    Indeed, it's about time, really. Probably sucks for Vancouver as I imagine they will lose a few fans.

    Another classic track from Skitchin' - randomly going around my head this morning.

  6. It’s interesting to hear people say that they avoid multiplayer games due to time constraints - I pretty much do the opposite. To caveat, I’m largely talking about ‘arena’-style games, where there is a clear beginning and end to the match. I feel that this ‘timeboxing’ allows me to jump in, have a fairly clear idea of how long I’ll be playing for, and jump out without having to get to a good stopping point or whatever. I can pick different games depending on length (eg, a Rocket League game takes around 5 minutes, whereas a game of Heroes if the Storm will probably be more like 20) and feel pretty satisfied about having ‘accomplished’ something within that time. Obviously this doesn’t lend itself too well to epics with long stories and such, but from primarily enjoying more skill-based/competitive experiences in games, it works for me. I doubt I would be gaming at all these days were it not for those of that ilk (aside from retro stuff, perhaps).

    Golf Games

    I always enjoyed some PGA European Tour on the Mega Drive back in the day, some great titles in that series. As far as others to try, the Mario golf games were decent (Game Boy, N64). The Major Title games are also good, and by Irem, no less. Also, Ninja Golf, of course.
  9. Enjoyed By Fair Means or Foul on the Beeb back in the day - a somewhat perplexing control system initially but quite in-depth once you got the hang of it. And onto perhaps one of the worst games ever - All-In Boxing for the Archimedes. Awful controls, uninspiring graphics and absolutely devoid of anything resembling the excitement of boxing:

    What are you playing?

    Played War Chest at my local cafe today, and it headed right up my Christmas list as a result. Great strategic game, with some elements of deck building (using tokens instead of cards) and a Duke-esque element of luck with the bag drawing aspect. It's a little on the pricier side but the components are of high quality - imagine Splendor chips but about twice the weight. It's another one of those games that sounds a lot more complicated on paper when you're going through the rules - when it clicks, it's actually quite a fast-paced game. Really looking forward to getting it into my library!

    Prodigy

    Totally thought this was coming out next year, so was a nice surprise to see it pop up on Spotify this morning. Decided to give it the once-over on my drive in. It has all the usual components: crushing beats, huge bags of attitude, whizzy instruments and samples and pitch-shifted voices talking various degrees of gibberish. It’s a Prodigy album. But wow, I can’t remember the last time I had such a consistent buzz across the entirety of the first listen of an album. Probably my favorite part (which I assume only served to amplify the buzz) is the hints to stuff from the back catalogue - nod to Their Law there, hat-tip to One Love there, oh and that sounds a bit like the Charly cat. I would even go so far as to say I heard a whisper to What Evil Lurks in there. They seem to have managed to strip away some of the fluff that was creeping in and successfully tapped back into their roots. I had turned into the ‘I can’t believe you’ve done this’ guy by the time I arrived at work - exclaiming it repeatedly out loud as I entered the building. Consider my face melted, indeed.
