  1. It was a decent site once upon a time but now I'm not sure there's a more accurate indicator of acute walloperitis than the three words "The Anfield Wrap".
  2. That La Liga statement is a bit daft but in Tebas defence he has at least been consistent in pushing for tighter financial controls, has brought in a slightly fairer distribution model for the La Liga TV money and held a hard line with Barcelona last year even though it ended up with Messi leaving the league.
  3. Shit, thought I had included a link to the story. https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/for-the-first-time-in-8-years-xbox-outsold-playstation-in-japan-last-week/ PS5 sales were down massively compared to the week before because of stock issues.
  4. I think it works on this year's Galway United kit. The detailing isn't as noticeable in the actual jersey so it does look very good in the flesh.
  5. Well that's one of the signs of the apocalypse ticked off.
  6. Christ Ramsey, that was dreadful.
  7. I don't think Tyler is anti-Liverpool, pro-City, he is just bad at his job. I haven't heard any fan praise him in years. Part of the selling point of Sky was that they had the best football coverage and I don't think you could say that anymore because of Tyler in particular. A few of my mates have gone down the dodgy box route and while they've mentioned missing Carragher and Neville's analysis none of them miss Tyler. One lad watches some African stream regularly where he doesn't understand a word of what the commentator is saying but at least they get excited when something big happens which is more than Tyler does now. He is basically Colin Robinson off What we do in the Shadows.
  8. For what little it's worth three of the top five games in last year's GotY poll were announced during E3 season last year. The summer drought feels more severe this year because February and March were ludicrously stacked compared to most years. Summer games fest is around four weeks away and we'll see a clearer picture start to form for the rest of the year then.
  9. Obsidian would presumably have been working on Avowed for over two years by the time the Bethesda deal closed so I'm not surprised Microsoft didn't touch that project. I'm more surprised that Bethesda hadn't already started a new team or studio to work on Fallout 5 even before they were bought. Seems crazy to go with a strategy that would have meant they'd go over a decade between mainline entires in that franchise.
  10. Maybe Saints Row? That might not be big enough. These two slipping is presumably going to have an effect on Microsoft's 2023 lineup. Their on paper lineup for 2023 already seemed stacked before the Activision deal. Add in Activision and these two and something has to give. Hard to see how Fallout stays as a Bethesda Games Studio game. The gap between Skyrim and Elder Scrolls 6 is already going to be ridiculous. Someone has to make a Fallout game.
  11. There were reports out there a year ago saying Hellblade was a 2023 game. I am surprised at the Starfield delay as they'd made such a big deal out of announcing the date. The lack of gameplay hadn't bothered me as we didn't see anything of Fallout 4 around the E3 before it released. It's also been nearly seven years since Fallout 4. MS supposedly have Forza this year along with a smaller rumoured project at Obsidian. Publishers must be delighted with this news, MS need to open the chequebook to get stuff for Gamepass this winter.
  12. I'm guessing they have to be going into a partnership with someone to make that happen. I'm sure Take 2 would love to have a big football game each year but I can't see them agreeing to FIFAs terms.
  13. https://venturebeat.com/2022/05/06/xbox-streaming-stick-when/ I suppose it was inevitable that they'd ttry releasing some sort of hardware like this. I'll be curious to see if it'll use the same frontend as the Series consoles or if they'll come up with a UI that emphasizes the video apps more. One thing I really like about the PS5 is the way it boots into the media apps section if you turn it on using the remote instead of a dual sense so it'd be nice if this puck leads to MS adding the same sort of functionality to the Xbox. Ideally it'd also work for in home streaming so you could have the Series X connected to one TV but play it in another room without any hassle. Maybe update the controller to ripoff pay homage to the way Stadia lets you use one controller on multiple screens.
  14. https://www.eurogamer.net/fortnite-joins-xbox-cloud-gaming-giving-iphone-users-another-way-to-play Doesn't seem to show up in the app but it works if you go to xbox.com/play and sign in there. Article says there will be more free to play stuff added to cloud streaming soon, presumably Rocket League is going to happen as that's also an Epic game.
  15. Have you read Gail Simones Secret Six stuff? I think it starts with Villains United.
  16. Double Dash wasn't even good at the time. If you you were ranking the Mario Kart games it'd be seventh or eighth on the list depending on if you included Tour in the list.
  17. I think it just means that Embracer will have the rights to continue selling the existing Avengers and GotG games.
  18. This whole deal just seems like a very odd move by Square. Does it really make them more attractive for a buyout? They reduced their headcount but it also seems like they've reduced the variety in what they produce. If the big players are Tencent, Sony and MS then are Square now a more attractive proposition for any of those companies? As someone who just plays games its probably good news as Embracer seem to have some sort of plan for their future even if it just ends up being that they want to have a load of stuff to stick into PS Plus/ GamePass and get paid that way. Its hard to know what Square are at really.
  19. I'm very curious about how they are going to handle their first party stuff this year. The temptation is always to show something brand new but their announced lineup of games that's theoretically due to launch between this showcase and the end of 2023 feels like it should be enough to backbone a good to great show. I want to see real footage of Avowed, Fable etc. I don't want 30 seconds of clearly pre-rendered footage followed by a logo. It needs to be a showcase of real games.
  20. By Games with Gold standards that's a fantastic month.
  21. Refusing to wear headphones seems an unnecessary bit of bawlbaggery to be honest. It's been a while since I last played an RTS but they always had repetitive dialogue. "Walk softly and carry a big gun" has been seared into my brain from playing Dawn of War for 40 hours over a decade ago. I haven't played League but from I understand it's likely that Jim has a main character he uses so their dialogue also gets repeated over and over again. And again. At this point headphones are like masks, there isn't really a good reason you can't find a comfortable solution as theres so much choice out there.
  22. Ah now, is this gaming as a hobby or as a very poorly paying job? I use the rewards stuff myself but deciding what to "play" in order to earn pennies per hour is taking it too far I reckon.
  23. https://www.eurogamer.net/sony-reportedly-now-requires-some-playstation-developers-make-time-limited-game-demos-for-plus-premium That sounds like it could be great. Obviously it'll be down to how it's implemented but I thought the trials stuff would be way more limited than that.
