Re: The Expanse

The expanse moves about as fast as game of thrones honestly. Season 1 of game of thrones was about the same pace as season 1 of the expanse. It gets really good though, picks up a lot more by end of season 1 and no dead episodes in season 2 so far. As for the OA. It was really good, but the first ep...

Re: Planet Trump

Interesting (and long) article by a writer who has studied 4chan for a long time, and how it relates to the rise of the alt-right and Trump https://medium.com/@DaleBeran/4chan-the-skeleton-key-to-the-rise-of-trump-624e7cb798cb#.72pwesom7 Good read, makes a lot of sense.

Re: Is being a “Gamer” a thing of the past?

Kind of in the past. There's still problems that can crop up with gaming that all that stuff we learnt to do helps with, but it's definitely nice to be able to click a button on steam and have a game just work, we get to spend more time actually playing games and less time tinkering, even if the tin...

Re: Assassin's Creed - Trailer

I saw it. I'd give it a miss, wait until it's on netflix or something. It had some good looking action scenes in the past that were a bit ruined by too much shaky cam, overuse of cgi dust effects and overall a lack of tension. The present day stuff was messy and didn't make a lot of sense and there ...

Re: The Walking Dead’s ratings are dropping considerably

I think the issue with the walking dead is they've always had it as semi third person narrative. So we've always been following Rick's group, but it shifted to a style where instead of jumping around between people within the group, it just follows one or two at a time. So this is done to emphasise ...

Stranger Things (netflix) - Season 1

So if you've just recently binged through this, let's discuss it here. I really enjoyed it, the kids start off playing D&D and the whole season reminds me of a D&D one off campaign. The kids basically go on an adventure to rescue their friend, get help from a wizard (science teacher). Even at the en...

Re: Windows 10 for gaming...

It's been fine for me.

The only issue I've had is at some point the store got corrupted and I couldn't fix it, so I had to reinstall completely from scratch, none of the recovery things worked. Otherwise it's been perfect.

It definitely has fixed time loop quality to it. Varys I still think is a merfolk. Tyrion threatens to have Varys thrown off a ship. Varys responds that he isn't worried about this at all, and that if Tyrion means to kill him by drowning him in the sea, then he's likey to be disappointed. Varys isn'...

Yes, this frustrates me to no end. For the most part I've selected pretty good friends so I don't worry about seeing them on facebook too much. The issue I have is with media news sites wanting to talk about the shows and episodes just after they air. They include a screencap from the episode and a ...

Re: GoT Season 6 Discussion (SPOILERS)

Melisandre is definitely losing faith in the lord of light. Stannis was defeated when she saw him winning, now she sees Jon Snow dead who was her other hope and she's just giving up. She doesn't want the Red God's magic anymore.

Re: Is SLI worth it?

SLi makes your computer/room really hot. You're putting out a lot more heat. You get pretty good performance, but it's only worth it if you're getting multiple of the very best cards available at the time. If you're getting two slower/cheaper cards, you might get the performance of one of the top en...

Re: XCOM 2

The game runs like crap on pretty much all hardware. It doesn't support SLI properly, so that doesn't help. 4770k at 4.2GHz and 980 Ti and if I have shadows, ambient occlusion and some other stuff maxed out the framerates drop pretty severely at some transitions. When I've turned off a lot of the gr...

Hey. So I'm wondering if anyone uses any kind of monitor arms/mounts to allow screen position adjustment/rotation and if you do, what is your set up and experience like?

You'd probably go 3 Psi Ops, 3 specialists kitted out into combat and hacking. Though I guess things like Chrysallids don't care about psi ops.
