    If you ever get a bit down that GB isn't what it was, Ben is boring or they talk about wrestling too much... Waypoint recently did like six 2-3 hour podcasts about 90s BBC Jane Austen adaptations. What the fuck is that all about? I have no idea who that site is for.

    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    Yes, you can theoretically play for 3000+ hours to unlock the same stuff. This is just for skins btw, not any of the other stuff. Buying games like this endorses the model even if you don't actually buy any of the stuff yourself - you are saying it's OK to break the game design to milk whales, and to charge £40-50 for a game with free to play paywall systems. It's terribly destructive to the art form and there are too many people who blindly accept it, so the publishers know they can get away with.

    The microtransaction stuff has completely killed my interest in this game, shame, I was really wanting to play it but the despicable publisher tactics cannot be supported. Someone worked out it costs £6k to unlock everything. Go fuck yourself!

    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    It'll seems to have zero hype to me but I saw some bloke on twitter saying orders are very high.

    I had MK1 on Master System. No Kano, only two stages and two buttons. It was a good version.

    Gaming mondegreens/eggcorns (misheard audio)

    Persona songs often have that problem, you can tell the singer is just doing it phonetically with no ear for English pronunciation, while at the same time the lyrics have a lot of weird and awkward phrasing to fit the rhythm. Makes it very easy to mishear. That said, I have never heard that line sound like that in that song. (That game can't even pronounce the name Ann).

    That's as bad as Alex Rae on radio clyde the other night - it's a gold star in Neil Lennon's feather!

    I'm a fan of the away goals rule just because it's an extra bit of drama sometimes, like the other night, especially om when you have close scorelines where extra time can't apply because of it. That game might have been very different if the prospect of extra time and penalties awaited all the way through. Also, extra time and penalties is an advantage to the team playing the second leg at home.

    This is Hip-Hop.

    Todd in the Shadows is a very good youtube music guy. One of his series goes in depth on the careers of famous one hit wonders (from an American perspective of course, some of the 'one hit wonders' we're or still are very popular acts in the UK) This is a fun video about House of Pain - Jump Around. The appalling stuff Everlast put out before that song, fuck me I don't think I have ever been at party, wedding reception or an even vaguely rock-themed nightclub which hasn't played that song at some point during the night. When that opening fanfare hits everyone mobs the dancefloor! I wonder if it might be the most deeply-embedded into pop culture hip hop song ever? DJ Muggs was the genius on that song clearly, their other stuff is kind of the same song with worse production and crap beats

    Ah, yeah that's right. Again on Aguirre, Kinski also nearly killed a couple of extras, once by being beating some guy up with a sword in a fight scene and once getting drunk and shooting a gun into their tents in rage at them playing cards. Absolute psychopath.

    Ah, Werner Herzog has seen some shit on his films, Klaus Kinski was an absolute nutjob. Herzog planned to get a local tribe to murder him on the set of one of them, and later pulled a gun on him. I think it was either that or Aguirre. My Best Fiend is well worth a watch.

    The people responsible for appointing McLeish need sacked too. As blatant a case of jobs for the boys as you will see. As for the new manager, I'd consider John Collins.
  14. I don't think they're even really testing anything, they will have already decided the cheapo model next time round will be drive-less. They're quietly establishing the precedent so there's no big outcry like last time. The extremely strong rumours are/were that at launch they'll have a peasant model which is less powerful and with no discs, and a next gen 'X' equivalent. This totally fits that.

    EU tariffs on game consoles

    This would obviously only affect the xbox. Even then, it isn't made in the USA as far I know it wouldn't apply either. Bit of nothing. Edit: I suppose Stadia, potentially, but again, there is zero chance that wi will be manufactured in the US.
