Thanks Rep, bought online. I can breathe now!

Uhh I just got a text that my click and collect order from this morning is ready. I'm skeptical since my store said it had two in stock but they couldn't find them anywhere. Hopefully they don't text until the click and collect counter actually has the game in hand...

So are midnight launches ever worth it?

I went to the Wii U one at Charlestown up here in Newcastle. I had thought, "Yeah, this will be rad, there will be some weird party vibe with other hyped up fans! Playable Wii U and free stuff!".

I arrived around 10:30pm like the dingus I was to find no one there, and the most bored EB games staff ever who had stayed back to open a store with absolute zero fanfare. Once 11:30pm came around there was a dozen people standing around making the smallest of small talk.

I only live 5 minutes away from my local EB Games now, so I'm probably still goooooooing to go because I'm an ultra dingus, but strewth - zero hype.

Pretty much, I considered going to one for the switch becuase I have a 7am flight on release day so I won't be able to pick one up from my local store. Ended up placing a pre-order at EB Hobart so I'll pick it up from there once I land.

Went to IGN/PSau's preview event for Horizon: Zero Dawn this evening. Game presents and plays really well, but there was a pretty strict demo area in effect which got a bit tedious.

Australian born Joel Eschler, Senior Producer at Guerrilla, was present for a presentation and Q&A session which was enlightening and succeeded in humanizing the game.

Refreshments aplenty, and even in-house archery to keep your adrenaline pumping for fear of death!

Great night out! 7.8/10

Positives:
- Did not die by arrow.

Negatives:
- Did not win any prizes, pre-order cancelled.

since at least 80% of you guys are IT guys, what do I do to get rid of UpdateAdmin?

I needed a thing to convert wav files to OGG files and looked at LameXP to do conversions and I ended up with this shit ad malware on my bootcamp partition. When I go to control panel/Programs and Features on Win 10 to uninstall, I get a "Do you want to allow this program control of your computer" dialogue.

what's the safest way to get rid of this fucker?

also, there are two text files in an asian language font suddenly on my Quick Access bar, apaprently on my desktop. How to nuke these as well?

Where are you based? I'm pretty sure the Target supply office is in Sydney, so if it's a Syd. store then that'd explain it. However I'm in Melbourne so I guess it's going to take a little while.

There's at least a couple of copies of Yakuza 0 at Target Wollongong if that's useful to anyone. Plus TLG for $40 which is a pretty good price I reckon.

Thinking of biting the bullet on the PS4 Pro. EB has it for for normal price but you get For Honor Deluxe Edition with it. Gamesmen has it for 498 if you can pick it up locally but postage is like $16-$18.

I've always used Spybot to get rid of malware like that (free version does the job)
https://www.safer-networking.org/
- Install it.
- Run a scan and see if it picks up the one you have
- Also go through the startup section, and remove any registry entries for the malware scripted to start on bootup

nuke from orbit sounds good. It's only got a few steam installs and SVN stuff, both of which can be restored easily enough (everything of importance is done on the Mac partition). The malware stuff kept being detected quarantined and deleted, then I couldn't sign back in. fuck that.

Yeah, I just don't understand. Is it just to spite fans who've complained so vehemently, or is it Event burning the distributor for not having their shit together in the first place?

Either way, extremely disappointing. Would be a bit shit if it dropped on Blu-ray before cinemas.

I expect the trinity will be $79 and under but likely we get $69 or less from someone, depends how early Big W show their hand.

If you like Ghibli films, definitely the Studio Ghibli museum. It's a bit out of the way and is a whole day pretty much, but it's worth it if you're a fan. You'll need to book with a local company pretty much now if you want to go - check the website.

Akihabara ain't what it used to be, but if you've never been before it's still a good place if you're into otaku stuff. Sensoji Shrine and Nakamise St aren't far from Akiba either so both can be done together.

Takeshita St in Harajuku ain't what it once was either but still good, and the Meiji Shrine is nearby so both can be seen together.

Nikko is a full day trip but if you want historical things, good (and sometimes overwhelming - IIRC there's a Japanese saying that's something like "don't say impressive until you've seen Nikko"). Closer day trips are Kamakura, or Kawagoe. I personally preferred Kawagoe to Kamakura. Not sure if you want to do a day trip though.

If you're into beer I can help further. I'm sure others will have some good ideas.

Awesome, thanks. Looks like the Ghibli museum is already sold out for the next 4 months! I think we'll definitely have a wander around Akihabara and Harajuku, the shrines sound good too.

Nikko was nice but not as memorable as Nara was for us. The deer just wandering around lend the place a unique atmosphere.

Go to Harajuku and do some shopping - you won't ever see clothiers and variety like that again. If you go to Akiba, maybe head to a maid cafe. It's a trip.
