Games / Re: Last game played...

Regardless. I very much looking forward to Oddworld: Soulstorm (remake of Abe's Exodus, similar to New n tasty, but much grimmer).

Looking forward to this too, always loved the first game but somehow never played any of the sequels. New n' Tasty was brilliant but didn't realize they were continuing with the remakes, should be good!

I just finished Gris on the Switch and absolutely loved it. It's a gorgeously illustrated and animated platform puzzler, gameplay-wise not entirely dissimilar to but with a much gentler atmosphere than games like Inside and Limbo (which I do love too). It feels great, looks incredible, sounds incredible (the music is fantastic), it's a bit of a masterpiece really. Short at about 3-4hrs, which means it didn't outstay its welcome and kept me fully absorbed throughout.

Been awhile since I found a show so in my wheel house I ended up binging the whole series in one sitting. But thats exactly what happened with AMC The Terror

Where did you see it - is it only on BT?  I loved the book.

Can anyone tell me which Megazine(s) featured a "sexy ostrich" calendar?

Asking for a friend...

Me too, but then Mean Angel started saying it. I've just read some Batman v Lobo Elseworlds special; it's terrible.  Bisley clearly didn't give a shite at that stage.

The 3rillers has always been something that was either a hit or a miss. I do not mind the 3rillers but "The Scored Zone" felt nothing thrilling about it, it just felt ok. It was like an advertisement in your favorite show which you mostly forget the second it stop airing.

There for me is always scope for both the 3rillers and the Future Shocks.

Where the hell did the word 'bastich' come from ?
I heard it from Lobo.

What Radiator said!

Mario Kart, Zelda, New Super Mario Bros, Mario Odyssey, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, all the obvious big hitters from Nintendo will be fine for the kids, and fun for you too! If the kids are into runners in particular there is a game called Runner3 on there that's the latest in a series of prestigious rythmic runner games -

Super Meat Boy Forever is out in April, and that's going to be a runner unless they changed it! The original SMB was fantastic so expectations are high. May contain some light potty humour

Thanks both that's really useful, will defo check out those game. A colleague was also kind enough to share his Amazon wish list for other things to go with his new Switch... this made me want to cry a little as they all seemed from useful to essential and ... well there's a lot!

as a biopic it beats Bo Rhap purely on the subtlety of the screenplay. Amazing lead performances.
I'd imagine the fact it doesn't have a lot of dreadfully shit music in it probably helps too.

That is getting to be a major issue now for me, the constant musical emotional cues and or the overwhelming Dr Who nonsense drives me to the exit/off switch

Agreed.  Anyone remember those awesome days when there were parts of a movie when all you could hear was maybe what the characters were saying, or sometimes even just background noise?  Not the constant ebb and flow of a 100 piece orchestra?

I long for those days.  I think I'll go rewatch 2001: A Space Odyssey.  The silence in that is such a breath of fresh air.

PS - Looking forward to seeing Stan and Ollie!  Heard nothing but good things.
