RPG Elements-5/10
Graphics:6/10 WARNING: This game doesn't support anything over 1280x900 by default and so requires INI editing or mods.
This is a great Fallout game that will keep you entertained for atleast 100 hours.
Scroll down for breakdown of each segment.

Story: Has really 1 ending that slighty varies from the other by you blowing up a different place/object with different NPCs.
the quests can be fun but most tend to be dull-6/10 Story

Gameplay: The gameplay is where this game really shines set out to explore the commonwealth with tons of perks and no level cap,retaining the awesome fallout feeling with some extra twists added in such as building makes this game stand out-9/10 gameplay

Rpg Elements:Sadly Fallout 4 has lost many of it's rpg elements such as Dialogue. For example speech has been dumbed down to an average of four misleading 4-6 words which barley explain what you can say, persausion is a percentage that increases with charisma skill but with barley any persausion it makes charisma no where near as necessary as the past fallout games-5/10 Dialogue/Rpg Elements

Graphics: I personally don't care about graphics although i will include them in my review for your benifit. Fallout 4's unique artstyle fits in well with it's graphic engine, although not lensflare photorealistic next-generation graphics fallout counters this with it's brilliant gameplay. Graphics have their moments and are not bad or too good but they are solid.-Graphics 6/10

Disclaimer: Most of the problems with this game will be fixed with mods on the PC with exception of the story.

This is about the actual game not about all the hate on the Titans "game"

This is a good RTS for fans of SUPCOM and people who enjoy the RTS genre.
Planetary Ahnihilation includes numerous new features and stratagies on a truly 3D Battlefield, Overall this is a good RTS even though Uber's plans for it may not be.

I Recommend you buy PA:Titans.

Thommo stays calm under pressure

Thommo stays calm under pressure

Thomson is wary of Rangers’ favourites tag for this afternoon’s Co-operative Insurance Cup Final []

Having been a losing finalist in the same competition with Hibs, Thomson is experienced enough to know past form counts for nothing.

He said: “When you’re at Rangers, no matter what game you play domestically, you’re expected to win. That’s a pressure placed on every player who walks through the door at a club like this. It’s a pressure you need to accept and hit head-on.

“The players who succeed here are always the ones who can cope with that pressure. We’re under no illusions, though, and know how tough it’s going to be. However much St Mirren are down battling away against relegation, they’ve got a lot of good players.

“They’ve got a better team and a better squad than their current league position. Everyone wants to play in cup finals, play well, maybe get man of the match or score the winning goal, but it can’t be the fairytale ending for each individual.

“Resilience is good to have as a team and, with a winning mentality, we can push ourselves over the line when we’re not quite firing on all cylinders. It’s a cup final, a one-off, and if we’ve got ambitions to win all three domestic trophies this year, this is the first hurdle that we’ve got to clear.’’

One thing which would put the icing on the cake for Thommo if Rangers win – after 25 previous successes – would be to break his scoring duck this season. The 25-year-old midfielder hasn’t netted since November 2008, when he was on target in a 3-3 draw with Dundee United at Ibrox.

He added: “It would be nice. Every player loves scoring goals, whether it’s in games or even training. I’ve never been known for scoring, which is something I’d love to change. I’d love to be like Kris Boyd, banging it in the net all the time.

“It’s the best feeling in the world when you score a goal. Luckily, the couple I’ve scored have been quite important ones. I’ve scored a few against Celtic and when you play the Old Firm it’s a bigger game and the magnitude of it will be highlighted. I’ve not scored this year, so it would be nice.

“But I like to do the dirty work in a game. Sometimes that gets highlighted as being done well, but other times people can pass you by and claim you don’t do enough. But I’m happy with the job I do for the team. If I could chip in with some goals that would be great, but I think some people miss the fact I run back 70 yards down the park and win the ball back and give it to boys who, without doing that 70 yards, will then go and attack the other team and score us goals.

“I’m happy with the role I play in the team. If I could add goals, great. It’s not through lack of trying, but I seem to find myself at the back of the park instead of further forward in most situations in games. Everyone says midfield is a key role in the team and I’m not just saying this because it’s my position, but I do think games are generally won and lost in the middle of the park. You set the tone. It’s hard for a full-back, centre-half or even a winger to set the tone of a game.

“It’s easier for a central midfielder when it’s hustle and bustle to go and put your foot in, make a crunching tackle – it’s easier to press the ball.”

Thomson is confident there will be no repeat performance today of the sloppy show which saw Rangers draw 3-3 with Dundee United in the Scottish Cup quarter-final at Ibrox last weekend and led to an uncharacteristic blast at his players by Walter Smith

Thomson added: “The manager said in the press that he thought we were a wee bit sloppy. It scared him a wee bit how slack we got in the second half. We should have had the game dead and buried at 3-1 up. We were all disappointed, being in such a good position and then giving Dundee United another sniff and another crack at progressing in the cup.

“We were disappointed, but I think overall it’s not something that’s been in our team or in our game throughout the season. We’re hoping that’s it’s a one-off and it’s up to us as players to go and show the manager that it was a one-off by applying ourselves in the correct way in the Co-op final against St Mirren.”

Thommo - s speech steals the show

Thommo's speech steals the show

Australian fast bowling legend stole the show at the 2016 Allan Border Medal with a memorable and at times off-colour Hall of Fame induction speech.

Thomson became one of just 43 players from the almost 140-year history of Australian cricket to be inducted to the Hall of Fame, alongside Queensland and Australia wicketkeeper Wally Grout.

"Thommo" formed a fearsome pace combination with Dennis Lillee and took 200 Test wickets at 28.01 – only the fourth Australia fast bowler to reach that milestone when he achieved it in his final Test in England in 1985 – and made 50 ODI appearances for Australia.

Jeff Thomson's unique action and outrageous pace made him arguably the most fearsome fast bowler in history, securing him a spot in Australian cricket's Hall of Fame

"Cricket was something I could do for fun. We were lucky in our day we could play for fun," Thomson started his speech with.

"I admire these guys who play now, they've got to work their arses off and play so much cricket – I mean all the stuff they've got to put up with, all the press all media and everything like that.

"We flew under the radar. I played football in the off-season, I did that so I could get away from cricket we didn't have to do it 12 months of the year. we wonder why they all break down, why wouldn't they break down?"

In typical Thommo style, the 65-year-old had the crowd in tears with some ribald jokes that demand viewing of the speech in full to properly appreciate.

Thomson paid tribute to fellow inductee Grout – the pair both hail from the same Brisbane club Toombul, albeit in different eras and roles.

Thomson then thanked his (presumably long-suffering) wife and children.

"For me it's all about the kids and my wife down there, all the sh*t she's had to put up with for 40 years, I mean she didn't get all the trips you girls get down here now," he quipped.

"Mate, we had to sneak them in on planes, they used to stay in some sh*thole down the road … I'm serious now! The guys will tell you, all the blokes, no wonder half of them are divorced.

"The reason you're here, what I'm happy about is all the parents and my parents – my old man is dead but my mum is still alive, she's 97 … thank Christ, sh*t I hope I don't last that long … not the way I drink.

"I'm going to run out of money very shortly, especially tonight.

"It's all those people that help you as a kid, you know the ones that don't come in this room tonight, the ones that do all the sh*t when you're a kid taking you to the games.

"They're never the recognised ones … but they're the ones that ring you up and say well done, so yeah, it's for those people.

The Riverina's own 'Thommo'

A lot of people don't realise we have produced a number of Australian women representatives as well, and two have been captain of the national side.

Leeton-born Patricia Thomson was one of two Riverina female cricketers who represented Australian in women's cricket in the early 60's.

Deniliquin's Mary Ellet was captain of the women's 1963 Australian cricket side that featured Thomson.

The Blackwell twins from Yenda, Alex and Kate, are the most recent Australian representatives to wear the green and gold.

Alex captained the women's side to victory in the World Twenty20 tournament in the Caribbean during the year, while Kate announced her retirement from all forms of cricket in August.

In this three-part series Patricia Thomson talks about the trials and tribulations of being in a national team in the 60's and being female cricketer.

Here - s Jared Leto - s Beyond Perfect Oscar Acceptance Speech

Here's Jared Leto's Beyond Perfect Oscar Acceptance Speech

Actor Jared Leto accepts the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role award for 'Dallas Buyers Club' onstage during the Oscars at the Dolby Theatre on March 2, 2014 in Hollywood, California.

Finally, an acceptance speech we didn't want to hear played off by the orchestra.

Jared Leto's acceptance speech at the 86th annual Academy Awards Sunday night blew away viewers for being as incredible as his hair.

Leto won the first Oscar of the night (talk about setting the bar high) for Best Supporting Actor for his role as a transgender person diagnosed with AIDS in Dallas Buyers Club .

In his speech, Leto expressed his love for host Ellen DeGeneres, told a sweet story about his mother, and thanked his big brother and fellow Dallas actors. If that wasn't enough, Leto also expressed solidarity for AIDS victims as well as the citizens of the Ukraine and Venezuela.

Venezuelan protesters had tweeted at leading Oscar nominees asking that they mention the country when accepting their awards. As a result, Venezuelan TV networks were not allowed to air the Oscars' broadcast.

Here's Leto's full speech:

Incredible. Ellen, I love you. To my fellow nominees, I’m so proud to share this journey with you. I’m in awe and have so much respect for you all. To the Academy, thank you. In 1971, Bossier City, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative, to work hard and to do something special. That girl is my mother and she’s here tonight. And I just want to say, I love you, Mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream. To my brother, Shannon, the best big brother in the world, you’re a true artist. Thank you so much for sharing this insane and amazing adventure that is 30 Seconds to Mars, and for being my best friend. I love you. Thank you.

To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here and as you struggle to… to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible… We’re thinking of you tonight. And this is, is incredibly special as well because there’s so many people that helped me get here. And I just want to say thank you to Focus Features, to Mick Sullivan, to Jim Toth, to Jason Weinberg, to Emma Ludbrook, to Kelly Adams, to the entire Dallas Buyers Club team. Matthew, I love. Jean-Marc. And this for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS and to those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you love, tonight I stand here in front of the world with you and for you. Thank you so much and goodnight.

Jared Leto gave a lovely, bracing, open-hearted, and full-throated speech. Well done.

Side note. Jared leto is one of the coolest guys that has ever existed.
