    Great CD Revival

    I miss the days when physical media ruled the roost and you could find some actual bargains in the HMV sale, maybe even take a chance on something because it was just a couple of quid and find a real gem. Then the stupid internet spoiled* it all by making everything available at all times. *it didn't really, did it?
  2. This is good stuff. It's worth keeping an eye out when Lidl do their "italian week" as they also tend to have this block type mozzarella but at a much better price.
  3. I’m intrigued enough by the story but not enjoying the game so might just watch the cut scenes on YouTube. Never done this before but I can’t see myself sticking with it. Sorry everyone. Will my forum access be revoked for this crime against Kojima?
  4. Have you ever wondered if you're playing a different game to everybody else? I'm not feeling this at all and have had to force myself to get where I am which admittedly isn't far (most of the way through chapter 2). I agree with the sentiment about presentation and atmosphere but by god, it's dull. That's one issue with subscription services vs retail I guess. If I'd paid £50 for it I'd be sticking it out but as it's just one game of many on PS+ I'm tempted to accept it's not for me, skip it and move on. Is it a slow starter that gets good after a few hours?
  5. As much as I love the wet mozzarella that comes in a bag of juice, I've found that it's the major contributor to a soggy pizza. You can go the grated route which still works well but if you want to stick to the wetter stuff, slice it up an hour or two before you need it and leave the slices sandwiched between kitchen roll to soak up the unneeded juice. Change the kitchen roll a couple of times too as it's surprising just how much moisture comes out of it. Your pizzas look good. We tend to stick to the standard Ooni dough recipe which has been good so far but I do fancy trying something different like a beer dough or poolish base.
  6. If a Frasier reboot starts with Daphne's entire family going over a cliff in a bus I'd watch it.
  7. "I AM THE SPIDER" plus Leo Sayer's famous fall from a treadmill. An absolute Saturday night classic
  8. If old PS+ is now the Essential plan, has there been any mention of how many additional games will be added to the Premium plan and classics library per month? The classics library is especially underwhelming, hoping to see it get some attention but I'm honestly expecting a dripfeed of shovelware.
  9. There's a mad conspiracy theory that they're leaving it in the bank to rake in $$$$ interest when in reality it's just shrinking in value as inflation goes crazy. Sadly, supply chain issues are a genuine issue and have been for a couple of years now, especially with semiconductors. Something like this will be stuck in a queue with massive companies like Ford, GM and Tesla in it so they'll be very low priority for the chip makers.
  10. I got the point where you meet Guillermo del Toro and have absolutely no idea what is going on. Does it make sense at some point? I'm guessing it might never.
  11. I thought Spidey would be the remastered PS5 version but I can only find PS4. Miles Morales is PS5 though. The store front is rubbish, even simple filters for platform would make a massive difference. Anyone tried Mr Driller? Why is it so loud, almost to the point of distortion? Also, I can't decide if my memory is playing tricks on me. I tried a couple of PS1 games (Mr Driller and Tekken 2) and the intro videos have seriously crazy MPEG compression, I don't remember them being that bad quality back back in the day but maybe they always were and my OLED just highlights the issue.
  12. There's a lot of variations on this but this is my favourite of them. An amazing album and classic artwork: Danger Doom - The Mouse and the Mask: Other obvious one that that deserves praise: A less obvious cover from a very obvious artist, I love the artwork on this: I'm a big fan of simple, geometric artwork: Nadia Struiwigh – Lenticular. All the covers on CPU Records are along the same theme: Plaid - Scintilli: Tycho - Awake: 808 State - 90: Bonus 12" single from the days before Anton Corbijn took over the design work:
  13. I didn't hear the full stream the other night but my CD has now turned up, I'm listening to Mind Maps 3 and it's brilliant. A couple of beers and chilling out to FSOL is a great way to spend an evening.
  14. I'm another that moved to the mighty 55" CX OLED. Previous TV was a 720P 42" plasma that had served me well for many years, all the way through PS3, PS4 and early PS5 days. I'm still impressed how good it looks. Horizon FW, even in performance mode is just jaw droppingly good.
  15. Not a chance. FSOL are pretty prolific, I can't think of many other artists who release as much quality stuff as they do.
  16. Nice one, I've got 1 & 2 on CD so the completist in me means I have to buy vol 3.
  17. Have I missed it? Can't find a link to buy it on the FSOL or Touched Music bandcamp. They're livestreaming now, is it releasing straight after?
  18. I'm British and have very little knowledge of the partition and found it useful. As with every other shitstorm we've left around the world during various occupations, it's never really been taught in schools as they're too busy teaching about crop rotation and the spinning jenny. edit - Should add that this is the most fun Marvel have been for a while.
  19. "I remember when I was a young executive for this company. I used to call the old man funny names - Iron Butt, Boner... once I even called him... House hole"
  20. I knew this was due soon but hadn't realised it was out today. Loved it - Fun from start to finish and a real Scott Pilgrim/Spiderverse vibe to it. Unlike most Marvel releases, I don't know who the big baddy is going to be and I'm quite glad there might be some actual surprises in store. As for the review bombing, I don't know why anyone takes the viewer scores on aggregate sites seriously anymore when all they seem to do is collect and amplify the opinions of toxic arseholes. What a strange world we live in.
  21. He's the Broker in Guardians of the Galaxy too On a similar note, Bomber was in all three Indiana Jones movies (and played two characters in the first one). Shame they never made a fourth movie.
  22. I don't take a lot of screenshots but some games just warrant it.
  23. I've got an LG OLED too. I finished it weeks ago but am still mopping up side missions etc. I went back to Plainsong today (no spoilers) and was gobsmacked at how good things looked so why wait? It's absolutely gorgeous, even in performance mode which has the advantage of being silky smooth. I really don't think you'll be lamenting the lack of pixels.
