Got an HTC Vive myself, and yeah the cables and suchlike are a bit of a nuisance. BUT...

...it's fucking amazing!
I'm currently enjoying The Lab from Valve - as with most of the best VR it's essentially a bunch of tech demos, but bloody good ones. Very much recommended.

Moss is a beautiful platformer that has been developed just for VR, where you control a mouse who has a sword. Very much recommended.

Google Earth goes without saying. Not brilliant, but bloody good.

And the Nvidia Funhouse is OK too, but again is essentially a tech demo.

Things that you think would work perfectly, like Skyrim and Fallout, actually tend to be a bit shonky IMO.

Niemand's best Dredd so far, and considering all his others are sublime then thats saying something!
He's a keeper, Tharg...

Just noticed an art cock-up in this weeks Dredd... I'll not say what it is though  ;)

...to the exploration of America's gay panic that powered the original Nightmare On Elm Street.

Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2, surely?
Not sure that idea holds up for part 1...  :-\

Great proggage, just great. Primary thought: Lynch's art coloured by Boswell is an absolute joy

Good god yes! Lynch and Boswell work so well together, more please Tharg!

Since the Art Comp has gone a bit ‘mainstream’ I can’t really get into it. Which is a shame. That’s just me, of course.

I know what you mean. Just harder to work up enthusiasm.

Still, the Mighty CFM can do no wrong in my book - surely a KTT is in order?

Just received the most recent delivery for me (Slaine and Stront - no idea how behind I am!) and they were in the recyclable bag. *Slight* corner damage, but nothing I care about.

Just to ask, but are squished corners really such a problem? If you're planning to re-sell them then definately, but for the completionist who will never sell them (myself *cough*) is it really such a big deal?

Sorry if this seems a bit blase, I'm just curious as to others feelings on this....

But please no more Tracey Skipper, even the mighty Macneil couldn't save that one!

I'm full of love for Proteus Vex, but mainly due to the Flint droid's art.
Totally agree that a character can be unexplained and still work (Shakara, Nemesis), but I'd still like an episode that gives us a better idea of Vex themselves.

That said, I trust in the Carroll droid to deliver the goods!

Prog's on fire at the moment.
Bagsy Grennie as Kenneth Neimand! ;)

Amazon also make The Marvelous Miss Maisel, which is great as long as you don't look up the politics of its barmy creator - though I imagine if you were worried about politics you wouldn't be using Amazon in the first place.

I can't  watch it without thinking "Is this anti-Semitic? I just don't know."

I can't watch it without thinking "why isn't this about her manager instead?"
Getting a little sick of following the stories of rich, 'good looking' types.

Although the real problem with McKenzie is that he tried to assert more rights than he was willing to give other writers and simultaneously claim that the artist has no creator rights. Which was, to be polite, not very nice.

Summer Magic was good, though.

I was hoping for a revival of Luke Kirby in the prog after the complete edition came out, but alas nothing.

The hachette volume is great for SMS's work, not so great for Bisley's. IMO, of course.
