Both of these have been great. Excellent job Molch-R and everyone involved!

Really looking forward to this one. When I came to the board asking for the pick of Dredd stories that I had missed in the previous few years, The Pit was mentioned more than once.

Oh, for fuck's sake. Tharg and Ian have each other's phone numbers: if Ian was desperate to work for 2000AD again, he knows how to make that happen. Or are you campaigning to have him work on a strip when his heart's not really in it? Because we know how well that worked out last timeā€¦
Fair point, but it doesn't hurt to remind Tharg of our enthusiasms. :)

Gibson is my favourite 2000AD artist by quite some margin. Whatever can be done to entice him back to the comic should be done.

I'm really curious about Alien: Isolation. Other than some of the professional reviews I've heard nothing but praise for it - my problem is that I find horror games really stressful to play on my own!
I cant help but feel that I just won't have the resilience to play Alien after being at work all day and I'll end up playing something fun and happy like Mario instead.
I played the first four or five hours in the dark with full surround, and just had to stop playing it that way. I spent three-quarters of my game-time cowering in foot-lockers. Even with the lights on, you have to train yourself to take risks. It is a very scary game, and probably won't be the tonic you need after a hard day at work. :)

ALien: Isolation, PC. 15 hours in and now just trying to survive (what I assume is) the finale.

Remarkable game, especially if you're an insane, won't hear a word against it, best-film-ever, "Alien" fan. Probably the best-looking and sounding game I've ever played, as well. Amazing. Can't fathom some of the poor reviews it got.

Dredd: Love it. Salivacious art, and I feel like the story is finally getting into gear. I have two problems, though. Anderson looks too young (unless there's a Dreddworld reason for that I've missed?),

I think Greg has modelled his version on everybody's favourite cosplayer and Planet Replica's official model Integra Fairbrook
Oh yeah, I see that now.

Six months into my re-subscription to the two mags, I feel like I'm finally grokking the modern 2000AD as opposed to the 20-year-old memories of the comic I've had since I unsubscribed in the early 90's. Saturday morning post is becoming one of the highlights of the week!

Dredd: Love it. Salivacious art, and I feel like the story is finally getting into gear. I have two problems, though. Anderson looks too young (unless there's a Dreddworld reason for that I've missed?), and the strip so far feels like an awesome 60-page graphic novel arbitrarily split into weekly installments.

Ulysses Sweet: This is a new one on me. It's a grower, but I hope it doesn't out-stay its welcome. The guffaw humour is a nice change of pace. Anyone else spend too long staring at that hamburger? That was one fine looking hamburger.

Orlok: Great strip. Feels kind of old-school. Early days but loving the pace.

The Order: I'll admit I sometimes tire of the genre-crossover game, but this one has me in its claws. Funny this week, too.

Savage: As an old reader who has clearly forgotten most of what he ever knew about the ABC Warriors (which probably wasn't much), this one has me skidding around for context. The strip's politics are a bit on the nose but I can live with that. Can anyone point me at a good resource for how this strip intersects with ABC?

You know those times where you wish you had any artistic talent whatsoever?

Loving this thread!

Help! / Re: Netflix or equivalent? Recommendation please
« on: 12 January, 2015, 01:31:40 pm »
We have both Netflix and Amazon at the moment. Honestly, I mostly have Amazon because the Prime 1-day delivery you get bundled with it is really useful, but it has had its moments.

Far and away, though, Netflix is the superior service. It's excellent value for money.

Hi!

Now I admit, it's been a while since I was last here, but don't punish the rest of the board for my absence!

Can I have my posting privs back please? :)

General / Prevarication complete
« on: 12 June, 2014, 10:54:20 am »
I um'd. I ah'd. But I finally did it. I got the combi magazine subscription. My first prog arrived just yesterday.

It was a weird feeling, getting a 2000AD in the post. For all the years I collected it in my youth, it was always with a trip to the news-agent or WHSmith's. I loved that ritual, in fact.

So, it feels great to have it delivered to my door, but also strangely...passive as well. I'll get over it.
