What TV series have you watched?

Reasonable enough start to the series for Robot Wars, I was sorry to see Apollo go out so soon but pleased to see Behemoth get through. Apollo looked extremely difficult to drive as it seemed very twitchy and difficult to turn compared to their previous robot which didn't look that easy to drive...

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

You definitely need to watch the first one before seeing 2049 as it's not just a film set in the same universe, it very much follows on from the story of the first. I watched Wonderwoman and even with low expectations thought it was a poor film as it's long and not that much really happens, when it ...

What TV series have you watched?

With no rule changes I'd be surprised if the spinners aren't on top again, I think it was the Tornado team that said one of the reasons they weren't coming back is because designs like theirs didn't scale up whereas it's clearly suited the spinners very well. I can't really see any other design that...

Thanks for that, I'd no idea Robot Wars was back already. There doesn't seem to be any rule changes to help the robots that are not spinners but they've changed the format so it's six robots now and less chance of a robot going out for bad luck:

What you playing at the minute?

After picking up the Switch to play Stardew Valley and MK8 I felt perhaps it was a mistake given I'd played both games a ton particularly when i started up a fresh new farm in Stardew Valley and was starting from scratch and had to do everything again. Then those feelings quickly faded as I got into...

What have you bought today - VOL 4

I caved in and bought a new mudguard for my fat bike which has been running on half a mudguard after the last endurance race wrecked the mounting, it finally fell apart a couple of weeks ago and been getting covered in mud since then. The one I've gone for is a more expensive one but it cable ties o...

BBC have an excellent documentary on the Concorde I'd recommend: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b096n3rw/concorde-a-supersonic-story?suggid=b096n3rw I've been to see the one in the Duxford museum and it's still such a beautiful plane , it's quite sad seeing the group of Concordes sitting toge...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog,

Did you get a new bike in the end? What have you done to your back?

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

While flicking through Sky Cinema curiosity got the better of me and I put on the last Resident Evil film which as expected was pretty awful. Some of the ideas and set designs were pretty good but it struggles to balance the silliness of the games and the live cast in the film, Ian Glen (Jorah Mormo...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog, I got very handy with quicklinks on the fat bike which for some reason kept breaking its chain (a KMC one) although after trashing it completely on a 24 hour event, I didn't hesitate to replace it. Although I have plenty 10 speed quicklinks, I haven't bought any 11-speed ones despite two ...

Nintendo Switch

Not really, I'd always planned to get a Switch at some point when there was something I wanted to play on it as I liked the Wii U. I'd certainly like to get back onto Destiny but I can't see the game changing, many of the D2 changes I dislike are intentional design choices to change the focus of the...

Nintendo Switch

Well the lure of Stardew Valley was too much and now have a Switch with that and Mk8, seems a bit daft on one hand to get a console with two games I already have but on the other hand I cancelled the Xbox One order (thought I had a faulty Xbox, was just the power supply) and this gives me more than ...

What you playing at the minute?

I did manage to get a vault of glass raid done last night and while it is tempting to do a level 390 version where it's a challenge again, I was reminded of the pain of using LFG and don't want to go back there. I think I'm done with Titanfall 2 as I've finished levelling the sniper titan and the of...

58874 Watched Bladreunner 2049 last night. The sound was great and matched the original very well. The visuals were good too but the ground level city scenes lacked the feel that the original film had. In fact I preferred this aspect in the original. Overall I enjoyed it but it felt empty and seeme...

I assume that's where your username comes from? I'm just watching the original film at the moment on HD DVD which took some convincing from my Xbox HD DVD drive but seems to be going fine now, hoping to see the sequel some time this week. I thought it was a terrible idea and hadn't paid any attentio...
