  1. I would like to thank Rllmuk for recommending The Expanse to me. I genuinely believe it's the greatest sci-fi series I've ever watched (disclaimer: I've never seen any Battlestar Galactica). I'm really glad to hear it's been rescued. I've only seen the first episode of season three, but from what's on Netflix it was apparent that this is something really special. I'm excited to see where it goes.

    We had the jackfruit done this way yesterday. It was really good! It does have a really satisfying texture, just like pulled pork. In a nice sauce it is a fair analogue.

    ITB Games are bringing a 3D scanning rig to the expo this year, and are offering a service where they'll scan your body and create a 3D miniature of you for 19 quid. https://itb.setmore.com/

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Finally finished this a couple of days ago. >145 hours according to my Switch profile. I was still missing four or five Blades but after reaching the point of no return ages ago I spent the last 20 or so hours polishing off my side quests and filling out affinity trees until I just thought 'fuck it' and paid the final boss a visit. My party was level 93. Regarding the DLC, I'm not likely to buy in. Certainly not until we have more concrete details about what the final story segment features, but for the price it would have to be something pretty tempting. Overall I enjoyed XC2, I spent a long time playing it, and I'm still interested in what Monolith will do from here on. I'd like their next game to feature less bullshit, and while XC2 was closer to XC1 than to XCX on the mindless-treadmill scale, I think they can still trim a lot of the grind without compromising what it is I do like about their games.

    UK Games Expo

    The really big new games tend to save themselves for Essen or Gen Con, but I've been putting together a couple of lists of games I've heard about and would like to get a chance to play if possible: New games: Renegade Century: Eastern Wonders Dice Hospital The Mind Azul Ethnos Not-so-new games: When I Dream Roll Player Deception: Murder in Hong Kong Flamme Rogue First Class Fabled Fruit La Granja: No Siesta Cry Havoc I don't really know how many of them I'll see on display from their publishers, if previous years are anything to go by I'll probably be more interested in the things I've not heard of rather than anything I specifically want to try.

    Enter the Gungeon - Shoot, Loot & Roll

    I think I'm just about done with this now. I've killed all the pasts, including those of the two secret characters. Maybe I'll turn it on every so often to have another crack at the secret final boss (who I've only reached once wasn't able to defeat it), but my Switch tells me I've spent more time with Enter the Gungeon than I have Mario Odyssey. Time to move on!

    Board game for a 9 year old

    Do they like Star Wars? If so, the X-Wing miniatures game is quite good. However I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you the second edition is going to be released later this year. But it doesn't really invalidate any of the existing stuff, and only really matters if they plan to play in tournaments. Santorini is a cute little strategy game suitable for kids of that age and adults alike. Survive: Escape from Atlantis! or Survive: Space Attack! are great fun and let you control monsters to eat other people's pieces. King of Tokyo is a common recommendation for younger players, I'm not personally a fan but lots of people like it.

    Vegetarian / Vegan recipes

    My wife came back with a tin of the stuff this week. We've not tried it yet, but we're slowly working through all these new meat- and gluten-free alternatives that have started to appear on supermarket shelves. The tin claims it's a bit like pulled pork. That's a pretty high bar to set, I reckon they are only setting me up for disappointment.

    Hearthstone

    The Priest Deck I'm playing at the moment is almost entirely based around the Inner Fire effect, and no, I don't include Lady in White despite it being the free legendary I picked up when the expansion launched. She's just too slow. Maybe it has some mileage in a control deck full of fat taunts.

    Hearthstone

    Spiteful Summoner is still ridonkulous. Oh no, Druid has to wait until turn seven before summonning Tyrantus. I've been playing Combo Priest this month. Something of a classic deck, it's about dropping a healthy minion on the board and hitting it with Divine Spirit/Inner Fire to OHKO. Fares pretty well against all these Paladins. I have to concede against Quest Warriors though.

    If it's anything like previous years, then yes, unfortunately you'll need to queue for a long time. We saw people lining up well over an hour before the show began and I think quite a few people were disappointed and unable to get in. It should really be a ticketed event. Dice Tower is the same.

    Vostok Inc. Free Switch Demo out now

    I worked it out eventually. All the objectives of that type are "go from the innermost to the outermost planet". There is no planet called Ra, but you get the objective if you make the flight from whatever is the innermost planet in that system. I guess the text is wrong.

    Nintendo Labo - What's in the box?

    It's going to be a very slow burn for me. This weather is not encouraging us to stay indoors! The boy hasn't forgotten about our half-finished motorcycle though.
  15. I watched The Cage for the first time a few days ago. Interesting to see what might have been, I'm glad the execs sent the studio back to the drawing board after that.
