  1. Yeah... I thought I recalled that there was, but wasn't 100% certain.
  2. Fitting your bill perfectly - The original Knack is looked upon with a lot of disdain. i never really saw anything of that game. But I saw a "quick look" of Knack 2 a little while back. It looked to be a moderately fun platformer that was playable in Co-op. It's probably not something I'd play myself, but it would be very suitable for co-op with an 11 year old. I think the second game was a bit better received than the first. Something that is not quite what you were asking for, but could be worth considering... Is there some sort of Uncharted collection for PS4? It's not co-op - it would be something for him to play by himself. And while Nathan Drake shoots/kills a lot of bad guys, it's all pretty low impact stuff. It's mostly just a good fun, rollicking adventure. So, if your son is wanting to get into something a little more "grown up", but not too grown up, then Uncharted could be a good option. (And I'd suggest a collection of the earlier games rather than Uncharted 4. While you could just go with the fourth game, it's really the conclusion to the series, plus I simply think Uncharted 2 is a better game. FYI, I never played the first - only 2, 3 and 4)
  3. I'm the huge Star Wars fan. My wife likes the movies but isn't a massive fan. She went along with me to the midnight openings for Force Awakens and Rogue One because I wanted to go. So no coin flipping needed - she'll catch it a little later. Oh... and my wife want into labour shortly after midnight on the morning of May 3rd. I spent all day saying she had to hold out until the next day, so our daughter would be born on May 4th - Star Wars day. It was close - she made it until 11:20pm on May 3rd.
  4. The last few years, my wife and I have been going to lots of movies together. Including to the midnight opening of both Force Awakens and Rogue One. But with our 6 month daughter now, that's not an option. I'll be going to the midnight opening solo and she'll catch it a few days later while I'm home looking after our daughter.
  5. In Fellowship, my brother complained and moaned about two things in literally the first 5-10 minutes. After the second, I just turned to him and quietly said "Shut... the fuck... up". That effectively solved the problem. There was no way I was going to let him ruin the experience by moaning all the way through.
  6. I think it's clear that ending the series this season meant they had to rush or scrap plans they had for a longer run. So Sabine's Mandalorian sojourn gets cut short and whatever they may have had planned with Ahsoka gets dropped entirely.
  7. I certainly got a "Billy is gay" vibe when watching it. I guess the first, very minor thing is when Billy is basically dominating Steve on the basketball court. But then he leans over him and tells him to plant his feet next time and draw the charge. So, he does seem to be offering helpful advice. Not a smoking gun, by any means. But that's followed by them standing naked together in the shower and Billy comments on how "pretty" Steve is. Sure... he says it in a cutting way - telling him "don't worry, a pretty boy like you will be just fine" in reference to the Nancy break-up. But regardless, he's still commenting on how pretty Steve is while they're standing there together naked. None of that was enough to have me drawing the conclusion that he is gay. But it had me wondering if he might be.
  8. For another day or two. Then it becomes a significantly inferior console with better exclusives. (There's no arguing with the better exclusives)
  9. I played quite a bit of Elite late last year - so my information could be a little out of date. But... if you want to start raking in some big cash, check out the weekly "Community Goals". Land at any station and you should be able to read up on what the current week's goals are. A common one is to deliver as many units of a given commodity to a specific station. So search online for a nearby station that stocks that commodity and start ferrying it back and forth. Now, you'll be competing against ships with hundreds of tonnes of cargo capacity, so there's no chance of you achieving the top ranks of the contributors. But even the lowest tier can give rewards in the millions of credits. Another type of goal has you on even footing with everyone else in the game, though. An "exploration" goal simply had people jumping into as many systems as possible, "honking" (doing a long range scan) and then jumping to the next. Explorers complained that the goals didn't reward actually scanning planets, so it's possible they could have changed now. But, if not, equip a system wide scanner and a fuel scoop and start jumping and honking. (You need to scan different systems, so you cant just jump back and forth between two). Getting in the top tiers can easily reward you 10-20m credits. And you're on an even footing with players flying 200m credit ships.
  10. I read his initial comment as being if you want to remain 100% completely, absolutely spoiler free, then best not to watch it. So like even if you don't want to know that Finn recovers ok from his coma or see the Porgs or stuff like that. He wasn't saying there was major spoilers there that people might wish to avoid. That said... I haven't watched it yet and I'm not sure I will.
  11. Actually... I think she says it precisely after hearing the distinctive Joi "ring-tone". (The same one that earlier prompted Luv to say to K "ahhh... I see you're a customer of ours, as well".)
  12. I agree completely. And even more telling, to me, was the line of advertising blurb that floated next to the 50 ft Joi. It was something along the lines of "I'll always tell you exactly what you want to hear". So, when she's telling K she wants to be downloaded into the remote projector thing so she can go with him and when she rushes to him and says "I love you" just before the projector is smashed, are those real thoughts and feelings that show she's grown beyond her original programming, or is her program simply making her say "exactly what he wishes to hear". I'm not sure if the movie intends us to form the conclusion that she has always simply been acting according to her programming. But it at least makes us question whether or not that's the case. And when she acts "jealously" towards the prostitute replicant the morning after... is she? Or is she merely being "perfunctory". I'd need to see it again to see if there's more nuance there that I'm forgetting. But her coldness the morning after could simply be that her prostitute has served her purpose and is no longer required, so she is summarily dismissed. I'm not sure if there's any actual jealousy there.
  13. I've seen speculation which, if true, would be considered a very major spoiler...
  14. Hot Pie and... pies.
  15. That's a hard one, Liff. I think you need to be straight with her - otherwise, yeah you are (unintentionally) leading her on a bit. She probably has no idea where she stands with you right now. I think you need to tell her "hey... I really think you're great and really like being your friend. But I think I owe it to you to let you know that I'm just not looking for a relationship right now because... XYZ. Not to mention the fact that we're work colleagues." She may take it ok and be fine with just being friends/friendly. Or she may get annoyed/upset/embarrassed. But I think it would be worse for her in the long run to just be kept in the dark as to where she stands with you. So maybe there's no really good outcome here - just the least worst one.
