    Best New Music of 2018

    Completely in love with the Swedish band Viagra Boys at the minute. Just followed up some really promising EPs with a fantastic album. For fans of Idles, Fucked Up and Protomartyr. 'Sports' is my favourite track.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I did love the utter disgust that Kassandra had for that dude who was playing for both sides in the war to keep it going even though I do exactly the same thing. Get Sparta down to zero in one of their zones and then go to bat for them in the conquest battle.

    24 hours of drumming. The man is incredible. Finished on Freebird and got a PB for it.

    Saw them Saturday night in Nottingham. Remain an exceptionally tight live band, as long as you like their guitar and drums stuff. Firestarter was an awkward fit they've reworked it again and it just fell flat. Nothing off Always Outnumbered... Which was a shame as Girls would've given the set me variety. That light show is astonishing. At one point Maxim came out into the crowd just near us about 1/3 of the way back but no one noticed him.

    I really enjoyed that podcast. Jeff as a video game historian is always a joy. Particularly enjoyed older bits I wasn't a listener for. Abby's contribution was so cringe worthy. I guess it was meant to come across as jokey but it just felt contemptuous.

    Yeah, it's on the non-subscriber feed only. It's a 4 hour 'best of' the first 10 years. https://www.giantbomb.com/podcasts/were-sorry-ten-years-of-the-giant-bombcast/1600-2495/

    The regions autolevel so should always maintain a bit of challenge. Explanation here : https://www.gamerevolution.com/guides/439933-assassins-creed-odyssey-region-levels-do-they-scale

    Into the Breach - #perfectforswitch

    I found Steel Judokas the most difficult. Damage output is very limited and it just never seemed like I could manipulate the enemies into hurting each other the way it was intended. It was largely a case of surviving until you get the upgrades; their artillery could be devastating.

    Go into your quiver in the inventory, hover over the type of arrow you want and then press the corresponding button for 'make 1' or 'make max'.

    The answer is yes on both. Their phone customer service people were very helpful. Now the owner of a shiny One X.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    I know the website and stores are different with Game but I've a load of stuff to trade-in that says 'store only' on the website and I want to upgrade to an X. Can I use store credit online or get a similar package to the 440 one above in store?

    What's the origin of inverted Y axis controls?

    Inverted y axis makes perfect sense, as long as you insert the x axis as well. If you don't then you should probably just admit you're broken. The origin of it would be early 90s pc games I think. A lot of the first full 3d games were flight sims, stuff like descent or 3rd person games like Magic Carpet. Duke and Quake came after a couple of years of those.
  13. My top 10 games:

    1) Hitman: Blood Money

    2) Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

    3) Mario 64

    4) Civilization IV

    5) Factorio

    6) Transport Tycoon

    7) Dungeon Keeper

    8) Half Life 2

    9) The Witcher 3

    10) Mass Effect 2


    The few things I know more than most people about: UK education, maths, ornithology, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    6 changes. Jesus Christ. This is going to be another mess isn't it.

    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    I normally ignore the pricing meta game but it has been particularly crazy this year with stuff like Sanchez dropping 0.2 for missing 1 match, despite returns in the previous one. Have been keeping an eye on FPLstatistics to watch out for the people about to change.
