Bit like last year. Good couple first announcements, then just a lot of dross.

Re: Computer Games Thread

Like I say was just a kid when I played it first time, who knows if I'll like it now. I loved blitzball back then, and couldn't stand it now, so not holding out a lot of hope. Anyway, on football manager '19 I started a game with Slough. Thought it might be a different prospect to managing a prem te...

Re: Computer Games Thread

I tried to 100% it and yeah, the sidequests are what made it interesting, and remember the combat being good too. Only ever played it the once like a decade a go so will be good to play again anyway.

Re: Computer Games Thread

I wasted several hundreds of hours on that game. Speedruns are really interesting to watch too if you have half a day. Currently playing the shit out of Osu Mania. Might see if I can get Etterna working too. Back in the day as a kid I didn't know lots of the tricks to get sphere levels quickly, or ...

Re: Computer Games Thread

I've done dark valefor, shiva, ifrit and ixion, so got the rest to go. As a kid I just did those then basically tried to do Zanmato on the rest inc. penance. I wanna do it legit this time, but getting luck and fortune spheres is so time consuming. I also missed tidus' crest/sigil thing after the yun...

Re: Computer Games Thread

Final fantasy 10 remaster, was my favourite game as a teen. I forgot how time consuming trying to get your stats up to the point where you can beat the hardest superbosses is. About 65 hours in and still grinding away at that. I've done thirty seasons in football manager 2019 in two different playth...

Re: Next Announcement

A post from a user on another forum "Exactly. It seems to me that even though it's a metal festival the majority of Bloodstock fans aren't quite open to Metalcore. Each to their own of course but metal is metal regardless of a sub genre label." I must admit, my inner arsehole really enjoy...

Re: Next Announcement

So many people with the "parkway drive are heavy so they're metal" talk. Heavy does not automatically equal metal - otherwise pretty much all drone, harsh-noise, power-electronics, death industrial, hardcore, and even a fair amount of shoegaze and dark ambient are metal - probably other st...

Re: Next Announcement

Swallow the Sun - they've actually announced a band I like and listen to. It baffles me that people like Powerwolf that much. Boring music. I'd say exactly the same about Swallow the Sun - each to their own!! They just seem to be a joke band. Nothing great about them musically, the songs are amusin...

Re: Next Announcement

With regards to the Saturday headliner, when Vicky said it was a band who had never played before did she mean Bloodstock Open Air or Bloodstock in general? My point being that while Saxon headlined the first indoor Bloodstock in 2001 they haven't played at Bloodstock Open Air yet. They played thir...

Re: Next Announcement

Swallow the Sun - they've actually announced a band I like and listen to. Chucking a doom band like them on the mainstage during the early hours of the afternoon is a bit weird. They're actually under Evil Scarecrow - what a joke. Maybe some other UK dates around the festival then. It baffles me tha...

Re: What made you Lol Today?

Brutal Assault posting on FB that Dimmu Borgir had dropped out, then literally every comment being "thank god for that!" or some iteration thereof

Re: Next Announcement

Blind Guardian did get special guests. Only 2 years ago. And Demons and Wizards, being a rarity, would probably at least get an hour. That said, I think if they were going to be booked they would have been announced by now, and I think the token power metal slots are all full. I thought they'd play...
