Quote Gankom: Gah! I may kill someone.

I have this thought on a regular basis but there’s so many to choose from in my life that it wouldn’t be fair to others if I only chose one 🙀😺

Edit: just in case I better say I’m joking.  :engel:

I ordered Master of Mankind and The Lost omnibus yesterday so I'm looking forward to those arriving.

Otherwise I've been on a pretty good nonfiction kick. Some historical work on the Templars and the Crusader states, a biography of Russian general Georgy Zhukov (Which was fantastic and really puts the Eastern front into scale. Some of the numbers are ridiculous.) and a couple of books on the North American fur trade and frontier.

Has it really not been publicised though? I feel like I see commercials every break like usual. I've seen interviews and reviews. They had people on Graham Norton and the other various talk shows. I totally agree it doesn't have the same buzz that previous star wars movies had, but I don't know if it's because it hasn't been getting the same publicity.

I'm generally agreed with there being to many marvel and star wars movies a year. I Think they would do better more spaced out. Marvel movies I almost always enjoy, but they're not going to end up on my top ten of the year list. Certainly not top movies ever. I really liked Thor Ragnorok, Black Panther was enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to getting out to see Deadpool 2. Avengers I've always been a bit meh on and I feel like having 20-30 mainish characters is just... not really my thing. Still, everything I've heard about it makes me think I'll enjoy seeing it.

Like Wiss I really liked Rogue One with the other two being enjoyable but not nearly as great as the original trilogy.

Star Wars done and Avengers sucking...strong words from a strong man.

Thank you! :blush: Don't get me wrong, the movie delivered what it promised. It just wasn't good. Which is a no surprise, really.

I mean, I disagree, but so be it. Overall I really like the MCU and thinj Infinity War was very well done.  For the newest Star Wars I thought Rogue One was great with the other two being decent though sadly underwhelming with some perspective.

Divinity 2 is a fantastic game. I only played it for a bit with a friend, but it was great. I totally get what your saying Aldaris about it.

I've been trying to play Sins of a Solar Empire again. I love the game. I love the colonizing aspect and the space fights. However, and I cant figure out why, my game keeps crashing every 23 minutes on the dot. I've reinstalled it, the drivers, the DIVX9 thing, everything. Googled around and can't find the same kind of problem that I'm having. Couple of other crashing related things, but nothing that solves my problem. It doesn't help that I don't get a real error message. Just a "We detected a problem with your game" followed by looking at the desktop.

Gah! I may kill someone.

Quote Xath: The ammount of bugs, glitches and bad gameplay decisions, coupled with a bug which made me unable to finish the game, made mu uninstall this piece of shit in a record time.

Yipes!!
Disappointing for sure.

Sadly the youtuber TotalBiscuit passed away yesterday. 33 years old, dyed of Cancer. He was probably one of the biggest youtubers I watched. He could be incredibly abrasive at time, but really made youtubers a bit more professional and less screamy kiddy.

Steg has a point.

The last two movies plus Rogue 1 have all been Xmas releases and seem to have been better publicised. Maybe there is an element of this one not being on the radar.
