    What are the best albums of all time?

    Favourite song = too narrow and variable, favourite genre = we saw how that ended. But what do you think are the best albums ever released? I'll start (with a few of the very obvious picks), feel free to comment on them or others. Rumours - Fleetwood Mac (1977) Hugely influential, full of...

    10,000 aliens from aliens vs 10,000 bugs from starship troopers

    Assuming no reproductive caste from either species, xenomorphs for sure. With Queens and whoever reproduces on the bug side it depends on whether facehuggers can implant bugs, and if not whether there's other life around they could implant. It'd be a battle of attrition.

    Western Mechs vs Eastern Mecha

    I think much of the debate is about aesthetics rather than realism, which is personal preference really. With the dawn of consumer VR I really want some Mech piloting games. We're getting a variety of cockpit flight games, but a proper Mechwarrior would be amazeballs.

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 Trailer

    It's just better with a zero article rather than the definite article. It's English, innit. "The" Phantom Pain makes it specific, if you leave it off you have an indefinite reference which is more intriguing as there is more implication that it can be referring to multiple things.
