    http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Football-News/2018/Mar/manchester-united-applies-to-establish-a-professional-womens-team-in-super-league-tier-2.aspx United finally looking to put together a women's team!
  2. Female-fronted alt/indie rock

    I thought they had been! My brain must have just inserted them into the list.

  4. Overwatch - Brigitte!

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to trying her out. I mostly play Lucio and Orisa, so a support/tank hybrid seems right up my street.

    Dunno about the cups, but in the league it was against City.
  7. Someone should make a Battle Royale game

    It'd never catch on.
  8. Splatoon 2

    What does the Splatoon menu in the online app actually do? That's where you can do any of the party stuff with people on your friends list (it's a bit of a faff, aye). It also has your stats and gives you info on which maps are in the current rotation. There's a SplatNet shop (last icon on the bottom menu) that has clothes, shoes, and hats for sale. They look the same as ones available in normal shops but have different main abilities to what that item usually has. They're only available for 12 hours and new things are added every 2 hours. I think I've found the campaign mode by going down a drain is that right? Yeah, that's the single player. The hoard mode (when it's available in the schedule) is just up the ramp from there in that shop tucked away at the side. What's the best way to play; motion or not, handheld or docked? I've been playing with motion controls in both and when I turned them off I found it more difficult to control with just the right stick, but motion controls are taking some getting used to also. Whichever you find best, really (Not the most helpful answer). I'm a big fan of the motion controls, same as in the first, but yeah, it takes a bit of adapting to. If/when they click they're ace. How do you do the sketches I keep seeing appearing in other players speech bubbles at the lobby/plaza area? There's a little postbox (I think) on the plaza where you can do that. Can you access all the lobbies/modes/shops etc. from the menu or do you need to physically explore and find them? You can access the different shops from the menus but it just has lobby as a single option which takes you to the regular/ranked (unlocked at level 10) lobby screen. It feels strange for a Nintendo game in that it doesn't feel as handholdy as I expected. From the little I've played it feels really nice and I love the feel/aesthetic of the paint. The way you swim is a great mechanic and there's just something really satisfying about the paint itself. How do you get other guns and so on? You unlock them as you level up and you buy them from the gun shop
  9. Audible's free book gift feature

    Thought I might as well add some in: Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch (follow-up to The Lies of Locke Lamora from the first post) http://a.co/85VjRXD The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch (the third one) http://a.co/6mwFG9W The Complete Short Stories by JG Ballard (There's a *lot* and they're ace) http://a.co/7EbEyMP The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break by Steven Sherill (a odd book where the Minotaur is still knocking around and working in a Carolina rib house. A good listen) http://a.co/d5BA0NU
  10. Liverpool Football Club Thread

    Well that's ruined Liverpool's E3
  11. Splatoon 2

    The customisation sounds pretty in-depth.
  12. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    You've glossed over the most important part.
  13. I seem to be in the minority on this in that I thought it was terrible. I'm a big fan of the book but the script for this was really clunky. I had alarm bells the other day when the cast were trying to go "The Handmaid's Tale - feminist!? Tish and pschaw!" and kinda All Lives Matter-ing it. This seemed like a more polished version of the generic YA dystopian novels that got rushed to film after the success of The Hunger Games. Giving Offred a catchphrase felt a bit like there's a TV exec out there going "She could be the new Katniss!" and rubbing his hands together. The direction was really... off. I kinda get what they were going for with a lot of closeups to make it feel a bit oppressive, but then it ended up being about 90% close ups with a razor thin depth-of-field and it started to feel more like the director was showing off the nice lenses they had to play with. The Commander and Serena are weirdly casting as well. Serena was supposed to be someone Offred saw on TV growing up, but they've cast someone pretty much the same age as Moss, which really changes the dynamic of that relationship. And Joseph Fiennes is just... there. I had hopes for this as Atwood's involved in some capacity but I really don't see what the reviewers are seeing.
