Re: Gaming laptops and fan noise

I don't think there's a catch-all rule for these things; some laptops are just packaged better than others. I've had non-gaming laptops that were incapable of being powered on for more than 5 minutes without the fans audibly kicking in. Maybe try reading reviews of your specific model, see if anyone...

Re: General Film News

Given how good the first one was, I'd give it the benefit of the doubt if I thought the musical aspects were an issue, but for me they're not. I don't think it's particularly unusual for characters portrayed with severe mental illnesses to imagine themselves singing and dancing, it's probably been d...

Re: Star Wars: Outlaws

This is launching on 30th August, and there's a story trailer to whet the appetite. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NledFrN47u4 I'm still hesitant to get excited for it if I'm honest. It looks like it's a fairly lavish production, but nothing in the actual gameplay has really grabbed my interest. Al...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

My washing machine managed to completely turn itself off this morning with a drum-load and without draining. Firstly, washing machines are unbelievably awkward to drain without power, to the point where all of the skirting boards around the damned thing are now warped from water damage. I couldn't e...

Re: Currently Playing

I'm just hoping it gets a PC release sooner rather than later. I also finished a game I very much enjoyed over the weekend; Jedi Survivor . It's a better game than its predecessor, and extremely generous in terms of content (I think I clocked up about 55 hours in total, I'd hunted down 95% of the co...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

whining about dog turds, God, this. Like, I get it, nobody wants to have to pick up excrement that has nothing to do with them, and having someone else's pet use their garden as a toilet is frustrating. But just what in the hell do they think they're going to achieve by posting photos of it?! Do th...

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

Perhaps. If I went outside and heard choral Latin, I'd maybe understand, but honestly I just think it's cute. I don't know why some people have such a problem with rats when they're clearly just existing.

Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

Local facebook groups are a blessing and a massive curse. I live on an estate that borders farmland, and this evening one of the residents posted this image: https://i.imgur.com/KfhnlUh.png There's been talk of phoning the council on Monday to request pest-control deal with it. Just what the hell ar...

Re: I Just Watched (Films)

Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse This is, unquestionably, the best looking film I've ever seen, and the only film that comes close is its predecessor. It's 2hr20min long, and by my reckoning that's 201,000 frames of absolutely beautiful concept art. It's staggeringly good looking; there's no amoun...

I'm surprised he can hold onto that thing without suffering third degree burns.

Ehh, I think if the goal of the article is to get a layman interested in particle physics, then dressing it up in a flowery analogy is probably not the worst idea they could have had. Anyone who isn't already aware of the concept of dark matter and dark energy is going to have zero interest in this...
