  1. Wordle 210 3/6 Yeah Boy. It’s gonna be a good weekend.
  2. You get a point if you take less guesses that your opponent. No points for a tie. Ties (usually 4 guesses) are common but forces you to think hard and go for the three.
  3. I’ve got a nice competition going with my wife on this. I’m 3-1 up. We have a bit of this going on…
  4. That’s probably right. Maybe a 7. It’s a really good fun arcade racer but there’s not a lot of depth to it. We’ve really been enjoying it with the family over Christmas in mp. Dinosaur racing a flying saucer bumper to bumper. Yes please.
  5. 4 chapters in. I’m not a big fan of Marvel but I think this might be one of the most fun and impressive solo adventure games I’ve ever played. The script and character representation is so good.
  6. Flipping heck. I just bought most of these having popped in after getting myself a new kindle for a treat before Christmas. A new pile of shame has been built up already!
  7. I nabbed Shenmue 3 for free on Epic Thursday I think. Then Neon. Then Remnant. They’re also doing their endless £10 vouchers again. Jett for £7.
  8. I believe their new rule is that ANY game can be picked. Whether it came out this year or not. Obviously picking a game that didn’t come out this year runs the risk of not getting through the rounds however I suspect Pirates Life will be seen as enough of an upgrade to get it through. I don’t think it will though as only Sean likes it! Unless, shenanigans!

    Thank you for taking the time to write that. I don't remember getting told about the healing items but I probably missed it and was treating it too much like a point and click adventure and forgetting its RPG elements.

    Sounds like I may just have had some bad luck. Will try again as it’s clearly a very accomplished video game.

    Interesting take because I have a similar thing that’s really fucked me off. I started playing last night as it’s been on my must play list for ages. I was not sucked in straight away because it takes quite a long time to get through the scenes because of all the dialogue. However after a while I started getting into it and I was enjoying the free form dialogue and clearly it’s brilliant written. I was playing my character as a bit of a 70’s wanker so saying slightly antagonistic things and being a bit of a prick. Still with a bit of balance. I saved early on but then got into a conversation in the same area as boozy which very promptly and seemingly without any real build up caused me to have a break down and end my game. Unfortunately I had not saved for about an hour and have apparently lost all my progress. WTF? I don’t recall any prompt to save often and IF you can die by saying the wrong thing then how is that encouraging you to truly role play and if that’s a game decision then surely it needs to have a more robust auto save option so it doesn’t waste your time? I am really debating whether I go back and try again. I want to but do I need to save before every conversation in case I just die because the conversation has taken a weird turn? Felt like a choose your own adventure book where I had forgotten to keep my finger in the page.
  12. Watched this tonight, came here to post thoughts and found this summed up my thoughts perfectly. Tedious and ponderous are the best words. But yes, clearly very well made and pretty. It didn’t hold my attention at any point. I struggled to get through it all. Best bit was the ending… *Wizardofoz Scarecrow.jpg*
  13. It tells you straight away on the plaque as soon as you spawn. Find the other plaques to find out more about the demo. It’s a tech demo. An impressive looking world you can walk / drive around in. That’s it.
  14. Thanks for that. I can definitely see the appeal and clearly I can see how the finding them in the 80’s thing would be a big thing. Having watched a bunch of the extras I am getting round to a 2nd viewing. I may do the commentary first. The cast is great and I loved what they did with the special effects. Music too. Weirdly It’s growing on me already. I have Big trouble, and prince of darkness lined up never having seen either before!
  15. Awise from your grave… Help me out. I watched Escape from New York yesterday evening knowing very little about it except I that it’s a cult classic with B movie stylings. And of course that it has influenced many other things. But I’m not sure I got what’s good about it. It’s an interesting setting and there are a bunch of really weird characters and things like the car with chandeliers on the front. It had a slightly mad comic book styling. I expected snake to be an amazing character but I found him a bit underwhelming? His moodiness level was strong but his line delivery? Not so much. There were large sections of nothing happening and despite the fun chasing stuff towards the end there wasn’t a lot of action. I promise I’m not shitting on it for the sake of it because it seems to be such a sacred piece of cinema and I want to appreciate it. I feel like I’m missing some context about its style or it’s making or maybe just it’s brilliance. I’ve not seen a lot of Carpenter stuff but I loved The Thing for its creepiness and Halloween for its horror. I just wasn’t sure how to approach this. Any advice? Was also interested to read carpenters comments that Escape from LA is in every way a better movie and he always felt that it just wasn’t accepted in the same way because of timing factors. Would be interested to watch that as somebody who (right now) can’t find the love for the first one and see how a more modern update compares.
