    Formula One - 2020

    It's a bit frustrating to have the results of a race decided because a driver did a test start in the wrong position. There are occasions when a simple reprimand is the right way to go. Akin to a referree in football tells a player their tackle was on the line instead of giving them a straight yellow/red.
  2. Do they? Surely everyone agrees the naming is massively confusing. I understand in terms of power it goes: Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X Xbox Series S Xbox Series X It is the replication on the S and X designators on the new console that makes it confusing. They would have been better off with something like this: Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X Xbox Series A Xbox Series B And then future iterations of the Series console could have continued that system.
  3. All Access was always going to be a much better arrangement once the consoles are able to be freely purchased. I always thought trying to run this scheme at the same time as regular pre-orders was a fool's errand. Perhaps they should have blocked off a section of the allocation for All Access orders and opened them up on a different day.
  4. I loved the first one and defo on board for the second one but, yeah, the title is probably the weakest part of the whole thing. The Magazine is really well written and definitely appeals to adult Nintendo fans but the title is pretty groan worthy and just makes me want to brush my teeth....
  5. I agree. Netflix shows like House of Cards are still released on DVD and can be digitally purchased on Amazon. MS, like a lot of the entertainment industry, see subscription as the future and much less about hardware. Disney don't care if you watch their movies through the cinema, on DVD or through streaming as long as you are watching their movies although out of all of them Disney would probably prefer for you to sign up to Disney+ and make you a consistent customer for life. I can see MS being the same. They'd prefer you to subscribe to Game Pass, but if that is not an option c
  6. Definitely. I'm still shocked that this never saw the light of day on any re-release. I was going to say Port but F-Zero X has never really been ported has it? We've had virtual console releases and that's it?
  7. Amazing game. Would be well up for a remaster. Not sure it will have aged particularly well if it is just released again without any work being done to it.
  8. I'm also really enjoying sunshine but it is a bloody difficult game as someone else said. Honestly the difficulty level of the early Shines is so much more difficult than that of Mario 'win a race against a turtle' 64. Its like they carried on the difficulty from the end of 64 rather than resetting.
  9. Agreed. It being properly portable for the first time just adds to the feelings. I'm really enjoying both this and Sunshine on the lite, not tried Galaxy yet. Sunshine is also lovely. Technically it is dodgy as fuck but those feelings you get with the music and holiday feel are unparalleled.
  10. His political views aside, I always really rated Dean Cain as Clark and, to a lesser extent, Superman. Its a pity about his views as I'm sure they cost him a cameo in Crisis.
  11. If you're digitally minded, and for this title why not, I find the Nintendo game vouchers to work out fairly cost effective. I think per voucher for two games it is £84 which brings each digital game down to £42.
  12. I'm sure it has been mentioned, by any recommendations for a cheap, broadly portable, controller that will connect to my android phone to work with this?

    I'm not convinced it wasn't approved. I think he had it on pre-race and it is not just something he could carry around in his car - someone had to bring it to him. I think Mercedes will be broadly relaxed about it really. As a Company when they want to disassociate they can just say it is Lewis views but when they want to associate they can point to their association with Lewis. From a PR point of view it is a tenable position for a Company to hold.

    Reduced the lead to Bottas, ironically the actual lead remains the same since Bottas just replaces Verstapoen as being 47 points behind.

    By my calculations, Hamilton maintains the same gap in points to second place, just with it being Bottas now rather than Hamilton. Really shows that everyone will have an off race by time to time but by design or luck, Hamilton's challengers often fail to capitiaise on Hamilton's rare poor results.

    Great race. I'm a Hamilton fan but decent to see some different podoum results! Hamilton's charge through the field really shows why he's in a different class from Bottas.
  17. I read it that the physical release was limited but that it would be permanently availible to purchase on the eShop.
  18. Well, I do try to understand the story which is being told. In this day and age, perhaps this is classed as overthinking the movie. Should just be enjoying the noises and explosions.
  19. The story/idea has the potential to be excellent and interesting. The way it is presented to the viewer is atrocious. It doesn't have to be this way. The Matrix made an interesting concept clear and concise. This makes an interesting concept baffling and confusing.
  20. I've not played either but believe I have purchased Division 2 previously and it is sitting in the pile of shame. This being the case, would you suggest I start with the first game or go straight to the second game?
  21. Yes, definitely needs a second viewer to work it all out. Just not sure it grabbed be enough to convince me to give it a second viewing though. I'm probably too old and too casual for Nolan these days but whilst I'm happy to pay attention to a movie, it's story should be told in a way that I can pretty much grasp it on first viewing. Ironically, I think the dialogue and story probably were there in the edit to explain everything, it is just I couldn't hear half of it over the soundtrack.
