    Disenchantment - Matt Groening on Netflix

    This is obviously nowhere near Futurama or Simpsons at their heights, but I quite like it. The first episode was complete deck but after that it's quickly improved, I'm up to episode eight and it's zoomed by. Mind you I have watched the entire thing stoned off my tits so it might not be a fair test.

    There was some chatter a while back that they were implementing all-night raiding for "adult" accounts which would be dead handy, maybe this is part of it.

    Didn't you say you'd hit 500 stops over a few days? How did you manage that without walking? That's a very odd complaint for a game that's basically a walk-em-up.

    That's rng for you. I found one about three stops away from me the first night it was out but have only caught one wild shiny, my friend picked it up yesterday and already has a wild shiny. It's why the first two hours of most community days for me are so stressful.

    The same thing happened to me today. I'm fairly sure it's just Niantic having piss poor implementation again.

    Nah turns out it's rubbish on pretty much everything (attack wise at least) so you're better off with whatever STAB moves you can get. Had a very weird day, had two shinies in the first two and a half hours and not a single iv over 76, then caught a 98% normal eevee and seven shinies (all shit unfortunately but hey oh). Also got lucky in my evolves, I've done six and got vape-jolt-flare twice in a row.

    You do but Last Resort is set to significantly boost neutral dps to the point that an Espeon (high neutral damage potential) will become the second highest neutral dps attacker in the game (behind shadow ball Mewtwo) and will get Umbreon damn close to the top of the defenders list. My main Espeon will still be psychic/psychic but it'd be great to have a high damage jack of all trades.

    Community Day is gonna be interesting then - a minimum of six shinies needed to complete the set and that's only if you get phenomenally lucky. Umbreon and Espeon can still be obtained by the walking trick but if you want the new move on them then it's going to mean a total of 20km walking between when you get them and Monday evening - bearing in mind you're probably going to want a decent one of each so you can't necessarily just buddy the first shiny you get. Dat triple stardust though!

    No Man's Sky

    Okay, annoyingly I have somewhat got into this. But I could use a few tips: I've just got a freighter and a frigate. First mission was fine but every subsequent one has ended with it getting heavily damaged within a few minutes even though I'm sending it on the lowest ranked missions I can get. And as I've just started I've no idea how to get the cash for more. I've set up a base and a few plants - how does the farming work? Also, my ship is utter dogger and gets torn to pieces whenever I get jumped. How do I get the plans for better weapons? I vaguely remember the mining laser being an utter beast when I first played but I have no idea where to get one. Lastly, is there any way to remove way points? I got pointed to an abandoned settlement which I had to flee because whenever I touched anything I got mullered by these ugly alien dog dealies, and now whenever I scan to find somewhere new it either mostly points me at the same abandoned settlement (even though I grabbed the computer data from it). Or at least is there any way to clear the way point? I'd like to consolidate in this system for a bit but my map is getting very cluttered.

    Nope! The research quests are fairly rare apparently though.

    But I'm crap at dark souls too. Also I've just built my first base and I'm worried I'm going to have to immediately reverse my opinion.

    Do I really need to add the rider "...with a modicum of challenge"? I thought that was pretty self evident. Stop being facetious.

    No Man's Sky

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this was marketed as "go and freely explore the galaxy, with a series of endless worlds and possibilities". You know, the shit that everyone wants as a gamer. But my options are either a) Minecraft with safety wheels or b) endlessly having to farm things to create things to pair with other things I've just farmed to make something that I'll need to pick up and put down and put fuel in then collect things from then pick up then put down again and then repeat? That doesn't make good game design. Making something endlessly fiddly does not equal difficulty. If I wanted something tough but fair, I'd play Bloodborne. If I wanted to endlessly manage inventory whilst exploring a huge pretty open world, I'd play Skyrim. If I wanted to be told That Item Can't Be Placed There whilst shooting trees for half an hour, I'd play No Man's Sky. But I don't because it's a pointless chore, so I won't.

    So I re-do loaded this for the second time this afternoon. I was one of those people that bought on release after the ridiculous hype train and was obviously sorely disappointed, and then got stung again a few months later when I heard the kinks have been ironed out. Well, colour me surprised this time. They've managed to make it even worse. I'm sure once you get into the groove it's very fulfilling (or not, I'm beyond caring). But it seems like the devs have sat down and had a meeting whereupon they've decided that all the crappy aspects I hated the first two times round - endless farming from the get go, wrestling with inventory space every five minutes, complete lack of direction - were the parts that really needed focusing in on. Honest to God I want to love this game, I really do. It looks fantastic. The concept is phenomenal. But somehow they've managed to make that so user-unfriendly that the end result is like listening to someone else ramble on about the dream they had last night; simultaneously supremely confusing and utterly, utterly dull. It's like trying to organise a massive spreadsheet whilst drunk and has slipped from "Huge disappointment" to "genuinely hated" on my list after an utterly horrid three or so hours. There goes my relaxing Sunday, I'm off to play Doom. Never again.
