    What was your last purchase

    I didn't take that picture :D Though I did get that black case/cover behind it in the pic. Great device though, going from a 6 year old Nook to the Kindle and the backlight alone made it worth it.

    The Game Thread!

    yeah the game's definitely looking better post patch I think. Personally I hope the game plays smoother as well on my system as the crashes at times were getting beyond a joke Strangely I'm quite liking the character's Peebee is the only one I'm not really connecting with really and Jaal is kind of  of a male Tali I feel really in that he and  his people do share a lot of similarities to the quarians in that they seem to be a more emotional people in the way they behave and in their genreal mannerisms. Vetra kind of feels like a female Garrus in that if she has to get her hands dirty in order to achieve something she will. Drack is your typical Krogan a nice mix of Grunt's aggression but with Wrex's wisdom. Peebee kind of reminds me of Sera in DAI and I was never that keen on Sera either tbh they kind of feel like the spoiled brat of the team. That kind of personality I've always found harder to click with. Liam and Cora aer basically the typical Ashley/Kaidan partnership there to show you're not on your own. I enjoyed my first playthrough and am looking forward to seeing what the future DLC's have in store and I definitely plan on doing more playthrough's as well I can see myself sinking a lot of hours into MEA this year. My next run will be as Scottt as I've not done him yet but I've definitely got another Sara planned as well so looking forward to that. Will likely use the default name for my second Sara though as I want to hear what it's like when the characters use your proper name instead of just Ryder or Pathfinder. Peebee is my favourite :p The rest of the squad are definitely a bit blander to me. And using the default name makes zero difference, I have and you still get called Ryder or Pathfinder.

    It was pretty damn crazy :) Though I was a little disappointed with the result. After his antics at the final race of last season, I've not been able to look at di Grassi without thinking of him as a dirty cheater.

    I actually quite like Addison, despite the overuse of makeup and her face hurting lol. She's no-nonsense, gets shit done, and says what she wants even if it's insulting to the person she's talking to. Tann is the real A-hole, he changes his opinion instantly to make himself look good to the Pathfinder, and is all about image rather than actually doing anything. He's the one character I've really disliked so far.

    I've had a few bugs here and there, getting stuck on a loading screen was about the worst of it so far. But I've put 27 hours into it since Thursday evening, and **** whatever the reviewers think, I absolutely love Andromeda. yeah the fast paced action took a little while to get used to at first but thankfully my biggest concern was it would be too hard for me to play because of that and the new power system thankfully I'm finding it no harder than the trilogy really so far in terms of combat. Yes I've died a few times but then I've died a few times on the trilogy as well and still do when I play it. Yeah it got stuck on a loading screen earlier on me too so had to reload from an earlier save but I'm really enjoying the story. For once I'd say the reviewers have got it wrong. Yes the facial animations are a bit bad but that aside I'd say that's the only negative I can find on it so far. But then I didn't think they were that great in DAI either so I'd put it probably down to Frostbite than anything. Think I've died twice so far, and both times it did annoy me that I'd have to start the fight all over again. The first time it happened was fighting one of those massive Architect's on Voeld, I was seconds from killing it when I died, then had to restart the entire fight. As for the facial animations, they seem on par to ME 1,2, and 3 to me. People saying they're the worst of the 4 games probably haven't played the first 3. I don't care what the critics are saying though, they can bash it all they want. Any game that can get me to play 27 hours of it in the first 4 days of it's release is bloody good to me. yeah the facial animations aren't perfect but they're far from disastrous though as Bioware don't usually get stuff like that wrong. But yeah the big boss type fights are quite challenging. At least it looks like they've improved on that from DAI as some of the boss fights there were quite easy. Not that I mind it too much as I'm more interested in the story than the combat when it comes to Bioware's games. Yeah just started on Voeld myself and died about 3 or 4 times trying to kill the boss who kidnapped the Moshae. Tough fight but one I found I definitely needed to stay mobile in as his powers are pretty damaging. Managed to nail it in the end but all good. So far I'm really enjoying my Biotic infiltrator that I'm RP'ing. I'm really enjoying being able to mix 2 classes together a bit. I know you can pick up powers from anywhere more or less but I'm trying to limit myself to taking abilities from a mix of 1 or 2 classes like in the trilogy to give it a bit more of a challenge. I've got 46 hours logged in on it so far The Moshae boss was my second death :p That one has that attack where if you get caught in the energy sphere the Cardinal can insta-teleport to you and just fuck you up lol. I got caught that way. Second time I did it though I messed up the Cardinal good and proper, did much better. I kept a distance though and used a sniper rifle the second time. So far I've not used any of the biotic stuff :p Was never really my thing in the previous games either. I think my class thing says that I'm a combat infiltrator, and my main two powers are the stealth cloak and flamethrower lol. @Hughesy, I'm gonna be PO'd massively if Destiny 2 doesn't come to PC. Loved the first one but screw consoles.

    So it turns out Couger is half right :p I did a little bit of digging after his post cos I was sure it had been taken out too. But apparently if you pull down the notification panel and then long press on the settings cog until your phone vibrates, it unlocks a new settings section named System UI Tuner where you can enable the percentage :) Got my Sony XZ today, absolutely love it! It's so fast to use, and it feels way comfier in hand than my Z3 did. The screen is way more vibrant too which is weird considering it's the same screen as the Z3 lol. Absolutely loving the fingerprint sensor on it, being able to check my bank accounts with that instead of having to input my 8 digit code is so much more convenient. Also having USB type C on it and being able to use a Quick Charge 3.0 charger (bought one in advance) the battery charging is way faster :)

    Also as it's running the same stock Android as my Nexus 9, your battery indicator in the top right is just a little battery right? Download an app named Percent Enabler and it'll add some tiny numbers onto the battery icon to give you a proper reading :) And you should have a feature that lets you double tap the screen to wake up the phone, I highly recommend enabling it and giving it a go. I use it way more often than the power button on both my tablet and phone. It's just way faster.

    So excited for this to arrive. Sold my Xbox One, my Sony Z3 and a handful of other bits to get it, but I think it'll be worth it :)

    I've had glasses for about 9 months now, weird as hell at first but it's like second nature to me now aha Definitely weird :p I can't deny how much they're helping my eyes stay in focus though, rather than drifting out and me having to force them to focus again lol. Had em since Monday and I'm very much still getting used to wearing them.

    How can you say this sweet little boy isn't cute? :p Also he jumps at the slightest noise so playing RE7 with him there wouldn't be nice to him lol.

    RE7 is actually pretty awesome. Played just over an hour of it last night before being inturrepted and quitting.

    Where'd you buy it from dude? I've been waiting to get it for ages now, but it's been very stubbornly stuck above £20 lol.

    We get it Sharpie, you're excited for Mass Effect :p I played the original Prey but I can't really remember a lot about it. Though I do remember it made my head spin when you'd be standing on the ceiling shooting at enemies on the floor who seemed upside down to you but you were actually upside down lol.
