Fuck man, actually saddended by this. Really used to like Linkin Park, even some of their later stuff. Didn't know he was going through anything or what, but still a shock to me. Expecting Crawling in my Skin jokes but fuck... first famous person death in a while that's made me a bit sad.

They left me in a world of darkness, without your sexy hands...

Gaming / Might have a go at another Nuzlocke.

I actually kind of enjoyed my last attempt, and drawing a comic to accompany it was great, had a lot of little in-jokes I was quite proud of. Never did finish it, though. I don't feel like doing Gen 3 again, so I'm either gonna do maybe Gen 5 or 6.

The Flood / I don't like Lyanna Mormont
« on: July 19, 2017, 04:46:22 AM »
Add this to the list of things the show does wrong, I guess. I really enjoy the show but I just find Lyanna Mormont irritating. She seems a bit too fanservice-y to me, because people sure do love the 'badass little girl' character don't they?

Looking back, I remember I had to in school. I just thought it was normal at the time, but now it seems dodgy as hell, trying to get kids in the Christian mindset like that.

What are your thoughts on this

The Flood / Abandoned wildlife park
« on: July 16, 2017, 01:39:34 PM »
Bit of an uphill trek this one, and Welsh weather is usually really wet so there was a lot of slipping and sliding about, muddy hands galore. I would have taken more pictures but my phone screen got water damage and I couldn't get the photos of it, so all I have left is the few I took on the last remaining storage space of the camera, did get some nice pics of the old toboggan track though.  Hope you enjoy.

An old pub in Neath. Been around since the 1600s! Pic dump, beware.

I thought that they were like soft little capsules of potato, I had no idea beans were just their own thing.


Weird.

The Flood / Heard a loud ass plane flying over
« on: July 12, 2017, 06:29:59 AM »
It sounded a lot louder than usual so I stuck my head out my window to see what was up there, and the plane was tiny. I was a bit confused, but upon further inspection it was just a seagull. The plane was out of sight.

Strange times my friends.

Oops wrong forum, oops.

The Flood / Terminator 3 deleted scene with Sgt. Candy
« on: July 11, 2017, 09:32:12 AM »
YouTube


What a wonderfully bizarre scene showing the origins of the Arnie T800 design. I didn't really like T3 but I adore this scene because of how fucking silly it is.

I mean, I'm not sitting here hoping that there's a terrorist attack or a massive disaster, but I actually kind of enjoy the whole experience of staying up late, keeping up to date with events and reading all of the details as they come out. I find it really riveting, like when the Ariana Grande attack happened I stayed up really late reading all of the reports that were coming out.

When the Grenfell Tower blaze happened, part of me was wishing the tower would collapse because it'd be a real shocking moment seeing that happen live on camera as I'm watching. Of course I didn't WANT it to happen because loads more people would die but it would have been quite a sight to see, right?

Does anyone else get this? Is it a morbid curiosity? Maybe I'm just sick in the head.

The Flood / Okay so, something strange just happened.
« on: July 10, 2017, 05:16:12 PM »
For some backstory, I've been feeling incredibly shitty lately. Turns out going through a breakup and letting go isn't the easiest thing in the world, and I haven't been happy.

Yesterday I had a shower, and after getting out, I was looking at my foggy reflection in the steamed up mirror. It was one of those weird self-reflection moments that you see on TV or something, and I drew a smiley face with my finger over my own face. Dramatic? Yeah, but I just felt like doing it.

So just now, after having a bath, I was looking at myself in the same mirror while drying my hair. The mirror had since cleared and steamed over again, so my original smiley face had gone, but... now there was another, smaller one slightly to the right of where mine was.

I took two pics from different angles to try and show it, it's hard taking a photo of a mirror with my phone so bear with me.

 

Okay, I know people here are rightfully skeptical, and I am too. I'm fully aware of paredoila and similar effects, so maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's just parts of the mirror that has un-steamed or whatever. It still looks like a drawn face to me.

I did think it could have been my dad that did it, but he always complains if I draw on the mirror or car windows because it takes longer to clear, or something. I even asked him if he'd drawn a smiley face on the mirror and he said no.

Part of me is hoping it's my dad, but the other part is hoping it wasn't, and this is my own little message from someone who's watching.
If, if, IF it wasn't him that did it, I think it's kinda nice. Do spirits pick up on people's feelings? Was it someone watching over me, giving me a smiley face back?

Sorry if it doesn't look like much, but I thought I'd share.

Gaming / Final Fantasy 12 the Zodiac Age
« on: July 10, 2017, 01:13:23 PM »
It's due out tomorrow but Tesco had it today, so I nabbed the last copy. It looks really nice.

I can't find find a way to disable the speed up mode, though. Is there even an option?

The Flood / Spoiler Just saw Spider-Man Homecoming.
« on: July 09, 2017, 03:40:55 PM »
I enjoyed it a lot. Keaton was actually good as the Vulture, it's about time they actually got an interesting villain for one of these films. I thought Tom Holland did a good job at portraying an actual teenaged Peter Parker AND a teenage Spider-Man.

One thing, though. There are two points in the movie where Peter has to leave somewhere to go do heroic Spider-Man stuff. I get it, it's part of his character having to balance the two. I think it would have been much better if he had actually stayed at the first party and later realized the consequences of staying, which would have really hammered home the theme of responsibility and made the scene of him leaving prom that much better.

Unfortunately the film didn't have many 'wow' moments to match the ending scene of Spider-Man 1, or the train scene of Spider-Man 2. The scene that really stood out to me though, was when he was trapped under the rubble after Vulture brings down a roof on him. He actually calls for help. Yeah he may be a superhero, but he's a fucking kid. He's vulnerable, he's calling out for someone that isn't there. I really liked that scene. Of course it was followed by a total cheese moment, but still it really stood out to me.


Also I would have liked to have seen some shots of him swinging through the city, but I guess he's still just the friendly NEIGHBOURHOOD Spider-Man.
Did you like it?

Gaming / Save your game
« on: July 09, 2017, 08:19:18 AM »


Also, how many times do you usually end up saving your game? On a game like Pokemon I usually save about twice because I forgot if I saved the first time.

Gaming / Metal Gear 30th Anniversary (actually on the 13th)

30 years ago the first game was released on the MSX in Japan today.

Good times.

Gaming / PSN: Big in Japan sale until the 19th
« on: July 06, 2017, 05:46:47 PM »
Lots of weebery going on here but there's some pretty good deals on the store, especially the PS3 one. Can get most of the Final Fantasy and Metal Gear games for dirt cheap.

I can't seem to find a complete list in text form anywhere though so go look.

I had this game back on the Wii, it was great. Wasn't expecting it to resurface, so that's cool.

Does anyone here have it on the PS4? I'm playing it with my cousin and it seems so simple but fucking hell it's scary when you hear the music and see him running at you.

Gaming / Dishonored is great
« on: July 04, 2017, 10:49:37 AM »
Lots to do in missions, it's fun finding out different methods of sneaking past people and taking them out.
 I had to get rid of this guy somehow, so I was sneaking around trying to think of what to do. I was under the impression that the guy he's talking to here was friendly to me so I made an attempt to choke out my target and well... this happened. I love it when unexpected stuff like this happens.

Gaming / Forced walking sections in games
« on: July 03, 2017, 11:08:39 AM »
Don't you just love those parts in games when your character whips out their phone or has to follow someone while walking slowly?

I think it's just greeeeat. It really gets me to my objective so much faster. Why does Batman need to stop and stare at his little phone screen on his wrist to talk?

The Flood / I think I got food poisoning
« on: July 03, 2017, 06:20:50 AM »
I went out for a family meal yesterday and the food was alright. In the car journey home I began dropping horrific farts, I'm talking proper Chernobyl reactor level guffs here. Cut to the evening and I had to take about five shits, my stomach feels like it's just been fucked by Ivan Drago. My ass is sore as all hell, what can I do to ease the pain? All I have is Andrex wet wipes and sudocrem.

So nobody wastes money paying to see this. Megatron negotiating with humans in a Suicide Squad esque scene to get his awkward underlings to be released....


Just.

Wat.

Gaming / Trophies/Achievements
« on: July 02, 2017, 04:53:05 AM »
What's your opinion on them? Personally when I first start a game I don't really go out of my way to get them, but if I take a look at the trophy list and see that the platinum is within reason I make an effort to go for it. I really do love hearing that ping sound and seeing my level go up, it's so satisfying. It's like having a nice little collection.

Amazing Spider-Man 2 wasn't anything special, but I did actually kinda like what they did with Electro's theme in the film, with the whispering in the background building up and stuff.
