  1. Yes! Everything I played was 50Hz back then so it was fastest thing ever to me.

    The Jazz Thread

    I'm using the opportunity to listen to everything I've not heard yet from this Reddit user's list of 100 essential jazz albums (see the top post rather than the linked article):
  3. Not played this yet - weighing up whether to get the PC or PS4 version (I have a standard PS4). Does anyone have a rough idea how the PC version is likely to run at 1440p on the following spec? Intel i5-7500 CPU (Quad Core, 3.4GHz - 3.8GHz, 6MB Cache) 8GB DDR4 2133MHz UDIMM ASUS GeForce® GTX 1060 Dual OC 3GB At 150GB I'd need to run it off my HDD rather than SSD as well.
  4. You can vote for one of four classic European games to be streamed in full at 7pm tomorrow: https://www.manutd.com/en/events/liveevents?eventtag=17032020WatchUnitedgamesforfreeviaMatchRewind Has to be 1998/1999 Juventus away for me. Legendary game.
  5. Good analysis here of Sunday's game: https://thebusbybabe.sbnation.com/2020/3/10/21171306/manchester-united-manchester-city-manchester-derby-tactical-analysis-return-of-the-solskjaer Love these stats:
  6. My partner's been hogging the Switch recently to play Civ 6 so I've started playing my 3DS again. I'd forgotten what a lovely piece of kit the new XL version is. Picked up Wario Ware Gold for £6 from Argos which is great fun, and perhaps (if it's to be the last) a fitting swansong for the series. Also playing through Super Metroid again which, like all the SNES VC games on this, is perfectly emulated. Not sure what it is but I much prefer playing the SNES games on this than on the Switch.
  7. Sorry (not sorry) to bring it back to VAR... but the media and a lot of whinging fans are getting exactly what they deserve with it after years of OTT armchair scrutiny and criticism of referees. I've always held to the 'the perfect is the enemy of the good' approach when it comes to officiating, especially in football of all sports which is supposed to be a flowing game with minimal stoppages and in which there is a large degree of subjectivity when it comes to judging foul play.
  8. Wow, I need to compose my thoughts fully, but my initial reaction is this is the best film I've seen in years. Loved every minute.
  9. Phoenix's Ti Amo at number 2 on your list is an inspired pick. Definitely one for the good times! Is that your favourite of their records? Wolfgang obviously gets the most love, but I actually find Bankrupt is the one I return to most, the second side in particular - that Drakkar Noir to Chloroform transition is something else. Can't wait until they tour again!
  10. Current thinking... 01 - Frank Ocean - Blonde 02 - Chromatics - Kill for Love 03 - The Arcade Fire - The Suburbs 04 - Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly 05 - Emeralds - Does It Look Like I'm Here? 06 - Danny Brown - Atrocity Exhibition 07 - St. Vincent - St. Vincent 08 - Slowdive - Slowdive 09 - Run the Jewels - Run the Jewels 2 10 - Kids See Ghosts - Kids See Ghosts 11 - IDLES - Joy as an Act of Resistance 12 - Burial - Rival Dealer EP 13 - Beach House - 7 14 - The National - I Am Easy to Find 15 - Alvvays - Antisocialites 16 - Wild Nothing - Gemini 17 - Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness 18 - Oneohtrix Point Never - Replica 19 - Four Tet - New Energy 20 - Cloud Nothings - Here and Nowhere Else
  11. Anyone else think the difficulty levels are really poorly balanced? I did the first few dungeons on Hero mode. I like enemies doing double damage, but I can't understand why they also removed heart pick ups. Make them rarer perhaps, but doing away with them entirely just means you end up spending too much time backtracking to fairy fountains and Crazy Tracy's. It's irritating rather than challenging. I switched to Normal mode instead and it has the opposite problem of being too forgiving. Aside from that and the frame rate issues I can't fault the game.

    The National

    Agreed. The vinyl is a revelation. The female vocals on this are achingly beautiful, and so complementary to Berniger's baritone. Lyrically this is a really strong album as well. So Far, So Fast and in particular "Don't you know someday somebody will come and find you? / If you don't know who you are anymore, they will remind you" slays me every time. Might be my favourite record of theirs.
  13. This kind of hyperbole doesn't help to be honest. Martial had an off day, sure, missed a couple of good chances, but I also watched him make a lot of good runs that just weren't found by the players behind him, which is why he ended up dropping deeper and deeper. Fred has actually been decent this season (him playing like this in a 3 with Herrera and Pogba could have been something). James is young and has a lot of potential - it's the fact he's starting nearly every game due to our lack of wide options that is the issue. Pereira again should just be a squad player at this point. We need a wide player, some creativity in midfield and another centre forward who can give us the option of playing more direct when up against low blocks. Defence is decent (second lowest good chances conceded in the league was a stat I read the other day) and gives us a good base to build from at least. No no no. I'll never watch the team again if this happens.
  14. Didn't feel like I'd listened to enough this year to have a solid 10. Despite that, I'm surprised the Kanye and Charli XCX records didn't make the list. Looking forward to the decade poll @ngchol
