to catch up with the last few Smith films, although they are meant to be hit and miss.

    TV Shows

    Just finished the first episode of Mayans MC, mainly because they keep trailing it on 6 music and it sounded cool. I never bothered with Sons of Anarchy but I'm thinking I probably should have as this is pretty good and isn't meant to be as good as Sons.
  13. Is it not PS4 exclusive? Also, @OCH I don't know the spec of your pc, but I'm guessing if you don't then it most certainly will not run it.
  14. Ordered a £30 GPU so I can set up my computer once my processor arrives. I've got to hang fire on my 1660ti until the end of August so this crappy gtx710 will have to sustain me. It's a pain that not all CPUs come with some kind of on board graphics.
  15. Vote to reinstate down voting for use of both Holibobs and Famalam?
  16. Progress continues ln the motherboard I've fitted the bracket for the cooler and just ordered a ryzen 2700 as it was reduced to £166 which was too good to miss. Also added the ram although may need to pop them back out when I seat the cooler. Incidentally, I can already tell the cooler is going to be painful to fit. In the case I've added two extra 120mm fans as an intake but seated them the wrong way around so had to do them again. Also had to buy some SATA power extensions for the two SATA drives as the power cables with the PSU had L shaped cables which prevented the SSD sitting flush in the mount. Coming together nicely. Just GPU and monitor to sort now *cough* @RoboticMonk3y *cough*
  17. Stock is meant to be fine, but I'm getting a bit carried away and I fancy having a play around with some over clocking. Just ordered two more case fans for my intake and a second smaller capacity SSD that'll be my work os to keep everything separate.
  18. This bad boy arrived today, my mother board is arriving tomorrow as well. Last parts now are the CPU and GPU.
  19. Case arrived with my PSU and SSD, couldn't resist opening them and taking a look. Ended up mounting the SSD and partially wiring in the PSU which is probably a terrible idea as I'll most likely need to take them out again..
  20. Nice! I think I'm going to go for the 2700 as the prices have dropped off quite a bit now the 3 series processors are out. I've been selling some old stuff on eBay and using the money to buy parts, mainly the stuff I'm not on the fence about, or if a good flash deal has been available. So far I've got (or getting today) -G.Skill - Trident Z 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory -NZXT - H500 ATX Mid Tower Case -Corsair - TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply -Kingston - A400 480 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Now just the processor, mobo and GPU to go, I'm still on the fence about the gpu and processor though.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    This is a bit off topic, but I remember reading something about a year ago to do with The Matrix and transgender and sexuality. Basically, the matrix is an analogy for gender identification and sexual identification and breaking out of the prescribed norm. Something that had never occurred to me the numerous times I've seen that film, but echoed with a lot of people watching the film who are non-cis or where still not "out" regarding their sexuality.
  22. Yeah I've got two running a 3b and a 3b+. One is my Plex media server and the other a retropie emulation box housed in a mini SNES case.
  23. Ironically, @Sly Reflex is the op of the FFVII games thread.
