    Yeah, mine's physical. There was talk upthread that you need an email as well as claiming the coins. I'm pretty sure the in game advice just mentioned the coins.

    What are you playing Christmas Day?

    At the in-laws this year so Smash (and probably Monster Boy when I cave and buy it) will be my salvation from my racist Father-In-Law. When we get back and the nipper is asleep it'll be Mario Party time. My wife does not know this yet.

    What did you do mate, just email them? I haven't received a code at all despite claiming my coins on Saturday.

    Very impressed with the Saints last night. Adding resilience and bounceback-ability to their repertoire. The first half made it look like the Cowboys game had really done a number on them. But the comeback was really impressive, helped by a missed FG or two. Also if anyone really want's a good giggle, check out Mark Sanchez's stats from the Skins/Gints game. Makes Blake Bortles look like Tom Brady (outside of Miami obvs). Complete Yards TD Ints Rating 6/14 38 0 2 10.7 I'm amazed his rating is that high.

    The Official Rllmuk Awards 2018 - Voting Thread

    Another quietish year this year, for the same reasons, kids, work, sleep, PAH! Oh well; here are some very predictable entries without as many try-hard puns as last year, but more badly written sentiments instead. Game of the Year A1. Spider-Man “I really tough choice but in a year with several well written, great playing games the traversal just about…wait for it…swung it in Spidey’s favour.” A2. God of War “Never played a GoW game before and had no interest in this until the hype train chuffed in to the station. And Boy (sorry) am I glad I caught it as GoW was much better than ending up in Birmingham Snow Hill.” A3. Picross S2 “There’s oxygen and there’s Picross. Oh, and food I guess.” A4. Into the Breach “So that’s why I haven’t played many games this year.” A5. Red Dead Redemption 2 “Beautiful world, great writing, brilliant acting, so much to do. Just imagine how well it must control…” Biggest Disappointment of the Year (game, hardware, or anything else) Z1. Fallout 76 “Like many others, I haven’t actually played it. I wanted to but…y’know?” Z2. Wargroove still not being released “Patience, patience. *punches wall*” Z3. Mario Tennis Adventure Mode “New trawls please!” Z4. Sea of Thieves “Wanted to love this bugger, but just couldn’t find the gold, so had to reluctantly hand out the black spot. I did enjoy a few hours of shouting ‘Cabin Fever’ at my play buddy on launch night though.” Z5. EGX moving back to London “I know, I know. But it was just nice having one major event I could get to without travelling for hours.” Sound Design of the Year S1. Red Dead Redemption 2 “Sumptuous, atmospheric music and perfect incidental sounds.” S2. Guacamelee 2 “Again, perfect music and a great chicken.” S3. Super Smash Brother Ultimate “So. Many. Tunes. And I’ve barely scratched the surface.” Visual Design of the Year V1. Red Dead Redemption 2 “Just a perfect sense of place, constantly found myself impressed by the geography of the game.” V2. Octopath Traveller “Simply gorgeous sprite work, what all games would look like had 3D not caught on.” V3. God Of War “Incredible environments, less so enemies. Always got a chill when the World Serpent was spotted hanging around.” Writing of the Year W1. Red Dead Redemption 2 “A great story (mostly) well told. Some amazing characters and actual character progression and not just of the main guy for once. Be it Dutch’s unravelling or Sadie’s hardening there we’re no window dressing companions in this. Just a shame some of the side stories (Henri Lemeiux being an obvious one for me) felt a bit rushed.” W2. Spider-man “Well chuffed it wasn’t another origin story, with some brilliantly written characters. PP was pitched spot on as was MJ. Again it’s a shame things seemed to get rushed in the transition from Chapter 2 to Chapter 3.” W3. God of War “Only let down by the total heel-turn of Freya at the end, it seemed so against her character. But I felt the frosty relationship of Kratos and Boy, and it’s gradual softening was very well written.” Gaming Format (System) of the Year F1. Playstation 4 Publisher or Developer of the Year P1. Sony Best Supported Game (released pre 2018) of the Year B1. Rock Band 4 Your game of the year that didn't come out this year (basically what is your favourite game you played this year that came out in 2017 or earlier) X1. Night in the Woods “Goes a bit mental at the end but I was utterly absorbed in Mae’s world for a week. The writing is pitched perfectly and also brought the song ‘Die Anywhere Else’ in to my life.” Best game character of the year C1. Sadie Adler “Yeah, yeah. Arthur is the lead, but Sadie is the star. In a game full of great characters Sadie stands head and shoulders above everyone for the journey she takes. Anyone who declined to help her in Chapter 6 missed out.” C2. Arthur Morgan “A few beats aside; Arthur is Rockstar’s best attempt at the reluctant anti-hero yet.” C3. Mimir “A Scottish, mythology spouting, foul-mouthed head…”

    A big problem is players always going for the 'Highlight-Reel Hit' (and having to watch Josh Norman for the last few seasons I know from which I speak). Too many times a defender just has to wrap up tackle a guy but absolutely can't resist instead going for a big hit to get them selves in the game highlights. Of course 90 percent of the time they whiff it letting the ball carrier mosey past them. I know this isn't always the case with missed tackles but none the less it winds me up.

    I love those covers, they remind me of Nerds. I realise this adds nothing to the conversation but I had to get it out.

    Dreamcast is now 20 (in Japan)

    Yup, my Game used to get stacks of spares sent to us to replace any that got caught by a slight breeze. Invariably some of the replacements arrived smashed.
  12. TBH, all anyone will need is Wargroove.

    Donut County - Out Now! PS4/IOS/Windows/Mac

    I played entirely on iPhone and it worked perfectly. The hole just follows you finger movements no matter where you touch the screen so you don't obscure it.

    All Time Favourite Gaming Mission

    What a great, and really tough question. My lizard-brain responses would have to be: The first star in Bob-omb Battle field,because of what it represented to gaming The 'Archangel' recruitment mission in Mass Effect 2 and the air punching that followed once one's suspicions of who Archangel was were confirmed.

    Damn you Kempstar, I don't want another game on my to-buy list. *Adds Monster Boy to to-buy list* Take your +1
