  1. Football Season 2023/24

    To be honest, I feel the same about many other laws of the game. Players getting a hand-ball called against them because the ball just happened to touch their arm even though they're facing the other way - surely that's not in the spirit of the game - the player clearly isn't trying to gain advantage in that scenario. It's the same with tackles in the box - most of the time the attacker just has to move near the defender and roll over their leg for it to be a foul. It's ridiculous. I don't know how you would change it all though, because a line has to be drawn somewhere - in your example, it is drawn a exactly at the outstretched point of his toe. For the handball example - it either touches his arm or it doesn't. It's easier to call, even if the result ends up being ridiculous.
  2. Oh Damn! I would prefer to wait until it is dubbed, but I may not be able to contain myself!
  3. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

    I suppose Pokémon is an RPG with more than 100 playable characters (150 even!), and that still works, so just choose the characters that look cool. You can always change your mind later and release them back into the wild.
  4. Netflix

    It's on my list of things to watch. It is supposed to be quite good though. It will be interesting to see what they kept or cut from the book, because that shit was strange.
  5. The Disney Thread

    Who in particular did it for you? Was it Rex Splode? It was Rex Splode, wasn't it?
  6. The Disney Thread

    I've seen up to Episode 5, and i'm still finding it a bit meh. I can't work out if you need to have seen the 90s originals or not. A lot of the time they reference something that happened, and I can't work out if it's just a very heavy-handed nod to the original, or if i'm supposed to have seen it and have missed a lot of back story. I agree the animation is a bit...static, but i'm assuming that is a choice as a homage to the original maybe? The quality of the show is even more stark given that i watched Season 2 of Invincible at the same time, and that is orders of magnitudes better in every way. Better animation, better fight scenes, better villains, better dialogue, better plot; just a far better show.
  7. Nice thought, but i've seen up to season 3, and i don't think season 4 is out yet at all anywhere.
  8. Bomb Rush Cyberpunk

    Cheers brah
  9. Bomb Rush Cyberpunk

    The thread title has a typo in it. That is all.
  10. What does this involve? Is it some sort of surgery? Or a cream?
  11. I finished Demon Slayer, well, up until the point released on Netflix. I thought there were more seasons than that - i'm left wanting more! There was something so compelling about it, i'm not sure what it was.
  12. Year of Shadow

    Does that imply that all the Earth's hedgehogs are also aliens from another planet, or is it a case of convergent evolution?

    Still plugging away at Mass Effect 2. But annoyed because last night I managed to fail a mission. I didn't realise there were any missions you could fail (and not just restart), but the Samara loyalty mission ended up with her daughter buggering off. I love the way all your decisions follow you through the game and even through to the next game, but because this one was an actual failure rather than a conscious decision, it just didn't sit right, and I've been griping about it ever since...
  14. Year of Shadow

    Sonic isn't actually a hedgehog either though, is he? I thought he was an alien that just happened to look like one.
  15. Year of Shadow

    I have no idea who Shadow is. Is he related to Sonic? A clone? An evil version from an alternate dimension?
  16. Share your favourite comedy specials

    Ah, I think you're right - that seems to be what Netflix calls them. I think it's an American term. Anyway, depends on your style of comedy, but Bill Bailey - Bewilderness was a favourite of mine growing up. Surrealist comedy with musical numbers. Ross Noble is another of my favourites. Any of his shows really. Nonsense ramblings and interactions with the crowd. I know he's a bit controversial these days, but Ricky Gervais early standup was pretty good. He knows how to tell a story and hold the audiences attention. I think "Animals" is the best.
  17. Football Season 2023/24

    Lmao, he's such a bellend. I love how he held his hands up as if to say "hey, I've done nothing wrong" while actively stomping on the dude as he lies on the floor. His reaction to the red card too:[/url]
  18. Share your favourite comedy specials

    Do you mean stand-up comedy? Or TV shows?

    It probably would look cool if the Tintin brown trousers colour didn't make it look like Lukaku was running around like Donald Duck.

    Browsing this thread is like trying to read a forum in another language.
  21. Your 2024 Gaming Diary

    I had hoped to finish another game this year, continuing my streak of 1 per month. However, Mass Effect 2 has turned out to be way better than I was expecting, and skipping all the side quests is too difficult, so it's taking me longer than the first game. The writing and quest design is head and shoulders above the first game, which make them actually enjoyable to play rather than just box ticking. Hopefully I can finish this game off soon though, as it's messing with my GPM average.
  22. good stuff thread.

    Happy birthday (of growth)!
  23. The Disney Thread

    I watched X-Men. Bit disappointed that there's only 2 episodes, for some reason I thought they'd released a whole season at once. It's ok, but since I never really watched the original and so don't have the nostalgia for it, it didn't seem amazing. Hopefully once it gets going it'll improve.
  24. Resident Evil IX

    Pokémon going open world was the worst thing that happened in 2020.
  25. Can't stop listening to this atm. Really beautiful. https://open.spotify.com/track/61Ps2sXXwiYCcyAynt81JI?si=nEb7oXZgSlWtCZRrxVI7ZQ
