    As Arseblog noted a while back, seems with we had 3 egotists with Ivan, Raul and Sven who would cancel each other's power out and keep the foundation strong. Once one goes, the whole thing collapses. Nice to see it's still an old boys club even when you bring in completely new people. Not sure why Raul thinks we'll have the money to pursue his "connections" when the coach was saying we could only loan. Unless...

    Strong rumours abound that Sven's off. 2/3 of the board that appointed Emery gone within 6 months. I have a feeling that we might be in a pickle right now.

    Return of the Obra Dinn

    I'm gone back and forth over that complaint. Beyond probably a technical level whereby the vignette has to load from a specific place because the assets are already in, I think it means you pay more attention since it's a bit more deliberate to open each one up. If I had to trek across the ship, once I'd arrived I was more likely to make sure I absolutely knew what I was seeing and wrung every bit of information out of it. Still it's probably mostly technical.

    Hail, Brothers. The Positivity Club always welcomes new additions to the flock (even when they should have listened to advice and joined months ago!)

    Elmo basically loves RDR2 because it's a poker game with cutscenes! Think Mat did a good job of critiquing the game.

    Wrestling PPV Predictions

    I can't believe either Jinder Mahal or R-Truth is going to be the last entrant in the men's Royal Rumble.

    Consolevania's back...

    Absolutely died at "Team Cuck *click*" There's something so comforting about Consolevania. I don't know what it necessarily is, that magic ingredient. Maybe because it's basically the same as it was 14 years ago but without actually copying the old stuff at all. I think Rab and Ryan being pals again is part of it too. And that's it's always a celebration of this silly hobby.

    The Outer Worlds | Obsidian 2019

    Only finished New Vegas a couple of weeks ago at the insistence of our own @Siri so I'll now pretend I've always been a fan and have been waiting for 10 years for this. Love the idea of doubling down on what you're crap at to give you boosts elsewhere.

    Holding out with an ACL rupture. Going to be an even trickier festive period now.

    Feels like we'd have lost that last season to a Fellaini header in the 92nd minute of a dodgy free kick so it's something.

    Return of the Obra Dinn

    Still no word on a console release but, if you start playing it on Mac, you will feel compelled to finish it. I started playing it on Saturday evening and woke up early on Sunday to finish it. Since then I've become properly obsessed with the way this game made me think. An actual, logical detective game. The big shame is that, because it's a solvable puzzle, there really is nothing to make me go through it again. I'd love for a whole series to follow suit but that might be asking too much of one man. I've had to settle for reading Lucas Pope's development diaries on Tigsource to get more out of it.

    I missed the first half because I was watching the better Arsenal in the WSL. Good to win and it will take time and we had the same manager for 22 years and the back half of the team hasn't changed but... I was hoping it would all be a little clearer by mid-November.

    Played and finished this for the very first time over the weekend. I knew about the pacifist run being possible so did that and have it set up for true pacifist tonight but didn't know anything else about the game. Absolutely loved so much of it with the writing clearly the standout. Yet the most affecting thing came within the first 20 minutes or so, when you fight the nominal first boss. As mentioned, I was doing a pacifist run but the "rules" for pacifism I'd learned from the regular enemies didn't seem to work so I assumed this was a fight I had to try and win through combat (which, itself, ironically meant I found a later boss ridiculously difficult because I thought I'd learned the actual rules of pacifism). Do the awful deed, completely hate it, look up whether it's possible to avoid it, find out how, reload my save and feel the smug hero. Karma +1. Toriel will remember that. And then I go through the door and Flowey basically says "I know what you did" and an unexpected feeling of dread quickly spreads through me. All bets were off. A game that knows it's a game but, moreover, knows what you will do because you do it in every game. Amazing.
