  1. No, not better. (For me...) There was more money and that lead to bigger things. But I think the original benefited from a (not quite) shoestring budget (I mean, 58 million... fuck me... I'll take a tenth of that and give half away.). It was a tight film. Luckily the writers, directors, and producers didn't let that money go straight to their heads. It was a bigger film, less tight, but it delivered. Like I said, not better. Not worse. More of it. And all of it good.
  2. Quick Deadpool 2 review. It's more Deadpool. This isn't a bad thing. It's neither better, nor worse. It's just... more. And I like it when it's just more when the first one was already enjoyable. (I leave it to you to decide whether the original was good or bad.)
  3. You weren't the first American I spoke to who said that about the Dutch entry. Which makes sense, because it's a very American song. Naturally you'd take a liking to it. (Unless you're not American. In which case... forget I said anything!) Too bad the rest of Europe doesn't agree with you Americans. I'm going to suggest that, next time, we send in my favourite band. Rapalje. They can't do much worse than we have this year!
  4. Well, manure IS a good fertiliser. While Flowerchild was being... well, a child about the addition of wolves, in these games it's at least grounded in some realism.
  5. Finally capable of giving a decent enough first impression of My Time at Portia: It's GregTech: The Game, at least for the initial part. For example, a commission (basically a quest) asked me to try out a Small Planter. But I needed to make it myself first. Sure, let's see what I need to make a small planter. 3 Wooden boards, 2 soil, 2 animal feces. Sure! Can do! Soil is from mining, which I've done. I have soil. Feces spawns where animals roam. Makes sense. I have poop. Wooden boards... okay, I have wood from chopping a tree. How do I turn it into boards. I need a Civil Cutter machine. How do I get a civil cutter? I need 2 copper blades, and 5 stone bricks. Okay! What do I need to make copper blades and stone brick? Copper blades, I need copper ingots. Copper ingots I need a furnace and copper ore. Stone bricks, I just need a furnace and stone. Now, how do I turn the copper ingots into blades? I need a Civil Grinder. What do I need for a civil grinder? Well... I'll stop here. For the first bit, a lot of it seems to be getting parts to make machines, so you can make parts so you can make machines so you can make parts so you can make what you need to fulfil a quest requirement. Of course, as soon as you've crossed that hump, you should only need fuel to continue operating the machinery, but if you can't stand that initial machinery grind in modded Minecraft (not necessarily GregTech specifically) you may get a bit frustrated with MTaP. THAT SAID, the game is fun enough to play. I don't regret buying it at all.
  6. I'm not a huge fan of LEGO's Brickheadz. They're a bit too Funko POP for me, and I really don't like Funko POP. But the "Go Brick Me" set in the Brickheadz line tickled a fancy. So... hello! Here's me!
  7. Now, it's been ages since I've played Hexit, so I don't know if this applies, but for cleaver and hammer you'll need a Tool Forge.
  8. From what I understand, Snail actually owns the ARK developer. I'm not entirely on the up-and-up on how it all fits together, though.
  9. I still drop by occasionally. But like Kocken, I don't tend to have much to mention. As for Beyond Skyrim, they already have one module out. Bruma. It's part of the larger Cyrodiil module, I believe. Haven't really tried it out yet, but from a quick run around it looks very high quality.
  10. This is a PEBKAC issue. 1) If you saved the downloaded file, you wouldn't need to download it again. The "installer" is the launcher. 2) Somehow you managed to uninstall your 64 bit Java and installed 32 bit. Actually 2) Are you still on the same computer? No, seriously. Are you? All your issues seem to stem from not being on the same computer as the first time. That's actually a horrible thing, because Minecraft is incredibly bad at using RAM. The more RAM you allocate, the more RAM Minecraft can use, the more RAM it needs to clean... which Minecraft is bad at. This mean you're going to lag to shit.
  11. Hi, welcome to the forums. If you would like help, DON'T DUMP A FUCKING HUGE WALL OF TEXT IN MY FACE. That promptly gets ignored. I am, however, very happy you managed to solve your own problem.
  12. That's a story and a half! And you'll probably want to post this in the correct sub-section of the forums to get help. And if you DO, please post all the information people might need. I believe there's a guide in the correct sub-forum.
  13. I own 419 games. (Majority from big sales, though. Don't worry. I don't live in a cardboard box.) I've given up questioning "why" at this point. I suggest others don't even start. And I will.
  14. I bought Staxel, and it feels... yeah. My initial thought was Minecraft, but Cube World is probably more apt. Cube World meets Stardew Valley. It feels pretty solid. And looking at My Time at Portia through Many A True Nerd now, and it looks pretty neat as well. May pick that up just as I did Staxel.
  15. Yeah, until Dan (Nerd³) played this, I'd never heard of it either. Hell, even Dan himself said this came out of nowhere. But it's... it's what happens when you put a superhero game inside No Man's Sky, and make it better (? Subjective). It's pretty crazy. EDIT: To illustrate what I mean, the following link has me looking at an alien star, while I'm standing infront of a crater I made by blasting the soil. https://imgur.com/1hUGKFE The following link has me looking at the next mission (the blue spark), which is in the Sol system. Which is an entire galaxy away. https://imgur.com/EQwrJes Yes. I'm on an alien planet in a different galaxy. Yes. WHY HAVEN'T YOU BOUGHT THIS YET!?
  16. I'm just gonna leave this video here. I expect you'll agree that you should buy it immediately.
  17. You know that button you clicked to install the modpack? Have another look at it. You'll find it won't say "install" any longer. Click that.
  18. You misnamed your modpack.jar. Fix that, and the pack runs. (Presumably. I get to the main menu without issues, and the mods appear to have loaded in fine. I haven't tried to start a new world.)
  19. Then delete any copy of 32 bit Java you may have installed. That's the sole reason I can think of.
  20. Right, so I've got the game going, and it's complaining about these being for the wrong version of Minecraft. That seems like a big issue. Removing them brings me back to the launcher, however, with a crashlog complaining about DaVinci's Vessels. EDIT: Replace the mods mentioned in the screenshot with the right version, or remove them. Then, go into the "Main" config of "Moving World" and change "B:"Allow other mods to add to the whitelist/blacklist? NOTE: Turn off if you want to remove the default blacklist/whitelist"=true" to "false". That allows me to start the game to the main menu. EDIT 2: Electric Boogaloo: Huh. Stuck on loading the world. Interesting. It's not crashing, but it appears to just... not want to load. EDIT 3: Edit Hard With A Vengeance: Removing the LiteLoader jar from the installation fixed the loading issue. I can't predict what kind of issues this might give, but I'm in a world right now, and it's playable.
  21. So, what was wrong then? Wrong mod version? Incompatible with another mod? Forgot a dependency? I'm curious, since I couldn't find it easily. (Not that I have much expertise, mind...)
