  1. Thanks guys! I feel like Mario has bullied me.
  2. I'm so mad about it. I know there are bigger problems in the world. I really wanted it and now will never get it. Looks like the courier lied about delivering it, just took it to a local DPD office but didn't tell me, then it got sent back. Nintendo won't send it again. Fuckers. Don't even want this stupid NSO + Expansion pass I ordered in a panic to get one of these.
  3. Mine didn't. Getting Nintendo customer service involved to find out what happened has taken hours of website errors, poor customer service calls, ignored emails. And now they've told me there was a problem with delivery, they've cancelled my order, and to fuck off basically. Gah!
  4. I see there’s a new season of the Movistar doc up on Netflix
  5. The Procession to Calvary Is leaving a week on Friday. It’s 2.5 hours long. Worth a look?
  6. You can only access it if you solve all of the fates.
  7. I didn't realise you'd seen almost all of it. Yes, that's pretty much the story, although you've obviously missed some of the causes and effects. If you've got that far and haven't been bothered to work out who anyone is, then I think you can safely move on to a new game guilt-free.
  8. That's your problem right there. You're not expected to blast through it in a linear fashion. The game spirits you out of the memory before you can reasonably figure out what's going on. It's not backtracking. Take your time.
  9. Thanks for the heads up! It was a stressful time. I didn’t have NSO online. It didn’t want to log me in on browser, then it didn’t want to let me buy it with credit card, then I tried the switch which had no charge, then I tried to link PayPal, then I bought NSO but it didn’t show up on the store where you buy the controller. It was at this point I thought they would be out of stock. But I tried to order, then Apple Pay failed, then it worked. I still expect my order to be cancelled. Good old Nintendo. A seamless experience. On the plus side, I’m excited to have all these emulated games for the first time in a while. And, hopefully, with a suitable controller too!
  10. Due to holidays and illness I've almost completed a binge re-watch of BB, EC and BCS. What an achievement the whole thing is. Wonderful how different the shows are and yet they're complementary and fit together so beautifully. At first BB seemed a bit comic-book and larger than life after getting used to the slow-burn, moving character work of BCS, but the story is so big and gripping, and the characters and performances are so good that I loved it all over again. Prequels are usually so dull when they show the story of how some famous spaceship got its name, or turn a throwaway line of dialogue into a whole movie plot. BCS may show you how Saul gets his ring, his name, his inflatable Statue of Liberty. But rather than turn a bit of flavour into a stodgy bit of canon, they are either throwaway moments or they make something small into something wide and deep and moving. I would say a remarkable feature of the writing is how they manage to organically grow characters and storylines and drama from tiny beginnings. Names or actors in small roles or snatches of dialogue or loose ends are never forgotten, each little seed is put on an index card in the writer's room and turned into a rich seam of gold over many seasons. It becomes a beautifully self-contained little universe and it such a pleasure to binge on and live in it for a while. It's been a little less tense this time around now I know every character's fate. There are some episodes in the last couple of seasons of BCS where it was almost unbearable how much they used the fact you knew some of these characters didn't turn up in BB against you. But when you know where everybody started from and where they are going to, character arcs and actions make much more sense to me. I did lose my way a little bit first time around, what with the gaps between seasons. I couldn't quite remember exactly why Saul and Kim were doing the things they did to Howard. Sometimes when the Exit signs were in shot and they were taking another turning on a Bad Choice Road I'd be a bit puzzled. Normally I expect those things to be driven purely by plot: we are going against this guy because he did something bad to us that was clearly shown in the previous episode. But instead there are these flaps of the wings of butterflies that when they interact they become a whirlwind. And that's all stirred up by what's churning around inside Jimmy and Kim. What performances those two give. What a tragedy. Anthony Hopkins wrote a wonderful letter to Bryan Cranston. Apparently he didn't like it being leaked, and won't write another. I hope that Rhea and Bob and everyone involved gets all the praise and recognition they deserve (even if the Emmy voters don't ever deliver a just verdict). During the pandemic, getting to the end of this story seemed like a light at the end of the tunnel. It needed Bob to come back from the dead to make it happen. What a wonderful thing it is.
  11. I don’t think the main awards have been announced yet?
  12. Just blip the other player to my location when we’re too far apart, just like Halo did. I’m sure Halo means other things to other people, but to me it’s 2 player split screen co-op and if you’ve fucked that up, you’ve fucked up.
  13. Boo to split screen co-op news. I want one thing from a Halo game. Doesn't seem like much to ask.
  14. I encourage anyone thinking about maybe not buying this, not to buy it.
  15. Gique left the forum nearly a decade ago. Had a memorable rant on his way out the door.
  16. It starts off as a whole new show. It gradually introduces a few characters from BB earlier in the timeline. As things have drawn to a close this season things have linked up a little more, and it puts a capstone on the whole world. I’ve enjoyed watching BB again alongside these last episodes, and I think that’s been worthwhile to deepen my enjoyment. I don’t think it’s necessary to do so at the start of BCS.
  17. Always Mrs Amberlow to me..
  18. This was good! Haven’t seen the doc yet but I reckon you’re right.
  19. If I wanted to watch both this and the documentary The Rescue, does anyone think there’s a preferred order to do this?
  20. The first 10 by a rllmuker! Sam wins the forum.
  21. All the main people in this (if not everyone) is an actor, right?
  22. Why do I only see a "Buy on Store" option when trying to buy Bowser's Fury on the shop. This is confusing. Should I buy on store and select Digital? Might just go to the switch instead.
