  1. SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    Sounds promising.
  2. I was assuming it was something I’d forgotten from the last series, having not watched it since the original broadcast!
  3. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Got this guy earlier (weighs a bloody tonne though!).
  4. Taiko Drum Master Switch

    The PS4 game apparently has an English option, so hopefully the Switch one will too.
  5. Taiko Drum Master Switch

    I was going to say I wish it came with a big drum controller and massive wooden sticks like the arcade game, but then remembered my hands were really hurting after playing that for ten minutes, so the virtual version is probably much better
  6. You're saying it wrong!

    I remember one series of 24 featured a Graham for a few episodes. Every single person to utter his name pronounced it differently, including both his brother and father (I think going for "Grarm" and "Graim").
  7. Pokemon Go

    Today marks one of the very rare occasions I’m in the building where my office is in range of two Pokestops, so a great chance to restock after Sunday
  8. Nintendo Switch

    Pretty sure 500円 means 500 yen, but I have no idea what the rest of it says!
  9. Formula One - 2018 Season

    Vettel said after the race that he knew he had no chance of holding off the freshly-tyred Verstappen, so rather than risk getting taken out he was always intending to give up the place when the challenge came. It's just he went into that corner thinking "he's too far back, there's no way he'll attempt something here", fatally underestimating where Mad Max sets the threshold for a chance worth taking.
  10. Formula One - 2018 Season

    I remember some one saying recently (possibly Brundle?) that because the halo was invented they now have to use it, because if they stopped and an accident occurs which it could have prevented there’d be no way of justifying its absence from a legal/health and safety perspective.
  11. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Off topic a bit; but a discussion about what sort of planets/settings they could have for the next one led the awesome idea of an zero gravity Jedi battle. Could be a major set piece where the artificial gravity fails in a Star Destroyer shuttle bay or something, with loads of troops from both sides suddenly floating around in a firefight along with lots of equipment and ships, and in the middle of it all you have a force user on both sides who can now basically both fly whilst using it to fling massive bits of hardware at each other. It’s cool in my head anyway
  12. Hollywood vs. Streaming

    Norwich has two cheap cinemas; a rundown independent (they took over the old Odeon when they built themselves a big multiplex about 18 years ago and I don’t think they’ve done anything to it since!) which is £5.99, and Vue recently switched to an “all 2D films are £4.99” structure. They and Odeon both used to be about £12 a ticket, but then Odeon introduced their Unlimited films for £17.99 a month thing, which I assume hit Vue hard and made them try this. I go to the cinema about once a fortnight, almost exclusively to the cheaper ones. They screen about 80% of what I want to see, but if they’re not showing something I almost always wait for the dvd or Blu-ray instead (I think Mindhorn and Amy are the only two I’ve seen at the expensive cinemas in the last five years or so). Paying double the usual price just seems like very poor value compared to buying the disc, especially as I get a better picture at home (The Last Jedi looked sharp as fuck when I watched it last night! The cinema screen is fine when I’m there, but if I later watch the same film at home I always notice how great it looks in comparison!). I’m not sure what I’d do if they all went to £12 odd a ticket. Probably only go three or four ‘must sees’ a year rather than it being a regular thing.
  13. Pokemon Go

    They seem to have halved the distance you have to walk for a candy too - the Nuzleaf I've walked for 140km is now showing 1.5 rather than 3km - which nowhere (that I've seen) appears to be mentioning.
  14. Formula One - 2018 Season

    I can already hear them threatening to leave! Thing is unless they can persuade most of the teams to follow them (especially including Mercedes and Red Bull) they won’t really have anywhere else to go.
  15. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - December 2017

    Their £15 for the Blu Ray is as cheap as I’ve seen anywhere else (at least in stores, haven’t looked too closely online), so still a nice bonus if you don’t have to go too far out of your way to find a branch!
