Re: Most disappointing games?

in Milliways
I know you all are going to shoot me but I HATE all the Dark souls games. They control poorly and simply require a bunch of replay and memorization, terrible gameplay traits. I've tried to play several of these games a few times always thinking I must be missing something and each time I come away …

Re: old movies

You know a lot of crap was made in those days too, we just tend to remember the good stuff. I remember watching a lot of Hitchcock movies but honestly I found a lot of his earlier work stiff and wooden. Gone with the winds? The rope? Citizen Kane? No thanks!

Re: What phone do you use currently?

in Milliways
Galaxy A3 (2017), because it was one of the smaller smartphones. Apart from the navigation and music play function I hardly use/need it, for normal computing funtions and internet it's pretty useless as touchscreens is the singlemost godawful invention after touchpads.
