  1. Hello everyone!

    First time posting in a while.

    I got both the PS5 and Series X. But I'm so busy that the reason I got the PS5, outstanding single player and Street Fighter, has been limited Street Fighter, and games I can play without thinking about anything on the Xbox (Forza, FIFA, Street Fighter 30th anniversary). 

    After the hellish school year that awaits me concludes, and I've got my dissertation for my MSc done, then I'll get stuck into these games. Or another Interpol tour. One or the other.

    Anybody want to play some Street Fighter V on the Xbox or piss around on Forza Coreinho is the tag on both

  2. An increasingly rare foray into the forums...

    I've got both the PS5 and Series X. However, the only true Next Gen game I've played is Astros playground, which has BY FAR the best original soundtrack I've heard in years, and probably the best I've ever heard outside of Halo and Street Fighter. Whoever did this should by rights be headlining stages at festivals, it's amazing. 

    Anyway, I've just been using the PS5 to play PS4 games- started The Last of Us, but lots of SF5 and for F1 2020. On the Xbox, Fallout 76 seems to work reasonably well on it, and lots of MCC and Halo 5. Bits and bobs of other games as well. 

  3. I very rarely come on the board anymore, but I thought I'd come back to announce my defection to PS. 

    Xbox exclusives look very unimpressive and I couldn't give a flying fuck about playing games anywhere other than my front room. So I've got a Uni assignment due on 14th December, three weeks off work for Xmas, and I can't come back home. 

    That's me, a PS5, and *hopefully* The Last of Us 1 &2, Street Fighter and maybe the Uncharted Collection. On my big new 65" UHD 4K all singing all dancing TV.

    I will get a new Xbox as well, there's too many games that I want to play upscaled, and I'm not losing hundreds of hours of Borderlands, but for now... 

    Also, I got my mini SNES on my new TV. It looks fucking so out of place. hahah

  4. Can you not just blag it? 

    Two years ago I straight up went into my bosses office and said "Can i please leave two days early to go to Glastonbury?" He was fine with it. 

    Now admittedly, this was an international school at the end of term. 

    Are you back in work on the Monday? If so, fuck that. 

  5. JR is a commentator. 

    You can have commentators for years and years, if they are good/legendary. ITV kept Murray Walker when they got Formula One, even though he was 73/4 at the time. And they would've gladly kept him for years if he wanted to carry on- even if he was starting to lose it at the end. In fact, sticking with the F1 example, I am convinced people disliked James Allen doing the F1 commentary because he wasn't Murray Walker. Same way people gave Michael Cole heat for years. 

    Also, think about what commentators people are fond of today. It's the old ones mostly, or the ones who have been there for years. It's also the one's people can name.

    ITV Football? Clive Tyldsley. Sky Football: Martin Tyler. Cricket: Richie Benaud (and he's been dead for ages!), F1: Murray Walker or Martin Brundle . Golf: Peter Alliss. Darts: Sid Waddell (and he's been dead for years as well) etc etc.

    People like familiarity in their broadcasters. 

  6. The announcing has been atrocious on all levels the last few months. 

    I still like Mauro, and Nigel McGuinness is exceptional. But they don't use the best announcer they've had in years, which is William Regal. I can see why, but still. 

  7. You won't get it in because if it's a good Shisha pipe it'll be glass at the bottom. And they don't let glass on the site lest you, or anyone, smashes it over someones head. 

    There are shisha places at the festival though. 

    Edit: Looked at pic. It's glass. Not a chance. 

  8. There's a massive difference between filming 10 episodes and actually airing them. Not to mention airing them in a decent timeslot. 

    Also, don't forget. ITV ruins everything.

    I thought it was a great Mania up until the last hour. 

    Seth’s entrance was BAD ASS. I loved the contact lenses. 

    Jinder winning is your yearly reminder that Vince doesn’t give a damn what you want (how dare they do that to Rusev on Rusev Day!) 

    Ronda’s match was hugely entertaining and stole the night to me. She’s going to be just fine, isn’t she? She is a star. 

    How totally and utterly pointless Cena vs. Undertaker was.  

    Daniel Bryan’s return was incredible, the pop, the chants, it was amazing. That’s your guy. 

    Total waste of Asuka’s streak and I didn’t see Nakamura’s heel turn coming but I dug it. He needs a mouth piece for sure, though. 

    Nicholas :mellow:

    THAT MAIN EVENT. That main event was the single worst main event I can remember. The crowd shat all over it. They did not want to see that match and made it totally clear through their apathy. I think that was an audible on the night to have Brock retain. Just a shite match. The same moves over and over and over. The blood with Reigns was not needed (he was bleeding so profusely). Why repeat that Randy spot? It’s so dangerous. I would have rather Reigns won than Brock continuing to hold the title hostage. I am so sick of Brock Lesnar. WTF happens going forward now? 


    See what happens on Raw tonight. Lashley is back at some point. 

    I think Brock is under contract a while longer, although I know what everyone says, that he's done after Mania. But that's too obvious. As far as we're aware he's not in the USADA testing pool, so he can't come back and fight immediately anyway. I think they do Brock v Bobby, it's a semi-intriguing fresh matchup (UFC should've tried to book it. Amazed they didn't, especially after the Zuffa sale). 

    When a ten-year old boy shows better facials than your most pushed babyface, you know you're fucked. Reigns has to go away for a while, he's dangerously overexposed and has been for ages and ages, and finally come back and cut a promo on the fans. 

  10. Who is staying up for Rusevmania on this most Rusev of all days?

    Just do the main show

    Roman- not with the heel turn though because...

    Sami and Kevin with Shane turning heel






    Kurt and Ronda

    Hogan’s gonna be Strowman’s partner lol

    25th Anniversary of Hogan getting screwed out of the tag belts at Mania 9...

  12. Can't see a thread on this.

    Looking to go to two days of Dour Fest. Thursday has BadBadNotGood and The Chemical Brothers, and Friday has Slowdive, Mogwai and Soulwax. 

    Anyone know what the situation is like with transport each night and what not after the event? Can't camp and have to be in Brussels very early Saturday morning to get to Rock Werchter Classic. 

  13. Lawrence Taylor headlined Mania in his first match and was respectable. 

    Floyd Mayweather had a great match with Big Show in his only ever match.

    There are ways it can be done. 

  14. Enzo has also been released amid allegations of being a massive pain in the arse.

    Surely the rape story is the last straw? Alienated backstage, very much lived his gimmick and not in a good way, and now this? A case where the accuser has put the details all over twitter, seriously damaging the case. (I'm not saying he's innocent or guilty, just that due process isn't taking place) 

    Rich Swann is 'only' indefinitley suspended, after all.

  15. I'm going to get Far Cry 5 as it looks incredible. After the shit which was Primal this should be back to normal. 

    The one game I am getting, which won't surprise anyone who posted on the board eight or so years ago, is the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Which might be a shameless cash in, but holy fuck. I love Street Fighter. 

    I was playing SSF2 Turbo on an Arcade machine over Xmas, and to a certain extent, I still have 'it'. So I might have to get a PS4 for SFV as well.
