  1. I thought it was a great game when I played and finished it on PS5. Luckily it passed me by when it first came out so I got to see it at its best. From what I’ve read it was broken at release, so he’s nobody to blame but himself. As others have said, anyone using “woke” as an insult is usually a knob.
  2. I’m still happy to buy records but the way that RSD has evolved can piss right off. Queue up in the rain for the privilege of paying stupid money for albums I’ve got? No thanks. Whilst a few releases do become instantly collectible and manage to demand high resale prices, it’s amazing how many end up in the sales and bargain bin.
  3. Still in stock at some stores. I’ve just done a click and collect order edit - I mean the PS5 version

    £3.50 at Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cartridge-Headshell-connector-connectors-cartridge/dp/B00L1E77F0 No idea if they're any good though.

    You should add this to your short list: https://www.audio-technica.com/en-gb/cartridges/type/moving-magnet/vm520eb £98.99 at Amazon edit - And the Ortofon Super OM10 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ortofon-OM-Super-Cartridge-Turntables/dp/B000CCEQM4 For some reason, the price on these has shot up over the last couple of days. Looking at camelcamelcamel they're usually about £82
  6. As much as I'd like to believe it, I do think Alan has given up on the music biz. I always wished he'd done more production after he left DM but it wasn't to be. I hope he's doing OK, he's pretty much radio silent these days.

    Great CD Revival

    If you like the Tori Amos cd get yourself a copy of Boys For Pele. It’s fantastic
  8. His work on Nemesis is peerless, one of my all time favourite series. Ro-busters and A.B.C Warriors too. A sad day for all who knew him and those that loved his work.
  9. Bloody hell, it's that time already... Time to dig through my collection and remind myself of what I've bought and listened to. List to follow, once I've got over the shock of it being nearly 12 months since I did the last one.
  10. It’s a shame that Iron Man 3 opened with it because Blue by Eiffel 65 would have been a great match for that trailer. The first one was vivid and colourful but blue people in blue water isn’t a great look. Blandora
  11. I’m old enough to remember the glory days of Spitting Image and other than the fact that this has puppets in it, it has nothing else in common. The original combined biting satire with light hearted moments, great voice work and fantastic writing. This was unfunny shite from a deeply unfunny man with impressions that nobody would have guessed if the puppets hadn’t all announced their own names first. It’s a shame that the money didn’t go towards launching new talent instead of flogging a dead horse.
  12. What an absolute piss take. I'm surprised they didn't go the whole hog and make the software features for redefining buttons a subscription service.
  13. The chances of me adding my credit card details to my PSN account are zero so no points for me
  14. Nobody posted Only Fools and Horses yet?

    Dredd 3D

    I'll bet there's been zero progress on the Mega City One series, would like to be proved wrong though. I think it would be an amazing world to base a series round, especially if they used some of the earlier stuff that really built it up and made it feel real and well fleshed out. I don't just mean the epics like The Cursed Earth or Judge Cal but even a story like Uncle Ump's Umpty Candy would make for a perfect standalone episode once the main characters had been established. The Rogue Trooper film had Duncan Jones behind it, I'm surprised that's been as quiet as it is.

    Depeche Mode.

    They are still stuck in that old school loop of press conference, tour announcement, single, album, tour etc.. There's never a single ready to go at the conference, it's always months away while they cash in on nostalgia and sell out the stadiums first. I always think that they're worried that their upcoming release will put the hardcore fans off so they sell tickets before anyone gets a listen. Nowadays, bands and artists drop new tracks & albums without so much as a minute's notice. It would be good for them to try something new for once instead of these teeny tiny teasers that drag on for ages.

    Depeche Mode.

    Thanks for that, I quite enjoyed the instrumental build up from the start of the video, it had a bit of depth to it. I seem what you mean about the Precious cover version though. I've no idea either but hopefully she'll bring something new to the party, rather than the same old distorted sounding tracks that all blend together from the last few albums. I don't think I've ever complained about any other band as much as I do about DM, even though I've loved them for 35+ years.

    Depeche Mode.

    I didn’t see the conference, did they play snippets of anything new? I can’t find anything online yet. I see that James Ford is producing again and shit drummer is still drumming. Oh dear. Totally agree on the cost point from @KartoffelKopf, stadium and arena gigs are eye gougingly expensive these days.

    Depeche Mode.

    New album "Memento Mori" (latin for remember that you [have to] die) is released Spring 2023 It's sad to see the mighty DM as a duo. I know Fletch wasn't the most musical of the bunch but it's weird without him, he was a real constant throughout their career. A quick moan from me - Looks like Anton has outdone himself yet again with the laziest logo yet, hope the actual artwork is a bit more inspired. Text taken from an article from Clash that was posted and then taken down: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2020 inductees Depeche Mode announced today at a special event in Berlin that they will be releasing a new album and embarking on a world tour in 2023. The Memento Mori Tour will support the band’s forthcoming 15th studio album, Memento Mori, due out in Spring 2023. On O2 or Virgin Media? Secure your Priority Tickets now here for the UK date at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 17th June 2023 ahead of the general sale. Dave Gahan and Martin Gore revealed today that the Live Nation-presented tour will begin with a special, limited series of North American arena dates starting March 23rd, before the band heads to Europe for their summer stadium tour. These limited North American dates will feature stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Chicago’s United Center, Los Angeles’ Kia Forum and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, among others. The band will then begin their European stadium tour on May 16th, with noted stops including the Stade de France in Paris, Berlin’s Olympic Stadium, Milan’s San Siro Stadium, and London’s Twickenham Stadium. The Memento Mori Tour will be Depeche Mode’s 19th tour and their first in over five years. The band’s most recent outing, the 2017-2018 Global Spirit Tour was its longest to date and was one of the year’s highest grossing tours, with the band playing to more than 3 million fans over the course of 130 shows across Europe and North America.
  20. That's a great looking panini press but how did those flat plates put those lovely brown lines on that bread?
  21. Well I for one can’t wait to play a specific level of a game against a load of randoms in a time limited challenge so that I can get a 3d model of Ratchet to show on my phone only

    Depeche Mode.

    Exciting times, but I didn’t expect anything so soon after Andy’s death. I’d be happy even if it was just a rerelease of Strange and Strange Too on Blu-ray
  23. +1 for DM reference. Image is cool too
  24. Thanks for that. I'm already part way through the second sidequest you mentioned but wasn't trying to finish it as I didn't realise it was going to be lucrative. I'd been giving the game some stick but stopped playing it as that business mini-game annoyed me. I couldn't face wandering the streets having random battles to build cash back up.
