  1. The switch thread is a bit of a mega-thread so seeing if we can carve the eShop part of it into its own chat - not going to create a new thread every week but hopefully this will move some of the traffic out the mega-thread. Can I buy from a browser from the eShop ? You need to access the eShop at least once from your Switch before you can buy online. Once you've done that though, yes you can buy online and it'll download automatically. http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Nintendo-Switch/Games/Games-1178441.html eShop Price Comparison www.eshop-prices.com/?currency=GBP How To Access Foreign eShops Specifically looking to set up a Japanese account? Eurogamer have a handy guide here, though the same method applies for all regions. I’m based in Europe… can I log onto overseas eShops? 1) Use a browser to go to accounts.nintendo.com 2) Create a new account 3) Set your region to the one you want, e.g. Japan. NOTE: This can be changed at any time 4) On the Switch, go to SYSTEM SETTINGS > USER > ADD NEW USER. 5) Set icon and nickname (anything memorable will do, but you might want to add ‘JPN’ to the end of the nickname for easy reference) 6) Link this to the account you created in step 2 You can either repeat this step for different territories OR simply use your second account as a floating region, remembering to change the region at accounts.nintendo.com and re-entering your password to agree to the country's specific EULA. NOTE: Any eShop funds you have tied to a specific store (e.g. Japan) will be erased if you switch the account region. ____________ How do I log on to an overseas eshop? Simple: click/press on the eShop icon, then choose the account you want to log in with. Do I have to swap accounts to play overseas games? NO (yippee!). All games show against all accounts Will Japanese/overseas language games show in my local language when I use my local account? Not so far. Game languages support is always on the 'disk' Can I use my credit card to buy from all European countries? Yes. This includes Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Russia, so be sure to check their prices. Can I use my credit card to buy from the US and Japan (and other international stores) ? Unfortunately, no (unless you happen to have a card from that territory). You will have to buy eShop cards from places such eBay, Japan Code Supply or Play-Asia, etc. or use an alternative method (Sorry, no PayPal either). Stocking up with eShop funds has it's disadvantages, however as they can not only be expensive, but should you change your region, any remaining credit will be erased. This goes for changing your main account, too, so please be careful to only top up with the correct amount or as close to that as possible.

    I thought it was an early stoppage, Cejudo may have smashed him further but in a huge fight like this you've gotta let it go a little more.

    Salah is now added to the list of confirmed divers, it may cost them too as now that tag sticks refs all become conscious of it and with nothing but big games at this stage of the season he'll get clipped in a big game and it'll be waved away (I hope that sort of karmic justice comes to play) This spate of soft penalties is annoying the shit out of me, and the lame defence of them too - a hand brushing a shoulder or shirt and the 'oh there's contact' line defending that makes somebody fling themselves to the floor - it's all pathetic and I'm not convinced VAR will sort as so often its the media refs defending the decision. Not seen much of Chelsea until yesterday as they struck me as pretty tedious under Sarri, in the flesh they were awful (Arsenal were quite good to in the first half that said)) - the defence in particular and the non functioning midfield, Alonso is a curious player, seems to have no defensive responsibility whatsoever and just leaves a huge hole on the left of the pitch popping up often as an auxiliary centre forward.

    Food Prepping

    Just started getting into this in last few weeks and I’m quite excited by it. I’m not going down the full 3 meals a day prep thing, rather trying to get a great stock of home made ready meals stashed in the freezer so when I get home from work I don’t have to cook, I just decide the night before what to defrost in fridge for next day. My own rules checklist is dish must be microwaveable with no huge drop in quality (i.e anything crispy or pastry is rubbish in microwave) and more importantly must be edible with just a fork or spoon - I have use of both arms fortunately but don’t want to be cutting when I get home from work (my prepping my rules). Must also fit into a nice disposable food tray they sell on amazon (lots of choice there for these, and I tend to use a couple of times as they quite robust) Stews been popular so far, as has chili, meat loaf (portion up and freeze it) Below is a Hairy Bikers chicken stew with Potato Cobbler and mash, and the most divine smelling Tom Kerridge stew & Dauphinoise spuds, made with beef shin (its a weird recipe, got apples and all sorts in but made the kitchen smelll like a gastropub and tasted gorgeous) Next step is to get sausage mash and onion gravy in a pot - I’m going a bit higher end at moment and making all from scratch myself, so looking for some inspiration for other things to try, I could just whack some rice and a cooked chicken breast in a pot but the reward from a bit of effort is pretty high at present.

    Puell must have said something at HT to make the players like him again.
  6. I think there is a tipping point spot when something merits its own thread broken out from the mega thread, its probably more than only a couple of posts, I prefer the mega thread with something only broken out if there is sufficient discussion to merit it.

    The only team worse than Leicester for the players chucking in the towel when they don't fancy the manager any more are Chelsea.

    Food Prepping

    Previous pot reviews - love the concept of the hungarian meatballs, and the veg side is lovely, the sauce was just lacking punch but it will return as the staple idea of meatballs rice veg and a sauce to turn the thing into whatever you want is a good one. Today was time constrained and looking to create some good comfort food stock - sometimes the recipes are quite elaborate and need a lot of ingredients, nothing flash going on here today - 13 meals into stock with my Ocado arriving at 915 and the last bit of washing up done and away by 1230. Chilli mac is a really quick 1 pot thing from here https://www.recipetineats.com/one-pot-chili-mac-and-cheese/ (I use more meat than the recipe and upped the spice accordingly) Sausage mash and beans is just school dinners, but I do make the onion mustard gravy and my other half has taken a liking to sous vide mash (it does taste more potatoey).

    You (Netflix Series Thriller)

    This is brilliant - its utter trash but somehow is quite self aware and seemingly knows it, so although its played straight its no po-faced or serious about how stupid and trashy it is. I've rattled thru it and only got a couple of eps to go, and unusually for me I'm not finding it too stretched out or long (maybe there was 1 ep all set in single house) Utter rubbish but good rubbish.

    TJ has always come across as super professional so made weight without any reported dramas - he didn't look like Jonny Hendricks either all week in interviews and was able to stand on his own and seemed mentally totally with it in interviews. He had to have shed some muscle so whilst he's now probably stuffing his face and rehydrating like a bastard he can't come in on fight night at the same weight he would usually. edit http://www.espn.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/25777457/tj-dillashaw-makes-biggest-weight-cut-career?sf206234324=1 so he started at 154lbs with 8% body fat - that is insane as must take a toll, if he doesn't get Cejudo out early he must wilt pretty fast from the second onwards I'd have thought

    Vikings - A History channel original series

    Really struggling with this latest season, most of it is just so dull. I’d skip the whole iceland/floki storyline if i could and find the whole ivor situation ludicrous. If it wasn’t for how many seasons in with it I am at this point I’d bin it

    Sport Documentaries

    These seem to be growing in popularity in recent years and better suited to this sub forum than the main TV section. Started watching the 3rd series of All or Nothing last night on Netflix, this is an all access behind the scenes doc following a US college football team (which is oddly huge in the US and gets huge crowds and full TV coverage) - The first 2 seasons were brilliant, and the 3rd takes the format but at a different university. The coach in this one seems the most unpleasant individual committed to film in a long time (even compared to Buddy in seasons 1&2). Netflix has a 6 part series following Juve last season, First Team, but its very lightweight and suffers from lack of access, 90% of it is match conferences, press conferences and players talking whilst driving their cars (mostly Buffon). Its a real puff piece Nd totally avoids any insight or controversy, Buffon saying Michael Oliver had a municple trash can for a heart doesn’t warrant a mention. What is odd is how most of Juve’s signage and merch is written in English. Amazon has their rival All or Nothing series - the first 3 seasons of this followed big NFL teams, but there is now a college spin off (really good with a nice coach this time) and an All Blacks rugby one. Coming soon is a Man City version for last season and be intrigued to see if they get the same access the NFL teams gave them, dressing rooms and all. Final shout is to something I'd missed originally - The Four Year Plan, it follows QPR a few back when taken over by Lakshmi Mittal, Flavio Briatore and some other billionaire chums, and its a proper warts and all horror show for most concerned https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Four-Year-Plan-Amit-Bhatia/dp/B0778NJDQK/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1532154905&sr=8-5&keywords=qpr

    those can't be real Dean Saunders quotes as they don't all start with 'for me' I have a pretty high tolerance level for idiots talking about football on the radio but about the only person who will make me automatically turn off now is Dean Saunders, vile little man.

    Good luck - as I said in the post I did the TinEats recipe but with about 1.4kg of beef cheeks, so had to up the cook time considerably as per the other recipe I posted.

    just finished the second season of QB1 on Netflix - it follows 3 potential superstar QBs of the future at high school level before they decide which university to go to its not as slick or big budget as Last Chance U or the All or Nothing college season but that almost isn't the point, you see how these young kids have huge pressure on them from such a young age, some of the high school games played before huge crowds and shown live on ESPN and often carry the hopes of their whole family.

    Arsenal

    Being reported Bayern want him and he’s inclined to go - all beginning to unravel a bit and like Utd its proving hard to follow up on such a pivotal figure who held it all together. All looked quite promising a couple of months ago too !

    Arsenal

    Club will just promote Emilio Martinez to bench warmer, does at least free his wages up which I imagine are significant, but does cut off the revenue stream from endorsed goalkeeper padded hats.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    as a scientologist I think he'll have an issue with the imagery of a volcano, that'll never get past Miscavage on script approval. shooting back to back will save them lots of time as they can shoot the 2 party/reception scenes at the same time along with the 2 'bonk the baddie on the noggin and scan his head for a rubber mask in the toilet cubicle' scenes.

    True Detective - Season 3

    I really enjoyed it, the timeline 'trick' is becoming quite prevalent now with a lot of shows taking an otherwise linear story and chopping it up to make it harder to follow - that said I really quite enjoyed how it makes you pay attention and piece little bits of the story together. The mumbling dialogue is a bit hard to follow at times, and I've got some pretty decent speakers and don't normally struggle. The lead cop performance is pretty good, especially the scene in ep1 when he was off doing his recon thing in the woods Some of the ageing prosthetics for the most recent timeline dialogue don't hold up to lengthy close ups on a 65" screen.

    so TJ has admitted to being 135lbs at the start of the week - normally cutting 10lbs would be easily in range for these guys at bigger weights - but how has he got 10lbs of water or fat to shed on an already cut down frame, just his head alone in the interview looks shredded.

    With all the MMa cognescenti declaring DJ the greatest champ of all time ever aren’t people sleeping on Cejudo a bit ? I think Dillishaw is one of the best, and its a good matchup, buts its one of those no result would surprise me type fights. I’ll make TJ fave as he’s normally pretty accurate with his punching and finding Cejudo’s massive noggin shouldn’t be difficult for him
  24. I've been thinking about this for quite a while with it often cropping up in several threads about both TV & film, why is everything so long nowadays, and is there a start of a move to briefer runtimes ? Homecoming on Amazon is a rare thing, in that its a super tense thriller with only 30m eps, and they work perfectly, not an ounce of fat on it, on a totally different front BBC3's Pls Like is another very tight show sending up the youtube vloggers, the 15m 6 eps are super tight and the joke may have been ruined if dragged out to half hour eps. Why do the big streaming services so often still insist on commissioning such long runs of shows (Netflix seem very flexible on ep length, but insist more often than not on a 10 or 12 ep run, which often spreads a good idea too thinly). Documentaries are often struck with this problem too, frustrated filmmakers drag a good hour of content out to a couple of hours, and with the rise of the doc series (some of which are brilliant and totally worth the runtime) I expect to see what could have been a good 2h doc now get dragged out to 6 eps in some cases. I watch far fewer movies nowadays, but all these big popcorn summer blockbusters now seem to have 2h30m lengths, what happened to the likes of Commando being an action packed 90m ? So have I just trained my mind to flitting around with too much phone, internet and youtube usage or could a lot of stuff all take a damn good editing, and be better for it ?
