    Watching this this morning, it's disgraceful and she needs to apologise for her behaviour and subsequent comments. She was legitimately and correctly penalised, and acted like a spoiled brat. She ruined the greatest moment of her opponent's career, had no respect for that or for the sport. Completely lacking in sportsmanship; she should be banned for some time, and she needs to publicly acknowledge why she was wrong before she's allowed back on a court.
  2. Patch notes: For me, the big thing is the X upgrade, so it's running 4k/60 with HDR across the board and looks beautiful. Can't speak to the multiplayer yet, but the campaign looks fantastic.
  3. Just played a bit of Halo: CE on the X. It looks absolutely stunning- almost as if this is how it was meant to look. Also, it still plays fantastically.
  4. For some reason I’m having to redownload the whole thing- 73.7 gb. I am on the preview os though so maybe that’s it? At any rate after 2 gb or so can start it then deselect the installs for bits you don’t want, or prioritise the order you want to download in- it’s surprisingly slick and seems to be working.
  5. The update is out now- for me at any rate. Downloading it now.

    Pro Cycling - Tour de France 2018

    What are the farmers protesting about? None of the reports say. I know it's happened before- is it about the TdF, or other issues?

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I grew up, like many of you, in the 90s. Just about remember Italia 90, remember the hope and devastation with Euro 96, and the anger about 98. I loved England then, and each time I thought our time was right around the corner. Then it wasn't. And each tournament they got worse, but somehow more arrogant and distant. My interest in international football, and the sport in general, waned. But this team have reignited it; I feel gutted for them. Four weeks ago I had almost no interest; now I feel this lot are they successors to the England I knew as a teenager. This might be the best it gets; I hope not, but the last few weeks have been something special for me.

    I feel slightly sick even at the thought of it. Goodness knows how the players manage!

    Both of them were deliberate headbutts, regardless of force, both should be off.

    The best moment of the last World cup was him prattling on about samba football and it being their destiny to win just before they were ugly demolished by a far superior Germany team. I think most of the audience quite enjoyed that.
  13. It's really very good. Clearly not on the scale of a proper new TW- this is still based off Attila- this has taken a lot of the streamlining from the WH games, and applied it to the historical series. Probably still a bit much on top of Battletech though! I've done the opposite, waiting on Battletech till I've done a few campaigns on this.
  14. Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia came out this week. I haven't started a new thread as it seems there may not be the interest here for multiple TW threads, but this latest one I think is really pretty good. It's set in the Anglo Saxon period- starts in the late ninth century, and focuses on the warring proto- kingdoms in Britain. Really small scale map, so in my Wessex campaign for instance I've been fighting over ownership of little villages in Norfolk, whilst battling off Viking raids on the south coast. It also has taken some CK2 cues in terms of events, family politicking etc without being as heavy going as that can be. Also, it's quite streamlined compared to some of the previous TW games. Anyone else taken a look at it?
