  1. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    Oooh it's certainly helped. Got to the third stage, and discovered that you're fucked if you don't have the following: A - Split second timing B - Dixie Kong Dunno if I'll give enough of a shit to complete it at this rate. The reward doesn't seem worth the effort.
  2. Netflix

    Anyone watched Happy? Meloni was on point like a post SVU-Stabler mixed with Neeson in Taken, not even Patton Oswald managed to put me off. Very weird ending though. I don't think they resolved everything.
  3. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    The last levels before the boss I died about 40 times. I can see where the "bonus" levels are but I am no way interested in trying to get them. Gave the last boss a coupla tries. Got him to "stage 2" once before giving up. The collision detection when he charges you is way off. I have no idea how Nintendo thought 2 hearts was a sufficient baseline...
  4. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

    Am I the only one who doesn't see that big of a difference apart from the Switch version is brighter?
  5. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    The thing about this is that if I wanted to do this, once I complete the game - I'll probably want to do it with Funky Kong. But that would involve playing the whole game again, something which - although the game has grown on me - I don't think I will be doing, and will as previously mentioned trading it at CEX or something.
  6. Arrested Development Season 4

    It seems to be something Netflix keep doing of late. You get about half a season of something, then 1-2 months later get weekly episodes. I dunnae get it. Your platform is primed for binge-watching, don't stretch dat shit out. I waited for over a year for the new old Yu-Gi-Oh seasons.
  7. Job woes/wins

    Well I'm back to square one. My previous employer - as I suspected they might - tanked the job offer I had gotten from the Court. Had an interview/assessment day at Co-Op for their insurance centre thing and I thought it went well, however the knockback email this morning proves otherwise. I have no interviews left in the pipeline, just applications hanging out in the ether... Fuck.
  8. Deadpool 2

    Saw it last night, much more humourous than the first
  9. Arrested Development Season 4

    I like how they censored the word plunger.
  10. Super Smash Bros. -- for Nintendo Switch! Coming 2018

    As opposed to Cloud, Dark Pit, Paluntena, Duck Hunt Duo, Ice Climbers, dem Mii things, Zero Suit Samus, Wii Fit Trainer*, who have all appeared in at least 5 GOTY award winning titles each. *I'm sure there's more.
  11. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    I was bought this for my birthday and to be honest I'm not that impressed. I agree with the review that Funky should be something that isn't locked. I hadn't played the Wii U version but am playing it normal to see what it is like. I'm hoping I can get it sent back and maybe get Hyrule Warriors instead but I fear it may be too late. Just done the second boss. Unnecessarily hard.
  12. Arrested Development Season 4

    That's one of the only things I enjoyed about the last season. It had a nice Tarratino-esque feel that characters were affected by others and no one knew.
  13. Core Pokémon RPG (Switch)

    There were about 5ish TCG sets which came out which still had the e-reader scanner things on them, which I think only gave poke-dex entries. Look at this sexy Crystal Nidoking Majestic. I still have my EON Ticket, never been used Never bothered getting an E-Reader, as you said, they bombed
  14. Funny Stuff Thread

    All work and no play means you pretend to have a seizure/stroke?!
  15. Job woes/wins

    I'm sure I remember job hunting being more fluid, have had only 2 rejections. Today marks my third agency sign up in two weeks. The first gave me more sign up forms than I've ever seen in one go. I hate it that they ask you write out your CV despite being sent it. They contacted me every day afterwards about a position at the Council- first they wanted two references, then they wanted all of them, then they wanted a personal reference, then 5 hours after giving them the details they ring me back saying they're having trouble getting in touch with her (because she works) but have since gone quiet. Despite dancing through all their hoops I think they've given up. Second I went to earlier this week at first sounded optimistic about me and the opportunities were plentiful, but towards the end of the meeting, suddenly admin jobs were "like gold dust" and they'll have a look and get back to me. Uh-huh. Third today, which I applied for about 4-5 positions through them yesterday morning. Got one interview lined up next week at the County Court, and separately to register with them and introduce me to a manager of the building behind them which seems to rent out its office rooms for meetings and shit. Let us hope thrice times be thy charm. Either way I'm going to be getting drunk at Warhammer World later playing Shadespire.
