  1. Yeah, I miss having challenges. Surely not difficult to implement so I guess they've left them out for artistic reasons.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    Yes, Mantis Claw and Moth Wing are what you need to access a lot of areas. I got them both around the same time.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    Irish Alan's teeth, the dandruff on his lapels, the body language. Fantastic. I also thought Monty Don's acting was top notch.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Losers is terrific. One of those speculative punts one evening but I ended up watching four in a row. The episode about Curling is my favourite - a guy who felt so deflated by a loss that he obsessively went about changing his approach to the tactics of the sport, and in doing so ushered in a rule change. Fascinating. The only odd thing about it is the opening credits which are at odds with the subject matter. I feel like I'm about to watch an episode of Jazz Club with John Thompson. Nice.

    Hollow Knight - Soulsvania platformer

    I think this is the early bit I got stuck at for a while too. Sounds like you need to get to the Mantis Village via Fungal Wastes. If I remember rightly there's a kind of pogo jump move you need to do on the mushrooms which is not taught, you just have to experiment. So when you're about to land on the mushroom you swing your nail downwards and it pogos you upwards. This extra momentum will allow you to reach a new area (and a very important ability). All the other options you mention are later on in the game, though grinding for the lamp is viable. It's definitely worth getting to the Mantis Village as Hollow Knight really opens up soon afterwards.

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    Astro Bot is the only game i've ever platinumed. I expect you will need to look around (ie crane your neck) for some of those last trophies. Surely there's no shame in looking them up though? Some will also involve the devices you pick up. Essentially you could play it for another 20 hours and still not find them all.

    Dark Souls Remastered

    Definitely go PS4; Blight Town is chuggy on PS3 plus like everyone says, you can summon on PS4 and actually find people. And it's not much at CEX these days. It's also due a sweet sale price soon on PS Store.
  9. This is essentially me. I actually find getting kills more rewarding than getting to the last two squads or even winning. Last night I dropped with only one team mate but he/she quit leaving me on my tod. I skulked around the map tooling up and watching other squads wiping each other out, dealing out the odd bit of damage here and there in the confusion. So I'm in the last two but didn't stand a chance against the last three players who hunted me down like a pig. Felt good to survive so long but getting a kill is where my adrenaline rush is.

    Fighting with my Family

    This is a gem. Surprisingly affecting and gritty in places. The heart of the movie is her relationship with her brother and I was pleased Zak features in it almost as much as Paige. His story would usually be brushed aside in these kind of aspirational movies but the focus on his battle outside the ring was handled beautifully. I was expecting it to be smaltzsy but there's so much heart and familial pain in this to raise it above predictable shite like Creed 2 that it's a must watch for any sport fans. And it had Cersei from Game of Thrones in it, looking almost unrecognizable. Bonus.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Breakdance 2: Electric Boogaloo. I liked the first one mind.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    In recent memory The Girl on the Train was proper tripe. Managed to be boring and confused.

    After Life - Ricky Gervais

    Watched the last episode tonight and I thought the whole thing was a joy. The writing was tight and the episodes went past in a flash. I really enjoyed all the support performances too. I personally thought Philomena Cunk (Diane Morgan) was great and delivered a quietly perfect performance - good to see her playing against type. Setting this at a local newspaper was a masterstroke and all the parochial news stories were warmly charming and provided a sort of ordinary grounding which undercut some of the darker material. I didn't think Gervais was capable of these kind of heights after a few duff projects. I laughed a lot and had a tear in my eye a lot. Superb.

    Stand up comedy

    Frankie Boyle. Not everyone's cup of tea though. Prepare for shots of people in the audience laughing and then looking disgusted.
