  1. Anyone wanna explain the Zoe-Wizardchan kerfuffle? It's hard to find a source that isn't staunchly pro-gamergate and the twat I'm arguing with is constantly coming back with the "Zoe LIED" bollocks.

    Are these any good?



  2. Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Gomez, Henderson, Milner, Coutinho, Lallana, Ibe, Benteke.

    Team unchanged for tomorrow, but Can and Firmino really close to starting.


    It wasn't a balanced starting team last week, I doubt it will be this week.

  3. I haven't been following much discussion about this, but having completed it, what does everyone think is the hardest boss (if Blood Starved Beast is second)? If the answer's Ebrietas I'm cool with that. What a pissy boss.

  4. They've announced more things!


    Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic

    The Cure - Friday I'm in Love

    Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 1 - The Miracle and the Sleeper

    Foo Fighters - The Feast and the Famine

    Judas Priest - Halls of Valhalla

    Live - All Over You

    The Outfield - Your Love

    Ozzy Osbourne - Miracle Man

    Paramore - Still Into You

    St. Vincent - Birth in Reverse

    Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl


  5. Schneiderlin to United is pretty much done it seems, £25m+. There are clubs throwing quite a lot of money around this summer, as if FFP ain't no thing. Man City still want Pogba apparently even after spending a reported £100m to get Sterling. I don't think the Milner transfer is gonna balance the books.

    I thought FFP ain't no thing any more? I'm sure UEFA got rid of it recently.

  6. Good, I'm glad it's done. He should theoretically be good for the team, provided Aguero doesn't suddenly get sold, although I'm sceptical he'll keep performing at those wages. He might think he's made it and not bother any more.

  7. I'm not trying to fan flames or anything, but absolutely nothing about this is enticing me at the moment. The songs announced so far have got me shrugging at best, maybe Scandal or Death From Above 1979 (and their song is a bonus one as well) are okay but that's it. The new features haven't been effectively presented (or at least, they're difficult to present) and there's no online or practice modes announced. The latest news about Mad Katz's inevitable demise isn't assuring either.

  8. To be fair about controllers, the Wiimote+nunchuk (and the PSMove, but that wasn't very well supported) was a great controller. As shown in a fair few games on the Wii (Wario Ware: Smooth Moves has flipping loads of possibilities, even if the game was a bit dry), the thing had tons of potential that never got realised. And all because people had a bit strop over it, we're not likely to see it again.

  9. Additionally:

    "Mmm, on paper Ultron sounds like a ridiculous threat. But we can't make him too threatening, because, y'know, Thanos! Also a bunch of other throwaway baddies yet to come".

    How do you make every potential destruction more awesome than the last? That's Marvel's hole to worry about I suppose.

  10. Only just seen it, but Smitty, your review is spit-spot on. The only gripe I have (not just with yours) is the criticism of Whedon. I'm not a big fanboy of his or anything, but I think that there must have been so many decisions made for him ("you have to include this" and "make sure you don't mention that") he barely had leeway to put any of his own stuff in. It's a film which kind-of has a beginning and has something resembling an ending, but it was hardly a story that could have been delivered cohesively.

  11. I saw it last night as well. I thought it was garbage.

    -incredibly intrusive score telling me what emotions I need to be feeling in almost every scene

    -having to do mental gymnastics to allow things to be the way they are (this is excluding the concept of the dinosaurs at all)

    -Chris Pratt's character knowing fucking everything

    -that kid being smarter than Lisa fucking Simpson

    -CGI dinosaurs being utterly unconvincing

    -seeing nearly everything coming from a mile away

    There was a bit of tension, so that's a thumbs up.


  12. To be fair, the Ralph Retort article (well, you know... blogpost) is from last year so it doesn't look like his attempt to involve Gamergate did much good, although they tend to see RR as full of shit as well.

    edit: @Kelthink - isn't icycalm somebody different..?

    Oh it's Sketch! Oh sorry, jumped the gun.

    He was also 'a bit wrong'. Got banned from forums for being genuinely racist. I think he thought of Japan as a superior society before he went, he's one of 'those people'.

  13. This is a, well, movement is too strong a word, but a train of thought that has been circling hipster gaming circles. I.e. that violence in videogames is actually bad after all. It's basically a contrarian position taken after all the Jack Thompson dust settled, and is also a way of looking down one's nose at AAA games like Call of Duty in favour of the indie scene's more pacifist titles like Hotline Miami.

    Can't say I've seen this at all.
