  1. Saw the trailer for I Want To Eat Your Pancreas.

    It looks like it could be a good dramatic film, it's just that title...

    1. Celestia


      Good luck to the marketing team

    2. Polkadi~♪


      That's what happens when you try to translate a saying that we don't use in English.

      It's heartfelt in it's original Japanese, but weeeiiiiird in English.

  2. Daleks Invasion of Earth.

    Bit rough in a few places, but still very tense and much better than the film adaptation.

  3. Has negative reaction towards Godot always been as prominent as I’ve seen or has it been building up over the years since T&T released?

    1. JosepHenry


      Eh, I thought I'm the only one who didn't like him. Everyone else loves him for some reason.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      I like Godot, but I can kind of get why others don't like him. He's by far one of the more condescending prosecutors while always hiding behind a facade of calmness and like Franziska before him, the over the top aspects are boosted on him.

      Edgeworth I felt always worked best because he still remained the antithesis of Phoenix. He was still the straight guy in a world full of crazy and reacted as such, especially with Wendy Oldbag and the like, and then you've got Franziska who literally whips everyone and everything whilst getting away with it, and Godot who has his whole coffee shtick. They're still good characters IMO but you can tell they lost the only sane man aspect of Edgeworth and took up some of the world's resident craziness. 

  4. Watching The Dalek Invasion of Earth

      Get those earplugs ready otherwise Susan’s screams might rupture your eardrums.

    2. AlphaRuby


      BTW, have you seen the film adaptation?

    3. Speederino


      The Peter Cushing thing? Nope.

    4. AlphaRuby


      It’s...rather silly, I’ll put it that way 

  5. Good to see that England got payback against the USA in football tonight :) 

  6. Who's seeing the new Pokemon film (the animated one) in cinemas?

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      *raises hand*

      I love having Pokemon movies in theaters again. Even if I have to go see 'em by myself.

    2. Failinhearts


      I might be, yeah.

  7. There's been no mention of your avatar character ever paying their taxes, so I've called the tax collector on them all

    1. Dejimon11


      It's fine nobody has a Yoshi avatar

    2. Forte-Metallix




      "TRY ME."

      Incineroar is not amused.

  8. Up til a year ago, I didn't even know Gorillaz had a canon backstory, and I'm from the country that created them...

  9. https://m.uk.ign.com/articles/2018/11/14/thq-nordic-has-35-unannounced-games-in-development

    Did THQ Nordic find buried treasure of gold and platinum?

    How else are they buying studios yet still funding their games?

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      They just bought Bugbear (original Flatout developers) and Coffee Stain (Goat Simulator) today as well!

      That's what I wonder myself... The few things that they have brought out post name change don't seem to sell or make as many companies, ironically when they were just Nordic Games they did bring some original games such as Deadfall Adventures. Darksiders 3 is their first big game and its shakey...

      They have rights to a lot of games too but haven't seen much apart from Darksiders, Legend of Kay, de Blob (not many copies either) and I think Red Faction Guerilla got a PC remaster.

      At this rate gaming that isn't an AAA studio or an existing 1st party is either going to be owned by THQ Nordic or Microsoft, the latter bought Obsidian and InXile recently.

    2. Thigolf


      As far as I know, the owner of THQ Nordic is a billionaire who gets his main income from something else and just buys all this stuff because he can. He's probably satisfied as long as he's not stumbling in the red for too long/his other businesses make enough to make up for potential losses.

  10. Does anyone know if Japanese PS1’s will work on modern TV’s here in the UK?

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      It might be TV dependant like most older consoles. It really depends whether it can output in 240p/480i/576i, some modern TVs just can't regardless of console and where it comes from. It SHOULD be able to display in 60hz so the issue of black & white/rolling picture wouldn't be an issue unlike the past as HDTVs are more standardised (with the exception that non-PAL countries don't have 50hz included).

      If it doesn't, you might have to get a Framemeister or similar upscaler such the OSSC and the former is pretty pricey.

      One big issue is that Japanese TVs have a D-Terminal connection that don't exist for TVs outside of Japan but for the PS1 it isn't an issue.

    2. AlphaRuby


      My HDTV has AV cable support (via plugging in the 3 coloured cables into a slot)

      Would that be OK?

    Wow, when Series of Unfortunate Events Season 3 was set for “early 2019”, they meant early

  13. With trade-in credit and a huge PSN sale, I got the digital versions of Danganronpa 1/2 and Ultra Despair Girls on PS4 for zilch

  14. Sorry, but the owners of your favourite franchise haven't enough money in the coffers, so they had to demote the lead character to cook.

    1. DanJ86



      Already happened, dude. XD

    2. Kiah



      Get ready for nothing but chili dogs...to the surprise of no one 😋

    3. Perkilator



      At least now Sora can start making his own dinner when he finishes up training.

    4. Ellipsis-Ultima


      A lawyer can bake stuff.

      ...does that count.

  15. Having a good time in Liverpool :)
