What Film have you just watched? 2016+

I watched Rogue One again yesterday. I like it but there are small things that grate a little.

One example being how easy it was for the X-wings to take out an AT-AT when compared with the trouble they had on Hoth which comes later in the time frame.

Old Rock user new system advise

I bought a pc from Mesh in 2001. It was fine and service was good. Never dealt with them since though

What have you bought today - VOL 4

Traded in FIFA 18 for the Switch for £33. This was great as it only cost me £10 in the first place.
Used the cash to buy Super Mario Odyssey which I have hardly played as I have been playing Rocket League all weekend instead.

What Film have you just watched? 2016+

Well I went to see Star Wars at the weekend and both my son and I decided that it was better than The Force Awakens. Without talking about the plot - two things stood out for me: You can see where Disney's merchandising team have been at work. There were quite a few jokes, particularly in the first ...

What you playing at the minute?

I bought Rocket League for the Switch as its on sale at the moment (£11.28). Well what an awesome game. I have played it loads over the weekend. So simple to play yet also a lot to master to be a true great. A lot like Speedball 2 or International Superstar Soccer used to be like back in the day bef...

What TV series have you watched?

Spent the last two weeks struggling my way through Punisher. Bloody hell its slow to move along. Got very fed up listening to the whining computer guy and just wanted to punch him in the face. Its interesting how Billy Russo manages to squeeze of all manner of head shots off with his pistol but then...

Phone update - 2016

I forgot to mention that I have offloaded the S8 to the Mrs and bought an iPhone X. The facial recognition works very well and is significantly better than Samsung’s variant. Plus it works in the dark too. The size of this handset is just right and the resolution and battery is much improved over my...

That was the best Robot Wars I have ever seen. I am glad at the eventual winner too.

What have you bought today - VOL 4

Well I have dumped the S8 already and bought an iZphone X to replace it. Prefer the tighter integration in iOS as it’s annoying with Android providing one thing and Samsung putting alternatives there as well. Plus stupid things like that damn Bicby button. The face recognition on the X works really ...

58948 On Chris' recommendations I've been watching Mindhunters which I had read reviews of and didn't interest me at all but just finished the third episode and liking it so far. What I'm surprised at is that after reading about it, it's nothing like what I expected at all - the review gave this im...

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 now, or wait for S9?

OK what about the Google Pixel 2 XL?
The camera is arguably the best Android camera around and is Vanilla Android too.

Nintendo Switch

Picked up FIFA 18 for a tenner and have to say that I am kind of enjoying it. Although this is the first time I have played FIFA since about 2010 and there have been many changes!!

Still playing MK8 lots and considering getting Super Mario Odyssey too.

I have to agree John. I do like the show (despite the odd ropey CGI effect) but it just feels out of place when compared to the others.

Spoiler:
Although after last nights show we might just find out why some of the tech isn't about
