Tree’s up – Christmas is here. Almost. Is it only me thats looking forward to a crazy week in politics?

Media
Venom – Load of shite. What a waste of a great cast. Better off just being an animated movie.

Red Dead 2 – 68% through story mode…closing in on the finish and still loving it.

It’s December. Christmas is coming…can finally have a mince pie. If only this Brexit nonsense wasn’t still an issue.

Media
Rewatched Dunkirk in 4k. Stunning. Visuals are strong but it’s the audio – so impacting.

Red Dead Online – mmm. Not convinced by this so far. Feels a bit sluggish to play. Still ploughing through single player and loving it.

Whats worse – Brexit or Black Friday? Both topics dominating the news and my inbox. Enough already.

Media
Battlefield V – more of the same in many ways but the tweaks to how your squad works makes it for me. Stunning to look at too.

Red Dead – Still ploughing through it…still loving it.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado – Not as good as the original though I loved the sound and visuals.

Turned 45 last week. I have no words.

Early morning trip to Loch Ard today. Didn’t get the pictures I was looking for but did get some nice drone footage. Must make an effort with the video side of things – I’ve got a fair bit of good video now but can’t be arsed editing.

Media
They Shall Not Grow Old – powerful documentary from Peter Jackson. Brought home the hardships faced during WW1. The transition from B&W to colour was astounding.

Week off work ahead as I turn another year older. It’s just a number, right? Picked up a new iPad Pro which so far has been a joy to use. More on that later in the week.

Media
Outlaw King – a poor man’s Game of Thrones. Bit dull although Scotland shone throughout.

The Walking Dead – This season has been a bit of a return to form. This weeks was doing pretty well…but then they dropped the ball. Shame.

Last weeks Apple event was very interesting. Thinking about a new iPad and maybe the larger one…will try it at the store later this week. It was also good to see some Mac updates especially the Mini. Finally!

Next 3 months are the worst. Dark nights arriving at work, dark nights leaving. Makes the lunchtime walks all the more important.

Media
Red Dead Redemption 2 – believe the hype. Taking my time and doing a lot more side missions than I expected to.

A busy and tiring last fortnight. Made the most of the Autumn weather and had a couple of trips out to Perthshire. Both were glorious and really pleased with the camera and drone shots like the one below.

Also enjoying the new Apple Watch although I do have some niggles. Hope to get a post up later this week on the last 4 weeks of use.

Media
Forza Horizon 4 is just fantastic. A blip last week stopped multiplayer working smoothly but it’s a realy fun game with loads to do and enjoy. However, it won’t get much playtime over the coming weeks…

Red Dead Redemption 2 came out Friday and it looks stunning on the Xbox One X. Proper 4k and HDR and so far it looks and plays really well. I’ve only put around 6 hours in and it does get off to a slow start but the game soon starts to unveil more depth and suddenly there is tons to do but all at your own pace.

Good weekend. Tickled a couple of websites, bit of DIY, out with the camera this evening and actually got some sleep unlike most of last week.

Media
Forza Horizon is just fantastic.

Holedown on iOS and Android is well worth playing. One of the best mobile games this year – so addictive.

Doctor Who – looked fantastic tonight. Well done all.

Autumn has landed – from a gorgeous day on Saturday to…well…shitty rain and wind. Glad I got out and about up North yesterday and saw some of the Autumn colours.

Also been using the new Apple Watch for over a week now and really enjoying it. Big upgrade (for me) over the Series 0.

Media
Doctor Who – great first episode. Jodie Whittaker nailed it, the writing and story were pretty good and the reworked music also landed.

Ant-Man and the Wasp – watchable follow up although nothing very original about it.

Forza Horizon 4 – stunning looking game. Set in the UK and really enjoyable first few days with it, even if the streets are too clean.

A bit late with the update. On holiday from work (back tomorrow) and busy fixing the house, taking photo’s and flying a drone. Normal stuff really. Links this week are pretty Apple heavy – fun fun fun!

Media
Solo – average film and would have probably ditched it half way through if it wasn’t a Star Wars movie.

Bodyguard – well done all involved. Stuck the landing and plenty left to take another series forward.
