  1. Surprised that anyone was surprised about where Arya had gone to, looking all determined. She'd literally just been told to go kill someone with "Blue Eyes".
  2. She used one of her signature moves, shown in her training scene with Brienne. The NK had her knife arm in one hand, and her throat in the other. What a simpleton he must be not to realise that she was actually the best fighting machine in Westeros, with a signature move whereby she can transfer her weapon between hands! While being choked! I thought it was the perfect culmination of everything we've seen Arya learning throughout her arc.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Thanks to all who replied with their feedback on the game. I’m going to tuck in over the Easter break I think.

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I've held off on this because I haven't had any time for gaming lately, and because the setting isn't one I'm naturally drawn to. However - Bloodborne is one of my favourite games ever, and it seems wrong not to be playing this alongside you guys. What's the general consensus for where this sits in the Pantheon? New best one ever? Jury still out?

    No Man's Sky - VR Mode Announced

    I'm all over this, but I do worry about my vanilla PS4 coping. Might finally be time to upgrade.

    Fleabag - BBC3 Comedy

    I love this so much. Re-watched the first series, and I would do so a third, or fourth time. I love how it subverts comedy tropes. Any other comedy would have built up the tension over smashing the award, but Fleabag just drops it the second it’s out of the case. Of course she does!

    The most beautiful song you ever heard

    Most beautiful song I've heard in a while: Live version perhaps even better:

    Doctor Who

    Surprised you say that about the pacing. One of the complaints I heard (on The Incomparable podcast) was that they slowed the pace down for the scene between Ryan and his Dad in the cafe. Personally it didn’t feel rushed at all, and I enjoyed the way they actually took time to explore these character moments. There was also plenty of screen time for Dalek Lyn to establish itself as a memorable baddie.

    Doctor Who

    Only just watched the NYD episode, but I thought it was an absolute belter. Loved how scary the Dalek was, especially while possessing Lyn, which really reminded me of classic Dr Who (Planet of the Spiders springs to mind). And I thought the relationships stuff was wonderfully handled, especially the scene with Graham and the boxes of toys kept by Grace for her son. I've also been catching up with the back half of Capaldi's season, which I skipped at the time as I was thoroughly sick of Clara and the show in general just wasn't doing much for me (despite liking Capaldi). I have to say, I couldn't be happier that Chibnall is in charge now. I think anyone unhappy with the current season would do well to re-watch tripe like 'In The Forest of the Night', and the total shit-show that is 'Dark Water/Death in Heaven' before judging the current show too harshly. I hope Chibnall has as decent a crack at the Cybermen as he did the Daleks, as they really have been treated badly as villains by both Moffat and RTD. I mean, the Brigadier as a re-animated corpse Cyberman FFS...

    Bad luck!

    Doctor Who

    'Motivations' - Ha! I love that. No, no, there can't possibly be any merit in this, you must have motivations for liking it. I just think it's been fab. Great, succinct story-telling, a welcome lack of the half-arsed story "arcs" which were really no such thing, some very small stakes (always hated it when the entire universe was at stake each week), and most importantly of all some extremely moving and well wrought interactions between the supporting cast, which really does comprise the best Tardis crew ever. It stumbled once, and once only IMO, otherwise I've enjoyed every minute. And enjoyment is actually my only motivation, thank you very much.

    Fucking hell. You live on planet wrong. This has been the best series of New Who in some years.

    No Man's Sky - VR Mode Announced

    Further improvements: Sentinel behaviour is much more engaging now. You now have Dog Sentinels patrolling outside Secure Installations, just in free roam mode, and Walkers arrive when you destroy depots. Sentinel ships will also warp in and attack pirates now, f you get picked on. That was nice to see. There seem to be much more aggressive predators now. I got attacked by packs of wolf like creatures on a lush blue planet yesterday, and it was actually fairly challenging to survive. Oh, and there were dinosaur bones to dig up on that planet! I found a rare one which netted me about half a million credits. The terrain generation and colours are much nicer now, especially around and under water. I'll have a ton of screenshots to post soon, if anyone still cares!

    No Man's Sky - VR Mode Announced

    The latest 2 updates are such an improvement. The underwater topography is so much better - more atmospheric, and less barren. I found all sorts of unusual things in a lake last night, including Living Pearls in an Armoured Clam, a Rock that vented hot steam at me, and a much better variety of fish. There are also some nice little touches which I think are new, such as the way the guys selling the vehicle and ship upgrades at space stations have a garage/hanger behind them. I've completely dropped RDR2 to play this for hours last night, so it's definitely got its hooks back in me.
