  1. What is their opposing argument? I assume it has something to do with the rate of change. Manic Miner felt distinctly primitive in 2003, whereas the core gameplay of Animal Crossing, Burnout, etc. has changed only slightly during the past 15 years. On the topic of The Games Machine, I'm amazed that the Italian edition continues to be published. I wonder if there's anyone who has bought it for the entire 33+ year run.
  2. I stumbled across a trailer for a new TV series based upon Dan Brown's Lost Symbol book. I recall various announcements about it being adapted as a movie screenplay a decade ago, before being abandoned in favour of Inferno, but hadn't realised it had been adapted for television. Initial reviews are fairly poor, with a Rotten Tomatoes audience rating of 62% at the moment. The first season consists of 10 episodes, with half already aired in the US. I compared the book's plot to a guide for episode 1-6 and it looks like they're covering the key plot points of the book in these 10 parts, though there are notable differences between the book and TV show that could allow it to be extended and blended with later books in the timeline. (If there is a season 2).
  3. Did Archer have a catchphrase in Enterprise? I recall "Let's go" in the pilot, though didn't notice it in later episodes.
  4. https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/quantum-leap-reboot-conversations-scott-bakula More reboot rumours.
  5. It's great to see M'Benga and Chapel making an appearance in this new series. I'm actually surprised to discover Dr M'Benga appeared in only two TOS episodes. He had such a clearly defined role in the Enterprise's medical hierarchy that I assumed he was a semi-regular cast member. (Disclaimer: I only watch the original series when it's on TV and probably see the same episodes repeatedly).
  6. It looks like they're filming more external shots in London. I have to admit I hadn't realised Michael Keaton was reprising his role as Batman. Den of Geeks has a very short interview with him https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/michael-keaton-batman-return-the-flash-movie/
  7. Retro Gamer is released on time. Woah, woah, woah.
  8. Also, Atari ST better than Amiga? Heresy!
  9. I find your lack of faith... disturbing (and other Star Wars puns). The subscriber cover looks great this month.
  10. New Sega magazine, anyone? https://www.sega-mania.com/
  11. New 10-part Star Wars anime series to begin on Disney+ in September 2021. https://gizmodo.com/star-wars-visions-first-teaser-puts-a-japanese-lens-on-1847226050
  12. Can't... look... away....
