  1. Judging by the way they're hyping, Disney already tried the "regular guy who likes guys" thing in Beauty and the Beast and it was far too subtle to the extent they're not counting him as a gay character any more. There is a bit of the same complaints that the Scarlett Johansson film that had to be scrapped had relating to "it should be an actual gay person playing the part" but I am with you that I'm more worried about his description which reeks of homosexual caricature, given subtlety and nuance aren't particularly Whitehalls strengths that's a bit worrying
  2. FINALLY! About time Spurs did something during this window!
  3. Sadly it's one of the quest lines that was left incomplete and not implemented as well as planned. Apparently was going to be a lot more fluid and ongoing with proper events but changes were made so it's a little half arsed in some respects. Would've been very interesting to see with the full plans, especially as it was one of the hangovers from the Song of Ice and Fire stage of the games development.
  4. I for one can't wait for the media to roll out this at every opportunity should that happen.
  5. I'd like to see the lack of action there as a "ffs Neymar" from the officials.
  6. I've not particularly thought of this one on paper as being particularly troublesome to watch from the perspective of my colourblindness but anything that makes it easier is a good thing in my book. There are usually about a dozen games on during the course of the league season that end up unwatchable due to unforseen kit clashes so any concession made to make it easier visually I'm happy with. Even if I'm of the "it's to flog the alternative kits just in case we don't use them" opinion at least it makes it an easy game to watch for me.
  7. Like video games you get cheap and crappy licenses based on the fact you know that people will by them, some that are "okay" and some that are real gems. Ultimately it's easier to see based on a particular game you're thinking of rather than trying to go through and list them. Recently Tabletop Gaming magazine did a top 150 games list based on audience votes and a few licensed games made the list. Dinosaur Island (as close to a Jurassic Park game as you'll get so I'll include it should you see it somewhere) Firefly : The Game Star Wars : Imperial Assault (miniatures game with lots of expansions so beware plastic crack problem) Lord of the Rings The Card Game (living card game so lots of expansions and so on again) Legendary Deck Building Game - Comes in Marvel which is the main game, as well as Aliens, Predator, Buffy and probably a couple more I've not come across yet. Fury of Dracula War of the Ring Star Wars : Rebellion Battlestar Galactica : the board game X Wing Miniatures game (as said above, beware the plastic crack as some great models (and prepainted which cuts some of the work) A Game of Thrones - The Board Game You'll also get variants of popular board games like Catan, Munchkin, Carcassone, Love Letter and family favourites like Monopoly that if you like the original and don't happen to have it I'm sure will be reasonable enough fun. Some do add different mechanics which can be interesting even if you have the original but that's something that will vary from person to person. I mean, it was a fan vote list so I accept fanboy votes could account for some of it but I've heard good things about them and enjoyed the ones I've played (Fury of Dracula, X Wing, AGoT, WoTR and Dinosaur Island). I've also got Ghostbusters, which we enjoy playing every now and then and plan on getting the second game.
  8. Rehearsal schedule is meaning that I'm not able to follow most of the evening kick offs for the next week then into a two week run which'll mean sitting in a quiet corner of the dressing room and hoping not to miss an entrance watching on the phone. For England games we're quite lucky but I couldn't help noticing we're on stage during the Belgium game. Hoping that one'll be a dull 0-0 with very few efforts because the pub across the road could be quite lively. At least we're done when we get to the knock out stages so I can sit back and enjoy it all.
  9. I used to really enjoy Operation Genesis. If JW:Evolution has a similar feel to that I'm going to lose so many days of my life.
  10. Yeah Karius had complete "control" of the ball when he throws it out and there's no contact between the two. So once he throws the ball the game is live when the legs stuck out and it goes in. Was amazing to see the FIFA International Soccer special work in the real world for once
  11. I don't think when Salah grabs his arm his thoughts were "I could possibly break his arm here if I play my cards right" due to how quickly it really happened but I also don't think he'll lose much sleep over it either. He's a dick and I don't doubt a big part of the game plan was to cynically kick Salah and keep snapping at him throughout the game but it's not like he had a lot of time to think "I can do him here".
  12. There was no contact anywhere near him and it was clearly a dive as an excuse to try and punch Karius in the face several times it's obvious! Also something about how shit Harry Kane is [/Liverpool]
  13. This games ridiculous now. 6-5 Leicester?
  14. Did a meet and greet at the hotel across the road with fans before the game as well. So glad to see how he's getting on these days.
  15. If we didn't have demo disks we'd never have got the WW1 themed Sensible Soccer, that alone should be enough reason for people to still do them. I would love if more companies released demos and little side content like that to get a feel for the game. Doesn't need to necessarily be anything story based, something to get used to how it runs ,controls and the theme of the game is all I ask.
