Weekly Digest

Work done for the year and it’s 2 1/2 weeks off. Boom. Looking forward to…doing very little to be honest. Need a recharge. I do have an itch though – mechanical keyboards. It may happen.

The Last Jedi. No spoilers apart from I really enjoyed it despite there being some cheese and also being a tad long. Interesting that the film is so polarising, critics love it but some hate it. Combination of the film not pandering to fan’s (and their many many theories), some flaws if you think about it for more than a minute and maybe the non-PC brigade being annoyed that their heroes are no longer white males? Or maybe it’s just not for everyone. Hey ho. Well worth catching on an IMAX near you.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds – Hot game of the year finally hit the Xbox last week. It’s a mess. Poor frame rates, lag through the game, a real hack of a PC control system on the Xbox, crashes…yet I love it. Aim is to survive and there’s many many ways to do that. Start with 99 competitors and be the last to survive. I’ve got down to the final four but I find the gameplay really addictive, and this is with only one map. It’s been released as an Xbox preview so expect it to improve over the coming months. Reminds me of old Ghost Recon games. Lots of hiding and prepping for the odd skirmish but with a larger map, time pressures and vehicles.
