Icefiretn First off, congrats on first place in teams and second place in individual, well deserved for sure!

Good to see Action Henk up there, such a great game!

Agree on Aborigenus, just not a good game.

I still need to finish the last 8 or so episodes of Mr Robot - such an interesting show.

I’m a big Stephen King fan as well - loved The Stand and The Talisman, still need to read the Dark Tower series.

Great lists and congrats again!

JimbotUK Love Rami Malek as an actor, so intense. Very clever show, maybe a bit weak around season 2 but I thought the last season was amazing.

I read Firestarter when I was around 11 or 12 and have been hooked ever since. Dark Tower is well worth reading if you are a fan as it is kinda the centrepiece that links a lot of his other books. It’s really cool to notice the connections and then look up afterwards stuff you missed. Fair to say the series goes off the rails a bit in the last two books though. With books 1-5 being top top tier.

I think they are doing a new tv show for the stand so that could be interesting to check out.

Mental Knight 5 Didn't read, no mentions of me. What would you say to someone who liked the other Trials games, enjoys Hard but can't pull off Extreme, and avoided Trials Rising because the achievements seemed too multiplayer-centric?

Mental Knight 5 Caretaker is definitely my least favorite quick completion ever, and maybe one of BiLLz' worst guides. laugh I'll have to check out Descenders, I appraised it as taking (me) too long to get (me) enough score out of it. But looked damn unique. I may wait for a sale, though. Got too many Game Pass messes to clean up already.

Mental Knight 5 Had to wait over an hour for it to go on sale. It was torture.

Icefiretn I think my first Stephen King book was Tommyknockers at about the same age - that book was messed up lol, but definitely got me hooked.

JimbotUK @Mental Knight 5 If you enjoyed the previous Trials games you should be right at home with Rising. There is a ton of content in this one so there is plenty of gameplay to be had on the easy/medium/hard tracks. As with other Trials games though the back end achievements require half decent riding on the extreme tracks. I think this is the best Trials for newer players as there is a steady progression through the difficulties and you have to put in quite some time to even be given the extreme tracks.

The new university of trials feature does a good job of giving you tutorial tracks and explanations to prepare you with the throttle control & bunny hopping etc needed for hards & extremes. Not sure what you mean with the multiplayer achievements, there is one achievement with the tandem bike which is intended for coop play but can be done solo. Other than that it's all single player I think.

@Icefire Haha I wasn't a fan of Tommyknockers but it's definitely a trip lmao
