    I am perfectly fine with us finishing 7th. I hated the Prem after Laudrup left. Its way more fun in the Championship with a young team. The EPL isnt worth the long term financial hardship and footballing mercenaries that come with it.



    Monk's full season was quite an enjoyable ride I thought! Highest ever league position! But, yeah, the football took a nose dive after Laudrup left.


  2. I've been a big fan of The Greatest Generation podcast over the last few years. Their next gen reviews have been really entertaining. But hearing them gush over Discovery has made me question whether to continue listening to them. I really don't understand the genuine enthusiasm.

    Yeah I'm not keen on that. Bullets are fucking bullets. Ping enough of them at something and it should fall the hell over.


    Yes and no. I mean a shotgun isn't going to penetrate metal armour on a robot in the same way a high calibre rifle will. Whereas a closeup shotgun to flesh is gonna cause way more damage than a single rifle bullet.



    Either way, my guess is that it's just a design decision to stop players from just pimping up one single Weapon and using that throughout the whole game. I made my way through new colossus just using the armour piercing upgrade on the battle rifle. It was all you needed. 

  4. Not feeling terribly optimistic as a Swansea fan. New manager just hired with no senior-team management experience, offloading almost the last of our premier league players, little to no chance of any major signings. I think we'll just about survive in the middle of the bottom half of the table but I think there's little to no chance of a promotion. Not too much to get excited by!

  5. I remember the first time I played it. It was at the Hereford May Fair (an annual event where the main streets are closed and turned into a giant funfair) and I would have been 8 or 9. I was so disorientated and in awe of what I'd just played that, walking out of the temporary arcade, I stepped right into a pile of fresh human vomit that was lying on the floor 


    There, that's my memory!

  6. There are quite a few games I've had that, if you visit the play store on a pc web browser, will allow you to select your shield as an install target (even if they don't appear when you search on the native play store on the shield). Some of them even give proper banners on the homescreen too. 


    Sideloading the apkpure app (which just mirrors the apks that are on google play) is a good bet for others though. That will happily let you install unmodified apks so you can still link to google play services and get your save-games/progress/achievements etc working. Going via more dodgy stores like aptoide often gets you modded apks instead...

    No consoles or sky or cable box or anything? :blink:



    These do look like impressive little things, but the controller looks massive and uncomfortable.


    Yep, nothing else. 


    Our cable provider (ComHem, I live in Sweden) has an app that you can install on it and stream all live channels (and catch up services). They gave us a tivo box too but i've never actually plugged it in to the telly as I didn't see any reason to. Plus there are apps for netflix/spotify/iplayer etc etc for all other telly and music stuff. The Shield has enough grunt that all the apps are nice and snappy to use, unlike the lag-fest of using most apps natively  installed on smart tellies.


    I sold my xbox a while ago and just stream my PC games to the telly via the Shield now (either from my local PC in the spare room on Gamestream, or cloud streaming on GeForce Now). The controller's actually really nice for gaming. It looks like a nightmare but is pretty good. But you can use ps4/xb1 pads wirelessly on it too if you prefer.  

  8. Nvidia Shield for me, since it does so much more than emulation too. It has your Netflix/iPlayer etc, plus local PC game streaming on Gamestream and remote PC streaming on GeForce Now, and all kinds of dodgy video streaming on Kodi/Morpheus/Plex etc. And Android gaming if you want it :)

  9. Anyone played it? The bad spectrum conversion of Kung Fu Master was so disappointing to me in my youth! I remember reading the bad review in Crash (56% if I remember!) trying to convince myself that maybe it was still worth a purchase. 


    It wasn't.


    Sooooo slow in comparison to the arcade!
