  1. Was watching the newest episode and right at the end this thread is discussed. We made it I guess!
  2. I was watching this video which featured some Super Mario Odyssey concept art and I know I've seen the stuff before but was struck by how much I like it. It taps into the kind of things I like (bold colours, simple shapes, stylistic design etc) so thought why not make a thread where we share some concept art we enjoy.
  3. N-Europe featured on Did You Know Gaming

    I did WhatsApp him a picture actually to tell him he is famous. I think it's gone to his head.
  4. Ghost Trick

    It is a fantastic game. The animation is worth that price alone.
  5. If you're that curious about if you can touch your toes rest your hands on your thighs and slide them down your legs (as you bend forward obviously) until you reach a pain point. It's a bit more controlled. But I'd still say when it comes to your back its best to be over cautious because if you fuck that up you really fuck it up. Maybe even give yourself a week away from the gym.
  6. Netflix

    Ironically one of the few shows I still watch on there. But I'm mostly using it to rewatch shows than anything they put out lately so I'm figuring out what I what to do. The easy option is to buy them on something like Prime but that could still be removed. But it seems I'm not affected by this anyway. My mom and nan had access but I think my mom got her own and my nan has now passed away anyway. Just feel like there's no real value in Netflix now.
  7. It's a wonderful film. Got my niece into it so when my mom and I went to Hawaii recently we had to tell her Stitch was on holiday to stop her asking to join. But it does have a really nice message about made family. And I found out recently there's a manga where Stitch lands in fuedal Japan and I need to read that.
  8. Finally got round to creating this thread. Best to use this going forward rather than using the threads specific to the directs (which are linked below). Release dates: UK/USA - 7th April 2023 Japan - April 28th 2023 Peacock - 45-70 days after release Netflix - October 2023 apparently Promotional materials: Related threads: Direct Thread One Direct Thread Two
  9. I can understand enjoying it as an adaptation of a game franchise that manages to capture the sense of fun and all the references. However, as a film it is absolutely poor. The narrative is bare bones, characters are pretty flat and the only one that has any kind of emotional development is - weirdly - DK. Even Mario doesn't have one because he starts the film acrobatic, heroic and caring for others. All that changes is his location and the fact that gives him powers. It's not like I expected some kind of narrative masterclass, but the film absolutely deserves criticism as a film. I think it's why critics were divided because if you're critiquing it as a film (as opposed to a much enjoyed game franchise) it doesn't hold up. Even with the common misguided write off that it's "for kids" (as if they can't appreciate a good narrative).
  10. Not watching but just seen this and that's unexpected
  11. You can't really "quickly" recover from something, you can just mitigate making it worse and doing things to help ease the pain. I'm by no means an expert so look into it but my first instinct would be heat (bath, sauna etc) and light stretching, preferably when your body is warm so it's looser. Obviously don't try and touch your toes, but just some light movement in all directions to get your lower back moving. Maybe even an osteopath if you're concerned.
  12. Old NE Members

    I'm over 20 years here. I started just before Super Mario Sunshine came out so it's easy to place it for me.
  13. Old NE Members

    He's in our hearts, but no idea what happened to him
  14. Mortal Kombat 1 (19th September 2023)

    I know it's always been the franchise's thing but something about seeing those violent deaths in realistic graphics is just off-putting to me
  15. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

    Daily Mail readers presumably based on this out of context quote
  16. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    Ah okay. So if you skipped over a move and the Pokémon never learnt it, it would be able to "re"learn it?
  17. Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet

    I'm now weirdly curious does that mean it will allow you to learn moves your Pokémon has known, or relearn moves that the Pokémon could have known (i.e. the Pokémon's total moveset). Mostly because I'm curious if the game keeps track of moves you dropped. I always assumed if you overwrote a move it just dropped it from internal memory.
  18. What Have You Bought?

    Back (essentially) by popular demand. However, remember some purchases can warrant their own thread. Don't be afraid to make new threads and all that! Along those lines we may thrip from time to time.
  19. PAC-MAN 99 (April 2021 - October 2023)

    The service is ending October 8th
  20. Happy birthday!!
