  1. I remember the opposite with Taz-Mania on the Mastersystem. I saved up my pocket money to buy it (pestered mum and dad to get it for me because only child) got it home and completed it in one sitting. Felt like a waste of £30 knowing I'd have to wait ages before I could get another game.

    @radiofloyd Futurama is a good shout, that episode is amazing, in fact that series was probably Futurama at its best.

    I didn't mind LOST's ending too much. The last series was mainly trolling the fans but it was at least a bit bitter sweet.

    ...never finished it off...
  5. For me the biggest issue is Thrones is a show that has always excelled at character development and world building, partially because that is what the books (for better and worse) focus on, with some grand spectical used fairly sparsely throughout a season, coupled with for the first few seasons you didn't know which characters where going to live and die so there was some genuine tension to the show. For me, beginning with season 6 and getting progressively worse, it's gone from character development to character types (ie good and evil, loyal and deciver etc) and too many fan favourite character have plot armour or just keep coming back because we like them (Bron I'm looking at you). It's also shifted to too much grand spectical that comes at the expense of good story telling, sure it's exciting at the time, but it rings a bit hallow. That all being said, I've still really enjoyed it and it was satisfying seeing big events in this season that have been hinted at for years now. For me the last episode was the worst of the season and perhaps the worst episode of GoT, I'm not angry about it but a bit disappointed. It just wasn't very interesting, and didn't really sit well with the basic principles of how the show has worked throughout its entire run. For a show that had me literally on the edge of my seat shouting at the TV, it's a shame to see it go out with a whimper.

    Was going to put this in the Thrones thread but probably makes more sense here. I've been thinking of a list of shows I've watched that have had conclusions and trying to think where GoT fits. So I think in best to worst in terms of my enjoyment and satisfaction with the conclusion: Battlestar Galactica Breaking Bad Lost Game of Thrones I'm more surprised that I've only ever watched 4 TV shows, pretty sure there is more. I'll edit as they come to me.
  7. Memes you say? Also, this take on how it should have been 10 seasons.
  8. Please, let us not comic book another thread.
  9. Would be cool if that was a Stark Foundation t-shirt.
  10. https://redd.it/bp084n Kevin Feige is doing an ama on the MCU subreddits in about 4 hours time, so might be worth a look in the morning.

    What's your....

    Fighters to a competent level, not just mashing. Seeing and listening to people like @DifferentClass and @DANGERMAN talking about fighters make me wish I was able to get better at them but it's always escaped me. Also Bethesda RPG's and Western RPG's in general. I really like the setting of Fallout, Elders Scrolls and The Witcher, but all of those games quickly move past my ability and patience.
  12. All the keys are gone for the Android beta but there are some still available for iOS.
  13. I hope they've got Shane Black in to write the script 😒
  14. I was really running with this Wesley snipes thing.
  15. I don't think I like the look or style of it. It isn't my FFVII, but I hope it's good still.
  16. Why does Barret look like and sound like a fat Wesley Snipes in Blade?

    Star Wars

    You gotta source for that, I can't seem to find one.
  18. Epic launcher exclusive
  19. @OCH whilst everything you've said is accurate, I can see what @Maf is getting at. The MCU has been a staple of the multiplex for the last 7-8 years (I would say the first Avengers is when it went huge for Marvel Studios) and whilst that popularity has sustained, Endgame does have very much a sense of finality about it. Sure, anything MCU is going to do great business for the foreseeable future, but I don't think everything will be a $billion hit, and it probably doesn't need to be. Secondly, MCU has always done a good job of working repercussion Into the following films, so people are going to expect to see that. Personally, I think we will see that and it'll pave the way for the next set of films.
  20. Not that it matters as I've seen it now, but I heard my first spoiler out in the wild today. Took Zakir to a big playground in West Brom and a girl (maybe 9ish) was shouting at the top of her voice from the top of the slide I would have been furious if I'd not already seen it.
  21. The web is dark and full of spoilers.
  22. @Blakey the one time you could have legit used gangbusters and you blew it.
