    Rare/collectable Spectrum Games

    I had Heroes of The Lance on the Speecy! It was shit. It was not helped by me buying it on holiday, spending a week reading the manual, getting very excited…and then actually playing it. (my choices were not great - as exhibit B, I give you the time where I put Terminator 2 on my Christmas list. And got it. Now that was a Christmas afternoon of disappointment)

    Bandersnatch

    Nobody has ever confirmed it, but I feel that Frankie Goes To Hollywood (also Denton Designs) was probably the closest to what Bandersnatch would have been on the Speccy. GFTG has the graphics routines, but Frankie has most of what was being hyped about the Megagames. (I'm 99% a real person)

    …the name of the game

    Emuparadise

    Before 1976, when the US adopted the Berne Convention, US copyright (from 1909) was based around a period of 28 years with a renewal term of a further 28 years if requested. Also, there were a few oddities like actually having to explicitly claim copyright - Charade, an Audrey Hepburn film from 1963, omitted the notice by mistake and immediately entered the public domain.

    The Alan Partridge Thread

    It's a shame that Lee & Herring get written out of the 'official history' so often…

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I have a long-held view that the Imperial architecture department was taken over by the Rebellion a long time ago…

    Super Mario Odyssey - ALL CAPS

    Amazon is where I've ordered it from, and they're normally good about getting games delivered on day of release (plus often knock about $5 off if you order far enough in advance). We don't seem to have magic like ShopTo over here…

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    I think it peaks at World 3 - 'Tom Phan' in particular is so amazing that that the game-end boss just can't compare. And maybe just a few too many 'haha, no, you have to slide the blocks this way, peasant!' puzzles in World 4 that they really started to grate.

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    The sliding block puzzles can go die in a fire, but Mario War Has Never Been So Much Fun. I love how it's such a different feel than the Laser Squad-linage of turn-based games - it encourages you to do crazy things like team jumps into a stomp jump, setting up overwatch, and then blasting with your main weapon. Also, Rabbid Peach's interactions with Princess Peach

    Doctor Who

    Here's the thing though - Moffat has been pointing out, at great lengths, for the past few years (three? four?) that this wasn't the case. Whether it's the people changing gender *and race* in Gallifrey, or the arrival Missy, you can't say that this hasn't been telegraphed for some time. I remain a touch concerned that we're going to be exploring this with McBlandy McChibnall, but at least I'm interested, which is more I got with the Kris Marshall rumour. (also: ignore anybody who says anything bad about Ace, except that there wasn't more of her and the 7th Doctor ;))

    I…am very bad at this.
