  1. My mate just got me on to this show and, well, fuck, what an amazing piece of television this is. I've burned through seven seasons in the last week (only six episodes a season) but this is truly a majestic piece of perfection. I can't believe there isn't a fifty page thread on it on the forum.
  2. My games room is coming along nicely
  3. Yup it is already out. Give it a go. @Mr Do 71 add me if you want I'm Phelan74 on Xbox
  4. Yup you can play the whole game without Co-Op. It's great. Immersive is perfect. Enemies don't have a level. It's you v them. "Once the update lands, Breakpoint players will have three options to choose from; there's the Regular Experience, enabling those that actually like the game's original flavour to play on, while the radical stuff can be found in the Immersive Experience. This, says Ubisoft, "removes gear level and tiered loot entirely, and offers a bunch of new tactical options." It also features partial health regeneration, limited resources, a minimal interface, and normal difficulty. Just doing a spot of the old "realistic looting". There's also a third, highly configurable Custom Experience, enabling players to choose their favourite elements of both modes and adjust various community-requested settings. They can, for instance, select to disable weapon quality tiers and item levels, choose whether to carry one or two primary weapons, enable realistic looting and ammo loss on reload, adjust stamina levels and bandage quantity, set frequency of injury status, tweak health regeneration, and more. There are also new HUD settings, and a new Private Mode limited to story characters and co-op teammates." Bolded the good stuff. You can basically play it anyway you want now!
  5. Single player on Xbox. Don't know anybody who has it.
  6. I picked this up for cheap and I'm really enjoying it. Put it on immersive mode. So no levelling or anything. No HUD. Just the game and me. Lots of diving into the ground. Sniping my way around using thermal imaging etc. The game is awesome!

    That's still marketing I'm afraid to say. I get there are people massively invested but the smart play would be to create condensed versions of the videos with key info because most people don't have 2 hours to watch something like that.

    Who the fuck does marketing for these guys?? Who in the right mind thinks it would be a good idea to so a movie's worth of content of a bunch of guys sitting around a fucking table!?!?!?
  9. 240!?!?!?! I'm at 51 and I thought I was doing well. Holy fuck!! I was speaking to a guy in my clan who had baked 1,200 cookies and I was like 'dude, go outside'.
  10. I got Wendigo two days ago. Just let it slowly build anytime I took a grenade launcher into a strike. Didn't care when I got it.
  11. Fuck the Dawning. 16 or 17 Essence per strike. You need over 3,500 to finish the whole thing. That's over 200 strikes or 50 per week. I mean c'mon guys. Less of the grind. Oh and what do you get? The Dawning bike. At least make it a pinnacle weapon!!
  12. Got contacted by one of the local papers and asked to do a review. It contains no spoilers. I love Star Wars. My dad took me to see the first Star Wars film, A New Hope, in 1978. It was my first cinematic experience and with that movie came a love for a franchise that burns as bright today as it did the moment the Corellian Corvette engines appeared on-screen being chased by a Star Destroyer. I've attended the midnight screening for the last six movies, I've built a 5,000 piece LEGO Millenium Falcon and my most prized possession is a Princess Leia figure signed by Carrie Fisher. I've seen some reviewers who reckon the movie is a big pile of bantha fodder, but here's my take. Star Wars has always been about hope. Hope that good will triumph. Hope that evil will fall. The fans have always had hope that the next Star Wars movie (whatever it may be) won't be terrible. We have had a chequered past; we lost the battle when it came to The Phantom Menace, and many say we nearly lost the war with The Last Jedi. But for me, The Rise of Skywalker has brought something magical to the screen for everyone to enjoy. It's a rip-roaring, action-packed romp reminiscent of the original trilogy and is a beautiful end to the Skywalker saga. It's not easy to finish an ennealogy. How do you take eight movies loved by so many and craft an ending in a story that will satisfy most people while delivering a box-office smash? Thankfully JJ Abrams (The Force Awakens) showcases once more his ability as a director to give us a Star Wars film packed with jaw-dropping set-pieces, lightsaber fights that hum while also driving a story that will have you on the edge of your seat. It's the end of the saga that has wowed the world for 42 years, so we knew that there were a lot of strands that needed to be tied together and Abrams manages to fulfil nearly all of them in this films 144 minutes. The story of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) was well-handled, the growth of Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) as a soldier and a leader was fitting, Finn (John Boyega) finds his place in the universe but the loss of Carrie Fisher was always going to hit the fans the hardest. We knew this would be the last time we would see her reprise her role as Princess Leia. She was a stateswoman, a mother and a Jedi. Carrie Fisher was loved by so many of the fans, and Abrams handled her passing well. The film is not without its flaws. You may find yourself eye-rolling at a weird space horse battle. But the cameos will keep every true fan happy (one in particular had me leaping out of my seat and punching the sky with joy - a character from all three originals). Listen to the Sith-like reviewers at your peril. Choose the light side and lose yourself in an entertaining, epic film that left me grinning as I walked away from the cinema. And have hope. I'm looking forward to seeing it again this weekend.
