  1. Yeah, agree with that. A stewards decision would cheat both drivers.
  2. If that isn’t forcing a driver off a track then I don’t know what is.
  3. So is it worth going online for this? Enjoying this. The only thing it’s missing is wrestling a heavy feedback wheel (but at least I don’t have to worry about faulty gear shifts).
  4. Visited the D20 board game cafe in Watford, and got to play Wingspan (good little shop, by the way). It's great. Got to play it twice. Lots of varied tactics between players, some nice scoring mechanics which mean you need to keep an eye on each others boards, and the cards are cute - it makes a real effort to use the theme. We even found ourselves talking about birds a couple of times. Luckily a very kind person saw us struggling with the rules and came over to teach us. It is a bit daunting at first - we were struggling as none of us had played it before. Up there with 7 Wonders for light fun strategy (although that's probably a silly thing to say, having only played it twice).
  5. Apparently so (incidentally, the ticket I booked was only the London to Manchester Piccadilly bit). Both train and tram (Metrolink) will get me to the Bury Interchange, it says on the Arcade website. 1 mile walk after that. If I hit any problems I’ll post here next month.
  6. I’ve booked train tickets to go in mid July. £50 return from London, and it’s basically a 6 hour round trip. I must be crazy. But what the hell, just got to go. Reckon I can spend about 6 hours there.
  7. The reviewer seems as baffled about this as you are, saying some of the problems were already solved in 2016s Injustice 2. The review says the fighting is more satisfying than ever, but they hated the grinding, and then there’s a load of fighting game analysis and detail that’s way over my head.
  8. I once bought a pivoting Samsung PC monitor to play Ikaruga on the Dreamcast, but the damn thing pivots the wrong way. Still use it for second screen, in portrait. Good for Word docs.
  9. Which Sega Rally are you playing? Saturn? Similar to others, my time is limited by family. I’ve found I do have 30 to 45 minutes at the end of the day, but usually I’m so tired that starting a game just stresses me out. I managed to play through Breath of the Wild in bite size chunks. I think the only difference was the quality of the game. Or maybe it’s because I felt a little bit of progress each time. But after that I’ve struggled to replace it. FTL gets a play every now and then. Once you’ve got the mechanics of the game, it’s just a case of waiting for the luck.

  11. Got the Kirby cover in my subscriptions. Tis very pretty. Liked the Tetris review. Going to ask Santa for it.
  12. So I've finished off Diddy Kong Racing, and after a 20 year wait, i've finally given Wizpig what for (thanks to whoever mentioned the tip about releasing accelerator when hitting a boost button), and done the hidden world, too. Lovely game, i've thoroughly enjoyed playing through it . The structure really adds something to the single player. I'm now playing Conker's Bad Fur Day which I've purchased off eBay for about the same price as Red Dead Redemption 2 (at least thats how I'm justifying it to myself). I've read a lot about it, but nothing quite prepared me for seeing a mouse explode, or Conker throwing up, or just how weird all the dialogue and voice-overs are. Its all so random and strange.Liking it a lot so far, although the awkward platform jumping needed some practice, as I'm a little bit rusty. i'm currently having my arse handed to me by a hick pitchfork with eyes. All very odd.
  13. First copy of Edge i ever bought was issue 92: I mean, Jesus, just look at it. It practically screamed off the shelf at me. The article pretty much kicked off my love of the game and the Dreamcast, and i've been reading ever since. Just a well written magazine - often its the articles that i've left for last that turn out to be the best bits.
  14. My copy has finally arrived, yay! Its the shiny slime cover, and its so shiny that I'm not missing the subs cover at all. I liked the article on the Super NT, but it was missing one vital piece of information: how I'm supposed to justify it to the wife. Oddly, my copy of 319 landed the day after. I was going to post this in the 319 thread but the Double Dash hand-wringing has frightened me away. I'm in the odd situation where I've read the preview and review of GoW back to back. So, two copies of Edge to read. The subscription has been excellent for many years, but when it goes missing its a long wait. I guess you could say its a bit of a double-edged sword yeeeaaahhhh.
