    It’s the most undemanding game… but also so, so compulsively addictive. There is a moment of stress when you see the objects caked in grime, but that soon subsides as you realise you get to clean it. And the levels look pristine once you get washing. It’s a beautifully calming way to while away hours.


    Genuinely, and not in an ooh jump on a trend way because it’s doing something wacky or fleetingly novel, it’s one of the most enjoyable games I’ve played in the last decade, if not longer.




    Agreed - although I think it does dole out other moments of stress (in a good way/challenge), especially on the bigger levels when you are either


    1) How much is left a) in general or b) a particularly big thing to clean that isn't that easy


    2) Where the fuck is the last bit of dirt or the last thing I need to clean.

    My point is that games unfortunately don't do progressive. Even a token effort puts it above much of the rest.

    Although other RPGs might have throw away bits of dialogue that suggest a minor NPC character is trans that aren’t reported as the creator of the IP isn’t very vocal on Trans rights.

  3. If they get relegated to the Championship we get to see if Haaland can do the business at Stoke on a Wednesday night.


    I assume Juventus and Real Madrid are on the phone to Man City right now - how about Super League 2 then?

    I think it'll review as a "good" game. You know, that sort of 7/8 out of 10.


    But I think most outlets will simply review it with barely a mention of the creator. Games press is morally very weak in my opinion and if they can turn a blind eye and continue as usual they absolutely will. Reviewing it without mention sells more issues or gets more readers unfortunately I suspect.


    I hope to be surprised.


    And outlets and named reviewers will got a lot less grief/abuse if they ignore the issues rather than any sort of comment against Rowling especially if they legit don't think the game is any good.


    Rowling is bad and this game isn't very good - 5/10 will result in a mega pile on that its being voted down because they don't like Rowling.

  5. We missed a penalty, but in the 9 league games since the World Cup - we’ve scored 4 goals and 3 of them were in the first two games so since Christmas we’ve scored once in 7 games and that was a late goal against Wigan who then equaliser in the 96th minute.


    Relegation beckons and bottom 3 coming soon as everyone around us has games in hand and 4 of the bottom 6 play each other next week so at least two teams are picking up points.


    Cant even enjoy Swansea losing 4-3 at home as it moves Brum clear.

  6. Saw this lunchtime and thought it was really good.


    I went in pretty cold and thought it was a horror/comedy, but it isn't remotely.  


    Very tense at times and keeps you guessing to a degree, but its more about the characters than the situation and they do a good job in getting you to care.  Bautisita is especially excellent.


    4/5 and I quite fancy watching it again.






  7. I assume Man U will struggle to get rid of him without paying up his contract of all charges are dropped despite what footage was released.


    If they do get shot then he’ll be playing at championship level at the very least next season for someone.

    While I do appreciate the thread is noisy and if you're just here to talk about the game you have to ignore a lot of posts. But that said, go back and look at the last 10 or so pages of this thread. People have posted things about the game, we've had several trailers, some gameplay footage etc yet a lot of the "Can we just talk about the game" posters aren't really engaging with that and seem more interested in saying "can we just talk about the game" over and over.


    Plus the game isn't even out or even been reviewed so how much is there to discuss - its currently the equivalent of moaning that people are posting too much about Zachary Levi possibly being anti-vax in the Shazam 2 thread instead of talking about the unreleased film.


    If the game comes out and someone posts - "played an hour this is really good" and someone replies - "you hate trans people you fucking cunt" and there is a pile on then that should be looked at.  If there is parallel discussions in the thread about the game and about JKR/the issues around buying it then what is really the difference to the game being a buggy, unplayable mess on PS5 but running fine on Xbox and there being parallel discussions running in the thread on that.

    Big difference in the reach/impact/cultural relevance of Orson Scott Card and J K Rowling though.


    That said, I didn't agree with the dedicated game topic being hijacked almost immediately. I'm not going to buy the game and am not going to support J K Rowling but as well-intentioned as it might be, I don't think refusing people the option to discuss the game as a product without being constantly interrupted is particularly helpful or productive either. 


    Telling people they can still discuss the game in this thread if they want to feels like an argument made in bad faith to me when there is a very deliberate and persistent attempt to disrupt it at every opportunity.


    Are they being interrupted though - there was an immediate post in that thread asking for people to boycott the game that could have been ignored.  Maybe the poster intended to post the same thing over and over and over and over again (although there was not indication of that) every time anyone mentioned flying looked cool, but at that point it was a single post and then numerous posters had to take issue with that or start asking question.

    Alright 😫


    Good news is we’ve signed a giant striker from the Danish league as our one and only signing during the window who they appear to be trying to offload.


    But as we’ve only scored 21 goals in the league all season and 1 since Christmas then he can’t be any worse that what we have!

    Trying to buy Fernandez for £110m+, selling Jorginho to Arsenal for £12m.


    Hear me out here, but I'm not entirely sure that Chelsea know what they are doing.


    They seem to have gone full Football Manager with a money cheat on, but they can't buy ANYONE they want so they are just searching for anyone good who is 'interested' then offering all the money regardless if they have any idea where they will play.

  12. Chelsea reported to have bid £105 million for Enzo Fernandez which, alongside the FFP issues, would mean they were paying 10 times as much as what Benfica brought him for at the start of THIS season!

  13. My 10 year old wouldn't leave the house this morning for Breakfast club - this isn't a mis-post to the Things that F*ck you off Thread as its because I booted up the Xbox to download the game - showed him and after briefly questioning the graphics - grabbed the control off me, got sucked in and wouldn't go anywhere until he completed The Dam.


    So they have a new convert.

    Agreed.  It's no surprise that the big clubs are the ones losing the money, because they feel that they have to buy with big fees and big wages for reasons of, well, ego really.  And the sums involved means that when it comes time to move those players on, no-one except another Big Club can afford them.


    Barca are a billion in debt, losing all their players and pulling tricks to satisfy the regulations.  They are top of La Liga and signed Lewandowski. There is no justice.


    They are all hoping for a Super League to save them.  And they are going to get it, the bastards.


    What I still don't get with the Super League is why the English clubs would even contemplate getting into bed with Juventus and to a lesser extent Barca and Real.


    Who was going to remotely regulate this league - and while I'm sure none of the greedy fuckers would be bothered about FPP, etc - how long before it all kicks off because Juve are being dodgy and most of the clubs are having a tantrum because they've realised that you can't all be top of the super league and how come Real are getting the most lucrative kick off times for TV sales and we never agreed to fly to Qatar to play Barcelona on a Monday night, etc, etc.
