Star Trek: Picard trailer debuts at SDCC

in Movies Discussion 1 day ago

The good:7of9 and Data/B4 are two of my favourite Trek characters, so I'm really glad to see they'll be in it. Also excited to see the Borg return. It also looks OK visually.The bad:Unpopular opinion but Stewart is too old now, him being the main star just doesn't work for me; it reminds me of the final TOS and TNG Trek movies where the cast were too old to be believable in their roles.The plot,...

Favourite Mainline Total War Series?

in General Discussion 2 days ago

Strategy series Total War is now almost 20 years old, and back in May the latest entry - Three Kingdoms - was released. That should be enough time for most fans to know how they feel about it. So for this week's poll of the week I thought I'd find out which Total War series is VGC's overall favourite....

Worst director of all time?

in Movies Discussion 5 days ago

I wouldn't know because I almost certainly haven't seen any of the worst one's films. However, just going from the poll options and the films of theirs I've seen: Uwe Boll - Haven't seen any of his films.Aaron Seltzer/Jason Friedberg - Haven't seen any of their films.Michael Bay - Has made a couple of decent films. Armageddon was alright back in the day and The Island had its moments too. The...

Second place at a Dreamhack Dota tournament back in 2004-2006 means you must've met, play against, and beaten what became some of the most successful esports pros in the world.

What Game Are You Best At?

in Gaming Discussion on 15 July 2019

When I played rank I managed to get in the top 3-4% for Dota 2, but I never considered myself good; lane against someone a few hundred MMR higher and you're soon made aware of how shit you actually are. The rarest achievement I've unlocked is completing CoD 3 on veteran, but that's more about patience and perserverance in the face of thousands of deaths than about being good. ...

NSLite: Possible unmentioned improvements that WOULD make you consider one?

in Nintendo Discussion on 11 July 2019

It has me tempted already. What would make me even more interested? Hmm. - Reassurance regarding graphical quality of that smaller screen. That's probably my main concern atm. - It looks from the images like there's plenty of room for the screen to be larger and the bezelling to be much reduced - that feels like a missed opportunity, but it's obviously too late for that to be changed now. -...

Should the Touchpad, LIghtbar, and Motion sensor stay in the Dualshock 5?

in Sony Discussion on 11 July 2019

Hiku said: I like the extra buttons in the touch pad. For example, in training mode in fighting games, clicking the Right side of it will position your training dummy in the right corner. And Middle will center you both in the middle of the stage.This topic also made me wonder what button is used to bring up the map in other versions of Bloodstained?Other features I want to stay are...

Should the Touchpad, LIghtbar, and Motion sensor stay in the Dualshock 5?

in Sony Discussion on 11 July 2019

From an aestheitc point of view I'd like the touchpad to go - it's so damn ugly. Not bothered either way about the light bar. I hear games like Alien Isolation incorporated it nicely, so I guess there can be good uses for it, I've just never noticed any in the games I've played. In fact the only time I notice it is when it distractingly changes colours for no apparent reason. The motion...

‘Friends’ to Leave Netflix for WarnerMedia’s HBO Max Streaming Service in 2020

Is a 90s show really that big a draw for streaming services? O_o Oh well, doesn't impact me anyways, I don't watch shows via streaming or TV, but it does sound like it's going the same way as subscription services in gaming, where every publishers wants to have one. ...
