Daisy Ridley's 'STAR WARS: EPISODE X - A NEW BEGINNING' will begin filming from September 2nd, 2024 in London, UK.
  • I'll be cautiously optimistic. Daisy Ridley deserves a second shot at Rey and hopefully Disney learned something from their mistakes in episodes 7-9.

  • Say what you want about Batman Forever, but these posters slap (1x more in comments)
  • If you think of Batman & Robin as a sequel to the Adam West series, it works great.

  • FromSoftware says Elden Ring's popular Seamless Co-op mod is 'definitely not something we actively oppose,' and may even 'consider ideas like that with our future games'
  • Coop is completely broken without this mod. A friend and I tried to play vanilla ER but 4/5 times the summon would fail, and 5/5 times I'd get invaded immediately.

    Installed the mod and suddenly it all just worked.

  • It's sad to see so many good titles get ruined because of this
  • My favourite part of this movie was that they directly call out WB by making an unnecessary sequel mandate part of the plot.

  • Adobe made a small change to its terms and conditions and that made its users very, very unhappy — scrutinizing data to find illegal content is a risky move
  • Even for personal use, I've tried various alternatives to Photoshop over the years like Gimp and Krita and they just can't compete. Photoshop is just ridiculously powerful, so it sucks even more that the company that owns it is so shitty.

  • You can still save locally even if you're using the Creative Cloud software. I stuck with CS6 for a long time because I hate software subscriptions, but eventually bit the bullet to get access to the new features and a UI that actually scales to my monitor. It's been mostly fine, but I'd still prefer to just own the software I use.

  • Happy Fathers Day? | Resident Evil 8 [6]
  • This game really hates me. I couldn't play it when it came out because it caused too much motion sickness. Then they released the third person camera mode so I paid for the DLC hoping it'd help, but no luck. So now I tried to watch Game Grumps' playthrough and still can't get through an episode without feeling like hurling.

  • Depending on how you count
  • Unlimited ducks? Did they learn nothing from Red Lobster's hubris?

  • Was Michael Jackson guilty?
  • Disregarding all other context, no one should get their version of the truth from a Netflix documentary.

  • ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Showrunner Terry Matalas Tackling Remake of 1980s Sci-Fi Movie ‘Enemy Mine’ (Exclusive)
  • I love Enemy Mine and hated Picard, so I'll just pretend I didn't read this.

  • Katar (dagger)
  • You're telling me Diablo 2 is real life?

  • "Silly me! You know how spacey I can be sometimes."
  • I'm paranoid about this. When a game has a "junk" tab in the inventory with an option at stores to "sell all junk," I know there's going to be a quest to give a generic silver ring or a jade statuette to someone.

  • The men vs. bear saga reaches the inevitable conclusion
  • I think chubby bisexuals are classed as "pandas"

  • The men vs. bear saga reaches the inevitable conclusion
  • I never understood this debate. Of course a woman would feel safer with a large gay man at her side.

  • Thanks, I hate it
  • Frozen yolk hurt.

  • Curious Goat
  • "Now I'm just somebody that you used to know"

  • Poll: How would you rate the Xbox Games Showcase?
  • It was probably the best lineup they've had since the 360 days. Doom, Fable, Perfect Dark and South of Midnight are all the ones on my list.

    Could have done without the huge CoD bookends, though. People in the room said a noticeable number of people started to leave during that part.

  • Mac Glocky - Heart Shaped Box by Nirvana (if it was written by Incubus)

    When I run out of Incubus songs to listen to I've been turning more and more to Mac Glocky. He also does good impressions of Smashing Pumpkins and Chevelle.

    The Naked And Famous - Young Blood (White Sea Remix)

    Yes, I have been watching The Dead Boy Detectives. Why do you ask?

    Fun Lovin' Criminals - Scooby Snacks (1996)


    I just ordered this from the Xbox Design Lab

    I justified the stupid cost to myself because it can also simultaneously pair with my Steam Deck and the paddles will work with all of my old games that I had to use the rear buttons for in the control mappings.


    Can you help me choose a new Mastodon instance?

    I'm currently on, which is great. I have no issues with the users or admin. They're all good people. But I'm more of a casual Trek fan and posting about anything non-Trek-related doesn't seem to be what the other members want to engage with. I like to post about sci fi or horror movies I'm watching, games I'm playing, old TV shows from the '90s and '00s, and other geeky things I'm into; but it's like I'm talking to myself when I do.

    I know there's also the global feed, but that's like spitting into the ocean.

    I've tried to find more of a general media or geek-culture focused instance but have come up dry. Does anyone know of something along those lines?

    PS5 Performance?

    I know a lot of people are having issues with the frame rate, but is that limited to PC? I'm playing on PS5 and it's been very smooth. The only thing I've noticed is NPCs fading into existence when they're right in front of me.

    It could just be that I have low standards.


    Oxventure: Deadlands

    If you're unfamiliar with Oxventure, they're a TTRPG group that spun off from the Outside Xbox channel. They mostly play D&D but occasionally do a one-off or shorter campaign of things like Blades in the Dark or Lasers and Feelings. They make my favourite actual play videos besides Dimension 20's first season of The Unsleeping City.

    This is the full playlist of their Deadlands campaign.


    Hard West 2

    Here's my contribution. If you enjoy games like XCOM and Shadow Tactics you'll probably like Hard West 2. Everyone says to skip the first game and the story of the sequel doesn't follow from it anyway so it's a fine starting point.


    Dobie Gray - Drift Away

    We used to sing along to this in my friend's van all the time.


    "Outcast: A New Beginning" demo

    I just played the demo on PS5 and it's absolutely gorgeous. I really like the original, which also got a shiny remake a few years ago.
