Shooting some pool, playing darts, pouring a pint, flirting. Sure, you can do these things in real life, but why leave the comfort of your own room?

I’m going to put my hands (together with my sword and shield) up and say I really enjoyed this over-the-top outrageously violent arena based combat game. It just works.
The physics of your controller movement is crisp, the hits connect and have satisfying results, it has a nice moving mechanic using your arms which is better than teleportation and helps burn a few extra calories.
There are a number of other arena based games on the HTC Vive and I’m yet to find a dud personally, but this has to rank as one of the better ones.
Lord Buckethead is an experienced political campaigner, leader of the Gremloid party, and possibly humanity’s future overlord. Having garnered three-digit numbers in the Finchley and Huntingdon constituencies battling Margaret Thatcher in 1987 and John Major in 1992, he took a respectible 249 votes in Maidenhead against Theresa May (beating the Christian People’s Party, Just Political Party, Monster Raving Loony Party, two independents, and Elmo).
Watch John Oliver announce Lord Buckethead as the UK’s future Brexit negotiator.

Wikileaks: Saudi Arabia’s rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted… told they faced “another 7/7” and the loss of “British lives on British Streets” if they pressed on with their enquiries.
Wahhabism (as part of the Salafi movement) = The ideological concept of destruction and terrorism (suicide bombings, indiscriminate attacks) which is the root of current home-grown terrorism. From Saudi Arabia. We have now sponsored it for years and years to come.
