  1. It's 2020, we should be able to buy a game once and play it on any platform we want. With the same **save game**.
  2. I generally avoid reading books because I have this little problem of not going to sleep until I've finished them. But I feel like I'm missing so much so I've started on the Witcher series. Really enjoying the first book - it being made up of short stories really helps with the addiction problem.
  3. My kids absolutely loved Castle In The Sky and my daughter (4) liked Kiki. I seem to be missing all of the other Ghibli films, there's no Totoro, Naussica, Spirited Away.. only Porcco Rosso and Tales of Earthsea.
  4. I started playing Witcher 3 after watching the series and am hooked. At first I found it really morbid but on once you get used to the systems and have missions not involving dead people it gets great. It's shockingly mature too, totally unexpected from a game.
  5. Replace Dirty Dancing with something like Under Siege / Lethal Weapon / Die Hard and switch the genders and you get the same point. It's not at all insulting to either gender; these films are targeted towards a specific audience. Of course there'll be some overlap with other audiences, but the main groups are pretty clear.

    Manga

    It's excellent, the story is going to get way better from here on out too
  7. WoT has a really interesting premise and the first book is good (at least as an audiobook) but the story starts to drag like crazy and then the author unfortunately died before he finished the actual story. I gave up after three/four of the books because they spent 95% of the time walking in circles. If properly condensed however then I'd love to see the world realized on film.
  8. Finished it now. It's set up for a 5+ season run, right? I really hope that it proves popular enough to get it with this kind of budget. The way this has been adapted gives me hope that someone might be able to make something from the Wheel of Time series.
  9. My son keeps destroying them by dropping the console, the impact really damaged them. The sticks themselves cost $2 (or $5 with the tools) on aliexpress and are easy to replace - just remove a few screws and clip them in. There are videos on YouTube showing the whole process.
  10. Read the commodore book, without Chuck then things would have been very different. He (and his colleagues) bought computing to the masses.

    Anime

    Bleach turns to rubbish once the Aizen arc is over. The Promised Neverland is well worth watching and My Hero Academia is a blast (well the source material for both is excellent and the animation looks great on youtube).
  12. I watched it over the weekend, it was so compelling that I missed a lot of sleep I know that some people were negative, but for me it was the best show of the year. There was such a sense of dread and wonder being hinted at through the season, with the political machine moving in ways which are clearly preparing for some epic space opera stuff over the next few seasons. It reminded me a lot of Halo 1 for some reason. Now I really want to read the books, only the Amazon reviews are saying that the next book is the worst of the series
  13. Is that a new season of Umbrella Academy? The first season was excellent! Expanse S4 is out on Friday

    RIP Bob Wakelin

    Wow, I never knew that those covers were all from the same artist. I loved the NZ Story, Rainbow Islands and Batman artwork. They have a special place in my nostalgic heart.
