    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I loved Origins and bought all the DLC. I was concerned this would be a reskin of that game but it sounds as though it's more than that with genuinely different gameplay elements. I'm not ready to dive into another AC marathon just yet but will no doubt be diving in later on after the inevitable Ubi patch fest has fixed all the stuff that will probably be broken on release.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    It was all pretty predictable though wasn't it? If you strip out all the Star Wars stuff it's a standard heist movie that's been done a million times before. It's not a bad film by any means but if you don't try and tell a very ambitious story the least you can do is make it feel coherent. It's basically just a space western but then Han Solo is a space cowboy so that's fine I suppose. Rogue One was a darker more ambitious story that was harder to tell. The result is more convoluted but it's also more interesting imo.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I thought this was OK, as others have said the Star Wars 'universe' was realised really well. However, I wish they'd left out some of the sillier fan service bits, which just detracted from the story by being implausible.

    Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    Yeah, they killed off too many characters for either this or something equally silly to happen in the next film. Still, Infinity War was bloody good. It made sitting through some of the crappier MCU films worth it.

    Do/did your parents game?

    It was a sunny summer's day. I was six years old and playing the garden. My father burst out of the house, 'I did it, I did it, I blew up the Deathstar!' 'Wow!' I said, 'What happened?' 'Fireballs came out of it and destroyed my ship.' he replied, his voice laced with indignation. It was then I realised that blowing up the Deathstar was just the beginning.

    RLLMUK Driveclub Weekly Time Trial Challenge 2018

    I didn't get a chance to have a go at the last challenge but I'm pleased with second place overall, it would probably have been third if Pearl Jam had been playing from the beginning! Anyway, it's been great fun so definitely up for doing another one -- thanks to Minion for organising. Couldn't agree more, Driveclub is a fantastic game and I'm sure if it had been released in the state it ended up in it would have been far more successful.

    I struggle to get in a groove on them. As far as I could tell Pearl Jam managed to drive the whole thing as well as he does a normal track, which is bloody fast!

    RLLMUK Driveclub Weekly Time Trial Challenge 2018

    I finally won one despite a bit of a crappy final sector: Luckily Spatular didn't pip me at the end! I know this track pretty well so doubt I spent much more than three hours in total. Generally I find it's best to spend about 45mins having a go and then do something else. It's also worth watching your replays to get an idea of where you can do better.

    A 38 is definitely possible but the darn weather is too nice!

    RLLMUK Driveclub Weekly Time Trial Challenge 2018

    Had a quick go as this week's challenge last night. The M4 really likes to get its ass out and has loads of torque so it's pretty fun around Skjolden, which is one of the best tracks in the game imo. Having said that, just like last week's challenge, there is a fucking annoying chicane in the final sector were getting a corner penalty or crashing is a million times more likely than actually being quick!

    Slow first sector though!

    I really need to dip into the 36s before I go away for the weekend!
