  1. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Holy shit, we didn't get PSG. BARCA. FUCK.
  2. Final Fantasy

    Been a while since I've looked in this topic so the FFIX on PS4 thing is news to me. Might well be a temptation I'm unlikely to resist over Christmas...
  3. Complete Your Collection

    Europa Universalis IV: 35 out of 255 (14%) 10 more down. And no, they don't include the 'An Early Reich' one I was working on last month, because I got cocky and screwed it up. Decided to try some other ones (including bombing the 'form Italy' achievement with similar aplomb) before going back to it. 26. The Emperor's new clothes 27. Not so sad a state... 28. Truly Divine Ruler 29. All belongs to Mother Russia 30. On every continent 31. Double the Love 32. Voting Streak 33. An Industrial Evolution 34. Full House 35. Factionalism
  4. Premier League 2017/18

    Well I doubt we're going to get even one goal, let alone two, so that solves that I guess.
  5. Premier League 2017/18

    Behind after six minutes. FFS.
  6. Star Trek TV

    Duet is legitimately in the Top 10 of DS9 episodes. Possibly Top 5, but I can't be certain. ...Oh God, I'm going to end up trying to rank them this weekend, aren't I?
  7. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Pretty good game last night. Given the amount of chances we had we really ought to have won, but eh. Unless Sevilla overtake Liverpool in their group tonight, we only have 3 possible teams we can face in the next round: PSG, Barcelona...and Besiktas. One of these is not like the others. It'll be PSG for the billionth time though. Because of fucking course it will.
  8. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Alonso gets a vital rest (one of Moses and Zappacosta will be on the left, not sure which), but otherwise full-strength from Chelsea. My gut feeling is that Atleti will get a win because they need it more, but then Roma will likely beat Qarabag to make it meaningless anyway.
  9. The Assassin's Creed Series

    TBH in Syndicate I was too busy playing Victorian Batman with the winch gadget to even remember what the rooftop guards were like. Although I do remember making laps of the Buckingham Palace roofs and killing the same four respawning guards over and over again for the sake of some trophy or other.
  10. The Assassin's Creed Series

    Oh thank God. The armed population of all the rooftops of the world seems to have been on an exponential curve since AC2.
  11. The Emirates FA Cup 2017/18

    Norwich away. Fair enough.
  12. Premier League 2017/18

    Mark Clattenburg: I allowed Tottenham to self-destruct against Chelsea in 2016 Ah, fond memories.
  13. What Did You Watch Today?

    Watched Jarhead yesterday for only the second time since it came out (12 years ago). A most underrated war film, not least because there aren't many that linger on the classic soldier experience of almost going stir-crazy with nothing to do.
  14. Goodreads Reading Challenge/General Bookery

    I think there was evidently a point where the series was already so popular that they were like "ah hell, she can do what she wants". This was not a responsible decision.
  15. Goodreads Reading Challenge/General Bookery

    My reading of the Harry Potter books (for the first time) continues. Finished the fifth one last night. I'm really torn about The Order of the Phoenix. I would say that my favourite Harry Potter book is in there SOMEWHERE...but also with about another two-thirds of a distinctly average Harry Potter book crammed in alongside it (hence it also being too bloody long). The Dolores Umbridge arc is magnificent, and there are some excellent Weasley-centred sub-plots, but pretty much everything related to Voldemort seemed entirely tacked on. Not to mention that the eponymous Order of the Phoenix itself does relatively little outside of Providing A House To Stay In and then playing the part of The Cavalry at the end. That's after going to the trouble of adding new characters, such as Tonks, who get introduced and then basically ignored. Overall ranking so far? I'm going to put it at #2, because it's not as well-formed an entity as Goblet of Fire, but it has too much good in it to put further down. At least the next book is back to a respectable length, thank God.
