    Thanks for that, honestly you have put into perspective what I had guessed. I think my issues is time honestly, I probably get some time in the evening and some time over the weekend but none of it is ever guaranteed. I'm interested by your comments on the way in which these games are played and I assume that unless you play an mmo on release date realistically the story is the second priority as people are trying to make their way through it to get to the end to play with the serious players. Hmm food for thought, so thank again

    Appreciate that. I shall probs stick to single player mode really. Dont have any friends who are into gaming so cant play on a specific server like that sooo we shall see. Hopefully in the future there will be some changes but who knows.

    Any MMO fans out there. I watch a lot of MMO style anime's, and what gets me is the friendship's and the overall appreciation that yes everyone is gamer and therefore people are there to have fun. I play a lot of single player RPG's and only therefore a damn good story and content. Yet recently downloaded WOW and just could not hit play, cowardly I know. A while back I started playing GW2, played couple of hours before realising it is just a bunch of people running about with very little or no story or interaction. I just didn't fancy getting started to only get bashed by long time players and the toxicity of some of the forums is less appealing. Maybe I view MMO's as some sort of fairy tale and have built it up in my head of how awesome they are etc. Also whenever somebody suggests multiplayer to me all they want to play is fornite or apex which is my version of boredom … sorry avid fans just not for me. I don't know, any input from people would be greatly appreciate or just general advice. I have played most modern AAA rpg's, currently trying to work my way through DOS'2 definitive edition, which sometimes can be a touch taxing so I don't play it all day every day. As said any input greatly appreciate, cheers!
  4. For me 2020 and start of 2021 hasn't been great. I'm am told constantly that I need to look for positives so yes, I still have my job and I am getting paid, yes, I still have my health although I did pack on some weight but I hopefully will loose that once my job opens back up. For me though the last year I suppose really emphasised that I don't have any real friends, and that actually I don't have all that much direction in my life. You wake up, go to work, come home cook food and then sleep and repeat. Yes over weekends you shove in the things you enjoy (watching anime, driving my car, painting my Warhammer etc) but even still, I spend far too much time in my own head worrying or thinking about these things so it hasn't gone over well. I know it sounds incredibly needy of me, but COVID really didn't do my mental health any favours, and kinda reinforced a lot of the problems I was having before anyway. Sorry that was dumping some c**p onto this thread sorry! SO positive, I manged to get my house ready to sell (even though that has been messy), I work and get paid, I have a partner and a family who have supported me through a lot of this and shout out to them for doing that cause I'm not easy to live with .
  5. Im 32..........i started on Pokémon in the 90's (Pokémon Red on Gameboy for the win), I think in the UK it was on SMTV live? cant quite remember. Then didnt watch any anime for a while until I happed to sit and watch Tales of Earthsea when I was a teenager, really randomly maybe on tv or something and from there I have been watching it since. Just prefer it to alot of other media forms.
  6. I got me my Razer Sneki Sneki gaming chair pillow thingy! Proper comfy and can sit alongside my other Sneki Sneki
  7. am really looking forward to the "new" series for, I hope, all the new merch it will bring!
  8. For me, yes is the answer, sometime I just have to take a step back and watch some normal stuff on tv or netflix etc. It might mean I take longer to get through my list however, it does allow me, I think, to enjoy the anime more. Im not really sure why maybe because I look forward to it. Also on that I am currently watching 7 anime's and reading 2 light novels.......they sometime blur into one so I really have to dial it back a little bit or wait till they have finished and binge the whole series
  9. I ended up going full tilt and grabbed the Samsung Q95T on a black friday deal........fingers crossed. It shall arrive tomorrow so quite pleased. Cheers for the info
  10. Thanks team, I shall look into Samsung in general as I have had around 3 TV's previously with them. I suppose the lure of LG CX is that it has 3 HDMI ports on it but realistically I will be getting the series X first then the PS5 probs 2022 given stock levels etc haha But cheers anyway!
  11. I joined. I shall post when I have finished this round of 5 anime I am currently watching
  12. I was doing it, but given I'm at work most days and don't usually use my PC till weekends I haven't had the client running. Whilst the UK was in full lockdown I just joined (like a sheep) the LTT group because it was easier and I like their content etc.
  13. I join when I can but sadly it is not as often as I would like. I shall remain however as the community is a nice place and everyone has always been decent to anything I have posted or asked. So for me it is still AF for the win!
  14. I know this is not anime related BUT it is sorta gaming related. Everyone seems to recommend the LG CX tv's for the new consoles that have been released because of HDMI 2.1 etc. BUT when I google the LG CX there are a lot of complaints about Burn In issues etc. IS burn in really common? I game maybe 2/3 hours a night during the week and maybe longer at weekends or not at all, depends how busy I am. I dont want to buy a £1200 tv and then it get buggered up because of burn in. Also I dont have the new consoles yet, I shall be getting them next year, but if I am waiting that long for the consoles should I just wait for the 2021 Tv's or is it not worth it etc. Any help advice or thoughts greatly appreciated.
  15. Il finish the first season but I am not sure it shall stay looking for it further down the line if they green light season 2
  16. Just started watching the dub of this, honestly it feels brutally rushed and is throwing characters and plot lines all over the shot. Normally when this happens everything is explained in the light novel and hasn't been put onto screen very well. Is it the same for this one or is the book as scattered as the anime? Any info would be great. I usually buy these light novels on my kindle etc but not sure I want to pay £7 for a maybe....... TIA
  17. He is creepy....but a quality character. I would certainly be interested in his back story but I would for a lot of the captains. I haven't read the manga so just assumed that might all be in there?
  18. I usually buy whatever merch I can get my hands on here in the UK. Personally fav two characters is Ichigo from Bleach which I have a figurine and a soft toy of and Guts from Beserk who I really want a figurine of but they are either really expensive or just hard to get hold of a high quality one. It might not be anime related but I have to shout out to Marcus Fenix love my figurine and he is one of my fav characters,
  19. Anime is the gift that keeps on giving! And it is great to have goals, so keep true to them and you will get there. Anime is the main tv in our house so it is easy however, light novels are a new ish for me, and I am going through all the anime I really enjoyed and reading the source material. Though I am not reading the web novels as it is easier to use my kindle.
  20. Right now I am overly invested in light novels more than Anime, and it is getting kinda hard to keep up with all the different story lines at once. I feel like a god of Anime Universes and they are all under my dominion.......or something? Hmm living in that relm is a good point there are certainly some places I would prefer at the moment, I think that is why reincarnation appeals to me so much!!
  21. Personally I find that watching anime is a way in which I can deal with normal life. Sometimes being able to just sink yourself into a series is the only way to cope. I also find this with light novels as well. However, if I find a really solid series and it ends... I just cant bring myself to start something else almost as if my brain has to deal with the loss of characters in my life. In some respects I think people mourn the loss of well written characters regardless of medium
  22. What is a Pocophone? @Big Boar those drawings are decent! good work!!
  23. Really enjoyed Castlevania for once they made a half decent adaptation of something.
  24. Gave up playing multiplayer due to the general toxic nature, and friends alike. Hopefully things will be moved on for you for the better
  25. Bleach for me is easily in my top 5 anime of all time and Urahara was one of my favorite characters he had some cracking lines and some serious funny bits
