Every Thursday, Watching Telly


Hello World

Boy, I've watched a load of stuff on Paramount Plus, this week.
Well, it felt like a load. In fact it was only 3 episodes of Strange New Worlds, 3 episodes of Halo and .. is it 9 episodes of Star Trek Prodigy? Can't remember how many there were.

Prodigy was much more Trek than I expected it to be. I mean, sure it's a kids show, but it's also a proper Trek, as opposed to Lower Decks which is first and foremost a comedy/cartoon.

Not a bad little show, if I'm honest.
Have you signed up for the 178th TV Subscription service?
What are your thoughts?



What We Did

Have you done anything during June?
I sure as hell haven't!
But if you have done something interesting, be sure to let us know in the What We Did thread for this month.

Language Comparison Code

JProfitt posts a version of the Comparison Code written using AGK.
I should probably look into ways I can present this in a functional/searchable way.


All New Playstation Plus

TheRevillsGames digs into the new Playstation Plus subscription tiers, and finds a nice horror/story based game to play.
Have you found any fun games in the new bundles?
Let us know!

Portal Returns!

Portal 1 and 2 are now available on the Nintendo Switch
Jay gave the first one a go, and got as far as he could before one of the levels makes you create a portal in one place, before running past the barrier and quickly spawning two portals to make the plasma ball hit it's goal.
I think it's around test chamber 12 or so.
Running, pointing, spinning, all with thumbtacks that aren't nearly precise/quick enough, and a growing wave of motion sickness... It didn't really work out all that well.
That's a shame..
But Jay will continue to play, and is looking forward to a nice play session as a reward for having written this week's newsletter.

.. Oh, yeah, and the rest of the Nintendo Direct turned out not to be the one we wanted.
Still no Goldeneye
Still no Zelda : BOTW2
Still no Pikmin 4


Goto Ableton

Jay gives up with the lack of interesting updates from Korg Gadget, and decides it's time to make the switch over to Ableton.
It's certainly been a tough process, jumping from something he's been using for the past 8 years.
Have you used Ableton?
If you've any random tips and tricks, let us know in the thread.


I tried my best to find interesting short videos that weren't "YouTube Short" videos in stupid portrait mode.
Why YouTube?

Here's the only two decent vids I found.
