  1. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I thought Ben was a pretty good Bombcast host the other week. He had a specific job to do and it made him cut out some of his random bullshit. I've still got patience for the guy but it's getting on for a year now and I still couldn't really point to anything he has been able to improve. He did his "friends we make along the way" joke for at least the fourth time on something last week. Still not at all funny.

    Have a bit of DIY punk: Skinny Girl Diet: The Lovely Eggs:
  3. Concerts - general discussion and experiences

    Saw Boris supporting a Belgian metal band called Amenra last weekend. Boris covered several genres within their set, as expected. I struggled to get in to it more than I thought I might as I was always more of a fan of their more structured punky stuff and they only played two tracks of that. Far too much of it was just far too slow, even for doom metal, they did a new romantic interlude for a bit too. That said, the opening act was a cellist with a sequencer and she was bloody superb. Her name was Jo Quail, the only thing I can find on YouTube close to what she was playing is: She was able to change her set to account for the fact she was supporting metal bands though and produced some absolutely brilliant stuff. Up next for me is HandMade Festival in Leicester, which I'm incredibly excited about.

    The Fall really had a ridiculous number of good songs and continued to put out great tunes on a yearly basis. Damn shame.

    The amount of abuse Abby gets on social media far outweighs that of other team members and a lot of it is pretty appalling. I can 100% understand why she doesn't open herself up to that. It's up to her managers to gauge audience feedback and to use it to help her develop where they see fit.

    The most positive about a game they've been in this year's discussion is Cuphead. I'd expect it to be to three. I've enjoyed this year's much less too. East and West have diverged quite a bit over the last twelve months and this set of podcasts is showing how they don't really gel anymore. Best music, best Wolfenstein moment, hottest mess and biggest disappointment have been the only discussions worth listening to I think.

    The GOTY podcasts are obscenely long. The shortest episode this year is almost as long as the previous longest ever episode. Fast forward fingers at the ready.

    This wee's UPF is top-tier, unsurprisingly. Abby in VR was great.

    I thought Greg Miller was pretty good on the Bombcast, he was well-informed and complemented the group well. He utterly does my head in on E3 Live shows and I've found what I've seen of Kinda Funny to just be painful so I'd half a mind to skip the episode but the Wolfenstein and Mario chat was really good.

    Robo Recall is bloody marvellous. Lucky's Tale is better than it gets given credit for too, I think. Just search for them on the store and they should already be listed as 'purchased'. Superhot VR and Rez Infinite are my most played.
  13. The Man Utd Thread

    It's an 'Of Mice and Men' reference.
  14. At the Drive-in Reunited

    Almost £50 all in. Daaaaamn. As much as I'd like to see them and DFA1979 on the same bill I will just have to stick with the Royal Blood support slot. Gig ticket prices are really shooting up at the minute. Glad the UK punk scene is having a mini golden age.
  15. Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League Draft 2017/2018 - draft date Tue 8 Aug 9pm and 10pm

    I was able to pick up both Gross and Sanches in our league 2 this week, hopefully that works out. I think the key thing is to keep an eye out for defenders to rotate depending on opposition and take a chance on an in-form midfielder or two to build around the established core players.
