Re: Association Football (aka 'Soccer' / "The Beautiful Game")

My dad raised me as a Celtic & Millwall fan, Celtic were his team growing up and Millwall is our local, so a pretty up and down weekend for me lol. I thought Leeds were finally gonna beat us at the Den after Harris resigned but NOPE, we done em again! Only a bit bittersweet as I missed out on ticket...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I got a laptop last week and decided to try Planescape: Torment over the weekend. I wasn't sure whether I liked it at first so I just went with it and before I knew it I was 8 hours in telling myself "I'll just talk to the psychic Rat group before I go to bed". You start by waking on up on a mortuar...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

This game sounds awesome, I can get proper hooked into these kind of strategy games. I'm going to have to keep a note of it for whenever I've got myself a computer or laptop again. How much does each game differ from the last? It's a good 'un, this one; definitely take note for the future if you li...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Field of Glory: Empires - I have been playing this in a multiplayer-only context for the last month or two. Great game, really interesting mechanics. Of the multiplayer games I've played, a) I overextended myself as the Arverni, a southern French tribe, and got obliterated as a race within 10 turns...

Re: Games You've Started But Never Finished

Grandia is the one for me, I regret not playing it long enough for the game to open up and really get going. I've tried it twice and gave up pretty early. It wasn't that I disliked it either time, it just didn't make much of an impression, the intro is quite long winded and both times I was at a poi...

Re: Other podcast recommendations

I got into C&R because a film podcast I listen to did an episode on games, I decided I wanted more so I found an article that recommended C&R and have been listening ever since. I never got on with most video game media I came across, I felt like there wasn't much for me. I say this because I was ob...

This has probably been brought up before but I've just watched Midsommar and all I can think is what the fuck did I just watch?

Re: Back in time...

I've seen something like this done on a forum I was on years ago, in that case it was a poster going through every upload from a long running YouTube channel and giving commentary on the videos with various highlights etc. It worked as a history of the channel, it was a great nostalgia trip for long...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Your posts in here made me really want Criterion but it's not available in England :( Have you tried the BFI Player? Their collection is also outstanding. There's a huge overlap with Criterion in terms of world cinema classics and it's actually better for 21st century cinema. Plus at £4.99 per mont...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Time Bandits[/i][/b] This seems to be a British fantasy classic but for some reason I'm only getting to it now! It's Terry Gilliam which means it's wildly imaginative with physical special effects that have aged brilliantly. There's also a strong whiff of Python about it (not least in the presence ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm right before the last mission in Spiderman so I spent yesterday afternoon swinging around clearing up a good chunk of the remaining collectibles & side missions. Most of it has been smooth sailing but the challenges can be quite tricky, it took me a lot of attempts to get gold on all of the Dron...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm playing Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and really enjoying it. I haven't completed many Mario games (I didn't grow up with Nintendo) but I do always enjoy them and I'm a huge JRPG fan so I thought it was a good choice for a first game on my SNES Mini. It's great to pop on and play fo...

Re: Videogame Criticism

I think they know exactly what they are doing. My friend admitted to me recently that he spent nearly 400 quid on those cards in Fifa last year, lol I couldn't believe it, I had no idea it could be so costly but I imagine that is particularly bad? The thing he seemed to be most annoyed about was the...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Incase anyone is interested, the other two games I got with my PS1 were Michael Owen's Soccer and the Batman & Robin movie game, you can probably see why I spent so much time with Rascal. Got Olympic Soccer with mine. I wonder which was worse. :). (quick wikipedia search later) OH GOD THEY'RE BY TH...

I actually went back to Caligula's list to see if he had a vote that would push RE1 over the top but unfortunately he has voted for #4 :lol: Caligula! Did you sell your console in 2015? It seems that Bloodborne is the most recent game on your list :) lol it's kind of the opposite, I had a few years...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Here's my list (Not meant to be in order). I tried to only pick one game per series but I couldn't decide between FF9 or 7 so they both went in. I had PES 05 in there but really there are several PES games from 2003-7 that all just blur into one, it felt a bit weird putting any of them on the list a...

it's hard to get annoyed by adults who still go on like the kid who swears he lost his virginity at Butlins over the summer. :lol: I used to get that "I haven't got the time" patter from certified gaming nerds on a forum I used to go to.

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

There is always going to be a recency bias with these things, so it's less interesting to see what new additions crop up than what games have so concretely stayed in our collective concensus, that even 10 - 15 years later, they still make the cut. That's when you know a game goes beyond just being ...
