  1. To remind you not to Wii in your Xbox, presumably.
  2. Wreckfest! It's arcade-y but the handling is brilliant.
  3. You should, just to get the points!
  4. You mean you don't have a "starting up the Xbox" routine? - turn it on/wake it up - open the Game Pass phone app - launch whatever game you were playing last - wait for the two daily quests to pop (usually within seconds) - redeem those quests, plus any others that pop as a result - go to the console Rewards app - tick off whatever you can from the available daily/weekly/monthly quests - back to the home screen - start playing whatever you turned it on for in the first place It takes maybe two or three minutes a day.
  5. That didn’t do much for me. Being charitable, I assume it was riffing on tropes from a form of theatre that I know nothing about, and that all those references would be really clever and funny if I understood them. On the other hand, I don’t think I’m particularly unusual in not having that cultural knowledge. And it’s possible that even with that understanding, it would still just be a load of crap jokes. There’s usually a weak link in every series so let’s hope they’ve got it out of the way in the first episode this time.
  6. I think there was something like this is one of the Mario RPGs, either a Paper Mario or a Mario & Luigi.
  7. 9. Doom No, not one of these new-fangled 21st century Dooms, the original 1993 game. I never played it at the time or at all until I started it on the Switch last year, then again on the Series S. I'm terrible at shooters generally so I only played it on the easiest setting, which suited me because on most levels I could get the messy business of killing the enemies out of the way, and then get to exploring, which is more my sort of thing. Having said that, by the end even on easy the difficulty had obviously ramped up a bit and so had my skill, so I was tempted to start again on a
  8. I was playing Rain On Your Parade yesterday and got to a little between-levels scene where
  9. Perhaps in one of the episodes he breaks his leg, and has to recuperate in an apartment on Coruscant overlooking the senate building. While looking out of the window through his macrobinoculars one day, he witnesses a Jedi Master being thrown to his death from the Supreme Chancellor's office. They could call it The Day Mace Got Defenestrated.
  10. Also, there are no zips in the Star Wars universe. TRUFAX
  11. I’d be amazed if it’s set on Scarif. It’s much more likely that this will be about his missions before R1 as a rebel agent/spy, doing some of the “terrible things” for the rebellion he referred to. That seems like much more fertile ground for a series, rather than the five minute window between him falling off the tower’o’tapes and reappearing at the top to shoot Krennic.
  12. Everyone who complained about The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker needs to watch the Maggie Simpson crossover to see just how bad Star Wars spin offs can really get.
  13. Volume 2 of the post-Empire Strikes Back series is, if anything, even better than the first. The main thing it's getting right is the characters - Leia and Lando in particular are very well portrayed in this, and in Lando's case the story does a great job of keeping his relationship with the Rebels at the mutual benefit/mutual distrust stage. There's also a new Imperial antagonist (pictured on the cover) who has a very personal grudge against the Rebels in general and Leia in particular - there are echoes of Lost Stars here, and that's praise indeed in this thread. There are even callbacks to

    I liked the fact that Murphy used his speech as an opportunity to audition for a commentary job. Him and Virgo are going to have each other in stitches.
  15. We’ve watched this over the last few weeks. I thought both series were excellent, the second was probably a bit better than the first but there wasn’t much in it. We missed Pogo and Mom (and Hazel and Cha Cha) but now everything’s gone even more wibbly wobbly timey wimey they might all be back next series. I was slightly surprised that Five didn’t resurrect Lila with the rest of the gang, and then surprised again when she didn’t seem to be one of the Sparrows either. Unless I missed something!
