  1. Jon Ronson's So You've Been Publicly Shamed is only 99p right now.
  2. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabel_Hardman#Personal_life I'm not sure that I trust Hardman's view on who the right politicians are.

    If you think season 1 is good, you are going to love season 2.
  4. The Lite looks like a decent handheld. But has there been any word on where'er the issue of controller drift has yet been fixed? At least with the OG Switch you can replace the controllers if they start malfunctioning. The controller drift problem is the only misstep for Nintendo this generation. When my first controller started showing signs Nintendo's repair centre refused to fix the problem for free, expecting about £30, for repairing what seems to be a defect with the device.
  5. Three (what should be) simple policies would support this out: Firstly, a console-wide block on in-game purchases, which can be activated through the dashboard. Secondly, 2FA on all purchases made. Thirdly, and this is the most important. An upper limit for in-game purchases for each game, set at a fixed amount (maybe £40, for the sake of this debate). Once that limit is reached, the player gets access to everything that paid-for loot boxes can contain. Characters, outfits, the lot. Loot boxes could still exist, but they could not become a bottomless pit into which addicted gamers could end up pouring money in the hope of getting an elusive item. And there is no reason why developed can not include loot boxes with rare items that are awarded on in-game activity, rather than for cash.
  6. My son seems to be having a lot of fun with it, and whilst I miss the simplicity of the first game I look forward to having a go on this when I get a chance. TBH, I'm more relaxed about the flaws of a game which is £25 than if I had paid £40 for it.
  7. Kiwami is Japanese for 'Ultimate'. Yakuza Kiwami is basically a remastered version of the PS2 Yakuza game, with the same for Yakuza Kiwami 2 (with some gameplay additions).
  8. A detour on the way back from Hiroshima! Spoilered below for length. Walking the streets: Heading up the mountain: Visiting temples: Finding poetry stones: Wandering the shoreline: Going shopping: Side quest - befriending a few of the many stray cats: A lovely little town tucked out of the way that really deserved a couple of days to visit properly (so many temples), rather than the several hours that I had. Also, of you plan to walk up the hillside I recommend not going in Kiryu-attire. I walk a lot and was in a t-shirt and shorts, and by the top was sweating like a right bastard.
  9. Shazam - 4/5 Hardly a classic, but a daft, fun and family-friendly superhero film from the DC universe. It feels like a Deadpool film that you could watch with an eight year old.
  10. A quick dash around Sotenbori today: People punted into the river: 0
  11. I know I didn't make it myself, but the bento I just had on the train was the best octopus I have ever eaten, and leaves me with a delightful ceramic jar to find a use for:
  12. I had a few hours layover in Tokyo this morning, so amongst other things found myself wandering around Kabukicho, or as it is known to Yakuza fans, Kamurocho. Started in the Theatre District: Then wandered by the Millennium Tower: And past Serena and Stardust before turning left and walking to Don Quixote: And then walking up the street back around Millennium Tower: Then heading right, and ending up at a car park: At this point I was getting tired of being asked by nightclub marketeers if I fancied a blowjob from sexy girls at 9am, so I decided to leave before I got into fights that would have required me to blatter people with bicycles.
  13. The locations in Yakuza are brilliantly realised. I'll be going here soon - planning to look for underground fighting clubs.
  14. I own neither, would probably have bought neither, but look forward to shooting people in the ballz and crashing spaceships next week.
  15. Richard Matheson's The Shrinking Man. Each day you get a bit smaller. Things that were trivial become gradually more lethal. You need to plan ahead to ensure that you do not trap yourself in the future. Not sure what the goal would be, apart from survival. Perhaps just make it a high score challenge - how long can you last?
