  1. I must say I was a bit disappointed with the ending. I’ve enjoyed the series overall and thought it had some great highs. However the resolution just felt flat imo and tbh, like a total set up for a proper last series. One thing I especially feel didn’t pass the grade was the interrogation scenes. They just lose their impact and, well, interest when every question is followed by ‘no comment’. Anyway, I hope there’s another season. I feel like there must be, surely. But maybe Jed might be pulling a double double troll and simply does call it a day. If he does though, I
  2. I think there’s a real possibility that Nesbitt won’t even appear in this series at all, which would be amazing. Maybe he just pops up right at the end. Just a massive setup up for series 8.
  3. There’s no way Carmichael is H or ocg connected. I think she’s a Rottweiler just like Ted and that integrity of hers is being used by higher ups to remove him. Surely there’s got to be a season 8 after this. There’s no way everything can be wrapped up now in one episode. Well it can, but not in a good way!
  4. It’s a shame the discussion here seems to put the view that obviously print media is dying when in actuality I feel there’s a future in it. Sure it won’t reach the heights of the past but I do feel it can be profitable and made to work. Just like the physical game market, it’s small but maintainable. Anyway, don’t want to veer ot but I thought I’d raise my hand to say I still buy print mags. I still buy the occasional Custom PC same with PCPro and others. I still really miss Micro Mart too.
  5. Yep noticed that too. Definitely think there's something to it.
  6. Hnnnggnnnnnnhhhhhhhhh!! Great stuff!
  7. I think I'd rather have a Zero reunion/discussion tbh. That had a much more naive and childish/teen humour, Viz let's face it, which feels more approachable and inoffensive. Perhaps that's just me though. PC Zone was for obvious reasons very similar in its early years, but the whole lad stuff seems pretty inappropriate now. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was a great mag, but I feel it's difficult to distance the discussion of it with the laddish time it took place in. Maybe I'm just be more interested in the early/mid 90s games mag industry though!
  8. You've been robbed! No self respecting 464 owner should have to wander through life with such a weight. You are forbidden from taking the easy way out and simply watching a YouTube play through. The only way forward is to fire up the old girl and experience the magnificence as it should be! To feel the tension of being caught on that last sodding footstep, to have that tune drone its way into your brain forever! At least you got to play Harrier Attack!
  9. Ahhhh, what a game! A right of passage title for all 464 owners! Also, surely one of the greatest examples of cover art influencing weak young minds vs the reality of the gfx and gameplay. Dat music too!
  10. Just came here to post this. I think it looks great. Good to see Salma Hayek having a bigger role too. Looks like everyone is having a lot of fun. Daft nonsense, but enjoyable daft nonsense.
  11. You're clearly not doing lod right. The interviews and the insane linguistic acrobatics, as they try to catch perps out, is the best bit!!
  12. Well, I thought last nights episode was fantastic, classic lod stuff. And the ending was a cracker! I was really sad to hear about the Guardian's Sarah Hughes death though. Her blog on lod has always been a hugely enjoyable part of the watching experience for us.
  13. Crikey, I haven't been keeping up with the thread! Do you mean around £400 then? If I'd paid £10 I don't think I would have been able to sleep at nights. What a haul though, fantastic stuff. Someone knew their stuff, great to see them all together like that. NGPC games still the de facto best console game cases for me!
  14. Yup, it’s a sad state of affairs isn’t it. Unless you’re there at the beginning to lay down a preorder, you are locked out of the party. The whole physical edition business model seems to revolve around viewing titles as investments now.
  15. Ah man, I’d love any new version or update to still use Lightwave. In fact at this point Id say that LWs renderer did as much as any to create a stylistic tone/look that people associate with B5.
  16. This looks good. I loved their Bitmap Bros book so I’m tempted. Straight £30 for the book though for me. £20 extra for Dominic’s signature!? I can just imagine him scribbling his name out each time and saying ‘there’s another £20 smackers!’
  17. Yep I can understand that. However it seems far more on the usability scale than that Sega micro gg.
  18. This looks pretty neat! Anyone already got one? Would be interesting to hear more thoughts on it. I'd also like to know where they're made or being shipped from. Can't find anything about the company itself. https://funkey-s.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
  19. Amazing! Yep an A plus a gold star to you sir. Good grief, how far we have come. I want one!
  20. Here's a fun weekend puzzler. I was shown some old photos recently and saw this being played? I've absolutely no idea what game it is, I certainly don't remember seeing anything like it at the time. It obviously resembles an aircraft so I presume it is. Other than that and dates of around the very late 80s/early 90s, that's it. Extra bonus point for the Scalextric model pack, that one I do know! This is either going to be cleared up in a couple of posts or stump everyone!
  21. Personally, this is a really really easy question to answer. Nintendo sell their games for a sustainable real world price. And they keep them at that. They haven't taken part in the race to the bottom. They've continued to keep their standards high by chasing quality, driven by mostly fair prices. I've always applauded them hugely for it and they will continue to reap the rewards of such a trend bucking, forward thinking and sustainable strategy. This all feeds down into their sell on prices and keeps their perceived value high.
  22. Queens Gambit is a recent one. I could physically feel the amount of design thought that had been lavished on it. And dat music...
  23. Bah, that’s a shame. I was looking forward to tackling it on Hard, but if there’s no incentive I’ll likely just beat it on normal. I’m surprised really, given the absolute perfection they achieved recreating the genre and aesthetic. A ‘true ending’ should have been a necessity imo.
  24. Is there any cherry for 100% ing it on Normal? Different ending or screens etc?
  25. Tbh I don’t get all the hate for the last couple of seasons. I don’t think they matched the heights of the first 3 but they remain compulsive quality viewing, imo. I also think Jed is a fantastic writer too, so go figure! Although, I will admit that the Bodyguards ludicrously daft ending has shaken my confidence in him a little.. Anyway, really looking forward to series 6. Don’t let me down Jed!
