  1. The Sopranos (S1-S6) You can just watch the final episode of Season 6, you’ll get the gist. Anyway, I’ve binged this and finished the lot in about a month or so. I was quite sad at the end to leave the world and characters behind. First of all, what I didn’t like: Season 1 has some pretty shitty effects and acting, AJ in particular is terrible. Thankfully he gets better in future seasons. The ratio of family shit and mafia stuff is a bit too heavy towards the former. It never becomes actually boring but I was always happy to get back to the nasty, interesting stuff. Too much Melfi. There were a few really profound moments where she’s juggling the want to help with that of working with a sociopathic narcissist, but it was interlaced with a lot of dull chat. Mainly though, it’s just an incredibly entertaining and brutal show with so much depth. And despite the advances in tech it has barely aged at all. Most of all it feels so real. The fact that the subreddit is so popular 20 years after release shows its reach. 5/5
  2. Jesus, have you been sentenced yet for this atrocity? What a thing to do.
  3. Nice one! I did my fourth and got Firmino, not had any luck with them.
  4. The new tiers mean you're only ever 2-3 wins at most from the next one as opposed to 4 or 5, meaning players throw less games.
  5. I thought series 3 was stronger than 2, personally. Can't wait for this. Have they confirmed it's the final season?
  6. The absolute biggest thing is composure in the box, and I don't mean a player's stat, I mean yours. I think it's the hardest thing in FIFA, but resisting the urge to just shoot ASAP is crucial to not having shots blocked constantly. If you watch someone better than all of us like Boras you'll see that he'll play one more pass than most, or he'll reposition before he shoots with a skill move or short dribble. That kind of stuff you can work on.
  7. Towards the end of a cycle EA absolutely throw cards at you to keep you playing. This culminated in a 85+x10 SBC last year which was infinitely repeatable, and allowed anyone with a bit of time to get PIM Gullit, Viera and R9. Everyone had super-teams.
  8. After a week of Mbappe, I would say that those lucky enough to have done the Benzema SBC have a very similar player in terms of movement and finishing ability. With Mbappe you're paying for 5* skills and extreme dribbling ability. Not to say Benzema is bad on the ball, but there's not as much difference as you might think. I also don't like Nkunku, and I think a lot of it is down to his medium/medium work rates, which always seems to be an issue with anyone I try - they just don't get as involved as players with high/high, high/medium or medium/high.
  9. If it makes you feel better, I got fuck all in my packs, as usual. I finally bought Mbappe this weekend and he pushed me to Rank 4 (14 wins), my best result yet. He's as brilliant and broken as I hoped, his only weakness is his sometimes underwhelming left foot.

    This is of course incredible. I find some of the political and race stuff a bit hard to digest but I'm guessing that's half the point. Just started day 2 and I'm completely engrossed. They should force people who think Yakuza and Nier Automata are the pinnacle of storytelling to play this.
  12. It was never hard from what I remember, I think a couple of the descriptions for what you had to do were a bit confusing, though.
  13. Yep, Returnal was much better. I think the thing I like least about Hades is how it feels like a flash game. (I finished a run on it but had no desire to carry on).
  14. You're probably better off waiting until midweek. Getting 11 wins means you can play the qualifiers straight after finishing the weekend league, so you'll get a lot of those players doing the qualifiers on Fri-Sun
  15. Yeah, it's one of those because the likelihood of him getting an in form is small, especially seeing as Man U haven't scored a single set piece this season.
  16. Similar for me. I absolutely loved the opening, the nostalgia overload was overwhelming, and the game looks fantastic, but it's just so linear and by numbers. I also hate how every conversation is 4 times longer than it needs to be, but that's just JRPGs, I guess.
  17. Just packed 93 Gullit, my pack luck is atrocious though, only icon I've packed this week ffs
  18. Yep, usually when people post stuff like this it's because they need a break from gaming.
  19. There's a winter token with the draft token SBC if anyone missed that one.
  20. I'm quite tempted to start the audiobooks, they've started releasing them narrated by Rosamund Pike who is lot more palatable than Kate Reading & Michael Kramer.
  21. I've got a copy of the above image if anyone wants it. £300
  22. Until reviews start downmarking for that shit, I can't see it changing.

    Are there any 'before I play' tips for this I should know, or should I just throw myself into it?
