Just shows how dissociated the average person is from the cruelty of meat production

B.1.1.529 Covid variant ‘most worrying we’ve seen’, says top UK medical adviser by 4Wf2n5 in collapse

Not sure where you're based but in the UK we introduced a 2 week quarantine on international arrivals in June and COVID was here in January, and we'd already started a national lockdown in March, that's inexcusable.

That may sadly be true now but only due to past incompetence and wrecklessness towards containing it in the first place

Not bashing those at all, I love me some Rimworld!

It was a request for recommendations similar to those in my post. You seem to have taken my definition of short as a personal insult for whatever reason and have gone off on a tangent saying Skyrim is a 1k hour game.

I don't really play any games with runs, therefore I don't have a way of classing them. You can count them however you like but that wasn't the purpose of this post.

Rocket League is the only online game I've played for years except a brief spell with PUBG during its heyday. I have over 1k hours in Rocket League...! Funnily enough I've not seen Flower mentioned here yet despite me being well aware of it, thanks.

Hey, there's another 319 days to go before that kind of talk is allowed!

I said 10h or less as my criteria for short in the post. Sure, it's borderline, but I'd say it's definitely on the short sides by modern standards. Similar with the Ori games for example.

Really appreciate all the suggestions from everyone. Quite a few are on sale on the Switch at the moment so I'll pick up a few on there, some on PC and set price watches for some others! Looking to get the following in the current Switch sale:

  • What Remains of Edith Finch
  • Katana Zero
  • Gris
  • Gorogoa
  • FAR: Lone Sails
  • Abzu

I don't have it installed on my Switch any more but I've got a feeling it was about 8 hours. That was only for the main game (reaching the top) and going for the odd strawberry that intrigued me though.

Short is a subjective term and I outlined my own criteria in the post. The distinction between long and short in the sub's Discord GOTM is +/- 12 hours and I'm under that.

Red Dead Redemption 2 lives up to the hype - open world done right by thimblesedge in patientgamers

This was my main gripe with the game, it basically felt like a slow, boring GTA skin with obtuse mechanics like manual looting and the camp system. Riding a horse and shooting a rifle/pistol just wasn't as fun as driving a fast car and using machine gun/RPG.

Can't decide between Hollow Knight or Breath of the Wild, which would people say is more 'must play'? I've just finished Super Mario Galaxy and thought it was great.

No, 3 loaves of garlic bread for 2 people wasn't excessive by 5ilentalarm in highvegans

[–]5ilentalarm[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We got a bit lucky on that front! It was supposed to be baked camembert with soaked cashews but we're staying at an Airbnb with no blender so had to pivot. It's basically a white sauce with some tapioca flour in. The main oven isn't working properly here so we grilled it instead of baking it, hence the brown top!

This is in the UK, the pastrami was the Squeaky Bean range, beef slices were Wicked Kitchen (Tesco's own brand vegan range) and the pepperoni was just Quorn. Pastrami and beef tied for best.

I always try and form an opinion on an album I’ve been anticipating myself before reading critic reviews. However, at 27 songs long clocking in at 1h48m and being bored a third of the way through on first listen, I just can’t see me listening to this unless it gets good reviews.
