Games / Re: Last game played...
« on: 12 February, 2019, 11:49:25 pm »
Rick and Morty VR - meh. Thought I was getting a steal for £12 on PSN Store, but it’s probably the weakest VR experience so far.  The story or comedy or whatever is really slowed down by the menial tasks set by Rick, and the VR space isn’t well thought out. Despite clearing a wide area to play in the game still sent me bumping into shelves and couches etc. Not one for fans of VR, or Rick and Morty.

Film & TV / Kingdom - Netflix

Blimey - Kingdom on Netflix! A Korean period drama set in feudal times, like Water Margin, but with SHITLOADS OF ZOMBIES!!!!

It’s bloody brilliant! With the emphasis on ‘bloody’.

Had to google the annual cover, which is not a good sign, as I immediately new exactly what the other covers were you discussed either side - If it was about money, why not get O'Neill to do the cover, and Smith could have done the interior page?

Yeah, definitely an odd choice. What a blistering cover it could have been with O’Neill on the front!

Apologies in advance for having the mic WAY too close to my mouth.

News / Re: RIP Ron Smith

So many more to mention, Sob Story, the Graveyard Shift, Blood of Satanus, Chopper, the list could go on. Special mention to the Daily Dredd's though which made me buy the Daily Star with my pocket money for many a year.

Thanks for everything Ron Smith RIP.

I think it was the Daily Star Dredds that cemented my move from 'read every comic' to 'read 2000AD and the entire back catalogue almost exclusively'.  I always used to read them every weekend on my paper round and was all like 'Damn, these are awesome!  Where can I read more?  Oh, 2000AD?  I remember that comic!' 

That was totally to do with the ludicrously zany artwork of Ron Smith.  I've been a huge fan of the Daily Dredds ever since and I'm never far away from a reprint.

I'm 5 episodes in and thinking of rationing the rest to one a day to eke it out a bit more. Loving it.

Awesome! Glad you’re enjoying it! I think it’s by far one of the best of Netflix’s home grown shows.

Such a treat!

Books & Comics / Re: Calvin and Hobbes and Tharg's Droids

Not sure if I should admit this, but (despite linking to radio programmes about it) I've never properly read Calvin and Hobbes...  I've been aware of it, flicked through the books a couple of times, and always thought it looked like something I should give more attention to, but somehow just never got round to it.  Seems like I should do something about that... soon...

Please do.  I've found that other classic funny-pages cartoons that I used to love (Garfield, The Far Side) seem a wee bit dated now, Calvin and Hobbes are as fresh as ever.  both scriptwise and artwise, Watterson leaves the rest in his dust.


You can get the entire back catalogue in a lovely volume set for about £40. In my eyes it’s worth quadruple that. Calvin and Hobbes is up there with the best comics ever made.

The play was better than the movie, but it was still good in my book. Just the whole twist thing doesn't come off as well.

It didn’t come off at all. It may as well have been Bobby stepping out of the shower.
