  1. In before the “why don’t we just leave and give them precisely what they want?” posts.
  2. If the “ban him for as long as the other guy is injured” rule comes in then what happens when someone tackles Adam Lallana or Andy Carroll? Do Jack Wilshere and Daniel Sturridge suddenly get offered big contacts by Real Madrid just so they can make their debut in El Clasico and get a couple of Barcelona players banned for an entire season?
  3. I liked the look of the new centre half Fofana who was making his debut for Leicester today. I know he’s young but he’s gonna be a regular starter given the transfer fee, surely? Jonny Evans is still an exceptional player so I think you’ll be alright at the back. Villa have a really solid 14 or 15 now. We’ve had some really shitty luck with injures in recent years, seems we’ve lost key players for months on end in each of the last three seasons (last year was particularly grim) so I’m hoping for better fortune this time round, or at least for us to get plenty of points on the board b
  4. I'm pretty sure Villa are going to get 100 points this season.
  5. Transport links are definitely a thing when it comes to rivalries, places have more cultural ties if it's easy to move between them. I've always felt that because the Brighton to London railway is such an incredibly busy line and that Croydon is a major stop on the line then Brighton & Hove and Crystal Palace are on each others radars just because of their increased visibility to each other when people are going about their day to day business. Leicester - Coventry is an odd one though, I live in the weird bit of no mans land of North Warwickshire which is between Birmingh
  6. Just like Norwich - Ipswich! There’s clearly more to it than just distance between the two stadiums. I’m not exactly sure what, but there has to be something.
  7. That wont last though. You can easily see from YouTube viewing figures of highlights or social media followers which clubs get the biggest audiences (clue: it's the ones who win every week) and they are the ones that broadcasters actually care about. Once all this settles down and the idea of PPV isn't new or scary then it's going to be the bigger clubs who will be on PPV a lot more, and they'll demand a bigger cut of those revenues. Why would Sky (or BT/Amazon/whoever holds the rights) try and sell, say, Fulham vs Burnley as a PPV game when they can do Liverpool vs Manchester United?
  8. I'd actually be surprised if they went back to an office environment too. The new parent company Red Ventures do list office locations on their website but as far as I can tell the NY and SF locations don't look like the sort of places where there'd be a studio.
  9. Jeff Gerstmann’s daughter would probably beat Jeff in a Jeff Gerstmann lookalike competition.
  10. Probably right now, though John Terry is almost 40.
  11. Don’t sweat it. I’m something like 45 runs in and haven’t got past the third area boss yet. My main problem is I can’t really have any long sessions so I don’t get into that ‘flow’ state where things just click. If I get an hour unbroken then I’m doing well, I could try handheld I guess but I’ve got joycon drift. Thing is I’m still enjoying the game. I definitely spread my efforts too thinly early on, there were probably twenty runs where I was mostly interested in collecting keys just to unlock all of the weapons and I had more fun doing that than I would have done banging my head against
  12. I like Abby, she’s genuinely funny and the chemistry she has with Vinny is a joy. I’ll miss her on the Beastcast.
  13. Do we have any games coming up where any opposition players need long term injuries?
  14. Are you saying the guys who made the prototype wouldn't have put their names in the software before submitting it? If that's the case (and I'm not in the industry so I don't know the practices) then I find it very surprising but I'd say the original tweet has no grounds for complaint but I find it hard to believe that there wouldn't be some kind of list of names attached to the source of the footage.
  15. What the bloody hell is going on with England? Two years ago we had a likeable team and a likeable manager. Yes, the run to the World Cup semi finals was almost certainly helped by the way the draw for the tournament unfolded but now we've got players acting like utter arseholes constantly and really lacklustre performances, it's like 2010 all over again even though we've got this supposedly amazing strength in depth. I will say I don't like how Jack Grealish is being used as a stick to beat Gareth Southgate with though. Jack is now becoming one of those players whose reputation
  16. I mean on a personal level I'm at a job with a very low turnover in staff so it would probably be easier than something like game development where there is a lot more contract work being handed out but in this Golden Axed situation I'd probably at least spend an hour with Linkedin open in one window and the credits to the game in another before publishing the video.
  17. I'm not against the concept of releasing abandoned games as historical curiosities, and someone who has mad nostalgia for Golden Axe this would interest me more than most attempts to reboot an old franchise. Yes, the footage doesn't look great but fuck me, the absolute lack of class from Sega if they couldn't even be arsed to contact the team who worked on the game ahead of doing this.
  18. Well Spoilerbot does seem to have retired from TCGS so apologies. Why did they bin Spoilerbot anyway? Trying to cut him/her/them out of the Patreon millions?
  19. So where were you when @elmo did the comedy mini chief “hello!” then? I was just coming onto Spaghetti Junction on the M6 and it tickled me pink. I was laughing so hard I had to turn the car stereo off in case I crashed into a lorry or something. So cheers for the near death experience boys.
  20. 40 runs in, I've probably been spreading things a bit too thinly as discovering stuff first hand is where I've found a lot of the fun in this game. Probably gonna start looking more seriously at escaping now, but that damn Minotaur keeps kicking my ass.
  21. But not for ten years or so, by which time the people who made the deals will have cashed out.
  22. I mean we are talking about a bunch of people who tried to trademark a terrace chant which took the tune from an 80s disco record and who felt that the copyright to the name of a major English city should sit in the portfolio of a company based in fucking Delaware.
  23. I’ve just upgraded my shield to Aspect of Chaos and other than the shield turning into a huge eyeball I can’t see any changes. It’s supposed to generate bonus shields after a Bull Rush but it still just throws one out. Am I missing something?
  24. Congratulations to Scotland and Northern Ireland. I’m slightly miffed that the decisive penalty wasn’t Fani missing, but you can’t have everything.
