    Mass Effect Andromeda

    It absolutely is worth picking up. Combat is incredibly fluid and fun (especially with biotics, although @Takizawa would disagree the dirty engineer) and despite there being reams of cookie cutter characters, Pee Bee and Drack are squad mates worthy of their place in the Mass Effect pantheon of greats. Also, the last mission has a bit that is arguably the piece de resistance of ME action. Such a shame it didn't have more time in the oven to get fully ready

    The most beautiful song you ever heard

    I could have put any number of songs but it always comes back to this. Hauntingly beautiful but on the caveat it has to be the full version and none of the 3 min nonsense that puts the crescendo in far too early.
  3. Hah. I finished with a culture victory, 18 trade routes and was earning nearly 2k per turn, spending money in a way that would make Elton John blush and I still had over 200k in the bank. I double checked my stats and I claimed every single Great Merchant (I had to rush buy 2 I think). Once you get Raina to her buy districts promotion you just parachute her around to whatever city needs a district and just buy it; also disgusting if you have Jesuit Education so you can buy campus and theatre district buildings for faith. Quite liking Hungary, especially if you get a good river start. Inca are pretty beastly warmongers too.

    It's tied with 2 for second best in the series for me. It has the best combat and Nakmor Drack, the best Krogan in the series. Forget that some of the NPC's look like they have Bell's Palsy, don't try and do every quest and ignore the criminal lack of alien species and enjoy the second best Mass Effect game. Oh, and yell a big FUCK YOU to EA for not giving us closure on

    The Division 2

    Well, this looks delicious on max settings on PC. Only done the - tutorial I guess? - and it feels just like the original (in a good way). My eyes rolled out the back of my head at a bit in the intro movie. May as well have had a 'paid for by the NRA' slapped across it, it was so unsubtle in its pro gun message Can't wait to get stuck in properly later. One small worry, and I can't remember if it was the same in the original beta but the map looks quite small and a big section is OOB. If that doesn't get removed for the main game I can see a lot of complaints because it looks like a fraction of the size of the NY map if not.

    This is available to pre-load now on PC. I didn't receive a code but had signed up for the beta ages ago and the game is ready to go in my uplay library. 42gb in size (PC, no idea about console).

    Where where this team against Bournemouth, AFC Wimbledon and Wolves? Also, how shit are officials going to get before something gets done. One goal so offside you could have landed a B52 in the area Milner was off, plus if Origi had scored that last chance, he was miles offside too and the flag stayed down. Shocking. Still, perversely pleased that Liverpool have only scored 5 in their two games against us this season, unlike the 8 last year

    First film seen at the cinema

    I don't remember a second (I was never allowed to stray too far up the hill) but the one I remember was on part way up the hill on the left in front of Peabody Estate as if you were facing the station. This is well over 30 years ago though so memory may be fuzzy!

    First film seen at the cinema

    I can't remember specifically but it was either The Dark Crystal, Ghostbusters or Return of the Jedi. It would have been at the cinema (an Odeon? @Camel ) the bottom of St John's Hill next to Clapham Junction.

    Fret ye not Liverpool fans. We're proper bin juice at the moment. Any team that has to put Masuaku at LB and Ogbonna at CB is going to get everything it deserves. We have the mother of all injury crisis' (as we seem to every year) but your title aspirations most certainly are not going to hit a bump tonight. I think we'll do well to keep it to a three goal deficit. I'm going for 0-4

    @Boothjan The first was a pen all day every day. Masuaku has been doing shit like that all season. Him and Ogbonna the octopus average around a pen between them every game they play. The second wasn't a pen IMO as Jota went to ground very easily. If you give that, you give the one at the other end where Coady (?) clipped Antonio. Re. Arnautovic @Plissken he apparently has a hobbie that costs him lots and lots of money (nothing substance based, more the other disease that footballers are unfortunately very susceptible to) and thus wanted to increase his wages. Pellegrini wanted to make an example of him (squad not happy with his antics either) but Sullivan gave him a new incentive based contract with the understanding he can leave in the summer if the clubs price is met. This has understandably pissed the squad off even more as he has been rewarded for throwing his toys out the pram. Now everyone is pissed off. Players at Arnie, manager at the board and supporters at all of them. Our season ended when we threw the cup game to concentrate on the league and now it'll be a case of finishing between 10-15th (if we're lucky). Great. Hooray.

    There are mounting problems in the squad. Years of chronic under investment means that the back up players just aren't good enough (Ogbonna and Masuaka are both complete liabilities and as for Carroll..) coupled to our quite horrific injury list which has taken at least five first team players (Lanzini, Reid, Balbuena, Wilshere, Sanchez, Yarmalenko..it goes on) and the black cloud surrounding the sordid Arnautovic saga and what that has done for squad morale and well, typical West Ham I'm afraid I'm genuinely worried about what Liverpool are going to do to us on Monday.
