  1. 50 should do it, but possibly only because three will get relegated this season. Fylde will surely pick up a bit at some point though. They've got the money to throw at it.
  2. 2nd in the table Harrogate Town who had won 5 in a row without conceding a goal today hosted the team with the worst away record in the league who hadn't won on an artificial pitch in 11 1/2 years of conference football. Something like a 2-0 Wrexham victory was inevitable.
  3. He took a decent penalty later on in the match too and very nearly got a hat trick. He was really good at the weekend and back to the player we had in the first months of last season before the Christmas period that year nearly destroyed him. 32 isn't mega old, but he does struggle to play well game after game and visibly benefits from time off. Maybe we should only play him in home games from now on.
  4. 5 wins and 3 losses in 8 for Wrexham has the table looking a bit better now than it did when we were rock bottom at the end of November. Notably, Ebbsfleet and Chorley are starting to look a little detached in 23rd and 24th and sides in poorer form than us like Dagenham and Redbridge have been sucked down into the relegation fight. I did witness the worst performance I've ever seen against Aldershot the Saturday before last, but was encouraged by our 3-0 victory against Woking at the weekend. Defensively we had to stay resilient for a couple for key periods and we were pretty lively going forward throughout. New attacking midfield signing from Stoke Jarvis played a big part in this with a great debut. Our away form is dreadful and the away games we have left are mostly against the top sides in the division, so I think we'll probably have to rely quite heavily on more home performances like that to achieve safety. But at this point in time, as long as we keep our key players fit, I'm hopeful that we'll just about do it. The fist goal by Summerfield was alright by the way. We've had a monumentally shit season, but at least 1/3 of our goals scored have been amazing.
  5. It was already an exhilarating rhythm action game featuring stupendous next level waggle and one of VR's finest, but Beat Saber on Quest feels much more than it did on PS4 with untethered freedom and the ease of simply popping the headset on every time I want some quick block slicing action. The recent 360 mode a great evolution. Oculus Quest is a massive step forward for VR gaming and wins platform of the year by a mile. Luigi’s Mansion 3 looks and sounds amazing and is a joy to gently explore and capture alone or with another. Mario Maker 2 is the brilliant Mario Maker, but expanded in small but significant ways. It’s not as suited to Switch though and was too overfamiliar to have the impact the first one had on me. It's the original then that makes my top 10 of the decade. Kine is a really decent puzzle game that tells a lovely story with levels well designed to convey the emotion of relationships and situations the characters find themselves in through gameplay. Untitled Goose Game reminded me that I do actually like sandbox openworld games, it’s just that almost all of them are way too big and bloated and not funny enough. Game of the Year A1.

Motorstorm Apocalypse D5. New Super Mario Bros U D6. Super Mario Odyssey D7. Beat Saber D8. The Witness D9. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze D10. Super Mario Maker The big three could be in any order. Skyward Sword is Zelda not for everyone, but the stars aligned for me. A game that wouldn't have been made by anyone other than Nintendo at that particular point in time. The motion controls are wonderful, particularly the sword combat, but it's also the linear Zelda template taken to new heights, with amazing dungeons and the best character driven story of the series. Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are the pinnacle of 3D platform gaming and the most magical of roller coaster home console thrill rides. The sequel’s levels even surpass the original. And Mario Kart 8 is the best arcade racing game we’ve seen with incredible all skill levels online competitive multiplayer. 4-10 after that could be in pretty much any order too and could well have included games like Portal 2, Flower, The Last Guardian, Pikmin 3, Splatoon, VVVVVV, Super Mario 3D World, Astro Bot, Nintendo Land and Rocket League.
  6. Yeah, our keeper is ace and I have no doubt that if he had been fit from the start of the season that we would be a fair few points higher up the table. You certainly look like you've got your shit together enough recently to stay up. To be honest, you looked good enough against us earlier in the season. Massive game for us against Chorley on Boxing Day. On paper we should win, but my guess is the players will be nervous as hell, particularly with the bigger crowd.
  7. Smashed us you buggers. Your home form may be abysmal, but our away form is more abysmal, so its not entirely surprising. And I had you lot down as our most tricky of games over this festive period against a succession of relegation candidates. Didn't follow the game as I was working, but what's the prevailing opinion on our performance from Sutton fans?
  8. How did you force the update? I need to play this now. EDIT Just deleted the whole thing and now downloading again to see if that works. IT WORKED!
  9. I took the foam thing off and handwashed it with some fragrance free washing powder for sensitive skin types. Got it lovely and clean. Try that.
  10. Agree with that. I'm not 100% sure about Pistol Whip. It's good fun for the first play through of songs and ace to be shooting along with a beat, but when going for high scores or the harder level challenge I've been forcing myself to try and get something more out of it with not enough reward. It's basically nothing like as good as Beat Saber or as clever and cool and impressive as Superhot.
  11. Kinect perfectly illustrated the value of actually having controllers in your hand with buttons and sticks and something solid to hold and feel for waggle gaming. This will still be true for the majority of the types of games in VR, although there is certainly more potential for using handtracking in VR. There's also the option of having a controller in one hand and the other free. It's pretty easy to imagine how that could be ace.
  12. We have had good results, but also some poor ones, and taking a team to the very bottom of the conference isn't the best way to win fans over. So no, not really. A good bunch of supporters are directing their dissatisfaction at the board at the moment. At least online they are. Which is fair enough. They made a pig's ear of replacing Ricketts after he left around this time last year and that's ultimately led to the position we are in.
  13. 2-0 to Wrexham last night. Our first away win of the season at mid table Eastleigh. On loan Bradford City forward Omari Patrick got both of our goals. We switched to 5 at the back for the first time under Keates, possibly out of desperation rather than the result of inspired tactical nous, but it sounded like it suited the players and enabled us to get our best available players all out on the pitch at the same time. A home game against league title favourites Solihull on Saturday.
