    Grand Designs

    She seemed an awful woman - the whole place and idea was hers in the first place, but she seemed the spoilt brat sort that hasn’t been told ‘no’ enough in her life. watching Grand Designs makes me very judgmental.

    Just Cause 4. - December 4th

    Just cause 2 is one of my fave games of all time - I felt 3 was aimed at youtube idiots who needed to put up 4h of content a day of them tethering things together for the top bantz. I had over 100h in 2 but never finished 3. Got an eye on this as hoping it can rediscover the magic, and not be a peurile physics sandbox aimed at twats fake laughing when the attach balloons to a nun and launch her into a jet plane.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Did the Utd laundry dept leave some new red socks in with the white away shirts in the last wash ?

    Football Thread 2018/19

    never thought Lloris was amazing but he'd do a better job after a night out than Vorm is today.

    Your "Eureka" moments.

    not so much a single dish eureka moment but about a year ago I decided I wanted all the convenience of a microwave ready meal but homemade without any compromise (its the Food Prepping thread). almost hitting the year mark and not showing the slightest sign of letting up - learnt a lot and the constraints I place on what gets made (and how it gets made) is all part of the enjoyment. I love buying bags of meat and veg and base ingredients and turning it into a nice picture of identical looking meals.

    Animal Crossing Switch | Coming 2019

    I adored this on the Wii, one of my most played games of all time with an obsessive amount of hours put into it trying to fill out the museum, complete sets of furniture, have an impressive array of jiggly geode things and the most marvellous assortment of rare hybrid flowers on my doorstep. I loved every second of doing this but the game is a harsh mistress, your flowers die if not tended to constantly and that perfect town status needs constant weed vigilance I loved it all so much but just not sure I can commit to the same thing again, and my OCD ways mean that if I got it I would be committed ! I need to see what the 'hook' is this time, as for my own sanity I probably need to avoid if its 'just' more of the same. If it is more of the same anybody who hasn't played before should get it without hesitation, its marvellous, just in many ways the harshest most demanding game you'll ever play.
  8. all of this so much, plus add in weird looking cutscenes with everybody made out of wax - which get declared to be masterpieces of animation and storytelling - I just can't fathom the critical and gamer acclaim for these clunky badly playing games.

    FIFA 19

    always need to explain your history on footy games, I was an ISS and PES player on PS1&2, then defected to FIFA for years and recently have been torn between both only having played the demos for a few games FIFA feels far better than PES to my tastes this year, PES felt sluggish and heavy whereas FIFA feels very snappy and precise.

    Tom Waits Appreciation

    i actually prefer the music to the vocals on that version at risk of derailing this old thread further I like this version which somebody put together from the bits of it in the Money Heist (netflix)
  11. I can't understand how people like the PS4 dual shock joypad - I think its horrendous, loose imprecise sticks, horrible shoulder buttons and feels too wide, oh and its time between recharges is crap too.
  12. I kept a note of my list from last time it was a thread in here - just looking at it again its made me realise there is a difference between the best game you've played and your favourite (at least in my mind). I still believe that Zelda BotW is the best game I've ever played, its a towering achievement of design and doing something new. But I haven't finished it and not touched in months. Then again I've had Clash Royale on my phone and played it every day for 2.5 years (and I mean EVERY day). Likewise I've put hours back into Rocket League on Switch but didn't even have in my top 20 (needs to be corrected). I think my top 5 favourite games and top 5 best games I've ever played would be different.

    Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    UFC is killing itself on several fronts, and its not solely their fault. Fighters trying to fight outside their natural weights boiling themselves down to near death, a drug problem that would make 1980s cycling and athletics proud and then the numerous problems with the UFC themselves in terms of promotion, fighter pay, belt/title management and match making and then on top of that the problem with UK rights going off satellite (it would seem, they not got a channel yet) The Reebok deal was the start of the decline but the big takeover and McGregor vs Mayweather were really the tipping point I think - its all become a circus since then. edit story on UK rights seems to have moved on a little, Eleven sports haven't 'won' them - BT have a deal til Dec and have said they won't pay the first figure quoted by UFC to renew automatically - Eleven and Sky Sports are bidding with a chance the package may be split (say numbered big event on one channel and Eleven getting Fight Nights)

    Food Prepping

    Second day of stew week (there's not a third coming, I'm out of freezer space). Looking around for something lamb based and didn't just want a straight Irish stew, found a Genaro Contaldo Italian variant which looked interesting and a bit different - he seems to have a few variants of the same thing on youtube & the web with slightly different versions, most are similar though with a nice white wine and stock base being added to the lamb, new potatoes and assorted veg (with a good amount of fresh time and a chilli to pep it up). Side is roasted swede & carrot scraped out of the skins and blitzed with a hand blender with a pinch of nutmeg, seasoning, and a blob of butter (cos everything is better with butter on) Tastes pretty good fresh out the pan - need to tweak my technique a little next time to get a bit more brown on the meat, but other than that its promising.

    Food Prepping

    Winter is coming No way this can't be anything but comforting - classic beef stew with mash, mustard dumplings and buttered leeks & peas. Followed this stew recipe exactly apart from my usual thing of looking at the meat content and thinking it was incredibly mean, I used 1.2kg but kept everything else the same. The baby carrots held up to the 3h cook time but the whole shallots dissolved into the gravy (which does taste delicious). Very simple mustard dumplings (250g self raising flour, 150g suet, 2 tbls wholegrain mustard and 4-5 tbls of water - dumplings don't need lots of water with suet you just have to work them a bit with your hands to form the dough) - chuck them on top with about half an hour to go and either leave covered or take lid off after a bit to crisp up the tops. http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/lifestyle/fooddrink/recipes/11700543.Recipe__Ultimate_beef_and_ale_stew/
