  1. Agree, it feels pretty formulaic in that respect. That said the moment Elvis opened his mouth, I was all in.
  2. Not meaning to bump from quite so long ago but my first thought was that she reminded me of Fran from FFXII, who actually was inspired by Bjork. But it’s not the same actress evidently.
  3. As with the first game, this is addictive as anything. Four hours in already, prologue done. It does run poorly though, puzzled why there’s a bit of a delay loading menus or Party Chat and such. And yeah, story is seemingly usual JRPG Crystal fare but that’s what I’m here for Enjoying/10. The battle and job systems are some of the best the genre has to offer, it’s great fun mixing the classes around.
  4. Mine just arrived after I forgot it was coming out and Nintendo sent me a reminder! Got the set from Amazon with the stickers and whatnot, and I’m largely oblivious to anything about it. Yay! Now I just need to decide whether or not to power on through FFXII first, or abandon it (again). I’m 18 hours in...
  5. Largely agree with @Anne Summers however there are some absolute bangers in series 6, if you appreciate the lighter hearted episodes (Dreamland, How The Ghosts Stole Christmas, The Unnatural, Arcadia, Three of a Kind) plus some other great one shots like SR 819. The mythology stuff though had got a little silly. For me, Season 7’s Closure is the mark of where it really starts to lose its stride, that said I do still really enjoy 8/9 in their own very different way. Disney+ has the 9 seasons which represent the original run. The movies are both on there too, with the f
  6. Okami HD Yes, it can feel slow in places when you are watching cut scenes and yes perhaps it is longer than it needs to be, but it never truly feels either of these things to me. Completed in around 30 hours for the second time in my life, and what a treat it was again. The ending still feels like one of the most rewarding gaming experiences there is to be had (essentially every moment from when you step up to the final encounter). Nothing else comes close. The characters, the music, the payoff. If you haven’t ever played it, get on it
  7. Worth giving it a go for sure. I’m a huge fan and I’m really pleased to see it has a decent remaster here, my iTunes series 1 doesn’t look this good.
  8. I found Jessie’s Theme i am happy
  9. Anyway, on Wanda’s voice, (spoilers up to and including episode 5)
  10. The real reason I’m stepping down from committee.
  11. I thought I caught a touch of this edit: argh, what is wrong with my spoiler tags edit2: sod it, you'll never know.
  12. Right I've just gone through episodes 1-5 after just "seeing what it was like". This is awesome. Bettany and Olsen are spectacular, beyond brilliant. It's entertaining and funny and tragic and engaging and addictive. Also: I've never really read many Marvel comics, I've seen most of the movies to date (mostly only once) and I thought I recognised one of the characters but wasn't sure, though seeing them confirmed here I'm kinda like "Oh huh, cool." It's obvious there's loads here for die hard fanatics but as a casual passerby my lack of knowledg
  13. DS9 - Millennium Millennium: Fall of Terok Nor/War of the Prophets/Inferno (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00B0X0S26/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_34QT4QB82C1TAVPJ2RY1 edited to change link as the original I posted basically told the story Anyway I’m a fan of the first book in particular, the thing that I adore about these books is that it really feels true to DS9 and I could hear the actors in my head
  14. Well yes, but it came across as if we had some sort of actual choice. We’re fooked.
  15. Well the defence have been decimated by injury, Matip is only just back so it’s no surprise he didn’t feature in the fixture that’s obviously the least cared about.
  16. So I’d like to know if, a few days on, the following songs have been niggling at you... Chemical Plant Zone Casino Night Zone Sky Chase Zone I’ll give you Starlight Zone though, but the above three from Sonic 2 are still
  17. Prop Hunt is the funniest thing I’ve played in years. Absolute tears of laughter.
  18. Uncharted 1 - Drake’s Fortune Well, I completed it once before on PS3 but it’s been so long, that I’d like to count it again as my completing a game counts as a victory. So it shows it’s age in having square textures and blocks to jump on, and compared to later editions it’s a bit obvious that you can’t hang out with buddies for too long for technical reasons, but all the same it’s still bloody brilliant. Except for... those guys. You know the ones. Where you feel like you’re playing a Resident Evil game instead. Stressful! Uncharted has always
  19. Help, I’m a n00b, what am I meant to be doing with GW 18 and 19? I have all my chips eg Free Hit and Bench Boost but I’m not too sure what to do? If I use Free Hit to fill my squad for week 18 with people who are actually playing, does it return to what it currently is for week 19 (which I wouldn’t be super unhappy with)? Note I am not in serious contention for rllmuk league so helping me won’t screw anyone over however I have an opportunity to take advantage of my worn league #1 not paying attention....
  20. Yeah I just finished Uncharted 1 again after firing it up yesterday on the remaster collection Yeah, it’s dated, it’s simplistic but it still holds up well and the story still has that hook. And the music is brilliance.
  21. So I find I’m not playing long stints of this online on my own, as it’s stressful but it is very good and very slick (Series X). I’ve been playing a playlist of all modes basically and I had a domination map with 6 points today, first time, all spread out on a big ol’ map. Reminded me of Battlefield and it was really, really cool! Have to do a bit more of those. Did another mission on single player campaign too, think I made a bad choice in it but nevermind.
  22. Speaking of Houllier, I can’t help but feel like the lads really delivered against Palace considering the news came out that week. All a bit flat since, tired I guess, miserable world we are in right now. The whole league has been a bit drab for a couple of weeks especially if we compare back to when it all started.
  23. OK I mostly live in a box (no sky sports and no BT sport), but I’m a little bit in love with this Newcastle keeper. Seems a really top chap.
