Re: Gaming elements that annoy you.

Definitely agree with non skippable cutscenes. I remember black on the ps2 is a massive culprit of this.

Re: Today

Today I popped down to see my Mum, who asked me to check a box of books she'd found in the loft since she didn't know if they were mine or my Dad's. Opened it and didn't recognise the top layer but thought I'd check underneath anyway - which duly revealed his stash of 1980's porn mags :oops: A time...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Infinite Warfare online. I'm in the minority when I say I love it. It's not the best by a long chalk, but the amount of critism that's been levelled at it seems so unfair.

Re: The anti-what grinds your gears thread.

Spotify. Never really thought about a subscription music service but spent the summer working outdoors while in between jobs so had headphones in all day long 4 days a week and realised how good it is. I used to have a YouTube downloader on my phone so I could get music that way but just felt so fra...

Re: The anti-what grinds your gears thread.

I've got Home Alone 1 and 2 on the planner (and DVD, and VHS, and UMD) poised and ready. I haven't unleashed them yet, but when I do they'll be on every day!

The fact that im crossing another thing off my bucket list by going to see Billy Connoly next month. Front and centre block, 5th row.

Re: Your Unpopular Opinion!

I don't actually mind GBBO, there are far far worse programmes on TV. Whilst I am a fan of cake (insert Marjorie Dawes impression here) I can't do with watching people making them. And I find it crazy that this moving channel was front page news. But even so it's fairly harmless telly if your into ...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Eye In The Sky. Really good film. I'm fascinated by how an unmanned aircraft can be operated and used from the other end of the world to such devastating effect. Probably not as good as good as Good Kill.

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Leaving a job I love purely so I can have weekends off. But it's because my sons at school all week and then I work 12-15 hours on a Saturday so it's justified. I wouldnt do it for anyone else!

Surely that''s a sensible opinion. Cadburys Snacks were great.
For me the biscuit/chocolate ratio was way off with them.

This week I've been having a Workaholics binge. I'm nearly caught up now so it's a bit disappointing that I'm running out!

Re: Gigs

I think my favourite festival was Leeds 2000, some great live bands here... https://pulpwiki.net/pulpwiki/uploads/Pulp/LeedsReading2000.jpg . I was at that festival and all I remember is rain. The feeling of being wet and cold for 3 days solid will live with me forever. My first, and last 3 day fes...

Re: Which system had the best sound?

For me it's SNES all the way. The 2600 brings many nostalgic goosebumps but I just love the SNES sound.

Re: RIP <Insert celebrity>

Sad to hear about Gene Wilder. A good innings but still gutted to know a big piece of my childhood has died. I can still remember about 1987 ish when me and my dad came home and mum said she'd taped me a film while we were out. Sat and watched Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and was genuinely mesm...
