    Video Games: Keanu Re3ves Is Breathtaking

    I asked my brother about Bioware and he visibly shuddered.

    Video Games: Keanu Re3ves Is Breathtaking

    Yeah, man. I totally love what they've done since the shambles of R2 & Attila. Warhammer is freaking awesome! It's my second favourite game. The makers of my absolute favourite title in the history of gaming invited me and a couple of other power users up to their studios today. After signing two NDAs, I can't say who it was, or even which town I was in, but what I can say is that after thirty years working in an environment where if you don't treat your customers extremely fucking well you won't have customers for very long, gaming companies have an awful lot to learn.

    Doing some research on the ethics and increasingly poor business practices of video game companies, and how this affects the relationship with their customers communities. Creative Assembly seem a good example of turning the nightmare of launches like Rome II and Attila into the triumph that is the TotalWarhammer Series. Any other heroes or villains?

    How to battle pickyness

    Blubbing just because you can't make up your mind about which book to read next is pretty fucking childish, if you ask me. See also coming on a public messageboard to complain about your indecisiveness then whining when people try to give you advice. Makes you look ridonculous. EDIT: Of course, if you're like, 12 or 13, scratch all of the above.

    Grow the fuck up would be my advice.

    Football: 'Let's talk about six, baby'

    I'd sell Auba to get Zaha. No hesitation. Having Lacazette as the undisputed first choice striker will reap massive dividends. I was almost as frustrated as he was with the amount of times he was subbed last season. Aubamayeng might have got a share of the golden boot last year, but he misses too many chances, and he can't really do anything other than score. His all round play is somewhat underwhelming.
  8. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there's yet another twist. You can be sure there's at least one ginormous skeleton locked in Johnson's cupboard, just waiting to be freed.
  9. His BBC interview was an absolute car crash. On Brexit, he hasn't got anything other than more unicorns. Utterly useless. And I'm sorry, but anyone expecting to become Prime Minister must be prepared for a forensic character examination. That includes how you treat your wife/girlfriends/mistresses, but more importantly, your children. Johnson refuses to say how many children he has fathered. Current estimates seem to be around 4 to 6, but nobody can say for sure.
  10. If you don't mind me asking, what rank is that?
  11. I just read that article again, and it basically blames the senior officers for allowing this culture of corruption to develop. As BFC frequently enjoys reminding us that he is a Senior Police Officer, I'd be interested to know what he has done, personally, to combat this.
  12. The rot probably began with Thatcher. She turned the police into a thuggish tool of state. Oppression and corruption ftw. Thank fuck they don't have guns.
  13. I'm sure it comes as no surpirse to anyone to hear that Johnson has, once again, been caught in a lie. On suggestions that he was working closely with Steve Bannon, he said, in April, "As for the so-called association with Steve Bannon, I am afraid this is a lefty delusion whose spores continue to breed in the Twittersphere." Turns out Bannon helped write Johnson's resignation speech from the Foreign Office last year.
  14. ...see also throwing furniture around and punching holes in walls. That kind of shit is terrifying to most people.
