  1. I still don't know if I'm 100% sold on home assistants, but every now and then I always think they could be handy... like once or twice a month But is that really enough to buy one? Not sure :/ The battle between Home and Echo is interesting, as no clear winner is really evident. Both do more or less the same things for roughly the same price (echo is a bit more expensive), but who do you trust more, Amazon or Google? I wonder if any other major companies are planning to release a home assistant too...
  2. Na it's okay thanks. I'm still not sure I want to get one just yet... but one day for sure.
  3. Of course Phantom Menace is the worst...that annoying kid and Jar Jar. Force Awakens pwns.
  4. Yeah I feel like John Wick is a badass because nearly everyone he's up against is a total idiot. Everyone seems to run at him, simply to get shot. Like that museum scene.... hasn't anyone heard of shooting from cover?
  5. I recently picked up some Marshall Major II headphones, and although they sound and look great, they squash my ears so badly after around 45 mins. I feel like my head is in a vice and have to rip them off. Why don't Marshall pick up on things like this during testing?
  6. Who is a good up-and-coming tennis star? All I ever hear about is Fed and Rafa
  7. I don't think it was a direct sequel if you get me. Like, the gap is so big that the new film is catered towards a new crowd.
  8. Fair shout. But maybe I'll get impatient and not wait for the 4 to come out. They aren't crazy expensive anyway
  9. It's actually kinda interesting to think about the way adblockers affect things such as web design and development. After all, websites do need the support of advertising to stay online :/ It's so tough, I mean, I hate the intrusion of web advertising but also want to support it as it helps keep my favorite sites alive. I guess as much as I can, I'll turn off the adblocker for certain sites.
  10. Ah yes, I had Wild Child on repeat a lot back in the day. I never liked their other songs soooo much, but Wild Child was an anthem
  11. i still wear a mechanical watch, but i'm interested in the idea of an apple watch. hands down the best smartwatch on the market, but I might wait until the series 2 is a bit cheaper and pick one up. Funny actually, i have a macbook and iPod but never had an iPhone.
  12. Gmail FTW. I've never liked the Hotmail UI.
  13. Ha, yeah I wanted this game to be good, but I found it so frustrating. Multiplayer is so stressful for me, I get anxiety thinking about it! Just the feeling that you can get shot from literally any angle...
  14. I got an ad-blocker to get rid of those pesky YouTube ads tbh. It's often an agonizing 5 seconds to wait Who is currently NOT using one? Interested to know why.
  15. Been listening to some Helloween today. I think I prefer Gamma Ray, but Halloween has been solid for most of their career.
  16. Maiden is a perfect example of a hit or miss band. I've not liked anything after 'Brave New World'. But not every album before that was gold. If I had to say my top 5 IM albums, it would cover a wide timeframe. 1. Brave New World (2000) 2. Iron Maiden (1980) 3. Killers (1981) 4. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (1988) 5. Number of the Beast (1982)
  17. What a letdown. I never played Destiny 1, but I'm a huge fan of the Halo series, so I thought Bungie would have made a fun and accessible game. Not true. First off, so many games these days have totally stopped giving a crap about the solo campaign. Everything has become about damn multiplayer, multiplayer, multiplayer (as someone who doesn't play multiplayer, this is rather annoying). There is absolutely no challenge in the Destiny 2 campaign, it's all about shooting as much as possible to level up your XP and gain new items. They are simplifying things to make sure that no one is scared of playing, but thereby making the process a complete waste of time. I could literally just spin around and shoot in circles and still get the job done. Even if you die, you're gonna get respawn a few seconds later. Secondly, the loot. I don't get the armor... if I get an upgraded item, why can't my player just wear it automatically? Why do I have to select it? Why would I want an inferior leg or chest armor? Guns are all fairly interchangeable, enemies are dull and repetitive. Level design is decent, but I get so tired of trudging around from the farm to earth. I just want a linear campaign without so much faffing about. Oh, and the straw that broke the camel's back? I had to pause the game for about 10 minutes, then when I came back, the game told me it had logged me out and I would have to repeat the 30 minutes I had been playing all over again. No thanks. Luckily, I rented it, so back to the store today! Give me Halo 6 asap 1.5/5
  18. I watched a few minutes of original Blade Runner and was bored within seconds. here's hoping the sequel is more exciting!
  19. Black Widow movie now? Mehh probably won't happen. Don't feel like she's interesting enough. Captain Marvel should be fun though (hate that name, makes me think she's aware she's in a Marvel movie)
  20. I'm so happy this was a success for DC. If this one got the same reception as B vs. S and suicide squad...then it could have been a long time before people trust DC again. Thankfully, all good!
  21. I can't think of why I'd need an AW just yet, but they do look so cool. Happy with my Seiko watch atm.
  22. 100% gotta be Ocarina of Time. I know those chords like the back of my hand
