  1. Still on Battle Chasers Nightwar. 54 hours in and still loving it. Very impressive JRPG and great to see the comics come to life via this game.
  2. This is out next week (October 3rd). The more I see of the game, the more impressed I am. I also managed to get my PC fixed so I have been playing the beta prior to release. Really impressed by the game and the art style, which was expected being that I am a big Joe Mad fan. Anyway, the gameplay is good fun and they have constantly been updating the beta and taking feedback. Really positive early signs. I think it will be great on PS4 too and can't wait to get my hands on it next week...
  3. More gameplay from Gamescom: http://m.uk.ign.com/videos/2017/08/24/battle-chasers-nightwar-gameplay-demo-ign-live-gamescom-2017
  4. I had started to turn on Bruce (although no abuse was aimed his way from me) over the first couple of games. This was mainly due to his form over the past few months and the style (or lack thereof) football we had been playing. I just couldn't see any improvement since the summer, yet I know we have a very good squad. Now Bruce seems to be realising just what the players at his disposal are capable of. I'm baffled by the fact it has taken him so long to realise this but it's better late than never I suppose. This doesn't mean I'm fully convinced he is the right man to take us forward though. I was happy with his appointment and his previous record of multiple promotions. I thought he was the right manager for us and he could still be but I have my doubts. Two wins have papered over the cracks for now. One at home, in which we got slightly fortunate in the second half and another in the cup (at home again) against a lower league team. Yes, both were great results and I praise Bruce for the way he set up the team for those games. There were issues in the Norwich game though and two lovely finishes from Hourihane got us out of jail in the second half. We started to fall too deep as we have been known to do under Bruce. This needs to stop and we need to play like we did in the firsr half more consistantly. The big test comes on Friday. It will take more than two wins to convince me that Bruce is the right man for the job. I really do hope he is as we could do with some stability. If the performances drop back down though and our away form doesn't improve then I will be hoping he gets the sack. Here's hoping it doesn't come to Xia needing to sack him though, as we would hopefully be doing very well if that is the case...
  5. Whatever happens, there won't be any movement now until after the Bristol game. It just doesn't make any sense when we have three games coming up over the next seven days. After this fixture congestion the international break would be the perfect time to sack Bruce, if it is going to happen at all. I'll get behind Bruce whilst he is our manager but I am extremely concerned and have pretty much lost all hope in his ability to get us promoted. I want him to be a success for us but the football has been woeful and the results have been even worse. I could live with average football if we were grinding out results but we aren’t. I was behind the appointment of Bruce to be honest, as he has past experience of getting teams promoted and seemed like a good option at the time. For some reason it just hasn’t worked here though and I think after the Bristol game he needs to go. It just hasn’t worked out sadly…
  6. Tempted by the Fossil Q Explorist too and would like to know any views on previous iterations of the Fossil Q if anyone has one (or has used one). I have asked for either the Fossil Q Explorist or Gear S3 Classic from the other half for Christmas. Hoping the Gear S4 may be released prior to Christmas but there has been no news on it yet. Hopefully hear something at the end of August or early September. If not then it will be between the Q Eplorist or Gear S3 Classic.
  7. Really wish he would have just said straight up or kept quiet until he has made his mind up. Not a good time to be leaving us supporters in the dark and sending out cryptic messages...
  8. That is how I have interpreted it too but could be wrong. Basically sounds like he is saying he needs to support Bruce in order for him to improve and reach his full potential.
  9. Further update on this. The game is coming out on 3rd October and it is also available through Steam. They seem to be having a few issues with the Switch version due to the console but it should be released on time for every other platform.
  10. I have finally taken the plunge on this one. With the new update and the fact it is £9.99 on the PS Store, it just seemed rude not to. Had a couple of hours on it last night and I actually quite like it so far...
  11. Could be a great signing but only time will tell. I just hope he can stay fit, show us how good he really is and kick the rest of the team up the backside. This could prove to be a massive signing for us and I'm a little excited to be honest. He may well be an idiot off the pitch at times and a little old. However, I still think and hope he can drive us towards promotion...
  12. The game will now also be available on the Switch at launch, for anyone that may be interested in that. Also, there is a PC review of the game (in it's current beta form) that can be found here: http://www.thumbculture.co.uk/battle-chasers-nightwar-pc-preview
  13. I'm still backing Bruce. The football we have been playing under him hasn't been good enough at times, yet our form has improved under him. He has a great records of getting teams promoted at this level so I'm willing to give him until midway through next season. We should be pushing for promotion from the start next season. If it comes to November/December and we aren't up near the top end of the table then I think Xia will need to reassess the situation. Sacking Bruce at that period in time would mean we would effectively be starting from scratch again but would probably be a risk worth taking at that point. I think Bruce has earned more time at the moment and has the previous record to show he is more than capable of getting us promoted. He will now have a full preseason ahead of him with the squad and the squad will be of his own making, so there can be no excuses next season. This is a results game and I think (and hope) Bruce can get us promoted. Only time will tell. If we do get up under Bruce then the managerial situation will need to be looked at again in my opinion. I'm not convinced he would be the right man to take us forward in the Premier League, although he would deserve a change to prove otherwise if he gets us promoted. Let's worry about getting promoted first anyway...
