I've watched a few recently...

Trainspotting 2        7.5/10        Liked it, it didn't ruin the 1st one for me either
The Drop                 8.5/10        Loved it, mint film
The Big Short          8.5/10        Same as above
From Bedrooms to Billions - The Amiga Years 7/10
That mark is if you have an interest. I didn't have an Amiga so didn't find it as interesting as the first one covering the UK 8bit video game industry.

Just the thing from my journey back to Leeds from Poole tomorrow.

DON'T put them in the washing machine, please!

Get some of this, it's superb.

I've been pretty amazed as to just how good it is.

Hammering God of War 3 : remastered at the minute. Never played one before and it was only 9 quid in the sale so why not. Enjoying it a fair bit. More than I thought I would. smile

I've played ALL of them many times (I got all the remasters for the PS3 including the Vita ones), love the series. Looking forward to the new one, and the change of direction/style, as I was getting a liitle bored.

Quite a few hours into Tomb Raider on PS4. Really enjoying it, absolutely loads to do and amazing graphics to enjoy

I've hammered through it twice, thought it was great.

Dishonoured is an absolutely class game - it's why I'm keeping #2 as my Xmas game, so I can sit down and play it properly / take my time with it.

Highly recommended.

Playing Dishonoured 2... I am dreadful at this game! Can't remember ever dying as much...

think I got my first pair of 'branded' trainers then.

pretty sure they were Puma Set. Lovely white trainers that were 'christened' with muddy shoes as soon as I wore them into the playground smile

The "christening" sounds about right. I broke my toe when I was 13/14 so was allowed to wear trainers instead of shoes (quite a strict school with regards uniform). The trainer on the foot with the broken toe was left alone, the other one was pretty much trodden on all day! They looked like they belonged to different pairs by the end of the day...

'85 must be about the time of adidas kick

Got my first pair of Kick in 82.

The reason I know that is because I wasn't allowed "branded" trainers until I was 10 sad

It's a Christmas miracle! big_smile

Definitely not the type of result we are so used to of the last 10 years.

Im back in May too. Will be attending al play off shenanigans. But obv we are going auto promotion .

We actually seem like a totally different team, playing really good football. Automatic promotion will be tricky, but not impossible if we keep playing like we have been.

I'm starting to think it might be!

Merry Christmas everyone, let's be nice to each other. For a couple of days anyway... wink

seeing this has made me realise that it's about 25 years since I watched the original.

I know there are a few versions of it out now but I wondered which one is the best to watch now? The original / directors cut / The final cut etc?

I seem to remember Kermode did a doc on the film too - is that worth tracking down?

The best documentary by far is "Dangerous Days". It's 3 and a half hours long and superb. It's on the blu-ray final cut, and the 5 disc dvd boxset (also available from less legit sources)....

There is a link to download part 2, so surely no download option for part 1 is an oversight? Which is what I was pointing out.

I'm one of the most polite people on here... So, fuck you knobhead!!! wink

Lovely stuff, cheers.

Anyone else tried the PSVR?

There's a demo of Resident Evil available at the minutes - it's supposed to scare the living shit out of you.  Even Batman was a bit jumpy - it creates quite a claustrophobic environment.

I've tried it, I was very impressed, but not enough to buy one. I have a sneaky feeling that it's just going to die, like 3D and motion controllers have...

It needs a killer app and support from the big players - unfortunately no one knows quite what to do with it. It only really works for cockpit style or slow moving stuff (otherwise you get a sense of nausea due to your eyes getting different info from your vestibular system) so because you can't do FPS's people don't have any ideas and won't invest the millions needed.

I think it's got more of a chance that the other stuff you listed but it still needs that magic thing.

Toying with getting myself one for Xmas - it really could be the next big thing - fingers crossed.

I did toy with the idea myself, but I'm going to hang fire. I reckon my mate KP would lend me his if I asked him nicely.

Just finished the Battlefield 1 SP campaign - quite enjoyable and reasonably tasteful given the subject matter. Worth playing.

The brits don't get a very good showing in it like - The Royal air force / flying core mission has you playing a all American hero yank (quelle surpris) who sneaks in and in another mission they artilery shell their own men in a fuck up.

Titanfall 2 next, then Dishonoured 2, then the Last Guardian.

So much to play at the moment. No wonder these games aren't selling as much as they used to.

I've just ordered Rise of the Tomb Raider as my "Christmas game", I was thinking of getting Dishonoured 2 as well, I've not played the first one though.

Fair weather fans, gotta love'em.

Just because I'm not posting in this thread, doesn't mean I'm fair weather. I've seen them get beaten by Sheffield United on a wet Tuesday night in League 1!

PS.

I'm not taking "Fair Weather" literally, it's just a coincidence it was wet....
