I think they all had interesting ideas but I found most of the conclusions disappointing.

This sums up Black Mirror for me

My ranking:

  1. Hang the DJ
  2. Black Museum
  3. Arkangel
  4. USS Callister
  5. Metalhead
  6. Crocodile

Seeing as San Junipero and Hang the DJ are my 2 favourite episodes, I don't think Black Mirror is really for me. I feel each episode has a good premise, but they take it to far and go for a cheap shock at the end or ask for a sudden leap in logic.

Dead Orbit. Black Shaders + Peter Stormare's sweet voice is a no brainer.

Exactly! I hope they've brought him back.

I saw that there was the introductory engram bundle you could buy for 900 and it looked like you could quite a lot from it. I went to see how much 900 silver would cost.

I'd have to buy 1000 silver for £8.39

Fuck that.

@evilcalvin: give it a few days and people will have the raid all mapped out. Then you can go in with a good group and get it done.

Raids are the most complex part of the game and have lots of mechanics that you won't have used anywhere else. It's what makes them exciting.

As for knowing if you need a team or not. When you hover over an activity, like the Raid, or Strikes, it will say whether Matchmaking is available or not. If it's not, then you need to go in with your pre-made team.

Keep those confusing names rolling.

Light: Because the white text burns into my eyes after reading for just a minute or two. I then see paragraphs of text off screen and it freaks me out and hurts my eyes. Imagine an open window blind overlaying your vision. Happy that so many people like the dark theme, but I'm even more happy they give us the option. I might not frequent the site as much as I do if only dark existed.

Exactly! I get this too! I never understood why people would use dark themes and be able to put up with it. I guess it doesn't happen to everyone.

I hope they don't get rid of the light theme like Jeff was hinting at.

I recall having to swap 11 discs playing Monkey Island 2 on a friend's Amiga.

The Secret of Monkey Island was 5 discs. I remember my Dad saying MI2 was 11 and he couldn't be bothered with that :( So I didn't play MI2 until I got it on PC.

With other games though, I some times buy retail PC games if they are cheaper, but I never actually use the discs. It's faster (or just as fast) to use the steam key and download from there.

@alistercat: It's back up to £35 on Amazon too now. Good thing I jumped on it when it was £26! (£24 with my prime discount).

I was pleased to see this, until I saw the price.

The PC (DVD, with Steam code) version is £26 on Amazon. The Xbox/PC digital version is £53! Double the price.

I'm really willing and wanting to go fully digital, especially if more games are going to be cross play between Xbox and PC, but not at that price.

It's really just the icon on screen.

The problem could be that there is a countdown to when the ship arrives, and then it doesn't hang around for long. It's possible that you were too early or too late to catch it.
