  1. Another good month. There's absolutely no need to upgrade to Extra or Premium for me when there's so many good PSplus free games on the back burner. Along with the Mass Effect trilogy I've got Tony Hawks 1 & 2, Nioh 2 and Bioshock Infinite to get through. (Not to mention about 20 others that will probably throw up some good gaming hours like Hot Wheels and NFS).
  2. I know he's hardly flavour of the month/year/decade but I'm enjoying Save our Squad with David Beckham. It's more Jossy's Giants than Sunderland Till I Die but if you're like me and a sucker for football docs then this is well worth a watch.
  3. Thanks, I'd forgotten about that. 1998. If only it were remastered on Switch.
  4. Saw this today and it was fine. Much of it sort of washed over me, if you'll forgive the pun. The valediction for Chadwick Boseman was well done but I think that was largely its problem: it couldn't get out of his shadow. Also, as has been mentioned several times, it had a very thin plot when you break it down and needed to be tighter.
  5. I do like this game a lot, and have plans to go back to it after a 3 month break. It is the equivalent of overeating junk food though. (Arguably most Ubi open world games are).
  6. I wonder if the casting is down to the producers looking to increasingly appeal to a wider, and therefore American audience. If it isn't due to this then some of the casting decisions are atrocious.
  7. I gave this a try for an hour as it was free with PSPlus and was underwhelmed. The difference in difficulty between easy and normal is ridiculous. Easy: win every race. Normal: lose every race, unless you don't make a mistake on the last lap. Anyway, I was about to uninstall it but thought I would give it one more go last night. I'm now a fully paid up member of the Hot Wheels Fan Club. Something just clicked (playing it in normal) and I'm power sliding into corners and boosting out of them like a pro. I especially like the gravity and physics in this where you can find yourself going around a loop and fall upside down if you don't have the requisite momentum. Tremendous stuff.
  8. Barbarian This is great until the last 15 minutes when it feels like the writer and director suddenly lost 40 IQ points. Despite that I still found it completely engrossing and compelling. Definitely worth a watch if you prefer suspense to gore. 4/5
  9. I saw this a couple of weeks back and I can't remember who did it. It had that much of an impact on me.
  10. I've always considered this to be a great movie. Good shout.
  11. I'm enjoying The Mole, but you need to get past the first episode which is by far the worst and doesn't really capture the escape room-esque skulldugery at its peak. Shades of Survivor, Now Get Out of That and The Adventure Game.
  12. Prisoners I have been going to the cinema most weeks for the last couple of decades but had never heard of this. It came up in some random facebook feed as an underground classic that should get more love. It is brutal and captivating and to my mind a response to Guantanamo. Available now on Netflix, though you will have to search for it. 4/5
  13. With Dicey Dungeons I can get my head around all the characters except the Witch. Something about the spellbook makes life hard. Using a die up just to cast a spell is wasteful. Any tips from those who've played it?
  14. Dicey Dungeons is at an all time low of £1.34. I've played the first three characters and it's fun yet relaxing. Not too challenging. Like a kindergarten Slay the Spire. Recommended.
  15. Final thoughts on a terrific series.
  16. If the instigating incident with the flash drive had been handled much better then what followed would have been swallowed more readily. I defy anyone not to watch that scene without shouting out "what the fuck, as if!" I did enjoy Tennant's desperation to find a route out and only digging himself a bigger hole as things escalated. But gee, you definitely had to leave your suspension of disbelief in the cellar.
  17. Watched all 15 episodes in two days and really enjoyed it. That Wrexham vs Dover game was the highlight. Itching to google what happens next in Wrexham's story but I'm going to try wait till the next season lands. If you like this then definitely check out Sunderland Till I Die.
  18. This suffered from faulty logic, unbelievable scenarios and more plot holes than a rusty sheet of corrugated iron. I really enjoyed it. As mentioned, so much better than the generic police/terrorism dramas the BBC spew out. The daftest bit:
  19. Yes, me too. I fear if I have games 'on tap' I will end up dipping in to many rather than focusing on a few.
  20. Smile A deeply unpleasant film and I'd be surprised if there's a better horror outing this Halloween season. I don't really fall for jump scares but there's a couple of crackers in this. I'd have rated it a bit higher if the ending had been more impactful. 3/5
  21. I couldn't see a thread for this, apologies if already posted. Will definitely download Hotwheels so a good month for me. Is Injustice 2 any good single player?
  22. I reckon they could stretch it to two more because I loved how Stingray explained his moral dilemma via the workings of D&D.
  23. I had zero interest in this but I was over at my girlfriend's (she has Sky), and it was excellent. Matt Smith is killing it.
