  1. After initially enjoying Dr Aphra and Vader I’m running out of steam with them a bit now. Vol 1 of Vader was excellent, as were the initial Dr Aphra’s. Like a a lot of this stuff it seems they had a great idea for a story and a new character, told that story, and now have to produce more and more...forever! I find the shoehorning in of Leia, Luke and Han at every available opportunity particularly irksome. At least there was a good story to tell initially though, unlike the dull Stranger Things spin off I read recently. Might go back and give Vader another go.
  2. With the somewhat overlooked point that Joss Whedon has made some of the most enjoyable and memorable tv and film experiences around and Zach Snyder films are a steaming pile of turd burgers. Apart from the zombie one.
  3. BTK’s killing spree lasted until the 90’s didn’t it? So no reason he won’t be bebackground for the next season as well, unless they’re jumping way forward in time.
  4. Always fancied a go on those sniper games. Wipeout Omega, particularly in VR, is one of the most incredible videogaming experiences in existence.
  5. Looks lovely, but I’m still waiting for Nemesis wave 2 to ship, and have Tainted Grail on the way circa 2021. So think I will sit this one out. Then again...
  6. Wait, the remake of Yakuza 2 has new karaoke bits?? SOLD!
  7. I’ve been PAZ since at least 1980.
  8. Endgame passed Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time yesterday. https://edition.cnn.com/2019/07/20/media/avengers-endgame-avatar-box-office/index.html And what's with people dumping on Sam Raimi’s Spider Man?? They were great. Second one was up there in my top 3 comic book movies before the MCU.
  9. Completing Kung Fu Master twice through on a single 10p.
  10. Spent yesterday evening playing Outer Rim. I was a bit trepidatious after reading through the lengthy manual and watching some convoluted how to set up and play videos and seeing some so-so reviews. Needn’t have worried, it zipped along nicely and our two player game was done in a couple of hours. Best thing about it is the atmosphere it creates and the ability to construct unique ships and crew. By the end I had Dr Aphra flying Slave 1 with Greedo as crew. Weirdly it reminded me of the Tony Boydell prototype I played, Attention all Shipping. But instead of upgrading my freezer to stop my mackerel going off before I made it to Calais, I was upgrading my loading bay to fit in a Rancor that I had to deliver to Tatooine. Spent a good half hour getting stuck around Kessell surrounded by Hutt, Rebel, Syndicate and Imperial patrols baying for my blood. Felt good. Will be playing again.
  11. Doom at the time was unbelievably atmospheric. Bizarrely I found Chuckie Egg 2 one of the most atmospheric games when it was released also, there was a terrifying feeling of vertigo it created which I didn’t feel again until I played The Last Guardian some 30 years later. Currently Wipeout VR has to be the most atmospheric game, well, ever. So completely immersive you may as well be on the holodeck.
  12. Hopefully Sith troopers will be as well integrated into the plot as Captain Phasma. Screen time of 90 seconds then comedy killed by a porg.
  13. Loved this season. Possibly my favourite. They nailed the body horror, schlock monsters and Evil Dead vibe. All wrapped up in an ongoing Goonies saga with loveable kids, although some of the boys were looking rather old to be wearing the shorts they were stuffed into. The references were a bit more niche I thought, which made them all the more satisfying. The Outburst had me punching the sky like a Young over excited Tom Cruise. Stranger Things 4: Can’t come soon enough. In the meantime I’m well up for re-watching the first three seasons.
