  1. Just watched Chip ‘N Dale, and thought it was great. It’s basically a buddy cop movie with a ton of references and sly jokes. You can tell it’s a Lonely Island film I think. I definitely recommend it.
  2. We just finished tonight and our reaction was meh. I’m left with the same feeling as I had at the end of House of Cards, although this was nowhere near as huge a fall from grace as that show.
  3. I thought that this one was in the same ‘universe’ as the Arkham games, but Suicide Squad wasn’t despite being the Rocksteady game?
  4. I’ve just started NG+ on the PS5 version after playing first time on the PS4 version. If you have a VRR capable TV then the PS5 version is better now than it was at launch (though that’s the VRR update to the console rather than the game). It’s smooth enough in performance mode, but still has lots of visible stuttering in open areas. Quality mode still stutters all over the place. The PS4 version on PS5 is super silky smooth at 60 fps all the way through. The visual differences are minor and loading is quick on both. My rec would be download both versions (time and bandwidth allowing) and start with the PS4 one. Save transfer to the PS5 version is super simple from the main menu but is one way only. So I would suggest then trying the PS5 version for a little bit without making too much progress, and then you don’t lose too much if you decide it’s too choppy for you. Your PS4 save will still be there so you can go back to that one easily.
  5. I'm really enjoying this series so far, there just seems to be something about the tasks that makes them more engaging? Maybe it is the lack of social distancing but the interactions between Alex and the contestants in the tasks is frequently hilarious, and Alex's sarky comments are ace. I guess it's probably always been like that, but it just seems to be working really well with this group.
  6. This might not be exactly an answer, but have you tried watching the Johnny English films with him? Those are pretty good fun, and my kids loved them at that age. I think the first is the weakest but the second and third have enough fun bits to keep anyone entertained.
  7. £75 for a replica shirt or £115 for the ‘proper’ one, is that right? I’m sure they’ll sell bucketloads but that still seems very pricey to me.
  8. I'm not a Liverpool fan, but I love watching them play. I just watched this and found it fascinating. I might even have a slight man crush on Pep Lijnders now.
  9. Thanks to you I’ve just done the same, so that £17 should then see me good for Premium until my Plus runs out next year. Might be worth looking out for cheap Plus in the next month to extend that before the new system kicks in.
  10. Just looked on the PS5 and can’t find a way to subscribe to Now on there any more. I guess Sony are closing all the loop-holes before the new tiers start?
  11. With this news about the premium going to the later of your Plus or Now, I thought I’d see if I could find a 3-month Now code, but CDKeys, Shopto and Amazon seem to be out of stock of any Now subscriptions. On the PS webstore there’s no option to subscribe either. Have they taken away the 1-month option from the console as well?
  12. Anyone had a go of the PS5 version with VRR yet? Could be the perfect excuse to go do an NG+ run if it runs more smoothly.
  13. Yes it was a great game today, 3-0 up after 20 mins against a team who never really turned up. I think after that the team didn’t really know what to do having never been in such a good position all season. Even when the Cheltenham striker found himself with an open goal he managed to hit the post which is pretty much the opposite of the luck we’ve had all year, so that was nice.
  14. I would like to recommend The After Party. It’s a comic whodunnit, centred around a death at a party following a high-school reunion. It’s an 8-part series of 30ish minute episodes, so easy breezy to get through. I think it’s actually a really well done mystery in itself, but the gimmick is (no story spoilers here) It stars Tiffany Haddish, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz and a few lesser know names, plus my personal favourite being Ben Schwartz in almost full ‘Jean-Ralphio’ mode. I really enjoyed it, and I reckon if you watched the first 2 episodes you’d know if you are going to like it or not.
  15. It’s been a while but I did a full run through when my youngest was up feeding in the night. It’s probably no surprise that the sexual politics of the early films have not aged well at all in my opinion. I might be mistaken but I seem to remember that in OHMSS James has it away with more than one woman in a ski lodge and then immediately comes down and proposes to Diana Rigg.
  16. Got to the credits this morning, 95 hours, level 157. Pretty sure I got a vanilla ending so I’ll go look up the others now. I don’t think I’ve ever played a game for this long before, this is as 10 as a 10 can be. For most of the game I was longsword and shield with a bit of sorcery, but ended up leaving INT low and building up STR to get some good damage. Close to the end I respecced into DEX so I could use Moonveil and Rivers of Blood. Slight endgame spoilers:
  17. That deleted scene really didn’t work for me, I’m glad they cut it.
  18. Yeah I watched it all and loved it. It’s just lovely feel-good TV, and every so often there’s a line that just cracks me up, such as: Also, I can’t believe it took me till the 3rd season to twig that his prepper girlfriend with the basement of tinned food and guns is called Sarah Connor.
  19. Saw this on Saturday and really enjoyed it, it certainly didn't feel like a 3-hour film.
  20. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! I’ve just done in 4 attempts what I couldn’t do in the previous 50 or so! It didn’t skip the second phase for me but it was still a hell of a lot easier.
  21. It’s only been out for about 211 hours by my maths! That’s some dedication.
  22. I can’t find any materials to get my spirit summons above +1. Any good places to go and find what I need, which I think is Grave Glovewart (2) and higher?
  23. It’s an actual telescope that lets you get a bird’s eye view of the area.
