  1. What a shit show weekend for our refs. The worst for me was the de bruyne handball penalty not being given. He jumps with his hands in the air, arms out to the side of his face and deflects the ball away form the target. What kind of bullshit excuse is "natural position". The things I always think about with these var decisions is what if every player did this every time and it was not penalised apprporiately, what would the game look like? So we'll have 4 goalkeepers in every defensive wall jumping with their arms in the air and in the lo celso incident, 4 broken legs, every game.
  2. Heads up for anyone who has below zero and has been waiting to play it: The story is changing in the next patch, so this patch is the last chance that we will have to play the game with its current story. I was planning on waiting until the game was 'finished' before playing but I will jump in now and then play again when the next story version is finished.
  3. A preferred winning strategy of mine with ironclad is turtling with a single demon's form and heavy blade. Turtle with barricade and just wait for the damage to build up with demon form and heavy blade. The good thing about this strategy is that you need very few key cards to make it work. The downside is that you are very vulnerable to a single attack killing you if the early cards don't fall your way.

    It's good old variable re-inforcement to keep us super keen.
  5. I still enjoy this as a casual, drop in for an hour experience. It absolutely shines as a backseat, couch co-op game. Playing it with my daughter, her telling me where to go and me attempting the execution.
  6. Just doesn't appeal to all I guess and didn't get the cult following of games like goose game. It's also the type of game that people will not play without word of mouth. The aesthetic doesn't appeal to the average rllmuker who is more accustomed to third person action adventures.
  7. When asked recently, what my favourite ever Liverpool games was, I picked the Alaves game just ahead of the collymore Newcastle game. I'm pretty sure that on carra's podcast, Stevie pick the Alaves game as his favourite of all time too. I've completely forgotten what happened now so it is due a re-watch but I remember the emotion being the strongest I've ever experienced watching football.

    Another positive week of game pass for me: Final Fantasy XV - A game that I would never, ever have given a chance (having not enjoyed a FF since VIII, I gave up at X) and I love it. It just works perfectly for me but I can't really explain why. I saw a banner that said something like "for new FF players and experienced ones" and I guess they are right. It reminds me a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles, which is one of my favorite jrpgs of all time, just slicker and better looking. And on looking, my god does it look amazing on PC. It looks and plays smooth enough that it has some truely breathtaking visual moments. The combat is simple enough for me that I can kind of get stuck in without having to think too deeply about what I, or anyone else is doing. It's almost like a button masher rpg where you can't really go wrong. And the setting and clash of environments and characters is so weird, it really adds to the appeal. Shadow of the Tomb Raider - It has been installed on my xbox since it was put on the service, but with it being imminently removed, I thought I'd give it a go. I've put the combat on easy and everything else on hard, as the puzzle elements of Tomb raider have always been the best part for me. Now I'm really worried that I won't be able to finish it before it leaves. I've decided that any game where a bow and arrows is/can be a key weapon really appeal to me for some reason (this, dead cells, horizon zero dawn). The crafting is simple enough, and not massively intrusive, especially with the combat on easy and so is the skill progression. It is incredibly dark and brutal at times. I really don't want to screw something up and see Lara impaled any more. Slay the spire - FInally the windows store version has got the new character patch. It's still amazing and is still great as a game that you don't have to be entirely glued to at all times.

    Yeah, I considered Breloom but pvpoke suggests that it is slightly weaker with my other 2 than lugia is. However, breloom would reduce the number of weaknesses that my team has.

    I've built my teams using pvpoke, excellent resource. I'm going to struggle with ultra at first because I have no idea about matchups/what types pokemon are and what possible moves they have. I know Snorlax is strong against the giratinas and at least ok against almost everything else apart from fighters. I know Lugia is my go to for fighting types and is probably my best against fire, water. Gliscor is good against psychics, due to night slash and good against grass and also decent vs fighting. I really want to stick with gliscor and snorlax but have struggled to find a 3rd member. Hariyama is definitely an option but I'll see how lugia goes.

    Pokemon Go

    Great league team: In that order. Once I got that team I won about 85% of my matches, including a 21 win streak. I ended up with figures of: I put meganium in to the line-up due to the amount of azumaril, whiscash and swampert I was going up against. For a lot of the matches, altaria wasn't really needed. Meganium rips through anything water, crazy quick and can even do well against ice with good use of shields. The only real counters were the opening fighting pokemon (especially toxicroak and medicham) against registeel, forcing me to swap out to meganium. I had one match against a charizard which was not fun with either regi or meganium.

    With the great league finishing tonight, I have been preparing (at great dust and rare candy expense) my ultra league team: I'll post my great league team in a minute
  13. Is the rifts the most recent dlc? If so, that is nice to have in there. Pathfinder is a great addition too and hasn't been on any other service yet I believe. I'd say this is a strong month and one that is consider getting.

    Man, the windows PC interface for this is terrible. Having just built a new PC, I decided to test it out with Metro Exodus. 60Gb download. I've got to 30Gb successfully so far before something goes wrong and the download crashes and has to restart. I've also got to 15Gb and several attempts to about 2Gb. My internet does about 15Gb a day on the xbox app. I've switched to the windows store to do the download and am at 11.5Gb without a hitch so far today. Also the space has been allocated multiple times so has eaten about a third of my 500Gb SSD. I've had none of these issues with steam downloads.
  15. I came in to this thread struggling to think of anything immediately noteworthy from 2015. I stand corrected.
