  1. I was worried from initial reports about this. So much so I’ve not taken it out of its shrink wrapping as I thought I might send it back if it was that bad. rllmuk has restored my faith*, I’m gonna open it! *not a phrase we see very often
  2. I love that Gasly and Albon gave Perez a little grief and let their boy get home as well
  3. Bottas should be in a 70s cop show
  4. State of it, I’ve tuned in to my recorded “Japanese Grand Prix Replay” and it’s just the Chequered Flag show and my actual Grand Prix recording is missing in action. The replay programme is still on air as such. WTF Sky.
  5. I may watch too much Special Victims Unit (I DEFINITELY watch too much…) but it makes you wonder what maybe happened to her to be so broken.
  6. Thanks Wiper! I was only playing FFXV on the Xbox itself (and would continue to do so I think, when I go back to it). I can safely cancel and save another £11 for now then! Just trying to only pay for subs when I use them now
  7. Hey peeps sorry for not reading back, hoping someone can help me with a quick query. I have Game Pass Ultimate but I'm thinking of cancelling as I mostly play PC games at the moment. My main concern is my save game data for games I have played on Game Pass. If I cancel my sub, but later re-activate it, do my saves still exist somewhere somehow? For example, for Streets of Rage IV. Secondarily, I really hope my FFXV save still exists, I think it's left Game Pass now - I finished it in 2020 but was going to come back to it at some point and dabble in some of the endgame content. I didn't buy it outright, I was just playing it whilst it was there. If at some point I bought it outright, would my save still be <somewhere> ? Should I buy it before I cancel GamePass or does it not matter?
  8. I remember @moosegrindergot me a Ni No Kuni (I think?!?) book I had asked for on the off chance and one day when I walked in he presented it to me I had half forgotten about it and I was mega excited. I still have it
  9. Your piss arse little indie was awesome

    Women's EURO 2022

    Running theory is that they’re booked for disrupting play not disrupting sponsors as the player needs to put top back on again so takes time. Load of nonsense either way. We haven’t come that far though - Lineker posted a stupid tweet which he’s since deleted. What I see and know is that you see women wearing less on the other channels running 100m, or at your own gym. As a woman it’s a statement of the normal now for those who are comfortable enough with their bodies to do it. And more people doing it will make others more comfortable too. My Instagram is full of gym influencers of all shapes and sizes in sports bras and shorts. Something that is getting on my nerves is people hating on other sports that people enjoy. I KNOW it sucks that women and girls were forced into certain sports at school, but that doesn’t mean those sports suck, and England have a fair crack at winning some in the commonwealth games too. We should be able to celebrate participation in all sport and the victory that this is for that rather than doing it at the expense of others.
  11. I’m glad LFC are back up in the WSL! After this week I was tempted to go along to an open training session near me. I used to play at school (I was one of the lucky ones it seems - at primary school I was able to play with the boys along with a couple of other girls, heartily encouraged, and cricket too which i was awesome at… at high school I went to a girls school and we had a team but it’s true interest was limited so we played across year groups) and loved it, along with other sports. BUT they train on Mondays when I play netball I am a little annoyed that everyone is hating on netball so much over on Twitter right now I love both.
  12. Starting this up for a thread about the sports themselves I’m loving having so much to watch each day, netball is my winner so far having recently got back into it. Cycling always delivers (though I was confused to see an English tandem pilot for Wales who has also competed for Scotland, I didn’t realise they were cross-country, I wonder what sort of arrangements are in play?) except for the horror crash today Will be tuning in at 8pm for more netball and I do recommend giving it a go! It’s a very tactical thing, unlike a lot of other sports the challenge isn’t in necessarily scoring the goal but getting it into the D. Usually the shooters will score (most sport a 85% scoring average).
  13. I know Adrian is fairly rubbish but I just can’t help but like the guy, it makes me happy when he’s part of our success.
  14. Did anybody listen to the Never Strays Car (usually Far) podcast? I hardly watched the Tour this year but I loved the podcast! Ned Boulting, David Millar and Pete Kennaugh with special guest Lizzie Deignan for part of it. Basically them chatting about the race and all manner of nonsense as they made their way from the end of the stage to the next… in the car.
  15. I haven’t given this much thought beyond gaming for me being a fairly cheap hobby that keeps me from going out spending loads on other things, to some extent. I play a couple of MMOs which always mean I have something to do when I’m bored. Yes it means my PC is on a lot but to my mind does it make much difference if it’s a PC or I’m watching TV? I dunno. I work to save money elsewhere to prioritise the things that are important to me for my own mental well-being. I’ve sold a lot of old stuff and put money aside for the incoming price hike so I feel fairly well prepared to cover this off for the winter.
  16. Crisis Core holds such a special place for me. I only played through it once but it was one of those games that made me so glad I bought the system it was on. Can't wait to revisit it. For anyone who is a bit confused about Zack or why anyone cares I strongly recommend playing original FF7 again before it comes out. With all the 2x 3x speed and all that it's a cinch to play through these days and well worth the effort
  17. I started playing (again, again) a few weeks ago and this time it actually stuck! I’m a level 64 summoner on Spriggan where I got the XP boost and I’m part way through the patch content before Heavensward. I LOVE this game. I think I might see about levelling an alt class a bit, not sure what yet though. Of course I have Scholar at level 64 too (such a neat idea that) so would aim for something a bit different, one that starts at 30 or 50 I guess.
  18. Is this Max's statement on the situation with the fans' behaviour at the circuit? Jeeeeeeeeeez......
  19. Podium is weird. Bet Red Bull put in a complaint about whatever Charles was needing to do with the pedal
  20. Yes Charles. My opinion of Max just declines week on week. This time with the reports of the awful behaviour of his fans in the stands, a better man would be speaking out against it, asking for everyone to treat everyone with respect. But I doubt he gives a shit. All fans should be able to go to these races and feel safe. Edit to add: whether it is all his fans, or “Austria”*, or whatever. It’s been attached to him so he has a role to play in speaking out against it IMO. *I’m trying not to make blanket statements but when I visited Vienna I encountered a number of outwardly racist people which was pretty shocking to me, knowing I was a visitor in their country to essentially open with that!
  21. Yeah I'm not the target demographic for these sort of mods.
  22. Thankls @Qazimod and @Sarlaccfood ... sort of seems like I can spend my £50 better elsewhere... Like in a savings fund for a PS5
