  1. Joking aside, he's backed Neal Ardley in the transfer window, despite putting the club up for sale. He's been happy to let Ardley bring in the types of players that suit his tactical style and who'll battle hard in a relegation fight. He's incapable of using Twitter responsibly and clearly has some issues in his personal life, but he's got the interests of the club at heart.
  2. Great day today. Notts were all over Mansfield and got the win, putting them just two points from safety. That's seven points from nine against the teams placed first, second and fourth in the league over the last couple of weeks. Fantastic.
  3. I've only played part of Yakuza 0, but I'm inclined to agree. With so many open world games opting for vast expanses of empty space, it's really refreshing to play a game that packs so much into a relatively small geographical area. If I think about my favourite game locations, I'm thinking of Shadow Moses from Metal Gear Solid, the region of Yokosuka from Shenmue and the police station from Resident Evil 2. They're all fairly small settings that become increasingly familiar as you continue playing. Contrast that with the sprawling mass of nothingness you get in games like Far Cry, which are so much less memorable.
  4. I think one of my biggest problems with piracy is that it punishes the wrong people. By and large, it's the publishers who dictate whether or not a game includes the kind of anti-consumer features that drive people to pirate games. By choosing to play the game illegally, chances are that the higher-ups will leave more or less untouched and the developer will be more likely to have to get rid of innocent staff members to account for what publishers deem to be disappointing sales figures.
  5. Flower is now available on PC. It's a nice, relaxing experience that is worth a look.
  6. If you buy games on Steam, you have a two-hour play time window to request a refund if you don't like it. That's a demo of sorts.
  7. I thought it was created to remind us that Jerome Flynn existed.
  8. Give me crazy nonsense in a WWE game over a repetitive, directionless career mode any day.
  9. Final Fantasy IX is £16.99 on Switch. I know it's a long game, but that's taking a not insignificant amount of piss.
  10. I think it's just a "last person standing" game where you only focus on your own performance.
  11. My problem with panel shows is that there are a lot of good concepts, but I find that the guests aren't to my taste more often than not. Hypothetical sounds like an interesting idea, but I find Widdicombe and particularly Acaster more annoying than funny, so it's probably not for me. Really, there are only a select few stand-up comedians who do anything for me right now. Reginald D Hunter is someone whose appearances on panel shows I relish, as is David Mitchell, although he's more of a comic actor/writer than a stand-up. By and large, I think it's the non-comedians who entertain me most, with Richard Osman and Victoria Coren-Mitchell always delivering. A small number of performers, particularly Russell Howard and Sarah Millican, I'll actively avoid.
  12. Lots of interesting under-the-radar stuff there. I thought it was a good showcase.
  13. This looks as though it could be a good starting point for the Fire Emblem series. I've been looking to get into it for a while. Link's Awakening has been given the Trumpton remake treatment.
  14. Super Mario Maker 2 is coming in June.
  15. Not really. MGS 4 got great review scores at the time, but most Metal Gear fans don't consider it to be the best one. I'm with them, although I don't think it's anywhere near as bad as some people do. While we're talking about Metal Gear, I liked playing as Raiden in MGS 2. Yes, the codec calls with Rose were tedious, but I thought his character arc was good and it was interesting to see Snake from the perspective of someone else. As for highly regarded games I don't like, Bayonetta comes to mind first. I wouldn't argue against the claim that it's mechanically solid, but the initial buzz wore off for me quickly. I found the titular character herself thoroughly unlikable and the story a poorly told mess, but my biggest annoyance was that it just seemed to be trying way too hard to be funny. Finishing off enemies triggered these elaborate QTEs that might as well have been saying, "LOOK! HERE'S A CLOSE-UP OF HER BOTTOM! DID YOU SEE? DID YOU SEE? ISN'T OUR SATIRISATION OF MALE FETISHES SO RIPROARINGLY HILARIOUS? WE'LL SHOW YOU AGAIN IN A FEW MINUTES IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!" Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance had a similar problem, albeit without a comedically "sexy" player character. I find the whole "too cool for school" vibe Platinum goes for to miss emphatically, and it really puts me off their games.
