  1. Football Season 2019-20

    I'm still absolutely fuming. Their keeper was hugging the god damn ball against the post. Cheating t*** Apparently 7 Hawkeye cameras couldn't pick the goal up but I saw it clearly on my TV. Yeah, okay then. What a joke.
  2. Monster Hunter World (PS4)

    I've not touched the PS4 version for months. I played the Wii U version for ages and loved it. I don't know why I didn't stick with it for longer as its a great game.
  3. Final Fantasy VII Remake

    I finally finished the game last night. It absolutely blew me away. I have played the original more than enough times to know what happens. This is a completely worthy remake and I enjoyed every second of it. It has kept most of the original material to arise the nostalgia but there is so much new content to justify it being a reimagining of the story in its own right. Lots of discussion has been said about what happens, how it is only the first part and how the developer's intentions were not conveyed enough to make clear that the game was not a 1:1 remake (like for example Links Awakening) but that does not bother me. I did not follow development of the game at all (to avoid any kind of spoilers). I enjoyed that it is different but the same FFVII we know and love. Cannot wait for Part II. I am looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.
  4. Absolutely gutted I missed this. I totally forgot that they close at 10pm and i've only seen this message. Last day tomorrow...
  5. My prices have been around the 50/60 mark ALL week. Is anyone selling at a decent rate? If so, could I visit?
  6. Final Fantasy VII Remake

    I've read some reviews...apparently it is a negative that the game is different to the original. I think this is a great thing! I'm really enjoying it and loving the fact the overall it is the same story but at the same time being a completely different game. In my view, this means a remake is completely worth it. The original will always exist and will remain the fantastic game it is in its own right. Because, the remake is so different, both it and the original can exist comfortably side-by-side. The game is a retelling of the story rather than just the same game with a few little extra with nice graphics.
  7. Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Received my copy from Shopto! I was playing through Xenoblade Chronicles 2 but will shelve it temporarily (loving it though). I remember first completing FFVII in the late 90s on my brothers PS1 and wishing that a remake would be carried out before remakes and remasters became a thing with videogames. FFVII is up there as one of my favourite games and my first RPG. It's a bit surreal playing its remake. I've not yet started it. Took ages to install but now just spent the last 10 mins listening to the title screen. The nostalgia!
  8. @Cube to be on furlough is not a right for employees to exercise but rather an option for an employer to pursue in order to avoid redundancies. Therefore, the employer could commence the redundancy process should it wish to do so. This is despite, the availability of the government scheme. However, those who have over 2 years service with their employer currently have the right to bring a claim for unfair dismissal. Should she be made redundant rather than furloughed then there is an argument that the dismissal would be unfair.
  9. Some of you may know that I am a qualified lawyer specialising in employment law. Happy to help with any covid-19 related employment queries as best I can.
  10. No law for them to put staff on furlough and likewise staff can say no. However, the risk is that if staff decline then they will probably be made redundant
  11. Staff on PAYE will be eligible. So yes, small businesses are eligible. The process is called "furlough", a new term, borrowed from the US. It is a form of temporary lay off whereby the state will pay or contribute to the wages of it's citizens. In our case that is up to 80% of wages subject to a cap of £2500. You will not be at work or carrying out any work whilst on furlough. It is also subject to your agreement (you do not have to agree to it) but you do not have the right to furlough. You will be contracted to receive your full wage but your employer, if they decide to furlough you may ask you to take a 20% pay cut i.e say they cannot top up the government's 80%. If you do not accept this then the risk is that your employer may begin the redundancy process.
