  1. The thing about St Anger, is that while horribly produced, it is actually decent when paired with the documentary Some Kind of Monster. The story behind the album is better than the album as it were. Granted that doesn't make it any less unpleasant on the ears, but as a product of the band and where they were at that time it's a decent little time capsule. Same with Justice, and all the no bass stuff. *Edit* The documentary was called some kind of monster, not St Anger. I should know that considering the DVD is in the shelf in front of me!
  2. Same here. “The Nasties”, took me quite by surprise. I had a proper, snorty, real laugh at that one.
  3. Today I’ve made a pineapple cake with more than a dash of dark rum.
  4. Excellent! Glad it worked out.
  5. Certainly. It’s all a bit “ish”, but you’ll get the idea. Line a loaf tin, about *mimes loaf with hands* this size. For the cake. 225g unsalted butter 225g caster sugar 225g self raising flour 4 eggs Zest of one lemon Small pinch of salt For the gooey lemonyness in the cake Juice of 2 lemons 110g (ish) of caster sugar. For the optional drizzle icing. Zest and juice of one lemon and enough icing sugar to make a glaze (about 100g iirc) Beat the butter and flour together until it’s fluffly. Add the eggs 1 at a time. Sift in the flour. When combined, mix in the salt and zest. Pop it in the tin and put it in the oven 180C ish For 45 minutes ish. Check the middle with a knife, when it’s clean it’s done. Mix the lemon juice and caster sugar together (make sure the sugar has dissolved). PRICK! the cake with a fork all over and drizzle over the cake. Leave it in the tin until nearly cooled. When cool enough, take it out the tin and pop it on a plate. Mix the zest, and juice of one lemon with enough icing sugar to make a glaze and plop it on the middle of the cake, it’ll run all over it and look a bit like a bukkake vid. Then simply pop the kettle on and eat it all in one sitting.
  6. Last night’s dinner. Bacon and asparagus pappardelle. Followed by by lemon drizzle cake and a gallon of coffee. We finished the cake for lunch. I’m now having cake regret. Might have a pepperami until it blows over. Lockdown eating is tremendous.
  7. I’ve always enjoyed the silliness of Resident Evil, the dafter the better as far as I’m concerned. There’s a plethora of serious action games out there. But I appreciate that’s not for everyone. Either way more Resident Evil is usually a good thing so I look forward to this.
  8. Dino Crisis 2 was good, as you say a lot more action orientated. It had a mode after completion that was basically the forefather of Mercs mode in resident evil.
  9. You’re in for a real treat. It’s a blast from start to finish. It’s not traditional Resi, but it’s still Undeniably a Resident Evil game. You’ll love it I’m sure, think of it like an action move spin off if it helps.
  10. I’m sure that’s the plan. Complete, global, saturation. As it were.
  11. A new Silent Hill would be amazing. Wandering around the empty streets. Homes locked up from the outside menace, deserted schools. The only things out are angry, seemingly over-caffeinated nurses wanting to stop our protagonist, the one muppet that thinks it’s a good idea to still go out. I wonder how that would look.
  12. Analogue copies of this are back up for sale, for those of you who (like me) missed out when the apocalypse shut WHSmiths. https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/gaming/edge-magazine-back-issues/edge-may-2020-issue-344/
  13. I quite like it. From a design perspective it’s amazing how they’ve made the front of the controller look like the back of a controller.
  14. @Kevvy Metal pretty much nailed it. 5 is brilliant. But in anything other than Normal mode you get cobbled at the Jill/Wesker fight as it’s pretty much impossible in SP. In coop it’s a hoot though. I enjoyed 6, but it’s bonkers.
  15. There’s some good stuff in the sale actually. Those who are yet to play Titanfall 2, it’s now less than 4 quid, and it’s fantastic, so that has to be my recommendation. I’ve nabbed Doom 3 and Deus Ex too as they were pennies.
  16. Zel... bah! Super ma.. Gah! Resident evi... FFS! I’m going with a Half Life 2.
  17. HL2 is a 10 today, let alone when it was released 37 years ago.
  18. Well I downloaded the Resistance beta (Xbox) and couldn’t get a game at all. It wouldn’t load anything other than an error message. The intro vid was good though. It seems you play either a trapped teen or Dr Claw from Inspector Gadget. I may try again later tonight if any one fancies giving it a go. (jimmbob)
  19. Nah wait for it to drop. They need to learn that they can’t keep diluting the Half Life universe like this, I mean Christ, the last one only came out 13 years ago. Hit them in the wallet, it’s the only way they’ll pay attention.
  20. They’ve apparently sold out of acoustic copies. Only digital available at the moment unfortunately.
  21. The demo of this is brilliant. The aiming seems rather sensitive though. Maybe that’s the point. Either way Big Nemmy wasn’t the most nimble of cats in the original, this time he’s like Sonic the bastard Hedgehog! I love it, and I dread meeting the huge swine at every turn. Just like the RE2 remake I imagine I will love playing the game and hate playing it (due to constant nervousness) in equal measure.
  22. Damn I wish I could play this. I don’t have a gaming PC. Nor can I afford one. The Half Life series is my all time favourite, I’m loving reading the impressions in here though, it looks fantastic. Hopefully after the lockdown I will have some spare cash to get all rigged up. *Narrator* “He won’t”. Some of the videos are amazing, the way it all just works, it’s Valve all over, just fantastic stuff. My point is, I’m delighted those that are playing this are enjoying it, and I’m genuinely loving reading your impressions. But simultaneously go fuck yourselves.

    I did this the other day. First one of 2020. Couldn’t find anything I wanted to draw tbh...
