  1. I've preordered this on Steam even though I have Gamepass Ultimate cos I can't get the Xbox app to load on my laptop for love nor money.
  2. I was wondering this but ended up just emulating the Amiga versions of Monkey Island and PS1 versions of Broken Sword, as those were all I was really interested in. would be good to have ScummVM working proper though.
  3. I googled her and have never seen that lady before in my life. What’s up with her?
  4. I did already get the 19XL (well, 2 actually) but thanks for your input. Got them off eBay in the end for about £15 each because I couldn't be arsed going to Ryman. Not done anything with them yet but they seem perfect for my needs.
  5. There was a girl who won a TV competition in like 2000 to be a character on Byker Grove, that I used to fancy. I wonder what she looks like now.
  6. I’m a massive gambler - well, bettor - but have absolutely zero inclination to every play a fruity. Even less so after this thread. Annoying cos one of my mates loves them, and standing with him while he wastes money is so boring. Wanna put some of my quids in? No thanks, mate, I’m not a child.
  7. My daughters just turned 4 and we sometimes play Mario Kart together on the Switch. She saw me playing it on a SNES emulator on my Xbox and wanted a turn, so I got the Switch out and we gave it a bash. You can set it to be really assisted, including acceleration and turning. I’d have previously laughed at this and asked what the point is, but hey if it makes little kids have fun playing games then I’m all for it. MK8 is perfect too cos each cup is 4 races so she goes first, then me, then her and then I try to finish with a win to secure a trophy. She’s actually won a handful of races too and we both went crazy with genuine excitement everytime.
  8. Probably West Ham or, dare I say it, Everton. All the auld blue noses round here love their “black watch” kit.
  9. I hope this time next week (new series starts 9pm on Thursday 23rd September) I'm more excited, but at the moment I'm just sad there isn't gonna be another NZ series for ages, cos season 2 was sooooooo good.
  10. That is weird isn’t it, considering the family were so heavily involved in its creation. The reason for the low rating, I mean, not the lack of “here’s an unrecognisable comatose man.”
  11. I wish there was a way to share saved games between my Xbox and Steam versions of RetroArch.
  12. Shame we can’t play Milan every game.
  13. If anyone’s struggling for a stream for champions league games you can watch them on the LiveScore app if you use a VPN to spoof your location to Ireland. I pay for SurfShark but you could try using Windscribe free. Yes they’re referral links, but they’ll give you 30 free days / extra monthly bandwidth respectively. There’s also codes for Windscribe KOMPUTER and EXPAND20 and BAKTA420 but may have expired now so apologies.
  14. For lack of a Drake thread, and not wanting to create one in 2021, I’m bumping this one. Drake currently has 9 of the top 10 songs on the Billboard Top 100. Whether you like his music or not, this is an incredible feat and will likely never happen again. Also worth mentioning the number 1, “Way 2 Sexy,” samples Right Said Fred and is impossible to listen to without cringing and/or grinning. A lot of people refer to Drake as the GOAT and, with no signs of slowing down, it’s hard to disagree he is the best and what he does. Although one gripe I do have is I was recently wearing an OVO and @Mike asked why I was wearing Sheffield Wednesday merch. So I’m now always on the lookout for actual Sheff Wed merch that just has the owl on. Anyway, yeah Drake. Nothing will ever top “Take Care” in terms of albums, and I doubt Headlines will ever be replaced as my favourite Drake song, but I’ll definitely keep listening.
  15. Ah that’s a pain. Cheers for the info.
  16. Hello. I've bought some vinyl records recently and listened to the majority them and now want to "put them away" for a bit, in the loft. Can anyone recommend some kind of solid storage solution? I'm thinking like one of those clear plastic boxes with the clasps on like this but not sure about sizing cos I don't want them to get squashed. There's no damp in my loft, as far as I know, but would prefer to avoid putting them in a cardboard box. They're currently in an old plastic drawer that we no longer have the shelving part for, but I want something with a lid, really. Basically, I'm hoping someone has got some boxes for the same purpose and I can get the same thing. I probably have about 40 12" records to store. edit: Although this looks nice. 2nd edit: nevermind. I think I'll order this one. £15, holds 50 records, exactly what I had in mind. 3rd edit: shipping was as much as the box but it's on amazon for £16.52
  17. I love that a tactic I made in around 2003 for Championship Manager 01-02 is still considered one of the best possible tactics on the game. And that I thought to call it 442Baz when I was 16.
  18. I hated Broken Sword 3. Such a disappointment at the time.
  19. A friend told me this rule and I’ve been applying it to everything since my parents first got a 14.4k modem in 1996.
  20. Same, same. Such good TV. I really didn’t like Ursula though.
  21. Thanks for this. I looked him up and Google suggested I also search for Shaun Teale, which I think is the answer. pesky Google! Upon reading his wiki he used to own a pub in Burscough which makes sense cos my colleague lives there. I guess that’s Numberwang.
  22. When I did movember a while back, a colleague told me I looked like a specific footballer. I’m like 99% sure he was an Aston Vill defender from the 80s/90s. Does anyone here know of said old footballer known for his moustache, please?
