    So cold here I don't see em! Freezing to f*cking death :x too
  • HunterWed Jul 25, 2018 4:15 am
    Impossible, it's summer time. No such thing as heimospheres.
  • XelionsMon Aug 13, 2018 6:31 pm
    I declare a sphere war! Mark my words the South will one day be recognised.
  • HunterWed Aug 22, 2018 1:21 am
    Army not found! They be too busy watching the next reality TV show.

  • HunterFri Sep 14, 2018 12:36 pm
    Hippo I been playing D3 co-op. It's like old times, but with better hardware. We did it what.. 10-15 years ago? Too bad Overload doesn't have co-op..
  • HippoTue Sep 25, 2018 5:15 am
    That was truly like forever ago. my internet was deplorable then
  • HunterTue Oct 16, 2018 7:53 pm
    With the new Descent game around the corner, maybe we could play some co-op again like old times. I have no idea if the game will be any good (not looking promising) but it does support co-op
  • HippoSat Nov 03, 2018 11:24 pm
  • HunterSun Nov 04, 2018 11:42 am
    Yeah.. it's coming out this fall. It was originally the Descent Underground project, but they went dark for a year and teamed up with Little Orbit. They seem to be going with a reboot of Descent instead of a prequel
  • HunterSun Nov 04, 2018 11:43 am
    Although it probably won't be as good as OVERLOAD (have you played it?), it will have co-op, which OL does not
  • HunterTue Nov 13, 2018 6:15 pm
    Ah, looks like it was pushed back to early 2019
  • HunterWed Dec 19, 2018 11:38 am
    Holiday season! Everyone be like, at home and playing games that are 20 years old which I exclusively play. Fantastic!
  • XelionsWed Dec 26, 2018 12:01 pm
    Played some Sherlock Holmes card game with family. Was fun :nod: Think I'll have a shot at some descent over the next week or two and crack out a joystick!
  • HunterFri Dec 28, 2018 3:52 am
    Cool! Which Descent?
  • HunterFri Dec 28, 2018 3:53 am
    I'm always up for a game of co-op ;)
  • HunterTue Jan 01, 2019 12:30 am
    Happy New Year! :smilecolros:
  • XelionsFri Jan 04, 2019 12:50 pm
    Don't know, but it might be delayed now. Started playing Starlink... game is crazy :shock: When I'm on it I'll let you know.
  • XelionsFri Jan 04, 2019 12:52 pm
    Trippy. Good New Year to All :nod:
  • HunterFri Jan 04, 2019 1:21 pm
    If you want trippy try watching some Bjork
  • HunterSat Feb 02, 2019 1:43 pm
    Currently reading The Long Night of Centauri Prime.. now if I can get my hands on the other two somehow.
  • XelionsSat Feb 02, 2019 2:16 pm
    I've only got 2 of the 3 I believe and haven't read them yet. I had trouble trying to get Book 3 I think. Had a similar problem way back with 'The Passing of the Techno-Mages' trilogy but eventually got a copy off the author :) but I never got around to finishing that series. Let me know if it's as good if not better than the Bester trilogy.
  • HunterSat Feb 02, 2019 2:18 pm
    The author? How'd you swing that? Said author just has spare copies laying around?
  • XelionsMon Feb 04, 2019 6:46 am
    Yeah. I reached out. I've still got the emails to the author.. lol. It cost me some pennies but the gesture was nice. Authors generally have spare copies of book(s) they publish... at least in my experience thats what I've found :nod:
  • HunterMon Feb 04, 2019 7:05 am
    That's nice. I've often wondered what the success rate would be for trawling various charity shops in the UK for B5 books (or any decent genre finds).
  • XelionsMon Feb 04, 2019 7:14 am
    I'd have to say better than here in Oz where I'm at. I just trawl online. Ebay and the various book retailers whether it be new or used tend to have mostly anything.
  • HunterMon Feb 04, 2019 11:47 am
    The problem with the B5 books is the extortinate prices on the trilogy series. One of the books is always about $50 or something ridiculous.
  • HunterSat Feb 16, 2019 6:02 am
    Well I finished The Fallen (as per your recommendation). I'm sorry to say, but you probably have rose tinted glasses because so many things were broken - the game felt more like an unfinished BETA tbh. I'll describe in more detail when I post it next week! :)
  • XelionsThu Feb 21, 2019 12:58 pm
    Extortionate prices on hard to get books isn't going away anytime soon.
  • XelionsThu Feb 21, 2019 1:02 pm
    I played the game straight through and would have loved to have played it in full HD. Nothing was broken for me. I think it was on XP and maybe 7. I thought it was a polished game.
  • HunterFri Feb 22, 2019 1:10 am
    Oh there were definitely bugs. There was a game breaking bug in the Kira playthrough, which I'll show in the out-take. TBH I would have preferred a first person game. 3rd person is really hard to get right and few games pull it off IMO.
  • XelionsSun Mar 17, 2019 11:43 am
    I'll check it out when I got some free time :) Was busy with moving recently and it was an epic fail! And so I didn't move :shock: I also upgraded my line from ADSL2+ (yes I'm living in the 90s and its not a good thing) to fibre to a POINT! Yay! I can now upload stuff 100x faster.
  • HunterTue Mar 19, 2019 7:14 am
    Great to hear! I hope we'll be seeing more of you :) Interested in hearing why moving failed.. lol
  • XelionsMon Mar 25, 2019 8:22 am
    The colder weather is fast approaching so I will be online more. Lets just say that renting sux and leave it at that otherwise I'll have to vindicate myself later on.
  • HunterSat Mar 30, 2019 12:20 pm
    The first insect of the year appeared in my bathroom. It's the one thing I love about the cold months.. no bugs!
  • XelionsThu Apr 04, 2019 5:22 pm
    Humidity :roll: My bathroom ceiling is covered in midges thanks to inadequate ventilation over the last season. More work. Yay :(
  • HunterSun Apr 07, 2019 7:25 am
    Kara lurking pretty hard there ;)
  • HunterWed Apr 10, 2019 7:57 am
    I just purchased the remaining Legions of Fire books and SG Atlantis Legacy series. Hoping to finish everything this year!
  • XelionsWed Apr 10, 2019 2:19 pm
    I noticed that with Kara too :nod:
  • XelionsWed Apr 10, 2019 2:22 pm
    Do let me know how good Legions of Fire are. Might have to get stuck into it! I loved the Emperor Cartagia episodes. Hopefully his in the books.
  • HunterThu Apr 11, 2019 3:21 am
    Unlikely since Legions of Fire is set between late Season 5 and A Call to Arms! But there is plenty of Centauri madmen to go around.
  • HunterThu Apr 11, 2019 2:13 pm
    Ooo, a B5 remaster is floating around usenet. Now just to figure out how to get it.. (Edit: Got it! It's a bit plastic looking but some great work nonetheless)
  • XelionsTue Apr 23, 2019 9:57 am
    I looked into that remaster. It's an upscale of sorts right?
  • HunterTue Apr 23, 2019 11:08 am
    Yes, some digital enhcancements . There is a definite improvement in the character scenes, and somehow even the CGI looks sharper.
  • XelionsSat May 25, 2019 3:05 pm
    I just went through a whole lot of threads that I thought there were replies to... spammers right?
  • HunterSun May 26, 2019 7:11 am
    Yes, deleted now
  • XelionsSun Jun 02, 2019 3:43 pm
    Something of possible interest with B5 - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/13 ... on-project
  • HunterMon Jun 03, 2019 6:06 pm
    Yeah I saw that. I've ummed and ahhed over backing it. Money is always an issue for me
  • XelionsWed Jun 05, 2019 8:01 am
    I might look at 10% of whats published in that book and I already invested in the [email protected] online.
  • HunterWed Jun 05, 2019 4:30 pm
    I'd gladly invest, I'm just always a bit strapped for cash, and when I do get disposal income it usually goes on things I've wanted for a while.
