  1. RLM generally aren't the best when it comes to discussing scores. Either they fail to mention them at all or they just seem to lack the insight to say anything interesting. Josh Davis is the only one who seems particularly interested in music generally, so it's perhaps not all that surprising.
  2. Yeah, that really surprised me too. Like you say, Tron isn't her best work, but she's a central figure in early synth scores.
  3. 19/01 - Afterparty (XB1X) - A disappointment after Oxenfree. The same neat little dialogue system is there, and the voice acting is great, but the central characters are unappealing, the game itself is riddled with bugs and there's some rough stuttering between areas. Mostly it just lacked the compelling mystery of Oxenfree, though, and I was bored long before the end. Previous: Ongoing: Persona 5 (PS4), Forza Horizon 4 (XB1X), Sunset Overdrive (XB1X)
  4. I gave up on PC gaming because I found it too tempting to endlessly fiddle with settings and mods. Reckon I spent more time worrying about having the optimal set-up than actually playing the games, so I just went back to consoles.

    No wireless, so they don't work with the flip grip
  6. 14/01 - Untitled Goose Game (XB1X) - It's slight, but my daughter laughed like a loon throughout the whole thing, so it's a winner in my book. Ongoing: Persona 5 (PS4), Afterparty (XB1X), Forza Horizon 4 (XB1X)

    Neil Peart has died.

    This hit me pretty hard. Not only because I love Rush, but because of their integral role they had in the bond I shared with my best friend's father, who passed away last year after a long-fought battle with alcoholism. I knew him my whole life, but it was only when I had to completely cut off my own father in my early teens that he started introducing me to record after record of incredible music, and Rush were the one that hit hardest at the time. I'd hang with my friend after school and when his dad came back from a plastering job we'd put on an album and talk about the perfection of Lifeson's solo on Kid Gloves or whatever. It was a musical education I'm not sure I fully appreciated at the time, but as he reeled off refences to Tangerine Dream, Aphrodite's Child, Wire, he was laying down a musical map that I've been exploring ever since. I'd intended to write more here but this was a post I put off for a few days because I knew it would get me a bit upset, and it has already. I was on the other side of the planet when he died and missed his funeral, which has caused me some delayed grief I think, so for now I'll just say that I'm eternally grateful to both Graham and Neil for everything. Music is the greatest gift you can give someone.
  8. I'm assuming this is the sort of thing you're after.

    Hopefully those DQ Heroes games are getting updates, because the original Japanese releases were a bit rough in terms of frame rate.

    I have this issue somewhere: Should dig it out next time I'm back in the UK.

    Well, that's Game Pass sorted until... 2023 Looking forward to tucking into some of the MS games I've missed this gen, particularly Sea of Thieves and Gears 5. Big thanks to Gerbik, Fry Crayola and anyone else that helped me out earlier.

    Just want to confirm this is the correct course of action: - Buy some of these 12-month Live Gold codes. These EU ones will be fine for a UK account, right? - Enter code, turn off auto renew, then turn back on for an extra month. Repeat as necessary. - When finished, use the 1 quid deal to upgrade everything to ultimate. Is it a quid to upgrade the entire duration of the sub or a quid for each month you want to upgrade? I ended up buying a second hand One S to keep me busy until the Series X appears. It was only sixty quid so couldn't say no, really.
