    Thread res-erection. If you ever meet an archaeologist, hand him a used tampon and ask if he knows what period it's from.

    Nothing to see here

    I love all the GTA games but 4 was my least favourite, as despite seeming like a good idea on paper, the map of New York just didn't work as rows of identical streets. Was just a bit boring. The main reason, however, was the main man Niko, I just didn't like him at all. When I played the additional content with different main characters I liked it a lot more. I actually think I've lost all interest in consoles. The last 3 games I played (aside from the waste of money mentioned here before deleting) were GTA5, The Last of Us and the last Uncharted game. If I could have got those on PC I wouldn't have even bothered getting them. Think the PS4 will be my last one.

    Upgrade or new PC?

    Thanks guys. I'm not quite at 4k gaming but my new monitor is 3440 x 1440 which is obviously a big step up from 1080P. Think I'll just wait for the new cards to come out then, either get one of those or see if they knock the cost of the 1070/1080 down a bit. Add another 8G of RAM and hope everything else holds together for a while longer.

    Upgrade or new PC?

    Does anybody who still loiters on here actually know anything about current PC components? It's been many years since I last took any notice. My PC is about 3 and a half years old now and the upgraded monitor is taking it's toll. I thought about upgrading the GPU early this year but the prices were insane. What I'm wondering is how the rest of the spec looks now, as while I've had a read bout GPUs and that there are new ones coming in a few months, so it makes sense to wait, is the rest of my system going to hold a new GPU back? That sentence was way too long. I have zero interest in building a new PC from scratch (seriously, I don't want to do it so don't tell me how easy it is, I've done it in the past, I'm just not interested). So yeah, upgrade or just buy a new PC? Core i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHZ 8 Gig of RAM GTX 970 What I don't want is to upgrade the GPU and then find the CPU goes bad shortly after. How long do they last these days? Is that CPU still any good? And I assume 16G of RAM is the minimum these days?

    What Do You Collect?

    I'm assuming that's a life-size piece? No idea what it's from so give us some more details. How do you display something like that? Yeah, the statues are cool. I should probably do a final update pic of my collection. As I said in the reviews thread I've sold off most of my Hot Toys figures so I've just got one wall of Marvel and DC statues left and no more room. I'm priced out of the hobby now anyway, the statues I bought for £270-£340 are all now £500-£550. It's just too much. If anyone is interested in any that I've previously posted pics of let me know as I'm still selling off those I no longer want to keep, including the Darth Vader statue.

  8. I'm not the sort to have 7 hour gaming marathons so it'll take me ages to finish it. I like it so far, some of the missions are so long and multi-stage that it's hard to dip in for a quick game as you don't know how long you'll be in a mission. As with the other FC games, I love clearing out outposts more than anything else in the game. It may have new ways of doing things, like coming across missions/outposts etc by exploring or getting told about them by NPC's, rather than unlocking a bunch by climbing towers, but it's essentially the same game as the others. If you liked them you'll probably like this, if you didn't, nothing's going to change your mind here. I'm finding it quite hard too, even on medium, but I'm no gaming pro. It's a good level of difficulty that's not enough to get frustrating but enough to make me punch the air after completing something after a few failed attempts. How's everyone else finding it? Or how are you finding it Barry, if we're the only two have bought it!
  9. I was well happy to see the pre-load as it takes me a day to download games on my shitty internet. About to dive in now...first game I've really been looking forward to for a long time.

    The other day I decided to splash out and buy some Andrex Shea Butter toilet rolls so I thought I'd review them for you guys. Andrex have been at the top of their game for years. The secret to their success is quite simple, use a really cute puppy in advertising and packaging, normally bouncing along trailing a length of toilet paper out of its gob for added cuteness. It's a plan that was pretty much fail proof as research has shown that the only people who don't like cute puppies are serial killers and dentists. Andrex have evolved their line of toilet papers over the years to add "features" that make them more and more luxurious. These days you can find toilet paper that is quilted, scented and softened. It's pretty much the equivalent of wiping your bum with a fluffy cloud. And who doesn't want that? History lesson over, I've been using my packet of Andrex Shea Butter toilet rolls for a couple of weeks now. Shea butter is commonly used in cosmetics as a moisturiser or lotion. The toilet paper is also enriched with vitamin E, which can't be a bad thing, although I'm not aware of any particular benefits gained from applying this directly to your anus. I spoke to a respected nutritionist who confirmed that "while vitamin E should be taken in as many forms as possible, wiping your ass is not a viable alternative to eating peanuts." So how is it in use? Deliberately avoiding any messy and graphic descriptions, it does a decent job at what it's supposed to do. It's very soft yet tough and not too thick, unlike some of the quilted papers available. I'll probably go back to the standard Andrex rolls I've always used with the pictures of puppies on them. I think I've got used to them and anything else feels weird. The packaging for these Shea Butter enriched toilet rolls also contains "instructions" for people trying out toilet paper for the first time. Recently adopted feral kids who were raised by bears, for example. They recommend 3-4 sheets per wipe, I'd say 1 or 2 is adequate unless you're mopping up the remains of last night's curry. Oh and wipe from front to back they say, because wiping the used side of toilet paper towards your genitals is bad. Then wash your hands before you stick them in your mouth (or anyone else's). All good advice. In closing, they're OK. The benefits of shea butter and vitamin E in a toilet roll I'm unsure about, but they're worth a go if you fancy trying some luxury toilet paper. I imagine Supernovi will pop by soon to say that he needs to wipe his ass at least 200 times per second or it's unwipeable, so these wouldn't be any good for him. Come on people, review stuff...

    I understood it after the first video, I’m not sure why you both think otherwise. I even said I’m not saying it’s impossible for it to feel smoother at 100FPS. If having read that article you now believe that something which can have an effect which amounts to milliseconds of difference to input lag, makes the game unplayable, I’m not sure what to say. I assume you were playing an unplayable game for about 100 hours while you had V-Sync on. Bizarre.
