  1. I had the same thing yesterday but with India, I could change back in the account settings on the website.

    I know he's struggled with knocks in these games but how's Duane Holmes been for you generally, Timmo? Always had bags of technical ability so everyone was rooting for him to kick on and become a regular but he really struggled with the physicality of the Championship when he was with us.

    Thank fuck for that, swapping places with Leeds really would've been the cherry on top of our season. Might put Radio Leeds on and drink in some Noel Whelan.
  4. Kind of amusing that when they squared up last season zombie Mountain must've been all 'This is most certainly not the time nor place, propriety demands restraint' but now he's just 'Must fight brother on sight, will kill master to do so'.

    Samurai Spirits/Shodown - 2019

    I'd sort of pencilled him in as my first one to really try as well. Messing around with V Special he seems to have a bit of everything: projectiles, a DP, a command grab, a rekka.. Plus the card stuff looks super cool.
  6. Was I the only one getting Highlander Kurgan vs Ramirez vibes from it? A big lad, a narrow staircase, apocalyptic shit going on in the background.. They should've had Brian May's face superimposed over the top and a little snippet of 'Who Wants to Live Forever' as they fell.
  7. I've not really been able to find too many good things to say about the show for a few years, but I actually thought that episode was the best one in a long time when taken in isolation. The trouble is that's obviously pretty much meaningless for a show like this, especially when everything's been set up so poorly and you've long ceased to care much about most of the characters or what actually happens in the end. It's hard not to see it as people going and making their episodes on their own without anyone caring enough to knit the details together into a cohesive whole. It couldn't be more clear that they just really want to be done with it and I guess if they've succeeded in anything it's in ensuring that a fair chunk of the audience feels exactly the same.

    They've been really fortunate that Glenn Murray's legs haven't gone in the past couple of years, the other forwards they've signed have been pretty poor. They probably would've been in the same sort of situation as us without him. It's an understandable move but it's hard not to feel sorry for Hughton, he seems a decent bloke and getting binned off after doing a good job seems to be his lot in life. No doubt he'll be in very high demand in the Championship.

    The Jazz Thread

    Just a word on that Ken Burns documentary, it's really well made as his stuff generally is and is definitely a good watch, but I'd take a fair amount of it with a pinch of salt. There's a hell of a lot of opinion presented as fact and since it's largely lead by the likes of Stanley Crouch and Wynton Marsalis it paints a very conservative, one-dimensional picture. Basically anything vaguely in the realms of fusion or the avant-garde is willfully ignored or quietly dismissed with the implication that it ruined 'real jazz'. It's been ten or so years since I watched it but IIRC even Coltrane pretty much gets 'Yeah, he did some good stuff with Miles and Monk then went off the rails'. Worth watching just for the Ellington worship alone though, really.

    Fighting Games that are not Street Fighter

    I've been playing the big new free to play contender on the block. High budget, very polished. Some details on the mechanics (lol) in this Twitter thread.
  11. I had a bit of a moan about Kiwami in the Yakuza thread recently, it's the only one I really wouldn't ever want to replay of those I've been through (0, Kiwami, 3, 4, 5). It has its good points, mostly if you're a fan already, but I could easily see it putting newcomers off the series so I can't help but wonder if it being on PS+ might do more harm than good in the long run. The trophy statistics are pretty grim, even by PS+ standards. IIRC only about 30% of players have even finished the second chapter. Start with 0, it's brilliant.
  12. I'm about 60 hours in and I didn't really fancy putting the modifiers on so I've been trying to keep things relatively interesting by being slack about upgrading equipment and avoiding a lot of fights to stay underlevelled. It's still been ridiculously easy and I hadn't come close to wiping out once, so I wasn't really sure if I'd gone about tailoring the difficulty the right way. Then I got to That.. Is a difficulty spike . The game is so thoughtfully crafted in most regards that it makes you wonder how they managed to get the balance so off.

    Apparently that was the first point any of the relegated teams have picked up against the top six all season. First vaguely positive statistic for us in a while.

    Stuck

    I think it's pretty hard to get fully stuck on most single-player games these days but I'd say probably 95% of the time if I have to resort to going to YouTube it's because there was a crucial non-obvious door or important object that I'd missed, causing me to walk around in circles for ten minutes, rather than having everything at hand and still being properly stumped. The Witness was a good one though, you'll likely have hit a wall in at least one direction for pretty much the entire game before making the breakthrough, getting stuck somewhere else and so on. The Talos Principle too I guess. You'll probably still be able to progress somewhere at any given point in both of them though.
