    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    While I hope they'll manage to surprise me all over again, I would be entirely happy with either DLC or a sequel just further exploring the existing mechanics, and maybe a greater level of difficulty.

    Daredevil - TV Series

    Couple of episodes from the end and this has been great - probably the strongest season and definitely a welcome return to form after the shitty Hand episodes of season 2. (The other half, with the Punisher, made it bearable at least.) I find it strange that they didn't provide a recap covering the events in the Defenders, given it wasn't that popular and apparently most viewers didn't make it to the end of the series. Or did I just fail to play it? I was completely confused about the whole collapsing building thing, and only last night got around to googling to find out what I was missing.

    Astro Bot - PSVR - Game of the year 2018.

    Finished up the final boss and grabbed the platinum earlier (almost immediately, as I'd been doing the challenges steadily as I went through the game). Just a sheer joy from beginning to end. I think that when a game has you then the love, enthusiasm, and humour with which it has been crafted is pretty clear. The bosses were probably the best I've encountered, certainly in terms of a consistently brilliant set, and the continuous flow of new and evolving ideas is pretty much unmatched too. Can't wait to see what they do next.

    ? Wickham setup their third goal with a lovely lay-off

    Lovren and Mignolet jointly announce their retirement?

    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    I find it extraordinary that Ed Boon has now spent the better part of a quarter of a century working on Mortal Kombat. I mean, this looks great and all, but it's been a pretty gentle evolution over that time. I bet he secretly despises it.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    You're right; my earlier search obviously wasn't thorough enough. They were down that low in 2011 but Gary Speed was in charge for that first jump.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    Wales were 100-and-something in the world rankings when Coleman took over. I don't think that dragging them to the Euros semi-finals and a ranking of eighth was really any less of a challenge than making Sunderland competitive - or even just not relegated! - in the Championship. Success in football owes so much to attitude, momentum and sheer luck that I can see why a motivated, confident manager would take that on. The only real surprising part to me is that he hadn't received any better offers already.

    Netflix - Releases & Recommendations

    I was sceptical about this series, already knowing the ending and not being particularly interested in spending eight episodes with a team that perennially struggled in the PL and rarely played any football worth watching, particularly in the latter years as investment dried up. However, halfway through so far, it is indeed absorbing viewing. The makers seem to have been granted almost unfettered access, despite what the club was going through, and have taken full advantage. I think the breadth of viewpoints and the blend of those with game footage, training, glimpses into the impacts upon the locals, and so on is really well judged, and I'm particularly glad that they haven't chosen the overly trodden route of focusing on one or two 'characters' to synthesise a narrative, and instead have simply told the real story. And in fact, I think that going in with at least a rough idea of how events unfolded only enhances it, if anything. Not sure a spoiler is necessary, but - I realise it's on Amazon instead, but how does the Man City documentary compare?

    Football Thread 2018/19

    While DDG bailing them out was a hallmark of the recent vintage of Man Utd, I thought today's performance, and everything since Mourinho slunk off, was night and day. A positive, attacking approach carried out by players no longer united only in their evident hatred of the manager. Sure, they retreated in the second half and required goalkeeping heroics to preserve the lead but that looked like United today, rather than an asset-stripped misery train. Obviously I have no interest in them starting to, say, actually win the PL again, but it's nice not to have to swallow handfuls of antidepressants in order to make it through their games.

    That would suggest that he's capable of enjoying something, of which I see little evidence.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    Well, that's the best 1-0 I've watched in a while. Manchester United and entertainment no longer quite such strangers to one another, it seems. I hope that Mourinho is sitting somewhere feeling rather ashamed right now, though I imagine he's still too busy scribbling away on his list of everyone whose fault it is.

    Certainly don't think they're going to be spending a huge amount of time deliberating over MOTM...

    Just me or has Lukaku gone up a shirt size or two?

    Not sure what's more bizarre - the alleged antics or that apparently that they only discovered the concept of passwords somewhere around 2015.
