I have a very simple desire to improve at FIFA. In this series I will be showing my development throughout the game as I aim to be proficient in the Legendary band of the game at some point in the future. It's a tall order but one I want to fulfil.
In this first game I show what I can do playing as the Women's US team against England. This will be my fall back game to show my development and I hope to play around with different facets of the game as time goes on. So for now I hope you enjoy and I'll see you on the next video.
Lists are one of the easiest way to create an argument on the internet. So a list of Comic Book characters is always going to turn up a few surprises. The list below was created by Best Offers Bingo as they sampled over 1,200 of their users. Now we do not have demographics as in age and sex but it appears this is a very male dominated list.
It's interesting that the top are two thirds of the DC trinity with Wonder Woman appearing at number 5. Unsurprisingly Spider-man is the highest Marvel character and its great to see Hellboy appearing on the list even if it's at number 13.

Anyway earlier this year I ignored my usual displeasure and together with a host of other BC team members popped to Bluewater on opening day to see Avengers Age of Ultron. Honestly after the film I was underwhelmed but decided that I would buy the film, one to keep my Marvel film collection up to date and two so I could reassess the film in the more comfortable surroundings of my house.
Now though there is the choice of which format to choose. In recent times I have opted for digital purchases due to a lack of discs and the convenience of digital titles. The fact I can watch on phone, pc, tablet or Chromecast makes buying from Google Play a no brainer in my opinion. I'm sure if I was an iOS user iTunes would be my preferred option but as I'm not it isn't.
The great thing about getting a digital product was the fact the film was released a week early. The price of £9.99 for SD and £13.99 for HD was acceptable. I plugged for the HD version and got to watching. I watched the film on all my devices but the syncing was first class and jumping between 3 devices during one viewing left me with no issues. There is also the nice touch of pausing a scene and getting the actors names on screen. This almost eliminates the where is she from? Conversation that generally goes on after nearly every film.
There is of course a downside to digital; you don't actually ever have the product in your hand. What would happen if Google went bust? Would this copy of the film be mine or would my money would be wasted. These are questions I do not know the answers to but I'm sure if Google collapsed I would be worried about more than just my film collection. You can always download your purchases but that eliminates the multiple device flexibility. The other issue is the lack of features, there is no obligatory blooper roll, deleted scenes or audio commentary that will appear in the physical versions. This to me is not a worry but I'm sure some film fans will set this as a major reason to avoid this version.
All in all I'm very happy with the purchase, I will happily go to the cinema to see the occasional film but I have become accustomed to my choice of digital viewing. Now it's just time to watch it again and start my review.
What this is
The random chat is changing a little to be just as the title says. This is going to function as my place to chat about things that can come from anywhere, from TV to films to Sport to gaming. Most things are up for discussion even though I will avoid the key no no's like Religion, Politics and Macro Economics (Micro economics of the gaming/comics world though is still fair game) and of course the biggie whether the Spice Girls were the greatest musical group of all time or not. I hope to bring a taste of something different in these posts and please feel free to comment where you see fit.
