  1. Oops sorry about the spoiler! I've edited my post.
  2. I think the mercenaries in Odyssey were way better than the Zealots in Valhalla. You could end up with a whole bunch of them on you at the same time which made for some fun moments, particularly if you threw a few fighting animals into the mix. I finished the Valhalla crossover event which was great, mainly because My saga is done (unless they pull me back in with the Basim DLC).
  3. Agree. I think it was only the Palace game and the Liverpool game where I thought City might drop points on their run in. I expect them to win every other game. Palace were excellent last night and really rode their luck, but they looked absolutely fucked at full time. I can't see many teams putting that kind of shift in against such a dominant City side and getting so lucky. The run in for Liverpool looks pretty tough and I just can't see them winning every game. I think an away win at a resurgent Arsenal on Wednesday is going to be a big ask especially as Liverpool haven't played that well in their last couple of games. Worst case, we can always beat City in the Champions League so they go another season without winning it
  4. Siege of Paris is done, which just leaves the Odyssey crossover to do and then I’m finally done with Valhalla. I have zero interest in playing Ragnarok. The rats and the rebel missions were rubbish and Eivor’s voice was even more annoying in this DLC than the main game for some reason. Her whispering voice and her pissed voice are the worst. I did like the AC Unity style assassination missions in SoP though but the implementation was half arsed. I guess Hitman has spoiled me when it comes to that style of gameplay. Hopefully Infinity goes back to more environmental verticality and the stealth/assassination style gameplay of earlier AC games and please let it not be another 100+ hour epic.
  5. The communication around delivery of the Next 2 on Kickstarter sucks. The last update was on Jan 17th. It's pretty standard for the project team to maintain radio silence for months on end. Their approach seems to be to info dump when they have finally managed to collate updates on as many aspects of their project as they can. I don't understand why they don't commit to monthly updates, even if there is not much to say. Maybe its lack of experience. The comments section is full of people fawning over the project team along the lines of 'oh it must be so hard for you all and we just have to be patient'. I mean yeah, of course its hard but that doesn't mean the Next team should skip keeping their backers regularly updated and informed. I am not very confident that they are going to get this over the line.
  6. Looking at that list, it's telling how many players either arrive at Old Trafford older and past their peak, or younger and then go backwards in their development. Ronaldo's best days were at Real Madrid, Cavani at PSG, Pogba at Juve, Varane at RM, Maguire at Leicester. Fred god knows. I think the answer is VVD/Matip, Ronaldo/Cavani, Kante/Kovavic, Alisson (if it's about those players at their peak at any club).
  7. I've just bought a new 3DS XL and it could do with a bit of a clean. Can anyone recommend what I'd need to give it a spruce up re sprays, gels, brushes etc?
  8. The thing I remember about Into the Eagles Nest (and god knows why I remember it) was that you didn’t see the bullets when you fired your gun. I don’t think I’d seen that in a game before. Maybe this was one of the first to do it?
  9. There's an interesting interview here with RR that came out last December about the making of Book of Boba Fett: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-features/robert-rodriguez-interview-book-of-boba-fett-star-wars-1235062364/ The main takeaways are that he shot the Tatooine stuff really fast, George Lucas may have been involved (!), those mod scooters sound like they were RR's idea and then there's this bit It starts to sound a bit Adam and Joe. I envisage footage made with loads of 80s action figures from different TV shows and Robert Rodriguez shouting 'pew pew' over the top of it. I'd love to see it!
  10. They're probably in the (long) queue for a session in the bacta tank. S2 of the Book of Boba Fett will be a Brittas Empire style sitcom focussing on Boba's efforts to convert Jabba's Palace into the finest health retreat in the galaxy, where he will offer long rejuvenating bacta tank sessions and cleansing programmes where you can only drink those sand people water pod things.
  11. Tie in with the Book of Boba Fett: Let’s Bacta Tank! Wear the heartbeat sensor and keep Boba’s heart rate steady while he has exciting dreams about sand people. Also from the Book of Boba Fett: Super Bombad Racing 2: we are the mods (we are, we are the mods). Battle sharp suited teenagers in slow moving scooter races around Mos Vespa. Locks at 15FPS when the Switch is docked to simulate your favourite chase sequence from the TV series.
  12. The roads help massively with deliveries which in turn helps you get more waystations on the chiral network (particularly the ones that don’t want to join UCA initially). You need chiral network coverage on the map as you can’t build ziplines where there is no coverage. Once you drop a zipline it will show whether you’re in the 300m range of another zipline. I went mad with this game and built all the roads and a pretty comprehensive zipline network to get the 5 stars in the waystations I wanted. It’s a different sort of satisfaction from both really. I liked the concept of joining remote parts of the map by road (especially the east and west parts of the map via the mountains) whereas the ziplines are all about speeding around delivering stuff. Assuming you don’t want to build every road, you’ll be able to figure out yourself where roads are pretty essential (like going over that giant’s causeway bit near the weather station). The ziplines are amazing though especially in the snowy mountains!
  13. PS+ really has turned into a load of old tut. The rumoured new PS+/PS Now service can't come soon enough (in the hope that Sony actually try and make it like Gamepass and not current PS Now plus 3 underwhelming new games every month).
  14. In principle, would Microsoft be able to sell a monthly 'Gamepass Lite' subscription service on Playstation with multiplats from Bethesda and ActivisionBlizzard (not Xbox exclusives) if they wanted to?
  15. I was faintly amused by the Mos Vespa guy doing his best low key spying on the Pikes by parking a few feet away from them on his bright red scooter and then communicating his secret update to Boba Fett on a jukebox video thing that was stuck to a wall on a busy street
  16. The black and red 80s monstrosity is the Quickshot 2 Turbo. I’m pretty sure it had microswitches and while it was a shit joystick, it was still a lot better than the original Quickshot which was all black with leaf switches. I spent a lot of time unscrewing the base on the latter so I could push the leaf switches back in place to make the stupid thing work.
  17. Haha! There's something quite incongruous about the sand people flashbacks where he's all beaten up, partially sarlacc digested and missing his eyebrows, and then he opens his mouth and and shows off a set of pearly whites that look like they've come straight out of a Beverly Hills orthodontist.
  18. I think it's a fantastic signing for Villa and it will get their fans excited. It's a 6 month loan, so if it works out and a Coutinho/Ings/Watkins combo really gets firing it'll be great to watch. If things don't work out, then it's only a 6 months loan fee lost. I reckon there is still a player there though and he'll be a success.
  19. It's absolutely ridiculous isn't it? The dancing preppy assassins are the stupidest thing I've seen on TV in years. It's thoroughly enjoyable trash.
  20. 8/12/21 Persona 4 Golden (PS Vita) A bout of Covid sent me back to the Vita to play this classic for the first time, and it quickly became a bit of an obsession. It's a perfect fit for the hardware, and still really stands up almost 10 years after release. I got the true ending (by using an FAQ) and my word what an ending it is - probably another 10 hours of game. I never really got to grips properly with the Persona fusing, but the story was great fun and I enjoyed most of the dungeon combat with the exception of some of the boss battles. It's never fun getting one shotted after 15 minutes of grinding away at a boss health bar. Still, I'd highly recommend this one. I should also finally finish Soma, and that will be it for 2021. I've finished some sensational games this year and I think Death Stranding was the best of all of them.
  21. Still no sign of my subs copy either.
  22. My mind was blown hearing Big City by Spacemen 3 during the Roman and tech CEO treehouse scene. It took me right back to being a bong fuelled 16 year old. That was another tremendous episode. It's light years ahead of anything else on TV at the moment.
  23. I was surprised to see George Martin there all the time from the point that they move to the Apple studio as I’d read he’d had very little to do with Let It Be. Also Billy Preston is awesome. He’s like a ray of sunshine when he joins the band. Pretty funny when they’re asking where he is and he’s doing a TV special for Lulu which has somehow taken priority over recording a Beatles album!
  24. I'm about halfway through part two and I've been pretty surprised so far at how quiet Ringo is. I'd always assumed he brought the chat. Maybe he's hungover?
