This is a link post I Can’t Believe It’s Not Scorn!
I liked Scorn for the most part but £30 for a game you can finish in a few hours is asking too much.

I don’t know if it’s the general aesthetic or the throat singing but I sense there won’t be a single original idea in this one. Different studio, by the way.

This is a normal post I played scorn on gamepass.
Unfortunately to the casual observer, the aesthetic screams 'This is a Doom game!'. Whereas it's actually a puzzle game. Personally, I found it boring.

Saturday afternoons in front of Grandstand watching every sport imaginable (rally cross in Mini Coopers with Murray Walker going loopy as they crashed), including football, rugby, and everything else that ended up on Sky.

Though I lived in a cardboard box in the road and couldn't get Sky, due to the dish being too big and toppling the box over. Hard times.

This is a normal post I think we're all missing the clear takeaway from this, close down sky sports and return all sport to free to air telly thus freeing up the cash that would have been spent on subscriptions for other uses thus helping struggling families.
Creates jobs at the other broadcasters but we're not heartless, a free package of day old sporting highlights* will still be available on Sky.
