    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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Hitman Blood Money now on BC! Haven't played this in ages, will be great to go back to it.

    The iOS gaming thread

    I think so. Obviously touch controls aren’t the greatest, especially for the 3D games & I haven’t actually tried the version of jade empire. I have played through the BG games though and they work well- the main downside being the need to hunt for click spots sometimes; and the fact that they’re very much 90s pc games.

    The iOS gaming thread

    There's the infinity engine games, Baldurs gate 1 & 2 as well as planescape torment which have good versions and last ages. Kotor and Jade empire too.

    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I really wish they’d find a way to have Bakalar in more of the content. He’s so much a part of GBE, it’s strange when these podcasts come around and he’s not involved. A shame they can’t find a way to have him more formally involved.

    The iOS gaming thread

    Yes, but if it is the actual full game, that's the same as the full price PC game. Whether it sells at that price is another question, but I'm personally more excited for this than I have been for any other iOS game. It's perfect for bed/ plane/ quick few turns etc. Remains to be seen if it works in the endgame though.

    Fallout 4 - VR Coming Soon

    Only had a brief go on it on the Vive this morning before work, but it seemed fine. No obvious excessive blurriness to my eyes, but I don't expect that much from VR graphics really. Menus did seem a bit of a pain. Seemed to run well, and I did get a bit awestruck by the thought of the whole world being out there to explore; I felt a real sense of immersion in the setting even though I've played through it before. Disappointing to hear that weapon scopes aren't working yet though.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole

    So I've just ordered this on Xbox going to get stick of truth with the order, as the store promised. However, Stick of Truth doesn't appear in my "ready to install" section. The store just says not currently available when I manually search for it. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can trigger the Stick of Truth download?
