Downloaded demo of Project Octopath Traveller (I guess it's a working title) and am loving it.

And as Teen (nee Tiny) Tips said "Labo isn't really aimed at us... But that's not going to  stop us getting It, is It?"

To be fair to Hollywood, a lot of Britain is happy to rewrite this bit of history.

A terrible politician who couldn't even win an election in the UK against bolsheviks mere months after winning WW2, Winston Churchill is fetishised uncritically in Darkest Hour, and with almost supernatural synchronicity, I checked Twitter after seeing the film and and some Irish guy was doing a poll about what people thought of Winston Churchill, and obviously the usual minor incidents blown up out of all proportions were being tossed about, like his founding the Black And Tans, his Indian genocide, deploying tanks against Scottish strikers, "I hate Indians they are a beastly people with a beastly religion", the Bengal famine being the fault of Indians for "breeding like rabbits", his military campaign against Afghan civilians including women and children, his targeting civilians during the war, his internment and rape and torture and murder of Kenyans - you know, the usual Trot whataboutery and fake news, but Darkest Hour is having none of that, it shows the real Churchill: man of the people, salt of the Earth, misunderstood by his own party who wanted to kowtow to the Nazis and undermined by socialists of the Labour Party, including the literally frothing-at-the-mouth Atlee.
Darkest Hour is basically 2 hours of Churchill being wanked off in front of you in an embarrassingly unironic way to the point that even if you know absolutely nothing of what Churchill did to non-English subjects of the British Empire - especially the ones that come in darker hues - this is borderline parody stuff, the first few minutes alone making me think of Churchill: The Hollywood Years, only this is arguably funnier as long as you never remind yourself it's supposed to be taken seriously.

Hollywood is forever rewriting history dumping historical accuracy in favour of a good yarn.Churchill is synonymous with the Victory in WW2 so anything that detracts from that is ignored.

My first double-dip is here, but with SMS having provided rescanned artwork for the Black Hole segments its not entirely crazy to be buying!

Oh that sounds interesting, where did you hear about that and are there any further details?

(is there a reason why Dexter's eyes are white and he has a FONY tattoo?)

He's had a device called a "Headcase" installed which beams TV shows and movies directly into his brain.  The original "Sony" version got fried by an EMP pulse so he had a bootleg version fitted (hence Fony/phony).

Anyone else selling one?
