  1. Bloody hell that's a bit of a strike from Zaha.
  2. Fuck me, can we get this ridiculous thread title changed back please.
  3. It's all bloody YEET! this and YEET! that over here, I hate it. youtube's far more influential than any swears they might pick up in gta.
  4. My 11 yr old definitely plays more than I think he should, especially at the moment while we're all at home and myself and my wife are both trying to continue working full-time, but I do keep an eye on him and make sure it's not affecting his wellbeing. The only really hard rule we have is that he's not allowed any gaming at all before midday, as this really does seem to affect him more than anything else, and can make him lethargic and affect his attitude for the rest of the day, whereas if he's done something more educational/physical in the morning and then goes on in the afternoon . the lethargy he shows after a long session (3-4hrs) in particular is a killer for doing anything productive for the rest of the day. We've always tried to keep it to age-appropriate games for him as he's grown up, but I have let him play some more adult stuff like Just Cause 3 and GTA5 under my supervision, as the actual driving/flying mechanics in these games are brilliant fun and generally fine for him to play around with (though I was slightly concerned over the glee he took mowing down a number of pedestrians one time in GTA...). One of the main issues with GTA is the massive amount of swearing in it, he knows a fair few swear words through his friends and school now anyway, but we discuss them and talk about not using them, and he is generally very good with his language. With the live online games like Overwatch and Fortnite it is harder to set a hard limit that means he would have to break off halfway through a game, and I understand this a lot better than his mum, who is more likely to march in and switch it off from the wall, but I have recently found quite an effective tactic to get him to mentally prepare for finishing his session, which is to send him a quick message through the Xbox app giving him a 5/10min warning, so it actually pops up on screen as he's playing, and he does seem to accept that more readily than us shouting into the room where he's playing.
  5. Watching this video reminded me just how many times we've come back to win from losing positions this season, really highlights the mentality of the whole squad.
  6. Cheers boys. Been a long time coming.
  7. Am going to try and get back into this with a couple of friends this weekend, just looking to roam the plains and do some co-op PvE stuff, without being hassled by anyone else. Is this actually possible? looking online it doesn't seem you can create private sessions like you could in GTA. We'll all be pretty much starting out from scratch, in fact I don't think I'd even got to a point where I could pick up a horse last time I played online, so will have pitiful access to weapons and resources, so I'd rather not have it descend into a griefing sh1tfest if we can help it.
  8. Strangely, the *only* time my launch model One really winds itself up is when I load up an X360 digital BC game.
  9. Nice to see Arsenal finally starting to play a bit, just 97min into the game.
  10. --------- Dead Space is about as much as I can handle, incredibly tense and you feel like you can never relax as all of your equipment/menus are dealt with in real time so you're constantly on guard. You can't hide anywhere and every corridor you think you might be able to force the necros into a bottleneck down has a bloody vent at the end, so there's nowhere you really feel like you can get your back against safely.
  11. Bloody hell there's a game I've not thought about for 20 years!
  12. Forces TV were showing all episodes of Buck Rogers a few months ago so I recorded them all and have been dipping into them every now and again. They used to be essential family viewing back in the mid-80s but watching them back now they are almost universally terrible, the storylines, the acting, the sets, hilariously bad, I think I'm mainly just carrying on watching becasue of Wilma's jumpsuit. Also like to watch the old British 70s shows they always have on during the day on ITV4, mainly Minder, The Sweeny and the Professionals, mainly to just look at how... grimy the 70s were. The haircuts, the clothes, the cars, it's all fascinatingly awful.
  13. Yeah I had no idea about that either! The 82 Spain ball for me, classic simple design, none of the busyness of the 86-onwards versions. Though my memories linked to it are from a good few years later, think I must've been 9-10 so would've been closer to the actual Mexico 86 cup, it's definitely the 82 ball I remember. As it should be!
  14. Aaand we may as well quote it to get it on the new page.
  15. The Tango's been my favourite ball forever.
