  1. Altered Carbon - Netflix Cyberpunk

    I was always amazed that there weren't many more people who refused to use transporters in Star Trek, given this rather large caveat! As to Altered Carbon's stack tech, I'm unsure. They do stress that the 'consciousness' of the person is transferred, rather than just memories etc, so I don't think it's just a human photocopier. If it were, I expect the vast majority would have no interest in the tech. What do they care if some iteration of them lives to see tomorrow? I guess it would be beneficial as a safety net if you were a parent, but still.
  2. Happy! New SYFY series - Christopher Meloni

    Really enjoyed it as a whole, but I do wonder about the wisdom of a second series. There was a perfect moment to end on in the final episode, and apparently the comics did end there, but with S2 they’ll be into writing completely original material and that almost never goes well.
  3. See also Star Trek: Insurrection for a feature length version of shuttlecraft crash entertainment.
  4. It was a slightly jarring change of pace, but I liked how it played into the overarching theme of Matt Damon’s character.
  5. I guess Sony didn’t realise that everyone who demanded Knack on PS+ for the last year or two was doing so facetiously.
  6. Shadow of the Colossus Remake (Bluepoint)

    I never did finish the original. Not because technical issues ruined it for me (though they were a problem), but because I found my character and his selfishness to be repellant. Every time I brought down one of these ancient, oddly dignified creatures it just hit home that my only motivation was ‘someone I love is dead, and I won’t accept that.’ Curiously, I’ve never had that kind of reaction to a game before or since. I usually play the good guy, but I’m not exactly sanctimonious, so to have the role I was playing overshadow the enjoyment I got from figuring out how to take the Colossi down was a surprisingly powerful experience. I’m glad to hear Bluepoint have done such a good job with it, as there’s definitely something special and unique about SOTC. It’s the kind of game I’m glad exists but never want to play again.
  7. Star Trek Discovery - new TV show materialising 24 Sep 2017

    I can see what they were going for, but once again the writing just made it look like she was being a weirdly impulsive twit.

    For a character who was brought up as a Vulcan, Burnham certainly has problems applying logic to any given situation.
  9. Monster Hunter: World

    Cool, thank you both for the clarification.
  10. Monster Hunter: World

    Graphics and animations look great, sure, but the creature not showing any impact/damage to being hit puts me off a bit.
  11. Thor: Ragnarok

    Finally got round to seeing this. It was good, but too much humour on the whole. The jokes mostly landed, but there was one crammed in every five minutes, and considering the universe changing events it sometimes created a weird tone, especially in the finale - like going to a jovial funeral. I may have missed something here, but...
  12. The best part would be insisting that someone don the white gloves if they wish to handle your tribble.
  13. Ryan Reynolds wants to remake Clue

    But Clue was great. I’d be a lot more open to remakes if they focused on films that could’ve been great but didn’t quite work. Christ knows there are enough of those. It’s easy to forget The Thing was a remake as it improves on the original immeasurably.
  14. Great gaming transitions.

    I’d say the beginning of The Last of Us is a good one. A cutscene with Joel and his daughter chatting, one of her waking up later on, then she just stops moving. The graphics haven’t changed, so it takes a second for you to realise ‘I’m controlling it now?’
