  1. Loved Actraiser, I think I bought it in a sale or secondhand, either way it was a great mash up of Sim City and Castlevania. Which reminds me, Sim City on the SNES was incredible considering what it was running on.
  2. New Guns N’ Roses track, Hard School Better than Absurd, I like it.
  3. Seconded, Orville is brilliant. Also loving Only Murders In The Building, could watch Martin & Short riffing off each other all day, plus Gomez I almost don’t care about the murder!
  4. Jamie Theakston has the best voiceover for these, keeps it calm and to the point. The guy from Cold Feet is a bit of a twat with his but the award for total voiceover dick is the Police Interceptors guy, what a knob. I will admit that these shows are my guilty pleasure, partly because my job is roadside enforcement so I work with Kent RPU/Commercial Vehicle Officers pretty frequently. I’ve also met the Scottish Officer who used to be in one of them all the time, any opportunity to drop that he was on the telly, he’d take it, regardless of how relevant it was
  5. To be fair I was expecting this, and I have tried lowering the settings, turning expert mode stuff off, but it just looked a bit…dull. What settings are you using so I have a reference?
  6. My set is this one https://www.philips.co.uk/c-p/43PUS6703_12/6700-series-ultra-slim-4k-uhd-led-smart-tv-with-ambilight-3-sided/support 4K but not OLED. Settings are Game Mode colour 70 contrast 90 sharpness 5 brightness 50 Expert Mode Settings colour enhancement Max colour temp Normal contrast mode Off dynamic contrast Max video contrast 100 gamma 0 ultra res On NR Max MPEG reduction Max Like I said, some people will be horrified by these settings, but they work for me.
  7. I would have to check but I think I use vivid and then adjust it from there. It took me ages to get the picture settings right for me, and I do think it is subjective as I suspect some would look at mine and think I was mad. Anyway, I’ll post my settings up tomorrow. What model Philips do you have?
  8. Couple of new trailers have been released Haters gonna hate and all that but I’ve enjoyed Craig’s run as Bond so looking forward to seeing this one.
  9. Anyone know why so much of The Metallica Blacklist album is unavailable in the UK?
  10. Equally stupidly excited & frustrated that it’s not out until next year. Seen a couple of reports that the visuals have been worked on and it looks better in the new trailer than the previous one, but I’ll be playing on the Switch so I know it won’t look quite as good as the XB/PS versions, but SW Galaxy in my hands, anywhere, for the win! (Zip it Steam-Deck owners!)

    All four of us saw this today, great fun, we all enjoyed it, obviously my PS4 obsessed son loved it and would have quite happily stayed in the cinema and watched it again! Yes, Reynolds carries it but the whole cast were obviously having great fun with this and it shows. Looking forward to this on Blu-Ray/Disney+ so I can pick up on all the background reference stuff I probably missed.
  12. Just watched the 3rd episode, The Woodworm Men, best one so far! Had us in stitches
  13. Along the same line, I’m still annoyed with @J.Pickfordthat Magnetic Billiards was never updated to run on any later iOS
  14. When I was growing up, Sunday’s were always church day. The Sunday school was at the vicarage and the Vicars kids were obviously part of the group. I remember them saying that they only watched BBC as their Dad said ITV was sinful and advertising encouraged false idols or something. Just another (of many) reason why I rejected religion.
  15. New (sort of) GN’R track Bit of mishmash track for me, standard Slash guitar, not that that’s a bad thing, with Axl channeling NiN and shouting the chorus with some screams that sadly he won’t be able to reproduce live. I don’t hate it, but not sure if I’m gonna love it. (and the video is pish)
  16. THPS 1+2 on the Switch, an early birthday present to myself. Great update, looking forward to really getting stuck into this again.
  17. Also seen this today, first family cinema trip for a long, long time. Good, if slightly predictable (figured out who Taskmaster was instantly, despite avoiding spoilers) but it was funny in places, some good action sequences and if this is genuinely Natasha/Scarlet’s last MCU appearance then it was a good send off.
  18. A new contender arrives...

    RIP Dusty Hill

    @HawklordWas that Ramblin Man, in Maidstone? I live just outside Maidstone and was gutted I couldn’t go that year, as well as amazed that ZZ Top played my home town.

    RIP Dusty Hill

    Damn fine bassist. RIP Dusty.
  21. Looks good to me, although I can see why critics of ‘remember this’ stuff won’t like it as it looks like
  22. Pokémon Unite is out for the Switch. https://unite.pokemon.com/en-gb/
  23. Stick Drift confirmed... https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2021/07/nintendo_faq_confirms_that_switch_oled_joy-cons_are_the_same_as_existing_controllers?fbclid=IwAR3aClFXzo5XcfUfqIGvOGHqxX9nPAT_osV6Igmz8y6TY91SXP4-460FNmE
  24. Oh for the room (and money) to have that, it is a thing of beauty
