  1. Sir Clive Sinclair has been carried into silicon heaven...in a C5.
  2. This week I got back on the road after almost two months of being without wheels. It's great. It almost feels like having a car for the first time again. And it's nice to have all the mod-cons that my old chariot was missing. As for today, right this minute. I've done a big shopping run, had a massive tidy up and a red hot bath. Now it's time for the vodka, games, music n films.
  3. Skyrim has been my forever-game since it came out. I'll probably skip this edition. I'm super anal about what mods I use and the idea of 500(!) random bits of Creation Club bull**** being plastered all over the place is off putting. Still, never say never, if the engine has any interesting changes I might be tempted. What I really want is a new edition of Fallout 4 that fixes the atrocious performance when shadows are cranked up. In other news, I tried the new version of Quake and it's sodding brilliant. Perfect. Love it. Loooooove it.
  4. At least the next time I have a week's worth of agony I'll know what's causing it. Old Desmond was long overdue for a replacement but I've gotten sentimental about him. I thought he had one last adventure in him but it wasn't to be.
  5. Finished the latest Handmaids Tale season. It was good, they're just about keeping the wheels on but it needs to wrap up next season. I can smell impending failure.
  6. A radiator clip had corroded and I lost all my coolant somewhere along the M6 and cooked the engine. It's not the first disaster with my old car (Desmond) but it looks like the last. To be honest this last few months has been shot through with bad times. I'm like some kind of disastrous Swiss cheese. After a weekend of particularly heavy drinking a hangover turned into a minor medical emergency. Turns out I passed a kidney stone and have six more lurking inside me
  7. My car died the permanent kind of death last week so I'm stranded for a while. Got a new amp to play with so it's been a day of music.
  8. Woah. You two are balls deep in mods. I'm surprised the game even loads I tend to keep mine super light, mostly fixes and a few dozen handmade gameplay tweaks. Years of crashy Bethesda games have literally traumatised me. Talking of Beantown Interiors, I once helped the author with his New Vegas mod. I spent about a fortnight fixing up all the spelling errors and lore inconsistencies in his notes and terminal entries. The bugger never used them though.
  9. I nibble away at FO4 every week or two. What's your mod list?
  10. Is that a known unknown?
  11. The best nights sleep I've ever had were all either at the end of a physical or emotional trial.
  12. Went for a CT scan on my kidneys cos I almost certainly have a kidney stone...hopefully a kidney stone. On the way home I went to do a ton of shopping at a swanky Marks & Spencer store. When I arrived home I happened to find a rain soaked package hidden in my back yard. This was no doubt the 60 year old record I ordered a couple of months ago. Slight sensation of shame for persecuting the seller about it, but sod it, not my fault. So now I'm going to open a bottle of wine and see if this filthy record actually plays.
  13. John McAfee - The world just got a little bit less interesting.
  14. Chances are this will be used to reheat cups of tea for the next few years so I'll pencil you in somewhere around 2025.
  15. Got up early to take delivery of a fancy new microwave/oven/grill thingy. I've done without one for most of my adult life so it's a brave new world. Spent the next few hours rearranging the kitchen and having a general tidy up. Now it's huge cup of tea and slack pants time.
  16. I find it difficult to call it an RPG but as an explore-em-up and shooter it's certainly great. I'm not going hard on the mods, almost entirely interface and gameplay tweaks with a ton of bugfixes. One thing that greatly improved the experience for me was playing as a female. The voice acting is waaay more consistent. The male character is all over the place, it's one cringe after another.
  17. Finally enjoying Fallout 4 after five years. Yes the dialogue sucks, and the lack of skills is galling. But now that there are mods available to fix the dozens of other niggles I can actually enjoy it for what it is rather than comparing it to New Vegas. 7/10 Bethesda...you c***s.
  18. So this years E3 is bollocks and stuffed with a ton of pre-rendered mood setters. I love that Obsidian chose to take the piss out of that.
  19. I ended up having a weekend of debauchery which ended in either a kidney stone or a bladder infection. I've had the luxury of not having to leave the house but now I have to take my car to the garage. Think I'll go grab a pizza on the way...
  20. That's actually a damn fine answer. Dunno what's wrong with this girl.
  21. Did some gardening for my Mum. Sat and took some sun. Did some shopping. Came home. Now drunk. Movie tiiiiiime.
  22. I enjoyed The Witch. I like that so much can be done with very little. Just a bit of woodland, a cabin and some good actors. Though, I did prefer The Lighthouse for its humour and perversity. More my kind of thing.
