    Here is mine. It's often a mess, filled with radio shows and podcasts that I come along and delete every so often to just leave the music.

  • MattyFTM posted a message in the forum topic More recent bombcasts not showing up in premium feed? on the Bug Reporting board.

  • MattyFTM posted a message on the post Abe Returns in Oddworld: New 'n Tasty This Week.

    You know, if I had a spare £400 in my back pocket, I might buy a PS4 just to be able to play this game early. Abe's Oddysee is one of my favourite games of all time. Oddworld is such a fantastic unive...

    I always used to be a fussy eater. Particularly with vegetables. Any green vegetable was a big no no. A lot of other vegetables too. There are still a lot of vegetables that I avoid, but I'm much bet...

    Tacky and Word Crimes are great, and the polka is great, as always. The rest of the album is solid, but probably not my favourite Al songs. Inactive seems cool, but I'm not super familiar with the ori...
