  1. Always good to see another Epica fan around :cool:


    I'm going to see Delain next week.  I'm not really going for Delain (think they're decidedly average) but for Cellar Darling, who are one of the support acts.  It's their first ever UK gig.  Kind of amusing that they're playing London the night before Eluveitie (as they're three ex-members of Eluveitie).

    Oh dear, must get back to watching Smallville. Sometime. :blush:


    i thought Supergirl was okay, Liked Legends, thought The Flash was a bit meh. Still got Arrow and Shannara to go. :) 


    Supergirl's pretty much the only one I'm watching now - and, as you say, it's just okay.  I gave up on Arrow and Legends last season, and The Flash has gone downhill faster than Barry Allen can run.  Didn't even make it through one episode of Shannara :lol:

    Hurray, New shows this week : Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Shannara Chronicles S2.


    I love how Supergirl is casting so many previous Superman/Supergirl actors - first Dean Cain and Helen Slater.  Now we seem to be in the midst of a Lois Lane-off - Teri Hatcher last season, now Erica Durance :D

  4. The only thing I'm really (re)watching at the moment is Fringe season 2.  I've just about given up on all the DC shows.  They all seem to have jumped the shark now - too many characters with new ones who aren't very good.  Arrow's the prime culprit.  I really, really hate what they've done with Wells in The Flash.  Even Supergirl has taken a nosedive and I used to be able to rely on that for a few laughs, at least.


    Really must catch up on Agents of SHIELD, though - I'm about four episodes behind at the moment  :doh:

  5. Since last post I've (finally) played and finished The Last of Us, which I loved - the writing and characters were soooo good.  I still haven't quite recovered from how it ended.


    And now I may be slightly obsessed with Horizon Zero Dawn.

  6. I finished the base game of The Witcher 3 on Friday.  Out of the multiple endings the one I got was so bittersweet  :wibbly:   After 140 hours in the game I've been feeling strangely bereft ever since, and that's even with knowing I've still got the two expansions to play :lol:   


    Love the combination of visuals and the song in this trailer:


  7. Is the OA not even worth watching for Jason Isaacs ? :(


    I'm sure you can find better things to watch him in  :smile:   The problem with The OA is that it flatters to deceive for the first three or four episodes and then descends into complete and utter drivel.  I don't think I've ever gone so quickly from being intrigued by a show to absolutely despising it  :giggle2:   But hey, knock yourself out.  And book some lessons in interpretive dance while you're at it  :banghead:  :giggle2:


    I finished watching season 1 of Travelers last night.  Very enjoyable, really hope it gets another season.  And I'm up to Fringe 1x09  :smile:


    The Witcher 3 I was unsure about, even though it's had such brilliant reviews. I played it for a bit a few months back whilst trying to decide what to play next and I thought the controls were rather clumsy. It could be because I'm more used to the GTA/Assassin's Creed style of play and this is more RPGey rather than action (not that I have a problem with RPGs, they are amongst my fave games of all time - Final Fantasy, Shining Force etc). Anyway, I did a few missions on Witcher 3, but I wasn't "getting it" so I put it aside to finish Watch Dogs. Though Uncharted 4 has now leapt to the top of the queue. ;)


    I think the controls can take a bit of getting used to, yeah - although I've not played it with a PS4 controller (I'm on pc with a 360 controller).  For me, it wasn't until I got past the prologue in White Orchard (which takes about 10 hours, probably) that the game really came alive.  Of course, you may not have the time to spare! :D   Once I finished that area and moved on to Velen the game blossomed and opened out into this huge, incredible experience, where even the secondary quests had more thought put into them than some games have in their main stories.  If you get to Velen and meet The Bloody Baron you'll get an idea what I mean in that regard.  It's not flawless by any means, but it does so much, and does it better than any other open world RPG I've played, and the characters and story are just so involving.  Love it.  Although I've really stuffed up poor Geralt's love life :giggle2:

  9. After finally feeling headache free on Saturday, I managed to start playing one of my Christmas presents - Uncharted 4. I'm already sucked into it, though I doubt I'll be able to get through it as quickly as I would have done in the past. Gaming opportunities are few and far between these days unless my husband is out of an evening, or if we give each other a night to take over the telly ;)


    :D   I finally got a PS4 for Christmas and I just finished Uncharted 4 about ten days ago.  You're in for a treat - the story, the action, the characters, the superb voice acting - I thought it was marvellous.



    Not as marvellous as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, though.  I held off getting it for ages and ages cos I didn't like the second game very much, then finally succumbed and bought it in the Black Friday sale on Steam.  I'm around 120 hours into it now and I haven't finished the main quest, let alone started the expansions, and yet I haven't been bored for one moment.  It's the best game I've ever played.

  10. Recently I've watched The OA (what a load of old tripe that turned out to be! :doh: )  I'm now working my way through Travelers, which has been a rather pleasant and enjoyable surprise.  And season 2 of The Expanse starts next week :yahoo:


    I've just started a re-watch of Fringe as well.  I'd forgotten just how much I loved that show.  

  11. I'm really happy Ore won.  I warmed to him in the last few weeks and I liked his dances best on the night.  I wouldn't have minded any of them winning, though - they were all great.  I reckon Oti might've cost Danny the win - great dancer and choreographer but as soon as she opened her mouth it was like fingernails scraping down a blackboard :giggle2:
