  1. I really like in Deadly Class how he explores teenage alternative sub-cultures through music, clothing, film and gaming. Especially how the message is that ultimately it's a load of old shite that doesn't make you better or happy Also, although it's a silly premise for a comic, it really resonated with me the whole 'feeling alone and detached, and trying to fit in' thing of being a teenager.
  2. Loved Deadly Class. Best comic I read last year. Got the whole lot for peanuts in a Humble Bundle, felt kind of guilty but I didn't realise it was going to be so good.

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part

    I really enjoyed it. Great songs and the jokes generally landed well for me and my son. End credits were incredible too. I sat transfixed. Really liked the gag.

    Nintendo Switch

    I play with my 4 and 6 year olds. Mario Kart is perfect, as there's a really good autopilot mode you can put them on that basically keeps them on the road at all times. Guacamelee is good as you can 'pull' player 2 along as you progress with difficult jumps etc. My kids loved being involved in the fighting bits. It's also got bright colours and sounds which engaged them. Mario Party is good too, both mine can play about 75% of the minigames without any real help. It's also really cute and they love the board game idea.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    I immediately thought of Doom (2016) too. In that, he oozes character even though you never hear him speak.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    Mass Effect is too new for this I'd imagine, but I secretly love it when you are playing an old game and it becomes apparent that the pervy devs have included a strip bar or night club complete with girls in skimpy outfits dancing. I stop what I'm doing and run straight in to see the the low polygon strippers and janky dance animations. Often complemented by some totally incongruous techno music. Sexy times indeed.

    Very solid overall. No Metroid trilogy though

    I love this stage of hype where people start to shout out random games they like from years ago, like it will ever fucking happen

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    Ummm, this is Star Wars we're talking about. It's not life and death.... it's far more important than that.
