  1. Played this the other day (two player). I liked it although I think I might prefer some of the variants with the different ways to use the action stones. It's definitely very pretty. Jonny, think it's called Tao Long.
  2. Pfft, coops. I got bought Photosynthesis for xmas. It's beautiful. Don't really play much anymore since I moved away from my regular gaming group but I look forward to playing it one day.
  3. Fuck's sake. Way to make my point I guess.
  4. It's not fan rivalry. I mostly quite liked Liverpool before that incident. It was a major and high profile step backwards for anti-racism in football and everyone involved: club, players, manager, and a large portion of the fan base who cheered it along should be ashamed. I take your point about learning from mistakes and I think you are right. But until there is some sort of apology from the club, rather than ignoring it and honouring some of those involved, criticism is well justified. It's bizarre to me that acknowledging the last high profile case of racial abuse involving Liverpool should still cause such an outraged response, not at what happened, but at someone pointing it out. It would be nice (if incredibly depressing that it should be required) if this incident made some people think about their past actions and attitudes to racial abuse. Fan tribalism being what it is, I think that might be the only thing that will reach some people.
  5. It's transparently bullshit that the players thought he'd been unfairly accused. The words used weren't in dispute. The t-shirts and players' statement weren't a response to the accusation, which had happened some time earlier, but the punishment. The article makes multiple references to Steven Gerrard, who was club captain at the time and must bear some responsibility for the officially released players' statement. The club has never apologised for their actions (happy to be corrected if that's wrong?) and have even gone so far as to name a fucking stand after the manager who participated in the disgraceful episode. It's not a cheap shot, I have the utmost sympathy for what Rhian Brewster has gone through and admiration for his willingness to speak out about it. I hope that some people at his club read that and are suitably ashamed of themselves.
  6. Rhian Brewster can certainly complain and I think that interview is brave and does him a great deal of credit. Good on him. Liverpool as a club, however, are in no position to complain, given their past response to racial abuse.
  7. Fair play indeed, although I can only assume if action was taken against the Spartak player, Liverpool would all wear t-shirts defending his right to racially abuse the opposition.
  8. Forgot about the wildcard rule change. Pretty annoying as I have 2 free transfers this week and would like to have 2 available next game week, but using the wildcard automatically cancels your banked free transfer. So I'll probably just burn the wildcard. Think the original rule was much better. Meant there was a real risk/reward to an early wildcard and put more pressure on good initial team selection.
  9. I'm a few points ahead of you now, but I notice your squad value is much better and that will probably tell by the end of the the season. We should start a new league again next year, rather than just renewing it again. I'm pretty sure half the people have never posted here. And the guy at the top is a two-team cheat.
  10. Have you added bonus points? Could they save you? First week of cup being one week earlier, therefore midweek games, therefore loads of rested players, is really going to fuck loads of people.
  11. Don't judge the entire sport by Team Sky's shitty standards.
  12. The chances of doping not being widespread in football are minute.
  13. Anyone able to link to a current, idiot-proof guide to adding games? Need Super Tennis and Pilotwings on there, but I have zero experience with this sort of thing. Ta.
  14. Two hours late, prerecorded when it was meant to be live, and the four big teams all kept apart. The only thing that makes that not look rigged is that you would assume if they were rigging it they would do so with a higher degree of competence.
  15. Literally nothing, ever, and probably never will.
  16. Super Tennis is the best tennis game ever made. Its omission is a big oversight.
  17. Yeah, the fact that strikes are basically pointless is a bit weird. It also means that Sony's shitty deal for exclusives hurts PS4 players almost as much as Xbox players, as its main impact is reducing variety in the NIghtfall.
  18. Nightfalls are 20 mins to half an hour. Raids pretty open ended depending on how long you take to work stuff out, but don't have to be done in one sitting.
  19. Yeah, and you could probably do most of the nightfalls without even bothering with voice comms. Anyway, if you aren't playing some of the content, there is a limit to how much you can do each week, yes, but it's pretty high! You can get engrams that advance you for Call to Arms, Flashpoint, Clan XP, plus Clan ones for Nightfall and Cruicible at least, presumably. So five engrams at higher level minimum, even without NF/Raid or using an alt. If progressing past a certain power level had no restrictions than half of the player base would have been at max level within a few days of release and complaining that there was no point to the endgame because it didn't give any rewards.
  20. Destiny has always been primarily a cooperative online game though. Surely this isn't a surprise to anyone? What are we asking for, no modes that require close cooperation (so no end game). Or just for the endgame to have no meaningful rewards? If anything about this is a surprise, it's that you can get to max level pretty easily, albeit it slower, without doing any endgame stuff at all. As for Iron Banner, it doesn't exist yet, and it may well be very easy to get to 300/305 before it does. But really, surely there are better games to play if you just care about PvP. And surely doing well in Iron Banner will also require voice Comms. I really think Bungie have gone well beyond reasonable expectations in producing a game that has so much to do even for people who are intent on not speaking to anyone or are not able to. There's fucking shit loads of stuff! If you've played the hundred hours or whatever it takes to exhaust all that and have decided you don't want to do the other stuff, it's hardly the game's fault.
