    Pinball Dreams Amstrad CPC

    No I don't think so, so fair point. I'm sure everyone knows, but the team that made the original Amiga Pinball Dreams were from the demoscene team The Silents. The success of this game helped them build into a new company that people may know today as DICE. So bit weird that Rebellion now own the rights?! You'd have thought DICE would have tried to repurchase their old content at some point.

    Battlefield V

    Meh. I got stuck on the one about scoring points 'in a reinforcement vehicle'. First I had no idea what that meant.. I presumed it meant armoured for some reason so spent an hour or two wondering which vehicle I should have been using. Once I realised what it meant then I spend a few games trying to get hold of the commander spot, then getting frustrated that whenever I do actually call in a reinforcement vehicle it gets snatched away by some other cnut. So yeah. This weeks missions can do one.

    The Big Lebowski

    Hello. Resident pinball nerd here, so since this thread is bumped I just thought I'd mention that Dutch Pinball made a game out of this film a few years back. It's a decent game, but not amazing. Pretty rare game though since they had problems with their manufacturers, so not many out there... If you were lucky enough to be an early buyer, you'd have got a real rug with the machine. The game features a mini bowling game and a rug that unfurls too. John Goodman caused a little hassle during licencing too apparently because he didn't want his images to be associated with any violence or drug references. I guess that makes a sequel pretty unlikely!

    Pet Sematary 2019 remake

    Yeah I'm kicking myself for watching that trailer. Why do I/they never learn ( read the book when I was a kid, so had forgotten most of the plot points).

    Russian Doll - Netflix Groundhog Party

    Yes, but the protagonists show no awareness of the fruit situation until much later and fumble on trying to solve a situation that seems massively beneficial. 'You died. Try again'. There is no logical reason given for why the character thought this was bad. Odd certainly, but not something you'd try to fix (presumably by making sure your death was final?) Really this is my only gripe with the concept in those early episodes

    Russian Doll - Netflix Groundhog Party

    Groundhog day had a better concept. He really was stuck in a 24 hour cycle that you would want to break out of In this though it seemed to me, why would you want to break out of this? Do whatever you want, but *if* you die you go back and get another chance? Like I say, thankfully they start having a reason to break the cycle, but not until a good few episodes towards the end

    Russian Doll - Netflix Groundhog Party

    Holy crap. I watched the first two episodes of this and very nearly gave up on it. I didn't find the main character very likeable at all, and the concept seemed a bit hokey. Anyone else feeling similar thoughts, stick with it. It's impossible to explain without spoiling the whole thing, suffice it to say I did a complete 180 on my opinion by the end, and it's really only in this last two episodes that I could truly appreciate what has been created here Very deceptive the way this all turns out, and one of the best things on Netflix right now

    Has the Steam background always been this way, or is this just some Spelunky 2 hype... (also yes, I still play this game a lot)

    Chinese new year sale started. You get some free tokens to spend on profile tat depending on how much you've bought on Steam apparently... I got 1000 tokens for my measly purchases recently, but I bet some of you guys are probably token millionaires right?!

    Thanks so much. Had no idea you could do that, and it looks like everything is working again now. Cheers kindly!

    Xbox One Console Thread

    I haven't been able to log in for at least three days now. I just get a black screen and a 'Try again later' message. Up until today I could press the guide button and launch BF5 though, but today pressing the guide button changes the black screen to a grey screen. Most frustrating. Service status says everything is fine, but loads of people complaining on twitter

    Battlefield V

    Playing on xbox one x, or trying to... The main menu just says that "I'm missing multiplayer privileges" Is this for anyone else, or have I been banned somehow!? Edit: Herp derp. My XBL Gold ran out

    Black Mirror - Bandersnatch

    I loved the Jeff Minter cameo. This was definitely a film by gamers, about gamers, for gamers. Also loved that after a rewind you could pick the same option, but then get a different outcome. That was a real wow moment as it started me thinking just how many different branches there might be, or that there was some randomisation of the story too... But having read the comments here I think I've seen all the things discussed, so maybe it's just an illusion of choice, which as @Bacon Horsemeat pointed out, is very meta.

    Bros: After the screaming stops

    A thousand upvotes for finding this. Remarkable. Starts off reminding me very much of David Brent and was actually toying with the idea that this was all a parody (especially after the reveal that Luke's new career is as an actor), but then the after the amazing arguments there is that emotional mid-section and they come across very well in the end. Loveable, pretentious, a bit dim, but hearts of gold. This is the interview on This Morning following that spat, to save anyone else searching for it
