    Major League Baseball

    MLB’s always been terrible at punishing that kind of cheating. Didn’t the Red Sox get away with something similar a few years ago?

    The Brewers just hooked their starter Miley after 5 pitches in which he gave up one walk. Apparantly it’s tactical but I’ve never seen that before.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I accidentally killed a timed quest giver and failed the quest because I didn't realise grain stores explode when you set fire to them and she was killed in the blast. Ben on the Bombcast also mentioned someone taking 36 hours to get to level 20 and how the game does not respect players time. I've no idea how it took that person so long, I've at level 21 after 24 hours doing a mix of exploration, story and side quests.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I dropped the difficulty to Easy for that fight and used a combination of poison blade, Spartan kick and plenty of dodging to beat him. To stop him healing chase after him when he runs away because as soon as he starts resting that’s when he heals.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Silverstone will be on free to air so it’s only 20 race weekends you’ll need to pay for. Hopefully Sky will do another offer like this year where it was £160 for a 9 month pass.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - The next Edge 10

    Smyths have it for £45 if you preorder for instore collection. Sadly the days of supermarket price wars for games are long gone so I doubt you’ll find it anywhere else cheaper than that. https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/video-games-and-tablets/new-games-coming-soon/coming-soon-playstation-4/red-dead-redemption-2-ps4/p/155755

    Football Thread 2018/19

    Peter Brackley has died https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/45858837 As someone without Sky who mostly watched live football on Football Italia this is a huge loss, he really was the voice of football for me when I was a teenager.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I think I'm going to slow down my playthrough. I loved all of the time I spent with Origins and its DLC but this is too much. I'm 21 hours in and have reached Level 20, I've barely uncovered a third of the map and despite the impression the game gives you that Kassandra has godlike powers she feels a lot weaker than Bayek ever did. Forts are also a lot more difficult because some have more than one gold crowned enemy patrolling them which makes clearing them out a lot more difficult especially when a level 27 mercenary shows up and joins the fight when you don't have enough money to pay off the bounty. which makes life a lot more difficult. I do miss the smaller moments that Origins had like finding letters and notes in buildings that have gave you a bit more backstory and Egypt was a lot easier to traverse that mountainous Greece but I can see why people might be turned off by how much the game throws at you.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    I think it's because the Nations League is exclusively on Sky instead of ITV which has contributed to the lack of interest. I don't have Sky and England are not something I'll make a special effort to watch so I'm happy having a football free weekend and watching the highlights if anything interesting happens on YouTube.
  10. Where to Watch (UK). Subsciption WRC+ Pay TV Some Live Stages and Daily Highlights Show on BT Sport Free VERY Brief Highlights on YouTube I used to love rallying back in the late 90s early 00s with McRae, Makkinen, Burns and Sainz battling it out but then a combination of Burns tragic death, McRae retiring the the complete dominance of Loed meant I lost interest in the late 2000s around the same time Subaru quit because of the financial crisis. This was at the same time as the coverage moved from the BBC to Channel 4 and then I don't know where it went after that but for a few years I don't think it was on tv at all. Since I got BT Sport a few years back I've started to get back into it. I caught the tail end of the VW Polo's domination but since they quit because they needed the money to pay off some diesel related lawsuits it's actually been nice and competitive with lots of different drivers winning events and new talent like Tanak coming through. I still wish the cars were closer to their road going version and actually desirable. I know this will never happen again due to safety but they can at least make them nice to look at. I mean look at the Citroen DS3 WRC, that has to be the ugliest rally car ever to compete. They are seem to be a lot more fragile as well. One minor impact and they're out of the race. You are never going to see something like this again. Anyone else still watch it? I still think Ogier will win this season because Neuville is making too many small errors that he is unable to recover from as well as Ogier. It's a shame Tanak wrecked his cooling on a rock for the second time this season because he was making a great late charge for the title but it'll take something special for him to win it now. Also Kris Meeke has somehow got another competitive drive, he's going to be with Toyota next season https://www.autosport.com/wrc/news/139286/meeke-secures-toyota-seat-for-2019-wrc-return I cannot see him changing his driving style to avoid crashing quite so often but this really is his last chance I just hope he makes the most of it. Personally I'd rather have some new talent in what should be a competitive car but hopefully he'll prove me wrong.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    I'm probably going to get used to it but I don't like Hold Triangle to Assassinate. Whenever the icon appears I keep pressing it too early which results in nothing happening and the guard alerting others before I sort myself out. I much press tap Triangle that Origins used especially when you cannot clear camps out as easily as you can in that game.

    Disgaea Hour Of Darkness

    My LE arrived as well. I'm having buyers remorse because it really isn't worth what I paid for it but after playing the DS port for 85 hours and not finishing it I'm hoping I manage it this time. I also have all of the other Disgaea LEs so at least it'll have company in the box I pack it up in never to be looked at again.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    He's been going for over a year now so at this point his Patreons know what they signed up for. It is a bit of a vague premise but I really enjoyed his Brazil videos and I'm looking forward to the Balkans ones when they come out. I don't back anyone on Patreon yet, I got burned supporting the Area5 Kickstarter that took so long to appear I don't think I even watched the videos when they were done.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Simone di Silverstro who has raced Champ Cars, Indycars, Formula E, an F1 test with Sauber and is now a full time Nissan driver in Australian Supercars essentially became a journeyman because the drives weren't there and didn't even end up on DTM or WEC like most nearly F1 drivers. I think Formula W is a waste of time especially if it doesn't earn them Super License points but I think someone like Red Bull will need a woman in their young driver program for them to break through.
  15. I haven’t bought it yet mostly because of the price and Before The Storm dropped in price very quickly after release. I wonder if it being a slow burn sales wise is expected, I didn’t get into the first game until Episode 4 had been released and this game has also come out at the same time as FIFA, Tomb Raider and Assassins Creed which cannot have helped.
