    Official Mixed Martial Arts Thread

    I don't think whether he got KO'd or kneeknack really matters - for a fighter who appears to be made of balsa wood and has had years on the sidelines and pulling out of contests with injury the end result, however it came, doesn't move him on an upwards trajectory.
  2. I was thinking of the old Destruction Derby bowls but they got a bit boring quite fast - I like the idea of cars and deform/damage models but not weapons on them so maybe you’d need a lot of jumps/ramps/environmental interest to make a destruction derby thing work
  3. this would be fantastic - classic old school huge maps with 50+ players
  4. With the surprise launch and good reception forTetris 99 I'm sure that every publishing suit and marketing person is trying to get a battle royale series going outside the shooter genre - what would you personally like to see next or think would work ?

    On the evidence of what I’ve seen this season can’t fathom what possessed chelsea other than desperation to pay that much for Kepa, know De Gea looked a bit lightweight in his first season but my recollection was he didnt like crosses, not every aspect of being a keeper.

    and of those fights he spent 2011-13 fighting Bigfoot and JDS 5 times ! he beat Cheik Kongo, an injury ravaged Brock Lesnar and Travis Brown, losing to Werdum convincingly when he didn't bother to acclimatise to fighting at altitude. Stipe has arguably a better record in title fights.

    Barbarena Luque was amazing - if only Barbarena got on his bike for last 30s - he was brave but a bit dumb. Velasquez is done, he's the Darren Anderton of MMA, every long layoff has him being declared better and better but he's just not ever going to be able to stay fit and string fights together - there is a theoretical argument about how good he could have been but I'll never buy him as one of the best ever HW based on performances.

    Norwich Fortnite Fyre Festival

    Organisers should learn from the game here - make the event free to get in then charge everybody to buy hats they can wear and run around in once inside ?

    Nightflyers - George RR Martin

    I finished it as am a sucker for a space ship but found it pretty hokey on the whole - the storyline with the hacking sequences was awful.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    New Star Manager starts to get to you when things fall apart - my glorious first season promo push is falling apart with 3 straight defeats in the league and an unhappy group of players - I've mostly ignored their happiness to focus on energy and may have gone a bit first season Klopp at Liverpool and worn them all out - I won't post a running commentary of my season but @unleashedmaniac maniac said if you're on the fence (a few people seemed to be) then give New Star another chance - I vowed never again (and won't on my phone for free) but am so glad I went back. Now I hope they don't fuck it up and having taken my £15 introduce IAPs and an in store shop in a future release - if they do I'm done with it.

    Das Boot TV sequel coming to Sky

    Episode 6 referenced above in spoilers has been the stand out so far - just fantastic tension and freewheeling flipping of emotions as you see awful acts and decisions followed quickly by great bravery - I know its fiction but you can't imagine the horrors or choices a lot of people suffered during WW2. The resistance storyline has grown on me too - initially I just wanted it all set in the U boat but can see with a series you need another story/viewpoint to break things up a bit. One of my fave series of recent times.

    Food Prepping

    I've been very surprised at how well pasta freezes and reheats - the key I've learnt is to leave it a little under when first dishing up and then to microwave on a lower power setting so as not to nuke it. With that in mind I've been researching the classic carbonara recipe, there is a good Jamie Oliver video on youtube showing the techniques well, and the Guardian page appealed to me with its richness and 2 cheeses. I ignored US recipes with added cream and peas (though frozen, not fresh, peas do make most things better). https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/2012/may/10/how-to-cook-perfect-spaghetti-carbonara This is quite an experimental pot, I have concerns about the excess egg liquid which didn't stick to the spaghetti going a bit scrambled eggy on reheating (so many people online get scrambled egg when first mixing as don't take the pan off the heat) - and the second experiment is a little side of shop bought gnocchi, which i cooked in boiling water then browned off in some sage butter. They may fall apart or turn to shapeless splodges, I didn't want to waste the effort of making from scratch if it won't work.

    Nintendo eShop (Software Chatter)

    I'm halfway thru my first season in New Star Manager and still loving it, its so immediate to play and perfect for those quick Switch on/off bitesized moments of gaming. I've started to build up some money and get to grips with the management menus & systems, its a tight balancing act at all times rotating players to keep up their energy and choose the matches to rest them up. The highlight though are the in game events, its really been beefed up since I abandoned New Star Soccer and you get some really cool passages of play that can be quite tense in a close match. I love the media pressure moments where you get asked about your club staff names or players - really puts you on the spot and you get a couple of bonus cards for being successful. It's a little buggy so had to restart the software a couple of times when I lost the ability to make subs, or music started playing all the time, but minor issues. I can see this being my go to on the switch for months, its a bargain at £15.

    I find the rabid social media followings of players like Pogba and Ozil a bit weird (I know I'm not the generation for it) - its almost like the players have managed to carefully curate a visual non verbal image for themselves on places like twitter and instagram whereby people are fans of the player and not the clubs/country they represent. It's the antithesis of what team sports are about. I honestly can't believe anybody who has queued for an hour in the online box office a month ahead of a game for tickets, paid their £50-100 for a seat at the emirates and then spent 90m getting to the ground will be in the fervent defender camp having watched Ozil stroll around or phone in another performance. If however you've seen all his greatest assist compilations on youtube and are impressed by his Fortnite stats it may be a different matter. His social media team clearly taking a page from the Pogba playbook here with how they brilliantly helped grease the wheels of Jose's exit (though of course Jose had a bit to do with that too) - I don't see Ozil being as influential in the dressing room with others players as Pogba though, he's more a mouse than a big personality.

    analysis of Liverpool's recent accounts http://priceoffootball.com/liverpool-2017-18-toxteth-ogrady/ Young Ones fans will like the headline, the person who got cross when the profit was credited to the sale of Coutinho will probably get angry again.
