    This is Hip-Hop.

    Currently i'm listening to this album of experimental hip-hop, i'm not really into hip-hop but this album is pretty good.

    Jordan Peele's 'Us'

    I think that's more your issue and expectations unfortunately. It's totally understandable considering how great Get Out was but I wasn't looking for the next Get Out cause those first time hits are once in a blue moon. So much of this worked for me though, the characters, acting, directing, atmosphere, sound and cinematography were all great. The story may not be as complex as Get Out and a bit more of a slasher/home invasion but I found the story it was telling compelling and extremely creepy. I didn't spend any time expecting it to be or live up to Get Out.

    Wonderboy looks like a busted flush now - he came in with that awkward style but like the similarly cagey and shot shy Machida before him the elite level soon pick that apart.
  6. Is there any game that is really a *game* on the ZX? All games that i ever played on it was simple casual games, i don't see how this thing would sell.
  7. When a boss resets, ie you run away and he goes back to his default starting state, his health resets. Including the dots. So you can get one deathblow in maximum.
  8. I’ve been playing around with JtD and keep getting this, but can’t really figure out when or why it happens. I’ve had it where the other guy was fighting him and I retreated around a corner for a quick breather, but when I came back he had both his dots back. What are the rules for avoiding it?

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    Well think I got it on GamePass can't remember. Anyway same could be said for getting games cheap more dismissive and perhaps less inclined to give them a try? Or at least give them some time? I know this happens to me with sale games or now GamePass games. Just spend a few moments on something and then move on because I haven't invested too many £££'s. Anyhow GoW4 picked up for me on the second 2/3rds of the game - really enjoyed it. But then I've liked all the games in the series really. Just good old shooters big guys with big guns. A bit of a story.

    What’s the worst film you have ever seen?

    Pacific Rim I believe is the worst film I have seen. I can't even mutter it's name I thought was so bad. Agree with @Pockets on the Harry Potter film/s though. I have only made it to the second one, and I've tried to like it/them. But the acting, and lack of story in the second one, puts them on my list of bad movies.

    What score did they give the first game?

    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    I just caught up with this having had it sat on my sky box for months. Avoided the thread but I came away with the view the second half was a massive drop off in terms of story quality, but was still very watchable because of the incredible performance by Jodie Comer. The ending was a cop out but I'd have had a lot less interest in a second series if it hadn't gone the direction they did (which I guess was why they went that way). Benefit of coming to something so late is I shouldn't have long to wait for second season.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    Agree. It was boring compared to the first one. edit: trailer for the third one looks good though.

    The worst crimes in music

    All true. I think Empire even did a feature referring to it as ‘doing a Donnie Darko’ it never fails to rile me though, your example above especially when done in the context of a particularly loathesome product, eg the mother fucking Lloyds Bank horses on the beach to ‘Youre Not Alone’
  18. I can't figure out if I've broken a couple of game triggers Fairly early on spoilers Fought some general this afternoon and figured I'd try and get a surprise drop on him, then wait until he'd de-aggroed before trying again. First strike was dead on, hid, waited, tried for a second strike and he'd got both deathstrikes back! Sufficed to say we all had a good laugh and I died. Also something I was disappointed with (not with the game) was Vati's beginner's guide. I remember his Bloodborne one was really helpful, but the one he's done for this is full of spoilers. I stopped watching after a couple of minutes.
  19. I never caught the original podcast but have followed some of the back and forth online and just caught episode 1 of the new HBO documentary (watching episode 2 right now...). Anyone else catch this yet? I'd be interested to know the views of seasoned Serial followers. Edit: holy shit, the first taped interview with jay is like something out of Wilt.

    Battlefield V

    If you thnk BFV does this well, go have a gander at Insurgency and Post-Scriptum. Jaw dropping stuff. (csgo doesn't compare because it's a vastly different game and far more arcadey)
  21. 12 or so hours in. Random thoughts. - I am in love with this video game. - It is ridiculous that a company like Activision has published a video game that is this difficult in the year 2019. The amount of people who are going to bounce off this in the first few hours and trade it in is... well, I think it's going to be more than average. - As others have stated, seriously - don't worry too much about the Dragonrot mechanic. It seems to be real periphery, side-quest related stuff, and from what I can tell, nothing ever gets locked out permanently. Some stories might just be on hold until you decide to reverse the rot - but don't hold me to that. - It definitely gets easier (or at least, less painful) the further you progress. Based on nothing but my own personal experience, I think there are two major roadblocks early on, and I will refer to them as The Butterfly and The Bull. Those are the two instances where you really have to just learn the fights, and execute. There are no tricks, you can't really level your way out of them - you just have to throw yourself at the wall until you break through. Once you do, you start to get a lot more in the way of varying paths, and options for what you do next. - Further to the above, after those hurdles, you do find little areas that make for good XP/Sen farms for when you just need to stock up a little. The Ashina Resevoir is a nice little spot. - You don't have to fight everything. Dumb to say out loud, but worth remembering. If you're just trying to get to the next save statue, just zip away. - Save up for the "15% health back on every Deathblow" skill. You wont regret it. A large part of me thinks that should have just been a mechanic baked into the game from the very start, akin to Bloodborne's health recovery system. It's borderline essential to making meaningful progress. - No multiplayer is going to hurt a lot of people. Say what you will about the alleged difficulty of the Souls series, but for every boss in that entire series, you had the option of calling for help when it all became too much. No such luck here. - Anyone else get a strong feeling that a lot of the staff who worked on Dark Souls 2 were put on this? There are areas where the lighting and texture work of the environments esepcially just screams DS2. Which, at the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, means that a lot of other From staff are working on something else... - I don't blame anyone who decides that it's all a bit too much, but I cannot overstate how rewarding it feels when everything finally clicks. You really do have to unlearn a lot of bad habits before that happens - you have the most powerful blocking ability, with no stamina bar, and the most generous parry window of any Souls game to date, and you have to remember that at all times. Nearly every stupid death I've succumbed to so far has been some variant of me not taking advantage of those basic, fundamental concepts. - Running through the early areas when you're a few levels higher is gleeful. It takes that feeling of running through Undead Burg with your level 100 character, and unshackles it completely, before handing it a grappling hook. There are areas where, 5 hours ago, I was cowering in grass waiting for an enemy to de-aggro before trying to move on. Now I'm a spinning maelstrom of death, and a zone that would have taken me 20 minutes early on is now over in seconds. For me, this is easily up there with Bloodborne. Any reservations I had around them moving away from the tried and tested formula have been dispelled completely, and that From Software can now effectively make a game in any one of three different series, and have that idea be equally as exciting to me... I can't think of many developers who have that at their disposal. What a game.
  22. Haven't got the game yet, but one thing I like the sound of from these impressions is precisely the thing some are disappointed with, the lack of endlessly deep customisable rpg elements. It's one of the things I think always put me off Souls, having to get my head around stats and muddle around with endless bits of armour and weapons in menus. It's too intimidating. And just looking at the last page of the Nioh thread and reading about the deluge of largely pointless loot gives me a headache. Not knocking those games at all. But I think I might actually welcome the difficulty here if it's more divorced from stats and grinding and all that. Although I'm sure this game will likely destroy me either way!

    Also worth noting that it came out after Crackdown 1.
