  1. Enjoyed By Fair Means or Foul on the Beeb back in the day - a somewhat perplexing control system initially but quite in-depth once you got the hang of it. And onto perhaps one of the worst games ever - All-In Boxing for the Archimedes. Awful controls, uninspiring graphics and absolutely devoid of anything resembling the excitement of boxing:

    What are you playing?

    Played War Chest at my local cafe today, and it headed right up my Christmas list as a result. Great strategic game, with some elements of deck building (using tokens instead of cards) and a Duke-esque element of luck with the bag drawing aspect. It's a little on the pricier side but the components are of high quality - imagine Splendor chips but about twice the weight. It's another one of those games that sounds a lot more complicated on paper when you're going through the rules - when it clicks, it's actually quite a fast-paced game. Really looking forward to getting it into my library!

    DX-Ball 2: 20th Anniversary Edition is supposedly coming out by the end of this month!

    Prodigy

    Totally thought this was coming out next year, so was a nice surprise to see it pop up on Spotify this morning. Decided to give it the once-over on my drive in. It has all the usual components: crushing beats, huge bags of attitude, whizzy instruments and samples and pitch-shifted voices talking various degrees of gibberish. It’s a Prodigy album. But wow, I can’t remember the last time I had such a consistent buzz across the entirety of the first listen of an album. Probably my favorite part (which I assume only served to amplify the buzz) is the hints to stuff from the back catalogue - nod to Their Law there, hat-tip to One Love there, oh and that sounds a bit like the Charly cat. I would even go so far as to say I heard a whisper to What Evil Lurks in there. They seem to have managed to strip away some of the fluff that was creeping in and successfully tapped back into their roots. I had turned into the ‘I can’t believe you’ve done this’ guy by the time I arrived at work - exclaiming it repeatedly out loud as I entered the building. Consider my face melted, indeed.

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?™

    Spike really needs to front his own full band (aside from the Gimme Gimmes):
  7. Looks amazing, a little out of my budget at the moment, though!

    Best New Music of 2018

    This is more like it from Crystal Method! Can't say I have really enjoyed anything of theirs since Vegas.

    Second favourite CoLD SToRAGE track on Wipeout after Messij - Cold Comfort:
  11. Can’t say I’m too happy about it - he turned around an absolute train wreck into playoff contenders. Then has to deal with everything going on during the summer before just about managing to get a few players in on loan. If he can’t get us promoted, I don’t think there are many others that can...

    Gaming Albums

    Really enjoyed Reformation from Matt Gray last year, and was looking for more recommendations of the same ilk; remixes of - or songs influenced by - classic tracks which still manage to retain the essence of their original format. What are people's favourites? Spotify preferred, but will welcome other (legitimate) sources. I have already delved into Allister Brimble and the like, and looking forward to seeing what comes out of Project Hubbard.

    Shadow Complex is another good one, which I believe was comfortably within 10 hours.
