  1. Glad to hear positive feedback on the new BB stuff so far. The other good news - having never played the TT game - is it means Blood Bowl 3 is not far off as they are supposedly releasing in-step. I must admit I haven’t played much of 2 recently, but will try to pick up again once that arrives. I’m really hoping they can find ways to streamline things some more as trying to find and hour-plus for a game can be tricky these days.
  2. The current TOTD makes me want to quit the game - I’m about .500 off the author medal with no idea how to feasibly reduce that, and somehow there are people a further second below that... One to add to the Murtagh list, I think.
  3. Sure it’s not something like Citadel on the BBC Micro? Left to right scrolling, lots of the backgrounds are night/space, jumping onto some questionable platforms and your health depletes over time. Failing that, Star Port? Has a lot of similar mechanics. Otherwise - what sort of graphics are we talking here - 8-bit, 16-bit? 2D/2.5D/3D?
  4. In other news, managed to polish off the author medals for Summer 2020 the other day, whoop!
  5. The thing that has always slightly irked me about Trackmania is the ridiculous cuts some people find in the maps. Yes, in most cases it still takes skill to actually pull off the cuts themselves, but you'd really have no idea about them unless you either research online or race against WR ghosts. This video for example... gah: It just feels a bit cheap. I'm not even annoyed at the players, really - map makers should try to minimise it where possible with checkpoints etc. I'm generally even less annoyed about it where it's community-made custom maps, but this is happening in official maps in the Summer 2020 playlist.
  6. I’m playing this - the classic Nations formula has dragged me back in once again. Still on the free version at the moment, but I’m sure I will end up going for one of the paid versions at some stage. If you’ve never played a TM game before and love any sort of time-trial racing, you should really give it a go.
  7. The Last Gladiators is a great insight into the rise and fall of the enforcer role. Speaking of individual players, this month marks 30 years since a certain Jaromir Jagr was drafted by the Pens. Definitely one of my all-time favourite players (his jersey was the first I bought when growing up), despite not coming back to Pittsburgh for a proper retirement. Great video from NHL.com: https://www.nhl.com/video/the-ultimate-jaromir-jagr-mixtape/t-277350912/c-5385611
  8. Just bumping this in case anyone missed it the first time around, as it’s still brilliant. I’ve managed to get back to watching these during lockdown (up to S2 E11 of Micro Live currently) - just such a great window back into the industry and world back then. Something that continues to be refreshing is they are consistently forward-thinking. They are under no illusions about the inevitability that the groundbreaking-for-the-time technology they’re covering is very swiftly going to become obsolete and discuss this in quite sensible ways (not in terms of some unrealistic utopian future world). They have just started covering the Amiga and PC compatibles now - roll on 1986!
  9. Nestalgica has done a great cover of E2M1 from Doom: Original for posterity:
  10. Tiny Towns, to chuck another recommendation in the hat.
  11. Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is free to keep on Steam currently: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1158500/Between_Two_Castles__Digital_Edition/
  12. Metal Gear 2 - Theme Of Solid Snake
