  1. I enjoyed BOP ft Harley Quinn but, more importantly, I know about half a dozen women who really liked it, and felt it spoke to them in ways that other comic blockbusters didn't. It seems both savvy and timely to hand the reins of a franchise like this to a woman, and see what she does with it. I hope she doesn't just end up playing Jacqueline Sparrow though.
  2. I already had most of the base gravy ingredients in, so it didn't really cost me much. Plus, for £30, you could probably make about 10 batches, each lasting about 10 curries. It all pans out. As far as pre-cooking the meat, it seems to be the secret to perfect meat/sauce consistency, and the pre-cooked meat tends to be somewhat marinated too. Not to mention it means you can make most curries in ten minutes. I'd probably suggest trying it yourself to compare, but the pre-cooked chicken per Al's recipe is cooked with ginger, garlic and base gravy, and it seems to offer a flavour I haven't been able to match with cooking in the curry pan. I don't think most BIR curries seem to benefit from adding extra time to stew, burn, or separate.
  3. For years, I assumed that my unwillingness to use a half kilo of ghee was the reason my curries weren't 'right'. Now I'm entirely convinced it was the base gravy all along. As well as pre-cooking the meat.
  4. Yeah, I caught it. It's enjoyable, despite some daftness. It feels like a lot of the Ibiza debauchery has gone through a middle-aged Mills & Boon lens, but the cast are entertaining if not likeable. But, at a time when it's entirely necessary, it felt like I was spending some time in a sunny foreign locale with them.
  5. Ran through this pretty quickly the other day. It's an excellent little diversion. Like a lot of my favourite games, it's a little holiday, and captures a charm and wonder that so many other games fail to. Will be keeping an eye on the dev for sure.
  6. I'm looking forward to this a lot, but I'll be playing on Steam. I hope it does really well. Revolution stuff is very special.
  7. I have enjoyed many of his films, but after his prolific boasts about his sex life, I recall reading some scurrilous rumours about him potentially being one of the more active casting couch predators in Hollywood. Struggling to find any right now, but I'll certainly hold my fanfare for just a moment while the dust settles. We might hear some things soon enough.
  8. Took me a minute to find these - weren't to be found in my usual places! It's a lot of fun, even if the 'chopped into 5-10 min segments' is a bit jarring. I also love me a horror anthology, and it would be great if they made it to all 50 states. But I can't imagine Quibi lasting that long...
  9. Even though they've been called 'puzzle games' my whole life, I don't consider Tetris, Puzzle Bobble, Klax, Columns, Puyo Puyo etc to be puzzles at all. If anything, they're... 'Reaction games'? When I think of puzzle games now, and they're probably my favourite kinds of games, I include compilations like Picross and Slitherlink, the phone-driven evolutions of point & click like room escape games, and absolutely games like the Witness.
  10. It's a very good show, but the guy playing Tom always seems like he's acting in a different show altogether. And it's not a better one. Any word on a new series?
  11. I recently played through the Monkey Island 2 remake, and Curse of Monkey Island, and I've got the itch again. And I'm looking for undiscovered recommendations. I know that Point and Click has, to an extent been superseded by more tactile, Myst-ish first-person games like The Room, Faraway, Agent A etc. Or, for some, the Telltale games. But I'm looking for full-on, traditional style Point & Click games from say.... the last decade. Extra points if they have the humour of a Lucasarts or a Revolution game. I wasn't the biggest fan of Ben There, Dan That, and Time Gentlemen Please as I didn't enjoy the core game mechanics, though they are well written. I've played Broken Age and Thimbleweed Park too. Can anyone speak for any of these? Lair of the Clockwork God The Journey Down VirtuaVerse The Darkside Detective Karma Incarnation 1 The Uncertain The Inner World The Low Road Masochisia Memoranda Or anything else... I know I could just read Steam reviews. But where's the fun in that?

    My Aliexpress clone pro controller arrived today. Does anyone know how to get them to work wirelessly with Windows? I can get it to work via USB cable, but it would be ideal for my laptop. I read a comment suggesting that it has a separate X360 emulation mode for bluetooth on pc, since Pro controllers don't natively support PC.
  13. Can I watch this anywhere other than the phone app? Is the format suitable for a big screen?
  14. I agree. My 7 year old isn't technically old enough for the age certificate, but he's forever gutting animals and gnawing the flesh from household pets. He's even asking about what human viscera looks like. I think he might be a doctor one day!
