    Rllmuk Fantasy Premier League 2018/19

    Same. That's twice now I've benched an injury doubt player fearing an 85th minute substitute cameo only for them to not only start but bloody score. Lesson well and truly learned!
  2. The closer sports games get to simulating the real thing, the worse they get. This is why ISS98 plays better than modern FIFA/Pro Evo, and Mario Tennis (N64) is the best tennis game.
  3. My top 10 would look something like: 1. Deus Ex 2. Super Mario World 3. Far Cry 2 4. Grand Theft Auto III 5. Metroid Prime 6. Ico 7. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening 8. F-Zero X 9. Jet Set Radio 10. Metal Gear Solid 2 On personal impact, not necessarily how they hold up today.

    Nintendo Direct - 13th September (11 PM BST, 12 AM CEST)

    It's also worth saying that we've not had an F-Zero game that supports online play, which for me makes it a very different proposition. Just imagine the carnage of 30 player races - it's easy to imagine a hugely passionate online community springing up around the game that enabled it through word of mouth to reach a much bigger audience than X or GX.

    Solidarity. Mkhi coming on in the 89th minute cost me Ings coming off my bench.

    Game Boy & GB Advance Appreciation Thread

    After getting a new backlit GBA from Das, I went up in the loft at my parents today and got all my old Game Boy games out of storage. Some brilliant memories with these. I'd like to expand the GBA collection now and play a lot of games I missed. Any recommendations on where to find legit games? Too many fakes around on eBay.

    Ugh, heard that Ings was a doubt to start today so changed my team yesterday to put Wan-Bissaka in fearing Ings would only get a run out in the second half.

    N64 Appreciation Thread

    You're right in hindsight, but it didn't stop me loving it at the time and obsessing over it to the point of beating all of the staff ghosts.

    Shocking week. 22 points with Robertson, Salah and Firmino still to play. I've panicked and played my wildcard to get rid of Jota, King and Kenedy before their likely price drops.

    Neves at 5.0 is suddenly looking like a much better pick than Jota at 6.5. Jiminez at 5.5 is also looking like a good option for a budget forward. Tempted to switch King and bank £1m. Maybe a little too kneejerk though...

    Had Richarlison in my team all week and then opted for Siggurdson instead yesterday.

    I'm in - Toddy FC. Salah's price has really made it difficult this year assuming you're one of the 55% of people with him in your team. In the end I've decided to sacrifice premium forwards and gone for mid-priced midfielders to allow me to have a decent defence. Will be playing 4-4-2.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)

    As others have said, this was a series of great action scenes looking for a script. I haven't seen Rogue Nation which can't have helped me, but the plot seemed all over the place and there was no real character drama to speak of. Cavill could have been an interesting foil to Cruise as the amoral agent for whom the ends justify any means, but they didn't take it anywhere interesting. Still an enjoyable film though. I found the ending unintentionally hilarious and got told off for making my partner laugh.

    Nintendo Switch

    I'm addicted to N++ at the moment - ended up playing it for 3 hours last night having only intended to play a couple of levels. Another perfect fit for the Switch.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Hate to say it but Southgate got it wrong second half. Croatia changed, we didn't respond. When they started dominating, we needed to shore up those wide areas or at least give them something different to worry about, maybe 4-5-1 with Sterling up top. He'd have been slaughtered for it taking Kane off if it went wrong so I can understand the hesitance, but the reality is we were on the backfoot from 35 mins onwards. It was always my worry that we had no Plan B and tonight showed that. We'd have been battered by France but it still pains me to see us lose a semi final that was absolutely there to be won.
