  1. Due to an unfortunate accident I am currently off work. With time to kill, I thought I would revisit some of my old consoles. The one I've played the most is, you've guessed it, the Gamecube. I've cheated slightly as I'm playing the games using the WiiU and Nintendont/USBX Loader. The output is still gloriously colourful using this method and it all works flawlessly. Games I've played are as follows; Super Mario Sunshine - This is as far removed as Nintendo have gone from the usual Mario universe. It still holds up well. I had completely forgotten most of the game, so I'm still uncovering areas and little touches. The controls were troublesome on the Gamecube and continue to be an issue with the Classic Controller, but I'm still having a blast with it and slowly getting used to it. Mario Golf Toadstool Tour. - Again holds up well. A bit too easy, as I got a hole in one on the 2nd hole. But it's so pick up and play, classic Nintendo. Colourful, clear visuals. Metroid Prime - This remains as masterful as when I booted it up using my Freeloader disc all those years ago. Fantastic atmosphere and sound design. The perfect mix of shooting, adventure and geeky history. Retro hit the jackpot with this update of an already outstanding 2d series and made it even better. The use of the different weaponry and tools at your disposal to open up previously explored areas is taken a step further to make a tour de force of a game. I think it was the best game of that generation and it still sits firmly in my top ten games of all time. I honestly think it holds up just as well today as it did back then. So yeah, the Gamecube is getting a lot of love from me again!
  2. What a bizarre poster.
  3. Wow. Like you said, that so obvious now you mention it. I loved Gary Busey and his son is just a younger reboot. Having not watched the first two series, I really enjoyed this. A huge nostalgia trip for me as I would have been roughly the same age as the protagonists. Man, the 80's.
  4. Magic cinema. I really belly laughed at some points. Touching, sentimental too. It fits in perfectly with the three other films as well. A fitting finale to a fantastic series of films.

    Fantastic performance by the Cure. Smith's voice is fantastic.

    Glastonbury 2019

    Just watched a recap of Glastonbury. I've come to the conclusion that Stormzy is not my thing.
  7. Wow. That looks so good, it looks like it could be a fake. Very impressive stuff!
  8. It's still not a patch on the Clarkson, May & Hammond era. Flintoff gets everywhere. He's like shit in a field, to quote Jim Royle. He really is the definition of "doing anything for a pound note", just like Scrotum Faced, Saggy Chopped, Bagpuss look a like Harry Redknapp.
  9. I've never watched black mirror before. The Rllmuk hive mind have a hard on for Charlie Brooker and as my girlfriend has Netflix, we gave the latest series a spin. The first one about the virtual video game was funny. Was it meant to be? The second one Smithereens was actually quite good. Is Charlie Brooker going to be like Stuart Lee, where I don't quite see what the hook is?
  10. Just watched the last episode again. That opening scene is so powerful. Haunting music, happy people, juxtaposed by Dyatlov striding towards the Power Plant, as the camera pulls out too see the monster on the horizon. Tremendous stuff!
  11. Awesome. Best TV drama I've ever seen. Spellbinding stuff.
  12. Well, that was grim, but awesome. Those hospital scenes were terrifying. Haven't seen TV as good as this for quite a while!
  13. If this is the only criticism we can find, you know it's top tier TV
