  1. Longest in the Premier League era. Joint longest overall.

    Google Stadia

    After what was announced at Gamescom are people more or less excited by Stadia? Maybe I'll be proven wrong but at the moment its big hook still seeems to be that it's Google and that it'll be active before Xcloud and whatever enhancements Sony are planning for PSNow under their MS partnership. I'm not shitting on the idea of streaming games before anyone accuses me of that but I'm not getting excited by what Google has shown so far. Is there exciting exclusive content on the way? When will it be shown? Why isn't it there for launch? Surely I'm not the only one asking those questions.
  3. Finished the series last night and enjoyed the vast majority of it. The first episode was a real attention grabber as the basic setup was put in place and even though later episodes didn't have the same level of shock value they all maintained a real edge which I enjoyed. I know the grim nature of the world should put this series more in line with the DC films but I ended up feeling it was a bit more Marvel-esque as it maintained a healthier humour balance.

    I bought a Svart back in April to replace an old Krups burr grinder and I've been really happy with it. The grind adjustment seemed to have a sticking point at first and I found the bean container hard to remove in order to wash it once I first purchased the machine but once I managed to release it I have no trouble since. The container for the grounds is the only real negative. Instead of a simple bin its got little grooves on it which means that it can be slightly awkward to empty. Its not a deal breaker by any means but I figured its worth mentioning. The noise isn't bad and it only takes around 10 seconds to grind enough for the Aeropress.
  5. I reckon I've played at least 62.4 hours of Dig Out! on the PC at work just through having to kill five or ten minutes each day while waiting for some test to finish or a reply to an email etc. It's a terrible game and I've hit a brick wall in terms of progress as it'll take an age to grind out the currency I need to progress or I have to start spending money. Its an easy way to kill a few minutes so I'll just keep playing it regularly though.
  6. Has the toxic reaction ever worked? We've seen it so many times since gamergate and the Feminist Frequency Kickstarter but I can't think of one situation where it's been successful for those spewing bile. I read the post from the Ooblets devs announcing the Epic deal and thought it was a bit try hard but I wasn't enraged by it. I simply can't fathom reading it and deciding that the appropriate reaction is death threats and unbridled rage.
  7. Laurens and Gab Marrcotti are going to be doing a weekly podcast for ESPN next season so I doubt either will be contributing much to any of the Totally Football shows.
  8. Newcastle have announced that Benitez isn't signing a new contract and will leave the club this week.
  9. Showing someone a picture of an obvious fire hazard you've set up in your house seems like a dumb way of proving a point.
  10. The E3 podcasts with other games journalists always make me appreciate the GB crew more. Maybe they are just drunk but some of them should never be handed a microphone.
  11. Is it on special offer somewhere or just a secondhand buy?
  12. Like a lot of people have already said I'd be happy with more DLC for 8. I wouldn't go down the route of bringing back all the tracks from previous games though, Mario Kart Wii in particular had a lot of bad tracks that deserve to stay in the past. -Better single player content would be nice. They did some basic challenge mode stuff in one of the DS games but never expanded on it. -Team Race Mode. Select three characters before the race, one for each lap so that when you cross the line it changes out your driver. Offer bonus points for the fastest individual character lap but weight it according to how many people picked them. So being the fastest of three Luigis is worth less than being the fastest of 11 Marios. Uncommon characters get an overall speedboost though. I'm explaining this poorly. -Cappy as a weapon. Swap position with whoever you hit. Can be thrown backwards as well. - Elimination Races. Take the coin strips from the F-Zero tracks and layer the on to existing tracks. Each contestant starts the race with three balloons. 10 coins=One balloon. Offer bonus points for eliminating your opponents over the course of a race. I'm tired.

    This isn't a Stadia criticism but I hate that phrase when I see it used regarding Xbox Gold and PS Plus games. They're not free, they are something I'm paying for.
  14. That first bit of dialogue is a war crime.
  15. I'm going to give it to Microsoft based purely on Flight Simulator. I have no idea why but the trailer for that just connected with me in a way no game trailer has for years. In the space of 90 seconds I went from "oh that looks neat" to "give it to me now". I have zero personal history with flight sims but that instantly became my most wanted game after that awesome Ape Escape game Sony are cooking up for the PS5 launch (a man can dream right?). Valve lost E3. Epic announced some more exclusives and MS brought Gamepass to PC along with a new PC app/store that seems to be well received. Looking forward to seeing how Valve respond.
