  1. I was at the Newcastle gig on the Scarling tour, which again played to no more than about 20 people. If I remember correctly, Jessika invited everyone to join her on stage for a sing along of 'Band Aid Only Covers the Bullet Hole'. I was lucky enough to get tickets to the Jack Off Jill reunion show at the Electric Ballroom about five years ago, which was absolutely packed and probably the best concert I've ever been to. Given that they originally split up without ever having made it to the UK, I'd long ago given up any hope of seeing them live (as had, I suspect, most of the crowd)
  2. I know it's a bit late, but have a look at coin holder capsules for your tokens (they come in various sizes). If you seal all your remaining tokens up you can just stick a home-made one in another capsule, and as I assume it's for blind drawing from a bag the difference won't be noticeable.
  3. I'll put in a good word for The Outpost in Sheffield. I've ordered a fair bit from them (mostly GW) and have never had any issues. They're definitely worth a look for GW, Privateer or other wargaming stuff.
  4. Ni No Kuni Remastered: Wrath of the White Witch has just dropped to £7.99 from £49.99, valid for the next week.
  5. The Switch version has just popped into today's sale on the e-shop - £8.99/£11.69 for the standard/deluxe editions.
  6. This is cheating a bit, as there used to be a version of this doing the rounds of the clubs 10-15 years ago. The AI came up with something fairly close to what I remember of the original. Pop Will Eat Itself vs Danny Elfman: https://rave.dj/r9i_rdjUEFEm_w
  7. There's definitely something screwy going on with the online service at the moment. I reinstalled the Steam version this morning (had it since launch), but it seems that since crossplay with Epic went live in the latest patch the Steam version has a habit of crashing every 50 minutes or so. Going offline seems to fix things, so it'll hopefully be taken care of by the time to DLC launches on the 20th. Perhaps Epic cloud saves will be sorted out at the same point.
  8. The PC version is down to £12.99 at CDKeys at the moment, which felt like the right time to dive in. It's a nice game to swim around in, and whilst combat seems to involve a lot of flailing around so far it's been entertaining just swimming around seeing the sights. Plus, my 6yo loves eating turtles. And people.
  9. It's worth periodically checking your Startup Apps in System Settings, just to make sure you're not trying to load anything you don't need in the background. The latest Windows update added Skype, and the various game launchers will auto-run given half the chance. I've just joined the new PC club, as it's been eight years since I built my last one (barring graphics card upgrades). The previous machine is still sound as it's got a GTX 1080, but was starting to show its age with games which require a bit more heft from the CPU - AC Odyssey was noticably suffering from freezes and stu
  10. I was 12 in 1990. I don’t have many gaming memories of that year, as my Mum spent most of it in hospital having contracted a horrific flu just before Christmas ‘89. I know I got my C64 somewhere around that time, but can’t be certain when. I may still have been playing games on our BBC B, and if so it’ll have been older stuff like Exile, Spycat, or any of the other Superior Software adventure games. Once the C64 came along I’ll have moved onto Turrican, Golden Axe, Ironman Stewarts Super Off-road Racing, and Lords of Chaos (all 1990 releases).
  11. I’m guessing that you’re thinking of ‘The best... album in the world ever’, as I’m fairly sure that’s where I first picked up on Therapy? as well. Since then they’ve been a constant part of my life, and are up with Wildhearts and Antiproduct for the band I’ve seen live most often (most recently with Terrorvision last year in Halifax). Most of my closest friends are people I got to know through turning up at the same gigs.
  12. If anyone fancies getting into Age of Sigmar, Mortal Realms goes on sale today. My local Smiths had loads of copies of the first issue in stock, which for £2.99 comes with 10 Nighthaunt Chainrasps and 3 Stormcast Sequitors.
  13. So far I’ve picked up Darksiders III for just over a fiver, and Outward for £3.99. Yaga is only £3.99 with the voucher, so I’m tempted by that as well.

  15. I see your challenge, and reply with my N-Gage with Pandemonium, and Gizmondo with Trailblazer. Not only were the games fairly uninspiring, but in both cases you have legendarily terrible hardware.
