  1. Tonight on BBC Four at 9pm - The Alex Winter documentary from last year - ZAPPA - and no doubt on the iPlayer afterwards for a bit. It doesn't do a great job at winning new fans, but for us that already there - it's a worthwhile 2 hours. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0010rl8

  3. My quality control got better once I ditched my Rega RP3 with its glass platter and went for the Technics. I swear the glass platter was the problem, a lot of warped records I had aren't really that bad on the Technics I'd say look up your title on Discogs and see if others report the same thing. If they don't get it swapped. If they do, a refund would probably be better if you can't live with it. Vinyl isn't perfect of course, but large scale warps and off centre pressings should be thrown back

  5. I'm about 4 episodes in, its good this. It's standard South Korean fare though, the direction, the story and the random smatterings of the old ultraviolence and gore they go for. How the fuck this ended up getting rated as a 15 by the BBFC is hilarious though given their 90's track record
  6. I'm going to download it hopefully, try it for a few minutes then delete and save it for the proper release Of course the usual gaming modus operandi is to do the test and cancel your pre-order
  7. Loving the comments already on that tweet - pre-ordered cancelled etc. - fucking idiots
  8. Proof - if needed - that awards are bobbins. The game isn't actually finished, yet wins 4 awards
  9. I bounced off this quite hard last night - the later EMMI encounters really start to grate and the window of opportunity is ever decreasing. It's about the only thing I don't like about this game, I'm OK with the challenge outside of these otherwise. I can't make my mind up if the map is too big, or its just the fact that each area has two entry and exit points making the areas too fractured.
  10. https://www.denofgeek.com/games/metroid-dread-david-jaffe-difficulty-rant-controversy-reactions/ He's made himself look a bit of a knob here. Don't rate his games either. "...super challenging..." you are 50 years old you twat
  11. I think I know, it will be the only thing I haven't tried yet. Will find out later!
  12. In a basement, somewhere deep in the bowels of Nintendo HQ, there is a department no one knows still exists, and in the corner there is a dusty telephone on a desk. It suddenly rings - someone there, who hasn't seen daylight in two decades, blows the dust off the phone to answer it... "Hi yeah - we are looking to put some really wanky platforming sections in a new game we are developing - you know where the ledges disappear after one second of touching them - in a really large and deep area..." "I'll be right up"
  13. Are you doing stereo or mono versions? Mono has so much more balls and energy to a lot of the songs
  14. I'm 50 now - still gaming on and off, but my gaming has certainly dwindled in the recent decades. I used to love the era of the proper optimised games coming out of Japan, but now its all very western driven these days, a complete turnaround from the 80s and 90s I get bored easily by some games too, if a game takes too long to start, like 20-30 minutes before I actually play it, I'm likely to shelve it or delete it. Open world games don't interest me either, give me some structure. Recently Metroid Dread strikes the balance, not too much faff to get started, all the abilities you need are available to you without constantly going into menus and equipping/unequipping stuff. I think I can boil down my gaming habits to a few things these days * Quick 10-20 minutes a go games - like COD online for example, but playing on my own - usually a FFA or small TDM where I don't have to talk to anyone * Games like the Soulsbourne genre - no maps, no bullshit cutscenes, just get stuck right in and find your feet. * I'm usually a sucker for a good arcade racer, shame they have all but dried up I'll keep gaming for as long as I can. I think it keeps the brain and reactions up. I love hustling the youngsters too, I'm still amazed when I win a few rounds of COD FFA, and when friends and family have children and I go around there and they think I've never played a games console before. The first time I play I say to them "what are the controls, what does this button do? etc." and then be unbelievably bad at the game. When I then ask for a second go, completely annihilate them or their high score - and then walk off
