    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Mile Jedinak has scored Australia's last five competitive goals. Four were penalties, the other a free kick.

    I can see why it was given - his hand was in a position to block the header. Handball is such a grey area even with VAR though and I'd be raging if it went against me.

    That's a lovely hit from Eriksen. (The bastard).

    You could argue they work perfectly fine, and it's the BBC that's broken...

    A critical take on the Nintendo Switch

    It's the Xbox that's the wrong way round.

    A critical take on the Nintendo Switch

    The Switch is portable. Now, it's not especially convient to take and play somewhere like you would a DS or Vita, but I know I can go and visit my parents over Christmas, bring the Switch and expect to be able to play it a lot more readily than I can a PS4. I know I can play it in the living room while my partner watches something on the television, or disappear off to another room and play it there. I know that I can take it round to a friend's house for some multiplayer fun there without needing to commandeer a screen when I arrive. The Switch isn't a Vita or a DS. That is true. But it's simply not true to say it isn't portable just because it's a little bigger. Fuck, I had a 14" telly that was portable and you wouldn't be sticking that in your coat pocket to use on the tube either.

    The Last of Us Part 2

    In most cases, true advanced AI isn't as useful for gameplay as superficially believable AI that can still be kept under control and produce the kind of atmosphere and gameplay required. A single human Joel up against three human-controlled opponents in the environments The Last of Us uses would be far more frequently beat down. You want the kind of artificially dumb systems where the player can get the jump on the enemies or recover mistakes, and where the enemies can be relied upon to avoid a situation becoming unexpectedly difficult due to an unforeseen circumstance. Even Alien Isolation restrains its beast's intelligence at points and cheats in others to maintain the right level of fear. In game AI, it's the end result that matters most.

    I see Guerrero's been having nightmares on Westfalenstraße. Little topical reference for you, there.

    Oatley's freelance, I think. Chasing that sweet money, like the Paul Hollywood of football.

    Oatley is with ITV this tournament, as it happens.

    That Ronaldo fella doesn't hang about, does he?
  15. Having had the SNES Mini since launch, I had forgotten about the flaws of this one. Ours arrived yesterday and immediately I noted the short lead on the controller and the fact you only get one. Part of me wondered if perhaps Nintendo would have addressed the complaints about lead length at least, but I guess not. Thankfully, the SNES controllers work just fine, which solves both issues in one fell swoop.
