Re: Shmups

I take full responsibility (I don't). Congrats, hope it was fun and rewarding (that sounds sarky but isn't)!

Re: Comic Book Chatter

There's a Judge Dredd sale on at the moment on Comixology so I bought some stuff. There's also a free Judge Death comic on there at the moment, all very 80s British: :D

I enjoyed Hawkeye Vol 1 as mentioned above. Bro!

Re: Videogame News

I also started watching Prey (2017) recently, so if rancorous blame is gonna start flying in your direction any time soon, then I might as well go all in. :P If there is one piece of advice I'd give for Prey (as it's a little ornery at the start), it's not to sweat the small stuff. There are a bunc...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I haven't seen any baseball nerds around here but [deep breath] here goes: Finished my first season (as the Padres) in OOTP, with a 92-70 record, 7 games behind the Dodgers. Beat the Cubs in the Wild Card, and then got swept 3-0 by those same Dodgers. :( All this was having used the Padres' good far...

Re: Videogame News

I do wonder how likely it is for the game to go on sale in the future, considering how it doesn't appear to have ever been part of any sale in the 18 months it's been out, and with the studio now being out of the picture I don't know who would even arrange this sort of thing behind the scenes. Hmm,...

Re: Videogame News

Sorry, badly phrased on my end! I meant, the game remains for sale at the usual outlets, it hasn't disappeared or anything. And yes, I would advise waiting for a sale - it should be noted that the game is very stealth-focused indeed, and is not the action-packed proposition seen in the video, for th...

Re: Videogame News

Ultra Ultra, a studio which grew out of ex-Hitman devs, has folded. They released Echo, a stealth game which had some really clever ideas, and whose main hook was the AI 'learning' from your own actions. So for example using the gun was extremely dangerous, as the next time the simulation reset, all...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've got some time off work....and I can't settle on anything to play; very frustrating! I've been getting by with Out of the Park Baseball, as my stock game at this time of year. I've also tried applying MajorGamer's RNG method to my backlog, and it spat out..... Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion ....

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Lost very badly in my first campaign when the reclusive but tech superior lot we’d all been ignoring decided we all had to go. Won my second campaign with a federation victory just before something appeared from interstellar space and starting eating us all. Nice! My games played out very similarly...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

I've been going pretty hard at a few graphic novels: Fables 1 - great. Jinx - very interesting noir-ish story done in black and white and with very extravagant use of the page's real estate. Story about small-time grifters making a big score, with the usual influences. The interesting part was the f...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Flabyo, how did you get on with Stellaris in the end? My game on PC took a restart and a total of 100 hours to beat, so I'm guessing you ran out of steam on the console version eventually?

Matt Fraction's Hawkeye run
This Hawkeye stuff is currently 60-70% off on Comixology which seems good value.

Re: Comic Book Chatter

The bold words are probably just a printing thing from back when the issue was published, and not in any way meant to be emphasised when reading. DC and Marvel still used actual letterers back then rather than relying on computers, so that's why some text can standout more than others. Ok, I'll not...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

Thanks for the suggestions folks, much appreciated. I read a bit of Fables last night and it was great; really like it. The humour, the framing, the story: all excellent. It really brought home how great a job TellTale did on the Wolf Among Us, really cementing its place as the #1 Telltale game (for...

Hey folks, I haven't read any comics for a long time, are there any recommendations (for graphic novels really, complete story or story-arcs preferred) you can give for best-in-class?
