  1. Winter Olympics 2018

    Because it was there under News, Sport and Most Watched... And yes, there were two other GB competitors in that event too.
  2. Dara O'Briain's Go 8-bit

    While the episodes have been fun, there have been some serious issues with the games in these first two episodes. "Let's play Battlefield One on an open server, random people will just turn up and interfere" "Let's watch match highlights from Football Manager and make fun of the menu options chosen" Even the Total War battle with Gregg Wallace was badly edited and confusing, where Time Commanders managed to make the same thing compelling.
  3. Rugby thread (6 Nations, Heineken Cup etc)

    Nope, the video in Guscott's column shows Steff Evans got a fingertip to the ball. Knock-on.
  4. A movie watchers blog

    Early Man (PG, 2017) A Stone Age tribe live an idyllic life in their valley hunting rabbits - until a neighbouring tribe who have discovered bronze invade and throw them out. And so Doug, his pet pig Hognog and Goona from the rival tribe must train a football team to beat the champions Real Bronzio. Very funny against the odds sporting movie, only this time in plasticine. With some gags that will go over kid's heads. 4/5
  5. A movie watchers blog

    When We First Met (Netflix original) Noah (Adam Devine) falls in love with Avery at a Halloween party, but the next day she meets Ethan and falls in love with him. Three years later at their engagement party, a drunk Noah confesses he loves Avery to her cynical friend Carrie - and a magic photo booth sends him back in time for a second chance. And a third. Groundhog Day meets About Time, with a nice twist at the end. Fairly standard rom-com. 3/5
  6. Mine's arrived, hoping I get time to do an unboxing
  7. Rugby thread (6 Nations, Heineken Cup etc)

    Big win for England Ladies, 52-0 over Wales. And the U20s won last night too, so both those teams have two wins from two.
  8. Finally got round to reading this... It's amazing. Plenty of in-depth history, superb photos and amazing artwork (including a superb collection of character designs from behind the scenes). There is a little bit of repetition, but it's both an amazing visual reference work and packed with interesting facts. http://www.bitmapbooks.co.uk
  9. Sad news, would have loved to interview him about his games...
  10. Inside No.9

    Very good end to the series.
  11. Inside No.9

    I spotted the twist coming but it did not spoil my enjoyment of it.
  12. The Wii Appreciation Thread

    I enjoyed Klonoa, but the American voices got on my nerves. Felt much better when I switched the audio to Japanese. I really liked Dead Space Extraction too, one or two clunky character models aside it generated a lot of atmosphere and told an interesting story. I know there are a lot of games I still need to pick up for the Wii (and Wii U), and several in my up played pile too. Notably Zelda Twilight Princess...
  13. Seems clear he was cheating. But was he the only one?
  14. Cricket Thread

    It's partly down to the protracted negotiations over contracts with the Australian Cricket Board, meant a few of their top ODI players weren't available.
  15. EFL Championship 2017/18 - All Welcome!

    12 points clear for Wolves. But more importantly goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is STAYING at Ipswich for three more years, after speculation linking him with Crystal Palace. Hilariously, Mick McCarthy said in an interview David McGoldrick's agent has been "spoofing", trying to get a deal by spreading rumours there is interest in the striker.
