  1. Gave them a proper go and I think this is shit loads better using moves to create. Positioning stuff in the world much easier and making things feels far more natural. The gestures are a nice touch and work well too. My platforming into some mashed potato from close encounters level is a bit rubbish at the moment obviously, but I feel a lot more in control now.

    Went to sunny Halifax today. First visit there, but I'd definitely go again. Simple to get to and you can park right by the ground. Away fans sit in an old stand along the side of the pitch. The roof is an ancient thing from Man City's old old ground before they moved to Maine Road and far lower at the front than any modern roof so helps generate a really decent amount of noise. We lost to an added time winner which was a bit of an arse, but didn't deserve to. It was good to see Summerfield back with some nice passing in midfield. His return from injury gives us hope in the playoffs. One huge problem going forward is that we function so much better with Stuart Beavon playing up front, but he can't last a full 90 minutes never mind two games in 3 days. He was on the bench today, came on as a sub and was noticeably missed. So even if we get through the first playoff game, the thought of having to go away in the next game against a top 3 side only 3 days later doesn't fill me with loads of hope. Orient were basically promoted today, so that's one positive. They would almost certainly have beaten us as they have a billion times already this season. My guess is that we'll be resting key players on Saturday against Harrogate now that a top three place has completely gone.
  3. Yeah, the number of people playing your levels in Little Big Planet was small. Tiny compared to the random people playing your stuff in Mario Maker. I did get great satisfaction out of making stuff in LBP though, even it did take quite a while. The Media Molecule levels were ace too, particularly in LBP 2 with all the improvements they made.
  4. It doesn't use the camera. I have to admit I'm finding the controls quite fiddly so far. On the dualshock and in the brief go I had using moves. I'm also not sure how much better they can actually be though aside from combining the methods and using the dualshock lightbar. Obviously creating things in 3D space comes with an extra set of challenges to the2.5D level creation of Little Big Planet, but I'm not sure I want to invest the time required to become comfortable with everything to properly enjoy making things, particularly when the results appear to be less enjoyable to actually play than Little Big Planet. I am impressed by the non game elements people have created, and I'll persist a bit and probably try the moves again, but at the moment I can see myself stopping and holding my creative urges back for Mario Maker 2.

    Woolly is more of a proper platformer which is the main reason I think prefer it, compared to all that looking around you do in Crafted World. That's just my taste in games though. Crafted World is probably a bit more suited to impress time pressed reviewers than Woolly World though. Playing through it to finish without worrying about getting 100%. And it does impress more visually. Woolly reveals its true aceness through rinsing it to death.

    Not much of fan of them, but Da Funk is ace.

    It's certainly an aspiration to get to Wembley for the first time and there is the novelty of seeing a ground you've not been to (as there is visiting any football ground). I enjoyed our first trip to play Grimsby, but once is definitely enough. If we get there, one of my friends has suggested we all meet up at a pub in north London and watch the final on TV.

    Losing once was bad enough. The thing is, we lost our playoff final game quite late on 6 years ago, but even if we had won late on instead it still would have been the most awful football experience of my life up to the point at which we hypothetically scored. And Wembley is a terrible ground for staging games between lower or none league clubs. Awful. It's probably not that good when the stadium is full. I really don't want to go back there. I did actually go back there to see us lose against North Ferriby and it was still shit, but because they no longer exist that didn't happen.

    Yes please Cosmic_Guru. Can't actually go to the Sutton game because I'm working, but I think I'm going to make it up to myself by going to Halifax away on Easter Monday instead. A nice late 2-1 win against Barnet and Wrexham are officially in the playoffs for the first time since 2013. 3rd or indeed 6th is not completely gone yet, but it's highly likely that we'll be 4th or 5th. So probably a game against Harrogate or Eastleigh at the Racecourse to then play one of Salford, Orient, or Solihull away. Somehow win that and we'll likely be playing another one of those top 3 at Wembley. Win that and we're in the football league. Easy peasy. I can't help but think about what could have been had Ricketts not fucked off before Christmas, but considering we're on our third manager this season and how we've failed in recent seasons, a top 5 finish will be a decent achievement I think. Losing key players on top of managers has not helped our chances either. Defensively we've almost always been really good , we did look all round ace at times before Christmas too, and sporadically okay since. Hopefully we'll build on the last two victories and play ourselves into some promotion worthy competitive form in the last three games.

    It was on playstation plus a while ago. Not completely shit, but also not worth your money.

    We're very likely to secure a playoff place, but I see us losing the first game we play away from home in those playoffs. However, who the fuck knows, it's football. I think Leyton Orient will drop further points. Solihull have messed up a little recently too. Salford should take advantage of that now, although they do have one tough game left against Fylde.

    Dean Keates sacked at Walsall then. Not massively surprising the way things have turned out for him. In truth, no other League club would have poached him at the time they did from us last season. Similarly, no other National League club would have made him their manager when we did. He did do a decent job turning Wrexham's fortunes around though, even if it involved the most negative football I've ever witnessed at the club, so he'll probably pop up again at some other non-league club sooner or later. Pleasing 3-1 win for us on Saturday. As expected, Braintree were pretty shit, like all those sides near the bottom have been. Wrexham were forced into changes due to a virus in the squad, but were dominant with shit loads of shots without being amazing. Braintree equalised at the end of the first half with a bit of good fortune, but should have been down to 10 men before that. We were fine in the second half though. Oh yeah, centre back Shaun Pearson is now our top scorer with 6. Has any team ever been promoted where their centre back has been top scorer? He got an assist too setting up the first.
