    What are you playing?

    I played Settlers of Catan last night. Settlers of Catan! Regular ordinary Catan too, not even Seafarers. It was an odd experience. With our group collectively owning a considerable library of hobbyist board games, we've had little desire to play Catan these past few years. But it was the game that first got us playing together, sparking an interest in many of us and laying the foundations for a group activity that has become the centre of our social calendars these days, so I've held on to my copy. Rolling those dice, cursing at how 5 was coming up three times more frequently than 6, 7, or 8. Sitting on a stockpile of stone and having it all taken from you by a bastard with the Monopoly card. Getting penned in by two others each competing for Longest Road. Asking every single round for just one fucking wheat. It was almost fun. I think I've only kept a space for Catan on my shelves because of nostalgia. Compared to the likes of Cluedo and Risk it's a blast, but I own dozens of other games I'd rather play.

    Flight of the Conchords Appreciation Thread

    We saw them back in June. Really enjoyed the show, a mix of old and new stuff. The song about hosting a party made me giggle. Mad to think it's been nearly a decade since they were on TV.

    Star Trek Discovery

    Bearded Spock? But we've done the mirror universe already!
  5. I'm half way through series 3 right now and it is SO GOOD. Every episode has been solid gold, with some great cliffhangers. It is so difficult not to binge the lot in one go.
  6. I like Egerton, I think he'll be great in this role.

    Anime

    Nothing really comes close to being as good as Beebop, but Samurai Champloo is often touted as a worthy watch, and is from the same director. Trigun is a bit old now but was one of my favourite shows when I was getting into anime about 15 years ago. It starts off as this weird aloof comedy of sorts but gets a bit more serious as it goes on. I'm always recommending Death Note. It drags a little in the second half, but the conflict between the main characters remains one of the most interesting battle of wits in the medium. Rurouni Kenshin is something of a classic, the story of a famed swordsman who tries and fails to avoid conflict after experiencing the horrors of war. I've been thinking of rewatching it.
  9. I've been glancing through the digital edition. It's a top-quality production, like everything Bitmap Books do. Interesting to read about some of the titles I've not heard of, and it's great seeing all these scenes from games I remember. A nice nostalgia trip.

    Anime

    Hisone and Masotan is on Netflix now. I've watched a couple of episodes and it's pretty good. One of those workplace dramas you get a lot of, only the gimmick this time is the main character works for the Air Self Defence Force, and pilots a dragon.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy | 2019

    I've only played the first. I don't have a good reason why I've not played the others, as I thought it was excellent.

    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy | 2019

    I've been hankering for this for ages. Goodness knows why it's taken Capcom so long to get this properly announced.

    Nintendo Switch

    Ah, no, sorry. If you attempt to access an online-sub feature using a Switch profile that isn't linked to a Nintendo account, you'll be prompted to link it to a Nintendo account in order to go online (at which point it will then tell you to get a sub).
