  1. Bah, well that’s a bloody shame. Oh well, time to finally buy Thimbleweed Park then!
  2. Damn, I’d forgotten that Amazon jp require a separate account, plus international fees. I’m tempted to wait too. That cover is awesome and I love physical versions. That p&p tho.. Goes to Play Asia to check stock..
  3. Oooh, nice! Edit. Actually, just noticed the physical edition isn't released till December! Bah!
  4. Have you got a link? I can’t find mention of a physical version.

    No one else excited about the Capcom side scroller bundle!? Yes I'm ridiculously pleased that AC is coming but it's a ways off. That Capcom bundle was like a bolt out of the blue. Out of everything shown Switch related, that's my most wanted.

    Burt Reynolds (1936 - 2018)

    You should also see The Longest Yard too, if you haven't already, it's a cracking film.

    Cool! That sounds like it's got a touch of substance at least. Would love it to turn out to be true.

    Who is actually providing this rumor? Don't get me wrong, I'd love a new Ridge, but I don't see any evidence for its existence, at all.

    C64 ownership at last - psu question

    Thanks guys. I think I'll grab that eBay cable before I test power it on. I'll update here with the results! Regarding the psu itself, I think I'm going to go the wall wart method. All the other solutions are too expensive at the moment. Even the Polish one will add up to £45 odd and there's some debate in the community about whether it's any good any way. Apparently it suffers from video interference.

    C64 ownership at last - psu question

    The 64 arrived and it seems in pretty good condition. I've tested the psu's 5V output and it seems ok. I think I'm gonna risk a quick turn on just to check if the computer is working as stated. Here's a thing though, I've not used a RF cable in eons! Do you have to tune the TV to a specific setting for the C64's output? I seem to remember something like that? I've an old Sony crt. Basically I'd rather not keep the computer on too long, I just wanna start it up, see if I get to a prompt, then turn it off. Therefore I'd rather not spend extra time tuning or faffing about. Can anyone help me with the actual procedure, so I know what to expect?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    I agree with a lot, well all, of the criticism here. However, I think the one overall major failing of these new Star Wars films are their lack of a strong, cohesive vision. Feige gets highlighted a lot in discussions on this subject, but it's hard not to given his merits and the franchise similarities. The guy is passionate about Marvel, he knows and understands the comics, the characters and their motivations. He also wields huge control, yet apparently will still listen and take on board suggestions and ideas. I don't believe Kennedy provides a similar touch stone, nor anyone else at a senior level, for Star Wars. Love him or hate him, Lucas provided much of Feige's merits, without sadly, the taking on board others views. I really wish we had the Lucas's and Spielberg's for that matter, pre fame and fortune. At the times in their careers when they held just enough power and responsibility to see their visions through, yet still had to listen to others.

    Top Gun: Maverick

    Plane stunts.. shit, he's doing helicopter stunts, which are far more difficult! I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he is allowed some sort of piloting of whichever plane they're using. He must already be paying his own insurance! On that plane topic, I hope they're not using F-22s or F-35s, I don't need to see bvr button pushing thank you very much. Having said that however, I'm pretty sure they will be using F-22s and F-35s!
