  1. Sonic All Star Racing Transformed

    Those rumours also say it's coming in four weeks time max, which uh, isn't really how games work unless you expect this to be for Android or something.
  2. Black Panther - Chadwick Boseman - Feb 2018

    You're not even engaging with my arguments at this point, because I've pointed out that it doesn't change my argument at all. Instead it actually makes it sound like you're agreeing with Kerraig here, despite disagreeing with him throughout the thread. You seem muddled and should probably step away for a minute because you're getting worked up here. That's in reference to Kerraig saying he thought it was weird and condescending, seeing it from his perspective and then immediately providing a counterpoint (which, of course, you removed to make it seem like I'm saying something I'm not).

    That it was made by two Jewish guys doesn't change my point at all - BP was created to appeal to African Americans, to reflect African American culture, not to introduce Marvel to a sub-saharan African audience. I mean T'Challa is literally a made up African sounding name, I don't even think the ' is a glottal stop as in languages where it's used. His Superhero Alter Ego is literally named after a North American political movement! This shouldn't be a controversial point! No, this is you reading stuff out of nowhere. I'm not getting offended at all, my post was literally offering an anti-colonialist reading of it in defense.
  4. Disable 'Featured Content' on your PS4!

    It is bizarre how Sony continue to get such an easy ride for all their anti-consumer stuff, in the sales thread someone posted how much they make from their digital services before PS4 and after in a "wow they did really well" way and not "hey that's what happens when you promise PS4 multiplayer will be free and then backtrack". Even this is being treated across here and ResetERA as if it's a curiosity, something that's somehow been implemented entirely separately from the company.

    Hey man, you're the one who brought it up, don't piss and moan because you made a wrong post.

    Yeah Nazi death squads aren't a sore point in Eastern Europe at all, Poland didn't pass a law about making it illegal to say they'd participated in the Holocaust literally in the last week.

    I don't get this harsh response, you seem to be reacting as if my post was an attack? Like this: It wasn't. I was explaining to kerraig that it doesn't matter that the director is from California because BP has always been about the African American experience more than an African one. Marvel comics have always been aimed entirely at a US audience, basically up to the Internet becoming a thing (and still pretty heavily now).
  8. Star Trek Discovery - new TV show materialising 24 Sep 2017

    The daftest bit is they had a comically evil person in charge, journeyed to the enemies homeworld in the middle of a war and are sneaking about to plant some device in a volcano and then everyone else on the crew is shocked that it's not some altruistic action. Fuck me, Starfleet needs some minimum IQ tests. I say stealthing about, but really they're immediately making a big scene getting in fights in the middle of a highly visible area, and conducting illegal weapons deals in the open, while throwing in the most unconvincing "haha how badass we are" lines all the time. This is Mass Effect Andromeda the TV series.
  9. Black Panther - Chadwick Boseman - Feb 2018

    I mean it it's not actually about Africa, it's about African-Americans synthetic African-themed culture. Like how there's a trend to give kids "African sounding" names from people in Baltimore who only speak English, so they end up with names like RoShawnda or whatever that don't actually exist in African countries, or how there's a fake African-themed African-American version of Christmas. From the outside this stuff seems strange and even a bit offensive - imagine if there was a film set in a fictional Asian country that was a bunch of Chinese, Korean and Japanese cultural aspects mashed together as if they were the same, where the characters had names created by mashing a bunch of chings and chong sounds together, rather than actually using a real-world language? Would get a very different reception. But then you've got to realise the context - the slave trade scattered people around, destroyed every cultural touchstone they had - so they're having to create this sort of pan-African cultural milieu because people don't even know what specific modern day country or culture their family is originally from.
  10. Destiny 2

    Worth it for this, which points to D2 not being some outlier but instead a continuation of a trend.
  11. Spyro remake PS4?

    Oh god more nostalgia pandering.
  12. Forza Horizon 3

    I'm the opposite, I think the real world tracks are boring (most being in flat locations meaning no scenery). I much prefer having these open areas that are set up as playgrounds, with routes through and over and under the obstacles. But then, that's why they're different series.
  13. Food Prepping

    I'm starting a job soon with longer hours and a greater commute, so I decided to give this a test run to see if it's something I can do in future to keep my evenings clear. Did the recipe in the OP, first two portions came out very nice, have to see what the frozen ones are like. I think I need a bigger oven pot though, the ingredients barely fit in this one.
