  1. I've just binge watched both seasons during my recovery from covid and I've enjoyed it. However, I do think there is a significant drop off from season 1 to season 2.
  2. Ah - it's got to be Kevin Nolan? (The Bolton connection reminded me)
  3. Trying to think of footballers beginning with U - David Unsworth used to score more than he should have for a defender, is it him?
  4. Gerrard, surely? Also, has Van Persie scored more than Vardy? Jesus for J?
  5. They've also apparently said that they will only consider new coaches who are currently out of work. Also heard that Paolo Fonseca is in the running, who would be a vastly superior choice.
  6. Heard they want Eddie Howe. God, I hope not - if their new owners weren't reason enough to dislike them, seeing them master the dark arts a la Bournemouth will turn even more people against them. Can't stand the man.
  7. Question for the hive mind! My mate has just moved in with his brother and has signed up for Game Pass (with the £1 deal thing after I told him about it...) He's asked what the best GP titles are that have local 2 player co op? I've said Master Chief Collection but as I don't play anything split screen/local co op I thought I'd ask you lot as I really don't know!
  8. How the fuck did we win that?? Shame I'm covid ridden as being a Wolves fan working in Birmingham is delicious at times like this!
  9. The Rising Storm is only 99p on Kindle today - get onto it, people!! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08L4DQB7P/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apan_glt_dl_TZBRKD00SEHKNAQD4BTK
  10. Finished this the other night. Was expecting mindless goreporn based on the overall premise, but was very pleasantly surprised by the character development, tension and performances. Some really good plot twists too - this is a really good show and I can see why it's so popular.
  11. Despite the many problems with this, I was only ever going to play through the main campaign on my own anyway, so I've been very pleasantly surprised so far. It looks fantastic on the Series X and combat is decent fun. Hardly innovative but a LOT better than I was expecting. Just a shame about the post game issues.
  12. Watched the IGN one - they said they wouldn't say what happens at the end of one of the intro races. Watched the 2nd one and they showed it all anyway Ah well, my own fault for watching. No more videos for me until launch - really excited to finally play it on day 1.
  13. It *could* work as a standalone but its definitely worth reading Light of the Jedi first: 1. It's probably better overall anyway (not much in it) 2. As it's set at the same time as Into the Dark, you get a much better sense of context 3. LotJ introduces a lot - wouldn't dream of spoiling it but the familiarity helps when you read Into the Dark
  14. Properly addicted to this now. 47 attempts in, 20 escapes so I'm playing around with Heat and gifting everyone nectar to try and fulfill prophecies. I've enjoyed this play through way more than I did on the Switch at the start of the year.
  15. Yes, that's correct. I treated it a bit like one of the anthology films as opposed to the next proper instalment. Got The Rising Storm on my bookcase which I will be starting after I've read a couple of other (non-Star Wars) books on my long list of shame.
  16. The High Republic: Into the Dark by Claudia Gray Huzzah! A new Star Wars book by Claudia Gray! Always something to look out for. With the High Republic series still in its infancy, I'm very pleased that she has been given the opportunity to introduce and flesh out some really interesting characters. Step forward the main cast of Into the Dark: Reath Silas - a padawan Jedi Cohmac Vitus - a seasoned, wise Jedi Master Orla Jareni - a 'wayseeker' Jedi Leox Gyasi - captain of The Vessel (a charter ship in the service of the Byne Corporation who the Jedi use to investigate a mysterious space station) - a bit of Han Solo 'scoundrel' about him, a loveable rogue Affie Hollow - the young first mate of The Vessel Geode - basically a rock and the 3rd member of The Vessel's crew! All of these characters are excellent. Really well written, I really hope we see more of all of them as this series continues. So much more to them than the standard Skywalker Saga Jedi, with the supporting cast balancing things out brilliantly. This book is set during the same time period as Light of the Jedi, with the aforementioned 'Great Disaster' being the catalyst that makes the Jedi take refuge at a mysterious Amaxine space station. But this station has a very dark past, and the Jedi sense the darkness as soon as they dock. As with LotJ, Into the Dark explores more about the way Jedi use the force, and it's a lot more complicated that the original films have us believe. This is a good thing because it opens up so many possibilities. The story aligns well with LotJ, but I dont think its imperative to read that first. It probably helps but Into the Dark holds up well on it's own. The action takes some time to get going but by the end, its enthralling with the introduction of some tremendous new bad guys, and a neat back story into a past incident shared by Orla and Cohmac, when they were padawans. The real star of this though is Reath - such a good character. I shall follow his progress with great interest.... This is a very good continuation of the High Republic saga and as with Light of the Jedi, I was entertained throughout and excited about the new characters, new antagonists and new adventures. Very good overall. 8/10
  17. When you've finished the story, go back to the earlier levels and see how much more powerful you are! I managed to snipe the main target on the first level from literally the other side of the map Insanely good fun
  18. Had a few goes on this and I don't think it's for me - I really don't find it much fun, and I can excuse bugs for a beta test but I dunno - it feels a bit like a chore to play. Not a patch on the Halo Infinite flights over the past few weekends. I know they're different beasts, but I don't really think I have the time to sink into 2 FPS multiplayer games these days!
  19. It's much easier said that done to 'sever all ties' with the club you've supported for most/all of your life. A club is way beyond a stadium, the owners, even the players. Especially seeing as we've been unable to actually attend games for over a year - I've still not been back to Molineux since March last year, and I really miss the occasion. It's why I always have a lot of sympathy for fans whose club does things that are morally repugnant - and Wolves are certainly not innocent of this over the past few months. I agree that the Premier League should be doing something to stop investment of this kind but as has been said - when this country is governed by people who would sell their own mothers into slavery if it meant making a quick buck at the expense of others, what chance does the average football fan have? Especially when they're the ones who are thought of last - ticket prices are sky rocketing for some clubs, despite the fact that most Premier League clubs really don't need gate receipts to make any sort of financial difference. On a tangent here, but personally, I'm annoyed at our owners who have yanked up the costs of match tickets despite the 'product' on offer being arguably less than what we were paying for 2/3 years ago. You can't argue that it's comparable to other clubs because people aren't going to stop watching Wolves and decide to support Leicester or Villa FFS - football clubs aren't competing with other football clubs to 'win' hardcore support from them. It's not Xbox v Playstation. Modern football is great to watch but fucking hell - it's WAY too expensive.
  20. FINALLY! I can get Alliances - been waiting ages for that to be on sale. Cheers for the heads up, @Butters In other Star Wars news - I've almost finished Into The Dark by Claudia Gray - one of the new High Republic books. I'll post a review when I'm done
  21. Just binge watched the whole thing in around a week - what a brilliant, brilliant show this is. Fantastic characters and performances, and a feel good factor not dissimilar to Parks and Rec in places. Very interesting to see the plot development in the 2nd season - it's very cleverly written.
  22. 30 runs in, 7 clears now. Will start to increase the heat a bit and concentrate on getting some achievements. Need to work out how to unlock the hidden aspects - I'm guessing more conversations with other characters? Also, should you only give out nectar to each character once? I think I'm enjoying it more than I did when I first played it on the Switch.
