Re: Euros 2024 - fixtures, results and discussion

Spain Vs Croatia is very interesting to watch so far. 3-0 to Spain at half time but Croatia have had plenty of chances, bit unlucky to be three down. Both teams playing exciting, attacking football.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I bought Cocoon on Switch in a recent sale. This is a very good game. So inventive and smart, like the cliché about Mario games, it comes up with ideas and then moves on, game mechanics never outstaying their welcome. It looks gorgeous too, even on Switch. The intricate alien machines, the way they ...

Re: Euros 2024 - fixtures, results and discussion

Bit of a thrashing for Scotland last night, they never looked like they were any threat to the Germans to be honest. I did love the way the fans celebrated their lucky consolation goal, though!

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (16.6.24) - 625: Policenauts

SPOILERS IN THIS POST! You have been warned! It may have taken me the best part of 15 years to finally get this game finished, but I was determined to complete it before the show, and I'm glad I finally have! Policenauts really is a great game. It's more visual novel than anything else, aside from ...

Anyone watched Insomnia series with Vicky McClure on Paramount? One episode left to come out next week and it's been pretty decent.

Thread back from the dead! Only 9 (nine!?!) years later! Not sure why I stopped doing this back in 2015 but I've not had PS+ in a long old time and got it again now, so for purely selfish reasons the thread has been resurrected!

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Just finished Bodkin on Netflix. Seems to have had middling reviews (69% on Rotten Tomatoes) but I really enjoyed it. It's about a team of podcasters investigating a 20 year old mystery in a small Irish village and goes off with plenty of twists and turns in the tale. I recommend.

Re: 648: The Story of Thor (Beyond Oasis)

I just started this game last night via the Switch Online Megadrive collection. First impressions are that it looks really nice, lovely big sprites and some nice animation, even if movement is a little jerky. The game seems very simplistic, but I'm happy with that at the moment, being stuck in a bit...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (16.6.24) - 625: Policenauts

Playing via the translated PSX ISOs on my Vita and just took me ages to work out how to transition from disc one to disc two. Was looking all through the Adrenaline (PSP emulator) settings before realising you do it through the 'official' Vita settings - just in case anyone has the same issue!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So pissed off. My EAFC 24 career mode save - 30+ hours, has corrupted somehow and won't load. Crashed the game every time I try to load it. Same thing has happened with my son's save as well. Ridiculous.

Re: Euros 2024 - fixtures, results and discussion

So anyway, I'm hoping Southgate can manage better than he has done in the recent matches. Thought we've been terribly dull to watch, totally lacking any kind of drive. I think leaving Grealish at home was a mistake. I know he's not had a good season with City but I think he's one of those players wh...

See below for all match fixtures, groups and results! Matches include UK kick off time, and will be shown on either BBC or ITV. GR...

Re: 625: Policenauts

Out of interest is anyone here actually playing this before the show? (Other than those who will be on the actual show, of course!)

I'm about halfway through the game at the moment and enjoying it. Just wondered if anyone else is playing.
