  1. I don't know if this will be controversial, but I've just been to the Latitude Festival, and they closed the thing with Bastille. Which I'd never heard before and turns out to be the blandest, beige-est, most insultingly inoffensive tosh I've heard in years.
  2. I had a McDonalds on Friday since the kids love it and I'm lazy and won't go to two separate fast food places. It just reinforced my view that it's better to pay three times as much for a Five Guys that's actually tasty than save money eating cardboardy bread, tasteless dry meat and limp salad.
  3. The one regret I have about moving house is that I'm no longer a minute's walk away from a Co-op, which means I've had to cut back savagely on my consumption of their salt and vinegar crisps, which are - as any fule kno - the perfect crisp.
  4. I'm in my 40s. I can't see myself ever stopping gaming. I go through periods where I don't play much (I'm in one of those periods now), but it's always because there's something going on that means I find it hard to find the time to do it. Currently I'm working full time, have just got a puppy, just started to watch Westworld with my wife, got into a series of books, got two kids who take up loads of time and the TV... and I very nearly bought Wildermyth last night, and I regularly check PS5 stock (though always too late to buy one, luckily!) My parents are in their early 70s and have both played games for as long as I can remember. My mum got really bad tennis elbow from Guitar Hero 2, and since rinsing Puzzle Quest has migrated to (much worse, if you ask me) match 3 games on her iPad. My dad used to just play flight sims and turn based strategy games on the C64, Amiga and then PC when I was young. He then dipped in and out for years - mostly out as I recall - but since he retired he's got way back into gaming. He's got an Xbox One and in the past month he's finished Control, Mass Effects 1-3 and some Diablo-esque game I can't remember the name of. He keeps asking if he should buy a Series X, but since he doesn't care about frame rate or decent graphics and says load times don't bother him, there's not a great argument for him buying one. But he asks with such regularity that I'm realising he doesn't care about those things I mentioned, but does very much want a new toy, even if it does the same things as the old toy, just better. So I'm probably just going to tell him yes next time he asks.
  5. Yeah, I'm hoping they are still finding their feet a bit. I was hoping they'd immediately somehow pull a Vinnyvania and a "Vinny plays Assassin's Creed" show and a "Brad and Vinny play a Brad and Vinny game like Astroneering" show out, but they haven't yet. Maybe it's not their favourite stuff to do, which would be a shame for me. What I want is to watch one of them playing through a game from start to finish while they all joke around. But it's still early days.
  6. Fear Street 1994 wasn't really my sort of thing. I thought it was dull, pedestrian, lacked any sort of tension or meaningful character work, and at least half an hour too long. But I do like the conceit of the trilogy, so I'll probably watch at least the next one.
  7. Is it available anywhere legit?
  8. It's been mentioned a couple of times earlier in this thread, but I watched Possum last night and thought it was fantastic. Really got under my skin. It's not a traditional horror, but I think if you enjoy films like The Witch or Under The Skin, you might get something out of Possum.
  9. I thought the final five minutes were the worst part! But thanks, it seems like I won't be going out of my way to watch In The Earth. Shame, as I loved A Field In England, Kill List and High Rise.

  11. Gravity Force 2 is utterly incredible.
  12. It doesn't though. I'd never played it until a couple of years ago, and then when I did, I was ever so surprised that this was the game everyone was eulogising. Just going from personal experience, but with nostalgia totally removed from the equation, Goldeneye is pretty shit.
  13. Hmm, I thought The Borderlands was okay, but pretty obvious and telegraphed. Suggests I'd really hate In The Earth. What did you lot who didn't enjoy In The Earth think of The Witch or Midsommar?
  14. No UFO: Enemy Unknown, or Lords of the Realm? For shame, rllmuk.
  15. Come on, you know it will. And you'll listen anyway.
