    [–] PLUS CLUB: Every month we play the games offered to us on Playstation Plus and at the end of the month we talk about them like a book club! In March we played The Witness and Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Let's talk about it! a-sneaky-npc 4 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in PlayStationPlus

    It's far worse than it seems.

    You have to complete all the puzzles within a short space of time. If you fail, the puzzles change when you start again. Not only that, all puzzles are randomly generated - there's no way to look up solutions on the internet.

    r/europe are pulling out the guns for this April Fools. Bloody brilliant!

    [–] Monday morning m’thread a-sneaky-npc 1 points ago in CasualUK

    Good idea.

    Or, if you want better odds of some return (although, it is still not guaranteed), buy scratchcards.

    Do not worry if you cannot run the whole way! The main thing is trying. There will be plenty of people in the same boat as you.

    [–] McDonalds monopoly... a-sneaky-npc 67 points ago in CasualUK

    Of course! I want you to have that holiday.

    Feel free to call me cynical, but got any proof of this win? A photograph of the squares maybe?


    All downvotes are from McDonald's marketing people~!

    People can easily sprout bullcrap from text posts - a picture is not a difficult request. OP is more than welcome to prove me wrong with such evidence and tell me to f-off.

    In defense of shared houses, they can be a cheaper form of accommodation; if you do not mind sharing with other people, and if those people are decent.

    In my case, I want my own space now. I dealt with shared houses for too long.

    • Elefantenrennen (Elephant Racing)

    A colloquial term for a situation in which a truck overtakes another on a road with several lanes (usually a highway ) with low speed difference.

    Being contractually stuck in a shared house is wearing me down.

    The sooner July comes, the better...

    [–] Is it actually possible to win anything on McDonalds Monopoly? Or is the only prize the bitter realisation that you’ve spent a load more on McDonald’s than you normally would, and gained weight in the process? a-sneaky-npc 32 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in CasualUK

    You can win pounds and pounds, in weight.

    But seriously, the most I won is a free meal or individual items on the McDonald's menu. If there are actual winners for the prizes, the game was designed to make the odds of winning rare.

    And I'm saying this as someone who learnt the truth, the fat way.

    Yeah, that's a common factor for all of Paradox's grand strategy games unfortunately - tutorials for those games can be in the hours, due to the number of tools that are thrown at you on the get go.

    If you google Arumba on youtube, he does a very good tutorial video series for all of Paradox's games. You will need time to watch them all, though.

    Good to know! My foxes will reign supreme!

    [–] Wasdnesday 27th March a-sneaky-npc 1 points ago in CasualUK

    I have yet to encounter one, but I'm expecting lots of fun and chaos!

    I heard good things about Stellaris: Console Edition and bought it the other week.

    This game certainly filled in the grand strategy itch I have been missing for a couple of months (been unable to play PC due to circumstances).

    I started playing as one of the default empires first (United Nations of Earth) and managed to last a few years; but ended up in a bit of a rut around mid-game; where I was surrounded by other empires and had little room to expand or grow. Looking at some posts in r/stellaris, I realised some of my errors, decided to create a new empire and am watching a tutorial series on youtube to learn about the tips and tricks I missed.

    So now I'm going to play as authoritarian foxes, who love to enslave other species, and are ruled by a spiritual Emperor.

    I have also played on some Apex Legends, but do not wish to risk burn out from the battle pass. I have put the game on the sidelines for now. The slowness of the battle pass levelling has triggered concerns similar to what I experienced with mobile games - in a sense that the game is trying to encourage you to play to make sure you fill in the daily/weekly quotas.

    The camera work on that documentary deserves some sort of award!

    [–] TVesday TVhread [26/03/2019] a-sneaky-npc 1 points ago in CasualUK

    Agreed. It could have done well by itself. I'm not a huge Star Trek fan and the fan service is rather annoying - I feel that some of the writing is trying to please those who prefer the episodic aspect of other Star Trek series.

    Relating to this, I'm glad the Orville is doing well - I really need to get round to watching it.

    [–] TVesday TVhread [26/03/2019] a-sneaky-npc 5 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in CasualUK

    I caught up with Star Trek: Discovery. The plot is interesting enough, but that last episode threw in a massive and verbal Chekhov's Gun. It ruined what could have been a fantastic plot twist!

    Saying that, the writing has been rather poor this season. It seems to rely on McGuffins and seems to reveal the potential plot twist with sudden quips or putting too much focus on 'that person' who suddenly appeared in the episode.

    [–] Soup recipes? a-sneaky-npc 3 points ago in CasualUK

    Sounds like you put too much passion in the blending.

    [–] Saw these guys at MCM Comic-Con Birmingham today a-sneaky-npc 2 points ago in CasualUK

    It's natural to ask questions, no worries there.

    And the term is why I PM'ed you. It is a can of worms in itself!
